European leaders have reached agreement at an emergency meeting in Brussels on a new bailout for Greece in an effort to prevent the eurozone debt crisis from spreading. The European Union President Herman van Rompuy said the programme would be financed by the EU, the IMF and the private sector. He insisted that Europe would defend its currency.
"Today, ladies and gentlemen, with all these decisions we have shown that we will not waver in the defence of our monetary union and our common currency. Final remark: when European leaders say that we will do everything what is required to save the eurozone, it is very simple. We mean it."
The package is reported to be worth more than $200bn. Interest rates for loans to Greece are to be reduced and their duration will be extended. Mr van Rompuy said private sector involvement in emergency measures would be restricted to Greece.
Some news just in, the BBC has learnt that a senior journalist at the Sun newspaper, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's media group, has been sacked in connection with phone hacking. It's not clear whether the journalist previously worked for the now defunct News of the World, which is at the heart of the hacking scandal here in Britain.
Syrian security forces are reported to have intensified their operation against anti-government protesters in the country's third biggest city Homs. A Syrian human rights activist told the BBC that government forces have killed at least two people. Owen Bennett-Jones reports from Beirut.
The protesters and the security forces in Homs are locked in a protracted and violent battle of wills. For days now, residents have been saying that they are frightened and stuck in their homes, listening to gunfire outside. On the streets, there are checkpoints and a heavy security presence as the authorities seek to arrest protest organisers. It seems that some of the violence in Homs has been sectarian with the city's Sunni and Alawite communities clashing. Both the government and opposition accuse each other of encouraging sectarian violence.
NATO says it's investigating how its computer network was hacked. A group of international hackers calling themselves Anonymous said they had breached NATO security and downloaded hundreds of confidential documents. The cyber attack comes days after 21 suspected members of Anonymous were arrested in the US, Britain and the Netherlands. Caroline Hawley reports.
According to Anonymous, its hackers have now laid their hands on one gigabyte of restricted data. The documents they posted online don't appear to contain information that will concern NATO too much. But a NATO official condemned any leak of classified documents, saying they could potentially endanger security. A splinter group of Anonymous has previously hacked the website of the CIA and of Britain's Serious Organised Crime Agency. Taunting NATO on Twitter, Anonymous says it has more of what it calls the organisation's "delicious data".
