9:00 am
on this september 11t thank you for watchin newsroom. "newsroom international" starts now. welcome to "newsroom international." i'm suzanne malveaux. we're taking you around the world in 60 minutes. right now, star power and a humanitarian crisis. angelina jolie meets with syrian refugees in jordan as u.n. embassy. a country that has not had a real central government since 1990s, suddenly there is new hope. and a new president for somalia. but today we begin on a day we all promise never to forget. from pennsylvania to the pentagon to ground zero, the country marks the 11th anniversary of the september 11th terrorist attacks. at world trade center, a site in new york, family members read the names of 2,753 people who
9:01 am
died there. four times today, that reading stopped. [ bell tolling ] >> the sound of the bell followed by the sound of i silence marks the moment the two planes hit the towers and the moment each tower fell. at the pentagon, president obama took part in a wreath laying ceremony. he said the wounds from 9/11 are still painful but the legacy of the unity and strength. >> as painful as this day is and always will be, it leaves us with a lesson, that no single event can ever destroy who we are. no act of terrorism can ever change what we stand for. instead, we recommit ourselves to the values that we believe in, holding firmly without
9:02 am
wavering to the hope that we confess. that's the commitment that we reaffirm today. and that's why, when the history books are written, the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division, it will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and a people more united than ever before. >> we want to bring in reporters covering the 9/11 anniversary. poppy harlow, barbara starr, and dana bash on capitol hill. poppy you, had a chance to talk with the family of a trader who died at world trade center. what do they want us to remember, if at all? >> i did. i spoke with elaine and bob hughs, their 30-year-old son, chris, was killed in the south tower. he worked on the 89th floor and every day for them they say it feels like 9/11 but they also
9:03 am
had a bigger message and, suzanne, that bigger message was we can never be beaten. today was very important for them. a big day for the mother, elaine hughes, hopefully you're seeing video of her right now. she got to read off names during this memorial ceremony of the victims including her son's name, chris hughes and she told me that was a check off my bucket list. i wanted to do that for my son. a very big day for her. but i also talked to them how this year, this anniversary of 9/11, is different than any of the prior anniversaries. here's what they told me. was today different than the tenth anniversary of 9/11? and if so, how? >> i think this year it was, i felt better, mostly because there were no politicians here, no big fanfare an it was for the people. >> reporter: that's what i thought.
9:04 am
>> just for the people. and you could feel everyone's presence here. >> reporter: that embodies what i felt here all day, and that is today is not about pomp and circumstance, i not the about the president being down here, it's gist about the people and the families and remembering. a lot of the families went over to the memborial site and etche their names on paper. but 11 years later it's incredibly paper fun fol these parents and every family member but also today, suzanne, i would be remiss not to mention what a beautiful day it is for them to remember their families. it's a clear, crisp, sunny day, tuesday morning, just like it was on 9/11 and that is really sticking with the people here as well. >> poppy, thank you very much. want to go to barbara. you were at the pentagon during those attacks 11 years ago. tell us now, 11 years later the war in afghanistan winding down,
9:05 am
your thoughts and the people there at the pentagon. >> reporter: well, here at the pentagon, again, the president came the moment of silence but what you saw was the pentagon family, those on american 77 and many people from the pentagon will gather in two hours out in the central courtyard for another ceremony to commemorate what happened here. but here at pentagon for the military, there is a lot of emphasis on the troops, 77,000 american forces still fighting in afghanistan every day, still on the front line, the wounded, the killed in action, coming home to their towns and communities across the country. the emphasis here is on remembering those troops, remembering their sacrifice and their call to duty, even while we remember what happened here 11 years ago. the war in afghanistan, whatever the politicians want to say about it, it is still a case where many americans are out
9:06 am
there risking it all. suzanne? >> thank you, barbara. dana, want to bring you in, you were there 11 years ago, right where you are. take us back to that day what you remember and how we have not seen the kind of bipartisanship that we saw since that time. >> reporter: well, let's start there, suzanne. moments ago, there was a remembrance ceremony with the leaders of the house and the senate republicans and democrats. they gave brief remarks but ended by singing "god bless america" and the reason why that is so poignant is because 11 years ago, i remember it like it was yesterday, that the members of whong dispersed all over the city came together at the end of the day on 9/11 in order to show the strength of the u.s. government and they broke into song, into this song "god bless america" in an impromptu way it was remarkable. but it was the end of a day that was something that none of us will forget.
9:07 am
but here at capitol i can paint the picture of what happened. my personal experience, that of many others here i was coming up here, right now this is all a visitor's center and you can't park up here but we were able to park 11 years ago before secure changed. drove up here, i came up here across the plaza, into the capitol, and the capitol police officers were trying to help me get in because they realized there was a news story going on, none of us realizes how intense it was. as soon as i got in there, the capitol police started to scream run. and i ran out, every other staff somewhere lawmakers here early came out, down the steps to the united states senate. i remember very clearly seeing senators just streaming down the steps, not knowing where to go, not having a plan, we all came to here where i'm standing, which is just across the plaza, and we actually over here plugged in a camera that showed
9:08 am
up miraculously. we didn't have access to phones, nobody did. all of our cell phones were blocked up. but they were able to plug in, our camera operator was able to plug in, get a sense of what was happening here as people were so frightened. as soon as we were able to plug in, the capitol police officers heard on their radio there was a plane, they didn't know where it was, it turned out to be flight 93, which of course crashed in pennsylvania and they started to scream, run, run, run for your life, and everybody took off. press, reporters, staff members, members congress. i want you to see the scene. people running down this lawn straight across as fast as they could. that's the supreme court over there, just to get to the street, and the scene was terrifying, frankly, people were running out of their shoes, on the lawn but also i just remember how there was no plan for some of the most senior members of our government. robert c. byrd of west virginia,
9:09 am
he was third in line to be president. i remember seeing him right out there wandering around. i don't think he had a staff member with him, there was no plan in place for him to go anywhere. obviously that is quite, quite different now. >> memories are so fresh for so many folks. thank you very much for painting that picture. they've tried to do as much as they can to put plans in place since that tragic day. 11 years after september 11th attacks the brother of al qaeda's leader is now offering to mediate a peace deal between al qaeda and the west. now he explains these terms to our own nic robertson in a cnn exclusive interview. watch this. >> reporter: if the man next to me looks familiar, it's because he is. he's the brother of al qaeda leader, ayman al zawahiri. we are meeting mohammed al za weary because he has a plan to end al qaeda's jihad against the west.
9:10 am
i only speak as a mediator for the islamic movement. i don't remember certain groups. my role is a mediator between the west and them, he says. our people like death the same way others like life. but we don't want to get into this endless cycle of violence. we like for others and us to live peacefully. mohammed al zawahiri was released from egyptian jail barely five months ago after serving 14 years on charges including terrorism, charges he denies. before jail, he and his brother were fellow jihadists, still share the same ideology, he says. there is no difference between my brother's thinking and mine. the portrayal of my brother's ideologies and mine, that it's bloodthirsty, barbaric or terrorists not true at all, he says. his six-page proposal offers a
9:11 am
continue-year truce if -- u.s. and west stop interfering in muslim lands, u.s. stop interfering in muslim education, u.s. ends the war on islam, the u.s. to release all islamist prisoners. it also call on islamists, too, stop attacks on western and u.s. interests, protect legitimate western and u.s. interests in muslim lands, stop provoking the u.s. and the west. it is similar to a proposal bin laden made in 2004. then came the attack in london in 2005. is your proposal like this, if it isn't accepted, there's more attacks? i am sorry to say those who caused the london attacks were the west, because the oppression was continuous, either you stop the oppression or accept reconciliation, he says. you have to be logical if you
9:12 am
want to live in peace, then you must make others feel that they will live in peace. so make his point, zawahiri leads me to a protest outside the u.s. embassy. this is the protest calling for the release of the blind sheikh jailed for his part in the 1993 world trade center attack in new york. we meet the sheikh's son. when you call for prisoners to be released as part of your document, you're talking about sheikh rahman, the first one. if shake rahman is released this can help improve the relationship. how does that work? why does it change people's minds? because he explains, it reduces the impression of u.s.
9:13 am
arrogance. zawahiri denies niece contact with his brother, but says he could be if the u.s. allows it. do you think it's realistic that the united states would release somebody like khalid shaikh mohammed the man accused of masterminding september 11th? >> as you see, shake mohammed's hand is stained in blood of the americans, he says. we also see the hands of american leaders and soldiers stained in the blood of the muslims. those in prison with the islamic movement would also be released. we want to turn a page and forget the past. zawahiri has faith his brother wants to turn the page, too. but it wouldn't be the first time the terms were unimaginable for western leaders. nic robertson, cnn, cairo, egypt. >> more of what we're working on for "newsroom international." a man in israel so desperate for change he sets himself on fire.

9:17 am
militants battling for control. you might remember it best for blackhawk down, back in 1993 a group of elite u.s. soldiers dropped into somalia to capture two top lieutenants. it resulted in a fight that left 18 u.s. soldiers dead. the incident considered a failure for the clinton administration. now somalia ushering in a new era. yesterday sworn in as president, michael holmes joins us to talk about this. they had a transitional government for a while, since 2004. this would be something different and new. explain how. >> yeah, this guy is -- this is the first time they've had a president that is being elected within the country by the people, if you like, since way, way back. civil war back in '91, as you said. interesting thing about this guy, he's a moderate. he's a political activist, an academic but never involved in formal politics. and that really is what makes him interesting. in the religious sense he's a
9:18 am
moderate as well, a moderate islamist, a humble man, comes from one of the biggest clans in the country and represents what could be a different sort of future for the country because he's not associated with the violence and corruption of the past so that's a good thing. >> what's left in somalia? what kinds of group, organizations, terrorists are still in somalia that can present a problem to this guy? >> the first positive news, it's more secure than it used to be, but it is far from secure. talking about a country that the pirates we hear about all the time are there. it's awash with guns, there are clans, private armys, warlords. after 1991, when the warlords got together overthrow a dictator they turned on each other. you've had a country that isn't unified in any way, not geographically. it's really a patchwork of semi
9:19 am
autonomous entities, it's no a big unified country. >> the fact this country's been broken for so long, are people optimistic? is this a real sign of hope or is this symbolic? >> you know, the a starting point. some hope it could be a turning point. there's both. there's pessimists who say this is one more attempt since 2004 all of those transitional governments that's led to this, one more attempt to try to govern the ungovernorable. but those are saying this guy could be able to help, he's got to fix a society that's been ripped, torn apart, by civil strife. but one thing about somalia, the economy's has potential. this is a country that has good reserves, potential reserves of oil, iron, natural gas, if only they could get it together. time will tell. >> you can only imagine all of those years and years of instability, how they feel about this new leader. michael, thank you.

angelina jolie putting the spotlight on syrian refugees as the crisis nears epic proportions. a quarter million have fled their country in the last 18 months of bloodshed, 85,000 of them have escaped across the border to jordan. jolie has been visiting some of them today at the camp in her role as a u.n. refugee agency special envoy. jolie spoke passionately about the wounded children she met are who now orphaned because of the civil war. we'll bring that to you in a moment. but france, the life and times of the new president seems more like a reality tv show. there's of course all of the rancor in paris from the struggling economy of the french and the people, other folks, are consumed with the social life of president francois hollande, in office for three months, hoping to keep the rivalry between his gal pal and partner off the pages out of the headlines
9:24 am
having no such luck. hala, a lot of people say, wow, how's he going to focus on this economic crisis, his plan, policies when this looks like a tella novella happening in fran france. >> talking about that and talking about something very interesting that happened over the last 48 hours. and that is this big debate in france about taxing people who make a lot of money. culturally in france, it's been traditionally distaste for people who exhibit their wealth and this has been out there as a matter of bitter and passionate debate in that country. what happened over the last week is that france's richest man was the head of the louis viewton says the tax plan, taxing people who earned more than 1 million euros, 75% of their income is
9:25 am
unacceptable, i am seeking belgian citizenship. the shup noonewspaper had a tit read "get lost you rich" and then you can fill in the blanks, in french it's -- sorry to the french speakers, it in ex-lingl it could be jerk or stronger. the polarization of france between the left and the right. sound familiar, suzanne? >> of course. it does sound familiar. i understand, too, that he's having some problems keeping his social life under wraps as well. >> that's something that's been ongoing since his current partner tweeted in support of the political rival of francois hollande's ex, follow my train of thought, it does get complicated. what's interesting here, too, on a serious note, france and germany and all of the eurozone
9:26 am
countries have an impact on how the u.s. economy performs, by the way, are all having to figure out a way to cut their spending without completely stifling rome and the french president hollande billed himself the normal president opposed to sarkozy, he said my plan, i'm going to cut spend, increase taxes by a dozen billion euros and he's going forward and saying things that are unpopular. popularity ratings are sinking as eurozone economies are doing everything they can to save the currency. it's a very important period for the region against the backdrop of personal drama in some cases. >> hala, thank you. an epic victory for andy murray and great britain kept a lot of the country up late into the night celebrating.

actress angelina joe lie putting the spotlight on syrian refugees and the crisis nearing epic proportions. a quarter million have thread their own country in the last 18 months. 85,000 escaped across the boarder to jordan. jolie visiting some of them at the camp as a role as u.s. special envoy. jolie spoke passionately about the wounded children she met who are orphans from the civil war. >> reporter: that's right. a-lister angelina jolie came to the camp here in jordan, jordan's largest camp, 30,000-plus people inside the camp living tents who have come over from syria. syrian refugees. talking about whole families and loss of children. jolie particularly talking about
9:36 am
one of the experiences she had when she went with the jordanian military to the border with syria, she said it was an extraordinary experience seeing people come over the border and becoming refugees for the very first time. but what touched her the most were the children and the devastating stories she heard from the children. >> as a mother, certainly, the amount of innocent children that are reported dead, the amount of innocent children i've met here who are wounded, and unaccompanied with them, parents being killed and now on their own, it's impossible to imagine any mother standing by and not stepping up and doing something to prevent this. >> reporter: of course one of the reasons she's here and here representing umt nhcr is because unhcr want to refocus the attention on the syrian refugees. the crisis has been going on for a year in the country and you have tens of thousands of people fleeing syria in other countries
9:37 am
and those countries are having to deal with the strain that puts on their infrastructure. jordan saying we are overcapacity. they have some 80,000-plus syrian refugees in the country and many more coming each day. they're saying things like water supply, energy and health care system are being hit hard because this is a nation of just 6 million people and they have a huge influx of syrian refugees, they're saying basically they need help, they need donations to come in, they need the organizations and the countries to bring forth goods and donations to make sure that people have what they need. speaking of which, we were able to talk to several of the families living in the camp. they say that they simply don't have enough cold water to drink. they just left literally with the clothes on their back. there are children there who were born days ago, brought over the border, they all have lived in such a terrible fear, certainly psychological issues
9:38 am
going on inside the camp as well. people very happy they're not having to worry about their lives being lost but certainly dealing with very difficult conditions, very dusty, dry, flat area. tents that were once white are covered in dust. they look more red than they do white. there are serious problems, people saying they're having issues with diarrhea. refugees do need help. they do need more. jordan is saying we're at capacity we need international community to come forth and help out in this crisis. sara sidner, cnn, jordan. >> started with one young woman pitching a tent in downtown tel aviv and wanted the government to do something about high rents and rising cost of living. a year later israel's leftist movement is still growing. the journalists are telling that story. this is intense because i want you to take a look at what happened at this protest in july. this is the one-year anniversary of the original demonstration.
9:39 am
>> reporter: minutes later, the celebration was cut short when something unexpected and tragic happened. just meters from where we were standing. >> reporter: a man set fire to himself. oh my god! the journalist reporting from the scene, her three-part series israel's radical left is on the online magazine joining us london. extraordinary reporting there. can you tell us what happened? how did something like that, a peaceful protest, turn into
9:40 am
something where someone sets themselves on fire? >> well, what happened was that some protesters are feeling a lot of desperation and the man set himself on fire because he felt that he had been abandoned by the social welfare system in israel. so the situation is very, very bad in israel. this is why he set himself on fire. and the government had a very strange reaction to this, as well, netanyahu went out and said the next day it was a personal tragedy and instead of, you know, what the protesters felt, that it was basically what he did was set himself on fire because he felt abandoned by the government. so when the government goes out and says this is a personal tragedy, it infuriated a lot of
9:41 am
the protesters. >> can you give me a sense of whether or not this is something that a lot of people are sharing, this sense of desperation, or was this one individual in a small group of people inside israel who feel that passionate of what is taking place? >> well, there are a lot of problems in israel. obviously depends on who you ask. but what we can say is that what the protesters feel is that israel has grown obviously has a huge financial growth and this growth has not been distributed equally and you can see that israel ranks as one of the lowest countries when it comes to equality. there's a lot of inquality in israel and the growth has been concentrated to a few protesters feel that the rule of --
9:42 am
apparently about 2 million team in israel are in the situation like this man. they can't -- they don't have enough food for the day and they struggle a lot financially. >> one of the other things that was interesting in your program a lot of folks in that part of the movement feel that iran is not a threat, they don't agree with the prime minister, they feel like there is an israeli loves iran movement that is taking place. i want to play a clip for our viewers. >> i just wanted to check with them the day-to-day people like me, they're feeling the same. they also are afraid. do they want war? do they want to kill the jews? i posted one poster with the message. people started to respond and send me poster and then it become something. >> so what kind of campaign is this? is this something that is catching on in why do they feel so different than their government about iran? >> well, this is a very good
9:43 am
example of a citizen initiative. 0 so the facebook campaign was started by a couple who are graphic designers and have children, and they felt when the threats came up in march they just felt why -- why are we threatening to bomb iran? we don't want the war. we're sure that the people in iran don't want a war either. there are families there. we love them as much as we love our own people. this is why they started the campaign and it became popular to have 80,000 facebook likes if not more and people from iran and israel are actually sending each other love messages over the internet. >> they obviously done share their -- the view of their government. i want to play a little bit of clip here, this is somebody who is an anti-war protester, has a message on top of his car, i believe it's a missile. let's watch.
9:44 am
>> basically i wander around with this missile for three years and i traveled. >> you drove around with a mi missile. >> yeah. >> on my car. in a time three, four months ago, it was really on the news very strongly. we're going to attack iran. you can -- >> how do people respond to this guy with this missile on top of his car. >> sorry? >> how do people respond when they see this missile on top of his car, just driving around? >> most of them laugh. the reason he did this, there's a sense of threat that hangs over everyday life in israel and his way of dealing with this was to make his own missile, put it on his car and, you know, ease tension, hopefully make people laugh. >> there was something else that caught our attention as well. one of the israeli defense forces from three years ago, he was obviously in the military,
9:45 am
makes a total turn here. now is going out dressed as a white soldier. i want to play that clip here. he tells his story. >> i don't speak when i'm performing. it baffles people. they don't know to place it. a soldier done appaologize for being on his mission. he's just taking orders, executing his mission. so that's the state of mind that i'm in. sometimes people are very hostile and say, you're weakening the iseli morale and sometimes people are saying you're the soldier for peace. but if you're the soldier for peace, why do you have a gun? are you with us? are you against us? whose side are you on? >> so clearly these people get a lot of attention. they attract a l of attention. they're trying to bring this message forward. a very diverse group of people committed to change. how are people responding? is there a sense they are accomplishing something by
9:46 am
putting this out there in public. >> well, they are accomplishing something because they're working on a grassroots level and engaging people and you know, they are thinking about things differently. they're not afraid of the government fearmongering about wars. they don't believe in false promises. so they're doing -- they're doing a protest that is, you know, engaging people. it's in a way more interesting to see a missile or to see somebody walking around painted to toe in white than only having all of the serious matters to do with politics. basically what they're doing is that they're using symbols that are politically charged to make people think. >> sure, sure. >> these artists are, you know, out protesting but they're not
9:47 am
the people leading the protesting in israel. but obviously the average feeling in israel, the majority of the population are not lessor do not necessarily believe in peace. 46% of the people do not believe in war with iran. >> we have to leave it there. really interesting series. very interesting series. obviously through the different ways that they are using art and protests, bringing to light some of the opinions and how they feel about what's taking place in their country and their government. appreciate you bringing up a unique perspective. something we don't normally see that is coming out of israel, far left protest and movement they are establishing there. thank you very much. deadly virus ripping through central africa. might be spreading at victims' own funerals. own funerals. we'll explain how. own funerals. we'll explain how. on a walk, walk, walk. love to walk.
