An unemployed man, the father of two children, entered armed a dustbins producing factory and is holding in hostage two factory workers. The man is a former employee of the company. He worked as a driver there but has no work for 8 months now. He is armed with a hunting gun.

When he entered the factory in the early afternoon, he wounded one of its owners and a Bulgarian worker in the company. The businessman was wounded in the chest, and the Bulgarian - in the thigh. Both were hospitalized and are out of danger now.

GRReporter contacted the director of Sismanoglio hospital in Komotini Iraklis Hatzinestoros, who stated that the two injured are in good condition. The Bulgarian citizen who is under 25 years old was admitted with rupture of the quadriceps muscle of the left thigh. According to the director of the hospital, he was shot from the left side and shots fell in his right thigh, without causing serious injuries. The young man has undergone a muscle suturing surgery and now, he is in a room in the orthopaedic ward of the hospital. The owner of the company was injured less severely.

There are many police officers at the scene as well as psychiatrists and specialists in negotiating with kidnappers. Sources say the police have just emptied the area around the enterprise within a radius of two kilometres. An action it expected to be held in the next hour. The specialist in negotiating with kidnappers is very close to the office in which the man is holding the other two hostages. They are his former fellow drivers.

The 62-year-old kidnapper demands are to be paid 31,000 euro as a compensation for the dismissal, which he is claiming that the company owes him and to be brought the drugs he takes daily. He refuses to release the last two hostages until the head of the accounting department goes to him in person to tell him he is appointed in the company again.
