Ordinary Greeks suffer as leaders strike EU deal

Greek citizens skeptically watched their political leaders strike a deal in Brussels as they suffer back at home.

    Many Greek citizens have lost their businesses or jobs due to the economic crisis and believe worse days are yet to come.

    People feel worried that their first fiscal fates are tied to forces wholly out of their control.

    Eurozone leaders have unanimously agreed on a bailout deal for Greece on Monday.

    Shortly after the annoucement, Alexis Tsipras, the Greek prime minister, said that the deal is "the best possible" and that his team managed to avoid "the plan of the financial suffocation".
