    Greek media is reporting that Prime Minister George Papandreou has agreed to step down, as politicians struggle to find a way out of the debt crisis.

    They are hoping to form a coalition government to agree on a new round of austerity measures.

    But outside parliament, tens of thousands of protesters clashed with riot police as anger over the planned cuts spilled over.
