Egyptians Emand El Khamisi, 50, Mahmoud Moussa, 46, and Albanian Jeka Gani, 35, risked their lives alongside many other local fishermen on July 23, 2018 rescuing dozens of people fleeing the blaze which swept through the seaside resort of Mati, some 30 kilometers northeast of Athens. One hundred people died in the flames or the sea that evening. Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos signed a few days ago a decree granting the Greek citizenship to the three men.
