Hillary Clinton delivers a keynote address at Columbia University, in New York, April 29, 2015The State Department on Friday released a first batch of emails by Hillary Clinton, giving an unprecedented glimpse into the work of the former top diplomat in the wake of a deadly 2012 attack on a US mission in Libya. The emails have stoked fresh controversy since Clinton -- who is now running for president -- admitted to using a private server and email address during her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. Both issues are likely to stalk Clinton as she bids to become the first woman to occupy the Oval Office in the 2016 elections, hoping to slide into the seat once held by her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

At least 39 people were killed on Friday in western Mexico during a fight between armed civilians and security forces, two government officials said, the latest bloodshed in an area that has been plagued by violent drug gangs. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said 37 civilians had been killed in the clash near to Tanhuato in the state of Michoacan, near the border with Jalisco, a region home to Mexico's second-biggest city, Guadalajara. Jalisco, one of the engines of the Mexican economy, is the base of the Jalisco New Generation cartel, which has become a major headache for President Enrique Pena Nieto this year.
