Greece referendum: Crisis deepens as Greek National Defence chiefs sacked

The beleaguered Greek government shocked its nation – and Europe – for a second consecutive night by sacking all its defence chiefs for no clear reason. After yesterday’s stunning news that it would put the hard-fought euro bail-out deal to a referendum that its population is very likely to reject, financial markets around the world tumbled. But there was yet another shock for European leaders scrabbling about for signs that George Papandreou’s government is in something like control of the spiralling situation. Following a surprise meeting of the cabinet, Greece’s defence minister, Panos Beglitis, sacked the chief of the Greek National Defence General Staff and the heads of the Greek Army, Navy and Air Force.
