Major U.S. stock-indexes fell to session lows in early afternoon trading on Wednesday as the outcome of the negotiations between Greece and its international creditors remained up in the air. Creditors demanded sweeping changes to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' tax and reforms proposals, adding fresh uncertainty to talks aimed at unlocking aid to avert a debt default next week. Greece needs fresh funds to avoid defaulting on a $1.8 billion debt repayment to the IMF on June 30.
