this morning on "world news now" -- on the run. the former nsa contractor who leaked secrets to the world fled hong kong. where he landed, where he is headed and the outrage from the white house. legal challenges. opening statements begin in the george zimmerman trial today. the evidence that is no longer allowed. and how it could change the case. step by step. nik wallenda's latest high-flying stunt over the grand canyon. what a daring move and what he is planning to do next. and singing higher. rihanna's offstage stunt, that is getting buzz. the performer is pushing for legal changes. that's in the "the skinny" on this monday, june 24th. good monday morning. we begin this half-hour with new
details on edward snowden's international flight for freedom. the former nsa contractor is expected to travel to havana this morning. >> he has been able to successfully evade a u.s. arrest warrant, catching american authorities off-guard. our coverage begins right now with chief investigative correspondent brian ross. >> reporter: u.s. authorities were caught off-guard by snowden's sudden departure from moscow thinking they boxed him in hong kong. but officials there told abc's gloria rivera in hong kong the u.s. arrest request and criminal charges forwarded last week against the 30-year-old snowden were badly flawed. >> the hong kong statement cited a failure by the u.s. to prove snowden's actions were illegal under extradition law saying the u.s. failed to provide specific information saying, quote, there was no legal basis to restrict mr. snowden from leaving hong kong. >> reporter: snowden was allowed to board the flight to moscow
before the u.s. could address any problems. >> well, i would like to find out why our papers were not in compliance. that would be a big mistake by the department of justice. >> hong kong, either under the influence of beijing or not, should have made every effort to return him to the united states. >> reporter: snowden's u.s. passport was revoked not in time to prevent his escape on a route arranged by the wikileaks group. now not only has snowden evaded the u.s. arrest warrant, and defecting with four laptops full of the country's most sensitive secrets as he described to "the guardian" newspaper. >> i had access to the full rosters of everyone working at the nsa, the entire intelligence community and undercover assets around the world. >> reporter: in an abc news exclusive, general keith alexander, the head of the nsa told george stephanopoulos on "this week," there was nothing honorable about snowden. >> clearly an individual who's betrayed the trust and confidence we had in him, an individual not acting with nobel intent.
>> reporter: whatever his original intentions saying he wanted to help america by exposing secret surveillance programs he is something different as he uses russia and cuba to seek political asylum from the country he says he loves. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> it appears snowden is in the middle of a big journey picking a most unusual route. >> our coverage continues in moscow this morning where our kirit radia picks up the story. good morning, kirit. what's the latest you can tell us? >> reporter: good morning, guys. this very moment, edward snowden is to the best of our knowledge still at moscow airport. he doesn't have a visa. he can't leave the airport. his flight to cuba doesn't leave for another four hours. i say it is rather -- to the best of our knowledge. a bizarre, mysterious layover for snowden. nobody has actually seen him. but his plane landed. reportedly whisked away by a group of official cars that met his plane on the tarmac. we spoke to a few of the passengers on his flight yesterday, who saw the cars, but they had no idea snowden was onboard with him. it is believed snowden is in the
care of ecuadorian diplomats, who will escort him on the rest of his trip. we saw the ambassador's car parked outside the airport yesterday and chased one of the cars around the airport, another one of the diplomats, but he refused to comment. snowden reportedly spent the night inside the transit area at a hotel in the airport. again nobody has seen him so far again this morning. >> do you know more about the secretive way he was whisked away at the airport? it sounds like a spy novel. >> reporter: it is rather interesting. when you talk to the kremlin, they insist they had no idea he was coming. they had no idea about his plans. and yet, cars able to meet him on the tarmac. it does appear at the very least russians are turning a blind eye to this. they made it clear they will not stop him in moscow. >> thank you. abc's kirit radia reporting live from moscow. stay with abc news all morning long as we cover edward snowden's controversial bid for asylum. look for updates on "america this morning" and "good morning america." nelson mandela's health has taken a turn for the worse. the 94-year-old anti-apartheid

trial is a victory for the defense. like i said before, the judge is now allowing those jurors to listen to the tape and decide for themselves who they believe the individual screaming out for help is. >> the trial is expected to take between two weeks and a month. six female jurors and four alternates will be sequestered for the entire time. their cell phones will be returned once a day so they can call family and friends, but they cannot talk about the trial. texas lawmakers debated some of the toughest abortion restrictions in the country. more than 1,000 abortion rights activists rallied at the state capital in austin. to protest the legislation. if passed the bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks and would require abortions take place in surgical centers. those restrictions would shut down 90% of the abortion clinics in texas. a dozen wildfires whipping across colorado driven by hot, dry, windy weather. the most dangerous ones threatening a resort town in the southwestern part of the state where up to 1,500 residents and summer visitors have been forced out. fires spread to 100 square miles. winds have been erratic.

>> wallenda's walk lasted just over 22 minutes above the little colorado river in northeastern arizona near the grand canyon. when he was done as you saw him running across, as fast as he could. it was more windy on the wire than expected and took every bit of concentration he had to stay focused. yikes. >> sure he said a lot of prayers. >> did you hear -- there is talk of, how do you follow that up? stringing a cable between the empire state building and chrysler building. >> i don't know -- good luck with that. good luck getting permission to do that. i just think this is hilarious at the very end. he couldn't get off of this thing fast enough. probably because it was -- >> kiss the ground. >> kiss the ground. >> better believe it. my goodness. whispering prayers across. 600 spectators watched it. obviously, live and on a big screen. very similar although a lot more people at niagara falls. >> you witnessed him. >> i did. it was great. he had to kneel down once during his walk across the falls. when we got across, he kissed his wife and was happy to be
across, as well. it was more the expectation and the build-up to him walking across. probably, sure that it was the same thing here. >> no net. >> oh, man. >> pulled it off. thank goodness. any time we do a nik wallenda story, it's not the lead. we are happy. >> true. good point. the emotional dispute involving celebrity chef paula deen, who is coming out to support her? later on, hanging ten with man's best friend. bringing together adventurous dogs and surfers? we will tell you. you're watching "world news now." ♪ i don't care about nothing i wanna go surfing ♪ [ phoebe ] stress sweat. it can happen any time, to anyone!
♪ find a cure for pain find a cure for pain ♪ we have all seen the headlines about the promise of stem cells curing disease. but could they also be used to treat aches and pains from injuries? >> some doctors pioneering a new treatment that uses a person's own stem cells to do just that. but the fda says there are real risks. abc's tanya rivero explains. >> reporter: they're the injuries that come from pushing the body too hard. as we age, those bodies don't as quickly bounce back. >> basically, people overdo it. >> reporter: 32-year-old eli wilhide says 12 years of weightlifting left him with crippling shoulder pain, nothing helped. >> acupuncture, massage, icing. >> reporter: eli is not alone.
every year, about 2 million mostly middle-aged americans seek medical help for torn shoulder rotator cuffs. 100,000 undergo surgery on ripped knee ligaments. then eli heard of a new half-hour noninvasive procedure that uses a patient's own stem cells to relieve the pain. >> stem cells, cellular therapy as we call it. it's a strong anti-inflammatory. >> reporter: the procedure is called a bmat. here is how it works -- fluid is taken from the bone marrow of a person's pelvis, spun for 15 minutes, separating the blood from stem cells which are then injected into the joint where the pain exists. >> within two days i was stronger than i had been in a dozen years. >> reporter: but the fda and many doctors are still not convinced. >> sometimes the stem cells can form tumors in certain areas, and form tissues undesirable in certain areas. we don't want to take that risk. >> reporter: though more and more doctors are beginning to offer the procedure off-label, it is still not approved by the fda and so not widely available.
doctors say more testing needs to be done. but they also acknowledge the future of stem cell therapy looks very promising indeed. to be done. but they also acknowledge the future of stem cell therapy looks very promising indeed. tanya rivero, abc news, new york. >> huh, clinical trials under way that could lead to the treatment being approved. it's promising if this is something somebody is looking forward to. >> particularly promising in the spinal injury area. really fantastic. that is so crippling, literally. and if there is almost nothing you can do with those kind of things. real promise for spinal injuries. >> hearing what the last doctor had to say, the side effect i didn't know about. he said injecting the stem cells into your body can led to tumors and tissue build-up that you don't want or need. i never heard of that side effect before. that is very scary. what can a tumor lead to? or what could this tissue build up do to your body, it is, we haven't been able to figure out what long term effect are we aren't using this. >> sure. >> so it would be interesting to
see, you know, what the two side come up as far as arguments and if it is approved what happens with that. >> exciting area to explore. >> for sure. >> the celebrity that has something in common with cheech and chong. jim carrey turns into a critic of himself. coming up next in "the skinny". we'll explain it all. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our abc stations.

"national enquirer" leaked a deposition last week, somebody suing paula deen and her brother for a bunch of little things. main thing was, that she was accusing paula deen of using racial slurs like the n word. paula deen said, yeah, back in the 1960s. yeah, i did. she admitted to using them. there was nothing wrong with what she did. that was back in the day. she issued an apology. that's the apology. anyway, the food network dropped her any way. now her fans have taken to the food network website to voice their outrage, over the fact that she was dropped as, she has been there for a long time. one of their better known chefs. if you ask. she's hugely popular. here is just one of the many
comments that were left. so this is interesting. there was a recipe for zucchini casserole. the comments had nothing to do with the vegetable dish, everything to do with paula deen being let go. this is just one of the comments. everyone in this nation has used a racial comment at one time or another. she grew up in south. why did this woman wait so long to make an issue. more money. that's a question. let's boycott everyone that uses that word they all used it at one time or another. total bunch of hypocrites. that's one woman's opinion. some people support the food network decision to drop paula deen. >> that one is so nuanced. i'm not touching. i am not touching it. >> let's leave that one alone. >> we report, you decide. bust out doritos and chocolate chip cookies. why, rihanna, you will see. took to instagram. saturday. you mean the munchies. >> yeah, in amsterdam apparently. took to instagram. look at that. she revealed an array of smoking
