Greek minister says Europe won’t let Athens go under

Referendum campaign posters that reads "No" and "Yes" in Greek are seen on a bus stop in AthensGreece’s finance minister accused creditors of trying to "terrorize" Greeks into accepting austerity, warning Europe stood to lose as much as Athens if the country is forced from the euro after a referendum on Sunday on bailout terms. After a week in which Greece defaulted, shuttered its banks and began rationing cash, Greeks vote on Sunday on whether to accept or reject tough conditions sought by international creditors to extend a lending lifeline that has kept the debt-stricken country afloat. The left-wing government is urging a "No" vote, saying Greece’s European partners are bluffing when they warn that would mean a Greek departure from Europe’s single currency, with unforeseeable consequences for Greece, Europe and the global economy.

Tunisia’s president declares state of emergency after hotel attack

A boy holds a Tunisian flag as he stands near bouquets of flowers laid at the beachside of the Imperiale Marhabada hotel, which was attacked by a gunman in SousseTunisia President Beji Caid Essebsi declared a state of emergency on Saturday to hand his government more authority following an Islamic militant attack on a beach hotel, where 38 foreign tourists, mostly Britons, were killed. Tunisia's emergency law temporarily gives the government more executive flexibility, hands the army and police more authority, and restricts certain rights such as the right to public assembly. The attack on the Sousse beach resort last Friday followed a gun attack on the Bardo museum in Tunis in March: two of the worst militant assaults in Tunisia's modern history, and a pressing threat to its vital tourist industry.

Iraqi jets drop leaflets over Mosul promising to recapture city

A sign by the Islamic State is seen in the city of MosulIraqi jets dropped leaflets over Mosul telling residents that Islamic State fighters would soon be driven from the northern city, saying details of the operation would be broadcast on a new radio station. The city has been under Islamic State control since the Islamist militants took over in June last year, sweeping through most of Iraq's Sunni Muslim provinces towards Baghdad. The Shi'ite-led government has promised a military offensive to retake Mosul but progress has been slow, in part because of Islamic State gains elsewhere.
