Greece elections: Voters go to the polls

People in Greece have begun voting in a general election which could result in the country trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders.

The main left wing party, Syriza, says it wants part of Greece's huge debt written off and an easing of austerity measures that it says have hurt millions of people.

But the centre-right New Democracy Party has warned that Syriza could force Greece out of the Eurozone.
