Turkey's Erdogan holds talks with leaders on lowering Qatar tension - sources

ISTANBUL, June 6 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone with the leaders of Qatar, Russia, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia on lowering tension, presidential sources said, after Arab powers cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of support for Islamist militants.
