International: Democrats have won key elections in New York City and the state of Virginia, in the first major round of polls since President Obama's re-election in 2012.


Preliminary results show Bill de Blasio will replace three-term Mayor Michael Bloomberg to become the first Democrat leading New York in two decades.


In Virginia, Terry McAuliffe beat Republican Ken Cuccinelli in a very close race for the governor's seat.


Republican Chris Christie was easily re-elected governor of New Jersey.


Tuesday's races are seen as an early test of both parties' strengths ahead of next year's congressional mid-term elections. BBC
