Brexit: Europe stunned by UK Leave vote
Biggest crisis yet for Brussels - by Chris Morris
This represents the biggest setback in decades for those who support the idea of European unity.
The EU has been dealing with multiple crises in recent years - but this could, and probably will, dwarf them all.
Veteran European politician Carl Bildt has already spoken of immediate turmoil and long-term uncertainty.
David Cameron's fellow leaders will expect him to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty next week, triggering a divorce negotiation lasting at least two years - a vastly complicated legal and political process.
The rest of the EU will want to forge a good deal with the British government, but in many capitals there will be little appetite for doing the UK any favours. That's partly because Euroscepticism is on the rise across the continent, and influential political leaders will not want to give the impression that leaving is easy.
