WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday he accepted the US intelligence assessment that the "highest level" of the Russian government was responsible for cyber attacks during the 2016 US presidential campaign.

Asked during a news conference if he thought Russian President Vladimir Putin directed the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, Kerry said: "I accept the judgment of the intelligence community that this went to the highest level" of the Russian government.
