Even the best-protected senior bondholders investing in the bank would see their holdings "wiped out", Dijsselbloem told journalists. Loans to the government in Nicosia once the parliament there approves the deal in April, will be for 10 billion ($A12.49 billion).

I read somewhere this past weekend that up to 70% of the Cypriot workforce is dependent on the banking industry for their employment.
