China said industrial production rose 9.3 percent in April from a year ago, below analysts' expectations. India's industrial output fell 3.5 percent in March.
The euro fell to $1.2925 in late trading Friday from $1.2951 late Thursday.

In Greece, leaders still have not been able to form a coalition government after voters punished politicians who were for austerity measures.
