WASHINGTON (AP) — The email practices of Hillary Rodham Clinton, who used a private account exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state, grew more intriguing with the disclosure Wednesday that the computer server she used traced back to her family's New York home, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.
At least 17 miners were killed and 16 more were missing and feared dead in eastern Ukraine after a blast on Wednesday at an accident-prone coal mine in the rebel-held city of Donetsk. "The fate of 16 other miners is still unknown," spokeswoman of the rebel emergency ministry in Donetsk Yuliana Bedylo told AFP. The head of the rebel Donetsk People's Republic administration, Maksim Leshchenko, told reporters that 197 workers, out of 230 in the mine when the explosion occurred shortly before 0400 GMT, had been rescued alive. Emergency workers were forced to call off the rescue operation late Wednesday due to the threat posed by the high methane levels, Mykhaylo Volynets of the Ukrainian Independent Miners Union said.
