The leader of Greece's Socialist Party, Evangelos Venizelos, says he has made progress in efforts to form a coalition after inconclusive elections on Sunday.

Mr Venizelos, the third political leader to try, called his talks with a small left-wing party a "good omen".

The head of that group said he was ready to join a coalition that kept Greece in the euro while rejecting the terms of an international bailout.
