Fears the Greek government might collapse

Greece's governing coalition has again failed to agree on how to resume transmissions by state broadcaster ERT, shut down by the government last week.

Evangelos Venizelos, leader of junior partner Pasok, said there was now "an issue regarding the very existence... of the government".

PM Antonis Samaras wants to replace ERT with a smaller broadcaster.

Disagreement within the coalition over the issue has raised fears that the government might collapse.
