Finance officials express hopes for growth

WASHINGTON (AP) - The world's top finance officials say the global economy is recovering, and they're hopeful that well-run economic programs will avoid the risks that threaten that rebound.

Managing Director Christine Lagarde told reporters that the world had gone through a lengthy economic "disaster" and now was moving through a period of strengthening growth.
