BICSKE, Hungary (AP) — Hundreds of weary migrants from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are on their way to Western Europe. The migrants are aboard buses provided by Hungary's government after Austria said it and Germany would take them in. Before Hungary decided to provide transportation, the refugees managed to break away from police and march for hours toward the border.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says he opposes the Iran nuclear deal because it "legitimizes" the program. That's a setback to White House hopes for preventing a congressional challenge to the deal and sparing President Barack Obama from using a veto. But Obama does have enough votes to uphold his veto.

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — The lawyer for a jailed Kentucky county clerk says marriage licenses issued to gay couples without her authority are void and "not worth the paper they are written on" because she didn't authorize them. At least three gay couples received marriage licenses today in Rowan County from one of Kim Davis' deputies. The county attorney says the licenses are valid.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — A Joint Terrorism Task Force is trying to determine whether a fire that heavily damaged a Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington state early today was arson. The cause of the fire is not yet known, but an FBI special agent says federal agencies are involved because of the history of anti-abortion activists targeting health care providers offering abortion services.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government's August employment report is the last snapshot of the job market before the Federal Reserve meets in two weeks. It shows an economy growing at a modest but steady pace. Unemployment was at a seven-year low of 5.1 percent last month, but hiring slowed. Overall, it provided few clues to whether the Fed will raise interest rates later this month.
