(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, 5 MARCH - Athens News has become the latest victim of the economic crisis in an already battered Greek media industry, closing its doors after 61 years in business. The English language newspaper, which launched in 1952, was the only one of its kind in Athens. Its online site has been inactive for months. Online news site Zougla reported news of the closure as well as the announcement that 15 workers who hadn't received their salary since September last year, have been laid off.
