Greek PM Papandreou proposes unity coalition amid clashes

Greek PM George Papandreou is to form a new government as he tries to win support for austerity measures demanded by the EU and IMF.

He will seek to have the government ratified in a vote of confidence in parliament on Thursday, he said.

Greek police clashed with anti-austerity protesters near parliament, and unions held a general strike.
