Demonstrators outside Cyprus's parliament protest plans by the government to sell off state-owned enterprises, in Nicosia February 27, 2014. Cyprus's parliament rejected a privatisation plan on Thursday, throwing into disarray an international bailout programme and the disbursement of a new tranche of aid to the cash-starved island next month. As part of its commitments to pay down debt, Cyprus is expected to privatise three major public utility corporations, raising some 1.4 billion by 2018. Those earmarked for sale include Cyprus Telecoms CyTA, the Electricity Authority and the Cyprus Ports Authority. REUTERS/Andreas Manolis (CYPRUS - Tags: BUSINESS POLITICS CIVIL UNREST) less
