2:01 am
investigators for more than a year. this morning, a new arrest connected to that case. details ahead. time running out for the desperate search for survivors in that capsized cruise ship. hundreds are still missing this morning. we're live with the very latest. a stunning turn in soccer's corruption scandal, fifa's president stepping down just days after he was re-elected. what inspired this sudden about-face? we are live with that. good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> great to see you today. i'm john berman. it is wednesday, june 3rd. 5:00 a.m. in the east. breaking overnight, police arrested one man in massachusetts, they searched a home in rhode island. law enforcement sources say both are connected to a man the fbi thinks was radicalized by isis. a man shot and killed by boston police in a joint terrorism task force unit on tuesday. boston police officials say the television-year-old usaama rahim
2:02 am
lunged at officers with a foot-long knife. rahim's family tells a radically different story. our national correspondent deborah feyerick has the latest. john and christine, versuses from the terror task force had this man most recently on the clock because of what he described as an uptick in activity. two members of the joint terrorism task force profedapproached him. they did not have their guns drawn and were surprised when he reported brandisheded a knife. he began lunging towards them. that's when the two officers fired shots. one hitting him in the torso, another in the abdomen. his brother said his brother was waiting for a bus to go to work
2:03 am
when he was confronted by several officers who engaged him in a conversation. apparently rahim, according to the brother, made a phone call to their father who actually heard the shots. the brother making that call because he needed in his words, a witness for what was going on. now, authorities say that he wasn't going to be arrested. that he wasn't even going to be taken in for questioning, but they did want to see what he was doing, and where he was going, and that's why they decided to engage him. this is now all under investigation, there's surveillance tapes from the cvs where this whole thing happened. and those surveillance tapes are going to be shown to local area imams and leaders in the community. police questioning two associates they believe who were in communication with rahim. they believe that rahim was radicalized online by isis and other extremist elements. right now, all of this under investigation. christine, john. >> thanks.
2:04 am
happening now, the iraqi government is begging for more help in its fight against isis. at a meeting in paris at the u.s.-led coalition against isis iraq's prime minister haider al abadi complained that his government received more promises than actual support. this as ace u.s. state department twitter feed accused the assad regime in syria of actually aiding isis with air strikes as islamic militants advance on the city of aleppo. tracking all the events for us cnn's ian lee. ian, all of these folks meeting in paris, they want to eradicate, they want to stop isis they disagree on how to do it. >> reporter: that's right, you have the irreally prime minister haider al abadi who is saying he wants more surveillance to monitor and strike isis as it moves around iraq. but then you have the deputy secretary of state tony lincoln
2:05 am
that says the strategy right now is work both militarily and pointing to the fact that isis lost 25% of the territory that had it once in iraq. so you do have conflicts reports. everyone agrees that isis needs to be confronted iraq wanting more weapons, more supplies in that. and from what we're hearing from the press conference afterwards it doesn't look like those supplies will be heading to iraq really anytime soon. but going to the battlefield on the ground we're hearing this morning that isis is cutting off the water from the ramadi dam that has drastically lowered the euphrates river, creating a water crisis in the government-controlled cities downstream of khalidiya and habbaniyah. . we're also hearing that this could be because ice ceus trying to get a tactical advantage using the the lower water to create more options for fighting back. so we're hearing multiple
2:06 am
reports on that, but it would create a crisis for the iraqi government. >> thanks for that ian lee in cairo this morning. this morning, crews are struggling to find survivors among the 458 that capsized on the yangtze river. but almost two days after this disaster the count of people rescued is at just 15. more than 400. and hopes are dimming that any more will be found alive. cnn's anna cornyn standing by with the very latest on these rescue recovery efforts. good morning, anna. >> reporter: hello, john we just heard from local authorities during a press conference updating the media on that search and rescue mission that is under way on the yangtze river. they say that there are hundreds of boats, divers scouring the water. they're talking about the challenges that they're facing such as the strong currents poor visibility because of the silt and mud. it is extremely difficult to see anything. also within the ship which we
2:07 am
have to remember is four stories, 75 meters long 13 meters wide that many of those cab doors were locked. so they cannot get into those cabins where it's feared many of those people were obviously, seeking refuge or perhaps just asleep when that tornado hit. as that ship went down. they said basically, everything is turned upside down. society furniture, extremely difficult to get through the ship. there are tangled cables so they are really having problems if you like getting through the compartments of this vessel. but they are working to get equipment there to raise the ship. that is what we understand from authorities, so that they can get in the vessel and, sadly, john no doubt find many many bodies. as we're saying more than 400 unaccounted for.
2:08 am
another survivor was found earlier today, but as you say, only 15 people have been found. and it is now more than 40 hours since that ship capsized on the yangtze river, john. >> there is staggering information we're getting heavily controlled by the chinese government. thanks so much anna appreciate it. new this morning, the national security agency losing its authority to store the bulk collection of americans' phone records. president obama signed the usa freedom act last night held in weeks of congressional drama in a 67-32 senate vote on tuesday. the compromise bill restores some nsa surveillance programs that expired over the weekend. but within six months the government will need a special court order to get phone records. and those records will now be held by phone companies, not by the nsa. and add the pentagon to a growing list of locations that may have received a shipment of live an flex. the pentagon received a shipment of what was supposed to be dead
