OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton "has a lot to explain" should she run for president, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann told the nation's largest gathering of conservative activists on Saturday, the final day of its annual meeting.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Saturday called for an investigation into who was behind the deaths of dozens of people in Kiev last month in attacks by snipers, saying the truth could no longer be "covered up". Lavrov's comments came after Estonia's top diplomat told EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton in a phone call leaked this week that the then-Ukrainian opposition to president Viktor Yanukovych may have been involved in the attacks. The leaked call has been played up by Russian state media over the last few days and Lavrov's comments were the latest sign Moscow wants to use the sniper controversy as an argument to discredit Ukraine's new authorities. "The latest information about the so-called snipers case can no longer be covered up," Lavrov told a news conference in Moscow with his Tajik counterpart.
