U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at a campaign rally in TampaBy John Whitesides PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - U.S. Democrats open a four-day convention on Monday to nominate Hillary Clinton for the White House on a divisive note, with a furor over embarrassing leaked emails threatening to derail what they hoped would be a message of party unity. Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned on Sunday, effective at the end of the convention, after more than 19,000 DNC emails showed party officials working to undermine the insurgent presidential campaign of Clinton's primary rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. The disclosure angered Sanders' supporters and complicated Democratic plans to portray a convention image of no-drama competence in contrast to the volatile Donald Trump, who was formally nominated for president at a chaotic Republican convention in Cleveland last week.

British Prime Minister May addresses news conference in BerlinBy Amanda Ferguson BELFAST (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May visited Northern Ireland on Monday in a bid to allay fears about the impact of the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union on the British province's peace process, its border with Ireland and billions of pounds of EU funding. The June 23 Brexit vote has raised questions over the future of the open border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, which will become Britain's only land frontier with the bloc. Concerns have also been raised about the legal status of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which ended three decades of fighting between Catholic nationalists seeking a united Ireland and Protestant unionists who wanted to keep Northern Ireland British.

By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - The Australian government has criticized the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for rejecting a blanket ban on Russian athletes at the Rio de Janeiro Games, saying their participation risks damaging the reputation of the Olympic movement. The IOC rejected calls for Russia to be banned from next month's Games over its doping record on Sunday, putting the onus on international sports federations to decide whether individual athletes should be allowed to compete. The decision has been endorsed by some national Olympic committees but drew criticism from athletes and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which said it would "inevitably lead to ... lesser protection for clean athletes." Australian sports minister Sussan Ley said it was a "horrifying thought" that clean athletes might not be able to compete on a level playing field at Rio.
