Detroit only able to pay portion of debt

DETROIT — Detroit's emergency manager Kevyn Orr is telling creditors the city can only afford to pay about 10 cents on the dollar on unsecured debt.

The city is beginning a moratorium on all debt service payments to conserve cash and keep the city operating.

New numbers released Friday morning show Detroit's debt is around $17 million.
