    Greece has extended a buyback invitation that is part of its international bailout agreed with the EU and IMF last month.

    The deadline has been pushed forward by a day and a half in a bid to get more offers from bondholders.

    The offer had been due to end on Friday with Athens aiming to buy back bonds with a face value of about 30 billion euros at deeply discounted prices.
