Insults, slammed fists: EU virus summit goes into 4th day

BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union leaders are gearing up for a fourth day of fighting over an unprecedented $2.1 trillion budget and coronavirus recovery fund. They are barely recovered from a weekend of walkouts, fists slamming into tables and insults. There finally was a glimmer of hope that the talks to help the continent emerge from the pandemic through an unprecedented economic aid package are not doomed after all. The meeting is one of the longest-running ever in the bloc’s history, and it broke up temporarily and is due to resume on Monday afternoon.
