LISBON, Portugal (AP) — The Portuguese government minister in charge of emergency services resigned Wednesday after 106 people were killed in wildfires this year. Interior Minister Constanca Urbano de Sousa tendered her resignation and Prime Minister Antonio Costa accepted it, the government announced on its website. Urbano de Sousa said in her resignation letter published on the website that she wanted to quit after 64 people were killed in a wildfire four months ago, but Costa asked her to stay. She repeated her request after 42 people died in another spate of wildfires last weekend.
