>> this is cnn news room live from los angeles. our breaking news this hour. protesters are blocking a major interstate highway in chicago, angry about a just-released video that shows a white police officer shooting and killing a black teen. is plus, vladimir putin calls it a stab in the back. new fears of the syrian crisis escalating after turkey shoots down a russian war plane. and donald trump isn't backing away from controversial comments about american muslims on 9/11, despite an apparent lack of proof. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around
the world. i'm isha sesay. "newsroom l.a." starts right now. controversial dash cam video shows a twhiet police officer shooting a black teen. laquan mcdonald is seen running towards a patrol car. authorities say the 17-year-old was armed with a knife. the teen then walks away from the two police officers who have their guns drawn. seconds later, an officer open fires and mcdonald falls to the ground. the teen was shot 16 times. the officer jason van dyke has been charged with first degree murder. protesters are blocking an interstate in chicago right now. we want to show you the
pictures. authorities had been preparing for possible protest ahead of the video release showing aerial images right now on the streets of chicago. that's where we find cnn's rosa flores. set the scene for us. what's happening? >> let me set the scene for you. behind you, it's a major interstate, not only from chicago p.d. but from state police. moments ago, hundreds of protesters were blocking this major intersection and now they moved on. you can see the protesters are taking the street and right behind them are police officers, pretty much, taking care of
them, making sure they're following the law. authorities here made it very clear earlier that they're going to allow people to protest, but they're going to have to do it lawfully. why are they here? this is after the release of the video of the killing of laquan mcdonald. we have that video for you. i just have to warn you that the video is graphic. >> reporter: the video is shocking. a white chicago police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. the deadly confrontation captured on a police dash cam more than a year ago led to a first-degree murder charge today for officer jason van dyke. >> we're not going to say anything right now. >> this officer went overboard and abused his authority.
and i don't believe the force was necessary. >> police say the 17-year-old was shot and killed while holding a knife after slashing a tire on chicago's southwest side. van dyke was one of eight officers on scene that night. but prosecutors say he was the only one to shoot. opening fire only six seconds after arrivinarriving. officer van dyke's partner related he could hear mcdonald struggling to breathe and he told van dyke to hold his fire so he could kick the knife away. >> reporter: the dash cam video shows his body being riddled with bullets even after his body fell to the ground. and the autopsy confirms the teen was hit 16 times. >> van dyke's partner reported that there was a brief pause in the shots when he looked at van dyke and saw that he was preparing to reload his weapon. >> van dyke's lawyer said his client acted in self-defense and the case shouldn't be played out
in the media. >> this is a case that needs to be tried in a courtroom. wr wr the rules of evidence are in play and the constitution is in play. this is a case that my client should be afforded the same presumption of innocence of every other american. >> the mcdonald family received a $5 million settlement from the city of chicago but did not want the video released. in a civil suit filed by journalists, a judge ordered the video should be made public. now the city is preparing for outrage and protests. >> will we use this episode in this moment to build bridges that bring us together as a city, or do we allow it to become a way that it erects barriers that tear us apart as a city? >> you can see behind me that authorities are going to reopen
the ramp after protesters blocked the highway for probably 15, 20 minutes. they have been very mobile, moving from one street to the next around downtown chicago, trying to deliver their message. i've got to tell you a lot of these protesters saying these protests will continue. they want to have an economic impact, and that's why they want to match marnl down michigan avenue, one of the main avenues here in chicago. isha? >> people have been on the streets for a number of hours now. what's your sense, are the crowds growing? >> you know, the crowd has been thinning out as the hours progress. so it's been thinner and grows a bit. right now it's probably in the several hundred. a lot of leaders of this protest are no longer with the pack. so some of them have left. but they do continue to march. and from contacts that we have,
they tell us they do plan more protests tomorrow and also on black friday. >> all right, joining us there from chicago, still people out on the streets protesting. those images which have just become public with the release of the video showing the shooting of mcdonald. stand by, we'll come back to you. i want to bring in martin. >> i can't believe we're just getting this. the police have had thf the whole time. we're here hearing this narrative played out by the police and it's completely contradicted by the video. >> he was a threat. >> yes, that he made some movements towards the police. that he kicked out a window on
the police car hen did things to threaten the lives of the police. now we see this young man, this teenager walking away from the police being shot, falling to the ground and continuously being shot by the police officer. completely different than the narrative that's been told by the preliminary for an entire year. >> but there's no audio to this video. just images. >> yes. >> so talk to me about how that opens up the space to argue against what we're seeing. >> well, one thing, even though there is no audio, we know in terms of seconds. we know this officer that was charged with murder was on the scene less than 30 seconds and that within six seconds of arriving, he started to shoot. and there were five other officers there. none of them fired their weapons. and we're also hearing that his partner was concerned that he continued to fire, even after mcdonald was on the ground. also, when you look at this video, we saw this with the michael brown and ferguson
shooting. the body being left on the ground. we saw a police officer go over to mcdonald and kick the knife away, but we also saw them walking around his body. we didn't see nip go try to administer cpr, do anything of a life-saving nature. >> what does that say to you? >> it says to me when i put it together with what we're hearing about what has taken place over this year, the wall of silence, the lack of cooperation by some of these police officers, it starts to confirm those theories that after shootings, rather than try to save a life, police officers start very quickly spinning their stories. they start talking to each other and creating the story that they're going to put forth. and it also says to me that, but for this video, that narrative that was told by the police officers during this year probably would be the narrative we would be left with.
>> the investigation, taking a year. what is that about? >> you juxtapose that with the payment of $5 million to the family in april. keep in mind, the family hadn't even filed a lawsuit. so the police had enough, the city of chicago had enough information at their disposal in april to say this case has a value, a monetary value, a federal civil rights lawsuit likely to be filed but had not been filed. but from their own assessment, they had enough evidence that they had reviewed to determine that it had a value of $5 million. and offered that payment to the family before a lawsuit was even filed. so if they had that much information in april, it begs the question as to why on the eve of a court order that the video had to be released by wednesday, we see a couple of things happening in chicago. we see the indictment in the morning, we see the release of the video in the evening, and we also see the firing of a cop that was involved, the off-duty
police officer who was actually acquitted last year. we see him being fired. from a timing standpoint, it makes you feel that this police department, the city district attorney have not been transparent. >> the lawyer says his client should be afforded the same presumption of innocence as any other person on trial. he's also saying this is something that should be played out in the courts. do you doubt he will receive the fair trial considering the images that are now out there? >> i'm more concerned about justice in this case. he's saying what any good defense attorney should say. but i think the more important question to be asked is, how come it took a year before this state's attorney would step up and file charges? the evidence that she's been investigating, we can't imagine that had that been a police officer shot, had it not been an
african-american teen that was shot, that it would have taken this much time. so yes, he's going to have his day in court, but i'm more concerned about the jurors and them being able to find this police officer guilty based on the evidence that we have today. >> some great analysis, we appreciate you joining us. thank you. >> we're going to turn our attention now to the situation on the turkish syrian border no uh. alarms of a cold war style diplomatic confrontation. turkey said it shot down the plaep after it ignored repeated warnings and violated turkish aspace. moscow insists the plane never syrian air space. russia says the two pilots ejected and one was shot to death. president vladimir putin was blunt in his condemnation. >> reporter: today's loss for us was a stab in the back from terrorist accomplices. i cannot describe it in any
other way. >> well, for more on this, ben wedeman will join us from to iraq in just a moment. have we been able to determine which side of the syrian-turkish border that russian war plane was actually on when it was shot down? >> at this hour, it is unknown where that plane exactly was when that can you recollect ir f-16 came down. we do know it landed 4 kilometers, 2.5 miles from the turkish border. a news agency here in turkey released an image that shows the flight path of that russian jet. and you can see, it goes over part of turkish air space. now, russia has denied that it entered turkish air space.
they're calling for an independent inquiry into this. they say they have proof it didn't violate turkish air space. but really, at this point, it is fairly much a moot point. a russian helicopter trying to rescue those pilots was taken down. a russian machine was killed according to russian officials. right now, there are calls to deescalate the situation. >> very loud calls to deescalate. turkish officials seem to be suggesting that the russians were targeting their brothers and sisters, the turkmen there in that border area. all of this really driving home the multiple allegiances and the different fronts in the syrian conflict, which make it so very, very difficult to resolve.
>> i deed, and this really does underscore just how complicated this conflict is. now the people in this area are the turkman minority. they've been living in that area dating back to the ottoman empire. that area has been the focus of russian military activity in recent weeks. the russians are trying to clear out the province of anti-regime rebels. and, of course, these men are not in that area. just the other day, the turks who called the russian ambassador an anchor to protest the russian military activity in that area and clearly this shoot down of a russian su-24 may be the direct result of turkish unhappiness with the russian military operations in that area. but really it's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the
increasingly sour relations between ankora and moscow. keep in mind, they're really at polar confliopposites when it co this conflict. many believe they're turning a blind eye towards isis, allowing it to have access to syria along its 822 kilometer border with syria. on the other side, you have russia, a decades long ally of the syrian regime that has clearly decided that it needs to directly become involved in this conflict as increasingly the assad regime had its back to the walls. isha? >> thanks to you both. now a chilling revelation from french police about a narrowly
averted second wave of attacks in paris. we will have the details for you. plus the french president francois hollande visits the white house and gets a show of support. do stay with us. plaque psoriasis... ...isn't it time to let the... ...real you shine... ...through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase... ...the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression... ...or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment.

could a second wave of paris terrorist attacks been stopped just hours before? authorities say abdelhamid abaaoud and another man were planning a suicide attack in another neighborhood. we're joined now live. this continues to be a fast-moving investigation, and some very troubling details released on tuesday. >> absolutely. a very close call in france, prompting authorities around the world to stay on the lookout for any possible terror in their own countries. what you had here was another attack planned for the financial district which was thwarted by the police. so countries all around the
world, trying to learn lessons about this and what it means for them. here's pamela brown who has more from new york. >> reporter: a new manhunt across europe for this man, mohamed abrini after new intelligence revealed his roles in the paris attacks. police say abrini may have dropped off one ott attabomberso attacked the 6 stadium. the search for abdeslam has spread to germany. french investigators are trying to determine whether a possible suicide vest found in a garbage can belonged to abdeslam or someone else. french authorities revealing details of what could have been a second wave of terror. investigators say they found two more explosive vests and an automatic pistol in that nearby
apartment where a police raid took out the paris attacks mastermind abdelhamid abaaoud. the french prosecutor says in that apartment, abrosimova's second terror cell against paris's financial district. in stunning admission, they said he was not only in paris during the attacks but his cell phone indicates he returned to the crime scenes at 10:28 p.m., even as the bataclan concert hall was still under siege, swarming with police. questions now about this purported cell phone video of the attacks posted by isis. was it from abrosimova's own phone? in the days after the attacks, french officials thought he was in syria. >> the first thing you see was these included foreign fighter, who were hardened, trained and experienced. >> the metro and schools in bet
jerusalem remain closed under the highest terror alerts. officials don't believe they dismantled the full terror cell in belgium linked to the terrorist attacks. >> we're trying to go out just in the mornings. and after the night, we just stay at home. >> reporter: back in the u.s., they are encouraging police departments to retrain in active shooter situations. the nypd is ratcheting up surveillance and security around the thanksgiving day parade. >> this will include uniformed police officers and traffic agents. >> pamela brown, cnn, atlanta. >> so isha, the latest thinking from here, there's a great deal of concern.
how do you respond to it. a counterterrorist official told us they have actually taken away access to the tarmac at charles de gaulle airport for ten employees they feel are too radicalized. so lots of people being radicalized on the transport they were on the typical sorts of threats in this new environment, isha. >> very worrying, indeed. let's talk about the diplomatic effort. francois hollande huddled with barack obama behind closed dpoors on tuesday. do we know wh he got what he was looking for? >> barack obama is very much shoulder to shoulder with france and talking about how cooperation between the two c l countries is vital. stfs a very powerful moment in
terms of the most powerful leader in the world standing next to president hollande there. i think hollande did get what he wa wanted. what he wants is for a concerted effort against syria, against isis on the ground in syria. what he needs is for the u.s. and russia to be working closely together militarily in a joint effort with all the world's super power mite against isis in syria. he didn't get that, because essentially what obama is saying, he will only work with russian military if russia and putin agrees only to target isis targets in syria and he doesn't believe they're only targeting isis. he also believes they're targeting assad opposition groups as well. that's a stumbling block for holland.

protesters have blocked a major street? chicago after police released video of a white officer shooting a black teen. that officer has been charged with first degree murder. >> the secretary general is urging calm after turkey shot down a russian war plane. turkey said the plane ignored a series of warning and was shot down after violating turk irk air space. moscow insists the jet remain over syria. vladimir putin says the incident will have serious consequences. french police say they narrowly alerted a second wave of terror attacks in paris. two suspects were planning a suicide bombing of account financial district when police raided their department. both men were killed in the raid. >> now, u.s. republican presidential candidate donald trump is doubling down on his disputed comments about 9/11 and other topics. cnn's sarah murray looks at
trump's relationship with the truth during his campaign. >> donald trump, refusing to back down from his latest controversial comments. >> there were people that were very, very happy, and those people, not good people. nobody believed me. some believe -- by the way, thousands of people believed me because they saw it. >> standing by his widely disputed claim that he saw thousands of people in new jersey celebrating the day of the 9/11 attacks. >> i watched when the world trade center came tumbling down, and i watched in jersey city, new jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. >> trump's sometimes casual relationship with the fact, a signature from the campaign since the day he announced. >> when mexico sends his people, they're not sending their best. >> linking undocumented mexican
immigrants to violent crime. >> they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. they're rapist. and some, i assume, are good people. >> a statement that earned him four pinnochios from "the washington post," because studies show immigrants don't commit more crimes than native-born americans. another more recent immigration claim, this one about syrian refugees. >> we have a president that wants to take hups of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people and move them into our country. they don't know who they are. >> but the white house plans to admit a friction fraction of that number next year. >> the president has informed his team that he would like them to accept, at least make preparations to accept at least 10,000 syrian refugees in the next fiscal year. >> one fact not in dispute, trump is still leading dr. ben carson by double digits in the latest national surveys.
voters perhaps chalking his claims up to innocent mistakes, media bias or maybe what trump calls truthful hyperbole in his book "the art of the deal." a hyperbole never hurts. it's an innocent form of exaggeration and an effective form of promotion. trump even telling cnn in july that he embellishes every now and then. >> do you exaggerate? >> and in a rally, donald trump did not take on ted cruz, but he fired plenty of shots at his republican rivals including jeb bush and marco rubio and he doubled down on those claims that he saw people protesting in new jersey on 9/11 as the twin towers fell. sara murray, cnn, myrtle beach, south carolina. >> trump's controversial comments about monitoring mosques after the paris terror attacks has provoked a reaction from one young muslim. she wrote a letter to the president in a facebook post
that's now gone viral. in it, she responded to trump saying in part, i heard you want us to start wearing i.d. badges, so edecided to choose one for myself. i chose the peace sign because it represents my islam. to be clear, trump did not say muslims should wear i.d. damages, but he said there should be after database of muslims living in the u.s. first of all, let me ask you, what went through your mind when you first heard donald trump's comments about muslims being put on databases. >> when i first heard donald trump's comments, i wasn't shocked because i feel like it's something that donald trump would say. but i kind of started simmering a little bit and as time went on, i realized that just because donald trump is saying something that donald trump would say does not make it all right. and i'm not going to be the one to tolerate it.
i wrote it in two minutes. i didn't even edit it. it just came straight from the passion that he ignited from his really negative comments. >> one of things you said that really struck me is being muslim doesn't make me any less american than you are. i just wonder how it's been for you, knowing that there are people who really do think that being muslim is somehow die metticly opposed to being american. >> it's rally tough. i was born and i was raised in this country. there's nothing different than the person that sits next to me on the bus or in my class or the co-worker that i work with.
my religion is between me and myself. you should never impose negative connotations to sublically, so influentially when it's not fair and it's irrational. >> did you think it would get this much attention? >> i had no idea. i honestly -- >> oh, dear. we appear to have lost mawar there, just as she was sharing her reaction to the fact that this facebook post, this message she wrote addressing comments made by donald trump has basically gone viral. a lot of people talking about comments she made in which she basically said she won't apologize for being a muslim and that being a muslim is no different than being american for any other person, but also another line she said, she says she's noless human than donald trump is. it's a very moving post sha that
she wrote to donald trump. sadly we lost her and couldn't complete the conversation. we're glad we could bring her to you and give you some insight into why she decided to write that message to donald trump. during after babe chat, clinton expresses regret to use the term illegal immigrant for undocumented immigrants in a town hall earlier this month. the people at the heart of this are children, parents, family, dreamers. they have names and hopes and dreams that deserve to be respected. still to come here on cnn news room, pope francis is getting ready for another historic trip. this time, his first visit to africa. a live report next. those are live pictures of the holy father's plane as he gets ready to leave and head to africa. we'll continue the conversation on the other side of the break.
>> we want to bring you these images of rome. pope francis there, preparing to leave for an historic trip to africa. this is a pope that's very well travelled. this will be his 11th overseas trip, but his first trip to africa. we're showing you these images there from the airport. consider i considering many questions being asked about this trip, the timing and what security preparations are in place.
the company is in active conflict. thrz a powell noulg fullback ever of this is a crowd for the faithful. will hi consider the environment right now. she joins us live about nairobi, kenya, where the pope will be in a couple of hours. that's the question many have. the stop of the three country tour, can kenyan authorities keep the pope safe. many, many questions about security given everything that's happening around the world right now. >> they said they deployed 10,000 police to nairobi to the various pope will be engaging
and i want to point out a poster that sprung it behind b me, which is a huge giant lifestyle poster of the pope that will be watching over the nairobi euro as he makes his way. hopefully he will get to see that himself. there have been attacks by al shabaab here in kenya in the past. both of which are on his tour, but we are told that he will be kept very well safe in both places. c.a.r. as well, a lot of concerns ahead of his visit there. could they keep him safe there. the united nations is accepteding thousands of extra troops to help bolster their security. paris apparently claiming that they did not know if they could keep the pope safe. but the pope, as you said, is a man of the people. he needs to smell the sheep, according to him. he will be attending awe of those and likely mingling with the crowd, yooz uh say.
>> what do they want to hear from the pope. what did they want his message to contain? . >> weave been speaking to a number of catholics and non-catholics in the slums who want his message to be focused on poverty. he's from the global south, he's well aware of what poverty really is. that's been a major focus of his. he's going to visit a slum here in nairobi and speak to people who have been working in the slum for decades who can tell them what the realities on the ground are. so they're hoping that poverty
will be a major issue that he brings up, as well as lgbt issues. that's going to be a hot topic when he visits uganda. will he address gay rights and thungs like that. uganda has very harsh homosexual laws. those are some of the issues we're expecting them to touch on. >> what is his high point to ken kbra? >> there are a few high points. one irv shoe that's quite poornt is that he's going to meet with interreligious leaders here in kenya. cross border issues with al qaeda and the attacks they have launched both in somalia. that's going to be a hot topic
and muslim leaders have told reporters, isha that they are excited to speak to the youth. that's going to be amazing, we understand that. the preparations for it have looked truly incredible. and something that's also quite unique is that a choir is going to sing to the pope. some members of that choir is from a town called garisa. the pope was not going to initially going to visit kenya, but in april, when the attack on the university occurred, the pope changed his mind and he watched this attack occurring on young people, on nonmuslims, on christians and he decided this was one of the places h ewanted to put on his stop to specifically talk on these issues. >> great to have you with us to give us the lights and to give us a preview of the pope's first
visit to africa. the first stop, of course, kenya. thank you. >> just ahead, safety investigation could be a real buzz kill. for recreational marijuana user ps . tucson. blew an amp.but good nights. sure,music'shy we do this,but it's still our business. we spend days booking gigs, then we've gotta put in the miles to get there. but it's not without its perks. like seeing our album sales go through the roof enough to finally start paying meg's little brother- i mean,our new tour manager-with real,actual money.

>> high levels of toxic chemicals sprayed on plants that eventually end up on store shelves. >> there have been two dozen lotions in pesticides concerns in the past month. calling for pot recalls, quarantines and even a class action lawsuit. we decided to put republics to the test. only state licensed marijuana businesses can submit samples for testing. we found two denver pot shops willing to do just that. tested six different pot samples, flowers, edible and a concentrated wax product. the lab, gobe analytical, a state licensed testing facility, and the go-to lab for tdenver's own pesticide investigations. >> the testing is time consuming and complex, requiring the use of an expensive highly sensitive
instrument called a mass spectrometer. >> it can detect the molecular weight of each pesticide. >> how reliable is it? >> it's extremely reliable. >> five samples came back clean, but the marijuana concentrate did not pass. a staggering level of an insecticide, a neurotoxin. >> farm workers who have breathed these in inadvertently have had severe toxicity symp m symptoms and have been hospitalized with frothing at the mouth, respiratory problems, headaches, neurological problems. >> the state does not allow this pesticide to be used on marijuana, but the epa does allow its use on some crops but on very low levels. on avenue cad goes, it's 1 part per million, apples, 0.4 parts per million. our sample shows the pesticide at 100 parts per million.

♪ >> good evening, everyone. and welcome to the program. we're in new york angry warnings but also calls for calm and cool heads after turkey shoots down a russian war plane near its border with syria. anchor ra says it was violating the air space. russia's president says the plane was flying over syria to launch erair strikes on terror targets. >> i do think that this points to an ongoing problem with the russian operations in the sense
that they are operating very close to a turkish border, and they are going after moderate opposition that are supported by not only turkey but a wide range of countries. >> now, standing should tore shoulder at that press conference was the france president. he is on his first foreign trip since the deadly terror attacks in paris to push for a stronger international alliance to defeat the islamic state. >> translator: the priority is to take back key locations in the hands of those in syria. it is also a matter of urgency to close the border between turkey and syria and prevent terrorists from crossing the border and coming to europe or other places and to take such terrible attacks. >> so what is ahead in the fight against isis? we spoke to nicholas burns who
served as the u.s. ambassador to nato. he joined me earlier from his post at harvard's kennedy school of government about this drama between nato and russia now. ambassador burns, welcome to the program tonight. >> thank you very much. >> this is really an extraordinary day. i mean, the sort of developments that who knew could have happened. first of all, president putin saying downing of russian jet over syria is stab in the back. donald tusk, the eu commission president in this dangerous moment after downing of russian jet, all should remain cool-headed and calm. from your vantage point as a former ambassador to nato, what do you think happened and what is going to happen? >> if the turks can convince the nato countries that the russian jet entered arpgs, i think nato
will have no option but to defend the right. the president ard juan publicly warned the russian government more than 30 days about previous incursions into turkish air space, and they called into the russian ambassador to complain about syrian turkman villages. there's a history here, and i think it's important for the turks to be able to validate what they claimed. as you can imagine, there's another side of the coin. even if the russians did violate the turkish border, and that is a very serious violation in international law, i think the united states and the other nato countries will try to urge both russia and turkey to deescalate the crisis and to have some communications between their militaries so this does not happen again. in other words, to contain the crisis. >> and what does nato need to do
at this meeting. what message does it need to come out to make sure russia doesn't retaliate? do you think that russia might choose to retaliate for this? >> i think retaliation by the russian federation in the immediate term is coming in the form of the cancellation of a visit to ankara tomorrow. there's a big economic relationship. turkey receives about 60% of the natural gas supplies from russia. there are things the russians could do to make their displeasure felt. i'd be very surprised if the russians tried to take ratchet it up from a military perspective. president putin may be cynical and a bully, but he's rational, and he understands that turkey is a core member of the nato alliance, and that what nato is about is the defense of the borders of each of the member states so no one wants to see this escalate, and there will be a lot of work in many capitals
to try to lower the temperature today, but i don't think the nato countries, including the united states, can back away from this core commitment to the turkeys. we do recognize your right to defend your own border in a hostile situation line this. >> just give me a sense of the history of this. because this is obviously a nato country against russia which used to be the soviet union, which used to be the warsaw pact. this is the first time since the 50s that there has been this kind of i said dent, right? >> yes. it's a serious incident. i don't think anyone is trying to minimize that today, chris ya christian. it's always what you want to avoid. i have heard on cnn, some criticism from the russians, much criticism from the russians and others that the turks have not have taken such a harsh
measure, but you have to review the history of the last two months, repeated warnings, public and private, to moscow by the turkish government. do not transgress our border. for my country, particular one like the turks, defending our border, not seeing it violated by a foreign power, is a very important principle, and a very important national interest. >> do you think the turks are trying to make sure that the u.s. doesn't form a coalition or whatever kind of working agreement with the russians on the ground? >> we really do need a leader of this international coalition. i think the only realistic leader at this point is the united states. a leader that would come in and try to deconflict the military operation, say, between help, between turkey and russia, between russia and the united states, but also unify from a political and military point of view, a united front of
countries against the islamic state, and you don't see president obama grasping for that role. you see him laying back a little bit, and it may be that that's what president ho laund has in mind, and with this collision of interests, you need a more effective center to the coalition. i think it has to be our country. >> that's if they can get all their objectives straight, right? >> that's right. you have to have a unifying set of objectives and principles. there's one more thought here. today's incident between turkey and russia underscores a no flight zone in northern syria. it would help defend the turkish border and help civilians under attack by the government. it would stem the flow of refugees out of syria, hillary clinton has suggested that that's the right way to go. i think she's right, and i think
the united states ought to work with turkey and work with the russians and others to see if that's possible. the russian instinct will be to oppose this. after this morning's incident, better to deconflict and better to try to construct an international policy that is helping the people on the ground suffering, the syrian people. >> so much to think about. thank you very much for joining us on this day. >> thank you. >> and, indeed, the french president said the u.s. as the world's only superpower must help intensify the attacks against isis. russia is looking back at the world from its new command center. this new footage just released shows russia's national defense center to be a monster of a war room manned by a huge staff with a huge screen to keep an eye on the country's conflicts. after a break, narrowing the focus, the photographers,

>> welcome back to the program. for nations waging war to domestic violence, conflict is all around us. >> you have a grown man, unarmed, running around someone else's war zone, taking pictures. explain that to a child and see if it makes any sense to them. >> that is veteran war photographer, in conflict, a new mini serious that premiers today. if there's a major publication, these he's been published in it. and while he's been covering the most extreme violence in foreign lands, donna ferarto has photographered domestic violence, a husband beating his wife, a woman too scared to
press charges. >> when he went to hit her again, i grabbed his arm and said what the hell are you doing? you're going to hurt her. stop it. what are you doing? he threw he off and said look, she's my wife. >> this is conflict through the eyes of those who cover it. both on the battle field and at home. the photographers join me now in the studio. welcome to your both. >> thank you. >> the little clips we played are quite dramatic because it kind of sums up everything. aris you said how could you explain what you're doing, running toward violence, doing all of this, and you have just had your own child. how has that affected and impacted how you plan to continue your work? >> well, it's certainly made me think long and hard about rushing to the front line of any war zoene, and i think maybe my time is running short on that
kind of thing. >> do you feel you're going to keep doing it? >> i don't at this point. i can't say what will happen in the future, but it doesn't seem worth it now that i have someone completely dependent on me. >> donna, aris has said he doesn't feel pictures change the world or make it a better place. what do you feel as the witness of some of the worst kind of violence, the domestic violence which we've seen that goes on in so many homes against women? >> i believe that photographs have the power to change many things. change laws, change the minds of society, change people, and so i feel that a photographer has to really dig in there and spend a lot of time, and put more of themselves into the photographs. it's not just about go in, take pictures and then move away. i spend, usually, two or three years at a time with my subjects. >> we saw that clip where this
couple who you were covering then turned violent and the man said, hey, it's my property, it's my wife, but there's also an amazing sound bite from the series that i want to play where you were covering another instance, and the son was -- he intervened to defend his mother. let's just play that. >> when i took that picture, i was in a darkroom. i couldn't see anything. i was focusing in the dark, calculating the distance to his voice. when i heard the to him say i hate you for hitting my mother, they were the strongest words that i'd ever heard anybody say. >> that's pretty powerful. what impact did that have on you, and you also have, i think a teenage daughter. >> i'm actually a grandmother now, and -- >> who would have known? >> i started this work when i was pregnant with fanny, so that
was some 33 years ago, and now my grandson lives in the house, and everything is about this kind of work and photography, so -- >> you're done a hot line, right? >> i had a hot line going -- in my house, yes, and everybody who was living in the home was part of that reception for women who were calling all over the world. i know that it's really hard for women to get the help and support that they need when they're in a very dangerous situation. sometimes the shelters are not -- they just have a recording on the line, so women are not getting the attention that they need, and so i would usually intervene and call the shelters directly. >> so it's real activism. tell me, airs, because it's two sides of the same coin, you and donna covering different things and with different feelings about the kind of impact. your father was killed.
he was a war photographer, and you inherited his cameras. >> uh-huh. >> you must have inherited a mission as well. >> without a doubt. not long after he was the killed, i was 15, i knew that's what i needed to do, and at that point, i had much more of an ideal logical track that i was traveling on, and i think years of doing war coverage got me a little bit jaded, a little bit -- a loss of empathy and hope, and then i kind of decided that maybe this isn't the healthiest thing for me to be doing. >> how difficult -- i mean, i guess for people like us who are strong and empowered, we would have no hesitation reporting domestic abuse or whatever it might be, but the numb of people who you've witnessed being beaten up who think it's their fault or who just simply won't stand up for themselves. >> it's hard to stand up for themselves when society doesn't back them up. when the courts don't really
understand, and the judges will always side with the abusers. >> is that really the case? >> that's really the case. and -- but i think, why i'm so hopeful with every picture that i take is because i believe that these stories are about breaking the cycle of abuse, and that's why i get so deeply involved with every family. and i work with the children as well. it's -- it's everybody that i want to see changing. and i'm there with them for years and years and years. the woman, elizabeth, i've been photographing her for 33 years. and i know all of her children very well. >> so you're a little bit like a therapist too? >> i'm a social activist. >> what do you hope this series will say to the people who watch it? because there are lots of photographers who are profiled and a range of different ideas about their mission and about what they think they're doing in
the world. >> i think it's important to show the different points of view from different photographers, and the work is different. what donna is doing is different from what i've done. i respect here work very much, but it's another ball game. i've been working on front lines, and she's, she's a social activist. and i think that there's a great value in what she's doing, but -- >> what was some of the most difficult places that you worked? >> i think that iraq was probably the most difficult. access was incredibly difficult. the threat of kidnapping was very high. it was just -- and the heat. it was a very difficult place to work. >> and when we see isis and all of the horrors going on now, we can barely even cover that war. >> we've seen what's happened to journalists who have tried. it's horrible. it's not like it used to be. >> it's a different battle
field, really, for all of us. aris, donna, thank you very joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us. >> after a break, we also focus in on a sad story. imagining an ancient melting pot emptied by war. the journey of aleppo's last jews. that's next. ♪ ♪ how else do you think he gets around so fast? take the reins this holiday and get the mercedes-benz you've always wanted during the winter event. hurry, offers end soon.

hello, everyone. you are watching "cnn newsroom." welcome to our viewers in the united states, and welcome back to those of you watching from all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. let's update you on the top stories right now. first let's get you to paris where police are looking into islamic radicalization among transport workers. a source familiar with the investigation says monitoring of islamic transport workers has been going on for a couple of years. >> vladimir putin says that turkish downing of a russian war plane is a stab in the back that
will have serious consequences. turkey says the plane ignored a series of warnings and was shot down after violating turkish air space. moscow insists the jet remained other syrian. >> tunisia as declared a state of emergency after an explosion rocked a bus. at least 15 people were killed. a curfew is in place and authorities are investigating the event as a terror attack. >> we turn now to anger and frustration in chicago after police release a video showing the shooting death of a black teenager by a white officer. >> the video is very disturbing. in this dash cam video, laquan mcdonald is shown going down a police car holding a knife.
>> an officer opens fire, and mcdonald falls to the ground. the teen was shot 16 times. >> a number of shots were while the teen was still on the ground. a judge ordered police to release the video. the officer is now being charged with nermurder. >> we are changing the full measure of justice this demands. the judge's order that the video must be released certainly moved up the timing of our announcement, but it did not in any way dictate our decision to charge this defendant with first degree murder. >> demonstrators marched through the streets following the release, and at one point protesters blocked a major interstate for about 20 minutes. the demonstrations have been peaceful for the most part. we are joined now from new
york to talk about this. a cnn legal analyst and a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor. paul, you and i just sat and watched the two minutes of the footage. it's very disturbing but how unusual is it that it look more than a year for the chicago police department to release this video to the public? >> it's extraordinarily disturbing video, and i'm shocked, frankly, at the amount of time it took chicago law enforcement authorities to release this tape. and i'm also surprised at how long it took for them to decide what charges to be filed in this case. they only announced earlier today, really, that this was going to be a first degree murder case against the officers. i think it's unusual that there would be this long a delay. >> and you have concern, currently, over how people in chicago will react. there's anger and frustration. it's understandable when you see the video, but doesn't something
like this also make the case for dash cams and body cams in police departments all over the country so there is no question? >> it certainly does make the case, but ironically, it also suggests that even when you have cameras in place, justice does not necessarily occur siftlwift. i watched this tape with you, errol, and it looks pretty simple. the man was down on the ground, shots were fired into him. i shouldn't say man. he was only 17 years old. he doesn't threatening the officer when the shots were fired. the final shots were fired. so that's not a complex fact pattern. for it to take this long to reach a decision about whether a crime was committed and what specifically to charge is surprising. >> and this incident took place last year. since then we've seen multiple dash cam videos of police using accessive force when it comes to unarmed black men specifically.
i'm wondering amid this conversation and a debate, could this incident in this video be a kind of turning point for those who are so quick to defend the police no matter what, and we should make the point that the officer charged here, jason van dyke was the only officer to discharge his gun. one single bad apple can ruin the perception for police officers everywhere. >> there has been an enormous controversy in the united states, particularly about the impe excessive use of force by police officers. in fairness to the police, many of the cases, a grand juror found the ferguson case, he acted in self-defense. there were other cases where the cops acted improperly and sometimes were not indicted. sometimes they were. but this case, i think will stir enormous controversy, and it will, you know, african americans will have to say why does it take so long for there to be justice in a case where
the facts seem to clear? now, perhaps the prosecutor will have some explanation as to why it took so long to resolve this matter, at least in terms of deciding what to charge. a trial has to follow. the other thing is one reason the cases take a long time is because prosecutors are trying to determine what's the appropriate charge, should it be first degree murder. should it be something less like manslaughter because the officer was acting some sort of emotional distress when he fired the shots as opposed to planned, intentional murder. >> we appreciate you joining us for some of your incite. our cnn legal analyst joining us. >> thank you. >> and the mayor of chicago is calling for peace in the city. he condemned the officer's actions and said the release of the video can be a moment to build bridges of understanding rather than a barrier of misunderstanding. >> we need, as a city, so get to
a point, where young men in our community and in parts of our city, see an officer and don't just see an officer with a uniform and a badge but they see him as a partner in helping them reach their full potential. and they see in that officer, a mentor, a little league coach, a leader in the church and in their community, which they are. but we also have to get to a place as a city where officers who patrol communities in our city see a young man not as a potential problem and a risk but they also see in that young man, as an individual who is worthy of their protection and their potential. >> elsewhere in the u.s., authorities in minneapolis have three men in custody linked to a shooting near a black lives matter protest on monday. >> that shooting left five people with nonlife threatening injuries. and police say they are still
looking for other suspects. a witness describes the moment shots rang out. >> it doesn't make sense. we wasn't here to harm nobody. we were just asking questions and a man just opened fire, and he didn't say stop or freeze. he just led us up the street and opened fire on us. >> the shooting happened at a demonstration for this man, jamal clark. protesters want videos of his shooting released. police in europe are on a man hunt for a suspect involved with the november 13th terror attacks. prosecutors say they think this man sal la salaam may have driven attackers. the search for him has stretched to several countries. supporters in belgium may be helping him avoid capture, sources say. >> the french president is set
to meet with angela merkel in the coming hours. on tuesday he was at the white house asking president obama to put more pressure on isis. >> we've never forgotten how the french people stood with us after 9/11, and today we stand with you. we cannot and we will not succumb to fear. for can we allow fear to divide us. that's how terrorists win. we cannot give them the victory of changing how we go about our lives. >> translator: against daesh, we need a joint response. france and the united states join together to bring the response fpt it's about taking out their financing, hunting down their leaders, dismantling their networks and taking back the land they currently control. >> and things are getting back
to normal in the belgian capital. they announced the partial reopening of the subways and schools have reopened in brussels. alexandra field is outside one of the schools and joins us live. brussels has been on a virtual lock down but now they're opening schools. that has some parents concerned and confused. talk to us about that and what people are supposed to make of it. >> translato . >> reporter:. right. the reality is you can't lock down a city indefinitely. you can deploy resources to help people more safe and help them feel more safe. we have been talking to students and parents as they return to work and return to school this morning. some of them are telling us that they don't feel they have more answers or a greater sense of security than they did just a couple of days ago when this city went into lockdown, but they do understand the necessity of getting back to life as
normal. so what you're seeing around the city this morning is hundreds of military personnel who have been deployed to help secure the metro system. there are hundreds of police officers securing the schools, and at this school behind me, there are private security guards posted at the doors. we're talking to students who say they're returning to school but life will feel different. that's what they'll be talking about this morning still. they thought it was important to try to get back to normal. a director said life has changed for the students here. he has 2200 students who go to the school behind me. he's not sure how many will come. they felt it was important to follow the direction of authorities and open up the school and provide safety and security resources they can at this difficult time. >> and so as you say, this is an effort to get back to normal. there isn't really a sense that any of this danger has subsided, is there?
>> reporter:. right, certainly no resolution. the city remains under the highest level of security. the interior minister said the threat level will remain at the highest point until monday, at least, and the operations are still ongoing to try to get out any people who could be connected to the terrorist cell that plotted and carried out the attacks in paris. they continue to search for one man. there's also an international arrest warrant for the man seen on camera for a gas station two days before the attacks in paris with salah. that's another person authorities are looking for. belgian authorities say their involvement has netted five arrests and they are still continuing wok for two men who are presumed to be armed and dangerous. >> a live report outside one of the schools in brussels.
now having to move forward and on and find a sense of normalcy, even though the danger has not subsided. many thanks to alexandra. >> in france, families and loved ones are dwining the heart breaking task of laying the victims to rest. >> communities are turning out in large numbers to pay their respects and to say a final fair well to those who lost their lives in the attacks. john bitterman that has story. >> reporter: across france, the slow tolling of funeral bells has been going on for days. the scene, repeated again and again. grieving parents, grieving lovers, grieving neighbors. the stories are heart wrenching. mary ann and anna, two sisters decided to meet up for a friday night in paris. at 8:00 their mother sent them a text. i love you both, she said.
we do too, little mother of love, they responded. an hour and a half later, they were dead. the mostly young victims of the attacks makes the mourning especially hard. lives of promise ended far too early. and the victims seem to come from all over the country and all walks of life. the funeral for a young professor of art, his students turned up at his funeral. the school says it will replace them, but the students say he's irreplaceabl irreplaceable. a local senator turned out for the funeral of a 24-year-old. her god father gave one of the eulogies. the 13th of november, he said, innocence came across monstrosi monstrosity. kara struck sweetness. on and on, the funerals have gone. 130 must be mourned. all of france is paying its l t

>> welcome back. barack obama is backing turkey in its downing of a russian war plane. president obama spoke with his turkish counterpart by phone expressing u.s. and nato support for ankara. >> while acknowledging they don't have all the information just yet, he said turkey has the right to defend its country and air space. earlier i speak to the former member of the u.s. joint chiefs of staff about how this affects the syrian conflict. >> the idea of what they call air space deconfliction is really coming to the forefront now, and for the layperson, the very important aspect of this is to make sure that planes, first of all, don't bump into each other, but also that they don't
get shot down. now we have a situation where with the russian su 24 being shot down, because it violated turkish air space, that shows that there was really no means of notifying the russian pilots or they chose to ignore the notifications that the turks said they gave them. either way, it's a dangerous environment for all of the people that are flying in this area, all the different coalition partners as well as, quite frankly, the russians and the syrians. but it also shows the the fact that we really need to have this mechanism of control, of air space deconfliction which would also be a mechanism to show that we have a means of military control for an effort against isis to make sure that we're actually prosecuting that war effort. we don't have that right now. >> joining me now is david road. he's a global analyst and an t
investigative reporter. vladimir putin is warning of serious consequences in the wake of the shooting down of that russian plane by turkey. what does he likely mean by that in how might he respond, do you think, and how might this escalate in an already volatile region in. >> i think the most dangerous thing would be another provocation by russian jets. this is not something new in terms of what happening in turkey. there's been dozens of incidents have russian planes have moved in close to nato air space, and nato jets have scrambled to meet them. he can push it on the ground in syria. i think that's less likely. i think he will -- maybe he could expand the russian military presence, maybe the number of planes in syria by backing the asaad regime, he's embarrassing the turkish
president who talked about removing asaad from power very quickly, and i think in the long term, there's a lot of economic ties between russia and turkey, particularly the energy front. so he could, i think, create economic problems, energy problems, gas price problems were turkey in the long term as a way to punish turkey for what happened today. >> interestingly, vladimir putin claims the the downed plane was targeting isis. there's no evidence of that given where that plane was located. so what was that russian plane doing before it was shot down? >> that's a great question. and the area where it was shot down, a lot of the population are ethnic turkmans, people of turkish descent who leave inside syria, and they feel an affinity for turkman, and there were reports the russian planes were attacking them. they are not members of isis.
so, again, it's a provocation. if you believe the turkish version of events that the russian plane would be attacking ethnic turkman villages, that's going to have them feel the need to respond. i think putin plays a long game. i think he'll back off. he's good at pushing the boundaries and stepping back and waiting for his to opponents to pay less attention. so i would be surprised if he efbs lates immediately, but it's a very dangerous game he's playing. >> and we're watching it closely. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. and this is one of the top stories on our site right now. there's more analysis and updated information on the downed war plane and what it could mean for the overall conflict. that's at cnn.com. barack obama honored 17 americans on tuesday with the medal of freedom. it was given to hollywood and sports legends, civil rights
activists and many pioneers in their fields. surely you'll see some familiar faces. steven spielberg, james taylor, and willie mays. take a listen to how mr. obama honored some of them. >> today we celebrate some extraordinary people. innovators, artists, and leaders who contribute to america's strength as a nation. born in brooklyn to a middle class jewish family, i didn't know you were jewish, barbara -- >> [ laughter ] >>. >> i'm proud to call the next honoree a friend as well. the truth is, many people say that about james taylor. that's what happens when you spend decades telling people, just call out my name and i'll come running.
in his career, he's introduced us to killer sharks, he's taken us to neverland, jurassic park, but also the beaches of normandy and concentration camps. despite redefining the word prolific, a spielberg movie is still a spielberg movie. someone is calling him to make a pitch right now. >> he's quick. >> a comedian and chief. >> we want to say congratulations to the golden state warriors. they beat the lakers for their 16th victory. >> the world champions are the first time in the nba to start the season with the 16 consecutive wins. 111 to 77. and we are back in just a few minutes with more cnn news room. we'll have all the top stories

a downed fighter jet. now russia responds. moscow sends a navy attack ship with orders to destroy enemy targets. >> protests in chicago, tensions simmer after the release of a video showing a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. also ahead, heavy security and high alerts at the brussels metro and schools spring back to life after days on terror lockdown. hello and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. this is "cnn newsroom." the diplomatic rhetoric over the
turkish downing of a russian jet bomber is escalating with cold war overtones. >> russia's warning there will be serious consequences for the incident. they suggested the possible consolation of joint projects and turk irk companies losing their place in russian markets. a missile cruiser is now heading to the shore zone all potentially dangerous targets will be destroyed. these images show the wreckage of the jet in syria. >> they violated turk ish air space. moscow insists it never left syrian air space. vladimir putin called it a stab in the back. >>. >> translator: of course, this is not something that we wanted to see happen. we wanted to witness, this is not something that needs to be
applauded. however, we suffer the pain of having to face a situation such as this one. >> we stand in solidarity with turkey and support territorial integrity of our nato ally, turkey. i look forward to further contact between syria and moscow, and i call for calm and deescalation. >> and we are covering all angles of this with ben wedeman in iraq and ian lee in turkey. we want to go to istanbul where ian lee is standing by. it's understood the plane was only in turkish air space for a short time, but this wasn't the first time russian planes flew into turkish air space. what is turkey saying about this? >> reporter: well, that's right, rosemary. russian planes have violated turkish air space before. turkey has warned the russians
in the past about violations of their air space. when it comes to this incident in particular, the plane was in turkish air space, according to the data that we've seen, according to, also, the u.s. military for less than 30 seconds. not a lot of time. what we're hearing from the turks is initially they didn't know the nationality of this plane, but two turkish f-16s shot it down. two pilots ejected from it. now, we're hearing that one of the pilots was killed while they were coming down. there is video of rebel fighters shooting at that, or what it looks like shooting at these pilots as they dejected. you can hear one say stop shoot, that they should try to capture. the fate of the other pilot is unknown at this point, but i think it's interesting to note that turkey has said that they're going to try their best
to secure the safety of that pilot, the other pilot whose fate is unknown, and we have heard a more conciliatory tone from the turkish president who has said that they have tried 23in the past, their best efforts to avoid this, and that this does not indicate any animosity on the part of any country. >> and ian, we know president obama spoke withered juan. what all did they say to each other? >> reporter: well, the united states has said that the u.s. and nato firmly back turkey and their decision to protect their national sovereignty and they support them in this decision j but when you're looking at the statements made by the two presidents, both are fairly similar in calling for a deescalation of tensions, and as
we heard just recently from president putin, they are furious over the downing of their jets, and this could have some real consequences going forward. so right now, the countries in the international community as well as turkey, everyone is trying to deescalate making sure no other actions are taken. >> all right. our ian lee bringing us up to late from istanbul in turkey with reaction as well. many thanks to you. ben wedeman is near the front lines of the fight against isis in iraq. he joins us now from irbil. the fact is turkey is a member of nato and in some ways has the backing to the states. so what kind of consequences can russia really deliver? >> reporter: well, i think beyond rhetoric, you have to look at where the relationship is actually not in such bad
shape which is the economy, and that is where you can see the impact, perhaps, of the souring relations between ankara and moscow. hundreds of thousands of russian tourists regularly vacation in turkey, and we heard lav lorovle russian foreign minister announce he was cancelling his trip to turkey today and he was encouraging russians to kabcanc their holiday trips to trurkey. there's the possibility as we heard from the prime minister that perhaps some of the joint projects, some of the economic relations could suffer as well. so it's not necessarily in the military's fear, so to speak, where we could see signs of that deteriorating relationship. >> as we look at the civil war
itself, there are some odd alliances there. turkey seems most interested in targeting syrian kurds. that is a group the u.s. sees as an ally in the fight against isis. could that be an issue in the long run? >> reporter: well, it already is an issue between washington and ankara. the americans aren't at all happy about the hostile attitude of the turks toward the syrian kurds, but turkey has a decade's old concern about kurdish separatists in turkey itself. now, turkey has been one of the earliest and strongest supporters for the uprising of syrian president bashar al assad, and has at best turned a blind eye to some of the people it's allowed over it's 822 kilometer border with syria, and, for instance, when turkey announced it was joining to war
against isis, it promptly began to factor kurds in syria, and, therefore, even though washington and ankara are both key members of nato, they don't see eye to eye on syria at all, and that's one of the complications of this complicated conflict. one observer wrote that all of this is going on between turkey, russia, the united states, on the sidelines that the ones who are really benefitting from this is isis. >> very good point. ben wedeman live for us this morning in northern iraq in irbil. ben, thanks. >> all right. now to france and disturbing news of a very close call. police now say a second wave of terror attacks could have been just hours away when officers raided an apartment in a paris suburb one week ago. >> take a look at this image.
police say this man, and another suspect were plotting a suicide attack on the financial district of the french capital. >> and max foster has much more on this and joins us live now from paris. max, the people of paris have learned about this other attack that was planned this time in the financial district. how are pa reegss reacted to that news, as well as word that there is another paris attacker on the loose? >> reporter: yeah. mohamed abrini. they're searching for them. they believe he drove the car for the attackers and dropped them off at at least the stadium. he was photographed at a fuel station two days before the attacks with one who is still on the run and believed to be the eighth attacker. the investigation certainly continues in terms of that, and they're trying to find abdul
salaam. in terms of the possible followup tactic, we've heard from the paris prosecutor that the ring leader was planning another attack on the financial district, possibly hours away from the time he was killed in the apartment. we don't have any information about why they think a second attack was in the offing, but the paris prosecutor is pretty firm that another attack was lined up, and that does explain, perhaps, why there was a suicide vest in the apartment when they went in, rosemary. >> and also, i wanted to talk to you about the situation as far as the diplomatic talks. we know that the french president is going to meet with angela merkel. he's also going to be meeting
with the russian president, putin. there's really difficult discussions to be had, and in the mix is the downing of the russian plane in turkey. >> and that's really changed the nature of all of these discussions. the french president was due to be traveling around the world, and meeting super powers and trying to create a grand alliance against isis in syria. and now the context of that has changed completely because of this downed aircraft in syria which you've been describing there. so now it seems as though washington is more in transgent, will not be being as close with russian as the french president was hoping. that seems less likely. president obama making it clear yesterday he can only work with russia if they guarantee they'll only attack isis positions in russia and not other position,
rebel positions, for example, who are fighting asaad. we're going to actually follow -- we have a piece from jim acosta who is at the white house as the meeting was taking place. i think i'm right on that. otherwise, we're going to go to another piece from martin savidge who was actually reporting yesterday on this other attacker that was on the run. >> the authorities launching a new man hunt for a second suspect believed to be connected to the paris friday the 13th attacks. police say mohamed abrini drove one of the members to the targets. abrini is captured on this security camera at a french gas station two days before the terrorist strike. he pictured with the other most wanted man. the search expanded.
once again, police came up empty. back in france came new and frightening revelations. according to the paris prosecutor, the suspected ring leader, abdelhamid abaaoud was -- >> the two terrorists, abaaoud, and the man found with him in the apartment, were planning an attack which consisted of blowing themselves up on wednesday, november 18th, or on thursday, november 19th. in the business district of la defense. >> reporter: the plot was foiled, nlgt or thes say when french authorities carried out a raid last wednesday. it may explain why those inside the apartment appeared to be armed and ready as authorities moved in. the results fire fight lasted an hour and nearly destroyed the building. abaaoud was killed in the assault. police say his cell phone delivered a wealth of
information, including called he's believed to have made during the friday the 13th attacks, possibly directing them. the phone also revealed abaaoud's movements that night indicating he may have returned to the scenes of the massacres. nerves remain on edge in paris. several metro straations closed and several evacuations triggered by information authorities say they received. >> that was martin savidge reporting there. we're joined by a former colonel in the french legion. this was in the context of the paris attacks that martin was reporting about. it's going to completely overshadowed by the downed aircraft over syria. >> i think it's -- an event of exceptional gravity that
occurred yesterday. it illustrates, the game of trrk's president. turkey is a member of nato, but also a support for daesh, and that's a main problem for me. >> is that confirmed? i mean, that's often what we hear from the ground, that they haven't been aggressive against daesh as many people have hoped. >> i think what happened yesterday morning is premedit e premeditated against the future alliance between the east and west, and that mustn't -- we have to make the syrians between russia and united states and nato and france, of course, we have to build up this which is an accessory to eradicate daesh.
it is not, obviously, the interest of turkey, which, once, again, is a support for daesh. he has a lot of interests against syria, against baa shar regime, but also economic interests, strategic interests against the opportunity of the alliance between the east of the west. >> asaad and the regime and opposing some of the same people isis opposes is different from supporting isis on the ground, and there's no evidence that they are doing that. >> i think there are some islamist groups not only isis, for instance, al nusra, that france supported for a long months, maybe some years. they are, altogether, against,
you know, against baa shar regime j b regime, but for their own interest, i think 80% of the bombing made against isis was, in fact, against kurds who are fighting isis. why? that's really the major question we have to answer. >> okay. thank you very much for joining us. be watching that closely. >> indeed. and max foster joining us there from a wet paris on this morning. it's about 9:17 in the morning. and we'll join you again soon, max. thank you so much. >> protests on the streets of chicago after police release video of white officer shooting a black teen more than a year after it took place. >> an 18-year-old young man die
in such a violent manner is deeply disturbing and i have absolutely no doubt this video will tear at the hearts of all people in chicago. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed.
anger and frustration in chicago after police release a video showing the shooting death of a black teen by a white officer. >> the video is disturbing. laquan mcdonald is seen walking toward a patrol car. >> he walks away from the officers. and seconds laefrt, and officer opens fire. you see him falling to the ground. >> demonstrators marched through the streets of chicago. at one point they blocked a major interstate for about 20 minutes. most of the demonstrations have been peaceful. >> rosa flores as more on the investigation. >> reporter: the video is shocking. a white chicago police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. the deadly confrontation captured on a police dash cam more than a year ago led to a
first degree murder charge by officer jason van dyke. >> this officer went overboard, and he abused his authority, and i don't believe the force was necessary. >> reporter: police say 17-year-old laquan mcdonald was shot and killed while holding a knife after slashing a tire. van dyke was one more eight officers on scene that night but prosecutes say he was the only one to shot, opening fire only six seconds after arriving. >> his partner related that he could hear mcdonald struggling to breathe. he told van dyke to hold his fire. >> reporter: the dash cam shows mcdonald's body being riddled with bullets. the autopsy confirms the teen was hit 16 times. >> van dyke's partner reported there was a brief pause in the
shots when he looked at van dyke and saw he was preparing to reload his weapon. >> this is a case that needs to be tried in a courtroom. it needs to be tried in a courtroom where the rules of evidence are in play and the constitution is in play. this is a case that my client should be afforded, the same presumption of innocence that every other american -- >> reporter: the mcdonald family received a $5 million settlement but did not want the video released. in a civil suit, a judge ordered the video should be made public. now community leaders and the city of chicago are on edge, preparing for outrage and protests. >> will we use this episode in this moment to build bridges that bring us together as a city or will we allow it to erect
barriers that tear us apart as a city. >> cnn, chicago. >> we are joined now from new york to talk about this by a cnn trial counsel, a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor. paul, you and i just sat and watched the two minutes of the footage. it's very disturbing. but how unusual is it that it took more than a year for the chicago police department to release this video to the public in. >> it's extraordinarily disturbing video, and i'm shocked, frankly, at the amount of time it took chicago law enforcement authorities to release this tape. and i'm also surprised at how long it took for them to decide what charges to be filed in this case. they only announced earlier today, really, that this was going to be a first degree murder case against the officer. so, you know, i think it's very unusual that there would be this long a delay. >> and you have concern,
currently, over how people in chicago will react. there's anger and frustration. it's understandable when you see the video. but doesn't something like this also make the case for dash cams and body cams in police departments all over the country so there is no question in. >> it certainly does make the case, but ironically, it also suggests that even when you have cameras in place, justice does not necessarily occur swiftly. i mean, i watch this tape with you, errol, and it looks pretty simple. you know, the man was down on the ground, shots were fired into him. i shouldn't say man. he was only 17 years old. he wasn't threatening the officer when the shots were fired. the final shots were fired. so that's not a complex fact pattern. for it to take this long to reach a decision about whether a crime was committed and what to charge is certainly surprising. >> and this incident took place last year. since then we've seen multiple
eyewitness videos, body cams, dash cam videos of police using excessive force when it comes to unarmed black men specifically. amid this conversation and a debate, because people are divided over this, would this incident and this video be a kind of turning point for those who were so quick to defend the police no matter what, and we should make the point that the officer charged here, officer jason van dyke was the only officer to discharge his weapon. so it also underscored that one bad apple can ruin the perception for police officers everywhere. >> well, this has been an enormous controversy in the united states, particularly about the preexcessive use of f police officers. many of the cases, like the ferguson case, a grand jury found that police officer acted in self-defense. there have been other cases where the cops acted improperly and sometimes were indicted, sometimes they weren't indicted.
this case, i think will stir controversy. african americans will have to say why does it take so long for there to be justice in a case where the facts seem so clear. why did it take so long to resolve this matter, at least in terms of deciding what to charge. remember, a trial has to follow. >> we appreciate you joining us for some of your incite. paul, our cnn legal analyst joining us. >> thank you. >> and cnn teamed up with the kaiser family foundation to find out how americans feel about race in the united states. more than 1900 americans were surveyed from august into october. most of those polled regardless of race, said racial tensions increased in the past ten years. >> take a look at some of the numbers. the survey found that 49 % found racism is a big problem and 33%
said it's somewhat of a problem. the study also revealed an increase in the number of people who considered racism is a big problem compared to four years ago when 28 % of people felt that way. >> blacks and hispanics use racism as a bigger problem compared to whites. two thirds say it's a big problem compared to 43% of whites surveyed. >> brussels gets back to normal. the latest ahead in a live report.
viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. let's update you on our top stories right now. nato's secretary general is urgiurg urging calm. moscow insists the jet remained over syria. the russian president says the incident will have, quote, serious consequences. >> protesters march through chicago after dash cam video showed a white office shooting a black teen. 17-year-old laquan mcdonald was carrying a knife when an officer shot him 16 times. that officer has been charged with first degree murder. french police say now not only averted a second wave of terrorist attacks. they say two terrorists were
planning a suicide wombombing a both men were killed in the raid. >> it is mid morning in brussels where schools are reopening after a four-day lock down. officials say they want the belgian capital to return to normal, but it will remain at the highest terror alert level for now, at least. let's bring in alexandra field who joins us from brussels at the front of one of the schools. the terror alert level is still at its highest and, yet, the schools are being opened. many parents concerned about that. what is the justification, according to authorities there? >> reporter: look, some people won't be able to square the fact that the terror alert level remains at the highest level and the fact that schools are being opened. the students and parents coming out to schools reopening have decided to put their faith in authorities who are monitoring
the situation and decided today is the appropriate day to open the schools. they added it with an added layer of security. foot patrols from police officers who are surrounding schools throughout the city. we also know there are hundreds of members of military securing the metro system as that reopens this morning. i spoke to students heading into the journalism school behind me who say they realize life is different than it was before the paris attacks. they say they live now with a greater level of fear and anxiety. if this is the new normal, it's time to return to it. one woman said she looked at her younger brother as he left the house. she could see the fear in his eyes. she was saddened she didn't have more answers for him. at this point people are feeling they have stayed out of public places for the most part and let the authorities proceed with their raids, trying to root out
any people people connected to the terrorist attacks. they feel they have no other choice but to get out and try to return to the sense of normal. >> and that sense of normal, this new norm you mentioned when you talked to that student, is this what it's going to be going forward? because the danger hasn't subsided, has it? but are people going to have to get used to this heightened security on the streets? >> reporter: right. nobody can come out and say all clear when people know they live under this heightened threat level, and you heard from the minister of the enteeron on monday when they said the operations are ongoing. the fact is you have salah still at large. there's an international man hunt and an international arrest warrant for mohamed abrini. he was recorded at a gas station with salah two days before the paris attacks. they were seen in a car that was
used in the attacks in paris just two days later. we know there are still suspects at large that police are very much trying to find. we've also heard from belgian investigators that they've made five arrests for their part of the investigation. people are aware that these man hunts are ongoing, but what they can do right now is simply get back out here. >> it is a real concern, for sure, but normalcy, at least brings some comfort for people to get back to their normal routine. aleck san alexandra joining us from one of the schools opening today along with other schools opening across the city. >> police in paris are looking into islamist radicalization among the city's transportation workers. it involves employees at the bus and rail services and the airport. max foster joins us with more on that, the idea that people were radicalized within the transportation services. it's quite alarming, max.
>> reporter: it's frightening, and a source saying for two years they've been monitoring the radicalization of workers on the buses and the trains and at the airports in the you need a particular item to get onto to the runway, and ten people had them taken away. it shows the types of investigations they are trying to keep. no one has been fired or taken off their jobs because of issues about radicalizations, but in the terms of the latest on the investigation, we're now learning that a second attack was thwarted. the ring leader of the paris attacks apparently planning on attacking the financial district. he's department editor and chief of prais match, you are watching
the paris prosecutor as he gave the details. what stood out? >> what really stood out is the behavior after or during the attacks. let's put it into perspective. abaaoud is a well-known high figure in the isis network. he's had four page story in an isis magazine back in february 2015 showing himself in the light, nice pictures. we've tracked him ever since february, 2014 with a video, the first video that was taken of him in syria. he's a well-known figure. to see that this guy is able during the attack at the time that the police special forces is acting, you know, against his comrades, to be spotted in the metro and what we know from what the prosecutor told us, that he
was among the crowd. let's remember your viewers, that at the time it's a time where the french president went there. >> he would have been in the crowd. >> he could have been in the crowd. and apparently he was moving around, taking the subway, meeting a guy in the subway, and getting out of the subway close to here, and then apparently he made his way back to where he had a reunion, and that's where he got killed. now, to imagine that this guy was so easily here could be, you know, we know that he was bragging about going back and forth between belgium and syria. he was moving around almost freely. he's a well known isis figure that was able to move around freely in paris. that's a breach of security. there are questions to be asked. and they told us they were planning an attack on a major
shopping mall at a place i can see from my home. there has been rumors about them attacking, planning attacks on shopping malls for a long time. we know that, and around paris, there's a lot of shopping malls. it's an easy target. we also know that his cousins, his cousin, the one who was killed also, to find him some suits. so what they were for? maybe they wanted to act as security guard. you know, moving there, taking their shift, probably hiding there, waiting for the shopping mall to open. they had two targets there, the shopping mall and the policeatipolice station, and apparently abaaoud was supposed to be a suicide bomber there 250 too. >> apparently they thwarted the attack. >> yes. >> thank you for joining us this
morning. >> we'll connect with you later, max. thank you. >> tunisia is under a state of emergency. >> at least 15 people were killed. authorities are now investigating this as a terror attack. vladimir putin is weighing his options after turkey shot down a fighter jet along the border with syria. next, we'll ask cnn global affairs analyst what's likely to happen. stay with us. narrator: when you see this truck,
it means another neighbor is going to sleep better tonight because they went to sleep train's ticket to tempur-pedic event. through thanksgiving weekend, save up to $300 on the cooling comfort of tempur-breeze. plus, get up to 4 years interest free financing. sleep risk free with sleep train's money back guarantee, and of course, same day delivery. are you next? sleep train's ticket to tempur-pedic event ends sunday. ♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪ >> today's loss. >> vladimir putin there his blunt condemnation of the downing of a russian fighter jet while accusing turkey of being an accomplice to isis terrorists, mr. putin warned of
serious consequences. >> the russian prime minister hinted it puts joint projects and the turkish company place in russia in jeopardy. >> we have this information just in to cnn. the turkish president is defending his decision. he says the fighter jet was in turkish airplanes but the wreckage landed mainly in syria. >> translator: we cannot allow our bordered to be breached continuously, and we are against our rights to be crushed. we cannot remain silent to all that. we do not have any intention to escalate this matter. all we are caring for is defending our security and the
love and rights of our brothers. >> given the ominous warnings, the question becomes what will president putin actually do. we spoke with our global affairs analyst, david rhode. >> i think the most dangerous thing is provocation by russian jets. this is not something new. there's been dozens of incidents have russian planes have sort of moved close to nato air space and nato jets have skracrambled meet them. this is the first time a nato member has shot down russian jets. i think he will maybe he could expand the russian military presence, maybe the number of planes in syria by backing the asaad regime, he's sort of embarrassing the turkish president who talked about removing asaad from power very
quickly. and i think in the long term, there's a lot of economic ties between russia and turkey, particularly the emergennergy f. i think he could create gas price problems for turkey in the long term as a way to punish turkey for what happened. >> let's talk more in depth about the consequences with a senior fellow of the turkish research program and the author of the rise of country. he joins us now live from istanbul. thank you so much for your time. there have been previous claims of russia violating turkish air space. why do you think turkey decided this time to shoot down a russian jet? why now? >> i think turkey was, for a long time, irritated and worthered worthe
bothered. this was part of the operations to support operations in syria. the question is why yesterday, and i think the answer will be that there's some domestic pressures here. the russian planes were bombing areas in syria where turkmans are. and there's domestic pressure against the government to do something to help the turkmans, and i think the government acted as a result of this. there's also another angle where turkey has a policy that is now trying to get turkey a foot a the table. and turkey was hoping that the rebels that the country backs would not be swept out entirely by putin because putin's air power is to dom noinant that it would -- become [ inaudible ]
>> i think one way putin will react to this is militarily in northern syria. the regime survives which is a goal that turkey long tried to achieve. so that won't come to fruition. another goal was have a foot at the table in syria. turkey backed rebels in syria will be swept by by putin's military force. i think that's where turkey be pay back. that will mean turkey will have to face a large flow of refugees when putin and asaad move in to clean the area. >> it is quite complicated and we'll have to see how this plays out. we apologize for some of the technical issues. we appreciate what he had to say. thanks very much. >> and we'll take a short break right here.
