Bank deposits in Greece have hit their lowest in more than a decade, according to data released Friday, as Greeks concerned about the painfully slow pace of their government's talks with bailout creditors withdrew savings in an orderly but steady flow.It urgently needs to wind up negotiations with creditors on what reforms it must make to get a vital 7.2 billion euro ($7.8 billion) payment from the bailout plan that has kept it afloat for five years.Greece has four debt payments to the IMF through June 19, and government officials have claimed it will be unable to make the first, a week away, without a deal.Household deposits at the end of April were 139.4 billion euros ($151.9 billion), down from 145 billion euros in March and 172 billion in December.
