    Defence Minister Yiannos Papantoniou headed up a high-ranking Greek military delegation over the weekend that toured two Greek contingents serving in an international peacekeeping force in Kosovo.

    Taking advantage of the coming holiday period, the minister visited the ?Alexander the Great? and ?Rigas Fereos? camps in Kosovo and congratulated officers and NCOs for their peacekeeping efforts in the region.

    The bodies of eight people, believed to be would-be migrants, were located off the large island of Evia, adjacent to the central Greek mainland, on Sunday morning, the coast guard announced.

    Authorities are conducting a search of the surrounding sea region where the bodies were discovered, reports stated.

    No further information was available at press time. Autopsies are pending.

    In an unrelated development, a Turkish-registered fishing boat carrying five people was intercepted near the eastern Aegean island of Kos early Sunday morning, with Turkish authorities later escorting the vessel back towards Turkish waters after Greek authorities contacted their Turkish counterparts.
