Top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin is separating from her husband, former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, according to a statement released Monday.

Abedin wrote: "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy."

Donald Trump's presidential campaign is going into five more states with a new $10 million television ad buy. It's the largest for the Trump campaign so far, which has been relatively slow to invest in TV ads, relying instead on free media coverage and the Republican nominee's large social media following.

It's been a year since Christiane Heinicke has had an egg. Or been in a car. Or gone outside without a spacesuit.

Since last August, the German physicist has been living five other people in a 1,200-square-foot, solar-powered dome on the side of a Hawaiian volcano in an experiment in Mars-like living. The project, known as the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, or HI-SEAS, ended Sunday.

A crime lab in Brussels has been set on fire in what prosecutors describe as an apparent attempt to destroy evidence.

Around 2 a.m. local time, the perpetrators reportedly rammed a car through barricades at Belgium's national crime institute and then set fire to a lab, Teri Shultz reports for NPR from Brussels.

Five people have been detained in connection with the attack, says Ine Van Wymersch, a spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor's office. "This location was not chosen by accident," she says.

A suicide bombing in Yemen has killed at least 54 people in the southern city of Aden, The Associated Press reports, citing Yemen's health ministry.

Earlier the medical charity Doctors Without Borders, also known as MSF, posted on Twitter that one of their hospitals had received 45 wounded and was treating another 60-some wounded.

The attack has been claimed by the Islamic State, NPR's Alison Meuse reports, and an ISIS-affiliated news outlet says the bombing targeted an army recruitment center.
