ATHENS, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Greece's Coast Guard has launched on Wednesday a search and rescue operation for a boat carrying some 300 refugees after it issued a distress call in the sea off the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece.

A passenger called the Italian Coast Guard which alerted Greek authorities, Greek national news agency AMNA reported.

Some vessels sailing nearby have joined the efforts to locate the boat amidst difficult weather conditions.

A wet front with heavy rain and strong winds has hit Greece in the past few hours.

Earlier on Wednesday, three elderly people were found dead in the city of Kalamata and its suburbs in the Peloponnese peninsula, which was hit by flash floods.

LONDON Tre'Quan Smith Shirt , May 29 (Xinhua) -- Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn, both contenders in just 10 days to win the keys to 10 Downing Street faced a tough grilling Monday at the hands of a presenter known as the Rottweiler of broadcasting.

Prime Minister May has refused to take part in any live studio debates with other party leaders in the run up to the June 8 general election. It was the first time each leader had faced a live audience during the election campaign.

May and the leader of the main opposition Labour Party are used to facing each other across the floor of the House of Commons for the weekly battle known as Prime Minister's Question time.

This time the questions were put to the pair by veteran political broadcaster Jeremy Paxman.

Famed for his brutal quizzing, until his departure from the BBC, of politicians on the Newsnight program, the veteran interrogator returned to the small screen to challenge, one by one, Corbyn and May.

Pulling no punches, and determined to take no prisoners, Paxman fired difficult questions at the two main figures in British politics.

May has been the clear favorite, but with Labour catching up, one of them will take up residence in Downing Street on June 9.

Paxman's razor sharp tongue asked May, a supporter of remain in last year's European Union referendum, whether she had now changed her mind. He wanted, but failed, to get May to answer in the affirmative. Instead she insisted she sound deliver the Brexit the majority of British people voted for.

Pressed to say Yes to a question about her willingness to walk away from the Brexit negotiations unless there is a good deal, May repeated her message that no deal is better than a bad deal. She invited Paxman to read into that what he wished too.

May failed to win the studio audience over to controversial policies she is planning on care for the elderly and how it would be paid for.

Proposed tough policies by May on pensions and care, have seen the Conservatives lose the massive lead they had until the past week over Corbyn and Labour.

Paxman, being scrupulously fair, gave Corbyn a tough ride as well, quizzing him about his approach to bringing down immigration levels, and whether he would fire nuclear warheads if he becomes prime minister. He even dodged a question on whether he would abolish the British monarchy.

Party campaign managers will now spend hours pondering on who won the battle of the airwaves, May, Corbyn or maybe even Paxman. Most early comments gave different answers, seemingly dependent on political alligences, but the real judges will be Britain's 46 million voters.
