that we'll bring it to you live. now let's get you new information out of baltimore, maryland, where a city wide curfew is in effect for the second night in a row. this after riots, shook the community earlier in the week. the police commissioner says, officers made 18 arrests wednesday. far fewer than monday night when riots began, and 235 were arrested. we have new information about the day freddy gray was arrested. he is the african-american man who died of a spinal cord injury in hospital. somehow, a week after his arrest. well "the washington post" now reports a prisoner who is in the police van with gray heard him bang against the walls of the vehicle. that prisoner believed gray was frying to trying to injure himself. the two men were separated by a partition. the prisoner couldn't see gray. police say they don't know if gray was injured during the arrest or later during the ride, but nay do admit he was not
buckled in. >> at this moment most of the protestoers in baltimore are adhering to the mandatory curfew. ryan young mhas more on what is happening overnight. >> the streets of baltimore are clear. officers, community members worked together to make sure the streets were empty after the curfew is in effect for a second night in a row. but there were very tense moments as you look at this, this is when they were trying to make sure the streets were cleared. you saw, different gang members, fighting in the middle of the street. and for a while, we thought things were going to explode. but community members once again, stepped up, were able to push the gang members out of the way off to keep the peace here. then we saw congressman walking in his neighborhood. st some where he spent 33 years of his life living in this neighborhood. walking along with people telling them to go home. make sure this remand a paceful night. officers have stood at the ready. but weren't needed tonight. in fact nothing needed to be done. the streets didn't need to be cleared. the community policed
themselves. ryan young, cnn, baltimore. you are listening and watching once again, this is coming to us from new york. protesters there shouting, shame on you to officers, officers in the street. hundreds of people there marched in solidarity. solidarity with those in baltimore. police arrested more than 60 people in this new york protest. cnn's alexander field was in the thick of the demonstrations in new york and filed this. protesters followed by police officers through much of the city, a lot of the night. started in union square. hundred of demonstrators coming together. they were there to express sadness and outrage over their events in baltimore. police were prepared for a large group to gather there.
they started warning people over a loud speaker if they obstructed the sidewalk or got into the streets. once the crowd started to move out of union square, into 17th street. police cut them off. intercepting them. making arrests. tensions running high as the crowd chanted, saying that they were showing support for baltimore, calling for justice for freddie gray, long line of officers following them throughout the city. often on foot, a lot of the times following a loon of minem and motorcycles. >> we heard the story of one of the officers involved in the arrest, in baltimore which, sparked demonstrations there the a family member of one officer who asked us not to use her name or show her face came to cnn wanting to share what the
officer said about what happened. and this person says the officer didn't ask her to approach us, but she believes it is the right thing to do. we know her identity, and relationship with the officer, but we have agreed not to disclose it. cnn's don lemon talked with her earlier. >> he believes that whatever happened to mr. gray happened before he was transported. >> did he hear screaming? was he in the back? they were saying he was in the back going crazy maybe, yelling, moving around? >> there was, he was irate. he was cursing. he was yelling. he was kicking. that's what was heard. >> what happened first. was he secured first. >> he was placed into the wagon with cuffs. he wasn't shackled. he was, shackled later in, en route to where they were going. because the he was irate. they had to stop. at that point, they shackled
him. but the officers that shackled him and the officers that placed him in the wagon, did not seatbelt him. >> he was never seatbelted? >> no. it is an unwritten, unspoken rule. that when some one is irate in the paddy wagon. you don't reach over some one that is, that is irate. because they still have a mouth that if didn't have a muzzle. so they can bite you. they can spit in your face. so, you have to get in close proximity to someone, in order to seatbelt them. >> it has been said that the police who are driving, the person driving the van, or that they will do it, they will, you know, give them a rough ride just because they gave him so much trouble being arrested sometimes is that true. did that happen in this case? >> how could they do that when the arresting officers actually have the call, like they call for backup, a paddy wagon isn't right there when they arrest somebody. they have to call for a paddy
wagon. that officer doesn't know what transpired before he got there. and he is not involved in -- in trying to -- chase this gentleman or man handle him. he is transportation. stow when he arrives, that's, that's, basically all that, that -- that he is supposed to do. >> don lemon speaking there with some one who knows one of the officers involved in the freddim. e gray arrest. we want to turn back now to our coverage of the earthquake in nepal. the official death toll is now more than 5,400. for more on what is happening let's bring in our correspondent, live from new delhi. there are thousand in the capital who haven't been able to get to their homes in rural areas to see how it fared. meanwhile they just want to get basic supplies, this is a, a horrible situation to be in. >> it is a horrible situation to be in. they're in desperate need of basic supplies like food, like water. blankets.
medicines. a lot have been camping in tents, on a football field, many have been sleeping outside on the streets now. what we are hearing there is are long lines of people, waiting to get out of kathmandu. people are frying to return home to their villages. and there are a couple of reasons for that. one is there is -- a high amount of frustration in kathmandu because people are angry, desperate. frustrated. simply aren't getting enough relief supplies. we do know there has been a massive international effort. aid organizations have been sending relief into nepal. hasn't been able to be distributed at the moment. there is a huge backlog at the airport, in kathmandu, relief supplies aren't getting out to people fast as they should.
people are frustrated in kathmandu. many are looking to leave kathmandu. if we aren't getting the help we need in kathmandu. we don't have a police to sleep. we might as well go home. remember many of the people who were in the city of kathmandu are people who come from surrounding villages to work in kathmandu. the main city. the capital city. a major source of employment. now, a lot of people are saying, well, you know what we, might as well go home. they haven't been able to connect with, with their families back home for many days because communication as you know is very patchy over there. cell phones work sometimes. sometimes they don't work. people don't have information about their family members back home. a lot of people don't know whether their homes in the villages are intact. fwhai whether they have been razed to the ground. the situation isn't getting better. they aren't getting the help they want. many are saying we might as well go back home. there are long lines of people now leaving the capital. >> and we knew, with only having a single runway at the main airport there would be backlogs.
we knew this issue would continue to rear its ugly head. we have to wait and see how they get that essential aid which is coming in from around the world out to those who need it. malika kapur, new delhi. let's find out what is going on, anwar damon and her team. trying to make it to the epicenter of the quake. she joins us live. tell what's you have seen, are experiencing as you try to get to the more remote areas. >> you are talking about difficulties in aid distribution. take a look at where we are. what you are seeing here, entirely local, civil society effort to try to get assistance to those people that have been trapped in their various different villages. up the mountainsides. we are down inside this valley. this is a local paragliding group started this is nsh tinit.
they tried to get aid. a four-wheel drive. allowed them to got out here. they set up a make shift medical clinic underneath this tent. a short while ago. a bab was bei a baby was being treated. her mother was dehydrated. therefore the baby suffering the consequences of that as well. villagers hatch beve been comin from either side. further remote areas to receive this very basic, rudimentary assistance. there its people, there are people however that are still trapped that need help. we just overheard a conversation happening between two volunteers. one of whom is an american, stacy backer from seattle washington. happened to be in nepal on vacation. volunteer. former pair medic, and fire fighter. volunteering here right now. a woman. pregnant woman who has sustained injuries because of the earthquake. in the vimage. two hours away. conversation we overheard was
how they were frying to figuree out if they could sort of set up a make shift landing zone for a helicopter. there is no way she can get down here in the condition she is in. they can't at this stage get up to her. this very much a local effort we are seeing here. people say -- that they're waiting for the more professionals to show up. they have been driving the roads and 4 x 4 vehicles. ever since the quake struck. sending information on to the larger organizations about the situation. on the roads. it took us in total, 8, 9 hours just to get to this stage. there were of course those torrential rainfalls that happened overnight. you do feel the ground tremoring. aftershocks still taking place. the danger right now. coming from landslides after the rains. the sun has begun to come out. these do tend to create ideal conditions for landslides. we were being told by some of
the volunteer whose are here. that's adding to everything. as well, at this stage. but as you can see this is within of the most remote far-flung areas. as you move farther up. we can't see them from here. but as you move further up on the other side of these various hills and mountains, those are where the hardest villagers are. earlier in the day, we saw a stream of people walking past us. we saw an older woman being carried by one of her relatives. they had come down from the village in the mountain. they had nothing left to eat. there was no assistance reaching them. and they decided to try to walk out. but this is the scene as it is at this stage right now. moving forward. told at a certain point. the road is closed off. one has to continue on foot. of course on the other side of where that road has been blocked off by a landslide. where the hardest hit, the
epicenter of the earthquake is hours away on foot still. just incredible to see that despite the landslides. the aftershocks. lack of aid being able to get to the rural areas, you have locals and tourists really pulling together doing what they can to save each other's lives. you said it took several hours to get where you are. you are not at the hardest hit place yet. did you see aid agencies along the way. are the efforts to go out there evident from your perspective? all the efforts we have seen. here, or trucks we saw coming by. other vehicles have four wheel drives. smaller trucks packed with aid. all seems to be the local efforts. yesterday, we saw ten friend on five motorcycles. they had driven, ten hours on the motorcycles.
some of the volunteers are telling us of a larger aid organization, are in touch with them at this stage. trying to figure out what kind of assistance is needed. conditions of the roads. how far they can get. what we are hearing at this stage. few things in this particular area that are particularly crucial at this stage. helicopter evacuations. injured people. sick, pregnant people that we have been hearing about that are just stuck. they can't get down. this is exactly what you were just saying there. this is people coming together at the most basic level. you have got the local paragliding group. you have medical people. people with medical experience. coming volunteering their time. you have locals hearing. throwing things into vehicle. a vehicle that can make it out
here. the big question a lot of people are asking. how long is it going to take for the more organized effort by the larger aid organizations that have more experience. and handling situations like this. how long is it going to take for them to actually be able to get out here. an eye opening report there for arwa damon. just past midday in nepal. you saw. shows to us. reveals. and areas we have not seen this past week. she approaches some of the hardest hit areas. in the region. arwa, we will let you go for now. reconnect with you. the team is able to give us updates throughout the day. reiterating what we heard from so many. medical supplies are in desperate need. the u.n. said there is more than a million children in desperate need of food. and indeed folks in the rural areas need protective tarps and need medical airlifts out of the region. it is still a serious situation for so many. we will continue to track updates on this story and bring you some of the world's other

the people who are leading this, but those, 14, 15-year-olds who were, mislead, misdirected. who felt lost. and who were, breaking out, speaking out, for whatever neglect that had gone through their lives. they deserve a chance to be engaged, to, for us to begin the healing. >> there is so much attention and emotion focused on thisser to that the arrest of a single activist in baltimore had social media buzzing. joseph kent was arrested live on cnn's air tuesday night. after the curfew went into effect. you see it happening here. his supporters got concerned when heap disappeared from the camera's vooiew and no one had seen him since. where is kent. he was jailed on ape curfew violation. kent's attorney spoke with him wednesday. >> what he did he went out of conscience. he went out and tried to settle

pain, frustration in kathmandu. along with that come moments of hope. as the the desperate search to locate more survivors pushes on. on sanjay gupta has more. >> reporter: we know the official death toll here in nepal went up by at least one to day. neighbors watched from nearby windows. still clinging to hope. after all, this 4-month-old baby was rescued after more than 22 hours under the rubble. alive with no apparent injuries. this man, was buried for up to 80 hours. rescue workers administered oxygen and iv drip while they spent ten hours digging him out. there is hope. everywhere you look. and there are reminders of the people who once lived and breathed in this tiny village. a child once happily sipping on their bottle or seeking comfort with the teddy bear pillow. a notebook. pictures. a family. a pair of shoes. they were carpenters, mechanics,
jewelry makers. and there are the survivors. old. and young. and ridiculously cute. just looking around the small little town outside kathmandu you get an idea of the type of people that lives here. the pride that day took in all things around them. this five-story temple built in the 17th century stayed standing when stow many of the surrounding buildings tumbled to the ground. the lovely smiling faces saw that as a blessing. yes, a blessing. even while the earth shook from its core. last saturday, at 11:56 a.m., a woman shouted out from her second story win dedow to alert everyone to the initial tremor. then she didn't make it out herself. she died trying to save others. >> they have been able to identify the person, this woman, she is 45 years old.

age the weather has made search-and-rescue efforts difficult following the quake in nepal. landslides in many places. meteorologist jared van damme is watching the weather. what are you seeing? >> errol, mount etch rest has behas -- everest, the highly publicized area we focus on. and the tremors and the initial earthquake. what about the smaller villages and some of the other locations that people are still trapped there. we actually scan not get camera crews or any one to actually report from the regions. these particular locations have seen rainfall that caused more and more landslides. that's going to continue as we go forward in time. this is the satellite. not too active at the momentable. we have reporters on the ground. in fact we spoke with them recently. they had on and off again rainshowers. that's street to continue. in fact some of our computer
models indicating anywhere, 30, 50 millimeters of rain. earlier this week, between a popular trekking area, between kathmandu, the national park and the region. take a look at some of the footage, coming out. this area. this will give you an exact idea of how difficult this area its to traverse at the moment. that is a landslide. over slipping across, a -- a road that, that takes you between two very remote villages in central nepal. you can imagine how difficult it is to, to navigate across something like that. and you give rain and you give, slides. mudslides like this. can you imagine just how treacherous and dangerous conditions are for search-and-rescue efforts going forward. heading back to my graphics. you can see that we have more rain scattered showers in the forecast for the valleys. mountain snow across the himalayans. this particular area is concerning. because this is a region that is very popular for trekking
companies. to take some international tourists along some of the best hiking in the world with highest peaks. weather forecast for kathmandu does start to clear out by the second half of the weekend. i am still concerned about the small, remote villages. and all the locations where it is extremely difficult to get to. in fact this is just a computer model indicating where we have our most susceptible areas to landslides between the region. that is susceptible area. >> that's what arwa damon said. just ahead the road she is on. covered by a landslide. it ends. that is, that is closer to some of the hardest hit areas. landslides are a big issue. derek van dam with the latest. thank you. we do have new information just in to cnn. nepal's government now saying it will reopen routes up mount everest as early as next week.
