People shout slogans in front of the White Tower in Thessaloniki on July 5, 2015, celebrating a vote rejecting further austerity measuresThe eurozone's poorer former communist nations, having themselves endured painful reforms and austerity programmes, are taking a hard line on Greece after its people voted to reject creditors' bailout terms.

A Confederate flag stands in front of the South Carolina State House in ColumbiaSouth Carolina lawmakers took a step on Monday toward removing the Confederate battle flag that flies at the state house in Columbia, long denounced as a symbol of slavery by critics. A bill to banish the flag from a Civil War memorial on the capitol grounds to a museum passed a crucial second reading in the state Senate by an overwhelming vote of 37-3 after an emotional debate. Numerous elected officials, including Republican Governor Nikki Haley, called for the flag's removal after the June 17 killings of nine African-American churchgoers during Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston.     Photos of the white man charged in the shootings showed him posing with the flag on a website that also carried a racist manifesto.
