and unrest in the city. we want to show you live images from wisn where it is just at 1:00 a.m. in that city. you see there a car on fire. we are still trying to gather information about why, who put that car on fire. this is all within the context of a protest that has been happening in that city. a police officer has been taken to the hospital after rocks were thrown in his car windshield and more reports of shots fired in the past half hour. >> demonstrations first broke out saturday after police shot and killed an armed man during a foot chase. people set several buildings on fire and threw bricks at police. 17 people were arrested saturday night. >> earlier sunday, vigils were held for the man shot by police and in an emotional moment, his sister spoke out about what it's like to lose her big brother. >> this is my brother. my protector.
somebody else is supposed to be there for me. maybe you like it. i lost my brother. i can't get him back. never. never. that's pain. this is real hurt. i can't look my brother in the eye and my brother i love him. i don't have a facebook to tell my brother i love him. >> they want the community to voice concerns in a peaceful way. anna cabrera has more on that. >> community members gathering and remembering the 23-year-old who was shot and killed on saturday afternoon by a police officer in this neighborhood. a vigil has been set up and identified as 23-year-old smith. it all began with a traffic stop that smith and another individual were pulled over and they got out on foot. a police officer opened fire,
shooting and killing smith after police say he failed to drop a gun. there is body camera video of this confrontation with police that clearly shows he was holding a gun. the community here wants answers. they want this investigation to be transparent, but really that shooting they say was simply a tipping point in a much larger problem. a problem they felt in the community for years. the community that feels it has been oppressed for years and lacks opportunity and hope for the future. that is what triggered all that emotion that boiled over, leading to several buildings set on fire. police officers said they had rocks thrown at them and concrete that hit a woman's head and a police officer who suffered a concussion and four officers were injured. 17 people were arrested saturday night. police are asking for this community to voice their concerns, but to do it
peacefully. the national guard now has been activated on stand by should they be needed to come in and quell any additional violence that could happen here. we will stay here in milwaukee and let you know about any new developments. ana cabrera from milwaukee. >> the sheriff warned protesters not to resort to violence to make their point. we had an untenable situation in milwaukee. people have to find a more socially acceptable way to deal with the anger and resentment. this is an orderly society. we have processes and we have institutions with which to deal with the things. as frustrating as it can be, it takes a long time to work through the institutions and the processes that we have.
we cannot have the social upheaval and the chaos that we saw that frightens good law-abiding people that destroyed businesses. >> they will continue to follow the situation in milwaukee. now moving on to the u.s. state of louisiana. people in the southern part of the state are bracing for more rising water and dealing with what is considered historic flooding. 60 centimeters or two feet of rain fell since wednesday and the national weather service warns swollen rivers will continue to spill over the banks. >> the flooding killed four people and thens have been evacuated. barack obama signed an emergency declaration to speed up help for response and recovery efforts in the state. louisiana's flood devastation is far from over. in fact, we have our meteorologist is here to talk about this.
what is the outlook. >> the nature of how wurt wants to move downstream, we will notice they will move to places that saw less rainfall and seeing water levels rise if they are along the rivers that have been impacted. it's something we are watching carefully. and more rainfall is expected and you think about what the united states has bedealt with d you look at columbia and south carolina and almost $90 million. june in west virginia and 20 to more than $30 million. and of course when you look at flooding in general, and you see that in the united states come from flooding. even accumulates more so than thunderstorms, lightning and tornados as well. here's the storm system that
parked in place over the past several days. a lot of tropical characteristics and the only thing that kept it from becoming a storm is it moved over the rainfall that we saw and almost 20 inches came down. it's a monthly average and 12 inches was the all time record for one day prior to getting the rainfall we saw in recent days. look at this light up. the top of the charts, the widespread area with over 20 inches with 500 millimeters of rainfall. some of the areas, the highest amounts we came across at 34 inches of rainfall. that is comparable to what seattle sees in a year. they saw that in years in louisiana. they show the thunderstorms are still there and the vast majority schihifts towards the west. 100% plus of normal. the soil is fully saturated. any water that comes down will increase the water table and lead to flash flooding where the
water just has nowhere to any. it will be a rough go for a lot of people here. >> when you hear the story over and over, the out come is the same. >> absolutely. it's unfortunate. >> crews in northern california are struggling to put out a fast moving fire. the clayton fire has grown to 3,000 acres. >> they damaged 100 buildings and forced evacuations. strong winds and dry conditions are fueling the fire. >> aiming for the gold, great olympians are proving why they are the best of the best.
jamaican sprinter usain bolt won the 100 meter dash for the third straight time, the first athlete to do that and he is aiming for the 200 and the four by 100 relay. >> see if the lightning bolt can do it. simone biles won her third gold medal in rio and put on a dominating performance on the vault and could leave rio with five golds if she wins the upcoming beam and floor competitions as well. >> for has been another exciting day in rio. >> christina has been tracking all the action on the ground there and joins us now live. christina, let's start with the highlights including that incredible achievement of the fastest man on earth and whether usain bolt can repeat the golds in upcoming events. >> that's right. the odyssey continues tonight. we were witness to one of the greatest races we are going to
see in this olympic games. it was a race that for usain bolt was not the fastest he posted in olympic 100 meters. it was 9.81 seconds. that is the slowest time he took olympic gold. in london he posted 9.63 and 9.69 in beijing. not the fastest, but it's the gold medal that matters. one out of three. he is going for the unprecedented triple triple. what we saw on the track was usain bolt behind the field that started that 100 meters and with about 60 meters to go, he kicked in the long striding gait he has out ahead of his rival. could justin gatlin get usain bolt? no, he finished in the silver medal position. between the two of the athletes,
it's the reception from the crowd in that arena. when justin gatlin came out, he was met by boos. he is a controversial figure in the games with his doping past. when usain bolt came out, it was all cheers. chief among them with a jamaican crowd. several thousand of them were in the stadium. afterwards he tweeted that jamaica stand up. this one was for you, my people. i'm pleased to say my colleague was in the stadium watching it happen and he has this report. >> it's the most electrifying ten seconds in sports. and the one moment when olympic fans hold their breath. the men's 100 meter final. this year an historic occasion with usain bolt targeting a
second gold medal and he didn't disappoint. >> how does it feel to watch him run like that? >> incredible. humbling to be here and be present for this moment. it's a true honor to see him run. >> he has been a great ambassador for the sport especially with the controversy. he kept himself clean and really lifted the sport. >> he is our hero. a national icon. >> thousands were in the stadium to cheer him to victory. this was the scene that the team headquarters across town in rio. this was how they celebrated back home in jamaica known as the island of speed where he has been a national hero. >> amazing. >> his trademark swagger is showmanship and lightning bolt celebration made him the highest paid athlete ever in the history of track and field and more importantly, one of the most iconic athletes the world has
ever seen. >> i can't think of another athlete since muhammad ali who so captured the crowd. >> i will be telling my grandchildren about seeing this and it was a sensational performance. we should enjoy it while it lasts. next year he will be retiring and maybe to start a family of his. >> here told me many times he is going to start his family. >> bolt turns his attention to the 200 meters and the relay on saturday. he won all three in beijing and london and remains on course for a remarkable triple triple. >> a triple triple. that's amazing. we were talking earlier. maybe it's the name. that's the thing that makes him so fast. who knows. christina, i want to ask you about the russian athlete who was restored.
>> that's right. we just had word of this in the past hour. the russian athlete in question is a long jumper for russia and she was the only athlete cleared to compete by the athletics governing body amidst the out right ban for all of russian track and field athletes. she trains in the united states and therefore they deemed she was not part of the state-sponsored doping program in russia. on saturday based on new information that they received, they decided to pull her from the competition after what they said was samples subject to tampering and manipulation. it was a final humiliation from russia that the only athlete is not able to compete. we heard from the court of arbitration for sporters who she appealed to to say they will support her appeal and she can
compete here in rio. we have seen her warming up on the track and field down at the track on sunday. she is due now to compete in the qualifying event for the women's long jump which is due to take place on tuesday. i tell you, it's just another battle for these russian athletes who had a torid olympic games. we did speak to her agent. he will be having the statement. >> incredible development there and in rio, it is 33:15 in the morning. we will talk to you around 4:15 if you check in with us. thanks so much. let's talk the medal table. the u.s. pulling away at the top of the list, but things are a little tighter lower down. britain took over second place on sunday just ahead of china.
>> russia reentered the top five and have nine gold medals and rounding out the group is german we eight gold medals. >> coming up, nearly a week after declaring president obama and hillary clinton the founders of isis, donald trump talks about how he would defeat the organization. >> new hope for the rescue of kidnapped school girls. details ahead as cnn newsroom continues.
back to our top story. protesters have heated up with multiple arrests being reported. authorities were brought in to take control of a gathering crowd when shots were fired and objects thrown at police. one person was shot and taken to the hospital and another police officer was taken to the hospital after a rock went through his windshield. demonstrations broke out after police shot and kill an armed
man during a foot chase. people set buildings on fire and threw bricks at police. 17 people were arrested saturday. >> as early as monday, members of congress could see fbi notes taken during the bureau's interview with hillary clinton. the democratic presidential nominee was not under oath, but did spend more than three hours with the fbi answering questions about her use of private e-mail servers while she was secretary of state. several lawmakers have requested the information. republican presidential nominee donald trump is lashing out at the media again over the weekend and called the media corrupt, disgusting and dishonest and said he would be leading in the polls if it were not for journalists.
>> i'm not running against crooked hillary. i'm running against the crooked media. >> let's take a look at his latest tweets. he said if the disgusting and corrupt media covered me hone honestly, i would be beating hillary by 20%. he also tweeted this. it is not freedom of the press when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want, even if it's completely false. the "wall street journal" is calling on the republican party to give up on donald trump if he doesn't change his act by labor day. in an editorial published on sunday, they said trump needs to and i'm quoting, stop blaming everything else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be president or turn the nomination over to mike
pence. the trump campaign has not responded after the request for comment on this editorial. while trump's battle rages on, his running mate is using the media to defend the candidate's remarks about isis. he stirred up controversy by declaring president obama and hillary clinton the founders of the terror organization. take a listen. >> you and he spend a day defending his remarks saying they were serious and now trump said he was being sarcastic. so which is it? >> i think he was being very serious and making a point that needs to be made. there is no question that the failed policies of president barack obama and secretary of state hillary clinton in the wider middle east created a vacuum within iraq and in which isis was able to arise. >> why was he saying he was
sarcastic? >> he was making a serious point. >> then why did he say he was being sarcastic. >> he has a way of talking that gets attention. >> as pence defends his running mate, donald trump is focussing on a speech he will give about defeating the terror group. he is expected to outline proposals from banning people where the u.s. can't adequately vet visa applicants and propose abandoning any ambitions for nation building. all the spread of democracy in the middle east. randi kay has more. >> donald trump likes to talk about isis. >> we're will defeat isis. >> we have to knockout isis. >> the most recent comments included this suggestion linking both president barack obama and hillary clinton to the birth of
isis. >> isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. he is the founder of isis. okay? he is the founder. he founded isis. and i would say the cofounder would be crooked hillary clinton. >> whether or not he believes obama and clinton are the cofounders, he seems confident he is the expert. >> i know more about isis than the generals do. believe me. >> if that's true, why would he have said this. >> we don't know who the leader is. >> he suggested several different ways he would handle the terror group, warning isis their says are numbered. >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them.
i would just bomb those suckers. >> then another idea. he told 60 minutes he would let russia do away with isis. >> russia wants to get rid of isis. maybe let russia do it. what the hell do we care? >> what about the oil fields isis took control of. >> i would bomb the hell out of those fields. you won't need troops by the time i got finished. >> this time he said he would send tens of thousands of troops to the middle east. >> i would listen to the generals, but hearing numbers of 20 to 30,000. knock them out fast. >> he took heat saying he would target isis members. >> the other thing with the terrorists. you have to take out the families. you have to take out their families. >> thing trump made clear is if
he is in the white house, isis will be destroyed. >> they will going to be gone. isis will be gone if i'm elected president. they will be gone quickly. very, very quickly. >> he just won't say how he will do it. this is what he said before he announced his run. >> i would know how to bring isis to the table or defeat isis quickly and i'm not going to tell you what it is. all i can tell you is it is a foolproof way of winning. >> winning, something donald trump prides himself on. all he needs is a solid plan. cnn, new york. >> we will take a shored break. kurdish forces made new gains against isis in northern iraq. what this means for a mosul offensive. plus a new video surfaces
showing dozens of kidnapped school girls demanding action. back in a moment. jack be nimble, jack be quick, jack knocked over a candlestick onto the shag carpeting... ...and his pants ignited into flames, causing him to stop, drop and roll. luckily jack recently had geico help him with renters insurance. because all his belongings went up in flames. jack got full replacement and now has new pants he ordered from banana republic. visit geico.com and see how affordable renters insurance can be. ...one hair color wants to to help you keep on being you.. nice'n easy. we only make the most real natural looking color. so even in revealing sunlight, it doesn't look like hair color at all. it looks like, it's a hundred percent you. and isn't that the most beautiful part?
a warm welcome back to everyone. you are watching cnn newsroom. >> i'm george howell with the headlines we are following and monitoring the situation in milwaukee, wisconsin. our affiliate you see police there on the ground in place to monitor the crowds and protest broke out for a second night in a row. milwaukee police were dealing with the area and met with shots fired and objects being thrown. demonstrations first began saturday after police shot and killed an armed man in a foot chase. >> more water from rising
rain-swollen rivers in southern louisiana where people are struggling with historic flooding. u.s. president barack obama signed a declaration to get aid to the hardest hit areas and it killed at least five people and thousands more have been forced to leave their homes. >> the russian long jumper has appealed and will compete in rio. she will be the lone russian athlete representing her country. more than 100 athletes were banned before the games even started. >> kurtish forces launched an all out assault towards the isis-held city of mosul. the fighting is taking place south of the isis stronghold. the commander said they seized seven villages from isis and killed some 120 fighters.
>> mosul is iraq's second largest city. isis seized it more than two years ago. kurdish forces said liberating mosul is a top priority. for more on the offensive, let's go live tracking the story from neighboring jordan. just talk to us if you would about what progress has been made here. just how difficult it's going to be to take mosul back. >> rosemary, according to the commanders we spoke to this morning, so far in this fresh offensive launched on sunday, they liberated 11 villages southeast of the city of mosul. as you mentioned, 120 isis fighters were killed and at least eight fighters also killed in the battles that have been backed by the coalition. this is part of a bigger
operation that we have seen taking place over recent months with the kurdish forces moving in from the north and the east trying to take territory around the city and iraqi forces moving in from the south. they took over the air base to the southwest of mosul and expected to be a major staging ground for the operations. no one is expecting this to be an easy battle. they have seen slow and steady gains by the kurdish and iraqi forces as they face resistance by isis fighters and the concern is this is a city and a major
urban center. that could be a major concern in the city. >> of course the worry is as this anti-isis offensive is under way. the civilians fleeing dire circumstances. what do we know about that? >> absolutely. this is a major concern we are hearing from various aid organizations that are worried about a mass exodus. we have seen that in recent weeks according to the ngo mercy core. at least 70,000 people have been displaced in the battles. and last week they were warning that they expect up to 200,000 people in a matter of two weeks to be displaced. of course we are talking about people who are fleeing conflict.
they are making this really dangerous journey out. they are in need of the most basic of essentials. food and water at a time when iraq has temperatures of about 50 degrees celsius. when they reached the relative safety of the areas they get to, there is a struggle to accommodate them in the host communities that are overstretched. we are talking about a country that had 3.2 million people displaced since 2014. the expectation as we were talking about up to one million people could be displaced in the operation. >> civilians are always the ones cause in the crossfire and then having to deal with the ramifications of having to flee their homes. joining us there from georgia at 9:35 in the morning. thank you for keeping us
updated. >> now on to nigeria. three people in connection with the appearance of a new video released. in this video, it claims to show about 50 of the girls who were abducted two years ago. three people know where they are being held. >> about 200 girls are still missing. the producer is in nigeria with more on the new video. >> the new video is around 11 minutes long and in it, there is a masked manholing a rifle surrounded by what he claims are the school girls. this video has all the hallmarks of previous videos. the one obtained in april has a
similar style where the girls are sitting down and some of them are staring atthe camera and some of them look terrified. this man is making demands. interestingly, one of the girls is then asked to address the camera directly and she gives her name. i have been able to speak to the father of this girl and he told me he has seen the video and confirms that is his daughter in the video. he said he is happy to know his daughter is alive. you can say this video can be confirmed to be the skirl girls. he told me also that he recognized the other girls in the video. >> thank you so much. activists are demanding that the government take action to rescue the girls. >> a member of the group to bring them back said it is proof the girls are alive somewhere. >> nigerian citizens, stop the
nonsense. stop the grindness. we developed justice and respect. that's for 200 girls. that is proof that they are calling for exchange. they are put on top of the situation. coming up next on cnn, a possible lead in the murder of a new york imam and his assistant. plus -- >> it was making a clicking sound and flashing a bright light. i felt like we had 15 seconds before it detonated. i accepted that we were going to die. i didn't want anybody else to die with us. >> a look at one of the toughest decisions two police officers

lina taylor. they said they are a reaction to the frustration people have been feeling for years. >> there is time for us to take action and that time is now. across party, across color, across geography. because in the end it's all us. it's all us. we have to figure out what are we going to do. ask yourself, what am i doing to be the positive change to heal the hurt, the trauma that exists at depths that is beyond disg t disgusting. let's think about this. we are number one in the nation for incarceration of black men unemployment rates are off the charts. infant mortality rate. let's not talk about the lead in the water and the soil and the air quality. let's not begin to talk about the number of disparities that exist in children being taken

that police are now questioning a possible suspect. >> mourners gathered for the two men killed. they were walking home from the mosque when a gunman shot both in the head in broad daylight. we have more on the story. >> police are being careful about a motive. he did have $1,000 cash on him that was not taken after he was killed. police are saying two clean shots to the back of the head what appears to have been a resolver. this person may have had prior knowledge of a shooting experience. they are saying he knew what he was doing and precise about what he was doing and went after the two people. they are not saying at this point why that might be the case. he released a sketch today that you can see has been posted in many places right in front of the mosque where this imam and
his assistant left after saturday afternoon prayers before they were gunned down. investigators got the sketch based on witnesses and surveillance where they could see the suspect fleeing the scene this this direction back north on 79th street before and after the shooting happened. we than investigators as we have reported are pursuing leads and this news has really angered a lot of people here in the community, especially people who knew the two men. >> that was cnn reporting for us. two new york police officers are being hailed as heroes after risking their lives to protect the public. we have the remarkable story of brave bravery. >> nypd sergeant was born and raised in afghanistan came to at

>> if he was to pull off the triple-triple, how big of an achievement would that be? >> it would be extraordinary. frankly, extraordinary. the thing about usain bolt, we're very proud to have him in our sport but he's actually gone almost beyond, you know, just the confines of track and field. wearing my london hat for just a few moments, when we started bidding for the games in 2005, i spent a lot of time, 2003, spent a lot of time in schools asking to young people. i asked what sports they wanted to play. they all wanted to be roger federers and david beckham. three years later, usain bolt. i can't think of another athlete since muhammad ali that's captured it with such global affection.

and a very warm welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm george howell. we're monitoring the situation in milwaukee, wisconsin, after another night of protests and unrest in that city. a police officer has been taken to the hospital after rocks were thrown through his car windshield. authorities say they've made multiple arrests there. the national guard also has been activated and will be deployed, if necessary. >> demonstrations first broke out saturday after police shot and killed an armed man during a foot chase. people set several buildings on fire and threw bricks at police. 17 people were arrested saturday night. >> earlier on sunday, vigils were held for the man who was shot and killed by police. in an emotional moment, his sister spoke out about what it's like to lose her big brother.
>> he's my brother, my protector. somebody that's supposed to be there for me. a facebook friend, status, maybe a like at the club. i lost my brother. i can't get him back. never. never. that's pain. that's real hurt. i can't look my brother in the eye and say i love you. i didn't even have a facebook to tell my brother i love him. >> authorities say they want the community to voice their concerns but in a peaceful way. cnn's anna cabrera has more now on that. >> reporter: community members continuing to gather here in milwaukee remembering the 23-year-old who was shot and killed saturday afternoon by a police officer in this neighborhood. you see a vigil that has been set up for that individual now afd at 23-year-old sivel smith. it all began with a traffic stop that smith and another individual were pulled over. they got out on foot.
there was a pursuit, and a police officer eventually opened fire, shooting and killing smith after police say he failed to drop a gun. police say there is body camera video of this confrontation with police that clearly shows he was holding a gun. the community here wants answers. they want this investigation to be transparent. but really that shooting was simply a tipping point in a much larger problem. a systemic problem they've felt in this community for years. a community that's felt it's been oppressed for years and lacks hope and opportunity for the future. that's what triggered all that emotion that boiled over leading to several buildings set on fire late saturday night. concrete hit a woman's head. a police officer who suffered a concussion. four officers were injured. 17 people were arrested saturday night. police are asking for this community to voice their
concerns but to do it peacefully. the national guard has now been activated on standby should they be needed to come in and quell any additional violence that could happen here. we'll stay here in milwaukee and let you know about any new developments. anna cabrera, cnn, milwaukee. moving to the u.s. state of louisiana, relief won't be coming any time soon for the people struggling with historic floods in the southern part of that state. more than 60 centimeters or two feet of rain has fallen near baton rouge since wednesday. the national weather service warns more rising water is still to come as the swollen rivers continue to spill over their banks. >> flooding has killed at least five people and thousands more have been evacuated. obama has signed an emergency declaration to speed up help for response and recovery efforts in the state. during a press conference
sunday, louisiana's governor thanked people for cooperating with emergency evacuations. >> he also had this warning for anyone thinking about going into those flooded areas. want you to listen here. >> we are very thankful for the people out there who are heeding the warnings that they're being given to evacuate when that is the proper thing to do but also to not get out and sightsee. this is an ongoing event, and we still have hundreds of road closures around south louisiana. roads that have been open are now impassable. and that's the case even though the sun came out later today. that's going to be the case over the next couple of days. so i'm asking for people to remain patient and compliant, and we are going to get through this. >> our meteorologist pedra pedram javaheri. i've seen this out covering
floods where people want to go back into their homes. they think they can drive through the water and then there are those sightseers that are just too close to these dangerous floods. >> one of those things when you see people in the waters, we know wildlife is displaced. tens of thousands of wildlife are displaced. but even fire ants, when they're forced out of the ground from rising waters they bunch up and hang on to one another and create air pockets and can float down stream. sometimes hundreds of miles down stream. so if you are crossing their path in this water, whether that water is inside your property or not if they make contact with you, they'll attack. >> ouch. >> it's a dangerous place to be when they come to being out there. we'll show you what's in store here. the flood watches, they're still there. it's going to begin to wane. the watches for much of really west central texas into even parts of eastern texas with flood warnings. to the north, parts of, say, ohio into indiana, even missouri
with the flood concern because the front responsible for all the rainfall is beginning to move off to the north and east. the rainfall will be displaced off to the north and east. the heaviest rain, still seeing some of them across texas. the heaviest moved off toward the midwestern u.s. here's how much fell across parts of baton rouge. about 19 inches of rainfall. that's half a meter of rainfall. about kwud rupelin quadrupling their monthly average. it's really that expansive nature of how much rainfall came down in a large area. see the top of the charts there? the color contours in white? that's 20 inches. the cnn weather computers were not even programmed to accumulate this much rainfall in such a short time period. to at least display that. 20 inches being the top of the charts there. we know one particular location recorded 34 inches in a matter of four days. comparable to what seattle sees in an entire year. this occurring in just a few
days across this region. thunderstorms still forecast. notice parts of louisiana still get strong storms into later this afternoon and evening. that can be a major, major issue. this has been an ongoing event. the number of dollars in millions spent in assistance for all these areas. last hour you alluded to the story continually repeating itself. seven multimillion-dollar disasters related to flooding in the last ten months in the u.s. >> it is a worry, isn't it? thank you, pedram. appreciate it. ♪ it was a star-studded day in rio on day nine of the olympics. jamaican sprinter usain bolt was aiming for history, and he delivered in the 100 meters. it's his third straight gold in the event.
the first time anyone has ever done that. and he'll try and do the same thing in the 200 and 4x100 relay. >> some of the earlier action, gymnast simone biles maintained her perfect record in rio. she dominated the quality earning her third gold medal. she'll turn now to the beam where she can win a fourth gold on monday. bolt and biles are turning in some historic performances in rio. >> they certainly are. christina mcfarland has been following the story since day one and joins us now live. let's talk first about just the day's highlights. where do we start? usain bolt and also the south african sprinter who broke that world record in the 400-meter run. >> yeah, that's absolutely right. we have to start with usain bolt. one down, two to go for the unprecedented triple-triple.
it wasn't the fastest time we saw him run last night but just another gold medal notched on his belt. it was interesting. usain bolt said the reason he felt he departmeidn't put in th fastest. 9.81 seconds. that's actually 0.2 slower than he raced in london. he thought because of the turnover between the semifinal and the final. he had about an hour and 20 minutes between the semifinal and final. usually around 2 1/2 hours to readjust themselves for that final. it didn't matter because he came out ahead of the field in that 100 meters at the exact moment he needed to. that was around the 60 meter mark. he was back at the beginning. then when justin gatlin went ahead of him. that's his great u.s. team rival. usain bolt brought him back into contention and he streaked away ahead of the field. it was a race we've seen so often from usain bolt. his large frame, large stature
carrying him across the finish ln. interesting to hear the roar of the crowd as well. they were cheering usain bolt, but by contrast, they were jeering his great rival justin gatlin when he entered the stadium. gatlin that controversial doping past of his perhaps coming up to catch up with him. and people saying this wasn't just a victory for usain bolt but a victory for clean sports as well. and it was great to see the jamaican crowds in the audience -- in the arena there just rejoicing in this victory. this is a night they'll long remember. >> certainly making a clear and clean message there, right? christina, what more are we learning about that extraordinary move to order a russian athlete back into the rio games. what were the circumstances? >> that's right. we had word of this in just the
past hour from the court of arbitration for sport. the backdrop to this, the russian athlete darya klishina was the only athlete to be cleared to compete for the russian track and field team by the iaaf. that's after they blanket banned the russian athletes from competing here. she is based in the united states and, therefore, they said she wasn't part of russia's state-sponsored doping program. on saturday, based on new information they received, the iaaf decided to pull her from the competition. she then appealed to the court of arbitration for sport and in the past hour, the court have ruled in her favor. she now is going to be able to compete here in rio. we saw her warming up on the track on sunday. she begins the qualifying for the women's long jump here on tuesday. it is perhaps a small victory in what has been a torrid olympic games for these russian
athletes. just this evening, we were down at the beach volleyball match they were playing against brazil. so many boos ringing out for those russian athletes on the court. it will be interesting what she has to say about her reinstatement. >> also want to talk about this 400-meter runner. the world record was set back in 1999 but now it has been broken by this south african sprinter. tell us about that. >> that's right. it was the fastest 400 meters we have ever seen, george. and he came out and he completed four of the fastest breakdowns in the 100 meters across that 400-meter track breaking the world record. this guy has been training alongside usain bolt. and usain bolt said to him ahead of the race he thought he'd break the world record. he's actually trained by a 74-year-old great grandmother.
that has been his training partner for the best part of his whole life in fact. and we could be seeing one of the new faces in the sport emerging here as we did and almost stealing usain bolt's limelight from the track earlier this evening. >> the trainer is 74 years old. >> that's fabulous. >> thank you so much. very interesting fact there. we appreciate it. >> all right. let's talk the medal table now. the u.s. pull away at the top of the list, but things are a little tighter lower down. britain taking over second place just ahead of china, despite seven fewer medals overall. russia has re-entered the top five after a lengthy absence. they have nine gold medals now. 30 altogether. rounding out the group is germany with eight gold medals. all right. donald trump says he can defeat isis, but he hasn't said much about how he would do that. why his campaign says he's about
to reveal a plan. and the new video renews hope for the rescue of nigeria's kidnapped schoolgirls. details ahead as" cnn newsroom" continues. be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin. be the you who controls your psoriasis with stelara® just 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before starting stelara® tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have symptoms such as: fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. always tell your doctor if you have any signs of infection, have had cancer, if you develop any new skin growths or if anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems, including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition.
as early as monday, members of congress could see fbi notes taken during the bureau's interview with hillary clinton. the democratic presidential nominee was not under oath but did spend more than three hours with the fbi answering questions about her use of private e-mail servers while she was secretary of state. several republican lawmakers have requested the information. republican presidential nominee donald trump is lashing out at the media once again. over the weekend, he called the media corrupt, disgusting and dishonest and said he'd be leading in the polls if it weren't for journalists. >> i'm not running against crooked hillary clinton. i'm running against the crooked
media. that's what i'm running against. >> and here are some of trump's latest tweets. he says and i'm quoting here directly. if the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words i say, i would be beating hillary by 20%. he also tweeted this. it's not freedom of the press when newspapers and others allowed to say and write whatever they want, even if it's completely false. leading conservative newspaper is calling on the republican party to give up on donald trump if he doesn't, quote, change his act by labor day. in an editorial published sunday, "the wall street journal" said trump needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be president or turn the nomination over to mike pence. now the trump campaign has not responded yet to cnn's request for comment on this editorial.
trump's running mate is coming to his defense about some of the most controversial remarks the presidential candidate has made so far. just days ooh trump declared president obama and hillary clinton the founders of isis. >> you and he spent a day defending his remarks saying that they were serious. now trump says that he was being sarcastic. so, governor, which is it? >> well, i think he was being very serious and making a point that needs to be made that there is no question that the failed policies of president barack obama and secretary of state hillary clinton in the wider middle east created a vacuum within iraq in which isis was able to arise. there's simply no question. >> why is he saying he was sarcastic. >> he was making a very serious point. >> but forgive me, why would he say he was being sarcastic. >> he was making a serious point. trump has a way of talking that gets people's attention.
it's drawn attention to an important issue. >> trump is comparing the fight against isis to the cold war. he says he will outline his strategy for victory in a speech monday. he'll call for banning people from countries where the u.s. can't adequately vet visa applicants. and he'll say america should abandon any efforts at nation building or the spread of democracy in the middle east. our randi kaye has more. >> reporter: trump likes to talk about isis. >> the barbarians of isis. we have to get isis. we will defeat isis. we have to knock out isis. >> reporter: his most recent comments included this suggestion linking both president barack obama and hillary clinton to the birth of isis. >> isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. he's the founder of isis. he's the founder.
he founded isis. and i would say the co-founder would be crooked hillary clinton. >> reporter: whether or not he believes obama and clinton are the co-founders of isis, trump seems confident he's the expert on the group. >> i know more about isis than the generals do. believe me. >> reporter: if that's true, then why would he have said this? >> we don't really even know who the leader is. >> reporter: trump has suggested several different ways he'd handle the terror group. first warning isis their days are num wered. >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. i would just bomb those suckers. >> reporter: then another idea. he told cbs' "60 minutes" he'd let russia do away with isis. >> russia wants to get away with
isis. let them get rid of isis. >> reporter: what about the oil fields isis has taken control of. >> i would bomb the hell out of those. >> reporter: eight months later, a different plan from trump. this time he said he'd send tens of thousands of troops to the middle east. >> i'd knock the hell out of them. i'm hearing numbers of 20,000 to 30,000. we have to knock them out fast. >> reporter: he also took heat for this idea saying he'd target those related to isis members, something that's against the geneva conventions. >> the other thing is with the terrorists, you have to take out their families. when you get to these terrorists, you have to take out their families. >> reporter: one thing trump has made clear, if he's in the white house, isis will be destroyed. >> they're going to be gone. isis will be gone if i'm elected president. and they'll be gone quickly. they will be gone very, very
quickly. >> reporter: he just won't say how he'll do it. this is what he said a month before he officially announced his run for the white house. >> i do know what to do, and i would know how to bring isis to the table or beyond that defeat isis very quickly. i'm not going to tell you what it is tonight. all i can tell you, it's a fool-proof way of winning. >> reporter: winning. something donald trump prides himself on. all he seems to need is a solid plan. randi kaye, cnn, new york. to nigeria and the government is looking for three people in connection with the appearance of a new boko haram video. it claims to show about 50 of the girls abducted from chibok two years ago. they believe the three people know where the girls are being held. 276 schoolgirls were kidnapped. about 200 of them are still missing. cnn producer stephanie prusari
is there with more on what the video shows. >> reporter: this new video is around 11 minutes long. and in it, there's a masked man holding a rifle surrounded by what he claims be the missing chibok schoolgirls. this video has all the hallmarks of previous boko haram videos. certainly, you know, the one cnn obtained in april has a similar style where the girls are sitting down. some of them are staring at the camera. some of them look terrified, frankly. and this man is making demands. interestingly, one of the girls is then asked to address the camera directly and she gives her name as maida yokubu. i've been able to speak to the father of this girl. he tells me he has seen the video and confirms that is his daughter and tells me he's very happy to know that his daughter is alive. in one sense you can say this
video can be confirmed to be the chibok schoolgirls. he told me also that he recognized some of the other girls in this video. >> stephanie reporting there. coming up, kurdish forces go on the offensive against isis in iraq. why civilians could suffer the most. we will go live to the region. plus, a possible lead for investigators in the murder of a new york imam and his assistant. do stay with us. we're back in a moment.

>> i'm george howell. multiple arrests have been made and order is now being restored in milwaukee, wisconsin. this after protests broke out for a second night in a row. milwaukee police were called in to disperse the crowd some hours ago and were met with shots fired and objects thrown at officers. demonstrations first began saturday after police shot and killed an armed man in a foot chase. an historic flood has killed at least five people in southern louisiana. thousands more have been forced to leave their homes. the national weather service warns that still rising waters will produce more flooding. u.s. president barack obama has signed an emergency declaration to get to aid to the hardest hit areas. russian longjumper darya klishina has appealed her suspension and will now compete in the olympics. she'll be the lone russian track and field athlete representing
her country. they were banned from the olympics before the games even started. kurdish forces have launched an all-out assault in northern iraq as they push in toward mosul. the fighting is taking place in numerous small towns to the south of that isis stronghold. a commander says they've seized seven villages from isis and killed some 120 fighters. >> mosul is iraq's second largest city. isis has held it since june 2014. kurdis forced and the u.s.-backed military say it's a strategic priority. we want to go live to cnn who is tracking the story from neighboring jordan. can we confirm the progress and also talk to us about how difficult it will be to eventually capture mosul. >> well, the latest we are hearing from kurdish peshmerga
forces on the ground, they say this new offensive that began on sunday is ongoing right now. so far they have managed to seize 11 villages that were under isis control. these are villages southeast of the city of mosul. they say that they have faced some resistance. one commander claiming that they were facing about 21 suicide car bombs launched by isis on sunday. he says but they've managed to repel these attacks in the course of this fighting. 120 isis fighters at least were killed and 13 peshmerga forces were killed in this operation that is backed by coalition air power. what we're seeing right now is this is part of the bigger operation that has been ongoing for some weeks now. we have seen the peshmerga forces moving in from the north on mosul and iraqi forces moving in from the south. just last month the iraqis launched a major offensive also
backed by coalition air power, and they seized very strategic air base southwest of mosul. an air base that's expected to be a major staging ground for the final push when that's happens into the city of mosul. so what is going on right now according to u.s. and iraqi forces is part of the bigger plan here to encircle mosul and cut it off before that push into the city. this is going to be a huge challenge. this is a major urban center, mosul, with a population estimate with about 700,000 to about a million people who have been living under isis control since june 2014. so this is going to be a very tricky and difficult operation as expected here because they're going into a major urban center to try and preserve civilian lives and infrastructure when this operation goes under way. >> of course, as this offensive continues, we have to look to those civilians.
those who are fleeing trying to find a better life and escape with their lives and loved ones. what are their circumstances? >> well, a lot of concern from the aid organizations for those civilians. according to one aid organization, mercy corps saying that recent fighting around mosul as we've seen in some of these villages and towns, the iraqi forces and kurdish forces are taking over. at least 70,000 have been displaced. last week mercy corps was saying they expect within a two-week period at least 200,000 more people will be displaced by this ongoing fighting. and we're talking about people who are fleeing conflict. they are taking a dangerous journey to get out of this conflict. and they are doing so at a time when the weather in iraq we're talking about sweltering heat there of temperatures reaching 50 degrees celsius and they're lacking the basic essentials of
food and water. when they make it to the relative safety of whatever areas they get to there, there's a struggle to cope with this exodus, with people arriving. these are communities that have already been stretched by this displacement crisis and internly displaced refugees. we're talking about more than 3 million people who have been displaced in iraq since 2014. and the expectation is about a million others will be displaced with the fighting to liberate the city of mosul. >> the numbers of displaced civilians just shocking. monitoring the situation there in mosul from her vantage point in jordan. also following a story in new york where police there are investigating the killings of an imam and his assistant on saturday. law enforcement officials tell cnn that police are now questioning a possible suspect. >> mourners gathered for the two
men killed. the men were walking home from their mosque when a gunman shot both in the head in broad daylight. dave carlin with wcbs has more now on that story. >> reporter: video from a home security camera in ozone park shows the murders of 55-year-old imam and his 64-year-old friend thara uddin. you can't make out faces but you see them in traditional clothing. his friend next to him as they walk following midday prayers. coming up from behind is the suspect. it's the next two seconds we won't show when bullets were fired and the men fell, fatally shot on to the sidewalk. the suspect walked away with no apparent urgency and no one to stop him. >> i heard five shots fired. >> a witness was inside his car parked on liberty avenue and ran to the scene shortly after the gunman fled. >> i saw police.
they already was there. they surround the place and took the person in the ambulance. >> you have a gunman on the loose that can shoot your family at any time. >> reporter: a neighbor who gave us the security camera video says looking at it, you see no robbery. he calls them hate crime assassinations. the police have yet to classify the case that way. investigators spoke to witnesses who helped them create this suspect sketch of a man described as tall with a medium c c complection. at the imam's mosque, religious leaders, politicians and concerned citizens demanded justice, heightened security and awareness. >> the imam to be shot in cold blood in the middle of the day in the back of the has. another person shot in the back, if these are the facts. how could you not be concerned about your brother, your mother, your father and your children. and this is when we all have to come together. >> reporter: akanji moved to
queens two years ago. he leaves behind seven children and uddin leaves behind three. >> he's my uncle. he's a good guy. why somebody shoot him, i don't know. >> that was dave carlin reporting. >> new york's mayor quickly condemned the shootings. bill de blasio issued a statement saying, while we do not yet know the motivation for the murders, we do know our muslim communities are in the perpetual crosshairs of bigotry. >> it remains critical that we work to bridge the divides that threaten to undermine the gre greatness of our city and country. two years after massive demonstrations in hong kong, the protest leaders learn their punishment. the details ahead. be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin.

leaders of the umbrella revolution are under orders to perform community service. >> three protest leaders were convicted last month per the demonstration that ultimately sparked massive rallies two years ago in the streets of hong kong. following the story, our mallika kapur is live outside the courthouse. good to have you with us. what can you tell us about these sentences? >> well, this sentence was a lot lighter, george, than many people were expecting. the maximum here could have been two years in prison but they got away with just community service. and the details of which are as follows. joshua wang who has become the face of the pro-democracy movement. he was sentenced to 80 hours of community service. nathan law 130 and alex chow a three-week prison sentence, suspended for one year. if he maintains a clean record
for another year going forward, then he serves no prison time at all. the courts did explain why it gave these three young men such a light sentence, and it says it's because the court genuinely believes these people are truly driven by their political ideals and they weren't out to harm anyone. and that they believe they had the best interest in mind when it comes to their society, to the fabric of hong kong. speaking earlier outside the court, the face of the movement, joshua wang, he did explain his feelings afterward. he said he will continue to fight for democracy no matter what the sentence would have been. >> just facing a sentencing of 80 hours community service, but it will not affect my persi persistence and courage. this is a movement. in the future, i will continue
civil disobedience to motivate more hong kongers to fight for democracy and human rights. >> this sentence also means that these young men can take part in local politics. and that's crucial, especially for nathan law who is standing for local elections next month. that's something he would not have been able to do if he received any jail time at all. >> just to give our viewers some context on the situation, can you explain why this has been called the umbrella revolution? >> that's right. you might remember these pictures you may have seen two years ago in 2014 of hong kong's financial district. this district really came to a halt because there were tens of thousands of protesters, most of them young people who took to the streets and just sat there for 79 days bringing the city to
a halt. many of them held up umbrellas. it's very common to shield them sometimes from the rain, sometimes from the sun. these people were sitting there with their umbrellas. many were yellow in color. yellow being the color of pro-democracy movement here in hong kong. and they held up these umbrellas and also used it as a tool of self-defense against the police when the police used pepper spray to control the crowds. that's why it's got the name of the umbrella movement. what it really stands for is a description of the pro-democracy movement here in hong kong which is largely led by the youth of hong kong and these three student leaders very much the leaders of this movement. >> mallika kapur live in hong kong where it's 3:36 p.m. thank you for your reporting. want to tell you about some amazing video that's coming out of central china. a bus driver stops a car from being washed away.
