final moments. a new report appears to shed light on what was said on the germanwings flight just minutes before it slammed into the french alps. and the vote count is under way in nigeria's presidential election. officials say we should know the results very soon. and angelina jolie's inspirational message to kids about being different. i'm errol barnett, solo no
longer. >> and i'm zain asher. glad to be with you. this is "cnn newsroom." we begin with new and startling information emerging about the mental state of the co-pilot shortly before the germanwings flight 9525 crashed. >> a french paper cites sources close to the investigation that lubitz had a the mental disorder. >> another paper has released a detailed timeline of the flight's final harrowing moments. it's based on information apparently leaked from the cockpit voice recorder. the pilot who was locked out pounded and shouted, "open the damn door." and lubitz, as we know, flew the plane into the ground. cnn has not confirmed either of
these reports. meanwhile, workers are carr offing a path into the rugged terrain to give easier access to recovery crews and victims' families. >> our diana magnay joins us from dusseldorf. it is early there. many of these reports, you know, being published over the weekend. but what new information can you tell us this monday? >> reporter: well, we are expecting the dusseldorf prosecutor at some point early in the week, possibly today, to add to the information three gave last friday, which was the information about medical documents being found in the house and that lubitz had ripped up medical notes covering the day of the accident. but since then, it's been wild speculation in the press, the results of which you just read out which we haven't really been able to confirm today. the most harrowing of which is p this transcript of the cockpit
recording, which has details and they say is verifiable. i think we should add on that point, that the bea, which are the french investigation authorities who are leading the technical investigation into what went wrong, the only ones who have the actual black box with the audio recording of what was on it, the french prosecutor himself only had a transcript of the black box. and this is presumably what has been leaked to the paper. but it does make for extremely chilling reading. as you say, the pilot, shortly before the crash, banging on the door, using some kind of what sounded like a metallic banging, possibly an ax, to break down the door, saying, "open the god damn door", as passengers scream. and you can hear the wing tip
supposedly hitting the mountain, all of this from the transcript of that audio recording. in the french alps, rescue teams sill trying to find the other black box which has the flight data recordings to add to, as they piece together this puzzle. errol? >> and diana, the bea hasn't come out and said that this report is inaccurate. we've yet to confirm it, but it does seem these two separate reports match up with one another. also quite chilling that in this detailed timeline, it seems that the co-pilot, while the captain is trying to break down the door, sounds calm, is breathing normally, all the way until the time few moments, and certainly, his psychological condition is in question and will be a topic of intense scrutiny. what will the next steps of this investigation be and how will that information be shared or made public. >> reporter: well, it depends on how much the prosecutor is
prepared to tell us about their investigations, whether they have been talking to some of the doctors who supposedly would have prescribed him with these prescription drugs which up thats over the weekend citing sources close to the investigation say were given to lubitz. they were presumably been talking to doctors and of course those close to him. and these reports say that this was some kind of psychosomatic illness, characterized as severe burnout syndrome. we know that the head of the french criminal police force has been talking to his dusseldorf counterparts in the city sharing their information. and as i said, we're hoping to hear from tthe prosecutor ourse later this week. >> diana magnay live for us in deucele d l dole dorff this mor.
>> how do you draw the line between normal stress and anxiety associated with any job and something far more chilling and far more serious? >> it's very difficult to do. >> the 150 people on board the germanwings flight were from at least 18 different countries. many of their loved ones have traveled to a village near the scene of the crash and are holding vigil at a makeshift memorial. >> and the family of a man shared more about his life. >> reporter: a father grieves. a mother and sister wonder why. the man was a sports journalist from iran. to mashid, he was big brother. >> he said if someone kill in the flight crash it would be okay, because it's for one
minute, and will gone and you are in the sky and there your soul will go, but he has eight minutes. >> reporter: it's minutes for the co-pilot to crash an airliner into the french alps. the uncle prefers to focus on his life, not death. >> he was fantastic journalist, and he's still one of the best we have in iran. and because he work not only as a journalist, he work with his heart. >> reporter: milad had been in spain with a fellow journalist. they'd taken these photos together. they'd been covering the soccer game in barcelona. he was a lifelong barcelona fan.
his hero? the local village mayor is here at the memorial site to help console all the dwreefing families. and on sunday he sent this digger to carve a track to the crash site. that's around 2.5 miles away as the crow flies, but till now, accessible only by helicopter. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> reporter: i felt the families wanted this, and they asked me to get them as close as possible as if every meter mattered he says. he was asked to describe the area closest to the crash. this was a corner of bear dipar. but now there is the before and after the accident. i tell them about the alpine scenery up there, where wildflowers grow and water flows in crystal streams. >> everything is great for him. but for us, we just, we just can
calm ourself down with this picture that he's now the king of the -- >> reporter: milard and all those who flew with him, the king of the alps. france. let's check some other stories. campaigning in the general election in the united kingdom officially gets under way today. and david cameron asks the queen to dissolve parliament. the election will be held may 7. france's conservative ump party, led by nicolas sarkozy is showing a strong showing. the ruling socialists of francois hollande appear to have lost about 30 departments. sarkozy calls a conservative
victory a massive rejection of hollande's policies. greece is hoping for approval today of its new list of economic reforms demanded by international creditors. if accepted, it would mean the release of more bailout money to the cash-strapped country. leaders spent the weekend in talks in brussels. another story we're following. according to yemen's foreign minister, -- >> saudi war planes have begun daylight strikes in sanaa. now these latest strikes are described as some of the most intense since the coalition began its campaign last week. the rebels say the strikes have killed 48 people. >> the fighting comes amid word that the arab league is forming a new joint military force.
ian, the arab world has seen so much division. how much coordination can we expect with this new military force? >> reporter: well, zain, first off, this is unpress didn'ted. we've never seen this kind of unity among arab states before. we haven't seen this. so to see all these arab countries come together to form a unified front, we are expecting this is another chapter, a new chapter in the developments in this region, one where the countries feel the threat not just coming from yemen but other areas in the middle east. egypt would like to see this sort of action in libya as well. but when it comes to yemen, i was in the convention center this weekend, listening to these arab leaders speak, and from what it sounds like, this invasion is imminent. fresh air strikes rock yemen. war planes pound weapon depots and radar installations, also
apache helicopters in the skies above in egypt as arab leaders are determining yemen's future, hoping to stem the shiite houthi rebels' offensive. escalation of hostilities is all about certain. the saudi king calls for the wave of terrorism to be confronted and eradicated. saturday night, saudi armor seen heading to the border with yemen. at least nine arab countries offer their land, air and naval forces. answering the plea of yemen's president for military intervention to fight the quote, militias and their domestic and foreign allies who want to use yemen to destabilize the region by invading the provinces with a bloody war. egyptian forces here are in the conference and could see action soon. yemen's foreign minister tells cnn he expect as ground invasion within days.
the arab voice not entirely unanimo unanimous. iraq rejects the operation. the iraqi foreign minister tells me today we made it clear we are against the military intervention. for now that solution doesn't seem to be on the table. the voices of concern drowned out by the voices of war. zain, there are still, there is still a diplomatic window open. there's talks and consultations. the united nations, the international community is urging diplomatic political talks to get everybody together to stop this. they do not want to see an increase in violence, this invasion going forward, but talking to the ministers and hearing what they had to say, it sounds like it could be imminent, especially from the yemeni foreign minister. one thing that wasn't discussed
was who would take care of the humanitarian aid. if there was a ground invasion, there would be refugees, where would they go and who would take care of them? g and we're noticing a sectarian divide. predominantly shiite countries that get a lot of support from iran voting no to this resolution, where you have sunni countries really leading the way on this. >> certainly worsening the sunni/shia divide. but how will iran, the major shia power in the region, how will they respond to all of this. thank you. now prosecutors say the germanwings co-pilot was declared unfit for work on the day of the crash but still ended up at the controls of the plane somehow. coming up, i'll ask an expert if better mental health testing
could have prevented this. and the largest turnout in recent nigerian history. also ahead, angelina jolie makes her first public appearance since revealing another surgery to stave off cancer, and she caps it off with an inspiring message to kids. stay with us.

a french prosecutor says remains of 70 to 80 people from germanwings flight 9525 have been identified. >> they could provide more information about the moments the plane went down from the data recorders. >> could the medical exam which an aviation source says the co-pilot did pass last year have prevented this disaster. i'm going to get with the presen principal of yates aviation. how stringent are mental health checks on pilots. you say they're nowhere near sufficient enough? >> no, they're nowhere near sufficient enough. so much as much of the
information that is passed back and forth between pilots and a medical examiner depends on trust. it depends on the trust of the pilots to impart the information that the medical examiner might require. and that in and of itself presents us with a problem, of course. >> certainly, if it's just reporting how you are, you would suspect they wouldn't want to volunteer sensitive information that could possibly end their career. that potentially could have happened with this co-pilot. if this was some kind of suicide, how rare would that be? we all watch this with a certain level of nervousness. >> we do watch it with a certain level of nervousness. there's an awful long way to go in this investigation yet.
we only have a part of the picture of the, from the cockpit voice recorder, the black box in other words. we don't have the other parts of the picture, which is that data from the flight data recorder. so that will give us much more clearer answer as to precisely what went on, on board the plane. but, you know, we have to wait and see, because there's a long way to go before the investigators get to that place. >> certainly. what do you make of a blanket policy that will ensure two piloting remain in the cockpit at all times in europe. is that something you support? is that where we should be moving? >> well, two pairs of eyes. most certainly. and yes, that's the right thing to do. it's the right step to take. to make sure there are always two people and that would in and
of itself negate any issues that we have going forward. of course, that can last for a certain length of time. we need to find a technical solution to, to this problem as well. that technical solution should be quite easy to find. >> all right. chris yates, thanks so much for your time joining us from bolton, england. appreciate it. >> of course one of the major issues is that so much of the transcript has been leaked to the media, to the press, all over the world. so i'm sure that's causing problems as well. when we come back, after deadly violence and delays, the ballots are being counted in nigeria. we are live, stay with us. when it comes to vaping, vuse has changed the game.

all right. well, it is nearly 8:30 in the morning in nigeria, and the ballots are still being counted from this weekend's hotly contested presidential race. >> it could be the closest in the country since it returned in democracy in 1999. >> this election has been anything but calm and trouble free. we have been following the story. christian, i guess the big
question is what happens after the votes are counted. is the result likely to be accepted by the candidates, especially the person who doesn't win. and is there a chance of post-election violence? >> reporter: hi, zain, as you said, the vote was certainly not trouble free. there were sporadic glitches and some violin, but the real question is not can nigeria hold an election, but can it hold a close election, and this is shaping up to be probably the closest election in nigeria's history. we might hear the results today. hopefully tomorrow. and it's pitting the incumbent president against a retired general. and the real question is, will whoever loses this election accept defeat, whether it's the ruling party or the opposition. the hope is that this fragile democracy will prove that this country can hold this sort of
close election. but the worry is what happened in 2011 after the last election, zain, when the opposition lost the election and some of its supporters went out into the streets and over 800 people were killed. so it's an extremely exciting time but extremely concerning. >> and i guess leading up to this, it has been more peaceful than people had been expect what happens in the next winner is announced, whether it is good luck jonathan or his opponent, how much will every day life change for nigerians? >> reporter: as long as the election goes smoothly, obviously, the next step is what happens next for whoever wins. that really is the big question. there are enormous challenges facing this country. one of the largest oil-producing countries. and with the prices of oil dropping, the country is under
severe stress. most nigerians get very few hours of electricity if any electricity in the day. the security concerns with boko haram waging in the northeast. so whoever comes in next is going to have enormous challenges to try and fix these problems. and i think that's really the big, key question here, whoever wins, what are they going to do to fix these problems. and neither candidate has really come out with key policies but more general statements as to how that's happened, zain. >> and of course the winning candidate has a massive task as you mentioned, especially when it comes to unifying the country, beyond just the north/south divide. you're in my home country, by the way. glad to see you. thank you, christian. the dangerous recovery continues notice french alps for the victims of the germanwings crash. coming up, we'll bring you a live report on what's being done to help crews and the victims'

i'm zain asher. a german tabloid has pieced together the final moments of germanwings 9525. the report includes frantic words from the captain locked out of the cockpit as he begs the co-pilot to let him in. we could learn the result of the nigerian president election. elections stretched into sunday after a deadly attack at a polling station and a series of technical issues. 55 million people went to the polls. some waiting in line more than eight hours. houthi rebels say the saudi coalition is conducting daytime air strikes in sanaa. yemen's foreign minister says he
expects ground troops to be in yemen within days. recovery crews are hard at work at the site of flight 9525. construction crews are carving a path to make it easier for the rescue workers and families. this is a day when we're seeing so many reports. we've got pieces of information about the co-pilot's mental health being reported anonymously over the weekend. meantime you have the pains taking task of identifying victims' remains. %-p? >> reporter: errol, authority tauthoritys say they're making good progress. they've managed to identify human remains from 70 to 80 of the victims. i say human remains, because authorities say the impact of the crash was so great that not a single whole body has been
recovered from this site. human remains strewn over hundreds of meters, heavily fragmented debris. really treacherous conditions for the recovery. workers, we managed to speak to one of the pilots responsible for flying over the area, the area of course only accessible at the moment by air, and he says that he really sees this as his duty. he says that he's proud to be part of this operation. he sees it as his responsibility to help bring the human remains back to the families. now authorities say that the remains will not be repatriated until all of the dna work is complete. he said that process could take, it could take weeks. so an agonizing wait, potentially, for the families still ahead. >> absolutely agonizing, considering they first dealt with the plane itself disintegrating on impact, this grim news, and of course the remaining questions about why this happened in the first place. but the officials are trying to
do what they can to make things slightly easier for relatives of the victims. tell us about the road being carved out to help with all of this. >> reporter: that's right. this road is being seen as incredibly important, not just to the recovery effort, it could potentially allow vehicles to access the site, which could speed the recovery process along, but also to eventually be used by the families. the local mayor saying that many families have expressed interest in accessing the site. they want to be as close, they say, to their loved ones as possible. and he said that they've peppered him with questions. they want to know what the area's like in the summer. they want to know what the area's like in the fall. and he's assured them that it's a little corner of paradise. so in the meantime, while they're waiting for this road to be built, while they're waiting to be able to access the site, families have been coming to this area that you see behind he. there's a small memorial just
over that way. it's blocked by police vans right now. there's a plaque dedicated to the victims of flight 9525. families have been coming here writing notes and laying flowers. and locals have been affected. they want the families to come here and grieve. take a listen to what one local resident had to say. >> translator: it's unimaginable. but above all, i'm thinking about the families. the families, be they german or spanish or whatever nationality, they must not feel it's hostile. they have to know it's their land now, because there are bodies, or at least parts of bodies that will be buried in the ground, and they'll stay forever. so they need to come back. it will be good for them and for us too. >> reporter: one of the families who said they plan on visiting this area often is the family of paul bramly. paul was just 28 years old. one of three british victims on
board flight 9525. his father was here over the weekend. he gave a statement on behalf of the family, and he says he wants the cloud to be lifted from this area. he says that he wants the natural beauty of this area to be restored. he says he does not want it to be remembered for the actions of one man, a reference to the 27 year old co-pilot now accused of crashing the plane. >> the victims, the locals, the victims' relatives all wanting there to be some kind of respectful remembrance and have the focus on those lives lost and not the pilot himself. erin mclaughlin, thanks. now a commercial airline pilot says he's taking this story personally, lez arbend says passengers shouldn't have to worry about the mental health of their flight crew. read his column at cnn.com.
investigators are looking into whether heavy snow caused a flight to land short of the runway. the plane was coming from toronto, lost its landing gear before skidding to a stop. one of the passengers says he's just thankful everybody made it out alive. >> we were coming in pretty hard, and obviously, i don't think the captain realized just how bad the weather was down here. we could see land, but it seems something happened. it appears we clipped the power line. and all hell broke loose, and it looks like the engine snapped off. we slid for a while. and thankfully we're all alive. >> there were a total of 133 passengers and five crew members aboard. 25 people, including the two pilots were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. well, it is crunch time in switzerland. diplomating from six world
powers and iran have begun a critical round of talks. they have until tuesday to form a framework deal. >> and what do they have to show for it. u.s. diplomats want to curb iran's nuclear program. they say iran has to make tough decisions here in the coming hours. >> we're here because we believe a deal can be done. it's in everybody's interests that a deal does get done. but it has to be a deal which puts the bomb beyond iran's reach. can't be any compromise about that. so if we're going to get this done here over the next few hours, iran has got to take a deep breath and make some tough decisions to ensure that those red lines can be met. and i very much hope that we will have success over the coming hours. >> that's philip hammond there. benjamin netanyahu warns the agreement as he has in the past, could be a disaster.
>> we have more on the two key issues that remain unresolved. >> reporter: talks have intensified over the last 24 hours as they reach the end game. they're trying to find compromises and can seat contours of a deal. but the two thorny issues, sanctions and iran's nuclear research and development program still remain sticking points and could prevent a deal ahead of tuesday's deadline. iran is demanding all united nations sanctions be lifted right away. and there's still a gap on how much research iran could do on advanced nuclear technology while the deal's in effect. diplomats say iran wants to do much more than the international community is comfortable with.
israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu isn't comfortable with any of this. he says the deal shaping up is worse than israel's deepest fears. it's all unclear whether this will all come together before tuesday. but all sides say there really is a desire to try and strike a deal. everyone is cognizant of the fact that if there is no deal, congress, like it or not, could impose additional sanctions on iran as early as next month. and that could scuttle chances of any deal. elysse labott, cnn. now with protests building across the country, we have one u.s. governor's emphatic defense of a controversial law coming up for you. plus, was it racist when talking about who should be the next james bond. the former 007 pushes back against his critics, when we come back. you're watching cnn. well, a mortgage shouldn't be a problem,

a u.s. governor insists that a bill he signed into law is not about discrimination. >> but indiana governor mike pence is facing a growing backlash over the religious freedom restoration act. shasta darlington has more. >> was it a mistake to sign this law? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: indiana governor mike pence on the defensive over the new religious freedom law
sparking protests and boycotts. opponents say it will allow businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers on business grounds. pence blames the media. >> there's been a tremendous amount of misinformation and misunderstanding around this bill, and i'm just determined, and appreciate the time on your program. i'm determined to clarify this. >> reporter: it comes amid criticism from business. ceos from apple to yelp lashing out, and angie's list canceling a planned expansion there. the ncaa saying we are especially concerned about how this legislation could affect our student athletes and employees. former nba star charles barkley pouring on the pressure. i strongly believe big events should not be held in those
states' cities. but pence made it clear, he's not going to change the law or consider a bill making gays and lesbians a protected class. >> i will not push for that. that's not on my agenda. this is not about discrimination. it's about protecting the religious leader of every hoosier of every faith. >> yes or no, should it be legal to discriminate against gays and lesbian? >> george, you're following the mantra of the last week online. >> reporter: the white house quick to react. >> when you have a law like this one in indiana that seems to legitimatize discrimination, it's important for everybody to stand up and speak out. >> reporter: there are now 20 states with some form of religious freedom law on the books. but the blow back in indiana could deter others from pursuing such laws. shasta darlington, cnn, new york. now to some other stories
we're following. some of the hottest weather ever recorded in march took place this past weekend in the southwest part of the u.s.? >> yeah, our pedram javaheri joins us now. make us jealous and tell us where we should move to. >> areas of southern california, typically pretty temperate climate this time of year. march 2015 will be the hottest single month ever seen in san diego. should be 66 for this time of year. and they had 29 and what will be 31 days when the month is done, above the 66 degrees. >> they're baking out there. >> close to 100. i'll show you a chart here of san diego's temperatures. notice the yellow line, that's the normal line. it should be between 65 and 66. the red line is the actual temperature. notice the first couple days it was right at the norm. quickly shot up, and it has stayed above the norm so far for the three and a half weeks following that yellow line,
which indicates again for the normal temperatures. so this is san diego's temps. and look at what happened on sunday, death valley, the first place to get under 100 degrees fahrenheit, got there 102. that's a record. phoenix's 97 degree day. more than 27 degrees above average this time of year. third consecutive day they reached 95 degrees or greater. that has not happened this early nins the 1800s. look at this. palm springs shooting up for 100 again. yuma to phoenix, once again, it is spring training down across the southwest, and they're dealing with july-like temperatures into the mid and upper 90s. how about portland being warmer than san francisco. but want to give you a quick glance of what's happening across the western pacific. active heat. but a tropical storm maisuk,

a bus driver in the u.s. city of philadelphia recently got a very unexpected overnight rider. this 4-year-old girl! boarded a bus, alone, at 3:00 in the morning. the baffled driver called police, and they eventually returned the precocious child named annabelle to her family. >> quite an intelligent girl to do that. ann th annabelle woke up, got dressed and sneaked out on a mission.

listen. >> hi, kim. so first things first. did roger moore really suggest that idriss alba wasn't english enough to play james bond? >> yeah, very interesting, because people on the internet, people on twitter were very upset because there was this interview that roger moore did where he said the next james bond should be english english. so a lot of people took that to imply that he was talking about idriss alba, because that is who is being talked about as the next james bond possibly. and these rumors have been flying around for a while. and we know from the sony e-mails that were leaked that he's at the top of the list. well, roger moore put out a series of tweets addressing the people talking about this. and he said an interview i gave to paris match implies i said something racist about idris el elba. he says when a journalist asks
