Bernie Sanders wins Indiana Democratic primary: US networks

Washington, May 4: Senator Bernie Sanders has mounted a come-from-behind victory in Indiana's Democratic primary, denying the former secretary of state a feather in her cap as she seeks their party's presidential nomination.

Sanders, a self-declared democratic socialist, was ahead of Clinton by 53.2 per cent to 46.8 per cent with about three quarters of precincts reporting on Tuesday, although Clinton remained well ahead in the delegate battle for the nomination.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump crushed his Republican rivals in Indiana, US networks projected, bringing him dramatically closer to outright victory in his party's presidential nomination race and dashing the hopes of a movement bent on stopping him.

Both Trump and Clinton were hoping Indiana would put them one step closer to locking up the White House nominations -- and their likely November showdown.
