JOHANNESBURG, July 17 (Reuters) - Mozambique will default on
another Eurobond repayment due this week due to economic and
fiscal problems that gives the state "extremely limited"
capacity to repay any money this year, the finance ministry said
on Monday.
    The repayment on the 2023 Eurobond - the disastrous $850
million 'tuna bond' - had been due on July 18.
