Turkey election: 'Erdogan trying to encourage coalition'

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the inconclusive election result means no party can govern alone.

His AK party is meeting to try to form a government after losing its majority in a general election for the first time in 13 years.

It secured 41%, a sharp drop from 2011, and must form a coalition or face entering a minority government.

Mark Lowen reports from Istanbul.
