Europeans Tried to Block IMF Debt Report on Greece...

Euro zone countries tried in vain to stop the IMF from publishing a gloomy analysis of Greece's debt burden. Sources familiar with the situation said on Friday that the leftist government says the report vindicates its call to voters to reject bailout terms. The document released in Washington on Thursday said Greece's public finances will not be sustainable without substantial debt relief, possibly including write-offs by European partners of loans guaranteed by taxpayers. It also said Greece will need at least 50 billion euros in additional aid over the next three years to keep itself afloat.
