Eurozone summit on Greece called for Tuesday

Posted:

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- European Council President Donald Tusk says he's called a eurozone summit for Tuesday to discuss the situation in Greece.

Voters in Greece resoundingly rejected creditors' demands for more austerity in return for rescue loans Sunday.

The opposition accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of jeopardizing the country's membership in the 19-nation club that uses the eurozone and said a "yes" vote was about keeping the common currency.

Germany and France asked for the summit after the "no" vote won.
