Plane slides off runway at LaGuardiaBy Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Delta Air Lines Inc jet landing during a snowstorm at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Thursday slid off the runway and struck a fence before coming to rest on a snow-covered embankment just feet from the frigid waters of Flushing Bay. None of the 127 passengers and five crew members were seriously injured as Delta flight 1086 from Atlanta skidded on the tarmac at about 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT). LaGuardia, the smallest of the New York area's three major airports, was immediately closed after the mishap. Hundreds of flights were canceled at LaGuardia, compounding weather-related travel disruptions in many parts of the country.

Review of Hillary Clinton emails to take months: official

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton delivers dinner remarks at EMILY's List 30th Anniversary Gala in WashingtonBy Steve Holland and Lesley Wroughton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A growing controversy over Democrat Hillary Clinton's use of personal email for work while she was U.S. secretary of state could drag on for months, threatening to cloud the expected launch of her 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton tried to cool the brewing firestorm late on Wednesday, saying she wanted the State Department to release the emails quickly. At the same time, the department is investigating whether Clinton violated policies intended to protect sensitive information when she conducted all of her official business through a personal account while serving as secretary from 2009 to 2013, the Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing a senior department official. Using personal email did not automatically break rules, but the department is determining whether work emails sent from that private account contained information that must be handled on a system meeting specific security protocols, the Washington Post reported.
