European markets open higher
(07-22 15:33)

Europe's main stock markets advanced in opening deals on Tuesday, rebounding slightly from recent losses, with London's benchmark FTSE 100 index up 0.31 percent at 6,749.09 points.
In Frankfurt, the DAX 30 added 0.73 percent to 9,682.21 points and the CAC 40 in Paris gained 0.44 percent to 4,323.71 compared with Monday's close.
European equities had fallen for a third day on Monday, weighed down by concerns the US and Europe could toughen their sanctions against Russia, and by escalating violence in Gaza.
Markets have been worried in recent days by escalating tensions between the West and Russia after the downing of a Malaysian airliner last week, and by Israel's ground offensive in Gaza. --AFP
