Both states have been on Democrats' wish lists in recent years given their increasingly favorable demographics, though the party had little expectation that it might flip ...

Pakistan's foreign secretary summoned the Indian High Commissioner on Thursday to say the government would be expelling a diplomat.

Indian positions came under heavy fire across the Line of Control, a de facto border with Pakistan, on Thursday night, violating a ceasefire at multiple locations, Defence Ministry spokesman Manish Mehta said.

Islamic State fighters forced women, children and the elderly to walk alongside them for days as human shields to cover their retreat to Mosul, separating out older boys and fighting-aged men along the way for an unknown fate, villagers said.
The EU has provided €134 million to date in humanitarian aid in Iraq, including €50 million for Mosul , says the text, which calls on EU member states "to step up efforts for stabilisation of the liberated areas".

He said: "I think the notion of getting the North Koreans to denuclearize is probably a lost cause ". "We want to continue to see a verifiable denuclearisation of the (Korean) peninsula", Mr Kirby said. Pyongyang regularly tosses around atomic threats, warning recently that if it detected any sign of aggression it would reduce Seoul and Washington to "a heap of ashes through a Korean-style pre-emptive nuclear strike".

Obama will hold an evening rally for Clinton in Orlando, along the "I-4 corridor" that's home to large numbers of potentially persuadable voters.
