An extensive section of the Hellenic Rails (OSE) train track network was once again targeted by vandals on Thursday, OSE said.

An extensive section of the Hellenic Rails (OSE) train track network was once again targeted by vandals on Thursday, OSE said.

OSE employees discovered the vandalism at dawn Thursday, in the Kiourka region, where vandals had cut electricity cables resulting in a halt in train circulation in that section.

The Athens-Halkida-Athens route, as a consequence, has been disrupted and passengers are being transferred to buses for the route, while large delays have also resulted in several other itineraries.

OSE said that incidents of sabotage of its tracks have increased in recent months, with three such incidents recorded in the Athens-Oinoi section in as many weeks.
