>> lincoln arrives at independence hall where the declaration of independence, his his revered document, was signed, and he raises himself the american flag over it. >> lincoln speaks about how the declaration of independence must be the guiding principle to save the union, but his speech ends with an ominous remark. >> if this country cannot be saved without giving up that principle, i was about to say i would rather be assassinated on this spot than to surrender it. >> the crowd is unaware that lincoln has been told of a plot to assassinate him. >> there is a group that has plotted to kill him on his route to washington.
>> that evening lincoln and his aides discuss their next move. >> so it would be incredibly nerve-racking to think about the debate they had, about what to do in that circumstance. do they just leave? does he carry on? >> they actually suggest that he disguise himself, that he wear different kinds of clothing. he doesn't want to do that. >> what president wants to arrive in the national capital for his inauguration as though he was afraid? >> reluctantly, lincoln agrees. for additional security, he travels on an unmarked train. still, he's taking a huge risk. he has to go through baltimore where known confederate sympathizers are lying in wait. >> the threat to his life is very real at that moment.
>> lincoln makes it to the capital. he escapes the assassin's plot, for now. inauguration day dawns on a chilly washington. >> and it's a chill that comes not so much from the weather as from the anxiety that something desperate is going to be attempted. >> the army is lined up along pennsylvania avenue in case of attack. >> lincoln has come from absolutely nothing. he has become a practiced, consummate politician, whose skills will be put to the test in the greatest national crisis of the country.

620,000 americans would lose their lives. but it will be abraham lincoln who saves the nation and abolishes slavery. >> the things lincoln worked toward are the most important things america's ever done. nothing will ever be as important as ending slavery and at least setting us on a course toward full equality. ♪
welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm michael holmes with you today. now, our top story, rescue efforts ramping up in japan after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck kyushu island, according to kumamoto prefecture. scrambling to help those trapped under buildings. 20,000 self-defense forces have been launched to help those. more than 7200 people are in shelters across the area. widespread power outages being reported. for the latest on the impact, let's bring in our cnn
asia-pacific editor andrew stevens, who joins us now live from tokyo. obviously, devastating for the people in the region. bring us up to date with the latest on casualties and what's being done. >> reporter: well, it is michael, as the prime minister just said a few hours ago, a race against time for those buried under these collapsed buildings in kumumoto city. the japanese authorities have been ramping up the rescue efforts. those 20,000 self-defense employees are expected to be in the hardest hit area by tomorrow. now, getting hard numbers at this stage is proving difficult, michael. the death toll remains at 16 but it's expected to go higher as rescuers are clear and start to probe into some of those buildings that have collapsed. certainly, it's not being made
easier by the fact there are many, many aftershocks occurring regularly there. these aren't small aftershocks either. they could have a magnitude up to 6.0. remember, this second quake was a magnitude 7.0. a much more intense seismic event. much bigger than the earthquake on thursday. when the second, that caused more buildings to collapse. the bigger, taller buildings haven't been able to withstand this. if you look at the local television pictures, you can see buildings which have collapsed, roads which have been split, bridges collapsed and also landslides, big landslides. this is quite a mountainous region in the south of japan, the southernmost island.
there are villages that may not have any aid to them at all. whoa expect the numbers to rise as rescuers look for those within the rubble. >> we look at images of people obviously running outside to try to feel a little safer. you'll have a lot of people afraid to go in back inside. >> reporter: the fear can't be underestimated by the people that live there. they've been through not one but two earthquakes in the last three days. their buildings may have been damaged, some quite seriously. an interview with an eyewitness said he hadn't been back to his buildings but he was told it was leaning at a 5 degree angle.
these people are scared, homeless. japan obviously has a lot of experience dealing with traj tragedies like this. 15,000 people were made homeless from the first earthquake on thursday. add to that you to says mosh from this latest earthquake. they're being fed and sheltered. the actual fear remains from severe aftershocks. also, michael, the weather is deteriorating over that zone. heavy rain is forecast in the coming hours, which is going to make the job of the rescuers much more difficult and the plight of those who survived much more miserable. many will have family, friends, love ones still missing. . to add to their own misery, they have to worry about what happened to their friends and family. a very difficult situation. 20,000 people will be on site tomorrow combing through the
rubble and looking after the people who have survived. >> our asia-pacific editor, andrew stevens, thanks. meanwhile, meteorologist eric van dam joining us from the national weather center. andrew, they're talking about those aftershocks. from what people are telling us, they've been endless. >> they are, every 10 to 15 minutes. this is a dynamic and fluid situation even though a major earthquake has taken place, there's rain in the forecast that will complicate rescue efforts and the aftershocks that are occurring quite regularly. that's a major concern. in total we've had roughly 80 aftershocks since the 7.0 that occurred early saturday morning local time. mpl, this is on the heels of a very strong 6.2 that occurred thursday evening local time. the difference between the two, the 7.0 expelled 15 times more
energy than the 6.2 magnitude that occurred on thursday. this is a usgs map. we're looking at the southern island region, kyushu. we'll zoom into kumamato. the dots shaded in orange happened in the past 4 hours. there's the epicenter of the 7.0. the dots shaded in yellow that's from thursday's aftershocks occurring after the original 6.2. as we zoom into this region, we're going to put on more of a three-dimensional perspective and give you an idea of what type of population density this kumamoto region has. this goes back to the original earthquake of 6.2.
we'll add on these almost cone-shaped items that will give you an indication of the population density and what kind of shaking they actually felt. the taller you see those cones, that is the higher population density. think of this like a skyscraper. the higher the skyscraper, the more people you can fit in the building, the higher the density within that particular square kilometer cone. on thursday there was severe shaking. that means even some of the more resilient structures were threatened. as we put on the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that occurred on saturday, look at the difference. first of all, just in spans, the shaking was felt in tokyo, nearly 1,000 kilometers away, but it spread across much of the extreme southern island up. now see that tall spherical structure, that's in red.
that could mean that at least widespread if not to catastrophic damage should be anticipated by the time we assess the complete effects of this particular earthquake. one more thing i want to show you f we zoom into the mountainside of this particular location, notice how the city is actually built up across extreme mountainous terrain. there is rain in the forecast. that is going to make these sides of hills very susceptible to hills and mudslides and landslides are a major concern. i'm going to get to my graphics quickly because i want to talk about the weather that's coming. currently 21. bands of rain now starting to enter the southern island region. that is all ahead of an approaching low pressure system moving off the east coast of china. that's going to bring maybe 15
to upwards of 30 millimeters of rain. worse yet, it's going to drop those tempting. hypothermia is a potential. some of the landslides they're contending with. remember, michael, rain will only continue to loosen the soil. any further aftershocks will make this a very precarious position. you can see, people have been put in extremely dangerous positions. look at that car dangling off the side of a structure. >> the geography playing a huge role and the risk of landslides, it's a very sandy soil. so, this allows for what is called liquid fiction. >> thanks so much. we'll check in with you a little later, derek van dam.

welcome back, everyone. right now in greece pope francis about to visit a migrant camp. this is a very controversial camp. the pope land on the island a little more than an hour ago for what is going to be a quick trip. cypress and orthodox leaders greeting him. atika, you are where the pope is headed at the moment. what's he likely to see there? >> reporter: we're expecting him to arrive any moment. the advance team of the motorcade is here. this is the main refugee center
on the island. he comes at a controversial time. as you remember, the turkey/eu agreement is to deport those asylum seekers who have their application. no one can come in the facility without special permission. to have the pope come and meet with refugees inside is going to have significant impact. he'll be meeting with representatives, discussing their issues. we've already seen people inside of children. there are families detained inside and children holding up signs, saying we are yazidi people, we need help. this is something that the people inside are really anticipating at this point. they really want to be able to communicate to the pope why they need -- they say they need to seek asylum here in europe and that they don't want to go back to turkey. the facility is capable of holding about 2,000 people. in fact, there are many more people than that inside. there has been heavy criticism
by aids groups, like amnesty international, saying it's overcrowded and they need supplies. it will be interesting to see what impact the pope has visiting with refugees today. >> we are looking at live pictures of the pontiff. he's arrived at the refugee camp. you know, this was a refugee reception, but it's really become in the eyes of those here a detention facility. a lot of protests and fear among those there that they're not going to get to europe, they're going to get sent back. what is the climate there among these people at what really is a detention facility. >> reporter: there is a lot of fear and anger. we say this with the fact that reporters cannot go inside the facility. this is the closest we're allowed to get to it. we hear from people inside, from aid workers inside that there is this anguish, this anger that they are in europe, so close to
where they want to seek asylum, and yet they can't seem to reach their goal. for many of them, their greatest fear is they're applying for asylum. that process could take amongs, could take longer. then they have the opportunity to appeal. if that also gets rejected, then according to this agreement, they'll be deported back to turkey. this is exactly what so many of the refugees inside do not want. this is likely to be what they express to pope francis while he's there, talking about the conditions inside. you know, it's interesting to note, one of the things he will be doing is actually sitting down and having lunch with refugees inside. we actually know the mushrooms with rice, a very simple meal, but it really shows that the pope takes this issue of refugees very seriously and he wants to make a personal connection with people inside. >> quite emotional scenes as he's shaking hands with refugees as he walks along that line.
ateak kashgs we'll let you report on how this unfolds. let's go to hala gorani. it really is a rather historic trip, a lot of firsts here, isn't it? >> reporter: right. a lot of firsts. this is the first time any pope visits a greek island. the first time pope francis has visited greece at all. as we've been reporting as well, and as we heard from atika, this is something very close to the heart of pope francis. you'll remember his first major trip outside of the vatican in 2013, highlighting the refugee crisis where many migrants and refugees crossing the mediterranean from the north african coast. the numbers to the greek coast, lesbos and other greek coasts, that number has fallen. the pope has arrived at the camp.
we are seeing him get a warm reception. we as journalists have not been allowed inside that camp. it's been extremely controversial. amnesty international reports conditions are poor, it's overcrowded. we were there a couple days ago where we saw people painted the gray graffitied walls white, some of the sewage system has been fixed, some people have been transferred out. the pope is due to meet with minors, unaccompanied children who have made this stretch across the water from turkey. that's one thing that concerns ngos most, unaccompanied minors, who have seen a lot, who are fleeing war zone atrocities and are now detained, essentially in that camp. the pope is going to have launch with his orthodox counterparts and eight refugees, a simple
rice and mushroom meal. they will be making speeches about the ongoing issues related to this refugee crisis, michael. >> it's interesting, too. i don't know how they worked out who gets to greet the pontiff but it was all what looked like young, teenaged males who got to meet him initially. it's meant to be nonpolitical. the vatican making the point that this is a humanitarian and religious visit. it was interesting that the pope tweeted earlier, refugees are not numbers. they are people who have faces, names, stories and need to be treated as such. it has to put pressure on them, doesn't it? >> sure. changed the spotlight. obviously, the vatican is not going to come out and say this is a political trip. you the inevitably by making such a high-profile and historic visit to this island, it's a way to send a message to leaders, especially european leaders in
this case, perhaps even countries that have closed their borders. it has to be said, the welcome the greeks themselves have been extended to the migrants. if you put it in context, half a million syrians, afghans, pakistanis, others, have crossed to turkey to this small island in the mediterranean in just over the last year. here, when you spoke to ordinary greeks on the island, you really don't hear that much animosity toward the refugees. it's not the negative, the fact european leaders could do more, but the fact that the greeks have done quite a lot. that's also part of the pope's -- perhaps the pope's humanitarian trip is to highlight that aspect of the story. all of that is going to end where we are at the port, michael, so i let our viewers know in terms of the geography of it all.
he will be giving a statement behind me here and we'll bring that to you live here. >> it is fascinating. it's interesting to hear what the locals have to say. i heard you on your show, "the world right now," saying historically the people of lesbos, refugees themselves from ottoman times. hala gorani there and atika shubert, we'll check in with you later as well. thanks to you both. we're going to take a short break. more on our top story coming up. that devastating earthquake in japan known to have killed more than a dozen people at least so far. rescuers trying to find survivors as we speak. also, north korea widely criticized for its nuclear ambitions and now the main ally of leader kim jong-un telling him to stop. that story coming up.
welcome back. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm michael holmes. pope francis on the greek island of lesbos to meet with migrants there. more than 2,000 of them living in limbo in a camp hoping to reach northern europe. many of them will not. the pope has called the migrant crisis the worst of its kind since the second world war. two-time citizens caught up in the china -- kenya deportation dust-up apparently say they're sorry. chinese media say they were pleading for mercy.

>> oh [ bleep ]! >> now video from thursday's 6.2 magnitude quake. it was followed by dozens of smaller aftershocks. at least nine people killed then, 800 injured and more than 45,000 people forced to leave their homes. the government sent about 3,000 emergency workers to the quake zone, who have since been joined by thousands more. let's get more now from meteorologist derek van dam on the conditions in japan. one of the problems they're dealing with there is weather. >> weather. there's rain coming in that's going to make the potential for landslides even worse. and the other thing, michael, that i'm learning here, according to the usgs, when we compare this to similar earthquakes with similar deaths, this has destruction equivalent to up to 1% of the gdp of japan.
this is significant, even though that area was very resilient to earthquakes. they're a highly prone nation to earthquakes. they know how to handle them very well. you have to imagine if you put this same magnitude earthquake in an area that doesn't have the infrastructure japan has, that this be would be even higher. >> the building codes and the like. >> let me help you by explaining this graphic to you. you'll be able too see exactly what i'm talking about. this is from the u.s. geological survey. what you're looking at is the percentage or the likelihood of the economic impact from this particular earthquake, in u.s. dollars, in the millions. between 10 billion and 100 billion u.s. dollars. that's on the high end of the gdp of japan. this is a significant earthquake. they'll be dealing with the
ramifications for several, several weeks if not years to come. this is the other story. we have rain in the forecast and heavy rain at that. this is the latest radar. we have a band that just moved east of the kumamoto region. but there is more rain in store because an area of low pressure continues to deepen just off the eastern china coastline. now, that's going to send a rain band through the area right about 4:00 a.m. local time this morning. that would be sunday morning, i should say. the other factor to this is that behind it it is going to drop temperatures significantly. so, temperatures could drop into the single digits and that's going to make hypothermia a problem for the search and rescue operations for anyone that could potentially be stuck in rubble or in collapsed building. michael, there's a look at the latest weather forecast for this area. you know, we can't help but not think about the people that could potentially still be trapped in the weather and the ramifications of aftershocks still to come. >> exactly. and as we were saying before, too, that earthquake on thursday
where you had buildings damaged there and then followed on with the stronger one. already we can -- >> compromised buildings and more aftershocks means the potential for more damage. >> thanks. derek van dam there. we'll check in with you a little later as well. thanks. well, north korea's main ally, china, now criticizing the regime for its failed missile launch. beijing says its neighbor should stop the provocations. south korea media reporting that the attempted launch on friday involved a missile that could reach the island of guam where, of course, the u.s. has military bases. cnn's will ripley joins us now live from north korea's capital, pyongyang. great to have you there. yeah, this did not go according to plan, did it? >> reporter: it didn't. although, there is still no official confirmation from the north korean government of that fact, michael. according to the u.s. and south korea, this launch happened at
5:00 a.m. pyongyang time on friday. friday, a very significant holiday, the birthday of north korea's founder and founder kim il-sung. it would have been a major announcement for the party to be able to say this technology successfully worked on that special day, the most important holiday on the north korean calendar. instead, a big disappointment and silence from the regime. you won't find any mention of a failed missile launch here in pyongyang. you will find tributes to a man north koreans call their great leader. more than 20 years after his death, north korea's founder is a fixture of daily life. president kim il-sung's port trait ha rate hangs in every home. state tv would have tauted a successful mobile missile launch as a grand triumph but the u.s. and south korea say the early morning launch failed. most north koreans will never know it happened. even those with smartphones don't have access to outside
internet. pyongyang often chooses public holidays for high-profile shows of force. in january supreme leader kim jong-un ordered an h-bomb test just days before his birthday. observers say kim is trying to project strength ahead of the crucial workers party congress next month when the young leader could gain even more power. in february he ordered a satellite launch, using a long-range rocket. models of that rocket are on display in the north korean capital. whenever i see these rockets, i feel very proud. we're all happy, says this man. kim song-wi says this is a symbol of our national dignity and the om way to protect north korea from a looming threat in the south. 17,000 u.s. service members
exercising and 300,000 south korea. promises of more nuclear and missile tests. we don't get the full picture of life in north korea, just like the people here's view is limited. international pressure, even a disappointing apparent failure won't stop the regime from developing the most power weapons it can to guard against its number one enemy, the united states. i just spoke a short time ago, michael, with a north korean government official who reaffirmed that point. a point also being made in a brand-new editorial kcna, even though they're not talking at bull about this failed missile launch, this apparent failed launch. the dprk's access to nuclear weapons is not a threat but an inevitable self-defense option for protecting the country and nation from the nuclear disaster
to be brought from the u.s. the bottom line message, the nuclear tests, the missile tests and development of this weapons technology will continue. michael? >> you know, we've talked a lot about the sanctions that have been applied and have been applied for some time, and yet still the north seems to do what it wants to do. is this a sense there that you've detected that it's almost a matter of pride to defy these sanctions and carry on as it were? >> reporter: i think that's exactly what it is. the same official i interviewed, and we'll have portions of that interview airing in the coming days, said exactly that, as sanctions get harsher, he says it inspires the people of north korea to work that much harder. a lot of the economic growth, and there has been economic growth we observed here in the capital pyongyang, that can be attributed to the very important trade relationship that north korea has with china. china is essentially this country's economic life line.
it's only major super power ally and by far the number one trading partner. if china enforces these new u.n. sanctions, chinese state media saying that can be felt in the next 12 to 16 months. walking around pyongyang, there's a number of construction projects. i counted at least six as we were driving in. people have smartphones. there are more cars, more traffic on the streets. at least for now, it does not appear that the sanctions are affecting daily life, at least here in the capital, the areas we're allowed to see, and also not affecting the military program development as well, michael. >> yeah. an important point you make there, that you are allowed to see, because there are restrictions on where you can go and who you can see. will ripley back in pyongyang for us today. now, prince william will soon be back where his mother, princess diana, took this iconic photo.

turning now to the race for the white house. u.s. democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders is at the vatican, where he did meet with pope francis. sanders and the pope were not scheduled to see each other, as the pope was, of course, preparing for his trip to greece to meet with the migrants, as we have been reporting. meanwhile, sanders has released his 2014 tax return showing he and his wife earned nearly $206,000 in 2014. they also paid about $28,000 in federal taxes. the release upholding a pledge sanders made thursday night at the cnn democratic debate to release the documents. wheen mile, former president bill clinton with some tough words for bernie sanders at a
rally in new york on friday, mr. clinton attacking his plan to break up big banks. he later said he was making a joke about sanders' unilateral explanation for what's wrong with america. >> one of the few things i really haven't enjoyed about this primary, i think it's fine that all these young students have been totally enthusiastic for our opponent and sounds so good, shoot every third person on wall street and everything would be fine, but the truth is, there are 25,000 -- i mean, 50,000 fewer people there today. the dodd/frank act is working. >> u.s. republican presidential candidate donald trump says, meanwhile, the system is rigged against him. he wrote an opinion piece for "the wall street journal" condemning the delegate process. trump particularly angry about colorado, which isn't holding a republican primary because of cost. party members will select delegates at the state convention instead.
>> the system is rigged, folks. the top republicans called up and said, donald, could you please, stop saying that? i said, i'm telling the truth. i don't care, i'm telling the truth. >> the republican national chairman committee firing back to donald trump on friday on cnn. he said the rules have been known for months and the rnc has been using the same system for years. we'll take a short break on the program.

the rals on the move again. the duke and duchess of cambridge left bhutan and will tour the taj mahal in the coming hours. one of the seven wonders of the modern world, and the royal family already has some personal history there. today prince william and wife catherine hope to create new memories there. >> reporter: it's been an incredibly colorful and ambitious trip so far, no doubt. a whirlwind tour of india, of course, bhutan. this will be the defining moment
of the tour. the duke and duchess visiting the taj mahal, behind me. not only because this is the ultimate symbol of love, but also because of the history associated with the taj mahal and prince william's mother, princess diana. princess diane ma and prince charles were back in india in 1992. they were meant to visit the taj mahal together but prince charles ended up staying back in delhi to meet with industrialists instead, so princess diana came here by herself. she took a tour of the taj mahal. at that time she told the tour guide she wished her husband had been there. then she sat down for photos on the bench, which is now called lady diana's chair. it was about a five-minute long moment. she was looking very lonely, very wistful, almost sad. a princess without her prince. and then that became an iconic image, because at that time not many people were aware that they
were not really getting along. ten months after that photograph was splashed all over the media, the world came to know the couple, prince charles and princess diana, were separating. now they will be following in the footsteps of diana, taking a photo in that area. clearly a different message. the attempt here is to try to create new memories. that's according to the royal palace. well, one of the photographers who captured that iconic image of princess diana back in 1992. he joins us now on the line. thanks for doing so. i'm curious, just describe how that day unfolded. >> well, it was the second day of the visits to india. in the planning of the visit we
knew that the -- the visit to the taj mahal was planned. it was only on the media briefing either right at the start of the tour that we knew they both weren't going to go together. the prince, in fact, was going to be attending another engagement elsewhere. so, we made our way to the taj that day, i think on a bus. when you look there at that particular photograph, if you were a lucky one and you got there in really good time, you wanted the first to that particular spot, you had to get in line, you got the princess absolutely symmetrical in the middle of the picture. my picture, you can see she's moving slightly to one side. in fact, there were about 30 photographs wanting that particular frame. >> did you have any sense at the time -- this has been long described as an historic
photograph in many ways. i've seen it described as a poignant photograph that captured a princess without her prince. of course, we all know what happened months later. the marriage fell apart. did you have any sense at the time of what this picture really meant or what it's come to mean? >> at the time we were all concentrating to taking that particular photograph. we knew it was a great picture. it's a stunning backdrop. everybody who goes to india wants that photograph taken in front of the taj mahal. we knew it was a good photograph. we thought it might be a particularly good photograph but we didn't realize it would ever have the iconic status it's since acquired. >> you've covered a lot of royal trips. you've photographed a lot of royals. this was the highlight for you? i'm curious. you've had a lot of highlights when it comes to your career.
>> i think that was a very, very special moment. it's a great setting. it was a picture, as i say, got better and better and it was actually a privilege to be there. many people go to the taj mahal, it's crowded, it's bustling. there we were able to look at it by ourselves, and to take this wonderful picture, too. it was a fantastic day. >> we've got like 30 seconds. what's it like traveling with the royals? >> it's great fun. you always go and see the best parts of the world at the nicest times. it's fast, it's furious, the long day, late evenings, early starts. of course, in those days you had to go and develop our film. there was no transmitting the picture instantly as you can do now. >> you're talking to an old newspaper man here. i know the old graham machines. i'm an old-timer like you. martin, thanks for that picture, showing our age how we used to send pictures in the old days of

welcome to our viewers in the united states and, indeed, all around the world. i'm michael holmes. thanks for your company. let's get to our top story straightaway. japan reeling after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hit kyushu island on saturday. the death toll now stands at 23. the quake struck just a few kilometers from where a so-called foreshock struck two days earlier. disaster officials say more than
7200 people are now in shelters across the area. meanwhile, rescue crews scrambling to reach people trapped under all that rubble. japan's prime minister just canceling plans to visit the disaster zone. his office says instead he's going to spearhead a task force from tokyo. let's go now to samuel bora in kumamoto. he's a u.s. citizen currently living in japan who felt the earthquake. thanks for being with us. just describe for people what it was like, that moment. >> the earthquake was very, very surprising. it came at 1:30 in the morning and shook everything in the apartment. all the dishes were broken. lots of cracks in the walls of the apartment complex. pretty scary stuff. >> i'm guessing you were there for the thursday one as well. what was the difference?
>> the thursday one came around 9:30 p.m., and most everyone is out on the street just walking home from work. and that one was mostly scary because we were able to see light fixtures from the ceiling starting to fall on the main road. and the downtown area as opposed to here where it was just pitch black in the middle of the night and everything started to go up. >> japan does have earthquakes. in some way i suppose they're to be expected. i can't imagine what these two stronger earthquakes that have done so much damage, what it must do to the psyche there. i mean, how are people coping emotionally, really? >> everyone appears to be coping rather well. japan has been very organized. here at the elementary school
shelter i'm staying at. there have been food lines and water lines already prepared since this morning. people are spread all throughout the school. everyone seems to be getting along very well. >> everyone is getting along well in the best and worst of times. does it appear everything is in hand? >> yes, everything has been going well. they had breakfast this morning. soup and lunch with noodles and everything was laid out quickly. there are cooks and voss that head up a large barbecue area and they picked everything up. there wasn't enough food for everyone, which is the only problem. most of the food went to the elderly and children first. >> really appreciate you talking to us, samuel bora in kumamoto,
living there in japan. now, let's turn to our asia-pacific editor, andrew stevens, joining us from tokyo. i was talking to samuel, the japanese very organized at the worst of times and best of times. so, what is being done now to try to get to all the damaged buildings and try to find out who might still be trapped? >> reporter: well, the rescue parties are combing the hardest hit areas, michael n that prefecture, looking for people who may still be in trouble. according to the self-defense forces, they should all be in kyushu province by tomorrow, by sunday. i want to update you, michael, on new numbers we just got from the kumamoto management sdast -- disaster management offices. they just updated their numbers.
they now say 23 people have died from that second quake. that quake happened about 16 hours ago or so. now, 23 people have died in that quake. add another nine to people who lost their lives on thursday. that brings the total to 32. they also say there's 92,000 people have now been evacuated from their homes in kumamoto prefecture, around the hardest hit areas. they're now in shelters. there are schools, aquadomes being built, all sorts of buildings being shelters for nearly 100,000 people. i can also say power has been knocked out to about 140,000 homes. more than 350,000 homes are without power. so, this is still very much a developing crisis in that area. as i say, 20,000 self high
defense force personnel are on the site or coming to the site, michael. obviously, their priority is going to be rescue at this stage as the prime minister of japan said just a few hours ago, this is a race against time, as it always is with earthquakes like this. it's reaching the people who are trapped in those buildings. and also this second earthquake is -- the impact is even more devastating because after the first earthquake, which was a 6.2 magnitude, it caused a lot of structural damage in the region. the second earthquake, the epicenter was only about 13 kilometers away. it was a much stronger force. about 15 times more powerful. so, it knocked over buildings that had already been structurally damaged. the reports we're hearing is that a lot of the bigger buildings have been damaged. we had reports, eyewitness reports of people being forced to leave their houses, which are leaning on angles very, very
unsafe. so, michael, basically at this stage it is all about rescue operations. the weather is reported to be closing in. it's going to be heavy rain forecast in the next few hours. also, of course, you have aftershocks, significant aftershocks. magnitude 4, magnitude 5 aftershocks. they're coming a few every hour. so, it really is a lot of danger still on the ground for both rescuers and those still trapped. >> indeed. we call them aftershocks but they're earthquakes on their own, aren't they? andrew, thanks so much. we have to leave it will. andrew stevens in tokyo following all that for us. we'll turn to other news for you. first to greece where pope francis and other religious leaders have arrived at a migrant camp the pope landed on the greek island of lesbos. i'm joined by hala gorani and
senior international correspondent atika shubert. both on the island ofs will bows. this is an extraordinary visit. it's a short visit. but it's a visit of firsts in many ways. >> reporter: the first time pope francis visits greece. an issue he talks about a lot. a trip he says fills him with sadness. the vatican said this wasn't a political trip. this was especially a trip designed to highlight a very important humanitarian issue. inevident reply it's going to bring up many political issues, including the european response to this refugee crisis. just to talk you through some of the remarkable images we've seen from the m hochltoria camp, und many of the refugees with women and children with the pope. atika will be there in a minute.
where i'm standing is where the pope is scheduled to deliver an address in a few hour's time. remarkably we've been told some of these boats docked here on this dock, some refugees say these are the boats they used to cross over from turkey into greece. you can see the size of this em them. you imagine 15, 20 people in one of these dinghies. it shows you what those are willing to risk to flee a war zone and hoping for a better life. what we're expecting the pope to do at some point is address the refugees themselves during a lunch, where he'll be eating a mushroom risotto. he's keeping it no thrills, michael. interesting, much of what he's going to be doing will be facilitated by a minnie van where his orthodox counterparts
are all inside this small vehicle making pit stops here and there on the island. back to you. >> it all sounds very pope francis. i was going to ask you, you've been there for a little while now. you're talking about a small island. you're talking about people who have really been have been inundated by refugees. what do locals tell you about the impact on their lives and what are their attitude towards it? >> reporter: it's interesting. you expect an island that relies entirely on tourism to be a lot more hostile toward these migrants and refugees because it's essentially destroyed the summer tourism season. the hotels are full but they're full with ngo workers, visiting officials. as far as other parts of the island that don't see the direct impact of refugees and rely almost entirely on tourism money, they're going to have a very tough year. despite that, they've actually told us, look, we get it. we are decedents in many cases of orthodox refugees from the
ottoman era, so we understand. we in our living family memory have heard stories of how tough it can be and we're still willing to extend our welcome to them. so, you have, as one would expect, haven't seen much hostility toward them, michael. >> great reporting. thanks so much. i want to go across to atika shubert as we continue to look at these pictures, which are live, by the way. the pope there with senior members of the greek clergy and meeting with the young children there in this migrant camp. atika, give us a sense of this. this was a refugee reception center. it's really become, in the eyes of many who are there, a detention center now. how important is this visit? how is it being received? >> reporter: well, we've seen incredible, emotional scenes inside the camp. the pope time after time
reaching into the crowd of refugees that want to see him shaking hands, bowing in deference to the women that are there, lifting up babies. it's really quite an emotional scene. we also saw one refugee breaking down in tears, saying, father, please, bless me and children handing over drawings they made in camp. there are more than 2,000 people in the camp. it has a capacity for just 2,000. and you're absolutely right. this is a refugee center and a detention center. where if your asylum application is rejected, you will be held here before being deported back to turkey. that's according to the latest turkey/eu agreement that was put into effect several weeks from here. pope francis has heard directly from refugees who have handed him notes, who told him in person, holding up signs,
freedom of movement, what is my crime? clearly demanding they be allowed to claim asylum in europe and move on to other countries in europe. pope francis even before coming here pointed out this is going to be a very difficult journey, an emotional one. in fact, on the plane to lesbos, he said, quote, to the reporters, this is a voyage marked by sadness. we will witness the worst humanitarian disaster since the second world war. we see so many people who are suffering, who are fleeing, and have nowhere to go. he also mentioned the fact that so many people don't even make it here. that, sadly, die on the way here. we actually had a chance to visit the local cemetery here in lesbos, which, unfortunately, has been running out of space because so many people drown on the way. high on the hill, the cemetery in lesbos cares for the unidentified dead. there are graves marked with chunks of broken marble.
christophe is the 54-year-old caretaker here. he leads us to the grave of a 1-year-old girl he calls a little angel. christophe met the parents when they brought her her. she slipped through her father's arms and she brown as he tried to hand her to the greek coast guard. i don't care what religion people are, christian, muslim or buddhist, he says, we're all flesh and bone. when our bodies go silent, we are returned to the earth. thousands of people have died making the journey across the aegean and mediterranean sea. on lesbos, more than 125 are buried here. the cemetery had to exhume and rebury bodies to make space for more. there are two things that strike you as you walk through the cemetery. first, is the number of unknown headstones you see. unknown, unknown, unknown. with only the date of death. second is the number of children
buried here. this is omar al assad, he died on october 13, 2015. like so many of the children buried here, he drowned just as he was about to reach europe's shores. >> reporter: the unknown graves often have a number painted on them. the coroner's file with dna or other information that might help identify the dead. christophe told us of one iraqi father who retraced the journey of his wife and child, only to find them buried here. these little girls were survived by their parents. they could afford a simple engraving on marble and left small toys here before moving north through europe, he says. life must go on. the numbers of people crossing has dropped dramatically since the eu struck a deal with turkey to depoerlt most of those who reach greece. christophe is sure he will still have work to do. we can send them one way, but they'll just come back another, he says. they'll still come no matter
what agreement is signed. here the graves stand as a silent reminder of just how much those crossing are willing to risk. pope francis is meeting so many of the refugees. what's particularly remarkable is that he's meeting them with the patriarch bartholomew. this is unity to focus on the plight of refugees and what they're willing to risk to come to europe, michak michael. >> great reporting. powerful story. how sad. atika, thanks. atika shubert and hala gorani on the island of lesbos. thank you, both. u.s. democrats have taken the gloves off. next, the new fiery battle between hillary clinton and bernie sanders ahead of a crucial primary. also, the north korean leader doesn't have a fresh missile test to brag about. why the failed launch came at a
crucial moment for kim jong-un. ♪ [engine revs] ♪ ♪ [engine revving] the all-new audi a4 is here. i've heard it all. eat more fiber. flax seeds. yogurt. get moving. keep moving. i know! try laxatives. been there, done that. my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know. tell me something i don't know. vo: linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements
that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under six and it should not be given to children six to seventeen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess.

unsustainable. >> reporter: for clinton, a quick visit to harlem. >> i now know where to come when i want a good game of dominos. >> reporter: before heading to hollywood for a weekend of star-studded fund-raising with george clooney. but tonight deep divisions are hanging over the democratic race after their brawl in brooklyn. >> i'm surprised many people are surprised to learn that you supported raising the minimum age to 15 bucks an hour. >> wait a minute. wait a minute. come on -- >> that is just not -- >> i have stood on the debate stage with senator sanders -- >> reporter: their voices rising. cnn's wolf blitz her to play referee. >> if you're both screaming at each other, the viewers won't be able to hear either of you. >> reporter: a fierce fight over a $15 minimum wage to a sarcastic comment over the influence of big banks. >> when millions lost their homes and life savings. the obvious response to that is you got a bunch of fraudulent
operators and they have to be broken up. >> it may be inconvenient, but it's always important to get the facts straight. i stood up against the behaviors of the banks when i was a senator. i called them out on their mortgage behavior. >> oh, my goodness. they must have been really crushed by this. and was that before or after you received huge sums of money. >> reporter: clinton expressing regret for the 1994 crime bill her husband signed into law. >> my husband has apologized. he was the president who actually signed it. i'm sorry for the consequences that were unintended and that have had a very unfortunate impact on people's lives. >> reporter: after the debate, we asked sanders, who actually voted for the bill, whether he had any regrets. >> in retrospect it was a vote that led to a lot of awful
things. you can't say in retrospect. if i had voted the other way, i would have secretary clinton say, bernie sanders, you had an opportunity to vote against the ban of assault weapons up. didn't do that. >> reporter: democrats are now a party divided. >> it's going to be important that we unify the democratic party when the nomination process has been completed. >> reporter: sanders said he would do his part if she wins and hopes clinton would do hers if she does. >> there are no democrats that i know who are -- virtually none, who will dessert the democratic party no matter who the candidate is to vote for donald trump. >> well, during his trip to the vatican, sanders did get to meet with pope francis. they weren't scheduled to meet each other. the pope, of course, was preparing for his trip to greece to meet with my grantigrants an initially sent his regrets. bernie sanders told our ben wedeman what they talked about. >> it was a lovely meeting.
he's an xroertd man. and i enjoyed the opportunity of chatting with him for a while. >> reporter: what did you discuss? >> well, i just wanted to let him know how appreciative i was of the extraordinary role he is playing throughout the world in raising consciousness about massive levels of income wealth inequality, about the greed so pervasive in the economy in that the top 1% owns more globally than the bottom 99%. also his leadership in terms of climate change. he's played a very powerful role in telling the entire world that we are moving n his words n a suicidal direction in climate and we have to transform our energy system. >> while the democratic debate was going on, the republican candidates spoke at a gala in new york. ted cruz wasn't able to hold the audience's attention, though.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and, indeed, all around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm michael holmes. thanks for your company. we'll bring you up to date with the headlines. pope francis and his greek counterparts have been meeting with migrants at a camp on the greek island of lesbos. the religious leader has just toured the camp and will sign a joint declaration before having lunch with some of the migrants. two taiwan citizens caught up in the china/kenya deportation dust-up apparently say they're sorry. chinese state media say they are pleading for mercy. kenya deported dozens to mainland china after a court acquitted them in a telecom scam. taiwan says china abducted them. u.s. presidential candidate bernie sanders had an unscheduled meeting with pope francis at the vatican on friday. the pope initially told conference attendees he couldn't see them because he was getting ready to go to greece.
sanders did speak at a vatican conference on social, economic and environmental issues and also had a quick meeng with the pontiff. we want to update on you our top story from japan where that magnitude 7.0 quake hit kyushu island. 23 people are confirmed dead. rescue crews still trying to find missing people. many feared trapped under fallen buildings and debris. japan was already trying to cover from a tremor that killed nine on thursday. derek van dam joining us from the international weather center with a look at the conditions in japan. bring us up to date. >> more than likely to get worse before it gets better. we have the aftershocks occurring roughly in a space of time every 10 to 15 minutes. there's already been 80 aftershocks since the original 6.2 -- >> 80? >> 80.
and rain in the forecast. and the potential to really impact the japan economy. let me explain. take a look at this graph i have behind me. this is according to the u.s. geological survey. we have the potential with this latest earthquake of 7.0 that happened early saturday morning local time in japan to be equivalent, the destruction here, equivalent to roughly 1% of the gdp of japan. that was roughly $4.9 trillion. if you look at the graph, we're highest likelihood between 10 billion u.s. dollars and 100 billion u.s. dollars. again, that's up to -- the highest level, 1% of the gdp of japan. major ramifications for the people going forward because we'll be assessing the damage from this particular storm -- rather, earthquake, going forward for weeks if not months to come.
this is a look at the shake map from the u.s. geological survey. i want you to notice the high population density across the kumamoto region. these pillars, these red pillars, are indicating high population densities. think of them as buildings almost. the higher the building, the higher the skyscraper, the more people you can fit inside that building. you can see that, too, with this pillar on the map kalgt a high population density within this area. that deep shading of red also indicating violent to extreme shaking. 715,000 people feeling that violent to extreme shaking. that is significant because that means even the most resilient of structures could fall susceptible to the shaking from this particular earthquake. i want to get to the weather forecast for this particular area because it's going to change, but for the worse. we have an area of low pressure
moving on of the east coast of china that will send a band across the southern islands of japan. we'll look out for the potential of 50 millimeters of rain and drop our temperatures into the single digits. the potential for hypothermia for those stuck in the rubble. >> derek van dam there, thank you. i want to take you now to the island of lesbos in greece where pop francis is giving a speech at the moria camp. >> translator: i wanted to be with you today and tell you that you're not alone. in the past months and weeks, you have suffered a great deal, searching for a better life. many of you have been forced to
flee from conflict and persecution. above all, to say you're small children. you have done a lot of sacrifices for your own families. you know the pain of having left behind everything that was dear to you. something hard to do without knowing what's the future hold and what take. many like you are at refugee camp and hope they can build a new life in this continent. >> translator: i want to tell you, you are not alone. in these weeks and months, you
have endured much suffering in your search for a better life. many of you felt forced to flee situations of conflict and persecution for the sake above all of your little children, your little ones here. you have made great sacrifices for your families. you know the pain of having left behind everything that is dear to you and what is, perhaps, most difficult not knowing what the future will bring. many others like you are in camps and towns, waiting, hoping to build a new life on this continent. >> translator: i have come here with my brother patriarch bartholomew and archbishop
leron leronimos il to listen to your own stories. we have come here in order to make the world aware of these serious humanitarian crisis and to find a solution as men of faith, we would like to join your voices and to talk openly on your behalf. and we hope that the world is listening to this tragic situation, this desperate situation, and to answer accordingly. >> simply to be with you and to hear your stories. we have come to call the attention of the world to this grave humanitarian crisis and to plead for its resolution. as people of faith, we wish to
join our voices, to speak out on your behalf. we hope that the world will heed these scenes of tragic and desperate need and respond in a way worthy of our common humanity. >> translator: god created humans to be one single family, either brother or sister is suffering. we're also suffering, too. we all know through experience how it is -- how it is for some people to ignore the suffering of others and take advantage of their vulnerability. but we also know that this crisis can bring out the best of all. you've seen it. you've witnessed these in the
greek people. they have answered generosity to your needs despite the fact of going through difficulties themselves. you have seen it also in those many people, especially the young people who have come from all over the world to help you. yes, there's a lot to be done. but we would like to thank god. god will never leave us alone in our suffering. there is always someone who will give you his hands and help you. >> when any of our brothers and sisters suffer, we are all affected. we know how easy it is for others to ignore suffering and exploit their vulnerability, but we also know these crisis can
bring out the very best in us. you have seen this yourselves and among the greek people who have generously responded to your needs and made their own difficulties. you have also seen it in the many people, especially the young, from throughout europe and the world, who have come to help you. yes, so much more needs to be done, but let us thank god, in his suffering he never leaves us alone. there is always someone who can reach out and help us. >> translator: this is the message i would like to give to you today. do not give up hope. the greatest gift we can offer is love. love to each other, merciful

free with xfinity on demand. welcome back, everyone. nigeria's senate is demanding answers from security over the missing girls. this comes from the so-called proof of life video obtained by cnn of some of the girls. a senator told cnn that the new footage adds a new dimension to the investigation. it's been two years since boko haram kidnapped 276 girls from their school dormitory. more than 200 are still being held captive. let's turn to cnn covering this story from nigeria. what strikes me is this government and the government before it have described the girls as a top priority, and yet here we are two years later still talking about it. what can we expect from this
senate hearing? >> reporter: well, what we're hearing is that the senators are really going to ask the security chiefs what exactly they're doing to secure the release of the girl -- these girls and what progress has been made? we know that the government is aware of the tape that was released to us and there are some ongoing negotiations, which clearly they won't give us much detail on. you know, the senate really wants to press the security chiefs to reassure, i think, the public. in the wake of our video coming to life shlgts there's been new hope given to nigerians and the parents that the girls are still alive and that, you know, in fact this kidnapping was not a hoax, as some people in the country believe. so, there is renewed impetus to get some information, some clear information to the public about
what really is going on behind the scenes. >> you've worked very hard on this story along with nimir and sebastien on getting this video and reporting this story so well. you know, what i find curious, are the parents, the families, the friends of these girls, what are they saying that it took you to show them this video when this video has been around for a while? are they angry at the lack of information from their own government? >> reporter: absolutely. they're very angry. they feel abandoned. some of the parents we spoke to were very angry at both the federal and the state government, and, you know, they just feel abandoned. many of these parents are living in very desperate conditions. you know, i did speak to the governor of borno state and he assures us that he's doing everything he can to provide support to the parents.
you know, he did go along on thursday to the two-year anniversary commemoration services. there, you know, he spoke to some parents. and he was visible on the ground in light -- in the wake of our video. but, you know, the parents want more to be done. some of them are quite astonished, really, that it took cnn to show them the video that clearly had been around for a little while. >> yeah. remarkable, isn't it? it really is. stephanie, remarkable reporting by you and the team. thank you. we're going to take a short break on the program. hall moviee fights with the girl. the one where he gets rejected by the girl. even stream the one where he creates the girl. with unlimited data, you can stream all the anthony michael hall movies you want. i wonder what he's up to these days maybe he's shopping in an at&t store? get unlimited data and your fourth line free when you have at&t wireless and directv.
