Pasok to attempt Greece coalition

Pasok leader Evangelos Venizelos is to try to form a coalition after two earlier attempts failed.

The leader of Greece's far-left Syriza bloc, Alexis Tsipras, abandoned his efforts to form a government and an attempt by New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras failed on Monday.

Financial chaos has sparked huge social unrest in Greece and led to a deep mistrust of the parties considered to be the architects of austerity.
