Office workers walk in the business district of Madrid, Tuesday Jan. 15, 2013. Spain has sold an above-target euro 5.8 billion ($7.74 billion) in short-term bills at a sharply reduced interest rate, reflecting easing investor concern over the country's ability to manage its finances without a bailout. Spain's borrowing costs have plunged from unsustainable highs last year after the European Central Bank pledged to help countries by buying up their short-term bonds if they apply for help. Spain says it does not need outside aid for the moment.(AP Photo/Paul White) less
