Greek MPs are debating the bailout deal offered by the EU containing harsh austerity measures, which must be approved by the end of the day if it is to go ahead.

Although Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has stated that said he does not agree with the deal, he has urged MPs to pass the deal through.

With help from the opposition, he vote is expected to pass successfully; however, some hardliners in the ruling left-wing Syriza party are likely to vote against, and the junior coalition party has offered only limited support.

The bailout was agreed in Brussels on Monday by eurozone members after months of negotiations.
