7:02 pm
kathmandu's hospitals are overwhelmed again, and no one wants to be inside of a building when what follows are half a dozen aftershocks within minutes. a man was running an orphanage filled with children. >> i tried to jump out of the building and i got hurt. and my children were all crying and scared here and there. >> this is one of the land slides caused by the aftershock marry near the north of the country, an area that had been previously cleared after previous landslides, and remarkably, no one was hurt. parliament was in session. and after a few seconds of disbelief, they started running from the chamber. outside, panic with people trying to get on their cellphones to relatives and friends to tell them they're alive. >> we were shake being, and everyone started running. this place is dangerous and we have to leave. >> people have become scared in
7:03 pm
their minds. they don't know how they will live and work. going into a building, you don't know what will happen. >> reporter: search teams found themselves trying to save lives again. dozens of collapsed buildings in the capital alone and many more in the rural areas in kathmandu, near the epicenter. as if one earthquake wasn't enough, this is a home. and this was a 19 story apartment block now totally destroyed. there is a high-level of fear, and in some cases shear terror exists now. many people are fleeing the capital. but they will find little comfort out of the city. aljazeera, kathmandu. >> han unga is the national director of the villages in napal. and he was near the epicenter when the quake struck, and he talks to us about the latest
7:04 pm
quake. >> it's a big challenge. for the people engaged in the relief work, because people never expected it once again. and the government is having a lot of problems with what they were facing, a second earthquake will definitely give us a very bad -- in coming forward in relief work and bringing the people back alive. >> let me ask you specifically, do you work with children? how are the children? >> yeah, the children seems to be very terrified. terrified in the sense that some of the children, they were in the first group and they were in the first group like this and i'm really very terrified. and i don't want to go inside of my home.
7:05 pm
so they're so scared that they it the to avoid the aftermath of the earthquake. it's very very sad for the children. because [ unintelligible ] it is going to make a bad psychological impact on them. >> but as i look at your face, i'm wondering what you're feeling as a relief worker. the stress of the work that you're doing now because i can only say i can see it on your face. >> to be very honest, including me and my colleagues, we have been working for the last 18 days without any education with the children and the mothers, and after this second earthquake, we also -- we are trying to regain our vigor so we can once again go early in the morning tomorrow, and we
7:06 pm
will not give up, and we'll try our best to reunite the children and their families as much as we can. >> what do you need? in terms of supplies and manpower and material? what do you need. >> basically we need friends to help us to take care of the children and their families, and it's more long-term planning for the villages, to look after the children and the families, and once the relief work is over, we will immediately start -- and rebuilding about 300 family houses for the most needy ones, and also planning to build four of the government schools in the different localities. where the school is tragically located, and the number in the
7:07 pm
school is very high. for a lot of this work, we need a lot of support from friends and support from people around the world. for u.s. citizens, we would like to request you contribute your kind contributions to sos for the website. >> thank you so much for staying up and giving us this time and an update on the situation, particularly after this second devastating earthquake to napal. thank you. a helicopter from california's camp pendelton is missing somewhere in the quake stricken region, and eight people were onboard t. including six marines. let's bring in jake. >> reporter: well, tony, this helicopter was carrying relief supplies, harps and rice, the
7:08 pm
squadron 469 as we said from california, and it was part of the 300 or so u.s. troops that have been providing humanitarian assistance to people in napal when it lost radio contact and now the pentagon is hoping that perhaps the helicopter put down in a mountainous area where it simply can't get a radio signal out. but right now they're hoping for the best, and a search is going to be underway soon. >> i was going to ask you a couple of questions here. what do we know about this? what more can we know about the missing helicopter and the latest search efforts? >> this is a vietnam huey helicopter uh-1, it's a light utility helicopter, and it has been used since the vietnam war. aid very sturdy helicopter, but
7:09 pm
apparently a nearby helicopter from india might have heard that it was having trouble with its fuel line. because there was no distress signal and no sign of a crash they hope that it put down in an area. there was a search launched right away. three of the u.s. osprey helicopter three of the planes went out and conducted a search last night. they stopped when it got dark, and now it's just about to be light again in napal. and the search effort will get underway this morning again with the b52s scouring the area, and in addition, the nepalese going to where the helicopter was supposed to be going next to see if they can locate it on the ground. so there's hope that maybe this is a case where the helicopter
7:10 pm
put down for contact. and the worst-case scenario is that it crashed in the mountains. >> jamie, thank you. so within the past couple of hours, there has also been a powerful earthquake in northern japan. a magnitude 6.8 quake struck 75 miles east of norioca. no tsunami warning has been issued. and it a ceasefire called by saudi arabia is now in effect. the world heritage site in tiese, the houthi rebels used it to carry out smelling on the city. more from the saudi capital ofria.
7:11 pm
they don't know if it's to regroup or send reinforcements to the southern city with promised swift retaliation. but the truce offers a window to send supplies to those effected by the conflict. we're talking about millions of people either forced to leave their houses or displaced or forced to leave the country. the problem that international aid agencies are facing at this particular moment is the concern for the potential for sporadic clashes between the two factions across the country. they want to move the northern province to help people. you were talking about millions of people who have no access to
7:12 pm
drinking water medicine, fuel, basic commodities. looking forward to immediate supplies in yemen. >> a british audio forensics company has confirmed that leaked records from the egyptian president are genuine. in the records sisi dismissed -- >> reporter: abdeldismissed -- sisi was elected president after a a coup. and he has tried to keep it afloat. in february, broadcast conversations between sisi and some of his generals, and their records have been authenticated
7:13 pm
by experts. sisi is heard making sarcastic remarks about gulf countries suggesting that saudi arabia, united arab emreduction and kuwait have more money than they it need. and egypt should have a share and he talked about having money transferred into the accounts of the military and not the government. >> listen, tell them we need ten deposited into the army's account, when i win the election, we will invest the money into the state and another ten from ameris, and another from kuwait. and we need to get it settled in 2014. why are you laughing?
7:14 pm
their money is like rice. >> it the gulf countries have given egypt billions of dollars in aid. [ audio difficulties ] was the first to announce an aid package offering $5 million in bank deposits, and oil profits and cash, and that was followed by a $3 billion package from the aie and $4 billion from a kuwait. it has a negative impact from the uae nations and gulf nations. >> it's seen as an embarrassment from what happened in yemen at the moment. and it suggests that there are deep divisions within the highest level of sisi's government. >> syrian activists say at least 15 people were killed in a barrel bomb attack in aleppo. they attacked the bus depot in
7:15 pm
a rebel-held neighborhood. and the government has been using the crude devices as part of an opposition. amnesty international said that more than 3,000 people were killed in barrel bomb attacks in aleppo last year. me are asking asian countries to locate and rescue hundreds of migrants stranded at sea. they have refused to offer them refuge. hundreds offered them refuge after thailand began cracking down on smugglers. >> we're on patrol with the maritime agency off of the coast. and the job of this agency is to monitor and protect the waters around malaysia, so they patrol and look for illegal fishermen and for people smuggling goods and humans. now, their job has become incredibly important after the
7:16 pm
arrival of more than 1,000 migrants from myanmar and bangladesh this week. sir, in your experience, you've been with the agency for technical years and you're seeing more and more people coming to malaysia by sea. and are you concerned about this? >> yes especially they are coming and myanmar you see more people coming >> so we're getting reports from indonesia that the authorities over there are saying that if they see any more boats bringing muslims coming into their waters, they will give them food and fuel and send them in malaysia's direction. what is your response to this? >> we have to consider, actually we cannot allow them to enter but we will send them
7:17 pm
on their way. >> so the maritime agency here is on alert for more arrivals. they have asked for reinforcements of three more vessels, and they will be amping up their patrols in malaysia. >> a huge setback for the white house on trade. senate democrats blocked efforts to move forward with legislation, that would give the president fast track trade promotion authority. the pretty is trying to move this quickly as part of his asia policy. but libby casey this may not be fatal but it's certainly a setback for the president. >> reporter: that's right, tony. it was because this ability to fast track a trade deal has to get through congress. this was it's first test going before the full senate. and it couldn't even get past this procedural vote. it needed 60, and it only got
7:18 pm
52. and politics makes for strange friends because it was republicans pushing it forward. some democrats are flat-out against what this would ultimately lead to, a trade deal with asia over job concerns and things like that. others didn't like the way that it was being handled today. and republicans pushed back, including senator simmons of santo domingo. >> essentially, what the democrats are trying to do today, trying to block us from getting onto the legislation is throwing their own president under the bus. >> the white house downplayed this josh earnest calling it a procedural snafu and in fact, he used the word snafu over ten times, but it doesn't look good, and at this point it is going to stake agreement to bring it forward to the senate again. >> well, libby why aren't democrats back being the
7:19 pm
president on this? >> you know, there are a handful who are flat-out against these trade deals over concerns for american workers but what happened today is that the testimonies democrats want this bill paired with other legislation that they say would protect workers hurt by globalization, and today deal with the currency manipulations, the tart is china, and they want to work on a future trade deal with africa which include things like child labor laws. they want to to all come to the senate together. but republicans wouldn't. they are afraid if they don't get what they want, they ultimately will not because they're not in control of the house or senate. here's chuck schumer today. >> passing a trade agenda without passing protections would mean that american workers are left to dry. the customs bill contains provisions to combat child labor, and those would be left
7:20 pm
out. to help strengthen the steel and solo industries in terms of enforcement, one the key watch words of this bill, those would be left out. >> now, president obama is still trying to make his case to crucial democrats trying to get them to support the trade deals generally, but specifically to encourage them to find the way to broker something with republicans so they can at least move forward tony. >> libby, thank you. high-level talks in sochi. johnjohn kerry meets with vladimir putin. and why verizon is shelling out $4.4 billion to buy aol.
7:21 pm
7:22 pm
>> aol that's the company that brought the internet to millions of americans for the very first time, it's changing it's stripes again. ali velshi brings it to us. >> reporter: you remember,
7:23 pm
you and i both worked for this company at one time. and after a certain age nobody understands anymore. verizon communications sees a lot of value in it, it's buying aol out right for $4 billion. the nation's biggest phone company is paying cash 17% above aol's stock value on monday. it has transformed itself into a big player in technology, used to buy and sell online advertising. part of it is aol's so-called platform. it allows them to use ad face electronically and not using humans, and they help to deliver high quality web video. this is important tony, because verizon is set to launch it's own video service based on mobile devices this summer. and a lot of media advisers
7:24 pm
with 5.6 million households in the u.s. that's part of what verizon is interested in in the new aol. very different from when we worked for time warner and very different from where people first got their internet from. >> this is quite the transformation for aol isn't it? >> a lot of the credit goes to armstrong, the former google executive back in 2009. not a lot of people had a lot of hope for aol. he built a lot of stable content. and he invested heavily in technology and took over the company. and started out as in dial-up assertion but he was involved in one of the largest and most disaster russ corporate mergers ever with time-warner. aol said to have dial-up subscribers, and it was a
7:25 pm
$100 million merger with time-warner in 2000, but it quickly disappeared after the dot-com bust. >> ali, this is more consolidation in the media space, and it crowds out the voices and loses diversity and what's your take on that? >> sure, because a lot of the sites that tim armstrong and aol acquired, they used to be small scrappy independent sites, and they end up with resources and not scrappers. the good news, it's not scrapping the signals, so it's not a comcast and time-warner merger, where the company that you pay is consolidating but the consolidation of content to major, major companies does give some people paws. >> what else are you working on for the program document? >> well, we have great conversation with pakistan, and the article that pakistan held
7:26 pm
osama bin laden as sort of a prisoner since 2016. and i'm going to talk to the former held of pakistani intelligence, about how plausible that scenario is. >> and be sure to catch ali velshi, his new program. 10:30 eastern and 7:30 pacific here on aljazeera. greece made another huge payment today on its debt to the international monetary fund. but the nation had to admit that it had to dip into its emergency fund for the cash. they're under more than pressure now to find a way out of their financial troubles [ chanting ] >> it was victory for hundreds of ladies. on monday, they got their jobs back. they made good on the promise to hire back thousands of state employees. it's one of the many issues
7:27 pm
that it divide greece and it's creditors. greeks are still hopeful. >> i agree with the government. nobody h more salary cuts. the question is, can they put the position across? it will be very bad. everything will be belly-up. you won't have more money in your pocket. everything will grind to a halt. >> i think that the government will have to retreat. if it doesn't, there will be no money. it's that simply. europeans negotiating on good faith. it's not our money we're asking for. >> greece wants financial aid to continue to flow. it's economy time is growing short. the government is saying that it's coming closer to a deal. but it can only continue to pay salaries and debt consolidation to the end of the month. >> we saw that what was at the
7:28 pm
essence was established in public the great strides that have been achieved to maintain a good climate in order to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, and before constraints become binding. >> greece's tax records are falling. it was only able to pay a $750 million installment to the inf on tuesday by using an account in reserve. >> the government is using the hard won money over the last two years. and this year, $1.3 million, half of what it was a year ago. ceasar hoped to raise $3 billion by getting companies to lend it the deposits. burr it has only made a quarter of that because many mayors have refused to comply. and households, people have
7:29 pm
pulled $40 billion from their bank accounts since the january election. all of this suggests that the people's faith and authority are turning from the government. >> and coming up next on the program, more women come forward claiming a st. louis hospital lied to them about their newborns dying. and plus, a decision. in the march police shooting death, still nothing yet in the investigation of a police killing in washington state three months ago.
7:30 pm
7:31 pm
>> it was the highest level meeting between the united states and russia after the start of the crisis in ukraine today. secretary of state john kerry met with his russian counterpart and president vladimir putin in sochi. >> president obama like most western leaders shuns russia's
7:32 pm
victory day celebrations last weekend, so this was the u.s. government's opportunity to honor russia's role in defeating the gnats he's. about you first the meeting with foreign minister, sergei lovelavrov and then vladimir putin. a long list of talking points, and it's a sign of how poor the russian relations are just talking was the trip's main goal. >> this was an important visit at an important time. and we didn't come here with an expectation that we were going to define a specific path forward with respect to one crisis or another with a major break through. but we came here purposely to have a very full and open dialogue with russia's leaders. >> reporter: it seemed that ukraine's elusive piece was the
7:33 pm
lion's share of the discussion, and the u.s. made it clear that normal relations depend on finding it. >> if and when it's fully implemented, it's clear that the u.s. and eu sanctions can begin to be rolled back. >> putin left without speaking to the press. his foreign minister was tasked with articulating russia's position. >> one of the key issues of discussions was the crisis in ukraine. there were certain contradictions to the origins and the way it's developing, but we share the view that it's only possible to resolve the issue with a comprehensive understanding of the issue. considerable progress is being made with a nuclear deal with iran and it's an indication of what can be achieved when the u.s. and russian interests align. that's a bright star in a
7:34 pm
pretty dark sky. and despite agreeing, they have so much more than what divides them. so much more than the diplomatic gifts changed here. afternoon album, and a briefcase, and some potatoes, tomato owes, and a patrotic t-shirt for john kerry. >> a prompt of international affairs at the school, and she's of course the granddaughter of sov yet leader nikita khrushchev. good to see you. so the highest level visit to russia in two years and what's really the purpose? nice eties aside. and all of the diplomatics aside, what were these two leaders and these two nations saying to one another at this point? >> well, they said it point-blank that the nations need to talk, and the frozen
7:35 pm
relationship is not working because the world has a lot of problems, and what putin is saying i'm not your worst problem, so you'll have syria to talk about and we have iran to talk about. and you have and they're saying you're blaming me and i'm blaming you and let's find common ground for of the future. >> so nina, if you're going toward -- if we're at odds and we were trying to figure out our relationship, we have to find a place to have common ground. so where do you think that they can come together to find common ground to start to improve this relationship? maybe in yemen? >> well, it could be yemen because all should be treated the same way, and you cannot bomb one nation, and then discourage another nation from protecting it's territory, or
7:36 pm
it's influence, so what putin is saying, is that all rules apply to everybody. i think that iran is a common ground certainly because as you know, russia finally lifted the ban on selling their defensive weaponry to iran, and supposedly, they were discussing that. but this is something that americans don't want, and russians say we may have a ban there, but we need to have some give and tick in our relationship. >> so that was a big issue a couple of weeks ago and it seems barely in the media. do you think that it was being discussed? >> they said it was it discussed. and it may have been discussed been the foreign ministers we don't know that, and it could be one of those wink winks exactly. because this is very important in this kind of thing. if you sit in a meeting or you sit and share a conversation,
7:37 pm
after two years of almost no conversation, i think that in itself is a very important step. >> so boris his report of over 220 russian soldiers killed while fighting in ukraine. will that report -- will that be brought up in a context in any broader discussion about ukraine and eastern ukraine? >> well, i think that it should be brought into the discussion, but i don't know whether it would be brought or if it's that important to putin. he can only dismiss it as a report made by an opposition leader who doesn't have russian interests in mind. and that now translates into putin's interests. so he can always spin it any way he can but the report is important to people like you and me saying now we know the truth. so putin can decide if he's
7:38 pm
going to take this report as a point of criticism and mend the relationship with the west. or he can say it's all enemy provocation. it seems like he wants to go to the west right now. >> okay. so really. so nina -- >> but he's meeting with kerry. >> right. and there's all of this back and forth. and as the backdrop for all of this, if these relationships are going to improve at all, you know, there's this name calling and back and forth, and there's this, i'll stick you and you stick me. and the heart of it seems to be this complaint from russia. the united states is treating us like the weak sister. you have to talk to us. and treat us like an equal partner on the world stage. >> that's what putin is saying, he has been saying it all along, when the united states, they acted as a victor, but actually wanted to weaken the former super power. >> to western ears, it sounds
7:39 pm
like whining. >> well, it could sound like whining, but i also -- >> is there something to it? >> being a russian in america in the 1990s, i can tell you that's not a pleasant feeling. i've been reminded every day you are the former -- and we're the ones that won the cold war and i hope i'm one of those adult people you can get over it and make jokes about it and make fun of your opponent or conversation, saying you are influenced either or make a joke about t putin doesn't because one of the problems with being as large as russia, it doesn't grow up. big countries have to collapse in order to grow up and figure themselves out. because russia has the largest superior complex and largest inferiority complex. and i think that putin is a great represent of it. he's the leader of a very big
7:40 pm
and important nation, but a also a man of short stature. >> at 5-6, you had to get that in. >> his character he's whiney, his behavior, a lot of it in that. >> we appreciate it. you're great. always a pleasure. >> protesters are out on the streets of madison wisconsin hours after the prosecutors said that they would not file charges against a white police officer who shot and will killed an unarmed by biracial man. hundreds chanting. at the are saying that matt kenny shot tony robinson and kenny says that he shot him after robinson attacked him. >> my decision will not bring robinson back, and it will not end the racial disparities that exist in the justice system.
7:41 pm
in our justice system. my decision is not based on emotion. rather this decision is based on the facts as they have been investigated and reported to me. >> the district attorney urged people to remain calm. robinson's mother said that she was not surprised by the decision. it has been more than three months since a migrant in washington state was shot and killed bill the police. the man had been throwing rocks at the officers. and an exhaustive investigation was back in february. adam schaffler halls the story live in washington d.c. >> reporter: dave and tony, it was february 10th when three pasco police officers, a city in eastern washington, were involved in shooting antonio, a mexican farm worker,
7:42 pm
and there was been periodic demonstrations and many people hitting the streets and protests, and things have been mostly calm. we have seen a total of seven arrests on minor charges in those three months. but there's frustration over the shooting and the legal process, especially for people seeing similar situations involving the police in other places around the country where charges have come fairly quickly. we had the chance to ask the prosecutor, what's taking so long? and we have heard from activists wondering now if they have to move beyond peaceful demonstrations. >> you know, i can't say that on camera. but is that what we need to do to get the attention? because -- well, it's obvious around the country, they have step under and said and did that very thing. and they got attention immediately. >> was that justified? or was this an unjustified
7:43 pm
shooting? they need to be held accountable and held to a high standard. and that's what the public requires that's what i've always expected. >> reporter: so the prosecutor is now waiting for a final report from the special investigative unit. and that could come within a couple of weeks and charges could come shortly after that. and then they might not. the prosecutor could wait until an inquest that has been called is finished, and we could be well into the middle of summer before we have resolution in pasco in eastern washington. tony? >> there have been several autopsies in this case, and has that actually complicated things? >> yeah, it appears it might be. there are actually three different autopsies, and the prosecutor is telling us that he has had trouble and the investigative unit have had trouble in the last two autopsies. but in the last phonecalls, we have had trouble in the autopsies, and the second and third autopsy that they haven't
7:44 pm
finished things yet. so if we can get done with a couple of phonecalls, we imagine they can too. >> allen, thank you. and there's a new legal development in rolling stone's magazine's retracted story about a rape in virginia. suing the magazine for defamation. nicole said that the article cast her as the chief villan and made her seem indifferent. the lawsuit seeks half a million dollars in damage. and another story we have been following. st. louis police investigating allegations that newborns were stolen from their mothers and sold for adoption. more than 140 black women are asking whether their babies really did die. one mother has already been reunited with her daughter after 49 years. we spoke with her attorney, andrew watt watkins, who is hearing from other women asking for
7:45 pm
help. >> there's a great deal in terms of ages, and most of them were 15, 16, 17, 18 years of age at the time that they gave birth. they were all african-american, all of extraordinary early humble means, and all of them presented to the hospital alone. and not one of them was advised of the passing of their child by a doctor, which was the protocol as per the policy of the hospital, and the standard of care in the medical industry at the time. they were all notified by a nurse. >> watkins says that he's getting calls from people who were adopted and believe they may have been stolen. president obama's presidential library is headed to his hometown of chicago. the barack obama foundation announced the decision of the video released this morning. the university of chicago's bid to host the library long considered a favorite.
7:46 pm
the president and the first lady both worked at the university and owned a home nearby. the 20062006gop race is crowded. a dozen are considering a run. >> in the easterly voting nomination states of iowa and new hampshire, it's easy to find republican presidential candidates. and never mind these six who have formally declared. five more are expected to jump in soon. all of the republicans share a few things in common. their rhetoric about president obama has been harsh. >> this president is the single worst negotiator we have had in the white house in my lifetime. >> and they have shown a deep dispain for hilliary clinton. >> i'm getting ready to do something too. i'm running for president. >> our founders never intended us to have a professional political class. >> the major republican candidates though are trying to
7:47 pm
set themselves apart from each other. kentucky senator, rand paul, is a libertarian who wants to end the war on marijuana. >> and for making the penalties of less severe. >> unlike most republican candidates, former arkansas governor, mike huckabee is defending social security. >> if the congress wants to take away someone's retirement, let them end their own congressional pensions, and not your social security. >> texas freshman senator, ted cruz, believes in limited executive power. >> on the first day i intend to rescind every illegal and unconstitutional executive action that president obama put into place. >> and freshman senator, marco rubio, 43, the youngest in the field and the son of immigrants and hewlett-packard ceo, the only woman, and carson, who has never run for

7:49 pm
as evidenced last fall by a heckler. >> summit down and shut up! >> as the field grows, it has been fueled in part by president obama's own trajectory eight years ago. he proved that a politician in this era even with limited experience can still catch lightning in a bottle. and even a losing campaign can generate limited exposure. david schuster, aljazeera. >> and stay tuned for more tonight, with presidential candidates at 8:30 eastern time. ment u.s. takes another huge step in normalizing relations with cuba. they sent ambassadors to each other's countries. president obama announced that he will remove the 45 wait
