BICSKE, Hungary (AP) — Migrants and refugees stranded for days in Hungary are boarding buses chartered by the government to take them to the border with Austria. Officials there say Austria and Germany will grant them unhindered entry. Hundreds -- some of them from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan were attempting to make a days-long trek. Thousands have been stuck in Budapest, where police refused to allow thousands to board trains for destinations in Europe.

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — An attorney for Kentucky clerk Kim Davis says she has a "clean conscience" as she sits in jail for contempt because she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, also says the licenses that were handed out today are void and "not worth paper that they are written on." At least three gay couples received licenses in Rowan County from her deputies today. Staver says Davis will appeal the contempt order. He says he met with Davis in jail and she is in very good spirits.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says her use of a private email system at the State Department wasn't the "best choice." And she acknowledges in an interview that she didn't "stop and think" about her email set-up when she became President Barack Obama's secretary of state in 2009. She told NBC News that there were "so many problems around the world" that she didn't think about what kind of email system there would be. She says it doesn't raise questions about her judgment.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Economists say today's jobs report for August provides very little guidance on whether the Federal Reserve will start to raise interest rates this month. The unemployment rate fell to a seven-year low of 5.1 percent. But hiring in August was the slowest in five months, with 173,000 new jobs. The report appears neither strong enough nor weak enough to tilt the Fed either way. Stocks declined as investors pondered the Fed's next move.

DENVER (AP) — Not enough R-E-S-P-E-C-T? A federal judge is preventing The Telluride Film Festival from screening a documentary tonight about a 1972 Aretha Franklin concert without the consent of the 'Queen of Soul.' The court -- in Denver -- ruled that a 1968 contract that Franklin signed allowing the use of the footage appeared to relate only to her music recordings.
