Turkish election officials have thrown out the results of an election for Istanbul's mayor. Turkey's ruling AKP party contested the election after the results showed them losing the mayor's seat for the first time in 25 years. Mehmet Bekaroğlu, a member of the CHP party, whose candidate won the election, said AKP officials threatened election officials with prison if they did not vote to overturn the election. A new mayoral election will be held in June.
