Leaders of two countries to meet in Paris as Italian PM seeks to rebuild confidence in country's public finances.

    As the eurozone prepares to release its latest economic data, including unemployment figures, the worried leaders of France and Italy are to meet in Paris to discuss the continent's growing debt crisis.
