be uphill battles in my opinion. >> what a catch-22. i'm sure universities hoped they did a good job in training lawyers and i'm sure they regret maybe doing a good job about training these lawyers are now turning around and suing them. judge, i'm fully out of time. thank you to you both. great to have your perspective. congratulations on your wonderful careers. thank you, everyone, for being with us.

9:01 am
disappear. want to get to the markets. we saw the dow jones hit a record trading high as soon as it opened the next number everybody's watching for is where is it going to close at then of the day? for now you see it there, up 96 points. yesterday was a quiet trading day because of the long holiday weekend. >> things are going to get busier as we head towards friday's jobs report. green arrows all over the dow. in sydney, australia, the sydney opera house lighting up in blue. why? to mark world autism day. one of several landmarks being used around the tworld raise awareness. >> according to autism australia, 1 in 110 trailians have some form of the disorder. here the united states the figure is 1 in 88. a story of three mothers fighting to get insurance coverage for their children with autism. >> rio de janeiro we know it was an american woman who was the
9:02 am
victim of that brutal attack there. she was rippelationshi raped, a beaten and robbed. >> on a public mini bus. police have made a third arrest in connection with the attack. what do we know about this third individual? >> reporter: that's right, suzanne. we should remind our viewers two men were arrested this weekend, shortly after this horrific crime. they've arrested a third suspect last flight. and it's interesting, part of the way they were able to locate him was using surveillance video, because these men stole the credit cards of two tourists and went from gas station to gas station taking out cash. so the surveillance cameras at the gas station helped police locate these suspects. the third suspect was arrested in a city almost an hour away from rio de janeiro.
9:03 am
this crime is continuing to have repercussions throughout the country. not only because of the huge international events coming. we've talked about this before. pope francis will be here in three months and millions of young people expected to flock to rio de janeiro for world youth day, hear his sermons and enjoy the celebration and the world cup and rio will host olympic games in 2016. there's a bigger issue beginning to play out as well. and that's the city's historyic problem with crime. they're taking notice because foreigners were attacked. what about all of the brazilians who have been at risk past. >> let's be real. this is getting publicity, it's an american woman and french man. it must be irking people who had similar things happen and got less reaction from authorities. >> reporter: exactly.
9:04 am
we've had some horrible cases already. one woman came forward after the first two suspect were arrested to say, hey, those two men are the men who raped me in similar circumstances a week before. and this woman had gone to the police, she had to wait three hours to get into the hospital to do an aids test, and so she came forward and said i've reported this and nothing was done. maybe, maybe if you'd helped me these people wouldn't have suffered the same fate. now as a result of that, the rio police chief who is a woman has fired two people. she's fired the police commissioner in charge of women's affairs. and also the police officer in charge of the medical hospital where the woman saw huge delays and unfortunately she said the two police officers that she has fired are women. and she's embarrassed and apologized that this is happening, that they have not been able to further you know, their cause for women in rio de janeiro. >> thank goodness they're trying to do something about this
9:05 am
finally doing something about this. thank you very much. we are following this story. after week of threatening the united states and its allies north korea saying it's going to put action behind those threats. >> the isolated country says it's going to restart a nuclear reactor. it shut down more than five years ago. that has south korea on alert and the u.n. on edge. people around the world waiting to see what happens next. >> the united states has stepped up its military presence the senior u.s. officials are downplaying the threat. i want to bring in christiane amanpour who joins from new york. you were part of the group and the cnn cre that was in north korea that witnessed destroying that cooling tower that nuclear plant back in 2008. did you ever imagine that this would be fired up again? >> well, look, it's really hard to see what's go on right now because there are so many questions. we were there five years ago when they showed us around the
9:06 am
very plant that they're talking about restarting. we actually saw them literally take things down and mothball them, wrap them up in saran wrap if you like, and disable the vital functioning of the plutonium reprocessing plan. we also were invited back several months later in june and we watched them blow up the cooling tower, the visible attribute of a nuclear power plan. and the essential, part of the essential attributes of making that plant work and enabling that reprocessing of the plutonium. we see they're talking about restarting it. american officials and scientists say they do not know how quickly or how well they could do that but they may have built, the north koreans, another plutonium reprocessing plant somewhere else and may also have uranium enrich man plants. all questions remain to be answered. in the meantime, u.s., i talked to the chief pentagon press secretary yesterday, and he had
9:07 am
this to say about the maneuvering -- >> well, we haven't seen any kind of troop movement on the north korea be side that would indicate imminent military action. we think things may be dialing down on the peninsula. we're prepare for any contingency with our south korean allies. >> so a lot of this show of military might that the united states has been deploy nothing the region over the last several days and week is as george little said designed to inspire confidence in their allies and to show the north they are determined and capable should the north try anything. the question is, will they? what remains me now of what's going on is, according to u.s. officials the north is trying to be accepted as a nuclear power, to be dealt with with the united states and by the united states and other key powers as a legitimate nuclear power. and this reminds me of what iran went through starting in 2005, determined that the world will
9:08 am
deal with them as a nuclear power. now they say they're not with nuclear weapons but insint sins on their right of enrichment. >> christiane, when you look at okay what can be done? you have ban ki-moon saying it's gone too far but diplomacy is the answer, this one of the more sanctioned countries on earth. it doesn't seem to be working, does it? >> you're absolutely right. this is one of most sanctioned countries on earth, yet this stuff continues. the last couple of tests, they've tested three nuclear devices. they've done missiles. they've put a satellite in orbit. all of this shows that no matter how the sanctions are going they are managing to move forward with their program. how much forward, how much capability, that is still a question that is unanswered and people are still having to figure that out. but you're right, what is the way to really stop this? the u.s. and others have told me
9:09 am
that what they want to do is hope that china, which is practically the only country with leverage over north korea, will bring its ally into line and continue to be a force of stability in north korea and on the korean peninsula. we haven't yet seen a huge amount of that success from china exerting that influence on north korea but we see increased frustration by china over what the north is doing. >> christiane, thank you very much. appreciate it. wave heard the chinese officials today saying they are worried about the news, they're firing this thing, potentially firing it back up, that this is not good. >> they are the ones who can turn off the tap for the fuel oil that keeps the country running. they do have leverage. other sanctions are not working. in los angeles, we are watching this. a jury selection starting this hour in the trail that is of course attracting worldwide attention. talking about michael jackson's mother and his children suing the concert promoter here

9:11 am
involuntary manslaughter for injecting the insomniac pop star with the lethal dose of propofol. >> what do you think, as the cause of death? >> i don't know. all i know is they used propofol and they shouldn't have used it. >> reporter: the lawyer says there was never a signed contract and murray, who was never paid anything, served only at the pleasure of michael jackson. >> if you look draft explicitly he was chosen by michael jackson to be at michael jackson's behest, mooishg wichael jackson he only person to get rid of him t will. >> reporter: also on the list, but not expected to testify, the artist prince who has his on history with aeg. musician quincy jones could take

welcome back. into peru, the military's saying it desperately needs to beef up its ranks so it's threatening to bring back the draft if it done get enough new volunteers. >> critics are saying it's going to be something else because this is a draft for the country's poor. rafael romo explains why. >> reporter: be all you can be,
9:41 am
south american style. peru is calling on its young to serve in the armed forces, but most are in the heeding the call. military service should be something you have a calling for. i don't believe i have that calling. >> reporter: plans are under way to reinstate the draft by may, for the first time in a decade. draft has been controversial enough without another aspect of the heated debate, paying to avoid serving. those called up and do not want to serve can pay a fine of about $715. the president, a former military officer, is strongly backing the plan. but critics say, this essentially ams to a draft of the poor. >> translator: different kinds of drafts work in other countries. in our country, if our reality the draft didn't work. we had many cases of desertion, deaths, abuses and problematic cases. and that's the reason the state decided our system should be closer to a voluntary system. >> reporter: near will a third of peru's poplation lives below

9:43 am
