A few 'small issues' remain, but up to 86 billion euros may be available in time for debt payment

Greece and its international lenders clinched a multibillion-euro bailout agreement on Tuesday after marathon talks through the night, officials said, raising hopes that aid could be disbursed in time for a major debt repayment due next week.

After a 23-hour session that began on Monday morning, exhausted Greek officials emerged in a central Athens hotel to announce that the two sides had agreed on terms of the three-year agreement, barring a couple of minor issues still being ironed out.
