The euro sculpture stands in front of the European Central Bank, ECB, in Frankfurt, Germany, Tuesday, June 11, 2013. A key ECB program that has been credited with calming the 3 1/2 year-old euro debt crisis faced a legal challenge Tuesday in Germany's highest court. The Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe is considering arguments against the ECB's offer to buy government bonds and lower borrowing costs for indebted countries. Opponents of the bond-buying program say the program oversteps the ECB's mandate, which forbids it from financing governments. (AP Photo/Michael Probst)
