with near 0% support in the latest polls governor scott walker has jumped out of the race for u.s. president and has advice for remaining candidates. plus, a rock star's reception in cuba for pope francis as he wraps up his visit there and heads to the united states. and coming up later, thousands of people have escaped from north korea but their families refuse to believe they defected. cnn goes inside the isolated country. hello and welcome to our viewers here in the united states. of course all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> thanks for joining us. we're here for you for the next four hours. this is "cnn newsroom."
9:01 pm
so the list of republicans hoping to be the next u.s. president just getting shorter and shorter. isn't it? wisconsin governor scott walker is suspending his campaign and he's urging other republicans to do the same. >> walker says voters should focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive alternative to the current front-runner. >> ronald reagan was good for america because he was an optimist. sadly, the debate taking place in the republican party today is not focused on that optimistic view of america. instead, it has drifted into personal attacks. in the end, i believe that the voters want to be for something and not against someone. instead of talking about how bad things are, we want to hear how we can make them better for everyone. we need to get back to the basics of our party.
9:02 pm
>> and it's worth noting walker was considered a top tier candidate just a few months ago but his support has dwindled. he joins former texas governor rick perry and dropping out of the race. jeb bush was campaigning in iowa on monday when he got word of walker's announcement. take a listen. >> there have been, in the last couple of weeks, some surprises in this campaign. no, i'm not talking about donald trump for a change. in fact, i probably won't talk about him. tonigh tonight if you don't mind. i'm talking about two principle centered effective governors that are no longer running for president. i wanted to make note of the fact that rick perry and scott walker who announced today that he's getting out of the race which was a surprise to me both were great. and are. scott is going to serve and continue to do great work in wisconsin. are great public servants.
9:03 pm
>> let's bring in cnn political commentator ben ferguson to talk about what's happening with republicans. he joins us live from dallas, texas. ben, great to see you. i want to be transparent here and let you know that today i became a u.s. citizen. all right? i've taken the test. i learned all the material, i brought all my materials and flag here. >> congratulations. >> thank you for that. i will be voting in this election. i'm more interested than usual. >> sure. >> you have to say about all of this. let's talk about what's happening with the republican. scott walker had a stunning drop in support since trump entered the scene. he was polling at 20% among conservatives in march to less than 1% before dropping out. how surprised are you now that he's encouraging i guess an anti-trump movement in the republican party, realize that that's why he lost support? >> i'm not surprised. i mean, any time you drop out you obviously are looking at a life's goal dream that has gone away. it was a very promising dream for scott walker.
9:04 pm
it was a reality at one point. he was leading in some of the early primary states. and so when you see donald trump come in to this and literally because of donald trump you lost your chance at the white house that you in many ways have been preparing for, certainly you can say for the last decade for scott walker, and not only that but see a lead wither away to become an asterisk that has got to be devastating to be as a part of, especially you as an individual. but let's also be fair here. scott walker had two terrible debates in a row. you can only blame so much of this on donald trump. i think scott walker really tried to overstretch in the first debate. in the second debate he just did not connect with people. and that happens a lot with presidential candidates. so unfortunately for him his campaign is over very early. much earlier than his supporters and donors and even i think he thought it would ever be. i was shocked how quick this ended for him. but the race is still got a lot
9:05 pm
of people in it and there's a lot of months ahead that they're going to be fighting with one another. >> the republican candidate who wins needs to have a more positive hopeful message than what he is saying is coming from donald trump, more negative and fearful. and despite scott walker's troubles, he did have major financial backing. >> yes. >> he is respected within the party. it's likely he will be working behind the scenes as the weeks go on to undo trump's support. do you think that will gain any traction? >> i'm not sure he will gain traction. i do think every time you see somebody like scott walker drop out it does give all the other candidates a better opportunity, a better chance to stand out. and to also gain in the polls. i mean, you look at after even this last we tdebate, you had dd trump that lost support. you had carl lie fiorina jump to second. you also had marco rubio who was really able to catapult after this last debate.
9:06 pm
so there are a lot of people now paying attention. i think every time we have a debate you're going to see probably someone drop out and someone's race get much more realistic of being able to conquer donald trump. i think you might see a unity among the dropouts who say, you know what, anyone but donald trump because he ruined our chance by jumping in this thing and many of them i don't think look at him as a serious and/or realistic candidate for the white house even though he's leading for this many months in a row. >> what does it mean then that donald trump still leads despite the many offensive things he's said. the reason i bring up becoming a citizen today is because you go through these ceremonies. you know, the presentation is all about how fantastic immigrants have been to the construction of the country, how the constitution must be upheld. the constitution makes it clear there's no religious test for people getting into office and all sorts of other things. what does it say about the republican base that the more inflammatory trump is the more
9:07 pm
support he gets, and let's not forget to become president you have to win the middle as well. isn't he running the risk of losing that? >> look, i think there's two ways to look at this or two things to notice. you have bernie sanders, a socialist, giving hillary clinton an unbelievable run for her money. and traditional politics you would say that is not possible. she is the establishment candidate. the same thing early on here. you know, donald trump is not the establishment. so i think what you're seeing is you're seeing people on both sides of the aisle, whether it be backing bernie sanders who hope openly says he's a socialist. they're sick and tired of politicians in washington saying they're going to do something and not doing it at all, not coming close to what their campaign promises are. so that's what i think a lot of this is about. i mean, the fact that donald trump has been able to be so blunt and bold and get away with it, i think the reason why is people are saying i would rather have a guy who says things
9:08 pm
politically incorrect than have the same old politician go to washington and not listen to any of us at all. that's why bernie sanders is doing well in primary states and jeb bush is doing well in primary states. >> but it makes it all that much more fascinating for us to watch. >> sure does. >> ben ferguson, our cnn commentator. thanks for your time joining us today. >> congratulations again. >> thanks, ben. appreciate it. in the meantime ben carson is clarifying his statement he would not support a muslim as u.s. president. in an interview with fox news carson said he could support a muslim president as long as they effectively renounce their faith. >> i mean, it's shocking to many on facebook carson said a muslim candidate would have to renounce sharia law. our chief political correspondent dana bash has more on this controversy. >> reporter: even in a campaign full of explosive comments, this
9:09 pm
one immediately stood out. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i absolutely would not agree with that. >> reporter: ben carson said that, he wouldn't want a muslim as president, in answer to a question about whether the islamic religion is consistent with the constitution. some of carson's competitors distance themselves. >> well, the constitution provides that there should be no religious test for public office. and i'm a constitutionalist. >> reporter: there are two muslim members of congress. both lashed out at carson. >> that is asinine. that's almost like saying a neurosurgeon could never become the president of the united states of america. >> reporter: the democratic front-runner for president was quick to chime in saying in a tweet, can a muslim be president of the united states of america? in a word, yes. now, let's move on. the conversation about muslims in america began at a donald trump town hall last week when he failed to correct a voter who falsely said president obama is a muslim even though he is a
9:10 pm
christian. >> we need this -- >> reporter: on sunday when asked what he thinks about the idea of a muslim president, trump stirred the pot, making this not so subtle suggestion about president obama. >> some people have said it already happened, frankly, but of course you wouldn't agree with that. >> reporter: this as trump's status as the republican front-runner is starting to slip. he's still on top but losing ground. down eight points in a new cnn/orc poll since early this month. and carly fiorina is on the rise in second place with 15% after a standout debate performance. when it comes to the name of the game, which is winning the republican nomination, it's hard to see these comments not having an effect. i was talking to a smart republican who said there are two kinds of gop voters. those who like to have their ideology validated, they're energized by politically incorrect remarks, and another kind, the vast majority who want to win the white house and are concerned about what is
9:11 pm
perceived to be an into rabbit remark or remarks that might preclude them from victory over democrats in 2016. dana bash, cnn, washington. joining me now to talk about it is dean obidela, muslim-american political comedian and host of his own radio show. thank you so much for talking with us. >> sure. thanks for having me. >> so let's start with your take on what both ben carson and donald trump are saying about muslims in america and why you think the gop isn't saying more about this level of islamophobia within their own party? >> i think they're telling slightly different tales with the same end result, which is stoking the flames of, you know, hate and fear of muslims. ben carson, very straightforward. ben carson, muslim can't be president because islam is incompatible with the constitution and american
9:12 pm
values. point blank. done. donald trump is much more subtle. he didn't stand up to an anthem with a bigot in new hampshire. and he also said things like, well, maybe obama is a muslim, that type of thing. and it wasn't swedes who attacked us on 9/11. essentially, it was muslims. state, donald trump will say, i love muslim, muslims are my best friend, that kind of stuff. so you have trump being a little bit more dog whistle or coded language. ben carson, straightforward. in reality they know it plays with the republican base. majority of republicans think president obama is a muslim and of republicans, they have a much more negative view of islam than the rest of america. so not just they think obama is a muslim, they don't like muslims. that's why they say he's a muslim nape hate obama and they don't like muslims either. they think it's going to play in their base. thankfully a few people in this race, lindsey graham, senator ted cruz in texas stood up and said it was wrong, chris
9:13 pm
christie said it was wrong what ben carson was saying. i think they're getting a little push and pull. we'll see who the gop nominates, if they want someone espousing intolerant views or reject the intolerant views and nominate someone who is more embracing of the diversity of this country. >> we will be watching the outcome. you mentioned the polls. how surprised are you that a recent cnn/orc poll showed 29% of americans think president obama is a muslim and more than 50% of trump supporters think the same thing. what does that tell you? >> it tells you that through years of demonization of muslims by certain republican and to be quite honest, fox news and other right wing media outlets have gotten hold and taken traction. of course though we can't dismiss the fact there is isis and al qaeda which are allowing, you know, the horrible acts of isis and al qaeda make their demonization resonate with people because they do see scary images of isis and al qaeda and
9:14 pm
al shabab. they're real, they're out there. these people on the right, certain, not all republicans, have ginned up the hate of muslim-americans to the point where it's really scary to them. and you know, the goal of the muslim community is to reach out to fellow americans, as many as we can, to make it clear what we're really about. reality is 25% of americans have a muslim friend. i tell people on my radio show i will be your muslim friend. people need to have that counter balance. >> yeah. interesting. of course we did see the first tweet from hillary clinton's aide, huma aberdeen who said this. you can be a proud american, a proud muslim, and proudly serve this great country, pride versus prejudice. now, is it about time that this issue got discussed at this level and what might the result be, do you think? >> first of all, i retweeted huma's tweet. great sentiment. it's important. she's been attacked a few years
9:15 pm
ago by elected officials like michele bachmann, congresswoman at the time. that's sort of the smear campaign we heard about any muslim serving in the american government, somehow we're not loyal to this country. i think we should have an honest discussion. i beg people to have an honest discussion. i've tried to had it through my columns for "the daily beast" and cnn opinion which i write about every week for, on my radio show. one that's not defensive, judgment free. where people can ask the questions about muslims and have a discussion and engage it and answer it in a way that makes sense. and we're honest. there are certain things in the koran that if you take out of context i can't defend them. i interviewed many islamic scholars that say portions of the koran, all portions have to be interpreted within their historical context. it's not like take page 27 of the koran and live your life by that. it was refeeled to the prophet
9:16 pm
mohammed over many, many years. i think part of our faith people understand a little bit. but unfortunately there's a void of information and it's been filled in by people who don't know much about it. sometimes they have an agenda to demonize us. it's a challenging time. >> let's keep the coversation going. >> i want to. >> dean obeidallah, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> it was a pleasure. china's president will be in the u.s. in a few hours from now for some meetings and an official state visit. coming up next, why his trip has stirred controversy and why his first stop is not the white house. we're back in a moment. americans. we're living longer than ever. as we age, certain nutrients... ...become especially important. from the makers of one a day fifty-plus. new one a day proactive sixty-five plus. with high potency vitamin b12... ...and more vitamin d.

in just a few hours from now pope francis will lead a mass before in cuba before heading to the u.s. >> and as cnn's patrick altman reports the pope has been warmly received during his four-day visit to the island nation. >> reporter: there's no way around it, cuba is giving pope francis the rock star treatment.
9:21 pm
what a cool pope, charnted young cubans in havana. certainly much cooler than the weather. even cuba's scorching september sun couldn't prevent huge crowds from gathering to greet pope francis. vatican officials says the havana mass through 200,000 people. something cuban officials perhaps wary of francis' star power have not confirmed. his is a rare message of inclusiveness in a country that we demands political conformity. and you cubans, even if you think differently, have different perspectives, he says, i want you to walk together so you don't lose hope. hope can be a luxury in cuba. a country that was for nearly three decades officially atheist and where many catholics faced discrimination. francis took a few subtle jabs at the mentality of the communist-run government.
9:22 pm
service is never ideological, he says. for we do not serve ideas, we serve people. observers say pope francis is looking not to bring the revolution down. just curb its repressive exists. >> francis as a young man, a young jesuit. he was deeply disappointed when cuba went communist. and i wonder whether francis is now like reminding raul about something about what the revolution was before it went marxist. >> reporter: pope francis met raul's father, the father of marxist in cuba, fidel castro. castro's children and wife who apparently didn't know that wearing white when meeting the pope is a right reserved for the queens of catholic countries. the pope leaves cuba on tuesday to head to washington, d.c. patrick altman, cnn, havana.
9:23 pm
>> pope francis has a full schedule planned during his six-day visit to the united states. hours from now he will fly to andrews air force base near washington. his visit there includes a speech before a joint session of the u.s. congress. >> and from thursday through sunday he'll visit new york city and philadelphia where he has numerous stops scheduled including a speech at the u.n. and a mass at madison square garden. >> the pope will complete his 2015 worldwide travels when he visits the african nations of kenya, uganda, and the central african republic in november. now to more news following for you. chinese president xi jinping is on his way to the u.s. and what's shaping up to be a controversial visit. >> before he dropped out of the presidential race scott walker said mr. xi's visit should be canceled over accusations that china has been sponsoring cyber espionage. >> a u.s. natural security
9:24 pm
adviser susan rice says state sponsored hacking jeopardizes u.s.-china relations but she says avoiding engaging with china, that is not an option. >> i know that some people question why we host china at all. that's a dangerous and short-sighted view. if we sought to punish china by canceling meetings or refusing to engage them, we would only be punishing ourselves. >> mr. x's first stop is seattle, washington, where he will meet with tech and aerospace executives. for more on this controversial visit let's go to simon who is in beijing. so, some analysts suggest this could very well be the most important trip the chinese president has taken since coming to power. others will say it will be a rocky road with issues like, as we mentioned, cyber security front and center. what are the u.s. and china
9:25 pm
expectations for this i have it and what are the issues here? >> well, rosemary, it is a bit of both as the pomp and ceremony we're going to see the importance that the chinese president is going to want to send back home, the important image of him being in the united states. and then there's what's going on underneath behind closed doors which is always the case in these state visits. and, of course, the controversial ones. there's a lot of issues for them to clear up. one of the main issues, well, they're looking at things like fugitives, just recently of course last week we saw a man that china wanted to speak to returned by the united states to china. that's on the agenda. they're also wanting to talk about the economy. we've seen that amazing slump in the last few weeks. some say it's a readjustment, it's reality and it's china transitioning into a democratic market-led world. others are reacting badly, as we saw with the markets. and top of the bill, rosemary,
9:26 pm
is cyber security. huge concern from the united states about chinese state-sponsored hacking. china, of course, says that it's not involved in that. it's itself a victim of hacking and cyber espionage. president obama has been ramping up the rhetoric about that and it's definitely going to be tough talking about cyber espionage is concerned. it's costing millions of dollars. there's a lot of intellectual property leaking out as well. having said that, you just heard susan rice's comments that this is not just something that is being seen as a controversial visit. it could be fruitful, too. the united states ambassador to china here in beijing is reminding everyone of that. take a listen. well, sorry. hoping to bring you some -- a clip of his speech yesterday. what he was saying was that, look, this is not just something
9:27 pm
to be seen as controversial. there are a lot of issues for the united states and china to sort through. and that is as china transitions to becoming one of the world's most dominant economies. it's going to start being and already is a very important player. so that means there is also a lot of opportunity which is why he's kicking off this trip to that visit to seattle. rosemary? >> we will watch this trip very closely. many thanks to you. shocking allegations are raised about the u.s. military's policy towards afghanistan's long history of boy play. the details still to come. we got the new tempur-flex and it's got the spring and bounce of a traditional mattress. you sink into it, but you can still move around. now that i have a tempur-flex, i can finally get a good night's sleep.

a pentagon spokesman today cnn today, we have never had a policy in place that directs any military member or any government personnel over seas to ignore human rights abuses. any sexual abuse is completely unacceptable and reprehensible. >> john joins us from washington, d.c. to talk about this. he's the asia advocacy director of human rights watch. john, thanks for your time. this is a disgustingly disturbing story to talk about but it is important. in fact, the topic of sexual abuse of boys in afghanistan is something your organization has looked into in depth before. tell us how wide spread it is in the country, this practice of bacha bazi, or boy play, as they call it. >> well, the abuse of afghan civilians generally by security forces, topic we've comped for years, rape of women, girls, boys, extortion, theft, torture, but we've always had our eye on this issue because it's come up again and again over the years.
9:36 pm
commanders, powerful gunman in afghanistan who have kidnapped boys and made them their sex slaves. it's an outrageous set of abuses. it's very difficult to pin down the exact scope of the abuse because of the incredible shame a lot of victims and families feel about what's happened. but this is -- >> why is this done? >> this is -- this isn't a cultural issue. it's frankly sexual abuse. we were talking about women being raped. nobody would talk about it in some part of afghanistan's culture. >> now, in this "new york times" report it claims that the u.s. military essentially needs these afghan commanders, so to challenge them on sexual abuse could undermine u.s. efforts. we have to make the point the pentagon denies this. but you've even claimed that after all of these years of not just your organization but others reporting this, you say the u.s. military still doesn't have a mechanism to deal with it. how can that be true? >> well, it's one thing to make
9:37 pm
this excuse in the fall of 2001, 2002 just as the u.s. and afghan forces are beginning partnership against taliban insurgents. but we are now over a decade later and that excuse is long past its sell date. the u.s. has been funneling billions of dollars into building up the afghan military. that should have and could have included building up their military justice system. and making it clear that abuse of this type is not going to be condoned by the united states government. it's one thing to let the abuse -- it's one thing to have abuse happen and say, okay, we can't deal with it for one reason or the other. it's toot thing to condone it. the u.s. government should have made it clear this is a type of behavior they do not condone, whether it's torture, sexual abuse, anything else. that they need the afghan authorities to take it seriously, which means prosecuting perp taters.

co-workers say mun was kidnapped by regular customers who befriended her, south korean spies who forced her into a car and drove away. cnn can't independently verify the claims which a south korean government official called completely groundless. >> does it ever cross your mind that she may have left wiingly? >> reporter: absolutely not, her father says. she was only 20 when she disappeared. she wasn't fully independent. mun's parents say she must have been abducted or deceived. a claim we often hear from the families of north koreans who disappear. tens of thousands of defectors have fled south since the late 1990s. many telling horror stories of persecution and abuse in the north. the north korean regime says they're criminals covering up their past or victims forced to lie about their homeland to survive. but those claims are at odds with the findings of the united nations which cites hundreds of defectors in a scathing report on human rights abuses in north

we still have the butte fire sitting at 74% contained. certainly improvement across this region as the weather pattern eased just a little bit. we do have moisture streaming in. tropical depression locked in over the portions of the sea of cortez and moisture over the next 24 to 48 hours. beneficial rainfall. some rains could be heavy out around the phoenix metro, points to the east, especially out towards the northern portion of arizona. already seeing one to two inches come down from tucson down in the past 24 hours. the radar showing the showers pushing the play there, san diego getting in on a few late showers this evening. the pattern again with 6.1 million people underneath flood watches right now, the vast majority of them in the inland empire and the southwestern corner of, say, the state of california. but the storm eventually spreads the rain all of the way across portions of the midwestern yuts and also a tropical feature i want to tell you about because we do have tropical storm malia a few hundred miles northwest of the hawaiian islands. not a major impact to land.

10:01 pm
now he was an early favorite in the crowded republican race for the u.s. presidency. he was twice elected governor of wisconsin, taking on powerful public unions and winning big. but after only a few months on the campaign trail and two lackluster debate performances scott walker is dropping out. >> i will suspend my campaign immediately. i encourage other republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner. >> now walker's support among republican voters has been steadily declining since july when he registered at 10%.
10:02 pm
he fell to 8% in august. 5% earlier this month. and now walker was polling at also than 1%. ben carson is clarifying his statement that he would not support a muslim as u.s. preside president. in an interview with fox news he said he could support a muslim as president as they renounced their faith. a muslim candidate would have to renounce sharia law. dana bash has more on the controversy. >> reporter: even in a campaign full of explosive comments, this one immediately stood out. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i absolutely would not agree with that. >> reporter: ben carson said that he wouldn't want a muslim as president, in answer to a question about whether the islamic religion is consistent with the constitution. some of carson's competitors distance themselves. >> well, the constitution provides that there should be no religious test for public
10:03 pm
office. i'm a constitutionalist. >> reporter: there are two muslim members of congress. both lashed out at carson. >> that is asinine. that's almost like saying a neurosurgeon could never become the president of united states of america. >> reporter: the democratic front-runner for president was quick to chime in, saying in a tweet, can a muslim be president of the united states of america? in a word, yes. now, let's move on. the conversation about muslims in america began at a donald trump town hall last week when he failed to correct a voter who falsely said president obama is a muslim even though he is a christian. >> we need this -- >> reporter: on sunday when asked what he thinks about the idea of a muslim president, trump stirred the pot making this not so subtle suggestion about president obama. >> some people have said it already happened, frankly, but of course you wouldn't agree with that. >> reporter: this as trump's status as the republican front-runner is starting to slip. he's still on top but losing ground. down eight points in a new
10:04 pm
cnn/orc poll since early this month. and carly fiorina is on the rise, in second place with 15% after a standout debate performance. when it comes the name of the game, winning the republican nomination, it's hard to see these comments not having an affect. i was talking to a smart republican who said there are two kinds of gop voters. those who like to have their ideology validated, they're energized by politically incorrect remarks. and another kind, the vast majority who want to win the white house and are concerned about what is perceived to be an intolerant remark or remarks, that might preclude them from victory over democrats in 2016. dana bash, cnn, washington. now, a number of muslim leaders are calling on the carson to just drop out of the presidential race. cnn spoke with the executive director of the council on american-islamic relations. >> he clearly trashed the united
10:05 pm
states constitution by saying that an american muslim cannot be president of the united states. that is a religious test. and, therefore, he is profiting himself unfit or not ready to lead the united states because he's not going to uphold the constitution. >> currently carson is in third place with 14% support in the latest cnn/orc poll of republican voters. anticipation is now building as pope francis begins his u.s. tour in just a few hours. president obama will be there to greet the pope when he arrives near washington. the white house is trying hard to take politics out of the pope's visit but that may be impossible as cnn's jim acosta shows us. >> reporter: when pope francis arrives in washington for his first visit to the u.s., president obama will be welcoming a powerful political partner, but with the next
10:06 pm
presidential election heating up the white house is rejektding the notion the pope's trip is all about politics. >> there is no plan or strategy that's been put in place to try to stage an event that will advance anybody's political agenda. >> reporter: that's a tough claim to make considering the pope's positions. as the white house led the charge for same-sex marriage, pope francis has softened his own stance on gay priests. >> translator: if a person is gay and seeks god and has good will, whom am i to judge him? ? >> reporter: on climate change the pope says it's a global problem with gave implications. the earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth and he slammed trickle down economics saying, this opinion which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power. then there's the president's policy on cuba. a change the pope helped broker in secret. >> i want to thank his holiness
10:07 pm
pope francis. >> reporter: conservatives have dubbed it the obama fication of pope francis and gop presidential candidates have had enough. >> i just think the pope was wrong. the fact is that his infallibility is on religious matters. not on political ones. >> reporter: it's not the first time a pope and u.s. president have joined forces. ronald reagan and pope john paul ii were close allies in the fight against communism during the cold war. >> when john paul ii went against polish communism and aligned himself with the solidarity movement i didn't hear a lot of uproar. he was lauded for that kind of advancement. and so i just think it's interesting that this pope, when he kind of wades into the waters gets criticized to stay out of politics. >> reporter: mike huckabee dubbed that a new low for an administration that will go down as the most anti-christian in american history. the white house insists the pope
10:08 pm
deserves a diverse audience. >> there is no theological test that was administered prior to giving out tickets to being on the south lawn wednesday morning. >> reporter: even with these two leaders offen the same page on so many issues white house officials can see there could be moments when the pope publicly disagrees with the president, for example, on the subject of abortion. they have some clue on what the pope plans to say this week but they're also bracing for plenty of surprises. jim acosta, cnn, the white house. now, before heading to the united states, pope francis will lead a mass in cuba. cnn's patrick altman reports, the pope has been warmly received during his four-day visit to the island nation.
10:09 pm
>> reporter: there's no way around it, cuba is giving pope francis the rock star treatment. what a cool pope, charmed young cubans in havana. certainly much cooler than the weather. even cuba's scorching september sun couldn't prevent huge crowds from gathering to greet pope francis. vatican officials says the havana mass through 200,000 people. something cuban officials perhaps wary of francis' star power have not confirmed. his was a rare message of inclusiveness in a country that we demands political conformity. and, you cubans, even if you think differently, have different perspectives, he says, i want you to walk together so you don't lose hope. hope can be a luxury in cuba. a country that was for nearly three decades officially atheist and where many catholics face religious discrimination. francis took a few subtle jabs at the socialism or the death mentality of the communist-run government. service is never ideological, he says. for we do not serve ideas, we serve people. observers say pope francis is looking not to bring the
10:10 pm
revolution down. just curb its repressive exists. >> francis as a young man, a young jesuit. he was deeply impacted by the revolution, the whole generation was. he was deeply disappointed when cuba went communist. and i wonder whether francis is now like reminding raul about something about what the revolution was before it went marxist. >> reporter: pope francis met raul castro's brother, the father of marksism in cuba, fidel castro. he mitt him at his home near havana. he showed rare images of castro's children and wife who apparently didn't know that wearing white when meeting the pope is a right reserved for the queens of catholic countries. the pope leaves cuba on tuesday to head to washington, d.c. patrick altman, cnn, havana. >> now to another story we're traing for you. eu interior ministers are meeting later today to discuss a
10:11 pm
possible deal of resetting thousands of refugees. the number of people flocking to the region is stagger pentagon croatia said almost 30,000 migrants crossed into that country so far. a small portion of the almost half million estimated to have entered europe this year. hungary's parliament gave military permission on monday to use nonlethal force to control the migrants who are trying to cross to austria. senior international correspondent ben wedeman is on the hungarian/austrian border. >> reporter: basically throughout the day trains come and deposit them just about four kilometers here on the hungarian side. they walk and then they're met by hungarian aide workers and others who give them food before they actually enter austria. usually they stay here for a few hours. sometimes overnight. they're bused to points further inside the country. now, here, for instance, the us a industryian army soldiers are just trying to keep the place
10:12 pm
organized. herding the refugees and migrants around until they're ready to leave. but it's really a steady flow of people. we understand since over the weekend more than 20,000 refugees and migrants have reached hungary. and we were on another border crossing to the east -- rather, the west of here and we saw that preparations were being made on the hungarian side as well as the usus a industaustrian side to take i. they are continuing a stream of people to enter first austria of course but many of the refugees we've spoken to say their final goal is actually germany. >> ben wedeman there. still to come here on "cnn newsroom," busted big time. a popular carmaker accused of rigging tests to show lower emissions. we're going to show you how this worked, coming up. plus, the debate around powerful religious leaders are

listen up. the chief of volkswagen in the u.s. says the company, quote, totally screwed up. the u.s. environmental protection agency accuses the automaker of cheating to pass clean air standards. the "wall street journal" and others report volkswagen could face a criminal probe because of this. officials say the company programmed some diesel fueled cars to report lower emissions when tested. the software was installed in roughly half a billion cars on u.s. roads and that includes its luxury brand audi. ceo martin has apologized saying volkswagen has broken the trust of the public. may face up to $18 billion in fines. the scandal has hit the company's stock hard as well. richard quest explains how bad it is and how the cheating worked. >> if you want to see the effect, i'm going to start with the most important effect that we've seen. look at the way the share price over the last five days,
10:18 pm
tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, monday. right the way down. if you look and you see exactly how far, down 17% for the close. stock like voegs wvoeks rag gwe. when you look at the reason why and start to condition the number of models that we are talking about, half a million cars, jettas, beetles, golfs, audi, anything from 2009 to 2015, what would happen is that when the cars were being tested, the engine computer recognized that the wheels wr -- the steering wheel wasn't moving and the way the wheels were actually turns and it knew that this was the characteristic, it knew it was the characteristic of a test. so it enabled the switch and, therefore, the emissions came down. and then once the car was back
10:19 pm
on the road, the computer recognized the wheels were turning, they were going in different ways, speed was changing and the switch flipped again and, of course, suddenly everything went off and the greatly the emissions were much greater because of enter normal driving. absolutely extraordinary how this took place. >> it really is. richard quest there. this issue isn't just about fuel economy and stock prices. some of the cars emitted 40 times legal levels and can trigger asthma and other respiratory problems. another story, questions about moscow's intentions in syria that deepening with the rapid build-up of combat equipment there. two u.s. officials say russia started flying unmanned drones over syria and apparent surveillance operation. they couldn't confirm though whether those drones were armed. a u.s. official says russia now has 25 fighter and attack aircraft in place in addition to

10:21 pm
islamic group that's captured vast suedes of territory. but it's an array of others like fighters of the army of islam that are challenging the syrian government strongholds. and now they're turning their sights on russia. >> if it wants to protect assad it has to fight islamists and mainstream rebels. they are aligned with actors like turkey and the gulf states. others are the coastal divisions are part of the free syrian army that the united states has trained and armed an equipped over the years. >> reporter: russia's military build-up in syria has been rapid. latest satellite images show advanced aircraft, tanks and missile systems already on the ground. syrian television has offered glimpses of other modern russian hardware, too. apparently engaged on the front lines. it's the arrival of this hardware that is so alarmed
10:22 pm
countries like israel whose prime minister has been in moscow seeking assurances about russian intentions. but what they may be, how far russia is prepared to go to back its syrian government ally, remains unclear. speaking in moscow alongside benjamin netanyahu all vladimir putin would give away is few words. all russian actions in the middle east have been and will be responsible, he said. but with so many interests in play, including the u.s. military and their desire for assad to be removed, events on the ground could yet spin out of control. already moscow says its embassy in damascus has been shelled. russia's syrian gambit putting it firmly in the firing line. matthew chance, cnn, moscow. the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog says it's conducted the first ever inspection of iran's military site.
10:23 pm
the international atomic energy agency says iranian technicians took samples in the iaea monitored the process. the agency will look at them in austria. the iaea is looking into iran's past nuclear activity which is separate from terms agreed to in july's nuclear deal. many of iran's religious leaders are skeptical over that deal made with six powers inincluding the u.s. frederik pleitgen reports on the mixed views of iran. >> reporter: the shrine in the city is one of the most important holy sites in iran. it's made the city the center for shiite islamic studies. now iran's powerful clergy is engulfed in a debate on how to move forward in relations with the west, and america in particular. abbas is the head of islamic and cultural studies at the university here. he's excited about the current diplomatic momentum.
10:24 pm
>> we like to use diplomacy. diplomacy is better than war. language of diplomacy, language of negotiations is better. even if there is a kind of fear about that they should talk about it and remove it. >> reporter: moderates around president assad rouhani are also talking about a steady improvement in u.s./iranian relations but there are harsh critics of the current. with the famous shrine and many religious schools, calm is the hub for religious conservatives here in iran. and many of them fear that islam could lose influence if there's more cooperation with the west, especially with the united states. iran's supreme leader, ayatollah ali has accused the u.s. of trying to infiltrate iran culturally and politically and ordered iranians to be vigilant. at the ama'am al hadi instut they translate historic
10:25 pm
religious text and provide scholarly commentary. the institute's head is close to the supreme leader and also has little trust for the u.s. >> translator: mr. obama keeps saying all options are on the table, he says, but the iranians are not scared at all. this is not even worth the paper it's written on. >> reporter: the ayatollah says any improvement in relations will be a long process. if the west wants fair relations, not like a wolf and a sheep, then we can think about it, he says. but the americans have to prove themselves first. while polls show the whatter jo i the of iranians favor better ties with the west, large parts of powerful religious leadership remain skeptical, arguing almost 40 years of confrontation won't be wiped away by an agreement on

than 1% before dropping out. how surprised are you now that he's encouraging i guess an anti-trump movement in the republican party, realizing that that's why he lost support? >> i'm not surprised. i mean, any time you drop out you obviously are looking at a life's goal dream that has gone away. it was a very promising dream for scott walker. it was a reality at one point. he was leading in some of the early primary states. and so when you see donald trump come in to this and literally, because of donald trump you lost your chance at the white house that you in many ways have been preparing for, certainly you can say for the last decade for scott walker, and not only that, but see a lead wither away to becoming an asterisk that has got to be devastating to be as a part of, especially you as an individual. but let's also be fair here. scott walker had two terrible debates in a row. you can only blame so much of this on donald trump. i think scott walker really
10:33 pm
tried to overstretch in the first debate. in the second debate he just did not connect with people. and that happens a lot with presidential candidates. so unfortunately for him his campaign is over very early. much earlier than his supporters and donors and even i think he thought it would ever be. i was shocked how quick this ended for him. but the race has still got a lot of people in it and there's a lot of months ahead that they're going to be fighting with one another. >> but he and other candidates have made the point that the republican candidate who wins needs to have a more positive hopeful message than what he is saying is cominfrom donald trump, more negative and fearful. and despite scott walker's troubles, he did have major financial backing. >> yes. >> he is respected within the party. it's likely he will be working behind the scenes as the weeks go on to undo trump's support. do you think that will gain any traction? >> i'm not sure he will gain traction. i do think every time you see somebody like scott walker drop out it does give all the other candidates a better opportunity, a better chance to stand out.
10:34 pm
and to also gain in the polls. i mean, you look at after even this last debate, you had donald trump that lost support. you had carly fiorina jump to second place. you also had marco rubio who was really able to catapult after this last debate. so there are a lot of people now paying attention. i think every time we have a debate you're going to see probably someone drop out and someone's race get much more realistic of being able to conquer donald trump. i think you might see a unity among the dropouts who say, you know what, anyone but donald trump because he ruined our chance by jumping in this thing. and many of them i don't think look at him as a serious and/or realistic candidate for the white house even though he's leading for this many months in a row. >> what does it mean then that donald trump still leads despite the many offensive things he's said? the reason i bring up becoming a citizen today is because you go through these ceremonies. you know, the presentation is
10:35 pm
all about how fantastic immigrants have been to the construction of the country, how the constitution must be upheld. the constitution makes it clear there's no religious test for people getting into office and all sorts of other things. what does it say about the republican base that the more inflammatory trump is, the more support he gets, and let's not forget to become president you have to win the middle as well. isn't he running the risk of losing that? >> look, i think there's two ways to look at this or two things to notice. you have bernie sanders, a socialist, giving hillary clinton an unbelievable run for her money. in traditional politics you would say that is not possible. she is the establishment candidate. the same thing early on here. you know, donald trump is not the establishment. so i think what you're seeing is you're seeing people on both sides of the aisle, whether it be backing bernie sanders who openly says he's a socialist. or backing donald trump or carly fiorina or ben carson, all not politicians. they're sick and tired of politicians in washington saying
10:36 pm
they're going to do something and not doing it at all, not coming close to what their campaign promises are. >> ben carson there -- excuse me, ben ferguson speaking to me earlier. for more on walker's exit from the u.s. presidential race and reaction to ben carson's controversial comments on muslims visit any time, just head to cnn.com/politics. now to a murder case gaining national attention in the u.s. 2-year-old bella bond also known as baby doe was found dead in the boston harbor in massachusetts in june. now her mother and mom's boyfriend are facing charges in the girl's death. cnn's steve nannis reports. >> reporter: emotions were ran high in a courtroom. [ bleep ]. >> before bella was identified she was referred to as baby doe.
10:37 pm
after her remains were found wrapped in a black trash bag on the shorecor think was charged murder and denied bail. she's being held on a million dollar bail. both pleaded not guilty. she asked mr. mcor think what he had done. he did not tell her. he said she was a demon anyway and it was her time to die. >> reporter: prosecutors allege mcor think killed the 2-year-old in her own home and bella's mother admitted to keeping her daughter's death a secret. >> he put the plastic bag into a duffel bag which she put in the trunk of his car and drove to an area in the south boston seaport. she reports that he took weights, put them in the bag and then dumped her body in the
10:38 pm
water. >> mccarthy's attorney insists his client is innocent. >> he is shocked and saddened by the death of bella bond but he did not kill her. >> reporter: but the lawyer for the child's mother disagrees. >> she wants to see mr. mcccarty pay for what he did. up next, in a live report, details on his first stop and why some people don't want him to visit the white house. stay with cnn. technology empowers us to achieve more.

10:44 pm
journal" where president xi himself is responded, saying that china does not back or engage in theft of commercial secrets in any form and doesn't encourage it, either. what he's saying is he's not saying it's not going on. he's saying, errol, that it's not state sponsored. and of course, there are a lot of coupleries that are looking at cyber espionage as well and guilty of it, other than that there's the activity in the south china sea. there's the slump in the economy. a huge problem we've seen major reactions reverberating around the world. and returning fugitives that china wants returned from the u.s. even though there isn't an agreement. there are a lot of issues to talk through and there are a lot of opportunities as well. and that is also what a lot of people want to keep on the agenda. this is what max backer, the u.s. ambassador to china had to say about that. >> first is the opportunity to
10:45 pm
more fully expand our cooperative engagement with china. each passing year there are more and more area, environment, economic, political, it's a great opportunity. the second opportunity is for a more frank discussion between our two countries. it's quite clear to me that we are entering into a new phase in the relationship. >> reporter: so there are -- while there are a lot of controversial issues, errol, to talk over, there are also a lot of opportunities, a lot of trade. and that is why president xi is starting his tour in seattle. he wants to talk about tech, the internet, the opportunities for collaboration between the u.s. and china. errol. optimistic view, many re - contentious issues but the two sides recently agreed on

watched this emotional speech during the show but it itself has been shared countless times on social media. how would you like to trade hats with pope francis? believe it or not this is a tradition. cnn's jeanne moos reports on who's done it and how. >> reporter: we tend to notice the pope's skull cap only when it flies off. it often appears ready for liftoff. usually when he's getting off a plane, but pope francis never loses face when a holy gust gets him. he's so humble he let's kids play with the cap. but did you know you can trade caps with the pope? >> and i thought i'm going to be on the plane with the pope. wouldn't it be cool if i swapped it with him. >> reporter: before philadelphia "enquirer" religion reporter david o'reilly boarded the pope's plane for cuba he went to the pope's taylor shop and bout
10:55 pm
a new zuccheto for 20 bucks. he handed him a but cap which the pope tried on for size and said -- >> a little big. >> reporter: and with the essence of pope upon it, francis gave the cap back to the reporter. for the pope, this is an old hat. he does it all the time. fans wave a cap at him. the popemobile stops. if the cap fits, he keeps it and gives away the old one, to these two boston college students, for instance. and if it doesn't fit, francis at least puts it on his head so that when he returns it it's been worn by a pope. papal cap swappers, it's a thrill. >> i'm still shaking. it's been like ten minutes. >> reporter: for others the thrill is making a buck on ebay where caps said to have been worn by the pope are for sale for more than $900. but david o'reilly isn't selling his. >> it's in a zip-lock bag in my

11:01 pm
and we start with a shakeup in the u.s. presidential race. wisconsin governor scott walker is dropping auto, and he is encouraging other republicans to do the same. walker has been hurt in the polls by donald trump's surging popularity, and a couple of lackluster debate performances. his announcement monday was brief. he said voters should focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative, alternative to the current pront runner. reason. >> rond reagan was good for america was he was an optimist. sadly, the debate taking place in the republican party today is not focussed on that optimistic view of america. instead, it has drifted into personal attacks. in the end, i believe that the voters want to be for something and not against someone. instead of talking about how bad things are, we want to hear how
11:02 pm
we can make them better, for everyone. we need to get back to the basics of our party. >> and jeb bush was campaigning in iowa monday when he got word of walker's announcement. >> there have been in the last couple of weeks, some surprises in this campaign. no i'm not talking about donald trump, for a change. in fact, i probably won't talk about him tonight, if you don't mind. i'm talking about two principle centered eskeffective governorso are no longer running. rick perry and scott walker are no longer running for president. scott will serve in wisconsin. they are great public servants. >> and walker was considered a top tier candidate just a few
11:03 pm
months but his support fell steadily over the past few months. john king has more on that. >> he had bad debate answers. there are a number of reasons. he peaked back in march polling 15%. this is the moment where he was a contender, not could have been. he was a contender for a bit, but this is what killed him. after the cnn debate, he went to barely registering in her poll. this is his peek in march. when he was considered the alternative to jeb bush, he was leading in iowa. nationally, 20% among men. 1% now. 12% among women, doesn't register anymore. conservatives thought he was his guy, he was a conservative hero, doesn't register anymore. literally fell through the
11:04 pm
floor. in part because of trump and in part because of bad performance. down to 24 %. carly fiorina, barely registering beforehand, up to 15% now. dr. carson down a bit. marco rubio up a bit. jeb bush, a static line. it's interesting to watch. by did trump go down? he's getting tested now. he dropped among the tea party down to 29%. small declines among evangelicals and republican men. we'll see if we can recover. the beneficiary, carly fiorina, taking support from trump and carson. 3% to 14% among republican men. that's a big jump. she went from nowhere to somewhere. her challenge is to capitalize. mr. trump's challenge is to deal with his first test of adversi y
11:05 pm
adversity. >> ben carson is clarify his statement that he would not support a muslim as u.s. president. he said he could support a u.s. muslim president as long as they effectively renounce their face. on facebook, they said they could have to renounce shia law. we have more on the controversy. >> reporter: even in a campaign full of explosive comments, this one immediately stood out. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i would not agree with that. >> reporter: ben carson said that he wouldn't want a muslim in president in answer to a question about whether the islamic condition is consistent with the constitution. some of carson's competitors distanced themselves. >> well, the constitution provides that there should be no religious test for it.
11:06 pm
>> that is almost like saying that a neurosurgeon could never become the president of the united states of america. >> reporter: the democratic front runner was quick to chime in saying can a muslim be president of the united states of america? in a word, yes. let's move on. the conversation about muslims in america began had a donald trump town hall who called president obama a muslim. even though he is a christian. trump stirred the pot, making this not so subtle suggestion about obama. >> some people have said it already happened, but you wouldn't agree with that. >> reporter: this as trump's status as the front runner is starting to slip. down 8 points in a new cnnorc poll since early this month, and carly fiorina is on the rise in
11:07 pm
second place with 15% after a standout debate performance. when it comes to the name of the game which is winning the republican nomination, it's hard to see these comments not having an effect. i was talking to a smart republican who said there are two kinds of gop voter where eve who are energized by politically incorrect comments, and then those who want to win the white house. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> joining me now to talk about it is dean opidalla. he is a host of a radio show. thank you for talking with us. >> sure. thanks for having me. >> let's start with your take on what both ben carson and donald trump are saying about muslims
11:08 pm
in america and why you think the gop isn't saying more about this level of islam phobia within their own party? >> well, i think they're actually telling slightly different tales with the same end result which is stoking the flames of hate and fear of muslims. but in different ways. ben carson, straightforward. muslim can't be president was islam is incompatible with american values and the constitution. donald trump is much more subtle. he didn't stand up to a big got on thursday, and he's also settlely said things like well, maybe obama is a mislut muslimst the same time he'll say i love muslims. ben carson, straightforward. i think in reality, they know it plays to the republican base.
11:09 pm
poll after poll has shown that majority of republicans think president obama is a muslim, and they have a more negative view of islam than the rest of the country. they don't like muslims. and they think it's going to play in their base. thankfully, a few people in this race, lindsey graham, senator ted cruz said it was wrong. chris christie said it was wrong, what ben carson was saying. i think they're getting a little push and pull and we'll see who the gop nominates. if they want someone espousing entr intolerant views. >> we'll be watching the outcome. you mentioned the polls. how surprised are you that a recent cnn poll showed 29% of americans think president obama is a muslim, and more than 50% of trump supporters think the same thing. what does that tell you? >> it tells you that through
11:10 pm
years of demonization of muslims by certain republicans, and to be quite honest, fox news and other right wing media outlets has taken traction. but there is isis and al qaeda which are allowing the horrible acts of isis and al qaeda, make their demonization resonate with people, because they do see scary images of isis and al shabaab. they're out there. the people on the right, certain, not all republicans, have taken up the hate of muslim americans whoto the point where it's scary for them. my goal is to reach out to make it clear what we're really about. only 25% of americans have a muslim friend. i will be your muslim friend. people need to have that counter balance. >> interesting. and, of course, we did see the
11:11 pm
first tweet from hillary clinton's aid where she said this. i want to read it out. you can be a proud american, a proud muslim, and proudly serve this great country. pride versus prejudice. now, is it about time that this issue got discussed at this level and what might the result be, do you think? >> first of all, i retweeted that tweet. that was great sentiment and important. she's been attacked a few years ago by elected officials, other republicans alleging she's in the muslim brotherhood. that's sort of a smear campaign. we've heard that we're part of a nefarious plan to overtake the nation. i think we should have an honest discussion. >> let's keep the conversation going. >> i want to. >> dean, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. >> it was a pleasure. >> and a new poll of democratic
11:12 pm
voters show hillary clinton appears to be winning back some of her supporters from bernie sanders. >> reporter: today in louisiana and arkansas, hillary clinton hit the campaign trail. a poll shows she's opening her lead in the democratic field. >> we are not going to let our country be taken backwards by people who are out of touch and out of date. >> reporter: clinton stands at 42 % nationally with bernie sanders at 24 %, and biden at 22%. it's good news for clinton. a 10-point drop last month alone. sanders have sapped away support, clinton told cbs, she does not plan to run a negative campaign against sanders. >> i know bernie. i respect his enthusiastic
11:13 pm
advocacy of his ideas. >> reporter: but will biden run? it will put her 30 points ahead of sanders. in an interview with the catholic magazine, america, biden who just lost his son to brain cancer three months ago made clear he is not ready to make a decision. >> it's not quite there yet, and maybe not on time to make it feasible to be able to run and succeed, because there are certain windows that will close, but if that's it, that's it. >> reporter: one person close to biden long thought to be resistant to a run, his wife, jill. >> you'll have to talk to my wife about that. i've got to talk to my wife about that. >> reporter: but after reports she is not supportive of a run, a spokesman for the second lady issued this statement. of course dr. biden would be on board if her husband decides to run for president, but they
11:14 pm
haven't made that decision yet. a possible biden candidacy comes has hillary clinton is trying to appear more spontaneous. >> let me grab my pen. >> reporter: but asked on cbs for three words that describe the real hillary clinton, she struggled. >> i am a real person with all the pluses and minuses that go along with being that. >> reporter: on her swing through the south, she talked about some of the changes she would like to make to obama care. this coming ahead of a more specific policy rollout in iowa on tuesday. cnn, little rock. >> anticipation is building in the u.s. with pope francis set to arrive in washington later today. he will be greeted by president obama and the first lady among
11:15 pm
others. the white house is going to great lengths to take politics out of the pope's visit, but that may be nearly impossible. jim acosta reports. >> reporter: when pope francis arrives in washington for his first visit to the u.s., president obama will be welcoming a powerful political partner, but with the next election heating up, the white house is rejecting the notion the pope's trip is all about politics. >> there is no plan put in place to try to stage an event that will advance anybody's political agenda. >>. >> reporter: that's a tough claim to make. the white house led the chargem >> translator: if a person is gave and seeks god and has good will, who am i to judge him.
11:16 pm
>> reporter: he says the earth is starting to look more like an immense pile of filth, and he slammed trickle down economics. then there's the president's policy on cuba, a change the pope helped broker in secret. >> i want to thank pope francis. >> reporter: conservatives have dubbed it the obamaification of pope francis. >> the pope was wrong. his infallibility is on religious matters, and political ones. >> reporter: it's not the first time a president and the pope have joined forces. >> when john paul the second went against polish communism and aligned himself with the solidarity movement, he was lauded for that kind of advancement. and so i just think it's
11:17 pm
interesting that this pope, when he kind of went to the waters, got criticized. >> reporter: some say the white house is inviting pro-choice to the white house. the white house says the pope deserves a diverse audience. >> even with the two leaders on same page on so many issues, white house officials say there could be moments when the pope disagrees with the president, for example on the subject of abortion. the president says they have some clue about what the pope plans to talk about but they're bracing for plenty of surprises. >> coming up on cnn news room, the mysterious disappearance of a north korean woman has many
11:18 pm

protesters in the central brazilian town are demanding better transportation services and they displayed their frustrations dramatically by destroying some of the very buses they need during protests on monday. the city's metro bus company reported at least six bugss were completely burned out and another nine destroyed during the demonstrations. damages estimated at $2 million. a u.n. commission says it has found evidence of numerous crimes against humanity in north korea. the head of that commission is urging the international community to investigate properly and prosecutor, if necessary. >> crimes against humanity have been found, and it is not open to the world community to turn away. it is the duty of the world community when there have been findings that there is a reasonable case for crimes against humanity.
11:23 pm
it is the only fact of the international community to respond and have those matters properly investigated and if found to warrant prosecution, brought before an appropriate court or tribunal. >> and our will ripley is in north korea and joins us now. what are the specific crimes against humanity that the u.n. is referring to in the report? >> reporter: well, the united nations has long accused north korea of running brutal prison camps, a claim they deny, denying the existence of political prison camps. there have been hundreds of defectors who have left claiming forced starvation and abuse and torture. north korea disputes the claims saying that these are criminals who are trying to cover up their
11:24 pm
own criminal past. the u.n. also accusing north korea, and this was discussed by the united nations today, of international kidnappings, of taking people from other countries and forcing them to come here, another claim that north korea while acknowledging some kidnappings, for the most part, has had no comments about these cases, some of which date back to the cold war. in fact, now, the north korean government is giving us their own perspective, saying their own citizens are become victims. this room could belong to any young girl, full of stuffed animals, figurines. she loved snow white, obviously. memories kept the old fashion way in north korea. kids still write letters home here. like this one from a young p
11:25 pm
waitress at this state-owned restaurant. telling her parents she was just weeks from coming home. her last letter before she disappeared. i wouldn't believe it, her mother says, i wouldn't believe it when i first got the news, because i strongly trusted and still trust her. only the most loyal north koreans are selected to work abroad at state-owned businesses, often for three or four years without coming home. two workers say moon was kidnapped by regular customers who befriended her. south korean spies who forced her into a car and drove away. cnn can't independently verify the claims, which a south korean official called completely groundless. does it ever kros your mind that she may have left willingly? absolutely not her father says. she was only 20 when she disappeared. she wasn't fully independent. her parents say she must have
11:26 pm
been abducted or deceived. a claim we often hear from the families of north koreans who disappear. tens of thousands of defectors have fled south since the late 1990s, many telling horror stories of persecution and abuse in the north. the north korean regime says they're criminals covering up their past, or victims forced to lie about their homeland to survive. but those claims are at odds with the findings of the united nations which cites hundreds of defectors in a report on human rights abuses in north korea. >> how often do your come to your daughter's room? every day i come home from work and go to her room to see if anything has changed. if she's come home. moon's parents haven't heard from her in four years. they still keep her university uniforms pressed and ready, just in case. i strongly believed you were
11:27 pm
deceived into going down there. i trust you. your parents will be here waiting for you until the end of our lives. >> reporter: the grief for those parents, very authentic, rosemary. you can see the pain in their eyes, and there are thousands of families that are divided as a result of the divided korean peninsula, the knnorth and the south still enemies. but what is interesting about this particular case is that this young woman comes from a family that's considered relatively well to do. they live in a fairly large flat. her father is a police officer. her mother is an artist. she's not running away from allegations of abuse and torture that we hear about from so many other defectors. >> so many questions to be answered there. many thanks, will. and this just in to cnn, the israeli army says a palestinian was shot and wounded after

11:33 pm
respond to the crisis, and some are rejecting calls for migrant quo toes. government leaders will meet on wednesday. >> the chinese president is on his way to the united states in what is shaping up to be a controversial state visit. many critics have said the white house should not host the president. amid accusations china sponsored cyber espionage. he said his government does not hack. this is his first interview with media outside of china since this summer's stock collapse. the leader also said he wants to work with washington to address world challenges. and for more on this controversial visit, let's go to our simon, who is in beijing. china's president covered a number of issues as we said, in that wall street journal interview. what stood out, and what are the
11:34 pm
main issues the chinese president will face on this u.s. trip? >> reporter: there are a lot of issues and a lot of talking to be done, rosemary, not least, of course, cyber security. including the fact that the u.s. has been ramping up the rhetoric, saying that china really needs to address this, and in this article you mentioned, "the wall street journal," he really does address a rlot of issues head on, including the economy, and in particular, cyber security. and what he says is the chinese government doesn't engage in these attacks on intellectual property. he's saying it's not state-sponsored, but it is going on. the flip side, the united states also engages in cyber espionage, but the united states is focussed on china's side of that, and the issue is that
11:35 pm
china conducts cyber espionage to help its own economic growth. the united states says it does it purely for national security as we saw with the edward snowden issue. that really is top of the bill, but china really does want also to focus on the other issues that it wants to talk about, trade and investment. it wants certain fugitives that it wants to be returned to china from the united states as well whereby discussed. and the fact you mentioned that the chinese president says they want to work together on world issues is really china saying we're catching up with you to the united states. rosemary. >> indeed, and how important and significant is this trip to seattle by the leader? >> reporter: this was a really interesting addition to his
11:36 pm
visit, rosemary. he's kicking it up with seattle. that cig any fies how important china sees tech and collaboration and working together with u.s. companies. that's why they're focusing on that. there are various round tables between 15 ceos from the united states, 15 from china. there is a lot of collaboration going on, just last week dell and local software maker king soft have signed a collaboration deal. and this is what china really wants. china wants to bring u.s. companies into work with chinese companies, not least because it's beneficial to u.s. companies to access the millions of people in china that can be their customers but also to teach chinese companies about software development and innovation and in turn, china can then tap into the u.s. market. just one point to add to that around the cyber security issue.
11:37 pm
i met with the ceo yesterday. he said well, look. the more china gets access to u.s. companies and starts innovating, it will want to, itself, protect its intellectual property, and that is a way to bring china to the regulation table. >> a lot of people watching this closely, saying some of them, that this is not going to be smooth sailing for china's president. we'll be watching it closely too. reporting live from beijing. many thanks. >> syria's regime is reportedly escalating the number of air strikes throughout the country. they say the government has carried out more than 38,000 erair strikes since october of last year. helicopters dropped 20,000 barrel bombs. 2,000 women and children were killed. the air strikes also killed 3200 fighters from the al nusra

11:44 pm
mother. the couple exposed by a long-time friend of michael mccarthy. he lived with them earlier this year. mccarthy told him bella had been taken away by the department of children and families. but suddenly, last week, he heard a different story when he asked the girl's mother about getting her back. >> she responded, michael mccarthy killed her, and i'm an accessory after the fact because i helped him get rid of her body. >> reporter: stunned, he called his sister, who created this computer image to help identify the girl. he also recognized the zebra blanket found in the body. both he and his sister contacted authorities, giving them the break they needed. it all happened in late may ben prosecutors say she was unwilling to go to her bed in her apartment. that's when prosecutors say michael mccarthy went to try and calm her down in the back bedroom.
11:45 pm
when things got quite, the mother went to check on them. that's when bond witnessed mccarthy striking the child in the abdomen. she says when bella stopped breathing, mccarthy said it was her time to die. he believed bella was possessed by demons. michelle bond told investigators that mccarthy threatened to kill her if she told anyone and that he put her daughter's body in a garbage bag, then inside the refrigerator. mccarthy sedated bond for days by injecting heroin into her neck. prosecutors say days later she helped him take the bag, put weights inside, and dump it in boston harbor. it was discovered by a woman on june 25th. when investigators came, they found child's clothing but no

11:47 pm
was dead. >> she told me all the details about what happened to our daughter. >> how hard was that to hear? >> it was tremendously hard. it was probably one of the hardest things i ever had to sit through in my life and listen so. it is a horrifying and heart-breaking story there. firefighters in northern california had a brush fire of five acheres on their hands monday. the fast-moving fire was in martinez california at the edge of a regional park. at one point construction crews even used a garden hose to try to beat back the flames. there is finally some much-needed rain on its way in southern california and parts of arizona. our meteorologist, pedram, joins us. >> it's not where you want it, as far as northern california,

pope francis will be heading to the u.s. later today, and some lucky people may have the chance to trade hats. swapping head fire has become a tradition with the pope. we have more on who's done it and how. >> reporter: we tend to notice the pope's skull cap. only when it flies off. it often appears ready for liftoff. usually when he's getting off a plane, but pope francis never loses face when a holy gust gets him. he's so humble he lets kids play with his cap. but did you know you can trade caps with the pope in. >> i thought i'm going to be on the plane with the pope. >> before philadelphia inquirer religion reporter boar boarded the pope's plane, he went and bought a new zucchetto for $68.
11:55 pm
when the pope came to the back of the plane, he handed him the new cap which the pope tried on for size then said -- a little big. and with the essence of pope upon it, francis gave the cap back to the reporter. >> for the pope, this is old hat. he does it all the at the same time. fans wave a cap at him. the pope mobile stops. if the cap fits, he keeps it and gives away the old one to these two boston college students, for instance. and if it doesn't fit, francis at least puts it on his head so when i returns it, it's been worn by a pope. for cap swappers, it's a thrill. >> i'm still shaking. >> reporter: for others, the thrill is m making a buck on e-y where caps said to have been worn by the pope are on sale for

12:02 am
number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front runner. >> and walker was considered a top tier candidate a few months ago, but his support fell over the summer. >> here's john king. >> he was inconsistent in his answers and didn't impress conservatives who early on thought he might have been their guy. he peaked back in march polling 16%. that n a crowded field, this is the moment where he was a contender for a bit. look at the slide going down. this is what killed him. after the cnn debate, he went to an asterisk. this is his peak in march. this is pretrump. he is leading in iowa. nationally 20% among men. 12% among republican women,
12:03 am
doesn't register anymore. conservatives thought he was his guy, he was a conservative hero. doesn't register anymore. fell through the floor. in part off poor performance. >> let's look at the rest of the field. >> this is amazing. it'll be interesting to see if others get out. trump down after the debate. that's the biggest headline. he was at 32% coming in. down to 24%. carly fiorina, up to 15% now. dr. carson down a bit. marco rubio up. jeb bush, a static line. trump is being tested. we'll see if he can handle adversity. his drop especially big among republican women. small declines among e v evangelica evangelicals. carly fiorina, takiing support from trump and carson.
12:04 am
you see republican women, tea party support. she went from nowhere to somewhere. her challenge is to capitalize. mr. trump has to deal with his first test of adversity. >> donald trump isn't is only reason scott walker is pulling out of the presidential race. i had a conversation earlier with ben ferguson. >> scott walker had two terrible debates in a row. you can only blame so much of this on donald trump. i think scott walker tried to overstretch in the first debate. in the second debate he didn't connect with people. that happens a lot with presidential candidates. unfortunately for him, his campaign is over early. much earlier than people thought it would be. i was shocked how quick this ended for him, but the race still has a lot of people in it, and there's a lot of months ahead that they're going to be fighting. >> he and other candidates have made the point that the republican candidate who wins
12:05 am
needs to have a more hopeful message than what he is saying is coming from donald trump. and despite his troubles, he had major financial backing. he is respected within the party, and it's likely he will be working behind the scenes as the weeks go onto undo trump's support. do you think that will gain any traction? >> i'm not sure. i think every time you see someone like a scott walker drop it, it gives the other candidates a better chance to stand out and to also gain in the polls. i mean, you look at even after the last debate. you had donald trump that lost support. you had carly fiorina jump to second place. ben carson still very steady at second and third. you also had marco rubio he was able to catapult after the last debate. there are a lot of people now paying attention. every time we have a debate, someone will drop out and
12:06 am
someone's race will become more realistic. >> there you have it, my chat. >> and ben carson is clarifying he would not support a muslim as u.s. president. he said he could support a muslim president as long as they effectively renounce their faith. >> and on facebook, carson said a muslim candidate would have to renounce sharia law. >> reporter: even in a campaign full of explosive comments, this one immediately stood out. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i absolutely wouldn't not agree with that. >> reporter: ben carson said that he wouldn't want a muslim as president in an answer to whether the islamic religion is consistent with the constitution. some of carson's competitors distanced themselves. >> well, the constitution provides that there should be no religious test for public office, and i'm a
12:07 am
constitutionist. >> there are two muslim members of congress, both lashed out at congress. >> that's almost like saying a neurosurgeon could never become the president of the united states. >> reporter: can a muslim with president of the united states of america? in a word, yes. now, let's move on. the conversation about muslims in america began at a donald trump town hall last week when he failed to correct a voter who falsely said president obama is a muslim. even though he is a christian. on sunday, when asked what he thinks about the idea of a muslim president, trump stirred the pot, making this not so subtle suggestion about president obama. >> some people have said it already happened, frankly, but of course you wouldn't agree with that. >> reporter: this as trump's status as front runner is starting to slip. down eight points in a new cnn poll since early this month.
12:08 am
and carly fiorina is on the rise in second place with 15% after a standout debate performance. when it comes to the name of the game which is winning the republican nomination, it's hard to see these comments not having an effect. i was talking to a smart republican who said there are two kinds of gop voter, those who like being energized by politically incorrect remarks, and the vast majority who want to win the white house and are concerned about what is perceived to be an intolerant remark or remarks that might preclude them from victory over democrats in 2016. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> a number of muslim leaders are calling on carson to drop out completely of the presidential race. >> cnn spoke with the executive director of the counsel on american islamic relations. >> he clearly trashed the united
12:09 am
states constitution by saying that an american muslim cannot be president of the united states. that is a religious test, and, therefore, he is proving himself unfit or not ready to lead the united states, because he's not going to up hold the constitution. >> in the meantime, carson is running strong at third place with 14% support. that's in the latest cnnorc poll of republican voters. >> anticipation is building as pope francis begins his u.s. tour just hours from now. the pope will arrive near washington where he will be greeted by president obama. >> and the white house is trying hard to take politics out of the pope's visit, but that is not easy as cnn's jim acosta reports. >> when pope francis arrives in washington for his first visit to the u.s., president obama will be welcoming a powerful political partner. but with the next presidential
12:10 am
election heating up, the white house is rejecting the notion the pope's trip is all about politics. >> there is no plan or strategy that's been put in place to try to stage an event that will advance anybody's political agenda. >> reporter: that's a tough claim to make considering the pope's positions. as the white house led the charge for same sex marriage, the pope has softened his own stance. on climate change, the pope says it's a global problem with grave implications. he slammed trickle down economics saying this opinion which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power. and then cuba, a change the pope
12:11 am

. >> later today, eu ministers are meeting to talk about an urgent problem, the hundreds of thousands of refugees looking for refuge. the countries disagree on what to do with some opposing the idea of mandatory quotas.
12:21 am
they're trying to develop a consensus. >> hungary's -- migrants trying to cross to austria. the prime minister called for the vote saying migrants were overrunning the country. >> translator: they are breaking the doors on us. hundreds of thousands. even millions desiege the borders of hungary and the european union. we cannot see the end. the successes are plenty. people are setting out on the journey. >> atika joins us with more on what to expect today. the major holdup here are the nations refusing to take in migrants. there have been threats of fines or financial penalties for
12:22 am
nations that don't come ply with a quota system. what are some of the ideas bouncing around today? >> reporter: there's a lot of different ideas. the main idea for quota is really being pushed by germany. this is an extension of their own system in germany, different counties take on a different amount of refugees, depending on their unemployment, how well they're doing economically, and what germany wants to see is that extended to other countries in the eu. the problem is that countries like hungary, and others, they're saying, look, we don't have the resources to deal with this influx of refugees. now, what they've all agreed on is to take in an extra 120,000 that have come into germany -- excuse me, through greece and italy. the problem is where do they go? a lot say they don't want to be forced to take in refugees. germany says there may be penalties if they don't take
12:23 am
them. what they're tussling over today is if there are financial incentives and penalties for taking and not taking refugees. so far there's no agreement, errol. >> what kind of time line are they, at least, trying to abide by. all indications are that while the changing season might slow the flow of migrants with temperatures decreasing, it won't stop there, and there's the concern of what will happen next year, the conflicts that many are running from, continue to rage. are they at least trying to address this quickly? >> reporter: the crisis is acute, and it needs to be resolved urgently, and yet, the country that's pushing for this to be resolved immediately is germany. other countries such as hungary and the check republican are more focussed on keeping migrants out rather than resettling them within the eu. what we're liking to see today is perhaps more agreement on how the frontiers of eu will be
12:24 am
patrolled. if there will be a border agency getting more funding and resources, what will be done to keep refugees and migrants out. the problem is, it's really not going to stop people from trying to cross. they're only going to find more dangerous ways to get into europe. this is what germany and france and other countries have been arguing. so unfortunately, even though need is urgent, unlikely to have a consensus soon. >> we'll be getting updates from atika throughout the day. >> and another story. the chief of volkswagen in the u.s. says the company, and i'm quoting here, totally screwed up. the environmental protection agency accuses the auto maker of cheating to pass clean air standards.

12:26 am
about, half a million cars, jet as, beetles, anything from 2009 to 2015, and what would happen is that when the cars were being tested, the engine computer recognized that the wheels, the steering wheel wasn't moving, and the way the wheels were actually turning, and it knew that this was the characteristic. it knew it was the characteristic of a test. so it enabled the switch, and, therefore, the emissions came down. and then once the car was back on the road, the computer recognized the wheels were turning, they were going in different ways, speeds were changing and the switch flipped again, and, of course, suddenly, everything went off, and the greatly the emissions were much greater because it's in normal driving. extraordinary how this took

12:33 am
slightly different tales with the same end result, which is stoking the flames of hate and fear of muslims. but in different ways. ben carson straightforward. ben carson, muslim can't be president because islam is incompatible with the constitution and american values. point-blank. you got that, done. donald trump is much more subtle. he didn't stand up to an anti-muslim bigot and he's said things like maybe obama is a muslim, that type of thing, and it wasn't the sweeds who attacked us on 9/11. but at the same time he'll say i love muslims. you have trump being a little more dog whistle or coded language. ben carson, straightforward, and in reality, they know it plays with republican base. a majority think president obama is a muslim, and of republicans, they have a much more negative view of islam than the rest of america. so not just do they think obama
12:34 am
is a muslim. they don't like muslims. they hate obama, and they don't like muslims either, and they think it's going to play in their base. thankfully, a few people in this race, ted cruz stood up and said it was wrong, chris christie said it was wrong, what ben carson was saying. so i think they're getting a little push and pull, and we'll see who the gop nominates. if they want someone espousing intolerant views or they want to reject them and nominate someone who's more em brags of the diversity of this company. >> we'll be watching the outcomes. how surprised are you that a recent cn n orc poll showed 29% of americans think president obama is a muslim. what does that tell you? >> it tells you that through de muslims, it's gotten hold and
12:35 am
taken traction. we can't dismiss the fact there are isis and al qaeda which are allowing, they make the demonization resonate with people, because they see scary images of al qaeda. they're out there. but these people on the right, certain, not all, republicans have ginned up the hate of muslim americans to the point where it's really scary to them. the goal of the muslim community is to reach out to our fellow americans, as many as we can to make it clear what we're about. polls show about 25% of americans have a muslim friend. i will be your muslim friend, and i mean that. people need to have a counter balance. >> let's keep the conversation going. >> i want to. >> dean, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. >> it was a pleasure. there are deepening concerns about moscow's intentions in syria with a rapid buildup of

12:45 am
but as far as the united states is concerned, it is cyber espionage and cyber security. this is what the white house had to say. >> what we're most focussed on is trade secrets and the ability of businesses to operate without the fear that they're going to be subjected to cyber attacks that steal their intellectual property. >> reporter: well, in a wall street journal article released today, the president and his advisors responded to questions where he says that the chinese government doesn't engage in any kind of way of stealing intellectual rights or commercial secrets. he also says that the government doesn't encourage chinese companies to do so, trying to distance himself from these controversial issues and particularly, the chinese government, but it is going ton. it's going on not just by china. a number of countries are involved in cyber espionage.
