Euro extends losses versus dollar, yen after ECB
NEW YORK Dec 6 (Reuters) - The euro dropped further against the dollar and yen on Thursday after comments from European Central Bank President Mario Draghi and a downgrade to the region's growth and inflation forecasts boosted expectations of an interest rate cut.

Against the yen, the euro lost 1 percent to 106.68 , having hit as low as 106.58 yen.
