(ANSA) - BELGRADE, MAR 1 - Greek Transport and Infrastructure Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis resigned on Wednesday in the aftermath of a deadly train collision in central Greece, the daily Kathimerini reported. "It is what I feel is my duty as the smallest sign of respect to the memory of the people who died so unjustly and assuming the responsibility for the deficiencies of the Greek state and the political system through the years," said Karamanlis, quoted by the daily. Authorities meanwhile said at least 40 people were killed and dozens were injured when two trains collided head-on near the city of Larissa. (ANSA).
