The Cypriot government has warned that banking curbs to prevent money from leaving the country will apply for longer than expected, in a blow to the island’s attempts to revive its paralysed economy.

The country’s foreign minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, said the regime, including a limit on cash withdrawals at €300 (£253) per day, would last for “about a month” – just 24 hours after the population was told they would only be in place for a week.
