Greece's finance ministry said on Tuesday that it was no longer discussing with its European Union and International Monetary Fund creditors a banking transactions tax and a levy on ATM withdrawals, just hours after the finance minister had said such a proposal was on the table. "The proposal ... was withdrawn from the negotiations after the ministry's reaction," the finance ministry said in a statement. Earlier on Tuesday, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told reporters a fee on withdrawals from automated teller machines was being discussed, as an incentive to use web banking and credit cards, although he said no decision had been made.

Iraqi Sunni fighters battling Islamic State (IS) group jihadists alongside government forces fire their weapons on the outskirts of Iraq's Baiji oil refinery on May 25, 2015Iraqi forces closed in on Ramadi Tuesday and launched an operation aimed at cutting off the jihadists in Anbar province before a major offensive to retake the city. Ten days after the Islamic State group's shock capture of the capital of Iraq's largest province, a spokesman said the latest operation was only a preparatory move before an assault on Ramadi. The operation will see a mix of security forces and paramilitaries move south towards the city from Salaheddin province, said Hashed al-Shaabi spokesman Ahmed al-Assadi.
