Leaders agree eurozone debt plan in Brussels

Help

European leaders have reached a three-pronged agreement described as vital to solve the region's huge debt crisis.

They said banks holding Greek debt accepted a 50% loss, the eurozone bailout fund will be boosted to about 1tn euros (£880bn; $1.4tn) and banks will have to raise more capital.

Critics have accused policymakers of not doing enough to resolve the issues, contributing further to problems and fuelling uncertainty.
