Condition of Greek elder statesman improving

Doctors treating the former Greek President, Constantin Karamanlis, say he has shown an improvement after suffering a heart attack.

Earlier, they described his condition as serious and his chances of recovery as uncertain.

Mr Karamanlis, who's 91, has been a premier six times and is credited with restoring democracy to Greece in 1974 after seven years of military dictatorship.

He retired from public life when his second term as president ended three years ago.
