good day to you. we start this hour with u.s. politics. the final push for candidates running for president in the key state of iowa. the caucuses could kill any campaign. these parties as they continue, it is after all the first state to cast votes for the presidential nominees that will bring moment um to the winner. donald trump was in new hampshire, but returns to iowa on saturday for at least three rallies. his current main rival ted cruz will be traveling and stumping for votes. on the other side, democrats will be busy on saturday. hillary clinton will hold several rallies ending with her husband, bill clinton and their daughter, chelsea. bernie sanders is busy with a series of rallies all day. our senior correspondent has the
latest. >> a fight to the finish. >> please, between now and monday night, think hard because the stakes are high. >> if we win, it will indicate that this country is ready for real significant change. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a battle for iowa. >> you need to caucus for her. >> it's a family affair for the final countdown. >> those of you still shopping trying to make up your mind, i hope i can persuade you. >> by saying her rival's universal health care plan is wishful thinking. >> people with health care emergencies can't wait for a debate about a better idea that will never ever come to pass. >> she drove her point home with a personal story. >> my daughter had brain cancer. people can't wait.
>> the race is coming down to campaign organization. it's a duel for the direction. sanders is casting clinton as the status quo and shining the sharp contrast. >> how does wall street get away with it. millions in speaking fees. >> he said the movement can achieve his lofty agenda. >> everybody here knows that change, real change never comes easily. >> diane shaffer is a clinton supporter who never thought the race would be this close. >> why is bernie sanders giving her such a run for her money. >> i don't know? i thought it would be a slam dunk. >> it's time to shake-up the establishment with sanders. >> she all about bernie. i don't know if it's the younger group coming out in force and being like oh, my gosh. let's go for this radical change
that bernie keeps talking about. >> cnn, des moines. >> donald trump is attacking his republican opponent ted cruz by using a controversial term and calling him an anchor baby that is considered derogatory, but he used it in the past to describe babies born to parents illegally. they help the parents remain in the country. ted cruz was born in canada to an american mother who was living legally in that country at the time of his birth. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen, but he's an anchor baby. ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. but canada doesn't accept anchor babies. they just waited a long time. >> cruz's camp responded with the following statement. the only anchor here is the one
being dragged behind the ss new york values causing donald trump's campaign to stall out after learning of his affinity for hillary clinton. while the candidates have been arguing fiercely about abortion, europe has been wrestling with a problem there with the massive influx of migrants from syria and other war torn regions and it is prompting them to seek tougher border and asylum policies. the coalition representing the opposition groups said it will be in geneva for peace talks after all. the high negotiations committee threatened a boycott if syria's government didn't end the blockades and sieges. following this, our diplomatic editor is live with the story. god have you this hour. these talks are final lly getti under way after lengthy delays.
>> reporter: they are. there is great or better hope now. they can really get up and running. yesterday the special representative who is overseaing the talk his a two-hour meeting with the delegate from the syrian government. he had a meeting laying the ground work setting out the agenda that has been laid down in a resolution that had six months of leads to it and a new constitution and a year after that, you get new elections in the country that the un overs s oversees. he meets with each party separately in different rooms. when he went into the meeting yesterday, it wasn't clear that the opposition group, the high negotiating committee were going to attend here. he said he does have assurances from them now and they will come here and they will negotiate, but the issues they wanted to address before they got here.
they wanted humanitarian access on the ground to beleaguered communities, particularly women and children and wanted a cessation of the bombardment, the message from the international community and the un to the agency and you can talk about it. now they seem to be coming. >> let's talk. there were discussions and negotiations about who would be at the talks. i want to ask specifically about the syrian government given that they have support from russia. what is their position now in these talks? >> it's not clear. they didn't make any comments leaving the talks so we don't know if they have come to the new agenda different than the one they came with two years ago in geneva known as geneva two and this is geneva three. back then they were trying to get the talks up and running and blame the syrian government for
only wanting to talk about the issue of terrorists after a couple of weeks. and a syrian state broadcast and following the meeting. what discussion there had been about identifying terrorists. that still remains an issue for the syrian government and for the russians. if that's going to be their only point on the agenda, it doesn't hold out a lot of hope. the syrian government has support from the russian air force bombing on the ground and they are making gains in the south and north. when the military is making gains on the ground, often times it may not seem logical to get into talks. there a lot of talks right now. why would they change their track? >> we can talk for hours about the ibt caseys there, but the
bigger issue here and. what is the hope that they will accomplish? the un organization that tracks the movement is one of those. they are in close proximity to these talks. the international migration yesterday released new statis c statistics that are shocking. more migrants died trying to leave turkey. 50 people tried to get there by
boat. 254 across the mediterranean total this year. europe is bulging at the seems both politically and socially. they don't want more and they are struggling to accept the numbers they have got and yet they keep coming. this is on everyone's minds. >> live for us in geneva. thank you so much for your reporting. now we move on to the zika outbreak and how to lower the risk of infection. the committee said teams will be safe and added the precautions are necessary. they recommend using insect repellant and wearing long sleeves and pants. the president is speaking out about the virus plaguing her country. >> as long as the mosquito
reproduces, we are losing the battle. we have to mobilize so we do not lose the battle. >> zika has been linked to a dangerous disorder in newborns and there is no treatment available. we could see up to four million cases in the coming year. the chief correspondent sanjay gupta has this report. >> it was an ominous warning today. >> the explosive spread of zika virus. >> it is spreading with 3 million to 4 million expected in the next year. the level of concern is high as is the level of uncertainty about the virus. >> it's right on. we have to be aggressive and we want to get ahead of it. >> it has been a virus of little consequence with mild symptoms of fever, rash, and headache
that are resolved within a week. four out of five people have no symptoms at all. that all changed when it was linked. today it was 4,000 cases of microsevaly, a neurological condition that prevents head and brain from developing. 51 have died and as a result women in brazil are being told not to get pregnant and they are saying to postpone travel to any of the countries where the virus is active. there more than 30 cases of zika in at least 12 less states. all of those were acquired during travel in affected areas. >> i would not be surprised if they had the zika virus. there is travel back and forth.
>> there is no cases being transmitted to a person within the continental united states. the cdc warns that will change and reminds us there is no reason to panic. >> for the average american whether you are traveling or not, we don't think it is a big threat even if we have cases of local spread, we don't expect large outbreaks the way there is in brazil. >> it is a fast moving situation and every day for the next several days, there will be guidance and new numbers. i want to explain a little bit of the doctor's optimism. she doesn't believe it's widespread in part because the amenities here such as screens on windows, air conditioned buildings can help reduce the spread of a mosquito-born illness. a lot of places are more
urbanized and don't have these amenities. that's part of the reason for optimism. >> that was dr. sanjay gupta reporting. now on to china, the nation calls this a miracle. four miners in utter joy rescued after being trapped for 36 days. the men were brought up one by one on friday. days ago they were told they were going to be rescued and a cell phone was sent down to record experiences more than 200 meet oters or 700 feet undergro. >> at least one miner died in
the collapse. 13 are missing and it is unclear what caused the mine to collapse, but china has been criticized for poorly enforcing safety rules. one man in custody and two more on the run. the latest on the california jail break on this broadcast and why experts in flint, michigan are saying the filters may not be able to handle the lead in the city's water. stay with us.
>> welcome back to cnn newsroom. facebook announced they are banning private gun sales on all of the platforms including instagram. the company prohibits users from selling illegal drugs, but said it is hoping to crack down now on weapon sales. licensed retailers will be able to post about their goods as long as all transactions take place off site. any content that violates the policy will be removed. in southern california, one of three inmates who escaped the
jail last week turned himself in. the manhunt is wrapping up for two other fugitives on the run and now a woman who taught english as a second language at the jail has been arrested as well. cnn has the latest on her relationship with one of the inmates. >> she is 44. he is 37. both of iranian decent and involved in a relationship that may have started in the orange county jail. she taught english as a second language and ringleader was her student. after his escape, degrees found correspondence between the two. were they love letters? >> it's not out of the question, but we don't have information to determine if it was romantic, but it was much more personal than it should have been. >> the rap sheet hardly screens hopeless romantic. he grew up in fresno and killed a friend after crashing a car
while driving drunk. in 2012, he kidnapped and tortured a marijuana dispensary owner, burning him with a blowtorch and sexually muteilating the victim. she proclaims she has a masters in french literature and has been editing books and teaching english, farce i and french to adults. >> the connection whether it was from iran, we are not sure, that is very much of a concern. that leads us to believe she played a significant role in the planning. >> they said the instructor may have provided him with a printed google map, valuable for someone who could not case a roof from the inside. authorities say all three were
facing in prison if convicted and motivated to break out. >> it's common knowledge that they will use whatever they can and manipulations they can use to get something they want. >> now it sounds like the escape last summer. authorities charge violent prisoners got outside with inside help. cnn, santa ana, california. >> the people of flint, michigan will be getting much needed help dealing with the consequences of the city's lead contaminated water. the governor approved $28 million in funding to be used for filters, testing kits and some water infrastructure issues. the contamination started after they changed the water source in 2014 in some cases.
environmental officials say they found levels of lead too high for filters to remove it. a team rescued six survivors. details are unclear and authorities say it was human triggered and warn people to exercise caution in that area. a snowstorm headed for the united states could impact the derek van dam look. they don't want to hear that right now. >> i wonder how that would impact voter turn out. >> do i stay home in. >> it's iowa, but it's cold. >> exact low. it looks as if they are going to get away very, very close to this blizzard impact in them. monday night when the caucuses wrap up, they will start to see the first on set of the snow,
but it's tuesday when it starts to ramp up. take a look at the graphic. you can see what's at play here. we have an area of low pressure that is not on the maps yet. keep in mind this is a few days out. this is drawing in cold air from the north below where it should be this time of year. it is drawing in moist and unstable atmosphere. as we play this thing out, look at the moisture across the country. snowfall from the upper great lakes through iowa all the way through the rockies. severe storms for the tennessee river valley for late minute
into tuesday. this storm is not even on the weather map yet. it's not starting to develop until late sunday into monday where it gathers steam and it takes a big dive. we gather moisture from the pacific. let's and a half and go to iowa. here's the snowfall totals across the rockies. look as it moves late in the middle of the workweek. let's time it out for everybody. through the northeast from 12 to 18 inches of snow. that and it stays dry and temperatures up above freezing. the weather threat in the tennessee river valley. it explodes into the day on tuesday as we draw on the warm moist air from memphis.
that's the target point. take a look at this. this is one last video off the coast of france. a crippled cargo ship drifting slowly towards the french atlantic coast on friday. all personnel on board were rescued by helicopter, but this ship is just on its. the seas are so rough. dramatic images off of western france. it doesn't pose a threat to any land or people, but certainly a sight to see. >> thank you so much. world number one. serena williams looks to make tennis history in the australian open final. if she defeats 7th seeded angelique kerber. it will be her 22nd grand slam title matching the all time record by steffi graf.
the young boy who became an internet sensation for the makeshift jersey has been found in afghanistan. the 5-year-old gained fame when a picture of his football jersey made out of a plastic bag made the rounds on twitter. it inspired people to find out who he was and where he was. now that they have, messi himself is preparing something special for this very young fan. you are watching cnn newsroom and thousands of migrants and refugees have sought a safer place in norway, but now many fear they will be sent out of the country to an uncertain future. we will have that story next and the u.s. state department said they will not release hillary clinton's e-mails because they contain top secret information. what she has to say as the broadcast continues this hour.
>> you are watching cnn newsroom. the headlines we are following for you, the critical iowa caucuses happen monday and candidates are making last minute appeals to voters. iowa is the first state to select the candidate parties want as their nominee. her country is losing the battle and calling on everyone to unite against mosquitos carrying the
disease. zika has been linked to a dangerous birth defect and no vaccine or treatment is available. in the central african republic, un and eu peace keepers and troops abused meyers. the accusations abused those from the eu and france. an umbrella group representing opposition said they will attend the peace talks led by the un. they are expected to arrive later saturday and earlier they threatened to boycott the talks if the syrian government did not stop. a quarter million syrians are said to be killed and more than four million fled their home land and millions more have been displaced. the mass exodus into europe helped to trigger the migrant
crisis we see now. thousands arrived in norway last year, making the crossing from russia. as phil black reports, many are afraid they will be sent back to russia and ultimately back to syria. >> the winter weather in the arctic region changes quickly. when the sun shines, it's brief. just a few hours a day. when it goes, temperatures drop and sharp winds cut through fabric. thousands of migrants have come here to this stark striking landscape to find safety and perhaps prosperity. the norwegian-russian border where the flags fly together. signs in multiple languages declare this is a frontier of the borderless immigration zone. this is the end goal for what is known as the arctic route to europe.
5,400 migrants traveled through russia and crossed this border on bikes because they were not allow to walk or drive across. now something changed. there are no more bikes and no asylum seekers have tried to cross since the start of december last year. because the tough arctic winter conditions. now norway is working to send many of the migrants back in the other direction. 80 have been brought to this nearby camp. the government said they are to be deported because they had permission to live in russia which they consider safe. that's little comfort to this family. they from damascus and fled to russia three years ago. to live and to work. >> we thought that they have
treatment for my child. >> he said his daughter was diagnosed with autism and they hoped escaping the war and seeing russian doctors would make a difference, but it department. he said the treatment his daughter needs doesn't exist in russia and norwegian doctors have told him they can help. what will happen if you return to russia? >> my child will stay like this. she will never be like another child. >> as a father, what does that mean to you? >> it means i am dying. >> syrians travel to russia because it's one of the few countries to get temporary visas relatively easily. russia and syria are allies, but few syrians need protection from their own government. migrants being returned to russia will see them sent back to syria to live under a regime
condemned by european countries including norway. black, cnn, norway. >> turning to u.s. politics. hillary clinton's e-mails are back in the spotlight days before the critical iowa caucuses. the state department said on friday it will not release 22 e-mails from clinton's time as secretary of state of the u.s. because they contained top secret information. they were not top secret at the time. the clinton campaign said this is a case of overclassification run amok. the democratic strategist hillary rosen agrees. >> the e-mails that were circulating and in question actually were being circulated by state department officials on the unclassified system. so it really is sort of irrelevant whether or not hillary clinton was the recipient of those e-mails.
the issue now is that the state department is trying to change the identification for e-mails that had been on their unclassified system. really right now what you have is a dispute among intelligence officials that in some respects has nothing to do with hillary clinton. >> bernie sanders said in a statement on friday, clinton's e-mails should not be politicized and there is a legal process in place. he said the following, the voters of iowa and the nation deserve a serious discussion of the issues facing them. you may remember mr. sanders declined to attack hillary clinton in the debate saying the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. the candidates have dozens of events lined up and donald trump returns to iowa on saturday for at least three rallies and his rival ted cruz will be very busy traveling around the state stumping for votes.
cnn correspondent sarah murray has more on the last push. >> ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. >> after a tough night for ted cruz, donald trump is piling on. >> she in second place and got pummelled last night. i'm glad i wasn't there. he got pummelled. wow. they didn't even mention he was born in canada. >> sharpening attacks on his citizenship and delighting in the decision to skip thursday night's debate. >> i did something that was risky and it turned out great. i'm getting more publicity. >> is coping with a rockier reception after sparring with moderators. >> if you can ask more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> and facing incoming fire from the rivals. >> the truth is throughout this campaign you have been willing to say or do anything to get
votes. >> he woke up to this front page and tried to take shots at his opponents. >> it's easy to come to iowa and propose expanding the ethanol man dats. next week he may have a different position. that's the position today. >> is not the only one crawing scrutiny. he was on defense on the stance on immigration. >> you used to support a path to citizenship. >> so did you. >> trump's opponents said they could under cut him in iowa. >> the disdain and arrogance trump showed may turn off iowa voters. >> he told bryanna keilar it was a show of strength. >> you will find a lot of voters and caucus goers will say he is the one person who will stand up for himself. >> iowa conservatives seem to believe it won't do much damage.
>> did it hurt him or not? >> not at all. the headline in the "des moines register" who said rough night for ted cruz says it all. >> the contest of the u.s. presidential race, the caucus is open to any registered voter in the party in the state of iowa. they caucus differently. republicans come together and try to persuade each other to vote for their favorite candidate and then they cast the ballot for the preference. democrats caucus in a more traditional way. jonathan mann explains. >> they caucus in a public space. they have a representative trying to sway undecided voters. looks like the speeches are done and now they are headed for the candidate corners. >> george washington has the
most support with seven of the faceless people. the caucus is not over yet. it's time for a community discussion and persuasion. jefferson supporters are headed for the washington corner with cupcakes and every reason they can imagine with the rivals to join them. they have succeeded in convincing one washington supporter to move over to the camp. they don't have eyes, but lincoln supporters see an sdp t opportunity and armed with achievements and every argument he can summon. the washington supporter is going back to the first president's corner and taking a lincoln supporter with him. the taly is eight for washington, four for jefferson and three for lincoln. does anybody want to change the votes? no? it looks like the caucus is over and george washington will have his cupcake and eat it too.
>> seasoned investors say january has been gut wrenching. was friday's end to a turbulent month any indication of what's ahead? we will look at the latest volatility next. we go back stage with a young d.j. who is changing the state of music as we know it. ♪ ♪ (cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator... can i call you back, mom? he says it's personal this time... if you're a mom, you call at the worst time. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. where are you? it's very loud there. are you taking a zumba class?
>> u.s. president barack obama to achieve equal pay for women. private businesses with more than 100 employees required to employ pay data. having better information is crucial to closing the salary gap between men and women. >> we are going to keep pushing until every girl has the rights and opportunities and the
freedom to go as far as her dreams will take her. that's the spirit that i intend to keep pushing. as long as i have the privilege to be in this office. >> the white house said women in the u.s. on average make only about 79 cents for every dollar that men earn. u.s. stocks closed higher on friday and the dow jones average jumped more than 396 points and that was hardly enough to make up for a terrible january for u.s. markets. the dow is down 5.5% for the month and investigator had to cope with the slow down and the global melt down in oil prices. if there was a time that you wanted to make it big in the music industry, the key was to sell albums and to get your song on the radio. 24-year-old norwegian d.j. said forgot the radio and the albums, you don't need to sing or write
we have been able to sell so much and do so much around the world. >> the machine behind him is even younger than he is. his manager is just 22. >> he is not all 20 somethings. he is a 30-year veteran of the music scene. >> this could maybe be a hit for us. >> the rest of the industry is fighting and they are all missing the point. >> with five singles out, we are selling out huge with barclay center. it's a tribute to the way the relationship changed between artists and music and the fans through the internet. >> you don't have an album out yet. >> i don't. you don't need an album. people don't listen to albums anymore. they find good songs. >> and they listen a lot. electronic dance music is a $6
billion market. >> how do you make money? >> on shows like this. >> my mom said how did this guy sell out a show in new york. he doesn't write the words and doesn't sing. what draws people to your shows? >> this is what i love to do. >> you are a musician. >> i am. >> d.j.s like kygo are all over the charts. critics say the genre is a bubble that might just pop. even if it does fate, edf has changed how music makes money. >> never in my life thought i would play venues like this. it's all because of you guys. >> you are watching cnn newsroom. we have incredible video of a shark devouring another shark at a south korean aquarium. what may have led up to this moment. stay with us.

. it is getting down to the wire in iowa as the presidential candidates gear up for minute's caucus voting. plus, long awaited talks to find an end to serious civil war are taking place in geneva. this after two years of delays. fears over the zika virus grows as disease spreads to another country. world headquarters in atlanta, welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. >> a very good day and we start
the hour with the presidential race in the state of iowa. we are talking about the iowa caucuses. they are do-or-die in both parties as iowa is the first state to cast the votes for the presidential nominees. the senior correspondent explains why this weekend is so important to the candidates. >> what they are doing now, they are going from persuasion trying to win over from mobilization and trying to get supporters out and get them mobilized throughout the course of the weekend. they will be dry runs. what that means is people are going to convene in a neighborhood and try to get their supporters out to facilities. they will be knocking on doors and calling and it is a test of organization. it is not a primary election where they cast a ballot. this is a series of town meetings across the state of iowa where at the same time 7:00
p.m., people say who they are going to support all at the same time. it's a test of organization that is going to tell us a lot about how long this campaign is going to go. >> donald trump there was and returns to iowa for at least three rallies there. donald trump will be traveling by bus. marco rubio will be flying around iowa drumming up support and right now he is the newest farg et . >> ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. >> he is in second place and got pummelled. i'm glad i wasn't there. he got pummelled. wow. they didn't even mention he was born in canada.
>> sharpening attacks on cruz's citizenship and delighting in his decision to skip thursday night's debate. >> i did something very risk because i'm getting more publicity than if i -- you know? i don't know. >> is coping with a rockier reception after sparring with debate moderators. >> if you ask more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> and facing incoming fire from his rivals. >> the truth is throughout this campaign, you have been willing to say or do anything. >> woke up to this front page in iowa. and tried to get back on offense by taking shots at his opponent. >> it's easy to come to iowa and propose as donald trump did. let's expand the ethanol mandate. he may have a different position. that's the position today. >> rubio's rivals put him on difference over the shifting
stance on immigration. >> you changed your position. it used to support a path to citizenship. >> so did you. >> they predicted he could under cut him in iowa. >> the disdain he showed by not coming may turn off iowa voters. >> they said it was a show of strength. >> a lot of voters and caucus goers will say he is the one person that will stand up for himself. >> iowa conservatives seem to believe it won't do much damage. >> did it hurt him or not? >> i don't think it hurt him at all. his nearest competitor kind of bloodied that said a rough night for ted cruz. that said it all. >> the democratic candidates will be very dizzy on saturday. the former president campaigned with his wife hillary clinton on friday. she has a series of events scheduled for saturday and her rival bernie sanders has a whirl
wind of rallies planned including a concert at the university of iowa that is already sold out. meanwhile, hillary clinton's e-mails are once again getting attention after the u.s. state department said it will not release 22 e-mails from clinton's time as secretary of state because they contain top secret information. they were not top secret at the time though. the campaign spokesman told wolf blitzer this is a case of overclassification run amok. listen. >> they did it at the behest of the intelligence committee. they saw it coming because there was an inner agency dispute going on for months and some of the more aggressive actors within that agency have been broadcasting publicly. their feelings that the material should be treated as very
sensitive even as other agencies in the government have said they don't have a basis to believe it to be classified. it seems like the more aggressive, louder and in fact more leak-prone agencies involved in this review of her e-mails have gotten the upper hand here and we are disappointed in that and disagree with the finding and think these e-mails should be released as she called for a year ago when she provided them for the purpose of them being made public. she wants the public to have an opportunity to read and review them and learn about her tenure. if people saw what was in the e-mails, they would realize this is an example of overclassification where you have the gray area of different agencies and having different definitions of what's classified and what's not. that's at issue here. >> now to talk about donald trump's feud with fox news and megyn kelly over this week's republican debate that put the spotlight on the news media's relationship with presidential
candidates. earlier my colleague natalie allen spoke about this issue. she belongs to a nonprofit organization that promotes and defends the freedom of press. >> you learned about jorge ramos being kicked out back last summer and recently he had access to a "new york times" journalist this month to an event. he has denied or restricted credentials for the "des moines register" and the "huffington post" and buzz feed throughout his primary campaign. >> we have seen donald trump way out there when it comes to handling of the media as far as not allowing them to do their jobs. hillary clinton at the start of her campaign was not taking questions on the campaign trail. >> that's correct. she sometimes had similar treatment of the media where the foreign press was concerned.
she banned access for daily mail reporter to one of her trips to new hampshire. she has been criticized for denying basic sourcing information and basic information and she has also just restricted access to her campaign in ways that you would not expect because donald trump does it so brazenly to the treatment of the press. it has been bad and the "huffington post" even mentioned long standing tensions between her and the press even though no recent press events have occurred. >> what about as far as the united states and we think of the u.s. and freedom of the press. i was reading that it may be true that our rankings have dropped in that. >> yes, actually the united states has fallen 14 places
since 2013 on reporters without borders press freedom index. it ranks 49 out of 180 countries. it's really alarming for the country such as the united states that prides itself on the first amendment to fall so hard so fast. it can be explained by the recent administration's treatment of journalists's lack of transparency and going after sources. for example, the obama administration prosecuted more whistle blowers than any administration combined. when you add the fact that journalists have been arrested in baltimore and ferguson. it's easy to see why there is such decline. >> this is supposedly the era of transparency and you are up against institutions. we appreciate your time. you and reporters without borders. thank you. >> thank you. >> so what exactly are the iowa
caucuses and why are they different from primaries. coming up in about 25 minutes, jonathan mann breaks it down with an easy to understand explainer for it. now to the u.s. state of oregon. the federal judge is denying bond for protesters who have been occupying a federal wildlife facility. 11 people have been arrested so far. four remain inside the refuge located near burns, oregon. it took a violent turn when a member was shot dead in a traffic stop. the fbi released video. we go through the footage, but we warn you some of the images may be disturbing. >> this shooting is why the fbi is releasing unedited video shot from a surveillance plane. the man gunned down is one of the leaders of the month long wildlife refuge siege in oregon. during the occupation he told reporters he would give his life.
>> don't point guns at me and i shall not point guns at you. let's leave it at that. >> law enforcement made the first move since the siege began. the black jeep pulls over. the leader surrenders. the truck that he is driving stops here. one passenger gets out and turns himself in. he is waving to authorities, but not exiting. for nearly four minutes, the truck sits on the road and suddenly takes off. >> the white truck leaves the scene at a high rate of speed. >> it approaches a roadblock and nearly hits an officer and slams into a snow bank. >> he steps to the snow. >> his hands are up, but he reaches to the left here and then here. and officers fire. >> he did have a loaded .9 millimeter in his pocket. at this time they shot him. >> three people are still in the truck.
officers used flash banks and a deterrent to get the two women and man to surrender. >> agents and troopers did find three other loaded weapons in the truck. they included two loaded and two semi automatic rifles and one loaded. >> the occupation continues. a small handful of people remain on the refuge down the street. the negotiations with them continuing. cnn, oregon. >> in the u.s. state of california, one of inmates who escaped jail turned himself in. the orange county sheriff said 43-year-old with multiple convicts walked into a friend's auto shop and gave himself up. now the manhunt is wrapping up for the other two escapees. investigators say they likely broke out after the 5:00 a.m. head count. they didn't discover the escape until 15 hours later.

protocols they expect to have. of course as laid down by the un security council, there were expected to be months of talks and leading to a year after that expected to be un-administered elections. this is the very beginning. we know it's a high negotiating committee and the opposition and the group represents different elements of the opposition in syria. we know they are expected to leave saudi arabia today to come here to geneva. at the moment it appears that participation is still in question. the full participation. what a spokesman is saying is that they are not coming here to negotiate and going into the un compound behind me. they expect to meet with the un special representative at their hotel. they are holding out. they say to see a commitment on the issues that they hold out
are important and should be dealt with before they get into talks properly. that is humanitarian relief getting to beleaguered villages and towns. particularly women and children and an end to the bombardment to be followed by a ceasefire. still the agency said stopping them getting into the talks proper. although it's begun, it is not up and running proper. >> peace in syria, but the other big problem across europe is mass migration. from these talks, what is the hope to be accomplished for that and a plan and cohesiveness? >> sure. the talks hold up many possibilities not the least of
which is a ceasefire and peace in syria and for the millions displaced to go home and for the millions that pled the country for them to go back home and end their suffering as they try to get to safer places inside europe and also to bring about a chance to stop isis from growing the territory and therefore threatening attacks in europe and other places. this issue of migration is that is being keenly felt inside the compound behind me. the office of international migration and they give briefings on the number of migrants that are trying to get into europe. more than a million last year and many more expected this year. the statistics continue to be depressing to say the least. they explain that this year so far, the first week of the year 50 migrants lost their lives.
the following week, 95. the following week 160 and 218 alone died getting between turkey and greece. another ten died in the last 24 hours. everyone in the talks know there were so many things can be improved. they have a long way to go. george? >> nick robertson live in geneva. thank you so much for your report. the arctic circle near norway may not seem like the likely destination for migrants crossing into europe, but thousands made their way to norway. some psycycling from russia. many fear they will be sent back to the country they came from. >> the winter weather in norway's arctic region. when the sun shines, it's brief. just a few hours a day.
when it goes, the temperatures drop and sharp winds cut through. thousands of migrants come to this stark striking landscape to find safety and perhaps prosp prosperi prosperity. the norwegian-russian border where the flags fly together. they are souvenirs from both and signs in multiple languages declare this is a frontier. this is the end goal for what is known as the arctic route to europe. during 2015, 5,400 migrants traveled through russia and crossed this border on bikes. they were not allowed to walk or drive across. now something has changed here. the norwegian government said no seekers have tried to cross the border since the start of december last year for a couple of reasons. because of the tough arctic
winter conditions. now norway is working to send many of the migrants back in the other direction. 80 have been brought from across the country to this nearby camp. the government said they are to be deported because they had permission to live in russia which it considers safe. that's little comfort to this family. they left from the syrian capital to russia three years ago. to live? cowor to work? >> no. we thought they had treatment for my child. >> his daughter was diagnosed with autism. they hoped escaping the syrian war and seeing russian doctors would make a difference, but it didn't. they said the treatment his daughter needs doesn't exist in russia. norwegian doctors have told him they can help. >> what will happen if you return to russia?
>> my child will stay like this. she will never be like another child. >> as a father, what does that mean to you? >> it means i am dying. >> syrians travel to russia because it's one of the few countries where they can get visas relatively easily. that means moscow believes few syrians need protection from their government. migrants say being returned to russia will see them sent back to syria to live under a regime condemned by european countries including norway. cnn, norway. >> while the spotlight is on yemen, the crisis is growing worse. isis claims responsibility for a suicide bombing on friday.
this was the second such attack in as many days. on thursday, 11 people were killed in a car bombing near the presidential palace. the ongoing violence is taking a severe toll on civilians as well. especially children. earlier we spoke with the representative in yemen about the growing conflict there. >> unicef has been in yemen for over 50 years and it has been a poor country that had chronic problems. despite that, myself, my team and my colleagues before me were able to reduce child mortality and work with the government and increase children and education. this current conflict is putting us back decades. the infrastructure and the increase in malnutrition. we are going backwards in time.
it's about 30% in many parts of the country and malnutrition is about 10%. it's preventible if not for the situation of the conflict. >> nearly 10 million children are currently in need of urgent aid. people have been standing in the cold for donald trump's rallies. how the billionaire businessman is changing the iowa caucuses. plus, we will peek inside to see how one purchaser is genetically modifying the speedos in an effort to fight human disease. you are watching cnn worldwide. covering is caring. because covering heals faster. to seal out water, dirt and germs, cover with a water block clear bandage from band-aid brand. i'm here to get the lady of the house back on her feet.

. a warm welcome back to our viewers in the united states and around the world. you are watching cnn newsroom. i'm george howell. the headlines we are following this hour, the iowa caucuses happen monday and the presidential candidates in both parties are making last minute appeals. iowa is the first state to select the person that voters want to see as the party's nominee. the u.s. state department said it is not releasing 22 of hillary clinton's e-mails saying they are labeled top secret. the e-mails were sent when she was secretary of state and not marked as classified back then. they haunted her presidential campaign. the peace talks have finally started in switzerland after days of delays. a coalition representing
opposition groups will arrive after earlier threatening to boycott the negotiations. the president of brazil said her country is losing the battle and she is calling on everyone to unite against mosquitos carrying the disease. zika has been linked to birth disorders in newborns and no vaccine or treatment is available. back to u.s. politics, nobody can deny that donald trump drummed up power. he has undeniably changed the landscape in iowa. we take a look. >> it is iowa's defining question. they will wait hours in the cold to hear him speak. will they do what it takes to deliver victory monday night? >> any questions about where to go? is everyone a registered republican already? >> thesue urare the forms to swh on caucus night.
donald trump is rewrite being the rule book. >> i'm pro ethanol. >> it's a coalition that spans the spectrum. christian conservatives, moderates, independents and newcomers by the dozens. people like shane who plans to caucus for the first time and is organizing for trump in denver and plans to deliver a speech at his local precinc. >> you have to keep going until the end. >> he learned to filter the trump rhetoric his wife finds obnoxious. >> he is not verbally correct on things. banning all muslims from the united states. okay, i read into that a little bit between the lines. i understand where you are coming from. i do like your point. he didn't come across perfect, but i understand. >> to drive iowa is to find trump support everywhere. >> i'm volunteering for the marco rubio campaign.
>> this is a mark row rubio office in cedar rapids. this is a jeb bush phone bank in des moines. both areas were mitt romney strongholds four years ago. they fight for the voters and find plenty of trump supporters. >> he changed the dynamic for everybody. >> this is rand paul's strategist. a caucus veteran who said those who doubt trump's iowa team don't know them. >> he has good people working. i trust they are doing the ground work. >> the baptist church is in tiny washington, iowa. all of welcome here. the cruz backer said he is exasperated at trump's success with conservative christians. >> donald trump has not had a life transformation moment. he had an idea to become the president of the united states
of america. >> brown leads a network of nearly 200 pastors implored to do more to highlight trump's past support of abortion and gay rights. >> it will take a miracle for people to take people to wake up to see he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. >> we loved the apprentice. >> his first vote will be for donald trump monday night. >> we need a president to run this country like a business and who better than a very successful businessman. >> carter, high school basketball player is the state leader of students for trump, another key piece of the trump-iowa coalition. >> i'm the caucus leader in my town and there is a movement going on. we have many students coming to caucus for the first time and teachers say all the time they have never heard so many students talk about an election before. >> trump dominates the talk here and now the test.
the faces that made this a caucus campaign like no other lineup one more time monday night. cnn, iowa. >> so now let's take a closer look at the iowa caucuses. they are the first nominated contest in the u.s. presidential race. the caucus is a neighborhood meeting opened to any registered voter in the party. in the state of iowa, the two parties caucus differently. republicans try to persuade each other to vote for their favorite candidate and they cast a ballot for their preference. iowa democrats caucus in a more traditional way. jonathan mann breaks it down. >> first the caucus goers gather in a public space like a high school gym. each has a representative who speaks on their behalf to sway undecided voters and everyone else too. looks like the speeches are done and now they are headed for the
candidate's corners. george washington has the most support with seven faceless people. it's time now for community discussion and persuasion. jefferson supporters are headed for the washington corner with cupcakes and every reason they can imagine for supporters to join them. they succeeded in convincing to move over to the jefferson camp. they don't have eyes, but lincoln supporters see an opportunity and is headed over to jefferson's campaign armed with lincoln's achievements. but no, the washington supporter who defected to jefferson is going back to the first support and taking a lincoln supporter with him. the taly is 8 for washington, 4 for jefferson and three for lincoln. does anyone want to change? no? it looks like the caucus is over and george wash will have his
cupcake and eat it too. >> nobody explains it like jonathan mann. the political mann has it covered. our host jonathan mann 8:30 in london. join him as he guides you through the wildest and most expensive exercise in democracy. it's time to talk weather and the snow that might impact these iowa caucuses. they don't want to hear that. >> i wondered how the caucuses played out. that was a perfect way he explained it. clarity finally. i will give you clarity on the weather that could impact the caucuses monday night. it appears that the snowstorm we have been talking about for the midwest is going to hold off just a few hours after everything crescendos on monday evening in iowa state. let me give you a run down. look at this graphic and we are
talking tuesday. we are going a few days out, but all eyes at least in the united states are focusing on iowa for monday and into monday evening. it's really tuesday when things start to get very interesting for the states in the upper midwest. we are drawing in a lot of cold air from the north. behind our low pressure and ahead of the low, we will see above average temperatures. places like atlanta to new york and washington. remember those areas that were slammed by a blizzard? the big melt continues. now the snow will be from the colorado rockies and the four corners and the plain states including iowa and the upper great lakes and the possibility of severe storms across the gulf coast states and into the tennessee river valley for your tuesday and wednesday. this is the storm developing across the four corners monday night. we will see impressive snowfall across the big ski resorts.
great news for skiers and snowboarders in utah and colorado and idaho into the sierra nevada range. as we look into the future, you can see the snow across the dakotas and into iowa. that will hold off until tuesday. we have timed this out for you just in case you are interested. if the snow will impact the iowa caucuses. we don't believe so. the snow is over southwestern iowa into the des moines region overnight on monday into tuesday and start to filter in throughout the course of the day on tuesday. you can see our iowa forecast for monday. dry and temperatures above freezing for all locations. here's the severe weather threat. that first starts across arkansas and into missouri and fires up on tuesday. this is the hot spot. nashville to memphis, tupelo and chattanooga. strong lines of thunderstorms and isolated tornado is
possible. take a look at this. i will end with this footage off the coast of france. this is a crippled cargo ship drifting slowly towards the french atlantic coast. it's about 300 kilometers offshore. very difficult sea conditions prevented teams from boarding the vessel to take control over it. everyone was rescued and removed from the ship before it teetered over at about a 50 degree pitch. they were rescued by helicopter. amazing videos off the coast of france. >> thank you for sharing the stories. you are watching cnn newsroom. we will tell you about another country reporting the first patient carrying the zika virus. stay with us. sfx: cell phone chimes start with a positive attitude... and positively radiant skin. aveeno® positively radiant moisturizer... with active naturals® soy. aveeno® naturally beautiful results®.

>> peru is the latest country to report a case of the zika virus linked to a dangerous disorder in newborns. the health minster said this national was diagnosed with zika and quick to report his symptoms to health officials. there is no vaccine or treatment that spread to at least 24 countries. it raised deep concern in medical circles and with world leaders. >> zika is no longer just a brazilian issue. it hit other countries. we are seeing the possibility of a threat to public health. we do not have experience in this. we cannot compare to anything that happened and it is still being studied. many things are to be discover and we need a clearer link
between this mosquito and the disease. >> the president went further by saying her country is losing the battle against the zika virus. she is calling on everyone to unite against mosquitos carrying the disease. one research lab is trying to do just that. >> here in the state we are the story. pandemic sweeping across the americas. more babies have been born with birth defects than anywhere else. the only mosquito that is known to transmit the virus is abundant. another research center right here is investigating whether a much more common mosquito can be transmitting the virus. it's 20 times more common. we had the opportunity chat with the doctor at the research center. take a listen to what she told us. >> here we have both species.
this is the most common mosquito in america. >> including the united states and canada? >> including the united states and canada. it's a factor of many things like west nile virus, japanese encephalitis. >> this wouldn't be the first time it transmits a disease? >> exactly. it's a factor of other viruses. >> why not zika? >> if the research shows this mosquito can carry the virus, the potential is huge to spread much more quickly and much further than initially anticipated. even the doctor herself admits there no conclusions reached yet. the findings will only be in in about a month and she will require months of field work. cnn, brazil. >> a great deal of research is
being done on this. in europe, one scientist shows how he genetically modified mosquitos to fight the disease like zika. >> they look like glowing glob uls. they represent mosquito-born disease. the virus known as zika continues to spread, linked to thousands of babies born with shrunken brains. they don't know what to do about it. there is no vaccine and fumigation is limited. a company here in england saying the key to solving the problem is more mosquitos like these. here at the labs, they have been genetically modified to produce offspring that die before growing into adults. >> i wanted to show you the males. we only release the males as they don't bite. it's the female mosquitos that
bite. they transmit the disease. as you can see, this is only the males. i can put my hand in without worrying about getting bitten. >> it's death by sex. once the je in theically modified male mates, he passes on the gene and the larva are unable to grow into adults. for tracking purposes, they glow in the dark. >> here we can see six of these mosquitos. this is a normal light. if i turn down the white light you can see the ones at the top, there is a glow around the eye. that glow is due to the genetic marker. >> why is that important? >> we look at the proportion we get back from the field and see what proportion have the gene which means they won't develop
to adults. based on that raceio, we can adjust the release rate of the males. >> the tracking shows promising results. one study done in the brazilian city showed a reduction in mosquito larva compared to a non-treated area. the spread of zika could spread into a global pandemic. who would think that the key to stopping it could be a glowing mutant mosquito. cnn, oxford, england. >> you can find out how to help fight the battle against zika from providing mosquito nets and antibiotics and other aid on the impact your world website at cnn.com/impact. when it comes to sarah palin, is tina fey better than the real thing? palin's daughter does not think so. why bristol is raising a fuss over the palin parody. covering is caring.

rushing to get free ink of candidate donald trump. the owner of this shop said he has been getting tons of calls since announcing the deal. some faithful of traveling from as far away as the state of florida to get their free trump tattoos. she is not even a candidate, not a public servant at the moment, but sarah palin remains a force to be reckoned with and a lightning rod. why audiences may be getting a kick out of the most famous impersonator. why tina fey has it all wrong. >> you may think heads are spinning. >> heads of spinning. heads of spinning. >> one critic sounds bitter. >> right winging, bitter clinging proud clingers of our guns. >> sarah palin's daughter is
