BAGHDAD (AP) — As the U.S. military expands its role in the northern part of Iraq, a U.S. Navy SEAL has died in what Defense Secretary Ash Carter says was a "combat death." A U.S. defense official says the American was killed with small arms fire, suggesting that Islamic State fighters likely came within a few hundred yards of the U.S. forces. The SEAL was among Americans advising Kurdish forces outside the city of Mosul, which is held by the Islamic State.

WASHINGTON (AP) — As Indiana voters head to the polls, Hillary Clinton says she is turning her attention to the general election. She told MSNBC today that her attention needs to be on beating GOP front-runner Donald Trump, if he wins his nomination fight. She adds that such a matchup would be "a tough campaign against a candidate who will literally say or do anything." Clinton calls Trump's statements on issues like foreign policy, abortion and wages "scary."

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — There are hopes that more survivors will be found from the building that collapsed last week in Kenya, leaving 23 people dead and more than 90 others missing. This morning, a nearly six-month-old girl was found and rescued from the rubble. Officials say she was found unharmed in a washbasin, and that furniture had created pockets that kept the building's columns from falling on her.

BOSTON (AP) — The driver of an amphibious sightseeing vehicle that collided with a scooter in Boston over the weekend, killing a woman, has a history of driving violations. State records show that he's been cited for speeding 10 times, was found at fault in a 2003 accident and was cited for several other infractions. Boston Duck Tours says it reviewed the driver's driving record in March and that there are "discrepancies" between information it received and information that was reported.
