Berlin - The German Parliament on Thursday approved with a broad majority the €10bn bailout for Cyprus. 487 MPs voted in favour, 102 against and 13 abstained. The Cypriot parliament also needs to approve it later this month. The Cypriot government has a majority of just two votes over the anti-bailout opposition.
