1:00 am
on her way as thousands gather at st. peters to witness. i'm zain asher. "cnn newsroom" starts right now. it is official in the coming hour we will no longer refer to her as mother theresa buttheres.
1:01 am
she is about to become a saint. tens of thousands of people have gathered at the vatican for this ceremony to witness history unfold right before their eyes. mother theresa was, of course, a roman catholic nun who devoted her life to helping the poor, the forgotten, the sick, the marginalized of society. she was known as the saint of the gutters. she was, of course, recognized for her work. she did receive a nobel peace prize in 1979. she passed away in 1997 at the age of 87. dena joins us live from st. pete terse square. it is a very sort of long and sort of complicated process to become a saint. she passed away in 1997. explain to us the last ten years what has happened to bring us to
1:02 am
this point. >> well, you're right. normally it is a very lengthy process, but in vatican terms, mother teresa's process has been fast tracked. we don't want to wait the standard five years that they normally wait after somebody dies, we want to speed up the process because he was already convinced that she had led a saintly life. so the vatican did that. it's taken about 20 years but that's a short time in vatican terms. and it culminates in this day, zain, where in half an hour we will see pope francis come to the altar behind me, a cardinal will read to the crowd something of the life of mother teresa and ask the pope formally to declare her a saint. that happens at the top. then there is a mass which goes back centuries, of course, the tradition of making saints in the catholic church. then there is a solemn procession with a relic of
1:03 am
mother teresa. the relic is a vile of her blood and a wooden cross. that is carried up. that is very symbolic and important when it comes to saints because throughout the centuries you've always taken some part of the saint and buried it somewhere and actually on top of that, the churches that you see around rome have been erected. so this is a ceremony which goes back centuries. we all know, of course, about mother teresa, but one of the things that the vatican looks for is not just her works during her life but miracles, and the two miracles which they determined for mother teresa, were an indian woman, monica vezra who was cured of stomach cancer and a man who held a holy card of mother teresa. the abscesses on his brain were
1:04 am
medically inexpick pli disappeared and the vatican said this is the second miracle needed to make her a saint. i want to say, zain, that pope francis has just told everybody that he will be offering a pizza party for the poor and the homeless here in the vatican after the ceremony. 1500 of them, some of them from mother teresa's house here in rome. that is his gesture and his way of celebrating that day, zain. >> that pizza party, i would love to take part. the two miracles, it must be a tricky thing to verify. if somebody said i was cured and healed because of mother teresa interceding, how does the vatican go about verifying that's actually true? >> well, frankly, that's part of the reason why it takes so long because there's first kind of a gathering of people who claimed to have received miracles. they have to have the medical
1:05 am
evidence. i've seen some of the scans of the before and the after, for example, in the case of the brain infection of the abscesses on the brain of the man from brazil. so there is a lengthy process whereby in the first instance they talk to the local doctors, in this case for example in brazil, then they bring all of that medical evidence to rome to the vatican. they have their own medical doctors who examine it and see if it can be explained. it has to be a spontaneous healing. it has to have occurred after the death of the person in question and it has to have occurred because the people played in particularly to that person. that is their criteria. it does take some time to sift through a lot of the claims of miracles but in the end they have determined that these two people were, indeed, healed by the intercession of mother teresa, that means mother teresa
1:06 am
asking god to do the healing. >> a difficult thing to verify. we'll check in with you in about half an hour or so from now. thank you so much. a busy day at the vatican. also a busy day for world leaders in hangzhou, china. the world leaders, all 20 of them, i believe gathered earlier. the american and turkish president saying they will be cooperating saying that they will be cooperating so that those behind the failed coup will be brought to order. we're joined now live from hangzhou. i want to talk about this meeting between president
1:07 am
erdogan and barack obama. that must have been a somewhat awkward meeting and also the coup attempt as well. walk us through that. >> well, both leaders certainly have a lot to discuss. this was the first time that they had met face to face since that failed coup attempt back in july. both leaders sat on the opposite side of the table. they had a private meeting and both gave one statement each to the press afterwards. initially in both statements both president obama and president erdogan reaffirmed their commitment, their alliance in the fight against isis, but it was president erdogan who did bring up some of the strained tensions over the past month or two months now specifically talking about america's role about what happened in turkey and what he meant by that was talking about a turkish
1:08 am
theologian who lives there. goulen is the man responsible for organizing the attempt. they wanted the united states to extradite him back to turkey. president erdogan said his government is gathering more evidence against goulan to present to the united states. president erdogan said that to the press. here's a little bit of what he had to say. >> translator: against this terrorist before the coup attempt we had put together some documentation, amassed some evidence which we have submitted to the united states and the post coup attempt related documentation therein will be amassed and submitted to our friends in the united states. we had welcomed a delegation from the american ministry of
1:09 am
justice and a similar delegation from the turkish ministry of justice will go to the united states. we will travel together to the united states whereby they will concentrate their efforts on the presentation of this evidence. >> reporter: i think at some point down the road what most people are expecting is that after that evidence is presented, turkey will formally request goulan is extradited back to turkey. u.s. war planes routinely take off from an airbase in turkey to attack isis targets. both countries have a lot at stake. president obama took time out to have a bilateral meeting with his turkish counterpart. a lot to discuss. >> and, matt, just putting turkey aside, i want to talk about the relationship between
1:10 am
president obama and british prime minister theresa may. they also had a press conference as well. the focus was on the fact that the relationship between the u.k. and u.s. will still remain special despite the fact that we are now in a post brexit world. just walk us through that. >> reporter: well, what you heard from both of the leaders when they came out, this is the first meet being they had since theresa may became prime minister, but what you heard from both sides, despite what happened with that brexit vote, this is a special relationship. president obama said the united states does not have a stronger partner in the world. that's exactly what you heard from theresa may. the fact remains her job here is to start laying the groundwork to re-establish some of these trade ties with some of the other largest economies in the world, and the united states is probably for the u.k. at the very top of that list as its largest trading partner. so she has a clear interest here to make sure that the relationship with the united
1:11 am
states stays strong so that in the future as they begin to lay out these details a new trade deal that could benefit the united kingdom is eventually comes to fruition. brittain, she says, is open for business. they want to start laying out the framework for these trade deals, but even theresa may herself admits that that will not necessarily be easy, that it will not be smooth sailing all the time as she put it. still lots of work for the new british prime minister. >> as she said, brexit of course means brexit. not going to be any sort of second go around, any sort of referendum. she did clear that up off the top. thank you so much. appreciate that. i want to turn to the u.s. tropical storm hermine is winding itself up again regaining strength to batter the u.s. forecasters say hermine will have hurricane force winds on sunday of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
1:12 am
the weather service expects widespread flooding from atlantic city south all along the coast to the state of delaware. 38.5 million people could be affected by the storm and people are taking it very, very very seriously. no swimming will be allowed on new york city beaches on sunday. forecasters expect delaware and new jersey to be spared from particularly heavy rain. i want to turn to meteorologist derek van dam who joins us live in the studio. it's interesting. when you think about labor day in the u.s., you associate it with people traveling, summer, beaches, fireworks, that sort of thing but this is really going to be a sort of hunker down, no beach at all weekend. >> couldn't have had a worse time. people want to squeeze in that last bit of sunshine. especially atlantic city. i think of that place filled with people, residents, tourists trying to flock to the beaches. this is not that weekend. >> yeah. >> you know, the thing about it is that it's not going to be a particularly rainy weekend so it
1:13 am
might be tempting to want to get out to the beach, but the winds, the rip tides and the potential storm surge from the system is something that people are really going to have to take note of and heed the warnings from their local emergency officials. this is what they're looking at. cape hatteras, long island, including new york city. the shading of yellow by connecticut and massachusetts including boston that is a tropical storm watch. it is called post tropical hermine. i don't want to get bogged down with all the specifics about why it's called that. i'm going to tell you what you need to know. 65 mile per hour sustained winds near the center of the circulation which is off shore. it's difficult to see on that particular map. it is still a tropical storm technically in terms of its winds but it will strengthen throughout the course of the day today. potentially reaching hurricane
1:14 am
status even though it's considered extra tropical. remember 24 hours ago? we've been talking about how the system was going to be putting on the brakes very quickly. well, it's done so. in fact, it's all thanks to the high pressure system to the north and to the east. it's stalling out the forward progress of this low pressure. that is why our computer models are having such a difficult time figuring out exactly where the storm will go. it is going to slow down considerably from where it is now and it has the potential to meander westward and if it does so, that's when we start to impact those coastal regions of new england from the delmarva peninsula from new york into long island into boston. that is included within the cone of uncertainty. take note. 75 mile per hour winds by monday evening. here's our concerns. storm surge threat, 3 to 5 feet above the normal high tide across this particular region. so chesapeake bay, delaware bay, long island sound, that area
1:15 am
needs to pay close attention to this. look at how the majority of the rain stays off shore. a few showers off nantucket but it's the winds and coastal erosion that we're concerned about. here's the wind forecast picking up along the coastal areas. if this even edges 50 miles further west, that could cause some serious trouble here. lots of energy associated with the system including major waves and that could perhaps create larger waves right along the coast there. you can see some of our current buoy datas. they have two meter swells. but that could pick up. >> it's bringing back memories because i was in new york during hurricane sandy. >> superstorm sandy. >> the entire completely shut down. then we had the power outage. >> people are heeding the warnings. >> derek van dam, thank you very much.
1:16 am
appreciate that. officials in the state of okay are shutting down 36 wells with toxic wastewater. the government may have played a role, played a part in the magnitude 5.6 earthquake that hit on saturday. the united states geological survey said several powerful quakes happened near oil wells near injection sites. it injured at least one person. oklahoma wasn't just the only place where there was an earthquake. there was another earthquake in the southern philippines. that could change. that was a 5.9 quake. the quake struck at a depth of 12 1/2 kilometers. no tsunami warnings have been issued. coming up next on "cnn newsroom," turkey takes new
1:17 am
military action in syria. how they're opening up an all new line of attack next. plus, donald trump spent the day courting minority voters at a church in detroit, but outside the church he wasn't so welcome. that story coming up next.
1:18 am
1:19 am
1:20 am
1:21 am
want to turn now to the fight against isis. turkey is expanding its military operations in northern syria. take a look here. these images show turkish tanks moving from turkey rolling across the border into syria. all part of a plan to push isis out of nearby villages in syria. the turniks also enlisting the help of nearby rebels. the turks are also planning the construction of a border wall near the kurdish town of kobani. this wall is about four or five days in the making now. the plan is to improve their security by keeping out kurdish
1:22 am
separatists. that is the goal of the turks. not everyone is happy with this. you have angry demonstrators protesting against the wall and one of them have ended up clashing with police. inside turkey the security forces have killed more than 100 kurdish p.k.k. militants in the southeast just on saturday alone. state media says seven turkish soldiers were killed and 21 others wounded. in the meantime, staying in that region in neighboring iraq, syrian forces are trying to pass on an urgent message to those trapped inside isis held towns. they are trying to drop thousands of leaflets in mosul. they say, our goal is to clean your town from isis soon. protect yourself, don't be human shields for the enemy, leave the town immediately.
1:23 am
you don't have enough time. certainly ominous words, but hope they are able to make it out. all right. time for your daily dose of u.s. politics. donald trump, you may have heard, is trying to turn around his unpopularity with african-american voters. the u.s. republican presidential candidate took his campaign to detroit, michigan, on saturday. you see him there on microphone basically he was attending a service at a predominantly black church. he talked about how he would improve the economic prospects in the black community if he were to become president. the question is did he win them over? was it a convincing speech? here's our jeremy diamond with more. >> reporter: donald trump took his outreach to the african-american voters, right to the african-american community here in detroit. donald trump spoke to the great
1:24 am
faith ministries where he abandoned his characteristic brashness in favor of a little bit of a more subdued tone. >> for centuries the african-american church has been the conscience of our country, so true. it's from the pews and pulpits and christian teachings of black churches all across this land that the civil rights movement lifted up its soul and lifted up the soul of our nation. it's from these pews that our nation has been inspired toward a better moral character, a deeper concern for man kind and spirit of charity and unity that binds us all together and we are bound together, and i see that today. this has been an amazing day for me. the african-american faith community has been one of god's greatest gifts to america and to its people. >> reporter: that rhetoric was
1:25 am
very different from the kind that trump has employed on the campaign trail as he's made his outreach largely before predominantly white crowds. donald trump has talked about african-americans saying that they have, quote, nothing to lose in voting for him, saying that they have no jobs, no schools. i also caught up with dr. ben carson who went with donald trump to his childhood home here in detroit and this is how dr. carson talked about donald trump's remarks. >> if you ask him about those comments though and allow him to explain it, you'll see that he says very readily, i have a lot of african-american friends who are very wealthy, who do very well and i know that the majority of black people don't live that way, but the problem is we have a very large percentage of people in our inner cities who are not experiencing any of the benefits of our society and that's a problem for all of us. >> reporter: but here outside the church where donald trump spoke to african-american voters, there were a number of
1:26 am
protestors who spoke up and they said they're not going to forget donald trump's brash words any time soon. >> that was our jeremy diamond reporting there. you heard him mention some of the protesters. let us show you them. take a look here. >> no trump. no trump. no trump. no trump. no trump. >> donald trump spoke to the congregation inside the church. the protesters you see here were outside the church. i think they're saying, no trump, no trump. calling for him to leave the city. trump has been criticized for very divisive rhetoric. that alien it'sates a lot of minorities. authorities in minnesota announced sat they found the remains of this young boy, jacob wetterling. he was 11 when he was abducted in 1989. the star tribune report reports a long time suspect led authorities to the remains.
1:27 am
the suspect was in custody on child pornography charges. his disappearance garnered worldwide attention. it was featured on the cnn series, "the hunt" with john walsh. after news her son's remains were found she told cnn in a text, our hearts are broken. there are no words. time for a quick break here on cnn and we are minutes away, literally minutes away from mother teresa's canonization. she is officially about to be made a saint. we have reports from rome and calcutta in the next few minutes. we'll be back after break. ♪ ♪ comfort food...

1:31 am
welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm zain asher. let's get you caught up on headlines at this hour. world leaders are gathered in hanzhou, china. the american and turkish president said they will be cooperating so that the people behind the failed coup attempt face justice. they want to face a peaceful political transition in syria. you may have heard it is not, not a good weekend to be at the beach in the eastern u.s. hermine is gathering strength as the storm moves north. forecasters expect hermine to
1:32 am
have hurricane stores winds. 40 million people on the east coast are under warning about this particular hurricane. a live look now. 10:30 at the vatican where the canonization mass is happening. thousands of people have gathered in st. peter's square. the roman catholic nun devoted her life and she's about to become a saint less than 20 years after her death. i want to go back to a woman who covered many of a canonization. dena gallagher. explain to us, at what point do we stop saying mother teresa and start saying saint teresa? i presume at any moment now? >> reporter: that's correct, zain. it will be in ten minutes, i should say. what we're looking at right now is the cardinal who is in charge of the congregation for saints.
1:33 am
is he reading out the life of mother teresa, and just after this he will pronounce a formula in latin formally asking pope francis to declare her a saint. then we will hear the beautiful litany of saints and they invoke the blessing of all of the saints in the past on the new saint and pope francis reads out an official declaration in latin declaring her a saint. and at that moment, ten minutes from now, she will be known as saint teresa of calcutta. this is the culmination of many years, as you said, almost 20 years of vatican investigation into her life. a lot of people know about the great works that mother teresa did with the poor, but the vatican has their ono figuresal process, as it were, to declare somebody a saint, including finding two miracles. the two miracles for mother teresa were an indian woman who was said to have been cured of stomach cancer after praying to
1:34 am
mother teresa and a brazilian man who said that his brain infection was cured when he held a picture, a hole will he photo of mother teresa to his head and played to her for his healing. so the vatican after some investigation through doctors and several of those miracles declared those to be the two miracles. it's not just about the miracles, it's about the life of mother teresa, it is a life which in some ways dovetailed with this pontificate. francis in a gesture which we've just learned about in the last few minutes will be offering a pizza party after the ceremony for 1500 poor and homeless here in rome. it will be in the vatican and it's his way of doing a symbolic gesture to the poor, something which is so important to his pontificate and of course was to the life of mother teresa.
1:35 am
>> you can feel the passion of all of those people ready to witness history. we'll check in in ten minutes when the official canonization takes place when she is officially made a saint. meantime i want to go to calcutta, india, where she founded her missionary of charity organization. cnn's monica cappur. she met mother teresa as a child. i was so excited when our producers said you knew mother teresa, that you met her growing up in calcutta. explain to us how you met her, number one. did you know back then that this day would come, that you were in the midst of a woman who would one day be made a saint? >> reporter: zain, good question. you know, it wasn't just me in calcutta, honestly for anybody who lived here during that time, it was quite common for us to
1:36 am
have our lives intertwined with her in some ways simply because she was so accessible. she lived here in the heart of the city. this is her house right behind me, and the doors were always open honestly. anybody could walk in. you could walk in simply to say hello or you could walk in to pray with her no matter what religious background you had. you could ask the nuns to pray for you. she was honestly very, very accessible. i did come here quite a bit because my mother volunteered and continues to volunteer. many times i would tag along with my mother in order to meet mother teresa. did we know back then this day would come? quite honestly, no, only because mother teresa was like any other calcuttan. she was so accessible. we knew she was very accessible but i certainly for one did not
1:37 am
realize that i was the watching the work of a saint. when mother teresa came to india, a young nun following her calling, she came to this bustling city in the east and never left. calcutta became her home. it's where my home is, too. i led a simple, happy childhood her. mother teresa figured prominently in each of those spheres of my life. initially mother teresa was part of the loretta order of nups, the same order that set up this school, my school, and i remember sitting in these very classrooms listening to nuns tell us stories about mother teresa. locals called her simply mother and i often saw mother and her
1:38 am
sisters going about their work helping, caring, feeding the poorest of the poor. back then, i had no idea i was watching history unfold. ♪ ♪ >> she lived in the heart of the city, in the simple room where she later died. visitors from all faiths and all walks of life were always welcome at mother's house. it's where i first met her. she gave me this prayer and then she took my hand in her hands. she had a really firm grip and then she said to me over and over again, god bless you, my child, god bless you. mother adored children, and many local families, including mine, often helped out at her home for abandoned children. when i was a little girl i wrote a poem on mother teresa, and the next time i came here i just tagged along with my mother who
1:39 am
was volunteering here at the children's home and mother teresa met me. she said, come here. i want to show you something. she had taken my poem and framed it. by framing i mean put it in a sheet of plastic and she had stuck it right here. some residents complain she put calcutta on the global map for the wrong reasons, poverty and desperation. but most locals are protective of her. they say they're proud our city produced a saint. very soon she will be saint teresa, and it's a day of great pride and immense joy for the people of calcutta. zain. >> monica, that was a really touching piece, touching, very personal story. thank you so much. i want to go back to the vatican correspondent who's joining us live from st. peter's square.
1:40 am
some of the nuns who knew mother teresa are actually in the audience. explain to us, what must this day be like for them? >> reporter: well, you know, mother teresa has nuns all over the world. one of the places she was most active was in rome. she had a great relationship with john paul ii. they established a house. many of her nuns are here. they come from india. it's quite a beautiful life to add them to the other things that you see here in rome. i think the pope is about to announce the official proclamation. we might want to listen it. he is going to say it in latin. it is the moment when mother teresa will become saint teresa of calcutta. take a listen.

1:43 am
them. that is why st. peter's church are here. they said the bones of saint peter were buried under this church. this is a very important symbolic moment as well in this ceremony, to have a relic of mother teresa here to also be venerated along, of course, with this important declaration of her sainthood. zain. >> delia, i thought when i was listening to pope francis read there, i was wondering to myself, what must this moment be like for him, for the pope, since the pope became pope in 2013, he has really been focused on helping the needy, helping the poor, helping the marginalized much like mother teresa. surely she must be a woman who he can really relate to. >> reporter: yes. well, it's interesting, zain. mother teresa had a very close
1:44 am
relationship with pope paul ii. pope francis never met her. he saw her at a senate of bishops here. he said i watched her moving amongst the bishops. i wouldn't have had liked to have had her as my superior. certainly his pontificate very much follows what her life was about, and that is the priority for the poor. and that is something that pope francis wants to emphasize. that is something that now saint teresa lived for and, of course, both of them following on what jesus talks about in the gospel, that is making the poor a priority and outreach to them. so this is also the year of mercy for pope francis. this is kind of the culminating event of that. the idea of mercy of god towards every body, and kindness to your neighbor and helping each other and so on. these kinds of themes are coming
1:45 am
into play in this ceremony as well. zain? >> delia gallagher, thank you so much. i want to quickly recap the breaking news. it is 10:45 a.m. local time in rome on september 4th. this is the day when we are witnessing history. mother teresa has now officially, officially been made a saint by the catholic church. a process that has been 20 years in the making. they have recognized two miracles that have been attributed to her. we just saw pope francis there in his canonization mass. again, mother teresa is now officially saint teresa.
