Greece to mark student deaths in 1973 uprising

Greece's new Prime Minister, Lucas Papademos, has won a crucial vote of confidence in parliament to pass drastic austerity measures.

It will help Greece to gain access to the latest round of bailout money and prevent it from defaulting.

The vote could encourage investor confidence, but it is unlikely to be popular among the Greek people.

A demonstration will take place on Thursday to mark the deaths of 20 students during an uprising against the military government in 1973.

Mark Lowen reports.
