The loan will run over three to four years and cost as much as 50 basis points, or 0.5 of a percentage point, more than Libor. Russia's central bank declined to comment immediately. Iceland's Financial Supervisory Authority said today that it had taken control of Landsbanki Islands hf, the country's second-largest lender. Kaupthing Bank hf, the largest bank, said the central bank had agreed to lend it 500 million euros.
