IMF agrees to give Greece 3 billion euros
The International Monetary Fund approved on Friday just over 3 billion euros ($4.2 billion) to Greece, the latest installment of a rescue package aimed at helping the country pull back from an impending debt default.

 

The move by the executive board had been expected after a decision last week by eurozone finance ministers to give Greece their portion of a 12 billion euros ($17.4 billion) loan payment that is part of a 110 billion euro ($259 billion) package agreed last year. (AP)
