Updates for Sunday

In case you missed the news today -

Fidel Castro's younger brother Raul was unanimously elected as Cuba's president today. He then surprised everyone with his choice of 78-year-old Politburo hardliner Machado Ventura as his vice-president. It was thought Raul may look to pave the way to a younger generation of Cuban leaders.

Meanwhile Turkey's incursion into Iraq is continuing. Turkey is claiming the mission so far is a success, despite losing 15 troops and a helicopter. Turkish officials claim to have killed more than 100 Kurdish rebels so far and believe that many others are retreating from bases along the border.
