European stock markets fall on Greece, possible US rate rise

Frankfurt loses 1.4%, Milan gains 0.18%

(ANSA) - Milan, May 26 - European stock markets dipped towards the end of trading Tuesday amid uncertainty over the financial situation in Greece and fears of a rise in interest rates in the United States. Frankfurt lost 1.4%, followed by London (-0.6%), Madrid (-0.3%) and Paris (0.26%).
    The Milan stock exchange posted a slight rise of 0.18% over Tuesday's opening, while Athens rose 1.3% after two difficult sessions. Cleveland Federal Reserve President Loretta Mester said earlier in May that the "time was getting close" for a rise in interest rates.
