A federal judge ordered the State Department to produce a plan by this week to release batches of Clinton's emails that were kept on her private server while she was secretary of state. Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, has come under criticism for using a private email account, hosted on a private server, instead of a government one for messages she sent and received as secretary of state.
KABUL (Reuters) - The Taliban claimed responsibility for an overnight attack on a guesthouse in the diplomatic enclave of the Afghan capital that ended on Wednesday morning after a stand-off with Afghan government forces.
