From the Wall Street Journal:

Six financial institutions were fined €1.71 billion ($2.32 billion) by European Union regulators Wednesday for colluding in an attempt to manipulate key benchmark interest rates, the EU’s largest-ever penalty in a cartel case.

The settlements involved penalties against some of the world’s biggest banks, including Deutsche Bank, Société Générale, Royal Bank of Scotland Group, RBS, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup.

A rough total €6 billion the total penalties levied by regulators against financial institutions in connection with probes into manipulation of the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, and other widely used financial benchmarks.
