WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton has agreed to testify on Capitol Hill later this month about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, and about her email practices. Her lawyer David Kendall wrote to lawmakers today telling them she would agree to the request from a special panel investigating the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans. But Kendall said Clinton would testify only for one session. The committee chairman had requested that she appear twice, for a hearing on Clinton's use of private emails and for a separate session on Benghazi.

GARLAND, Texas (AP) — According to a law enforcement official, one of the two men who opened fire with assault rifles yesterday in Texas had been on the FBI's radar a few years ago during a terrorism investigation.

Authorities say an off-duty officer who was working security at the event saved lives by killing both gunmen.
