Cyprus Leaders Head To Brussels For Talks

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and party leaders will travel to Brussels today for talks with the EU on measures aimed at staving off bankruptcy for the island.

The delegation will depart at lunchtime and return to Cyprus late on Saturday or on Sunday, the official CNA news agency has reported.

The trip comes a day ahead of a deadline to adopt measures aimed at raising 5.8bn euros (£4.9bn) in order to secure a 10bn euro bailout.
