A man rides an electronic bike past a billboard for the upcoming G20 summit in HangzhouBy Jonathan Spicer NEW YORK (Reuters) - Six U.S. senators have urged President Barack Obama to prioritize cyber crime at a this weekend's G20 summit in China in the wake of the $81-million heist from Bangladesh's central bank, according to a letter obtained by Reuters. The letter from Sherrod Brown, a senior Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, and five other senators want the U.S. President to press leaders from the world's biggest economies to commit to a "coordinated strategy to combat cyber-crime at critical financial institutions," in G20 communiques at the Sept. 4-5 summit in Hangzhou, China. The letter, dated Monday, cites the February incident in which hackers breached Bangladesh Bank's systems and used the SWIFT banking network to request nearly $1 billion from an account held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter called on Turkey to stay focused on fighting Islamic State militants and not to target Kurdish elements of Syrian rebel forces, which Washington backs. The White House said a continued Turkish push would complicate the fight against Islamic State.
