The loss is especially hard for Erdogan who launched his political career in Istanbul as mayor in the 1990s and has triumphed in more than a dozen parliamentary, presidential and local polls since his party came to power in 2002. The Turkish lira, which has dipped since the election, firmed on Wednesday.

As donations for the restoration of the Notre-Dame cathedral top $900,000, the director of Brazil's devastated National Museum can only hope for such deep pockets in his own country. Nearly eight months after a faulty air conditioning system sparked a fire that gutted Latin America's main natural history museum and destroyed most of its collection, just $280,000 or so has been raised for its reconstruction. "We are very happy for the extremely positive reaction of French society and we hope that following this example Brazilian businesses and millionaires will start to send us their donations," Alexander Kellner, director of the Rio de Janeiro-based museum, told AFP.
Ukraine's presidential runoff Sunday is a battle between a billionaire tycoon who rode anti-Russian protests to the nation's top office five years ago and a comedian who plays a president in a TV sitcom. Comic actor Volodymyr Zelenskiy's commanding lead in the polls reflects widespread disillusionment with President Petro Poroshenko and Ukraine's old political elite, as well as a seething anger against rampant corruption and a lack of opportunity that have left many in endemic poverty. "It's not only a clash between the old candidate and the new one, but between old and new technologies," said Zelenskiy's chief digital campaign strategist, 28-year-old Mikhail Fyodorov.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to tease a Kentucky Republican lawmaker for backpedaling on his invitation for her to visit the Bluegrass State. The freshman New York Democrat – often referred to as "AOC" – used her Twitter platform Wednesday to again call attention to Rep.
