Milan stocks tumbled 3.42 percent in early trading on Thursday, wiping €20 billion off share price value, amid global concerns over a slowing economy.

Shares in many companies were suspended due to the heavy losses, Ansa reported, sparked by dismal economic figures from the US, falling oil prices, a sluggish recovery in Europe and low inflation.

The drop in indices across Europe was led by Greece main stock index, which plummeted 6.3 percent to a 14-month low.
