    Greece's radical leftist Syriza party is to start trying to build an anti-austerity cabinet and prevent fresh elections, a day after the conservatives failed to form a coalition government.

    Alexis Tsipras, Syriza's leader, is holding talks with President Carolos Papoulias on Tuesday and will be given three days to form a government.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Athens.
