Cyprus' finance minister says the budget deficit next year is forecast to beat the target outlined in the terms of the country's bailout. Cyprus was granted in March a 10 billion-euro ($13.68 billion) loan to avoid bankruptcy, but forced uninsured savers in the country's two biggest banks to take major losses on their savings. Authorities also imposed controls on the flow of capital to prevent a bank run. (AP Photo/Petros Karadjias)
