WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is escalating his attacks on Hillary Clinton, accusing her of running "a vast criminal enterprise run out of the State Department." Trump, who is trailing in the polls, says that revelations that many donors to the Clinton family foundation met with as secretary of state represent "one of the most shocking scandals in American political history." He told a rally in New Hampshire, "It's Watergate all over again."

PESCARA DEL TRONO, Italy (AP) — Aftershocks are adding to the anxiety and despair in central Italy, a day after a quake killed 250 people and leveled three small towns. One aftershock today crumbled some buildings that had already been cracked yesterday, prompting authorities to close roads. Firefighters and rescue crews using sniffer dogs have been working in teams in the areas that were hardest hit. They're not saying when their work will shift from saving lives to recovering bodies.

CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that a suburban Chicago terrorism suspect is mentally unfit to stand trial on charges he placed what he believed to be a bomb outside a bar. The judge says 22-year-old Adel Daoud is sincere in his belief that aliens, the Illuminati and Freemasons are conspiring against him. Agents arrested Daoud in a 2012 sting after he placed what he believed to be the explosive device outside a Chicago bar. He also is charged with attacking an inmate who allegedly taunted him with a Prophet Muhammad drawing.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's governor sees progress in the state's anti-drug efforts, despite a new report that shows another record death toll from accidental overdoses. Accidental drug overdoses killed a record 3,050 people in Ohio last year. Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) says he feels "terrible" about the deaths, but believes lives are being saved by steps taken, including increased monitoring of drug prescriptions and crackdowns on "pill mills." He wants continued expansion of anti-drug messages to young people, beginning in their early school years.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Investigators from Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are looking into the hacking of the website of actress and comedian Leslie Jones. The hack exposed personal information and intimate photos of the "Saturday Night Live" star, and left hateful and racist images on the website. The "Ghostbusters" actress was also targeted on Twitter last month with a barrage of racial slurs and obscene photos. She called on the social networking service to do more to curb harassment, and Twitter banned several users as a result.
