Greek MPs pass crucial bailout reforms

Greece has taken a crucial step towards a bailout after its parliament passed a second set of reforms, the BBC  reports.

The passage of the measures means that negotiations on an €86bn European Union bailout can begin.

The reforms include changes to Greek banking and an overhaul of the judiciary system.

Thousands demonstrated outside of parliament as the bill was debated, with protests briefly turning violent as petrol bombs were thrown at police.
