Euro hits fresh 2-year low, Aussie hit by retail sales

TOKYO, May 30 (Reuters) - The euro fell to a two-year low against the dollar on Wednesday on worries about soaring Spanish bond yields while the Australian dollar fell after weaker-than-expected Australian retail sales data.

The euro fell more than 0.3 percent to $1.24578 - its lowest since July 2010. The euro's fall was triggered in part by the fall in the Australian dollar. The Aussie fell 0.6 percent to $0.9775.
