Re: Tharsivoulos Lykourezos, the captain of a speedboat that collided with a tourist boat off the Greek island of Aegina, leaving four people dead, has appeared in court and was given until Friday to prepare his defense.<br />
Relatives of the victims shouted insults and were held back by police as the 77-year-old arrived at the courthouse in Greece's main port city of Piraeus.<br />
The speedboat called Duente collided Tuesday with a tourist boat called Antonia carrying more than 20 people from the island to a beach on a nearby islet. The dead included a 5-year-old girl and her father. Authorities initially said the child was about 9.<br />
The health ministry says 16 people in all were hurt, with five requiring hospital treatment. Two suffered serious injuries, including a woman whose leg was partially severed.
