with a clean sweep over donald trump in colorado. how will this affect the new york primary, now just nine days away? make it stop. ten days into april, and we're still seeing cold and snow that just won't quit. tens of millions on the east coast waking up to temperatures that are 15 to 20 degrees below normal. we're grilling in woman, dylan, for some answers. it all comes down to this, final day of play at the masters about to get under way in augusta. jordan spieth barely holding on to the lead. he's facing stiff competition. and it's really anyone's game, today, sunday, april 10th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today," live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning,ed wi welcome
6:02 am
"today," i'm sheinelle jones. >> i'm craig melvin, here with dylan dreyer. i know you were watching with baited breath for your boy rory mcilroy to come back. he went off the rails a little bit yesterday. >> you know i think it's the wind. you couldn't really wait out the wind. >> in any other sport if you blame the wind, it's a joke, but here we're serious. let's get to our top story, belgian prosecutors have released new details about what they've learned from the so-called man in the hat. they now say the bombers were planning to attack france again but instead struck closer to home. nbc's global correspondent bill neely has more on these overnight developments. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. it was the deadliest ever isis
6:03 am
terror cell, clearly being broken up. and we're now learning new details about what it plans to hit next. prosecutors say its number one target was france. belgium was only hit after the gang feared arrest and rushed an attack. at the center of all the plots, the man who has now begun to talk. [ sigh sirens ] >> reporter: the belgian prosecutors this morning say the isis cell in belgium had been planning a second hit on france. but the rest of the paris bombers surprised them and the speed of the investigation rushed them into an attack on belgium. the new investigation is coming for this man, hunted for months, the man in the hat, wielding his explosives and now confessing his role.
6:04 am
mohamed abrini, arrested friday, talking saturday, has been formally charged with the brussels massacres. prosecutors say he admits fleeing the bombings, telling them he threw his jacket in a garbage can and sold his hat. prosecutors had evidenceab ev a was one of the paris attackers. but until he talked, his roles in brussels was unclear. now he's telling them more. >> brussels is a safer place with abrini in jail. it does not mean there aren't many more on the loose. >> reporter: police are on the the hunt for more isis suspects, raiding an apartment block. the fear is that the terror gang may be bigger and ready to strike again. abrini is likely to be questioned again today. no one involved in the investigation either here or in france really believes that everyone involved in the gang has either been captured or
6:05 am
killed. so there are no celebrations here about the arrests and the charges. they're on their guard here. the police car has just gone past, the sirens are still in this city. belgium's prime minister is warning people to stay alert and to be careful, craig. >> bill neely for us in belgium, bill, thank you. in india at least 100 people are dead after a huge fire broke out at a temple in the middle of a fireworks display. kelly cobiella has more. >> reporter: sheinelle, thousands of worshippers were entitled the hindu temple in southern india along with stacks of fireworks when a stray spark set off this, a devastating series of explosions at 3:30 a.m. white smoke and flames. the explosions so powerful, witnesses said chunks of concrete were flying half a mile through the air. that fire burned for hours, part
6:06 am
of the building reportedly collapsing. thousands inside the temple complex were trapped by flames and rubble. more than 200 of them were hurt, many badly burned, taken away in ambulances. this morning the fire is under control. rescuers having to use bulldozers to search for survivors. prince william and duchess kate are in mumbai honoring the victims of the 2008 terrorist attacks. they released a statement about the fire, saying they were saddened by it and that their thoughts were with the rescuers. as you mentioned, sheinelle, at least a hundred people believed dead and suspected missing this morning. >> kelly cobiella, thank you. another win for bernie sanders. sanders won the democratic caucus in wyoming. both he and senator clinton will each pick up seven delegates from that state. it means even more momentum for sanders with new york's primary now just nine days away.
6:07 am
we have full coverage this morning. let's start with nbc's kelly o'donnell, covering the democrats. kelly where good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. bernie sanders had been expected to do well in the wyoming caucus, and he did, winning the wyoming caucus. that format and the state go along with sanders' strengths. sanders' wife stepped on stage to tell him that he had won wyoming. sanders has won eight out of nine contests. hillary clinton did not campaign in wyoming. she put out a statement congratulating bernie sanders but pointed out she has a delegate lead, a margin her campaign calls insurmountable. today hillary clinton will be
6:08 am
campaigning in baltimore at the business behind me and will be holding a grassroots event, urging supporters to help her campaign in maryland, voting on april 26th. the next big contest is new york, a week from tuesday. and that is a must-win for clinton. of course there still has been tension between these two campaigns, with disputes over how much to raise the minimum wage, and sanders calling on bill clinton to apologize after he had a verbal back and forth with a black lives matter protester. >> kelly o'donnell for us this morning in maryland, kelly, thank you. to the republicans, ted cruz claims another victory, this time in colorado. nbc's jacob rascon is in new york with more on that. >> reporter: good morning. ted cruz may be a distant third here in new york, but last night his experienced ground game proved its worth. he swept all 34 delegates in
6:09 am
colorado, plus others from virginia and iowa. it has never been more clear that donald trump's ground team is right now ready for a floor fight. this as john kasich hopes to be a spoiler in new york, spending time with the candidates with increasingly massive crowds, more than 3,000 people here in rochester at his latest rally. trump left trump tower for a private tour of the 9/11 memori memorial. later today he will be out here for a rally. his team wants to avoid an open convention. that would depend largely on a big win in trump's home state. sheinelle? >> jacob rascon, thanks. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press." good morning to you. >> good morning. >> chuck, the math obviously still on hillary clinton's side but let's talk about the optics
6:10 am
for a second. she's now dropped seven in a row. how big of a problem are the optics for her at this point? >> well, i think it only becomes a problem if she loses in a state that she shouldn't lose in. that's the definition of new york state. what happened yesterday in wyoming, talk about sort of the nomination fight in a nut shell for bernie sanders. he wins yet somehow doesn't pick up any ground on the delegate front. that's been the frustration that i think bernie sanders has run into. he's had this run, but this run has done nothing to stop clinton's path to the nomination. beating her in new york is a different story. that's what it's going to take to make this momentum a reality. >> what about donald trump shaking up his campaign, putting a veteran political strategist, paul manafort. what does this mean for trump's
6:11 am
state of mind? >> it's an acknowledgement that he can see this thing being taken away. you have to win the votes but then you have to make sure you have the right people that become delegates to the convention. frankly it's becoming a saturday tradition here, ted cruz out-organizing trump at a state convention. this weekend it was colorado springs in colorado. the weekend before, it was in north dakota. that's what they had to stop, and that's what trump had to do, bring in somebody with a little more experience at playing hardball. >> clubbinghuck, i know you've "the boston globe," deportations to begin, this is of course what they say happen if donald trump wins. does that move the needle at all in new york or anywhere else?
6:12 am
>> i don't think it does. i'm surprised "the globe" went that far, that's something you would expect from "the onion," from a partisan magazine or something like that, a very surprising move. again, that's something that could actually turn people off more than maybe what was initially intended by the editorial board. >> chuck, thank you. we'll look for more this morning when senator bernie sanders joins you on "meet the press." a big day for golfers at the masters tournament. today the final round. last year's winner, jordan spieth, trying to maintain his lead, but he's just barely hanging on. our resident golfer dylan dreyer is following the action. >> meteorologist and golf. i like it, i'm not complaining. those high winds were back on saturday, torturing players at augusta. that included rory mcilroy, who started play on saturday right behind spieth, but ended it much farther away. >> welcome to the masters. >> reporter: rory mcilroy started the day just one shot
6:13 am
behind leader jordan spieth. but things got ugly early. mcilroy has won three of golf's major championships. but on saturday, chasing the elusive masters, he couldn't stay out of trouble. hitting out of the woods and into the water. >> no spring in the step now. >> reporter: spieth also had ups and downs, but managed to make shots when he needed them. this shot slipped past the trees by inches. for the third day in a row, strong 20-mile-per-hour winds swept the court, blowing billy horschel's ball down the green and into the water. there were pleasant surprises too. world number one, jason day, sank this incredible birdie putt on 14. he's on even par for the tournament and a threat to win it all today. rookie smylie kaufman finished the day at 2 under, one shot back of spieth, the master
6:14 am
rookie having a great week. the two have known each other since junior golf. and a sentimental favorite, bernhard langer, also hot on the trail, two shots behind. at 58, he would be the oldest man to win the masters by 12 years. but in today's final round, they're all chasing spieth, who could be caught. spieth dropped three strokes on the final two holes saturday, hanging on to a one-stroke lead. >> all of a sudden now it's anyone's game. it's tough to swallow that. >> some good news for golfers today, if they're watching. the wind isn't going to be as much of a factor today as it has been the last two days. and the speed of the green, the u.s. winds, like the british open. it's a mix of everything. >> spieth has led every round since he turned 21 at augusta, interesting to see if he's got what it takes to hold on. thank you. in norew orleans, an incide
6:15 am
of road rage has taken the live of a pro bowl player. reports indicate that after words were exchanged, the other driver opened fire, killing smith and wounding his wife. the alleged shooter is in police custody. smith was part of the saints organization for more than a decade, playing on the team that won the 2010 super bowl. lawyers for former speaker of the house dennis hastert say their client acknowledges his past transgressions. it offers earnest apologies to his former students for the harm his actions caused. he's awaiting sentencing on charges prosecutors say stem from sexual abuse that took place when he was a high school wrestling coach. secretary of state john kerry the highest ranking american official to visit hereby hiroshima since world war ii.
6:16 am
john f. kennedy's grandson is often seen at his mother's side and is interested in his family's tradition of public service. dylan dreyer is back. we continue to talk about the winter that won't go away. >> yes, ohio saw a lot of snow yesterday, about 5 to 10 inches of snow in ohio. look at that, a winter wonderland on april 9th. guess what, it's snowing in ohio again. we are going to see not as much as we saw yesterday but we are still going to see still a bit of a mess this morning, through western ohio, that will move through eastern ohio shortly. most of michigan is where we'll see an additional 1 to 3 inches with isolated higher amounts. the cold is still in place across the northeast. we'll start to turn the corner. this morning we're only in the 20s and 30s, very much below average. this afternoon we're staying below average. we'll get closer to 60 degrees as we get into tomorrow. it good sunday morning.

6:18 am
forgiving. >> reporter: catholics have had a lot to digest. in the document released on friday pope francis called for greater acceptance of modern families when it comes to issues like divorce, remarriage, and same-sex marriage. even though one in four catholics are divorced, the church continues to exclude them from communion. the pope says they should be made to feel part of the church. >> he's trying to get catholics back in the church. >> reporter: pope francis also continued to reject same-sex marriage but said gay catholics should be welcomed with respect and dignity. but is that enough? what did you think about that? >> i thought it's the right direction but he needs to take it further. >> everyone should be able to get communion if they want it. >> reporter: six in ten
6:19 am
catholics say the church should allow people who are divorced to take commitment and should accept same-sex marriage. but some say the pope can only go so far. >> the pope doesn't make up the teaching of the catholic church. the pope is the custodian of the teaching of the catholic church. >> reporter: still, with sagging church membership, some hope that those who didn't feel accepted before will now come back to the altar. >> more than half of americans raised catholic have left the church at some point in their lives and some say this more accepting stance, even if a small step, means a lot and could affect church policy in years to come. up next, "saturday night live's" latest crack at political humor. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness.
