Greece efforts to meet austerity demands 'superhuman'

Greece's public order minister has said the government has made "superhuman" efforts to comply with austerity demands made by the Eurozone.

Christos Papoutsis said Europe should act responsibly, after it was announced that a meeting in Brussels on the bailout had been cancelled.

Eurogroup president Jean-Claude Juncker said face-to-face talks would be replaced by a conference call.

He said Greece had not showed that it was committed to the austerity plan.
