Greece Debt Crisis: Eurozone Summit Reaches Agreement

Eurozone leaders have reached agreement over a third Greek bailout after marathon talks in Brussels.

EU chairman Donald Tusk said leaders agreed “in principle” on negotiations for the bailout, “which in other words means continued support for Greece”. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that after a “tough battle”, Greece had secured a “growth package” of €35bn (£25bn), and won debt restructuring.

Greece will now have to pass reforms demanded by the eurozone by Wednesday.
