Greek debt crisis: Major rallies due ahead of vote

Rival camps in Greece are set to hold major rallies in Athens ahead of Sunday’s crucial referendum on international bailout terms.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to address the rally for the “No” vote, opposing the terms.

EU leaders have warned that a “No” vote could see Greece leave the eurozone.

Greece’s economy is already being squeezed after the country lost access to fresh funds. Banks have been shut and limits imposed on cash withdrawals.

Greece has been in deadlock with its creditors for months but only called the referendum last week.

There has been no campaigning as such, the BBC’s Chris Morris reports from Athens – just a few chaotic days as supporters and opponents of the governing Syriza party have jostled for position.

Both sides are now racing to reach voters before time runs out, with “Yes” and “No” posters vying for space.
