``Euro-area finance ministers shielded Greek bank depositors from any losses resulting from the restructuring of the nation's financial system, as part of Friday's deal on an 86 billion-euro ($96 billion) bailout. Senior bank bondholders will be in the crosshairs if Greek lenders tap into any of the financial stability funds set aside in the new bailout. Euro-area finance ministers agreed to a deal that would next week place 10 billion euros in Greece's bank recapitalization fund, with another 15 billion euros available if needed.''
