British media: 'Leave' side will win EU vote
LONDON - UK broadcasters are predicting that Britain has voted to leave the 28-nation European Union in a historic referendum.
With 329 of 382 counting centers reporting results, the "leave" side is ahead by over 900,000 votes.
The results of Britain's vote Thursday will seriously hurt the continental unity forged after World War II. The U.K. is the first major country to decide to leave the bloc, which evolved from the ashes of war as the region's leaders sought to build links and avert future hostility.
The British pound has tumbled to a 31-year low as the results of the vote spook global markets.
