Names in the Panama Papers link Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, fresh off a big win in New York, and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, to those who use offshore tax shelters.
Though the former secretary of state was quick to denounce the Panama Papers revelations, describing them as“outrageous tax havens and loopholes that super-rich people across the world are exploiting,” some of those found in the 11.5 million documents have connections with the Clintons dating back four decades.
A new report by McClatchy, one of more than 100 journalism outlets with access to the leaked documents, reveals a number of Clinton donors and associates used Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, “global provider for legal and trust services,” for their offshore accounting.
Serious flaws have emerged in Cologne Bonn Airport’s plans to combat a possible terrorist emergency after it was revealed a comprehensive emergency strategy program, meant for internal use only, had been published on the internet for all to see.

Over a thousand anti-government protesters gathered in front of Macedonian Parliament in capital Skopje to decry the president’s amnesty for officials accused of fraud and corruption. Reports say they were trying to tear through police cordon and storm the building.

FBI Director James Comey let slip a general idea of how much his agency paid to a third party for software to break into the work phone belonging to one of the San Bernardino terrorists.
At London’s Aspen Security Forum on Thursday, a moderator asked Comey how much the FBI paid the as-yet-unnamed third party for the software to hack into the iPhone, Reuters reported.
“A lot,” Comey replied.
“More – let’s see. More than I will make in the remainder of this job, which is seven years and four months, for sure,” Comey said, declining to give a more specific figure.
The FBI director earned $183,000 a year, as of January 2015, according to Reuters, which cited data from the FBI and the US Office of Management and Budget. Comey would thus earn $1.34 million over the next seven years and four months, assuming no raises or bonuses.
The highest amount the FBI had previously admitted to paying for a hacking technique was $1 million for US-based information security company Zerodium to break into phones, Reuters reported.
