Sun, 23 Oct 2016 16:11:10 GMT2016-10-23T16:11:10Z

WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump's campaign bluntly acknowledged Sunday that the real estate mogul is trailing Hillary Clinton as the presidential race hurtles toward a close, but insisted he still has a viable path to win the White House. With barely two weeks left and early voting underway in most of the U.S., Trump's team said "the race is not over" and pledged to keep campaigning hard - even in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania that polls show are n...

Trump's 'nasty woman' remark adds to woes with female voters

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:39:23 GMT2016-10-23T15:39:23Z

NEW YORK (AP) - "Such a nasty woman." Like many people, 23-year-old Emily DiVito was multitasking while watching last week's presidential debate, with a little studying and a little Twitter-surfing. But when DiVito heard Donald Trump say those four words to Hillary Clinton, she shot up in her seat. "The interruptions were so absurd, but that was particularly biting," she said. What's more, the moment gave DiVito, a former avid supporter ...

KHAZER, Iraq (AP) - Iraqi and Kurdish forces advanced on a town near Mosul on Sunday as part of an operation to retake the northern city from the Islamic State group, which staged an assault in western Iraq that appeared to be another diversionary attack. The Kurdish forces, known as peshmerga, said they "cordoned off" eight villages northeast of Mosul and are now less than 9 kilometers (5 ½ miles) from its outskirts. They said the cordoned off area measures around 100 squ...

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 12:03:36 GMT2016-10-23T12:03:36Z

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) - After her husband was killed by a Boko Haram suicide bomber late last year, Hajjagana Mbasaru was forced to pull her children from school and rely on friends to feed them. Like other widows of civilians fighting the Islamic extremists in northern Nigeria, she spent long months waiting for any kind of government support. Finally, last week, officials in northeastern Borno state stepped up with a small handout: two bags of rice and some beans. Though modest, Mbasaru ...

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - You probably already know whether you'll vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton on Election Day, leaving one important question to consider when you walk into your polling place: Is it OK to take a picture of your ballot? While secrecy in the voting booth has become a thing of the past for those ready to share their views and daily lives on social media, laws nationwide are mixed on whether voters are allowed to take pictures of themselves in the act or of th...

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 16:17:01 GMT2016-10-23T16:17:01Z

NEW YORK (AP) - In the photos, Alejandra Salgado and her little brother Francisco look like ordinary tourists strolling the streets of midtown Manhattan. He carries a shopping bag. She wears a white dress, a necklace and a leather tote slung over one shoulder. But the outings were hardly innocent. Over two hours, federal agents snapped pictures as the pair visited seven banks, stopping at each one to make cash deposits of just under $10,000 - all from piles of drug money stashed in their ba...

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:58:37 GMT2016-10-23T15:58:37Z

CHICAGO (AP) - With a mix of euphoria, relief and disbelief, long-suffering Chicago Cubs fans are setting their sights on the team's first World Series in 71 years - and some are remembering departed loved ones who stuck with the club once known as "lovable losers." First lady Michelle Obama joined the chorus Sunday morning, congratulating her hometown Cubs a day after the team defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago's Wrigley Field in Game 6 of the N...
