Greece's parliament has approved tough austerity cuts in line with measures set out by international lenders for a new bailout, despite strong dissent. Prime Minister Lucas Papademos received a majority of 199-74 in favour of drastic cutbacks, but a total of 37 MPs from the majority Socialists and conservative New Democracy party either voted against the measures, abstained or voted present - in opposition. On the streets in Athens, Greeks reacted with anger over the additional spending cuts in what is the most violent protests since 2008. Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Athens.
