Greece's parliament has passed a controversial package of austerity measures, demanded by the eurozone and IMF in return for a 130bn-euro ($170bn; Â£110bn) bailout to avoid default.
The vote was carried by 199 votes in favour, with 74 MPs voting against.
Coalition parties expelled over 40 deputies for failing to back the bill.
The vote came amid largescale violence in Greece, with protesters outside parliament throwing stones and petrol bombs, as the BBC's Mark Lowen explains.
