The Democratic US presidential nominee is “recovering nicely” after suffering health issues during Sunday’s 9/11 memorial. The US government has voluntarily halted the construction of a portion of the Dakota oil pipeline. And 20 years after the introduction of effective medication for HIV, three people who were dying of AIDS describe the earth-shattering impact of antiretroviral drugs.
HERE ARE THE TOP STORIES
Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.
Clinton struggled to walk after becoming “overheated” and “dehydrated” during New York City’s annual 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday. Hours later, her campaign said she had been diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.
The candidate’s doctor said she’s on antibiotics and has been advised “to rest and modify her schedule.” She won't travel to California on Monday or Tuesday as originally planned, a spokesman said.
Clinton’s health has been the subject of conspiracy theories online, which have been perpetuated by the Trump campaign.

And a little extra.
Clinton said on Saturday she regretted calling some of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” during an LGBT-focused fundraiser. She characterized half of Trump supporters as people to “empathize with” and the other half as “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”

What happens when you plan for an early death only to recover?
Twenty years after the introduction of effective medication for HIV, three people who were dying of AIDS describe the earth-shattering impact of antiretroviral drugs. BuzzFeed News’ Patrick Strudwick reports.
Their stories, which span three continents, capture not only the transformation in their health, lives, and relationships but also their relationship to life itself.
