    Greece's International lenders have cleared the way for the country to receive the next installment of its $150bn bailout package.

    Officials from the EU and IMF say while its austerity programme remains largely on track, Greece needs to make an "extra effort" to reduce its budget deficit.

    Meanwhile, rubbish collectors in Athens, Greece's capital, have been on strike for days, protesting cuts in wages and benefits imposed by austerity measures.
