Japanese tourists attempt to take out euros from a cashpoint machine in
central Rome January 7, 2002. After coming in at the bottom of the euro
rollout class last week, Italy suffered a fresh cash crunch on Monday as
bank workers went on a 24-hour strike, drying up the flow of the new euros
to bank machines and retailers. REUTERS/Vincenzo Pinto
