PRESIDENTIAL RACE-BILL CLINTON

KEENE, New Hampshire — Bill Clinton promised voters in 1992 that they'd be getting "two for the price of one" if they elected him to the White House — a presidential duo of the young Arkansas governor and his Yale Law-educated wife. Nearly a quarter century later, the duo is back — but not quite the same.

ZIKA VIRUS-TRAVEL

NEW YORK — Pregnant women should avoid traveling to Latin America and Caribbean countries that have outbreaks of a tropical illness linked to birth defects, health officials say. The illness is caused by the Zika virus which is spread through mosquito bites. 

VENEZUELA-ECONOMIC EMERGENCY

CARACAS, VENEZUELA — In a stunning display of Venezuela's tense new political order, President Nicolas Maduro suffers through a long scolding from the head of the country's new opposition Congress Friday after presenting his state of the nation address and declaring an economic emergency.

HALEIWA, Hawaii — Two Marine Corps helicopters carrying six crew members each collided and went down off the Hawaiian island of Oahu while on a nighttime training mission, and rescuers searched choppy waters where debris had been sighted.
