Eurozone bailout fund faces key Slovakian vote

Slovakia will vote later on measures to bolster the powers of the eurozone bailout fund, seen as vital in combating the bloc's debt crisis.

After Malta approved the plans late on Monday, Slovakia is now the last of the 17 member states to vote. All other members have approved the measures.

But doubts remain about the outcome of the vote, with coalition partners unable to agree a compromise deal.

Will Grant reports.
