German Chancellor Angela Merkel casts her vote at the German federal parliament, Bundestag, in Berlin, Germany, Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. The German Parliament has given its overwhelming backing to a deal aimed at trimming Greece's debt load and keeping the country financially afloat. Lawmakers voted 473-100 on Friday to back the complex deal reached by European finance ministers earlier this week. The agreement paves the way for Greece to receive 44 billion euro (US $57 billion) in critical rescue loans, without which the country would face bankruptcy and a possible exit from the euro.
