Greek minister calls on nation to reject bailout deal

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's development minister is urging the nation to vote against the country's bailout deal with international creditors in a July 5 referendum.

Panayiotis Lafazanis says Greeks will answer "with a resounding no" in the vote.

Lafazanis spoke early Saturday, after an emergency cabinet meeting during which Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced his intention to call the referendum.
