US State Department reviewing if Hillary Clinton's e-mails broke rules: Washington Post

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States State Department has begun a review of whether Mrs Hillary Clinton's use of personal e-mail accounts for work while she was secretary of state violated policies aimed at protecting sensitive information, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.

The Post quoted a senior department official as saying Mrs Clinton's use of personal e-mail accounts was not an automatic breach of the rules.

But the official added the department would examine if Mrs Clinton's e-mail messages included sensitive material and, if so, whether required security protocols were in place.
