Multinational task force battles Greek wildfires | DW News



 As wildfires on Greece's Evia island continue to rage, criticism over the government's handling of the situation grows.

The fires on Evia have besieged village after village with residents and tourists forced to flee on boats in apocalyptic scenes.

There are also still concerns over three active wildfires in the Peloponnese peninsula. Hundreds of Greek firefighters have been joined by reinforcements from the Czech Republic, Romania, Ukraine, Serbia and Britain among other countries.

European Union states have contributed 21 aircraft and 250 vehicles.
