Another Belgian bank gets bailed out

So now European banks really start to play catch up on the US banks

Dexia secures survival with €6.4bn rescue

"Dexia today became the second Belgian bank to be bailed out by authorities after Belgium, France and Luxembourg pledged to inject €6.4 billion (£5.1 billion) to keep the local government lender afloat.

A day after the partial nationalisation of Fortis, the Dutch-Belgian bank, Brussels announced a similar plan for Dexia. The move came as panic spread across Europe to Germany and France, prompting President Sarkozy to summon French bankers to an emergency meeting today. "
