Greek PM to start talks with opposition to form a coalition

After a day of endless twists and turns, Greece could be moving towards a new coalition government, to see it through the bailout crisis.

The Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou will start talks with the opposition on Friday when he also faces a vote of confidence in parliament.

He has also said he is ready to drop a proposed referendum on the country's eurozone bailout deal.
