(Reuters) – The euro extended declines
against the dollar and yen and hit session lows in early trade
in Monday on worries the European Central Bank may disappoint
investors hoping for more actions to contain the debt crisis.

The euro fell as low as $1.2223 on Reuters data and
was last at $1.2235, down 0.7 percent on the day.

Against the yen, the euro slid to 95.50 yen and
was last 1.1 percent lower at 95.62.
