Greek crisis: Talks to form coalition government begin

The leader of the party that narrowly won Greece's election has begun urgent talks to form a coalition, saying he wants to forge a "national consensus".

Antonis Samaras, of the New Democracy party, met President Karolos Papoulias to be given a formal mandate.

Mr Samaras said he would seek changes in the terms of a bailout agreement reached with the EU and IMF.

Matthew Price reports.
