May 31 (Bloomberg) -- Erste Group Bank AG of Austria led Czech shares toward their biggest monthly drop since September as rising borrowing costs in Italy and Spain fueled concern the debt crisis in the euro region is not contained, hurting riskier assets in emerging markets.

The stock dropped 1.3 percent to 365 koruna by 12:12 p.m. in Prague, extending May losses to 15 percent. The PX index of 14 companies, where Erste has an 18 percent weighting, dropped 0.3 percent today and 6.8 percent since the end of April.
