The death toll from July’s forest fires in Greece rose to 97 after another victim succumbed to injuries in an Athens hospital, the country’s fire-fighting service said on Monday.

All of the victims have been identified– among them were four foreigners, a Polish woman with her child, an Irishman and a Belgian.

Greek police are still investigating what caused the fires a month ago in the Athens region, which devastated the municipalities of Mati, Marathon and Rafina.

Some 4,000 houses were destroyed or badly damaged. (dpa/NAN)
