Eurozone finance ministers discussing
Eurozone finance ministers have reached agreement on a vital second bailout for heavily indebted Greece.
According to the BBC, the deal, which came after more than 13 hours of talks in Brussels, will provide Athens with loans worth more than 130bn euros (£110bn; $170bn).
Greece needs the funds to avoid bankruptcy on 20 March, when maturing loans must be repaid.
In return, Greece will undertake to reduce its debts to no more than 120.5% of its GDP by 2020.
After five straight years of recession, Greece's debts currently amounts to more than 160% of its Gross Domestic Product.
The euro rose on reports of the deal.
The agreement was announced early on Tuesday by Jean-Claude Juncker, prime minister of Luxembourg and chairman of the eurozone finance ministers group.
Juncker said the "far-reaching" deal would lead to "a very significant debt reduction for Greece" and insure its future within the eurozone.
The head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, who also took part in the negotiations, said the deal "should give enough space for Greece to restore its competitiveness".
She added that she would hold further discussion on the agreement during a meeting of the IMF board in the second week of March.
The agreement could resolve Greece's immediate financing needs, analysts say, but seems unlikely to revive the country's shattered economy.
The BBC's Stephen Evans in Brussels says it will mean deeper cuts in public spending that Greece had planned to.
A first rescue package worth 110bn euros in 2010 was not enough to avert Greece's deepening crisis.
The deal also means that private lenders to Athens would get less of their money back, our correspondent adds.
The holders of Greek debt have agreed to a 53.5% "hair-cut".
Eurozone leaders and the IMF said in October that Greek debt should be reduced to a more sustainable level of 120% of GDP by 2020.
But some members doubt Greece's commitment to its spending pledges and want strong mechanisms to ensure its debts are paid.
Successive rounds of austerity measures, demanded by Greece's international creditors have failed to restore growth and have provoked clashes between protesters and police.
The Greek government fell last year after ex-Prime Minister George Papandreou called for a referendum on the eurozone rescue package.
He was replaced by Lucas Papademos, an unelected technocrat who is expected to lead Greece until parliamentary elections in April.
Measures passed by parliament last week set out 3.3bn euros' worth of cuts to salaries and pensions, and health and defence spending - sparking a fresh series of protests.
Greek Finance Minister, Evangelis Venizelos has said he now expects the "long period of uncertainty" to end.
