A man casts his vote as the map of Europe is seen in the background at a polling station in Athens, Sunday, July 5, 2015. Greeks began voting early Sunday in a closely-watched, closely-contested referendum, which the government pits as a choice over whether to defy the country's creditors and push for better repayment terms or essentially accept their terms, but which the opposition and many of the creditors paint as a choice between staying in the euro or leaving it. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greeks were voting Sunday in a bailout referendum that will decide the country's future, with opinion polls showing people evenly split on whether to accept creditors' proposals for more austerity in exchange for rescue loans or defiantly reject the deal.

The moon sets behind a Greek flag over a polling station in AthensBy Paul Taylor BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Four great crises around Europe's fringes threaten to engulf the European Union, potentially setting the ambitious post-war unification project back by decades. The EU's unity, solidarity and international standing are at risk from Greece's debt, Russia's role in Ukraine, Britain's pursuit of opt-outs and Mediterranean migration. Failure to cope adequately with any one of these would worsen the others, amplifying the perils confronting "Project Europe".

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras casts his ballot during the Greek referendum, in Athens, on July 5, 2015Polling stations were open across the country of 11 million people -- on far-flung Aegean islands, in the shadow of the 2,400-year-old Parthenon in Athens, to the northern border shared with fellow EU state Bulgaria. The European Union and international investors were intently watching the poll, which was the biggest challenge to the European single currency since it came into being in 1999 and was adopted by Greece two years later. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras insists a 'No' victory would strengthen his hand in negotiations with the country's international creditors.
