allegations of civilian casualties. they are investigating whether civilians were killed in air strikes in western mosul last week. hong kong's new chief executive makes history and promise toss heal her divided city. live from hong kong, welcome to our viewers in the united
2:01 am
states and around the world. i'm ivan watson and "cnn newsroom" starts right now. we are getting grim images out of iraq's second largest city where the fight against isis is intense and civilians have been fleeing in panic. the u.s. military and iraq's defense ministry are looking into whether u.s.-led air strikes targeting isis may have killed iraqi civilians in western mosul this month. some of the victims are said to be women and children. the pentagon confirms that war planes struck isis fighters in one raid on march 17th. a u.s. defense official tells cnn it seems civilians were killed and injured. although, he adds, it is still unclear exactly what happened. cnn's ian lee is following all of this for us and joins us from cairo, egypt. it is good to see you, ian.
2:02 am
it is iraqi forces that are on the ground, ian, fighting and they are being supported by u.s. war planes and they are presumably carrying out air strikes to help protect the iraqi forces on the ground but now it appears that something went terribly, terribly wrong. what more can you tell us? >> reporter: that's right, ivan. there is close coordination between iraqi forces on the ground and the coalition forces in the air helping them target different buildings, iraqi forces calling in these air strikes. we're getting some new information from the joint operation command, the iraqi command, painting a bit of a different picture to what happened on that day where an explosion or multiple explosions property edly kill reportedly killed hundreds of civilians. they are saying that isis had vehicle-born explosive devices,
2:03 am
usually truck bombs. they were by isis in the neighborhood on that day. they are saying from what they are hearing from civilians is that isis detonated these trucks to slow the advance of ground forces of iraqi forces. they are also saying that civilians are telling them they are being used as human shields and being brought into this area. their houses are boobytrapped. anything to slow down iraqi forces. none of the information has been independently verified. this is what we are hear frg civilians fleeing mosul. take a listen. >> reporter: we're being fired on. an islamic state would not let the families out. we went out in the middle of the night. people were killed. thank god we managed to escape. we were fired upon from the coalition air force. the snipers go to the top of
2:04 am
builds that have families and the air force strikes these buildings killing them and everyone in the house. >> now, ivan, both iraqi and u.s. military officials say that this isn't going to slow down the operation despite the calls from some local provencial leaders to do so. the u.s. military also reiterating that their goal is zero civilian casualties. we know that is nearly impossible. >> that's been one of the enormous challenges of trying to uproot isis from mosul. it is a densely populated city with hundreds of thousands of civilians there. you can't just simply flatten the place, because you will hurt so many innocent people. it is hard to imagine a potentially worse or more horrific situation for the civilians trapped in the middle of this awful and grinding urban conflict, ian.
2:05 am
>> that's right. specially when you look at where they are fighting right now in western mosul in the old city. this is an area with old buildings, narrow alleyways, densely populated. any large explosion runs the risk of killing a large number of civilians. iraqi federal police saying they had to squiwitch up their tacti because they wanted to minimize civilian casualties. they are using more snipers and drones and they are still using mortars and aren't use can them as much or as many mechanized units. a lot of their fighters are now on foot. also, expect fewer air strikes in this area because of the risk of collateral damage is just so high. they are intent on pushing isis out of this area. although, isis digging in and not afraid to use civilians as human shields.
2:06 am
ivan? >> just a horrible, horrible situation there. >> to ian lee, live from cairo, thanks for bringing us up to date. los angeles reporter, molly hennessy-fiske, she was at the scene and spoke with my c colleague earlier about what she saw there. >> reporter: there were some areas where homes were completely destroyed and rubble. we had to pick our way through. we could see parts of people still stuck under the rubble and there were some remains that were wrapped in blankets. most of them that they had retrieved they put in body bags in these blue body bags and they unzipped some of those because they wanted to show us some of the victims were women, including at least one pregnant woman and children. there were some babies as well. >> how many people do they
2:07 am
believe were killed on that occasion? >> those numbers vary. the civil defense people we talked to said they thought it was about 200. they had retrieved more than 100 remains by yesterday. and myself and a photographer from the "l.a. times" who were there, we roamed around and we saw about 50. there were some other photographers there they saw, about the same number of remains. it was very crowded streets. there were a lot of families with children and they told me islamic state militants had forced more people into the area and that they had been sheltering inside the homes when the incident happened. >> so in your assessment, at least 50 people were killed. that's a very significant death toll. tell us more about what the residents described about the area and what was happening at
2:08 am
the time when the air raids took place. >> well, they had been living under islamic state. there had been some militants in the area. they said it was a small group. they said the fighters had brought what appeared to be a truck with explosives, what they called suicide car to the area and parked it there days before and that when some militants had returned, part of the strike happening in the evening on that friday, that there had been one on top of a roof, a sniper, and then some in the street. so they had stayed inside of their houses, because they felt threatened. they saw them shooting up at the aircraft. then this explosion happened. some of the people i talked to said that the houses just started coming.
2:09 am
the build rs startings started down on them. some saw the truck explode. it wasn't cloear why that was. a good number of them were destroyed. in u.s. politics, the trump administration says it has not given up on getting rid of obamacare. mike pence says the issue will be fought again when conditions in congress are more favorable. >> the president and i are grateful for speaker, paul ryan, and all the house republicans who stood with us in this effort to begin the end of obamacare. as we all learned yesterday, congress just wasn't ready. you saw it. with 100% of house democrats,
2:10 am
every single one and handful of republicans standing in the way of president trump's plan to repeal and replace obamacare. u.s. president, donald trump, shook off his first legislative loss. on saturday, he tweeted. obamacare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great health care plan for the people. do not worry. we get the latest from cnn's athena jones. >> reporter: the white house is indicating that tax reform will come next. one big question, what lessons were learned by the failure of this repeal effort? one senior administration official told me going forward we can expect to see the white house get more engaged on the front end when it comes to legislation, shaping the language and the strategy. the other big question is how the president's own sales pitch might shift. the white house has been saying
2:11 am
in recent day that is the president was all in on this bill, that he took this personally, that he was very much involved in having face to face meetings with members of the republican congress and phone calls from early in the morning until late at night. if you talk to members of the republican caucus. they indicate that some of the president's sales tactics might be a bit lacking. he didn't offer a strong enough rational for why members should vote yes on this bill, other than a political one. the idea of giving him a legislative victory in his first 100 days. perhaps even more important here, is many members sggot the sense the president did not have a good grasp of the details of this bill. the nitty-grchitty policy bills. dana bash report that is two sources tell her during a
2:12 am
freedom caucus meeting, the conservative wing of the house caucus, one of the members brought up a concern about one of the policy areas. the president said, forget about the little stuff. in another mightieeting with moe members of the house, one congressman told the president he was a no and the press replie president replied why am i even talking to you. he tells my colleague, jim acosta, the bottom line is that the president didn't care or particularly know about health care. if you are going to be a great negotiator, you have to know about the subject matter p. so a cording to some members of the president's own party, he might need to work on his deal-making skills when it comes to dealing with capitol hill. back to you.
2:13 am
to get some insight, i am joined by brian klaus, the author of "the despot accomplice." but for now let's focus on u.s. politics, brian. with trump's loss of the health care legislation, he is trying to put the blame squarely on the democrats. is that an argument that will work among his supporters? >> i don't think so. the republicans remember voted 60 different times while president obama was in office to repeal obamacare. when it came to governing, they did nothing. they have continually said the democrats are to blame. i think that's a political mistake to continually blame it. the bill was polling at 17% support.
2:14 am
americans were not behind it. the more the white house reminds people that the democrats derailed unpopular legislation, the more that will play into the hands of democrats going into the 2018 mid-terms. >> brian, this is within the first 100 days of president trump's administration. what this is likely to do to his very ambitious agenda going forward? >> it is a huge problem for him. the white house did not back away from claims that trump was the grand deal-maker, the closer. sean spicer used those terms repeatedly. there was no deals and no close. a lot of people are saying we will take care of tax reform and infrastructure. those are extremely complicated. tax reform is extremely con den chun. the republicans have to face they have a divide in their caucus. the far right does not see remotely eye to eye with the republican moderates, many of
2:15 am
whom are worried about re-election in 2018. some of whom were in districts that hillary clinton won. they are not going to come together on all of these issues. the health care bill is a canary in a coal mine for a republican agenda that has to grasp the reality that there is a stark divide in their caucus. they have to decide, can we go together on issues that are bread and butter issues for conservatives, try to get some easy wins that are not tax reforms or infrastructure or try to work with moderate democrats and have bipartisan consensus to pass legislation. >> what about health care in general. here, you have the u.s. president warning about obamacare, at fordable care act blowing up. is there going to be some crisis for millions of americans who rely on the affordable care act for their health care? >> absolutely. i think this tweet that he sent in the aftermath of trump care's demise was really reckless to,
2:16 am
say your health care is going to explode and follow it up 100 characters later with do not worry is a contradictory message. a leader needs to take responsibility for the fact that this is really important to a lot of americans. it is something that takes a lot of time. it is something that takes a lot of consideration. to be able to fix it and get it right, it is did i have. trump needs to come together with democrats and republicans and say, look, obamacare isn't perfect. it takes some technocratic expertise, by trump nids to learn b -- needs to learn it but he can. it takes a little bit of sobriety and pause but say let's figure it out and let's get it right. there are problems with obamacare but they can be fixed. >> brian klaus from the london school of economics, thanks for your insight. >> thanks for having me. now, let's move to the u.s.
2:17 am
state of ohio where we are following a disturbing story. police in cincinnati say at least one person is dead and 14 wounded at a mass shooting at a nightclub. according to police, several victims are in surgery with life-threatening injuries. the club has been identified as cameo on the city's east side. police do not have any suspects but are interviews witnesses. it is packed with hundreds of people, about four hours ago. the police chief said the scene inside was chaotic. a police spokesman said, there is no reason to suspect terrorism at this time. we will, of course, keep you updated as more details become available. now, to hong kong. a story taking place here. the city has a new leader. why some say the election was hardly democratic. plus, cnn has been talking to a british counter terrorism official about wednesday's atk in london.

welcome back. a an election committee in hong kong has elected carrie lam. she addressed some of the concerns that are leading prodemocracy activists to protest her election. >> hong kong, our home, is suffering from quite a serious divisiveness and has accumulated a lot of frustrations. my priority will be to heal the divide and to ease the frustrations and to unite our society to move forward. >> our christie lou stout joins us from the convention center where the ballots were cast. good to see you, christie. >> reporter: good to see you, ivan. this is where the announcement
2:22 am
was made at hong kong election headquarters. when it was announced the new leader was carrie lam, there were cheer ns ts in the public viewing area. according to the public opinion polls, she is not the people's choice. she is the choice of the nearly 1200 member election committee said to be broadly based on the hong kong people but packed with pro-business and pro-beijing interests. there has been a lot of criticism about the makeup of the committee and the process of how the vote went down today, including from a professor at hong kong university. he is also a member of the election committee himself. hear what had he to say. >> the result tells the world that the election is not a yen win one at all but an appointment by beijing. >> he was a member of the
2:23 am
election committee calling this nonelection not even a selection but an appointment by beijing. i should add that carrie lam, now elected as the new chief executive of hong kong has to be approved by beijing. this is a process criticized in 2014 in the pro democracy umbrella movement protest. they wanted to change the system. they wanted something called universal sufficient raj, one person, one vote. that was not granted. we saw a number of pro-democracy activists out today as the votes are being counted. people like nathan law or joshua wong, the teenage activists. we witnessed him getting caught up in scuffles with the police. dealing with the continual demand is one of the many challenges ahead for hong kong's new leader. she acknowledges challenges in the speech she gave after the announcement was made. a number of challenges ahead for the new leader of hong kong. a major financial home to some 7
2:24 am
million people who really had no say in electing their new leader. ivan? >> it is really striking, christie, when you consider the fact she got 777 votes to get this job out of a population of some 7 million. it doesn't make for much of an electoral mandate. christie lou stout live from the election campaign center. thanks very much, christie. >> chances of severe weather continue across the united states and meteorologist, derek van dam, joins us with the latest. what can you tell us, derrick? >> ivan, this is all part of a multi-day severe weather event that's taking place across the u.s.? take a look at a confirmed ef-2 tornado, snapping trees and moving mobile homes off of their foundation and knocking out power to thousands.
2:25 am
that storm system is pretty much long gone. it will sftill bring a few thunderstorms across the appalachians. we are going to focus our attentions across the panhandle of oklahoma and texas. a wet sunday morning from grand rapids southward. the i-75 corridor will be tricky. it is not weather from that storm system we will be concerned with. it is near oklahoma where we have an enhanced chance of severe weather once again today. this is starting the process as low pressures continue to eject right off the plains and start to see that severe weather setup as we have two different air masses colliding with each other. damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. we are seeing this movement from sunday into monday to start off the workweek. birmingham to nashville, louisville, st. louis, little rock and shreveport, louisiana,

2:27 am
debbie. that could be the worst to impact the area. >> i would not want to be caught in those storms. derrick van dak, thank you very much for that update. was the london attacker a lone wolf? a british counter terrorism official has been talking to cnn. we will have that after the break. this is not a screensaver. this is the destruction of a cancer cell by the body's own immune system, thanks to medicine that didn't exist until now. and today can save your life. ♪ ♪

i'm ivan watson, the headlines this hour. a mass shooting at a nightclub in cincinnati, ohio, has left one dead and 14 wounded. no suspects are in custody at this time. several of the wounded are undergoing surgery with life threatening injuries. we'll keep you updated as more information becomes available. an election committee has selected carrie lam as hong kong's new leader. pro-democracy activists are protesting. she is seen as beijing's choice for the job and defeated the candidate that had more popular support. she is the first woman to be selected as hong kang's chief executive. >> the trump administration says they have not given be up on trying to appeal obamacare. u.s. vice-president, mike pence, said the issue will be fought again when conditions in congress are more favorable to passage of a new law.
2:32 am
the u.s. military and iraqi government are investigating coalition air strikes to determine if civilians were killed excellently. they are looking into a bombing raid on march 17th that targeted isis. there are allegations women and children died. iraq's defense ministry is also probing several other coalition air strikes in mosul this month. joining me now to help explain this is retired lieutenant rick francona. rick, good to see you. the reports are certainly disturbing if it is possible that as many as 200 civilians could have been killed in one or more air strikes in mosul. wasn't this part of the initial concern when the operation began, to try to evict isis from this densely populated city? isn't that one of the major challenges that u.s. and iraqi forces had. how do you push a militant group out of a place with tens,
2:33 am
hundreds of thousands of civilian resident sns. >> we knew this was going to be a problem. as isis was bottled up into the densely populated area, any use of air or artillery was going to cause civilian casualties. the objective is to minimize the risk. when you are dropping high explosives into a very compact area, this is what happens. the problem is, knowing what's underunderneath where you are striking. this is an intelligence problem and fast-moving problem and a fluid problem. when these targets pop up and an iraqi unit on the ground calls for air support. if the target is a validated target, it meets all the requirements. i think that's what has happened. is there a systemic problem in how we are calling these air strikes? there seems to be some difference of opinion at least
2:34 am
in the facts an the reporting on this from the iraqi government and the u.s. military central command about which days there may have been air strikes carried out that could have resulted in civilian deaths. can you make sense of how many of these incidents could have taken place that could have led to such a high number of civilians killed. >> you try and document as best you can, when bullets are flying, bombs are dropping, people are moving, shots are being fired. a lot of the paperwork and record-keeping isn't up to date. it takes time to go back and get all that correctly. these investigations will sort this out. it is a painsstaking progress. a lot of the evidence we will need will be gone when they
2:35 am
secure the area. >> let's get back to the battlefield in mosul. where does the fight stand in this bloody and deadly effort to try to uproot isis from that northern iraqi city. they are being compacted. that's why you see such vicious fighting. they are going to have to surrender or die. they are going to take as many civilians as they can with them. that's why we are seeing this uptick in civilian violence. iraqis have said, let's take a break and see what happens. the only problem with taking a break, we know what's going to happen. isis is going to rearm, regroup, reposition their force. they are trying to do the right thing by taking a pause, let's calm down and re-assess our procedures and see if we can stop as many civilian casualties as we can. the leader of the nineveh council has asked that all operations cease until we can
2:36 am
guarantee the security of the civilian population. that's impossible in this fast-moving area. >> calls for a pause. rick francona, thank you very much for your insight. >> good to be with you. in london, police have released all but one of the people connected with wednesday's attack outside parliament. investigators do not currently see a direct isis hand in wednesday's attack. a british counter terrorism official tells cnn no evidence has emerged to show halid mehsud was connected with the terrorist group. >> reporter: they say they believe he was working alone whether he plowed his car into a group and went on to stab police. although isis may have claimed mehsud was works as one of its
2:37 am
soldiers, there is a lot of skepticism surrounding that claim. largely to the fact that a video hasn't emerged pledging allegiance to the group and contrast to what we saw in the aftermath of similar attacks. we do know he is active on the encrypted, what's that messaging service two minutes before mounting the pavement on the bridge. we know from the embassy on saudi arabia and london that he had visited the community to teach english between 2005 and 2006 and 2008 and 2009. it is his last visit in 2015 that's probably also going to be of more interest to authorities. he visited on a religious pilgrimage visa finding out who he was in contact will be crucial to piecing together the parts of the puz that will see this british-born convert to

few hours, the suspect is now in custody. law enforcement officials say they were able to get him off the bus without firing any shots and that the suspect cooperated with police. now, the strip has reopened to pedestrian traffic and vehicular traffic after being closed for several hours during this incident. we do know, however, that one person lost their life and another person injured. in light of recent terrorist attacks in europe, people called into question if this was terror related. we know it was not terror related nor related to an earlier incident that occurred at bellagio hotel. one of the men wearing a pig mask. in that incident, no shots were fired, nobody injured. after a tense few hours, things are finally starting to get back to normal. >> now, to the after can continent where health workers are prepare tog varies sin nate more than 100 million children against polio across west and

vaccinators. . . welcome back to cnn, broadcasting live from hong kong. european leaders gathered in italy's capital to mark 60 years since the signing of the treaty of rome. it led to the creation of the e.u. but not everyone celebrated. demonstrations for and against the bloc broke out across europe. our contributor filed this report earlier from rome. >> reporter: there were six separate demonstration ns rome today. british people, scottish people, lamenting the fact they were leaving the european union. there were europeans lamenting the fact that there is a european union. there were migrants and refugees demonstrating against closed boreds and a far right demonstrating against migrants and refugees. we don't have the exact number. the security force have been in
2:45 am
force all year long trying to keep order as the day goes on. >> for more, my colleague spoke earlier with dominic thomas, the chair of the department of french at the university of california, los angeles. he asked him about the health of the e.u. >> it's a health bill. i think it is a report card. if we are going to look at a report card, we have to start off by asking ourselves whar, w was the european union going to be doing? what did it decide it was doing? >> it was never supposed to be a state. it asked its member countries to delegate some of the sovereignty for great testify interests. it was designed to be a family
2:46 am
of democratic european unions committed to work together for peace and prosperity. in terms of peace, the success is unquestionable. it would be unthinkable for france and germany, for example, to go to war. their 2012 nobel peace prize was given in a european union in what was a very important gesture. in terms of prosperity, there has been much discussion over the financial crisis, the greek crisis and so on. if we compare the europe of today to where it was 60 years ago, it unambiguous it benefits from this articulation whachlt was interesting about today was the declaration signed on by the 27 members of the european union. the british were not there. the commitment of four major ways of thinking about the european union as it goes forward. the question of sustainability, of security around the question of terror, of building a social europe and i think perhaps most interestingly of building a stronger europe that is committed to multi-lateral
2:47 am
policies. i think this is very forward-looking. it takes into account the sorts of challenges that it has faced recently over the migrant crisis, the terror crisis. it is an institution that is trying to think where it needs to go as it heads beyond the 60th birthday. >> about that, european leaders, i believe it was jean-claude junker, would be around for the handle. >> i do. i think the fact that there were demonstrations is indicative of the divisive rhetoric organized around the european union. we saw it in the declarations of the various council. it is a deep recognition of the fact that the european union, liberal policies and globalization have left people behind. that the europe of the north, east, west, and south are not the same and there are tremendous inequities within
2:48 am
