Two California men were charged Friday with allegedly providing support to the Islamic State group, with one accused of trying to travel to the Middle East to join the jihadists. Anaheim residents Muhanad Badawi and Nader Elhuzayel, both 24, were charged after investigators tracked their communications on social media and found messages claiming their support for IS. On May 3, Elhuzayel tweeted his support for a failed attack by two gunmen on an exhibit of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas.
By Mark Hosenball and Alistair Bell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top aides to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fretted over how she would be portrayed after the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, emails released on Friday showed. The emails from Clinton's personal email account made public by the State Department do not appear to contain any revelations that could badly damage her bid for the presidency in 2016 or provide fodder for Republicans who accuse her of being negligent before the Benghazi attacks. A senior adviser to Clinton forwarded an email from a State Department official about positive media coverage of a statement she gave on Sept. 12, 2012, the day after the killings.
