Greece remains a key focus in the financial market as the country's new left wing government tries to negotiate a new deal with its partners in the 19-country eurozone.

Today, finance ministers from that group said they will hold a special meeting next Wednesday to discuss Greece's debts from its $270 billion bailout. The new government in Greece wants that debt cut in half, which the eurozone has so far said it will not do.

Officials from Greece and Germany met in Berlin this week and the BBC's Jenny Hill reports on how Greeks and Germans there are feeling about the new tensions between the two countries.
