been open all over the uk. the general election voting in the general election gets under way. millions of people are expected to turn out at more than 40,000 polling stations. i'm here on the south bank of the river thames overlooking the houses of parliament. want to cross live to our senior international correspondent, nic robertson, outside one of the many polling stations here in london. nic, we saw a steady stream of voters behind you last hour. how has the the traffic been since then? >> it has been continuous and steady, errol. i wouldn't say there has been a big rush of people coming here. but there is people been going in and out all the time. most of the people we are seeing here this morning. look like they're on the way to work. a couple of -- young girls voting here. seemed to be with their mother. st stopped to take a photograph outside the polling station. appeared their first time of voting. steady here. the weather.
i think the lon done adon area voters' side if you will. rainy day. tend to put voters off. to date weather seems fairly clear. predicted to be clear most of the day. not wafrment trm. we will see more people in the next hour. people around here, about half-hour commute from here. to the center of london. i think as people get up in the morning. get on their way to work. dropping in here to vote. quite's steady flow here this morning, errol. >> there are specific rules to be followed. the uk takes voting very seriously. broadcasters like cnn and others under strict restrictses not the to discuss any issues as to not impact the outcome. at the polling stations, voters aren't allowed to have any campaign shirts or anything. you mention people there taking
pictures. selfies not necessarily banned. they do try and keep this a clean and smooth procedure. >> they do. and it's absolutely designed not to influence the -- the voter in any way -- on the election day itself. what we can say about this particular constituent see, in 2010. this was the tightest vote in the mainland of the uk. 42 votes separating in the 2010 election. so you might expect that the turnout here would be -- would be -- higher than perhaps -- the average people realizing their votes will count. but, certainly, in the terms that are laid down -- for the -- for election airing in the uk. there its to be nothing on the day of the voting. that would allow any, influence, one way or another to one particular party or another. not of the vote, errol.
>> one of the many polling stations will continue to connect with you live throughout the day. we want to show our viewers, new video just in to cnn. ed miliband. abiding by his duty as well. heading to the polls. he lead the labor party. he was seen out, with his wife. just a short time ago. also -- moments ago into cnn. video of nigel forage who leads the independence party as well. handing out to the polls. cnn and broadcasters under strict restrictions what we can/cannot discuss not to outcome the election. polls will be open here until 10:00 p.m., british summertime, 5:00 p.m. eastern. until then we will show you the process of voting. but once polls close, we will begin to get the returns.
and see which way the election will go. a very exciting day all over the u.k. rosemary back to you. >> most certainly its. thank you, errol. want to return to oklahoma sitty in the u.s. first time ever, the national weather service, declared a flash flood emergency. they warned people not to drive. calling it a deadly and dangerous risk. this comes after a long night of tornados and thunderstorms stretching across several states. emergency officials counted more than 40 reports of tornados so far. around 46 in fact. oklahoma city was the hardest hit area. at least 13 people were injured there. three critically. homes, businesses have been destroyed or heavily damaged. officials across the midwest are still trying to assess just how much damage the outbreak of tornados did. and as the severe weather threat diminishes overnight. a new threat emerges. we mentioned it there.
flooding is our new concern with the slow moving storms. derek van dam joins us. doesn't cause very much water to cause problems for any one in a vehicle does it. >> one foot of water can float a vehicle. two feet of rushing water can pick up a vehicle as heavy as an suv and carry it downstream. imagine when we get this flash flooding event. on going in the oklahoma city region. people need to be concerned about crossing flooded roadways. doesn't take much to lift the vehicles. that is the leading cause of death in terms of natural disaster. just in front of heat related deaths as well. some of the footage out of nebraska. flooding has been a concern. from oklahoma, through nebraska, and into kansas. because we have seen the storms move over the same locations. meteorological term for that is training. storms moving over one region with heavy rainfall.
oklahoma city broke a 75-year record in terms of rainfall. in a two-hour period over five inches. in total. 25 hours. it was a third rainiest one day period. 7 inches. little over 7 inches. look towards tornado shelters to seek safety from tornados. unfortunately the saturated ground from the flooding raised and unearthed this shelter in someone's backyard. not something you want to see when you are going to look for shelter from, tornadic events. you can see where the heaviest of rainfall occurred. interstate 35, oklahoma city. 7 inches of rainfall in 24 hours. we had our tornado threat. diminishing quickly. lost the heating because of a son. may, the most amount of tornado thousands in the united states in terms of averages.
wedge tornado caught on camera, one of 46 took place across the -- even a tornado in eastern colorado. that weather threat. for basically the same locations. as the we look into the weekend. saturday. probability of enhanced severe weather threat. more tornados, wind, hail, wind damage. >> heads up. a real concern for everybody. of course. many thanks. all right. back to you. >> rez manother big story we ar following. learning more about the actions of co-pilot andrea lubitz. accused of smashing his jet into the french alps. they believe the crash was intentional and prepremeditated. a month and a half after the crash the report into the
incident seems to shed light into the planning, co-pilot, he did before steering the jet into the french alps, the initial findings indicate that lubit practiced the crash during the flight. >> reporter: it appears it was a dry run for what he would do later the same morning on board the plane during flight 9525. lubitz waited until the captain left, locked the door, set it to 100 feet. directed the jetliner into the mountains killing all 150 people on board. awe thought was cnn aviation and increase to the maximum value of 49,000 feet and stabilized again at 35 feet.
neither air traffic control nor the captain noticed irl ed irregularities in the plane's flight. they believe that's because it was in the process of descending when lubitz played with the controls. the captain didn't notice anything because the action by the co-pilot during the outbound flight was made during a normal programmed descent, so it didn't have any impact on the plane's trajecto trajectory. lubitz crashed the jet on the next flight. german police discovered he researched suicide methods and the locking mechanism of the cockpit door on line. the interim hort also air traffic control attempted to contact flight 95251,11 times on three frequencies before it crashed. lubitz never answered calls or reacted to the captain banging on the cockpit door in vein as he steered the plane to its tragic end.
wow. now french investigators still have more work to do. they examine this deadly crash. we'll hear more from the director of the french agency, leading the investigation, later this hour. >> errol, u.s. officials believe a top isis hacker may have recruited or at least influenced the two shooters from sunday's attack in texas the after the attack, he left an ominous message. cnn's pamela brown has the latest. >> you ain't seen nothing yet. this tweet thought to be from janade hussein. hacker and recruiter. one official tells cnn, hussein is a real problem and could be inspiring other americans to launch attacks. >> he has been somebody that they scan follow, they could get

medical gear. the u.s. plans to train 5,000 moderate rebels per year. the president of the coalition of opposition groups says that is simply not enough. listen. >> -- too small. we need to include much more fighters. we have capability to fight against the terrorism and against the, the terror led by the syrian regime. but we need to include much more fighters from the fsa and this program and we, we need to, to have it much more faster. and we need protection from -- from the -- the air attacks of the regime. >> meantime, in iraq, isis controls parts of the massive oil refinery. it hasn't been operational for some time, but it still is important. logistically, of course, it sits along the key route to the city

he actually proposing here? the houthis are expanding. yesterday they took control of the strategic aden province and killed the top military leader there. so this, this will not be solved militarily. there need to be dialogue. and there are sides right now working, especially with the u.s., western countries, and the u.n. trying to reach a solution or peaceful solution or at least the start bringing the side back to the dialogue table. and issue that yemen solved politically. and not militarily. >> all right, hakim al-masmari joining us on the line from yemen. many thanks to you. errol. >> rosemary in baltimore,
maryland, a possible set back for prosecutors there with word the police investigation into freddie gray's death does not support some charges filed against six police officers. and that include the most serious charge -- of second degree murder. this comes from officials familiar with the police investigation and a separate one by the state attorney. cnn's evan perez reports on what this could mean for prosecutors. >> reporter: we are told that the investigators at the police department were under the impression that the medical examiner's findings were going to be short of a home sigh. if you recall that's one of the key findings from this state attorney. their lynn moseby. she said a ruling from the medical examiner. let her bring the most see r serious charges. we are told the police investigations do not support the serious charges against the
officers. that is a second degree murder charge. most, what they're looking is manslaughter. the medical examiner's office has told us that they only reached one conclusion in this case. that this was a homicide. >> meanwhile, lawyers for two of the officers are challenging another key finding of the prosecutor's case. a dispute over freddie gray's knife. cnnathena jones brings us this part of the story. >> reporter: was freddie gray's arens illegal. part made by the charge of six baltimore police officers in his death. >> the blade of his knife was folded into the handle. the knife was not a switchblade. and is lawful under their land law. >> reporter: which is why mosely is charging six of the officers with false imprisonment and argues grape should never have been arrested in the first
place. and arresting officers say moseby got it wrong. in motions filed with the district court. they stay the knife was illegal under maryland law. and demand the state produce the knife to prove they're right. neither lawyer would speak on camera about pending litigation. >> according to maryland state law a knife is illegal if the blade deploys with the push of a button. without manual assistance. legal. illegal. comes done to a spring. >> essentially. >> this is the one that kind of gets closer to what you call a switchblade. automatic. you have a spring, it is open. bang. >> it is unassisted but legal. >> if successful the knife argument could derail the case against the prosecutors who says a prosecutor, criminal of the charges and how quickly filed them. if the knife is illegal those two arresting officers will be
completely exonerated. >> her whole case depends against those two. depend upon an illegal arrest. >> the mayor is calling for the justice department to investigate the baltimore police department to tell them whether they have violated residents' civil rights. >> i'm asking the department of justice to investigate. if our department has engaged in practices of stops, searches or arrests that violate the fourth amendment. >> similar doj, found sear just civil rights violations. attorney general, loretta lynch is actively kidding whether to open such an investigation. athena jones, cnn, baltimore, maryland. now it is election day here in the u.k. coming up -- wear's goi're goinl back the curtain so to speak. we'll give you a behind the any look, of this very important

as part of an exchange program. but his official tour of duty ends saturday. rosemary. >> all right, many thanks, errol. back to you in a moment. with just an hour to spare, before the deadline, benjamin netanyahu announced lates when day he succeeded in forming a coalition government. made up of the minimum he need to govern in the parliament. netanyahu's likud party pulled it off by the slimmest of margins with support from several parties. mr. netanyahu had six weeks to form a government after the march 17th elections in which his likud party won 30 seats. he is now heading for his fourth term as israel's leader. >> chile's president says she has asked her entire cabinet to resign. the announcement was unusual coming during a live telecast instead of from the presidential palace. michelle barcelat's resignation
rocked by a corruption scandal by her son who allegedly received special treatment on a len. her approval rating is now at an all-time low. errol. >> rosemary, here in europe, french investigators released a preliminary report with chilling details about the co-pilot, andreas lubitz's actions he rehearsed the controlled descent of an outpound flight germany to spain. investigators say on the return flight, the same morning, lubitz intentionally slammed the plane into the french alps what we all feared wasn't it? the direct or of the agency investigating the crash says now their investigation will focus on lubitz's mental fitness. he speoke to richard qwest.
>> we have a very good understanding. there may be a few details we want to further investigate. but we probably will not go very far on that. that wis nol change completely the flight. now what we want to dupe is, to, assess the situation, where -- in aviation there is sophisticated system to assess the medical fitness of pilot including psychological fitness. and we see that we have several, not only this one, where the pilot was the passenger and he had the intent to destroy the aircraft and then himself. so we are are wondering how can this happen? how did this happen? in terms of the german wings. who else -- may have information about that. so weimagine, prior to the
flight, the family of the pilot may have some knowledge something was going wrong. and it might also have information. there might also be a doctor -- treating the -- the pilot, possibly. >> does this mean that ultimately the final report and the investigation since the facts are now relatively well known, that the final investigation is going to look at the psychological impact and results for pilots. >> yes, how can it be detected. how is it deficient. what is the limitation of this. both in terms of the medical capability and in terms of restoration of information for reasons, protection of privacy. medical secrecy and things like that. >> richard qwest reporting there. >> we are getting a rare look
inside north korea's reclusive government. will ripley reporting from pyongyang this week. he was able to speak to a political analyst with close ties to kim young un's regime. >> reporter: north korea's propaganda machine turns out plenty of fiery rhettic. high level officials fiercely distrust international media. rarely giving interviews. a member of north korea's inner circle speaking to cnn. the deputy director of a north korean think-tank with close ties to the highest levels of government. no topic was off limits. >> south korea's national in tee intelligence service, that kim jung-un ordered 15 officials. >> the report itself is ma lsh lsh -- malicious slander. >> he calls allegations the
supreme leader is killing off opponents. baseless, groundless, but does not deny executions do take place here. >> it is very normal for any country to go after hostile elements and punish and execute them. >> we also asked about north korea's growing nuclear program. much of the international community considers pyongyang's arsenal a threat to the region stability. you are equipped with nuclear weapons. he will continue to improve our nuclear arsenal. as long as we are under threat from the united states. >> does north korea have a long-range missile, capable of striking the mainland, united states. >> yes, of course. >> would north korea ever consider using that weapon? >> we may use them if we are forced by the u.s. to do so. >> the north clearly undeterred by u.n. economic sanctions. pyongyang also at odds with the international community. on a recent u.n. report, alleging human rights abuses based on testimony of defectors, who claim the north has a
network of brutal prison camps. we don't have political prison camps because my society is a society where we have no political strive, factions or, political division. as a result, we don't have the term political prisoner. >> the in north korea you do not hear dissenting views. in interview with every day people or state run media. most north koreans have no access to the internet. park says the country is making strides in technology, science. and education. students are required to finish 12th grade. college is free to those who pass rigorous entrance exams. the focus now, improving north korea's struggling economy. >> they have now advanced in many different areas. we are a major power. politically. the last remaining objective is to make it a strong economic power. the living standard for north korea, 25 million citizens means the nation must improve ties with the international community.
with mutual distrust. and pyongyang's consistent refusal to disarm the arsenal there appears no clear path to moving forward. will ripley, cnn, pyongyang, north korea. the report is out on american pro football's deflategate, no smoking gun, but there is a lot of fing finger-pointing. ahead how new england's coach is responding. we're back in a moment. yoplait greek 100. the protein-packed need something filling,

a warm welcome back to everyone. we want to turn now to deflategate. the scandal that rocked american pro football. some accused boston's team of deflating game balls, giving their quarterback an unfair advantage. the nfl's report on the scandal its out now. and as gary tuchman explains, it takes aim at quarterback tom brady.
>> reporter: prior to quarterback tom brady leading his new england patriots to a super bowl victory over the seattle seahawks, he was asked by the press if he was a cheater. >> i don't believe so. i mean i feel like i have always played within the rules. i would never do anything to break the rules. >> reporter: asked that after allegation he's knew about using deflated footballs in the afc championship game. a deflated ball can be easier to throw. >> i didn't have any, you know, i didn't alter the ball in any way. i dent want any one rubbing them, putting any air in them, taking any air out. i have no knowledge of anything. i have no knowledge of any -- wrongdoing. >> reporter: today an investigation ordered by the nfl said something else. the 243-page report declaring brady was likely at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities. and what were those inappropriate activities? the report stated it is more probable than not that jim mcnally, the official locker room attendant for the patriots
and an equipment attendant participated in an effort to release air from patriot game balls after the balls were examined by the referee. no other players, coaches or officials have been implicated. there is no smoking gun but evidence of videotape of mcnally removing game balls from the officials locker room and text messages in which they talked about brady's unhappiness with the inflation levels of patriot game balls. after a game earlier in the season the report indicates that mcnally texted this. tom sucks. i'm going to make that next ball a blanking balloon. and he responded, talk to him last night. he actually brought you up. and said you must have a lot of stress trying to get them done. couldn't the two men have done all of this with tom brady not knowing. the report states, we believe it is unlikely that an equipment assistant and locker room attendant would deflate game balls without brady's knowledge
and approval. noteworthy in the roar, brady's lack of full cooperation with investigators. brady decleaned to make available any documents or information including text messages and e-mails we requested those limited to the subject matter of our investigation. when deflategate broke, many including patriots' head coach tried to blame weather or environmental factors for the football deflation. but we visit visit itted the wilson sporting good factory in ohio where all nfl footballs are made. employees there said no way. >> this ball will not leak unless you put a needle in it and let the air out. >> reporter: indeed that's what the report concludes is the likely scenario. owner of the patriots released a statement exclaiming to say we are disappointed in its findings which do not include any hard evidence of deliberate deflation of footballs at the afc championship game would be a gross understatement. robert kraft says the team will
accept the findings of the report which are expected to lead to discipline against the team and its star quarterback. >> i think you can go out and fry to be the best person you can be, deal with people with respect, honesty, integrity, have a high moral standard. >> reporter: a quarterback accused of violating what he says he stand for. gary tuchman, cnn, atlanta. >> we'll take a very short break here. but we are back in just a moment. stick around. and restores tooth enamel. it's an easy way to give listerine® total care to the total family. listerine® total care. one bottle, six benefits. power to your mouth™.
