Greek MPs back €85bn bailout deal

Greece's parliament has backed draft terms for a third bailout in five years after talks that lasted through the night and well into the morning.

The proposed deal involves tax rises and spending cuts in return for a bailout of about €85bn (£61bn).

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' plea for a "Yes" vote was answered despite a split in the ruling Syriza party.

The terms of the bailout will be discussed by eurozone finance ministers later on Friday.

The debate itself was preceded by hours of often angry exchanges in parliament.

Voting started just after 09:30 local time (06:30 GMT), more than six hours after the main debate began. The debate itself had been delayed by procedural issues.

Members of parliament had to agree on the terms so that eurozone ministers could endorse the draft deal, that is worth about €85bn (£61bn; $95bn).

Greece faces an urgent deadline on 20 August, when it must repay about €3.2bn to the European Central Bank (ECB).
