At least four Americans are dead after a series of Sri Lanka bombings on Easter Sunday. Now the Sri Lankan government is admitting that it failed to act on multiple warnings before the series of coordinated bombings. The country's government said a radical Muslim group was responsible for six suicide bombings at Christian churches and luxury hotels that has killed nearly 300 people.        Six people are now confirmed dead following a plane crash in South Central Texas. The Kerr County Sheriff's Office says the aircraft went down this morning in a ravine just outside of Kerrville. The NTSB says the plane was trying to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport when it hit the ground. No word on who was on the plane. Kerrville is an hour west of San Antonio.       Democrat Elijah Cummings says the Trump Organization is using a "baseless lawsuit" to block his request for financial documents. Cummings released a statement today saying there "is no valid legal basis to interfere with this duly authorized subpoena from Congress." Cummings claims the White House has refused to produce a single document or witness to the House Oversight Committee this year.        Jury selection is underway in the trial of a Brooklyn sex cult trial. Keith Raniere [[ ruh-NEER-ee ]], the leader of NXIVM [[ NEX-ee-um ]], is accused of exploiting, branding and starving young women whom he allegedly kept as sex slaves in upstate New York. "Smallville" actress Allison Mack has pleaded guilty to luring the women.       The Fordham University student who died in a tragic fall at the school's clock tower is being buried in New York today. Twenty-two-year-old Sydney Monfries was killed on April 14th, just weeks from graduation, after plunging through a hole in a stairway landing. The clock tower is off limits, but some students say it's been a rite of passage for years for graduating seniors to climb it.        Ukraine has elected a comedian as the new President. Volodymyr Zelenskiy [[ VOLL-ah-duh-meer ZUH-linn-skee ]] won in a landslide over his opponent. Zelenskiy starred in a TV series, "Servant of the People," in which he played a history teacher who is elected president.
