A European Union flag flutters outside the Athens stock exchangeThe Greek stock market will reopen on Wednesday or Thursday after a month-long shutdown but with restrictions on trading by local investors at the request of the European Central Bank, the Greek securities regulator chairman told Reuters on Tuesday. The Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) has been shut since June 29, after the government closed its banks and imposed capital controls to prevent them from collapsing in the face of mass withdrawals. Greece sent a first proposal to the ECB last week to reopen the stock market as soon as possible because it risked its place in global securities indexes if it remained closed for too long.

The combative 47-year-old -- who also coached Mexico to the last-16 penalty shootout loss to the Netherlands at the World Cup last year -- is alleged to have attacked the journalist, a virulent critic of the coach, at Philadelphia airport hours after Mexico had beaten Jamaica. Herrera, who has yet to comment on the decision, claims he simply shoved the commentator in question Christian Martinoli.
