Germany's finance minister has warned Cyprus that its crisis-stricken banks may never be able to reopen if it rejects the terms of a bailout.
Wolfgang Schaeuble said major Cypriot banks were "insolvent if there are no emergency funds".
He was speaking after the Cypriot parliament rejected an international bailout deal that would have imposed a one-off tax on bank deposits.
Frantic talks are under way to try to agree an alternative plan.
