Cyprus has agreed with EU/IMF  lenders a 20-percent levy on deposits over 100,000 euros  ($130,000) at leading lender Bank of Cyprus and a  4-percent levy on deposits of the same amount at other lenders,  a senior Cypriot official said on Saturday.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a  Cypriot plan to tap nationalised pension funds, opposed by  Germany, would not be part of a plan to raise billions of euros  in return for a bailout from the European Union
