Beset by a weak currency and tension with the United States, Turkey is reaching out to Europe in an attempt to shore up relations with major trading partners despite years of testy rhetoric and a stalled bid for EU membership. The overtures by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has harshly criticized Germany and other European nations in the past, are part of a diplomatic campaign to capitalize on international unease over U.S. President Donald Trump and American tariff disputes.

A firefighter helicopter flies by the partially collapsed Morandi highway bridge in Genoa, Italy, Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018. Italian authorities have lowered the death to 38 from 39 in the collapse of a highway bridge in Genoa. Genoa Prefect Office official Raffaella Corsaro told AP that there had been a "misunderstanding" about information from ambulance dispatchers. Earlier, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said that as rescuers comb through the rubble for more bodies it will be "inevitable" that the death toll will eventually rise. Dozens of vehicles plunged into a dry river bed after the collapse Tuesday. (Italian Firefighters/Vigili del Fuoco via AP)
