MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The FBI will investigate whether there is classified information in newly discovered emails related to its probe of Hillary Clinton's private server, reinjecting one of the most toxic political issues into the presidential campaign less than two weeks before Election Day.
Wall Street stocks dove Friday after news that the FBI had reopened a probe into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails, giving a possible boost to rival Donald Trump's campaign. US stocks had been comfortably in positive territory prior to news that Federal Bureau of Investigation head James Comey informed lawmakers that he was restarting the probe. Comey in June sharply criticized Clinton's handling of classified information as Secretary of State on a private email server, but did not recommend charges be brought against her.
Portorož (Slovenia) (AFP) - Thirty years into a moratorium on commercial whaling, hundreds of the marine mammals, some endangered, are killed every year -- some in open defiance of the ban, others in the name of scientific research. The moratorium, monitored by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) which closed its 66th meeting in Slovenia on Friday is credited with having saved tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands of whales. Japan is the only country to hunt under an exemption to the moratorium which allows IWC member governments to issue special permits to kill whales for research.
