Central Bank of Cyprus transfers money to bank branches

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Private security trucks were loaded up with money at the Central Bank of Cyprus early on Thursday (March 28). The money was going to Cypriot banks in preparation for branches reopening after two weeks. Cypriots are expected to descend in their thousands when the island's battered banks reopen at around 1000 GMT, though there will be tight controls on withdrawals or transfers to prevent depositors from cleaning out their vaults. The Mediterranean island fears a stampede at banks almost two weeks after they were shut by the government as it negotiated a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout package with the European Union to escape financial meltdown.
