Greece: Pressure on PM Papandreou to resign

Greece's main opposition leader has repeated calls for PM George Papandreou to resign to break the political deadlock over the debt crisis.

Mr Papandreou is seeking to build a government of national unity, but Antonis Samaras of the New Democracy party says the PM must resign first.

Some reports say a coalition deal and Mr Papandreou's resignation could be announced as early as Sunday evening.

Mike Wooldridge reports.
