A man holding a Greek national flag and a placard walks in Constitution Square in AthensATHENS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Greece blew hot and cold with its euro zone partners on Tuesday as it struggled to avert a potentially catastrophic funding crunch this month, when it must make a big debt repayment to the IMF as cash reserves dry up. Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said after talks in Paris and Brussels that he expected euro zone finance ministers to acknowledge next Monday progress towards a cash-for-reform deal, opening the way to easing Athens' liquidity crisis. "We are certainly going to have a fruitful discussion on May 11 that will confirm the great progress that has been achieved and will be yet another move, yet another step, in the direction of a final agreement," he told reporters after meeting European Economics Commissioner Pierre Moscovici. Earlier, Moscovici had warned the euro zone would not even begin to discuss longer-term funding and ways to reduce Greece's debt until Athens had agreed a "consistent, detailed, complete" economic reform program with its creditors.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reads from a column during her keynote address at the 18th Annual David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum at Columbia University in New YorkBy Amanda Becker LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will call on Tuesday for a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants during a campaign appearance in Nevada. Clinton is scheduled to appear at a Las Vegas high school Tuesday afternoon during her third campaign trip in an early-voting state after declaring last month that she would be seeking the presidency in November 2016. Rancho High School, where Clinton will take part in a roundtable discussion, is approximately 70 percent Hispanic and less than 10 miles north of the Las Vegas strip of casinos, a magnet for workers from all over the world. Clinton is expected to say in her remarks that a "true solution" to the country's immigration problems would include "nothing less than a full and equal path to citizenship", according to a campaign statement.

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron (C) gestures as he speaks at an election rally in St Ives on May 5, 2015Britain's political leaders on Tuesday began a final push for votes ahead of this week's knife-edge general election while preparing for the likelihood of drawn-out negotiations once polls close. Prime Minister David Cameron, whose Conservatives are neck and neck with the opposition Labour party in opinion polls, launched a 36-hour tour of the country that will see him campaign through the night up to the last minute. Neither of the two main parties is expected to win a clear majority in the House of Commons after Thursday's vote. Nevertheless, Cameron urged voters to give his party a clear mandate to govern, saying the alternative was years of "backroom deals" and "bribes" as Labour sought to form a government with the support of the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP).
