Turkey last night, but what with one thing and another it got squeezed off (if I can use that expression) so as a public service - here it is, with the planned introduction:
Turkey has a new president - Abdullah Gul. He's the country's foreign minister and was elected after three rounds of voting by the country's parliament.
It's been quite a journey for him - not so long ago he was an Islamist - he was minister of state in the first Islamist-led government in 1996. But he and his party were driven from office not long after - by an army fearful of its pro Islam, anti NATO stance. Since those days Mr Gul has become very pro western and pro European Union - but his critics - some of them in the army have their doubts. Mehmet Shim-shek is an MP from Abdullah Gul's Justice and Development Party.
