By Foo Yun Chee BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Microsoft and publishers across Europe attacked Googles antitrust deal with EU regulators, calling it a catastrophic proposal that would serve only to entrench its dominance of the online search market.

The 66-year-old Spaniard, who reached a preliminary deal with the worlds most popular Internet search engine in February, has around two months to issue the final decision before he leaves office. Sources told Reuters the EU may close the current case and open another one into Googles Android mobile operating system.
