US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has narrowly won the Nevada caucuses in the Democratic race for presidential nominee.
She is leading with 52% of the vote over her rival Bernie Sanders’ 48%.
She had been hoping for a big victory in Nevada where she is popular with Hispanic and minority voters.
The Republican primary is also under way in South Carolina, where frontrunner Donald Trump is trying to fend off Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
The votes could be key ahead of the “Super Tuesday” round on 1 March.
On that day, about a dozen states will choose their Republican and Democratic contenders for the 8 November presidential election, with about a quarter of all nominating delegates up for grabs.
