Greeks count a mixed blessing

Emergency aid package of $17bn comes at high price as the threshold for those who must pay taxes is lowered.

    Euro zone finance ministers have agreed on the latest emergency aid for Greece as it tries to stave off bankruptcy. More than $17bn will be paid to the government over the next fortnight.

    For Greeks facing harsh austerity measures, however, that help has come at a high price as the threshold for those who must pay taxes is lowered.
