Greek mayor murdered over alleged scam

Police in northern Greece say two men have been arrested following the brutal shooting of a small-town mayor over an alleged embezzlement scam.
The body of Pagheo Mayor Triandafylos Koukoudis was discovered early Thursday in the trunk of his car left at a deserted location. A coroner said he had been shot eight times, including six shots to the head.
Pagheo is a small town about 700 kilometers (435 miles) north of Athens.
Police arrested the municipal treasurer and assistant treasurer over the murder and say the crime is linked to the alleged embezzlement of several hundred thousand euros (dollars) of municipal funds.
