10:00 pm
we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and all around the world we are covering two big breaking stories right now. riot versus rocked a major american city following the funeral of an african-american man who died while in police custody. and a rapidly rising death toll as well after the biggest earthquake to hit nepal in more than 80 years. we begin this hour with the
10:01 pm
latest from baltimore, maryland, city up in smoke following violent protests and looting. >> maryland's governor has declared a state of emergency and the national guard has been deployed. several cars as you can see from this video burning, buildings burning late into monday night. >> school students joined protestors in throwing rocks and bricks at police officers. at least 15 police officers have been injured. more than two dozen people arrested. people are question requesting. >> they have no regard for the safety of the people who live in that community. >> businesses were also set on fire up in flames and looted as you can see from this video inside the store here. this including this cvs pharmacy as well. the city's mayor ordered a city
10:02 pm
wide curfew beginning at 10:00 p.m. tuesday for one week. >> i'm a life long resident of baltimore. too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs who in a very senseless way are trying to tear down what so many have fought for, tearing down businesses, tearing down -- destroying property, things that we know will impact our community for years. >> the violence erupted shortly after monday's funeral for freddie gray. he's the african-american man who died a week after being arrested by baltimore police. for the latest, let's go to miguel marquez. miguel, what's the latest where
10:03 pm
you are? are the police even close to bringing the violence under control? >> reporter: there seems to -- police are in complete reaction mode. it's like triage duty here in baltimore for incidents like this. this is the area of gillmore homes. it happens to be one block from where that 25-year-old man who was laid to rest yesterday now, it's 1:00 a.m. now in baltimore. one block from where he was arrested about two weeks ago. he died eight days ago, was laid to rest yesterday in a very, very stirring ceremony. and this, this is what we've seen throughout the city all day and all night. it started in the afternoon at a mall about the time that mr. gray's funeral ended. the high schools got out at a mall near here. that's when high school students decided to begin taunting police and throwing rocks and bottles
10:04 pm
at them. and it just -- it turned into a conflict. police then responded and different parts of the city just started to taek off just like this. we saw everywhere that police went, as soon as they left, the rioters and the looters would move in and start ripping apart buildings, stealing everything that they could. at one point, we saw police cars were on fire for over an hour. fire department wasn't able to respond because of the danger. there was a cvs being looted for over an hour or two. when -- and then it was set on fire. when firefighters finally got to that cvs, rioters were throwing rocks at them. police had to move in to push -- >> looks like we've lost miguel's connection there in baltimore. he has been covering this story since it began early today. he's been following the
10:05 pm
protestors. as you can see, a number of fires still burning out of control across baltimore. we're also told that the national guard has been deployed. 5,000 have been requested. they'll be there to support police. there's very strict terms of engagement, if you like. it's not martial law. officials went to great lengths to point out that the national guard will be there to support the police. but they will be armed and in armored vehicles. we'll try and get back to miguel if we can. in the meantime, we want to get to the situation in nepal. nearly 72 hours now since the devastating earthquake. and the death toll continues to rise. more than 4,300 dead in nepal, tibet and india. >> this video shot by tourists shows the moment, this is the moment on saturday afternoon local time that a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit kathmandu. you can see birds flying in all
10:06 pm
different directions. the buildings there are swaying to and fro. there are huge clouds of dust rising up into the sky. all of this caused by the worst earthquake in nepal since the 1 1030s. the earthquake has affected 8 million people overall in that country. i want to go to new delhi live with more on this. give us a sense of how much india is doing in terms of aid to help those people in nepal. >> india is being really proactive. it's one of the first countries that gallon vaized into action within hours after the earthquake struck, india began getting personal together and sending supplies. it's been dubbed an operation for the hindi word for friendship. india has gone all out to help
10:07 pm
its neighbor. it has sent across several teams that are trained in emergency situations to help on the ground over there. it's also sent a lot of basic essential supplies, just supplies to help people survive. we're talking about food. we're talking about water. things that are really scarce in nepal right now. india has sent 22 tons of food. it has sent 50 tons of drinking water. it has sent blankets, tents. remember, people don't have anywhere to sleep. shelter is a real problem over there. many people are too afraid to go back into their homes because of these constant tremors and aftershocks that keep happening. some people simply can't go back home because their homes have been razed to the ground ever ground.
10:08 pm
the temperatures grop at night. so you need blankets. and another huge, huge and very urgent problem nepal is facing right now is that of -- on a medical basis. it needs help medically speaking. there are hundreds of thousands of people in hospitals. the hospitals are overflowing. our own dr. sanjay gupta, he's been on the ground in nepal. he has traveled to several war zones around the world. he himself has been saying that this is as bad as it gets. india has also sent some army field hospitals and tons and tons of medical supplies as well. in a new development, what india has been doing to help people out, not just its own citizens. of course it has been bringing its own citizens back. but it's also been trying to get citizens from other countries out of nepal and it's giving them visas so they can transit
10:09 pm
through india when they come out of nepal. >> as you mentioned, whether the hospitals in nepal can actually handle a devastation of this magnitude is a big question there. india is doing what it can to help. we're seeing help from china and pakistan and other bordering nations. kathmandu and beyond, many are mourning those lost to this earthquake. as sigh ran watson reports now, there are mass funerals underway for many of the victims. >> by the banks of the river, people pay their last respects. this is a hin due cremation ceremony. more than a dozen funeral pyres burning all at once. as workers stoke the flames, some shave their heads, a traditional show of mourning from children who lose their parents. alongside their father, this
10:10 pm
18-year-old and his 13-year-old brother just said good-bye to their mother. >> this is my wife. >> she is a victim of this terrible disaster. >> yeah. great loss for us. for our family. >> difficult happen to us. >> the embers don't even begin to cool before a new funeral procession arrives. there is a great deal of pain here. authorities are still trying to come to grips with the scale of the death and destruction. this is the grim dirty urgent work that is being performed all across this city. rescue workers with pick axe, digging through the rubbles of buildings like this. it was a seven-story building that housed a church on its
10:11 pm
fifth and sixth floors where tragically a prayer service was in session on saturday when the earth began to shake. the majority of the dozens of people who were killed here were in prayer when the building came tumbling down. a sad pile of rescued personal belongings lies next to the rubble. including a christian bible and a figure of a god. emergency workers find the body of another victim. she's taken away in a pickup truck. accompanied by loved ones who will mourn her loss. >> thanks to ivan watson reporting in from kathmandu. when we come back, we'll continue to follow the chaos in a major american city. we'll have the latest on the efforts to stop the violence and the rioting in baltimore.
10:12 pm

10:14 pm
humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. flo: hey, big guy.
10:15 pm
i heard you lost a close one today. look, jamie, maybe we weren't the lowest rate this time. but when you show people their progressive direct rate and our competitors' rates, you can't win them all. the important part is, you helped them save. thanks, flo. okay, let's go get you an ice cream cone, champ. with sprinkles? sprinkles are for winners. i understand. baltimore, maryland under a state of emergency, rioting and
10:16 pm
violence caused chaos throughout the city and it all follows monday's funeral of freddie gray, a young frame man fatally injured while in police custody. >> according to baltimore city council president, the looting and violence is the last thing the gray family wanted on the day they laid their loved one to rest. >> this is unacceptable. this is not what freddie gray's family wanted. they asked that there be no protests, marches, or anything of that nature today. and the organizers of those marches are not participating in what's taking place today. these are thugs who are seizing upon an opportunity to show their anger anddistrust and frustration at the police department. this is not the way to do it. >> brian, you're on the corner of north avenue and pennsylvania avenue in west baltimore. i know that's an area where
10:17 pm
we've seen a lot of looting. describe the scene now. it looks pretty calm. >> reporter: well, the police just got reinforcements here. we are along, as you said, the corner of north and pennsylvania avenue. the police just got reinforcements for this corner. just down a block away from here, there has been a lot of looting in that area. we also just got reports from the baltimore police that some of their units have been attacked along fulton avenue which is about a block that way. fire units have also been attacked responding to fires, car fires on the street. we were told that rioters threw cinder blocks and bricks at them as well. you have police units coming down the street. there's a fire unit now coming down and probably going to make a turn here to respond. there have been a lot of car fires set over the last couple of hours. and the latest that we've heard
10:18 pm
from the commissioner anthony batts is that at least 15 officers were hurt, six of them seriously. those six taken to shock trauma units in the baltimore area. a group of high school students got out of school on monday afternoon and started to move toward the mondawmin mall in northwest baltimore. that's where they attacked some officers and where some of the officers got injured. it's been going on since that time. i'll have john pan over here again as the police try to reinforce this area of north avenue. we were about a block or two that way. we saw a lot of looting going on and no police presence at that time. we saw a tavern being ransacked. we saw a liquor store being ransacked. so a lot of that has calmed down a little bit at this point. we're still told that fire units are being attacked by rioters. so this city is not out of
10:19 pm
danger yet. >> yeah, certainly not. we've got that curfew going to be in place from tomorrow at 10:00 p.m. we'll see what that changes. when you compare this to what happened in ferguson, what's your impression of how the baltimore police are handling this? >> reporter: well, the police have been kind of in a reactive mode because they have just not been able to get ahead of this violence. it's very hard to predict of course where the violence is going to pop up. it has cropped up a lot in this particular neighborhood, not too far away from where freddie gray was arrested on april 12th. this area over here, i can point to the cvs pharmacy has completely burned out. that was really a bad scene earlier. not far from here a police car got set on fire and burned out. the difference here is the police are still in reactive mode, not really getting ahead of the violence yet. still trying to catch up to the
10:20 pm
pockets of violence breaking out. >> okay. brian todd live for us there in baltimore. thank you. more of the political impact of what's happening, we're joined by van jones in los angeles. why is the violence and rioting in baltimore so much worse than what we've seen since michael brown and other cities that have gone through similar incidents? >> it's hard to say. it definitely is a different level of violence and property destruction than we have seen before. with ferguson, the police actually did fall behind the curve there when things did turn violent, but it was contained. it was actually -- you know, just there on a three, four, five-block area. this is a very, very wide footprint. what you have to deal with is that there is a powder keg in a city like baltimore, people really don't understand sometimes around the world, there are parts of the united states where you have literally third world levels of urban
10:21 pm
poverty. baltimore is a city like that. you also have a whole wave of young people, a big youth bulge in the united states. the unemployment rate for some of them is sometimes as high as 50, 60%. so you have a powder keg there. also the police department in baltimore has a horrible reputation and this killing seemed to be the straw that broke the camel's back because this young man, you know, he wasn't armed, he wasn't someone that was doing something horrible. but somehow he wound up with his back broken. you put all that together and you have a strong nonviolent protest movement over the past week. something happened today, we don't quite understand what it was. the younger group of people, high school students on their own decided to do something at a mall and out of that has come a conflict for that city. i think it's a wakeup call and
10:22 pm
should be a wakeup call. this could happen pretty much in any american city at this point when you have that same mix of poverty, young people that are disillusioned and provocations from the police that go unanswered. >> how long before the president has to make some kind of significant statement, not just about baltimore, but about the strained relations between so many minority communities in the united states and law enforcement? >> well, you know, i think he's made statements in the past. frankly, the statement he could make that would probably make the biggest difference would be to address the fact that we have a massive incarceration problem. michelle alexander, the american author, wrote a book. she lays out facts which i think shocked the world. the united states now, only 5% of the world's population, 25% of the world's prisoners. most of those people behind bars are young african-american,
10:23 pm
latino, often for nonviolent drug offenses. it's easier to get into jail than college in these neighborhoods. let's stop wasting genere ining. we don't do that because we're afraid to spend the money. you're going to spend a lot more money on the back end if things like happening right now in baltimore start happening all across the country. i'm very afraid we're headed in that direction. >> michael brown in ferguson, eric garner in staton island, eric harris in oklahoma all killed by police in the past nine months. what will happen when there's another similar incident, another black man shot down or killed by police? >> well, i hope that responsible action will take place to prevent that. often people say, well, you know, you're anti-law enforcement, the african-american community is somehow anti police. no, i think people are anti-unlawful police violence.
10:24 pm
any human system that does not have adequate checks and balance and oversight will tend toward corruption and abuse. that's why you have building inspectors. not because you hate all the construction workers. because we know if no one is overseeing these systems, they tend to go ward corruption and abuse. we do not have a national police service in the united states the way they do in so many countries. you have tiny little law enforcement agencies all across the country left to police themselves and all too often there's a culture of impunity that begins to develop where even the good police officers will not tell the truth about what the bad police officers do because they know no one's going to get in trouble but the whistle blower. that has to stop in america. i'm very, very concerned about where we're headed in the united states this year. >> there's not even a national register which keeps track of
10:25 pm
the number of people killed by police in this country. which i think most people would find just absolutely ridiculous. thank you for speaking with us, sir. >> thanks for opportunity. a little after 11:00 in the morning in nepal. rescue and aid workers are struggling with the sheer magnitude of the devastation on the ground there. thousands of people injured pouring into hospitals there. the death toll from saturday's earthquake has just surged past 4,300. 4,300 people killed in this earthquake. we want you to take a look at that very moment that the earthquake struck. >> this is cell phone video from tibet, shows the ground shaking, landslides. people screaming there running for cover. tibet has reported 52 deaths as
10:26 pm
a result of the quake. already underway throughout nepal to help the people who survived saturday's deadly earthquake. this is the co-founder of mountain madness, it's a u.s. trekking guide service. she was in the region, the everest region along with 26 nepal staff members when that quake hit. she talked to me about the feelings and the needs of the people in that area. listen. >> have been really upset and trying to reach family and gradually over the first day or so, most of them were able to make contact with their families and make sure their families were safe. but their homes have been destroyed, collapsed, caved in. both in the villages here and the ones further down. i think most people have some kind of temporary shelter, but they're out in fields in tarps
10:27 pm
and tents. so that's not sustainable even for the coming weeks as the monsoon approaches. they're going to need shelter. and potentially food. i'm not sure the food conditions further down. >> many of her staff members lost their homes in the earthquake and she's really dedicated to helping those people rebuild their homes and their lives. mountain madness actually set up a go fund me account to help rural communities andvil villag in nepal rebuild. time for a short break. when we come back, parts of a major u.s. city burning right now as riots break out after protests against police. we'll have more live coverage when we come back. rudy and i have a lot of daily rituals. namaste. stay. taking care of our teeth is one of them. when i brush my teeth, he gets a milk-bone brushing chew. just another way to keep ourselves healthy.

10:31 pm
i understand anger. but what we're seeing isn't anger. it's destruction of a community. the same community they say they care about, they're destroying. you can't have it both ways. >> that was baltimore mayor, maryland, violent protests and rioting have forced the governor to declare a state of emergency. all of the city's public schools are closed tuesday and the mayor ordered a city wide curfew at 10:00 p.m. eastern time starting tomorrow. this follows the funeral for freddie gray, the man who died one week after being arrested by police. >> we've seen rioters in the
10:32 pm
streets. at least 15 police officers have been injured. up to 5,000 law enforcement officials have been requested to beef up security around the city. a fire broke out at a construction site in east baltimore where a senior center was being built. it's unclear whether the fire is related to the riots. incredible coincidence if it is not. the pastor who owns the facility says he is sad denied by the violence. >> i haven't lost my focus. i haven't lost my hope. i've been already heartbroken. my eyes have been filled with tears because someone didn't understand that we exist in the community to represent to revise lize it. but now we're calling on resources to come back to see this as an opportunity to revive east baltimore and the city of baltimore. >> cnn anchor chris cuomo is on the ground in baltimore. earlier, he described what was happening around him.
10:33 pm
>> reporter: the people down the street to the left of where we are right now that are throwing bottles and different, you know, types of objects to try the hurt the cops. they're not firing bullets back. they're firing suppression bullets with the pepper spray. the clouds coming this way are a mixture of car smoke and the pepper spray that comes out of those bullets. there's bottles and things coming over the top. there's a couple hundred people in the streets across from us. most of it coming from the building coming down on us. now we're seeing a couple people taking off here. some of the guys got into the cars and took off. other people are just bystanding. that liquor store is on fire. there's a fire truck with us here on the way now. obviously the deal with the two vehicles on fire. what they've done here is maneuvered the officers out in front to create a barrier. they're moving the fire truck behind so they can -- pan to the
10:34 pm
right -- now here to deal with the two vehicles that are on fire on the backside of it. that's, you know, just auto smoke, whatever's burning in that car. there's the liquor store that's on fire. somebody literally just went in there and torched it obviously. >> baby. >> there's a baby coming out from the building next door. they're evacuating people. her baby seems to be okay. the officer's taking the child. seems to be with the other parent. now he's going back in to get other people. >> that was chris cuomo describing the sheer chaos that eru erupted. we will keep you updated on that situation as it develops. john? >> let's get more now on the earthquake in nepal. in particular, the situation at mt. everest which has been hit by a number of aftershocks leaving a number of climbers stranded. one of those climbers stranded, jim davidson. he is now at base camp. he joins us now on the line.
10:35 pm
you're one of the lucky ones who got the chopper ride back down to base camp. you must be relieved. >> yes, thank you. i am relieved. my colleagues and i were stuck at camp one for about 48 hours. organized a whole fleet of helicopters to pull us out two at a time. very stressful waiting. when we got on the chopper, it was a heck of a ride back down to base camp. quite relieved to be back down here at base camp. >> some people may not understand why only two people at a time in a chopper at such high altitude. >> we were at 19,800 feet. as a result the air is less than half as thick at sea level. the chopper has to work more than twice as hard to lift and also has to have extra power in reserve and the mountains, the winds are always changing. literally they would bring in a
10:36 pm
fairly full-sized helicopter. we had to bring about half our gear behind. there are no seat belts. there are no seats. you just crawl in, it's a very quick process. the idea is keep the chopper on the ground only about 20 seconds to save fuel. we jump in. they throw the two bags after us. you sit on the floor and the pilot flies through incredible terrain from 19,900 feet back to 17,000 feet. it only takes about six minutes and it is one scary ride. >> any idea how many people are yet to come down from the mountain? >> we started out with about 140 people there about 24 hours ago. at this point, i believe everyone is down, all climbers, guides. yesterday, they flew somewhere around 70 flights using four helicopters to pull most of us off. i believe the last two or three came off at about 7:00 or 8:00
10:37 pm
this morning. >> you're an experienced climber. if you look at the death toll, 17 people killed in these avalanches on ef kvereeverest. this must an incredibly sad day, what's happened on everest. >> yes rngs it is a very sad day. when we returned to base camp, we could see the tragedy that happened here in base camp and how hard the medical community and the guides all worked together to save people. of course we know there's a much greater damage and problems throughout nepal and elsewhere. our heart goes out to the people who have even more challenging situations than us. >> we're glad you're safe, we're glad your colleagues are safe. we appreciate you sharing your experience with us here on cnn. best of luck. >> thank you very much for having me on. >> we're going to take a quick break. shortly after arriving in nepal. our own dr. sanjay gupta was

the initial quake. without urgent medical care, many thousands more will likely die. >> we've made our way into one of the busiest hospitals in kathmandu. this is actually a lobby area. this is normally a lobby area. you get an idea how chaotic the scene is over here. this area over here, they've simply set up just for people with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries. it's very challenging. they don't have enough monitors. you can see over here, they actually are doing some procedures right at the bedside because there's not enough operating room capabilities. >> operations performed right in the hospital lobby. this facility so overwhelmed, dozens of patients are forced to wait outside until medical personnel can give them care. >> nearly two days after the earthquake, we're at the busiest hospital in this particular area. emergency vehicles keep coming in. we have patients either being
10:43 pm
rescued, finally found, finally making their way through the traffic and chaos. and these patients are the lucky ones. so many still out there waiting to be found. >> one of those lucky ones is 8-year-old salina. her grandfather explains to doctors that the family house simply collapsed on her. she spent hours in the rubble before being rescued. she's dazed, clearly in pain from injuries to her head. examining her cat scan reveals how dire her situation is. she has a fractured skull, a blood clot, and her brain is swe swelling. as a practicing naeuro surgeon, i'm asking to assist in the operation. the conditions and equipment available to us are more like what you'd find in a war zone
10:44 pm
rather than an operating room. but the operation is a success and salina will live. nepal's president is also a doctor. he says his country is facing a medical calamity never seen before and he asks for any assistance from the international community. there's no doubt nepal needs all the help it can possibly get. >> how soon this ends is unclear. as they bring in more patients from remote areas, it's likely the demand for these beds is just going to go up. at times they lose power and there's still the question of tremors. every time one happens, do you evacuate the patients, do you lever them here in the hospital, what do you do. it's a question they're trying to answer almost every single day. >> dr. sanjay gupta, cnn, kathmandu, nepal. >> remarkable tale of survival for that little girl. we have the operations director

10:46 pm
