    Forty-years since the last recorded case of malaria in Greece, the disease everyone thought was a thing of the past is back.

Higher temperatures caused by global warming and the economic crisis have both contributed to the resurgence. Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor Wood reports from Laconia, Southern Greece.
