WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee investigating the deadly Benghazi attacks expects to question another member of Hillary Rodham Clinton's inner circle in closed session. Yesterday, the panel interviewed Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff. Today, Jake Sullivan, a former policy director and deputy chief of staff at the State Department, will be questioned in what is expected to be a daylong session. The 2012 attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

ATLANTA (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says he's not sure whether he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination. During a visit to a synagogue in Atlanta, the vice president said his decision will hinge on whether he and his family have the "emotional energy to run." Biden recently lost his 46-year-old son, Beau, to cancer. The vice president's entry into the race would shake up the campaign at a time when some Democrats would like to see more options.

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Refugees are staging a sit-down protest on a stalled train northwest of Budapest. They want to move on from Hungary, preferably to Germany. They're refusing to go to a center where authorities are demanding they register. Police offered the asylum-seekers water, fruit and sweets, but many of them refused, shouting "No food! No food!" in protest. In Geneva, the head of the U.N. refugee agency is calling for the European Union to take "urgent and courageous measures" to deal with the crisis.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A judge in San Francisco is expected to decide today whether a Mexican national who's become the focus of a nationwide debate over immigration should stand trial for murder. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who's in the country illegally, is accused of shooting to death Kate Steinle (STYN'-lee) on a pier. The judge has already ruled that police acted appropriately in arresting and interrogating the suspect, and declined to toss out Lopez-Sanchez' statement to police that he shot Steinle. His lawyer says it was an accident.

NEW YORK (AP) — A drone buzzed over the court during a U.S. Open match in Louis Armstrong Stadium in New York last night and crashed into an empty section of seats. No one was hurt. The New York Police Department is investigating. The device flew diagonally through the arena during the next-to-last game of a second-round match that 26th-seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy won 6-1, 6-4 over Monica Niculescu of Romania.
