Spread creeps up to 250

Milan, August 21 - The spread between 10-year Italian bonds and the benchmark German bund crept back up to 250 points in early trading Wednesday.

The spread had been steadily narrowing until the start of the week, marked by significant losses in the Italian banking sector.
