Hillary Clinton will launch her long-expected campaign for the 2016 presidential race at the weekend, reports say.

The Guardian and the New York Daily News reported that the former First Lady and former secretary of state will launch her bid for the Democratic nomination on Sunday via social media.

Her campaign is expected to begin with a stop in Iowa, and will initially focus on intimate events rather than large rallies.

Mrs Clinton, 67, will become the first Democratic hopeful to formally enter the race, and is widely seen as a front-runner.

She has endured several scandals, from Bill Clinton's infidelity with White House intern Monica Lewinsky to the couple's investment in a failed land deal known as Whitewater.

More recently Mrs Clinton has been engulfed in a row over her use of a private email account while serving as secretary of state.

Mrs Clinton insists that she has complied with the rules and she merely used a private account as a "matter of convenience".
