Donald Trump denies claims of Russian interference

Reuters won a Pulitzer Prize for global reporting that revealed links between Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and police assassination squads, and also won a prize for feature photography of the Rohingya migrant crisis, the prize administrator said on Monday.

It's a huge win for Lamar: his album is the first ever non-classical or jazz release to be honoured in this way.

The Pulitzer board on Monday called the album a work that captures the complexity of African-American life.

DAMN. also won the 2018 Grammy award for Best Rap Album of the year, however, many were quick to acknowledge how curious it was his Pulitzer-worthy work still had yet to win a Grammy for Album of the Year.

Previous Pulitzer music winners include jazz musicians Wynton Marsalis and Ornette Coleman.

The Times and The Washington Post took the national reporting award for their coverage of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential race and contacts between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian officials.

The Washington Post also won the investigative reporting prize for revealing allegations of sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama decades ago.
