Greek parliament debating no-confidence motion

Greece’s parliament has started debating a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras filed by New Democracy opposition over a deal to solve the name dispute with Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

The debate is expected to conclude by 2 p.m. Saturday.
