ATHENS, Greece  -- Greece has rejected the latest offer for another bailout. Sixty-one percent of the voters rejected the referendum.

The proposal called for more government spending restrictions in exchange for more money.

Greece's prime minister welcomed the outcome and says it will help future negotiations.

Any new talks will be without greece's finance minister. He resigned after he was told some Eurozone finance ministers and Greece's other creditors didn't want him at the meetings.

A Eurozone Summit is being held Tuesday to discuss Greece's future with the Euro and the European Union.
