Final Details Expected on Eurozone Debt Relief Plan

Bits and pieces of a coordinated debt relief plan have started to become public with more detail expected as part of a European Central Bank press conference scheduled for later today. According to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, the plans include measures to “recapitalize banks and get rid of toxic assets they may have”.
