Milan, August 29 - Markets advanced across Europe

expanded more than expected by analysts and as jobless claims in
the world's largest economy beat forecasts.

since 2011, according to data released on Thursday by national
statistics office Istat. It scored 98.3, a level last seen in
August 2011, and compares to 97.4 points in July.

German benchmark equivalent, as investor concern about the
ongoing debt crisis was pared by the possibility of concrete
action by the region's political leaders in conjunction with the
European Central Bank.

eurozone crisis, closed at 251 points with 10-year yields at
