GREECE HOSTAGE SITUATION

Location: KOMOTINI, GREECE
March 1, 2012

Greek Police Special Unit members prepare to raid a factory where a jobless man injured two people and was holding another two men hostage within the industrial zone of the northeastern city of Komotini, Greece, 01 March 2012. The hostage-taker has been identified as a former employee, a father of two, that was fired by the company eight months earlier. He turned up at factory premises with a shotgun at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday and started shooting indiscriminately, demanding his job back and claiming that the owner had repeatedly assured him that he would be re-hired.
