Bailout Expected But Greece Required to Cut Spending, Sell Assets

However, Greece will be forced to agree to further cut spending and to sell state property in exchange for the emergency funding.

Protests have increased in intensity in the days leading up to the meetings that forced the government to shuffle the cabinet. The government also faced a confidence vote Tuesday that could see the government toppled.
