The two playoffs move to Istanbul and Athens respectively next week with Game Three scheduled for Tuesday and Game Four on Thursday. Centre Felipe Reyes, who had a mainly quiet night, nailed a crucial three-pointer in a 15-3 Real run that forced a final twist in a rip-roaring contest that kept the Madrid fans on the edge of their seats throughout.

World - European Parliament votes to call 1915 Armenian killings genocide

By Adrian Croft and Ayla Jean Yackley BRUSSELS/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The European Parliament backed a motion on Wednesday calling the massacre a century ago of up to 1.5 million Armenians a genocide, days after Pope Francis used the same term. Although the resolution repeated language previously adopted by the parliament in 1987, it could raise tensions with Turkey, whose President Tayyip Erdogan said even before the vote took place that he would ignore the result. After the vote, the Turkish Foreign Ministry accused the parliament of attempting to rewrite history. Muslim Turkey agrees Christian Armenians were killed in clashes with Ottoman soldiers that began on April 15, 1915, when Armenians lived in the empire ruled by Istanbul, but denies that this amounted to genocide.

World - Istanbul film festival scraps competitions in censorship row

The annual Istanbul Film Festival on Monday announced that it had scrapped all its competitions this year due to a bitter row over a film about Kurdish rebels pulled from the event following intervention by Turkish authorities. Dozens of Turkish filmmakers, including Cannes Palme d`Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan, said earlier Monday they would boycott the Istanbul Film Festival over `censorship` after it withdrew the documentary. The documentary film `Bakur` (`North`) was scheduled to be shown on Sunday afternoon, but that was cancelled at the last minute after the organisers received a letter from the Turkish culture ministry saying the film didn`t have the necessary registration certificate. More than 100 filmmakers, including Ceylan who won the top prize last year for his epic drama `Winter Sleep`, signed an open letter published in media Monday alleging `oppression and censorship` by the Turkish government.

World - Main Turkish opposition in election vow to boost economy, democracy

By Daren Butler ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey`s main opposition promised on Sunday to revitalize a flagging economy and boost democracy in an election manifesto which accused the ruling AK Party of polarizing the country and leaving millions in poverty during its 13 years in power. The AK Party is expected to win the June 7 parliamentary election comfortably, but uncertainty over whether it will gain enough support to change the constitution and boost the powers of President Tayyip Erdogan has recently unnerved investors. Erdogan says an executive presidency would accelerate decision making in Turkey, while critics argue it would fuel what they see as his growing authoritarianism. Republican People`s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu pledged instead to strengthen the parliamentary system, saying the government had undermined the separation of powers, media freedom and EU candidate Turkey`s foreign relations.

World - Discreet but proud: The Armenians of Istanbul

Yasmin Rostomyan makes no big outward show of her origins but works daily to keep her Armenian heritage alive and preserve it for the future in modern Turkey. `Turkey is my country, I do not want to leave,` she says. Yasmin is one of around 60,000 Turkish-Armenians who form modern Turkey`s Armenian community and have remained in the country despite the long shadow of history. The modern state of Armenia and the diaspora say that 1.5 million Armenians were killed in the first genocide of the 20th century from 1915 in a targeted Ottoman campaign to wipe them out of eastern Anatolia.
