Ruling Party Declares Victory in Greek Elections

Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis has declared victory for his conservative ruling party in Sunday's parliamentary elections in Greece. However, it appears the New Democracy party will have a slim majority in parliament.

The election came just weeks after devastating wildfires in Greece. Sixty-five people died as the Greek government struggled to cope with the blazes.

Sylvia Poggioli talks about the results with Noah Adams.
