Angry protests in Greece at job cuts vote

Anti-austerity protests have been taking place in Greece ahead of a parliamentary vote on a further round of cuts.

Under the bill, which comes to a vote on Wednesday, more than 4,000 state employees face dismissal this year.

The vote is part of a package of austerity measures linked to the financial bailout from the European Union and the IMF.
