URGENT ¥¥¥ Barclays bank takes extra £1.0-bn charge for mis-selling

British bank Barclays said Tuesday that it will set aside another £1.0 billion ($1.6 billion, 1.2 billion euros) to cover redress for the mis-selling of both credit insurance and interest rate hedging products.

Barclays, rocked last year by the Libor scandal, said in a statement that it will set aside another £400 million to cover the mis-selling of interest rate swap products, and another £600 million to cover the mis-selling of payment protection insurance.
