AFP: Communist wins Cyprus presidential vote

NICOSIA (AFP) -- Communist party leader Demetris Christofias won the presidential election in Cyprus on Sunday, a result set to give a major boost to efforts to reunify the island after 34 years of division.

Parliament speaker Christofias, 61, garnered 53.36 percent of the vote against 46.64 percent for conservative former foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides, according to final results of an election billed by the local media as one of the most crucial in the history of Cyprus.

I hope we'll get a diary from talos or UpstateNY or anyone else closer to the fire.
