EU leaders urge Greek politicians to support new cuts


EU leaders have urged all Greek politicians to support new spending cuts and tax hikes.

The warning comes after they met in Brussels and agreed a second massive rescue package for Greece, if it adopts austerity measures.

They say there is no alternative if debt-laden Athens is to qualify for a second massive bail-out.
