Ben Bernanke on protecting US from Eurozone crisis

The chairman of the US Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke has warned that the worsening Eurozone crisis threatens the US economy.

He told a congressional committee in Washington that the US must act to protect its interests.

He said that by strengthening its own economy, the country would be better able to deal with any ''spill over'' from problems in Europe.
