Unemployment 'disparity' in Europe


Unemployment in the eurozone has reached another record high, according to official figures.

The seasonal-adjusted rate for April was 12.2%, up from 12.1% the month before.

An extra 95,000 people were out of work in the 17 countries that use the euro, bringing the total to 19.38 million.

The BBC's Jamie Robertson said that there was "disparity across Europe", with Germany doing well but high unemployment in Spain and an "appalling situation" in Greece.
