  13. 00:00: Here's a recap of the day's events from Reuters
  14. France and Germany called for an emergency summit of eurozone leaders to discuss Greece's stunning referendum vote on Sunday to reject bailout terms, as calls mounted in Berlin to cut Athens loose from Europe's common currency.
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's deputy said Athens had wrecked any hope of compromise with its eurozone partners by overwhelmingly rejecting further austerity.
    Merkel and French President Francois Hollande conferred by telephone and will meet in Paris on Monday afternoon to seek a joint response. Responding to their call, European Council President Donald Tusk announced that euro zone leaders would meet in Brussels on Tuesday evening.
