12:10 am
there are some flash frames of the beheadings of egyptian christians that happened last week in elizabeth. but this video actually ends with a tight shot of one of the prisoners. there's no indication they have been executed. but that certainly is the concern of many here that that may be the next installment of these chilling propaganda videos coming out of isis. it's intended to undermine the morale of kurdish fighters but we've spoken to many people here. and they're sort of -- they shrug it off. they realize it's propaganda. they're angry that -- and regret that their comrades are captives of isis. they realize there's not a lot they can do but they look ahead. they realize this is a long fight with this organization. errol? >> so ben, you have a psychological effort by isis to

12:12 am

call now. in eastern ukraine, an explosion killinged at least two people including a police officer. >> it happen during a peaceful pro-government march sunday. government officials say they've arrested four people and say the explosion is a suspected terrorist act. meanwhile in kiev activives held a dignity march to mark one year since pro-russian president yanukovych of deposed. let's bring in senior international correspondent fred pleitgen live in kiev for more on the blast and the latest on ukraine's cease-fire. fred, what more information do you have on the blast and those arrest d arrested? >> reporter: we got information
12:19 am
from ukrainian authors. they do place the blame once again on russia. there's one security organization here in ukraine that says that the people who are behind all of this are in russia. they believe there might have been russian involvement as far as the russian intelligence service concerned as well. what we know from ukrainian security sfoersz that four people have been arrest after the blast. apparently they belong in an organization that trained in belograde in russia according to the ukrainian authorities. we haven't gotten anything from the russian authorities so far. obviously this is a horrible blast that happened there. one of the thing we have to know is that the town does have a certain degree of volatility. there wasfliction shortly after the revolution happened about a year -- was friction shortly after the revolution happened about a year ago. there were buildings that were occupied and riots, frankly,
12:20 am
between russian speaker and the pro-ukrainian government population there. it is a place that so far has not been engulf in the worst of the violence like in other places in eastern ukraine. but there are many in key whoef fear there might be forces trying to destablize it as well to get it torn into the area that has been so badly hit by the violence they believe it may be the next target of pro-russian separatists. there's nothing that would confirm that but that's the fear on the ground in kiev. rosemary? >> let's take closer look at that cease-fire in eastern ukraine which appears to be that in name only. what is happening on the ground as the cease-fire hangs by a thread? >> reporter: i wouldn't say it's in name only. but there are certainly infringements happening. one of the things ukrainians are saying is they have a plan in place to withdraw heavy weapons from the front line. frankly they say they can enact the plan unless the fighting
12:21 am
stops in all places along the cease-fire line. they say clear that that is what the cease-fire agreement says. the pro-russian separatists for their part have saidive -- they've signed an order to withdraw heavy weapons. it's unclear at this point whether or not that's been enacted. whether or not any weapons are being with drawn. at this point in time the organization that's supposed to monitor the cease-fire and the next stage of the cease-fire, which would be the withdrawal of heavy weapons can't get to most of the areas where it is supposed to do that. there have been freer enfrankments that happened overnight. authors told us there were only two breaches of the cease-fire a lot less than we've been seeing over the past couple of days. clearly there still is enough tension, there are enough skirmishes for at least the ukrainian side to say at this point in time they're not willing to move to the next stage and get their heavy weapons ready for the front line. >> fred pleatitgen joining us live
12:22 am

12:35 am
did. i was there on the scene. the one thing i am going argue about, the thing that's got my talking about this is in one of those types -- you haven't played it -- >> actually i think i know which you'll refer to. let me play the sound bites and see if that's what you're referring to. this is from the hamptons in 2009 -- >> when the argentines surrendered from the british, there were riots in the streets of buenos aires. i wrote about this in my novel "those who trespass." i was out pretty much by myself because the other cbs news correspondents were hiding in the hotel. what -- you got to cover the story which i did. >> reporter: that was the first time. i wanted to have you react. he says nobody else was out there that night. you say -- >> what he just said is a fabrication, a lie. there five cbs news correspondents including him assigned to the bureau. he send all five of the correspondents and all ten or 12 of the camera crew members out

12:40 am
moves. and we're joined now live from athens to talk about the delicate balance between driving its economy and managing its debt. as you showed i worn if the greeks are used to it and are getting used to the jewelrile. >> reporter: i think there the key phrase is a fumes. extention after ecoxtension does not create the right environment for money to be coming into greece. for real project to be taking place thm is the -- place. this is the concern. obviously people are happy a solution has been found, and they're happy to hear that details are being worked out. many people also believe that the structural reforms are very much needed. and they're at the heart of the
12:41 am
problem in greece. the extension means that the economy is likely trow main frozen for longer because until the right environment is created for people to be able to invest here and to carry on with their lives. this uncertainty will remain. and i think this is very much at the core of how people are living their lives right now. they seem to be living in a perpetual state of crisis. >> yeah. it may be frustrating, but you all analysts have said the systemic financial issues that have underlied grease's economy had to be dealt with in order for it to prosper as part of the eurozone. work that needs to be diamondback done. thank you for joining us from athens. hsbc is presenting its earnings report for 2014 under the shadow of scandal. the global banking giant reports before tax profits of $18.7 billion for 2014. down 17% from 2013.
