>> how dangerous is this process? >> the room fills up with gas. corner of the building explodes. >> it's going tonight longest most stressful day probably yet. >> a serious set back for iraq as the key city of ramadi falls to isis. in the united states, a biker brawl in texas leaves nine people dead. and hear why nasa says this 10,000-year-old ice shelf may disappear in a few years. hello, everyone, i'm rosemary church. welcome to the viewers here her the united states and around the world. this is "cnn newsroom." thank you for joining us. we start in iraq where a major city has fallen to isis. after days of heavy fighting,
11:01 pm
the islamist militants seized control of ramadi. this video shows iraqi troops retreating from the area. ramadi is the capital of iraq's anbar province. until sunday one of the last cities still held by government forces there. ramadi sits just 110 kilometers west of baghdad. and a short time ago, journalist mitchell prothero told us the situation in ramadi reflects the dire state of iraq's military. take a listen. >> i'm not convinced there are many what we would say combat effective iraqi units available in that area at all. they lost three ridge meaegimen had been holding the country together. these giss ba guys have broken for it. shiaa militias, are two group of
11:02 pm
people that do not like or trust each other. and the shiaa militias have not shown ability to fight. they have done a good job defending areas from the islamic state but not successful at retaking sunni areas from the militant group. >> let's get more on this now. we want to turn to cnn's ian lee, he joins us live from cairo. so, ian, this is of course i huge victory for isis. clearly a massive set back for iraq. and the united states. we saw there iraqi forces retreating. they were elite forces in some instance as we heard. talk to us about how isis was able to take control of ramadi. >> rosemary the battle has been taking place since last june. unlike mosul where we saw iraqi security forces melt away. ramadi has been a constant battle between iraqi security forces and isis fighters. but this latest offensive by
11:03 pm
isis fighters saw suicide car bombs, followed by heavy push by troops, and we see in this video, in this video, this heavy fighting taking place. these bulldozers, armored bulldozers, packed with explosives, hitting the front lines. iraqi officials have said, almost nearly impossible to stop once you see these coming at you. and that's the advantage that isis has. they have been able to push out the iraqi security forces. we're hearing there are still pockets of resistance. within the city. but these people are fighting for their lives now. we know isis doesn't treat captives well. but leaving behind, know they have left armored vehicles, as well as the missiles behind really resupplying isis as well. this is a complete moral and propaganda victory for the militant organization. baghdad very concerned about it
11:04 pm
with ministry of defense falling for jihad to retake ramadi as we heard earlier. they're sending these shiite militias to take place. very controversial as we have seen in other parts of iraq. rights, abuses, taking place. they were able to take on isis and tikrit and push them out. although after a very intense slow battle there, secretary of state, john kerry also watching the situation. this its what he had to say in seoul. >> every single country in the region bar none is opposed to it and is engaged in fighting them. so i am confident about the longer road. yes there will be moments like yesterday in ramadi and there will be difficult challenges ahead. >> iraq's prime minister has criticized the united states saying they didn't get the air
11:05 pm
support they wanted. in the battle of ramadi. the united states saying they're going, they're, they are providing air support for the, to retake the city. when you look at a map, anbar province to the west of baghdad. ramadi the largest city there. it opens up a corridor from ramadi, and baghdad. isis isn't on the verge of taking baghdad. that is a very heavily fortified city. it does have iraqi officials concerned. rosemary. >> very important point to make there. given what we know so far. ian, how long is it likely to take iraqi forces and the militias you mentioned to recapture ramadi? >> well, when you look at the battles, previous battles, when iraqi forces and shiite militia in tikrit. there were talks it was going to fall within days. it really dragged on for weeks.
11:06 pm
and we are expecting that sort of same thing when they try to retake cities and anbar province. once you lose territory to isis, they are very skilled at roadside bombs, traps, making it very difficult to go in there, and, and get them out. and these are people willing to fight to the last man. which has slowed down iraqi troops in the past. and, when we see them going up against iraqi military, there really is no match there. so they do have to call in these shiite militias which are unpopular in these sunni predominant areas. mainly because of, rights abuses that we have seen in the past. so it is going to be very difficult for them to retake it. although with air support, and, with these militias, it is possible. but difficult. >> yeah, and will likely take some time. ian lee reporting there live from cairo. many thanks to you. well, isis is also raising concerns in the syrian city of

11:24 pm
engine controls and ordered it to climb. agents detained chris roberts last month after a tweet that discussed an aircraft cyberhack. it was already well known to investigators. cnn's u.s. justice correspondent, evan perez, explains. >> he said that he was able to hack air craft 15, between 15, 20 times, between, 2011 and 2014. and he says that one incident, where he was able to control at least one engine on the aircraft that he was flying on, and -- and caused this, the aircraft to make a lateral move. now, all of this is in this affidavit. we don't know whether or not any of this is accurate. the fbi is investigating. they haven't proved that he was able to pull this off. but we do know after the interview in april. after he got off a flight in syracuse. he tweeted that he was thinking of doing the same thing. and according to the fbi.
11:25 pm
they went and checked the aircraft on which he was traveling. and they found that there was some tampering done. i will give you a quick rundown. how he says, according to the fbi how he can do this. basically con tekting his laptop through an ethernet cable. to the box underneath his seat. that controls the in flight entertainment system. the system that we watch movies on. and music. and he says through that, that he was able to hack into the control systems for the aircraft. sunday, roberts tweeted he only wants to make planes safer. he also says the fbi has taken five years of his research and incorrectly condensed it. our aviation analyst, mary sciavo says she doesn't think roberts did what he says he did. take a listen. >> i personal low don't believe it happened the way the fellow
11:26 pm
thinks that it did. first if he was able to hack into engine controls or control the engine what would have happened. presumably during the cruising phase of fight where the autopilot was on. on most air crafts, pilots fly with auto pilot on all the time. any change of control of the engine, had he changed the engine would hatch caused the autopilot to go off and shown up as a mall function. and the pilots would write it up as squawk, or repair item in pilot log books. i don't think the engines were compromised. when you turn a plane you don't go side ways. you turn the plane, turns like, like a motorcycle in a banked curve. i don't think that really happened. >> and boeing has also cast doubt on chris roberts' claims. airbus has not commented. but preaviously said it had security measures in place. >> we'll take a very short break here. still to come, a look at what's in store for those left behind

warm welcome back to our viewers here in the united states. of course all around the world. i'm rosemary church. we want to update you on the top stories right now. authorities in iraq say they are preparing to send forces to recapture the city of ramadi
11:31 pm
from isis. the militant group took control there sunday after days of fierce fighting. ramadi is the capital of iraq's anbar province. just 110 kilometers west of baghdad. saudi led coalition air strikes resumed in yemen. coalition and houthi rebels in yemen mostly observed a five-day cease-fire to allow humanitarian aid to come in. the u.n. estimates 450,000 yemenese have been forced out of their homes by that fighting. in the u.s., police in waco, texas, are investigating a gunfight between several biker gangs which left nine people dead and at least 16 others were injured in that shootout. police say they expected trouble when the gangs arrived at a restaurant sunday morning. no officers were injured. all right, let's turn back now to our top story. the fall of ramadi to isis fighters in iraq. huge groups of civilians have
11:32 pm
fled the city at times being caught in the cross fire there. and just a shrt tiort time ago, robert bear, described what those left behind will face under isis control. >> it will be a bloodbath over the next couple days. all the soldiers captured will be executed. there is quite a number of them in many districts. not just the military command center. this group is at once a military force. well-organized run by bathi officers, former bathi officers. they nknow what they're doing militarily. and they're also a terror group where they kill large numbers of people to cause, you know,ette neck clean -- ethnic cleansing if you like. i think ramadi is lost for a long time and other parts of al-anbar province as well. what's clear to me, isis is enduring. it will continue to endure. there will be no offensive on mosul this summer or this fall.
11:33 pm
>> bob baer talking to cnn earlier. for more on the situation in iraq, want to turn to will getties, managing director of international corporate protection and global security firm. he joins us via skype from london. thank you for joining us. so, will getties, we know this is a huge victory for isis of course. a massive set back for both iraq and the united states. but how long do you think isis is likely to control ramadi once those increased iraqi forces are sent back in along with militia. we did see of course that those forces iraqi forces fled under those particular circumstances. but if they regroup, reenergize, and return with the shiia militias what do you think the outcome will be. >> that's where the crux of the problem is going to be. reenergizing as you say, iraqi soldiers. and troops to actually go back in there. by all accounts, they were so
11:34 pm
badly decimated, certainly by isis and by their tactics, within ramadi. we have to remember isis has got a considerable history now of fighting in, what we call, built up areas. they are very, very good. now in their taking of ra madma they use tactics. they launch a number against the military command there in ramadi. so i think there is a number of different issues here. whether the iraqi soldiers have the stomach. and there is this discussion obviously about bringing tribal troops in to support. >> that is the big question. isn't it? we heard that iraqi -- the iraqi authorities were saying that they had needed more help from the u.s. in, in terms of air strikes. if they had received that added help do you think we would be talking about ramadi falling to
11:35 pm
isis now? >> no. we know that there were a number of air strikes by the coalition leading up to the weekend. when obviously isis managed to successfully achieve taking over ramadi. so those air strikes as we know are only going to be effective to a limited extent. they're ogood at cutting off resupply. quite good at taking out isis positions on open grouvenlnd. we know, we see. in different towns, isis has taken. soon as they take occupancy of another town. it become is a whole different final the only we that one can combat that is by sending ground troops in. the whole air strike issue then becomes, redundant. >> right. of course we are hearing two of the reports of pockets of resistance. what do you make of those reports? who are we talking about here? how risky and provocative is it to draw in the militias in the effort to recapture ramadi.
11:36 pm
>> as we know, a lot of tension between the sunni and shiaa something interesting will be the consolidation and getting together of troops in many respects. they'll be fighting common enemy. ultimately they have got to look at putting to one side. maybe some of their, very old grievances. and some of those are well-founded. one has to look at immediacy of the problem.solidate and group together. may take further ground. as you said in the leadup of the interview. isis now are taking ramadi. only approximately 17 miles away from baghdad. a key position. and this does present some very serious concerns moving forward. >> yeah, it certainly does. will geddes joining us from london. many thanks to you. >> well, e.u. ministers are beginning to arrive in brussels where they're set to meet in the coming hours.
11:37 pm

11:41 pm
minister benjamin netanyahu. mr. netanyahu promised jerusalem would remany a united city under israeli authority. oren liebermann has more on the comments on what was a contentious day between israelis and palestinians. >> reporter: prime minister benjamin netanyahu jumped into the controversy with his first speech since he announced his government and since his cabinet was sworn in. he said in jerusalem that jerusalem will stay united under israeli authority. that of course is contentious because many in the international community see dividing jerusalem as a critical step in the two state solution in creating a capital in east jerusalem. knelt net didn netanyahu said jerusalem should stay united under israeli authority and remain open for worshippers of all religions. his speech comes on jerusalem day which in and of itself is a contentious day. israelis see it one way. palestinians another. for israeli the day jerusalem was united in 1967.
11:42 pm
for palestinians, the day that israel took over east jerusalem. at heart of tensions. marked by demonstrations and clashes normally. this time was no exception. thousands of nationalists joo s marched into the muslim quarter, carrying, waving israeli flags. clashes between police and protesters at the damascus gate, straight into the muslim quarter. a number of officers were injured and palestinians arrested. palestinians see this as an affront to what they hope is future capital. israelis marching, a symbolic affront to a two state solution at the heart of the tensions. net knelt netanyahu saying jerusalem will stay united under israeli authority. oren liebermann, cnn, jerusalem. >> no green screens or special effects. what went into the newest instaumei

11:46 pm
welcome back, everyone. the new "mad max fury road" opened in movie theaters over the weekend making more than $109 million worldwide. not bad kiddiconsidering the la movien the series came out 30 years ago. this installment, stars tom hardy and chalize theron and directed by the man who did the original. here's a look at what went into creating "fury road." we wanted to shoot in australia, in broken hill where we shot the other movies in the outback of australia. we were about to shoot, but it rained for the first time in 15 years, big time. so we had to move from the east coast of australia to namibia
11:47 pm
