Barclays to cut up to 12,000 jobs
(02-11 18:26)

British bank, Barclays, says it plans to cut between 10,000 and 12,000 jobs this year, including 7,000 in Britain. The cuts came as the bank said it had increased staff bonuses by ten percent last year despite an annual profit fall. Its Chief Executive Antony Jenkins, who has waived his own annual bonus, said that the rises were necessary to maintain the bank's competitiveness. --RTHK
