Turkey increases tariffs on some US goods, escalating feud

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey said Wednesday it is increasing tariffs on some U.S. products like cars, alcohol, and coal — a move that is unlikely to have much economic impact but highlights the deteriorating relations with the U.S. in a feud that has already helped trigger a currency crisis . The Turkish government said tariffs on American cars will be doubled to 120 percent while those on alcoholic drinks will be hiked by the same rate to 140 percent. Overall, the duties will amount to $533 million, a relatively small sum meant as retaliation for U.S. President Donald Trump's recent decision to double tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum. The tariffs also come a day after President Recep...

The Latest: Official: Genoa bridge company put profits first

ROME (AP) — The Latest developments following the deadly collapse of a highway bridge in Italy (all times local): 2 p.m. Italy's deputy premier, Luigi Di Maio, is blaming the collapse of a major highway bridge in Genoa on a lack of maintenance by the private company that operates many of the nation's toll highways. Speaking in Genoa, Di Maio said Wednesday that he was looking at revoking highway concessions. He said of the holding company that controls Autostrade Per Italia: "instead of investing money for maintenance, they divide the profits and that is why the bridge falls." Di Maio, who leads the anti-business 5-Star Movement party that is part of Italy's coalition government, took a swipe at the...
