Evening HeadlinesBloomberg: Euro Region’s Boost to Bailout Fund Falls Short of 1 Trillion-Euro Target. Euro-area finance ministers approved enhancements to their bailout fund while backing off from setting a target for its firepower and seeking a greater role for the International Monetary Fund in fighting the debt crisis.
