European stock markets slid on Wednesday, dragged down by volatile trading in Shanghai amid concerns over the world's second biggest economy China, traders said.

Shanghai's index managed to close up 1.23 percent thanks to late bargain-hunting after a more than five percent plunge in morning trade.

London's benchmark FTSE 100 index fell 0.93 percent to stand at 6,465.71 points around midday in the capital.

Frankfurt's DAX 30 dropped 1.19 percent to 10,786.05 points and the CAC 40 in Paris shed 0.72 percent to 4,935.60 compared with Tuesday's close.
Athens' main index however rose 0.81 percent to 678.66 points, as the German parliament voted by an overwhelming majority to back a third bailout for Greece, with Chancellor Angela Merkel spared a major rebellion of deputies opposing the aid.

In foreign exchange, the euro rose to $1.1037 from $1.1029 late on Tuesday in New York.

The dollar dipped before the release of minutes from the US Federal Reserve's last meeting, which investors hope will offer fresh clues about the timing of an interest rate rise.

European equity markets dropped "as once again weaker markets in Asia are souring sentiment for investors", said Markus Huber, senior analyst at brokers Peregrine & Black.
Asian stock markets closed mixed on Wednesday, with Shanghai rebounding from heavy falls on more state support, while Tokyo slumped after the release of weak trade data.

China's central bank has made $17 billion (15.3 billion euros) available to more than a dozen financial institutions to help boost the economy, it said Wednesday, a day after injecting nearly $100 billion into two government policy banks.

Elsewhere, markets were eyeing the Fed minutes to see if they back up growing expectations of a US rate hike as early as next month.

Some analysts have argued that the US central bank could delay any increase following China's devaluation of the yuan last week -- news that weighed on the dollar.

"Fed Chair Janet Yellen has been very clear in her view in recent months that the first rate hike in more than nine years should come this year," noted Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at Oanda trading group.

"Inflation has been a key concern for the US for some time and the strong dollar has not helped matters. The low inflation environment is expected to continue for some time yet, with wages likely to remain fairly suppressed as US companies do whatever it takes to compete with their foreign peers," he added.

On Greece, lawmakers in the Bundestag lower house have approved the 86 billion euro rescue by 454 votes to 113.

As Europe's biggest economy and contributor to Greek aid, Germany plays a key role in the emergency package approved also by eurozone finance ministers.
