A British tourist believed to have been killed by wild dogs in a forest in Greece's northeast was named by local police on Tuesday.

Greek police confirmed the mauled human remains found on Saturday belonged to Celia Lois Hollingworth, 63.
However a police official told AFP that police were waiting for results to determine whether the woman was killed by animals or her remains were eaten after her death.
"We are not yet 100 percent sure and are waiting on the conclusions of the forensic pathologist," the official said.
"We do not exclude a criminal act" before the body was left in the area, which is frequented by sheepdogs, wolves and jackals, the source said.
Police in the northeastern region of Rodopi were warned on Friday of the woman's disappearance after her brother told British police he was concerned he had not heard from her late Thursday.
According to testimonies given to investigators, the woman left the village of Maroneia on Thursday in a taxi to a nearby archaeological site. The police found the macabre discovery about four kilometres  from the site.
The woman's passport, shoe, bag and hat were found near the remains, police said.
Greek media initially reported that the woman was killed by wild animals, which would be an exceptional case in the country.
