Greece experiences financial market recovery

Bond sale raises optimism for the future of the Greek economy, despite anger over austerity continuing to flare.

    Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel is to visit Athens amid signs of optimism about the Greek economy.

    Greece has returned to the financial markets with a billion dollar bond sale - its  first in four years.

    Officials say it is proof that years of austerity have begun to pay off, but not everyone's convinced.
