The 57 relatives of those killed in this week’s train disaster have been pleaded with forgiving by the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
Mr. Mitsotakis wrote on Facebook that two trains cannot be traveling in separate directions on the same track in Greece in 2023 and no one would notice.
Days of protests have passed.
While thousands of people joined a rally in the Athens capital on Sunday, there were reports of clashes with the police.
According to the police, 12,000 people showed up to the protest.
Several protesters launched gasoline bombs and lit trash cans on fire. The demonstrators were quickly removed from the main Syntagma Square by police after they reacted by using tear gas and stun grenades.
Hundreds of black balloons were reportedly thrown into the sky by the demonstrators in remembrance of the deceased.
