Ex-PM Borut Pahor wins Slovenian presidency

Former Slovenian PM Borut Pahor has won an emphatic victory in the country's presidential run-off election.

With almost all votes counted, Mr Pahor polled 67% to incumbent President Danilo Turk's 33% in a poll following days of protests over the economy and alleged government corruption.

A number of people were injured during anti-austerity protests in Ljubljana on Friday, ahead of the vote. Slovenia is facing one of the eurozone's deepest recessions.
