Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denies Moscow was behind hacking of US Democratic Party emails

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has denied accusations that Moscow was behind the hacking of Democratic Party emails.

When asked whether Russia was responsible for the hack, Mr Lavrov told reporters: "I don't want to use four-letter words."

His comments comes days after Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned following a leak of internal DNC emails showing officials actively favoured Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the presidential primary.
