Thursday 17:16 GMT

On Saturday, the body of Bulgarian television journalist Viktoria Marinova was found in the city of Ruse, near the Danube River.

"Given Bulgaria's serious problems with press freedom and democracy, it is understandably being asked whether Marinova's murder could have been linked to her work as a journalist," Kaddik said.

Gender gap helps keep Democrats in front — CBS News poll

Monday 03:20 GMT

Democrats are being helped by a gender gap in the race for the House in these key districts: Men are backing Republican candidates by 7 percentage points, while women are supporting Democrats by 12 points.

Also, Democrats are partly relying on new voters — more than one in five of those backing Democrats did not vote in either the 2010 or 2014 midterm elections. Black voters' strong support for Democrats is in part because these voters see the Democratic Party working for them, and the Republican party against them.
