World - Pakistan suspends execution ordered by military court after legal challenge

World - Key names out in Turkish interim government, but AK Party still dominates

By Gulsen Solaker ANKARA (Reuters) - An interim power-sharing government to be announced in Turkey on Friday will see the departure of high-profile figures including Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan, senior officials said, but there is little likelihood of any major policy shifts.

Along with Babacan - highly regarded internationally for his stewardship of the economy - Energy Minister Taner Yildiz, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc are also likely to leave office because of an AKP rule limiting them to three terms in parliament.
