Greece's debt negotiations are entering a critical phase. Athens must repay €1.6 billion to the IMF by the end of this month or it will default.
Various proposals for a solution have been circulated, including the sale of its most important port.
The Greek opposition and Athens' local mayors have accused the government of allowing an oil spill to spread unchecked. But the government says everything is under control and all will be "forgotten in a few days."
A buy-out of the Greek port by Chinese shipping giant COSCO is closer to completion, defying protest. Meanwhile, Germany, pleased by Greece's economic reforms, has given its stamp on new credit for its government.
Greece has sealed the sale of its biggest port, Piraeus, to COSCO, the state controlled China Ocean Shipping Company, marking the second major privatization for the country since 2015.
