8:02 am
i'm craig melvin. dylan dreyer here as well. >> it's going to warm up soon. >> could have said don't blame me. >> even better. >> i know you were watching yesterday for your boy rory mcilroy to come back. he went all the rails a bit yesterday. >> i think it's the wind. he couldn't really wait out the wind. it's frustrating. you can't blame that totally on the wind. >> any other sport you blame it on the wind it's like a joke. >> we'll get to the masters in just a bit. our top story, the breaking news from belgium where prosecutors have released details from the man in the hat. they now say the bombers were planning to attack france again, but instead struck closer to home. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig, it was the deadliest ever
8:03 am
isis terror cell. we're now learning new details about what it planned 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. the paris attacks killed more than 130 people. but belgian prosecutors said this morning, the isis cell responsible based in belgium had been planning a second hit on france. the arrest of the paris bomber salah abdeslam surprised them and the speed of the investigation rushed them into an attack on belgium. the new information is coming from this man, hunted for months, disguised to kill, the man in the hat wheeling his explosives and now confessing his role. mohamed abrini arrested friday
8:04 am
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 evidence abrini was one of the paris attackers. photographs, dna and fingerprints. but until he talked, his role in brussels was unclear. now he's telling them more. >> brussels is a safer place with abrini in jail. it doesn't mean that there are not many more on the loose. >> reporter: so police are on 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. well, abrini is likely to be questioned again today. no one involved in the investigation either here or in france really believe everyone involved in the gang has been
8:05 am
captured or killed. so there are no celebrations here about the arrests and charges. they're on their guard here. police car just gone past, the sirens still in this city. belgium's prime minister warning people to stay alert and be careful. >> bill, thank you. now to another breaking story in india where at least 100 people are dead after a huge fire broke out at a temple in the middle of a fireworks display. we're in london with more. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. just a devastating scene there, sheinelle. thousands of worshippers were inside the hindu temple in southern india along with stacks of fireworks when a stray spark setoff this. a devastating series of explosions at 3:30 in the morning. white smoke and flames. the explosion so powerful witnesses said chunks of concrete were flying half a mile
8:06 am
through the air. part of the building reportedly collapsing. the thousands inside the temple complex trapped by flames and rubble. more than 200 were hurt. many of them 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 this morning. they released a statement about the fire saying they were saddened by it and that their thoughts were with the rescuers. as you mentioned, at least 100 people believed dead and many more still missing this morning. >> so sad. thank you. to politics now where it is 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. new york's primary now just nine
8:07 am
days away. let's start with kelly o'donnell covering the democrats. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. bernie sanders had expected to do well in the wyoming contest and he did winning the democratic caucus, that format. and the state's makeup of voters, mostly white, is a sanders strength. there were only 14 delegates at stake and hillary clinton got half. bernie sanders was campaigning on long island new york when his wife stepped on the stage to tell him he had won wyoming. he then turned to the crowd and said sanders has won eight out of nine contests. hillary clinton did not campaign in wyoming herself. she put out a statement congratulating sanders but also pointing out that she has a delegate lead of 220 and an advantage in the popular vote of 2.4 million. a margin her campaign calls insurmountable. today, hillary clinton will be campaigning here in baltimore and she'll be holding a
8:08 am
grassroots organizing event to encourage supporters to help her campaign in maryland. maryland is voting on april 26th. the next big contest is new york a week from tuesday. and that is 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. craig? >> kelly o'donnell for us this morning in maryland. to the republicans now where ted cruz claims another victory, this time in colorado. we're in rochester new york with more on that and what this means for both cruz and donald trump. jacob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ted cruz may be a distant third here in new york. last night his experienced ground game proved its worth. it was a knockout for cruz in colorado sweeping all 34 delegates up for grabs there,
8:09 am
plus some others from virginia to iowa. it has never been more clear that donald trump's ground team is right now not ready for a floor fight. this is john kasich hopes to be a spoiler in new york spending more time here than the other candidates with increasingly massive crowds. more than 3,000 people here in rochester at his latest rally. this is the frontrunner after a few days off the campaign trail left trump tower for a different kind of event. the 9/11 memorial. later today, donald trump will be out here in rochester. his first rally since his campaign hit the reset button. his team telling me they still hope to avoid an open convention. that would depend largely on a big, big win here in trump's home state. >> thanks. chuck todd is nbc's political director. good morning to you. >> well, good morning. >> chuck, the math and the map of course obviously still in hillary clinton's side. but let's talk about the optics
8:10 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? >> it only becomes a problem if she loses in a state that she shouldn't lose in. and that's the definition of new york state. i mean, what happened yesterday in wyoming, talk about sort of the nomination fight in a nutshell for bernie sanders, he wins and 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. yes, he's had this run and this run has done nothing to sort of stop clinton's path to the nomination. beating her in new york, well, that's a different story. i think that's what it's going to take to make this momentum a reality. >> let's talk about donald trump shaking up his campaign, putting a veteran political strategist in place. talk to us about what you think this means. what's going on? >> i think it's an acknowledgement that he knows
8:11 am
that he could see this thing being taken away. war number one is going to actually win votes. after you win the votes, you have to make sure you have the right people that become delegates to the convention. frankly, it's now becoming a saturday -- a saturday event and tradition here. ted cruz outorganizing trump at a state convention. this weekend it was colorado springs. 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 a little more experienced at playing hardball. >> i know you've seen this "boston globe," the mother of all anti-endorsement. to editorials like this, one of the headlines, deportations to begin markets sink, this is of course what they say would happen if donald trump wins. does that move the needle at all with voters here in new york or anywhere else? >> i don't think it does and it actually could have a backlash
8:12 am
effect. i'm surprised that the globe went that far. that's something you would expect from "the onion," from perhaps a partisan manage or something like that. that could turn people off more than it -- 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. it is a big day for the golfers at the masters tournament. today, the final round of course. jordan spieth trying to maintain his lead, but he is just barely hanging on. dylan dreyer following all of the action for us. >> meteorologist and golf. those high winds were back on saturday. torturing players at augusta. that included rory mcilroy that ended it much farther away. rory mcilroy started the day
8:13 am
just one shot behind leader jordan spieth. but things got ugly early. mcilroy has won three major golf championships, but on saturday, he couldn't stay out of trouble. hitting out of the woods and into the water. >> no spring in the step now. >> spieth also had ups and downs, but managed to make shots when he needed them. his shot out of the woods on 18 slipped past the trees by inches. strong 20 miles per hour winds swept the course blowing a ball right off the 15th green, down the hill, and into the water. there were pleasant surprises too. jason sunk this incredible putt on birdie 14. he's definitely a threat to win it all today. rookie smiley kaufman finished the day two under, one shot back of spieth.
8:14 am
the two have known each other since junior golf. >> he was really good then. >> and a senty mental favorite also hot on the trail just two shots behind. he'd be the oldest man to win the masters by 12 years. 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 onto a one-stroke lead. >> all of a sudden it's anyone's game. tough to swallow that. >> some good news for golfers today, 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 like the u.s. open. it's a mix of everything. >> spieth has led every round since he turned 21. going to be interesting to see if he has what it takes to hold on. in new orleans, what's described as an incident of road rage has taken the life of a
8:15 am
former pro ball football player. will smith and his wife were driving a car that was rear ended. afterwards, words were exchanged. the other driver opened fire killing smith and wounding his wife. smith was part of the saints organization more than a decade playing on the team that won the 2010 super bowl. they say their client acknowledging his past transgressions. the statement offers his earnest apology to his former students and others affected by the harm his actions have caused. they are awaiting sentencing prosecutors say stem from abuse. john kerry is in hiroshima becoming the highest ranking american official to visit the japanese city since world war ii. on hand for his arrival this morning, ambassador caroline kennedy and her son jack.
8:16 am
he's the only grandson of the president of john f. kennedy. friends say he's very interested in his family's tradition of public service. >> dylan dreyer is back and 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 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. want to talk to you about the cold. we will start to tourn the corner. this morning, we're only in the 20s and 30s. that's very much below average. this afternoon, we're staying below average. comes with rain,

good sunday morning. i'm meteorologist karen thomas. a freeze warning in effect for a couple of more hours until 10:00 this morning. very cold heading outside. bundle up. we're going to be warming up just a bit later on today. we are calling for sun and clouds. breezy conditions. wind out of the west 5 to 10 miles per hour, but warming up to 49 degrees. 52 for a high in some parts of the region. we're looking for sunshine to warm us a little bit. enjoy. hat's your latest forecast. >> all right. thank you. a lot of people heading to church on this sunday. just two days after pope francis released his document on family life called "the joy of love." he action is still pouring in about what it all means. morgan, good morning. >> reporter: many are calling this another progressive move by the pope. some are saying this is really just more of the same. the church policy hasn't changed, the pope is just being a little bit more forgiving. so is the pope really as radical
8:18 am
as he seems? we hit the streets to find out. catholics heading to mass this morning have had a lot to digest over the weekend. in a 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? >> the joy of love, the document, 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 receive communion if they want to. >> reporter: in a survey, six in ten catholics think the church
8:19 am
should allow those who have divorced and remarried without an annulment to take communion. george, a vatican expert says on hot button family topics, 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. some say this more accepting stance by the pope means a lot and could change church policy for generations to come. >> thank you. up next on "today," "saturday night live's" latest "saturday night live's" latest crack at polit the pursuit of h. it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness.
