Euro leaders begin crunch talks
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have hammered out a common position on the euro debt crisis.
A statement by the French president's office said agreement had been reached after seven hours of talks in Berlin.
It comes ahead of a crunch meeting of eurozone leaders to resolve the Greek debt crisis and prevent further contagion to other eurozone economies.
