Demonstrators protest against austerity measures announced by the Spanish government in the centre of Madrid, Spain, on Thursday July 19, 2012. Concerns over Spain's attempts to restore market confidence in its economy resurfaced Thursday after a bond auction went poorly and its borrowing costs edged higher — even as the country's Parliament passed the latest round of harsh austerity measures designed to cut its bloated deficit.
