Greeks pin hopes on German elections

Poll closely watched in Greece where Chancellor Merkel's austerity policies are blamed for huge spending cuts.

    Voters in Germany go to the polls this weekend for national elections, but their decision will be felt elsewhere in Europe.

    The campaign is being closely watched in Greece.

    Although Germany has contributed to two bailout loans to Greece, Chancellor Angela Merkel's austerity policies are widely blamed for huge spending cuts.
