if you're pining for adventure. >> have a treemendous time. >> tree you later. >> not if i tree you first. secum el sheikh airports amid growing belief that a bomb brought down a metro jet. and myanmar counts the votes in its freest election in decades. and ben carson attacks the media as questions escalate about his accuracy describing i said dents in his past. a warm welcome to all of you. it's great to have you with me.
11:01 pm
i'm errol barnett here with you for the next two hours on "cnn newsroom." >> we begin this hour in egypt where russian investigators are set to began examining egyptian airport security in the coming hours. over the next few days, aplan to order all of egypt's major investigators. this is amid suspicions that a bomb took down the jet. a u.s. official says they're all but certain but egyptian authorities say they're not sure. let's go to ian lee who joins us live this morning. ian, egyptian fishofficials reluctant to put the plam blame bomb. what do we know?
11:02 pm
>> reporter: well, we know there was a loud sound on the voice recorder right before it went silent and the plane crashed. there was theories about the sound. the predominant theory is about a bomb. egyptian officials have been reluctant to say it's a bomb. they're saying it could be from a mechanical issue or a battery exploding, but what will really determine this is further analysis of that sound, which that help is being offered too not only by the russians but by other international partners. the other thing that's going to determine if this is a bomb or not is really, reviewing the wreckage. that will have the physical signs of a bomb. there will be debris or shrapnel marks they'll be looking for as well as residue. those are clues that are going
11:03 pm
to help really determine what exactly brought down this jet, airli errol. >> because of the location, it opens up a new front in the war against isis and isis-linked militants. i know this is something you've been looking into these past few days. what did you find? >> reporter: well, we met with some tribal leaders, and isis has been very effective up north, but the one thing they haven't been able to do is push down south. and their war up in the north has been very brutel. it started slowly but picked up in 2013 after the overthrow of the islamist president. hundreds of people have been killed in that fighting, but the bedouin down here in the south have said that isis is not
11:04 pm
welcome, and a number of times they've been forced to push them back. >> ian lee, walking to us from sharm el sheikh egypt just past 9:00 in the morning there. russian authorities there looking at the status of security at the airport, looking for answers. ian, thank you. in the meantime, u.s. lawmakers are also weighing in on the airport security. a lead member of the house intelligence security committee says if a security breach can happen in egypt, it can happen in the u.s. >> when we test the tsa, they fail. and we need to step ur our security here, but i also think with this, if this is a bomb by the affiliate of isis in the sinai, they have now fully eclipsed al qaeda as the gravest trs threat in the world. >> russians continue to mourn the deaths of the passengers on board the flight.
11:05 pm
in st. petersburg, the intended destination for the plane, hundreds of people attended a service honoring the victims. the bell tolled 224 time, once more each person who died. nick robertson is in st. peterberg and joins us with more on this. no matter what the cause, hundreds of lives were lost, and families devastated by this. who are people there blaming? >> reporter: you know, it's interesting, errol. people came to the cathedral where the service was held, the memorial service. they came in the hundreds, not the thousands. now might have expected more people to come, but it was very somber, a very solemn mood, but we did talk to people there about why they thought the plane came down, and i would say 60 to
11:06 pm
70% of the people we talked to, particularly the older people, did tend to believe and think that this was a terrorist attack. some people, one young man told us, he said it's a plane, a machine in the air. it's not terrorism, but i think the idea that isis could have been behind this, and the idea that isis was behind it because of russian's intervention in syria is a growing idea here. people have been sort of slow to pick up on this because it's something that the government here has sort of tried to push to one side and initially resisted the notion that it might be a bomb that pointed to the breakup of the plane and things like that, but once russia cancelled all flights to egypt and left close to 80,000 tourists stranded and bringing them wac on flights now back to russia, i think this has sent a clear message to most people here that they do recognize that
11:07 pm
this was in most likelihood, and they're expecting to hear soon, that this was the terrorist attack. >> and one thing that stands out to me. typically in these cases of national mourning, you have leaders, political, local, national leaders attending the memorial services like this. the russian president was absent. what reason, if any, did officials give for not attending the service this weekend? >> reporter: you know, strangely silent on that from the kremlin. they said a few hours before the memorial that president putin wouldn't be attendig, but i think people here have seen, they're used to president putin being out in front of big national issues. particularly security issues. he will visit the site and the scene. he leads the way. if there are executives at a company that's deemed to have performed badly, he'll talk
11:08 pm
about getting them replaced and getting investigations on this. he's been very noticeably low profile on the specifics of taking a roll in talking about the issue and talking about the fact that the plane came down and talking about what it might be. and this morning the kremlin has announced that president putin has gone to ta southern resort where he'll be meeting with defense industry manufacturing chiefs. it gives the impression that he's sort of hunkering down, out of the limelight, but he's going to be looking very seriously about how russia can make sure that it is militarily equipped to deal with any increasing terror threat and potentially an escalation of the military campaign inside syria. i mean, that's the impression that it creates. certainly the message here is that president putin is staying out of the limelight and away from the cameras and has gone to the extent of going to the city
11:09 pm
for this conference, something that takes place a few times a year. >> certainly, it does send that visual message j but in the meantime, back in sharm el sheikh, russian investigators have now arrived so they can independently evaluate security at the airport. egyptian officials have been tight lipped on the cause, even at this stage, not confirming that a bomb is to blame. how might that incident impact the russian egyptian relationship? >> reporter: well, egypt is hugely important to russia. you know, at this time, this decade, if you will, when president putin looks at nato and allies, if you will, removing mo mar gaddafi. he didn't expect it. and habiter about that loss. at the moment he's propping up
11:10 pm
president asaad in syria. the message that russia wants to send to the arab nations and has been sending, lavrov, that same year as the arabs, december 2011, telling arab leaders if we support you, we will continue to support you through thick and thin, essentially a message there to countries like saudi arabia and egypt that felt that the united states wasn't stepping in behind them. so this time, russia's relationship with egypt is important as russia wants to continue to have a strong foothold and influence inside the middle east and in particular with egypt, perhaps gain a new or closer ally there, and that would be at the expense, to some degree, of the united states. that relationship is important, and it seems to have been partly the reason why russia treads
11:11 pm
carefully when it's been talking up until the last few days, at least, about the possibility of a bomb. now it stopped the flights and sent all the messages that it believes very likely it was a terrorist attack. it will try to figure out if it's really safe for russians to be going on tourist trips to egypt. again, there is an important level in this relationship, and that is to try to keep russian interest strongly aligned, even at this time in egypt. >> 11 minutes last nine in st. petersburg. russian bloggers say they've spotted russian -- they used photos on social media to gee owe locate three current or former russian soldiers. the bloggers say they don't have proof the soldiers have been vol involved in ground fighting, but they suggest their involvement is beyond an air campaign.
11:12 pm

11:14 pm
and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

let's get you to myanmar where millions of votes aring with counted. people there are celebrating, excited that the military may lose more of its power after decades of tight control. results are expected early this week. opposition leader eers party is expected to win the most parliamentary seats. ivan wattson is there. >> reporter: much of this country is waiting for the results of the first open parliamentary elections in a 25 years and it's difficult to could want up all of these
11:17 pm
ballots. i've traveled around the country side here. you have different logistics and infrastructure. far flung towns that don't even have cell phone access or don't really even have electricity. what is without question is that there was a great deal of enthusiasm when people went to the polls on sunday. they line up before dawn. hours before polling stations open, committed to casting their ballot. critics say there are serious structural flaws in sunday's parliamentary election. and yet, it's still being promoted as the closest thing myanmar has seen to a democratic national election in 25 years. >> the atmosphere in these polling stations is hushed and solemn. for many people, this is the first time they've ever voted in a general election. >> reporter: among the new voters, this man and his wife.
11:18 pm
for them, this election has been hard work. they waited in line for five hours to cast their ballots. he says it was worth the wait. >> this is the only way we hope that we can change the things in the future, our future, our baby, my daughter, i have one daughter. nine years old. so for their future we have to vote. >> reporter: some here hope this election will help bring an end to decades of military rule. and many have pinned those hopes on this woman. the noble peace prize winner and leader of the country's largest opposition party, the national league for democracy. the last time her party competed in a national election was in 1990. the party won but then the military annulled the results
11:19 pm
and arrested her and many of her colleagues. this time myanmar's president vows that the election results will be respected. in the afternoon, a tropical downpour hits the town, but it does not dampen some people's enthusiasm. at 4 p.m., the gates close at this buddhist monastery turned polling station. workers begin the vote count under the close eye of election observers. representatives from some of the dozens of the political parties competing in this contest. outside, members of the public watch and wait to learn the future of their country. >> reporter: we have heard the results of one race. the speaker of parliament, the former chairman of the ruling usdp party which enjoys the support of the military, he has
11:20 pm
conceded defeat in his race. this is not a fair election. 25% of the seats in the upcoming parliament have been reserved for the military to appoint the seats. that leaves for the seats up for grabs in this election if the main opposition party wants to win a majority, it has to win at least two-thirds of the seats that are up for grabs. that's a very difficult challenge for any political party in any election around the world, and it's also a considerable boost to the ruling party, again, which enjoys the support of the military and would presumably ally itself with those military appointment quarter seats in the parliament. it gives you a sense of how the deck is stacked against the opposition. >> ivan watson in myanmar for
11:21 pm
us. african american football players at the university of missouri are boycotting all games amid a growing call for the president to step town. they say he's been negligent in his response to incidents on the campus. in a statement on sunday, wolfe said he's dedicated to on going conversations to address the issues but one student is continuing a hunger strike, demanding kroewolfe's removal. >> i'm in it because this is serious. we're dealing this humanity. at this point, we can't afford to continue to work with individuals who don't care for their constituents, and when you see what's happening on campus now, with the racial incidences and the incidences with graduate health insurance and everything else going on, we have leadership that doesn't care about its student body.
11:22 pm
>> it does not appear that wolfe is going anywhere. he says the university will invail the diversity and inclusion strategy in april. and at the white house they're preparing far visit by netanyahu. the president and netanyahu will try to set aside tensions over the iran nuclear deal in order to discuss u.s. defense aid to israel. we are joined with more on the meeting. and these two world leaders don't share much love for each other, but the u.s. and israel share a special relationship. what deals may be cemented here? >> reporter: i'm not sure they'll be able to cement any deals in this quick meeting but they'll try to push forward some agreements. netanyahu knows that obama will be in office for just over
11:23 pm
another year and then he'll have to work with another president. there are big items in this. the war raging in syria across the frontier, but also the wake, the aftermath of the iran nuclear deal where israel would try to push for a larger military aid package. the question, can they get along even if only for a bit. just when you thought it couldn't get worse, another blow to the strained relations between the prime minister and president obama. days before the two leaders meet in washington, revelations that the new appointment as media advisor accused obama of anti semitism on facebook in the run up to the iran famework agreement, and one said the secretary of defense -- the seven year relationship between netanyahu and obama has only grown worse.
11:24 pm
earlier this year netanyahu made an unprecedented intervention speaking before congress without a white house invitation and criticized the nuclear deal, sparking a public feud between the leaders. >> reporter: the importance of this leader is it passes out further squirmishes that are harmful to the leadership and countries. both say the cooperation between the countries is far more important. netanyahu saying this meeting will be about the all important american aid to israel. the u.s. gives israel some $3 billion a year in aid. and that will include a fighter jet. kerry highlighted this in december. that military aid is set to expire in 2018 and netanyahu could use this chance to push for a bigger aid package. as for the israeli, palestinian
11:25 pm
conflict, a big issue. a top white house advisor there won't be any real peace negotiations before the end of obama's time in office. there are some big items on the agenda here. analysts say they're not expecting any big statements relating to those items. this is a chance for netanyahu and obama to show that they're getting on after the iran deal and show the relationship is still strong. errol in. >> as you say, so long as there isn't an additional incident, this could be seen as a success. live in jerusalem this morning. you can head to cnn.com for more on this story, including an op ed on the relationships. ben carson is lashing out at the media. why the presidential hopeful is angry. also coming up, the suspects charged in april's massacre at a

11:30 pm
historic election. millions of people went to the polls on sunday and many are hoping the military will lose power. results are expected early this week. african american football players at the university of missouri are on strike demanding the president resign. in a statement sunday, the president said he's committed to onlake dialogue to address the issues. the five men expected of orchestrating the horrific attack on a university college are about to stand trial in nairobi. the group al shabaab took responsibility. we are joined with the latest on all of this. robin, these men appear to be not the master minds behind the attack but the ones who were
11:31 pm
physically there. what should we expect to hear today? >> reporter: well, what we understand is that 30 witnesses will be called to testify in the next few days, at least 10 due to receive today. but this trial has so far been delayed several times. this is just a hearing in which we'll hear from the prosecution and the defense. the five men, one of whom is tain a tanzania. two were arrested trying to leave. the other thought are to be kenyan or nonsmally nationals. >> how much is known about why the attack was launched in the first place. some wonder with al shabaab was trying to show strength at a time of weakness. what was this really about? >> reporter: the al shabaab has consistently claimed it will
11:32 pm
bring the war to kenya. so moving from somalia where it's fighting african union forces and bringing attacks to kenya. and they did that throug the west gate attack and this and a few times near kenya's coast. essentially massacring dozens of people. now, was al shabaab at a time of weakness? many would say yes because they have been essentially forced from the capital in 2011 by american union government forces and been on the back foot, chased, essentially from mogadishu down to southern somalia and moving fighters across kenya. we're told that since the attack that the kenyan security services have improved their intention, errol, that they've been working with the
11:33 pm
international community to try to make sure that this kind of massacre does not occur again on kenyan soil and they've been fairly successful with many thwarted attempts, we're told. >> robin, thank you. u.s. republican president candidate ben carson is lashing out at the press, calling the coverage of his campaign sick and stupid. this comes in response to news outlets questioning how accurate he's been about incidents in his past. cnn has the latest. >> reporter: ben carson is disputing the notion that this intense period of media scrutiny is getting under his skin. this is despite an aggressive pushback that he's taken all weekend, and one that he repeated here in puerto rico today, giving a mocking critique
11:34 pm
of the media's coverage of his past. i asked why he would not produce much of the evidence we've been asking for to really quash these questions about his past. and here's how he responded. >> the burden of proof is not on me to corroborate everything that i've ever talked about in my life. once i start down that road, every single day, from now until until the election you'll be spending your time doing that, and we have much more important things to do. >> reporter: carson said he believes he's being meld held t higher level of scrutiny because he's higher net polls. >> there's no question. there are a lot of people who are very threatened. they've seen the recent head to head polling against hillary and how well i do. they're worried. there's no question about it. and every single day, or every other day or every week, they're going to come out with, you said this when you were 13, and you
11:35 pm
did this. and the whole point is to distract the populous and me. >> reporter: the tees up an interesti interesting backdrop to tuesday's upcoming debate, and i asked how his mind set is going into this debate given the past week. he said he's ticking in on the issues, on economic and foreign policy and he's not holding any mock debates. cnn, puerto rico. >> now donald trump is weighing in on the issue. he told cnn's jake tapper he stands by the notion that this media scrutiny could be the beginning of the end for carson's campaign. >> it's a lot of scrutiny and, frankly, it's a lot of, a lot of statements that are under fire, and i hope ben is going to be okay with it. it's going to be interesting to see what happens. time will tell. but it is certainly a lot of people are asking a lot of questions all of a sudden, and, you know, it's a little bit
11:36 pm
tough. i would say it's not so easy on ben. i hope, frankly, it comes out great for him. >> okay. now, trump is getting a few critiques of his own after hosting saturday night live. did any of you see this? some critics say the performance didn't live up to the hype, but the episode brought in the show's biggest ratings in nearly four years. during his opening monologue, trump proved that he is willing to poke fun at himself. >> they've done so much to ridicule me over the years. this show has been a disaster for me. look at this guy. >> great. great. great. ant he doing fantastic? [ applause ] >> i got to say you're doing a great job. in fact, i think the show just got better by about 2 billion percent. look at this. [ applause ] >> you think you're this
11:37 pm
terrific person. you think you're this. you think you're that. baa baa baa baa. you're being very naive and, quite frankly, you're fired. >> wait, which one was the caricatu caricature. which one was donald trump. i'm not sure. still to come, more on his saturday night live gig and what the critics had to say. s a coalso coming up, an excluse interview from a former prison of a south korean prison camp. next. get ready for homecomings. i see you brought a friend? i wanna see, i wanna see. longing. serendipity. what are the... chances. and good tidings to all. hang onto your antlers. it's the event you don't want to miss. it's the season of audi sales event. get up to a $2,500 bonus

conditions at north korea's prison camps are the focus of the united nations inquiry. on a recent visit, will ripley spoke with a former inmate who tells a different story about his experience.
11:41 pm
here's the exclusive interview. >> reporter: when we asked to visit a north korean prison, officials take us to this apartment. we meet the family of the first former inmate north korea has ever allowed us to interview. he served two years at a prison camp. seen by outsiders only in satellite images, the north korean defectors testifying to the united nations describe a modern day concentration camp. the accused regime denies holding political prisoners and denies three generations of punishment. did you witness any public executions? >> no, he says. >> were you ever starving? did you witness people who were starving? >> he says they had plenty to eat. >> were you tortured?
11:42 pm
did you see people being tortured? >> and calls my questions about torture nonsense. he refuses to give why he was in prison or daily details. he says someone is stealing his identity, using his name to tell lies about prison conditions. i want to cut off his head, strangle and kill him. a national trader saying he's me. i didn't steal anyone's name, says the other man, speaking to cnn in seoul. he claims the names are a coinciden coincidence. he says his mother changed his name as a child, and he changed it back after fleeing north korea. we can't identify the identity. like many defectors, he doesn't have original defectors. north korea often tries to discredit defectors calling them
11:43 pm
criminal scum. they're accusing me of identity theft. this is nonsense. >> he changed portion of his life story. >> reporter: there are stories of detecters being less than truthful. to fight back against what it calls false claims, north korea is putting its own carefully selected former inmate in front of our cameras. but until they open their doors to international inspection, they're unlikely to convince the outside world. will ripley, cnn, pyongyang. >> very interesting. now, 15 years from now, 100 million more of the world's population could be forced into poverty as a result of climate change. that's according to a new report from the world bank which points to the increased threat of floods, droughts and disease.

11:55 pm
moments. they had donald trump live tweeting one of the sketches saying very derogatory things about some of the cast members, calling them losers. one of the funniest moments was donald trump dancing to a drake song. some other highlights, though some of the reviews was that it was a little bit boring. very interesting but clearly did not ruin the ratings. highest ratings in two years since 2012. and donald trump says he brings in the ratings, and he does. >> he delivered on that part. let's talk about some other things happening. the newest bond film came out. dani daniel craig was criticized for his marketing. in the end were the critics right? did he pull off a solid performance, or does it seem like he wants to move on? >> he made those comments about

airport security is now under scrutiny in egypt after the metro jet crash. >> myanmar waits for the results in a historic election. and don't quit your day job. donald trump tries his hand at
12:01 am
comedy, but the reviews are mixed. welcome to our viewers here in the states, and those of you around the world. i'm errol barnett. thanks for joining me. this is "cnn newsroom." >> jiegypt's airports are under intense scrutiny even as officials say it's too soon to say what caused the crash of a jet. there's growing consensus among investigators in the u.s. that a bomb brought down the airliner, and some american officials say -- >> isis may have concluded that the best way to defeat airport defenses is not to go through them but to go around them with the help of somebody on the inside. if that's the case, i think there are probably at least a dozen airports in the region and beyond that are vulnerable to the same kind of approach which is exactly why we have to harden
12:02 am
those defense. >> adam schiff is a lead member of the house intelligence committee. he said if a security breach can happen in an egyptian airport, it can happen in the u.s. >> this is a problem here at home. when we test the tsa, they fail. he need to step up our security here. i think with this, if this is a bomb by the affiliate of isis in the sinai, isis has fully eclipsed al qaeda as the gravest terrorist threat in the world. >> nick robertson will join us in moments. but we begin with ian lee. at this point officials seem reluctant to put the blame on a single bomb. tell us what we know about the plane's last moment and what the potential causes could be. >> reporter: well, errol, in the last moments of the plane, you can hear from the voice recorder
12:03 am
a loud bang. now, u.s. and uk officials believe that this is an ek pleegs fr explosion from a bomb. egyptian officials are saying it's too early to tell. it could be an engine exploding or battery exploding. they say they're not sure. we are hearing from u.s. officials that the federal bureau of investigation, the fbi, may lend some support to the egyptians to help determine what brought this plane down, and one example, they said, was that they could help them analyze the sound to determine what it is. there's still an ongoing investigation on the ground to find any sort of debris and evidence of the bomb there f. still at this hour, there's a lot of scrutiny about the security at egyptian airports. russia has a team on the ground here as well. not just in sharm el sheikh at the airport behind me but also
12:04 am
in cairo and other airports around the country to make sure it's safe to resume normal operations, normal procedures. >> now, isis linked groups in the sinai peninsula are among the kind of key suspects here, but what kind of challenges would fighting with militants there pose? >> well, isis is in the northern part of the sinai, and it has been an incredibly deadly. the militant group arose after the 2011 revolution, but really unleashed its wave of terror after the 2013 overthrow of islamist president, but they have been fairly confined to the northern part of the country, not able to penetrate the south. cnn got an exclusive interview with three bedouin sheiks, three tribal leaders who explained why. >> this harsh landscape is the new front line in the battle
12:05 am
against isis. and the men defending it are not soldiers or police. they are bedouin tribes, no mads who ruled the sinai for centuries. we traveled dusty, bumpy road to find them. we meet three sheiks from three different tribes who tell us they directly confronted isis. drawing a line in the sand. we stopped isis more than 20 times. we went out with more than 50 cars and kicked them back. we didn't shoot one bullet because if one bullet was shot, there would be a war. the bedouin accomplished something that billions of dollars and weapons couldn't. they stopped isis expanding from the northern part of sinai to here in the south without shedding any blood. isis's egyptian offshoot is already one of the most dangerous. it has kills hundreds of soldiers and police officers in
12:06 am
northern sinai. and it's trying to expand. sinai is a desert. the north is flat. the south covered in mountains and that's why isis wants to push south. so that they can use this rocky terrain for cover while fighting their war. the sheiks tell me their cousins in the north face a dilemma. they want to fight isis but if they're caught with weapons, the egyptian army might see them as militants. if they help the army, terrible retribution. here, isis beheads alleged army collaborators, but these men are ready to take that risk, even though their communities and sinai have long been marginalized by the government in far off cairo. the bedouins reject isis east twisted version of islam and its invasion of their lands. the tribes could defeat isis if the government came and gave us
12:07 am
arms and said fight isis, they would fight isis, says this tribal leader. they'd finish them, completely. and they're ready for battle, so save their families, their honor and age old way of life. well, and errol, these tribal leaders told me that while they're ready to fight isis, they need the weapons but there has been a lot of mistrust between cairo and the bedouin tribes. the bedouins say they support the army in their operations, but if they were given the word to go ahead and clear out isis from the sinai, they said they're more than happy to do it. >> so there you have it. the bedouin men ready to act, and they know the terrain and the ground so well. we cross now to nick robertson.
12:08 am
nick, no matter what the cause was of this disaster, hundreds of lives were lost and families there, of course, devastated, but i'm wondering if people see isis as responsible or do they blame the rurgs government in any way for its intervention in syria? >> reporter: at the moment, errol, it seems to be a case of people are just beginning to stake stock that this could possibly be a terrorist event. this is something that the government here has pushed back on perhaps because of political sensitivity. it doesn't seem to want to link the jet with the military campaign that it's fighting inside syria, so perhaps that's why people are being to struggle with that. 100 victims aboard that plane have been identified. more bodies arrived back in st. petersburg in a plane from egypt on sunday. there was also a memorial service here perhaps providing
12:09 am
some solace for some of the victim's families. amid the rich splen or the of russia's christian orthodox tradition, morne tradition mourners came to pay their respects. >> it's a horrible tragedy for all russian people, for family or those people. bells tolled for each of the victims. >> reporter: 224 times. for a ten month old, for her parents. for a couple whose friends believe became enjajed in sharm el sheikh. for a 32-year-old whose body has yet to be found. for a 33-year-old businessman. and so many more.
12:10 am
the congregation dwarfed in the cathedral, still struggling with the enormity of the growing likelihood terrorism brought the plane down. >> this is machine in the air, and not terrorist. >> this long time resident, not so sure. >> i think it will be proved at some point it was a terrorist attack, she tells us. so, of course, i'm worried. we are all worried. whatever the truth, few here think it will impact the government offensive in syria. >> i think it's -- that the government will follow the, the line that they have chosen already. >> reporter: that it was hundreds, not thousands here, surprising, given that this is the country's deadliest ever air disaster, and an apparent direct targeting on its citizens by overseas terrorists, a potential
12:11 am
game changer. it's such a moment in this country's history. president putin is not here. leadership for this day, at least, is being left to god. a temporary glitch, a pause, perhaps, in the continuum of russian politics as it leaders ponder their next move. >> well, another imperative for the politicians here is to get those, what was close to 80,000 russian tourists who have been stranded in egypt because russia suspended flights to egypt. to get them home, over the weekend, 15,000 have been brought back to russia. we're also learning putin has gob to the southern coastal resort where he's spending the week in conference with defense chiefs and the sort of leaders of the armaments industry,
12:12 am
perhaps planning his future campaigns. errol. >> and perhaps a bit of symbolism in that. nick robertson live for us. thanks to ian live in sharm el sheikh as well. russian bloggers used groups on social media to locate soldiers. they say they don't have proof the soldiers have been vinvolve in ground fighting, but they suggest russian's involvement is more than air campaigns. in myanmar, millions of votes are being counted. results are expected early this week. operation is growing. ivan watson joining us now. as we said here, there was such enthusiasm and optimism ahead of this election.
12:13 am
it truly could represent a turning point for the country. just explain the importance of the outcome of this democratic vote. >> that's right. there's a great deal of anticipation. this was the first openly contested national parliamentary election in 25 years. so there's a great deal of anticipation as people are waiting for the election commission to announce the final results. the preliminary statements that we're starting to get from some of the different political parties that competed in the election suggest that it did not go very well for the ruling political paerrty, the usdp par, which enjoys the backing of the military that has dominated this country for more than half a century. the acting chairman of the usdp has given a number of on camera interviews in which we heard him say, quote, we have a higher r
12:14 am
percentage of losses than wins. it suggests that this has not been a good election for the ruling political party. now, we've also talked to some officials from the main opposition party, the noble peace prize winner and her national league for democracy. some of them claiming big wins in this election, but some of the math is very important here, errol. this is not entirely a free election. the military has the constitutional right to appoint 25% of the seats in the next parliament. and that means if the opposition party wants to win a majority of seats, it has to win at least two-thirds of the seats that are up for grabs right now. in any election in the world, that would have to be a massive
12:15 am
margin for the party to win we. and it's quite a serious handicap that her party will be working against. so even though we're getting signs that the ruling party has not done well, even its chairman hasn't won his election bid, we still don't know the margin by which some of the opposition parties may have performed at. errol in. >> and there's so much on the line here. we want to wait until all those votes are counted. many of them coming from rural areas. it may take time to get the official number. ivan watson live for us. thank you. croatia's conservative opposition party is claiming victory. the early results from sunday's voting show the conservatives won 61 seats in parliament and the ruling said the left party won 53. the conservatives are expected

poverty. this is a result of climate change. this according to a new report from the world bank which points to the increased threat of floods, droughts and disease. the report says eradicating poverty will be essentially impossible if the efbfects of global warming aren't taken into account. california ski resorts are beginning to open their doors after recent heavy snows blanketed the slopes. given the state's horrible drought conditions, that's good news. pedram javaheri joins us with more details on that. >> it's fantastic news. the areas like squaw valley, a lot of these ski resorts typically would open later into november. take a look at recent years, you know what a dismal season it's been across this portion of the year when it comes to snowfall in general. there's the 100% line. the average line from 2012 to
12:25 am
2015. 5% of normal. that's what we've had in the way of accumulated snow when it comes to the average snow depth. take a look at the perspective this time last month. about.9% snow kovrk. up to about 31% in the snow coverage area from mountain ma' mammoth. it's improving very quickly. another storm system coming in. higher elevation snowfall. above 7,000 feet, decent accumulation. another storm comes in later on monday into tuesday. you would imagine winter weather advisors locked in this region with additional accumulations. the purple puts us in 12 to 18 inches in snow over that area. certainly fantastic news. across parts of the south eastern u.s., it has been the opposite in the way of moisture in the way of rainfall across
12:26 am
this region. a lot of it across the southeast in fact the atlanta metro, an incredible amount of rain inform in the past 15 days, it's rained all by one day, the day before halloween was the only day it didn't rain across atlanta. that pattern looks to continue. locked in across the southeast. nearly a one foot surplus in the rainfall department with rain coming down, and it looks like it's going to continue if the el niño pattern continues to hold a firm grip. >> it changes the mood. everybody wants to stay inside. it changes. >> yes. >> all right. thanks very much. still to come here on cnn news room, israel's prime minister and the u.s. president often don't see eye to eye, but they'll try to put their feelings aside when they meet face to face. also ahead, ben carson is hitting back at the media for what he calls unfair treatment,

12:32 am
monday? >> reporter: well, the aftermath of the iran nuclear deal will be tops on the agenda for the prime minister. he complained against the deal and criticized it up until the deal was done. now he knows the deal is a fact, and he's focussed on the newspaper. the primary focus is the u.s. military aid package. right now it's $3 billion a year. it's set to expire in 2018. this is a chance to lobby for a larger package, maybe $5 billion a year. it won't happen that quickly. it's a long process, but netanyahu can begin pushing for that added military aid. we know and we've seen military aid like fighter jets and weapons that the u.s. has given israel. again, this is a chance for netanyahu to keep pushing to increase that deal in the wake of the iran nuclear deal. now, of course, what will also be on his agenda will be the israeli palestinian conflict. that is not quieting down in
12:33 am
this wave of violence. three alleged attacks in the west bank yesterday. one more this morning. he could announce what measures he's being to take toward the palestinians as israeli and palestinian leaders try to ease that tension and put an end to this violence we're seeing. errol, there was, perhaps a bit of hope that this was tailing off, but the recent attacks dashing that hope. certain to be two dig items on the agenda. >> we always say that when world leaders meet, but oh, to be a fly on the wall of the white house when netanyahu and obama say what they really think to each other. live in jerusalem this morning, thanks. u.s. republican presidential candidate, ben carson is lashing out at the media calling some of the coverage of his campaign
12:34 am
sick, calling some of it stupid. this comes in response to news outlets questioning how accurate he's been in writing about incidents in his past. on nbc's meet the press, carson said no other politician has been subjected to this type of scrutiny. >> vetting is a normal part of the process. did you not expect this? >> i have always said that expect to be vetted. but being vetted and what is going on with me, you said this 30 years ago. you said this 20 years ago. this didn't exist. you know, i just -- i have not seen that with anyone else. >> president obama had a bit of a tough time, right, when he was running? does he not remember that? now donald trump is weighing in on this issue, speaking to jake tapper. trump says time will tell how carson's campaign will get through all the scrutiny and pliemed that he had a part time
12:35 am
believing the story about attempting to stab in his youth only to have the knife break when he hit a belt buckle. >> i don't know. when you say hitting your mother over the head with a hammer, when you talk about hitting a friend in the face with a lock, a padlock, and you talk about stabbing someone and it got stopped by a belt buckle, which, you know, belt buckles turn and twist, and things slide off of them. it's pretty lucky if that happened. he talked about he has pathological disease. that's a series statement when you say you have pathological disease. as i understand it, you can't really cure it. >> now, we've got into political commentators to help us discuss some of the bilgeggest headline. ben ferguson, and elaine hurd, a
12:36 am
political commentator and editor. welcome to your both. we should establish that we still have a full year until election day here in the u.s., and we have so much time before americans really start paying close attention to this race. i'm wondering which issue do you think will determine the winner ultimately. is it the economy, climate change, or perhaps isis and syria. elaine, let's start with you. >> i think that people are concerned about what's going on in the middle east, and i think anything could happen over there. i think it's an explosive situation, and that is the wild card. i think we know how people stand on climate change. we know what the issues are on immigration. i think the wild card is the middle east and anything could happen there. >> and ben, what do you make of that? we now have a russian aircraft, potentially brought down by isis. >> i think most of them.
12:37 am
one of the things that you really see among the leaders in the gop right now, they all seem to agree that they think we should be doing more to go after isis, and also should be doing more to push russia out of syria on the side of asaad. that is something they're they all seem to understand and agree on, and people seem to be connecting with them. i think that will be a pivotal point. climate change is political. you're going to pick one side, but it's not going to change your mind about a candidate to switch from a republican to a democratic or the other way. i think when it comes to national security, we're seeing an issue that many people were tired of talking about and dealing with. in 2008 when barack obama ran for president, the same issue is coming up in a big kwa, especially with isis and the possibility of the plane coming down, but also how well funded they are compared to al qaeda. as we see them grow in the middle east and also i think the
12:38 am
way they're growing in influence around the world waen attacks and that they're getting good at attack, that's going to be something that both candidates on both side, they get the nomination, they're going to deal with it. >> it'll be interesting on the republicans to see how the outsiders make voters believe they're best to handle foreign policy. speaking of outsiders, ben carson currently in this news cycle saying he's been attacked by the media over inconsistencies in his biography. in the meantime, donald trump appeared to great ratings on snl. is the media as much of an enemy as they claim. >> with ben carson yes. this question of did he go to west point, would he have gotten a scholarship. it seems crazy to me. you have people all the time that get recruited by multiple universities and they ultimately commit to one. later in one when they're
12:39 am
asking, when you were being recruited, who wanted you, and they list a few universities. that mean they applied to all of them. many of them tell a coach early on, i'm not interested in going that far away from home, but thank you for the recruiting. sapg thing here. he was head of the rotc. he was young and wanted. he put all in for one university and decided to go to yale. it worked out for him. i think the story is being blown un. >> elaine, what do you make of it? >> i think the republicans are a bunch of whiners. i think that they use the media as a convenient foil to hide their own inability to communicate to the people what their policies are. and you can take hillary clinton's performance in front of the benghazi committee for 11 hours and compare it to a couple of cnbc commentators or a few questions from an interviewer,
12:40 am
and i think the republicans are a bunch of whiners and complainers. >> i want to say here, elaine is not holding back. ben, you do the same. let's me move on to the next topic quickly. it's for the democrats. elaine, there is an enthusiasm issue for democrats. they find it difficult to stay in power of two terms in the white house. how can democrats beat history sflf. >> it's going to be difficult to get out the voters. it always is. i wish i knew the magic bullets for democrats. whether the nominee is bernie sanders or hillary clinton, the race is going to be tough for the democrats next year. >> it woud be a big deal with republicans don't win, right? >> it certainly is an advantage when you have eight years of a current administration with a current party and there's fatigue. we've seen that throughout history.
12:41 am
but let's be clear. voter turnout is an issue for hillary clinton. it wasn't for barack obama. look at the massive numbers that came out for him twice. people are not inspired by hillary like they were by obama. the number one issue that people have with hillary clinton is trustworthiness. when people have a problem trusting you, it's hard to get people excited to come out and vote for you. obama never had a deal with that. hillary clinton has a lot of trust issues. that's what the voters are saying. i think that's going to be her biggest weakness. >> bern ferguson and elaine hurd. you don't think ben is a whiner, do you, elaine? >> i don't. but i think the republican candidates are. >> there we go. >> nothing but left here. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> all right. more to come this hour of "cnn newsroom." a tiny mexican village has
