Cypriot bank branches in Greece to reopen on Wednesday

The branches of three Cypriot banks in Greece will reopen on Wednesday after Greece's Piraeus Bank agreed to take them over, a finance ministry official said on Tuesday.

Piraeus later confirmed the Cypriot banks, which have been closed since March 19, would open on Wednesday.
