ATHENS, June 16. Refugees from Asia Minor report that armed bands are ravaging Fokia, where already they have massacred hundreds of Greeks, including priests and children.  Numbers of the inhabitants fled from the district, and are now starving. Many of the refugees reaching here have marks of bayonet or bullet wounds on their bodies.
