Spain Financial Crisis

  File - In this Feb. 3, 2012 file photo, Spain's Economy Minister Luis de Guindos pauses during a news conference at the Moncloa Palace in Madrid. Spain's borrowing costs soared Wednesday May 30, 2012 to reach their highest level since the country joined the euro, close to levels where other debt-stricken countries such as Greece and Ireland have asked for an international bailout. Concerns over Spain's nationalized lender Bankia, and the government's ability to come up with a euros19 billion rescue package for the bank, have sparked the latest round of investor fears over the country. De Guindos defended the government as transparent on what it plans to do with the banking sector, heavily laden with billions of euros in toxic assets after the implosion of a real estate bubble.
