>> that's not from 1938, no. our construction workers occupy the dungeon for supplies, equipment and -- >> they left their tools. >> some left a couple tags inside there, yeah. >> so that graffiti is not 1938 graffiti. >> no. >> i don't want people to be thinking that you are pulling an . 45ahead this hour, the thir day of searching for clues in the egyptair disaster and still no significant find. and hillary clinton accuses donald trump of pandering to the gun rlobby. and confronting the heroin epidemic in the united states. we'll tell you about a controversial proposal from one city mayor to address the problem. live from cnn world headquarters
1:01 am
in atlanta, welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm george howell, cnn newsroom starts right now. as we mentioned, it has been three days since the disappearance of egypt air flight 804 and searches have not yielded results. hardly anything have turned up. personal belongings made up mostly of debris so far along with some human remains. the most important piece of the puzzle is the so-called black boxes. they should be able to give investigators the cockpit voice recordings and data, the flight data that is so important. both of these could offer a breakthrough this explaining what exactly happened. for the latest, let's bring in ian lee following develops live in cairo this hour. ian, obviously egypt is the lead on this investigation. what do we know about their focus today? >> reporter: again, george, the
1:02 am
main focus as it has been is going after as you said these flight recorders, trying to find out what was going on on that plane in the final moments, what was being said in the cockpit and in the cabin. and what were the instruments saying. now, we do know a bit from the a acar system which indicated there was some smoke, but that leaves a bunch more questions about what was actually happening, was there actually smoke or was there other things that tripped those sensors. so really these flight recorders will be so crucial in terming what exactly happened. but they will also be looking for the cabin, the main part of the plane to see if it shows any signs of what happened, was there an explosion on board, what possibly could they learn from that. and right now we do have parts of the aircraft which include carpet, it looks like a blanket,
1:03 am
a life vest, a pillow, as well as some personal belongings and body parts. but it really will be these other larger parts and these data recorders that will give investigators really insight into what happened. >> as we wait for these investigators to hopefully turn up more pieces to this puzzle, to find out exactly what happened to this plane, there are families that are obviously waiting for answers. what you can tell us about these families, how they are dealing with all of the uncertainty just not knowing what happened to this plane? >> reporter: that's right. and 66 people lost their lives on this flight. roughly a dozen nationalities. the majority of them are egyptian. and egypt here is a country in mourning. we've been talking with the family members after this tragedy, they are trying to
1:04 am
remember their loved ones in life and not so much focusing on their deaths. but today there will be funerals for a lot of them around the country, people will be gathering to pay their respects and pray for their lost ones even though the bodies haven't been recovered. they will hold these funerals to pray for the dead which is customary here in egypt. and when these bodies are recovered, which egyptian officials telling families yesterday it could be weeks once after they're found because they do need to do dna testing to make sure the right body gets to the correct loved one. and then they will have the burial. but today really is egypt is still in this state of mourning. we will be at these funerals to hear more about these loved ones and who they were. >> cnn international correspondent epll ian lee arri
1:05 am
live for us in cairo. now we bring in managing director the a airline jeffrey, always good to have you with us. i want to focus in on what we know at this point. we know about the acar data. what could this possibly tell us? >> yes, the acar data is really giving us some clues that there was a catastrophic event that brought this aircraft down. the exact cause is really just speculation at this stage. although whatever it was, it was major and it was catastrophic. so one would have to draw from that a conclusion that it was an explosive device of some kind that blew out cockpit windows, causes the avionics bag in the
1:06 am
lavatory to have a fire, set off alarms. and this all happened within two minutes. so it's not something that was under control, it was completely out of control. and therefore the plane has been lost. it then spiralled down out of control and impacted the ocean and clearly from the debris we have seen that was a fairly significant impact and total loss of life. >> and we're looking at some of that debris that was recovered. the search continues and the focus is to find the fuselage and flight data recorders. jeffrey, how important are those pieces to this puzzle? >> they're absolutely critical. there have been a few reports that the black boxes have been located, but the egyptian authorities have it is missed those and said they're incorrect. finding these black boxes is imperative. it's going to be a challenge
1:07 am
because it's 3,000 meters deep. they have to get the right equipment into position and then once they have located them through their team, which lasts about 30 days, they then have to recover them. now, it took us putting this in context with air france 447 which was lost in 2009, same thing. we had debris field on the ocean surface, it took them two year it is to locate the plaqblack b and fuselage. so we should not yupd estimaund the challenge in front of us because this airplane is lying at exactly the the same depth, 3,000 meter ares. so it's a very, very challenging mission in front of those rescue teams. >> but making the obvious comparison here, when you look at like an mh 370 search for instance, you didn't have the oil slick that was identified on satellite and obviously
1:08 am
investigators weren't able to find the debris that they're finding in this case. so tease are very different searches i would surprise amise this is a little more focused. >> there are a lot more resources obviously. mediterranean, a lot of countries will be involved, it's far more successable as far as getting to the location. even air france, it's a fairway from anywhere where has mh 370, same thing, a long coast from the western australia, 2,000 kilomet kilometers. so vastly different challenges between those three crashes. this one, and i hate to use the word easier, will be somewhat easier, but nothing is easy about this. this is very, very challenging. and hopefully we can have a significant find a lot sooner than we did with air france 447
1:09 am
which was two years. >> jeffrey thoch mas live for u via skype. thank you for your insight. as this investigation continues and crews scour the mediterranean looking for wreckage amend also recovering human remains, families of those on board are saying can good-bye. family of a flight attendant gathered saturday in cairo for a memorial service remembering the 25-year-old and they dressed about in white rather than dressing in the traditional black. >> translator: she loved going out, she loved her friends, she loved her family. she was very adventurous and she really loved her work. it is such a shock for everyone. she was young, she's never been married, but i accept this is god's fate. >> translator: we did everything together. i just can't believe this. i don't even know what to say about her. i feel like i'm in a dream.
1:10 am
she loved her work. we would always travel together. we went everywhere together. >> these families are dealing with such grief. the investigation and search continues in the mediterranean and cnn's becky anderson sat down with egypt's foreign minister, he stretched how crucial it is to locate these black boxes as they're called and how egypt is relying on their international partners in this investigation. listen. >> there have been claims of smoke in the cabin before it crashed. what do you know about those claims and how might that inform the investigation? >> i'm sure it's being verified that the technical people are looking into it. i'm not certain that it can be conclusive in any determination one way or another, but it is certainly an important element in a jigsaw puzzle that has to be fully compiled.
1:11 am
so the investigation will take this into account and evaluate it accordingly. >> there are a rot of a scenarios in response to what you are hearing and meaning. i think we should all be careful. there are some that are farfetched and only pure speculation. those are it is cdisconcerting. >> and of course we will continue to cover this investigation and the search. other news, u.s. officials believe that an air strike has killed the leader of the taliban in afghanistan. it was part of the result of a drone strike on a vehicle near the pakistan/afghanistan border
1:12 am
killing mansour here according to a u.s. official. but it may be a while before the deaths are confirmed. president obama authorized the strikes. funerals are being held in baghdad this weekend for demonstrators killed by iraqi security forces. the security forces opened fire when protesters stormed on friday protesting government corruption. about 50 people were wounded. it is unclear how many died. the uncle of one protester said troops should have held their fire. >> translator: he's still young. all he did was protest with the people calling on the government to solve our corruption. >> meanwhile isis is claiming responsibility for a suicide attack in a town near baghdad on
1:13 am
saturday. a suicide bomber blew himself up at a busy outdoor market. at least nine people were killed and 22 other people wounded. 4:12 on the u.s. east coast. still ahead, bernie sanders is still on the chase. plus donald trump claims he's rich, but it's not easy to find out how much he's actually worth.

1:18 am
unlike donald trump, i will not pander to the gun lobby and we will not be silenced. and we will not be intimidated as long as children anywhere are being killed by gun violence, we will keep fighting for our kids because they deserve a president who stands up for them and stands with the mothers here. their lives are valuable. p. >> clinton there talking about donald trump, but still competing in the democratic side of things, she has a nearly in-sur moiptable lead in the race for her party's nomination, but fellow democrat bernie sanders is still on the hunt. he spoke at an event in new mexico on saturday ahead of it that state's primary next month. sanders is facing accusations that he's dividing the party at a time that it needs to unite against donald trump. but he promises that democrats are will prevail over the republican frontrunner.
1:19 am
listen. >> donald trump will never be elected president because the american people will not support a candidate who insults mexicans and latinos, who insults muslims or women, who insults african-americans or veterans. our job is tobly our people together to create a government that works for all of us, not just the 1%. and we will never allow people to divide us up. >> clinton leads sanders not just in the primary popular votes, but also in superdelegates. sanders has pledged to continue his campaign all the way to the democratic national convention.
1:20 am
theoretical theoretically, he even has a chance to win there, but as tom foreman explains, the super delegates give clinton an edge. >> take a number at what they must get to clinch at the convention and look how they're dividing the pledged delegates so far. these are the delegates who must vote this way at the convention because that's how their states voted. and there are about 800 o outstanding in the remaining since states plus puerto rico and district of columbia a. he could catch her if he wins 70% of what is left, that is outperforming of what he's done so far. but these people could get in his way. the super delegates. what are they and how are they
1:21 am
so powerful? let's start with some math. let's say we have horn 20 million people who have voted so far in democratic primaries and at this point we have this many pledged delegates out here. divide them and what you're able to say is that each delegate represents about 7,000 actual votes by actual people. superdelegates have just as much power, but they are not accountable to the vote of the people. they get to vote as they please. and right now they're dividing decidedly in hillary clinton's favor. bernie sanders has only 42 saying they will back him at the convention, she has 522. why such a disparity? it has to with with the makeup of the superdelegates themselves. these are largely members of the democratic national committee, they are big elected democrats like governors and senators, and they are party leaders. in other words, this is mainly the part i establishment. they were put in place back in the 1980s specifically to make
1:22 am
sure that there was no populist movement that would saddle the part theity with a candidate that the party didn't necessarily want. and right now, the superdelegates are showing very little interest in helping bernie sanders get this nomination. >> tom foreman there explaining superdelegates and how they will factor into this. donald trump is making an appeal to latino evangelicals. he recorded this message for more than 1200 latinos attending the national hispanic christian leadership conference. listen. >> we're going to do massive tax cuts especially for the middle class and people that are poor are going to pay nothing. they're struggling, it's tough, and under my plan which is filed at donald j., you will see it's nothing, absolutely nothing. you're going to get it, we'll bring back jobs, you will start paying taxes after you're making a lot of money and hopefully that will be soon. we're going to stop drugs from
1:23 am
pouring into our country. we're going to strengthen our borders. people will come into our country, but they will come in through a process, they will come in legally, but we will stop the drugs. i want to thank all the groups and committee takes as that ask this. national hispanic christian. three great words. >> there are been many questions surrounding trump's wealth. cnn money looked into his latest federal financial disclosure form to find somene answers, bu it is difficult to assess just how much donald trump is worth. >> reporter: it's donald trump's pitch to the american people. i biuilt a fortune for myself ad i can do it for the country. >> you see the wine. i've done great.
1:24 am
and that's the kind of thinking you will need. >> reporter: just how great has trump done? financial disclosures he's filed with the federal election commission may be long, but they're short on specifics. >> the form stndoesn't call for great deal of detail. it allows you to report ranges of income rather than exact amounts which is a little different than a tax return that you might file with the irs. >> reporter: but the government doesn't require trump to release his tax records. the long disclosure document is the only official window into trump's wealth. the most recent filing was assets of at least $1.4 billion from january 2015 through may of 2016, excluding investmentinves includes at least $611 million of income according to our sally. but items hard to tell whether that income is actually flowing in to trump's pockets or into his company's coffers. >> it lists revenues rather than
1:25 am
income. he has for example for his golf courses golf-related rev neenue. so it makes it difficult to know, is that just the gross revenue of his golf course or is that actually the income to donald trump after he pays august the expenses in running the golf course. >> reporter: in the end the distinct may not matter, at least not to the government. the disclosure form is supposed to find potential conflicts of interest, it's not a check on the candidate's math. and trump's math has always been hard to verify says author tim o'brien. trump sued him kraming oclaimin low balled his net worth. the case was dismissed. >> he always has some humongous figure for goodwill and branding. he says the trump bland is worth a many billions and that's just donald sit being around eating a cheeseburger saying i'm worth x.
1:26 am
>> reporter: trump claims a net worth in excess of $10 billion. forbes and wealth x put it closer to $4 billion. we reached out to the trump campaign, but didn't get a comments. short of an independent audit, all we really know for sure is this. >> i'm really rich. >> reporter: cnn money. the u.s. president barack obama is scheduled to arrive in vietnam in about nine hours time. mr. obama left washington, d.c. on saturday. he will spend three days in vietnam. the trip is meant to promote trade ties and to counter china's agreeing assertiveness in that region. 4:26 on the u.s. east coast. and still ahead, we continue to follow developments on the egyptair plane crash. a live report from paris from the airport there where the plane made its final takeoff. plus thousands of people die a
1:27 am
year from heroin overdoses in the krununited states. the growing epidemic. you're watching cnn newsroom.
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. you are watching cnn newsroom. good to have you with us. i'm george howell with the headlines we're following for you this hour. u.s. officials say a drone strike has likely killed taliban leader mullah mansour. the white house is waiting for final confirmation.
1:31 am
president obama authorized the strike. funerals were held in baghdad on saturday for demonstrators killed by iraqi security forces. the security forces opened fire when protesters stormed the green zone on friday. it is unclear how many died. a high ranking u.s. commander made an unnoannounced visit to northern syria on saturday. he met with local forces that the u.s. military is training to fight isis. the u.s. has been accelerating efforts to bring in arab and kurdish forces into the battle against isis in syria and iraq. the search continues over the mediterranean sea for the wreckage of egyptair flight 804 and so far teams have found very little, mostly personal belongings. they are hoping to find the so-called black boxes which may hold critical information to figuring out what happened to this jet. just before the plane dropped
1:32 am
off radar early thursday, it sent out automatic messages indicating smoke in the front of the aircraft. for more, max foster joins us at charles de gaulle airport in paris. max, good to have you with us. france obviously is taking part in this investigation. at one point physicians sfish o they are not ruling anything out. what is the latest that we're hearing? >> reporter: there is a huge amount of frustration because there have been no official updates at all. we still have a situation where it could still be anything from a small technical fault to a bomb that could have brought it down. there is no evidence that it's either of those things and no official confirmation of any french victims either. so that formal level of investigation hasn't even started here, although we do understand that obviously when there is a terror consideration they will be going through all the video footage and working out who hadding a says to the plane here while it was parked on the tarmac. but at the moment, a huge frustration for the families because there are no official
1:33 am
updates. all we have is those messages that were sent out from the aircraft which the media reported on and only then did the french officials confirm even that. >> max, i'd like to delve just a little kedeeper is what is happening at charles de gaulle. officials not ruling neglect out, no speculation on whether this is terrorism, mechanical issue. but there are steps that are being taken at that airport to make sure that they have some understanding of who has access to those planes. >> reporter: there is pressure to add extra screening of passengers here, bringing if british technology, we expect that to be brought in this week. they were plans to bring that in before this latest plane went down. but we also have the update that more intelligence officers would be based here at the airport, which must be linked with this idea that people are being --
1:34 am
workers here are risk of radicalization. we know since january of last year, 85 workers have lost their security passes because there was concern about them being radicalized or being open to radicalization. having intel defenligence offic based here would be that they're trying to get all the latest talk from workers and the like. it's always a risk in airports no matter how good the security that the weak link is the people that work here. but having said that, very high security levels here already. we high levels of screening. workers have the same level of screenings as the passenger for example. much higher level of screening than they have in the united states. there is only so far that they can go with security levels. but they clearly are trying to reassure the public that charles de gaulle security measures are as high as they can be. and that's 34r5urly looking ahead for example to big events like the euro football championships that are being held here this year, trying to make sure that people don't feel
1:35 am
that it's an unsafe place to travel to. but all this uncertainty about whether it was terror, whether it wasn't terror, is adding to people's concern. even yesterday on cnn we had the ex-director of the cia suggesting that he would position twice about traveling from charles de gaulle, which increases the pressures on authorities here to reassure the public. >> live at charles de gaulle airport in paris, max foster. thank you so much and we'll stay in touch with you. these so-called black boxes, they will be key in unraveling the mystery behind flight 804's disappearance, but that term in itself, black box, it's a bet of a misnomer since what they're actually looking for is orange. rachel crane explains this key piece of the puzzle. >> reporter: the search for survivors always comes first, but just as important is the search for answers. the why and the how. often those answers are found in
1:36 am
the black box. since the '60s, all commercial airplanes have been required to have one on board. the name is little misleading because they're actually orange and when we're talking about a black box, we're talking about two different boxes. oning the cockpit voice recorder, the other being the flight data recorder. together they weigh anywhere between 20 to 30 pounds. and they have to be crash-proof. black boxes can survive just about anything. temperatures up to 2,000 degrees fahrenheit for an hour. forces take are 3400 gs. now, that's 3400 times the force of gravity. they're waterproof and they can save data for two year. the voice recorder records the cockpit conversations and background noise. experts can determine if a stall to being place, rpms of the engine and the speed at which
1:37 am
the plane was traveling. when they're cross-referenced are ground control conversations, they can even help searchers locate a crash site. and then there is the flight day recorder. gathers 25 hours of technical data from airplane sensors, recording several thousand it is create pieces of information. air speed, altitude, pitch, acceleration, roll, fuel, and the list goes on and on. but to make sense of the data, first you have to find it. p not an easy thing to when a plane crashes in to the ocean. both black box components are outfitted with underwater beacon which is self activated. they send pings once per second. and can transmit data from at least 25,000 feet for up to 30 days. but on land, there is nopinging search. >> rachel xwrcrane reporting fo

1:41 am
welcome back to cnn newsroom. in the united states, drug addiction to heroin and other opioids is a growing epidemic. in fact deaths from overdoses of prescription drugs and heroin is the leading cause of unintentional death for americans, this according to the centers for disease control. and that number continues to rise. many users start out abusing prescription opioids and then turn to heroin. democratic candidates hillary clinton and bernie sanders have been weighing this on this crisis on the campaign trail. listen. >> the painkillers often lead to
1:42 am
heroin, bothover to doses and thousands of people in america a year are tieing from overtoeses. so we have to do more and we'll do that together. >> when we talk about drugs, let's all acknowledge that this country today faces a major crisis in that we have an epidemic of opiate and haeroin addiction. it is true in my state and all over this country. people are dying every single day from overdoses of heroin or opiates. this is an issue we have to deal with. now, i think that the most effective way to deal with that issue is to understand thatted a
1:43 am
decisi addiction and substance abuse should be seen not as a criminal issue, but as a health issue. >> it is an issue that is being prominently discussed on the campaign trail. one u.s. town has come up with a controversial solution to the crisis. the mayor of ithaca, new york has proposed opening supervised injection sites. it's a model that has worked in other countries. the idea is that overdoses would be prevented if the drug were used in a monitored fashion. here is a look into that town's efforts. >> the heroin epidemic has touched our beautiful community here in ithaca, new york. probably right now about the worst we've ever seen it. we've had a total of 11 fatal overdoses since 2005. seven of those 11 were in the last two years and four of those
1:44 am
seven were in the last 30 days. >> david william adam, 1972. >> first time i heard it, i thought it sounded like you were just enabling people to use drugs. but truth is in places where it's worked, us a rail i can't, europe, canada, more people get off of drugs.i can't, europe, canada, more people get off of drugs. people are 30% more likely to enter into treatment and 100% less likely to die. it's very low key. you can walk in, sign in, one or two people on staff and folks inject and if they overtoes, they are saved by the person on the staff. but before they leave, they're provided with information about treatment. >> i started using 26 years ago. you know, when you first use opiates, it's a sensation of
1:45 am
bliss. and then one day you wake up and you feel significant and then it becomes a matter of you have to use opiates to stay well so you can function because people have responsibilities in life. things are great right now. things couldn't be going better. and i really owe that to the exchange for the most part. they helped me to get a methadone, they stuck by me after i had screwed up repeatedly, you know, and i can't begin to express my gratitude for that, you know? >> so the exchange is a public health initiative and the main goal is to prevent new cases of hiv and hepatitis c. we provide supplies to anyone who needs them. syringes, vessels to mix drugs in, anything a person might need to inject safer. personally, i see safe injection facilities as the next step to syringe exchange.
1:46 am
>> what we need especially is state approval. i'm living a nightmare. in my city, we lose too many people, too many brothers and sisters are dying. >> for obvious reasons i can't support a supervised injection facility. the reason for that, i'm a law enforcement officer, i took an oath to uphold the law and right now under the law heroin is considered an illegal substance. if it's allowable under the law, so be it. we will certainly conform with the law. but currently it just isn't. you know, it's clear now that we can't arrest our way out of this problem. we need to offer whatever services we can to try to change behavior, to treat this as a medical problem, and restore these people.
1:47 am
i don't know how better to put it. >> it is a complicated issue. earlier this month, u.s. house speaker paul ryan spoke on the u.s.'s heroin and opioid epidemic. he promised legislation to tackle the issue by going after foreign sources of the drugs. listen. >> today the house continues to work on legislation to address the heroin and opioid epidemic across this country. this this allows prosecutors to go after drug traffickers in foreign countries if we believe their drugs will make to our shores. >> ryan went on to say the opioid epidemic impacts all demographics and u.s. families everywhere. he lost a leg in war, but that only encouraged this former soldier to scale the heights most of us only dream about. stay with us. you won't see these folks at the post office. they have businesses to run.
1:48 am
they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? mail letters, ship packages, all the services of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to and never go to the post office again. burning of diabetic nerve pain, these feet were the first in my family to graduate from college and trained as a nurse. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you.
1:49 am
those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. ask your doctor about lyrica.

take a look at the ash from this volcano. the plume of smoke hasn't stopped since eruption on friday. wind is blowing the ash west toward nearby san jose.
1:52 am
the activity has caused flight delays and elevated health hazards throughout the region. local reports say the volcano threw ash and rock some 3 kilometers, that's nearly two miles in to the air. let's bring in our meteorologist derek van dam. >> can you imagine seeing that? 3 kilometers of ash spewing right into the atmosphere. i would move away and i have a couple images of people doing just that. these eruptions have been occurring since wednesday of last week and now here is a look of the ashdrifting into a san jose suburb. there is 50 kilometers from the actual volcano itself. evacuations for villages nearest the volcano, in fact there was and its eye's been know that ash
1:53 am
can burn your skin, so some people were hospitalized for that. i talked about images of people leaving town and here is a few of the local residents and tourists trying to at least protect themselves by wearing masks and another image i'll show you of a few farmers trying to exit the region. this is just to give you a geographical reference point. again, this is east of san jose, capital of costa rica. here is a look at the farmers evacuating the zone around this particular volcano. i have to switch gears because there is another big weather story that we've been talking about for the past several days and that is a cyclone that has

impacted bangladesh. this area is so extremely susceptible to damage from cyclones because they have very little geographical mountains to work with in this area. it's extremely flat. we're talking about sea level of about 0 to 10 feet above the ocean. so you can imagine that coastal storm surge can easily inundate this region especially when you have excessive rainfall that is over 15 inches in some locations. we're talking about northeastern india, bangladesh and into myanmar, thanks to the remnants of a tropical cyclone that is dissip dissipating, but still has the chance to bring flooding. and take a look at this video of the damage taking place there. and george, it's tough to talk about, but unfortunately, there are some fatalities with this particular system, as well, 21
1:55 am
so far confirmed. >> thank you so much. want to tell you how to about chad, maimed for life in iraq, but now the former u.s. soldier is approaching the summit of mountain everest. they have been climbing to benefit veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. here is his story. >> personally i've lived with ptsd as have many of my soldiers with whom i served. i'm here to try and help the american public realize that this is a very serious issue and we need to do everything that we can to address it. knowing that i'm here to climb mt. everest, it was pretty
1:56 am
amazing and overwhelming to initially look up at the peak and think, wow, i'm going there. >> most of foreseeable challenges that i could have climbing mt. everest with a roth the prothesis, i've been able to mitigate through experience and planning. i'm very proud of the work we've done raising awareness while climbing this mountain. >> incredibly inspiring. we thank you for being with us this hour for cnn newsroom. i'm george howell at the cnn center in atlanta. i'll be back after the break with more news from around the world. thank you for watching cnn, the world's news leader.

scouring the scene for more debris. searchers look for crucial parts that might explain what happened to egyptair flight 804 while families still wait for answers. plus, this. >> unlike donald trump, i will not pander to the gun lobby. >> hillary clinton sends out a firm message after donald trump picks up a big endorsement. and u.s. veteran who lost his leg fighting against the invisible rules of war by climbing the tallest on the
2:01 am
planet. from cnn world headquarter, welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm george howell. cnn newsroom starts right now. it is the fourth day of searching. teams comb the mediterranean combing the wreckage. doomed 804 and so far, found very little. some personal belongings. some human remains. investigators hope that the plane's so-called black boxes will be found soon to bring some answers about what went wrong. french aviation officials say the plane was sending out automated messages indicating smoke near the cockpit which confirms the data seen in the spring shots. the jet was heading from paris to cairo when it dropped off radar early thursday morning and then crashed at sea. now we are hearing from the pilot while the plane was on an earlier leg of its last journey.
2:02 am
this is a routine transmission of air traffic control as this flight headed through swiss airspace. >> hello, egyptair. 804. contact. >> thank you so much. >> egyptair 804 contact padova control. >> good night. >> the very latest on the investigation. our ian lee is following developments live in cairo, egypt, with us this hour. good to have you. egypt is taking the lead. what more from their side of this? the focus of the investigation today. >> reporter: george, we're hearing from egyptian officials, investigators out there on the water. what they're trying to do is get the exact coordinates of where all the wreckage is being found and trying to determine the size
2:03 am
of the wreckage field where everything is and then bringing it together. initially, the wreckage is going to be transferred for hearing in an egyptian military base and from there once gathered, it will be brought here to cairo, taken to the cairo international airport where they will start going through it further and trying to get a better sense of exactly what happened and officials saying that they hope to have a preliminary report out within a month's time. but really, right now, the main part of the search is, again, looking for the fuselage and those voice recorders and the data recorders trying to see what more we can learn from that acars report that said it detected smoke. was it a mechanical issue or terrorist attack? all theories are possible. >> so few answers. so many families that are just waiting for some understanding
2:04 am
of what happened to this plane. ian, talk to us about what these families are doing. how they are dealing with what happened. >> reporter: this has definitely been a tragedy not just for the families but for all of egypt. i have spoken with a few of the family members and when you do talk with them, they talk about the lives they live. the co-pilot being described as the life of the party and talk to a couple about him saying he was a kind man looking forward to getting married and today, there will be a lot of funerals for the egyptians who died in the crash which is customary here in egypt. once they know that the person is dead to have a funeral, at least within a few days after they're certain of that and they will be praying for those they lost as well as taking a
2:05 am
condolenc condolences. when the bodies are found, which could take some time, the egyptian government said they'll need to do dna testing to make sure the bodies get to the correct family members and then that could attack up take up to. it could some time before they're actually able to bury their loved ones. 66 people died in this crash from a dozen nationalities. egyptian officials, again, wanting to make sure the right bodies get to the right loved ones. >> cnn international correspondent, ian lee live for us in cairo, egypt. we'll stay in touch. now let's get some context on the status of this investigation. aviation expert julian bray joins us now to talk more about this situation. let's first talk about the acars da data. the information we know right now, what could it possibly tell us? >> it's interesting.
2:06 am
acars is rather like a list you prepare when you take your automobile in there for servicing. what actually happens is there are a series of sensors all over the aircraft and when the aircraft is taking off and when the aircraft is descending, acars springs into action and on the a.m. band will squawk out a series of messages. each message is less than one second in lenlt and length and status of the flight. they've got a list and that's what it does, purely for the engineers. h now, acars has a limited range. it will work basically on land. won't work in the middle of the sea and there's a radius from various airports and various beacons. so it would appear that the
2:07 am
plane was just beginning its descent into cairo. it was just inside the egyptian air responsibility, if you like, and managed to get out those messages before everything went dead. so it was just starting its transmission. so the smoke alarms, although they're timed at a certain time, the smoke might have been there for, well, 30 or 40 minutes because it's not realtime indication. because all the messages are sent as one bunch, if you like, as it's entering into its final descent. >> u.s. officials suggest a bomb might have been involved in this plane going down. egypt suggested that terrorism might be to blame. french officials saying at this point, they're not ruling anything out. they're looking for this thorough investigation, but what we do know is the search is on now for the fuselage, the flight
2:08 am
data recorders. explain to viewers around the world how important these pieces of the puzzle are to answering some of the questions that we're all asking. >> reporter: yes. we've actually been in a frustrating stage of the investigation, search like this. we want things to happen quickly. unfortunately, the officials have to do it meticulously. they have to locate the actual aircraft. once they locate the aircraft or the remains of it, they have to determine what happened to it because it won't be in one piece. it will be spread over an area. and we don't know how wide this area is. the only good thing is if it can be a good thing is that part of the mediterranean is fairly level. it's deep, but it's level. there are a series of underwater mountain ranges. that would make it exceptionally
2:09 am
difficult. now, once they've located it or bits of the fuselage, they will then map it. and they will photograph it. and they'll send out probes to search and have a look at it and eventually send an underwater submersible, possibly with an operative inside and he can literally cut away at the fuselage to get at those black boxes. there are two. there's a flight data recorder an a flight voice recorder. the voice recorder gives you 24 hours of chats on the flight deck and the cockpit, if you like, and the data recorder will tell you everything that's happening to that aircraft, every relay, every electrical relay that was switched or whatever will be on this disk. that's why we want to get this back. to help us, there are located beacons attached to these black boxes and as soon as they hit
2:10 am
water, they send out sounds but the deeper it gets, the harder it is and the battery life about 30 days but they've been known to go on for 60 or 90 days possibly. >> certainly the clock is running, you know, as the search continues. >> reporter: it is. >> julian gray, we appreciate your insight and stay in touch with you as this investigation continues. >> thank you. >> cnn's becky anderson sat down with egypt's foreign minister. he stressed how crucial it is to locate the black box of the flight recorders and how they are relying on international partners in the investigation. listen. >> primarily, it is the location of the aircraft and the ability to extract from potentially very deep waters the black box and the data recorders. we do not, i think, have the technical abilities to operate in such deep waters where many
2:11 am
partners might have the facility and then of course, various aspects of the investigation and this will conform to international regulations where all who are involved whether it is the producer of the aircraft, producer of the engines, an american company or the nationalities of those who have lost their life. so it will be conducted within the international that govern and we rely on close cooperation of our partners in this regard. >> the technical experts who might be willing to offer their help from the u.s. >> definitely. definitely. >> willing to engage. >> of course, definitely. and there are a lot of capabilities i think we have to take advantage of in forensic science and the ability to extract the parts and to reassemble the aircraft. quite a burden and an arduous
2:12 am
job but i think more expertise and knowledge and ability in this regard and the more cooperation, i think, the better off for everyone to be able to come to a final conclusion. >> more of becky's interview. the full interview on "connect the world" with becky anderson at 4:00 p.m. in london and 11:00 p.m. in hong kong. only here on cnn. top afghan leader likely been killed in a drone strike. he was targeted while traveling in pakistan near the afghanistan border. the white house is waiting for confirmation for the death of mullah mansour. it may not necessarily disrupt taliban operations. >> you see leaders taken out by drone strikes in many countries frequently whether it's iraq or syria or yemen, in afghanistan
2:13 am
and pakistan and quickly pick another successor and they'll go on and sometimes they won't be weaken. they will continue. the hope here is that the leader is essential enough to the operation that it will at least affect operations for some time, but no one's under the impression, even u.s. officials, that by killing this man, it's the end of this organization. they know it's a battle that might take years and you have a strike like this, but at the same time, the taliban has been able to carry out numerous attacks in and around the country with great effect. >> u.s. officials say a second man traveling in the same vehicle was also likely killed in the strike. isis is claiming responsibility for a suicide attack in iraq. security officials say a suicide bomber blew himself up at a busy

2:18 am
put on by the trayvon martin foundation. that organization is named in honor of an african-american teenager killed in a fatal shooting. >> parents, teachers, and schools should have the right to keep guns out of classrooms. just like donald trump does at many of his hotels, by the way. this is someone running to be president of the united states of america, a country facing a gun violence epidemic, and he's talking about more guns in our schools. he's talking about more hatred and division in our streets. even about more nuclear weapons in the world. that's no way to keep us safe. if you want to imagine what trump's america will look like, picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry. picture more anger and fear.

2:21 am
i've done great. and that's the kind of thinking you're going to have to need. >> how great has trump done? the financial disclosures filed may be long, but they're short on specifics. >> the firm doesn't call for a great deal of detail but allows you to report income and then exact amounts which is different than a tax return you might file with the irs. >> the government doesn't require trump to release his tax records, the long disclosure document in the only official window into trump's wealth. it was assets of $1.4 billion from january 2015 to may of 2016. excluding investments, it includes $611 million but hard to tell if it's flowing into pockets or into his company's
2:22 am
coffers. >> he lists revenues rather than income. he has golf courses, golf-related revenue. it makes it a little bit difficult to know. is that just the gross revenue of his golf course or is that actually the income to donald trump after you pay for all the expenses and running the golf course? >> reporter: in the end, the distinction may not matter. at least to the government. the financial disclosure form supposed to find conflict of interests. not the check on the candidate's math and trump's math has always been hard to verify, said author tim o'brien. trump sued him saying he lowballed his net worth. the case was dismissed. >> he estimates his own net worth, he has a humongous figure for goodwill and branding. he has said the trump brand is worth x many billions and that's
2:23 am
just donald sitting around saying i'm worth x billions of dollars. >> he claims net worth in excess of $10 billion and forbes put it closer to $4 billion. we reached out to the trump campaign but didn't get a comment. short of an independent audit, all we know for sure is this. >> i'm really rich. >> reporter: cristina alesci cnn money. >> on the democratic side of things, bernie sanders is in an increasingly bitter feud with the chair of the democratic national committee. in an interview set to air on cnn's state of the union, sanders said he favors congresswoman's debbie wasserman-schultz in the primary and favored hillary clinton in the presidential race and if he becomes president, he wouldn't keep wasserman-schultz as dnc chair. she responded to sanders' comments and says she remains
2:24 am
neutral in the democratic primary process. you can catch on state of the union with jake tapper. starting today, there is a multiday severe weather outbreak across the central part of the country. >> george, you know, this severe weather outbreak is coming on the five-year anniversary of the joplin, missouri, tornado that took place on this date five years ago in 2011. it was ef 5 tornado. multiple vortex. one mile wide at its largest point in the southern portions of the city and unfortunately, 158 people perished and 1,000 people injured and this was one of the most costliest tornadic outbreaks to occur. $2.8 billion in damage. that's not to say that today we're going to see that type of a set-up but it's definitely
2:25 am
worth noting that five years ago, so many people's lives, so many families changed forever. now take a look at this. we've got a very slow moving weather pattern for the next several days. that's going to set up this severe weather potential. it's really forming across the central u.s., the high plains. it will eventually shift eastward. more on that in just a moment. but we tap into the gulf moisture. cool air settling in from the north and you know what happens when we get the clash of air masses. we get the chance of severe weather. here it is broken down for you. right through lincoln nebraska, dodge city and dallas. large hail, damaging winds and can't rule out the potential of isolated tornadoes throughout the course of the day today. on monday, we see the impact much in the regions and a slight tilt so it will include minneapolis st. paul region. that is also including the
2:26 am
extreme western sections of wisconsin as well with large hail and isolated tornado on monday for this region. looking a little bit closer, you can see the high resolution computer models really showing the thunderstorms popping up by about lunchtime and into the evening hours and look out, oklahoma city and dallas into wichita, further north, you can see how they pick up in intensity. on top of that, we have heavy rainfall that could lead to localized flash flooding and remember, this particular area had a lot of rain this spring. the other side of the world, another region that had a significant amount of flooding. cyclone in parts of india. almost 20 inches of rain leaving scenes like this. you could actually see the cyclone and the damage, unfortunately, that took place here.
2:27 am
bangladesh and myanmar are so vulnerable. not a lot of topography to help block the storms. 5:26. we continue with coverage on the egyptair flight investigation to paris with the latest on what french officials are finding out. broadcasting live in the united states and around the world, this hour, you're watching cnn newsroom. hmmmmmm.....

(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 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. 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.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world, you are
2:31 am
watching cnn newsroom. it is good to have you with us. i'm george howell with the headlines we're following for you this hour. u.s. officials say a drone strike has likely killed taliban leader mullah mansour. president obama authorized the attack near the afghanistan border. isis claiming responsibility for a suicide attack in iraq. security officials say a suicide bomber blew himself up north of baghdad. nine people killed and 22 others wounded. in bangladesh, people are in shelters following a cyclone there that slammed the coastal areas on saturday killing more than 20 people. the storm uprooted trees, damaged homes, and caused landslides. egyptair said it is still too early to know what brought down
2:32 am
flight 804. they stressed that smoke alerts on board aren't enough to paint the full picture of what happened on the plane. the egyptian military shared what little debris they have so far and they still search for the plane's all important data recorders. our max foster is live at charles de gaulle airport in paris following this information. max, good to have you with us as well. french officials are taking part in this investigation. what more are we hearing from them? >> reporter: we're hearing very little and that's the news vacuum that's frustrating families here. french families of the passengers. not much since the signals release to the media and then the french officials confirmed them. that's another here that they had to go and didn't hear it from the media. french officials hands are somewhat tied because this investigation is led by egypt and the french investigators,
2:33 am
for example, aviation is just assisting in that broader investigation having to wait for this information and egyptian investigator saying this preliminary findings won't be released formally for some time and that's a great frustration and yet a lot of pressure on the airport to really justify security measures so they've invited local media in to show they're doing as much as they can in terms of screening, extra intelligence officials are being brought in but that wasn't in response to the downing of the aircraft because still, those just missing passengers officially, we haven't had french victims yet but to justify the levels of security here which are very high after a series of incidents across europe and every time a lot have
2:34 am
lost the security passes because of the radicalization but no evidence of the system and don't know what brought down the aircraft. it could be a small technical to a bomb. >> good you point that very important point out. this is not in response this is not in the downing to the plane but the precaution taken after what happened in paris and brussels. talk to us about just a little more what they're doing to make sure they know who the people are, what the backgrounds are to the people who have access to these planes. >> reporter: well, there were 86,000 people have the security passes and many private contractors as well and they've been asked about the whole screening process but physical screening applies to staff as much as it does to passengers but the broader concern is
2:35 am
obviously always the concern in security measures is not just the screening but the human link here and who has access and what their motivations might be. it's the idea of bringing intelligence officials very much base on what are the motivations of passengers and staff here at the airport. and they have shown that they are taking away security passes of people they think not just to radicalize or open to radicalization as well but the messaging they're doing all they can in terms of security in case it doesn't turn out this was terror-related. >> cnn's max foster following the investigation live at charles de gaulle airport in france. thank you for your reporting there in paris. officials say just before the plane dropped off the radar, a series of alerts indicated a number of problems on board. earlier, our jonathan man asked what this data means.
2:36 am
>> this data, it is legitimate. from what i can see, it is valid information and i need to take a look at it. this tells me that the first warning that came out was about the sliding window and the sliding window anti-ice is what had failed. right after that, the same window has another failure which would indicate a crash or it came loose. the third thing that happens is the window behind it actually starts to fail and then the lavatory which is behind that shows signs of smoke. following that is the electronics. so those are co-located. here's what gets strange. the spoilers start to fail. they're way out on the wing in the back but what i expect is that the controller for those spoilers is also in the same area of the windows and the circuit breakers.
2:37 am
it would make sense and indicates to me there may have been something that initiated with the failure of the window on the right-hand side. >> almost like an attack on the neurological system. a good enough whack in the head, have trouble moving your fingers and toes. any example of this? >> there's been a couple of others. not an accident investigation but looking at the failures of the aircraft itself, the glass windows are plastic windows that have a glass layer of them but they have inside a heater to defog the window. there's a lot of current going through the windows. i've seen them fail and cause a crack because they delaminate. that's a problem that's occurred in the past as well with other aircraft. >> could that cascade into the kind of catastrophe that 804 had? >> that would be strange if it was. i experienced this myself when flying, it was a boeing aircraft, but a similar design
2:38 am
in the window where the window cracked during the flight. they're laminated, so they're designed to take this kind of thing and you could hit them very hard with a large object at high speed and it still wouldn't rupture the window. it's difficult to say something like that would occur and cause a catastrophic failure. it seems like something else was going on as well. >> david soucie speaking with our jonathan mann. officials hope the black boxes will piece things together when they are found. many experts think that flight 804 may have been tampered with prior to takeoff but that hasn't led to any clear idea of who might have done it, if that is indeed the case at all. our tom foreman shows us how long a list of possible suspects could get. >> reporter: at the time this plane went down, there should have been two people in the cockpit, five in the cabin,
2:39 am
security people and 56 passen r passenge passengers. they all have to be looked at by investigators but let's sweep this back to the gate at charles de gaulle before it took off and look at this area right around it. who had access to this plane? first, there were people on the ground who were doing basic maintenance and care of the ground maintenance crews to chock the wheels and there were luggage handlers, put bags on n and off and caterers to put food and beverage on board and gate crews to check tickets and where people were seated. all in all, easily, 35 people who had access to the plane, direct access, on the ground. if you expand it just a little bit, let's say include the plane next to it or the plane over here in those areas where you have people who walk over or just a hundred steps or maybe less, this number jumps up. you could easily triple it to a
2:40 am
hundred people and if you go to the whole airport and everybody who has some sort of security badge here that gets them into a secure place, then it goes wild. this number jumps to 86,000 people who have some sort of access at that airport. so we started wondering, what about here in the united states? how many people have a badge that lets them go into some sort of secure zone in one of our airports somewhere coast to coast? turns out last year, homeland security gave us a number. 3.7 million people. that's a lot to keep track of. >> cnn's tom foreman explaining. the iraqi military is warning residents of fallujah to leave areas and head towards safe corridors, end quote. a precursor to a military operation to retake the anbar province city from isis and iraqi spokesman said final plans
2:41 am

(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 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. 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.
