European markets brace for more euro zone turmoil in 2012

LONDON (AFP) - European shares and the euro will likely face more turmoil in 2012, after a year in which equity markets and the single currency slumped on fears over the euro zone debt crisis and the global economy.

Yields on euro zone sovereign debt meanwhile rocketed in late 2011 as investors demanded top returns for lending money to the bloc's most indebted countries such as Greece and Italy.
