Global financial markets tumbled Tuesday as investor sentiment caved to the worsening government-debt crisis in Europe. The Capitol Hill grilling of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. executives on their role in the housing-market meltdown also undercut Wall Street, traders said. Financial shares led the market lower, although Goldman's stock rebounded. U.S. stocks, which Friday had hit 19-month highs, suffered their biggest sell-off since early February. The Dow Jones industrial average slumped 213.04 points, or 1.9%, to 10,991.

After living far beyond its means for years, Greece's day of reckoning arrived this week. "No more," said bond investors, who suddenly demanded sky-high interest rates on Greek debt, in effect making it impossible for the Athens government to borrow another euro. Market rates also surged on bonds of other heavily indebted European states, including Portugal, Spain and Ireland.
