Mexico's president has disputed claims he and US presidential hopeful Donald Trump did not discuss who would pay for a proposed wall between the two countries.

After a meeting between the pair on Wednesday, Republican candidate Trump insisted: "We didn’t discuss who will pay for the wall".

But Mexico's Enrique Pena Nieto later refuted the claim, saying he made clear his country would not fund the 2,000-mile construction.

Taking to Twitter, he said: "At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall".

Hillary Clinton has mocked Donald Trump's surprise visit to Mexico.

Mr Trump is travelling south of the border to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto - despite calling Mexicans "rapists" and "murderers", and promising to build a wall along the border.

Speaking at a veterans' event in the key battleground state of Ohio, Mrs Clinton said: "It certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbours for a few hours, and then flying home again - that is not how it works."


Russian airstrike 'killed IS spokesman al-Adnani'

bu Mohammed al-Adnani had repeatedly called on attacks against the West.

A Russian airstrike killed the so-called Islamic State's (IS) spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, Russia's defence ministry has said.

Russian officials said intelligence confirmed the strike on Aleppo province, which killed 40 (IS) militants, including al-Adnani, who was also the group's chief strategist.

His death is seen as a major blow to IS, which has been on retreat in Iraq and Syria.

The US said it launched an airstrike targeting al-Adnani in the Syrian city of al-Bab, which is northeast of Aleppo.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said the US was still assessing the results of the strike.
