Greece meets emergency loan conditions

Greece has passed a crucial test in securing emergency loans as it continues to battle its debt crisis.

Following an inspection in the country at the beginning of August, the European commission has said that Greece has met the conditions to receive the second part of a 110bn-euro ($145bn; £91bn) rescue loan.

Greece has already received 20bn euros of the loan, which was agreed by the EU and International Monetary Fund.
