Greek parliament adopts budget

Greek parliament on Sunday adopted a 2013 budget including draconian cuts which the government has vowed would guarantee the release of foreign aid needed to stave off insolvency.

According to an AFP count, more than 150 of parliament's 300 members voted in favour of the budget, paving the way for Greece's international creditors to unlock a 31.5 billion euro ($40 billion) tranche of bailout funds.
