LONDON (AFP) - Barclays plans to cut between 10,000 and 12,000 jobs worldwide this year, its chief executive Antony Jenkins said on Tuesday after the scandal-hit British bank announced a rise in bonuses.

Mr Jenkins told a conference call with media that about 7,000 jobs would go in Britain. Barclays, which on Tuesday announced also a return to net profit in 2013, employs about 139,000 people around the world.
