donald trump pressed on everything from immigration to dchs strategy. and protests and tear gas after another police shooting. this not far from ferguson, missouri. we will get the latest on this. in cairo a power ful car bomb targets a government building. welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and those tuned in around the world. i'm errol barnett with you the next two hours. this is cnn newsroom. we begin this hour with a look at the hotly contested political race for u.s.
president. the top two republican presidential con tenders took jabs at one another as they hosted duelling town hall meetings in new hampshire on wednesday. donald trump and jeb bush's events were held at the same time and a few kilometers apart. it was almost as if they were in the same room. listen. >> i think what people are eventually going to vote for is a proven conservative leader that's done it. not talked about it but actually done it. i have a proven conservative record. consistent proven conservative record when no one was watching. long-time proven conservative record. mr. trump doesn't have a proven conservative record. he was a democrat longer in the last decade than he was a republican. he's given more money to democrats than to republicans. >> i'd say his other dumb statement is an act of love. that they come here for an act of love. i would say between common core, his act of love on immigration
and skin in the game with iraq. that's the third one we have now added, i don't see how he is electable. on top of that he talks about women's health issues and against he's women's health. then he comes back a few hours later and says he misspoke, but he's bad on women's health sh issues. nobody's going to be better on women's health issues than donald trump. >> meantime, u.s. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton is still holding on to her front runner status. however, her lead is dramatically shrinking. look at this. the new cnn/orc poll, democratic front runner is 51% and donald trump 45%. this is a hype thetic head-to-head matchup. consider last month clinton was ahead by 16 points. cnn's chris cuomo had a chance to interview donald trump before his town hall meeting. the republican billionaire reacted to the latest cnn poll
and slammed democratic front runner hillary clinton's campaign. take a listen. >> well with, it's not my focus right now. right now i have 16 other people i'm looking at and that is not my focus. indirectly it probably is. i think hillary clinton will have a hard time to be elected. when i look at what happened with petraeus, on a much smaller level, great general, wonderful guy, everybody loves him and it destroyed his life over much less. in terms of confidentiality n term s of importance, much less. and far fewer. and it would seem hard to think that somebody could have a much worse with situation than him and escape. >> well, the factual distinction would be that was classified information with petraeus and he knew and used it. here we do not know yet whether hillary clinton was doing the
wrong thing or mishandling classified information. >> it looks like it was and looks like high-level information. >> during this interview, trump defended his controversial immigration plan calling it simply the right thing to do even if it is oppose ed on both sides of the political aisle. >> look, at some point we have to be honest with ourselves. it's called -- you know, they like the word undocumented because it is more political. i don't use that word. they are illegal immigrants. they came over illegally. some are wonderful people and they have been here for a while. they got to go out. >> how do you do it in a practical way? >> at some point we are trying to get them back, the good ones. we have a lot of good ones. >> you send a mixed message, mr. trump. you say you want to get rid of whole families. >> you have to. they are illegal. >> our senior politics reporter is joining us from washington,
d.c. to digest all of this. thank you for your time. donald trump continues to dominate the republican field. now we are getting specifics about his immigration reform plan, if you can call it that. it seems impossible. he suggests rounding up more than 10 million people who may be in the u.s. illegally. that just doesn't work. it can't happen but for his supporters does that matter. is that what they want to hear? >> i think donald trump is tapping in to a visceral feelings about immigration and illegal immigration in a certain factor of the republican base. you are right, rounding up 12 million illegal immigrants is first of all impossible to do. some people have have cost his plan at $150 billion and the idea of building a huge wall on the u.s.-mex eco border and getting mexico to pay for it, none of it seems plausible. that's in essence something that runs throughout the trump candidacy. it is somewhat surreal.
none of his policies seem to add up but he has this style. he has tapped in to this anti-establishment, anti-government feeling. a feeling of palpable anger in the country in the early stages of the election. at the moment, details don't seem to matter. it is the aura of trump and the way he's really obliterated the other candidates at the moment in the media. no one else can get a word in edge wise. >> we should mention that big wall, donald trump says, will have a big, beautiful door in it for anyone who may feel he is being sooen phobic. you say this is surreal. it certainly is in many way. a few months ago, he wasn't even polling, wasn't even announced and now he is within with striking distance of hillary clinton in the new poll. just six percentage points behind her in a national head-to-head. that is incredible. does it say more about trump's strengths or hillary clinton's weaknesses? >> i think the first. this is obviously a long way
ahead of the election in 2016. at this stage, polls often sort of reflect name recognition, media coverage when they do a considered judgment by the electorate about who they think will be the next president. you are right. there was a big surprise in that cnn poll this morning. only 6% behind hillary clinton in a theoretical matchup. you have to say that if hillary clinton won a general election by 6% that would be with almost considered a landslide but the fact that donald trump is the republican who has the best chance of beating her is a big surprise. part of that reflects the fact that hillary clinton has had a tough summer. she's had the scandal over her private e-mail server that she used when she was secretary of state. that's bringing her numbers down. on the democratic side, you have the same anti-government, anti-establishment feeling. in the candidacy of bernie sanders, a socialist senator from vermont who's rising in the
polls. 18% behind hillary clinton. hi numbers are going up and hers are going down. i think at this stage to think that hillary clinton could lose a general election to donald trump is somewhat possible but this trump phenomenon who everybody in washington thought would go away, it seems to be enduring and carrying on. it is quite incredible sdplchlt the only thing we know for sure is there will be more surprises. our sr. politics reporter. thank you for your time from d.c. >> thanks. one more point we want to make, you may recall donald trump raised eyebrows when he said he gets his military advice from watching tv. hopefully this is one of the programs he watches. chris cuomo asked him about that in the extended interview. hear what he said to about it later this hour. another night of unrest in st. louis, missouri following a fatal police shooting there.
police fired smoke and tear gas at protesters to disperse the crowd. they were demonstrating following the police shooting death of an 8-year-old african-american suspect. police say the suspect pointed a gun at officers as they arrived with a search warrant. the police chief said the protest near the scene began peacefully. >> we cleared the intersection, as i said. it was done peacefully. officers in regular uniform without shields, without sticks went to the area. made a couple of arrests and peace was restored. officers left the area and as soon as we left the group came back in the intersection and began to march. it wasn't until later in the evening when they marched through the central west end along kings highway that they took over the intersection as officers approached that time is when glass bottles and bricks were thrown at the police officers so they had to block them with the shields they had. >> we had an image that reveals
police and firefighters at a burning building in the area. there will be increased pris plens at the scene. it is the middle of the night. we will keep you posted op developments. wildfire in the u.s. city in washington state has killed three firefighters and injured others. authorities evacuated the town and nearby winthrop. 4,000 homes in total. the number of wildfires are raging across washington. and the region. 1,000 people have left the county as this wildfire destroys their homes. let's get a glance at the weather situation ahead for the region. it's not just washington state. it is the northwestern united states. we are joined with more on that sdplchlt this is such a disheartening story. i grew up in this part of the united states, i spent a lot of time in the region. i was there a month ago and the fires that are still burning the same fires were occurring a month ago.
it shows you 25, 30 days in to the fires and they are still not fully contained because mother nature always has the upper hand. if it will be windy and hoyt is almost impossible to contain the fires because they jump the line and create other fires. that's the concern. the forecast changes dramatically in the coming days. left corner of the screen is an area of high pressure. right corner an area of low pressure. wind speeds pick up. frontal feature cruises by montana. temperatures cool off drastically. winds pick up as well. the temperatures in the 70s the next couple of days in and around seattle. work toward eastern washington and 80s to lower 90s. unfortunately notice what happens on saturday for a lot of this region, temperatures shoot up above average territory n the upper 70s for western washington. but the fire threat, red flag warn withings, winds 30 to 50 mile an hour gusts possible with these cooler temperatures. i think not going to help muches for a the wind picking up.
the speed we are expecting. notice with the yellow coloration, showing 30 to 40 mile an hour winds. that's the story here. the humidity will go up. 90% at times around seattle and portland also picking up a little bit. the fires are across the areas farther east. the forecast does not improve. the next five days bone-dry conditions. the heart of the western side of the u.s. remainings that way. might be some showers for far northern washington state, but the area in the most severe drought will remain that way looks like for the foreseeable future. >> there is the massive el nino, later this year. maybe more moisture. >> maybe for southern california. for the northwest it doesn't typically bring more moisture but we will see how it plays out. now we want to get you to egypt where powerful car bomb exploded a few hours ago outside of the country's capital of
cairo. that massive explosion happened near a security building and a courthouse. egyptian interior officials say the driver parked in front of the building and was picked up by someone on a motorcycle before fleeing the scene. six police officers are treated at a local hospital. last hour, i spoke to a reporter for the times of london who was jolted awake by the force of the blast. >> there's an enormous explosion that was heard across the capital several kilometers away from the actual blast site shaking people awake and smashing windows and damaging residential buildings. an area about ten kilometers north of the center of the capital in front of the security directors building and the nearby courthouse. >> this has just happened in the
past few hours. we don't have a claim of responsibility just yet. we are looking at footage of the devastation as it comes in to us. what we can see here is this is an attack on the egyptian security apparatus. just detail for us some of the other recent attacks against the military and against the police there in egypt. >> what we have seen the last two years since the military overthrow of morsi. a crackdown on organizations in support of mr. morsi. recently one of the most high- profile of the state official, the killing of the general in june. we have also had massive attacks on check points and buildings.
a lot of these groups are anchored. they started to attack foreigners as well with bomb blasts against italian consulates in cairo. what we are seeing is target campaign against the government and now foreigners. >> security forces have cordoned off the area around the blast zone. they continue to investigate. when we get new information we will bring that to you. the thai police chief tells reuters at least ten people now were involved in monday's bangkok bombing. that's new information we received in the past hour or so. and they say that attack had been planned for at least a month. prior to that announcement, police were only looking for three suspects. thai place are asking for
interpol's help in the case. we are live from bangkok with more on this. and new information there, the scope of the investigation now widening. >> absolutely. it wide withens and widens. at the moment, the actual cctv footage i have been looking at has two suspects as well as the bomber himself. police are saying they are looking more and more across this as a network, a big network. they are also saying they are talking to and be helped and checking cctv records at the airport to see whether the bomber or the suspect has left the country. that's where they are at the moment. the investigation is in full swing at the moment. this is the shrine.
and all morning people have been coming in to pay their respects to the shrine and offer condolences to what happened here. you'll see the crowds of incense burning everywhere. so much incense they have come around and are clearing it. >> all right. that was our andrew stevens in bangkok. turnly we lost the signal. people are coming out to the shrine just after midday now. people are showing resilience. there's not much new information other than a widened investigation in to who was behind that bombing he gained fame by losing weight on a diet of subway sandwiches . eventually becoming a poster boy for the fast food chain. now he's admitted he paid for sex with under aged girl. a plea deal and his punishment coming up. adilters exposed. hackers revealed the identity of

the race for u.s. president. a new cnn/orc poll puts the democratic front runner at 51%, the real estate mogul 45%. last month clinton was ahead by 16 points. now to more of cnn's chris cuomo interview with donald trump. the u.s. republican presidential candidate used their discussion to clarify his earlier remarks that he gets military analysis from watching television. listen. >> so you said something earlier about the poll that you came out ahead on isis. that was a surprise to people. >> not to me because i talk about it a lot. >> i understand. one reason it might be surprising is something that you said, that you get a lot of military analysis from watching television. >> see, i watch your show. i watch other shows. you have on the best generals. >> we do.
>> the best staff. >> probably better than i could get. in all fairness, what do i know. i'm a man that made a great fortune and i'm going to make the country rich and great. but get me the right general and i will see four, five, generals, all sorts of people, stoop down to the colonel but you have a lot of people and so do other shows and they are really good people. i watch that, and i read the "time"s, "wall street journal" and other things. >> but you need a team. >> i read magazines, especially "time" magazine this week because i'm on the cover but i read magazines. i read other things. yeah, sure i need a team. by the time you get to a problem -- we're talking a long ways away. it will be changed. you will have a different set. different countries will be run by different people. >> you will have someone like your opponent jeb bush who says i have a policy team, a staff. he doesn't have one. >> he says he does. okay. he can say -- he is a very low energy person, jeb bush. he has low energy.
it is okay if you want to lead a long life. he is low energy person. perhaps he sits down all day with a particular general. i can get a lot of information in a short time. i have met with numerous people. i was given the biggest award by the marines the other darks one of the biggest civilian awards by the marines the other day. i was with all the marines. i was with the new head of the joint chiefs of staff. an impressive guy at the waldorf astoria the other night. i was given one of their most distinguished awards. >> you are saying they respect you. >> i think they document i got the award from them. they presented it to me. so i think they do when i say that a lot of people thought it was very smart. i watch all of the shows. you get the best people. because even the generals want to be on television, right? or they are retired generals in many cases, but i see a lot of good things by watching your show and other shows.
it's really nothing to be laughed or scoffed at. >> if you took it to the next level you would have your own policy advisers. >> you know what i do, without naming names but when i watch your different shows -- your show in particular, you are very much in to this. but when i watch the different shows certain people i think are terrific that i can do better by watching and seeing and reading in the "time" and then i know who i maybe want to speak to more. you are not going to meet with 400 different people. i do learn a lot by watching and learn a lot by reading the various newspapers and magazines and everything else. i really find it to be a fascinating subject. some people agree with me on isis, many of them agree with me on isis. >> probably reflected in the poll. today, what do you think your chances of becoming president of the united states are? >> i never like to talk about chances. i'm doing well. i'm leading every poll. your polls have been strong. fox just came out a couple of days ago. it was similar to your poll.
leading everything. i was most happy with poll because my daughter came up to me and my wife came up to me and she knows how passionate i am about women, protecting women and taking care -- i cherish women. they are so important. when i watched jeb bush a week ago not wanting to fund the women's health issues. he wanted to not fund them. he said, well, i don't think we need to spend 500 million. i don't think they need that -- >> i thought it wasser theable. >> he said he only meant planned parenthood. >> i watched the name and he went back and rewound up by his pollsters and he said he misspoke. how do you misspeak about something like that? my wife and daughter came up to me and they said, you know, the win thing you should do is talk about women's health issues because you are so good on it. you know about it and you cherish women.
you want to protect women. protect them in more than one way. i will protect them militarily, too because we are such a target. this country is such a target. we are considered to be weak. we are a weak country. we are considered to be weak now. >> you don't think we are considered the strongest country in the world militarily? >> i think we are considered to be a country in decline. serious decline. look at our education, number 25 in the world. we spend far more. >> international viewers can catch the full interview when we air it a few hours from now. it will be 7 p.m. if you are watching in hong kong, noon in london and cnn usa you will see it all over new day in a few hours. now to this, a palestinian prisoners two-month long hunger strike is over. israel's supreme court suspended the detention.
it has sparked protests nearly every day. we have a report on a case that raised questions about two of israel's controversial policies. >> palestinian lawyer mohammad -- is no longer a detainee after the court ordered the detention is no longer operative. that doesn't mean he is leaving the hospital yet. the court ruled he should stay in the emergency ward of the hospital where he is treated because of his med call condition. after a two-month hunger strike. doctors worry he may have suffered permanent damage. his condition was deteriorating wednesday evening so doctors decided to sedate him. he isn't free yet. he is ordered to stay in the hospital. the court says his family can visit without restrictions as a regular patient. his detention began in november of last year. israel accused him of terrorist
activities and being a member of jihad. his lawyer and family deny those accusations. because of his hunger strike he went from unknown to a name that everyone here now knows. israelis and palestinians. this hunger strike put a spotlight on a law that allows israel to hold someone without charge or trial for six-month periods. it brought attention to israel's controversial force feeding law passed last month. though it wasn't used in this case. in the end the court ordered the end of the deteng on the 65th day of his hunger strike. cnn, jerusalem. former u.s. president jimmy carter is opening up about his cancer diagnosis. the 90-year-old democrat will hold a news conference in the coming days to discuss his health in detail. it will be the first time carter has spoken about it since he announced last week that the cancer had spread in his body. carter has a family history of

ability to address the concerns, to investigate technically, the possible military dimensions of iran's nuclear program in the past. the iaea is comfortable. going forward they have in place the most robust set of inspection regime that has been peacefully negotiated with another nation. i won't talk about the details of these leaked documents or draft documents from the iaea but we can comfortable, secretary kerry is comfortable the iaea will have this access and information it needs to make a proper accounting of possible military dimensions for iran's program. there's also this dimension of play. as the u.s. congress reviews the nuclear deal, officials say they are concerned that russia is ready to sell a sophisticated missile defense system to iran. the s-300 air defense system for example would make it more difficult for u.s. or israeli warplanes to bomb iran's nuclear
facilities. an attack would warn iranians if another attack was on the way. coming up, risking it all for a better life. we take you on one journey as they flee violence in their home country. stay with us. ♪"once there was a hushpuppy" by dan romis man kind?eitlin ♪ are we good? go see. go look through their windows so you can understand their views. go find out just how kind the hes and shes of this mankind are.

police are driving down the street are shooting tear gas where children are. and trump versus bush. the two top presidential candidates hold duelling rallies in the key state of new hampshire. >> a big welcome to our viewers in the states and tuned in from all around the globe. i'm errol barnett. >> i'm rosemary church. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom." the thai police chief says at least ten people were involved in monday's bangkok bombing. >> they also say the attack had been planned at least a month. prior to that announcement police were looking for three suspects. thai police are asking for interpol's help in this case. >> we are now learning as we have just reported that police
in thailand believe at least ten people were involved in monday's deadly bombing and it was planned for at least a month. how do they know this and do they have any idea, then, who these people are? >> reporter: to be honest, i am not sure how they know that. we were working incredibly hard. a lot of updates wednesday late evening, last night for us here coming from the police to myself and the team here. but we don't know how they know there are ten people involved. i guess they are trying to figure out how someone could plan this kind of sophisticated bomb, how they could have made it, how they could have decide where had to put it and that's why they are deciding it is more than one person. they believe that the man in the yellow t-shirt was not operating alone. he had two accomplices at least
inside the shrine at the time. if we show you around there, there is a barrier there. that's where the bomb went off. that man in the yellow t-shirt planted the bomb there and in front of him, rosemary, clearly on cctv footage there are two men who stand up right in front of him one wearing a red t-shirt and one in a white t-shirt. the police spokesman believes they were two accomplices with him standing around him to protect him and hide him while he was planting that bomb. >> and saima, thai police have asked for help from the world's largest police organization, interpol. what does that tell us? >> reporter: they are looking at every and any possibility. they have told us they are not -- still in the country.
have they left? they are looking for help not just from interpol but any country that can help is what they said. they are grasping at straws because they still don't have a name. they still don't have identification, particularly of the main suspect in that yellow t-shirt. they released a sketch of him. that, i believe is based on various witnesses including the motor bike taxi driver that my team spoke to yesterday saying he picked him up a few hundred meters down this main road outside a hospital and took him to a park. he didn't speak to him but on the way he did speak on the phone. he spoke in a language that the motor bike taxi driver told us is not thai and not english. so beyond that, if it is indeed a foreign language they are look at airport cctv. they have used a lot of the cctv that is around this city center
but now they are look beyond that, around the area, other major areas in bangkok and airport cctv and asking every country that help to do so. >> they have offered a hefty reward there. there is footage, at least. let's hope that in some way they can find the suspects involved. reporting live from bangkok, thanks to you. travel officials in bangkok and taiwan are warning people not to go to bangkok after that explosion. >> but critics say it only hurts the people of thailand even measure. anna coren reports. >> reporter: a family returns home to taiwan after a holiday in thailand ended in tragedy. he and his daughters sufrd deep wounds to their legs. >> my daughter and myself
dragged ourselves to the louis vuitton shop on the corner. >> reporter: they are among scores of people injured in the blast that claimed at least 20 lives. taiwan is advising against unnecessary travel to bangkok. hong kong's travel industry council has cancelled tours until the end of the month. but the main source of tourism in thailand is by far from china. they poured over $5 billion into the economy. the head of the u.n. world travel organization says terrorists are targeting places popular among tourists. >> the only way to counter that is not to let them win. the only way to do it is to be aware that this is exactly what they have in mind. they have in mind to hurt us, hurt our economy and the tourism
industry. and by doing that they are destroying the livelihood of people and destroying some of the most cherished and worked for achievements of these societies. we should never allow that to happen. we should continue to travel to thailand and other places. >> taleb rifai says he is ready to take his family to thailand immediately. anna coren, cnn, hong kong. we turn now to egypt where a powerful car bomb has exploded just outside of the country's capital of cairo. >> this massive explosion happened near a national security building and a courthouse. egyptian interior officials say the driver parked the car in front of the building and was picked up by someone on a motorcycle before fleeing the scene. >> six policemen were wounded in the blast and are being treated
at a local hospital. we spoke to a reporter from "the times" of london who was jolted awake by the force of the blast. >> an enormous explosion heard across the greater capital several kilometers from the blast site, shaking people awake and damaging residential buildings near the bomb blast which is an area 10 kilometers north of the center of the capital in front of the security directorate building and nearby courthouse. >> security forces continue to investigate. a fatal police shooting in st. louis has triggered another night of unrest there. >> police fired smoke and tear gas to disperse a crowd of protesters, demonstrators had
gathered where police shot and killed an african-american suspect earlier. police say the 18-year-old pointed a gun at officers when they arrived with the search warrant. an investigation into the shooting is underway. this comes just over a year after michael brown was shot and killed by a white officer in a st. louis suburb of ferguson. the police chief says the initial protests of the shooting were peaceful but that changed. >> just as the officers were about to respond to make a few additional arrests the group marched into the central west end to kings highway and ultimately back to the intersection of paige and walton. at that intersection they blocked the intersection. as the officers approached them, glass bottles started to be thrown at officers, bricks started to be thrown at officers. officers had to protect themselves from the objects being thrown at them.
>> the chief says a car was set on fire and businesses broken into. this image shows police and firefighters at a burning building. there will be an increased police presence at the scene overnight in the overnight hours. a wildfire in the u.s. state of washington has killed three firefighters and injured four others. the firefighters died while battling flames near twisp. >> authorities have evacuated that town nearby winthrop and other cities as wildfires close in. the wildfires have burned 750,000 acres or 300,000 hectares in washington, oregon, california, idaho, and montana. we turn to the political race for u.s. president. the top two republican presidential contenders took jabs at each other as they hosted duelling town meetings in
new hampshire on wednesday. >> the events were held at the same time and not too far apart. but let's first go to sarah murray covering trump. >> reporter: donald trump held his first town hall since becoming a presidential candidate and drew a big crowd, filling this room with about 900 people. just to pepper the g.o.p. front runner with questions. and the questions ran from immigration to illegal drug use and whether he has too much hubris to be president. trump slammed jeb bush and went after the crowd size at the bush event tonight. >> have i got under jeb bush's skin in i don't know. you mention the word skin. he said the other day, one of the dumber things i've heard
ever in politics when talking about iraq. that we, the united states, he said, have to show them that we have skin in the game. in order to go into iraq. we have lost 2 trillion dollars, thousands of lives, wounded warriors who i love all over the place and he is talk we have to show them we have skin in the game. >> reporter: and his next stop is alabama and he is expecting tens of thousands of people to show up there. an aide to the campaign says they are moving the event to a football stadium. u.s. republican presidential candidate jeb bush held a town hall meeting just down the road from donald trump's event on wednesday. bush used that opportunity to attack the billionaire front runner. >> people are going to vote for
a conservative leader that's done it, not talked about it, and i have a proven conservative record, consistent proven conservative record. when no one was watching, long-time proven conservative record. mr. trump does not have a proven conservative record. he was a democrat longer in the last decade than a republican. he has given more money to democrats. >> and still donald trump is leading in the polls. since donald trump announced his campaign in late june he has quickly leapt to the top of the republican field and now for the first time in a cnn/orc poll his gains have boosted him enough to be competitive in the general election. hillary clinton is just six points ahead of trump. a dramatic tightening since july. last month she was ahead by 16 points. cnn's chris cuomo had a
chance to interview trump before his town hall meeting. the billionaire defended his controversial immigration plan calling it, quote, the right thing to do. take a listen. >> immigration, you have people in the g.o.p. worried that you're going to alienate -- excuse the pun, the hispanic population. >> i have to do the right thing. >> pulling the birthright exception that may be constitutionally dubious. you shouldn't be taking such an extreme position. what do you say? >> i have to do the right thing. this country is to politically correct, no one wants to take a stance. i took a lot of heat. you were one of the leaders that first week and week and a half after i made the announcements. and a lot of people were not reading it the way i said it and that's now fact. i have been complimented by some of the people. i brought up the thing of illegal immigration.
i bet you wouldn't be asking that question if i hadn't put that in my opening statement. >> i would never certainly take you out of context. >> many people did. >> would you then go -- >> at some point -- look, at some point we have to be honest with ourselves. it's called -- now they like to use the word "undocumented" i don't use that word. they are illegal immigrants. they came over illegally. some are wonderful people and they have been here for a while. they have to go out. >> how do you do it in a practical way? you can round up 11 million people. >> we will try to get the good ones back. >> that's a mixed message. you say you are going to get rid of whole families. >> they're illegal. we have a country. we have to have a border. we have to have a wall. mexico will pay for the wall. i get a kick out of people who can't negotiate -- >> they are not going to pay for
a $4 billion wall. why would they say yes? >> they make a fortune with us. our companies are moving into mexico more than any other place right now. we're losing our industry and business to mexico. their leaders are smart as hel. . 300,000 births this year, illegals in our country. that means we picked up 300,000 people that are going to get social security. you have people on the border and they walk over and have a baby and now we are supposed to -- >> the citizenship for those babies you would revoke it now and retroactively? >> the 14th amendment is questionable about whether -- >> the court reads -- this is a minority legal opinion you are talking about. >> there are many people that totally feel that -- >> they want it that way. >> amending is too big a deal. i would be in my second term and
eighth year assuming everything went smoothly. >> takes a long time. >> i believe you can win it legally. >> there was much more discussed in that conversation for those of you viewing this from outside the u.s. you can see the full interview when we air it in a few hours, noon in london right here on cnn. the u.s. has its objections but russia is moving forward with an arms deal. what weapons like this could mean for the u.s. and iran's air space just ahead. he doesn't need your help. until he does. three cylinders, dual overhead cams and 50 horsepower.

[ speaking foreign language ]. >> that's the boat we were filming. >> the turkish ghost card asks our captain for help towing the migrants to shore. they are syrian shouting they don't have a motor any more and want to return to dry land. help us, help us, the men cry out as our captain tosses a rope. the coast guard had chaised them for two hours and finally the
migrants say, threatened to sink their boat if they did not drop their motor. then the coast guard towed the dinghy as close to shore as their ship would allow. 60 migrants clutching their life vests and inner tubes, the faces telling of tragedy and dejection but also the relief of still being alive when so many have perished. on shore, most disappear into waiting taxis. one young man bitterly says if death was not chasing us we would not be trying this. all night they had been aiming for the twinkling lights of the greek island of kos in the distance. the gateway to europe. now a dream left for another day. arwa damon, turkey. and i want to show you this video from moments ago, in fact. look at this. another example of a cruise ship

treatment in the prison? as a high profile prisoner he could be at risk in the general population and prisoners of that nature have been attacked before. but when we asked them whether his complaints were seen to more quickly an other prisoners the answer was an emphatic, yes. >> david mckenzie with insight into the prison life of oscar pistorius. thanks. after what has already been a long and hot summer, parts of europe are now in the midst of a crippling drought. and our meteorologist pedram javaheri joins us now to talk about that. for a lot of us weird to talk europe and drought. >> i'm seeing some of the numbers and it's comparable to southern california as far as the severity, the extent and the cost to farmers. 2.5 to $3 billion of losses are expected in california because of the drought. in germany and poland the
numbers are close because of the lack of production this year and the heat. and want to show you what is happening with video coming out of poland. that is warsaw in the background. what you are seeing are the lowest river levels since the 1800s in poland. water levels are so low that officials have puld out over 100,000 square feet of trash because of the drought in place there. we know the wheat is limited, asparagus and apples could cost the farmers millions of dollars. we go down the longest river in poland and the perspective is dire when you look at how long they have had observations for the river gauges and it's among the lowest since the 1880s. but high pressure is large and in charge. and we talk about it. it causes the air to sink. it dries it and compresses it
and warms it. and this is march 2015 and germany what you're looking at. dry to moderate drought in place. you fast forward to may it drops to severe to extreme. and then exceptional enters the picture in the top of the charts in the droughts. that is what is happening over portions of germany. the wheat production is 30% less. a serious concern for feed for cattle and livestock over this region. you know what is happening in california. i want to show you nevada. satellite imagery from july 2010, las vegas in the left corner of the screen. and watch lake meade shrink. with vegas on the left-hand side and vegas expanding in population and you go from 2000 to 2015 and you see lake meade become considerably smaller. the drought situation in california, nevada and germany

exposed. databases of names, e-mails and sexual preferences are making their way to main stream websites. >> reporter: ashley madison is site devoted to the wandering eye. everyone who is thinking about having an affair can go on the site, sign up and find someone else who is interested. at the end of the day it has millions of users. so a lot of people are interested. about a month ago hackers threatened to release a lot of personal information. they said they were able to breach the servers and get sensitive user data and said if you don't shut down the site we're going to post all of this data. hackers made good on the promise and decided to the a huge data dump, 10 gigabytes on the dark web. so when we're sorting through the data we saw 15,000 dot gov
e-mail addresses. what they can't make up was also released which is payment information that reveals your home address, your phone number. they were also able to get internal data from the company. we are look at bank account information and internal memos. hackers essentially owned the server. they did a ton of damage. who is behind this? we don't know a lot about the group claiming to take credit. it's called the impact group. they said these people are immoral and ashley madison promises to keep their data safe and they are not doing that. they said find yourself in here, learn your lesson and make amends. so what's next for ashley madison right now the company is doing damage control and trying to find the people behind this hack. they haven't been able to do that. representatives have said
whether or not you believe in what we do and what we stand for, hacking is a criminal act and this is personal information that has been put out there on the web ripe for identity left and there might be some people to see if their significant other is on this site. we look at the site, they claim to have 40 million users. we don't know if that is necessarily true. that is a lot of people using a site devoted to infidelity. >> there is a lot of heart break happening as people wonder is my partner or spouse on there? and some are finding the truth. it's a shame. >> it's very unfortunate. extraordinary, really. and the advertisement. >> it's sick, isn't it? moving on here, the subway restaurant chain has stores in 110 nations. many of you may know their former pitchman, jared fogle who got famous after losing weight
after eating their sandwiches now he faces prison time on child pornography charges. >> reporter: for 15 years, jared fogle was one of america's biggest pitchman. but the cameras were not welcome after the father of the two pleaded guilty to having child pornography. according to court documents, fogle traveled from indiana to new york at least twice to have sex with minors. in 2012 at the plaza hotel in new york, fogle had sex with a 17-year-old prostitute and asked him to introduce her to more girls. fogle told her he would accept a 16-year-old, the younger the girl, the better. >> i cannot think of anything more more repugnant than sexually victimizing a child. >> i'm jared the subway guy and this is my story.
>> reporter: the image now erased. his wife saying she is leaving him. >> remember jared from subway? >> reporter: he became the spokesman in 2000 after claiming to have lost 245 pounds from eating subway sandwiches and exercise. >> what is that? >> reporter: appearing in hundreds of commercials with big-name stars helping him to earn an estimated $15 million but that came to an end, when russell tailor, the head of fogle's charity was arrested this year. agents said he used images of unknowing minors changing clothes, showering and bathing in his home and distributed the images to fogle and others. fogle must pay $100,000 to each of the 14 victims who were
secretly pho secretly photographed or paid for sex. and spend between five and 15 years in prison. >> it is believed that his estimated worth is $15 million. but in this case you can see how some of this was laid out. his wife says she is going to leave him after all these allegations are coming out. and subway is no longer associated with jared fogle. ryan young reporting from indianapolis and we will be right back.

-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com ministers from the uk, france, and germany meet at the euro tunnel this hour hoping to find a solution to the migrant crisis there. cnn gives you a rare look at what life is like in prison for oscar pistorius. and donald trump targets hillary clinton along with an amendment to the constitution in a sit down interview with cnn. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom."
and we begin with the migrant crisis that deepens by the day. within the hour a number of european officials will meet to take action. french, british, and german government ministers first will head to the channel tunnel in calais and later they will discuss the fight against human smuggling. for more on this, we turn now to ian lee. he is live in london. ian, what are some of the lucians that might come out of these meetings, do you think? >> reporter: what we're hearing from officials is that they're going to have this joint command and control center to help with security on the french side of the crossing over into the uk. there's going to be extra police. there's going to be extra fencing. one thing, though that they're going to go after are smugglers. they are trying to dismantle the networks that are bringing the migrants and refugees to that
area in france, calais and try to prevent them getting there initially but they are going to beef up the security around the entrance of the tunnel that leads to the uk. things being mentioned are, again, extra fences, extra police officers. they're going to have flood lights, infrared cameras, all to stop people from trying to cross over into the uk. extra policing as well. they're going to be going over to the area that is called the jungle where about 3,000 migrants are being camping out right now. and every night we see them try to make this very dangerous crossing into the uk, rosemary. >> and ian, what about trying to get to the core of the problem, why so many of these people are trying to get through and across into the tunnel? >> reporter: well, that ultimately, it would be the
goal. but it is incredibly difficult. these people are coming from all over the world. you have them coming from iran, sudan, ethiopia, eritrea, syria. they are coming from wartorn countries looking for a better life. we are hearing horror stories of escaping bombs and conflict and so these people -- for them to stop coming to really stem this tide of migrants you have to get to the root cause of the problem and that is these conflicts and problems in their countries of origin which is a very difficult task. so right now these ministers are going to be meeting trying to confront this initial problem. obviously this is resolving the conflicts back home are something that diplomats would love to do but it is going to take time. >> it is certainly a challenging
situation. ian lee reporting live from london. many thanks to you. hundreds more migrants are arriving in greece coming from the island of kos. almost 21,000 migrants arrived in greece just last week alone. cnn international correspondent arwa damon went to the turkish coast and here is her report on their often dangerous trip. >> reporter: a rubber dinghy packed with migrants takes on the turkish coast guard. ignoring the coast guard's horn, glaring spotlight and orders to return to shore, then lost from view. just before dawn we are on the same waters.
[ speaking foreign language ] that's the boat that we were filming. the turkish ghost card asks our captain for help towing the migrants to shore. they are syrian shouting they don't have a motor any more and want to return to dry land. help us, help us, the men cry out as our captain tosses a rope. the coast guard had chased them for two hours and finally, the migrants say, threatened to sink their boat if they did not drop their motor. then the coast guard towed the dinghy as close to shore as their ship would allow. 60 migrants crammed together clutching their life vests and inner tubes their faces telling of tragedy and dejection but also the relief of still being alive when so many have perished. on shore, most disappear into waiting taxis. one young man bitterly says if
death wasn't chasing us, we would not be trying this. all night they had been aiming for the twinkling lights of the greek island of kso in the distance, their gateway to europe. now a dream left for another day. arwa damon, cnn, turkey. a spokesman for thailand says the deadly bangkok bombing is unlikely to be linked to international terrorism. that's after the tie police chief announced at least ten people were involved in monday's attack and it had been planned for at least a month. i asked cnn's saima mohsin how police came to the new number. >> reporter: to be honest i'm not really sure how they know it. the information coming from the police is sketchy. a lot of updates wednesday late evening, so last night for us here, coming from the police directly to myself and the team here.
but we don't know beyond that how they believe that there are more than ten people involved. i guess they're trying to figure out how someone could plan some -- this kind of sophisticated bomb and made it and decided where to put it. and that's why they're deciding it's more than one person. they believe that the man in the yellow t-shirt was not operating alone. he has two accomplices at least inside the shrine at the time. if we show you around there, and there is a barrier there, that's where the bomb went off. now that man in the yellow t-shirt planted the bomb there. and in front of him, rosemary, clearly on cctv footage there are two men who stand up right in front of him. one wearing a red t-shirt and one wearing a white t-shirt. the police spokesman told me himself he believes they are two accomplices who were there with
him deciding where to plant it and hiding him while he was planting that bomb. >> saima mohsin there. and the thai government is offering almost $14,000 to the families of those killed in the bombing. 20 people were killed and 120 wounded. want to turn to egypt where a powerful car bomb rocked a northern suburb of cairo. witnesses in several neighborhoods say they heard that explosion. some were jolted awake by it. the blast happened near a national security building and a courthouse. the egyptian interior ministry officials say the driver parked the car in front of the building and was picked up by someone on a motorcycle and fled the scene. the nation's health ministry says 29 people were wounded in that blast. there is a beefed up police presence in st. louis, missouri
after a fatal police shooting triggered renewed unrest. police fired smoke and tear gas at protesters to disperse them. nine people were arrested. demonstrators were gathered where police shot and killed an african-american suspect earlier. police say the 18-year-old pointed a gun at officers when day arrived with a search warrant. an investigation is underway. the police chief says the demonstrations began peacefully. >> we cleared the interaction. and that was done peacefully. officers in regular uniform without shields and sticks went into the area. we made a couple of arrests at that point and peace was restored. officers left the area. as soon as we left the group came back into the intersection and began to march. they marched along kings highway and took over the intersection.
that's when glass bottles and bricks were being thrown at the officers and they had to block them with the shields. >> the police chief says a car was set on fire and businesses were broken into. all right, to south africa where the justice minister has ordered a review of the pending parole of oscar pistorius. he now most likely won't be released into house arrest on friday. pistorius has served ten months for culpable homicide in the killing of his model girlfriend reeva steenkamp. and for the latest we turn to david mckenzie. he joins me from johannesburg in south africa. explain to us why they've reviewed this and also, we understand, there's an inside look at life for oscar pistorius
in prison. >> reporter: rosemary, i think it's more dramatic than interesting turn of events it's a major turn around that the justice and correctional put the brakes on this release of oscar pistorius into house arrest. so now, we don't know exactly when he will be released if he will be released. the minister said he's going to put it back to the parole board. he said he was petitioned by a women's group who said it was bad form to release him during women's month in south africa. he will spend more time in prison and we are getting a rare look into what that time in prison is like. an unlikely soccer match-up of oscar pistorius and a czech mob boss. they shared a prison wing for a time. this cell phone footage a rare
look inside pistorius's ten months locked away until now. >> he said it feels unbelievable. >> reporter: their job is to listen to prisoner concerns. one of their assigned inmates, oscar pistorius. >> the first time i went to see him he is -- >> just a few days ago they went behind the prison walls to meet with pistorius for the final time. >> now we can sit down and discuss and laugh at the same time. >> reporter: their manager at the independent judicial inspectorate sees hundreds of complaints each day and he saw more than a few from pistorius. >> he complained he needed a bath. >> he wanted a bath. >> and correctional services supplied him with a bath because he couldn't shower.
and he complained about his bed and they replaced his bed for him. >> reporter: a world-class athlete, pistorius complained about gym equipment too. it was installed. while most prisoners complain about the food it's rarely because of food. >> oscar was worried the food in the prison might be poisoned. >> reporter: so he would only buy food from the prison store, he says. in this overcrowded prison, 50 inmates often squeeze into a single cell, sharing one toilet and a basin. >> they are always fighting for food, for bath. >> reporter: but pistorius had his own cell for his safety. high profile prisoners have been attacked here before. >> if you are high profile inmate people will take advantage of the situation. >> they will target you? >> that's correct. >> reporter: taking every
precaution to keep south africa's disgraced icon safe. certainly, rosemary, there is a sense in that piece that he got preferential treatment and they say it's complicated. as a disabled, high profile prisoner he needed to be separated. but they did say when he made those complaints, his questions were answered and they were put in there very quickly, indeed. >> and, david, give us an idea on how -- what the reaction has been so far there in south africa. >> the reaction to the fact he won't be leaving prison has been mixed. there has been a lot of support of the minister delaying this parole because many people, including women's groups felt for someone to get ten months in prison for killing their girlfriend is certainly too little of a time. that also, of course, includes
reeva steenkamp's parents who complained back in june. but there are others, including legal experts who say what the parole board did is within the law in south africa and they see this political interference by a cabinet-level minister. >> many thanks to david mckenzie reporting live for us. well next here on "cnn newsroom" why donald trump thinks hillary clinton's e-mail controversy could be devastating to her run for u.s. president. >> it's either criminal or incompetent. it's gross incompetence or criminal and neither is acceptable to be president. need to hire fast?
time and not very far apart. here are some of the verbal jabs. >> what people are going to vote for is a proven conservative leaders that's done it, not talked about it but done it. i have a proven conservative record. mr. trump doesn't have a proven conservative record. he was a democrat longer in the last decade than he was a republican. he has given more money to democrats than he's given to republicans. >> and you know right down the road, thank you, right down the road we have jeb. very small crowd. you know what's happening to jeb's crowd as you know right down the street? they're sleeping. they're sleeping now. >> ouch. well, cnn's chris cuomo interviewed donald trump before his town hall meeting in new hampshire. he says democratic front runner hillary clinton's campaign is in
big trouble. take a listen. >> i think hillary is going to have a hard time being in the election based on the e-mails, servers and maybe the speeches. i think it's going to be a hard thing for her to overcome. >> you think it's going to hurt her a long time? >> i think it's devastating. i think her bigger problem is the criminal problem. >> you think this could be a criminal situation for hillary clinton? there is no reference of that from the investigators right now. >> the fbi's involved they only do criminal. maybe it's someone on our staff. but, look, it's either criminal or incompetent. it's gross incompetence or criminal and neither is acceptable to be president. i'm joined now by jeffrey lord former reagan white house political director. thank you for talking with us. >> nice to be here. >> just before we came to you of
course we heard what donald trump thinks of hillary clinton. he thinks she is in big trouble. do you agree with him? could it signal the end of her this e-mail saga? >> she has two problems. one is whatever the potential legal problem would be and the former attorney general of the united states and a federal judge has written in the "wall street journal" about this in a legal sense which are certainly of a concern. secondly she's got the political problem. i have a column tomorrow in "the american spectator" it recalls a column in january of 1996 in which the "new york times" columnist called hillary clinton a quote, unquote, congenital liar. he went through chapter and verse on. this my point to you on this is
she has this persona. every candidate has this persona. hers has evolved that she has trouble telling the truth on different issues. and unfortunately this plays right into that sort of persona. so i think she's got a potential legal problem here if i listen to the legal experts correctly and a serious political problem. >> let's go back to donald trump and his views on the issue of immigration. the most controversial suggestion he has made is that babies born in the u.s. will not become citizens automatically if he becomes president. we want to take a quick listen to what he had to say. >> you have people on the border and in one day they walk over have a baby and all of a sudden we're supposed to -- >> the citizenship for those babies you would revoke it now and retroactively? >> the 14th amendment is
questionable as to whether that baby is a citizen. >> the court has said it reads that this is a minority legal opinion you are talking about. >> there are many people that totally feel that -- >> they want it that way. >> amending is too big a deal. it would be two terms. i would be on my eighth year assuming everything went smoothly. to amend the constitution. >> takes a long time. >> but i believe you can win it legally. >> so, sir, what do you say to this? will it be possible to make a change like this snrz if --? >> yes, it will, there is disagreement on the 14th amendment. there is a clause in there about jurisdiction which constitutional experts say could in fact make what mr. trump is suggesting possible. it's very interesting that the 14th amendment did not give citizenship to native americans or indians as we say in america. that was not done until an act
of congress in 1923. and of course, if congress can make you a citizen, congress can also unmake you a citizen. so this is an argument that that is going to proceed. but already what donald trump has been saying has been getting support from constitutional experts here in this country. >> jeffrey lord thank you for joining us. >> thanks, rosemary. our international viewers can watch cnn's full interview with donald trump when we air it again in a few hours from now. watch it starting at noon in london right here on cnn. a new cnn/orc poll shows that hillary clinton has a lead over donald trump but it is shrinking dramatically. jeff zeleny has details from washington. >> it's all entertainment. i think he's having the time of his life. you know, being up on that stage. >> reporter: hillary clinton and other democrats have been all
smiles at donald trump and his influence on the presidential race. but look who is smiling now. donald trump is not only leading the republican field, he is within striking distance of clinton. >> we have turned over the server. >> someone has a problem and it's hillary. >> reporter: she now leads trump by six points, in june she had a 24-point advantage. in july, 16 points. is but clinton can't get ahead of herself. she has a democratic primary fight on her hands. she wins support from 47% of democrats, falling below 50% for the first time and leads bernie sanders by 18 points. but since july, clinton has fallen nine and sanders climbed ten. >> i think it is fair to say that there is a lot of excitement in the bernie sanders
campaign right now. >> reporter: one other warning sign for clinton, her unfavorable ratings are at a 14-year high with only 40% with a positive view of her. she has been unable to shake the controversy over the decision to use a private e-mail server as secretary of state. >> my personal e-mails are my personal business. >> did you wipe the server? >> with a cloth or something? >> i don't know how it works. >> i don't know how it works at all. >> reporter: her frustration showing through tuesday in nevada. >> nobody talks to me about it other than you guys. >> reporter: yet for all the questions, clinton is still in a position of strength. when tested against her potential g.o.p. rivals, she wins beating jeb bush by nine points and carly fiorina by 10. >> she is still in a stronger position than any of her rivals. but a majority of democrats,
53%, say they want vice president joe biden to get into the race. we'll find out next month if he will. jeff zeleny, cnn, washington. and coming up next here on "cnn newsroom," adulterers exposed. hackers reveal the identities of millions of married people using the dating website, ashley madison. a restaurant spokesman is facing the loss of his freedom. ahead the child pornography plea deal he's entering. we're back in a moment.

all. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. a cruise ship has just brought hundreds more migrants to a port city in degrees as european government officials prepare to meet to tackle the growing human smuggling problem. 160,000 migrants have landed in greece since january. a spokesman in thailand says monday's bombing in bangkok is unlikely to be linked to international terrorism. that is after thailand's police chief said at least ten people must have been involved in the attack and it was probably planned for at least a month. 20 people were killed and at least 120 were wounded in monday's bombing. archbishop des mont tutu remains in a hospital for two weeks of intense antibiotic treatment. he was admitted monday for an
undisclosed inflammation. he has battled prostate cancer for years. the extreme heat and unusually dry weather across parts of europe this summer are leading to major problems for some people. and we have our meteorologist pedram javaheri here to explain why, what the situation is and how it's looking ahead. >> the past couple of months we have seen little rainfall in europe akin to what is happening in the western u.s. but looking at the last 50 to 60 days. one to two storms have brought in good rainfall in europe. the farmers are taking a hit of several billions of dollars in losses in the wheat and apple and asparagus output. so severe drought, a big-time issue for a lot of people. i want to show you a video out of poland. that's warsaw. this is the longest river in
poland. these are the lowest water levels in 120 years. officials have been able to take out 100,000 cubic meters of trash out of this particular river. we'll put the maps in motion. a massive area of high pressure has been in place over the region. that means very dry conditions have persisted. the drought situation is very costly and akin to what's happening in california as far as the amount of losses that we're seeing. in march 2015, the droughts in the severe to moderate scale. in may it picks up in intensity. severe to extreme. july, extreme to exceptional. and large scale exceptional drought in place for august of 2016. so this is becoming a major issue for crop output in much of germany. farmers have harvested 30% less
wheat than in 2014. and serious concerns over feed for the cattle and livestock. and in the western u.s. this is from july -- the year 2000 where you see the water levels and this is lake mead. look around the edges of lake mead. i fast forward to july 2015. a significant reduction in the water level. this is a big-time concern. we are seeing it in a long-term pattern when it comes to drought in the southwestern u.s. and twin typhoons to tell you about. goni and atsani which is a supertyphoon which means category 4 equivalent or stronger. the concerns are around taiwan. ten days ago, a typhoon took out about 4 million people from power supply across taiwan. one of the largest large scale blackouts they have ever seen. so we're watching that for impact.
some time from saturday into sunday for eastern taiwan. >> when you look at taiwan, so vulnerable and had to put up with so much and here it is again. >> twice if two weeks. >> thanks so much, appreciate it. germany's parliament approved a third bailout for greece on wednesday saying the country deserves a new start. the move brings greece one step closer to making a more than $3.5 billion debt repayment to the european central bank by today's deadline. german lawmakers object to giving greece more money. alexis tsipras has vowed to stick to anti-austerity measures as a part of the bailout. greece may have clinched a deal but lost a lot of control to creditors. who is pulling all the strings? cnn's issa soares reports.
>> reporter: greece and the eurozone, taking center stage was a bitter row over tax hikes, pensions and black holes in balance sheets. but now they are putting on a show of unity. money is being exchanged, reforms are being accepted. as the curtain falls on the negotiations behind the scenes is where the drama is playing out. greece is playing unprecedented control from its creditors and it seems that mr. tsipras here is no longer dancing to his own tune. the country must now adhere to very strict rules. some greeks may find some of the controls aimed at opening up markets half baked like the one on bakeries. before bread could only be sold in bakeries and made to one of two standard weights. now bakers are told to rise to a new challenge, dropping the standardizations and allowing the bread to be sold in
supermarkets and other outlets. if that was hard to swallow, so is this, in greece, milk could only sit on the shelves for five days. all this makes importing milk difficult. so dairy products are 34% more expensive. now greece will have to adhere to eu rules which gives citizens access to a wider variety of cheaper dairy products. pharmacies will have to adapt. until now they could only be owned by a licensed pharmacist. the theory is by getting rid of the ownership restrictions it will open up the sector to a wider range of providers. then there's the matter of shopping. with a few exceptions all shops in greece are closed on a sunday which europe wants to change. critics say the regulations are tougher than the ones in place in germany or italy, where most
shops are allowed to be closed on a sunday. greece may find some of these reforms small and some may say petty. but if they want the troika to lend the money they have to accept the creditors are now in control. isa soares, cnn, london. still to come, the secret is out on millions of cheaters as hackers post personal data stolen from a website where married people to go to cheat on their spouses. we're back with that and more in just a moment. need to hire fast?
18-year-old african-american suspect they say had pointed a gun at officers arriving with a search warrant. protesters gathered at the scene at first peacefully but police say the crowd refused to disperse. and that is when police fired smoke and tear gas. nine people were arrested. time's up. that's the message from hackers who have followed through on their threat to release a whole lot of data from a cheater's dating website, ashley madison. they claimed to have posted the names of more than 30 million users on the dark web along with their credit card numbers, e-mail, and physical addresses. searchable databases have now made their way to main stream websites. our laurie siegel did some
digging. >> reporter: ashley madison is devoted to the wandering eye. anyone who is thinking of having an affair can sign up and find someone who is interested. this site is controversial but at the end of the day it has millions of users. a lot of people are interested. about a month ago, hackers threatened to relose personal information. they say they were able to breach the servers and get user data and they gave a warning. if you don't shut down the site we are going to post all of this data. the hackers made good on the promise and released all the information on the dark web. we saw 15,000 dot gov, dot military e-mails. a lot of people make up their e-mail addresses when they sign up for the site but it's what they can't make up is payment information that reveals very, very telling things like your
home address and phone number. they were able to get a bit of internal data from the company, bank account information, internal memos. one researcher said that hackers owned the server. they did a ton of damage. who is behind this? we don't know a lot about the group claiming to take credit, the impact group. they said people doing this are immoral and need to learn and ashley madison promises to keep their data safe. they put out a manifesto said find yourself in here and make amends. what's next for ashley madison? the company is doing damage control and trying to find the people behind this hack. they haven't been able to do that. representatives from ashley madison have said hacking is a criminal act and this is personal information that has been put out there on the web ripe for identity threat and if you are at home there might be
