Greece votes to stay in the euro - while protesters battle police

So finally it has been decided: Greece votes to stay in the euro - but at a humiliating cost, some say.

It has been reported that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had agreed to the harsh terms as part of an €86 billion bailout from Eurozone leaders.

The Greek parliament passed a raft of austerity measures to secure a three-year European bailout – despite the agreement coming two hours after the deadline. It means that other European parliaments can now vote on the plan, too.

In the meanwhile, violent protesters hurled petrol bombs at riot police (photo above) after surrounding the Greek parliament ahead of a final deadline for the country's €86 billion bailout deal.

Watch the video below of violence in Athens' streets:
