the mailman goes rogue, flying through restricted air space to deliver a protest to the u.s. capital. a cnn exclusive from an bar province where iraqis are fleeing. and google facing a $6 billion fine from european regulators. auto r a warm welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. this is cnn newsroom. it is 1:00 a.m. in washington where investigators have spent the day trying to work out how a
gy gyrocopter pilot pulled off a stunt in one of the most secured areas in the united states. >> this is not good, people. >> that domed building, that's the u.s. capitol, the pilot, a postal carrier, says he just wanted to deliver letters to lawmakers. he says he announced his plan well in advance. but as tom foreman tells us, u.s. security forces did not get the message. >> i'm not suicidal and i'm not going to commit suicidal. i'm not going to fly into any monuments. terrorists don't announce their flights before they take off, okay? terrorists don't broadcast their flight path. thi terrorists don't invieft an escort to go along with them. >> those words are from an extensive video from the tampa bay times from the 61-year-old pilot well before his flight that ended in confusion, drawn
li guns on the state capitol. >> landed on the lawn, bounced once and sat still. the man sat still in his chair. one cop came down and started trying to figure out what was happening. another one came down and in about 30 seconds, there were dozens of police cars, a large number of men with rivals and running toward the man yelling don't move, don't move. >> nearby security forces seemed unaware of the craft until it touched down. yet hughes says he informed many warning the president of his specific intentions before he took off more than an hour outside d.c.'s air space. >> i'm going to violate the no fly zone for nobody to get hurt and i'm going to land on the capitol mall in front of the capitol building.
i'm going to have 535 letters strapped to the landing gear in boxes. and those letters are going to be addressed to every member of congress. >> the final moments were kab captured in this extraordinary video obtained exclusively by the associated press. hughes' website says he was prompted to take this dramatic action following the suicide of his son over unrelated matters. the pilot worked on this attention grabbing protest for well over two years, and in that time, he bought his aircraft, learned to fly it and plotted his path toward a daring dive at the capitol. now to iraq where isis has tightened its grip on ramadi. these images are from last friday showing members of iraq's rapid reaction force searching for isis just outside ramadi.
a u.s. military official says isis controls parts of the city, but the fall of ramadi, in his words, is not imminent. tens of thousands of refugees may disagree with that. they're trying to get out of the city in case isis takes over completely. anwar has this exclusive report. >> isis had just assaulted in the morning from the east. as a security measure, cars are not allowed to cross this bridge, but this is the only way to reach baghdad. those flees the violence piled this belongings. children and elderly into carts. samada ibrahim starts crying the moment we approach her. they took our homes and kicked us out, she sobs. for weeks, officials and forces in ramadi have been warning of
this. begged for reinforeman forcements and air strikes, but to no evade. and it's not just ramadi where people are pleading for help. between the bridge in ramadi is falluja. the police chief points out the isis positions. >> so isis is back in that tree line about a kilometer. we need coalition support, he states. he's been sending isis coordinates to the command center, but there have been no significant strikes or reinforcements. why? he doesn't know. isis attacks regularly. the hospital exterior scarred with shrapnel. inside, a tribal fighter shot by a sniper in this last assault on ramadi. the bullet just missed his heart. we didn't leave a single person. we didn't call and ask for backup, he says.
upstairs, a woman wounded in the town two days ago. >> i was identity in the garden and a rocket hill and the jap natural hit us. >> a few memberships later, isis attacks. >> just a massive explosion. it may have been a rocket or mortar of sorts. >> they think there's more. >> huh? there's more? >> yeah. >> the impact shattered the glass. more explosions in the distance and then another that shakes the building. they're clearing a way for us to get to the cars. >> we are lucky. we are able to leave and we don't have to make the impossible choice of living
under bombardment and isis terror or suffer the indignities of life as a refugee. and if help does not arrive, many more will end up like this. arwa damon, cnn. >> the united nations special adviser to yemen is stepping down. he has asked for another assignment as yemen's civil war gets worse. saudi arabia and others are increasing the -- because of unsuccessful peace talks with the rebels who now control much of yemen. a saudi linked coalition has slammed them with 1200 air strikes over the past weeks. on wednesday, the united states vowed the air strikes will continue. >> they have no choice but to give up their quest to take over yemen because they will fail. we want to make sure of this and we have been making sure of this.
there is no circumstance under which the current president will prevail in any way, shape or form in yemen. >> cnn's nick peyton walsh flew into yemen for a look at the situation in the capital. his exclusive report here in less than 30 minutes. a member of the ukraine parliament has been found dead. the ukrainian interior ministry says he was found shot to death in his home in kiev. he was an ally of ousted president yanukovych. a senior military official says he knew a lot about the movement that supported the president, suggesting it may have been the motive for his alleged murder. the interior ministry has opened a criminal investigation. ceremonies are being held throughout south korea, one year after the deadly fairy disaster. these are live pictures of a memorial service at a high school in the southern of seoul
and this is a high school where 250 of the 304 victims were oo teched. a ship went down last april 16th and most of the victims who were, in fact, high school students on their way to a field trip. and we have learned the south korean government has agreed to raze the boferry from the sea floor. what else? >> this has been a question for nearly a year, whether or not this ship would be salvaged. the families, many of them were pushing for it to be salvaged. there are still nine bodies that have not been recovered from the yellow sea. many of those families believe that they are still inside the ship. now then today on the year anniversary of this disaster, the president said it will be
salvaged as soon as possible. she said she's putting measures in place right the now to make sure that that can happen quickly. she says it is technically possible, just in recent days we had a report from the government saying that they believe the safest option would be to use a crane and a floating dock to try and salvage the ship. obviously, there are concerns that the ship could break up into pieces as it's being lifted, which is why they would use that floating dock. they believe it would be at a cost of backside 100 million, but the government is now confirming, through the president, that they will, in fact, go ahead with this salvage operation. so that will be welcome news for many families but, of course, it is a very somber day here after that disaster. as you see this, the memorial is about two hours away from seoul. this is the high school where the vast majority of the passengers were students. about 250 students, 11 teachers, lost their lives in that
disaster. john. >> and, of course, raising the ship will be important because there are still nine victims who are unaccounted for and this will be an ongoing issue for many of the families and many people in south korea. another ongoing issue has been this full, independent investigation, which was promised by president park in the days and weeks after this tragedy. but that hasn't even started. why not? >> well, there's been a preliminary investigation, but there have been many problems with setting up the official investigation. it cools the political stalemate in this country. there were no bills passed in parliament for about five months last year as they were trying to pass a bill that would outline, really, the framework of what this investigation would look like. now, the families, or some of the families, want this investigation to be completely independent of the government. they believe the government is to blame for many of what happened, the fact that the coast guard, according to investigators did not react quickly enough and could have
saved more lives if they had reacted quickly in those hours after the sinking. and, of course, the fact that investigators say this boat was overloaded. there wasn't enough water in the ballasts. these are things that were signed off on with a group that is affiliated with the government. so this is why families are so angry. they don't want the government to have any part of this. so this has been an ongoing process. we've seen protests for months now. we've seen some family members shaving their heads in recent days to show their frustration as what they say as just a stalling on the government's behalf. >> it's a difficult day, i can imagine, for everybody in south korea. thank you for that. in a little over two hours, sirens will ring out across israel as people stop to remember the 6 million jews killed in the hoalucaust.
israel vehemently opposes the deal made with iran. he warned against appeasing what he calls tyrannical regimes, saying the situation is similar to the run up to the second world war. american football star aaron hernandez now knows his fate. coming up, we'll hear which witness played a key role in the jury's decision. also ahead, the european giant google is wanted to pay up to $6 million in fines.
i care deeply about the gulf. i grew up in louisiana. i went to school here. i've been with bp ever since. today, i lead a team that sets our global safety standards. after the spill we made two commitments. to help the gulf recover and become a safer company. we've worked hard to honor both. bp has spent nearly 28 billion dollars so far to help the gulf economy and environment. and five years of research shows that the gulf is coming back faster than predicted. we've toughened safety standards too.
i'm sure you know what this meeting is about. yes, a raise. i'm letting you go. i knew that. you see, this is my amerivest managed... balances. no. portfolio. and if doesn't perform well for two consecutive gold. quarters. quarters...yup. then amerivest gives me back their advisory... stocks. fees. fees. fees for those quarters. yeah. so, i'm confident i'm in good hands. for all the confidence you need. td ameritrade. you got this. . to southern california now where crew is are battle ago brush fire just east of legislation. emergency officials say there are homes not far from all of this. it started out at 3w6 acres in size. but incredibly strong winds have now fanned the flames and the fire is triple in size. former nfl star aaron hernandez says a massachusetts
jury got their verdict wrong in convicting him of first degree murder. the 25-year-old has now begun serving a life sentence without any chance of pa ral for the killing of his former friend, odin lloyd. susan was inside the courtroom when the verdict was read. in a packed courtroom, aaron hernandez stunned, sits down and shakes his head no, pursing his lips and looking back at his mother and fiancee gasping at the news. despite his astonishment, he mouths to them, be strong and, i'm okay. and the family of victim odin lloyd, no lessee emotional, openly weaking and shedding tears of relief.. sentencing came a short time later, an opportunity for lloyd's family members to speak directly to the court and to hernandez. lloyd's mother, ursula, calling him the backbone of the family
and talked about the pain of burying her own son. >> i felt like i wanted to go into the hole with my son, odin. >> his sister, olivia, fighting back tears as she tell tess court, his murder feels like a bad dream. >> i won't ever see him again, but i have to go to his grave sight to look at his tombstone to tell him that i love him. >> and with that, hernandez is sentenced to lye in prisonment with no chance for parole, a fall from grace for the nfler who was under a $40 million contract with the patriots. speaking after the sentencing, the jury described how they were deliberate in their decision making and said one of the key moments was testimony from
patriots owner robert kraft. kraft testified hernandez told him he was innocent because the football player said he was in a club at the time of the murder. jurors didn't buy it. >> we still don't know the exact time of odin's murder, specifically, so i don't know how aaron would have had that information two years ago, even if today even medical competitors don't have that information. >> another big shocker, they say the bomb dropped by the defense team during closing arguments, that hernandez was at the crime scene, law lloyd killed, but did not shoot him. the jury deliberated for more than 35 hours over seven days and in the end say their decision was the right one. cnn, fall river, massachusetts. the european union has filed anti-trust charges against tech giant google which could result in ads 6 billion fine.
the eu says google favored its own websites over others who paid google to advertise on their site. >> our investigation so far has shown when a consumer enters a shopping related query, in google's search engine, google's comparison shopping product is systemically displayed prominent at the top of the search results. this display is irrespective of whether it is the most relevant response to the query. >> google says it strongly disagrees with the eu claims, plans to make a case in the coming weeks and in a blog post google says while it may be the most used search engine, people can now find and access information in numerous ways and
allegations have been proved to be wide of the mark. foor more on exactly what google may have done wrong, damian joins us now from washington. he's a la professor specializing in anti-trust law. let me get this right. it is not illegal to have a monopo monopoly, but it is illegal to use that monopoly to crush your competition. is that what they're claiming? >> once you have a monopoly, you cannot abuse from that monopoly. and the offense that google may have committed is a so-called abuse of a dominant position. >> so why is this an issue in the european union and not an issue in the united states? similar cases were essentially dismissed. >> right. i think it may be more of an issue in the european union for
several reasons. i think first of all the market share of google in the european union is significant in items of search it's about 95%, which is more than in the united states where i think it's like 65% to 70%. so there's a difference. secondly, the european authorities are more interventionat when it comes to single term. they tend to be more aggressive enforcers and that explains the difference. >> google has ten weeks to respond to this. if you were advising them, what would you tell them? >> well, of course, they have excellent lawyers and i don't think they need my advice. i think i would basically advice them to look at the facts very closely. at the statement of objections which is basically a list of objections that the commission has. against their practices. and then to raise the best
possible legal arguments. its narrow of law, abuse of dominance, that is in flux. so there's certainly good arguments that can be made. >> do you have they have a good chance of beating this, of walking away from this without some kind of penalty? >> well, it's very hard to tell. it's a very advanced investigation. so when you get to the statement of objection, it's very hard to avoid an infringement decision. but, of course, they will certainly put forward a very strong dchgs and then, of course, they can propose so-called commitments. they proposed commitments in the past. it didn't work out. i think the commission considered them insufficient. but maybe they will be better off to settle the case. but the situation is, of course,
curious. >> what are the broader economic issues which may stem from this case? >> well, of course, there is always concern on this side of the atlantic that the european commission may wish to try protecting european corporations that are less successful than koogel. but i don't think it's the case. the commission is a very toughen forcers. that is true for american companies, but that's also true for european companies and we should not forget that in this case several of the complainants are american corporations. so i don't think that it should be seen as a political case. i think it's a legal case. there have been cases like that in the past. there will be more in the future. >> damian, we shall leave it there. thank you for walking us through it. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. it was a rough day for mario draghi, the president of the
european central bank. he was giving journalists in frankfurt a briefing on wednesday and then this happened. >> will underpin the firm -- >> she was shouting end the ecb dictatorship. before security guards took her away. the radical feminist group for men said they were responsible. draghi later returned to finish the news conference. she did not. still to come here, the people in yemen are in desperate need and our exclusive report condemning aid in the capital. also ahead, immigrants arriving by sea. we'll look at the risks immigrants are taking trying to find a better life in europe.

the yemeni capital and is being used for these vital supplies. this is a country so many of whom do not have food or water and whose injured are badly in need of medicine. this from unicef, frankly, a drop in what is needed. this is where it has to get, little zarah, whose parents brought her to hospital because she wouldn't stop crying since the bombing began. the dead here, neighbors went alive and lying close still here. the only hospital they could be brought where medicine is scarce. this is a large factory complex where the bombs fell repeatedly in early april. one thing a bombing campaign can't avoid is to anger those it hits. and these are ordinary yemenis, still, regardless of their sympathies.
37 people were killed here, he says. this is a crime. what was the storage facility going to do for them? all this is to ruin the yes, ma'ammy people, he says. we say to the saudis, this is the safety you're providing to the people of yemen? here, near the capital, there have been two attacks locals say. the it's is assisting in targeting. saudi arabia says it is avoiding civilian casualties, but hundreds have died. locals say there were no military targets here as they pick through the remnants of their lives. they came with bombs, he says. down here in the dust, they win

people have died just this year trying to cross the mediterranean from north africa. still thousands continue to risk their lives, hoping for a future free from civil war and political chaos. >> crammed into rescue boats, these are the lucky ones, saved from their overcrowded and often flimsy vessels. men, women and children, even a baby girl born during the perilous crossing. recent days have seen a massive upsurge in the number of migrants attempting the journey by boat from libya to italy. according to the italian coast guard, almost 10,000 migrants have been rescued since friday. others were not so fortunate. at least 10 people are known to have died. and save the children believes a further 400 could have drown after their boat capsized on tuesday. the number of migrant deaths in the mediterranean in the first three months of this year was
more than 10 times the same period last year. prompting fears that 2015 could turn out to be the most deadly on record. last year's total of about 3,000 lives lost made it the world's most lethal border crossing. many of those attempting it are refugees fleeing war or turmoil in syria or somalia. increasingly, people from west africa are joining them. they often have to pay people smugglers thousands of dollars for access to the boats. libya has become the most popular jumping off point for migrants, with smugglers making the most of the power vacuum in the war-torn cup. they often reach sicily or malta first. small islands which struggle to cope with the influx. most rescues in recent months have fallen to the italian goet coast guard, navy or commercial ships, this after the european
union cut its budget for the frontex mission which patrolled italian coastal waters. italy, along with aid groups and the u.n. are now calling for more international support to avoid a catastrophic loss of human life. and as better weather approaches, and the migration season gets into full swing, the flow of desperate people is likely only to get worse. >> and while italy struggles to cope with a surge of migrants from north africa, when we come back, we'll go to south africa where they've grappling with an anti-immigrant violence that has forced thousands to flee their homes.

possible reasons behind the violence. >> heavily armed police attempt to quell the violence as mobs armed with machetes and firearms turn on foreigners. the anger likely fueled by the high unemployment rate and that 25% of the population out of work, locals have accused new arrivals from other african neighs of taking their jobs. in a south african port city of durbin, two foreigners and three south africans have been killed in clashes, including a 14-year-old boy who was shot. south africa's president has condemned the violence asking his cabinet to address the issue. jacob zuma told local radio station sa fm that we cannot accept when there are challenges we use violence particularly to our brothers and sisters from the continent. i think this must now stop because we cannot continue killing one another. >> i used to think that south africa was a good country.
