Easiest solution is snapping the euro cylinder.

If possible remove the handle set then grip the end of the cylinder and pull side to side until the lock snaps in the centre. Then simply insert a small metal hook inside and turn to unlock the multipoint locking system. Alternatively instead of a metal hook use the following tool designed just for the job:
