Eurozone finance ministers have approved a 130bn euro ($170bn) second bailout package for Greece to resolve the debt-ridden nation's immediate repayment needs.

There is much scepticism that an economy in such a poor state could pay the loan back soon enough before the country is mired in a deeper recession.
