Apr 27 – The island of Chios celebrates Orthodox Easter in style as parishioners of rival churches pound each other with fireworks.More than 30 thousand rockets made from the ingredients of gunpowder are fired during the ritual, and police cordon off the area around the churches, which are one kilometre apart from each other, for safety.Air raid sirens are rung just before each volley. Scores of foreign and Greek tourists come to the island to watch. When it began over a century ago there were several injuries.No-one has been reported injured several years now but the event had led to at least four fires in the surrounding brush.Deborah Kyvrikosaios reports.
