Greek PM asks train crash victims’ families for forgiveness as protests break out – BBC News

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has asked for forgiveness from the families of a train crash which killed 57 people.

The collision between a passenger service and a freight train has caused nationwide outrage, with clashes between protesters and police in the capital city Athens.

Some demonstrators set fire to rubbish bins and threw petrol bombs, while police responded firing tear gas and stun grenades outside the Greek parliament.

In a Facebook message, Mr Mitsotakis said that “in the Greece of 2023… two trains heading in different directions cannot run on the same line and no-one notice”.
