BRUSSELS--Eurozone finance ministers have approved a four-month extension to
Greece's bailout, two European officials said Tuesday.
The ministers discussed a list of overhaul measures proposed by the Greek
government in a conference call Tuesday afternoon. The deal still needs to be
voted on by parliaments in a handful of eurozone countries--including Germany
and Finland--but approval is expected.
The approval means that Greece's 240 billion euro ($273 billion) bailout from
the eurozone and the International Monetary Fund won't expire at the end of
February and will, instead, run until the end of June.
