Mrs Clinton points to examples of releases by WikiLeaks timed to do her maximum damage or distract from Mr Trump's campaign scandals.

She said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards".

USA intelligence, she said, had told her Mr Putin held a personal grudge against her, leading Moscow's widely-reported interference in the USA elections.

Woman's Hour presenter Jane Garvey apologized to listeners, saying on her show Monday, "Hillary Clinton has been delayed this morning, as I've already said ... she's not going to make it before the end of the program". Most of the protesting players are black. It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system.

Hillary Clinton referred to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election as a "cyber 9/11" at a speaking event in London Sunday. "My answer was, 'I hope so!'" he tweeted just after 9 a.m.

The officials said that rescue teams sent to worst affected villages of Kerni, Shahpur and Dhigwar started work immediately. Several people also got injured and an Army vehicle got damaged in the unprovoked firing by Paksitan.


At the news conference, Trump said that anyone kneeling during the playing of the national anthem at sporting events is "sitting, essentially".

Opening up about the men who she alleges blocked her path to the White House, Clinton says she was "shivved" by the former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, who handled the investigation of her use of a private email server as former secretary of state. Trump added, "There are a lot of reasons she didn't win, including the fact that she was not good at what she did".

He added later, "I think that her statement in itself is very disrespectful". The president reiterated that he hopes the investigation wraps up quickly.

Clinton said women were held to "maddening" double standards as compared to male counterparts as she encouraged her supporters to get organised to affect change in society.

Clinton used the bombshell Trump tape as an example of how WikiLeaks allegedly tried to deflect attention from a bad news story, resurrecting the incident in the wake of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's fall from grace over his treatment of women.
