Euro debt summit

EUROZONE finance ministers were gathering today in Brussels to launch a series of critical meetings this weekend.

Today's meeting comes amid deepening divisions between France and Germany over how best to expand Europe's bailout fund to prevent the Greek debt crisis from spilling over into Italy and Spain.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny (above) said the priority for the two upcoming summits on Sunday and Wednesday would be to get a conclusive set of decisions to solve the Euro crisis.
