|Blow to Clinton as FBI probe revives email scandal|
The FBI said Friday it was investigating newly discovered emails linked to Hillary Clinton's use of a private server during her time as secretary of state, triggering a blistering fight-back from the presidential frontrunner's campaign. Concern that Clinton's once seemingly unstoppable momentum towards the White House would be replaced by uncertainty rocked the markets, with stocks, the dollar and oil prices tumbling lower on the prospect of a close vote. Comey had dropped his 11th-hour bombshell in a letter to congressional committees investigating allegations that the 69-year-old Clinton put US secrets at risk during her time at the State Department.

|Philippines' Duterte says God warned him off swearing|
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has promised to stop swearing, saying God spoke to him on a flight from Japan on Thursday, warning him the plane would crash if he kept using bad language. The maverick former mayor, famous for profanity that has included outbursts aimed at Pope Francis and U.S. President Barack Obama, said he heard a voice and realised it was God, telling him to clean up his act. "I was looking at the skies while I was coming over here ... everybody was asleep, snoring, but a voice said that, 'you know, if you don't stop epithets, I will bring this plane down now'," Duterte said at a news conference late on Thursday upon arrival in his home city of Davao.

|U.S. Supreme Court takes up major transgender rights case|
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed for the first time to rule on transgender rights in a case in which a Virginia public school district is fighting to prevent a female-born transgender high school student from using the boys' bathroom. The justices agreed to hear the Gloucester County School Board's appeal of a lower court's April 19 ruling that transgender students are protected under U.S. laws barring sex-based discrimination. The case involves a 17-year-old transgender student named Gavin Grimm, who identifies as male and sued in 2015 to win the right to use the school's boys' bathroom.
