2:00 am
you got a mean case of the detox blues. don't start a war you know you're going to lose. finally you can now find all of netflix in the same place as all your other entertainment. on xfinity x1. save the aleppo children. thousands take to the streets to show solidarity while the people of aleppo wait to be evacuated. >> let them keep it. u.s. president-elect donald trump says to china. company icy rain makes skating rinks of major u.s. highways. the forecast and how much ice is accumulating. we'll get that from sara maginnis. we're live here and in atlanta.
2:01 am
welcome to our viewers around the world and in the united states. welcome to "cnn newsroom." i'm natalie allen. >> we begin with the horror in aleppo. thousands trapped in eastern aleppo. still trapped, hope a new evacuation deal could save their lives. civilians there are starving and afraid. and somehow they're existing in freezing temperatures. reuters is reporting the syrian government has confirmed the evacuation deal but that doesn't mean it will hold. just on friday, the last vac wapgss were suspended. the new deal, well it's more complicated. syria and its ally, iran, want the two towns on the lower left of this map to also be evacuated. those towns are near idlip city and have been besieged by rebels.
2:02 am
across the world people are protesting the atrocities. thousands in turkey near the syrian border demanded the evacuations resume right away. the turkish government plans to set up a camp in syria for those who manage to leave. in berlin, hundreds called on the international community to save aleppo now and to stop the murdering in syria. >> because i think free passage should be given to those trapped in aleppo. i have two sisters trapped in aleppo. i'm here in solidarity for them. >> because i want to show solidarity and be here right now. i want to be here with other people who feel the same way who also can't carry on as normal but rather want to somehow express that this is not normal. that genocide is taking place right now. >> translator: i call on our leaders, they should put away their differences, they should be united and protect the innocent people in aleppo.
2:03 am
>> it's been a long time and nothing has protected them and for the people of aleppo who are still there, this is a life or death situation. a journalist working with channel 4 news was able to video there before the cease-fire came into effect. reporter matt fry explains that their footage is just a glimpse of the absolute hell aleppo has become. we guarantee you what you are about to see is chilling. here it is. >> for a wild that can't find its own. aleppo is a grim stage with an
2:04 am
ever diminishing cast of survivors and these are the last of the last. she's the only adult left of three families who is a part of what was obliterated by a russian or syrian bomb. she comes across a neighbor. the teenage boy, he used to live upstai upstairs. the baby boy he's holding is his little brother, one-month-old. his face is the only restful thing in this bedlam.
2:05 am
but this is the sleep of the dead. ishmael was suffocated in the ruins. and mahmoud doesn't want to let go of his brother's body. aleppo is a play where the children have stopped crying. in the corridor mahmoud is still cradling his baby brother. the boy now acts like the father that he's lost.
2:06 am
a nurse leads in a brother and sister. they go from room to room. we don't know their names and they don't know yet if they're orphans. they left their father in the rubble and they're looking for their mother. she sees proof of the news that she had feared most. why have you left me she calls out to the daughter that she describes as her rock. knowing that this question in this place has no real answer. and in another room, brother and
2:07 am
sister are still waiting for news of their mother. on another hospital bed blanketed with dust. exhausted beyond words by a life beyond description. >> very, very, very true words there at the end of his report. what a chilling story. we want to remind our viewers, that's just one aftermath of one bombing. they've been hit repeatedly. we're joined by the turkish syrian border. that story among others we've seen. chilling but nothing has stopped the suffering. nothing. what is the latest on the ground on the evacuations and why they've been stalled. >> reporter: natalie, after a slow-moving weekend and a difficult, long wait in the rebel held part of eastern aleppo, there's finally cause for optimism. we got in touch with a red cross
2:08 am
spokesperson. he's very optimistic that the evacuations will continue today, if not today then perhaps as soon as this morning. they tell us that the infamous green buses that we've seen that have been shuttling fighters and civilians out of the rebel held part of aleppo, those are on the ground and the red cross is on the ground. they're waiting for -- from the syrian army on the ground, they're waiting for the security guarantees so they can start helping facilitate the transfers. once again, the red cross is hopeful that the vak wagss will resume today. >> do you know how flex it is to get the security guarantees? is there a lot of different factions here in that area? >> reporter: yeah. any time we talk about what's happening on the ground, it tends to be complicated. i'll try to simplify it.
2:09 am
when it started, it was simple. it was about the civilians and the wounded and some rebel fighters out of the rebel held fighters into the aleppo countryside. straightforward operation. over the weekend, this evolved into what's become a transfer. that's because there are islamist rebels that have laid siege to shiite villages for more than a year and a half. as part of the deal, some of the pro assad militias said if they're evacuated from rebel held areas we need to get the civilians evacuated as well. it's no longer a stray evacuation, it now effectively becomes a transfer. when there is a transfer, we need more checkpoints on the ground. there have to be assurances to make sure they're simultaneously. you need guarantees from the different fighting groups that none of them will break in agreement. as we've seen as early as friday, all it takes is one rogue element to start firing into the air or start taking on measures into their own hands.
2:10 am
so this is a very fragile situation on the ground. again, the red cross is hopeful that we'll start to see the vac wapgss resume once again today. >> we hope so and we're about to talk to them right now. mohammed for us there on the border. the national committee from the red cross joins us via skype from amman, jordan. our reporter there saying that your agency is optimistic about resumption of evacuations. can you tell us about that. >> yes, indeed. we hope that the evacuations will resume today. we only have the choice or the option to remain optimistic at this stage for the fate of the people and the civilians who have suffered and continue to suffer in the eastern portions of the city. what is very important today is to be able to evacuate the remaining people who wish to leave the quarters of the city
2:11 am
to western rural aleppo. we have been able to successfully transfer over 10,000 civilians from the eastern quarters of city in the past few days when the agreement was respected by all parties. and moreover, we were able to evacuate hundreds of severely wounded civilians through the eastern -- sorry. through the western aleppo countryside. what we hope for today is that the evacuations resume, that the agreement is respected and we have dozens of ambulances ready to transfer the second wounded to the rural countryside of aleppo. moreover, we have over 100 volunteers from the syrian -- in addition to others from the red cross staff waiting to accompany the buses through their journey to the rural countryside in aleppo. >> i'm sure it's been frustrating to sit and wait to do work that your agency is
2:12 am
very, very good at. what are they telling you about what they're seeing with the people coming out and how many people do you think are left inside? any idea? >> no one has the exact figure yet about how many people remain in the eastern quarters of the city. previously a number was between 40,000 to 50,000. media is talking about that number. reporters are talking about that number. nobody really knows. what's important today is to value each human life. one human life is equal to ten to 50,000 human lives. it doesn't matter. what matters is whoever wants to get out will get out, we transfer all the people, all the 1i68 civilians to safer areas where they can be warm and sheltered. where they can be provided with clean water, food and most
2:13 am
importantly, safety for their lives. whatever remains from the civilians inside the city we must and we hope, again, that agreement would respected so that we can resume today in the coming hours as soon as possible. they can no longer wait. so that we can resume to transfer, evacuate the people outside of the very bad living conditions that they are enduring at the moment. >> at the moment and my goodness, look what they have been through for months and months and months. thank you for the work you're doing and please let us know as soon as those evacuations, with the international red cross. thank you so much for what you're doing. if you would like to help syria in all of this horror, cnn has a list of aid organizations helping families escape the

2:17 am
welcome back. international waters will be returned. the u.s. says the drone similar to the one you see here was unlawfully snatched by china's navy in the south china sea. for more about it matt rivers is in beijing. >> closeup encounters like this situation between the chinese and u.s. navies are rare and the fact that i china actually took possession of u.s. naval equipment is rarer still. now, the chinese ministry of defense released a statement late saturday evening local time saying that the reason they took the drone out of the water was understood to protect navigational and personnel safety of passing ships. while that might sound like an innocuous enough reason for taking the drone out of water,
2:18 am
the fact remains that this move by the chinese makes the u.s./chinese military relationship that much more tense. >> the u.s. -- an unarmed military research ship was 50 miles off the filipino coast where the navy was conducting research using two underwater drones. officials said the research was legal under international law. it was set to bring them back on board when officials say a chinese naval ship trailing the bowditch launched a small boat which stole one of the ocean gliders. the defense department said it immediately made contact to ask for it back but the chinese ship failed away. friday they asked again. spokesman captain jeff davis told reporters it is ours and we would like it back and like this not to happen again. the chinese defense ministry spochbded late saturday saying that the ship initially didn't know what the drone was and seized it for navigational safety reasons. they went on to say, "upon
2:19 am
confirming that the device was a u.s. underwater drone, the chinese side decided to transfer it to the u.s. side in an appropriate manner." china and the united states have been communicating about this process. it is incompetent inappropriate and unhelpful that the u.s. yun lat -- hyped the issue. it comes at a time with tensions. an action the u.s. calls illegal. president-elect trump has made beijing angry twice in the last two weeks first taking a call from taiwan's president and questioning the legitimacy of the one china policy a decades old diplomatic staple of u.s. china relations. in that same statement from the ministry of defense outlining the reasoning for taking the drone out of the water, chinese officials were quick to include a paragraph talking about the united states have been frequently deploying ships and aircraft to conduct close-in surveillance and military
2:20 am
surveys in waters facing china. the chinese have said the research vessels like bowditch have been spying on chinese activity in the south china sea. what most experts who tell you when the chinese dook the drone out of the water, they likely knew they would be sending a message to the united states. that message being, they are not happy with u.s. naval operations in that part of the south china sea. back to you. and coming up, china will have to deal with donald trump and he was quick to weigh if on china's seizure of drone. the u.s. president-elect took to twitter early saturday and called the action unprecedented. later, he tweeted, we should tell china we don't want the drone they stole back. let them keep it. trump wrapped up his thank you tour with a rally in mobile, alabama. trump told the large crowd of supporters that returning to the deep south was a homecoming of sorts. cnn's ryan nobles was there. >> donald trump making good on a
2:21 am
campaign promise. returning here to mobile, alabama, the site of one of his first major campaign rallies. it was in august of 2015 that trump brought out a crowd of some 30,000 people. on saturday, he told a similar-sized crowd that this is where it all began. >> thank you very much. this is where it all began. incredible rally we had. and people came out and it was like this was packed and incredible. people said something is going on there. that was the beginning, wasn't it? that was the beginning. and if you remember, even though you don't have to vote for me, maybe four years we'll take a look, right? you know what, i said i'm coming back to see you in alabama. right? >> trump gave the crowd a history lesson. detailing state by state his victory on election night. what trump didn't do is wade
2:22 am
into the complex policy issues that await him. he didn't mention china or russia despite it becoming a growing situation for the incoming trump administration. instead, the president-elect focused on many campaign promises, specifically how he plans to help the american economy. he did go off script talking about michelle obama talking about an interview she gave to oprah winfrey where she suggested a lot of the country p lacks hope. >> michelle obama said there's no hope. but i assume she was talking about the past, not the future. i'm telling you, we have tremendous hope. and we have tremendous promise and tremendous potential. we are going to be so successful
2:23 am
as a country again. we're going to be amazing. i actually think she made that statement, not meaning it the way it came out. i really do. i met with president obama and michelle obama in the white house, my wife was there. she could not have been nicer. i honestly believe she met that statement in a different way than it came out. i believe there is tremendous hope and beyond hope, we have such potential. >> trump now heads to his estate in palm beach, florida, where he plans to spend the christmas holiday with his family. he's not expected to make any news. but there's a chance we could learn more about appointments to his administration in the coming weeks. ryan nobles, cnn, mobile, alabama. severe smog in china has forced beijing to issue a red alert. the most serious weather alert in the capital. this is beijing's first red alert of year. you can see why. the smog has affected about 1/9
2:24 am
of china's total land area. it's expected to last through wednesday. back in the u.s., freezing rain and black ice are making road travel dangerous through a large part of the united states. look at this. this is a 55-car pileup in baltimore, maryland. the u.s. is getting hit with extremely cold temps, coupled with below zero windchill. multivehicle crashes killed at least six people in three states. let's get more on the conditions from karen maginnis. you were telling us earlier, karen, black ice is so dangerous. >> yes. we have a very healthy fear of black ice. you come up on it and you hit your brakes because you realize you're sliding. that's one of the worst things to do. but what happens is the road looks slick. it almost looks slick from maybe light precipitation. but in fact, it is frozen. if you are hitting your brakes
2:25 am
and traffic stops suddenly, you are going to be unable to stop. there were at least three fatalities. they had about 15 people reported injuries there. we had accidents, chain reaction car accidents in oklahoma and indiana. all across the ohio river valley. multiple, multiple car crashes. here are some of the current temperatures and the windchill factors. minot, north dakota. minus 24. that's not a windchill. that's actual outside wind temperature. minus 34 is the windchill factor. i looked at fargo, north dakota. over the last three days, the warmest temperature in fargo was 5. 5 degrees above zero. right now, the windchill temperatures are running between 30 and 40 degrees below zero. it has been like this for days now. the arctic air is plunging well to the south. look at the windchill in omaha.
2:26 am
minus 31 degrees. cedar rapids at 38. this is not just bone chilling. this is potentially deadly. so if you have exposed skin within a few minutes' time, it can freeze and that could be deadly. we've got ice in nashville. nashville didn't set a record. but nashville was 73 degrees. the afternoon. but now in nashville, there is freezing rain. so drive carefully. this is how it looks in brooklyn, new york. we saw a couple of inches of snowfall there. not going to last. temperatures are warming ahead of the frontal system. natalie, you and i have talked about the nfl game. the football game in chicago. now, here is zero. you go back through time. the worst start in nfl football game, 1967. the ice bowl. that's why this one is going to be fascinating to watch. coming up for tomorrow.
2:27 am
>> in front of my fire. >> the folks going to that game. >> they're crazy. ahead here, a warning to donald trump about dealing with vladimir putin from people who know the risk of opposing the russian leader. that's ahead. are my teeth yellow? have you tried the tissue test? ugh yellow. what do you use? crest whitestrps. crest 3d whitestrips whiten 25 times better than a leading whitening toothpaste i passed the tissue test. oh yeah. crest whitestrips are the way to whiten.

stories. it's unclear when thousands of civilians trapped in freezing temperatures will be evacuated from eastern aleppo. the red cross says they hope the evacuations will resume in a few hours. syrian government has confirmed the new evacuation deal. that, according to reuters. the last evacuations were suspended on friday. both china and the u.s. say an american underwater drone seized by china in international waters will be returned. the drone similar to the one seen here was grabbed by the chinese navy in the south china sea earlier this week. the u.s. says the drone was measuring ocean conditions. u.s. president-elect donald trump returned to mobile, alabama at a final stop on his whirlwind thank you tour. he told the crowd that mobile was important to him because his presidential campaign first took hold there in 2015. the us president-elect never
2:32 am
shy about -- he's been quiet about accusations of russian hacking during the campaign. sean spicer told cnn michael smerconish that donald trump is biding his time until the naugs inauguration. >> i think to presume he would do anything is premature. he's not president yet. president obama has every right to carry out the duties he sees fit based on the information he has through the rest of his term. >> president obama has promised a response to hacking but he has not said when or how. ultimately, it will fall on trump's shoulders. those who know vladimir putin warn trump should be wary of the russian leader. nic robertson has that from london. >> when the soviet union collapsed, the world thought russia would be a different place. and for a decade under president yeltsin it was.
2:33 am
>> they had free press, they had a democracy and they had civil society. the problem is that they didn't have any laws and they didn't have any rules. >> bill browder, an investment banker was there in russia making millions amidst the chaos. then putin came to power. a few years later he clashed with browder. >> i pointed out that putin and the people around him have stolen an enormous amount of money from the russian people and have covered it up. >> browder's businesses were raided. one of his whistle blowing lawyers was thrown in jail. brutalized and died there many months later. putin rejects every accusation browder makes. he's barred him from russia for the past decade. >> at this point, many people consider me to be putin's number one foreign enemy. as such, my life is at risk. >> he is right to be worried. putin's critics get silenced.
2:34 am
>> he has a proven record of murder for start. either directly or indirectly encouraged. >> sir andrew wood was britain's ambassador to russia at the same time browder was making his millions. he dismisses putin's denials of any influence in the deaths. >> when putin came to power, his main feat was russia should be a great power. he chose not economic reform and political progress. but a relax into what a amounts to sort of form of narcissistic xenophobia. >> in foreign policy, that's intervention and ukraine and syria. providing overnight popularity for putin at the price of ruinous long-term economic sanctions. pretty soon this will be on
2:35 am
president-elect donald trump's plate. >> he wants to be seen as a deal maker and winner. putin has made miss wish list very clear. he wants ukraine, he wants sanctions lifted and he wants to be left alone in syria. >> problem is, putin's idea of deal making not much of a deal. >> what he's offering i don't think is anything at all. probably nice words perhaps. >> even his words aren't worth much. >> putin doesn't keep to his word. putin always betrays deals. he takes what's offered and tries to take more in the future. that's probably won't play that well with trump who will feel ripped off. >> what are his options going to be then? >> to become probably much tougher than any other u.s. head of state before him towards russia. >> i think at least for a period it will be very much in putin's interests to take things relatively calmly. >> the alternative could be deeply troubling. two powerful men, two big egos.
2:36 am
>> well, i can imagine that we'll end up in a position where both these guys will be thumping their chests and staring each other down. >> 25 years of post cold war diplomacy could be about to face their biggest test yet. nic robertson, cnn, london. we've been talking about aleppo. our top story a lot the past two hours. people trying to evacuate to safety. there's another area we're watching as well. thousands of iraqis fled isis in mosul. their futures are hang not guilty the balance. refugee camps are filled to capacity and only provide basic essentials. as ben wedeman reports, a life of uncertainty for now is better than what they've had. >> reporter: out of the hell at mosul under fire and into the --

2:38 am
the camp provides much needed safety, shelter, food, water and basic health care but little else. there is no school for the children, no organized activities, just a monotonous expanse of tense gravel and mud. good dark clouds overhead. been here almost a month and a half. the iraqi military drove isis out of this neighborhood of saah ma. but isis mortar round and rockets still slam into the area. his wife tells me she and her five children can put up with the discomfort of camp life. >> translator: it's cold in the tent but we'll hang on, she says. it's better here than in mosul with isis. for others, this bleak existence has taken its toll when someone shows up with a bag of jackets, a mad scramble ensues.
2:39 am
many arrive with the clothing on their backs and every extra scrap is fighting for. cnn, outside mosul. >> how much more can they take? my goodness. turkish military officials held a ceremony for 13 soldiers -- soldiers were traveling in a bus saturday when a car bomb exploded nearby. the coffins are being flown for burial. dozens of people were wounded in the blast. police arrested 15 people. saturday's attack is the latest in a string of deadly bombings in turkey this year. the last just last weekend. a suicide attack at a military base in southern yemen killed at least 41 soldiers. the bomber attacked the base in aden sunday morning as soldiers lined up to get their paychecks. two yemeni security officials say the attacker got on to the base by dressing as a soldier.
