Puerto Rico has missed a bond payment in the first default on commonwealth debt, rating firm Moody's said Monday.

"Bondholders today did not receive full and timely payment of debt service due August 1 on bonds issued by the Puerto Rico Public Finance Corporation. Moody's views this event as a default," said Emily Raimes, vice president at Moody's Investors Service.
