10:00 pm
>> this is cnn newsroom live in los angeles. the head of the united nations pleading with israelis an palestinians to pull back from the abyss. republican paul ryan said he's willing to be the next speaker of the house of representatives but the offer comes with conditions. and later, videos hoverboards and flying cars? how "back to the future" predicted the future 30 long years ago. hello, great to have you with us. we welcome our viewers all throughout the united states. "newsroom l.a." begins now.
10:01 pm
>> u.s. politics, republican and congressman paul ryan reluctantly coming forward to take on the job as speaker of the house of representative. he made the announcement a few hours ago. but he says there are conditions. he wants support from three key factions within the party. and he says he's not willing to give up valuable time with his young family. ryan says he plans to make his decision within the week. this is not a job i've ever wanted and ever sought. i'm in the job i've always wanted here and congress came to the conclusion thats in a very dire moment, not just for congress and the republican party, but for our country. and i think our country is in desperate need of leadership. >> i asked republican strategist leslie sanchez if paul ryan can unite the republicans. >> the issue is this fraction between the conservatives and
10:02 pm
the establishment republicans and can he bridge the gap. he's seen as a national figure, a big leader. he has conditions to accept this position, but i think if anybody can lead this party, it's certainly paul ryan. he understands the national, demographic, cultural, the changing landscape and the politics involved. >> across the aisle, vice president joe biden is still stoking speculation he could soon join the race for the white house, but it seems he's already started a campaign of sort against the current democratic front-runner hillary clinton. the senior washington correspondent has our report. >> joe biden spent the day reminding people he's one heart beat of presidency. >> they went around the room.
10:03 pm
leon panetta said go. and bob gates who already publicly said this said don't go. >> he said he had the last word with the president, not hillary clinton who said she advised the president with the high stakes raid. >> i was the one who said go ahead. his advisers were split. it was a very risky operation. >> biden didn't stop there. he said he had a hand in every decision, even choosing clinton as secretary of state.
10:04 pm
>> polls show biden in a distant third and more advisers say he shouldn't run, the campaign goes on. he says he doesn't always think republicans are the bad guys. >> i don't think my chief enemy is the republican party. this is a matter of making things work. hillary clinton was asked to name her enemies. >> in addition to the nra, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the iranians, probably the republicans. >> cnn, washington. >> joining me now is bill carrick, he's a democratic political strategist. we're now at the point where he has to fish or cut bait. the more this goes on, the more
10:05 pm
good will he loses in the party? >> i think obviously these deadlines are coming up very quickly. and that's the one structural thing he had to deal with. i always felt like he could raise money online and in the donor race throughout the years. he's got to beat these deadlines. he doesn't have any choice. he's got to make a decision here quite quickly. he can't blow off entire states like the size of texas or georgia. it's ridiculous. >> we've got a situation where it's pretty clear that part of biden really, really wants to run. then there's a conflict where another part of him is reluctant or hesitant. if he can't resolve that conflict soon, or maybe because he's taken so long already to resolve this conflict within himself, has his window of opportunity closed, has he missed the point? >> we have a new batch of polls
10:06 pm
that will deal with the reality of the vice president of the united states run, a guy who's very popular in the party, and obviously been the object of an outpouring of national sympathy. >> he also framed this saying leon panetta was gung ho to go do it and bob gates, the former secretary of defense was equally adamant not to do it. it's too risky.
10:07 pm
>> fall ryan if he does get this job, is he the guy? is he going to be conservative enough for the ultra tea party freedom caucus part of the republicans. >> paul ryan said okay, if you people promise to behave i'll get behind my leadership and we'll be one effect i have republican party. i isle do a job i really don't want. >> bill, good point. we appreciate you coming in. thank you, nice to see you. >> a new cnn poll shows two republican presidential
10:08 pm
candidates soaring above all of the other rivals, donald trump is holding a strong lead over ben carson. dana bash has the latest on the republican race for the white house. >> 2/3 of gop voters now say trump and carson are their first and second choice according to cnn orc's new poll. >> we are both resonating, there's no question about it. >> reporter: it's not just that trump and carson have support, it's that their supporters are excited about them. which makes them more likely to actually go out and vote. 30% of trump's supporters are very enthusiastic. 25% of carson's. by contrast, only 3% of jeb bush voters are enthusiastic about him. >> we need to be much more forceful both here to protect
10:09 pm
the homeland as well as overseas to create a strategy to unite the world against this great threat. i don't believe donald trump has the capability of doing that. >> just two weeks ago on the same cnn program, he said the opposite. >> we made a terrible mistake getting there in the first place. we had brilliant thinkers that didn't know what the hell they were doing. >> when reminded of that today, trump denied flip flopping. >> look, afghanistan is a different thing. it's neck to pakistan and pakistan has nuclear weapons, okay? >> the trump confusion and controversy has not hurt him in the past. despite questionable remarks about women, appearing to make
10:10 pm
fun of carly fiorina's face, he's tied with female republican voters. >> i think women all over the country heard very clearly what mr. trump said. >> as for fiorina, the only female candidate in the republican race served after a strong debate showing last month has ended. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> we have this into cnn, a new york city police officer is shot in the head while chasing a gunman in east harlem. he was responding to reports of gunshots. the plane clothes officers exchanged fire with a suspect who was arrested and treated for gunshot wounds to his leg.
10:11 pm
>> ban ki-moon will meet with palestinian leaders in the next two hours. he appears at a conference with benjamin netanyahu. >> we need to keep the situation from from escalating into a religious conflict. >> it does seem no end from the attacks from the palestinians and the tough security measures from the israelis. >> another act of violence this
10:12 pm
morning in the west bank. a 15-year-old girl was shot while she was, according to israeli officials, trying to approach an israeli jewish settlement with a knife. we don't know the status of that 15-year-old girl just yet. but as you touched on the cycle of violence shows no sign in the foreseeable future. is this the new normal? random knife attacks carried out by individuals seeking to harm israeli citizens, police, soldier, attacks seen with such frequency over the last two weeks. they continue, and that would mean the very tough restrictive israeli security measures continue as well. including the effective lockdown that exists around some fall stinian communities in east jerusalem. the other option, well, that's even more grim. tensions as high as they are, it
10:13 pm
could almost be triggered at anytime. >> at this point are speeches and calls for calm pretty much next to useless? and if so, then where does that leave the situation as to what needs to be done within the israeli leadership and the palestinian leadership? >> well, so you have the u.n. secretary general having a go at trying to calm the u.s. secretary of state is going to try his hand here as well. perhaps these international figures could convince the palestinian leaderships to dial back their language a little, perhaps trying to denounce some of this violence, but no real hope that's going to happen. the reality is on both sides, there's the belief that the other is talking and behaving in ways that is only exacerbating this con in incompetent, this cycle of violence, if you like.
10:14 pm
so the israelis blame the palestinians for using what they say is enormous incitement for effectively encouraging the terror and violence that's taking place here, the hatred of jews, they say. the palestinians, well, they believe that this is all part of the anger and frustration over what they perceive as the wider israeli occupation of their territory. disproportionate security responses, israeli oppression and so forth. this is where we're at. the grievance in a sense are very old. they're just more retractable now than perhaps they have been in a long time. there's no sense of any negotiation or peace process moving forward from here. there's not even an agreement on both sides as to whether that will make any real difference to the security situation on the ground. so again no real optimism, any sort of talk or negotiations at this very preliminary level at which they're taking place would really have any major impact here, john. >> thank you. phil black live. 8:15 on a wednesday morning
10:15 pm
there in jerusalem. russia's air campaign in sere i can't have as the kremlin presents back home. >> also deep in the norwegian mountains a place that scientists say could save us all from a global crisis. >> it's like out of a movie. >> this is a place to pause and to think. it's a very unique place and important place for humanity. if you can't put a feeling into words, why try? philips sonicare leaves your mouth with a level of clean like you've never felt before, making it the most loved electric toothbrush brand by americans and their dentists. innovation and you. philips sonicare.

10:31 pm
illegal sales and getting around those legal restrictions. we have more on this and ivan, really hong kong is often seen as a weak link globally in so many ways. >> earlier this week, britain's prince william issued a speech in which he warned at the current rates of killing, the wild african elephant could be extinct on the african continent within a generation. and, of course, the poachers are going after that very valuable elephant ivory tusk, which isle illegal to be traded across borders. what many people may not know is that ivory is bought and sold openly here in hundreds of shops, licensed shops in hong kong. a long investigation by a nature conservancy group has concluded with the accusation that at least some of these ivory traders may be involved in smuggling illegal poached ivory.

10:34 pm
cnn, they're also cracking down, seizing 16.7 ftons of smuggled ivory in the last three years and introducing a more sophisticated tracking system to better regulate the sale of legal ivory. but one local lawmaker wants to shut down ivory sales altogether. while we can stop the buy, we can stop the killing, too. >> activists fear the largest living mammal to walk the earth could be extinct within a sen generation. a. >> if we don't stop it fast enough or soon enough, what will happen is you and me have to tell our next generation, our kids they are once upon a time there were elephants on earth. >> say no to ivory! >> some schoolchildren in hong kong have joined the campaign against the ivory trade.
10:35 pm
a hong kong university poll shows a majority of people surveyed here support a ban of ivory sales, but it could take years before such a ban is put in place. precious time for africa's dwindling elephant population. >> john, we reached out to the hong kong government for comment about some of these allegations and received a response from hong kong's agricultural fisheries and sonar is vags department which insisted they've taken serious measures to try to track down on possible smuggling such as conducting a stock check of all licensed ivory in the city, tearing out surprise npgs of licensed ivory shops and introducing a marking system, tamper proof hologram to track ivory. for those, again, who are urging that hong kong impose a complete

10:55 pm
guzman, he was injured in the frantic dash to get away. but he got away, much to government embarrassment. locals describe a less precise military strike with helicopters and gun fire indiscriminately down on homes, vehicles and people. guzman escaped from a mexican maximum security prison last july, literally through the feet, a mile-long tunnel. that isn't out of character. part of his success is the use of tums to smuggle drugs in the united states. there's a reason this search is so focused on this state. it's a place where guzman obviously feels comfortable and where he was arrested before. in a house not that far away from here, and then brought to that high rise beachfront hotel and kept there for a couple of days until they could arrange a transport back to mexico city. authorities believe they're close and the area remains on edge. everyone here knows it is an allout effort to find the man

11:01 pm
east. that is where the u.n. secretary general is preparing to meet with a palestinian authority leader. >> the secretary general is on a visit to rain in the violence between the palestinians and israel israelis. we met with benjamin netanyahu who placed the blame of the unrest squarely on the palestinian leadership. >> it comes in a troubling time. they have been shot, stabbed, even hacked to death. and in large part, this is because they have joined isis and hamas, and claiming that israel threatens. this, mr. secretary, is a total lie. israel vigorous ri protects the holy sites of all things. we keep the status quo. >> in the past few weeks at
11:02 pm
least eight israelis have been killed by palestinians either stabbed or run down by cars. israel has responded with force, killing 45 palestinians. since this most recent outbreak of violence began. >> philback is in jerusalem and joins us live this morning. phil, there has been more violence there with no sign of any kind of resolution to this any time soon. what do we know? >> reporter: well, it's only 9:00 a.m. local time and we've already heard about the first violent incident today. it involved a palestinian who according to israeli officials was approaching an israeli settlement in the west bank. they were apparently carrying a knife. warning shots were fired and ignored. and so this person was shot and we're told juried. but the palestinian volinvolveds
11:03 pm
a 15-year-old girl. there is no sign this recent cycle of violence is drawing to a close. one of the alternatives being this is the new normal in the renal, this that this cycle of regular attacks involving palestinian attacks acting and seeking to harm others with knives and weapons as well, that that will continue on a daily basis while the israeli security crack down continues as well, particularly controlling the movements of palestinians around some of their communities in the east of jerusalem. the other alternative and the u.n. secretary has touched on this in his comments is escalation, where things only get worse and given the powder keg type mood that exists here, at the moment, it's difficult to predict what sort of event or occasion could really trigger
11:04 pm
that, but there is always the sense that that could happen easily here. >> and, phil, the tension, the divide, the lack of trust between israelis and palestinians, it's something that's existed for decades since israel's creation, and not a single negotiated peace plan has reversed any of that or even held, and currently as we've discussed the oh posing sides aren't even talking to one another. with the u.n. secretary general there, though, are there any new ideas being thrown around? any reason for a sliver of optimism? >> reporter: well, i don't think the goals at this stage are quite that ambition. they've talked about having to return to talks for a peace process, but at the moment the focus is in dialing back and stepping back a little, using more language that is certainly dialled back, perhaps less insightful, although both sides
11:05 pm
make the accusation of each other. here on the ground there's little optimism that that sort of effort is going to have any sort of success with the u.s. secretary general trying to ease tensions here. you've also got the u.s. secretary of state in germany with the israeli prime minister. there's expected to be an effort to dial things back there as well. little home. what both sides agree on or believe is that the other is behaving and using language in such a way that only exacerbates this and makes it worse and neither side believes anyone can influence that in the short term. >> and those opinions have existed for some time. five past nine in the morning there. phil black live for us in jerusalem. thanks. we turn now to syria where there's no letup in russian air strikes. the defense ministry reports the strikes hit 60 targets in a 24-hour period after several close encounters in the skies,
11:06 pm
the u.s. and russia have agreed to measures to keep their aircraft safe. we have details of the new protocols. >> reporter: the pentagon agreed to russia's demand not to make public details of the joint agreement on how to prevent u.s. and russian pilots from crashing into each other in the skies over syria. the u.s. is not revealing how vague the agreement is. >> our crews know exactly what a safe distance and the obligation is upon the russians to maintain that safe distance. >> reporter: but cnn leshed it does not specify how far away us and russian aircraft have to stay from each other. >> these protocols include maintaining professional airmanship, the use of specific frequencies and the establishment of a communication line on the ground. >> reporter: if there is an incident, a u.s. pilot will have to call the american command center in qatar.
11:07 pm
but in reality, there may not be time to call. russian pilots have come as close as 500 feet to american jets in recent days. on thursday, a russian aircraft flew within 1500 feet of two u.s. jets. the american pilots tried calling the russians on the radio. no answer. the russians continuing with aircraair strikes, the skies getting more crowded. the russians may not be hostile to american pilots but an air force official tells cnn, the last thing any of us wants is a midair collision, reand that's e biggest concern. >> if there's a collision between aircraft, sometimes it's too late for the aircraft to visually identify each other and move apart. >> reporter: u.s. officials emphasize so far there is no hostile intent from the russians. nobody anticipates a shoot down, but there's still plenty of

october is breast cancer awareness month, and the american cancer society is unveiling new guidelines on breast cancer screenings. >> they now suggest women who are at average risk of breast cancer should start getting mammograms at age 45 instead of age 40. now, that's because the risk of getting a false positive could lead to unnecessary procedures. >> the chances that it's going to save her life is not very significant at all. it's a small decrease in the effectiveness of the mammogram, a big degrease in the bad things about mammograms and the harp harms. >> this is causing a bit of confusion. these new guidelines mean three different medical groups recommend three different ages.
11:43 pm
additionally, the american cancer society guidelines no longer recommend a breast exam. >> breast cancer survivors argue it can save lives. sara fort was 42 when a mammogram detected cancer. >> i was doing self-exams, but it -- i didn't find it. so without the mammogram, it would have been another ten months until they clinical exam. i don't know how long -- how large the tumor might have grown. i mean, i probably would have defect detected it, but i don't know weather cancer cells might have gotten into the lymph nodes and the rest of my body. >> joining me now to talk more about these new guidelines is a fllow at the american college of obstetricians and gynecologists. thank you for being with us.
11:44 pm
now, these new guidelines from the american cancer society are only adding to the confusion for women. and appear to assume breast cancer develops later rather than earlier when we've all seen that early detection has saved women's lives. as a doctor, yourself, what's your reaction to these new guidelines? >> yes. there can be a lot of confusion and frustration. i would even say, not only on behalf of the patients but perhaps from some of the health care providers who are having to go through now and read what the differences are in the guidelines. the most important thing to remember is that these ge guidelines are meant to help women identify early breast cancer, especially those who may be at higher risk. you've got to really read the guidelines and realize that the option is there to continue annual breast exam for women who
11:45 pm
are 40 to 45 years, and women 45 and over, that's where the change of recommendation comes. the american college of on tech stek tricks and gynecology recommend one every two years starting at 40. and a clinical breast exam. that's different. it's important to read through the details, talk to the health care provider and see what is the best screening guidelines for that -- for each woman, and together a joint decision can be made with their health care provider and with that patient. >> yeah. because, of course, the american cancer society is now saying the clinical checkup is not necessary, and that that is totally confusing women. so what is behind the thinking of these new guidelines? why does the american cancer society think that regular manual checks with their doctors are no longer necessary as well
11:46 pm
as mammograms before age 45? >> well, i really can't tell you what the logic was behind what the cancer society is, but i can tell you that the american college of gynecology recommends a clinical breast exam starting at age 19. now, you may say why the difference? well, we're looking at clinical data, clinical evaluations that are actually coming out, really, the progress and the data comes out, but the analysis is done differently. the one thing that i do want to make you aware is come january, there's going to be a consensus meeting where all of these guidelines are going to be reviewed along with the american college of gynecology as well as the u.s. prevent i task force, various key opinion organizations are going to come together to say let's sit down, like you said, this is confusing and can be frustrating for patients as well as providers.

let's sit down and come up with a consensus agreement. and it may be at that point, hopefully, we'll have a better direction for not only providers but more importantly, for women and their families and patience. >> and that is exactly what they need. of course, these are guidelines. as we say, and each indiviual woman has to do what she feels is best for her depending on her risk level. doctor, thank you so much for talking with us. we appreciate it. >> thanks for the opportunity. >> we have a bit of breaking news coming in to cnn. russian media quoted a kremlin spokesman saying bashar al assad flew to moscow on tuesday for talks with vladimir putin. >> the pair discussed the joint military campaign against islamist militants in syria. we'll see if we hear more about that. >> for now we'll take a quick break and be back.

breaking news, syria's president holds talks with president putin during a surprise visit to moscow. >> the u.n. calls for both sides to call back from the brink of catastrop catastrophe. >> a shifting story, joe biden changes his recollection of a key moment in america's war on terror. and the movie trilogy back to the future catches up to the present. a look at what the movie got right. >> hello. a warm welcome to our viewers in the states and those of you watching around the world. i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom." we start this hour with breaking news coming into cnn. there's been a meeting between
12:01 am
president vladimir putin and baa shar haal asaad. reports say they spoke of the fight against, quote, terrorist extremists and support for syria's military. >> matthew chance joins us live from moscow with details. matthew, the source is the kremlin it. we can read into that and say they're not trying to hide anything. what do we know? >> reporter: well, they hid, i suppose the fact that bashar al assad had traveled her last night, it seems. it's now early in the morning, to visit vladimir putin, the russian president. the news of the meeting has only just been broken on state media here in russia. and we're just getting tidbits of information about what was discussed. a few lines coming from the kremlin's spokesman confirming
12:02 am
he was in moscow on tuesday meeting with the russian counter parts, i suppose, vladimir putin, discussing questions, this according to to the kremlin spokesman, questions linked to the continuation of russia's military operation in syria. apparently the syrian president informed vladimir putin about the situation in his country, and of the plans of syrian government troops. now, of course, the troops of bashar al assad alongside iranian forces and fighters of the he is bylaw have been trying to recapture lands taken by rebels over the last several years. that land defensive has been backed by escalating russian air strikes. russia has been playing the air force in that alliance, and it's that campaign that was discussed. they're calling it a campaign
12:03 am
against terrorist groups in syria and the continuation was discussed as well of russian air strikes. but again, a surprise meeting, i suppose, between these two figures central to this sh in syria. >> matthew, we know that russia has had a long relationship with the al asaad family. we'v even before the current president, and we know the two have been in contact during this october campaign with russia's air strikes in syria. why meet in person, do we think? >> reporter: well, i think it underscores the personal bond between the russian state and the asaad dynasty. of course, bashar al assad's father -- since the collapse, the alliance has been somewhat worn thin by the lack of resources on the russian part.
12:04 am
but obviously in recent years russia has been bolstering its military and putting a lot of money into that. it's been made wealthy by oil resources and high prices commanded until recently, and it's taken steps over the past, perhaps, year or so, but particularly over the past two weeks in the intervention in syria to shore up its waning influence in the world. you know, the kremlin regards bashar al assad as its main ally in the middle east, and the main bulwark against the spread of islamic state that got military and islamic ties to syria. they're concerned about violence as well, and this is again, this personal meeting, underlining that russia stands squarely behind its syrian ally. >> matthew chance is live in mosc moscow for us.
12:05 am
10:04 with the news about the meeting between vladimir putin and baa shshar al assad on tues. canada's next prime minister says he'll pull canadian jets out of the fight against syria and iraq. he spoke on the phone with president obama on tuesday. >> he told spoupporters that canada will take a bigger role in humanitarian work around the world. >> i want to say this to this country's friends all around the world. many of you have worried that canada has lost its compassionate and constructive voice in the world over the past ten years. well, i have a simple message for you. on behalf of 35 million canadians, we're back. >> a bit of enthusiasm. they also discussed the environment and trade. >> and the leaders agreed to
12:06 am
generally grow the already close relationship between their two countries. >> the u.n. secretary general is preparing to meet with palestinian leader. it's a surprise visit to the middle east to discuss the spiraling violence in the region. on tuesday he met with the israeli prime minister. >> at least eight israelis have been killed by palestinians either stabbed or run down with cars in the past few weeks. israel ee's response that be forcelful. the secretary general is trying to convince both sides to reign into the bloodshed. netanyahu pinned the violence squarely on palestinian leaders. >> i believe it's time to tell the truth about the causes of palestinian terrorism. it's not the settlements. it's not the peace process. it's the desire to destroy the state of israel, pure and simple. the president has been fanning
12:07 am
the flames. he said on september 16th just a few days ago, that he welcomes, quote, every drop of blood spilled in jerusalem. the chinese and palestinians stand on the brink of another catastrophe period of violence. we need to keep things from escalating into a religious country with regional implications. >> and cnn's phil black is in jerusalem. he joins us now live, and of course, as the diplomatic efforts try out, with the secretary general trying to dial back violence in the region, there's new violence today. what details are coming to light? >> reporter: rose marmary this something we're told a palestinian approached a
12:08 am
settlement carrying a knife. warning shots were fired. they were ignored so this person was shot, shot in the shoulder. the injuries are not serious. but the palestinian involved in this, a 15-year-old girl, according to palestinian officials. and so the cycle continues as it has done for three weeks now. that's how long we've been seeing these random, almost improvised opportunist attacks taking place where palestinians have sought to approach and harm people here. and the response from israeli forces who witness or try to stop the attacks is usually, well, it's pretty lethal. in this case it appears the young girl was injured but not palestinians have been shot either while attempting the attacks or in the immediateafter
12:09 am
math of them. there appears to be in break in the cycling of violence we've been seeing. the security measures are tough, especially around the palestinian community here, and as you heard, the u.n. secretary general there warning there is a concern that while this has become the new normal, these attacks taking place every day, there is always the chance and the real fear that this could escalate further. >> and this is the concern. of course, you mentioned the u.n. secretary general, he has already met with the israeli prime minister. he will meet with the palestinian president. but is there any chance that his pleas will be heard in the midst of all of this? >> it doesn't seem to be a reason to be optimistic about this at the moment. after meeting or around the meeting that the u.n. secretary general had with the israeli prime minister, you heard that
12:10 am
some of the comments a few moments ago, very much sticking to the same, hard line really, in making no doubt about who he holds responsible for this violence. the palestinians themselves who are conducting the attacks but more than that, the palestinian leadership which he says is responsible for inciting this violence, for encouraging it, really, for what he says create, he has described it before as creating this culture of incitement where palestinians are in the views of israelis, trained to hate jews and carry out attacks and be glorified for them. the palestinian views had been hard in their nature and blames what they consider the ongoing oppression and the tough measures that come with that. the positions the grievances are old but very much entrenched. the violence continues and though neither side is optimistic that things are about to improve. what they both believe is that both sides, behaving in ways,
12:11 am
using language that only exacerbates the tension we're seeing. >> and the u.n. chief there trying to dial back violence and in the midst of that, we're reporting more of it. phil black is reporting live from jerusalem. many thanks to you. to another big story. thousands of migrants and refugees, many of them syrians, stranded as they try to make their way to western europe. >> some of those countries are struggling to handle the number of people flooding to their borders. >> reporter: they walked in a long j snaking line from croatia into slo sleen ya. in this group alone, more than 2,000 seeking refuge. with hungary closing borders,
12:12 am
refugees are trying to cross ultimately to germany. slovenia has tried to reduce the number of migrants coming in to just 2500 a day. that is only a portion of those trying to enter. slovenia is now deploying its army and considering building a border fence to regulate the numbers coming. and there are no signs of stopping in macedonia over the weekend, a record 10,000 migrants crossed in from greece, undeterred from rain and mud. many came from syria. >> now, in english, isis, call them isis? yeah. isis came. before the war, just bombs, you know. the same every day, but now that's not the life. >> unhcr were at the scene for
12:13 am
food, aid and counseling, but few wanted to stay. >> we have about fix hours in total. at this time, we're using to provide a little bit of comfort, to counsel them, to talk to them, to get to know their stories and to find out a little bit more about why they're moving and how. >> reporter: instead, most keep moving north to croatia and slovenia hoping to make it to germany before more of europe closes its borders. the intensified battle for the northern city of aleppo has driven tens of thousands of people from their homes. >> we want you to hear this. a representative from a medical aid group gave an emotional first-hand account of the desperate relief efforts and a plea for the world to end this war. listen. >> we can't provide enough food. we can't provide enough
12:14 am
medicine. we can't provide shelter. even if we do so for a small portion, we can't. we can't take it alone. you just see our faces. we haven't slept in days now. it's beyond our capacity. for god sake, we can't take it anymore. no one of us slept for the past four days. we don't know what to do. help us. do something to end this war. i mean, what's wrong? have we done to endure such a bloody, stupid war? it is enough for us, we can't take it anymore. we can't. we can't. so tired. so helpless. i'm sorry, but i can't. i can't. we don't know what to do, for god sake. i swear to god, we are just about to collapse, all of us. >> the emotions are understandable, and you can see
12:15 am
the entire interview. it's well worth your time. it will air on amanpour at 10:00 a.m. for those of you in london. >> when we come back, a big question is looming in u.s. politics. will joe biden run for president? we'll have the latest on a possible white house bid. >> and he's eluded authorities for more than authorities. now mexican officials say they're close to recapturing the country's most wanted drug king pen, elle chaup poe.

welcome back to sh"cnn newsroo newsroom". we are getting our first images of a surprise one on one meeting between the russian and syrian presidents. the first time we're getting a glimpse at this video. russian state media report, bashar al assad flew into moscoo for talks with vladimir putin on tuesday. you see them here having a conversation. reports say the pair discussed the joint military campaign against militants in syria. we'll continue to gather more details on this meeting as they become available. we need to move from an
12:20 am
opposition party to being a proposition party. because we think the nation is on the wrong path, we have a duty to show the right one. our next speaker has to be a visionary one. >> all right. well, a congressman of the republican -- just a small technical issue, rosemary, with your microphone. we'll pick it up. that's paul ryan wanting to be speaker of the house. it will only happen if he gets support from three different republican groups. we know he's 45, he represents the district in wisconsin. he may remember in 2012 he was tested on the national stage when he was tapped to be republican presidential candidate mitt romney's running mate. that campaign failed. ryan says he currently has his
12:21 am
dream job as the chairman of the house ways and means committee where he's been trying to overhaul the tax code. despite that resume, ryan may not necessarily be able to unify the divided house of representatives, one said. >> paul ryan is a good choice. he's a good temperament. he has youth on his side. he's a relatively good messen r messenger. he's adept at taking something policy wise, and presenting it in layman's terms, and he's been groomed by john boehner and he has the approval of what grass roots would call the establish. . that being said, they're concerned about his past. the he supported tarp and medicare part d, and the company with whom he's kept.
12:22 am
while john boehner has been the face, it's been paul ryan that's been the planner behind the scenes. >> and ryan says he will make his final decision to run for speaker within the week. and he is getting some unexpected support from senate minority leader, harry reid, a democrat who is incredibly unpopular among republicans. >> now to the republican presidential race. a poll shows two candidates way in the lead. donald trump has 27% support. ben carson is close behind at 22%. carly fiorina who surged to 15% after the republican presidential debates in september dropped 11% points to just 4 %. >> republicans are loving their outsiders right now. >> meanwhile on the democrats said, speculation is growing over whether joe biden will one
12:23 am
for president. even though he hasn't announced his decision, a campaign of sorts as begun around hillary clinton. >> reporter: joe biden spent the day reminding people he's one heart bee away from the presidency. >> the best decision was to join the president. >> reporter: flexing his vice president shl muscles like rarely before. even invoking the killing of osama bin laden. >> there were two people who were definitive and certain. leon panetta said go, and bob gates who has said this said don't go. >> reporter: old disagreements from the situation room would flair up in a potential democrat presidential race. >> as we walked upstairs, i told him my opinion. and i thought he should go but follow his own intingts. >> reporter: making clear he had
12:24 am
the last word with the president, not the secretary of state, clinton, who has said she advised the president to authorize the high stakes raid. >> i was the one who recommended to the president that he go ahead, and his advisors were split, because the it was a risky operation. >> reporter: biden didn't stop there. he said he had a hand in every decision, even choosing clinton as secretary of state. >> reporter: the president said you have veto right on anybody in this cabinet. >> reporter: for biden time is running short. he has deadlines in alabama and texas and georgia. me polls show biden in a distant third, and more democrats say he shouldn't run. his campaign in waiting roars on. he said again today he doesn't believe republicans are always the bad guys. i don't think my chief enemy is the republican party. this is a matter of making
12:25 am
things work. >> reporter: a not so subtle jab at that moment when hillary clinton was asked to name her enemies. >> in addition to the nra, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the iranians, probably the republicans. >> cnn, washington. cnn political analyst, josh rogen joins us now from d.c. to talk about all the big headlines in politics. josh, great to see you once again. before we talk about biden, let's talk late night surprise in d.c. representative paul ryan saying he's willing to serve as house speaker for the republicans. that would put him second in line as far as succession is concerned. how was he convinced to take what's described as the worst job in washington. >> after meeting with house
12:26 am
conservatives, paul ryan gave a press conference moments ago here in washington where he said that he would run for the job if and only if several conditions were met h. he said he has to have weekends to spend time with his family. he said the caucus has to be unified which is code for no more challenges to his leadership if and when he gets the job, and he said he wants to rules changed to he won't fight for his job six months down the line. what convinced him was the prospect that the republican party might not be able to solve this leadership crisis without him. he felt obligated to step up to the step. he's giving until the end of the week to see if they can live with his conditions. >> whoever takes over has to link the right wing and the moderates. as we look at biden, it appears
12:27 am
as though he's prepping to run on president obama's record, kind of creating elbow room between his own and hillary clinton's positions. at this stage, is there any way he's not running in your view? >> anything can happen. until he announces it, he can always reverse what sources close to him say he's leaning toward a run. we see in his public statement, increasingly, him not only placing distance between himself and hillary clinton but also tieing himself to president obamaqgfs2 president obama's record. today quite shockingly, he reversed his previous story about whether or not he supported the raids that eventually killed osama bin laden. previously he said he was not in favor of the raid. now he says, according to his latest version, that he did support the raid in a private meeting with obama that no one else was at. >> another people are seeing it as him fudging around the edges
12:28 am
to make his point. finally for you. donald trump tops yet another cn n orc poll. 27 % of those polled want them as his nominee, this is among republicans. he's changed positions. should establishment republicans be worried by now at the very least? >> not only should they. they are worried. increasingly worried. that was fascinating about that poll was that while trump's support levelled out, t not going much higher or lower. establishment party candidates are going down. including jeb bush. so that's an overall bad signal for that part of the party. these fights, especially the fight between bush and trump over what happened before 9/11, really only hurts jeb bush. whoever is voting for trump or likes trump has factored in the fact that he doesn't know policy well, that he says crazy stuff and gets into these brawls with the other candidates. those kinds of incidents really
12:29 am
don't hurt him. but they do hurt who he's fighting against. >> and we're more than a year away from election day. so much can happen between now and then. josh rogen, joining us from d.c. >> any time. another story we're following. a new york police officer is dead after an exchange of gunfire with a suspect in east harlem. 33-year-old randolph holder and his partner were responding to reports of gunshots when holder was shot in the head. a suspect was later arrested and treated for gunshot wounds to his leg. holder was a native of gaughfiv of the police department. >> and what could save us from a global crisis in we'll take you deep inside the norwegian mountains, next.

12:33 am
we appreciate you staying with us. welcome back to those of you watching here in the states and all around the world, this is "cnn newsroom" and i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. here are the main stories we've been following. vladimir putin and bashar al assad held a face to face meeting tuesday to discuss the military campaign in syria. russian state media report asaad flew into moscow for the meeting. this comes as russia has carried now numerous air strikes in the country with a ramped up offensive in aleppo. >> and the canada's new prime minister spoke on the phone with
12:34 am
barack obama. they agreed to deepen their strong ties but mr. trudeau also made it clear he will pull canadian jets out of the fight against isis and iraq and syria. >> and a surprise visit to the middle east imploring to stop the violence. on tuesday, the u.n. leader met with the israeli prime minister. a snowy forfresz in norway may seem like an odd choice for the largest collection of crops on earth, but that is exactly where the world has placed the seed samples and faith. arwa damon paid a visit. >> reporter: glittering, like an exotic gem in the distance.
12:35 am
the entrance to the small seed vault extends out of the side of an arctic mountain, looking more like a villain's lair than where humanity has banked the seeds of its survival. we walk into a long cement forebodiing hallway. protection lines the wall against falling ice. >> that's about 150 meters down into the mountain. this is the frost here in granite. >> reporter: the crop the u.s. overseeing the vault guides us deeper into the mountain with each step, the temperature drops. >> it's like something out of a movie. >> it is like a holy place. every time i come here, i feel like i'm in a cathedral. this is a place to pause and think. it's a very unique place, and it's an important place for humanity. >> this is so beautiful.
12:36 am
>> reporter: and yet, it's so simple. it's just a door, but behind it is the key to humanity's salvation. there are 860,000 types of seeds from all over the world here. >> you get boxes from nigeria, the united states, that's an interesting box right here. this box comes from the democratic ñmmr0wpeople's repub of korea. the only wooden boxes in the vault. >> reporter: this is humanity's insurance policy meant to safeguard against events that wipe out our crops. despite multiple conflicts around the world, they say that's not what will bring about our demise. >> the agriculture is not ada adapting as fast currently as the climate is changing on us. we have to adapt to rising temperatures, so wind and storm and flooding. new diseases and pests, we have
12:37 am
salt water coming into the rice patties in the field. these tolerances to those issues are found here. this is the diversity of the jea genes that you're going to use to adapt agriculture, and you don't know what you're going to know 50 or 100 or 500 years from now. >> reporter: even if power goes out, the vault can preserve these seeds for decades. in the race against climate change, protecting our past may be the only way to ensure our future. arwa damon, cnn, norway. well, as we've been reporting, the leaders of russia and syria have held a face to face meeting to discuss their joint military campaign. russian state media report president bashar al assad flew into moscow for talks with vladimir putin. matthew chance joins us from moscow with the latest on this.
12:38 am
matthew, let's talk about the significance of this face to face meeting between two leaders at this particular time. what might this signal? >> reporter: well, i think it's pretty significant in the sense that this is believed to be the first time since the outbreak of the syrian crisis in 2011 that bashar al assad, the syrian president has made a foreign trip, and that trip is to the kremlin. russia has been providing air support and air strikes, carrying them out against anti-regime opposition rebels inside syria with some considerable effect. there are counter offensives on the way involving others as well which apparently are making progress against the rebels on the ground. and, you know, this face to face meeting underscoring the
