Eurozone fears lift US dollar

The Europe currency reaches eight-months low against the American dollar.

    European stock markets fell for the third day in a row on Friday.

    The drop came amid increasing fears that some of the European Union's weaker economies including Greece, Spain, and Portugal might default on their debts.

    The concerns have also caused the euro to fall to its lowest point against the US dollar in more than eight months.
