Greece gets closer to a fresh financial start this morning, as eurozone finance ministers approve a $170 billion bailout for the struggling country. Euronews explains what got the deal done.
 

“…Athens has committed to deeper cuts, which are unlikely to revive an already beleaguered economy. Harsher austerity will be hard to sell to Greek people already protesting on an almost daily basis.”
 

The International Committee of Red Cross is asking for a two-hour daily truce in Syria, so humanitarian aid can be delivered. But members of the opposition tell Al Jazeera they don’t think the Red Cross is being fair, and their side hasn’t heard from the group.
 

“One opposition group in Homs now says nobody from the organization has been in contact with them, and seemed to criticize the terms of the initiative, saying it favored the Assad regime.”
 

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is being questioned as part of an inquiry into an alleged French prostitution ring. Reports say Strauss-Kahn asked investigators to question him last year, saying it would clear his name. CNN has more.
 

“Dominique Strauss-Kahn is in trouble again. You might remember here in the city, there was all that press because he was charged with the attempted rape of a hotel worker in New York.”  

 

Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney by 10 percentage points in the GOP race, according to Politico. But neither candidate is on a hot streak in the media, according to MSNBC
 

“…part of running for president is controlling the national media narrative. In the national media narrative, Santorum’s having a horrible 96 hours, but this thing of Romney’s — from Thursday — lives on. Not just on this program, but you hear people talking about it all over the place.”
