URGENT ¥¥¥ 'Superhuman effort' to reopen Cyprus banks: central bank

Cypriot authorities are making a "superhuman effort" to reopen banks after a nearly two-week closure imposed during negotiations for a eurozone bailout, the central bank chief said on Tuesday.

"A superhuman effort is being made for the banks to open on Thursday," Panicos Demetriades told a press conference at the central bank, where hundreds of angry bank workers protested earlier.
