11:01 pm
their return from a holiday was not supposed to be so grim. the bodies of 144 people who died when their plane crashed in the sinai peninsula have just arrived in st. petersburg. it was supposed to be the final destination of a flight when it went down saturday. investigators are still trying to figure out just what went wrong on the russian airliner. officials now believe the plane broke apart in midair, but they don't know why. for the latest, we'll turn to nick robertson who is in st. petersburg. nick, 25 children lost on this flight as well as parents on vacation without their children. it is a tragedy that has touched the whole nation. what more are we learns about
11:02 pm
the loved ones on board? >> reporter: well, the youngest, darena was 10 months. she was on vacation with her parents. there's a picture of her looking out onto the tarmac where there's a plane on the runway. it's become symbolic for so many russians about the loss of so many children, 25 on board. we're told there were a lot of parents on board. many had gone off leavin younger children with holiday. the feeling is there are now a lot of orphans here. at the moment, however, it is the beginning of the very grim and difficult task for the families here. they are being taken from a hotel near the airport where they've been for the past two days. if t the government officials are taking them where the 144
11:03 pm
bodies are being transported to right now. they will be able to identify their loved ones. in the last hour or so, a press conference by the emergency ministry here, nothing specific on the investigation so far, but they do say in the early hours of tuesday morning, they're expecting another plane to arrive back here from egypt, bring manager bodiy more bodies personal effects of the passengers. today is going to be, for the families, a tough day. as we're watching here, people are coming to leave flowers and coming to leave toys at this memorial, also finding it difficult. a lot of tears here this morning as well. >> it is a heart breaking situation and difficult to understand how the loved ones are coping at this time. as we mentioned, officials now believe the plane broke apart midair. they don't know why.
11:04 pm
but a russian authority doubt that terrorism is behind this. how can they be so sure at this early stage? >> reporter: well, at the moment they're pointing to what is being said by egyptian authorities. the egyptians have the lead on the investigation. president cc has promised president puten the the widest engagement for russian investigators alongside egyptians. the transport minister who is the head of the newly appointed commission to investigate this air tragedy as well as the aviation ministers have all been to egypt. the transport minister and the emergency ministers are on their way back. you had high senior russian delegation in egypt working with counter parts there. this seems to be why the russians are willing to believe at this stage without a full investigation so far that they can put faith in what the egyptian authorities are saying,
11:05 pm
that the plane did disintegrate, but at the moment, the word from egyptians is that they don't believe that it was shot down, and for the russian authorities, that seems to be enough, although, they're cautioning, obviously, until we get done with the investigation, it cannot be said definitive tly wt happened. >> it is a nation in shock right now. what sort of support is being given to the loved ones of those who were lost on this plane? >> reporter: psychologists have been appointed and are in the hotel with the families. we're told 65 psychologists are with the families. we met one over the weekend. she was describing how difficult the it was for her, a trained professional, dealing with sudden loss to sudden grief. the lack of information, the
11:06 pm
psychologist dealing with that, we're told over the weekend that at least 100 of the families, people from the families availed themselves of this help. also medical professionals have been on hand for the families on their saturday night into sunday. the sort of first real night of realization for the families that they weren't going to see their loved ones again. 24 balances were called to the hospital to give medical help to those families. we see them inside the hotel where they're staying. it's, clearly, common sense tells us, but clearly when you see these families, how grief stricken they are and how deep in a desperate situation they find themselves at the moment. >> and sadly, we have watch third down play out a number of times. just in recent month,months, in. we want to go to ian lee who is in cairo and outside the morgue
11:07 pm
there. this is a grim and tragic situation to cover, for sure, ian, but talk to us about the latest on the search and recovery effort and word there, even though the it is very early at this point on the investigation. >> reporter: you're right. i'm outside of the morgue here in central cairo, and 144 bodies have gone to russia, but there are still some left here at this morgue. 187 bodies have been recovered which means that over 30 bodies are still out there in the desert. they have yet to be recovered. that is a process that is going on right now, looking for the remains. also looking for any clues that could lead to why this plane crashed. there's a lot of debris out there. it's over an area of 20 square kilometers. you have the russians out there with the egyptians. we know that a team from air bus
11:08 pm
is also in egypt and later today an irish team will be on the ground, helping the the egyptians through this. those black boxes are in cairo. now we heard from richard quest who said that he was unsure that egypt would have the ability, the technical abilities to decipher these black boxes. that could be why the irish has been brought in. they're going to be trying to figure out the moment right before the plane disappeared from radar, and what happened afterward. we heard from the russians that the plane had broken apart in mid flight and there was some talk that there was a problem with the plane before it took off. we heard this from the co-pilot's ex-wife. take a listen. >> my daughter had a telephone chat with him just before the flight. he complained that one could wish for better technical
11:09 pm
condition of the plane. >> rosemary, this plane passed its routine checkup right before it took off. the pilot didn't complain of anything, so there are a lot of questions, and, really, i think we need to stress, we do not know what caused this plane to crash. >> we do not know, but, of course, the area in which this plane passed over, let's talk about that. you mentioned the difficulties in gathering the degree and really working toward the investigation here, but also talk to us about the dangers flying over this area, sinai. >> reporter: well, isis has come out and claimed responsibility for bringing down the plane. now, in the past they have also come out with other details to back up their claims. we haven't seen any of this. only that isis in the sinai peninsula saying that they
11:10 pm
brought down this plane. now, how they would do that is also being raised, because they technically just do not have the fire power to launch a missile or the ability to do it to bring down a plane that's traveling over 30,000 feet. so a lot of people are thinking this is just isis trying to be opportunistic. there are other ways they could have done it. and these are things that investigators are going to be looking into, potentially, was a bomb on board? we don't know, and these are things that investigators, like i said, will be looking into. but this part of sinai, the north central part, we've seen isis in that area. they have -- when they were sending rescue crews there, that's something that they would be looking and thinking about. right now it's a huge security area, military everywhere. it is a safe area right now for the rescue teams. >> all right. our ian lee reporting there from the cairo outside the morgue
11:11 pm
there. many thanks to you. al qaeda's leader is calling on muslim supporters to unite against the west and russia in syria and iraq. the it's not the first time he's pushed for more unity between al qaeda and isis. he says a unified front is crucial to fight against what he calls the satanic alliance that is aggressing against islam. >> translator: the americans, russians, iranians, and hezbollah are coordinating their war against us. are we not capable of stop the fighting amongst ourself so we can go against them. >> the references to russia suggested it was made after the air raids in syria in late
11:12 pm
september by russia. according to the syrian observatory for human rights, the group says some 50 regime fighters were killed or wounded. the takeover means the militants are just 20 kilometers, or 13 miles from the highway connecting the capital, damascus with other main cities. syrian state media have not reported the attack. some syrian rebels are being accused of putting captives in metal cages and using them as human shields in an athe tempt to stop government air raids. a video posted online by an opposition media outlet, appears to show these people on cages being driven in the back of pickup trucks. we haven't been able to verify the footage. they say residents told them the human shields were military

officers and their families. u.s. forces are intensifying air strikes ahead of a planned ground offensive to retake a plan. when militants took over a year ago, they killed hundreds of the yazidi religious minority and forced thousands more to flee. now yazidi men are part of a group hoping to drive isis out. we met some of those men and have this exclusive report. >> reporter: the yazidi, volunteers, former soldiers, and a hand full of trained officers, looking out over the isis front line. he's pointing at us. all along here you can see the defensive ditches that have been dug. he said they come as close as that valley. they mortar and fire on us and eventually retreat. it's pretty never ending.
11:14 pm
this vantage point was in the not too distant past, isis-held. just there he said you can see what they did to the yazidis. the houses are completely destr destroyed. they slaughtered the families inside. it drives home how visceral this was. the department commander is 66. he's a retired soldier, one of the few here with fighting experience. this is a fragment of skull they found. this patch of ground is mass graves. said they found about 150 bodies from children as young as one all the way up to 80. it is, they say, just a reminder to them of what it is they're fighting for. they're fighting for their very survival. the massacre of thousands of yazidi men, women, and children
11:15 pm
by isis last year, resonated around the world. here in the foothills of the mountain, thousands of yazidi volunteers are joining up to fight. the it is at the heart of the homeland of the yazidi minority. it falls along a crucial supply route, linking isis strongholds in iraq and syria. when isis took the city august last year, their intent was to drive the yazidis to extinction. those who manage to escape the ensuing massacre now shelter on barren slopes overlooking their former homes. these are the families of the fighters standing guard down below. this is what they're fighting for. at the front, a poem is being
11:16 pm
recited. it speaks of lost honor, slaughtered wives and sisters, empty homes. it's meant to remind the soldiers of what's at stake. they tell us they know only too well, this is a battle for their very existence. cnn mt. sin jar. still to come a stunning outcome in turkey's snap elections as the country's president and his party mounted a strong and unexpected comeback. plus a new lawsuit has been filed over the missing cargo ship, but it isn't from the families of the missing crew. find out how went to court and why. we're back in a moment.

11:21 pm
prime minister is urging turkey's political parties to work together. the win will likely help him tighten his grip on power, saying the vote was a victory for stability in the wake of last month's suicide bombing that killed more than 100 people. a tropical cyclone is threatening yemen, with rare winds and rainfall. it's thought to hit land tuesday. the country may see more than a year's worth of rainfall in just a couple of days. it could hit right in the heart of al qaeda territory, an area wrecked by civil war. we want to get the latest on this unusually powerful storm. our meteorologist joins us toexplain how bad this would be. >> the worst is definitely going to be along the coast, and more specifically in yemen because of the track it's going to take.
11:22 pm
it's going to veer much more so towards yemen. that's where it will make land fall. we can't emphasize how strong the storm is. second strongest tropical cyclone recorded in the arabian sea. maximum winds, 270 kilometers per hour. you compare that to this of 250, they aren't that much differences between the two. the main differences are where they impacted. the other was more uae and amen. this one, here you can see the current satellite and radar. winds up around 195 kilometers per hour, gusting up to 240 kilometers per hour. it is basically going to make land fall likely monday night into early hours on tuesday, local time.
11:23 pm
here is a look at the trek. notice as it begins to slide up, it weakens quickly from 140 kilometers per hour down to 55 in just less than 24 hours. the reason for that is going to be the incredibly dry air. here's the moisture. notice it really doesn't make much into saudi arabia. most of the moisture stays in yemen. it's this dry air that is going to be pushed down into the air, that dry desert. also the elevation. there is very high mountainous ranges along the coast of yemen that's going to help break the storm apart. this particular storm could become the strongest storm on record in the arabian sea. certainly the strongest to hit yemen. the strongest one previously was in 2007. yemen is going to see an incredible amount of rain. they average about 80 to 100 millimeters a year. they're going to pick up 200 to
11:24 pm
250 millimeters in just 24 hours. tremendous. the impacts from flooding and possibly mud slides, especially in the higher terrains is going to be a possibility. >> just the need to absorb that amount of moisture, it's just not possible is it? >> no. >> all right. alison, thanks many thanks. the u.s. national transportation safety board will try to recover bodies from the reck damawrecka believed to be the el faro ship. the ntsb says it doesn't intend to recover the ship. the el faro went missing on october 1st near the bahamas during a hurricane. the company that owns the ship has filed a lawsuit to keep families of the crew members from suing. four families have already filed suits claiming the company has a history of pour maintenance.

"spectre" opens in the u.s. on friday. >> and kim joins us to talk more about all of this. so, kim, let's start with the weekend box office. lots of smiles in the uk with the new bond movie. it was a great success. no so much good news in the u.s. with its worst halloween box office in 16 years. >> it was a scary halloween reason at the box office. really did not do well. the worst weekend of the year
11:53 pm
and the worst halloween weekend in 16 years. that's surprising, because two of the movies that opened were a sandra bullock and bradley cooper movie. and both of these underperformed by a lot. bradley cooper's film made 2 million less than expected. sandra bullock's made less than half of what was expected. the marsha the there might be too many movies out there right now, and not looking good -- sandra bullock got so much publicity. >> strange for those two stars. bullock is looking to continue this trend of gender swapping. that's what happened with that last movie you just talked about. she's got plan to take on george
11:54 pm
clooney's role, and we're hearing about who might join her. >> the gender swapping trend is being talked about everywhere. and the all female ghost busters. there was even talk about another james bond who was female. not so much. "spectre" is doing well this. she's taking on george clooney's role in the oceans 11 reboot. the first thing coming up is jennifer lawrence because gary ross is directing knit. you think about the wade array of actors who have to be replaced, older, younger. there's going to be some amazing female ai list actresses in this production. >> and let's fin wishish with a

>> russia demands in the crash of a flight as the first victims arrive back in st. petersburg. plus, preparing for an assault on isis. how yazidi forces are getting ready to do battle with the group that forced them to flee their homes a year ago. and later, the spect"spectr millions. the latest movie stirs fans and takes up the box office records raking it in for the uk opening weekend. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom."
12:01 am
>> a tragic homecoming is playing out in russia. 144 bodies out of the 224 people who died in an air crash saturday arrived back in st. petersburg. another group of bodies is expected to arrive there later in the day. meanwhile, investigators in egypt now believe metro jet flight 9268 broke apart well before hitting the ground in the sinai peninsula, but they don't know what caused the break up. the flight was filled with russians heading home from ta r town. for the latest we want to turn to ian lee and nick robertson. nick, i want to start with you. of course, as we've been reporting, bodies being flown back to st. petersburg. we know 25 children were lost on
12:02 am
this flight as well as many parents who were on vacation who have left many orphans now. it is a tragedy that's touched the whole nation. what do we know about those who were on board? >> reporter: well, rosemary, every minute here you witness the tragedy of people like this coming to pay their respects coming and going from the airport. a whole football team arrived here earlier to lay flowers. of course, the emotions they're going through and the people standing here right now, looking, saying prayers, coming to remember all those victims on board the plane, the 25 children, as you say, so many parents. people we've talked to here this afternoon have told us while they can begin to try to understand what happened in this tragedy, they can't begin to feel the pain of the families and for those families of the victims today, this is the day that it will, perhaps, become very real and very tough.
12:03 am
the bodies of 144 bodies that arrived at the airport in the early morning hours have been driven to a creme trem tore yum. psychologists are on hand to help the families. balances are on hand. medical personnel are on hand to help the families but they will be taken to see the bodies today to begin to identify their loved ones. this is going to be, perhaps, a long and very, very difficult process. more bodies will arrive back, we're told, later tonight. personal possessions will also come back on a flight overnight tonight, but this is the day, really, that a lot of people here are feeling the pain of the families and such a tough day for the families ahead. >> it is. and ian lee, we don't know what caused this plane crash, but there are numerous questions about the airworthiness of this aircraft. what is the latest on the search and recovery effort, and on the
12:04 am
investigation? >> reporter: well, i'm outside the main morgue here in cairo where bodies are still being stored. we had those 144 go to st. petersburg. 187 bodies now have been recovered. there's still 30 bodies out there in the desert waiting to be recovered. crews are still out there searching not only for the bodies but trying to search for clues. this is a large area. this is about 20 square kilometers that they're going over and looking for evidence, and we've seen in some of this video that as the very rugged area, also you're seeing pieces scattered everywhere. what we heard from a russian official is that it did break apart in the air. now, what caused that is still unknown. we do know that this plane had an incident in cairo in 2001
12:05 am
where the tail hit the runway. whoa don't know if that would have played into it at all. it's like li lie likely the pla would have been repaired and inspected. there's a lot of worthiness about the this plane. >> our daughter chatted with him before the flight. he complained before the flight that one could wish for better technical condition of the plane. >> rosemary, we know according to the civil aviation minister this plane was inspected before it flew. we also know that the pilot didn't complain of any technical problems. the egyptian government said if those were brought up, that they would have looked into them and tried to fix them. there are a lot of questions about the moments that led up to this crash, this tragedy. we know the black boxes are in cairo right now. they're going to be analyzed.
12:06 am
there's a team from air bus here as well as a team from ireland that will be helping aiding in this investigation. >> and nick robertson, if we can go back to you very quickly in st. petersburg. of course, as we've been mentioning, we understand that the airport broke apart midair. we don't know why. that is the critical question. according to russian authorities, they doubt that terrorism is behind this, and this is despite isis claiming responsibility for shooting the plane down. talk to us about that. >> reporter: yeah. the russian authorities are basing their analysis at the moment on what they're hearing from the egyptian authorities. we are being cautioned here that by russian officials that we shouldn't, you know, we can't say definitively what it is until the investigation is complete, and we're still a long way from that process, but it does seem that russian seems
12:07 am
reasonably confident a the moment that it wasn't a result of the aircraft being shot down. that said, several russian airlines have now announced they're going to avoid flying over the sinai area in egypt. what officials here are doing with the egyptians according to the president of egypt in a phone conversation with president putin here is that they're working very closely on this investigation. you've had the head of the transport ministry in egypt, the head of the emergency ministry in egypt, the head of the aviation ministry all in egypt. that's to build this strong connection. i think when we hear from russian officials and say they the best information they have says it's not a result of the terrorist, that's in close. the observations are based on what they're hearing from egyptian authorities, but the
12:08 am
caution that it cannot be ruled out until the investigation is complete. >> understood, and ian, finally, back to you. clearly people want answers and they want them fast. how difficult is this investigation likely to be, and very quickly, how dangerous is the sinai peninsula? >> reporter: well, this investigation, you have this plane in an area of 20 square kilometers. the benefits that the egyptians have is they know where the area the plane has crashed. while it is an islamist insurgency in the north, the area has been secured so the investigators can get to the pieces. from that aspect, it should be straightforward. we don't know the condition of the black boxes. will they be able to tell everything from what was being said in the cockpit and all the data from the instruments? that is to be seen. so really depending on that, but
12:09 am
as nick said, you know, egyptian fish officials are saying they shouldn't jump to any conclusions that terrorists were involved. a military source told cnn it is unlikely, as far as a missile is concerned, it's nearly impossible for the militants to shoot down a plane at 30,000 feet. they don't have the technology or the weapons to do so. there has been the theory that potentially a bomb was on there, but i think we need to reiterate that we don't know, and right now that is important, and the egyptians are saying that it is more likely a technical issue. >> right. it is way too early to know for sure. nick robertson reporting from st. petersburg, and ian lee in cairo. al qaeda's leader is calling on muslim supporters to unite against russia.
12:10 am
it's not the first time he's pushed for unity between al qaeda and isis. he says a unified front is crucial to fight against what he calls the satanic alliance that is aggressing against islam. >> translator: the americans, russians, iranians, and hezbollah are coordinating their war against us. are we not capable of fighting amongst ourselves who fight against them. >> they suggest it was made after moscow began air raids in late send. isis has seized another down according to the syrian observatory for human rights. they say some 50 regime fighters were killed or wounded. the militants are just 20
12:11 am
kilometers or about 13 miles from the highway connecting the capital with other main cities. syrian state media have not reported the attack. u.s. forces are intensifying air strikes against the isis stronghold of sinja in iraq. when militants took over a year ago, they killed hundreds of the yazidi religious minority and forced thousands more to flee. well, now yazidi men are part of a group hoping to drive isis out. cnn met some of the men and has this exclusive report. >> translator: the yazidi peshmerga, former soldiers, volunteers, and a hand full of trained officers look out over the isis front line. he's pointing at us. all along here you can see the defensive ditches that have been
12:12 am
dug. he said they come as close as they valley just there. they mortar and fire on us. they eventually retreat, but it's pretty never ending. this vantage point itself was in the not too distant past, isis held. just there, he said you can see what they did to the yazidis, that the houses are completely destroyed. they slaughtered all the families inside it. really drives home how visceral this was. the deputy commander is of 66. he's a retired soldier. one of the few here with fighting experience. this is a fragment of skull they found. this whole patch of ground is mass graves. they found about 150 bodies from children as young as one all the way up to 80. it is, they say, just a reminder
12:13 am
to them of what it is they're fighting for. they're fighting for their very survival. the massacre of thousands of yazidi men, women, and children by isis last year resonated around the world. here in the foothills of the mountain, thousands of yazidi volunteers are joining up to fight. sinjar city is at the heart of the homeland of the yazidi minority. it links isis strongholds in iraq and syria. when isis took the city august of last year, their intent was to drive the yazidis to extinction. those who managed to escape the ensuing massacre now shelter up in tents on barren slopes overlooking their former homes. these are the families of the fighters standing guard down
12:14 am
below. this is what they're fighting for. at the front, a poem is being recited. it speaks of lost honor, slaughtered wives and sisters, empty homes. it's meant to remind the soldiers of what's at stake. they tell us they know only too well, this is a battle for their very existence. cnn, mt. sinjar. >> we'll take a short break right here. still to come, a surprise result for turkey's president as his party stages a major comeback in sunday's snap elections. plus, a rare and powerful tropical storm racing toward yemen. we'll explain why this cyclone could be especially devastating for the region. need to hire fast?

12:18 am
in a stunning electoral
12:19 am
victory, the party lost a majority in june but now the country's prime minister is urging turkey's political parties to work together. earlier cnn spoke with a columnist from the turkish website and asked him if he believes the country's polarization will continue after this unexpected outcome. >> that depends on the course that the prime minister and the president will follow. they've now won a major victory. i hope that they will feel safe about all the conspiracies they believe that are targeting them and maybe they can have a reconciliati reconciliation. they said they're planting love and tall rans and understanding. that's great if that message stays. but polarization is deep, and they should reach out to the enemies within, as they call
12:20 am
them. >> the win will likely help the president titan his grip on power, saying it was a victory for stability. >> an unusually powerful cyclone is expected to weaken some but still, the region doesn't often deal with rain and wind like this. the storm could hit right in the heart of al qaeda territory, an area wrecked by civil war. our meteorologist joins us to talk more about this unusual storm. and, of course, people in that region, they want to know how badly likely to be. >> for all the folks living there along the coastline, which is not that many in terms of the population of yemen in general, but all of those folks living along the coastline will be hit the hardest. but t also the ships. there's a lot of ships that go
12:21 am
back and forth in that area that will be affected by this storm. it's not any weak storm to talk about this. s in the second strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded in the arabian sea. impressive. take a look at this. winds up around 195 kilometers per hour as it barrels toward yemen. we're talking about the ships in this area. alone, about 4 00 ships in the red sea they have to deal with and they'll all be affected once this storm makes its way crossing into yemen. it should make land fall sometime monday night into early tuesday morning local time. now, notice how quickly this storm weakens. it goes from 140 kilometers per hour right beforehand fall to about 55 kilometers in less than 24 hours, but in that time span, it's going to do a lot of damage. here is the satellite estimate as it begins to move up, it weakens quickly.
12:22 am
once it crosses out of yemen, there's not much left. we also have the mountain range that sits along the yemen coast as well. that is going to start drying and pulling out the moisture from that storm. the combination of the two really is going to decrease the storm quickly. that is very good news. but it still could become the strongest storm on record in the arabian sea. the previous was in 2007. the big issue for a lot of folks in yemen is going to be the rainfall. normally they average 100 millimeters of rain in one year. they're likely to get 200 to 250 millimeters of rain in the first 24 hours. here's a look at that again. mostly focussed in the central region where we expect to get the majority of the rain. winds will also be a factor as well, and some storm surges along the coast. you hope and pray that these folks can protect themselves and get out of harm's way and go
12:23 am
further inlantd. >> the amount of water that you're talking about is extraordinary. >> incredible. >> and, of course, the ground cannot absorb. >> the dry ground can't. that's why the flooding potential is high and also the threat for mud slides. >> thanks for the heads up. appreciate it. in the united states there's a revolt underway among the republican candidates for president and it's a revolt against their own party. representatives from all the campaigns huddled in washington sunday night to decide on new rules for future presidential candidate debates. and they shut out leaders from the republican national committee. the contenders are especially angry over last week's debate hosted by cnbc. they say it lacked substance and was filled with gotcha
12:24 am
questions. key questions agreed to are two hour debates. and equal speaking time. they failed to agree on having all candidates on the main debate stage or splitting into random groupings. they plan to send their demands to networks this week without input from the republican national committee. paul ryan is getting set to tackle the challenges that will come with his new job as speaker of the house. the man who held that position until friday, john boehner, announced he was quitting after seeing the party become more and more fractured. he told cnn's dana dash, it took some convincing to get ryan to run for speaker. >> let's talk about paul ryan. you successfully tried to convince him to run. whoo what did you say?
12:25 am
>> first i laid every ounce of catholic guilt i could on him. >> reporter: how does that go? i want to know what that feels like? >> you have no choice. this isn't about what you want to do. this is about what god wants to do. and -- >> reporter: you pulled that out? >> i pulled it all out. paul was the right guy at the right time. he didn't want to do it. he kept telling me he didn't want to do it, but the it was obvious to me that he was the right person for the job. and i had to do everything i could to convince him. >> and as for paul ryan, he says he feels good about his decision even though it could spell the end of any presidential ambitions he may have. listen. >> reporter: do you think this means the end of the road for any hope of being president? >> oh, hope of being president? >> reporter: meaning when you're speaker of the house. >> that's okay with me. that doesn't bother me.
12:26 am
if i really wanted to be president, i would have run in this cycle. i had an opportunity to do so. i chose not to do that. so i'm perfectly content with this decision. and to sad news. former u.s. senator and actor fred thomps has died. his family said he lost a decade long battle with lymphoma. he was a republican to represented the state of tennessee for nearly the ten years in the senate. he also briefly campaigned for president in 2008. thompson was also known for his long running role in law and order in fact he was 73. just ahead, investigators reach some conclusions about the crash of a russian airliner in egypt. but they're still struggling to figure out exactly what brought the plane down. plus -- >> no survivors. that meant my little girl was
12:27 am
gone. >> a mother's anguish at losing her daughter after a cargo ship vanished. her emotional story, straight ahead.
12:28 am
12:29 am
12:30 am
welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. we want to update you on the main stories we've been following this hour. u.s. forces are intensifying air strikes in sinjar to retake the town. when isis took over, hundreds of yazidis were killed and thousands of others ran for their lives. now yazidi men have joined the
12:31 am
battle to drive isis out. turkey's president is calling for unity after his justice and development party secured an outright majority in sunday's snap election. the prime minister called the it a victory. after losing the majority in june. the majority of the passengers from metro jet flight 268 have arrived back in russia. 224 people, mostly russians on holiday, died when their airliner crashed on saturday. more bodies are expected to arrive in russia later in the day. the u.s. national transportation safety board will try to recover bodies from the wreckage believed to be the el faro cargo ship. there was a plan to send a deep ocean vehicle to the wreckage on sunday, but the ntsb says it
12:32 am
doesn't intend to recover the ship. the el faro went missing on october 1st, near the bahamas during a hurricane. the company that owns the ship has filed a lawsuit to keep families of the crew members from suing. four families have already filed suits claiming the company has a history of pour maintenance. the mother of one crew member says she cries every night thinking of her lost daughter and says knowing the wreckage may have been found isn't bringing her comfort. an affiliate from boston massachusetts has more. >> i did not care about a ship. it was wood and nails and plastic, and i did not care about losing that. i cared about losing my fresh and blood daughter. >> reporter: her daughter grew up and died at age 51 and the el
12:33 am
faro sank. a navy vessel may have found the missing ship that had crew members on board. the emotional toll, almost unbearable. >> no survivors. no survivors. which meant my little girl was gone. i don't know how to express my grief rationally. >> reporter: she calls her middle child a ball of child, little but able. it could take investigators two weeks to now locate the ship's data recorder. that's information this broken family could find to be healing. >> i wonder when she knew the ship was sinking, if she had tried to figure out some way to
12:34 am
escape. or some way to save everybody on there. because that's how she was. >> a difficult story to tell. and that was cnn affiliate, wcuv reporting. and the crash of flight 9268, investigators believe the airliner came apart well before it hit the ground. they don't know why. we are joined by phillip butter worth, an air traffic control expert. he joins us now via skype from england. thank you for talking with us. now, when you look at all that we've been told about, all bringing pieces together as an air traffic control expert, what is your sense of what may have happened to this doomed flight? >> it's very, very strange. airplanes don't just break up in flight. i think in the entire history of
12:35 am
aviation that we've followed, possibly three or four i'm stances where that's happened and we know what happened in every instance, and we've built airplanes for that not to happen. at the moment, this is an extraordinary aviation incident that we don't know the answer to. >> and what's confounding is that isis is climbing responsibility saying it shot down the plane. how likely is that when you consider, really, this plane was at 31,000 feet, and isn't it 14,000 feet that these surface to air missiles can hit? so how is that even possible, do you think? does it play into this at all? >> no. i don't think -- if something wrong happened, if it was brought down by some kind of terrorist organization, it wouldn't have been shot down, i wouldn't have thought. there would be another explanation. we're really struggling to look at what natural sort of cause it
12:36 am
could be. and we'll be able to find out soon once they have the black box data. at the moment, it's a real mystery. >> there was talk about the condition of this plane. it hit before, and the tail, it wasn't considered airworthy by some. do you think, as you say, these planes don't just break apart. do you think, though, if the it's not structurally strong, that there's a possibility that that could have played into this in some way? >> absolutely not. these airplanes are built to be the typically strong. in other words, two things, three things have to go wrong for a major catastrophe like this to happen. and that just doesn't happen anymore. you know, if you look at how it's 17 years old, this aircraft, it's not young, but it's certainly robust enough to
12:37 am
be, i would say, safe. i mean, absolutely, there's no question about that at all. so something, not just one thing, but two or three things muff gone wrong. if you look at what could have happened, there could have been an explosion in the fuel tank. but, again, perhaps a truck could have hit the back when it was in the ground and nobody would have noticed that, but there would have two or three different structural failures for that to cause this sort of thing. airplanes don't just break up in flight. >> it is confounding, and hopefully the day, the black boxes will be able to answer some of these questions. but many thanks, sir, phillip buttersworth hasyes for talking with us. a diplomatic breakthrough as
12:38 am
countries try to reach common ground. and myanmar's history election days away. we'll show you the pageantry and excitement of the final days of campaigning. we're back in a moment. i'm caridee. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara®

here in myanmar's largest city. the people look like they're in a really good mood right now. it's very festive. a lot of happy faces and smiles. for those people, it's the first time in a generation that they'll get the chance to vote in national elections for their party. there literally isn't room to walk here in this crowd that's seated in the heat, patiently waiting for the lady of the hour. the leader of the nld. >> translator: some people say it's not time for us to achieve real democracy yet, but i think it's just because they don't want to give us to us. everyone deserves democracy.
12:46 am
>> reporter: and she leads the biggest opposition party in myanmar. the last time they competed in a national election was in 1990, and by all accounts, they won big time. but then the military annulled the results of the vote and placed her and many of her colleagues under arrest for decades. but the main rival will be the incumbent ruling party which enjoys the support of the military, and the military is guaranteed to hold onto at least 25% of the seats in the next parliament, meaning the generals are not going away any time soon. ivan watson, cnn. >> some of the top women in hollywood are planning remakes of all male cast movies starring women only. we'll have the details coming up in an entertainment roundup. plus they're celebrating in kansas city, missouri, after the
