Greece to do 'whatever it takes' to avoid bankruptcy

Help

Greece's cabinet has approved fresh austerity measures demanded by the eurozone and IMF in return for a 130bn-euro ($170bn; £110bn) bailout.

The draft bill must now be passed by the Greek parliament and approved by European finance ministers.

Five ministers have resigned from the government over the issue, with one junior party in the coalition saying the demands were "humiliating".

Unions began a 48-hour strike on Friday with protesters clashing with police.
