In this Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014 photo, people take pictures as they check currency rates on an electric board at a currency exchange office in Istanbul, Turkey. Turkey's central bank has sharply raised its key interest rate to 12 percent from 7.75 percent to try to stave off inflation and support the national currency, which has fallen sharply in recent weeks. The decision was taken late Tuesday at an emergency meeting the central bank called for after the currency, the lira, hit a record low. (AP Photo/Emrah Gurel) less
