Newly appointed Greek Finance Minister Tsakalotos is welcomed by Eurogroup President Dijsselbloem and French Finance Minister Sapin at a euro zone finance ministers meeting on the situation in Greece in BrusselsBy Paul Taylor and Renee Maltezou BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras launched a desperate bid to win fresh aid from skeptical creditors at an emergency euro zone summit on Tuesday, before his country's banks run out of money. With Greek banks down to their last few days of cash and the European Central Bank tightening the noose on their funding, Tsipras tried to convince the bloc's other 18 leaders, many of whom are exasperated with five years of crisis, to authorize a new loan swiftly. Merkel, under pressure in Germany to cut Greece loose, made clear it was up to Tsipras to present convincing proposals after Athens spurned tax rises, spending cuts and pension and labor reforms that were on the table before its 240 billion euro ($262.7 billion) bailout expired last week.

Insurgents attacked a NATO convoy and an office of the Afghan spy agency in the capital as the Taliban pressed ahead with their bloody summer offensive despite recent moves towards dialogue. President Ashraf Ghani said on Twitter that a team from the High Peace Council (HPC), the body tasked with opening talks with the Taliban, had gone to Islamabad to meet the militants.

Former SS officer Oskar Groening -- dubbed the "Bookkeeper of Auschwitz" -- sits in the courtroom during his trial in Lueneburg, northern Germany, on July 7, 2015German prosecutors said Tuesday they were seeking three and a half years' jail for a former SS officer known as the "Bookkeeper of Auschwitz" in closing arguments at his historic trial. Oskar Groening, 94, stands accused before a court in the northern city of Lueneburg of 300,000 counts of accessory to murder in the cases of deported Hungarian Jews sent to the gas chambers between May and July 1944. Public prosecutor Jens Lehmann said in closing arguments that his sentencing request was based on the "nearly incomprehensible number of victims", but mitigated by "the limited contribution of the accused" to their deaths.
