♪ afghanistan's president declares a national day of mourning after isis claims responsible. >> for one of kabul's deadliest attacks in months. munich pays homage to the victims of friday's shooting while they try to figure out why the gunman carried it out. plus -- >> join me in welcoming the next vice president. >> hillary clinton unveils her running mate, and senator tim kaine is already going on the offensive against donald trump. hello, i'm ivan watson, and this is "cnn newsroom."
1:01 am
dozens of people are dead after one of the bloodiest attacks in months hit afghanistan's capital city. two fight others blew themselve in kabul. at least 80 killed and 260 others wounded. here's video from the moment of the explosion. now, for the latest, i'm joined on the phone by a journalist in kabul. first of all, my condolences on this mothhorrific attack. what are you hearing from people in kabul right now? i was there about a month ago
1:02 am
and was struck about by how low the morale seems to be. do people there have faith that the security forces can protect the civilian population from horrific attacks like this? >> caller: this is another the add to the morale of the people to where recently, we have had devastating attacks in kabul and throughout the country by military groups like isis and others who are carrying attacks on daily basis in afghanistan. particularly, they have focussed on kabul. >> and of course this is the latest in a series of attacks. but this one has been claimed by isis, which is not one of the bigger players in the afghanistan. how is the government reacting to this is this and also, how is the taliban reacting? is isis an ally of the taliban or a rival? >> caller: well, ideologically,
1:03 am
looking at, they have the same mentality and the same ideology of overthrowing the afghan government and bringing chaos to the say the. but, they have been in skirmishes and war between each other between taliban and isis in eastern afghanistan. and this is the first kind of attack, sophisticated attack by isis on soft targets on minority groups in kabul. >> and can you tell me how members of the ha-zahrah whun community are reacting? and is the government trying to accept a send any messages to reassure members of this long-persecuted community? >> caller: yes, the afghan
1:04 am
government has reacted angrily. and they knew isis was planning to infiltrate kabul to attack and do attacks. so of course they knew. and before this protest happened, the afghan government warned the community who were planning this protest about a possible attack. but it still went through. and sadly, a lot of people were killed in yesterday's attack. >> and it's worth, again, noting that this was a peaceful demonstration, a peaceful political protest that was so viciously targeted. thank you for speaking with me. now this bombing is the latest in a string of isis attacks or inspired attacks since april of last year. in aim lapril of last year, a b
1:05 am
blew himself up in jalaw bad. in the same city, fighters attacked a consulate in january of this year. six people were killed as well as the assailant. and just last month, 16 people were killed on a bus in kabul. isis claimed responsibility, but so did the afghan taliban. micha micha micha michael weiss spoke about isis's global aspirations. >> the taliban is now seen as the somewhat softer fundamentalist organization in afghanistan. this is why the russians and iranians are trying to work with them to rebuff isis's advances in that country. isis is billing itself globally,
1:06 am
not just against the taliban but al qaeda and others as the vanguard movement, the only one that has a nation state to its name, able to take up whatever weapons at their disposal to kill infidels. so they're spreading their provinces around the world. afghanistan, libya, the sinai peninsula, now into indonesia and the philippines and bangladesh as we saw last week. so the question, though, is will they actually make significant inroads into afghanistan. i don't think they have the capacity there to do what they've done in syria and iraq, which is to take and hold terrain. but this kind of attack is exactly what they're resorting to internationally. discombobulating assaults. isis is perhaps above all other
1:07 am
jihadist organizations genocidal when it comes to be being committed to their extermination of the shia. they don't believe they are muslim. this goes back to their founder, zawahiri. this is par for the course for isis. and this happens every day in the middle east. in the west, we focus on attacks that affect westerns, but now you've seen people blown up at a protest rally asking for electricity. the united nations, the u.k. and the u.s. have all condemned the attack. now let's move to europe and the aftermath of a very different attack. in munich, germany, police have raided the apartment in connection with a shooting rampage that left nine people dead. neighbors say ali of sungbali
1:08 am
was the gunman. they found documents on rampage killings among his belongings. our will ripley is live from munich with more on this. is it far too early to call mr. sungbali an attacker? given that this took place on the anniversary of those awful attacks in norway? >> reporter: well, the similarities are impossible to ignore. 77 people died in the norway attack. the majority of them were children or young adolescents, similar to on a far smaller
1:09 am
scale in munich. of the nine of them, seven were teenagers. it seemed that ali sungbali was aiming for them. he was probably receiving psychological treatment, possibly for depression. there was no indication, perhaps in that book "why students kill." the sandy hook killer kept a diary trying to diagnose what was going on in his mind. his parents are still being spoken to by the police here in munich. they were detained and questioned after a really horrifying time for them as well, just overtaken with grief. in addition to all the families who were out here. and it goes to show that even though everybody's mind first
1:10 am
jumped to jihadist terrorism it wasn't the case here. the case was somebody motivated differently. families have lost children, people have lost those whom they love. and there are more than two dozen recovering from in some cases very serious injury. >> will, it's very important to bring that up. because you coming very fresh from the horrific july 14th attacks in the french city of nice, a very different method of killing, at least more than 80 people, with different political motives, apparently, that being linked somewhat to isis, but i wonder, are you seeing any similarities in the reactions among the bereaved there? what kind of questions are people asking after both the nice attack in france, and now this horrific attack, apparently by a very disturbed teenager in munich? >> reporter: a lot of the same
1:11 am
emotions. grief, shock, anger. of course people were looking for a scapegoat here in germany right away, thinking it might have been somehow a refugee who committed this crime because there was an attack on a train in the state of bavaria. so police were quick to come out and say this was not by refugees. the majority of the migrants, families with children trying to escape the kind of violence that has broken out over europe. you can see the people standing around a spontaneous memorial. and we saw this in nice as well, flowers and candles and teddy bears, marking the promenade des anglais. and now we have flowers and candles where people were shot down after coming to this mcdonald's restaurant. the attacker may have posted an ad on facebook to get more young people to go there in search of
1:12 am
free food. and the thing that keeps coming to my mind is that there are tomb of these spontaneous memorials. too much of this happening. and people in europe feel the same and they don't know what the solution is. how do you prevent somebody who may be a lone wolf from doing this when they give almost no indication to those close to them that this is what they're planning. >> it's so sad, will, that we see these similar scenes of flowers, candles, heart-felt signs cropping up on sidewalks in cities and towns all across the world after these senseless acts of violence. and our thoughts go out to these families. now the german chancellor describes the attack in munich as a night of horrors. angela merkle says she shares the pain of the families of those who will never see their loved ones again. our frederik pleitgen has more
1:13 am
from munich. >> reporter: mourning the dead. many clearly overwhelmed by pain, sadness and anger at the makeshift memorial near the scene of the killings. >> i'm so glad that no one of my friends affected, and they are all alive and safe. but i'm so sorry for the people who, who were here at the moment. >> i'm scattered in pieces. i don't know. i haven't foreseen that like happening in your own, in your own neighborhood, you know? >> pray for munich. pray for the world. >> reporter: the shooter, identified by cnn as 18-year-old ali sungbali killed nine and wounded more than two dozen when he opened fire here on friday afternoon. police are trying to of determine what motivated him, but there in are strong indications he may have been
1:14 am
targeting younger people. so far none of those killed or wounded have been publicly identified. >> we have all the equipment you need for management. >> reporter: at munich's biggest hospital, peter beebentaller remember all too well the mass casualty situation they were confronted with, treating several wounded but unable to save one of those rushed here. >> it makes me so sad, because i want to fight for every life, and especially in young victims. this is, this is not a good thing for a physician. >> reporter: the aftermath of this crime weighing heavily on munich and germany. as this community struggles to understand what may have motivated the man who took their lives. fred pleitgen, the cnn, munich germany. now america's political spotlight shifts to the democrats, as they head to their

1:19 am
ivan watson, live in hong kong. hillary clinton and her running mate are campaigning together ahead of next week's convention. tim kaine is bilingual and spoke in span eaish at times to the crowd. donald trump has angered latinos with his talk of building a wall. >> from atlantic city to his so-called university, he leaves a trail of broken promises and wrecked lives wherever he goes.
1:20 am
we can't afford to let him do the same thing to our country. and folks, we don't have to, because hillary clinton is the direct opposite of donald trump. >> donald trump tweeted a sharp response, quote, just saw crooked hillary and tim kaine together. isis and our other enemies are drooling. they don't look presidential to me. now the mother of the u.s. ambassador killed four years ago in benghazi, libya wants donald trump and the republican party to stop using his name in the election campaign. j. christopher stevens was one of those murdered in the attack. some allege that clinton and the obama administration were responsible. but the ambassador's mother has written to the "new york times" saying quote, i know for certain
1:21 am
that chris would not want his name or memory used in that connection. i hope there will be an immediate and permanent stop to this opportunistic and cynical use by the campaign. the democrats have a new problem as they get set to celebrate their ticket. wikileaks. chris freight looks at why they're creating such a stink within the party. >> reporter: bernie sanders and his top aides have complained for months that the dnc and debbie wasserman shumts are putting their hands on the scale for hillary clinton. days after sanders won west virginia. wasserman schultz says jeff weaver thinks sanders should take his fight all the way to the convention floor, and she responds that weaver, kwoelts, is an ass.
1:22 am
that same aide tells wasserman schultz that in an interview, they were asked about violent behavior by sanders supporters. she replies, damn liar, particularly scummy that he barely acknowledges the violent and threatening behavior that occurred. it is worth noting that cnn has not verified the e-mails' authenticity. they could threat and truce between sanders and clinton, and at that includes a more progressive party platform in exchange for sanders dropping his fight aing a replacement fo the wasserman schultz chair. and for clinton and other democrats who were hoping to unite the party in philadelphia this week, these e-mails are really bad news.
1:23 am
chris frates, cnn, washington. democratic national secretary of state stephanie rawlings-blake is denying any idea that hillary clinton received preferable treatment. wasserman schultz no longer plans to speak to the convention. let's move to los angeles, california. the body of a man has been found near an expanding wildfire. the so-called sand fire near santa clarita is 8,000 hectares. hundreds of people have been evacuated. and people in 1500 more homes have been told to get to safer ground. and the weather forecast will continue to make it challenging for firefighters in the week
1:24 am
ahead. meteorologist care meteorologist karen maginnis is in the weather center. >> it has really been quite the challenge, and yes, the weather is the big problem across this region. they have been in extreme or extraordinary drought conditions now for quite some time, and it looks like little if any change is expected as temperatures soar into the low triple digits or over 35 degrees plus celsius. the terrain causes this fire to jump from one hilltop or canyon to another. also, it's encroaching across some populated areas. so they've had to call for mandatory evacuations. just a day and a half ago, this was just a minor brush fire. but now, just about 10% contained. there are some estimates that perhaps firefighters in some areas are able if to get ahold
1:25 am
of this, but here you can see as we go into the next 48 hours or so, still offshore flow with the searingly hot weather situations making it extraordinarily hot. let's show you pictures coming out of this region 60 kilometers to the north of downtown los angeles. very spectacular picturing there, as this occurs across a canyon region. there have been several structures that have been affected. about 1500 structures. are threatened right now. there have been mandatory evacuations. they say there are about 1,000 personnel, firefighters and coordinators trying to battle this blaze, which, as i mentioned was just a quarter acre fire about a day and a half ago. now across the hawaiian islands, this has been tropical storm darby. take a look at these waves crashing along the shore there. estimates are that portions of
1:26 am
the hawaiian islands could see as much as a half meter of precipitation over the next day or so. and tropical storm darby now supporting winds of about 40 miles per hour. and it's moving towards the west and towards the northwest, but in its wake we could see power outages, mud or landslides, and it looks as we go into the next day or so, this will gradually move into open waters, start to weaken because of the shear factor, also because we have much colder water temperatures. >> incredible that that wildfire was just a quarter acre in size a short time rago and it's now o huge. now turkey's president is stepping up his attacks against a cleric owe he accuses of a

failed coup. and russia will find out soon if it's banned from the 2016 olympic games. the latest doping scandal clouding the country's olympic dreams coming up.
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
welcome back to our viewers in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm ivan watson, coming to you live from hong kong, the headlines this hour. isis is claiming responsibility for a suicide attack on a peaceful protest in kabul, afghanistan. the country's president is declaring sunday a national day of mourning for the 80 people
1:31 am
killed. the twin blasts wounded 260 others. a security firm says a third attacker was killed by police. neighbors say the apartment that munich police raided after a deadly shooting friday belonged to ali sonboly, a 18-year-old. he had no connection to isis but had researched shootings extensively. hillary clinton's running mate is hitting the road at her side. tim kaine spoke at a rally in miami. kaine said republican nominee donald trump leaves a trail of broken promises and wrecked lives wherever he goes. turkish authorities have arrested a top aide of this cleric. turkey's president accuses fethullah gulen of last week's failed coup and is requesting
1:32 am
the u.s. to extradite him. his aide entered turkey two days before the coup attempt and was arrested in the country's north. later sunday, turkey's main secular opposition party is expected to hold a pro-democracy rally in istanbul. that will test the commitment of the turkish government to freedom of expression and political unity. our ian lee joins us live from istanbul. good to see you, ian. it's interesting now. for a week now supporters of erdogan have been out in the streets of cities and towns all across turkey. i know very well from personal experience, if any group dares to criticize erdogan and goes to that square that you're in front of, within minutes, police are likely to intervene with water cannons, tear gas and pepper spray. will this rally be authorized and tolerated by the police?
1:33 am
>> reporter: well, you know, this is some strange times here in turkey, ivan. you do have the chp, the main opposition group, calling for the rally today, but in the leadup to it, the ak party, erdogan's party, the main political party asked if they could join and chp agreed. so they're holding a joifts rally there, and it really does make for some strange bedfellows, as you pointed out. these two sides don't see eye to eye, rarely sigh eye ee eye to . turkish politics can be quite divisive and deadly. you rarely see this unity among the political parties as all of the opposition group has come out and said we are against the coup. we are for democracy, and you are seeing this unity in the aftermath, but there are these cracks that are starting to form in the unity with really the state of emergency, chp as well
1:34 am
as the pro-kurdish hd party have said that they do not support this state of emergency, that they see this as a crackdown on freedoms as well. the head of the hd party yesterday said there's really not much of a difference between a military coup and state of emergency, both limit freedoms. although erdogan and the ak party have said that this state of emergency is about seeking out those who tried to have a coup and not against personal freedoms of the people here in turkey. >> so ian, i have another logistical question. we've heard about the tens of thousands of people be being arrested. people from all ranks, the police, the military, the judiciary, even many teachers and more than a dozen universities that will be closed down. how will the state bureaucracy function in the days and weeks ahead with so many pulled out of positions of responsibility,
1:35 am
particularly in the security forces when you also have very recent threats carried out by isis and by the kurdistan workers party? >> reporter: well, that's right. and a third of the admirals and generals of the turkish military have been arrested, and large chunks of that security establishment, as you said has been moved aside, and that is going to be the main task and challenge for the turkish government moving ahead, because, as you said, they have faced terrorism threats not only from isis but the pkk, the kurdish separatists, so it has been a very volatile time here in turkey before this coup attempt, and now, with this purge that we are seeing, it's going to make it a lot more difficult, although we are hearing from the government saying that this won't affect security here, and they're trying to make up for it in other ways possible, going to the teachers and the educational institutes it that have been
1:36 am
shut down, erdogan and the government have said that they are looking for it 20,000 new teachers to fill these positions. so while they are taking from one area, they're trying to backfill that, get new people in, but this is posing a serious challenge, not just for how the state functions but really the security of the state, when you do have such a volatile southeastern region as well as bordering iraq and syria with isis just next door. >> all right, that's ian lee live from istanbul, and he'll be covering this upcoming rather unusual show of unity teen the opposition chp party and the akp. thanks very much, ian. let's move on to brazil, where authorities are combing through the computers and phones of terror suspects. they were allegedly inspire the by isis and plotting terror attacks during next month's rio
1:37 am
olympi olympics. they were linked to growing international extremism. >> translator: it fills me with sadness and apprehension and makes everyone feel unsafe, where terrorists carry out suicide attacks. this creating great apprehension at world is seeing a new level of fanaticism that wasn't there as before. it is not because of the olympics. >> now under brazil's new antiterrorism law, the suspects can be held for 60 days without charges. the international olympic committee is set to rule on banning russia from the 2016 rio olympics. 67 russian track athletes have already been banned following allegations of state-sponsored doping. for more on the controversy, we're joined now by former cnn moscow bureau chief, jill dougherty in moscow. good to see you, jill.
1:38 am
it's incredible these developments, just two years after russia enjoyed olympic glory at the sochi olympics. how are officials reacting to this potential ban? >> reporter: this is huge for russia. it's huge for russia the country, and huge for president putin who after all was the face of the olympics in sochi. so right now i can tell you moscow really is bracing for this decision. and president putin has been taking kind of a, you know, a dual approach. he has definitely denied that there is any state-sponsored doping in russia. but on the other hand, he's been saying, look, we're taking this very seriously, it is a big problem in the world. and if there's any going on in russia, we're going to do something about it. so right at this point you have five officials who are temporarily sidelined, as this is being investigated.
1:39 am
and then also president putin urging the russian olympic committee, which it did, to create an independent commission. we'll look into doping. that's on, you know, the higher level. the level of the people is that people, many of them, feel that this is once again the united states, perhaps the west, weak europeans, trying to make things difficult for russia, trying to destroy its reputation, destroy its president and damage the credibility of russia. so even though there may be some concern that yes, there is doping, it's kind of like, well, it may be happening, but doesn't everybody do it, and by the way, we are under attack from the united states. so i think that's the way it shakes up. but if will be very, a really difficult decision for the athletes who may not be able to go to rio, depending on this decision, the entire team, i mean. >> and we know you'll be
1:40 am
following it closely. thanks very much, that's jill dougherty live from moscow. now take a look at russia's medal hall. they won a total of 33 medals in sochi, including 13 gold. they fared much better in london. russian athletes won 15 medals in vancouver. beijing in 2008 was a much bigger success, with russia taking home 73 medals overall, including 23 golds. now russia's doping woes aren't the only concern dogging the rio olympics. with brazil in recession, athletes can expect sparse accommodations. organizers even considered charging for air conditioning, can you believe it? but there are some amenities athletes won't find anywhere else as shasta darlington shows
1:41 am
us from rio's olympic village. >> reporter: 31 17-story towers. >> this is surrounded by the bedrooms and bathrooms. minimal amount of seating. >> reporter: getting a tour of the athletes' village from the man who's been providing olympic furniture for them since sydney 2000. 3,604 apartments. 18,500 beds, disposable wardrobes. with brazil in recession and the olympic budget tight, these rooms being called basic, even austere. definitely cold. there's the discussion about whether or not there'd be air conditioning. they didn't want to pay for it, but with the zika scare they had to put it in. >> air conditioning in all the bedrooms, fans in non-bedrooms but no televisions. >> reporter: in the bathrooms, shared mirrors and 13,000 toilet
1:42 am
seats. but no drawers for the 33 condoms per athlete? >> no, that's going to be in the bedside tables. >> reporter: but what it lacks on the inside it makes up for on the outside. >> tennis courts, swimming pools. anything you can imagine. >> reporter: also bike lanes, a massive cafeteria and gyms. and with all this space for pool parties and barbecues, you've got to wonder, who's going to miss all those television sets? shasta darlington, cnn, rio de janeiro. >> yeah, with that skyline, you do not need tvs. now a new report is revealing clues about what might have happened to missing malaysian airlines flight 370. the evidence on the pilot's computer after this break. asis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend.

1:47 am
flight. how are families reacting to this development? >> reporter: well, that's right, ivan. it's been such a long time. and this is not a new story. we know that the initially, during that investigation that the pilot was front and center, if you like, to do with what could have happened. now what's happened since, two years later, there's been a leaked document to a new york magnificent seen that says that the flight software shows that he was noting a flight down to the area where 370 was last heard of. there is evidence to suggest at this stage, the strongest evidence so far that this could actually have been a suicide. but what the people here in
1:48 am
kuala lumpur is saying is that they're baffled. because the pilot has effectively been cleared of the investigation. there have been no personal problems ever, ever heard of to do with a partner, financial problems. there was a fairly exhaustive criminal investigation into him and the co-pilot. didn't find anything. that's what the families were told, that's what we read in official investigations. i spoke to the spokeswoman, if you like, of voice 370. this is a group who represent the families. her name is grace nathan. and, she expressed bewilderment about this new development. this is what she had to say. >> i don't know what to believe. and until there is, for example, the malaysian authorities and the investigation team in australia have said that they already dismissed that it was possibly like pilot suicide or a controlled ditching, so, or at least they've dismissed the pilot suicide portion of it. so i feel like i am back to where i always am, like in the middle of this, floating around, not knowing what to believe or
1:49 am
think. and this is all very stressful, really. >> reporter: okay, you heard ivan, a very stressful situation. the other question they're asking is if these investigations are actually new, why has it taken two years, or why has it taken so long for this to come out again. a lot of the families are saying ma they blame the malaysian authorities, who have been very reluctant to offer a lot of information about this over the past two years. there is no love lost between the families of those on board and the authorities here pause the families say they're not getting information a timely manner or enough information to actually know what's still going on, ivan. >> that's andrew stevens live from kuala lumpur. now most people do not hop on a water slide thinking

this is "cnn newsroom." in afghanistan, the president has declared sunday a national day of mourning after twin suicide bombings killed dozens of people in kabul. isis has claimed responsibility for the saturday attack. the blasts targeted a peaceful demonstration by a mostly shiite ethnic minority. an official says at least 80 people were killed and it 260 others wounded. another official says security forces killed a third attacker before he detonated his bomb. now for more on the bombings in afghanistan, our nick paton walsh joins us from beirut. isis is not the main player on the ground when it comes to militants, jihadi militants in afghanistan, that's the taliban. is this a game changer, this horrific attack in kabul when it comes to the ongoing war and
2:02 am
battle for power there? >> reporter: i think it's possibly a way in which people will realize isis have a significantly greater reach across afghanistan than previously thought. much of their activity was limited to the east of the country where they've been under attack from the afghan military, u.s. air power and drones as well in the past months. those onslaughts have pushed them out of some population centers, but they have begun to creep back. the fact they're able to launch this, their biggest, most deadly attack in the capital and in afghanistan is suggestive of a way that they can evade security in place by afghan officials. this protest was long telegraphed. there had been security measures put in place to some degree. they're very hard to stop. three people willing to give their own lives. of course this level of gruesome bloodshed, but ashraf ghani
2:03 am
calling for a day of mourning. a grim recognition that is an attack, so huge in casualties that it will live on. a city that has gotten so used to violence on a day-to-day basis but nothing on the scale of this, ivan. >> i was in kabul a couple weeks ago. i was struck by just how demoralized many afghans seemed when it came to confidence in their security forces and security in general in the afghan capital. what will the likely effect be of this horrific attack on ordinary people, who are just seeing security apparently deteriorate in kabul and other cities? >> reporter: it is a battle for confidence and sense of safety of afghans. many wonder if the afghan
2:04 am
government is winning at the moment. they have a re strong messaging campaign. but they've seen territorial losses in helmand. but that confidence is slowly eroded by things like this. many are looking at this attack as some sectarian element to the conflict in afghanistan. now isis's statements about the attack made a rechgs to how some of these shia ha-zahrahs who are predom nantsly the victims. some of them have been recruited in syria to fight alongside the syrian regime, a small number, but that was referenced in the statement as a possible motive for the attack. perhaps a bid to cast some sort of rift between the hazara and the others. it is a new tactic but possibly one isis is latching onto. the taliban's reach has been
2:05 am
significantly stronger and they have been fighting isis as well, but this kind of attack reminisce reminiscent. >> the spectre has been tearing apart lives. now michael weiss is a cnn contributor and co-author of "isis inside the army of terror". and he spoke earlier with cnn about the kabul attack and isis's global aspirations. >> the taliban is now seen as the somewhat softer islamic fundamentalist organization in afghanistan. this is the reason that the russians and iranians are even trying to work with them to rebuff isis's efforts in that country. isis is billing itself globally as the vanguard movement. the only one that has got a
2:06 am
nation state to its name, the one that is inspiring people around the world to take up whatever weapons available at their disposal to kill infidels. and, you know, they are the custodian of the sunni mosque. they are spreading around the world, the sinai peninsula and now into indonesia and the philippines and bangladesh as we saw last week. so, you know, the question, though, is will they actually make significant inroads into afghanistan. i don't think that they have the capacity there to do what they've done in syria and iraq, which is to take and hold terrain. but this kind of attack is exactly what they are resorting to now internationally. discombobulating terrorist assaults. the hazara group is shia. isis is perhaps above other organizations, genocidal, when it comes to shia. they are committed to their
2:07 am
extermination worldwide, because they do not consider the shia to be muslim. and this goes back to their founding father zawahiri who intimated osama bin laden with this hatred of the population. so this is par for the course of for isis. this happens in baghdad and now you've seen 60-plus people blown up at a protest rally asking for electricity. and these are the poorest of the poor in afghanistan. the united nations, the uk and the u.s. have all condemned the attack. i want to turn now to europe and the aftermath of a very different, very deadly act of senseless violence. police have raided an apartment, neighbors say it is ali sonboly
2:08 am
who shot people at mcdonald's and a nearby shopping mall before killing himself. people in munich are remembering the victims, most of whom were sadly teenagers. they're setting up memorials and leaving flowers for those lost. will ripley is live near one such display. the information we're getting from the raid on the apartment, as well as this audio recording when the shooting was actually taking place, what does it tell us about the gunman and his possible motives? >> it paints a picture of someone who was clearly psychologically disturbed and angry. in fact, the police have acknowledged that ali sonboly was likely receiving psychological treatment in addition to going to school full time and may have been treated for depression. the video and audio that you're referencing was taken from the fifth floor balcony of that
2:09 am
apartment building there beyond the olympia mall. as they were shouting insults back and forth, one of the things the shooter supposedly said, because of you, i was bullied for seven years, now i have to buy a weapon and shoot you all. then they started shouting back and forth. he talked about growing up in a low-income area. he used a slang word for unemployment benefits, hasn't done anything since the fifth grade. and there were shots at the people in that apartment building there. police have said going back to 2011, 2012, when this shooter would have been 13, 14 years old, he was beaten up, was the victim of theft and referenced being bullied. many people are sadly the
2:10 am
victims of bullying, but it doesn't cause them to act out in that way. perhaps there were warning signs that may have gone unnoticed, which sadly is a narrative we've seen time and time again. you and i grew up in sandy hook. police said that they found evidence in this attacker's apartment that he was doing the same. he was researching, perhaps trying to figure out what was going on inside his own mind. >> and, you know, in that video, he seems to be hurling expletives at turks, who are a large community, turkish immigrants and descendants in germany but identifying himself as a german, even though he is the son of iranian immigrants. what can we glean from that? >> reporter: it's difficult to put the pieces together as to how the perceived insults
2:11 am
towards foreigners, you know, factored into the shooting. it seemed as if the age of the victims was certainly one very important factor, given the fact that there were several 14 year olds, 15-year-olds. seven of the nine killed were teenagers. the other victim, 20, and one 45, and the attacker 18 years old before he turned the gun on himself. but did he know that some of the people he was shooting at had turkish citizen or were from kosovo. the germans say they were german nationals. >> three of the victims were turkish passport holders as well as one greek citizen. thank you very much for the update. now the german chancellor describes the attack in munich as a night of horrors.
2:12 am
frederik pleitgen is in munich with more on the victims. >> reporter: mourning the dead. many clearly overwhelmed by pain, sadness and anger at the makeshift memorial near the scene of the killings. >> i'm so glad that no one of pay friends affected and they are all alive and safe, but i'm so sorry for the people who were here at the moment. >> i'm scattered in pieces. i don't know. i haven't foreseen that happening in your own, in your own neighborhood, you know? >> pray for munich. and pray for the world. >> reporter: the shooter identified by cnn as 18-year-old as ali sonboly killed nine and wounded more than two dozen when he opened fire here on friday afternoon. police are still trying to determine what may have motivated the shooter to go on the rampage, but there are strong indications that he may have specifically been targeting younger people.
2:13 am
so far none of those killed or wounded have been publicly identified. >> we have all the equipment inside. >> reporter: at munich's biggest hospital, professor peter beeben taller and his team remember well the mass casualty situation they were confronted with. unable to save one of those rushed here. >> makes me sad. i want to fight for every life. and especially in young victims. this is, this is not a good thing for a physician. >> reporter: the aftermath of this crime weighing heavily on munich and all of germany, as this country struggles to understand what may have motivated the man who took their lives. fred pleitgen, munich, germany. 67 athletes are already
2:14 am
banned from the olympics. and now others may be facing the same fate. now why the mother of the ambassador killed in the benghazi attack has sharp words for donald trump. shouldn't it be clear- clearly... it is time to get a great deal and a reward card on this turbocharged jetta. gotta make room for the 2017 models. it is a clarence event. why is that so hard for people to understand? it seems clar to me... clear to me. ready for a test drive? whatever you want to call it, don't miss the volkswagen model year end event. hurry in for a $1,000 volkswagen reward card and 0% apr on a new 2016 jetta. banned from the olympics.
2:15 am
that's all i crave.e that's where this comes in. only nicorette gum has patented dual-coated technology for great taste. plus nicorette gum gives you intense craving relief. and that helps put my craving in its place. that's why i only choose nicorette. 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.
2:16 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 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. welcome back to cnn. i'm ivan wat schb live from hong kong.
2:17 am
let's take a look at the olympics. the international olympic committee is set to rule on banning russia from the olympics. 67 track athletes have already been banned over allegations of state-sponsored doping. we're joined by jill dougherty in moscow. good to see you, jill. how are russians reacting to this upcoming news, and how are they going to react if the entire olympic team is banned from rio? >> reporter: well, i can tell you 387 russian athletes are on pins and needles right now, awaiting this decision by the ioc wlofrnts the entire team will be banned. and, you know, in the life of an athlete, if you miss four year, if they can't go this year, four years is an eternity in an athlete's life, and they may not, might not be able to compete again. but on the other side, people look at that report from the world anti-doping agency, the
2:18 am
mclaren report and say that these allegations of state-sponsored doping by russia are so egregious that the team should be punished, they should not be allowed to go, because it was a massive doping scheme. those are the stakes, and for russia and president putin, it has a lot to do, it's a real threat to russia's image, prestige around the world and also pretsz putin's image and prestige afrnld around the world. >> is there any self-criticism going on in russia about these alarming allegations of a state-sponsored doping scheme? >> reporter: that is a good question. actually, i don't think that there has been that much. that said, president putin insists there is no state-sponsored doping program in russia. but they, but they also, i would say, admit that problems may
2:19 am
exist. that's why you have the president suggesting that the russian olympic committee create this commission to look into anti-doping, internationally based, experts from all over the world, but if you look at the media and the way they have been koving it, much of it is knocking down the mclaren report. they've had experts that i've raid saying look at this point, look at that point. it's not right, it's not right. so, if you were a russian sitting there watching the media, you'd say it's all made up, or at least, you know, maybe half of it is right, but the whole thing is basically a lie. and this is, yet, another attempt to blacken the image of russia around the world. >> clearly a deep skepticism in russia about this investigation. jill, always good to talk to you. thanks for the update there from moscow. now russia's doping woes aren't the only worry in the
2:20 am
olympics. with brazil in recession, athletes can expect sparse accommodations. they even considered charging for air conditioning, but there are some amenities athletes won't find anywhere else, as shasta darlington shows us from rio's olympic village. 31 17-storey towers. >> this is a typical apartment. this is the social space, surrounded by the bedrooms, bathrooms. minimal amount of seating. >> reporter: getting a tour of the athletes' village from the man who's been providing the furniture for them since sydney 2000. 18,500 beds, disposable wardrobes. with brazil in recession and the olympic budget tight, these rooms being called basic, even ah steer. definitely cold.
2:21 am
>> they put air conditioning in all the bedrooms. fans in non-bedrooms, but no televisions. >> reporter: in the bathrooms, shared mirrors and 13,000 toilet seats. but no drawers for the 42 condoms per athlete? >> no. i guess that will be in the bedside table. swimming pool, tennis courts. this is a five-star environment. >> reporter: also bike lanes, a massive cafeteria and gyms. and with all this space for pool parties and barbecues, you've got to wonder, who's going to miss all of those television sets? shasta darlington, cnn, rio de janeiro. let's take a look at u.s.
2:22 am
politics. hillary clinton and her vice presidential running mate are campaigning together ahead of next week's democratic convention. [ speaking in spanish ] that is virginia senator tim kaine. and he spoke in spachbish at times to the crowd in miami, florida. 17% of their voters are latino. and they are trying to rally support for november's election. >> i've spent most of my life in public service, because i believe in doing everything i can to make a positive difference in people's lives. i've been able to see how government works and how sometimes it doesn't. from just about every perspective. and i've always believed that however you serve, what matters
2:23 am
is whether you actually deliver results for people. and that's been my goal. that's been my goal in every position i've ever held. now i know for a lot of you this might be the first time you're hearing me speak. and hey, let me be honest. for many of you, this is the first time you've even heard my name. but that's okay. because i'm excited for us to get to know one another. >> now the secretary of the democratic national committee says no favoritism has been shown to clinton over her primary rival bernie sanders. she's responding after wikileaks released nearly 20,000 e-mails from committee staff members. chris frates looks at why e-mails are once again creating such a stink within the party. >> reporter: bernie sanders and his top aitds have complained for month ofs that the dnc uchbd chair woman debbie wasserman schultz is putting its finger
2:24 am
often the scale for hillary clinton. and these new e-mails add fuel to that tire. take this one from may 13th. days after sanders won west virginia. jeff weaver thinks sanders should take his fight all the way to the convention floor, and she responds that weaver, quote, is an ass. that same aide says weaver was asked about violent behavior and he criticized the nevada state party. and she says damn liar. particularly scummy that he barely acknowledges the violent and threatening behavior that occurred. the e-mails could flare tensions ahead of this week's democratic convention in philly. it could threaten the truce between sanders and clinton, that includes a more progressive
2:25 am
party platform in exchange for him dropping his fight to remove schultz as the chair. the e-mail showed the party was planning to destroy bernie sanders. and for those hoping to unite the party this week, these e-mails are really bad news. chris frates, cnn, washington. >> and sure enough, donald trump has chimed in on this bad news, writing, quote, the wikileaks e-mail released today was so bad to sanders that it will make it impossible for him to support her unless he is a fraud, exclamation point. the mother of the ambassador killed in benghazi wants trump to stop using her son's name in the election campaign against
2:26 am
clinton. j. christopher stevens was one of those killed in the attack. the ambassador's mother has written to the "new york times," saying, quote, i know for certain that chris would not have wanted his name or memory used in that connection. i hope there will be an immediate and permanent stop to this opportunistic and cynical use by the campaign. let's move on now. turkey's president is stepping up his attacks against the cleric he accuses of a failed coup. how an upcoming rally may test the president's commitment to co democracy. and near los angeles, the body of a man has been found as a wildfire is expanding. that coming up next on cnn.

2:30 am
welcome back to our viewers in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm ivan watson coming to you live from hong kong. the headlines this hour. the neighbors say the apartment raided in munich belonged to ali sonboly. the gunman had no connection to isis but had researched shooting rampages extensively. people in munich are mourning the victims, most of whom were teenagers. isis is claiming responsibility for a suicide attack on a peaceful protest in kabul, afghanistan. the country's president is declaring sunday a national day of mourning for the 80 people
2:31 am
killed. the twin blasts wounded 260 others. a security official says a third attacker was killed by police. hillary clinton's running mate is hitting the road at her side. tim kaine spoke at a rally in miami. kaine republican nominee donald trump leaves a trail of broken promises and wrecked lives wherever he goes. police in munich are investigating the man behind friday's deadly rampage. details on a troubling young man are painting a picture of who would do this. atika shubert has more. >> reporter: reports of shootings across town and multiple attackers, munich spent a night on holockdown, but by morning, german police said this was the work of one person. a 18-year-old german of iranian
2:32 am
descent, captured in this startling video. >> translator: where it comes from and other details needs to come out via the investigation as soon as we have the serial number. he probably was not legally allowed to have this weapon. >> reporter: at his home, neighbors identified the suspect as ali sonboly. police took his family in for questioning. they found no suicide note, no ties to terror networks. a book entitled "rampage in my mind, why students kill". outside, a stack of fliers his neighbors say he delivered every day. i saw him delivering flyiers every day. he's a hard-working kid, it's too shocking. >> he's a young boy. a lot of people sometimes, a lot
2:33 am
of people are mean, aggressive. and he's not aggressive. he respect everybody. >> reporter: i've talked to neighbors in the building, but one in particular went to school with him. and she didn't want to appear on camera, but what she revealed to us may be the motive. she said in school he was deeply unpopular, bullied all the time, and he was a loner. she also said that everybody made fun of him. in fact, police say he had been a victim of a violent incident in the past and that he may have been treated for a mental health issue. in this amateur individual crvi around the time of the shooting, the suspect specifically talks about being bullied. police say he used that gun to kill nine people, finally turning it on himself. but the fear and chaos he
2:34 am
unleashed has left this city and others on edge. atika shubert, cnn, munich. and from germany to turkey still reeling from a deadly attempted military coup. the government there says it has arrested a top aide of the cleric it accuses of the failed coup. and that cleric, fethullah gulen, is seen here and denies any involvement. the aide entered turkey two days before the coup attempt. and turkey is increasing the maximum amount of time they can be detained without charges from four days to a month. the government can also listen in on conversations between people detained and their lawyers. >> translator: this coup attempt was not only against the state, the government and the parliament but against turkish armed forces, turkish armed forces and our soldiers are cherished by us. on july 15th, we also rescue the
2:35 am
our forces from these thieves. with this failed coup attempt, turkey has entered a new era. >> later, their opposition party is expected to hold a pro-democracy rally in istanbul. and ian lee joins us live from istanbul. i know from personal reporting experience that the government and the police do not tolerate groups of critics coming out into that very square you're standing in front of. they very quickly respond with tear gas or water canons or pepper spray, even if it's women protesting for women's righting or a lgbt pride rally. is the government going to allow the main chp opposition party to gather that there in taksim square? >> reporter: well, ivan, these are some strange times in turkey, and so far, yes, that rally is going ahead. including in that rally are
2:36 am
going to be speakers from the ak party, erdogan's party, the main political party here. they asked to join the chp in this rally today. and they agreed to it. this is a strange bedfellows. tease are two parties usually at each other's throats. very divisive politics here, looking down at taksim square, you are seeing the police prepare for this rally today with crowd control measures, but from what it looks like, it should be going forward. we're not expecting any violence or any sort of clashes with the police, at least that's what we're not expecting. but again, yes, this is a very strange time where you do have all these opposition parties as well as the main political party coming together in unity against this coup, pro-democracy, although there are some cracks forming where you do have the chp, the main opposition party as well as the hdp, the
2:37 am
pro-kurdish party, both saying that the state of emergency is unnecessary. >> it certainly will be a remarkable to see opposition supporters and government supporters side by side in a public demonstration. let me ask a different question here. the turkish government has equated the gulen group to al qaeda and isis, actually saying it's worse than them. is anybody asking how it's possible that supporters of this cleric in pennsylvania have become so deeply entrenched as the government has alleged within so many different layers of bureaucracy in the turkish police, the judiciary, military, even educational circles, during 14 years when turkish president erdogan has essentially ruled the country? >> reporter: well, and, you know, the ironic thing about all of this, ivan, is that fethullah
2:38 am
gulen supporters got so deeply ed entrenched into the government with the help of president erdogan. it wasn't until 2013 that the two had a falling out and that erdogan started criticizing fethullah gulen and the opposite. but in those years, where they were allies, you saw gulen supporters becoming members of the judiciary, of the police forces, throughout all different sectors of society, education. and president erdogan even came out and said about his supporters, about gulen, saying that, you know, what didn't you ask for that we weren't able to give you? essentially saying that anything they asked for they were given. his supporters. and so there is a sense of betrayal here, although that goes back to 2013. also kind of the ironic part of it is when these gulen supporters were being put in
2:39 am
these positions of power, they were purging if of secularists, and now it seems like today at least you have the secularists as well as the ak party coming together in unity. but as far as gulen's movement, his supporters, in this, in the government, it's somewhat like erdogan helped make this bed, now he has to lie in it. >> wow, one time political allies in open war against each other. ian lee, you'll be covering the upcoming rally in istanbul. good talking to you. let's move on to malaysia where the search for malaysian airlines 370 will be suspended if it isn't found soon. we're also learning new details about the movements of the pilot just a mondath before the plane went missing. andrew stevens is in the capital.
2:40 am
two years since the plane went missing, and only now we're getting these details about the pilot and his compeuter? >> reporter: that's right, ivan. that's the key question. why has it taken more than two years for this information to come out? at the moment we can only say that this information has been published in a magazine in the u.s., new york magazine, and that the pilot had actually plotted on his home flight simulator, a path that took him down to the deep southern indian ocean where in fact malaysian flight 370 is believed to have flown and crashed into the water. so the fbi said that they had found some deleted programs on his flight simulator, which shows nthat the captain had actually done this, which suggests this could have been a suicide. but the people here in kuala
2:41 am
lumpur. the families of the people on board are struggling to digest this. because the captain was essentially cleared in an investigation by the malaysian police of any personal problems, any financial problems, anything that could have linked him to an altered state of mind or a political view that could have led to him taking the plane down there and knowingly crashing it into the southern indian ocean. so the people here, the families are really struggling with this. i've been speaking to a couple of the family members. grace naitsthan represents a gr who has been demanding the truth. her mother was on that flight. listen to what she had to say when she heard about this new report. >> i don't know what to believe. and until there is, for example, the malaysian authorities and the investigation team in australia have said that they already dismissed that it was possibly like pilot suicide or a controlled ditching, so, or at
2:42 am
least they dismissed the pilot suicide portion of it. so i mean i just feel like i am back to where i always am, in the middle of this floating around, not knowing what to think or believe. it's all very stressful really. >> reporter: and this is the thing. what grace says there about not knowing and being right back in the middle of it. that's something you hear here very often. and i'm sure it's the same in chc chc chchb. more than 130 chinese nationals. nobody knows what's happened. and to your question about why now, i asked that question to grace. in fact, i asked it to a couple of people down here, and they all say that the malaysian authorities have been very, very slow and very non-transparent in this whole investigation, and they feel this is just another, another sign of the lack of transparency in this whole investigation into what happened
2:43 am
to mh 370, ivan. >> it certainly has been a tortured relationship between the family members and the government. thank you for that report from kuala lumpur. now let's move on to history in the making. a plane is taking off on its final less of its journey around the world powered only by the sun. details coming after this break. (guy) oh man, the show's pretty much over.

2:46 am
welcome back to cnn, broadcasting live from hong kong. there's a view of the late
2:47 am
afternoon sun at the entrance to hong kong's victoria harbor. now a very different scene northeast of los angeles, california, where the body of a man has been found near where a wildfire is expanding. an investigation is under way. the so-called sand fire near santa clarita has grown to 20,000 acres, around 8,000 hectares. the fire is just 10% contained. hundreds of people have been evacuate the. and people in 1500 more homes have been told to get to safer ground. the weather forecast will continue to challenge firefighters, trying to get a handle on the wildfire. so meteorologist karen maginnis is at the world weather center. good news or bad news for residents and firefighters there? >> unfortunately, it looks like in the short term over the next five to seven days, it looks like the weather is going to remain unfavorable to control the fire. we're looking at low relative
2:48 am
humidity, breezy conditions and soaring temperatures. this was a fire that just a day and a half ago was just a minor brush fire. and now about 8,000 hectares or 20,000 acres and temperatures have been in the triple digits. take a look at these astounding pictures coming out of this fire to the north of los angeles by about 30 or 60 kilometers or about 30 or 35 miles. there have been structures that have burned. there are about 1,000 personnel that are on hand, battling this fire. and it looks like the weather is not going to be very conducive for that. take a look at hawaii. and some of the battering waves along the paradise park coast. we saw the winds gusting as high as 60 miles per hour. about 100 kilometers per hour. but now it's weakening rather rapidly, creating heavy surf. and we could see mudslides or
2:49 am
landslides as much as 15 minutes of rainfall is possible. >> thanks for that update, that's karen maginnis live from the weather center. now to a different story. an aircraft powered only by solar energy, and it has begun its final leg of its flight around the world.
