Trump locks up nomination, Sanders upsets Clinton in Indiana

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump won Indiana's primary on Tuesday with 53.3 percent of the vote, paving the way for him to become the party's nominee. Sen. Ted Cruz, who took 36.6 percent, announced his withdrawal from the race after the initial results were announced.
Meanwhile, in the state's Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton, who had been considered almost certainly to be her party's nominee, suffered a surprising defeat to Bernie Sanders, who was backed by 52.5 percent of the voters. Clinton, who has been strongly criticized recently for looking tired and showing a lack of enthusiasm in her campaign, will now need to make far-reaching changes in her strategy. She received 47.5 percent of the vote.
