The Greek Parliament is set to approve the country's new international bailout deal later today as more protests, against austerity measures in return for rescue funds, are planned. Athens received a second bailout this year. Combined with its first rescue package, the country stands to receive over 172 billion euros in loans from eurozone countries and the IMF. But Greece's creditors claim the country's most recent austerity measures could be 'accident prone'.
