Greece starts EU and IMF talks on aid deal


Greece has begun talks with the European Commission and International Monetary Fund (IMF) over the terms of emergency bail-out aid.

The talks cover austerity measures Greece must take during the next three years to reduce its debt mountain.

The start of the meeting between the Greek government, IMF, European Central Bank and EU Commission was delayed due to the travel chaos caused by the Icelandic volcano.

Malcolm Brabant reports.
