Huma Abedin lies low amid email probe

This is in the wake of the FBI's announcement last week that it was investigating thousands of emails found on a laptop shared by her and her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner.

Abedin, who was a staple by Clinton's side throughout the primaries and flew on almost every flight since the Clinton campaign plane started in September, has not flown with Clinton since Friday.

Clinton aide splits from sexting husband

Ms Abedin's announcement comes after a report emerged that he had allegedly exchanged sexual photos with a woman.

He appeared to have sent a photo of himself in his underpants with his toddler son nearby.

The former congressman resigned in 2011 after sending explicit photos to women by text message.

"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Ms Abedin said in a statement.
