Athens - Greek authorities say three more people have been found dead from a flash flood that hit a district west of Athens, raising the total death toll to 19.

The fire department says the body of a man was on Saturday found on a factory's premises near the suburb of Mandra, 25km northwest of the Greek capital. The body has still not been retrieved because of debris and a nearby leaking propane tank.

The coast guard also announced on Saturday that a patrol ship had found two bodies, both men, in the sea south of Mandra.

It is not yet known whether the bodies belong to the six known missing people from the flood that struck on Wednesday.
