The Associated Press what is said is a witness to the alleged massacre of Al-Qubair. Leith Al-Hamwy said troops shelled the area for five hours Wednesday before governments aligned militias known as Shabiha entered the zone ", piracy and kill everyone they could find it. "

He told AP by phone that he survived by hiding in an olive grove about 800 meters from the farm that the killings took place. But he said that his mother and six brothers, aged 10 years, the twins did not. He said:

When he came out of his hiding place and went into the house, I saw bodies everywhere. Entire families slaughtered with sticks and sharp knives.

Al-Hamwy said the gunmen left the family home on fire and his family were burned. About 80 people died in total, he said, many of them children, and 18 homes were destroyed by bombing or burned.

Syria: While attention has focused on the-Qubair, activists reported shelling by the Syrian army in other areas. A video purporting to show a helicopter shooting Talbiseh, Homs province, today.

This video aims to show families fleeing the bombing Talbiseh.

Homs ancient city

Deir Jamal, Aleppo

journalists also seem to have been prevented from traveling al-Qubair. In a closed Facebook page for journalists covering conflicts, Gert Van Langendonck, who writes for the Christian Science Monitor and the Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad, he said, as UN observers, was the failure to achieve the site of the alleged massacre. He wrote:

We have also been converted into Hama, "for our own safety." The history of government is 13 PPL FSA but not killed "terrorists" and Al-Jazeera exaggerate "the story

On the same page of Facebook, Sharron Ward, an independent filmmaker and video journalist, wrote:

Sky News' Tim Marshall @ skytwitius was arrested while trying to enter al-Qubair, Hama, arrested by the Syrian army "for their own safety," but many others cars were allowed on the road .. .

Syria: Syrian ambassador to India, Riad Abbas, has accused the opposition of being responsible for the alleged massacre of Al-Qubair to attract international attention. He is quoted as saying by the website hard news:

the time of slaughter is important. Today, a large conference is scheduled in Turkey. The opposition wants international attention. Even the Hula massacre coincided with the visit of the envoy of Kofi Annan. Why butcher a regime against its own people? ...

Much of the violence that occurs in areas controlled by the opposition. People were massacred. It is the army that would make a horrible act. In addition, after the cease-fire, a large part of the heavy military presence in Hama had to be removed. The opposition took advantage of the situation ...

We suspect this type of violence before every important event in Syria. This is a tactic of the opposition forces to discredit the Syrian government. Most people who have died in the government favored Hula Syrian citizens. A newly elected congressman in Homs was threatened, ask Parliament to withdraw. When he refused, his entire family was killed by militants. This is for people who die of government. Half of those killed to date are members of the armed insurrection.

Although the national unity government led by the Islamist party Ennahda is aware of these social and economic problems, which has been unable to respond quickly enough and can calm the impatience of workers and unemployed youth who expect to reap the benefits of their participation in the struggles of the past.

To avoid destabilizing social conflict, the government must respond to the increasing violence caused by the deteriorating economic conditions, get a handle on the vast informal economy, including smuggling, overcome administrative barriers socio-economic improvements. encourage democratization and regional and local


Here is a summary of recent developments:


UN observers were unable to reach al-Qubair where activists say at least 78 people were killed yesterday. General Robert Mood, head of the observer mission, said: "They are detained in Syrian army checkpoints and in some cases, transformed some of our patrols arrested civilians in the region.".

Eurozone crisis live: Ireland votes on EU fiscal treaty

. The low voter turnout at the beginning

. Yes and No campaigns to present its case

. Mario Draghi supports banking syndicate, the explosions of the leaders . Greek

fall in retail sales drop 16.2%

. Today, the agenda


You may remember the row that erupted after Christine Lagarde, the IMF, told the Guardian that the Greek people stop to escape paying taxes.

Well, Nick Malkoutzis, deputy director of the English-language daily newspaper Kathimerini Greece, wrote this article on the subject, in part, based on the opinions of its readers.

Malkoutzis highlighted several important points, including:

. Yes, Greece has a large shadow economy, but do many other countries in Europe and the developing world. The country is not the only sinner.

. The Greeks may be based on the ineptitude of government bureaucracy just to avoid taxes, but in other countries, large corporations and wealthy individuals simply use the tax loopholes for avoid paying taxes in income.

Malkoutzis also suggests that officials and critics may want to deal with the scale of the suffering of the population in Greece (at this point, Ms. Lagarde said she had more sympathy for children in Africa than in Athens). He concludes:

But again, the stories of workers losing their jobs every day, thousands who have no health benefits or sick people not to buy their drugs and others who are pushed so far that life is not what you want to listen to before bed. These are the kinds of stories that might keep you awake all night.

The entire work is here.

2:24 p.m.:. The number of U.S. workers filing for unemployment benefits rose last week, a sign that the recovery in the labor market continues to decline. Initial claims of unemployment increased from 10,000 to 383,000 seasonally adjusted in the week ending May 26, the Labor Department said Thursday.

With all the talk of austerity spending U.S. v Europe is interesting to see what the impact of the short United States is having an impact on GDP.

The data also showed an unexpected drop in U.S. corporate earnings, which fell 4.1% during the quarter. This is the biggest drop since the last three months of 2008, when the panic following the collapse of Lehman Brothers has sent corporate profits under more than one quarter.

economics professor Nouriel Roubini fears that this is the beginning of a trend, as economic problems feed on the bottom line of businesses:

Behold Mount Everest, reduced to adventure tourism | Jonathan Jones

Everest is not docile, but this line of climbers was seduced by a fantasy that everything should be easier and faster

This is a picture of everything that went wrong in the relationship of humanity with nature. Amid the vast rock of Mount Everest, a long line of people standing in the snow in traffic pedestrian strange. Four people were recently killed in a single day on Everest that day of 150 climbers climbed. It has been argued that the congestion of man has contributed to the tragedy, which seems very likely that consideration of this image. But, as well as help to explain the death, is a picture of how deeply we are failing to have any sort of decent respect for our world: how our love affair with nature has become sick and twisted

Brits are looking back at 60 years of history. The popularity of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen certainly has less to do with respect for the majesty of a recognition that the reign of Elizabeth II spans 60 years of history to think of ourselves of its creation, get a view over a period of radical change. It turns out that one of the most memorable events in the early reign of Queen was the "conquest" of Everest with a statement of the Commonwealth. May 29, 1953 Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first human beings ever known have remained atop the highest mountain in the world.

is instructive to compare today's photograph of a line of ants, as the climbers with the image of Hillary Tenzing Norgay on the summit of Everest. In the photograph from 1953 of a man is alone in the snowy summit, which seemed almost on the verge of empty space as a deep blue, dark as thick around dressed. This image of the solitary explorer of the realms of high mountains have cold feet in the romanticism of the early 19: Tenzing Norgay was the only one in the mountains, as Caspar David Friedrich Wanderer above the Sea of ??Fog in the painting of 1818 which expresses perfectly the romantic affinity for heights far.

Climbing as a sport

came the Romantic movement. Helvellyn by Sir Walter Scott poem talks about his solo ascent of the peak Laklelands and meditate on the death of a hiker there, whose body lay in his only companion, a faithful dog: these images from the world of people each days - and the lonely death - are part of the myth of the mountain is still very much alive in the stories Touching the Void

, of course, an illusion. Everest is not sweet. The idea is controllable again exposed as a parasitic fantastic. Modern communications are not recorded when they are too high for helicopters. The tail of the multitudes beyond death and dying. This surreal image is sad, not only about Everest, but it captures the illusions that accelerate the world toward environmental catastrophe.

Romney accused Obama of threatening global stability by not investing enough in the war:

While the military underinvestment is a longstanding problem of NATO, the lack of U.S. leadership on this issue is alarming again. Instead of working to strengthen NATO, the Obama administration has taken steps that undermine the alliance.

Last year, President Obama signed into law a budget plan that threatens to charge the U.S. militarywith about U.S. $ 1 billion in cuts over the next 10 years. ... General Martin Dempsey, head of the Joint Chiefs of the United States, said that this reduction simply means "no longer a world power."

He adds: "Coming from different parts of the world, their faces show their vulnerability, despite the great differences in their lives and circumstances."

One of the most striking exhibits show Margaret standing knee deep in water Clegg in the living room of his home in Toll Bar, Doncaster, which was flooded when the Don River exceeded its banks in June 2007 Following recording of a shower.

It is not clear to what extent, if any, climate change has contributed to the occurrence or intensity of flooding in summer 2007 in England and Northern Ireland, which cost the UK economy more than $ 3 billion. A single extreme weather event can not be definitively attributed to climate change, whose influence can be detected and measured by analyzing statistical trends looking back over several decades. This means that it can not be assured for many years on how flood risk is affected.

know the basic physics of a warmer atmosphere can be more humid and contains more water vapor, in theory, increase by 7% for each additional degree Celsius. As a result of climate change should increase the intensity of the water cycle in many parts of the world, causing droughts, floods and much more.

An analysis of climate trends in the UK between 1961 and 2006, during which the average temperature has risen by one degree Celsius, said that while winters have become significantly wetter, the number and severity of heavy precipitation events has increased. Meanwhile, the summers have become drier and heavy summer rains have fallen throughout the UK, except in the north of England, where some of the 2007 floods came, and Scotland to the north.

Climate change is expected to increase the risk of flooding in many parts of the UK. Projections published by the Department of Environmental Affairs, Food and Rural (Defra) in 2009, suggested that as part of an "emissions scenario means" winter precipitation in general should be higher in the 2080s, while that summer rainfall should generally be lower, especially in the south.

The UK climate change

risk assessment, published by Defra earlier this year, found that these trends mean annual damage potential of coastal and river flooding in England and Wales Wales could increase by around £ 1.2 billion today to as much as 12 billion pounds in the worst case for the next 80 years.

Perhaps even more disturbing is the abandonment of the risk of flash floods caused by heavy rains are often very localized areas may be flooded with poor drainage, especially in cities. Of the six million properties in the UK are currently at risk of flooding, four million are at risk from surface water flooding.

However, when the risk assessment of climate change, in which the government bases its national adaptation plan was published earlier this year, scientists have noticed that it was flawed because " she had neglected the possible future changes in flash floods and other major threats.

The evaluation stated: "Although the number of properties at risk of flooding surface water is similar to the amount at risk of flooding and tidal river, the appropriate information for analysis were not available at the time of writing. "

'What will you feel when you have no children left to wave goodbye to?'

children are about to pass their final exams and leave the nest. Nicci Gerrard remembers the tears when the time has come - and the possibility of transforming a time of loss in a new sense of liberation

about a year ago, a few months before leaving in the sixth college, my youngest daughter asked cheerfully, "How do you feel when you have no one to say goodbye in the morning?" And as if someone had pressed a button, I began to breathe a sea of ??tears.

It was like a sea of ??pain, I did not know how I could stop. I did not even know why I was crying with such abandon, because she was going, because the other three are gone, because I missed because I lost the person I was when all were young because his childhood was over and was happy, because I could not get those days when I knew I could guarantee their safety and protect everyone, because I was afraid it would be without them ...

And now throughout the country, teens are about to bring their A-levels and thus begins a farewell, and in all countries of parents like me, are appalled by an event that must always have known to come. We do not want to stay, it is terribly painful to let go

Sometimes I think I'm like a scaffolding erected around a building, and now the building is gone and no remains of the scaffolding. Although I have always worked since September 1987, when my son was born, how my life was dictated by my children, their needs and moods (there is a saying that is like a curse, "we are also pleased that your happy child ").

sleepless nights, early mornings, bottles, bibs, diapers, toilet training, beaten small body on her bed, night terrors, laundry, hot cars, the Cross and overcrowded pureed meal, buggies, bath time, first day of kindergarten, scraped knees, temper tantrums, a warm hand in yours, nits, rubella and cold in a loop, sand castles, concerts school and parent meetings, child care and child care to work steadily declining for calling in sick, reading for bedtime, telling them in the supermarket, homework help, boxes Lunch, reports, tests, issues of friendship, missing socks, lost fitness, loss of course, he lost everything, knocking on doors, rooms that beat with the disaster, later in the night calls asking you to collect, beer cans into bottles of vodka grass on the lawn, first novels, first holiday away from you, the first festivals, grief first, the progressive realization of the secrets, the meaning gradual that it can not do everything but juggle called fatherhood and do not realize when it's over what is perhaps also called happiness.

And if things go your way, if you're lucky, they leave. I was lucky and I went - and has developed a machine to process the daily rotation of your needs, I look in vain in his absence

I was quite surprised by the strength

my fault, but also by how many of my friends feel exactly the same thing, and how is physical. Failure hurts.

spoke of empty rooms in the room - with a disorder who complained on the day and for years were full of unpleasant tasks and now have some kind of space on them. I want for now. I can read books, take walks, visit friends, the cultivation of chili, bad paint, think about learning a language - but my mind did not understand my new freedom but


When a child calls his mother, who is always there. The heart needs time to catch the change feels like a cinematic jump cuts. You are young and beginning and suddenly, you're middle aged. A wrinkled, creased, looks into the face of the mirror surprised indignation swollen

The problem is wrong, is staying behind in a life that suddenly feels the wrong way. The terrible story of the woman Georgie Fame, Nicolette Powell, who in 1993 jumped to his death from the Clifton Suspension Bridge, after their children left, is an extreme example of how many parents, especially mothers, transition can feel like a bereavement, redundancy, a sudden loss of eyesight and value.

How to convert this loss into the adventure and liberation? I know a couple who built a house together when their last child left, those who have gone on long trips, jobs have changed, made new passions and new skills. It feels important to be irresponsible, selfish and young again - open to change For my part, I learned to throw pots on a wheel and last year I trained to become a humanist celebrant. Now I can perform funerals, ritualized farewell, trying to help people say goodbye to my loved ones. However, despite all my efforts are still often wake me up at night with a feeling of fear the beating heart. At low tide, bad things are in the sand.

, which tells the story of a young woman disappears and the impact it has on your family and friends . One source of emotional novel (with my general melancholy soggy and anxiety as the last child was ready to leave) was the trial of Rosemary West, which I covered for this newspaper.

As part of the gothic horror of what the partner feels dark stories of many of its victims: young women with a life in ruins that have not been detected and had barely been out of view, long before disappeared in 25 Cromwell Street. I felt that I was blind to all people living among us like ghosts, and the anguish of those looking for them to wait.

Bayern Munich shaken to the core by Borussia Dortmund humiliation | Raphael Honigstein

Does the 5-2 defeat of Bayern in the German Cup final affect their chances of success in the Champions League, or was it just a trick?

5-2. Five-two. Five-two. No matter how many times these two numbers resounded in the minds of millions of people, simply makes no sense. After two hard fought wins 1-0 to champions Borussia Dortmund, everybody was expecting another close game - and especially a reaction from Bayern Munich. But rather than assert their claim to the throne, Bayern were humiliated in front of 75,000 spectators at Olympic Stadium in Berlin. For the Reds, the greatest defeat in the final each time. For black and yellow, the first double in his 103-year history. On both sides, almost too much to bear.

"It's like something from another planet," said goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller of Borussia, who was nursing a painful rib injury after his arrival with Mario Gomez and could barely hold the cup after the beep end. "One ... two," he stammered hoarse Dortmund Jürgen Klopp. "This is the most amazing thing that ever happened to me." It was "speechless", the journalists said 44 years. "The results speak for themselves."

But it was not, at least not in a familiar language. Both figures and talking loudly in the ears of fans of Bayern embarrassed, but had no idea what they meant.

As usual with severe trauma, a defense mechanism involved, the followers of Bavaria tried to convince her that what does not look real could not be real, or at least, 't was not the whole story. Is a ploy developed perhaps? Jupp Heynckes was simply repeating the old trick famous East German coach Sepp Herberger of World Cup 1954? has played a weakened side against Hungary in the group stage and lost 3-8, only for a full strength team to beat the same opponents 3-2 in the final. Herberger had attracted the Magyars as imaginary in a false sense of security, the story is not-totally-going as possible.

In theory, a similar theory appear in greater credibility if Bayern get back to beat Chelsea in the final of the Champions League in Munich on Saturday. However, some felt it might be better if it is not in their "last home" at all. "This is a very important game in terms of confidence," said Heynckes before. "It's not easy to get this out of our heads, but we need," said Bastian Schweinsteiger fired one after.

However, there was good news and bad news from the perspective of Bayern. The good: Luiz Gustavo was suspended against Chelsea. Brazilian midfielder has been frozen brain double to give the ball twice and let Shinji Kagawa to mark the first game within 159 seconds. In the stands, Sir Alex Ferguson and Mike Phelan watched with great enthusiasm. Their declared goal of transfer, said he knew nothing about his future, and reports that the Japanese midfielder had taken a flight to Manchester that night was inaccurate. The truth is that Ferguson could have analyzed a number of exciting players of Dortmund, that everything would improve his side immediately. The center back Neven Subotic and Mats Hummels were still colossal, as the right side Polish Lukasz Piszczek, who has become a destination in Madrid.

clearly leads to the bad news: Jerome Boateng, will not be suspended against Chelsea. The former Manchester City defense had one of those games where it seems half awake, as I just ran on the track after a 16-hour flight in economy. Four minutes before the break, that Kuba Blaszczykowski needlessly demolished, to be nowhere in the corner of the box. As challenges go brainless, was there with John Terry's knee in his back Brave Alexis Sanchez.

Hummels, former Bayern man
who had fought tooth and nail to thwart their attempts to bring back

Säbener Strasser , sent to the penalty past Manuel Neuer . In an afternoon better, the goalkeeper of Bayern would have saved the shot. In less horrible, devastating the night, I would not have mounted fifth goal of Dortmund by dropping a ball tame.

"They took a chance and scored three goals," Heynckes complains with some justification. "Our defensive behavior has been catastrophic. If we're focused from the beginning, you do not deserve to win. Only have ourselves to blame. "

The euro remained surprisingly strong during most of 2012 before the depreciation of the Greek crisis intensified. Jane Foley, currency expert Rabobank, said it could also strengthen later this year:

not expect the euro to remain in a permanent downward track. If Greece decides to adhere to the terms of their rescue, the euro is likely to regain some ground. If politicians fail to meet euro through an exit Greek, the euro also recovered in time.

Even in the unlikely event that politicians can not avoid a collapse of the European Monetary Union and the euro becomes the currency of Germany and the nucleus, the euro has also pushed sharply higher.

Update on Athens correspondent Helena Smith in our

Greek media reported that politicians in PASOK, New Democracy and the Democratic Left - smallest of the three parties agreed on the need to form a government order to keep Greece in the area Euro considering the possibility of a short-lived coalition to lead the country in the coming months.

Helena follows:

Under the latter scenario, a government that was formed for the purpose of operational issues for the next two or three months. At that time, to address the "urgent business" to ensure that Greece has continued to receive rescue loans from creditors. As noted earlier, Athens is due to receive a cap of ? 30000000000 liquidity in June However, the quid pro status is that a debtor country is also announcing ? 11.5 billion of additional cuts to reign in public finances.

should be remembered that the Democratic Left has increasingly demanded that Greece "decouple" itself controversial circumstances he signed his last agreement loan with ? 130 000 000 000 international creditors. How that happens remains to be seen.

Helen added that the comments of Wolfgang Schäuble, this morning (see 11:03) that Greece needs help "to his feet again raised hopes of a change in attitude from Berlin.

governmentt As a coalition, there were similar rumors Thursday night, when the leader of PASOK, Evangelos Venizelos called for a unity government. Then there was some support from the Democratic Left, but hopes of an agreement has not yet.

PASOK, New Democracy and the Democratic Left have enough seats for a slim majority in parliament in Athens. But, like many people voted for parties that reject the terms of the financing package of Greece, for example, a coalition could be very unpopular.


Helene Smith took over the statement this morning, Syriza, in which Chief Alexis Tsipras said he would be willing to participate in further discussions between the parties, provided that the Golden Dawn were excluded (as mentioned in 10:22). Tsipras also attacked the "debates" that selective he said took place in Athens these days.

Elena wrote:


Syriza, speaking of Tsipras "will" to participate in talks in the presence of all party leaders, with the exception of the neo fascist Chrysi Avgi - also demanded that the minutes Sunday meeting between the leaders of major parties in the country and President Papoulias, to be "released immediately to the Greek people can be informed and the media stopped the rumor mill about the positions and intentions of the parties". "The Presidency is clear obligation" to release the minutes, he said.


The European Commission has followed Finland draw a warning shot in Athens today, warning that Greece can not not remain in the euro area, if nt abide by the terms of their agreement to help you.

European Commission spokeswoman Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, during a press conference today in Brussels that:


We will continue in the euro and the hope that Greece will continue in the euro area ... but it must respect its commitments.

Another sign that European leaders are "inevitable" with Greece, or an attempt to pressure the Greek leaders to repair somehow an agreement?

11:48:. eurozone The crisis led to the escalation of another script in government bonds shelters "

This has resulted in lower yields on sovereign bonds of Sweden, the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, and Luxumberg to record levels.

For Britain, this means that the 10-year gilt is trading at a record yield of only 1.87% (against 6.2% in Spain).

It's amazing what a financial crisis and ? 325bn of quantitative easing by the Bank of England can achieve ....


While tense negotiations to form a government in Greece continue, the outgoing prime minister, Lucas Papademos, weighed with a serious warning , said Hélène Smith.

Papademos has been shown, a former vice president of the European Central Bank has warned the country's president, Karolos Papaoulias if political uncertainty continues much closer to the empty coffers of Greece may dry out completely - and sooner than we thought.

technocrat Prime Minister, whose government has officially no longer exercised out power, made the warning in a letter to the head of state on Sunday.

Described as an SOS by the Greek media, the letter raised the alarm, saying that Athens face the danger of default as soon as the "early June", as it will be unable to meet with its foreign debt.

Papademos, who won a second ? 130 000 000 000 EU and IMF rescue for Greece, after six months of tortuous negotiations, warned that the fund could be depleted faster than expected because that foreign lenders had kept vital ? 1 billion euros in aid of 5.2 billion times that arrived in Athens last week.

The political impasse in recent weeks had, he said, greatly reduces the ability of prosecutors to Greece to collect the mechanisms to work effectively with the result that journals of State had also fallen. Revenues decreased from an average of ? 40 million per day to less than ? 25 million.

Before the political upheaval, Greece had been waiting for delivery "cap" cash of ? 30 billion, which had planned to recapitalize the banks (to the tune of ? 25 billion), against to debt payments and to cover the public sector pay and pensions.

The troika of creditors in the EU, the IMF and the ECB, with increasing force, however, clarified that there will be no more help before Athens receives a government who can demonstrate a commitment to austerity and structural reforms considered vital to regain competitiveness in a country whose economy to a fifth consecutive year of recession, is virtually to its knees. Once the government is formed, the troika officials will return to the Greek capital for financial review progress.

Papademos said political uncertainty, was not only impede progress, but to put enormous pressure on the banking system of Greece, and thus the nation funds, the real economy. Six weeks of instability after the elections on June 17 - the most likely date - much worse, macro-economist, wrote in the note.

outgoing Finance Minister Philippos Sachinidis (though invested with real power) should respond to the growing concern about the headless Greece, when he attends the meeting of the Ecofin in Brussels the day today. Unlike Belgium, who managed to survive without a government for a record 541 days, there is little hope that Athens will continue to drift, even for a fraction of that time without the collapse of government dysfunctional first.


new data of opinion polls was published in Athens

was found that 66.1% of people want a coalition government was formed, while 32.4% want new elections.

A slight majority of respondents (53.6%) said they believed that Greece should continue with his current economic plan. And on the question of the future of Greece in the euro area, 81.5% said they want the country remains the single currency.

(which is by Linda Yueh, Bloomberg)


Wolfgang Schäuble , the finance minister of Germany, He finger on one of the causes of the situation in Greece, this morning, telling reporters in Berlin that Greece decided to devalue if it had its own currency.

However, it is clear that Greece can not devalue without leaving the euro - and Schäuble was the claim that, despite the crisis, Greece is better to stay put. He added that includes Greece is one:

desperately difficult.


Schäuble, also told reporters that "We have to Greece back on its feet," perhaps a sign that Germany could give some ground on the pace of tax reform?

Finnish European Affairs Alexander Stubb

, also referred to the Greek crisis, warning that the country can not remain in the euro area If we reject the rescue agreement (as required by some parties that won the elections on May 6). Stubb said:

I think it's an impossible equation, and I think in this sense is a iresponsible statement.


Curiously rules for the stock today is that it is


days after the Greek electorate has a resounding rejection of the terms of bailout of the country. European equities fell Monday (London was closed for a holiday), but was not then a resumption of optimism that a unity government could be dug out of order.

as David Jones, chief market strategist at IG Index, said:

makes little difference this weekend. Two days back and forth negotiations in Athens produced much heat but little light, and the world woke up Monday morning for another day without Greek government. New elections in June now seems a certainty, and the possibility of a Greek of the euro area is openly discussed in the corridors of power.

European markets remain in the red, with the index of Athens, a dip of 22 years under (up 4.15% to 586) this morning.

Italy, Spain, saw its borrowing costs rise due to the sovereign debt auction this morning
the Italian Treasury has agreed to pay a yield of 3.91% in exchange for finding buyers for three-year bonds, which is the highest since January (according to Reuters data). On the positive side, Italy had to sell the maximum of ? 5.25bn was looking for.

Alan McQuaid

aa stockbrokers Bloxham

, Dublin, warned that " the things will get worse instead of better "for Italy in the bond markets, at least in the short term. This would add to pressure on Mario Monti, PM technocratic Italy, at a time when opposition to economic reforms is increasing.

agreed, saying:

These are critical times for Italy. The list of concerns is growing, and includes the ability of the economy to withstand greater austerity, shortages of foreign buyers at the auctions, the political environment increasingly uncertain and, especially, the intensification of the crisis in Greece. Italy remains extremely vulnerable to a sharp deterioration in confidence, particularly because of its substantial financing needs in the second half of this year.
