[BRUSSELS] Unemployment in the Eurozone fell in June to the lowest level since February 2009 as Europe's economic recovery continued to strengthen, official EU figures showed on Monday.

The jobless rate in the 19-nation single currency area dropped to 9.1 per cent compared to a revised 9.2 per cent in May, the Eurostat statistics agency said in a statement.

The figure was slightly below the estimate of 9.2 per cent unemployment for June predicted by analysts surveyed for data company Factset.
