NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Extra police have been patrolling schools in a New Hampshire district that closed for a day yesterday following a threat to hurt students and teachers. Nashua (NASH'-wuh) Police Capt. David Bailey says 13 extra officers were in the schools today; usually there are three school resource officers. Other patrol officers also were asked to do frequent checks when they weren't on a call. Officials say the district's two high schools had about 65 to 70 percent attendance, compared to the normal 90-plus percent.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The woman accused of repeatedly plowing her car into pedestrians on a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk Sunday is now facing a murder charge.

Police say Holloway was homeless and broke, and that she told them she'd been chased away by security personnel wherever she had tried to sleep in her car.

She said, "We shouldn't let anybody bully his way into the presidency. Because that is not who we are as Americans." Clinton challenged Donald Trump more directly by saying that Trump's rhetoric on Muslims is "not only dangerous, it's shameful."
