WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican presidential race now turns to Indiana and it'll be one of Ted Cruz's last chances to slow front-runner Donald Trump. Trump needs to keep winning to stay on his narrow path to the GOP nomination, but he's coming off yesterday's clean sweep of five primaries in the Northeast. Today, Trump gives a foreign policy address in Washington.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders concedes that while he'll "have to win some big victories," he's still in the race, following yesterday's primary losses in 4 of 5 states to Hillary Clinton. Clinton has been eager to turn her attention to Trump, who Clinton advisers say they won't underestimate.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The nation's midsection is preparing for another day of rough weather. Yesterday, a series of storms brought huge hail and high winds, but not as many tornadoes as had been feared. No deaths were reported, but in northern Texas, four people were hospitalized after their vehicles were caught up in a tornado that hit last night.

OXFORD, Ala. (AP) — The city of Oxford, Alabama, has passed an ordinance that makes it illegal to use a public restroom different from the gender on a person's birth certificate. Council President Steven Waits tells local news outlets the ordinance was in response to Target's new restroom and changing room policies that allow transgender employees and shoppers to use the restroom that matches their gender identity.

BANGKOK (AP) — It's so hot in Thailand that the animals at Bangkok's zoo are being fed special frozen fruit pops. People are flocking to shopping malls just to soak up the air-conditioning. And authorities are telling people to stay out of the blazing sun to avoid heat stroke. April in Thailand is usually hot and sweaty, but this year, temperatures have been as high as 111.7 degrees — just short of an all-time record.
