              Eurozone countries have told the Greek government to present their proposals in detail no later than Thursday, European Council President Donald Tusk says, warning that negotiations for another aid package will end within days if no consensus can be reached. "Our inability to find an agreement may lead to the bankruptcy of Greece, and the insolvency of its banking system, and for sure it will be most painful for the Greek people," Tusk said. "Until now I've avoided talking about deadlines, but tonight I have to say it loud and clear, that the final deadline ends this week."

 2 yrs | South Carolina Senate passes bill to take down Confederate flag at State House, now goes to House

              The South Carolina Senate has voted 36-3 to pass the Confederate Flag Bill that would take down the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House and move it to a museum. The bill now goes to the South Carolina House, where it will face three additional rounds of voting before it can go to the governor's desk. The killings at a black church in Charleston last month sparked a debate over the use of the Confederate battle flag, which critics say has become a symbol of racism. Flags at the South Carolina State House were lowered to half staff after the Charleston shooting, but the Confederate flag remained at full staff, angering many.
