12:02 am
>> reporter: well we're starting to get a clearer picture this morning about exactly what took place last night. what we know are thousands of fans of the football club tried to enter the stadium pushing toward the entrance threw a very narrow metal gateway. that's when we're told boy police that some fans without tickets tried to forcibly enter the stadium. police used teargas. there was a resulting stampede. now the ministry of health is saying that is the primary cause for the deaths. a lot of broken necks, broken bones. a lot of injuries. a -- that would go toward those sores of fatalities -- those sorts of fatalities. they said some people died from asphyxiation. now the football club there, the fans' official website, called it premeditated murder saying this of a planned attack. although egypt has had a very poor record in safety at these
12:03 am
sorts of football matches. the egyptian football league said they were going do better to make sure it was safe especially following the 2012 football clashes where over 70 people were killed. i was outside the morgue where the bodies were taken. and one father was hysterical. he said, my son went to this match to enjoy some soccer. and he came -- now i'm coming to pick him up at the morgue. a lot of families there blaming the police. blaming the egyptian government blaming the president. and what we're hearing too, from this official fan, many of these deaths were between the ages of 17 and 23. >> you will naturally have questions about safe about use of force by police. but you also mentioned some of the victims' relatives talk about the government officials being responsible for this. in a way it does expose how
12:04 am
tense society is in egypt these days. we know that other premier league match have been suspended. is there a fear that other gatherings could be ripe for this sort of exposure of tensions as we go on in cairo. >> reporter: after the 2012 massacre where we saw over 70 people we saw massive street demonstrations then. and we're watching to see if we see the same demonstrations today. there has been a lot of tension between football club fans and security forces going back to 2012. these ultras fans were instrumental in gyp's revolution which humiliated the police force. there has been bad blood even before that between security forces and the fans. but also egypt has had a very poor record in the safety around their stadiums. they just recently allowed fans
12:05 am
to attend these matches again. thises one of the first premier -- this was one of the first premier league matches they were allowing fan to attend. there's going to be a lot of questions about how these deaths could happen again after the 2012 incident. >> and so tragic to think for these young people they just wanted to watch a football match and ended up dying in the process. absolutely tragic. at five past 10:00 in the morning, ian lee from cairo. two journalists who spent more than a year in an egyptian prison are set to be retried this thursday. muhammad fahmy is one of three al jazeera journalist arrested and convicted of supporting the country's banned muslim brotherhood. all three deny the charges. fahmy has a dual canadian/egyptian citizenship. his brother says fahmy renounced his egyptian citizenship because he was told if he did he'll be released. >> the exact information we got
12:06 am
is that the presidency is coming this prime minister and the foreign minister are welcoming this and it's just a signature of the prosecutor that's missing. we are very shocked because my brother of visited by authorities -- brother was visited by authorities, and they told him, fine denoun your citizenship, and we will -- denounce your citizenship, and we will let you and peter go. that's the only way you'll get out of the case. >> human rights lawyer ampall:y is headed -- clooney is headed there to hopefully gain their release. >> we'll watch closely. diplomacy stepped up amid growing violence in ukraine. president obama will host the german chancellor angela merkel where the two will discuss ukraine. >> many are fleeing the rebel-held city of donetsk after a sharp increase in shelling there. over the weekend, the ukrainian military said it killed 70
12:07 am
rebels and lost 12 soldiers. a rebel leaders at least eight civilians were killed in donetsk. also happening, the leaders of germany france russia and ukraine set to meet face to face in belarus on wednesday. we'll have to see whether russian president vladimir putin will show up to this meeting. >> that's the big question for sure. for more on that we are joined boy senior -- joined by senior correspondent matthew chance and jim bolden. matthew, president putin has barned that the summit is -- warned that the summit is conditional on some issues being resolved first. what does he mean exactly? >> reporter: you're right. that's exactly what he said. everyone else in this group of countries, the germans and the french were saying the meeting's deficit going ahead. vladimir putin saying that, yes, it will go ahead but only if we've resolved these certain issues. he didn't specify which issues he was talking about. but what we're -- what's being discussed in this format is a
12:08 am
very complex peace deal along the lines of the last truce that was agreed also in minsk last year. and that involves certain considerations that the russians are insisting on. not just a withdrawal of heavy weapons from civilian areas. so the russians say they want to protect ethinext russian civilians on the ground. also constitutional reform in russia. russia is very keen for those russian-speaking areas in the east of ukraine to have a very high degree of autonomy within the country. these are the kind of issues that russia has been stressing is important if a peace deal is going to hold on the ground in eastern ukraine. with this upsurge in violence in eastern ukraine, dip smaes also being step -- diplomacy is also being stepped up. the leaders of russia, ukraine, fran and germany spoke by telephone. german official say a package of nshs to try and reach a comprehens-- measures to try and reach a comprehensive resolution was discussed.
12:09 am
the next step a face-to-face negotiation in minsk, belarus. though after meeting that country's president on sunday vladimir putin hinted it was not a done deal. >> translator: i want to start our conversation to by informing you that i have just spoke weekend my colleagues in kiev berlin and paris in the normandy format. we agreed that we will try to organize a summit meeting in this same format in minsk. we are planning for wednesday if we succeed in settling the various suspensepoints that we have discussed intensively over the last few days. >> reporter: on friday the french and german leaders were in moscow for the kremlin described as meaningful and constructive talks. details are sketching of the new peace plan on the table. a truce between the warring sides was already agreed last september also in minsk. but minsk protocol calls for heavy weapons to be pulled back. self-rule in eastern regions, and a buffer zone to be set up along the russia/ukraine border.
12:10 am
it's understood the new plan envisions a much broader demilitarized zone to run along the current front lines. also different is the timing. washington is already mulling supplies of arms to the ukrainian government and there's a growing sense in the united states and europe that time for a diplomatic solution is running out. what one of the big problems is in this negotiation is the absence of trust. that's been deteriorating significantly over the past several months. the european union are about to announce new sanctions against russia. sanctioning certain individuals for their role in the conflict in ukraine, their alleged role that is. also you know vladimir putin, the russian president, giving an just to an egyptian newspaper yesterday. he's in egypt on an official trip. saying that the ukrainian crisis was not the fault of russia. it was the fault of the united states and western allies for
12:11 am
trying to impose their views on the rest of the world. that underlying the lack of trust between various sides on the issue. >> the world watching closely. many thanks. we mentioned german chancellor angela merkel meeting with u.s. president barack obama. the chancellor visited moscow on friday. they should have plenty to talk about whether it comes to u-- when it comes to ukraine. let's bring our jim bolden in from ukraine. the leaders have a lot to discuss. but it's no secret germany not so hot on the idea of the u.s. sending loathal arms to ukraine -- lethal arms to ukraine. and politically speaking a lot of momentum for americans to do this. might that make this meeting a big awkward? >> reporter: i don't know about awkward, but it is going to be for a robust discussion. when we have the security conference over the weekend, angela merkel was clear when she was questioned several times why don't you see the idea of arming the ukrainian side as at least a political pressure on vladimir
12:12 am
putin. she said i don't see how more arms going into ukraine could actually bring peace. she did not waiver at all -- did not waver at all. we heard from john kerry and his team saying they haven't made a final decision on whether they would arm the ukrainian side with defensive weapons, but it's very much on the table. i think while you're seeing so much diplomatic effort led by chancellor merkel is because the u.s. might arm and send defensive weapons to ukraine. that's why she's flown to moscow on friday. met with leaders from russia and the u.s., and now in washington trying to get some sense that the west could speak with one voice before they lead to minsk on wednesday. >> our jim boulden live in berlin. 12 minutes past 9:00 there. thanks. it's one of the biggest nights in music, the grammy awards. here are just a few of the
12:13 am
winners from sunday's show. [ applause ] >> british newcomer sam smith used a breakup as inspiration for his debut album, and it worked. he received four of the biggest awards including song and record of the year. >> before i made this record i was doing everything to try and get my music heard. i tried to lose weight and make -- i was making awful music. and it was only until i started to be myself that the music started to flow and people started to listen. >> lose weight. i love this one. other big winners included beyonce. she won two r&b grammies for her hit collaboration with her husband, jay-z, for "drunk in love." best album honors went to beck for his album "morning phase." and just as big as the music at the grammy awards is the fashion. or lack thereof. there's this outfit being called a loser by many critics.
12:14 am
kids cover your eyes. singer and model joy villa is using recycled snow fencing and literally barely there underwear to make her dress. she reportedly said it was "quite comfort ofable." >> i don't think so. >> to wear. if -- okay. kids look away. >> that's close up isn't it? like -- you know what it screams? it screams i want attention. >> and she got it. "boyhood" took the top honors at the 2012 british film academy award winning for best film, director and supporting actress. the coming of age film took 12 years to make. baftas are a good indicator of what will happen at the academy awards. that by the way, is two weeks away. the chief executive of bafta says 69% of the time in the last ten years those who have won the baftas go on to win at the oscars. >> all right. another winter storm hitting the northeastern part of the u.s. many people are still digging
12:15 am
out from the last one. how much snow they'll get and how international travel is impacted. that's coming up. plus it may still be a long road ahead for tony abbot after a leadership challenge against him of defeated.
12:16 am
12:17 am
despite warnings from european union partners greece's new prime minister is defiant. in a speech to parliament alexis tsipras outlined plans for taking the country's
12:18 am
austerity program apart. >> now he said he won't seek an extension of the current bailout which carries austerity requirements. instead, mr. tsipras says he wants a bridge loan until june when a more solid agreement with european partners can be reached. >> translator: we are fully aware that this negotiation won't be easy. but the road that lies ahead is an uphill one. we trust our power and will make it mainly because in this negotiation it is absolutely clear that right is our side. >> now without a loan or some kind of extention of the current bailout, greece is projected to run out of cash within weeks. eurozone finish ministers are set to meet -- finance ministers are set to meet wednesday. another story we're following -- australia's prime minister has survived a vote challenging his leadership by his own liberal party. >> still, 40% of the party's lawmakers made it clear they want tony abbot out of office. the prime minister's faced criticism for many of his
12:19 am
decisions and so-called policy flip-flops since he was elected in 2012. >> for more, i'm joined by anna coren live in australia's capital, cambra. it's clear that 40% of his party wanted him out. so how his future looking right now? >> reporter: yeah i think it's fair to say, rosemary we know that he survived this vote of no confidence. 61 votes to 39. but really 40% of the party not wanting him to be leader. political commentators saying he has suffered a major blow to his leadership if not a fatal one. in the history of australian politics no leader has faced this sort of challenge and then survived long term. and certainly here in cambefore, we're hearing that -- in cambra
12:20 am
we're hearing there could be another challenge in the coming weeks if not months. why is tony abbot so unpopular? yes, there are policy back flips. he's made a lot of unpopular decisions. as far as people within his own party are concerned, he hasn't consulted with them. they certainly feel disillusioned and frustrated with the process. then of course also the budget that he had handed down last year this austerity budget he just hasn't been able to sell to the public. then as i was getting to the clincher really in this whole drama, if you like is him giving prince phillip, the queen's husband, a knighthood last month on australia day. the voters here felt that he was completely out of touch with the electorate. there was just such a hukge backlash. the liberal party decided to give him more time. that was certainly something that former prime minister john howard asked the party to do.
12:21 am
he said you know allow him to prove himself. he's been on the job now for 17 months. not even halfway through his first term in office. and he's hanging on saying that he has -- has listened and will change. he's learned from his mistakes. we'll have to watch. >> it's not looking good. given so many australian voters disapprove of tony abbot, and apparently so many of his party members do, as well you have to ask why this no-confidence vote failed this time and what needs to happen next time for it to succeed because clearly there will be a next time. >> reporter: look there was no contender, public contender. obviously the name being tossed around is communications minister malcolm turnbull. he's widely popular amongst the public. in his own party he's despised by many. so that is the issue there.
12:22 am
the liberal party at the moment hanging on to what they have. tony abbot, they believe, he can turn things around. approval ratings at a record low. if there was a snap election called to the liberal party would lose. but certainly if ratings plummet along with the government's it will be up to the liberal party really to switch leaders as a matter of political survivor. >> we will be watching closely as you will of course. anna coren reporting at the parliament house. the anchor of america's highest rated nightly news program, brian williams has canceled a scheduled appearance amid controversy that he embellished an iraq war story in 2003. williams was supposed to be on "late night with david letterman" this thursday. the nbc newsman is taking a brief hiatus from his show after apologizing for claiming he was

12:27 am
already the snow is beginning for this area but it's really going to be picking up over the next 24 hours. on top of that, we are looking at plunging temperatures not necessarily in the next day or so but we start to see this sweep of snowfall from massachusetts to interior sections of new york. extending to down dseast maine. purpose sell an icy mix. that's really nothing to say it's going to be an icy mix. that is very dangerous for travelers on highways secondary roads, but also major rarpts going to be impacted. boston has been. this is the third storm in three weeks, and they've seen 63 inches of snow. up until this day, they should have seen about a couple of feet of snow. there are substantial snowfall totals. for boston this has been almost

paralyzing. you have to be pretty hearty as he said, to venture out. they've already closed schools events taking place. no they are shutting all of that down. for long island and new york city and philadelphia, this icy milk is going to be problematic. how much snow for boston. you, see 12 to 24 inches or 30 to 60 centimeters of snow. and then -- then those temperatures are going to plunge. we are going to see exceptionally cold air, and it look like we'll be talking about this winter season that make the top five going into the next several days. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. with the violence growing in eastern ukraine, e.u. foreign ministers are deciding whether to expand sanctions against russia. a live report from kiev next.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. let's check the headlines this hour. chaos and violence break out before a football match in cairo. egyptian state media say at least 30 people died in clashes with police sunday. authorities say it started when fans tried to force their way into the stadium. egypt's cabinet has suspended the country's premier league matches indefinitely. two attacks in baghdad, iraq kill more than a dozen people monday morning. a suicide bomber detonated his explosives in a popular restaurant killing at least 12 people and wounding others. in another area an ied went off on a busy street killing one

person. u.s. president barack obama will host german chancellor merkel in washington monday amid growing violence in eastern uvain. the two are expected to discuss providing arms to ukraine, something ms. merkel opposes. she's set to join the meeting in belarus on wednesday. the growing violence in ukraine is taking a heavy toll on civilians living in the hardest hit area. >> a rebel leader says at least eight were killed over the weekend in donetsk. nick paton walsh shows us the damage and despair that people are dealing with. >> reporter: while this is the backdrop to peace talks donetsk is finding a deathly routine of picking up the pieces. here lived and died val mirladimir, here alone when the shells
12:33 am
struck. "id nott, idid -- "id yos," he says. shells landed here. a woman died two others wounded. each loss dragging this self-declared republic further away from ukraine. so often in civilian neighbor that's shell land. both sides will continue to blame each other for firing them the net effect is often clear among the resigns of donetsk. it fuels the loathing they have for the government in kiev. the way for the rest of ukraine is complicated, so the donetsk-to-moscow bus this day is full, we're told. she says they're all fleeing the shelling. take a look at what one stray shell did to one warm, happy family life here. he shows where it landed in the bathroom. shrapnel through windows and walls into the girls' bedroom,
12:34 am
wounding their mother in the kitchen. nobody died here but childhood's innocence was surely lost. "why are they destroying us," he says. "why is the west supporting the government?" the 3-year-old family sheep dog was kill. "these are private homes," he says. "what are we meant to do? wait for them to kill us and not take up arms? we're all slobs.-- we are all slavs. why are we fating?" this man is thinking about joining the war. the violence fermenting the kremlin's narrative this is a nato-backed war on ethnic russians. with each torn home the greater of challenge of making donetsk whole again. e.u. foreign ministers are meeting in brussels today to decide whether to expand sanctions against russia over the violence in ukraine.
12:35 am
our senior correspondent fred pleitgen joins us now from more about on all of this. fred while foreign ministers and key european leaders meet as it relates to the crisis the killing in the separatist region continues. as far as what happened there this weekend, the calculations are they changing? the facts on the ground changing the realities at all, or is it more of the same? do thing continue to get worse? >> reporter: they certainly continue to get worse. i'm not sure that the calculations are changing, but you see the violence is escalating considerable. especially if you look at the donetsk region and other region as well. you can see this the shelling is intensified. also more and more people fleeing, as we saw in the reportment at the same time -- report. at the same time if you lock here officials are clinging to the possibility of talks that are going to be happening in minsk in a couple of days where president poroshenko has said that he's hoping for a
12:36 am
cease-fire without conditions, an unconditional cease-fire, to make sure the fighting there at least ends. it's no secret that the ukrainian army east of the sun and on the back foot they have lost considerably territory. however, one of the thing the ukrainian government wants to avoid is that in these talks they want to avoid giving more land de facto to separatist. keep in mind when the last grammy of reach in september, the battle lines were a lot different than now. and the pro-russian separatists have gained more territory. that is going to be one big point of contention for the ukrainians. at this point, the situation on the battlefield remains unchanged. it remains as though thing are getting worse on the battlefield rather than better. at the same time there is an effort to get the agreement going to get the fighting to end. and of course here in kiev, what many people are saying is they want more support from the west in this whole talk about possible u.s. weapons being delivered to ukraine is
12:37 am
something that does resonate here in the ukranian capital, kiev. >> you have the possibility of an unconditional cease-fire that will stop the bloodshed for now. it also seems if you listen to what president poroshenko has been saying he appears to be willing to talk about some concessions for the pro-russia rebels. at the same time the country willing and wanting to receive more weapons from the u.s. what could be after this -- if the cease-fire does hold -- what could be a peaceful compromise for both sides? >> reporter: one of the reasons why president poroshenko talk the way he does is on the one hand he's trying to reach a skies fire agreement. on the other, he has seen there have been cease-fire agreements have fallen apart. the minsk agreement from september means nothing on the battlefield now. that's one of the reasons why on the one hand they're trying to get a new deal going. on the other hand they want defensive weapons from the u.s. and possibly other countries to better equip the ukrainian forces. the germans, of course for
12:38 am
instance have been saying and many other european governments, as well saying they don't believe that's a good idea at this point in time. and you're right, the big question is what could a compromise look like. on the one hand, it appears as though the first matter of business for all parties that are going to be involved in these talks is going to be freezing the conflict. getting the fighting to stop. then the big question is are there going to be concessions, as i said on, these battle lines. are the pro-russian separatists going to get more territory? how much more autonomy will they get. then the big question for russia at least, what about a in the membership for ukraine. is ukraine going to say we are not going to try to become a member of nato. something high on the kremlin agenda. there are a lot of points up for contention. certainly it seems as though negotiations will move along those lines. >> we can't forget the possibility of ukraine moving closer to the e.u., something this sparked this unrest in the first place. fred pleitgen on this cloudy
12:39 am
morning in kiev. thanks. closing arguments set to wrap up this week in the trial of the captain of the wrecked "costa concordia" cruise liner. we could get a verdict as soon as wednesday. fran search and rescue oh franchesco schettino is charged after the ship ran aground in 2012. schettino could face 26 years in palestinian if found-- in prison if found guilty. i'm joined by rome bury chief for "the daily beast," bobbi gredaue in italy where the trial is being held. the verdict could come as early as wednesday. what is the likely outcome of the trial? what are analysts saying about the case against schettino? >> reporter: well you know, this really is a booken to a national em-- bookend to a national embarrassment. most italian are anticipating a
12:40 am
ghillie verdict on all three charges of involuntary manslaughter, 32 counts. there's causing a maritime disaster and abandoning ship. the stickiest point is going to be the manslaughter charge. primarily because there are five people who worked for the "costa" cruise line who have already pled ghillie for various aspects of the tragedy. one is the head of the crisis management in genoa who spoke to schettino the night of accident a dozen times and claimed his own culpability in telling the captain to delay the call to abandon ship. that's when the people died. that's why the people died. a lot of the legal premsaying the manslaughter is -- people are saying the manslaughter is going to be the hardest charge because others have pled guilty to the responsibility. and what they don't know is if the three-judge panel will be making the decision -- whether they see the kip ability-- the culpability of as lessening the responsible for the captain or if they're all complicit in the
12:41 am
tragedy. >> schettino, face 26 years if he is found guilty. 2 year if prison. bobbi nadeau from italy covering the trial. we await a possible verdict as early as wednesday. still to come on cnn, a look at the winners from this year's british academy film awards. what it could mean for the academy awards in the sum. arab nations say the fight against isis belongs to them. up next, we are live in jordan with how they are leading the charge toward defeating the terror group.
12:42 am
12:43 am
12:44 am
jordan says it's determined to wipe isis off the face of the earth. the country stepped up its air strikes over the weekend in response to the terror group's horrific murder of a jordanian pilot. jordan says warplanes made more than 50 bombing runs in syria in just three days. and it says those air strikes are taking a toll on isis which it refers to as dash. >> the war against isis is going to continue. we are determined to achieve the objectives of this war. and not only to degrade the capabilities we are going to destroy them. the cross hair of our weapons is at that target and definitely we're going to achieve it. >> several arab nations are
12:45 am
banding together against isis calling this their fight. right now the united arab emirates has fighter jets in jordan after rejoining the air strikes. our becky anderson is in amman and joins us live with more. becky, we should note that the emirates have halted air patrols over syria after the killing of the jordanian pilot. they're now back in the fight. top officials being tightlipped about this. you wonder what's really behind it. is the uae more of a reluctant partner in this coalition fight? >> reporter: well those were reports that they had grounded their jets. and certainly the commitment to the emirates is real with the arrival of f-16s, squad around of f-16s, c-17s, and other refueling assets to fly alongside their jordanian counterparts in this real fight against isis from abdabby to amman.
12:46 am
i think -- abu dhabi to amman. i think it's clear they recognize the threat from this group. it was a grisly video showing lieutenant colonel muath al kasasbeh being burned alive. gruesome even by isis standards. now had t has galvanized the -- now it has galvanized the arab world. countries like jordan are stepping up participation in the coalition attacking isis. >> this is definitely not the u.s.' war. this is definitely our war. >> the uae has also announced it will send a squadron of f-16s to fly side by side their jordanian counterparts as they carry out air strikes. muslim clerics too, have joined in trying to discredit the group's ideology. >> we tell youth islam did not carry a message of sabotage and destruction. only came to serve a hume, to achieve world -- serve humanity to achieve world peace to the
12:47 am
world. >> reporter: atrocity by isis are unifying arab leaders to find a common strategy. beyond the strong rhetoric a lot of challenges need to be overcome. for one, many experts believe aerial bombardless alone won't dismantle the so-called caliphate that now stretches from southeastern to central iraq. there's no indication that countries like jordan are willing to put boots on the ground at this stage. relying on the forces already there has its own shortcomings. in iraq the country's weak army has mainly relied on shia militia backed by iran to drive out isis from key positions. a strategy that may further sideline the sunni minority. in syria, a u.s. plan to train moderate fighters that can take on the extremists is still weeks away. all along, isis expands its tentacles of terror. in egypt's sinai province militants loyal to the group
12:48 am
