Stock in Germany's biggest lender closed at 11.57 euros ($13), up 6.39 percent on Thursday's close after a flurry of last-minute buying activity following the news the bank had negotiated a much lower fine than expected with the US Department of Justice.

Deutsche Bank shares dropped on news that a number of hedge funds had pulled money out of the German giant owing to concerns over its financial strengthShares in Germany's biggest lender Deutsche Bank plummeted on the Frankfurt stock market on Friday, dragging other European banks and global markets down with it, after reports some customers were pulling money out. The investors were reacting to a $14-billion fine demand from the US Department of Justice (DoJ) and conflicting reports in German media over whether Berlin would come to the troubled bank's aid if necessary, which have sapped the bank's market valuation since Monday. Just after 0800 GMT, shares in the bank had shed 6.35 percent to 10.90 euros ($12.19), while traditional Frankfurt rival Commerzbank -- which itself announced a far-reaching restructuring this week -- was also pulled down, losing 6.37 percent to trade at 5.45 euros.

Health experts have warned Asia is particularly vulnerable to the Zika virus, given that the Aedes aegypti mosquito -- which carries Zika, dengue fever and the chikungunya virus -- thrives in its congested citiesThai health authorities on Friday said microcephaly in two babies was caused by the Zika virus, in what is believed to be Southeast Asia's first confirmed case of a link between the sickness and the birth defect. Tourism is expected to account for 17 percent of Thailand's GDP this year, and authorities will be desperate to prevent visitor numbers from tailing off after Friday's announcement. "Two of the three infants (tested) had microcephaly due to the Zika virus," Wicharn Pawan, a disease control official at the Health Ministry told AFP.
