Greece: TV Screens Still Blank Amid Dispute

(AP) Greece: TV screens still blank amid dispute
ATHENS, Greece
State TV signals remain blank in Greece as parties in the governing coalition were still at odds over what to do with public broadcaster ERT.

Samaras and his partners agreed to continue negotiations and will meet again Wednesday.

Shares on the Athens Stock Exchange were up near 3 percent midday Tuesday, as markets in Europe were mixed.
