and personally, believe that kevin cooper should die. and personally, believe that -- captions by vitac -- exhausted but elated. thousands of migrants arrive at the austrian border from hungary. we'll have the latest from the border. plus, the roots of the problem. the conflicts in syria and iraq, forcing millions from their homes, producing a title wave of migration. we'll look at what's driving this crisis. and why an iconic photo from the refugee crisis may become one of the world's most memorable. how images can shape history, coming up. then in the united states, as the manhunt continues for the killer of a police officer in the state of illinois, some analysts say this is an especially tough time to be a cop in the u.s. we look into that.
1:01 am
from cnn world headquarters here in atlanta, i'm george howell. this is "cnn newsroom." good day and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. we begin with the mass migration happening across europe. within the hour, the eu foreign policy chief is set to arrive in luxembourg to meet with eu ministers to address this growing problem. .crisis there, in the meantime, thousands of migrants who made it to the border between hungary and austria crossed overnight and there are many, many more on the way. buses from budapest dropped people off just before reaching the austrian border, then they walked the rest of the way. >> translator: the situation has been very bad but we were detained at the train station. we were at the camp for three days with no food or water. we are now supposed to be taken from the austrian border.
1:02 am
we heard from those already there there is no food or water. we don't know what's happening. >> according to austrian public televisio television, austrian police are expecting dozens more buses saturday, packed with asylum seekers. look at that. the hungarian foreign minister says they were uncooperative. >> actually, people, refugees and migrants who have been stuck in hungary became more and more aggressive, refusing the cooperation with hungarian authorities, not willing to be register, not willing to be fingerprinted, not will be to be photographed. they have refused to go into the refugee stations where the basic supply would have been for them. what happen, they started to march at the most important highway of the country and the
1:03 am
most important railway line of the country. an emergency situation has occurred. that's why we have decided to send buses and then deliver them to the austrian border where they wanted to go. >> here's a closer look at just how far many of these migrants have traveled. after leaving their own country, turkey is usually the first stop, then across the sea and across that dangerous journey into greece. macedonia is next and eventually on through serbia, then hungary, which is, of course, a critical transit point, the doorway to europe's passport free travel zone. now that many migrants have reached austria, their final destination is germany. a 2-year-old refugee who didn't survive that journey to europe has been laid to rest in syria. it was a heartbreaking scene, the father of elan kurdy
1:04 am
cradling his son and then saying good-bye. he was buried with his brother and mother back in kobani, syria. the image of elan's body washed ashore on a beach in turkey has become a symbol of the human tragedy. elan's aunt in canada says it's time for the world to step up and put an end to it. >> he was so proud of his kids. because they were the victim. they are the wakeup call, basically. he's proud of them, that somehow or someone is going to do something to this and end it. they need help. they should open their heart and their country to those people
1:05 am
who are suffering from the war, and they're taking that route and suffering even more. i don't want this for my people. enough is enough. >> elan's family was hoping to make it to canada. now his father says, quote, i don't want anything else from this world. and at that border between hungary and austria where so many people are trying to reach new life and to get into germany, our fred pligtgen is there. talk about the condition and what happens next for them. >> reporter: good morning, george. and the conditions here are
1:06 am
certainly a lot better than what these people had before. but you can tell, i was speaking to some of them who are making the walk, the final couple hundred meters to the austrian side, they are absolutely exhausted. we can pan around a little bit. many have gotten blankets, clothing, food, some of the children have gotten balls to play with. you can also tell people are absolutely exhilarated. they are happy, many of the kids are walking around, in spite of the fact that many of them have been camping out in the open at budapest in the train station for day. others were locked up in a train for several days. some of them made the journey on foot. therefore, they tell us they're totally exhausted but they're also grateful and happy to finally cross the border here into austria. to your question what happens next, i was just in touch with the commanding police officer
1:07 am
here for this area and they said of course they had to scramble when they heard that the hungarians were sending buses to pick up so many refugees. we had to call our colleagues and get them out of bed. there's eight donations rolling in. they say the next thing that happens is that the refugees who want to climb asylum in austria, they get taken to two different lockes that are close to here, one of them -- someone had a ball there. no problem. as you can see, people are trying to pass the time a little bit. >> yes. >> reporter: others who want to go to germany will be brute to the train station here, the local train station. they will be brute to vienna, to the west train station in vienna and trains will bring them to germany, probably to munich where they will be put into shelters there. there is a process in place. it is, of course -- i wouldn't say chaotic but this was put in place on the fly.
1:08 am
certainly if you look at the situation right now, it's very, very relaxed and people are happy to be here. >> to see the soccer ball tossed around. it's a good image when you consider what so many people have gone through over the past few days, weeks and months. fred, talk to us about the concern people had getting on these buses. were they worried about whether the buses could actually take them to that border where you are? >> well, they were very worried, very concerned and part of the reason is that manufacture them had felt that they had been betrayed by the hungarian government in instances before that. if you recall, many of them, of course, came to budapest, were camping out in front of the train station, weren't aloued in for a long period of time. then the railway company said you can buy tickets for the trains. they got on the trains and the trains took many of them to refugee camps within hungary. many trains were stopped at railway stations, people were
1:09 am
pulled off in places they didn't want to go either. there were people who stayed on the train and refused to get off. that train was put under siege. certainly the people had absolutely no faith. as many of the buses were coming here, it's about 60 or 70 buses from the hungarians that came here towards the border, we drove to next to one of the con invoices of those buses and they stopped somewhere along the way, possibly for a break or because one of the buses had broken down. people were concerned to get off there because they weren't sure whether or not they were being stopped short once again, george. >> fred pleitgen, thank you. you can learn much more about the migrant crisis at, including what awaits people as they actually make it all the way through europe to germany where many are trying to reach. just go to our special section at refuge.

hillary clinton and the controversy over her use of private e-mail. ahead on "cnn newsroom," an in depth analysis of the scandal including whether the presidential candidate may have broken the law. on't have to sto. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back. what you do with it is up to you. tylenol®.

1:14 am
welcome back to "cnn newsroom," i'm george howell. hillary clinton main republican rival is face something problems of his own right now. donald trump stumbled on a foreign policy question with a conservative radio host and he calls it a gotcha question. the presidential candidate fumbled when asked if he recognized the names of leaders of isis and other islamic militant groups. he also said he misheard a question from radio host hugh hewitt about the head of iran's elite qods forces. >> are you familiar with general soleimani. >> yes. >> he runs the qods forces. >> right. i think the kurds by the way have been horribly mistreated by -- >> not the kurds, the qods
1:15 am
forces, the iranian revolutionary guards, the qods forces, the bad guys. do you expect his behavior to change -- >> i thought you said kurds. i'm sorry. i thought you said kurds. >> trying to explain the mix-up later in an interview on msnbc's "morning joe." >> when you say qods versus kurds. he was a third rate radio announcer. every question was do i know this one, do i know that one? he worked hard on that. >> meanwhile, the latest poll by monmouth university shows 30% of likely republican voters are backing donald trump but ben carson is gaining on him. he came in second at 18% in that list. as hillary clinton hits more stops on her campaign trail, she faces more questions about the use of her private e-mail server when she was u.s. secretary of state. the democratic presidential
1:16 am
front-runner spent friday at a fund-raiser, a private fund-raiser in puerto rico. she also attended a roundtable on health care in san juan. but before that, clinton addr s addressed the e-mail controversy on an interview on msnbc. >> i certainly wish that i had made a different choice. i know why the american people have questions about it. i wanted to make sure that i answer those questions, starting with the fact that my personal e-mail use was fully above board. it was allowed by the state department as they have confirmed. but in retrospect, it certainly would have been better, i take responsibility. i should have had two accounts, one for personal and one for work related. >> in that interview, clinton says she's sorry the e-mail scandal has confused people. congress and the fbi are investigating the matter and the u.s. justice department is looking into whether the e-mails contained information that could
1:17 am
be deemed classified when she handled them. to answer some lingering questions and break down this whole controversy, our jonathan mann spoke earlier with two cnn experts. >> let's bring in cnn correspondent joe johns and paul kallen in new york. i want to ask you the most basic question of the server, joe johns. what is a private server, why did she have it and does everyone in washington have a private server? >> no. a private server is a computerized device that handles e-mail and it's certainly a little bit unusual for a government official to have one. and even more unusual for a government official to actually use that private e-mail server exclusively for their own e-mail. and that's what she did again and again over a long period of time. she says she did it out of
1:18 am
convenience. one of the reasons why is she wanted to be able to use just one e-mail for both her business communications as well as her personal communications, and that is what has caused the controversy. >> was there anything illegal about it then? and were it to be illegal now? >> it would be illegal now. regulations changed in 2014 that would prohibit the use of a server. this server, if there's a file room in your office where you work, in the back of it usually there's a billing kpoorter and that's the computer that sends all the information to the office. now, she had one of those in her house. but she was running the state department from that server. and the reason it's a terrible idea to do that, among other things, is that when classified information comes into the server, and you're communicating with somebody else, it certainly would open the possibility that
1:19 am
a hacker could get into the staple and steal information, valuable to them to use again people in the united states as opposed to using government servers which at least are supposed to be more secure and then you're communicating classified information, you're going from one classified computer to another. there's a lot of criticism. >> let me get to the substance of that. you're making a really good point. what was in the e-mails on that server? what change of stuff? >> all kinds of stuff. yes, there were business e-mails, certainly. there was also a lot of personal information in there, you know, she talked about tv shows she liked. she talked about -- on the business sigh, a gafiltafish controversy that started. she communicated on a wide rank of things. she said she never knowingly
1:20 am
communicated any information that was top secret or otherwise classified, however, there has been some question as to whether some of the information that she communicated actually should have been classified and some of it actually has been classified postscript, you know, after the fact when authorities started looking at some of the e-mails that she was corresponding with people with. >> was it illegal the way the information was handled then, same question, would it be illegal today? >> there was a big dispute about that in legal circles. some lawyers will say because she didn't knowingly communicate classified information, she didn't violate the law but there are other security experts and there are a huge number of statutes that apply to being negligent in how you classify information that suggest possibly a criminal charge could be lodged depending upon developments in the case. general petraeus was charged
1:21 am
with very serious crimes as a result of him keeping calendar information in a desk drawer at his house and seemingly less damaging information that might be in the secretary of state's e-mail server. so i think there's a lot more to be seen here in terms of where this scandal goes with respect to the presidential campaign. >> we are going to see more, joe johns, there are at least two investigations going on right now. let's talk about the investigations. one of them is being con ducked by members of congress. tell us about it. how big, how broad, how transparent, how bipartisan? or is it just an effort to make hillary clinton look bad by her political opponents? >> everything is politics when you get to capitol hill. this is an investigation into the benghazi situation and it's sort of morphed over into looking into hillary clinton's e-mails as well. it is bitterly divided between many democrats and many republicans.
1:22 am
and there's a great suspicion that politics is afoot on that. meanwhile, the fbi is also conducting a separate investigation, somewhat of a damage assessment to try to determine, among other things, as to whether the act had been broken or if someone could have invaded the server and gotten privileged information and used it. there's been a lot of suggestion coming out of the government that hillary clinton is not a target in any way of that investigation. >> i want to ask paul cowan about the investigation. we have learned one witness of the congressional investigation is taken advantage of his right under the american constitution to avoid testifying for fear of incriminating himself. it's called taking the fifth. taking the fifth amendment. does that suggest that that person is acknowledging there was wrong doing? what should we read into that?
1:23 am
>> what people normally read into it is he's trying to hide something. the law says, an assertion of the fifth amendment, you're not to assume anything. it's the right of an american citizen that's being forced to testify, the intention is he would be criminally investigated by someone he would say. we've seen this in the past with organized criminals and not really the top technical adviser to the secretary of state. the individual involved was active in her 2008 presidential campaign. he's the tech guy. and he's the one who set up the private server in her house and presumably handled security for it and presumably knows why she wanted to do this unusual setup of having all state department e-mails going into a private server in her house. >> that's the congressional investigation that he was supposed to be talking to. there is this fbi investigation going on. where is it headed?
1:24 am
could someone go to jail and could it be hillary clinton? >> well, the -- i think it's premature to say that hillary clinton could go to jail. i will say this, having been involved as a lawyer in similar kinds of investigations. what happens once justice and the fbi get involved, the ball starts rolling and there are thousands and thousands of e-mails on this server. clinton personnel and campaign people have said she wiped the server clean after turning over only a limited number of the e-mails that were present. now, will there be an allegation in the future that this was part of a cover-up because there was material on the server -- why would you wipe a server clean? that's, i'm sure, one of the things the congressional committee wanted toknowbout. and the other thing they did that i found to be interesting as a lawyer who does this kind of stuff in lawsuits, instead of turning over an electronic copy
1:25 am
of the e-mails that supposedly were the state department e-mails that are relevant, they printed them out on paper and turned over like 30,000 pages. what that does, yes, the law allows it but you have to rescan it all and hope it picks up every word in the huge database. you lose the metadata. the metadata tells you when any mail was prepare, whether there were changes or redactions. it gives you more information. when you turn it over in written form like this, you don't get the metadata. the clintons then backed up and says david kendall, their attorney has all of the e-mails on a famous thumb drive and he's willing to turn that over if there's any discrepancy, however, the thumb drive information is in what we call pdf format, no met da data on that either. they took the written stuff and put it on a thumb drive.
1:26 am
>> intentionally or unintentionally, they covered their tracks. this would be extraordinary to have about a high government official but she's a presidential candidate. this all comes down to the verdict of the american people. what impact is it going to have? >> well, the fascinating thing about this is, not only is she a former secretary of state, a former first lady, she's also a pretty darn good lawyer. so hillary clinton knows what's going on here. she knows also about the freedom of information act and other laws that require the retention of records and the release of them on demand. part of this obviously was to give hillary clinton the ability to hold off on certain information that she did not want released by the federal government, her personal information. they've even been quite obvious and up front about it. they say they deleted personal e-mails. so what we have now is a debate
1:27 am
over whether it was just personal or there was something else afoot. there's also a question as to whether this fbi investigation will be able to reconstruct from the server that was wiped, any and all of those e-mails. so they can get to the bottom of it. a lot of questions there. on the political side, it becomes a continuing problem for the former secretary of state. she's asked about it at every stop. i was in iowa with her last week where she got questions there. and it will continue to dog her and it looks as though this campaign is realizing they're going to have to continue to answer the questions. she's changed her tact and her tone just a bit. she's been leaning toward an apology though, not a complete one, and she's been leaning towards saying she understands why people are concerned about it. it's the transparency that's the
1:28 am
problem. >> thank you for being with us to explain it. >> john mann reporting there. later this hour, sometimes a photo can be too powerful to ignore. we'll look at how iconic images have impacted history as we broadcast this forecast around the world on cnn international and cnn usa. oh, look. we have a bunch of...

1:32 am
people off just before the border. the passengers then walked the rest of the way. according to austrian public television, austrian police are expecting dozens more buses saturday alone. at the u.s. open, tennis star rafael nadal was defeated by fabio fognini in a late-night matchup on friday. the two-time champion raced to a two-set lead but then came crashing down during the third set and went on to lose the next two sets as well. nadal now finishes the season without a grand slam title. the salmonella outbreak in the united states has killed one person and sickened hundreds of others. health officials say the outbreak has been linked to cucumbers grown in mexico. one company based in san diego has voluntarily recalled its cucumbers because they may be contaminated. the syrian toddler whose body was found washed up on a turkish beach has been laid to rest back in syria.
1:33 am
aylan kurdi's father cradled his body before his 4-year-old brother and mother were buried on friday. his body washed ashore on turkey. it called new attention to the migrant crisis in europe. the migrant crisis could be partially blamed on isis. experts say the terror group is pushing its opponents out of syria and that could be considered a win for the terror group. brian todd explains. confronting police. throwing stones. getting tear gassed, slammed up against fences, scrambling to board trains. they're desperately walking long distances on highways, suffering and dying along the way. hundreds of thousands of migrants have streamed into europe. the largest influx there since the end of world war ii. where are they coming from? where are they going? according to europe's border
1:34 am
monitoring agency the top countries they're coming from are syria, afghanistan and pakistan. >> this is the route where most of the syrian migrants are coming from. they are traveling, let me show you where they're traveling. they're either coming from syria by land through greece, some of them are coming -- and then across to greece, up the republic of macedonia through the western balkans and getting stopped in hungary. they want to go onward through austria, germany is their ultimate destination. >> reporter: germany expects roughly 800,000 migrants by year's end, almost as many as the population of san francisco. the fact that so many are now fleeing syria has analysts pointing to a common and disturbing threat. >> i think without a doubt isis is a major factor here that's contributing to this crisis. >> reporter: there are other factors. the atrocities of bashar al assad's regime, the turmoil in libya. analysts say the war against isis which president obama labeled a jv team last year has
1:35 am
made syria almost uninhabitable for anyone not wanting to fight. analysts say this refugee crisis is a win for isis. >> it's created friction within governments and then among them in europe. i think as isis looks at this, it's chaos in europe right now. and it's being played out hourly around the clock on television shows. this is -- it's a psychological and information victory at least in the short run for isis. >> reporter: a victory for isis and possibly another opportunity. with so many migrants streaming into europe, it's easier for isis to infiltrate these grupps, possibly smuggle their sympathizers or maybe their operatives into europe with them. brian todd, cnn, washington. the russian president vladimir putin says the west bears blame for the migrant crisis. he says it's a predictable
1:36 am
result of western policies in the northeast and africa. he singled out the united states for the harshest criticism. we've heard similar accusations from turkish president erdogan. >> one expert says now is not the time for finger pointing. he says it would have been very hard for any government to predict what has been an extraordinary wave of migration. >> the unintended consequences of actions are really anticipate. nobody anticipated the fall of the berlin wall in 1989, although people knew communism would fail. there were similar events, for example, in european history in post world war ii and the soviet union invaded hungary or
1:37 am
czechoslovakia we have a massive outflow of people or the event where we had hundreds of thousands move out and then move in in. i think this is a lesson for everyone, before action is taken to try and foresee where it will go. but i think, again, as i said, it was very hard to predict. >> the u.n. says the majority of syrian refugees have settled in turkey, jordan, lebanon and iraq. if you look at these numbers, more than 4 million syrians are now in those four countries alone. it can be hard to wrap your mind around the incredible number of people, the men, women and children that are trying to make this dangerous journey into europe. but each of them has a very important story, of struggle, of hope. arwa damon shows us who some of these migrants are.
1:38 am
>> reporter: the flood of humanity making its way across europe is mostly made up from refugees, from the war zones that are iraq and syria. they are the father who carried his daughter on his shoulders, because back home she was his little princess and he just wants to give her that back again. they are the mother with the law degree who cries every single time she talks or even thinks about her children that she had to leave back home, making the trek on her own in hopes they will be able to join her. they are youth, students, groups of young men who also want to bring their families over to europe, who are looking for opportunities that no longer exist for them in their respective countries. things like jobs, education and just the chance of living a dignified and respectable life. they are people fleeing violent
1:39 am
over which they have no control. people who don't want to die, who don't want to watch their children die. yes, parents make the impossible decision of bringing over their little ones, their babies, because they they keep telling us, if they were to stay back home, they believe they would end up dead. why not take the chance and try to make it to europe? there are people from as far away as myanmar and afghanistan, various african nations who are fleeing poverty, corrupt and repressive regimes, people of different backgrounds, from all walks of life who share one thing in common, a belief, a dream, that europe will offer them a future. any future. if you want to help the refugees, you can find information, a list on our website, for grupps that are working to assist them from teams that are dedicated to rescuing migrants in the

welcome back to "cnn newsroom," i'm george howell. investigators in the u.s. state of illinois say they are close to naming suspects in the murder of a police officer. authorities say they have new surveillance images of people they believe are suspects in this shooting of lieutenant joe glinowicz. the officer's pistol was also found at the scene in fox lake. >> i can confirm it was the officer's weapon that was recovered at the scene. we received confirmation yesterday. we're following up on some forensics from that weapon as we speak. >> a source involved in the investigation tells cnn that the
1:44 am
officer's gun was fired but it's not clear who pulled the trigger. so far this year, at least two dozen police officers in the u.s. have been killed in the line of duty. that number is actually lower than past years. but officers say they are on edge because of the sentiment that's behind many of the shootings. our nick valencia has this story. >> reporter: a manhunt in illinois, for three wanted in connection with the killing of a veteran police officer. a sheriff's deputy gunned down at a gas station near houston, texas. a memphis policeman shot and killed during a traffic stop in tennessee. and that's just in the last five weeks. already this year, at least 24 officers in the united states have been shot and killed in the line of duty. by comparison, it's still less than the number of officers shot and killed all of last year when 47 were victim to gunfire. according to the nonprofit officer down memorial page.
1:45 am
while the numbers may be down, it's a sentiment of vulnerability among officers in 2015 that's cause for concern, says cnn law enforcement analyst cedric alexander. >> there's some real challenges out there in this country right now. it is a very tough time to be a police officer at this moment. >> the only charged rhetoric of the movement has been about holding officers accountable, has it been about fair police contracts, independent investigators and body cameras? >> activist and organizer deray mckesen says the black lives matter movement is not about the attacks on police. >> it is specifically about ending violence. >> even so, chants like this -- and ominous graffiti like this in texas have made more and more cops on edge. >> this rhetoric has gotten out of control. we've heard black lives matter. all lives matter. cops lives matter, too.
1:46 am
why don't we drop the qualifier and say lives matter. >> the seeming increase in charged language across the united states may not be to blame for police officer deaths as some might suggest. certainly for police officers all across the country, the current climate is enough to take notice. nick valencia, cnn, atlanta. residents of beijing have become accustomed to smoggy skylines for years but that changed temporarily. derrick? >> it did, george. september 2nd, 1945, 70 years ago to the date where japan surrendered in world war ii. beijing and the china military, they wanted to mark that anniversary with some sort of a parade. and in order for the world to see china at its best, specifically beijing, they closed factories across the air, coal-powered factories that cause this ever-present smog
1:47 am
over the city and they also banned half of beijing's 5 million cars in order to help clear up the skies overhead. the morning of the parade, that was this thursday, the air quality index dropped to a beautiful 17 out of a scale of 500. people even coined the term parade blue because they never get to see that color in the skies. in fact, blue skies are so rare that social media was on fire with some of these beautiful fot to -- photos of the skyline. this is what it looked like on friday once they re-opened the coal-burning power plants and allowed the other 2.5 million cars to re-enter the roadways. let's take it back again. this is what it appeared like on thursday in beijing, a beautiful city. look at those blue skies overhead. again on friday, settling back into that hazy, smoggy grayish look and feel. the air quality index, this is a
1:48 am
measure that meteorologists and environmentalists measure the particulates or the pollutants in the air. it goes from 1 to 500, 500 being the most severe. 1 being the cleanest of air. on thursday morning, it dropped to about 17. throughout the afternoon it was about 58. it was very healthy in terms of the scale. but the second those factories opened right back up and the 2.5 million cars got back on the highway, it shot back up to the middle 100s. that's unhealthy for sensitive groups like the elderly and children as well. not the greatest situation there. we've seen smog in that region before. it looks like it's here to stay. we really can just say that, george, you know, beijing has cleaned up its act because it was really just putting on a show to make sure some of the visuals across the world were seen as the cleanest city as possible. >> that blue sky. >> so blue there. rarely seen. >> thank you so much.

magazines in general was indifferent. she didn't know quite what to make of it. >> reporter: in 1930, long after the worst days of lynchings, this photo from indiana spurred an uproar as proof that brutal racism was not a thing of the past and it pairs with this one from 1957 of angry whites shouting at one of the first black students at a formerly white high school in arkansas. protests have produced some of the most enduring images. 1989 after a massacre by chinese troops in tiananmen square, one man squared off against a line of tanks. his identity has never been known, his brave stand never forgott forgotten. pictures of war have had immense impact from the birth of photography, the civil war, world war i, world war ii. in vietnam, modern media gave them even more power, a monk
1:55 am
setting himself ablaze, a vietcong assassin being executed by a south vietnamese officer. a 9-year-old girl running from napalm. she spoke many years later about that haunting scene. >> it's my message to people when they see that picture, try not see her as crying out in pain, in fear and try not to see her as a symbol of war but try to see her as a symbol for peace. >> reporter: and so another symbol joins the sad collection of split seconds in time that prove timeless, unimaginable and unforgettable. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >> kim fuke is spe-- kim phuc i

migrants by the bus load, thousands finally arrive to austria, after making that taxing journey through hungary. we take you to that border to bring you their stories. as these developments unfold, european leaders meet to find a solution to the issues dividing the continent. and a heartbreaking good-bye to the toddler whose final image put a face to this crisis laid to rest by his distraught father. the sole survivor of his family's escape from syria. i'm george howell, this is "cnn newsroom."
2:01 am
welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. we start this hour with the mass migration that is happening across europe. thousands of migrants made it to the border between hungary and austria. they crossed overnight and there are many, many more on the way. buses from budapest dropped people off just before reaching the austrian border, then the d walked the rest of the way. austrian are still expecting dozens more buses saturday, all packed with asylum seekers. >> translator: the situation has been very bad while we were detained at the train station. we were at the cam for three days without food or water, ever since entering hungary. we are now supposed to be taken to the austrian border. we hear from those there there is no food and water. we don't know what's happening. >> hundreds of migrants set out
2:02 am
on foot from budapest earlier, hiking along the side of highway for up to nine hours. and at that border between hungary and austria, our fred pleitgen is standing by. we just told the story about how people have walked for hour after hour, trying to make their way to where you are now. talk to us about the condition of people as they arrive and then what happens next? >> reporter: people here certainly are very weak, they are very tired, obviously but they are exhilarated. they are in the process of where they will be bused next to a railway station to be put on to trains to vienna and germany and then some of them who want to stay in austria will be brought to a temporary shelter here. they are tired but happy and exhilarated. it's amazing to see the folks
2:03 am
that come in from hungary, who get off these buses, who have smiles on their faces as they see the border to austria in front of them. see that they can walk across. they immediately received food and clothing when we got off the buses. some of them received blankets because it was quite cold and rainy. the austrians set up a good infrastructure here. if you look behind me, there's a whole state-of-the-art area from the austrian red cross where they're handing things out. they have medical personnel to give people medical attention. i spoke to the chief police officer who was in charge of this operation. he said, look, we were absolutely surprised by the fact that the hungarians all of a sudden brought in buss to take all these people over here. he said he had to call up his colleagues and get them out of their sleep to get up at 5:00 in the morning on a saturday and come here and to set this up. therefore, it's going very well. and if you look at the state of the people, you know, yesterday i was still in hungary, in the place where that train was stuck, where people were under
2:04 am
siege inside the train. and to see the mood there and now to see the mood here, it's just so much more relaxed, so much more easy going. you can really feel that the folks who have made it here feel they're finally in a safe place. george? >> you talk about those buses, fred. talk to us first of all about were people concerned about getting on the bus, did they believe that the bus would actually take them to the border? >> reporter: no, they certainly weren't. they didn't believe that the bus would take them to the border, at least they weren't sure. they were questioning will this bus really go where we want it to go? quite frankly many have said we've had some pretty bad experiences with the hungarian authorities as far as that's concerned. many of them bought train tickets to get to budapest, then they were told they could get tickets to go to germany. they bought these, some for hundreds of dollars. then they were told you can't go to the border because they had
2:05 am
to register here at the border in hungary. that is something they didn't want to do. so they had no faith in the fact that these hungarian buses would actually take them to where they want to go. i was driving past a convoy of these buses and all of a sudden it stopped because either a vehicle was broken down, maybe they were just taking a break. people were very, very concerned when they were ushered off those buses. they later were able to get back on. of course they didn't trust in the fact that they would actually be brought where they want to go. now, however, you can feel that the situation here is a lot less tense. you have a lot of children playing, people with smiles on their faces. it really is a difference of night and day compared to how things were on the hungarian side of the border, george. >> an hour ago we saw in your live shot a couple of kids kicking around a soccer ball. much better scene, you know, to see that, considering what so many people have gone through. fred pleitgen, live at the
2:06 am
austrian/hungary border. thank you so much for yr reporting. eu foreign ministers are in luxembourg this hour kicking off a second day of informal meetings aimed at finding solutions to the problems. germany's foreign minister says member states need to stop the finger pointing and now focus on how they can actually solve the migrant crisis, the worst crisis the world has seen since world war ii. a short time ago, hungary's for example says his country should not be criticized for following eu regulations. listen? >> what has been happening in hungary since last night is a consequence of two things. first a failed migration policy of the european union and the second one is the irresponsible statements made by politicians. what has been happening in hungary since last night is a consequence of these two things. >> hungary has been highly critical of germany's decision
2:07 am
to take more refugees. hungary's foreign minister has even accused countries of creating unrealistic dreams and hopes in people. facing krit sim of his own, british prime minister david cameron now says his country will accept thousands more syrian refugees. he said the image of the toddler, aylan kurdi on a beach in turkey will stay with him for a very long time. >> as a father, and as a human being you can't help but be moved by these terrible pictures, seeing the picture of that poor child on the beach in turkey, those images will remain with all of us for a very, very long time. but the question you have to ask, not just as a father but as a prime minister, is what are the actions we can take that will really make a difference? and that is why, in taking additional refugees, because of course everyone we take we can offer a new chance an a new life to, i think it's important we take them from syrian refugee
2:08 am
camps. i want to send the message out that the best way to get a new life is not to make this perilous journey, not to set out from the turkish coast or another coast or trail across continents and put your lives and your family's lives at risk. that's why in the additional refugees we'll be taking, we want to take them directly from jeffrey camps rather than do anything that would encourage these desperately unsafe journeys that are leading to these appalling tragedies. >> many countries in europe see the migrant crisis from different perspectives. i'm joined now by timothy snyder. he is professor of history at yale university. timothy, good to have you with us. so, you know, you've seen a major divide, obviously in europe. you've described this as a critical point for the dna of the continent for countries like hungary that watch the to resist mass migration and germany that want to accept the many people
2:09 am
we're seeing cross europe. what more can you tell us about that? >> the migration and refugee crisis arrives at a time, as you say, of deep internal tension within the european union. when, for other reasons, populous authorityism of the right has become quite popular. you see the complexes of the sources very well in hungary. hungary which has probably gone the furthest of eu members from some right wing -- but it's not just hungary. the idea that europe is for the europeans or that europe is just for the christians is something which is fairly widespread. one sees it as far afield as france. what we have is a general european test between those who are still in some kind of european community and those who want to move the nation states back towards traditional identities with traditional
2:10 am
borders. >> you can find those far right political feel innings countries like france. you bring up hungary. in this case. but even as you see the politics on the surface, we've seen images, we've seen people within hungary walking up to the highway, helping people. even within the country there's a divide. >> this has been one of the most heartening things across europe, the way that civil society has been out front of government. this is true in hungary but interestingly it's also true in austria. it's the fact that civil society was more receptive to refugees that prepared the response you were talking about earlier. we all know about the icelandic families that have volunteered to help and german families. >> what are your thoughts about hungary's decision to now start using these buss to move people about? >> well, hungary is looking for a way to pretend that none of
2:11 am
this is actually happening. hungary would like some kind of world in which it's never going to have to face these kind of situations, hence the symbolism of the fences between hungarian and southern borders and the idea that this is all somebody else's fault, hence the general desire to move things on. the hungarians will have to start considering this as a matter of policy and not just a matter symbols which is someone else's responsibility. >> countries from the united kingdom, even the united states have also been criticized for not doing more given the mass migration. what do you believe the roles of these countries should be? >> well, if you take a big step back, there's one thing the europeans in general do have right. that is they're trying to have a policy on climate change. if we take a big step back, what's happened in syria has a huge amount to do with the decertification of the country in the last five years which is one of the factors that led to the civil war. in the long term, so long as north america and the european
2:12 am
union in china and so on make the south warmer and harder to live in, we'll have these crises again and again. the second defactor is the war itself. as long as the war goes on, we'll have refugees. the long-term way not to have a refugee crisis to resolve the war. here you see the responsibility of countries, i think russia is probably foremost, that are supplying the war. it seems to me that insofar as you're providing military aid, you should probably also be taking responsibility for refugees. >> but again, as far as countries like the united states and the uk, what do you think the role should be there? >> i think there's a lot of room for creative policy in the united states. we have a huge capacity to assimilate migrants from errant backgrounds. there are big american cities that could probably use these migrants. we played a major role in syria now. we could take ai corresponding number of migrants.
2:13 am
>> thank you so much for your insight on this continuing issue in europe. >> it's been my pleasure. an egyptian billionaire wants to buy a mediterranean island and turn it into a new home for migrants. while the idea may sound outlandish, nijeb sawiri says all he needs is permission from greece and italy to do it. >> it's a simple idea. greece is suffering. italy has the problem, too. they have islands that are not inhabited and already the refugees are in greece and in italy, you know. it's a simple solution. they sell the islanded to me. i'll make a temporary shelter, a marina for the boats to land there. i'll employ the people to build their own houses. a school, hospital, a university, i'll build a hotel.
2:14 am
i'll give them jobs, until the countries come back. once this is done, they can have the choice to either go back to their country or stay on this island. the problem is in the politicians. i sometimes think politicians don't have a heart. you know? what i need is simple. i'm going to pay for it. if they have these islands that can take 100,000 or 200,000 people, all i need is the permission to put these people on this island. after that i don't need anything anymore from them. i'll pay them for the island. i'll provide the jobs, take care of all the logistics and i know i can do that. >> neither greece nor italy have responded to the offer but sawiris hopes the media attention will help persuade the governments. if you want to help the refugees, go to our website. we have a list of groups dedicated to rescuing migrants

there's a manhunt under way in the u.s. state of illinois. investigators say they have uncovered new evidence in the murder of a police officer. he was shot to death earlier this week on his way to work. in fox lake, not far from the city of chicago. police won't say what they discovered but they do say they are close to naming suspects. ryan young has more. >> reporter: new clues in massive manhunt for three cop killers, officials now reviewing several new videos that may help identify the suspects. >> i think we're optimistic about all of these videos right now, because they all -- they all come together chronologically. if they're not separate, they're not independent. there are different cameras that are putting a story line together. >> reporter: investigators say the videos come from multiple sources, including private residents, businesses and traffic cameras.
2:19 am
and there are department of transportation cameras that report at intersections throughout the day at fox lake. someone at the department of transportation decided to hold this video and now has provided it to detectives. and cameras are everywhere throughout this community. investigate ares have confirmed to us that the fbi is actually using technology to stitch together a time line from before and after the murder to hopefully get more clues. investigators returned to the crime scene friday afternoon, hoping to discover new evidence while police are confirming that fox lake officer joe gliniewicz's .40 caliber handgun was found at the shooting scene. a source tells cnn it had been fired. >> it was found near the lieutenant's remains. i can't reveal how many times it was fired. >> reporter: we also learned police are asking from dna samples from everyone they interview, hoping to find a link to the suspects. authorities are offering a $50,000 reward for any information that leads to an
2:20 am
arrest, with thousands of tourers expected, an arrest couldn't come enough. >> everyone cares deeply. this is a bad situation. i think people will still come out and enjoy themselves, keep their eyes open. i don't think even he would want us to stop. >> reporter: brian young, cnn, fox lake, illinois. >> now to u.s. politics. presidential candidates on both sides of the political fence are trying to explain themselves. for donald trump, it was about the stumble that he made over foreign policy, a question about that and for hillary clinton who is once again about the e-mail controversy. suzanne malveaux has this story. >> what i thought -- >> reporter: donald trump suddenly on defense, getting hit with specific foreign policy questions. >> so the difference between hezbollah and hamas does not matter to you yet but it will? >> it will when it's appropriate.
2:21 am
i will know more about it than you know and believe me, it won't take me long. >> reporter: trump at one point confusing an ethnic group, the iraqi kurds with the qods. >> are you familiar with general soleimani. >> yes. go ahead, tell me. >> he runs the qods forces. >> yes, okay. right. i think the kurds by the way have been horribly mistreated by us. >> not the kurds, the qods forces. >> saying today he misheard the question. >> i thought he said kurds, the third rate radio announcer. >> reporter: the conservative radio host late iter asking the same questions to a trump opponent. >> i don't think they're gotcha questions at all. i think that this is at the heart -- the questions you're asking are at the heart of the threat that we face.
2:22 am
>> reporter: trump's other gop rivals eager to pounce. >> he ought to know who the players are for sure. i'm sure he'll bone up on this now. >> if you don't know the answer to those questions you're not going to be able to serve as man km commander in chief. >> reporter: also, hillary clinton. >> at the end of the day i'm sorry this has been confusing to pell and has raised a lot of questions. >> reporter: and faced with the possibility of vice president b joe biden jumping into the race. >> he has to mack a really difficult decision. you can see him struggling with it. i wish the best for him and his family. >> reporter: biden says it will depend on his emotional energy. >> but i have to be honest with you and everyone who's come to me, i can't look you straight in the eye and say now i know i can do that. this is as honest as i can be. >> reporter: here in iowa, bernie sanders is just seven points behind hillary clinton,
2:23 am
doing his own reset. >> me, grouchy? >> reporter: the senator acknowledges he needs to grow his ground game fast. >> we are growing much faster than we have the infrastructure to organize. but i think the grass roots movement you saw out there, that's what's going to win it for us. >> reporter: suzanne malveaux, cnn, tama, iowa. saudi arabian prince met with barack obama at the white house on friday. the saudi foreign minister says his country believes the agreement will contribute to the security and stability in the middle east. he said mr. obama assured the king the deal prevents iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and provides sanctions for violations. u.s. officials say china could face sanctions as early as next week over cyber attacks on american businesses. the sanctions would be the first time that the united states has imposed a tangible penalty on china for the hacks tied to
2:24 am
beijing itself. still the source says no final decision has been reached. meanwhile, experts say the sanctions may be put on hold as a negotiating tool after the chinese president xi jinping visits the white house at the end of the month. speaking of beijing, the capital city there, it is back under a cloud of haze after a short-lived blue sky that grazed the city for nearly two weeks. government shut down hundreds of factories and banned millions of people from driving ahead of china's huge military parade on thursday. these images that you see here show the view before that parade and then just after, one day. for more on this, let's turn to meteorologist derek van dam. the striking difference. >> smoking mirrors. it's so amazing for the residents of beijing. they rarly see the blue skies. when they get that opportunity, they're snapping photos, posting them on instagram, social media,
2:25 am
whatever you can imagine. they're so excited to see that blue color. >> it's a beautiful city but you can never see it. >> it is. china was marking the 70th anniversary of japan's surrender in world war ii. they shut down the factories, the coal-burning factories in and around beijing that are often responsible for the thick layer of smog. they also banned half of beijing's 5 million cars from the streets. guess what, it worked. they coined the term of that sky colored blue called parade blue. because it coincided with that military parade that you are seeing on your screen. you know what it looks like when the skies are clear but this is what it looks like when they open up the factories and allow the 2.5 million or so cars to re-enter the highways and biways of china's largest cities. let's take it back a notch. this is what it looked like on
2:26 am
thursday, chris cal clear blue skies, low air quality index, about 17, in fact. you re-open the factories and the thick, hazy fog or smog settles in. i talked about the air quality index, aqu, meteorologists and environmentalists use this as a measure of pollutants or particulates within the air. it ranges from 1 being the healthiest to 500 being the most unhealthy. and i did a quick jump from thursday afternoon into friday. you can see how quickly it spiked. that ended that two weeks of smog-free air that beijing residents got to enjoy. this was a time lapse showing you what it's been doing. this is currently where it's at. that's right. you can see the difference when you close off factories and then re-open them. it allows that smog to settle back in. that is a common site in beijing, unfortunately, george. we wish we could keep this a
2:27 am
more permanent feature of that wonderful city. >> i'm sure people would love to see the blue skies more. >> including some of our correspondents over there. >> yes. derek van dam, thank you so much. you're watching "cnn newsroom." still ahead this hour, thousands of migrants cross from hungary into austria overnight. more from the border as "newsroom" continues.
2:28 am

2:30 am
i was going to the library to do my homework. it was a little bit of a walk to get to the bus stop. i had to wait in line to use the computer. took a lot of juggling to keep it all together. what's possible when you have high-speed internet at home? the library never closes. it makes it so much better to do homework when you're at home. internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. we welcome our viewers here in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom," i'm george howell. we continue with our coverage of the migrant crisis that is engulfing europe. thousands of people crossed into austria at the border with
2:31 am
hungary. overnight, many of them began walking after waiting for days at a train station in budapest. vowing to travel the more than 240 kilometers or about 150 miles to vienna on foot. or wa damon traveled the route with many of the migrants, eventually joining on a bus to austria. >> reporter: they're coming across the border right now. they have to walk the last portion of the trip. it is raining. it is pretty miserable but very few of them care because finally, they have left hungary behind. they have left the horrific conditions they say they were living in there behind. now they're walking here into austria. they will be boarding buses, taken to a registration center, not too far away from here. in that building they're being given tea, clothing, blankets. these people just today have had such a long journey. they left the train station in
2:32 am
budapest, the collettety train station, they walked for eat or nine hours deciding to do the trek because they were simply fed up for waiting aaround for the various politicians and european leaders to make up their minds about how to hand this will ongoing migrant and refugee crisis. taking matters into their own hands, trekking with their little children who they are now carrying across, exhausted, many of them from the trip understandably so. but now finally they've made it. we're coming across with one group. we were asking them, you know, how are you feeling right now? they were incredulous, they were asking is this really austria? have we made it? when they realized they had, you saw euphoria cross is over their faces, one woman saying, i just feel relieve. i feel like i can breathe again. it's been a difficult, arduous
2:33 am
journey for them. they've been caught in a lot of political ping-pong when it come to this. they believe hungary has been trying to block their journey to austria, on to germany. this may not be a solution but we do expect well over a thousand people to cross into austria. so relieved and hoping that at least right now at this point they can begin building those initial little small first steps to building a future for themselves and for their children. >> arwa damon reporting for us there. for much of the world, the desperation of thousands of migrants really hit home this week with the death of a toddler who washed ashore in turkey. aylan kurdi, his 4-year-old brother and their mother were all buried friday.
2:34 am
hala gorani has more on the heartbreaking image of aylan that has really shocked the world. we do want to warn you, the content in this report is disturbing. >> reporter: aylan kurdi's final journey was supposed to get him to safety, away from war-torn country. instead, he ended in his funeral, the 2-year-old buried alongside his brother and mother, his broken father, abdullah kurdi, mourning the loss of his entire family. >> translator: ask there someone whose children are not valuable to them? the children enrapture you, wake you up at morning, daddy, i want to play in the water. is there anything in the world better than this? everything is gone. >> reporter: the family had been trying to reach greece by boat when it capsized. kurdi tried desperately to save his wife and two sons but was unsuccessful. the heartbreaking picture of
2:35 am
aylan's lifeless little body washed up on a turkish beach was shared millions of times on social media. seen around the world. the image becoming a symbolof a humanitarian crisis. bigger than any in europe since world war ii. prompts some world leaders to open up their borders to more refugees and rethink how best to help thousands of people fleeing from war. according to turkish media, four syrian nationals have been arrested in connection with kurdi's family's deaths and nine others whose bodies also washed ashore. that is little consolation for the devastated father who now vows to stay in kobani with his family and asks to one day be buried alongside them. hala gorani, cnn, berlin. let's take a closer look now at what's next for the thousands
2:36 am
of migrants who have made it to austria and what's next for people like little aylan's father who has given up all hope of finding a new life outside the war-torn country that he was trying to leave. joel millman, a senior spokesman with the international organization for migration joins by phone. good to have you with us, sir. this is a story really of people who have risked it all, some people were able to find safer ground, some have died. as i mentioned, some have simply given up hope. as you see this picture unfolding, what do you make of it? >> well, you know, almost 3,000 have died already this year, which is fast approaching the total for last year, which was a record for the mediterranean as far as we know. we are encouraged, i would say, by the world's reaction. it's shocking, really, that photo, especially coming just a few days after 71 bodies were found suffocated in a vehicle
2:37 am
trying to enter austria or trying to enter europe, the eu from hungary. the conditions now really have alerted the world and we see a lot of people beginning to talk about changing certain regulations, modifying, fema opening settlement quote tos. there are so many things that had caused so much resistance between both sides, various sides in europe, it seems to be giving way to a unified feeling that we just have to do something. that encourages us, however, we should have no illusion about the size of the problem and how many people are going to have to be managed in a short period of time. you know, our organization and many others stand ready to revise and help anyway we can. we look forward to this being a turning point. >> joel, i want to dig a little deeper on that, because, again, officials are meeting in luxembourg. as we speak trying to find a
2:38 am
solution. this really is a critical point in europe between countries like hungary that want to resist the migrants and germany that wants to accept hundreds of thousands of them. you say that your group helps to give some guidance. what would you suggest? what could be a solution here? >> well, we have suggested for quite some time that europe needs to understand that they're at the dawn of a demographic trend, actually we're well into it now. it's really, because of changes in technology and transportation and communication and also money exchange around the world, the world's poor are in a position to move much more easily than they were even five years ago, much less a generation ago. so you have europe with a falling birth rate and an extreme need for new members to join its work force, especially if they can do so cheaply at one end of the extreme and others you have regions of africa,
2:39 am
