The death toll from the deadly fires in eastern Attica has climbed to 88 as one of the victims that had been hospitalised, a woman aged 42, passed away early on Saturday.

According to the latest figures from the Health Ministry, the number of fire victims that have been hospitalised with burns stands at 46.

One more child missing in the Athens wildfires has also been confirmed dead on Saturday: 13-year-old Dimitris Alexopoulos. Authorities confirmed the death of the 13-year-old boy who went missing on Monday afternoon shortly after the deadly wildfire swept through the East coast in North-West Athens.

Dimitris was with his grandmother, his grandfather and his uncle in Kokkino Limanaki in Mati, the beach to where hundreds fled to save themselves from the fires most hit by the fires. The four had reached the beach in a car.

The boy was missing since then.
