A shop owner, left, sits outside his shop at Lydra street a major shopping area in capital Nicosia, Cyprus, Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Banks on this island nation have already been shut for a week.

Businesses can't pay suppliers, fill stock orders or pay their employees' wages. (AP Photo/ Petros Giannakouris) less
