Clinton makes history as Democratic presidential nominee in US election

Democrat Hillary Clinton has become the first woman in US history to be nominated for president by any major party.
Clinton's nomination comes after Senator Bernie Sanders' supporters disrupted the first day of the convention with boos and jeers.
However, in a symbolic gesture of party unity, former Democratic rival Senator Bernie Sanders took the microphone to move to suspend the procedural rules and declare Clinton as the nominee by acclamation.
