13-year-old held for murder of two kids in Greece

Athens, Aug 3 (IANS) A 13-year old uncle of two children has been arrested in Greece after the kids were found drowned in an irrigation channel, police said.

The bodies of the two brothers from Bulgaria - aged four and seven - were found on the outskirts of Strefi village in the Peloponnese peninsula, about 350 km west of Athens, Xinhua reported.

The two children were sent by their mother to deliver a package of food to relatives, police said.

Police said the teenaged suspect confessed initially to his father and then to police that he pushed his nephews in the channel, because he was jealous of the attention they were receiving from the rest of the family.
