Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras casts his ballot in the bailout referendum at a polling station in Athens on July 5, 2015Greece voted in a tightly fought referendum Sunday that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said would determine its "destiny" in the eurozone, as the debt-laden EU country teetered on the brink of financial collapse. "No one can ignore the will of the people to live, to live with determination, to take its destiny into its own hands," Tsipras, appearing relaxed and wearing an open-necked white shirt, said after casting his ballot in Athens. Polling stations were open across the country of 11 million people -- on far-flung Aegean islands, in the shadow of the 2,400-year-old Parthenon in Athens, to the northern border shared with fellow EU state Bulgaria.
