Draghi sees eurozone growth slowing in the second quarter  

European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi expects economic growth in the eurozone to slow in the second quarter.

"The economic recovery is gradually proceeding," says Draghi, adding that growth continues to be supported by domestic demand but is being dampened by subdued demand in major emerging markets.

He says that growth in the three months to the June could be slower compared with the first quarter but says it "will still be a good figure."
