Reuters on Friday reported that the computer network used by Clinton's campaign, which is based in Brooklyn, had been hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, citing people familiar with the matter. The campaign said a data program maintained by the Democratic National Committee and used by the campaign and other entities was accessed as part of a cyber attack on the DNC.

Like some other Alaska villages, the Inupiat Eskimo community of 600 is facing an expensive relocation because of erosion, which is eating away at the current site on a narrow island just north of the Bering Strait. The community will hold a special election Aug. 16, 2016, asking residents if they should develop a new community at a nearby location or stay put with added protections. (AP Photo/Diana Haecker, File)ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A tiny island village on Alaska's storm-battered western coast is entering a new chapter in its decades-long pursuit to move the entire community from its badly eroding shores to safer ground.
