2:02 am
ambassador to the u.n. samantha power will focus on the relationship with the u.s. and israel. she is speaking just after netanyahu does so it could be a little bit awkward. however, the u.s. has tried to keep an open dialogue with israel around this trip and to that end, secretary of state john kerry spoke by phone on sunday with netanyahu about the negotiations with iran between the u.s. and iran. we should be getting more detail bs s about that in the coming days. >> thank you. the obama administration argues it is trying to ease the friction with israel. it criticized prime minister netanyahu for accepting the speaker's innvitation to speak before congress without talking to the white house. >> has the white house damaged the relationship? >> the animosity between the white house and the prime minister is no secret here in
2:03 am

2:04 am
speak before congress. the recent poll by channel 10 israel shows 38% of people support the decision and equal 38% oppose the decision. what is agreed upon here is the content of the speech and the safety of israel. the disagreement is if this is a good idea or not. in the past 24 hours, we learned about the content of the speech. we expect it to be about 40 minutes. our cnn team traveling with netanyahu to washington talked to a senior official. netanyahu has insight into the potential deal and intends to inform congress about the deal with two goals in mind. he wants congress to understand the deal to push back on the administration to at least make sure that israel and safety of the country are a consideration in the negotiations. second he hopes that his speech and the information he will give congress that he learned about the deal will convince the

2:06 am
the hostages were let go? >> reporter: what we are hearing from northeastern syria is that, in fact money was exchanged. this court requested ransom paid for the 20 people is our understanding. it includes 19 people, 16 men and 3 women, who were kidnapped early last week. in addition to a syrian man taken hostage a month ago. we also understand that most of if not all of these people are over the age of 50. that may indicate they are not much value on the slave market that sprung up under isis control in recent months. now this still means that at least 200 people remain missing from the syrian community in northeastern syria. last week reports that some hostages had been taken to raqqah. the defacto capital of isis in
2:07 am
north central syria. it is also where there is a slave market according to our sources. we don't know the fate of the remaining hostages. they could end up on the block at the slave market. >> 200 people or more still held hostage. ben wedeman, thank you. round two of the political fight for homeland security. money runs out in five days after the last-minute stopgap fix. the funding tied to reverseing the immigration reforms from the president. time for an early start on your money. u.s. stock futures are higher. looks like a good start to the first trading day of march. best month for the s&p since october of 2011. the nasdaq up 7.7%. it is almost up to the 5,000 mark. first time since the dot-com

2:18 am
messages of shock as well. that is the key thing here. it was not a surprise exactly that someone like boris nemtsov would have been targeted and killed, but it is nonetheless a shock. he may not have been a mainstream figure very popular in russia during his life but in his death, there is a prospect that this could change the way many russians see their country. he spoke a lot about the corruption of russia and brutality of this country and in death, many russians we spoken to have paid tribute. of the thousands that came out yesterday, they are looking again at his message. >> unbelievable. any idea who did this? the kremlin has said it is going to investigate rigorously. do we have any clues? >> reporter: there is some closed circuit television of the
2:19 am
bridge of the moment when boris nemtsov was killed. it is grainy. the shells from the cartridges fired at him, they have been reclaimed by the police. the police say they are following a couple of leads. vladimir putin has been outspoken on this. even writing to boris nemtsov's mother saying he shares her grief and vowing to get to the bottom of this and bring those responsible to justice. russia has a very patchy record on investigating these kinds of political killings. many russians believe this is just a message. a message if you oppose the kremlin like boris nemtsov did, this is how you can end up. >> matthew chance from the scene of the assassination. thank you. 21 minutes past the hour. it was a rough night for lebron james. the cavaliers, they dropped a game in overtime. you will never guess how it happened and also where lebron james took a shot shall we say.

2:31 am
>> reporter: israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will speak in a few hours. this rift has been growing over the weekend. we heard democrats speak out on this including dianne feinstein calling netanyahu arrogant and she added this. >> he doesn't speak for me on this. he doesn't at all. >> does that bother you? >> yeah. i think the jewish community is like any other community. there are different points of view. so i think that arrogance does not befit israel. >> reporter: we did learn on sunday afternoon that u.s. ambassador to the united nations samantha power will focus her speech at aipac on the relations with u.s. and israel. she is speaking after netanyahu does. it could be a bit awkward. however, the u.s. has tried to keep an open dialogue with israel around this trip and to that end, secretary of state
2:32 am
john kerry spoke by phone on sunday with netanyahu about the negotiations over iran between the u.s. and iran. we should be getting more details about that in the coming days. >> thanks, erin. the obama administration argues is it trying to ease the friction with israel. at the same time it criticized prime minister netanyahu on sunday for accepting the house speaker boehner's invitation without informing the white house first. the speaker is defending the invitation for blasting the administration. >> has the white house damaged the relationship? >> the animosity with the white house and the prime minister is no secret here in this town. >> they made it worse. >> they made it worse over the last five or six weeks. the threat coming from iran and the iranians having a nuclear weapon is a threat to the region and united states and world. this is a serious issue.
2:33 am
and we are not going to resolve this issue by sticking our heads in the sand. the prime minister can talk about this threat i believe, better than anyone. the united states congress wants to hear from him. >> it is interesting. he mentions the u.s. congress and american people. neither of those audiences are the primary audience for the speech. that is the people of israel who will go to the polls in two weeks and perhaps elect a new prime minister. that may be the audience that the prime minister wants to address more than any other. let's go to cnn's oren liebermann. >> reporter: good morning, john. the timing of the speech allows the prime minister to address the american public and israeli public. there will be an audience. israeli public is key. the people that support those parties see this as a vital
2:34 am
opportunity to warn america and europe about the threat nuclear iran poses to israel and the middle east. on the other hand those on the left see this as purely a political move with two weeks to go until the elections. in the last 23 hours, we learned more about the contents of the speech. our cnn team spoke with a senior official traveling with netanyahu to washington. he believes netanyahu knows more about the issues and he will use the speech to inform congress about some of the details of the deal. he has two goals. first, he wants congress to put pressure on the white house to make sure that israel is a consideration and a safety of the country is a consideration in the negotiations. secondly netanyahu would like the march 24th deadline for the negotiations pushed back. that deadline is three weeks after the speech before congress and one week after the israeli elections. the polls are very close.
2:35 am
>> very close in a speech like this could make a difference. thanks for being with us. happening today, secretary of state john kerry meets can iranian counterpart in switzerland. the eighth round of necessitygotiations this year. getting the deadline extended is a main objective in netanyahu's speech. all but one hostage kidnapped last week in northeast syria. the syrian hostages released on the orders of a self proclaimed isis sharia court. let's bring in ben wedeman. he is live in erbil, iraq. ben, what do we know about why this isis court has let the hostages go? >> reporter: the reports we're hearing from northeastern syria,

2:43 am
let's bring in cnn correspondent matthew chance live from the protest site. good morning, matthew. >> reporter: good morning, john. even now, several days after the killing of boris nemtsov, you can see a constant stream of people coming to the bridge in the shadow of the walls of the kremlin to pay respects to boris nemtsov. the mountain of flowers laid in tribute to the former deputy prime minister. messages put down as well. this one saying propaganda kills. a reference to the idea that it is the atmosphere of animosity inside russia at the moment. if you are against the kremlin, are you you are the enemy of the state. this is the context for the killing of boris nemtsov. that is the powerful message that this killing has sent. whoever pulled the trigger and gave the order, one message received by ordinary russians is if you oppose the kremlin, this
2:44 am
is what could happen to you. obviously, that could have a very negative impact on what is already a fringe opposition movement in the country. >> matthew, some of the signs of the protests read we are not afraid. the question is is that a real sentiment that will last. the investigation, is it widely trusted within the country? >> reporter: i won't say it is widely trusted. i will say that vladimir putin has been very upfront in saying look i'll get to the bottom of this. we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice. written a message to the mother of boris nemtsov to say just as much. the truth of it is russia has a very patchy record indeed when it comes to investigating these kinds of political killings. back in 2006 the people who ordered that execution in the
2:45 am
apartment in moscow of a prominent correspondent, never brought to justice. so i think it is fair to say a high degree of skepticism despite what the government says the same may happen this time. >> opposing vladimir putin appears to be a dangerous line of work. matthew chance thank you. the justice department about to release a report on the ferguson police department. they were making discriminatory traffic stops on african-americans leading up to the shoot death of michael brown. this has been critical to balancing the city's budget. the city of cleveland says the death of 12-year-old tamir rice in a police shooting was directly caused by the boy's own actions. the city is responding to a lawsuit filed by the family.
2:46 am
rice was fatally shot holding a pellet gun. video shows the shooting occurred seconds after police confronted the boy. dramatic video of a fatal police shooting in los angeles. shows officers involved in an altercation with a man reportedly homeless suspected of robbery outside a shelter on skid row on sunday. it is unclear what precipitated the altercation. the police tried to tase the man, but he kept fighting them. he reached for an officer's gun and three separate police officers fired shots at him. the authorities say the incidents is under investigation. they will review the video from various sources. some of the police officers wearing vest cameras. more evidence to go over here. >> new questions. let's see what is coming up on "new day." chris cuomo joins us. >> i'll talk to you about the case you showed us on video.
2:47 am
the big story is the mounting tension over benjamin netanyahu's speech before congress tomorrow. he is here now. we will get a preview of what he will say in a pro-israel lobby speech today. what is the message on iran and why is there tension with he and president obama. and jews. the poll numbers here that give an interesting picture of what is expected here in the united states and back in israel. we will break that down. we will get into the case of the los angeles police shooting. it is on video, as you saw. the reason that the officers faces are fuzzy, according to the authorities, not all officers involved in the shooting. they fuzzed the faces. the pattern is going to present familiar. what was done? was this force needed? what other lesser force was used? we will have experts here to
2:48 am
weigh in. every one of the cases, john and christine, seem similar, but every one is fact driven. >> thanks chris. we have new information revealed about the isis executioner. he is described as a loner. as someone who is cold. someone who is strange. we are live in london with the new details next.
