Dutch army to help Greek fire effort

The Netherlands is sending three Cougar helicopters and 27 soldiers to Greece to help with efforts to stem the dozens of forest fires, which have so far left over 60 people dead. The helicopters, which are capable of carrying 2500 litres of water, will be put to work around Elefsis, 20 km south of Athens.
