ATHENS, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Greece's current account deficit
narrowed in October, 
helped by falling imports due to the country's recession, the
Bank of Greece said on Thursday. 
    The current account balance showed a deficit of 684 million 
euros from 1.47 billion euros in the same month last year. 
    Tourism receipts dropped 19 percent year-on-year to 688.6
million euros in October.
