Mood in Greece is 'like slow death'

Coalition party leaders in Greece are thought to be close to announcing a deal on a new austerity package that will help prevent a default on Greece's debts.

It is expected to be based on the conditions set by international lenders, which include a 20% reduction to the minimum wage, as well as additional cuts to already hard-hit pensions.

While everyday Greek people wait for news, the mood on the streets of Athens appears to be bleak.
