the past two weeks he's been involved in a rollout of the state of the union that will include domestic policy initiatives including community college free for all in this country. expanding paid sick leave, universal broadband internet access and on and on. also what we don't know is what the president's going to say on foreign policy. he's got a controversy with his own party right now about whether to pass hear it sanctions for iran. some democrats want to do that. he says no, wait. we don't know what he's going to say about the terror events in europe that have occurred. as he stands before congress he's going to be standing before a republican party that is quite divided. you've got the republican leadership wanting to prove that they can govern from capitol hill because they do control the congress. you've got a handful of presidential candidates in the senate on the republican side who want to promote their own
idea lodge cal agendas. and so they're going to be at odd with the leadership. on the democratic side, you've got democrats who believe that this president has not been progressive enough. that he's not done enough to combat the evils of wall street and they're going to want to him see that side of himself in the state of the union. so the president speaking to a divided congress. a divided country. and he's a lame duck. >> add in addition to that prominent critics are already speaking out again mr. obama's proposals. >> yeah. anti-tax campaigner grover norquist told cnn he knows what's coming. >> we do know it's a massive series of tracks increases. they'll hit everybody. he is talking about massive spending to go with the significant tax increases. what's odd is that if he really believed that any of this of a good idea he could have done it in 2009 or 2010 in budget

think the failure to be able to have prevented the attack that took place in paris was an intelligence failure. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with cnn, former cia head panetta said europe need to be more aggressive with counterterrorism operations. >> the problem is in dealing with those in the various european areas where there is frankly, less aggressiveness at going after these individuals when they return. >> reporter: tonight, belgian authorities are waiting for a 33-year-old algerian man arrested sunday in greece to be extradited in connection to the foiled plot by isis foreign fighters who allegedly wanted to murder police officers in belgium. several suspects believed to be linked to the terrorist cell are in custody. a senior belgian counterterrorism official tells cnn the group's ringleader who is considered a key isis operative is still on the run.

around his home. what is the state of control of the government? >> almost nonexistent. >> are you telling me the government is not in control? >> yes. shocking huh? >> reporter: for u.s. embassy workers, if there is an order to evacuate, they could leave by state department-ordered aircraft. but only if it is safe enough to drive to the airport. if the airport closes there is another route. cnn learned the u.s. military just increased its alert level. marines and special forces on board the "uss iowa jima" offshore are ready to go immediately according to a official in the region. v22 helicopters could land on the embassy grounds and quickly airlift out everyone including nearly 100 marines already there guarding the embassy.
an even deeper national security worry as yemen unrails the aqap and "charlie hebdo" attacks have a greater advantage. >> when there's turmoil, it's focused on aqap because they sit in the shadows and continue to have saichb and continue to train -- safe haven and continue to train. >> reporter: for the united states what to do especially about al qaeda in yemen? u.s. officials say the situation inside that country is so perilous, there is little they do but watch and wait. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. we'll take a short break now. still to come the world's second largest economy misses its goal for 2014. the fallout from china's economic slowdown. plus children teargassed in

new clashes have broken out in eastern ukraine. pro russian separatists have renewed attacks on ukrainian government forces. all of this in the battle over donetsk airport. >> monday ukraine's prime minister claimed russia sent more military equipment across the border to support the separatists upon he aed the
equipment is not sole if local street markets but, only come from the russian military. in many parts of eastern ukraine, the front lines truly are not far from the front door. that puts slins in ss -- puts slins in s-- civilians in the crossfire. >> they're saying the fighting has completely changed the way people live their lives. >> thursday through friday they come to the 138th cease-fire violations. on friday saturday another 100 cease-fire violations. what does it mean for people on the ground? it means innocent civilians subject to shelling in their homes and apartment buildings, especially in donetsk. children are affected not being able to go to school not having access to essential goods. we've documented shelling in the past weeks, and there's more reports coming in as we speak of hospitals also being hit. >> according to the u.n., the conflict in ukraine has
displaced more than a million people. and that's just since march of last year. incredible. projections for the world's economy are worse than previously predicted. the international monetary fund lowered its projections for the next two years. it expects the world economy to grow 3.5% this year and 3.7% next year. that's despite trillions of dollars being pumped into the global economy and lower gas prices. >> and both of these estimates are down from the group's forecast october. russia is expected to be among the hardest hit countries. a slowdown is already hitting china. the world's second largest economy grew last year but only by 7.4%. that is the weakest expansion there in 24 years. >> and take a look at this. here's how asia's markets are responding. so far, the nikkei closed up 2%. the shanghai composite up as well.
australia's asx was down slightly. we'll bring in will ripley live from beijing with more on china's economy. will of course china may have record its slowest growth plate 24 years. the world's second largest economy continues to grow more rapidly than any other major economy. how are these numbers playing out in china? >> that's very true, rosemary. you make an excellent point. a lot of countries are envious of china's growth. this figure is significant for a couple of reasons. one because it slightly went below what the government was projecting as growth for 2014. the government was projecting 7.5. this is 7.4. more significantly, you talked about the tremendous growthtulate japan enjoyed from 19 -- growth rate japan enjoyed from 1990. the tremendous growth has been
key to keeping public order and stability in the country. not to mention that a lot of other countries are affected by what happens to china's economy economically. and the international monetary fund says that this economic slowdown here will continue. they're predicting 6.3% growth in china for the year 2015. you know psychologically, the 8% growth factor is really important in this country because a lot of people, there's an unspoken pact between the chinese people and the government. as long as the growth rate continues, they tolerate some of the behavior in the chinese government that others may not. the heavy-handed approach censorship bureaucracy. certainly you can expect to see them in the coming year trying to put money into infrastructure and social welfare to ensure that the growth continues. >> indeed. what impact will an economic slowdown likely have on unemployment across china?
>> that's another important thing. think about, for example, we visited yesterday one of china's ghost cities a construction project that the government pumped a lot of money into. and yet these new buildings were either sitting unfinished or they're finished but sitting empty. real estate has been a major driver for the chinese economy. and if the real estate slowdown that appears to be happening continues, that affects construction. it affects production. affects the real estate market as a whole. a lot of people invest in real estate. one of the ways they've traditionally gotten good return on their money. there's a chain reaction effect that, lead to unemployment. the unemployment rate still fairly low. in urban areas around 4%. that's not accounting my grans in -- my grants in rural areas, stow's not taken to seriously.
the concern centers around growth that china needs to continue its economic momentum and, perhaps, more importantly for the government in beijing, for the communist party to stay in power. >> yeah. critical point there. will ripley joining us folklife beijing. many thanks -- joining us live from beijing. many thanks to you. still to come child protesters gassed by police. coming up next you'll see how a demonstration over a closed playground escalated into kids running for cover. before larry instantly transferred money from his bank of america savings account to his merrill edge retirement account. before he opened his first hot chocolate stand calling winter an "underserved season". and before he quit his friend's leaf-raking business for "not offering a 401k." larry knew the importance of preparing for retirement. that's why when the time came he counted on merrill edge to streamline his investing and help him plan for the road ahead. that's the power of streamlined connections. that's merrill edge and bank of america.
welcome back everyone. in nairobi, kenya, the week started with tears and screams outside a primary school monday. police are accused of using teargas to disperse a crowd of young student protesters. as jessica king reports, the incident has led to outrage on social media. [ screams ] >> reporter: this is the moment children are hit with teargas. they were protesting over their playground. some as young as 6 years old, activists say. they came to school monday to a evented off playground -- a fenced off playground on a now-disputesed piece of land. children raised signs and protested calling the act terror against children. and kenya, the land of shameless grabbers. [ shouting ] >> reporter: the children along with teachers and activists protested the fence waving
sticks and banging on it. that's when police brought out the teargas against all of them. thousands cried out on social media with the hash tag, #occupy playground. one post a quote from dr. martin luther king jr. -- "one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." another, the former vice president of kenya, the kids were "promised laptops, not canisters of teargas. someone must be held accountable." others blame activists, "what has this achieved apart from crying terrorized children? today was sickening." activists say it's always been about the children. [ inaudible ] >> reporter: at least one police officer of hurt monday, and local media report that the officer who was in charge of the operation has been suspended. cnn has reached tout police for a statement, but we haven't yet received a response.
tuesday the children go back to school. but not without the memory of what one activist calls a dark, sad day for kenya. jessica king, cnn. now some other things we're following. one again, the pope's comments are turning heads. his comments about family planning have made headlines. take a listen to this. >> translator: some think that -- excuse me if i use this word -- that in order to be good catholics, we have to be like rabbits. now, responsibility paternity, that is clear. >> the comments have confused a few people. pope francis made the comments on the plane back to rome from manila. a filipino law has made birth control readily available there despite bitter opposition from the catholic church. the church only permits natural birth control methods, chiefly abstinence. of course, this doesn't mean that this is going to have any big changes at this point. >> right. pope francis will head to the
u.s. this fall with stops in washington, new york city, and philadelphia. surely he'll say something else that turns heads and makes headlines. he's quite outspoken. still to come on cnn, we're fast approaching president obama's state of the union address. and the u.s. economy is locking better than most. why isn't the president taking a bow? we're assessing the obama economy next. plus a prosecutor investigating a terrorist bombing is found dead in buenos aires. details on his controversial case and death next.

i'm errol barnett. here are the big stories we're following now. in belgium, a manhunt's underway for the leader of a suspected terror cell that was raided last week. a belgian counterterrorism official says authorities are looking for a 27-year-old belgian moroccan isis fighter. his last-known location was believed to be greece. the international monetary fund has lowered projections for the next two years. it expect the world economy to glow 3.5% this year and 3.7% next year. both of these estimates are down from the group's forecast in october. tuesday, u.s. president barack obama will lay out his legislative agenda in the annual state of the union address. aides say his theme will be middle-class economics with proposed tax breaks and increased tax credits. he wants to pay for this all with a capital gains tax hike and new bank fees. in his sixth state of the union address president obama is expected to tell americans
the economy is recovering. >> but don't expect to see any victory laps around the white house. our christine romans explains why the president is shy about taking bows for the economy. >> reporter: this is the obama economy. the lowest gas prices in six years, stocks that have trimmed while he's been -- tripled while he's been president, stocks back to where they were before the financial crisis and a deficit cut by more than 2/3. if mitt romney had won, we might be talking about an economic miracle engineered by a biz whiz who knew just which buttons to push but this is the obama economy. the best in the world, and the president isn't getting much credit. >> a lot of democrats including the president don't want to brag about things getting better because it doesn't look too good because some people aren't sharing in the prosperity. >> reporter: the improving economy is lifting the president's poll numbers. for the first time in seven years, a majority of americans, 51%, have a positive view of the economy. median family income is still where it was in 1995 leaving
many feeling like we're living in one america with two economies. >> because wages have stagnated, there's still a perception out there, correctly so that this recovery has benefited wall street much more than main street. >> reporter: main street is getting a boost from low gas prices. that could put $140 billion back into americans' pockets this year. the president didn't do that. >> presidents can't make gas prices go up and down. >> absolutely not. >> these are big, big, broad global themes that you know they're not the god of mt. olympus. >> reporter: what the president can take credit for -- leading the economy out of the most epic recession since the great depression. >> obama deserves credit for sticking with a policy that placed a lot of emphasis on the fed and interest rates. it's worked. you can see that obama gets credit for staying the course for not going for radical austerity which probably would have made things worse. >> reporter: don't expect streamer and batallion at the
white house any time soon -- and balloons at the white house any time soon. >> we should not be taking a victory lap because the world is getting more difficult, and we're going to have to do even better to maintain this recovery. >> reporter: for president obama that means more work ahead to protect his economic legacy. christine romans, cnn, new york. while all of that plays out, apparently rosemary's about to make much more money. a new report finds the super rich -- >> you got bad information -- >> -- are about to get even richer. by next year the report says the richest 1% of the population will own more than the other 99% combined. >> that's according to oxfam whose executive director is one of the co-chairs of the world economic forum in davos this week. this means the 80 richest people on earth have the same wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion people. consider that. amazing numbers. >> incredible. >> one official with the
international aid agency says the world's billionaires have to decide what type of world they want to live in. >> if they want to live in a world where they are scared to walk down the street, where they live behind barbed wire? in countries like south africa one of the most unequal places on the planet rich people are unhappy. they live shorter lives and live in fear. >> interesting. the report came one day before president barack obama is expected to announce plans to close tax breaks for the wealthy in the u.s. we want to be watching closely. >> shocking when you say it like that. 18 people worth as much as so many others. the world economic forum gets underway in davos, switzerland, soon. the theme is new global context. >> there's plenty of economic uncertainty now. and today's leaders will new new skills to navigate it. richard quest puts things into context by learning some new skills of his own on the
mountain. >> reporter: context, the very word means seeing a situation as a part of a wider, bigger picture. it's a word we'll hear echoing around davos as they discuss the new global context. context. context. >> we have to recognize the world has fundamentally changed. and that's the reason why we have given to this meeting to see the new context. >> reporter: lower oil prices. uneven growth the specter of deflation. some of the issues and risks challenging those at davos.
blue sky thinking. that's the answer because tackling these challenges will require new lessons, new techniques techniques. this means out with the familiar equipment equipment. time to try something new. sdwuz rexcuse me? i'd never tried this before. most of the policymakers here are dealing with risks they've never faced before either. my teacher today is marcus vendler, ceo of the mountain. >> you have to follow me follow my instruction. when i say go right. you have to go right. >> reporter: like this huh? >> then push huh? ♪ >> reporter: being pulled in different direction is an undignified but necessary part of this. ♪
the problem with learning any new, whether it's sledding or tackling deflation, the risk of catastrophe is only that far away. push, push -- catastrophe catastrophe. fear discomfort uncertainty. i'm beginning to understand how today's economic leaders feel. i can barely see without my glasses. >> yes, great. perfect! perfect! >> reporter: however hard it gets, however narrow the bend the trick for everyone is just keep moving forward. >> now pull! pull pull pull, and push with the leg. right. right. perfect.
>> reporter: with the right equipment and correctnique we made it in one piece, but it's one thing we don't want to have to do all over again. >> richard quest. why wouldn't you wear your glasses if you're going to do something dangerous? serious stories we're tracking for you now. israel says it hopes argentina continues to investigate the bombing of a jewish center in bennorsuenos aires even though the lead prosecutor has died. >> demonstrators have been protesting outside the president's home demanding answers after the shooting that happened inside his apartment. he was just hours away from testifying about the bombing and iran's possible link. chester darlington has more. >> reporter: just last week prosecutor alberta nisman

autopsy, we will be able to determine the cause of death. i can't venture a hypothesis that wouldn't be prudent. >> reporter: the 1994 bombing of the jewish center killed 85 and wounded 300. neesman was appointed to investigate the attack a decade ago. prosecutors have long accused iran and hezbollah upon organizing the bombing. iran denies involvement. last week neesman accused the president and her foreign minister of covering up for iranian officials implicated in the investigation. the argentine government has denied the allegations. neesman's allegations rocked argentina. now all eyes will be on the investigation into his death amid concern that this mystery could drag on just as it did with the 1994 bombing. cnn, sao paolo. we're learning what was on the black boxes on the jetliner that crashed into the java sea.

there has to be a hidden danger for other planes still flying. >> reporter: the doomed flight of an airbus a320 with more than 3,500 in operation worldwide. meanwhile, the painstaking search for bodies continues. two more found sunday. the waterlogged remains are decomposing, and only 53 of the 162 on board have been recovered. >> translator: due to currents the divers couldn't each reach the bottom which constrained our operation. >> reporter: divers were able to pull up debris like passenger seats. but the fuselage remains at the bottom of the java sea. it's the largest piece of wreckage at nearly 100 feet long and is believed to hold some of the missing bodies. renee marsh, cnn, washington. still to come an american politician faces opposition about comments over so-called no-go zones in parts of europe.
