defense information to take back home, to help their countries develop their own edge, to compete with the united states. >> yes. there are a lot of people out there working on behalf of china. ramping up. turkey intensifies its fight against isis and kurdish fighters in northern syria. clearing up donald trump says he will finally clarify his position on u.s. immigrant deportations this week. and cleaning up. beyonce wins big at the mtv awards in new york. hello, and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church, and this is cnn newsroom. the turkish military is conducting air strikes in syria, and for the first time they are admitting that isis is not their
11:01 pm
only target. state media report that one strike killed 25 members of a kurdish militia. the ypg. turkey considers them to be a terror group. in the same area turkish-backed units are destroying to clear villages of kurdish forces. state media says that 13 such villages were "cleansed". nick peyton walsh is near the border. >> the president clear in the speech in this border city of gaza. they will fight both isis and the syrian kurds with the same determination. they hunt out isis cells in this city. really it appeared the focus of the speech was to mourn those lives lost in a recent wedding bombing here that killed over 50. isis took responsibility for that. at the same time to thank the city for the support it gave him during the recent failed coup
11:02 pm
attempt. where is the turkish military and serbian rebels. fast movements today. we heard from the deputy prime minister, the desire for them to move along the border to a town that could potentially have a lot of the border in control of turkey and those syrian rebels getting backing for them. it's important because syrian kurds move into it recently to flush out isis with american support, and now claim to have mostly left. yet, those near it appear to be in clashes with advancing syrian rebel force and the turkish military too. one turkish life the previous night was taken, and today we are hearing from turkish state media that an air strike may have killed 25 militants in that particular area. although activists are saying those people were, in fact, civilians. it's unclear really what happened there. what is clear is that the turkish military and those rebels working along side them purport to be taking more and
11:03 pm
more villages hour by hour. they are clearly in confrontation with the syrian kurds and also receive american backing. this puts u.s. policy in a great dilemma here. they've been backing the syrian kurds in their fight against ice irks but at the same time they've also been supportive of the same syrian rebels that the turkish are now backing as well. it's confusing dilemma, and it does suggest that the potential turkish invention here is ntervt over in a matter of weeks, but it will be months. they have two adversaries. many hoped they would focus on isis, but it does look like their broader threat they see of the syrian kurds who they consider terrorists may take up a lot of their manpower. complicated and dangerous times ahead for turkey, and the president's trip here, very much a sign of how important this military action is. nick peyton walsh, cnn, gaza. to the southwest, mourners in the city of aleppo. activists say as many as 24
11:04 pm
people were killed and 30 were wounded. they were attending a wake for several children killed in another bombing in the same area on thursday. libyan forces say they are close to recapturing the coastal city of sert from -- sirte from isis. the militants have been pushed back into a small residential area. at least 34 libyan fighters were killed sunday, and more than 150 ruined. isis used multiple suicide bombs to try to stop libyan troops from advancing. in the race for the white house, donald trump says he is finally going to make his big immigration speech. it will happen wednesday according to a trump tweet and take place in the border state of arizona. trump has faced criticism this
11:05 pm
past week for what some say is his shifting tone on immigration. on tuesday he suggested to fox news he would allow some undocumented immigrants to stay in the u.s. two days later he walked back those comments with cnn's anderson cooper. then at an appearance in iowa over the weekend he had this to say. >> on day one i am going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. [ cheering ] including removing the hundreds and thousands of criminal illegal immigrants that have been released into the united states and united states communities under the incompetent obama, clinton administration. >> and trump's pick for vice president is among those defending his immigration stance.
11:06 pm
mike pence told cnn's jake tapper that trump's position has been consistent all along. >> donald trump will articulate a policy about how we deal with that population, but i promise you he is going to remain completely focused on american citizens and people who are here legally and how we get this to work -- >> i don't understand people who play by the rules. >> i don't understand why it's the fault of the media for focussing on an issue that you're crediting donald trump for bringing to the floor. the idea is mr. trump won the primaries in no small way because he had the position saying all 11 million or 12 million undocumented immigrants will be forced to leave the country. now you right this minute are not saying that's the policy. >> well, don't -- >> you are saying he will be unveiling it in the next two weeks. it's 72 days until the election. >> the way you characterize his position is one thing. i think he has been completely -- >> i just ran the clip. >> jake, he has been completely consistent in the principles he has articulated. >> nobody was talking about
11:07 pm
illegal immigration when donald trump entered this campaign. he was attacked from day one for putting the whole issue of the violence that is derived from certain individuals that come into this country illegally on the table. he has made it clear we're going to secure our borders, we're going to build a wall are, we're going to enforce the laws of this country and stand up and uphold the constitution of the united states of america. you see a ceo at work. you see someone engaging the american people, listening to the american people. he is hearing from all sides. i promise you, he is a decisive leader. he will stand on the principles that have underpinned his commitment to end illegal immigration in this country, and that's what people will learn more about in the days ahead. let's be clear. hillary clinton supports open borders, amnesty, and even wants to increase syrian refugees to this country by 550%. you couldn't have a more clear
11:08 pm
choice. >> mike pence speaking there to cnn's jake tapper. despite the claim that trump is remaining consistent on immigration, republican national committee chairman reince priebus said sunday that trump is reflecting on his position. turning to another big story we're watching. the revolutionary armed forces of columbia, better known as farc have announced a permanent cease-fire beginning on monday. they agreed to a piece deal with columbian officials. it would end the 52-year conflict with the government. it still must be approved by a majority of columbians in a referendum on october 2nd. well, brazil's embattled president takes the floor on monday to present her defense to the country's senate against impeachment charges. she was suspended in may on allegations of corruption and mismanagement of brazil's
11:09 pm
finances. she says she has done nothing wrong. a bearier has been constructed outside congress to prevent clashes between pro and anti-impeachment protesters. cnn shasta darlington has the latest from brazilia. the suspended president rousseff about to take her last stand in the long-running impeachment battle. on monday morning she'll appear right here in the senate to defend herself against accusations she doctored the budget to hide a shortfall. now, rousseff said she didn't do anything illegal, and she points out that some of the lawmakers spearhead egg the impeachment effort are actually being investigated for corruption. the impeachment proceedings have been dragging on for months. in fact, rousseff was suspended in may temporarily replaced by her advisor, one of the people she accuses of trying to orchestrate her ouster. final vote is expected to begin on tuesday. two-thirds of the 81 senators
11:10 pm
would have to vote in favor of an impeachment for rousseff to be permanently removed from office. that is expected to happen. now, remember, rousseff was re-elected by a narrow margin back in 2014, but after that her popularity plummeted as the country went into a deep recession and a corruption investigation engulfed several politicians in her own party as well as allied parties. if the senate now confirms this impeachment, michelle will take over on a permanent basis until the term ends in 2018 inheriting an economy in tatters and a country divided. zbliefrmt an explosion overnight just outside brussels at the national institute of criminalology and forensics.

we'll continue to follow that story and bring you the details as they come into us. well, five days after the earthquake in central italy the hard-hit town of amatrice is turning into a demolition zone. there's little hope left of finding anyone alive in the debris. the critical 72-hour window for survival has long passed. emergency crews are now focussing on recovering bodies. they also are knocking down half standing buildings to make sure they don't topple during aftershoc aftershocks. the disaster has claimed nearly 300 lives. well, as workers clear away the debris, the task of rebuilding is ahead, but frederick plankon reports, some of the villagers are deciding whether to rebuild at all.
11:12 pm
mosimo was in the town when the earth began to shake. it was my daughter's birthday, the day of the quake, he says. we organized a party. five of the girls were invited were killed in the quake. she had played with some of them the night before the disaster. more than 200 people died in amatrice alone. italy's prime minister has vowed to rebuild this ancient town, but some of the smaller villages in this mountainous area may not be so lucky. this is capricia just down the road from amatrice. this village has been evacuated after the earthquake, but the residents here face a much more fundamental question, and that is whether they'll ever be able to return to their homes, whether this village will be viable in the future. rosella santarelli. she's been staying in this camper van afraid to enter any building because of frequent
11:13 pm
aftershocks. i don't think there will be a future, she says. our village is poor. there are no people and no jobs. amatrice is five miles away, but there's nothing left of that. as she and the others survey the damage to their houses, italy has some tough decisions to make. should villages like this one with a tiny population in an area prone to earthquakes be fixed or is it better and safer to abandon them? there are villages that were already empty before the quake, rosaella says. there are almost no young people anywhere. the towns are old. i think now they will really depopulate. for many tourists, villages like capricia epit miomize the beautf the italian country side. in the long run, it may have accelerated the demise of a piece of this country's rich ancient heritage as well. cnn, italy.

police search los angeles international airport just a short time ago after receiving reports of an active shooter. it was a false alarm, later determined to be "loud noises." the federal aviation administration issued a ground stop that lifted about an hour ago, and the delayed number of flights. traffic came to a stand-still around the airport. earlier this month reports of a possible active shooter at new york's jfk airport sent panicked travellers running for corps. those reports were also false. despite the destruction and loss in its, one couple in the earthquake zone is looking ahead to their life together. their story still to come. and gun violence on chicago's streets takes the life of a young woman and mother of four. after the break, you will hear from her grieving family. >> it just hurts to hear kids

11:37 pm
manufactures. he is also accused of using his government cell phone 84 times to call her, racking up 1400 minutes at the pentagon's expense during just one six-month period. the most damning allegations revolve around the couple's "swinger lifestyle," which the report goes as far as to define as engaging in group sex. it says the couple's photograph was posted on this website for swingers. that same photo was later found in the e-mail, and the government report said the couple visited swingers clubs as far back as 2012 when he was stationed at fort benning, florida. experts say it could have put u.s. national security at risk. because he held several important positions in the military, krug running america's response to russia in eastern europe, sources say that if the affair and the swinging had been discovered by another country, it would have left him vulnerable to blackmail and espionage. >> russia as we know has an

the biggest names in music descendod new york city sunday night for the 2016 mtv video music awards. beyonce took home the moon man for the biggest award of the night, video of the year for her music video "formation." the pop superstar also stole the show with a jaw-dropping 16-minute performance. ♪ ♪ ♪ jealous or crazy jealous or crazy ♪ ♪ being walked all over lately ♪ crazy, crazy >> kanye west hit the vma stage
11:52 pm
with an improvised and at times rambling speech. the rap star then introduced the video for his new single "fade." he called his latest creation a, quote, piece of my art. it was also a big night for rihanna. ♪ ♪ rihanna was presented with the michael jackson video vanguard award. she formed a total of four times during the night to mark her achievement. kim serafin joins me, the senior editor for "in touch" weekly. at the mtv video music awards, the big prize belonged to beyonce, but everyone loves to talk about the big spectacles. what topped everything? was it beyonce? >> oh, yeah. this was certainly beyonce's night. she won video of the year, best
11:53 pm
female video and that performance that hadn't been announced but was leaked yesterday that she was maybe forming. she'd been in secret rehearsals. this was amazing. this was like a mini concert. she took over the entire stage. she did a couple of songs, ending with "formation." she looked amazing. dominated the stage, and she stood out. in a way, rihanna who performed basically every five minutes it felt like. rihanna did four performances. one of the comedians, key and peele made a joke saying it was the rihanna show featuring the vmas. it was really about beyonce and rihanna all night long. >> kanye west got four minutes at the awards to do whatever he wanted. did he use his time wisely? what's being said about that? >> we didn't really know what kanye was going to be doing, but he always makes a scene, although this was a demure for
11:54 pm
kanye's style. he's been in this feed with taylor swift. people were waiting to see what he said about her. people have been coming up to him and saying take taylor down. he said, no, i love you all. that's why i called taylor. he got in that little dig at taylor n then introduced his own video he was doing. he went on talking about people being shot in chicago and his -- people he idolizes like disney and steve jobs and himself, so kanye, you know something is going to happen when you have kanye speak and just give him the stage. i thought he was a little more contained than he normally. >> it's been ten years since britney spears has performed at the vmas. and, well, they put her right after beyonce. how did that go? that's a tough act to follow. >> yeah, it's tough. britney hadn't performed for ten years. she'd been a staple for the vmas for so long.
11:55 pm
whether it was her with the python or her kissing madonna, she defined so many memorable moments of the vmas. so much build-up to this. she's been doing her show in las vegas. she's been performing. even she said she's nervous. everyone was watching to see how this would go. she looked incredible. she looks like the same girl we saw ten years ago forming. there's always been questionings about whether britney is singing or lip-syncing. of course, people factor that in and wonder if she's singing or lip-syncing. it's fine because she did a good job and there was so much build-up. it's hard to perform after beyon beyonce. i think she did a good job, and it's great to see her. if you think about the britney who we remember from 2008, 2009, she turned her life around and looks great. >> the critics have always been tough on her. kim serafin, thanks so much. >> thanks so much. i'm rosemary church.

mixed messages after days of questions about his deportation policy, donald trump says he will deliver a major speech on immigration this week. plus, a new beginning. a ceasefire between the colombian government and farc rebels formally goes into effect ending decades of conflict. beyonce steals the show. the mtv video music awards. welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church, and this is "cnn newsroom." in the race for the white house, donald trump says he's about to make a major speech on immigration. the republican nominee has been under fire for his shifting tone on the issue. now he's tweeted he wants a big crowd when he makes the speech wednesday in the border state of
12:01 am
arizona. trump suggested earlier this week he'd allow some undocumented immigrants to stay in the u.s., but he walked back those comments with cnn's anderson cooper on thursday, and he had this to say in iowa over the weekend. >> on day one, i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. including removing the hundreds and thousands of criminal illegal immigrants that have been released into the united states and united states communities under the incompetent obama/clinton administration. >> trump's vice presidential running mate is among those defending his immigration stance. mike pence told cnn's jake tapper that trump's position has been consistent all along. >> donald trump will articulate
12:02 am
a policy about how we deal with that population, but i promise you, he is going to remain completely focused on american citizens and people who are here legally and how we get this country working for people who play by the rules. >> i don't understand why it's the fault of the media for focussing on an issue that's you're crediting donald trump for bringing to the fore. the idea is mr. trump won the primaries in no small way because he had these very forceful position saying all 11 or 12 million undocumented immigrants will be forced to leave the country. now you are not saying that that's the policy. >> well, don't -- >> you're saying he's going to be unveiling it in the next few weeks. it's 72 days until the election. >> the way you characterize his position is one thing. >> we just ran the clip. >> he's been extremely consistent in the principles he articulated. nobody was talking about illegal immigration when donald trump entered this campaign. he was attacked from day one for putting the issue of the violence that is derived from
12:03 am
certain individuals that come into this country illegally on the table. he's made it clear we're going to secure our borders, build a wall, enforce the laws of this country, stand up and uphold the constitution of the united states of america. what you see going on right now, and i think at a certain level it's very refreshing because it's the donald trump that i see every day. you see a ceo at work. you see someone who is engaging the american people, listening to the american people. he's hearing from all sides. but i promise you, he is a decisive leader. he will stand on the principles that have underpinned his commitment to end illegal immigration in this country, and that's what people will learn more about in the days ahead. let's be clear. hillary clinton supports open borders, amnesty and even wants to increase syrian refugees to this country by 550%. you couldn't have a more clear choice. >> mike pence speaking there to cnn's jake tapper. despite pence's claim that trump
12:04 am
is remaining consistent to immigration, republican national committee chairman reince priebus said sunday that trump is reflecting on his position. officials in brussels say an attack on the national institute of criminology and forensics was not terror related. instead, they say it appears to be a criminal act. a car rammed through several fences before whoever was driving set fire to part of the building and then to the vehicle. equipment in the institute's federal police crime lab was damaged, but there were no casualties. the turkish military is conducting air strikes in syria, and for the first time, they are admitting that isis is not their only target. state media report that one strike near jarablus killed 25 members of a kurdish militia. the ypg. turkey considers them to be a terror group. in the same area, turkish-backed
12:05 am
units of the free syrian army are trying to clear villages of kurdish forces. state media says that 13 such villages were, quote, cleansed. our nick paton walsh is near the border. >> reporter: president erdogan clear in his speech that they will fight isis and the syrian kurds, his military are now in confrontation openly with, with the same determination. saying, too, they hunt out isis cells in this city. really it appears the focus was to mourn the lives lost in a recent wedding bombing here that killed over 50. isis took responsibility for that and to thank the city for the support it gave him during the recent failed coup attempt. where is the turkish military and the syrian rebels working alongside it moving along. fast movements today. we've heard from the deputy prime minister the desire for them to move along the border. that could have a lot of the border in control of turkey and
12:06 am
those syrian rebels they are getting backing from them. there appear to be moving southeast toward the city. they moved in to flash out isis with american support and now claim to have mostly left, yet those near it appears to be in clashes with this advancing syrian rebel force and turkish military, too. those clashes claimed one turkish life the previous night and we're hearing from turkish media that an air strike may have killed 25 militants in that particular area, although activists are saying those were civilians. it's unclear really what happened there. what is clear is the turkish military and those rebels working alongside them report to be taking more and more villages hour by hour. they are clearly confrontation with the syrian kurds but receive u.s. backing. they've been backing the syrian kurds for quite some time in their fight against isis but they've also been supportive of the same syrian rebels the
12:07 am
turkish are now backing as well. it's very confusing dilemma of this war. it does suggest the potential turkish intervention is not over in a matter of weeks but months. they have two adversaries. many hope they'd focus on isis but it does look like their broader threat they see of the syrian kurds who they consider terrorists may take up a lot of their manpower, complicating dangerous times ahead. and president erdogan's trip a sign of hough w important this military action is. mourners in aleppo with the target of a barrel bombing saturday. as many as 24 people were killed and 30 of wounded. they were attending a wake for several children killed in another bombing in the same area on thursday. colombia's farc rebels have announced a permanent cease-fire
12:08 am
in their 52-year conflict with the government. the rebels agreed to a peace deal in havana last week. the deal mufts be approved by a majorities of colombians in a referendum scheduled for october. patrick opman has more on the lengthy negotiations that led to this peace deal. >> reporter: colombians take to the street to celebrate a long-awaited peace deal. colombia's president declared five decades of bloodshed were over. today begins the end of the suffering, the pain and tragedy of war, he said. from their jungle camps, the revolutionary armed forces, known as farc in spanish, battled the colombian government and carried out kidnapping to. the guerrillas controlled an area the size of swits lpd.
12:09 am
a string of military defeats forced the farc here to the negotiating table. as many of the farc leadership had million dollar bounties on their heads, cuba was considered neutral territory. the grueling talks dragged on for nearly four years until wednesday, they had a deal. i have the certainty that the agreement is the best possible agreement. we all wanted something more, but the deal we struck is a viable deal, said the colombian government's chief negotiator. on october 2nd, colombians will go to the polls to vote on the controversial deal. as part of the agreement, farc foot soldiers will leave the jungles s and re-enter society with training programs. if they pay restitution to their victims, they might avoid serious jailtime. something the farc insisted on from the beginning of the talks. we aren't considering going to jail this farc commander told me. he who fights for justice
12:10 am
doesn't deserve that. we don't act like a criminal terrorist group. we have a sacred fight. observers say the colombian government got the best possible deal. >> it's the best you can do that getting something better than this on the battlefield would have taken many more years and cost thousands or tens of thousands more lives. >> reporter: supporters and opponents of the deal are already in full campaign mode. while the majority of colombians approve of the peace process, for many, after a conflict that's taken over 200,000 lives to see the farc leadership walk away free and form a political party, that's a bitter pill to have to swallow. for many colombians, the best opportunity at peace after a half century of war is an opportunity they refuse to let slip away. patrick oppmann, cnn, havana. five days after the earthquake in central italy, the hard-hit town of amatrice is turning into a demolition zone. there's little hope left of
12:11 am
finding anyone alive in the debris. the critical 72-hour window for survival has long past. emergency crews are now focussing on recovering bodies there. they are also knocking down half-standing buildings to make sure they don't topple during aftershocks. the disaster has claimed nearly 300 lives. as workers clear away the debris, the task of rebuilding is ahead. but frederik pleitgen reports some of the affected villagers are deciding whether to rebuild at all. >> reporter: the grueling work continues for italian search crews still pulling bodies from the rubble. whole communities have been shattered by the loss of life and infrastructure. masimo was in amatrice when the earth began to shake. >> translator: it was my daughter's birthday the day of the quake, he says. we'd organized a party. five of the girls who were invited were killed in the
12:12 am
quake. she had played with some of them the night before the disaster. more than 200 people died in amatrice alone. italy's prime minister vowed to rebuild this ancient town but some of the smaller villages may not be so lucky. this is capricia. this one has been evacuated after the earthquake but the residents here face a much more fundamental question, and that is whether they'll ever be able to return to their homes, whether this village will be viable in the future. rosella santorelli is one of 12 residents of capricia. she's been staying in this camper van afraid to enter any building because of frequent aftershocks. i don't think there will be a future, she says. our village is poor. there are no people and no jobs. amatrice is five miles away but there's nothing left of that. as they survey the damage to their houses, italy has some
12:13 am
tough decisions to make. should villages like this one with a tiny population in an area prone to earthquakes be fixed or is it better and safer to abandon them? there are villages that were already empty before the earthquake, rocella says. there are almost no young people anywhere. the towns are old. i think now they will really depopulate. for many tourists, villages like capricia epitomize the beauty of the italian countryside. on top of the horrible human toll, it may have accelerated the demise of a piece of this country's rich, ancient heritage as well. fred pleitgen, cnn, italy. police searched los angeles international airport just a short time ago after receiving reports of an active shooter. it was a false alarm. later determined to be, quote, loud noises. travelers were evacuated, then
12:14 am
returned to be rescreened for security. the federal aviation administration issued a ground stop that lifted about two hours ago. but that delayed and diverted a number of flights. and earlier this month, reports of a possible active shooter at new york's jfk airport sent panicked travelers running for cover. those reports were also false. just ahead, the u.s. state of florida is taking action to stop the spread of zika. some fear its method for fighting the outbreak could do more harm than good. we'll explain. and the family of a young chicago mother is grieving her death as police voice anger over the violence that killed her. >> i'm frustrated. you should be frustrated. all chicagoans should be frustrated.
12:15 am

12:18 am
welcome back, everyone. 41 cases of locally transmitted zika virus have now been confirmed in singapore. most of the cases were discovered among foreign construction workers in a southeastern neighborhood. government officials say none of those with the disease had recently traveled to zika infected areas. singapore's first imported case
12:19 am
of the virus was reported in may when a man begin showing symptoms after returning from brazil. the zika virus is also spreading in the united states. the state of florida is fighting the outbreak with aerial spraying of a pesticide but some people have concerns that it could be hazardous. cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen has the details. >> reporter: zika is spreading in south florida, and the stakes are high. when pregnant women become infected with the virus, their babies can be born with devastating health effects. they've sprayed a pesticide from airplanes to kill the mosquitoes that carry zeka. but there's concern the chemical called naled may also be harmful to unborn babies. >> it's essentially a neurotoxin and can result in unborn children, in particular, having neurodevelopmental problems. >> reporter: the european union
12:20 am
has banned naled insecticide and in puerto rico, where zika has been rampant, people have demonstrated against naled. they filed a lawsuit against the centers for disease control to prevoent spraying saying there have been recent findings linking the presence of organophosphates and problems in babies whose mothers were exposed to this type of chemical during pregnancy. they say naled is safe and the best option. they say naled has been used extensively for years in the united states. that just two tablespoons are used over the size of a football field. this small amount does not pose a health risk to people, according to the cdc. so who is right? well, naled help stop babies from developing birth defects or could it harm them? dozens of studies have known when pregnant women are exposed
12:21 am
to naled, their children are more likely to develop behavior problems. for the most part those were done in agricultural areas where families live near spraying for many years. the risks are much smaller in florida where the zika sprayings have been done only four times. dr. berry ryan at emory university has done some of that research and supports the spraying. >> sika is a real problem. children who suffer from this would not be able to cope with the real world. they will never recover from this. >> reporter: he said naled can carry risks but not nearly as big as the risk posed by zika. elizabeth cohen, cnn, reporting. chicago police have arrested two brothers in the shooting death of nba star dwyane wade's cousin nykea aldridge. authorities say the pair are each charged with first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder. aldridge was caught in the crossfire while pushing her
12:22 am
infant child in a stroller friday. she was shot in the head and the arm. the chicago police superintendent says the suspects are gang members who were on parole for gun violations at the time of the shooting. >> karen sole was involved in a murder not only while on parole but while wearing a home monitoring bracelet. i want all of you to think about what i just said and ask what that tells you. it should tell you that it's time to stop talking and to get serious and take action when it comes to how we sentence our repeat gun offenders. i'm frustrated. you should be frustrated. all chicagoans should be frustrated. >> the family of nykea aldridge held a vigil to celebrate her life sunday. aldridge had four children. her mother spoke to cnn about how they are coping with her
12:23 am
death. >> they miss their mom. they want their mom. it just hurts to hear kids saying they want their mom and their mom won't be in their lives anymore. only through spirit. only through pictures. that's the only way they're going to know their mom for the rest of their lives. the only thing they have to go on is what they had. it's just heartbreaking. it's really -- oh, god, it's heartbreaking. and i truly, truly, from the bottom of my heart, i forgive them. i forgive them. i can't bring her back, but i forgive them, and i just pray to god that they pray to god to ask for forgiveness for what they've done. they've taken a precious life senselessly. and i just love them.
12:24 am
>> and dwyane wade has spoken out about his cousin's death on twitter saying this, four kids lost their mom for no reason. unreal. enough is enough. a florida woman says the day she was pulled over by police was the day that saved her life. cnn's victor blackwell has the story of an officer who went above and beyond the call of duty. >> i saw an officer pull behind me. i moved over to the lane hoping he would pass me, but he didn't. >> reporter: then 31-year-old breanna burns was pulled over on that august night a year ago, she had no idea the traffic stop would change her life. martin county florida sheriff's deputy justin albauer stopped her for serving out of her lane. >> her hands were shaking. she was abnormally nervous. >> reporter: she had good reason to be nervous. >> after a brief conversation, she just came clean. >> i had two bag s of heroin a
12:25 am
paraphernalia. >> i've never had it where somebody is open and says i have narcotics in the car. >> reporter: she explained her year-long struggle with opioid dependency and they spent the day calling detox centers and had no luck getting into one. it wasn't just that the deputy allowed her to tell her story. it was that he listened. >> he was there to help me, and he did just that. >> i don't judge anybody. >> reporter: breanna was arrested that night. just before he took her to her cell -- >> i let her know that she could call me if she needed, to and that i wished her the best of luck. >> reporter: after a short stint in county jail, she checked into a county rehab program and halfway house and drug court program. and as she tried to turn her life around, she never forgot about that night she was pulled over here. breanna, who says she's now drug-free, eventually reached albauer at the sheriff's office and passed along a letter.
12:26 am
>> deputy albauer, this time a year ago, you forever changed my life. words cannot express how thankful i am for you. ever since that night you made me realize i have a great purpose here in life. >> i stopped, pulled over and read it and, it's, yeah, it hit you. >> reporter: victor blackwell, cnn, stewart, florida. >> great outcome there. we'll take a break here. still to come, one italian couple faced a devastating turn in their wedding plans. the choice they made for themselves and their village. and u.s. medics lend their help in iraq in the war against isis. how they're saving lives against all odds. that's still to come. stay with us. if your sneezes are a force to be reckoned with... you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec® for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec® is different than claritin®. because it starts working faster on the first day you take it.

12:32 am
describe. you can do nothing. i remember that day when the earthquake hit us that i called my friends, and she lose her house. >> reporter: ramon was supposed to get married here in the village church right in the heart of italy's quake zone. but father giovani told him no, absolutely not. the altar is covered in rubble. there are cracks running up the wall and its 16th century frescos now torn open and crumbling. >> when he told me the church is unsafe, i talk with my wife and say i want to celebrate my wedding over there because they need to -- a moment to think of the other thing. >> reporter: the wedding will
12:33 am
happen here instead with the mountains standing witness. all good and well, but martine ahis bride, was not so sure getting married in a village damaged by the earthquake was such a good idea. especially with heavy aftershocks continuing to this day. while first i was shocked, she said. we've been organizing this for more than a year. of course i was worried and nervous and didn't want to create even more problems for the village. but everyone has been so wonderful and welcoming, she says. soon, it's time. martina's father carefully escorts her to the village. where ramon is waiting, beaming, his wedding suit freshly repaired. the band begins to play the wedding march, and the bride walks down the aisle as the village cheers. >> i love the city. i love the people. i know that people -- everybody will -- beautiful people. everybody love me, so why i take

>> reporter: john, a trained emergency medical technician from sir kuryracussyracuse, new volunteering. pete of new jersey is a former marine turned medic who works with a non-profit providing medical training and assistance. there was no advanced warning when a casualty is coming in. no time to prep for the next one arrives. >> the toughest thing about being out here as a combat medic is when your patients don't live. >> come on, man. say with us. come back to us. >> sometimes we can't fix everything. that's the hardest part for me personally. you want to save everybody, but you can't. >> there's a breakdown in communication between us coalition forces, peshmerga. it's difficult when you're trying your best to work on someone, but just -- the rest of the system isn't there. or it's not working properly. >> reporter: they both say they had comfortable, happy lives at
12:37 am
home. >> right here. right here. >> was it guilt? >> guilt or sense of purpose. sometimes those overlap. somewhere in the middle. i can help people at home, for sure, and i do. and i feel good for what i do there, but here, that feeling is much greater. the peshmerga need significant help. they need training. they need actual combat medical unit. people are throwing ammunition and guns at this place all day long. that's not saving lives. >> when i think of isis, i think of, you know, khmer rouge, nazis. there are very few times in history there's such a black and white, good versus evil situation. they've been carrying this war in this region on their backs with not nearly enough support. n peop and people back home are upset about shootings and things like

limited. plenty of rainfall up to ten inches in some of these areas that could see significant flooding risks. here's what it's looking like with tropical depression eight. this could be ian. the indications are we'll get up to tropical storm status. it will brush by the carolinas, move away from the united states. a couple of close calls. of course, still a few days left. it's worth noting that those storms could change and alter in their speed and direction. here's the last one, hurricane gaston, category 3. look at this. sitting there, absolutely stationary. at this point it will veer away from vermuda towards the azores way out across the central atlantic. four areas of interest, and at this point, all four of them want to make indirect impacts to land, if at all. so -- >> that's how we like it. >> exactly how we like it. >> doesn't happen too often. yes, 4 for 4 with hopefully not having direct impact. >> hopefully we can keep that going throughout the season.

the biggest names in music descended on new york city sunday night for the 2016 mtv video music awards. beyonce took home the moon man for the biggest award of the night, video of the year for her music video "formation." the pop superstar also stole the show with a jaw-dropping 16-minute performance. ♪ ♪ jealous or crazy jealous or crazy ♪ ♪ being walked all over lately ♪ walked all over lately ♪ crazy, crazy >> kanye west hit the vma stage with an improvised and at times rambling speech. the rap star then introduced the
12:52 am
video for his new single "fade." he called his latest creation a, quote, piece of my art. it was also a big night for rihanna. she received the michael jackson video vanguard award performing a total of four times throughout the night to mark her achievement. ♪ kim serafin joins me, the senior editor for "in touch" weekly magazine. at the mtv video music awards, the big prize belonged to beyonce, but everyone loves to talk about the big spectacles. what topped everything? was it beyonce? >> oh, yeah. this was certainly beyonce's night. she won video of the year, best female video and that performance that hadn't been announced but it was leaked yesterday that she was maybe performing. she'd been in secret rehearsals. this was amazing. this was like a mini concert. she took over the entire stage.
12:53 am
she did a couple of songs, ending with "formation." she looked amazing. she dominated the stage, and she stood out. in a way, rihanna who performed basically every five minutes it felt like. rihanna did four performances. even one of the comedians, key and peele made a joke saying it was the rihanna show featuring the vmas. it was really about beyonce and rihanna show featuring the vmas because it was all about these two women all night long. >> kanye west got four minutes at the awards to do whatever he wanted. did he use his time wisely? what's being said about that? >> we didn't really know what kanye was going to be doing, but he always makes a scene, although this was a demure for kanye's style. he's been in this feud with taylor swift. people were waiting to see what he said about her. people have been coming up to him and saying, take taylor
12:54 am
down. he said, no, i love you all. that's why i called taylor. he got in that little dig at taylor, and then introduced his own video he was doing. he went on talking about people being shot in chicago and his -- people he idolizes like disney and steve jobs and himself, so kanye, you know something is going to happen when you have kanye speak and just give him the stage. but he did a nice job. i thought he was a little more contained than he normally is. >> it's been ten years since britney spears has performed at the vmas. and, well, they put her right after beyonce. how did that go? that's a tough act to follow. >> yeah, it's tough. britney hadn't performed for ten years. she'd been a staple for the vmas for so long. we all remember whether it was her with the python or her kissing madonna, she defined so many memorable moments of the vmas. so much build-up to this. she's been doing her show in las vegas. she's been performing.
12:55 am
even she said she's nervous. everyone was watching to see how this would go. she looked incredible. she looks like the same girl we saw ten years ago performing. there's always been questionings about whether britney is singing or lip-syncing. of course, people factor that in and wonder if she's singing or lip-syncing. it's fine because she did a good job and there was so much build-up. it's hard to perform after beyonce. anyone would have a tough time, but i think she did a good job. and it's great to see her. if you think about the britney who we remember from 2008, 2009, she turned her life around and looks great. >> the critics have always been tough on her. kim serafin, thanks so much. >> thanks so much. okay. how about this story. six scientists have returned to civilization after living in a mars simulation habitat for a year on a hawaiian volcano. volunteers from france, germany and the u.s. lived in an
