By Gulsen Solaker and Orhan Coskun ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu appointed nationalist and pro-Kurdish opposition politicians to an interim power-sharing cabinet on Friday, but left his finance and economy ministers unchanged in a team dominated by ruling party loyalists. Davutoglu was forced to form the temporary cabinet after his AK Party failed to find a junior coalition partner following the loss of its parliamentary majority in a June election which ended more than a decade of single-party rule. The uncertainty has unnerved investors in Turkey's $870 billion economy and comes as it battles Kurdish militants at home and Islamic State fighters on its borders, helping send the lira currency to a series of record lows.
Tropical Storm Erika left at least 12 people dead in its wake when it swept over the island of Dominica on Friday then rolled on to pummel the Dominican Republic. While crews rushed to search for survivors and clean up scenes of chaos on Caribbean islands, the US state of Florida declared a state of emergency. Forecasters expect the southeastern United States to feel Erika's wrath early next week, after it has lashed Hispaniola and the north coast of Cuba.
