Greece is set to go to the polls again after days of coalition talks failed to produce agreement on a new government.

In elections on 6 May, a majority of Greek voters backed parties opposed to austerity plans demanded by the EU and IMF in return for two bailouts.

The Greek president will appoint a caretaker government today.
