A fresh economic crisis would leave Greek banks exposed and see their capital slide by billions, the European Central Bank said Saturday after publishing the results of a latest stress test.The test on four major Greek banks four months before a planned exit from an 86-billion euro bailout program, showed their capital reserves would drop some nine percent on average -- around 15.5 billion euros ($18.5 billion). The four are among 120 banks which the ECB has been monitoring since 2014 and the latest test comes three months ahead of an August 20 deadline by Athens' creditors on whether Greece can exit the current bailout program.
