The world this week-Politics
Donald Trump won all five primaries this week, taking over 50% of the vote in all of them. The victories extended his lead in the Republican presidential-nomination race. If he wins by those margins in the remaining contests he should secure enough delegates to avoid a contested convention. On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton won four of the five states on offer, putting her within touching distance of the delegates she needs to clinch her party's nomination.
本周的初选中，唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)赢得全部五场竞选，所得选票过半，其在共和党总统候选人的领先地位得到进一步巩固。如果在接下来的竞选中特朗普要凭借这些优势获胜，那么他需要有足够多的代表席位来避免竞争大会程序的发生。民主党方面，希拉里·克林顿(Hillary Clinton)在参选的五个州内赢得了四个州的支持，这使得希拉里所得票数非常接近赢得民主党总统候选人所需要的票数。

An international commission investigating the disappearance of 43 student teachers in Mexico in 2014 said there was little evidence to support the government's claim that their bodies had been burned after they were kidnapped and murdered by local police acting in league with a drug gang.

The families of 96 Liverpool football fans crushed to death at Sheffield's Hillsborough stadium in April 1989 said they had at last secured justice when an inquest jury found that the victims were unlawfully killed. Mistakes made by the police and ambulance service “caused or contributed” to the tragedy. The ruling exonerated Liverpool's supporters from any blame, reversing the findings from an official inquiry in 1990-91. The jury was shown footage of a similar incident in 1981 at the stadium that had caused serious injuries but no deaths.
