Greece 'meets bailout conditions' after debt swap

The Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos has said the participation of Greece's private sector creditors in the country's multi-billion-euro bond swap exceeded all expectations.

The Greek deal with its lenders is the largest restructuring of government debt in history.

Under the deal more than 100bn euros of Greece's debt would be written off.
