A Day Of Uncertainty In Greece: PHOTOS

Greeks faced an uncertain future on Monday, one day ahead of a deadline for the country's government to pay back 1.6 billion euros to the International Monetary Fund or default on its debts.

Greece's banks and stock market remained closed on Monday, after talks between the country and its international creditors broke down over the weekend. Supermarkets, petrol stations and ATMs saw long lines throughout the day. "I can't believe it," Athens resident Evgenia Gekou, told Reuters. "I keep thinking we'll wake up tomorrow and everything will be OK. I'm trying hard not to worry," she added.

Thousands of Greeks rallied in Athens on Monday evening to show their opposition against a proposal of international creditors that would free new funds but see strong austerity measures in return.

Take a look at some of the most impressive images of the day
