now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com he has only been on the job for nine months but pope francis has captured the world's attention winning time's person of the year. >> new details about the deadly plain crash in san francisco. the pilots were warned about the steep landing but may have relied too much on those automated systems. >> and this. a moment that everyone remembers. you can't forget this. elian gonzales being pulled from his home in miami returned to cuba. now he's all grown up and he blaming the u.s. embargo for the death of his mother. welcome to around the world". i'm suzanne malveaux. >> i'm michael holmes. thanks for your company. with all the news pope francis has been making, you will to think miley cyrus didn't stand a chance when it came to this.
9:01 am
>> the people's pope beating out the twerker as well as the leaker edward snowden to be "time" magazine's person of the year. the editors saying "with a focus on compassion, the leader of the catholic church has become a new voice of conscience." >> we wanted to find out what the people think. so here's some reaction from the streets of london. >> i'm glad that he's being a pope and i'm glad he's being compassionate, but they're sitting on a sewer. >> he's doing a lot of innovative reforms supposed to his predecessor. in that sense, i think that maybe it's valid. >> i think a good person is new ideas of the of christian church. >> he seems to be much more of a pope of the people than previous popes. >> seems like a really nice guy for a pope actually, but i'm not sure about being person of the year. >> why is that? >> well, he's hardly been in the job five minutes. >> all right. >> nice guy for a pope. >> that has got to be the hands down winning line there.
9:02 am
i want to bring in our religious commenter edward. what do you make of the fact she says something liking that comparing him to previous popes? it's pretty ironic, don't you think? >> yeah, it's kind of funny. what strikes me though is this pope is making a difference to people who aren't even catholic. you have atheists embracing the pope because they say at least he's willing to have the conversation. inclusion is the hallmark thus far of this pope. remember, it's only nine months. so he hasn't been on the world is taken very long. to do as much as he has done and change the perception so much in such a little bit amount of time, i think it's remarkable. >> you and i were talking a couple of hours ago. i want to put to you the same question. before. pope francis came along, the conversation if you like about the catholic church pretty much focused on the sex abuse scandal and focused on things like the vatican bank. how much -- those conversations still exist, but really he has changed that will conversation to other things.
9:03 am
how much impact, broad impact has he had on the church and what people the faithful and otherwise think of it? >> i think the impact has been great. we've gone from being perceived as a church of,000 shalttle not to a church that you shall and you should and you will because he's taking a proactive stance about where the church needs to be in its mission, serving the boar, embracing the outcasts, that line on the plane when he was asked about gay folk. he said who am i to judge. and i mean, that rebounds, rebounded across the world because this was a pope for the first time saying the word gay, by the way, and not in a disparaging comment, but in an inclusive one. and i think that that will be what will continue with this pope. >> what's amazing, he really does lead by example. very humble life. you know, he's walking along. he's helping -- he meets and greets people. >> picks up the phone. >> yeah, he sends out writes
9:04 am
letters to folks, gives them a call. do we think this is going to make much of a difference when you look at the big picture, when you look at the future of the church here? is there going to be anything in theology or practice where you know, things are really going to change? >> well, suzanne, let's begin with perception. it is a big thing to suddenly have people engaged with the church in very positive ways. that's a big start. now, people are saying, well, he hadn'tent done much done electrically to make any changes. the real indication we have maybe something afoot there, he's going to meet with his cardinals and talk about divorced and remarried people. up to this point, they're not able to receive comom union if there's not an annulment. he indicated something needs to be done with divorced and married people. that's a start. when asked in an interview about married priests, while he didn't say he was going to change that, his comment was it can change as if this is not doctrine that cannot change.
9:05 am
so we don't know the exactly what's going to be in the future. he's made a remarkable start. some of the more particulars i think will still becoming. >> i've got to ask you, look into your crystal ball. what we know of this pope, he's obviously being told, what do you think his reaction will be? >> well, i understand the comment from the vatican was that if he was chosen, he's not looking to be famous. he's not seeking it, but if it helps the mission of the church, he's all for it. i think he realizes he reluctantly steps into the spotlight. we know that. and we know his simplicity is all around in every story talking about his simplicity. we know that he reaches people in a way that very few previous popes have. you saw those pictures of him hugging that man that disfigured man without giving a second thought to it. hugging the man without a face. he goes to people that will no one else seems toent wa to go to. i think this is what's really remarkable and what is changing people's hearts about the papacy
9:06 am
and perhaps even about the church. >> yeah, very good point. good to see you, father edward beck there. >> thank you. i can't tell you how many people who say i really like this guy. i like this new pope. >> i'm not. i think he's pretty cool. he's certainly saying the right things about inclusiveness and acceptance and broadening out the perspective people have on the church. lul. >> we're also following this. this is the first officer, the guy who sits behind the pilot on the asiana airline airlines jet that crashed over thor? . he says he warned the pilots about the plane's steep rate of descent. that first officer sitting behind the captain as the plane was coming down. now, three people were killed, more than 180 were hurt last july when the boeing 777 hit a seawall crashed at san francisco international airport. >> today, the ntsb is trying to find out, of course, what went so long. cnn's rene marsh is covering today's hearing in washington. i guess a big question is, did
9:07 am
the pilots rely as some have suggested too heavily on automation, the computers that can run the plane? >> that is one of the key questions that investigators are digging into. and you know, we just got some new video coming out of that hearing that we want to get right to. we know that that video again, this is from airport security cameras, and this shows us a different perspective that we have never seen before of this crash as it happened. that is the video that you're looking at there. some incredible details coming out of this hearing. the ntsb says that the pilot flying the plane was concerned prior to the crash. he told investigatorshate found a visual approach difficult and stressful. we should mention he was tasked with making a visual approach as he was going to san francisco's airport. now, when asked how confident he was about his knowledge of the triple 7s automated flight systems, i'm quoting from the
9:08 am
transcript, he said, he's not so confident. he felt that he should study more. again, that coming from the pilot who was at the controls saying he wasn't very confident with the automated systems inside that plane. ntsb investigators are concerned about pilots overreliance on automated systems in the cockpit. specifically when it comes to the plane's auto throttle. it's the equivalent of cruise control in a car, and the pilot thought that the auto throttle was engaged, but it turned out it was not. that us caed the plane to fall to a dangerously slow speed. it suggests a few things. the pilot didn't recognize that the auto throttle was disengaged. they weren't cross-checking possibly the equipment or again, they didn't fully understand how to operate the plane's automated systems. anyway way you look at it, that is a big scary issue if you are a passenger on that plane. >> yeah, and renee looking at
9:09 am
the new video, it is amazing to watch this particularly in slow motion. it almost looks like there is a successful landing until the when thing turns and crashes there. what is the information about the first officer who was behind the captain who actually warned him about this? what do we know about that? >> right, so we know that the problem with ashjian na 214 was that it was flying too slow and too low. but today, we learned that the first officer warned. he said more than four times about an excessive sink rate, meaning that the plane was coming down too quickly and that was not correct. it should not have been coming down at the speed that it was. he did that about 52 seconds before the crash. we know that the pilots acknowledged hearing him, but we -- what we don't know is why wasn't it corrected. we know that the warnings came about 52 seconds before the crash. more than enough time to correct
9:10 am
the problem, suzanne. >> rene, thank you so much. it's very interesting to see the middle of the plane that is most impacted. those people who perished and both sides seem to be fine. >> reminds you that there's people flying those planes. there's human factors involved still in the skies, but what a terrifying experience for those people. let's move on now. the joyous celebration we witnessed yesterday in johannesburg at nelson mandela's memorial replaced about i a more somber mood today. why? because mandela's body is now lying in state for the next three days. >> his flag-draped coffin was taken to the government complex in pretoria where he made history nearly 20 years agate the country's first black president. well, today was reserved for families and dignitaries to pay their respects to say good-bye nelson mandela. tomorrow and friday, ordinary south africans from all walks of life will be allowed to come by and give their respects, pay their respects to what he is
9:11 am
known as the belofed tata madiba. >> there were thousands of people lined up to do this today but under custom in south africa, they have to take the body and put it inside overnight. they had to take it back to its resting place at 5:30 p.m. before it got dark. tomorrow it will be back out during daylight hours. >> and sunday he will be buried. the south african government is now investigating claims by the country's deaf community. this is something that is very unusual that the hand signals that were used right by this interpreter at yesterday's memorial were quote, this is according to some folks, meaningless because his performance was seen by millions of people around the world but those who know south african sign language are outraged. >> one of the many giveaways, those who know sign language were saying this basically didn't make sense. also, there was a complete lack of facial expressions which are considered just as much a part of sign language as hand gestures. have a comparison to show you,
9:12 am
too. the sign language interpreter lydia callus when she worked for then new york mayor michael bloomberg. >> her animated performance during a news conference about superstorm sandy made maher a national sensation. >> they're looking into that. i tell you that, this guy apparently appeared in a couple of other rallies and was criticized then. so of's going. >> what's going on. >> the government is looking into it. >> here's more of what we're working on for around the world. he was just 6 years old when he became the center of al international custody battle. now elian gonzales is all grown up. you see him there leaving cuba for the first time in years. going to take a look at the life he's been living since he was pulled from his relatives' house in miami and returned to cuba. plus -- >> you see there police moving towards protesters. this is in key eb, the capital of ukraine. fighting with thousands of
9:13 am
demonstrators tearing down the barricades. it was very tense for a few hours last night in kiev. >> and new details about the terror attack in a shopping mall in kenya. why officials say there may have been only four gunman instead of a dozen and how they might have escaped alive.

9:17 am
probably less than $5,000. now, that, of course, a far cry from the initial reports that suggested it was a highly sophisticated operation long in the planning. and perhaps involving as many as 15 terrorists. now, in nevada, a couple and four children safe and warm today after they were stranded for two dayses in below zero temperatures. now, they went missing after their jeep overturned and slid down an enbaxment. rescuers though says james glantton and his girlfriend were able to start a fire. they did many of exactly the things you should do in such a situation, even heating rocks to keep the children warm. now, after they were rescued, the six were taken to hospital to get checked out anyway. >> well, the father and mother and their four children are all doing very well, remarkably well considering how old it's been and the fact that they've been out in the elements for these past two nights. i think as you guys have already
9:18 am
been briefed earlier that they did a lot of things right by staying with the vehicle and they did have food and water available with them. and as soon as they -- the vehicle suffered this slow rollover accident, the father jumped into action an, knew they had to stay warm and the first thing he did was build a fire. he was able to keep that will fire going the entire time while they were out. >> some smart decisions there. at least 200 people, by the way were, involved in that search which spanned 6,000 square miles. >> good for them. elian gonzales says he is a cuban revolutionary who looks up to fidel castro as "my god." that is what he said. that is exactly what his u.s. relatives feared when he was forcibly removed from american soil back income towel and deported to cuba. i was there when this happened. i had been there for four weeks covering the controversy swirling around this young boy, and then this unforgettable moment, the terrified face of elian gonzales with an automatic
9:19 am
weapon in his face as he was snatched by federal marshals. nearly 15 years later, he is now blaming the u.s. embargo for killing his mother who had drowned on his way there and countless other cubans. cnn's patrick opman has the update from havana. >> elian, his first name is enough to recall the story of the boy who miraculously leaving cuba only to find himself in the middle of a bitter custody battle. now that boy is a 20-year-old man who says he sknt isn't scarred by his mother's death at sea or the fight that ripped his family apart. >> translator: i haven't had any long-lasting psychological trauma. it hasn't affected me but it has been hard on my family because those were difficult moments but in spite of everything, i'm in cuba. that's great because it's been 15 wonderful years in willy have experience great growth without precedence as a cuban
9:20 am
revolutionary youth espousing the cause. >> he spoke to cnn in espanol in ecuador where he's part of an official cuban delegation to i youth conference, his first trip abroad since the u.s. government removed him at gunpoint from his relati relatives' home in miami and sent him back to cuba to live with his father. for fidel castro, his return was a public relations victory over enemies in the cuban exile a community. just behind me is the u.s. diplomatic mission in havana. i'm standing at the house many of those mastiff demonstrations where tens of thousands of cubans gathered to call for his return home. during that showdown, castro promised if he willon gonzales was sent back to cuba, he was not be turned into i an propaganda tool for the cuban government despite those assurances, his life was anything but normal.
9:21 am
his father went to being a member of the national assembly. bodyguards protect him at all times. now he studies engineering at a military school in cuba. and appears to be emerging as a new spokesman for the cuban government. >> translator: the message for me is that many others have died while trying to reach american soil. but it is because of the american government itself that will with an unfair blockade causes a critical economic situation inside of cuba. >> elianian gonzales's miami relatives said they tried to keep him from returning to cuba to prevent him from being brainwashed by castro. but in a recent interview, gonzales said the cuban leader saved his life and that to him, fidel castro is "his god." >> patrick opman joins us from havana. i'll never forget those days outside of his home yelling don't go, don't go. he can't go. then the riots that broke out afterwards when finally he was taken from that home.
9:22 am
does he still resonate within the cuban society and those in miami, as well? >> very much so because of course, suzanne, here in havana people were saying come home, depending he be returned. and he became a celebrity here in cuba like he became a celebrity in the united states. even here in cuba, you see very, very little of elian. the government has kept him for the most part out of public view. those appearances we've seen over the years are all very carefully choreographed videos that are released carefully edited videos, as well released by cuban state tv. so the government shows us pictures of elian when they want us to see him. now na he's been able to travel abroad, been able to give interviews to the international press, it's clear that the cuban government has faith in elian, they're letting him go in this delegation where there's some 200 members of the delegation including one of cuba's vice presidents. it will be interesting what happens with him now. we know he's planning on going
9:23 am
to a military career and also appears he'll be having more of a public life, suzanne. >> all right. patrick electric open, thank you so much. appreciate it. >> when we come back, more violence in ukraine. a lot of tension. this time police using bulldozers, chain saws and force, but the protesters stood their ground. we were there in the ground. we're going to give you an up-close look how it all unfolded coming up next. you're watching "around the world." i see a world bursting with opportunity,

crackdown yet in the ukraine, thousands of riot police used force to try to lee mof protesters from kiev scare. i want you to watch this. >> unbelievable pictures there. police using bulldozers and chain saws to tear down those barricades that the protesters had actually set up. the protests they are angry that the president has refused to sign a european union deal. the protesters say that deal would have opened borders to trade and set the stage for a ukraine becoming more modernized. >> instead the president mr. yanukovych has moved closer back towards russia, which was
9:28 am
against the deal because it won't have helped them. russia supplies the ukraine with natural gas which keeps the people from freezing every winter. so that's a pretty big stick to wield. diana magnay is in kiev and witnessed what went on last night. >> it's 2:00 in the morning and it would appear that the riot police have decided that this is the time to go into the square in full force. i don't know how we're going to get in. this is the only way down, and there are police three deep, but we'll try. unclear how they're going to push through these barricades which have been up there for a long time. you can see the protesters manning the barricades. and there are hundreds of riot police here. but no easy access for them through into the square, which is exactly the way the protesters want it.
9:29 am
so the police have moved down here with chain saws to try and saw through these barricades. and also use brute force to pull them back. and it does look as though in that corner, it is giving way.
9:30 am
now you have this sea of helmets, the red helmets of protesters against the black helmets of the riot police head on head. we'll see what happens next. >> you can see there also, the protesters eventually won the police with drew. protesters rebuilt those barricades. in the last hour or so president viktor yanukovych announced he's inviting representatives of all political forces to have a nationwide dialogue. fingers crossed. it was downtown minus 15 out there last night. >> you were seeing the protesters were actually spraying water on the police so
9:31 am

and it gives you a range of options to choose from. huh? i'm looking at it right now. oh, yeah? yeah. what's the... guest room situation? the "name your price" tool, making the world a little more progressive. president obama back from the world stage in johannesburg and arriving in washington to some pretty big news on the home front. new numbers on obama care enrollment, also a bipartisan budget deal. >>, as well. and republican senator paul ryan and his democratic colleague, patty murray, managed to find, managed to find some common ground and hammer out an agreement. so i want to talk to our own jake tapper about all of this. you have to first of all start with this. it seems like a pretty low bar we're celebrating here. you don't have those entitlement
9:35 am
reforms like they wanted. you don't close the tax loopholes but somehow we're celebrating because we're not going to get another government shutdown. that's good enough. >> somebody agreed on something. >> they agreed on something. is the bar a little too low here? >> we grade on a cuff here in washington. you didn't know that? call it the soft bigotry of low expectations. >> oh, yeah. >> in this era of government shutdowns and standoffs, the idea that eight house republican, a conservative like paul ryan and a progressive senate democrat like patty murray could come together and actually have a plan that looks as though it could pass the house and senate and be signed by president obama, a plan that is modest in goals but will avert a government shutdown and reduce the deficit. that's good news ultimately, even if as you point out, it is not exactly a grand bargain. it's a mini bargain. a baby bargain. >> what about the tea party
9:36 am
reaction? jake, that's obviously going to be crucial. paul ryan copping a little bit of flack. >> house republicans i think it's safe to say house republicans will lose a predictable and sizable chunk of their voters of their caucus. there are a lot of conservative groups that are against this deal saying it does not go far enough. that it does not take into account the social safety net programs and does not take into account tax reform and all the things that they were hoping for, and they're right. it doesn't. progressive groups also opposed to the plan because it doesn't include extending unemployment insurance benefits. that said from my talks with people in the house and senate, i do think at this stage, it probably will pass the house. and the senate and make it to the president's desk. >> jake, one of those things it does too, it at least it makes be smaller those forced cuts, the sequester, those kinds of big, big cuts, the spending cuts there. are people at least relieved in some way that might help the economy looking to the next
9:37 am
year? >> that's right. i mean, one of the problems with the sequester cuts, those forced budget cuts was you know, they were never supposed to happen. they were supposed to be so draconian, so onerous and horrific there's no way they would ever take effect. that's how they were designed. of course, they did take effect. now there are spending cuts but there's a lot more flexibility. they're not as deep. and there are ways for people in decision making it positions to decide what gets cut and what does not get cut. so there is a big sigh of relief from those who do not want those draconian cuts both to domestic spending programs and also to the defense budget. >> jake, thanks. i guess we'll keep celebrating the baby deal as you called it there. >> they agreed on something. >> they agreed on something. i should say, we're going to have congressman paul ryan on our show at 4:00 p.m. eastern and he'll talk about this deal he cut with the democrats. >> 4:00 p.m. eastern. jake tapper with "the lead."
9:38 am
and paul ryan. also another reminder tonight, 10:00 eastern, anderson cooper is going to host a special report honoring the children of newtown. one year since the tragedy there. >> a special will introduce you to sandy hook elementary school parents on a mission to turn their heartbreak into lasting legacies tonight on cnn. chaos captured on camera. >> more violence in the central african republic where hundreds of have already died. and hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. did african soldiers shoot one of their own? we're going to look into that when we come back next on "around the world." there's a saying around here, you stand behind what you say. around here you don't make excuses. you make commitments. and when you can't live up to them, you own up, and make it right. some people think the kind of accountability

[ gunfire ] >> get back in.
9:44 am
>> he shot. >> slowed down, it's revealed as chaos, a shambles. no proper firing positions. it's highly likely these men had shot their own men dead. in this same area, aptly called the fighters district, two french soldiers were killed overnight. and that just illustrates how these streets can go from apparent tranquility to extreme violence in a matter of seconds. it is quite clear it is mob rule on the streets of the capital here today. the african peacekeepers apparently cannot keep a lid on it or control it. the french respect even here on the streets. this morning, driving away from where the peacekeeper had been shot, a large plume of smoke not a mile away. in the mass sectarian fury,

unleashed over this capital in recent days, a mosque ransacked and looted by a christian mob. armed with the obvious machetes and who knows what else. one man says, it's all a response to muslim militia attacking the christians here. >> translator: yesterday evening, the muslims took out their weapons and shot at the civilian population. all muslims in our neighborhood are well armed at the moment, they have weapons in their mosques and houses and they shot at civilians. that's why the people got angry and destroyed their mosque. >> reporter: this religious hatred, they were mocking their muslim neighbors at prayer. in morning in a recorded raidiol message, the u.s. president pleaded for muslim and christian communities here to come together. >> respected leaders in your communities muslim and christian are calling for calm and peace. i call on the transitional government to join these voices and to arrest those who are
9:46 am
committing crimes. >> the americans pledged to help flying in african peacekeepers here from burundi, the british are already flying logistical and military equipment to help 1,000 french peacekeepers here. but how long till these people get the help they desperately need? the 17,000 camped out in a monastery not far from where we're staying. today an ngo attempted to get food to them. they didn't have enough food. they were terrified there would be a riot. there probably would have been. how long will they have to wait before the world gives them what they need? >> alex is telling us, it's certainly not clear why it was that the peacekeepers seemed to shoot one of their own. there was a lot of chaos and confusion. there's a new cease fire that is between the muslim and christian militias that has taken the heat off of one within town in this country. >> there's still a lot of violence there, a lot of uncertainty and still 5800,000

\s>> the laws legalizing marijuana only begin doing take hold here in some states in the united states like colorado but the entire country of our guy is going to have the most extensive law in the world legalizing pot. >> from start to finish, too, in the process. uruguay's president expected to sign the bill. he's been a big supporter of the bill. now, the south american country would be the first in the world to have a system that regulates the production, the sale, the consumption of the drug and cuts out the bad guys. that's the theory in a way. >> that is the theory. rafael romo to give us a demonstration and explain what is behind this first of all. >> a demonstration.

any given time. >> is that a lot of pot? i really don't know? >> i'm not the one to ask that. but we also have to emphasize that there are restrictions to the law. and there are three main restrictions that people are going to have to abide by. number one, they will not be allowed to advertise marijuana in any way, shape or form. no big billboards. no tv ads, no radio, no nothing. say to minors is strictly forbidden. number three, you cannot drive under the influence. if anybody's caught violating any of these three provisions, they face anywhere from 20 months to ten years in prison. >> the idea obviously is to cut out the criminal element, is it? that's the thinking? >> the idea is that the state will control the production, sale and distribution of marijuana so that they can take out of this the drug traffickers that create all the chaos, all the violence and all the deaths.

>> is there any plan to enforce this? how are they going to manage this? >> how do they will manage it across borders? >> the first step is they're going to create a registry. and anybody who wants to legally smoke marijuana in the future in uruguay will have to register. they haven't decided whether people will carry some sort of card or whether they will be in some sort of record but everybody has to register. >> rafael, thanks so much. >> we'll see how that, would out. >> rafael and his baggies. >> you can keep those. >> take your baggies and go. rafael romo there. we'll see how that, would out for uruguay. >> mike tyson wants to visit the united kingdom. the only thing is uk does not want him there. he has actually been banned. we're going to tell you why up next.
