Turkey’s presidential election heads for runoff

From the BBC World Service: Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is leading the presidential election, but he's just shy of winning a key 50% of the vote. That means a runoff with opposition candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu is expected in a few weeks. Victoria Craig joins us from Ankara for more. Plus, the BBC's Leonardo Rocha reports on Argentina as it raises interest rates to 97%. And, China announces a raft of measures aimed at encouraging couples to have children.
