go a different way, you can do it. doctors without borders is leaving the city in afghanistan where an air strike blew its hospital apart and now the group is demanding answers. we will go live to kabul. >> and north korea may soon release a u.s. resident who's been detained since april. we haven't seen this level of rain in the low country in 1,000 years. that's how big this is. >> historic flooding turns roads into rivers in the u.s. state of south carolina has rescue crews work to bring people to safety.
welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. we're here for the next two hours. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn news room". there is outrage in the wake of saturday's air strike on an afghan hospital run by doctors without borders. >> they say at least 22 people and 10 patients for killed. the u.s. is trying to figure out if an american gun ship is responsible. >> my reaction, i think, was the same that anybody's would, which is that this is a tragic loss of life. as far as the united states is concerned, and as far as our forces are concerned, that we be
fully transparent about our investigation, and also that we hold accountable if there is someone to be accountable, anybody responsible for doing something they shouldn't have done. >> and they are demanding an independent investigation. >> on its website the group responded to comments by some afghan officials that taliban were taking shelter inside the hospital. we are disgusted by the recent statements coming from some afghanistan government authorities. these statements imply that afghan and u.s. worses working tonight decided to raise to work together. this amounts to an admission of a war crime. now, an executive director from them explains why her organization is demanding a third party investigation. listen. >> for this to happen, it's
completely unbelievable and unacceptable. we want a body to have a look at this attack that is -- that wasn't vol involved in it. we feel it's important it's an independent body that holds an investigation. and we want full access to the findings and transparency. not only for those who were affected by the attack, the families of our staff and the patients that have been killed. it's very important for them to know how this could have happened. but also in terms of our future work in kunduz and in afghanistan. >> for more on the attack, and the anger, let's go to a reporter for the guardian newspaper live from kabul afghanistan. they describe the attack on the
hospital as a war crime. they say they're disgusted by afghan authorities saying taliban was in the hospital. what's being said about that, and what's the latest on the investigation underway by the u.s., nato, and the afghan authorities. we heard doctors without borders call for an independent investigation. that's not going to happen, is it? >> reporter: i don't know if any international party is going to be able to investigate this. as you said, nato and the u.s. military are conducting investigations into it, and msf sees that as tantamount to investigating their own possible war crimes. here in afghanistan there are a lot of officials who are repeating these claims that the taliban were inside the compound. msf says they have no reports of insurgents firing from the
hospital. on the contrary. they say there would have been patients and considered civilians, not combatants. we also have prominent afghan politicians who are not necessarily saying taliban were inside the compound but who have shown some sympathy for the fact that the u.s. military were firing against taliban insurgents in the area and in that sense, have some sort of understanding for the dilemma of the u.s. military. but there's also a lot of anger from people who have to deal with the fact that there's no medical facility now. there's still a lot of fighting and a lot of injured people to come in the coming days. during the past week, before this incident was saturday, they treated more than 400 patients. this is a huge blow to the community and the civilians in kunduz, no matter what officials
say. >> i wanted to talk to you about that and mind out what the people from the hospital are saying about what happened, and you mentioned that doctors with borders are pulling out of the hospital. what happened to those people who were there who survived? where have they gone, the impact on kunduz with them pulling out? >> reporter: some of the worst injured from that attack on saturday have been transferred by road either to the neighboring province about a two hour drive away, and a few of them have been taken by road to kabul, which is five or six hours away. they're now in safety. there's also a hospital in kunduz working in over capacity. some have be taken there. the msf staff were all unharmed
physically and have been flown and evacuated back to kabul where they are now in safety. some humanitarian organizations are trying now to prepare for food delivery in kunduz. because of the fighting a lot of people can't leave their houses to get food, and hopefully something we'll see in the coming days, but it's difficult with the fighting. >> it's a tragedy, for sure. live from kabul in afghanistan. russia says its air strikes in syria have considerably reduced the fighting power of isis militants. the strikes began wednesday and russia stepped up the pace over the weekend. moscow says it carried out 20 flights targeting isis positions in a province. >> the u.s.-backed coalition accuses russia of firing on syrian rebels. they say the russian effort has
to succeed to save the entire middle eastern region from destruction. turkey has supported syrian rebels in their fight against isis and the asaad regime. >> translator: the latest steps taken by russia in air strikes in syria is unacceptable for turkey in any way. i conveyed our stance to mr. putin both when i went to moscow and in a phone conversation a couple of days ago. russia is making a grave mistake, and this mistake could be a step that might isolate russia in the region. >> all right. turkey, obviously, upset. phil black joins us from moscow to talk about it. and there have been multiple daily updates provided by the russians. explain in detail the types of targets the country is claiming to be aiming for. >> reporter: yeah. they're all military-style targets, at least in
description. they talk about a wide range of objects and facilities from armored vehicles to training grounds, ammunition depos, command and control centers. even underground bunkers. what we're hearing with each of these updates is talk of how precise the russian weapons and strikes are. the fact that all of these facilities and targets attributed to either isis or terrorist groups and russia insists that no civilians are being hurt in these attacks. now, that is all, as we've been hearing, very different to what the united states and its allies, its coalition partners say. they say they're targeting other opposition groups that are a threat to the syrian groups and bashar al assad. they say civilians really are suffering. as you touched on, russia is talking up the effectiveness of its strikes in recent days insisting it's made a big
difference in reducing the effectiveness of the ability of the fighters on the ground to engage in combat. it's making claims that are difficult to verify about fighters on the ground fleeing in panic and terror, apbandonin their positions. >> phil black for us in moscow. north korea is reportedly ready to free a south korean student who's been detained since april. >> the south korean juneification ministry says she's expected to be handed over at the border in a few hours. he was a new york university student, but took a smes emeste off, he says the travel. >> and we are joined now with the details. what do we know? what's behind this? why was this student in north korea anyway? why was he detained in the first place, and why are we seeing his
release now? >> reporter: well, this student spoke to cnn back in may just a little while after he was originally arrested. he had been studying at new york university. he's a u.s. permanent resident by a south korean citizen. he took time off to travel, and he crossed, he says from china into north korea and acknowledged he did so illegally, and he actually said, at the time, that he wanted to be arrested. that this whole incident, would, he said, bring about a great event. he wanted to be able to tell the world that an ordinary college student would cross illegally into north korea and be released safely back home. that seems to be what's happening now. we're told that north korean authorities have informed south korea that the student will be returned at the border just in the next few hours. at that point, we're expecting that he will be held for questioning by the south korean side because it is illegal for
south korean citizens to go to north korea without permission. you would imagine there would be questions around that an. and what happened to him while he was in north korea. everything was happening you should the watchful eyes of the minders there in north korea. he said he was being treated well and he was well fed. he wasn't able to speak to his family, and we haven't heard anymore details about what happened in the last few months while he was being detained. it seems he's lucky because the south korean authorities are pointing out there are three other south korean citizens who remain in north korea. they were sentenced to life in hard labor carp camps, and they remain there on spying charges after having been found guilty of spying. so he could have been facing a much harsher punishment. it seems instead he's going to be returned in a few hours to south korea. >> yeah.
we will certainly watch that, count down to that, and see what this release may signal, perhaps, for those other people who have been detained in south korea. in north korea, keeping a close eye on that. >> lots more to get to for you this hour. record levels of rain are causing major flooding in parts of the u.s. coming up, we'll take you to south carolina where officials say the worst isn't over yet. >> plus another typhoon hits china and brings with it this powerful tornado. we'll have a full weather update for you in just a moment. stay with us. >> i was sitting in the front of the classroom. facing the teacher when everything happened. he just came in and shot towards the back of the wall and told everybody to get into the center of the room. >> is survivor of the massacre describes the chilling first moments of the attack.

about two feet of rain has hit areas since friday. search and rescue operations will pick up monday morning. >> officials say more than 200 water rescues like this one took place from saturday night to sunday afternoon. at least five people have died in weather-related incidents. >> you can imagine everyone is still trying to deal with all e water that came down over the weekend, and now the state is bracing for more rain in the coming hours. >> major highways closed and rur curfews are in effect. >> reporter: a desperate state as the rain continues to pound all of these cities across the state of south carolina. some of the areas hardest hit, columbia, south carolina. you can see to the left of me, a community we're told by some of the residents stranded there in their apartment complex, over here to my right, another community as well. another neighborhood that is
submerged and under water. and you see the cars that have tried to make this road, make it pass through this road. it's not a good idea. simply just a really bad situation here at this intersection. if we can say there is good news, the water level has slowly receded but there are plenty of impacted residents dealing with this hour by hour. this storm not letting up. that's part of the problem. this water has not had the time to recede. some of the local university of south carolina students, jim and will, tell us about how you've been affected and dealing with this. >> we went to clemson for the football and couldn't get back to our apartment. we can't get back. >> you are in a sense, victims of this flash flooding? >> yeah. i would say so. i mean, our roommate, he called us and told us it was pretty bad down here. i didn't expect anything like this. >> reporter: when you look at these images behind us and stare
at these new businesses that are almost entirely submerged in water, what do you think? this is your hometown right now. >> it's pretty crazy. we always go to moe's mondays and go to get groceries. we can't get there. pretty wild. >> reporter: does it impact you? is there an emotional level to this? >> i'm just hoping i can get back to my house. i need to do home work. >> take shelter. the governor had a press conference asking people to shelter in place. she said the storm could last into wednesday. >> nick in the middle of it all. let's bring in pedram. folks are being told to hunker down. >> it's the thing to do. flooding and fatalities across the united states, rain totals
when it comes to what's transpytran transpyred opens the record books. in 1979, in mt. pleasant, rain totals in excess of 24 inches putting it among the wettest periods for united states storms. the state of south carolina, look at it as a whole. the rainfall is expansive over a large area of this region, and we're talking about an area of rainfall that came down not just in charleston. it's extending to columbia. this accumulates to about roughly the size of 6.7 million oh lilympic sized swimming pool a matter of three days. this is why it's such a destructive event. we'll show you the pattern. plenty of tropical moisture. very easy to pick out that plume
of moisture that stretches out and goes into the carolinas as joaquin pulled away. a storm system in place as well and that led to some of the disastrous flooding across the region. we'll follow this story. it looks like a couple more days of rain ahead. >> and pedram, we know in france, parts of the country are dealing with extreme flash floods and have killed at least 17 people. that's according to to bfm tv which also reports at least four more people are missing along the country's south eastern med tra mediterranean coast. people are warning against travel because of the damage to roads and rail networks. let's go back to pedram. you have more on this flooding. talk to us about this, and i
also understand you're covering the typhoon in china. >> a lot going on. incredible to think more rainfall came down in this region of france in two hours than we saw in south carolina in that amount of time. six inches in two hours. in total, 194 millimeters which is a city well known for the film festival. the images showing you the destruction. vast majority of that coming in from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time. not upwards of six inches or 175 millimeters that we saw across this region. how about this. we know a typhoon made land fall across southern portions of china on saturday and sunday. you see a tornado touch down with it as well. typically not strong as the ones across the united states, but as you have with the storm moving
over land, the friction that takes place with the land mass interacting with the storm system, you can spot several twiste twisters. multiple fatalities over this region as well of china, and that is certainly a big story developing out of that region, and the rainfall total also pretty staggering across this region of china when you're look at the amounts of rain. eight inches coming in from this particular tropical feature. >> terrifying images there. >> stunning weather events all over. >> thanks pedram. >> and days after a horrific shooting at a u.s. community college, witnesses are coming forward with their accounts of what happened. >> nine people were killed when the gunman opened fire on a campus in oregon. we spoke to one survivor who told us about the moment the shooting began. >> reporte >> reporter: she is a mother of three children, and at one point she thought she would never see
them again. she's trying to deal with the thoughts of death that she has had throughout this experience. but she did survive this harrowing situation. >> i was sitting in the front of the classroom, facing the teacher when everything happened. he just came in and shot towards the back of the wall and told everybody to get around the room on the ground. >> reporter: did he hit anyone when he shot the first shot? >> no. he got everybody's attention, and everybody looked to the door, and he had guns with him, and he was armed. he had a bullet proof vest on, and he didn't seem like he was, like, anxious or anything. he seemed like he wanted to do that. and he seemed happy about it. he didn't seamstreem stresed or nervous. he told everybody to get on the
ground. everybody huddled to the ground. the girl in the wheelchair tried to get on the ground. >> reporter: there was a woman with n a wheelchair? >> yeah. she had a dog. the dog was on the ground. she went on the ground, and then he told her to get back on the chair, and then she tried to climb back on the chair, and then he shot her. >> reporter: she knew at this moment if he would shoot a woman in a wheelchair after making her get up and down on the chair, that no one would be spared. she says she thinks he just missed her when he was shooting people on the ground. she lied there in someone else's blood and pretended to be dead, and that's how she survived. >> a gut wrenching account of what happened. some survivors have said the gunmen asked victims about their religion and shot them no matter
their answer. new rules and new clashes. details in the deadly violence in jerusalem, and what sparked changes and who's allowed into the old city. >> and a vatican priest challenges the rolman catholic church on six wallty. ♪ if we are wise, we know there's always tomorrow ♪ >> hillary clinton proves she can carry a tune and she has a sense of humor. ...in bed all day... ...you need the power of... new theraflu expressmax. new theraflu expressmax. the power to feel better. ♪ nothing artificial. just real roasted turkey. carved thick.

enflame tensions of what's happened even more. >> reporter: panic in the old city of jerusalem about 8:30 in the evening, screens of a dying rabbi. moments before he attempted to defend an israeli couple and their infant from strapping by a 19-year-old man. captured by a palestinian shop owner. police say by the time they arrived, the attacker had grabbed the gun. now they will kill him says a voice in arabic. shooting happens out of frame. israeli police say when the teenager fired, police shot and killed him. he was later identified as a palestinian from the west bank. his last facebook posting, according to to what i say the third enfatata has started.
in that charged atmosphere, israelis gather. people want revengrevenge, they. one young boy shouts death to arabs. then two hours later, a block away, another incident captured on a cell phone. another 19-year-old palestinian man is seen running outside a tram line. followed by israelis shouting he's a terrorist shoot him, shoot him. in another video you hear seven gunshots and a man falls to the ground. a police officer is pointing his gun. voices off camera ask did he stab someone? someone answers, no, he did not
succeed. who did he try to attack? israeli police say the 19-year-old man was shot holding a knife in his hand covered in blood. police say he just stabbed a 15-year-old israeli boy. palestinians say he'd attacked no one, just got into a verbal altercation with protesters. they say the israeli protesters syr simply wanted him dead. his friends say he was peaceful and loved fashion and wanted to be a model. his father says he was executed in cold blood. for days there have been running clashes clashes. far right israelis have been visiting a mosque compound. now stone throwing and tear gas have escalated to stabbings and gunfire. the video will likely make tensions worse. >> we are joined now live from
jerusalem with more on this. it's difficult to watch all of this, but how are officials on both sides of this divide responding to this violence? >> reporter: well, errol, israeli officials are blaming a palestinian leadership for inciting violence and according to israeli media reports, they're considering a range of security additional security measures from the fast tracking the raising of attackers homes to increasing the number of what they call administrative detentio detentions, which is detaining suspects without trial or charge. we're expecting the israeli cabinet to make a decision on the additional security measure. palestinian authorities are blaming israeli authorities for trying to start what they say is a religious war. so both sides blaming each
other, and the situation really remaining tense. errol. >> and we're seeing some footage from the area on sunday. you were in the old city yesterday. just describe for us how tense the atmosphere is there. the fear now is that one small incident, one small clash could again become deadly. >> reporter: yeah. well, i was there in the old city yesterday. i would say it was eerily quiet. now, that area is normally bustling full of shoppers and shop keepers. yesterday with the restrictions in place preventing palestinians access to the old city, the shops were shuttered. there was a small number of tourists we saw, but there was also a very heavy security presence, and on the ground, evidence of clashes, pea pieces of glass, rubber bullets. as for the noble sanctuary known to jesus as the temple mount, we
didn't see them allow anyone into that site. we saw a 75-year-old woman get turned away outside the old city at prayer time, men and women praying in the streets. they said they were angry and frustrated at the restrictions, restrictions that israelis say were put in place for security purposes. >> and those restrictions, they're allowing muslim men over 50, old city residents, business people in the area and students, but not allowing anyone else, of course, is causing more anger as well. erin, thanks. >> we'll take a very short break here, but coming up on cnn news room, surrounded by a scandal, the vatican kicks off its global meeting on family just a day after relieving a gay priest of his duties.

>> a global meeting of catholic bishop and cardinals kicked off. they addressed the issues facing families, but it's surrounded by scandal. a polish priest announced he's in a same sex relationship. >> they relieved him of his duties. cnn spoke with him earlier, and he says he hopes the catholic meeting with address the issue. >> my hope is great, and my hope is pope francis. for us, he's this guy which, for me, to discuss dialogue, to open heart and reason, in synod, i think, i'm sure that we must, like all the church, to understand, to reflect, and to
meet all families. all families of our world and of our church. >> pope francis opened sunday's synod by reaffirming the catholic opposition to gay marriage, but he urged the church to be more open and merciful to all people. he held a private meeting with a long time friend from argentina who has been in a same sex relationship for almost 20 years. we want to bring in deliah live from rome. what impact might this admission by the priest that he's? a same sex relationship have on the catholic church, do you think? >> reporter: well, rosemary, as you mentioned, they begin their meetings this morning, and on their agenda, which is a very large agenda, discussing a number of issues, there is a small part reserved for gay
issues. it's interesting to note that they come right out and say that they are opposed to gay marriage, that they cannot condone it. they are discussing how to be more welcoming to gays, how to make the announcement and let people know that they respect gay people, that gay people have dignity, but it's in the language, it's in their approach. the question of actually condoning gay marriage does not seem to be on the table. what monsignor krysztof olaf charamsa has done in coming out has focussed more attention on this upcoming meeting, but the cardinals i've spoken to in the role up to this and in their official agenda suggests change on gay marriage is not on the table. >> and this polish priest also called the catholic church home
aphobic. what will this mean for him when he's sent back to poland? what happens nec for him now? >> well, what's happened at the vatican is he's lost his job. he remains a priest. what has to happen is he goes back to poland with his bishop and discusses the procedure now for the defrocking where he is removed from the priestly state. he can ask for it himself, or the vatican together with the polish bishop can initiate a procedure to do that. >> all right. deliah reporting there live from rome. many thanks to you. >> we turn our attention now to u.s. politics. the race for the speaker of the house of representatives could turn into a big public fight within the republican party. >> a long shot representative jason chaffetz from utah has announced his plans to run for the post john boehner is leaving later this month.

iraq is a disaster. and -- >> bet ur off -- >> isis came out of iraq. >> i understand. >> it was the leftovers that didn't get taken care of. >> you think things would be more table? >> of course it would be. >> trump has yet to reveal his formal position on foreign policy, but he keeps weighing in on the campaign trail, and here's how cnn senior political analyst explained trump's position. >> trump has put together what could be a defensive nationalism in which the world is seen as a dangerous, corrupt, confusing place where they are always trying to take advantage of us, and our interactions with the world on any front, a wall on immigration, tariffs on trade, suspicion is dangerous and against that kind of engage. >> and hillary clinton has been fighting the perception she's

>> the aid agency, doctors without borders, is voicing outrage over an apparent air strike on one of its hospitals in afghanistan. the attack saturday killed 12 staffers and 10 patients. >> they say it amounts to a war crime. the group is calling for an independent inquiry. meanwhile, the united states is trying to determine if an american gun ship is to blame. the u.s. defense secretary promising the investigation will be thorough and transparent. >> my reaction, i think, was the same that anybody's would be, which is that this is a tragic loss of life. your heart can only go out to innocent people who were caught up in this kind of violence. as far as the united states is concerned, and as far as our forces are concerned, that we be fully transparent about our
investigation, and also that we hold accountable, if there is someone to be held accountable, anybody responsible for doing something they shouldn't have done. >> and doctors without borders has pulled out of the city of kunduz where the air strike took place. >> listen here as an executive director from the group explained by the situation there has become simply unacceptable. >> well, for us it's completely shocking. the circumstances around it are very, yeah, i mean, it's -- i'm almost lost for words. the international military pulses and afghan military know exactly where the hospital is. we've been working there for four years. it's a very busy, vital facility for the population of northeast afghanistan, and we handed over the gps coordinates of the hospital on the 29th of september. that was the most recent update.
there's no question that they knew exactly where the hospital was and who was running it. and so really, for this to happen, it's completely unbelievable and unacceptable. >> we want somebody, we want a body to have a look at this attack that wasn't involved in it. we feel it's really important that there is an independent body that holds an investigation. and we want full access to whatever findings come out, and full transparency. not only, of course, for those that were actually affected by the attack, the families of our staff and the patients that have been killed. it's very important for them to know how this could have happened. but also in terms of our future work in kunduz and in afghanistan. we have r a medical humanitarian
organization. we depend for our safety on people understanding that we are only there to provide medical support to civilians caught in the middle of a vicious conflict. and, of courbviously, this throo question all of the norms that we use to keep ourselves safe. so for our future activity in afghanistan, it's extremely important that we understand the exact circumstances around this attack. >> so many questions in the aftermath of this attack. we want to go now to a reporter for the guardian newspaper joining us live from kabul, afghanistan. what are you hearing from people at the scene of this attack on the hospital in kunduz? because the questio, as we heard there, how does a hospital become a target? >> reporter: that's a question that everyone in kunduz is
asking themselves, i think. the hospital is in the center of the city. it's easy to recognize. and people are describing these scenes from the fighting around 2:00 a.m. on saturday morning as very cloud, more violent than what they had heard in the previous week, and there's no doubt people say, that there was an american gunship that caused a lot of havoc around the scene. it was heavy fighting on saturday morning and friday night, around the area of the hospital. now, afghan officials say including the police chief spokesman, say the taliban fighters were fighting either from the main building in the hospital or from the roof. but msf deny this, and the doctors i spoke to hours after the attack said there were no reports and no signs of insurgents fighting from within the compound.
they realize mfs was doing humanitarian work and that they were treating civilians, soldiers and insurgents equally when they came. they were all civilians. that was very widely recognized in the community. >> and now that msf are pulling out of kunduz, what will that mean for the city, and how long will it take for more information to come out of the nato, u.s., and afghan investigations that are currently underway? something, of course, that's been called a war crime by msf. >> reporter: yeah. this is a disaster for kunduz. there's no other way of putting it. the fighting is still raging in the province. people are still being injured. msf treated more than 400 people last week before the incident
happened, and now there's only the provisional left which is over capacity and is of a far far inferior standard. the worst patients have been transferred to a neighboring province of kabul, but for the raining days and weeks of the fight, there will not be the same kind of health care for people in kunduz. the afghan, the u.s. and nato's investigations of the incident are liable to drag on for a few more days. they said they'll probably be concluded within a matter of days. that's something that everybody is looking to, anxiously, but as we said in the beginning, they're demanding an independent body to investigate this. >> it is a tragedy. we will, of course, await the outcome of that three-pronged
investigation. many thanks to you, reporting live from kabul. there are a numb of major weather stories around the world. guatemala, families are mourning the victims of a massive landslide. at least 131 people died after the side of a hill collapse on the thursday night. residents and rescuers are digging through mud and debris all in search of hundreds who are still missing. and in the u.s., parts of south carolina are being inundated by historic rainfall. more than half a meter or about two feet of rain has hit some areas since friday. at least 21,000 people are without power right now. and if that wasn't enough, the state is bracing more more rain in the coming hours, and the governor is urging people to stay home. >> what we are going to continue to say is if you're in your
house, stay in your house. this is not something on out taking pictures of. this water is not safe. a lot of areas where you see the deep water, it has bacteria. stay inside and don't get in there. we've seen areas of the interstate that are right now clear, but there will be a patch where it gets real deep. >> now, search and rescue operations will pick up monday morning for residents who need to be evacuated. it's just past 3:00 a.m. now. so as soon as there's daybreak, they'll try to make progress. major highways have been closed and curfews are in affect as well. >> just don't be stupid. i mean, that's the thing. you keep seeing, don't try to drive through flooded areas. you don't know how deep they'll be. >> and officials say more than 200 water rescues like this one took place fromatur sy night to sunday afternoon.
at least five people have died in weather-related incidents. we want to find out more about this. our meteorologist, pedram joins us in the studios. tell us, when is this likely to come to an end? >> i think it's starting to dwindle. in 24 hours, it'll be done in south carolina. it's one of the more prolific rain events in the united states. we did the math on exactly how much water was released over the state of south carolina. it's about 4 trillion gallons of water. that would be enough to fill about 7 million olympic pools. that's a staggering amount of rainfall from friday. >> everyone was surprised. >> we talked about it on friday that we could get quite a bit of rain. and showing you how it transpired, the entire state, the area indicated in the pink and purple, that's where the half a meeter happened.
it stretches from st. charles out toward columbia. about 24 inches in mt. pleasant. that's about 65 billion gallons of water just across the charleston area alone. again, impressive to think about this. and joaquin partly responsible. the moisture was pulled away. everything it takes to open the record books and make this a record event. it tapped into some moisture from joaquin. this is why we had so much rainfall. nearly the entire state under flood warnings, especially on the immediate coast. that's where the concern is for additional rainfall as joaquin pulls away. the rainfall, again, could continue through really the northern portion of south carolina. notice charleston, the vast
majority of rain has moved away. myrtle beach, possibility of rain before conditions improve. a staggering number when you think about one of the largest number of rainfall totals we've ever seen in the united states. number three, to be precise, when it comes to one storm and one area being impacted. >> incredible. >> it is. >> thanks for keep ang eye on that. >> there's a possible new clue for a missing container ship. the company says the container has been found that appears to be from a missing vessel. the 32 crew members went missing thursday while navigating through hurricane joaquin. >> a debris field was found, but it's not clear if it's from the ship. the only thing confirmed is this life ring. they found it about 120 kilometers from the ship's last
known location. we're getting the first accounts of how some people lost their lives in horrific flash floods in france. cnn affiliate, bfm reports at least 17 people were killed in the floods. >> and at least three people died in a retirement home. other reports suggests several people died while parking their cars or drowned when their vehicle became trapped in a tunnel. officials are warning people against traveling because of the damage to roads and rail networks. now, a south korean student who has been detained since april is about to be released. >> the south korean unification ministry says he's expected to be handed over in the next hour. he was a student at new york university. >> kathy novak is following this and joins us with details. this was just announced a few hours ago. we don't know a lot of details about precisely why this student
decided to cross into north korea. what do we know about him, and what he said was his motivation for heading there? >> reporter: well, he was arrested back in april, errol, and in may he spoke to cnn while our team was in north korea, and what he said at the time was that he had crossed illegally. he admitted, from china into north korea, and that he wanted to be arrested. he said that he thought this would bring about a great event. he wouldn't really elaborate on what that great event might be, but he seemed to be saying that he wanted to show the world that an ordinary college student could go into north korea and be released and return home. this was a huge risk he was taking. he could have been facing very severe punishment in north korea. he was arrested for coming into the country illegally. but ultimately, it doesn't seem that he faced a trial. three other south korean citizens had a different fate.
they were tried on spying charges, and they got life sentences in north korean labor camps. the south korean government is welcoming this announcement that this south korean citizen who is also a u.s. permanent resident will be returned at the border, but the south korean government continues to call for the release of the other three. >> while he may have had positive intentions, he inserted himself into tense diplomatic relations between north and south korea and the states. what do we know about what will happen to him upon the handover, and if he'll place any discipline on the south korean side or if he'll be able to return to the states? >> reporter: that is a big question, errol. south korean citizens aren't allowed to just go into north korea without specific permission. and the national intelligence service will have questions for him. they will be looking into whether he did violate any south korean national security laws. there are strict laws in this
country about what south koreans can do when it comes to associating with north korea. people can't hop on a north korean website if they want to get any news. this will be taken very seriously from the south korean side as well. authorities here are welcoming the fact that he has been released. the government released a statement saying that it is relieved that he has been released. but it has questions of its own. errol. >> how often do we hear a bit of good news and positive developments out of the north. kathy novak live for us. thanks, kathy. >> let's take a short break here. still to come, syria's president assesses the risk isis poses and says russia's intervention is vital. details coming up in a live report. moms knowafter brushing, mouths often need a helping hand. listerine® total care helps prevent cavities,

sunday. >> it framed the approach to the roman city. the director general has called the destruction a war crime. >> the syrian president says the threat from isis puts the entire middle east at risk not just one or two states. in an interview with iranian television, al asaad said russian intervention in syria is vital or the whole region will be destroyed. >> he said a year-long fight by the u.s. has been counter productive. >> as to their recent statements about a transitional period and other issues, i would like to be very clear. no foreign officials might decide the future of syria. the future of syria's political system, or the individuals who should govern syria. this is the syrian people's decision. >> well, russia intensified the
air strikes in syria own the weekend and says it has considerably reduced the ability of isis to fight. in the meantime, russia's air campaign is raising the eye of turkey. we are joined now live from moscow with the latest on all of this. phil, what proof is there that the russian air strikes have impacted isis in any way, and talk to us about turkey's reaction to these air strikes. >> reporter: turkey has been very critical. critical in principle of russia's action, and more than that, we're learning details of a much more tense details involving turkey and a russian fighter jet. it's just releasing tom details of this. it apparently happened on saturday. it says a russian fighter
violated the air space and was intercepted by two turkish f-16s before that russian jet then proceeded back into syrian air space. because this happened over the weekend, we're learning that already some protests have been launched. the russian ambassador was warned not to let this happen again, and they've had discussions as well as turkey's allies, the foreign ministers of the united states, italy, the uk, and so forth. and it's talking about maintaining conversations about this. what it all shows, the risks, the potential tensions that can very quickly escalate by having so many and such a highly military situation within really a limited air space. we've heard concerned about this from the outset made by the united states and so forth about russia operating in this air space without any real
coordination or any real contact between russia and the united states and its coalition partners, and so forth. there's been call for talks. the united states was particularly unhappy with the short notice and the nature of the notice that was given by russia when it first began the strikes. effecti effectively, it was a note delivered to the u.s. embassy that said you'd better ground your planes. here we come. since then talks from begun. but the communication going on between the russians and the united states and its partners, not as they should be. and there's a risk that an incident like this could escalate and have much more serious undepended consequenint. >> and russian officials have been releasing lists of targets that have been hit, and they insist isis is the main target. not everyone agrees. what have you been learning about that?
>> reporter: so where t russian view, and you're right, we're getting a list of targets that they claim to have struck. they are military in nature. weapons depos, these sorts of things, training camps, vehicles, bomb factories. that's the way they're being described and being attributed by being operated by isis ar terrorists. that's the russian view that they are hitting terrorists and isis in the same way, they say, that the united states and its allies are in their operations. russia says they're doing so accurately and they say they're doing so in such a way that no civilians are harmed. but as you're touching on, we know the assessment of the united states and the allies is different. they say russia is only going after groups that are targeting the asaad regime specifically. they say civilians are suffering. >> phil black joining us there live from moscow. many thanks for bringing us up
to date on the situation. doctors without borders is calling the attack on their hospital a war crime. coming up, we'll look at what that charge entails and see what it means for groups in war zones. >> and a vatican priest is fired after announcing he is in a same sex relationship. we'll have a live report from rome coming up here on "cnn news room".
hour. doctors without borders has pulled out of the zbafghan cityf kunduz. at least 22 people were killed. >> in the u.s., search and rescue operations will pick up in the coming hours in south carolina. historic rains are battering parts of the state. at least 21,000 people are without power right now. major highways have been closed and curfews are in affect. officials say some hospitals could evacuate due to water shortages. >> the syrian president says the coalition of iran, russia, iraq, and syria would be successful to protect the entire middle east from destruction. the remarks come after russia says its intensifying the air strikes in syria. >> we want to look more in depth
on the attacks against the hospital. the group says that attack amounts to a war crime. a law professor at the chinese university of hong kong has been a prosecutor, advisor and collar of cases involving war crimes. he's the perfect person to discuss this us. thank you for joining us today. let's start here. doctors without borders says this is a war crime. based on what we know, which isn't much, does it appear to be anything close to that in your view? >> on the surface, when you see a hospital attacked as it was and 22 people killed, there is a credible allegation of a war crime. but we don't know a lot of the facts surrounding it, and i think we have to be cautious before we jump to any conclusions. this is an area of active combat, and it may be that there
were operations in the vicinity, and that the hospital was not intentionally targeted. in which case it might be collateral damage, and there are other issues to consider. >> msf says the reason they feel this is a war crime because if their view, it was targeted precisely and repeatedly. one of the unknowns is where the taliban were at the time. the afghan government says there were militants inside the hospital who were armed. msf says that's not true. and even if they were treating them, they typically leave their weapons outside. is that a key question or one of the key questions you want to get the answers to? >> absolutely, because if this was a direct and intentional attack, it's a hospital, which is a protected site. you can't under the laws of war
attack sites such as hospitals, schools, religious buildings, things like that. however, the hospital as a biddibi building can lose its immunity if it's being used for military attacks. we would need to know what kind of attacks were carried on in the hospital if any, and as well, the united states even if attacks were being carried out from the hospital, would have to respect certain principles of precaution. in other words, they would have to make sure that they were using weapons that would be the least destructive and give warnings to civilians to try to get them out, things like that. so it's very complex. we would need to know those facts. >> and the u.s. will be investigating itself. how much faith do you put in an investigation like that, and msf says it should be done by a third independent body. is that even possible? >> well, that is also a
complicated question. and i think the answer to it is if you look, it's going to have to be the u.s. that conducts the investigation. let me say the united states has condu conducted investigations and put on trial its military personnel in connection with war crimes allegations, and it has prosecuted them. let me say it's not out of the question that if there were, in fact, a war crime committed here, the united states could undertake a legitimate investigation and possibly prosecution. >> all right. >> that said, there have been allegations the other way and certainly the united states is not subject to the international criminal court, and that's something that a lot of people criticize the u.s. for. there's no outside body that can make sure it's being held accountable. >> it's angered a lot of people, and we have to wait to get more
investigation. thank you for joining us. i appreciate it. >> my pleasure. thank you for having me. and another story we've been following closely in jerusalem's old city, israeli authorities taking extreme action banning palestinians from entering the old city. the action taken after a knife and gun attack that killed two israelis and injured two others. >> increased violence between palestinians and israelis escalating tensions to new heights. last week an israeli couple was shot and killed in front of their four children. a week prior, a palestinian teenager shot at a military check point. the latest developments are shocking, and they may be difficult to watch. >> the overnight events caught on cell phone video. they threatened to inflame tensions even more. erin mclaughlin reports.
>> reporter: panic in the old city of jerusalem. about 8:30 in the evening, screams of a dying rabbi. they say moments before he attempted to defend a couple from stabbing by a is the-year-old palestinian man. the subsequent attack captured on cell phone. by the time they arrived, the attacker grabbed the rabbi's gun. now they will kill him, says an off camera voice in arabic. shooting happens out of frame. israeli police say when the shooting happens, police shot and killed him. his last facebook post, according to what i see, the third enfa tau a has started. the rabbi died of stab wounds.
people want revenge, they say. in he brew a young boy shouts death to arabs, then another incident captured on cell phone footage. in the 19-year-old palestinian man is seen running outside the old city. followed by israelis shouting he's a terrorist. shoot him. shoot him. in another video you see the police arrive and you hear 7 gunshots as he falls to the ground. you see a police officer pointing his gun. voices off camera ask, did he stab someone? someone answers no, he did not succeed. who did he try to attack?
israeli police say the 19-year-old man was shot holding a knife in his hand covered in blood. they say he attacked a 15-year-old israeli boy. palestinian officials say he got into a verbal altercation. they say the israeli protesters simply wanted him dead. he was later identified. his friends say he was peaceful and loved fashion and wanted to be a model. his father says he was executed in cold blood. for days there have been running clashes at palestinians protest restrictions that prohibited palestinian men under the age of 50 from worshipping with a mosque. now stone throwing and tear gas have escalated to stabbing and gunfire. the video will likely like tensions worse in this already tense city. >> some truly disturbing images
there. erin is joining us live from jerusalem. how are israeli and palestinian officials responding to this increased violence? >> reporter: well, israeli and palestinian officials are blaming each other. now, according to israeli media reports, israeli authorities are considering a range of additional security measures. those measures from increasing the pace of something called administrative detentions, which is detaining suspects without trial or charge. and they're also considering fast tracking the raising of atta attacker's homes, a controversial practice. we are expecting israeli cabinet to meet later this evening to make a decision on any additional security measures. >> all right. many thanks to erin with that live report from jerusalem. >> catholic bishops and
cardinals from around the world have kicked off a meeting. >> but it began under a cloud of controversy. that controversy coming after a polish priest announced he's in a same sex relationship. the vatican responded quickly and relieved that priest of his duties. >> let's bring in our vatican correspondent live from rome. deliah, in some ways this priest makes it seem as if he felt encouraged to come out thanks to the many progressive comments pope francis has made about same sex couples. is it possible that he thought he wouldn't get fired? that change had finally come to the vatican? >> reporter: presume presumably understand the implications but thought it would be worth it to advance his cause. on the vatican's side, they said they didn't appreciate the timing.
they thought it was timed to influence the discussions which will address, in part, gay issues. let's take a closer look at what happened this weekend. the synod has began, a mass opening a meeting with cardinals and bishops from around the world to discuss the catholic church's approach to issues addressing families. pope francis has been known for his openness to gay people. embracing a gay cup until washington d.c. over a week ago. his old student and his partner and saying last year, who am i to judge about a gay priest who worked for him. but on saturday, they fired an openly gay priest. for the vat begican, gay or
straight, a priest cannot be in a gay relationship. >> my decision of coming out is a very personal decision in the hoem phobic world. it has been very difficult and very hard. >> reporter: they say they welcome gay people, but they do not think there can be a change in the catholic church's opposition to gay unions or marriage. a cardinal from england will be one of the participants in the upcoming discussions. >> for people who are, however they'd like to describe themselves, gay people, same sex, there must be respect and an appreciation of their god-given dignity. there will not be any change that makes equivalence between a same sex partnership and a marriage. in the teachings of the church,
they're not the same. >> reporter: and whether pope francis's view changes the view of the catholic church will be one to watch. and while he has been relieved of his duties remains a priest and it will be up to his bishop in poland to initiate any removal. >> the synod continues. thanks very much. >> we'll take a short break. still to come here on cnn news room, chilling details about the gunman who opened fire on a college campus from the people who survived that deadly attack. >> i was sitting in the front of the classroom. facing the teacher when everything happened. >>mine hurt more.. >>mine stopped hurting faster! neosporin plus pain relief starts relieving pain faster

anxious or something. he seemed like he wanted to do that. >> and witnesses say the shooter singled out a student after his rampage began. that student survived. his mother told cnn after the gunman killed three people, he made a request. >> there were people being shot around him, and at a certain point the shooter singles out him. is that correct? >> yes. >> what did the shooter do? >> the shooter asked him to give the police something, and that if he did, he would live. matthew said at that point he didn't quite get what the shooter said. he thought he was standing up to die. and that when the shooter gave him what he was told to give to the police, he was then sent to sit in the back of the room, facing the room, and to watch what was going on.
matthew said that he froze. he didn't make a single move. he was afraid to look away, that if he made anything -- did anything to make the shooter note h notice him that he would be shot. so he just sat there. >> reporter: he's sitting there watching the shooter execute people? >> yes. >> just stunning. law enforcement officials say the shooter handed his writings to a survivor. it appears he studied past mass shootings and identified with the people behind these attacks. we'll have more news for you after this short break.
