2:02 am
he, himself, went after them to ask for help and they did nothing. they had him hospitalized for four days and then they let him go. how are you going to let someone leave a psychological center after four days when you say he is hearing voices, that the cia is telling him to join groups. >> his brother there in puerto rico where authorities have reopened most of the terminals at the airport in fort lauderdale and florida. we are learning more about the victims. boris sanchez has the details. >> reporter: operations are returning to normal here at the ft. lauderdale/hollywood international airport in the aftermath of a gunman opening fire at a baggage claim area killing five and wounding six others. cnn has uslearned the name of those killed. olga walters and tirerr terry a

2:04 am

2:05 am
was confiscated was the one that was used in the attack. the victims were waiting for their luggage. glad they had made it safely to ft. lauderdale. the next second, they were trying to save their lives. sheldon fox, with wsvn spoke to him. >>. >> reporter: the casings were flying all around us, she said. the grandmother of 13 had just landed in ft. lauderdale for a vacation in the sun. she wound up in the hell that was terminal 2's baggage claim. walking among the dead and the wounded without a scratch, her husband was also uninjured. i sat next to her on the plane the woman said and nearly ten hours later, while waiting at port ever glades to find a ride to her hotel, she told 7 news the rest of the story. >> one of the ladies that was killed was my seatmate on the

2:07 am
after learning how hard moscow worked to influence the 2016 presidential race. on saturday, donald trump tweeted, having a good relationship with russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. only stupid people or fools would think that it is bad. we have enough problems around the world without another one. when i am president, russia will respect us far more than they do now. both countries will work together to solve many of the great and pressing problems and issues of the world. paris sabato says trump is venturing far from long-standing u.s. policy. >> it is pretty clear that a sizeable majority of the american population, not to mention a large majority of congress in both parties disagree with the president-elect. >> when you look at russia and the role in the world and its
2:08 am
behavior in its own neighborhood and domestically, it is pretty obvious that vladmir putin and his allies there in russia have very different values than american democracy. what is bizarre and difficult to understand is why the president-elect identifies with vladmir putin more so than any domestic politicians. it is something we have no experience with, not just during the cold war but in all the years since then. >> russian lawmakers and commentators are ridiculing the u.s. intelligence report that found president vladmir putin personally sought to boost donald trump in the u.s. election in november. jill dougherty joins us live from moscow. it seems a good relationship with the u.s. and russia is looming. what might that mean for the
2:09 am
kremlin? >> hannah as i looked at that quote, almost every modern president in recent times has said pretty much the same thing almost verbatim, that we should work with russia on the issue that is trouble the world and we can solve these together. i'll give you an example of where outside of tweets where you have to get the actual details. it gets more complicated. the united states and iran and the united states and russia worked on the iranian nuclear deal. it is something that both countries supported. donald trump criticizes it. now, donald trump will have to, i would think, criticize russia, for supporting the iranian nuclear deal. so nair there is an initial contradiction in how they can work together, how his view of what russia does and whoo that
2:10 am
want to do gets a lot more complicated when you get into details. generalities are fine. you are going to have to look at specifics and specifics in terms of what vladmir putin wants to do for his country. that is his responsibility. he is looking out for russia and donald trump as the president of the united states will have to define how he looks out for the united states interest. >> jill, is there any concern about backlash against russia once donald trump is in the white house, particularly given the fact that although russia says it has nothing to do with hacking, there is so much concern and pressure on donald trump to take action from within his own country. >> there is. i would have to say if you look at and this is not really objective at this point. there are a lot of people hoff been quoted in the media, et cetera, regular americans, who kind of dismiss this and say the
2:11 am
hacking wasn't such a big deal. it maybe didn't have much effect. after all, what was revealed was the truth, et cetera. this is actually what president putin has said. it really doesn't make any difference who hacked. the point is, information was released that helped people make determinations. i think it is going to be more complicated. you do have some people in the united states who are very worried. in fact, people who are in the president's own party who are very worried about this relationship with vladmir putin. you have others that dismiss it. what you are going to get when the specifics come out, what does president-to-be trump want to do with russia. we will know that in a couple of weeks. that's where you will get some division of opinion as to what he is specifically going to do.
2:12 am
>> we will wait to see, jill dougherty, thank you. for further insight, let's bring in scott lucas, a professor of international politics. thanks for being on the program. i want to ask you about your reaction to those tweets. what might a good relationship with russia look like? >> for donald trump, it is one in which he gets to be best friends with vladmir putin afrtle two men create their image of the world. it ignore that is russia and putin have their own interest. they pursueded them by intervening in the election. he is saying we should have a nuclear arms race, which doesn't
2:13 am
seem to fit well with the relationship. this is trump's personal opinion. >> is there an element of you scratch my back, i'll scratch yours, and donald trump has dismissed that russia's influence had any effect on the election victory? is there pay back, i owe you one? >> donald trump has always put an admiration for putin above any consideration of specific issues between the u.s. and russia. remember during the republican primaries, well before the general election, he talked about putin as being this great leader this, admirable man. he did not address the fact that while we do not want to go to war with russia, there are issues of conflict. russ russia russia annexed crimea.
2:14 am
it is really more trump's narcissism. he wants to be like putin. he admires putin rather than any kind of sensible approach to foreign policy. >> so much is being made of donald trump's rhetoric. what do you make of this stupid comment? anyone that effectively disagrees with him is branded as stupid. is this a sign of more to come? >> donald trump has always said anyone that disagrees with him isn't very smart. there is something being missed here. you will notice that trump has shifted. he is no longer talking about the intelligence behind the russian hacking being wrong. remember what he said a few days ago. he is saying, everyone is stupid. let be nice to russia. he is on the defensive over the
2:15 am
allegations in the report released on friday about the extent of russian involvement. >> what might russia have to gain if it is seen they interfered with the election and backed trump? >> from russia got and it is clear from the classified version of the report. they kept hillary clinton out of office. putin personally does not like hillary clinton. in his eyes, clinton and others in the obama administration called him an illegitimate president. if clinton became president, there would be a much tougher u.s. line over the middle east, including syria and a much tougher line over the crisis between the u.s. and crimea. >> thanks for your insight. >> thank you. now, at least 11 are killed
2:16 am

2:20 am
>> reporter: isis has been known for going after civilian targets, whether it is in syria, here in turkey. so while they haven't claimed responsibility, it appears to be their handiwork. they also like to at times do attacks like this and not claim responsibility. they like to sew uncertainty in the conflict in the areas they are targeting, specifically the fsa, which is in control of this area, has been criticized for not providing a lot of security. this is another strike that potentially could be isis. also, there are other groups, kurds control territory to the west of azaz. that could be part of this uncertainty they are trying to sow. this does appear to be an isis
2:21 am
attack. >> how does this play into turkey's overall response and its reaction given it is still combatting isis on so many levels? >> right now, turkey is battling isis on the front lines. turkey for a while has been pushing isis away from their border, trying to degrade their capabilities to find war. isis has been putting up a stiff resistance despite turkey's efforts for weeks trying to capture the city. they haven't been able to. they have sustained heavy casualty ns th casualties in that fighting. turkey like toss say hs to say have degraded that. they have announced isis. this has been a long and bloody
2:22 am
battle. >> we appreciate your reporting live. thank you the president of the ivory coast says the government has reached a deal to end a mutiny by soldiers. however, some of the soldiers have rejected that deal and they are still fighting. they say they were promised a salary bonus for bringing the president to power. they never received that money. >> i confirm my agreement to take into account this. this way of making demands is not appropriate. it tarnishes the image of our country after all of our efforts in economic development and repositioning. i call on all the soldiers to go back to their baracks to allow for these decisions to be executed calmly. >> the soldiers are asking for written proof that they will, indeed, get paid. for the third time in just a week, a prison riot has erupted

2:24 am
know that. >> alonzo thornton says his grandmother lives in the same building month where this was broadcast on facebook. showing a white victim with mental health issues being abused by four black individuals. >> hearing it was in the area, it is appalling. >> reporter: the suspects face a slew of charges including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and hate crimes. the judge denied the suspect's bond friday and scolded them in open court, saying, i am wondering where was the sense of decency that each of you should have had. one family member of the two female suspects apologized outside of court. the suspects showing no emotion when prosecutors described their alleged every move in open court.

2:35 am
their confidence and self-esteem. we had seen them in october immediately after their release. i can attest to the difference in the space of ten weeks. they have been undergoing counseling and therapy and all kind of rehabilitation in abu gentleman, so you could actually see the fruits of those efforts when we saw them just before christmas. it has to be said, the last girl was only discovered some three days ago. we don't know how she is doing. the other two, that did not accompany the 21 home back at christmas. we don't know how they are doing either. all we can attest to is the 2 1 who we were able to see and spend time with. they seem to be doing okay. many of them expressing a desire to go back to school after everything that has happened to them. >> it certainly is remarkable indeed. issa sesay, thank you.

2:38 am
twitter. what has he been saying? >> he is basically saying he is very much looking forward to a visit she is due to make in the spring. he used the word special, which in this country something we often hold dear when it comes to the relationship with the united states. there is some concern that perhaps teresa may wouldn't have the same sort of relationship with donald trump perhaps because the first british relationship he had was with her. there is some concern that that relationship won't be solid but there is some on twitter. a lot about britain's future leaving the european union. one of the assumption was always was that britain would have closer ties with the united states to make up for the loss of the relationship with europe.

2:40 am
famously said it was his favorite state visit. barack obama was always very key to come and meet the queen, whenever he was here. even if it was a state visit. it will be interesting to see how that relationship develops as well. if donald trump can build a relationship with the queen, that might be useful if theresa may can't. >> thanks, max. the pope has baptized 28 newborn babies in the sistine chapel marking the feast of the baptism of the lord. john allen join mees live from rome. explain for us the significance of this event in the christian calendar, john. >> it is a very cold morning here in rome. so cold that the vatican's charity office has positioned its car ns spots around the vatican to allow homeless people to sleep in them during the night to try to fight this cold. it was a very warm atmosphere this morning in the sistine
2:41 am
chapel where pope francis baptized 28 children of vatican employees, including 13 girls and 15 boys. as you say, this is the feast of the baptism of the lord commen roar rati orating that scene where jesus was baptized by john the baptist. for the popes, this is a rare moment where they don't have to be a head of state or media celebrity. they get to play the part of a simple parish priest. for these vatican employees, it is a very spoegs moment too. in many ways, working in the vatican is a sort of tough gig. long hours, you have to work the holidays. the pay isn't that great. this is part of the benefits package. for these families, it is something they are going to remember for the rest of their lives. >> tell us more about the 28 or
2:42 am
two dozen or so very lucky babies. presumably, they can almost call the pontiff their godfather, can they not, after this? >> reporter: they will all have their own godfathers. this is a very small pool of people. these baby vs. no idea what's going on. obviously, as they come of age, their parents will be telling them these stories. the pictures of their baptisms will be on their mantles in their homes for the rest of their lives. they are part of a very select group of people who will be able to in catholic parlance kind of have bragging rights. it wasn't just father so-and-so in such and such a parish but the holy father, the pope, himself. that will stay with them
2:43 am
forever. >> to find their future as well. >> we appreciate it, thanks, john. coming up here on "cnn newsroom," a storm slams the southern u.s. and it is not done yet. we will tell you where it is headed next. so, mr. harris, we have your fingerprints on the safe. a photo of you opening the safe. a post using the hashtag "#justrobbedthesafe" so, what are we supposed to think? switching to geico could save you a bunch of money on car insurance. excellent point. case dismissed. geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance woo! because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer. and my life is basketball.west, but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years. until i learned more about once-daily xarelto®... a latest-generation blood thinner. then i made the switch.
2:44 am
xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective. targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well-managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®,
2:45 am
tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto®. insurance changes? xarelto® has you covered. anything with a screen is a tv. stream 130 live channels.

2:47 am
snow is headed next. meteorologist, eric van dam, has the latest from the cnn weather center. >> we just came across a stat na authorities responded to over 500 accidents in the state of virginia. 650 abandoned vehicles because of the winter storm that moved to the region. can you imagine just driving through some of these treacherous roadways, almost impossible. we have blowing and drifting of snow. you have dangerous conditions and unfortunately the bad roadways have led to two fatalities from this east coast winter storm that moved through. there was another weather-related fatality on the other side of the storm. here is an image coming out of north carolina. some areas getting up to 18 inches of snowfall. the good news is, this storm has moved offshore, off the new england coastline.
2:48 am
in fact, cape cod, we have lifted the blizzard warnings in effect overnight. they are waking up to clear conditions this morning. certainly, plenty of snow on the ground. the big story going forward for the east coast is the drastically colder temperatures that have settled southward, as far south as southern florida, believe it or not. 30 million americans. that is not a mistake. 30 million americans under a windchill advisory as we speak from the appalachians through northern georgia, including atlanta metro where cnn world headquarters is located. as the system dweparts to the east. a weather-related fatality, a large treetopled over on to a 50-year-old woman. the greatest flood threat this area has seen within the past
2:49 am
10-25 years. it is thanks to this atmospheric river. we have used this term a lot. we can trail its original nation all the way into hawaii, believe it or not. so it is picking up a specific amount of moisture and you can see with our high resolution forecast radar, the rain that is overspreaded california and nevada into washington as well as oregon. that is not the only picture here. we have high elevation snowfall measured in feet. look for the inner storm warnings. the potential for an inch of ice accumulation just east of portland, oregon, it is a very active weather scenario shaping up across the united states as we speak. back to you. >> it looks like it. thanks very much for the update, derrick, appreciate it. coming up on "cnn newsroom," the stars will be glittering on sunday night for the 2017 golden globe awards. we'll take a look at the big contenders in film and
