The Greek parliament has passed new budget cuts and tax rises two days before a euro-zone meeting expected to unblock much-needed bailout funds.

The government led by the leftist Syriza coalition passed the widely unpopular bill by 153 votes to 145.

Greece agreed to a third bailout worth 96 billion dollars last year.

Demonstrators gathered outside parliament yesterday, to protest against the new legislation. Euro-zone finance ministers will meet in Brussels on Tomorrow.
