EU agrees bailout package for euro
"European finance ministers have agreed a €750 billion (£650 billion) EU and International Monetary Fund bailout fund to help shore up troubled eurozone economies teetering in the European Union's growing financial crisis.
"After 11-hour marathon talks, ministers settled on the package they hoped would be big enough to prevent Greece's debt crisis from spreading.
"Under the three-year aid plan, the EU Commission will make €60 billion (£52 billion) available while countries from the 16-nation eurozone would promise bilateral backing for €440 billion (£381 billion). The IMF would contribute an additional sum of at least half of the EU's total contribution, or €250 billion (£216 billion), Spanish Finance Minister Elena Salgado said."
