A statue is seen next to the logo of Germany's Deutsche Bank in FrankfurtBy Vincenzo Damiani BARI, Italy (Reuters) - An Italian prosecutor is investigating Deutsche Bank over its sale of 7 billion euros ($8 billion) of Italian government bonds five years ago, an investigative source told Reuters. A prosecutor in Trani, a town in southern Italy, is investigating because Deutsche Bank allegedly told clients in a research note in early 2011 that Italy's public debt was no cause for concern, and then sold almost 90 percent of its own holding of the country's bonds, the source said on Friday. "We do not believe there is a case to answer here and are confident that we acted appropriately," a spokesman for Deutsche Bank said in an email to Reuters, adding the German lender was cooperating with Italian authorities.

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to supporters in Charleston, West VirginiaBy Steve Holland CHARLESTON, W.Va.

Some top Republican leaders - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan among them - are still expressing wariness about Trump but he is hoping to entice more support from Republicans by highlighting their common opponent. On Friday, Trump took aim at Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was U.S. secretary of state.
