tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN November 25, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PST
15: 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. turkey shoots down a russian bomber. it can derail syria. turkey says they ignored multiple warnings. russia says its jet never strayed from syrian territory. russian news agencies reports one of the two pilots was killed as was a russian marine trying to rescue them. a second pilot was rescued, and is with the army now. the head of nato urges calm. >> that calm echoed by president obama. let's bring in cnn's ian lee for the latest. ian, russia is saying this was an operation targeting isis, be you this area where it happened isn't an area known for isis activity, right? >> reporter: that's exactly right.
we do not have real evidence, proof of isis operating in the area. who is operating is turkmen rebels. they ethnically have close ties with turkey. turkey has been backing them. turkey warned the government of syria as well as the russians from attacking them. they see them as their close relatives. president erdowan talked about this a little while ago. take a listen. >> we do not have any intention to escalate this matter. all we are caring for is a defending of security and the law and rights of our brothers. >> we really have two different narratives here, two different times of rhetoric from turkey is one of consilltory tone, where they're saying they don't want this to happen again they say
there should be a dialogue to make sure that happens. putin used fiery rhetoric. he is going to ensure it doesn't happen again through steam. there are surface-to-air missiles being deployed in the western part of syria near the area where this plane was shot down. he says jets on bombing missions will have fighter escorts as well. so it definitely seems like tensions are rising. but the international community is trying to do what they can to lower them. >> now, ian, we know, obviously, turkey is an allie. they called an emergency meeting yesterday. do we know if they are making preparations militarily to prepare for any kind of escalation? >> reporter: it doesn't seem right now that there will be any sort of military escalation as far as any more direct action between the two countries. what we're seeing right now from russia is punitive measures going after the turkish economy.
we could also see russia going after turkish-backed rebels if syria, pushing against them and trying to, and trying to destroy turkey's ambitions within syria. >> that is more likely. right now, this was the first time we've seen direct action between a nato country and russia. but both sides are calling for cooler heads. it is unlikely that this will escalate any further. >> we certainly hope so. ian lee, reporting in istanbul, traunk. russian president furious. accusing the biggest trading partner of stabbing russia in the back. calling turkey an accomplice of terrorism for financing isis through illicit oil sales. it's fought clear yet how the shootdown will affect putin's meeting with the president which happens tomorrow. president francois hollande
trying to build a coles against isis. it is believed he will push for help even with president bashar al-assad out of power. on tuesday, he met with obama afterwards. he said help would be great but not essential. >> we got a coalition. russia right now is a coalition of two, iran and russia supporting assad. russia is the outlyer. >> reporter: with the latest on russia's reactions, cnn's mathew chance joins us live now from moscow. what do you think, will it destroy any chance of united front against russia, meaning russia is joining in on this
battl battle? >> it's a difficult question to answer. despite the fact there is a lot of anger on russia's side at this point one of its pilots, another marine, killed on the ground as well during the rescue missi mission, still the underlying interest, if not turkey, but another nato countries. to say how it will advance, i expect some concern that turkey acted so quickly the shoot down that russian plane. the turks, themselves say the russian aircraft was only in turkish airspace 17 seconds. it took the decision for f-16s to intercept it and shoot it down. that seems to me to be an extraordinarily short time to take action. the turks say they have their rules of engagement and that's
that. but it's provoked from the russians which are going to make it difficult, like it or not, for the western military alliance to work with the kremlin in terms of cracking down on islamist groups and sigh sis inside fir i syria. already the productions have advanced a number of measures, which indicate the difficulties to come. they've announced today vladmir vad, the defense ministry, in some of the most if not sophisticated surface-to-air tech following that exists in the world. they can shoot down anything over 400 miles, you know, away distance so you know the russians are serious, it teams e seems, on their targets inside syria. also making sure that no one
comes anywhere near their bombers. they said all their bombers will have fighter escorts. so they potentially close off syria's airspace, if they choose to do that to nato countries. it could be a flash in the pan they could let this go. there could be serious consequences on the days and weeks ahead. >> interesting, mathew, you look at all these countries with differing interests and little coordination. thank you so much for your report. the latest on the manhunt for a new suspect in the terrorist attacks. he is 30-year-old mohammed abrini. they believe he drove a key terrorist two days before the attacks. we are learning more about abdelhamid abaaoud, he returned to the shootings at the bataclan concert hall where police were still battling the gunmen
inside. abaaoud has since been killed. this morning the state of brussels returns to normal. subway schools and businesses slowly starting to reopen now. let's bring in cnn's alexander field. good morning. how are neighbors responding to things getting closer to normal? >> reporter: good morning, for the first time in days, we are seeing people back out in the streets, but the streets are still full of military personnel. they are being secured by initial force as these students return to school. we have spoken to some of them who are returning to him 62. they feel they have no choice
but to try to get back to norma normal. the minister says operations are still ongoing the belgium part of the investigation netted a few break in this case. we now know police are searching for mohammed abrini, the person they say was with abdelhamid abaaoud two days before this attack. the camera was at a gas station prior to the attacks. they were driving a car police say used during those attacks so this international manhunt continues. people in brus els say they have no choice but to get back to work and school. >> it will be a tough road back.
thank you. amid the world wide terror alert, president obama takes in a briefing t. white house says the national security officials believe there is currently no specific credible threat to the homeland from isis. the president ordering his national security team to intensify efforts to degrate grade and destroy the terrorist grou groups. >> breaking news, protesters demanding justice after a video was released of a deadly police shooting. ♪

every other american. protests, three people have been charged in minnesota, accused of shooting demonstrators at a plaque lives matter. the protests continue more than a week after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by a police officer. crowds have gathered outside of a minneapolis precinct, demanding justice for mark clark. community members claimed clark was handcuffed when he was shot. police are disputing that. two separate investigations now under way. >> it's time for an early start on your money t. european markets are higher, despite rising tensions between turkey and russia after turkey shot down that russian plane. u.s. stock futures are slightly higher as well. a quiet day for marks yesterday. the dow eeked out a small gain t. nasdaq and s&p 500 gained .1%. traveling for thanksgiving, here is something to be thankful for. the national average for a gallon of regular is at $2.06.
prices peaked if 2012 when drivers paid an average of $3.50 cents. those prices are expected to keep falling. say gas will be less than $2 ber gallon. if you live in suspect states, you probably will see it a little more. but i'll take it. >> 40-plus americans able to travel. we'll see that. the defending champions, golden state warriors reaching a milestone, now officially off to the best start ever. this morning the bleacher report next. .
. >> the golden state warriors, they continue to outdo themselves. >> good morning, most people think of the 95 '95-'96 bulls are the greatest team. steph curry and the warriors done do something, the first 16 games no team has done that headed into golden state against kobe bryant and the lakers. steph curry led the team. >> that puts them to 783-pointers on the season. that's more than two insider nba teams. the warriors beat the lakers 111-77. next up, this 7 and 7, phoenix sundays this friday. we have disturbing news this morning out of miami. st. louis rams receiver steadman bailey is currently hospitalized
if critical but stable condition. reports say bailey was shot in the head and hit yesterday. while sitting in a car, the wounds are fought life threatening. he is scheduled to undergo surgery this morning. bailey is currently serving a four game suspension for violating the nfl substance abuse policy. johnny manziel, he went from being the starting quarter bak to demoted to third string, this news coming after a video released there week that zoomed to show manziel partying like a rockstar in austin during the brown's bye week, earlier, he spent more than ten weeks in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. manziel has failed to consistently demonstrate that he understands what it takes to be successful in the nfl. >> it's all a part of the frustration and disappointment and it's, a little easier to hand him when it's just a one-time a currency. but when the behavior repeats,
whether with him or anybody, it's certainly a cause for concern. >> the college football playoff rankings are in. we have two newcomers, clemson and alabama stay at number one and two respectively. the oklahoma sooners land at number three and the undefeated iowa hawkeyes join the club at number 4. >> that kicks notre dame to the curb. just one of two undefeated teams nationally. but just now moving into the top four because of a weaker schedule. they'll face nebraska this saturday. with the win, they will visit michigan state in the big 10 championship. i am sorry to say, your surkuz orange did not make the top five. i think they have a chance. >> i'm putting my soet in for the sooners, so here here.

>> russia vowing serious consequences for turkey shooting down its war jet. will there be retribution and an international fight against isis neighborhood, breaking news this morning, president tests watching through the streets of chicago, welcome back to "early start." >> it's 30 minutes past the hour. hang now, world leaders bracing for a possible fallout. a deadly move that could derail any chance for a true
international coalition in syria. turkey says the plane ignored multiple warnings. russia says it never stayed. one of two pilots was killed as was a russian marine trying to rescue them. a second pilot was rescued and is with the syrian army. now, western leaders fear escalation. the head of nato urges calm. expressing u.s. support for turkey's right to defend its sovereignty. so you think about sort of historically, russia, it's not the first time russia has gone into turkish airspace. this time, it was very different. >> well, that's exactly right. just last month, russian violated turkish airspace and turkey has warned them in the past that any sort of efforts
could be met with like the incidents we saw yesterday, where turkish jets shot down that russian plane. now we are hearing, literally, right now from the prime minister of turkey, talking about this incident. he said that there were two planes that violated turkish airspace after the warnings. one of the planes veered off and the other one continued to the violation. they said they shot down the plane when it was in turkish airspace. this is a narrow strip of land that goes into syria and they say that's within they shot down the plane landing in syria. what we are fearing from turkish officials is one of a conciliatory tone. they're saying that on the one hand, listen, they are going to defend their term. on the other hand. they have no animosity towards russia. they want to create a dialogue to make sure something like this doesn't happen again, they say it is in their interest to have
a dispute with russia, especially with the current civil war going on in neighboring syria. >> we do not have any intention to escalate this matter. all we are caring for is a defending of security and the law and rights of our brothers. >> and we just heard from the president. turkey said they are defending their kin, turkmen, ethnic turks on the border. they have accused russia of bombing them, killing syrians as well, bombing them as well. they say that is their main object siv to protect them. it could backfire as this could escalate tensions with russia.
but turkey trying to des escalate the association so the does not happen again. >> that is the hope, live from istanbul, thank you. >> meantime, russian president vladmir putin furious, accusing turkey of stabbing russia in the back. even calming turkey an accomplice of terrorism for allegedly financing isis through elicit oil sales. this breaking news, russia announcing it will deploy a powerful air-to-missile system in syria. it's not clear how it will affect the meeting of france tomorrow. francois hollande building a coalition against isis. it is expected he will ease brought bashar al-assad out of power. on tuesday, hole lande met with president obama. afterwards, the president says russian cooperation would be enormously helpful but signalled it is not essential. >> we got a coalition.
russia right now has a coalition of two. iran and russia supporteding assad. russia is the outlyer. >> with the latest, cnn's mathew chance joins us. good morning, putin said there will be serious consequences. >> certainly, the s-400 missiles, they're some of the most sfifrt indicated and nato planes as well. he will certainly have the capability to close off syrian airspace. he hasn't suggested that's the intention at this point. once they're in police, it's an escalation.
essentially, no one will be able to fly over the skies unless russia gives it the okay. that's a major significance. the fact that their plane has been shot down has essentially allowed russia or forced russia to boost it's presence inside syria, effectively in the future, the not too distant future, giving it control of that syrian airspace. that's a major escalation t. consequences for turkey. they have already been quite severe. there will be diplomatic rebukes. the foreign minister called off his trip. vad vladmir called it a stab in the back. economically you would could be difficult. they were told not to travel to turkey. some chicken producers, for instance, have had their products banned from importing into russia as well from turkey. so there are a sort of range of dip willmatic economic and military measures the russians are now imposing as a response to what they call a major violation of humanitarian or
international law with downing the aircraft. >> now, mathew, a major point of contention is whether hollande stays in power. putin have been vocal about keeping assad under power. some say he is not married to assad long term. what is your reaction to that? >> i think that's probably good analysis the individual, i think, for the kremlin isn't as important as the interests he protects. russia's interest is it has an airbase and a naval base on the coast of the mediterranean. it has got economic ties as well. it sees bashar al-assad as the individual with family members, of course, who will continue to back up russia in that sense and not let those interests go and give them to somebody else. i mean, if there is another individual who could also russians could be convinced will
protect their interest, they will go for it. at the moment, they're saying bashar al-assad is a legitimate presence of syria. it's not for anyone else. it's for the people of syria. so demoment, there is no sign of them withdrawing their support from assad at the moment. >> all right, we will continue to monitor the situation. thank you. the latest now on the manhunt for a new suspect in the paris terrorist attacks. he's 30-year-old mohammed abrini. police believe he drove one of the key terrorists to paris two days before the attacks. we are also learning more about the grow-op's ring leader. they say abdelhamid abaaoud returned to the scene of the shootings at the concert hall while police were still battling the gunmen inside. abaaoud has since been killed. the morning, the city of brussels remains on high alert, while trying to return to normal after four days of lockdowns. subways, schools, businesses, slowly beginning to reopen right
now. let's go live to brus els and bring in cnn's alexander fields. so what has changed between let's say yesterday and today? we got the threat levels at its highest level. we have military equipment still on the street there. i'm sure parents are really worried this morning as they send their kids off the school. >> reporter: right, allison, frankly, the minister interior says the city will remain under the high level until monday. yet the decision was made top to open up the metro and get back to some sense of normal. yes, it is certainly unnerveing for some of the people in this city. there are others inching to resume their normal activity since this lockdown, this partial lockdown went into effect friday night. we are seeing it in the streets. we are seeing it in the schools behind me. we heard from one mother dropping off a child at the
elementary school. she says as a parent, you always worry about the safety of your children. those words ring true perhaps more than any other day. but people feel there is the necessity to get back to life as usual. we also looked at journalism students who are going to the school behind me here. they say they have a certain level of anything st. sight. they are comforted to see a heavy police presence out here. there are hundreds of police officers patrolling in the areas of the schools. there are hundreds of military personnel in the metro as people begin to take the trainings again. but the minister of the interior has said the operations will continued to try and fer et out, root out, anyone who could be checked to the terror cells that perpetrated that attack in paris. so far, it has netted five arrests that are connected to those attacks. we know there is an international manhunt, salah abdeslam and mohammed abrini.
police have released a picture. he was with salah abdeslam two days before the attacks. will people in brussels return to life as normal? two men are believed to be armed an dangerous still on the loose. >> very good points. a reminder not all is back to normal. breaking news this morning, protesters demanding justice, video showing a white police officer shooting a plaque teenager, that's next. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever? .

the force was necessary. >> reporter: mcdonald's family settled with the city of chicago for $5 million and didn't want this video to be released. but as you might imagine, a lot of the protesters in this community, a lot of activists wanted the release of this video for transparency purposes and as soon as this video was released, there were protests planned. now, as for the defense, the defense attorney of this police officer, he's asking for a fair trial. boris, allison. >> the chicago police department has now fired jason van dyke. the defense attorney says his client feared he would be attacked. he says the officer's actions were appropriate. van dyke wants the case tried in court, not the media. he said he has a presumption of innocence like every other american. >> stock futures here in the u.s. trading higher, u.s. oil
