Greece credit rating cut to CC, outlook negative-S&P

NEW YORK, July 27 (Reuters) - Standard & Poor’s on Wednesday cut Greece’s sovereign credit rating further into junk territory, lowering it to CC from CCC, saying the European Union’s proposed debt restructuring puts the country into a “selective default.”

The outlook on the debt is negative, S&P said in a statement. (Reporting by Daniel Bases and Caryn Trokie, Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
