On eve of Democratic convention, Clinton struggles for party unity | Reuters

PHILADELPHIA Democrat Bernie Sanders demanded the party chairwoman resign and questioned the vice presidential pick of Tim Kaine on Sunday, raising doubts about Hillary Clinton's chances for party unity on the eve of her presidential nominating convention. Lingering bitterness from the heated primary campaign between Clinton and Sanders erupted after more than 19,000 leaked Democratic National Committee emails seemed to confirm Sanders' frequent charge that the DNC played favorites in the race. "I'm not shocked but I'm disappointed," Sanders said on ABC's "This Week," repeating a demand he made earlier this year that DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz step down from the post. #United States #Middle East #Election #democratic #article

Munich gunman planned attacks for one year - Bavarian state crime office | Reuters

MUNICH The 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman who killed nine people in Munich on Friday began planning the attack one year ago after visiting the site of a 2009 school shooting in southwest Germany that killed 15 people, a Bavarian state official said on Sunday. Robert Heimberger, president of the Bavarian state crime office, said material founded at his home showed the gunman was an avid player of violent video crimes who purchased his weapon -- a reactivated Glock 17 pistol -- on the so-called dark net, an area of the Internet accessible only via special software. Heimberger said the parents of the gunman remained in shock and were not able to be interviewed. #Middle East #Europe #Iran #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #article
