this morning. ben, what do we know about this man and the investigation into his death this morning? >> reporter: this man is something of a mystery. we know that he was picked up in late august in the northern sinai after a car bomb went off and egyptian security services were sweeping the area. now according to egyptian official, they found in his possession a computer, nothing odd about that, but what they called maps of violates installations and given the charged atmosphere in egypt at the moment, the anti-american atmosphere here, it appears that he was suspected of being a spy. now he was held in a prison cell six weeks until yesterday when a guard at this prison in the town of islile on the sue wz canal
1:07 am
found him hanging from his shoelaces. they say it is an parent suicide. the egyptian public prosecutor in that city has ordered an autopsy to determine the cause of death. >> ben, have we heard from his family at all? >> reporter: well, we understand that the american authorities have been in touch with his family but they apparently had some difficulty contacting the family in the hours after they found out about his apparent suicide. we don't know much about this man. there are some reports he is a retired military officer, that he came to egypt from bahrain and that he was on his way to the gaza trip. for what purpose, we simply don't know. so it's a mystery. lots of questions and not a lot of answers. >> ben wedeman live for us, thank you very much. 7 minutes after the hour. pounding rains leading to a

1:22 am
1:23 am
1:24 am
welcome back. urgent calls this morning for whoever kidnapped seven red cross aide workers in syria. those calls are to set these workers free immediately. the team was in a province near elapo when armed gunmen opened fire and abducted them. the group was there to deliver medical supplies.
1:25 am
mohammed jamjoom is monitoring this from bbeirut. what is the latest? >> reporter: this is a worg development now. we heard from the red cross. they stated they are not going to release the nationality its of these workers yet, but we are told they had been in italy province since october 10th and they were out in the field trying to deliver medical supplies and they were actually coming back to damascus, that's when they were kidnap. the u.n. and red cross want these people relieved as quickly as possible. these are six members of the aide organization that is a part of the red cross and one volunteer for the syrian read crescent. this took place in an area of syria that has been controlled by rebels the past year, and an area where kidnappings and killings have been quite common. the syrian government believe that armed terrorists are responsible for the kidnapping.
1:26 am
armed terrorists is the watch-all terminology that syria uses when they are referring to syrian rebels. >> around iraq there was a debate on whether these were armed bandits or thieves doing the kidnapping or the rebel or terror groups or the organizations behind it. there have been warnings that syria is getting very dangerous for aid workers. what is the chance that the red cross will pull up stakes and get out? >> reporter: that's a very good question and very good point that you're making, john. there has been this debate going on for months now by several aid organizations in syria that are stating, look. we are trying to open corridors and we are doing our best to deliver aid in a country where a civil war is raging out of control. they do not have the guarantees from the syrian government, nor will they get them, that their
1:27 am
workers can be protected, so there are agencies that have questioned whether or not they should close up shop. they don't want to. they want to continue to get aid to this population that has really been devastated bit civil war but if this continues and if aid workers continue to be killed and continue to be kidnapped at this rate, you might see very prominent aid organizations shutting down their operations or at least limiting their operations. nobody wants to see that happen but, again, in this continues like it's continuing and if you have developments like what happened yesterday, with seven aid workers being kidnapped, that is going to be very dangerous and very worrying for these organizations that are continuing to operate in syria. >> it is worrying, indeed. because these organizations are crucial to moving forward whatever piece chances there are in syria between the weapons inspectors and everything else and it's awful to see when aid workers come under fire or in harm's way. mohammed jamjoom, thank you.

1:33 am
permission to borrow the money necessary to pay all of its bills. if it does not happen, experts say it would mean economic catastrophe. now the leaders are trying to work out their own deal to try and force the house's hand. >> i think there's a view in the senate that we have to take over, that the house will get nothing done, but hopefully, if we can pass something with a broad bipartisan majority that the house will then act. >> we offered 13 compromises this week to open the government. the democrats have rejected each one of them. to me there is a big picture problem. we have the 17 trillion debt and we are borrowing more than a million dollars every minute so we do have to address that. >> one apparent sticking point is the question of spending. all this as the deadline for dealing with this grows closer
1:34 am
and closer. anger over the government shutdown is boiling over at the world war ii memorial in washington where tea party backers faced off with police there and the white house. the memorial is officially closed though the park service says it will not stop veterans who want to visit. they want to send a message picking up the barriers and dumping them in front of the executive mansion. >> why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?

1:37 am
makes his uphill battle that much steeper because of identity of a tea party conservative. >> reporter: his and his campaign's views on mayor booker seem to be getting all of the attention. lonegan fired a top adviser after that person gave a interview with a twitter exchange with a stripper. saying the following. >> i have hundreds of activists, volunteers, donors, people on this campaign and i can't be responsible for what all say but i will take responsibly so i terminated the gentleman for his inappropriate conduct. >> reporter: after booker addressed questions whether he was gay saying, what does it matter if i am? lonegan weighed in during an august interview. then there was the comment he made during last week's debate where taxpayers money from the suburbs and rural areas goes.
