Germany to vote on Greek bailout package

The German parliament is holding a special session on Monday to discuss the bailout package for Greece.

It is expected to be voted through but Chancellor Merkel may need to rely on opposition votes as anti-Greek sentiment grows within her party.

The German finance minister has written to lawmakers urging them to support the package, but could not rule out that Greece might need more cash.

Artur Fischer, chief executive of Berlin Stock Exchange, told the BBC there are "doubts that Germany will support Greece to the bitter end".
