    Euro zone finance ministers have agreed on the latest emergency aid for Greece, as it tries to stave off bankruptcy.

    More than $17 billion will be paid to the government over the next fortnight.

    For Greeks facing harsh austerity measures, that help has come at a high price as the threshold for those who must pay taxes is lowered.
