Merkel to Tsipras: Nein!
According to Reuters/The Sydney Morning Herald (published locally at 3:36 AM AEST), German chancellor Angela Merkel "has ruled out new negotiations with Greece until after it votes on a proposal from creditors, leaving virtually no hope left to avert a midnight default despite a plea from Athens for a last-minute bailout extension."

This comes after the Greek government, during the last hours of June 30th, asked for a deal before bailout expired, while thousands of Yes supporters protest before the Greek Parliament. (here)
