Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. New WikiLeaks: A new batch of hacked emails released from WikiLeaks is reported to include, among other revelations, transcripts of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s speeches to the financial firm Goldman Sachs. The latest dump of dispatches also includes emails detailing Clinton campaign concerns over how the LGBT community would react to a statement from Clinton about former first lady Nancy Reagan. The emails are said to have been hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's email account. Update: WikiLeaks says founder Julian Assange’s internet connection was cut Monday morning by a "state party." Assange lives in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. He has been there for more than four years.

2. GOP office fire bombed: A Republican Party office in Hillsborough, N.C., was fire bombed early Sunday. Officials say the fire was ignited when a bottle filled with flammable liquid was thrown through the window. A slogan that read “Nazi Republicans leave town or else” was spray painted on a nearby wall. No arrests have been made. The incident came after a week that saw several women accuse GOP candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.

The suit claims Rolling Stone defamed associate dean Nicole Eramo, saying she persuaded a sexual assault survivor they article identified as “Jackie” not to report the incident. The magazine later apologized and retracted the article called “A Rape on Campus.”

4. Mosul offensive: The offensive to retake Iraq’s second largest city – Mosul – has begun, according to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al Abadi. The city was taken by ISIS forces in 2014. Al Abadi's said Monday, "The bell of liberty has been rung and operations to liberate Mosul have started. Very soon we will be among you to raise the Iraqi flag."

5. Tyson Gay’s daughter: The daughter of U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay was killed Sunday after she was caught in an exchange of gunfire between two cars. Trinity Gay, 15, was pronounced dead after the 4 a.m. shooting at a Lexington, Kentucky, restaurant parking lot. Two people were detained for questioning, according to authorities.

Country music star Randy Travis surprised the audience at Sunday's Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony by leading a sing-along of the gospel classic “Amazing Grace.” Many in the crowd, there to honor Travis, Charlie Daniels and record producer Fred Foster, were brought to tears by Travis’ version of the song. The country singer suffered a near fatal stroke following a viral infection three years ago.
