Democratic Left Party Leaves Greek Coalition Government

Greece's Democratic Left party says it is pulling out of the coalition government amid a row over the closure of national broadcaster ERT.

The party is the smallest in Prime Minister Antonis Samaras's coalition. It was not clear whether it would still support the government in parliament.

If it were to withdraw its backing, the two remaining coalition parties would have a majority of three seats.

Earlier, talks broke down on how to resume transmissions at ERT.
