known explosive damage to the bodies. what is painful for the families is not knowing precisely what brought down that aircraft. two different possibilities, john, allison. >> okay, nic, thanks for that. time for an early start on your money. we have seeing a lot of green arrows, itsian and europe poon numbers are higher. yesterday the dow climbed 29 points. the s&p 500 closed up as well, almost erasing all of its summer losses. it is 21 points shy of its record highs. volkswagon troubles got a little bigger, reeling from the diesel emission scandal the german auto maker saying it set carbon dioxide missions too low when certifying some models, moving

percentage points. that's a rehearse am. in national poll, she is over bernie sanders by some 31 points in the "wall street journal"-nbc poll out this week, but it is democrats rallying to her aid. she has strong negative ratings as well if those national numbers, that's why her campaign is facing the state by state polls. bernie sanders is there thursday. hillary clinton goes next week. john, allison. >> all right, jeff, thanks so much. we have breaking election news overnight. a huge win for republicans in kentucky. >> that is million mayor matt bevin. he was just elected governor. this is the second time in four decades, only, that a republican will sit in the governor's office in kentucky.

already we expect nothing concrete to come out of this. is this more of a break the ice kind of meeting? >> well, these two leaders you mentioned never met before. so we're never sure what will come out of these meetings. we do know the news was broke by stated media in taiwan. it took many people in ice i asia by surprise. it's the latest in chinese president xi's diplomatic tour. it started in the u.s. weeks ago. then it transferred into the united kingdom. this meeting may be his most symbolic meeting yet. taiwan and china both the governments of taiwan and china both claim to be the legitimate government of the country of china and that has created tension between the two for decades now. that said, they have quite a substantial economic relationship. china is taiwan's number one trading partner. what we could see coming out of
this meeting is a bolstering of economic ties. >> you talk about that tension, why hold the meeting now? talk a little about the timing of this. >> reporter: well, on the record, these officials will tell threw is no time better than the present. you wouldn't be wrong to speculate there are upcoming national elections playing a part here t. president, his party not doing too well in the polls. they are hoping this meeting will bolster his numbers. >> that said, there are many, many people in taiwan wary of a growing by a. . it could backfire, that has something to do with why this meeting will affect taiwan's national elections, remains to be seen. >> to be a fly on the wall this weekend. matt rivers, live from hong kong, thanks so much. new clues bring new questions on what us caused a russian jet line tore fall from the sky?

killing all people on board. they tell cnn a heat flash by military satellite happened in midair. that leaves open the possibility of a bomb on board metrojet flight 9268. there are reports from russian media the bodies show no science of an explosive impact. that might point towards engine or structural failure as a cause, adding to the confusion, other media reports say some bodies did show evidence of an explosion. egyptian officials say data is being recovered from the plane's black books, that could mean more answers coming soon. >> reporter: hi, allison the mystery of what happened to flight 9268 persists.
most of the information we are getting is coming in bits and pieces. media sources have been tight lipped. russian media reporting that the tail of the plane was found some 3 miles away from the bulk of the wreckage. it didn't show signs of burns, that's potentially significant because we know that in 2001, the same plane's tail clipped the runway in cairo, requiring repairs, aviation experts say those repairs could lead to negative consequences for the acres, years, sometimes deck they hads down the line. now at the same the airline is insistent that it pass all maintenance checks and that the plane was in perceived condition. now egyptian authorities are urging people not to draw any
concluon until in the president is complete. at the head of the president el sisi interviews, he called reports that the plane was downed be abomb or a missile to be speculative. he said that isis' claim of responsibility was pure propaganda. now we know that at the crash site, itself, the field work continues. >> that according to eyewitnesses today, they've expabded the crash site from 25 miles. we also know that they're an leading the cockpit recorder, the data recorder. those seem crucial to solving this mystery. >> you got russia saying that this plairkt aircraft may have broken up in midair. egypt says there are no facts to substantiate this. how much of the differing views is affecting the investigation, if at all? >> it's difficult to say,
egyptian officials again very tight lipped about what's going on, most of what we are hearing is from russian officials saying it did break up in midair. egyptian officials have not countered that information. they're insis tent, though, that any conclusions need to be drawn at the end of this investigation. interesting to note, here in sharm, where the plane originated, egyptian security says they are not increasing security at the airport, because they say at this point there is no indication the plane was downed as a result of terrorism. >> okay. waiting for that information from those two black boxes, erin mclaughlin, thanks very much. now for the grief in russia for the 224 victims of the crash. all but a hand. of tell russian. officials in st. petersburg say 33 bodies have been identified so far.
let's get the latest from st. petersburg from nic robertson. >> reporter: well, another tough day for the families of victims. the process of identifying the bodies continues. what they are hearing in russian media at the moment, two different versions of what killed tear loved ones. did the plane break apart in the air, because the tame section fell off because of an accident a few years ago or was it because a bomb on board? a st. petersburg newspaper the oldest newspaper here, widely respected, reports that the injuries fall into two categories, those in the fronts of the aircraft, they say have got burns and tra ma type injuries, indicative of falling from the sky. the rear of the aircraft have explosive trauma injuries. pieces of metal fragments in the body, they're quoting their sources, okay, here in st. peters burke the forensic teams are examining the bodies.
the potential there for more information being provided. the task state news agency here says, however, what they understand from their sources is there has been no explosive residue found on the bodies. there has been no indication of explosive damage to the bodies, what is not knowing what brought down that aircraft. two different policy, john, allison. >> nic, thanks for that. time for an early start on your money, seeing a lot of green arrows this morning, asian and european marks are higher. yesterday the dow climbed 89 point the s&p 500 nearly erased all of its summer losses. it's 21 points shy of the record high. nice. regulators slapping the takata organization with a huge fine for selling botched airbags. a $70 million penalty for selling the defective airbags,
an extra $130 million if takata fails safety measures going forward. at the root of a massive recall tied to seven deaths. they can explode when activated. honda announced overnight, it will stop using takata airbags in any of its new cars, really amazing news out of that. >> huge news, very, vrl big. donald trump, lashing out at his opponents, that and a new poll shows hillary clinton reversing a trend in a key state. we have new developments in the race for president next. ...huddling with their man after the game is nice too. the thing is, about half of men over 40 have some degree of erectile dysfunction.

meeting happen, it could also backfire, because there are plenty of people in taiwan, very wary of a creeping beijing influence as they would call it into taiwan, into the economic system there, so it is certainly perhaps a calculated political move by the party in power right now in taiwan, but it could backfire on them. we'll have to wait and see what happens. >> all right. interesting meeting. we'll wait and see what developments, what concrete developments come out of this, historic to say the least. there is troubling efforts on china's efforts to stop global warming. the biggest emitter of coal has been burning 17% more coal than the government previously disclosed. according to data published by a chinese statistical agency, beijing has been underestimating its whole consumption since 2000. it turns out, choirn china burns
