Greek MPs have approved tough economic measures required to enable an 86 billion Euro, eurozone bailout deal to go ahead.

The legislation includes tax rises and an increase in the retirement age.

229 lawmakers voted Yes, 64 voted No and six abstained.

Ahead of the vote, protesters threw petrol bombs at police during an anti-austerity protest close to parliament, and police responded with tear gas.
