The European Union, Germany and leading bankers have all urged the Cypriot parliament to quickly find a way of raising the 5.8bn euros needed to qualify for an international bailout.

The head of one of Cyprus' biggest banks urged MPs to accept a levy on bank deposits.
This was rejected on Tuesday, sparking a fresh eurozone confidence crisis.
