Greeks' eroding faith in the state

As EU holds meeting on terms of Greece's debt restructuring, signs point to a dwindling public faith in the government.

    As eurozone finance ministers meet in Brussels to reach a deal on the extent of losses Greece's private-sector bond-holders, some Greeks have expressed more faith in the "troika" of international creditors than in their own government.

    The decline of faith in the state comes as the nation is in urgent need of increased European bailout funds to avoid bankruptcy.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from Athens on the mood among the Greek people.
