The Greek ambassador to Brazil has been found dead in a burned-out rental car. Police suspect he was murdered.
Ambassador Kyriakos Amiridis was last seen Monday in Rio de Janeiro, where he was on vacation. His body was found Thursday in the trunk of the charred car he had rented earlier.
Amiridis had just taken the post of ambassador this year. He previously served as Greece's consul general in Brazil from 2001 to 2004.
