Investor pressure on Portugal eases, govn't talks

People shout slogans during a protest by the Portuguese Communist party, PCP, demanding the dissolving of the Portuguese parliament and early election, in Lisbon, Wednesday, July 3, 2013. Portugal is locked into a program of tough budget cuts demanded by its fellow euro countries, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund in return for a euro 78 billion (USD102 billion) bailout two years ago. If Portugal doesn't abide by the austerity program, its bailout creditors could halt the disbursement of funds, potentially leaving it unable to pay what it owes. (AP Photo/Francisco Seco)
