ATHENS (Reuters) - Two foreign gunmen carrying explosives hijacked a Greek bus with 26 passengers on Wednesday and demanded to go to Russia, one of
the hostages said.
Albanian and Russian diplomats were called by police to the scene to try to pin down the nationality of the gunmen, who took over the public transport
vehicle in an Athens suburb early in the morning.
Some Greek media quoted the Albanian ambassador as saying the hijackers "may be Albanian," but there was no confirmation.

The Hijackers have released 5 passengers already for medical
reasons, and have stated that as soon as they recieve a driver to take them to the Airport the Hijackers will release all of the Women. At the Airport
the Hijackers want a plane to take them to Russia. Though unsure of how this will turn out it sounds like
these Hijackers are just looking for a ride and don't really wnat to hurt anybody or see anyone hurt.
