    Accusations of sexual abuse have dogged the campaign of the Republican candidate in Tuesday's special senate election in the US state of Alabama.

    Former President, Barack Obama is trying to counter current President Donald Trump's endorsement of the controversial Republican candidate, Roy Moore.

    Obama is specifically reaching out to black voters whose turnout is critical for the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones.

    Democrats sense a rare opportunity for victory in the deep south.

    Moore faces allegations of sexual assault and child molestation.
