A family tragedy took place at Atalanti, northwest of Athens. On Wednesday, the neighbours of a couple entered their house, concerned about not having seen them for a while, and found the 51-year-old man dead from gun wounds.

His 42-year-old wife was found dead in another room, after having suffered multiple knife wounds. Both bodies were found in pools of blood with a gun next to the man. Initial signs point to a crime of passion, police said.
