      Orthodox church launches probe into missing money

      ATHENS - The Greek Orthodox Church said Friday it
      has launched an internal investigation into its
      humanitarian branch, Solidarity, amid reports
      that millions of euros from the NGO's coffers have gone missing.

      The Greek foreign ministry is asking to be
      reimbursed $8.6 million that Solidarity received
      for a program it never ran, Father Timotheos, a
      spokesman for the archbishop of Athens, told AFP.

      The Church's governing Holy Synod has chosen a
      special commission of three bishops to carry out
      the investigation, a statement issued by the Church said.
