a helicopter becomes another option for the stranded passengers. your "new day sunday" starts now. hey, good to have your company here on this sunday. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day sunday." we do have breaking news for you this morning. an explosion rocks a train station in russia, killing at this point we know at least 18 people. >> yeah. and the blast happened overnight at a station in the southern city of volgegard. reports are that a female suicide bomber carried out this attack. >> cnn has just obtained video of the explosion. see the center of your screen there, see the smoke out of that area there at the train station. that was at the core of that station there, victor, as i understand it. possibly near some metal detecters.
>> let's get more from cnn's diana magnay from moscow. what is the latest? what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, the death toll seems to be rising. as you said, russian state media reporting 19 dead. we're hearing that they believe it was the work of a female suicide bomber. volg volgograd is near the troubled north caucuses region, where there is a separatist struggle going on with armed militants and these black widows as they're called, female suicide bombers, have been used often. and there was an announcement by the head of the sort of chechen militant group a few weeks ago that they would try and carry out more terrorist attacks outside of the caucuses regions. and this is just weeks ahead of the sochi olympics and that is
the -- they wanted to make the olympics a nightmare for russia. >> have any groups claimed responsibility up to this point that we know of? >> not so far, no. but this is the second attack in volgograd in three months. the last time in october where there was another attack by a female suicide bomber on board a crowded bus and six people died in that attack. again, there was no claim of responsibility that time around. but this does bear all the signatures of the kind of militancy we have seen coming out of the north caucuses region. >> all right, diana magnay for us in moscow. we'll let you get back to work to get more information about this, and we'll check back throughout the morning. thank you, diana. now, here in the u.s. this morning, a nationwide manhunt for a suspected bank robber and cop killer appears to be over. phoenix police shot and killed a man saturday they believe that person is the suspect after yet
another bank robbery. here's what we know about this. on monday morning, according to the fbi, the suspect attempted to rob a bank in atlanta. and then later, that same day, the suspect drove to tupelo, mississippi, where police say he shot one officer, killed another while leaving the scene of a bank robbery there. >> so let's fast-forward to yesterday. according to cnn affiliate kph o someone noticed a man with a mask walking into a phoenix bank and they called 911. a detective responding to the scene shot and killed the suspect while he was engaged in a gunfight with a different officer. after leaving that bank. >> the suspect died there in the parking lot, right there at the scene. no one else was injured. we have on the phone with us from mississippi highway patrol officer ray hall. good to have you with us. what can you tell us about the investigation as it relates to this killing and the ending of this search in phoenix?
>> sure. you know, based on information we received, especially after the phoenix internet, the fbi agents have begun running down leads, started to see just a few things that seem to be similar and continued to track those leads. and at this time we do believe that this -- this killer is going to be connected. not only in atlanta, in the shooting in phoenix, but here may be responsible for the death or death of officer gill stafford. >> officer hall, let me ask you, there is a tupelo city spokeswoman who said multiple suspects were seen fleeing the robbery there. do you know if there is more than one person involved in this at this point? are you still investigating that? >> yeah, we -- it is still unclear at this time if this suspect may have acted alone or whether there was others. i know the officers are continuing to work, continuing
to make sure even if this is definitely comes out that this is our suspect, we would still make sure that there was no one that aided or abetted him. there is -- there was that first day, during the fog of things, a lot of different reports and we're just slowly the officers, the troopers, the agents, the fbi is leading this, been nonstop around the clock since monday. 24 hours a day, even all the way up to now as we speak, making sure that, you know, that the investigation is very thorough. >> so i just want to be clear about that element. are you -- are the other authorities actively looking for other suspects or is it still in the preliminary portion of the investigation to determine that there might have been other people involved? >> sure. i think we're definitely still in that preliminary investigation. obviously the results from the phoenix robbery and the shooting
there of the suspect, i think that's going to shed a lot more light on maybe what happened here and clear up whether or not there was one suspect or more than one suspect. >> officer ray hall with the mississippi highway patrol, thank you for speaking with us this morning. we'll follow this throughout the morning as we actually find out if this man was connected to the attempt in atlanta and, of course, the shooting and robbery in tupelo. >> a lot of people wondering how he got -- that's a pretty big stretch to get from mississippi to phoenix. >> to the west coast. >> we know phoenix police are saying at least local media reports there saying that they believe he acted alone in phoenix. so we'll keep up on that for you. this is the last sunday of 2013. >> it is. it just resonated. this is the last sunday of the year. >> i think because it is so cold outside our brain isn't working too well. >> take times to warm it up, like an old chevy, takes some time. >> look at the nasty weather so many of you are dealing with today.
that doesn't look good. >> not at all. i mean, for people in parts of north dakota, minnesota, the best bet is just stay inside. look at this. just stay indoors. they have been dealing with blinding snow and brutally cold temperatures this weekend. and the wind is making it feel even worse. and this is what drivers -- >> can you imagine. >> who venture out of north dakota and minnesota are facing. i mean, what -- >> i grew up in ohio and that's not completely, you know, that's not foreign to me. but it is still never fun. >> yeah, never dealt with this in baltimore. >> come on! >> we had snowy days, but we could see the next 15 feet. let's check in with meteorologist alexandra steele with what to expect with the end of 2013 and the start of 2014. >> we never dealt with this in miami, you know?
it is absolutely brutal. you look at those pictures and you hear the sound of that wind and that's what it is about, windchill warnings, why you need a windchill warning, this area delineated in purple. in minnesota, the dakotas, iowa, if you're walking out the door right this very moment in minot, it feels like 38 degrees below zero. feels like 37 below in fargo. these are legitimate numbers. 35 below in sioux falls. windchill warnings today through noon or 1:00 in this part of the world. we'll see windchill values about 50 below zero this morning. and then this afternoon, to about 35 below. but this is all going to abate. we're going to watch this cold air move eastward and we're going to watch these winds really begin to diminish. as we head to tonight into tomorrow morning, you can see these gusts of 34, 35, coming down. we're certainly going to lose that intensity of that brutality of the cold weather and wind. but, we're going to watch this cold air drop south and drop
eastward. so as we look toward today, minneapolis is at 2 below. straight air temperature. not the windchill. 24 below is how much colder it is than average. but watch what happens. chicago loses 20 degrees by tomorrow. and then monday, into tuesday, that's when the coldest air gets to the eastern seaboard. so burlington, new york, all much colder than it has been. this is new year's eve, mind you. cold air coming to the eastern seaboard, modifying, not the cold air we have in fargo now, but aspects of it. >> all righty. well -- >> i think of the people in times square who stand there all day -- >> just to get their seat. they're cuddled up, though. they're all so close together. it has to warm them up a little bit. alexandra, thank you so much. still to come, talk about cold. more than 70 people stranded for nearly a week. right now still in the coldest place of the world. >> two rescue trips tried to help. they haven't been successful.
well a third be able to reach them? we'll talk about it.

secretary of state john kerry is headed back to the middle east. >> leaving for israel and the palestinian territories to continue talks on the middle east peace deal. his trip comes as israel prepares to release 26 palestinian prisoners as promised last summer at the outset of the talks there. >> there is also action overnight and early sunday morning and ian joins us live
from jerusalem. we know there reports of rockets being fired from southern lebanon to northern israel and then a return back from northern israel back into southern lebanon. tell us what is happening this sunday morning. >> reporter: well, that's right, victor. there were rockets fired into northern israel. israeli's military responded with artillery fire. they also complained about this with unifil, the united nations body that oversees peace along the border between israel and lebanon. they also -- this isn't just the first incident really in the last month. this is the second incident. just earlier this month we saw a sniper, a lebanese army sniper kill an israeli soldier. israeli responded and retaliated. it has been intense but we haven't seen anything really escalate into more violence on that border. >> so how is this action
overnight suspected to -- or expected to have any impact on the peace talks that we're waiting for? >> well, the peace talks right now are really the talk of the town here in israel and in the palestinian territories. they're waiting for john kerry to come later this week. right now we're having, as you said earlier, 26 palestinian prisoners will be set free and that will happen around midnight on monday. these are men who are convicted of violent crimes, who have served over two decades. this is all part of the peace process. there is four stages going to take place, total of 104 prisoners released. this is a sign that the peace process is moving forward. although talk ing to the palestinians, one palestinian negotiator in particular resigned because he said the process wasn't moving forward. and he also criticized the united states for not being a
neutral arbiter, saying that they're more biased toward the israeli side. now, the israelis have been tight lipped on the behind the scenes activities that are going on, but with this sort of pessimism that we're seeing on the palestinian side, john kerry is going to have his work cut out for him when he meets with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. >> hopefully we'll get some statement maybe from the lebanese government to try to determine if the firing of rockets into northern israel has something to do either with these upcoming peace talks, an effort to crush those before they start, or with the additional 26 prisoners released. ian lee for us in jerusalem. thank you. >> thanks, ian. still to come this morning, with her title on the line, ufc champion ronda rousey went into unknown territory last night. >> want to know about the epic battle? we'll let you know what happened next.
we're aig. and we're here. to help secure retirements and protect financial futures. to help communities recover and rebuild. for companies going from garage to global. on the ground, in the air, even into space. we repaid every dollar america lent us. and gave america back a profit. we're here to keep our promises. to help you realize a better tomorrow. from the families of aig, happy holidays.
so you're either up very early or you're -- you missed curfew. >> these are people headed home from a good time. >> they're coming home. >> i just feel it. >> good morning, san francisco. >> a mixed martial arts champion adds to her growing legend after an epic fight in los angeles. >> you know it is good if we're calling it epic. joe carter has more on the bleacher report. >> we're talking about ronda rousey. if you don't know who ronda rousey is, you will soon. this woman is not only a great fighter, that's the total package. a marketer's dream. she has cover girl looks, chiselled abs and also a hollywood favorite already. she's going to be in two action movies coming up. despite training for six weeks because of her movie obligations, she won last night's fight. she entered the cage for a rematch against miesha tate. she beat tate last year. this time around, tate pushed
rousey further than she's ever gone before. but in round three, the champ, ronda rousey sunk in the arm bar once again for the win. rousey is 8-0 now as a professional fighter. the question after last night's game, is this the last time we'll see louisville quarterback teddy bridge water play at the collegiate level. if so, it was one of his best college games ever. the junior is considered a top pick in the upcoming nfl draft. he certainly put on a show last night for scouts at the russell athletic bowl in orlando. he passed for a career high 466 yards. he had four touchdowns, threw three touchdowns, ran for another, and the louisville cardinals absolutely crushed miami 36-9, this one wasn't much of a contest at all for louisville. trending this morning on bleacher report.com, two of the best teams in the nba scored off in portland. trailblazers, miami heat, last second shot by chris bosh, i should say, a great behind the back pass to -- from dwyane wade to chris bosh.
and i love the reaction from bosh, and i love the reaction from lebron james, not playing last night because he's a little hurt, but that obviously the miami heat, one of the better teams in the nba. great one-point win for them. today, guys, is a huge day, absolutely huge day in the nfl. we have got ten teams that are going to be fighting for four playoff spots. ten teams, four spots, and peyton manning has a chance to break two more records today, a chance to break the yards record and points record in addition to the touchdown record that he had last week. so a lot going on today. >> add it to the list. >> just starting his day. >> busy on my couch all day watching. >> good job. >> not bad. >> thank you, joe. help for passengers aboard a stranded ship in antarctica is so close, yet so far. you knew that was coming. this morning in an australian ship is en route after a chinese icebreaker was forced to just turn back. >> french ship was getting ready to go out and it never made it. the chinese ship known as the snow dragon is nearby, though.
it has a helicopter to assist aerial rescue efforts if needed. today's attempt will be the third try for the teams there. and, look, we're talking about fierce winds, icy conditions that forced, as we said, that french rescue ice breaker to call off its mission altogether. >> rosy tom sin jop >> rosy tom sin jokins us live london. what is the plan now? i understand there is a helicopter somewhere nearby if they need it. >> yes, victor. we're on to plan c or d now at this stage. we lost track. the latest ship, this australian ship, is just a couple of hours away now. we are much closer to having news, but when it gets there, we have no guarantee of what will happen because the ice may just be too thick for it to reach the russian vessel. the thickness of the ice, of course, what thwarted the efforts by the chinese and the french vessels as you mentioned. the australian ship is bigger and more powerful. it has what they call the ice rating of 1.35 meters, which
basically means it can cut through ice that thick. the reports say the ice could be 2 or 3 meters thick. so still no guarantee of what will happen when they get there. if they fail to cut through the ice, they have, as you say, this helicopter on the chinese vessel standing by. so plan a and plan b in place and they will assess the situation when they get closer, victor. >> rosie, i was reading that everybody on the ship had a great christmas, they have been there for a week. they seem to be doing just fine. are you getting any late word as to how they're doing and how long will they let that ship stay there before they would attempt any aerial rescues? >> well, there is the question of how long the ship stay and how long the people stay. they will according to the maritime authority in australia, they will get the people out today, one way or another. if they can't get the ship through they will revert to this aerial lift. whether the ship can move, that could be any amount of time depending on the conditions. in terms of spirits, though, they're having an absolute blast. i have to say.
all of them on board, scientists and tourists, who wanted to be there. they're adventurous people who wanted to be in that part of the world. they knew the kind of terrain they were going into. they're sending daily youtube updates to friends and family to say how they're doing. one of them is having a special day today. let's have a listen to her latest youtube update. >> hi, everybody. mary here from antarctica, having a wonderful time. we have this wonderful snowy wonderland. it is my birthday today. it couldn't be a better day to have a birthday with my 80 something new friends. blew out all the candles on today we have a happy birthday girl and we'll let you know what happens when the vessel reaches them. thank you so much. joo as the year draws to a close the weather could not get much worse in parts of the country.

>> this morning an explosion rocks a train station in russia killing at least 18 people. this blast happened overnight at a station in the southern city of vulgergrad. eye fema a female suicide bomb er is to blame. it went off at the core of that train station. moscow is concerned about militant groups ramping up violence there. we don't believe there is a claim of responsibility of those groups. d diana is there and we'll get more in a moment. another big story. a & e and the stars of duck
dynasty are not prepared to move on. that is after the ar remarks th he made with gq. >> we talked to new day about the conversations and the controversy that it sparked. it got people talking abo ining dynasty and about religious freedom and certain comments about gays and blacks are acceptable or not. after discussions with the robertson family as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups they decided to resume filming along with phil robertson. they were giving in the pressure
campaigns to have him brought back to the show. they could pt go away. a & e couldn't afford to lose the show. they had to figure out some way forward and it seems like this is the way to do it. >> you can catch brian at 11:00 am eastern today. >> 2014 will usher in new laws and policies in parts of the country. the ban on gay boy scouts will be lifted and gay leaders will be lifted. utah court will halt gay marriage. do you foresee that scout leaders will be allowed openly gay scout leaders will be
allowed to be a member of the organization anytime soon? >> yes, i think they will. but i think they are going to come under a restriction and that is that they can't be open and obviously gay. obviously, you know you are not foeing to see a drag queen boy scout leader. that is not going to happen. but you are going to see i think gay boy scout leaders who aren't flaunting it in an open way that will effect kids in the troop. one person may think that someone is obviously gay and doesn't belong in a leadership position and another will say no, he is acting like a normal person. when you have restrictions about being normal, i think litigation
is going to follow. >> no, i don't. because i think that earlier this year, and in the years leading up to now as the courts marriage across america, i think utah is going to find that they are going to have to change their policy. this seems to be an important social policy change in america. people are going to have to get used to it. what about colorado. it is legal in the state and it is against the federal law. what problems are we going to see january 1.
the administration has in the past cracked down on medical marijuana administration. it is illegal under federal law but now legal under colorado state law and it is going to be wide open. we are talking about recreational marijuana. you can grow your own and be able to go into a local store and buy marijuana cookies and cake and weed to smoke. it is going to be a brave new world out there.
as similar unbasins along the country. the death toll of at least 1,000 people. thank you so much for the update. we appreciate it. we want to get to beirut now. cast a car bomb struck his car bomb on friday. amid heavy security hundreds of security arrived downtown. former ambassador of the united states his bodyguard and five other people arrive friday morning. although there has been no claim of responsibility, security forces are taking no chances. to london now, where hundreds of adults spent the night at the museum. hi, rosey. a whole new take at night of the museum where the natural history
museum paid over $300 to spend the night eating live insects. and a quiet taste to be sure. it is not every day you get to spend the night spending the night under a skeleton. >> thank you so much. >> victor. i spend $300 i want something other than bugs to eat. >> hopefully they had more than bugs to eat. >> for a lot of us, the holidays are about food, family and tradition. but for veterans across the country, this time of the year can trigger symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. the holiday season can be a real challenge. to help us understand we have chuck reefs with us this morning. he is the author of a new boy of
a "boy becomes a man in vietnam". >> ptsd, part of the cure, is understanding the cause. so my book i don't understand the cure, i do understand what causes a veteran to suffer ptsd to suffer relations. so i wrote the book to help veterans put into words what is going on in their hearts and minds in what is creating this ptsd. and part of what creates it and what causes it and how it manifests itself and what are some of the triggers this season? >> first of all, the holidays are an emotional time.
it is an emotional disorder. this year we kind of got hit with a double whammy. the budget was announced in the middle of the season. the item that was put on the chopping block that is most prominent are vietnam veterans. we came home and we were not appreciated. we see a tactic like that and we were wondering where do we fit? >> when we came home, there is no such thing as ptsd. in world war ixi they used shel shocked. general pst p aatton was in tro for hissing someone with shell shock. big boys are taught don't cry, man up.
they all get compressed inside of us. when i came home the army was very proud of 24 and hout. from the time my plane landed in seattle washington. i was processed out of the milt ready to go home in 24 hours. no time to decompress. >> i want you to talk about what i think a lot of people are unaware of. the differences between ptsd for someone like yourself, a vietnam veteran and someone in afghanistan. world war ii they had time to decompress on the ship coming home. world war ii saw so it is a whole different scenario. for afghanistan their ptsd is any lessor more than ours. but they can skype or talk to their family. i had no communication with
their family at all. does that make it better or worse? does it make it manifest it more strongly. they are coming home to a different economy. they are having trouble finding jobs. all of the wars since. the ret vveteran has not been appreciated. we are trying to find out where do we fit into society. we have all of this coming up? how do we address that. from the families and friends of veterans they need to get the veteran talking. we want to make sure that we empa thighthize empathize. thank you so much for coming in. the book is "a man in vietnam" understanding the cause of ptsd. thank you, back to you. >> so insightful.

morning. 7:00 on the east coast and 4:00 on the west coast. this is "new day sunday". >> we have breaking news that we need to talk to you about this morning. an explosion rocks a train station in russia. killing at least 18 people. this happened overnight and it happens at a station in the southern city in vulger grad. do you see there the explosion that happened in the inside of that building? >> this was at the core of that train station there as we understand it near a metal detector. diana, we spoke last hour and authorities were trying to figure out who is responsible what can you tell us what has happens over the last hour as
his investigation wraps up. >> reporter: this explosion happened about three hours ago about midday, moscow time. there could be a number of causes. we are hearing that it was a female suicide bomber. some 400 mile as way in the troubled region. and we know for example that on saturday, a suspected islamist militant was there. but at the same time it is possible that this is simply a wider call to try and spread terror ahead of the olympics which are coming. it is a train hub where you would have to take the train up to moscow. we know that the black widows
have tried in the past to reach moscow and to commit attacks here. in this case as you have said a metal detector was part of the region and therefore the bomber if it was one detonated herself before she reached the metal detect or. there was that bombing in october that you talked about. and blew up a passenger bus killing six. do we know if these two are connected in anyway? again, we don't. no one claimed responsibility for that attack and no one has claimed responsibility for this attack. the most wanted man in russia who heads the militant groups has said he wants to claim the
