The headquarters of nationalised Hypo Alpe Adria is pictured behind a traffic sign in Klagenfurt February 12, 2014. Austria scrapped its plan to have healthy commercial lenders back a "bad bank" for toxic assets at Hypo Alpe Adria and will look now at creating its own wind-down vehicle, which would increase state debt, officials said. Resistance from other banks and problems with setting up a bad bank in a way that would keep its debt off state books under European rules scuppered the plan, Finance Minister Michael Spindelegger said after a high-level meeting at the chancellery on Monday.
