Former Greek PM Tzannetakis dies at 82





Former Prime Minister Tzannis Tzannetakis, who led a short-lived coalition government in 1989 while the country was rocked by corruption scandals and political turmoil, has died at 82.

Tzannetakis' office said he died in an Athens hospital Thursday but gave no other details.

During his three-month tenure as prime minister, Tzannetakis headed a coalition government that included his conservative New Democracy party and the Greek Communist Party.
