After vote win, Greek leaders face pressure to restart talks
ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Despite triumphing in a popular vote against austerity, Greece's leaders Monday faced the urgent need to heal ties with European creditors and reach a financial rescue deal to prevent it from falling out of the euro - possibly within days. "Time is of the essence," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said after discussing the Greek crisis with French President Francois Hollande in Paris. "(Greek) proposals have to be on the table this week."


What's next, as Greece stumbles toward euro exit
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Greece is at the last chance saloon, thirsty and out of credit. Next stop could be the badlands of euro exit. Without a deal on more bailout loans, the heavily indebted country faces looming financial hurdles in the coming days.


SC Senate votes to remove flag from Statehouse grounds
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina Senate voted Monday to pull the Confederate flag off the Capitol grounds, clearing the way for a historic measure that could remove the banner more than five decades after it was first flown above the Statehouse to protest integration. A second vote will be needed Tuesday to send the proposal to the House, where it faces a less certain future. But Monday's 37-3 vote was well over the two-thirds majority needed to advance the bill.

San Francisco status as 'sanctuary' criticized after slaying
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The killing of a woman at a sightseeing pier has brought criticism down on this liberal city because the Mexican man under arrest was in the U.S. illegally, had been deported five times and was out on the streets after San Francisco officials disregarded a request from immigration authorities to keep him locked up. San Francisco is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The city goes so far as to promote itself as a "sanctuary" for people in the country illegally.


Iran now pushes for an end to arms embargo in nuclear deal
VIENNA (AP) - As negotiators braced for yet another possible extension of nuclear talks, Iran demanded on Monday that any deal should include the end to a U.N. arms embargo as well - a condition backed by Russia but opposed by the United States as it seeks to limit Tehran's Mideast influence. Late last month, Iran and six world powers gave themselves an extra week past June 30 after it became clear that that original deadline could not be met. The sides now are trying to work out a deal that would limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the easing of tens of billions of dollars in economic penalties on the Islamic Republic.


US stocks slip amid global sell-off after Greek 'no' vote
NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks in the U.S. fell broadly following drops in overseas markets as Greeks voted to reject creditor conditions for more loans, but the losses weren't as steep as many had feared. With time running out for Greece to strike a new deal and its banks desperately short of cash, a wave of selling that started in Asia early Monday spread to Europe, then the U.S. By the end of the day, nine of the 10 industry groups in the Standard and Poor's 500 index were down. But the index itself had fallen a modest 0.4 percent.
