article headlineGreece will request an extension of its loan agreement from its euro zone partners tomorrow morning, a Greek government official said today. Athens was initially expected to ask for an extension today. "The request will be submitted tomorrow," the official said on condition of anonymity.

Instead it wants to extend an agreement on loans. (Reuters) For more visit www.businessworld.ie
