LONDON:–  Oil surged Friday, mirroring a recovery across European stock markets, as traders hunted for bargains after a turbulent week, analysts said. Crude futures in London and New York trading were up 5.0 percent around 1200 GMT, a day after US prices tanked towards 13-year lows. Thursday's sharp falls "triggered some kind of bargain-hunting", said Bernard Aw, a market strategist at trading firm IG.–AFP
