I'm Audie Cornish. Thailand's military declared martial law at 3 o'clock this morning local time. The army moves swiftly to consolidate power in what it says is a bid to end the country's political impasse. It also shut down some broadcasters and warned other media against news that might affect national stability. Michael Sullivan has more from Bangkok.
Worldwide temperatures were once again above normal last month, tying the record for the hottest April set back in 2010.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Tuesday said the average global temperature for land and sea was 56.7 degrees Fahrenheit, which is 1.39 degrees warmer than the 20th century average.
"The last below-average April was April 1976, and the last average or below-average temperature for any month was February 1985," according to NOAA.
