  • Sweden wins Eurovision Song Contest while Russia is booed

    Sweden beat Russia to win the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, in an event described by organizers as beyond politics but marred by boos for the Russian that were apparently prompted by the Ukraine conflict and the Kremlin's anti-gay policies. Italy took third in Europe's iconic songfest, which this year carried the extra attraction of an entry by Australia.
