welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. john berman has the morning off. 4:00 a.m. in the east. egypt launching air strikes against isis targets in libya following the release of a video. this video appears to show the mass beheading of 21 egyptian christians. christians who were kidnapped in libya. egypt's president vowed to avenge those murders. could egypt have more military plans against isis in the works? cnn's ian lee is live in cairo. ian, the world is waking up to horror of the video and new act of violence. simply barbaric act from isis. these christians were killed because of their religion. >> reporter: that's right. when they were kidnapped in december and january, isis militants took them from buses, took them from where they were
living. they left the muslim companions and took the christians and yesterday, they released the gruesome video of them taken out on the beach in libya. a militant giving the speech before being beheaded. the production quality of the video is similar to what we have seen in iraq and syria showing communication between the two groups. in the speech the militant gave he gave warnings to the christian community here in egypt, egyptian government and european union. the president seemed the way he would retaliate under the cover of darkness. f-16s took off from warehouses and struck. local reports on the ground say that was in the city of durna. a city in the control of isis
that has long history of sending fighters to iraq and syria. the video shows isis has a strong presence in libya. christine. >> a strong presence in libya. ian lee, thank you. the white house condemning the beheadings. quote, the killing of innocents is the most recent acts. it further galvanizes the community to unite against isil. now to denmark where police are looking for the man what attacked a free speech forum and then another attack at a synagogue. the gunman killed in a shootout with police on sunday. we are learning more about the shooter who officials say was
well known to danish police. this morning, they have arrested two alleged accomplices. let's bring in karl penhaul live with details. the suspect killed by police. well known to danish officials, not for terrorism ties but because he was a convicted criminal. >> reporter: absolutely christine. i want to locate you where we are in copenhagen. this is the cafe that mid afternoon saturday turned to mayhem. the shooter showed up on the scene as the free speech forum was going ahead and sprayed the coffee shop with bullets. we found 24 bullet holes in the windows there. that is still a crime scene. the area is on lockdown. the investigation is still ongoing. overnight, police said the gunman is 22 years old. that was the gunman killed yesterday morning.
he is danish born, but arab origin. as you say, well on the police radar. well known to police. he had a background of violence. he was recently released from prison because he stabbed a fellow commuter on a commuter train. he was also known by police because of weapons charges. he was affiliated with a gang that roamed the street. he had no known connection with any islamic extremist groups or no knowledge he traveled to syria or iraq to fight with the factions there. police have now charged two men they arrested yesterday. charged with being accomplices with the crime. supplying some of the automatic weapons to the gunman and help him hide him after the fact. they are being charged with planning to help him, but the lawyer says his clients are
innocent. christine. >> thank you for that karl penhall. condemning the jewish graves in eastern france. the grave stones were defaced with swastikas and nazi slogans. the french prime minister says it is an insult to memory. and benjamin netanyahu comments followed the fatal shooting of the jewish guard at the synagogue. he invited france jews to move to israel after the attack on the kosher supermarket in paris. the northeast meets the north pole again. millions facing arctic cold again with windchills as low as
20 degrees below zero in places. dangerous cold stretches from michigan to maine and into the southern united states. it comes as the northeast digs out from the season's fourth major snowstorm. parts of new england saw more than 2 feet fall. boston dealing with another 16 inches of snow. the city had its snowiest month on record. 45.5 inches. cnn's will ripley has more. >> reporter: christine, we are turning on to i-95 north. we are about 35 miles outside of boston. we have been checking out the activities of road crews which have stayed out overnight and early morning hours. including this plow here making sure the roads are clear of any blowing snow and also trying to make sure the roads are free of ice. particularly black ice, which as you know, can be very dangerous. a lot of drivers are on the roads although it is presidents
day and schools and government offices are closed. the fear of first responders and police is that they will be overconfident and assume the roads because they are dark, that they are safe. perhaps black ice could be hidden along here which could cause cars to slide out of control. it is what we saw i-95 southbound near boston yesterday when there was a huge pile up. more than 20 vehicles involved. minor injuries. again, just another example of a danger even after this storm has passed. now another thing that we are watching closely in the region is the heavy snow accumulated on rooftops. we saw several roof collapses throughout the region yesterday. two in new hampshire. one a strip mall. the other an apartment complex where 30 families were displaced. a roof collapse one reported in the boston area. as this snow sits on these roofs, especially of the businesses that may have been empty over the weekend, people are going back in the businesses on monday morning. if the roof gives way and people
are inside obviously that is a dangerous situation. we continue to watch things on the roads and throughout the region and like police as well as they try to monitor the conditions and make sure that everyone stays safe. christine. >> will thanks for that. you stay safe will. a lot of snow and ice on the roads. to the deep south. bracing for a deep freeze. let's get to meteorologist pedram javaheri for an early look at your weather. >> good morning, christine. the south starting to feel winter from kansas city to nashville. significant snow accumulations. more than 60 million people in the region under a winter weather advisory or winter weather warning. look at the wintry mess east of oklahoma city. the i-40 corridor is the most dangerous roadway across the country. mainly across little rock. significant ice accumulation. north of that line through i-70
and st. louis region significant snowfall. talking about ice. anytime you get from .25 to .50 inch tree limbs can come down. widespread to power lines coming down. look at the color contours in little rock. that is an area of very dangerous conditions. it stretches east south of nashville and pushing to charlotte with smaller accumulations of ice. it brings in snowshowers across the deep south and pushes up the eastern seaboard by tuesday morning. more wintry weather is possible from washington baltimore and philly and then maybe new york and boston by the middle portion of the week. >> boston again by the middle of the week. breaking overnight, arrivals and departures slow down after a pipe burst into the control tower. workers had to evacuate and for a brief period no planes were leaving. they are working to restore full

us. make no mistake, isis kidnapping and killing 21 christians. it is almost a scene out of a holy war. >> reporter: it is christine. the video is very graphic and unlike other isis videos we have seen they do not cutaway. they show every graphic detail. the production quality high and similar to what we have seen in iraq and syria. in the video, a message. warning to the christian community here in egypt and european union. libya is on europe's door step. the government announced they would take measures they deemed necessary and early this morning, under the cover the darkness f-16s took off from egyptian air bases. they struck weapons depots and warehouses. local media in libya reported that happened in the city of
durna. the city that isis controls and has a long history of militants. isis. isis in libya has a long history. this is a group that is expanding. it is taking advantage of the security and political void that is in libya right now after the 2011 uprising that overthrew moammar gadhafi. the leader of libya that backed by the west. for egypt, this now is very worrying. they are sandwiched between isis and the sinai peninsula that has killed hundreds of security personnel and now they have this going on in libya as well. we will be watching to see if egypt continues the air strikes in the hours that follow. christine. >> you know, for so long now, ian, after the past several weeks, there has been discussion if isis is a political movement
or religious movement. from time to time people say, you know don't call it radical islamist organization because frankly these are political motives and terror motives and not wrapped in islam. when you look at the group, singling out and killing christians the religious narrative is undeniable. >> reporter: that's right. this is a group that uses i would not necessarily call it a religious group. it is a group that uses religious to achieve its political objectives. it has been condemned by scholars all over the world. i talked to the grand mufthd of europe. the head of islamic scholarship for sunni islam. this is a group that appeals to
diseven franchise chiezed people. and after the overthrow of morsi. and believing that what they need to do is join groups like isis. we have seen egyptians go to iraq and syria. libya has also had a lot of fighters go to iraq and syria and they are bringing back these skills they learn. the hard-core fighters which will prove difficult to root out. christine. >> ian lee. thank you. the white house by the way condemning the beheadings in a statement, the white house says, quote, the wanton killing is the vicious acts perpetrated by isil affiliated terrorists against people of the region. the u.s.-led coalition stepping up the aerial
bombardment of isis after the iraqi base which is home to troops. there is concern the battle field will widen. it is gaining ground west of baghdad. we have phil black in erbil with the latest of the expanding reach of the group. >> reporter: well there are certainly concerns christine. there are efforts underway to curtail it. some 1,400 iraqi soldiers have graduated with the helped of u.s. military personnel from basic. this is part to rebuild the iraqi military. new operations and offensive against isis especially north of the country. the prime minister says the plan to take mosul west of where i am standing has plans to begin within months. ultimately it will depend on
the situation on the ground and training and rebuilding efforts. in anbar province, isis continues to gain ground. it launched attacks against the air base where 300 military personnel are based. some efforts to take al bagdadi have made little progress. the fighters helping the iraqi military have appealed for greater assistance from the international community to help stop the isis advance. in the capital baghdad, the iraqi government is now also facing a political crisis tied into the long running sectarian tensions. the major sunni political blocks have boycott the parliament and government after a sunni tribal leader found dumped under a bridge in baghdad. the sunnis believe the shi'ite
militia is responsible. the prime minister says whoever did this was trying to distract iraq from the efforts against the real enemy, isis and has promised to punish them. christine. >> phil black for us in iraq. thank you for that phil. 37 minutes past the hour. kayla mueller's boyfriend speaking out for the first time describing efforts to free her. omar alkhani said he was face-to-face with her in a detention cell in syria. he saw her face for a few seconds to show it was the 26-year-old aid worker. he posed as her husband hoping captives would free her if she were married. she denied being his wife. new developments overnight in denmark. two men charged as accomplices in the deadly copenhagen attacks. pleading not guilty in court. alleged gunman known to police killed in the shootout of the

muslim gangs that roamed certain neighborhoods in copenhagen. nothing to indicate he would head to syria or iraq to train with the extremist factions there. this is outside the krudttonden cafe where the first attack took place mid afternoon on saturday. the bbc obtained an audio recording of the moment the gunman gunman burst on scene. let's take a listen to that. >> why do we still say but when we -- [ gunshots ] >> reporter: no mistake there, you can quite clearly hear the sound of automatic weapons fire opening up. you can see the result of that on the front of that cafe that
is now guarded by armed police. it is still very much a crime scene. across the window we counted at least 24 bullet holes there. in new developments police charged two men they arrested yesterday. initially, they believe the fwun gunman was acting alone, but now police charged two men with helping him of obtaining the automatic weapons. they say these two helped the gunman conceal himself for hours between the attack on the coffee shop here and the time that he attacked the jewish synagogue. christine. >> thank you for that. karl penhaul for that. reuters naming the suspect. the french government condemning the desecration of
