The Turkish currency sank on Tuesday to a record low against the euro, hitting the psychologically key level of three lira to the euro as the country remained embroiled in a deep political crisis.

The euro briefly touched 3.0013 lira in early afternoon trading, while the Turkish currency was also trading at 2.1938 to the dollar.
