12:05 am
have cordoned off the area around the cafe and moved to a safe distance. they say they have discovered what they believe may be some suspicious package. we've seen the police bring in a sniffing dog, a black labrador has combed through the area. been sniffing around. also we have seen another truckload of heavily armed danish police arriving on the scene, as well. police aren't telling us anymore right now. certainly the indications are that there's a possible bomb threat given that they've brought in the sniff inging dogs to the area and moving people back. hard to imagine how a suspicious package, have been place the at the cafe since it's been under police guard since even before saturday's attack. although this was the same area where some 40,000 danes flocked
12:06 am
to last night for a candlelit vigil to honor those killed in the attack on thursday. >> let's get back to the suspect then. we'll keep an eye on that part of the story you mentioned. the suspicious package. talk about all this we're learning about the suspect and friends who are also arrested. >> reporter: the 22-year-old gunman who was killed on sunday early is not morning, as he returned to a location in northern copenhagen the danish-born man of arab origin. we know this he had a passion for kick boxing. he had participated in amateur championship bouts. we understand from friends who are quoted in some of denmark's newspapers some of his former friends, that he was a fairly intelligence man with a short fuse. from police, of course we know
12:07 am
that only two weeks prior to the attacks he was released from prison. he was held on charges of attacking a commuter a 19-year-old man on a computer train in copenhagen. police say that the gunman had very much bon their radar because he a history of violence a history of weapons violations. they do say that there is no evidence that he ever trained with islamic factions in syria or iraq, and knew him for his link to some copenhagen gangs more really than to any radical ideology. as far as the two other men in police detention, we've been he told they are 19 and 22 years old. they were seized during a raid on an internet cafe and have been charged with accessories to two murders and with trying to
12:08 am
help the gunman hide the weapon and himself in the wake of those attacks right now. no further details on the men. they could be held for several weeks beforing there progress in this investigation. >> karl penhaul on the line. he had to move from the live shot leave his equipment because as we understand a suspicious package has been found. they think it may be a bomb. as a precaution people have been moved out. that is at the cafe where that attack took place on saturday. the northeastern part of the u.s. is weathersing it third norm in four weeks with more cold on the way. now the south is dealing with a big chill as well. >> states of emergency have already been declared in five states as well as over in washington, d.c. this as the southeast tries to handle the cold and unexpected weather. more than 1,000 u.s. flights
12:09 am
have already been canceled in participation of the storms, primarily in the east. one of the hardest hit areas in the northwest this season is boston. the city has already recorded almost 2.5 meters of snow this year. boston has seen so much snow this winter, it's finding it hard to find places to put it once it's removed from the streets. will ripley reports on boston's snow-removal efforts. >> reporter: you're seeing a herculean effort by the city of boston massachusetts to clear the streets in time for people to return back to work tuesday morning morning. the day after the holiday, a full workday for many. it is remarkable when you look at this. this is an empty lot in boston that's been transformed into what is called a snow farm. they bring the snow in huge trucks after scooping it up and dump is on what this is now a
12:10 am
mountain of snow. you see the size of it. it dwarfs the heavy construction equipment that they're using to then scoop the snow. let me show the size of one of the trucks that is bringing the snow in here. it is a stream of truck, truck after truck full of snow. they bring it to this machine here. this is called a snow melt erer. they dump the snow into the top. it has hot jets that melt the snow and the water comes out there. it's dumped into the sewer system. this machine has the capacity to melt 150 tons that is 300,000 pounds of snow every hour. yet, still that t's not enough to keep up with the demand. there's an incredible amount of snow that has fallen on boston. so much that it's crippled the city's transportation system. the transportation director saying that it will be 30 days of snowfall snowe-removal operations like this to get the buses and trains running back to

12:12 am
moisture within your storm. >> cause and effect. tell that to your friends who say global warming -- >> it looks like the pattern is favoring that area of the united states. a graphic to show what the study showed. notice the 71% highlighting the northeastern corner of the united states. moisture content and extreme precipitation events more than likely in the area. large-scale area with the exception of the hawaiian islands believe it or not would see the least likelihood there was heavy precipitation events in the negative category. that was the study from 2014. goes hand in hand with what's happening. since 1987 the top ten snowstorms in boston six have occurred since 1997. two have occurred this particular season. much the same for new york city. five of ten have occurred since 2000. here's what's coming down -- sleet, been that freezing rain. that is literally in the area in

12:20 am
anything else. samsung suing figure defamation as well -- suing for defamation as well. this is an ongoing legal battle between the two. you see the tv footage released by lg on to youtube. they say it's basicallyians showing they're in the right. shows executives opening the door. shows there were samsung employees in the shops around them. and they would have noticed if they had in fact had been deliberately damaging the washing machines. samsung is saying the footage was edited and shows lg's point of view rather than samsung's. this is an ongoing legal battle. mediation doesn't seem to have worked. looks like the courts will have to decide who's right. >> it's difficult for the rest of us to see who's telling the truth here. hopefully you think the customer benefits and will have washing machine with strong doors from

12:22 am
difficult for me to say where this could go. we haven't seen all of the evidence. we're seeing the statements that both companies are putting forward to the public and media to put their point of view across. errol? >> our viewers can head to youtube where one of the companies posted their video to see it for themselves. paula hancocks live in seoul, south korea. past 5:20 there. thanks. ukraine's cease-fire agreement is threatening to collapse the diplomatic efforts to prop it up that are ongoing. our update next.

we know most of the fighting has happened in the town talk about how shaky this cease-fire is. >> reporter: here there snow steefr speak of all at frankly. we were -- well is no cease-fire to speak of at all frankly. we were here and ukrainians saying they couldn't go much farther down than the key village. one worker explaining how the road is covered in mines and shrapnel which, potentially shred the tires of a convoy, say, like the osce monitors who are still trying to gain access. they should have access as part of the minsk peace agreements. that is what was called. again today by the russian, french and german presidents. it hasn't happened yet. it may still be extraordinarily difficult. without the monitors getting into the city, it's going to be very hard to secure some drop in violence in the fight for it.
12:27 am
here's what we had saw yesterday. these ukrainian tanks have just come out of the besieged town. the road to it a one-way street to the grave, one said. we're following an aid mission to civilians caught by the fight in the supposed cease-fire. this is cursed to be an artillery range. the quiet former soviet union town caught in the crossfire. even no still with a supposed cease-fire, its people forced off the streets. underground, its homes reduced to rubble. yevgeny has brought the red cross food. >> maybe 2,000 will leave. i don't know. >> reporter: in the past culture of those who have nowhere or way to run. some underground for three weeks now. this man begs us for insulin.

[ applause ] >> reporter: on the highways above, hours away from when the heavy guns are men to be with drawing -- meant to be withdrawing, we saw ukrainian weapons headed the wrong way. it allowed the question what do you call a cease-fire when the fire hasn't stopped. it's quieter here in donetsk, but the cease was always to be the place where the cease-fire came unstuck. heavy weapons were being with withdrawn. there's no sign of separatists pulling back either. there are media reports suggesting that both sides think they control that key road down into the town which is a remarkably confusing situation frankly, for diplomats who have
12:30 am
to try and navigate this. at what point does the cease-fire have the rug pulled from under it and people stop calling it? that could be imminent. the monitors whose job to say effectively make the call their patience may run out eventually in terms of going along with saying the cease-fire is holding to a degree. i've heard from a european diplomat that a planned meeting with the key -- what's called trilateral contract group, that's the separatists, the ukrainian military and monitors was supposed to happen in kiev at 10:00. it's not going to happen. you clear quite why, but another sign that perhaps some of the sequencing the kind of infrastructure of diplomacy here is beginning to shred at the seams simply because of the violence around the town. and the fact that both sides don't seem to think that the cease-fire should hold water. back to you. >> diplomatic efforts still underway. not looking good for the cease-fire at all. nick paton walsh reporting from
