watching from around the world. i'm errol barnett, with you for the next two hours. the world's biggest stories coming up. this hour, we begin with the first ebola patient confirmed in the u.s. has texas on edge right now. why some parents are temporarily pulling their children out of school. in hong kong, protesters are threatening to occupy government buildings if their demands are not met. we are approaching the deadline. we'll get you live to the scene for a report. plus an up-close look at how coalition forces and peshmerga are working together to battle isis militants in iraq. the latest information on that coming up. but first, we begin this hour with new concerns about how a texas hospital handled the first known case of ebola diagnosed here in the u.s. the country's top expert says health care workers really dropped the ball by not passing on the critical information that
this patient had just come from west africa. our senior medical correspondent, elizabeth cohen, has more. >> reporter: the family of 42-year-old ebola patient thomas eric duncan says he's in pain and hasn't eaten for a week. now in serious condition at texas health presbyterian hospital. authorities are monitoring between 12 to 18 people, including five children. they all had contact with duncan on this, his first trip to the united states. authorities want to make sure they don't develop the signs of ebola. >> the public can be assured, you're going to be safe. this virus is isolated, is being contained, will be contained. >> but there are safety questions here in dallas and in the united states. duncan arrived in the u.s. from liberia on september 20th. five days later he went to the hospital for care, but was sent home. an official saying that in response to a nurse's question,
duncan volunteered he traveled from africa. >> that nurse was part of a complex care team taking care of him in the emergency department. regretfully that information was not fully communicated throughout the full team. as a result, the full import of that information wasn't factored in to the clinical decision-making. >> two days later duncan returned to the hospital, a close friend tells cnn the hospital wasn't moving fast enough, so the friend called the cdc. the cdc directed them to the texas department of health, leading tho a phone call to presbyterian hospital. duncan was isolated and after tests, it was confirmed he had ebola. while there are questions about the hospital's handling, there are also concerned about screening at u.s. airports. a came back from liberia four
days ago. at the airport, he told officials we had been covering ebola. no one took our temperature. only i was told to monitor my health for 21 days, but no one told me what to look for. back in dallas, the children, relatives of the patient, have been advised not to go to school. >> we have custodians cleaning every day, but we're adding staff. it's not a hearty virus. so regular disinfectants is going to help. >> people cannot transmit this disease until they have symptoms. okay? and so individual that do not have symptoms are not going to transmit this disease to individuals. the chance of them transmitting it is zero. >> even with the first case of ebola diagnosed in american, the u.s. will never get to be anything like west africa where poverty and a weak health system have led to chaos and misery.
>> now, still health officials are working to trace all the people he came into contact with during his time in the u.s. some parents in the dallas area are so concerned they're keeping their children home from school. but is that an overreaction? our gary tuckman is there and filed this. >> reporter: we've learned this is where thomas eric duncan was staying during his first trip to the united states, an apartment complex in north dallas, where authorities say he may have had contact with five children. those five children, says a liberian community leader in dallas, the children of duncan's girlfriend. stanley gay says he talked to duncan's girlfriend. >> they are home. they are doing well. >> the children as well? >> the children as well, are doing fine. again, all she asks is for her prayers. >> the five children go to four different schools in the neighborhood. the sam tazby middle school is
one of them. >> i got scared. >> natalie heard on the news that at least one of those children who could have been exposed to ebola went to her son and daughter's school. so she came early to pick her children up. >> got scared because i thought that the kid came to the school and probably got contact with him. i know it doesn't get contact by the air, but you never know. >> all five of the children who may have had contact with the man diagnosed with ebola, are now staying out of school. but many have been told those children were in school on monday and tuesday. maria has a son and daughter in another one of the four schools. >> i'm scared and worried. i'm worried for my son and my daughter and me. >> more than 3,500 children are enrolled at these four schools, so there are a lot of concerned families. nobody can offer any guarantees. but the school district has told
parents the children are not in imminent danger. >> all four schools are being cleaned and sanitized over the next several days, but they will remain open. students say they were given a piece of paper in school that explains it in english and spanish. it says we're made aware that a student in your school may have had contact with an individual with the ebola virus. does that worry you? were you scared? >> yes, and i don't feel like going to school tomorrow. >> i want to tell you, you don't need to be scared, the person in your school doesn't have ebola. they were just near someone who had it. so you don't have to worry, okay? >> okay. >> daisy and betsy are fourth graders who are twins. when you heard about this ebola stuff, what did you think? >> we got scared. >> you're twins and you talk at the same time. but are you okay now? >> yes. >> they're taking good care. the students here didn't have ebola, you know that, right? >> yes. >> so you're coming back to school tomorrow? >> yes.
>> authorities say the schools will operate as normally as possible the rest of the week. >> gary tuckman trying to calm down families there in texas, but you know, folks in the united states are lucky there are resources to tackle it. the world health organization says there are more than 3,300 suspected deaths from ebola in west africa. more than 7,000 cases here and you don't have as many first-world resources to tackle this. as you look closely at this map, you'll see the majority in liberia. that's where thomas eric duncan said he was traveling from. nearly 2,000 people have died in this west african country. guinea and sierra leone have also been hit hard and a handful of ebola cases are reported in senegal and nigeria, as you can see. another big story we're following for you, the hong kong protests. the prodemocracy demonstrators
have issued an ultimatum. even as the protests continue, the crowds continue to grow, beijing says, it's actually confident that they can handle all of this. for more on china's view, the vice minister of affairs spoke with us. >> translator: i think the occupy central movement is the hong kong version of street politics and color revolutions we've seen in other countries. it's very dangerous. it's an obviously illegal movement. it has caused great harm to hong kong in the past few days. democracy and the rule of law are the pillars of economic prosperity and social stability in hong kong. occupy central has attacked both pillars. >> let's check the mood on the streets of hong kong now. andrew stevens joins us live,
next to some of the many symbols of the demonstration, yellow ribbons, umbrellas are a symbol. correct me if i'm wrong, about ten hours away from this ultimatum the demonstrators have set. threatened to flood government buildings if the chief executive doesn't resign. what's the mood now? >> that's right. it is about ten hours, but it's not a hard and fast deadline, we should point out. they said within 24 hours. but certainly by friday morning, the deadline will well and truly have passed. but the mood is still one of defiance. the crowds are starting to build again. we're in front of the central government offices, where the protesters initially tried to get in on sunday night, which led to the police responding with tear gas and pepper spray. if you look lithrough the bars, you can see a police presence, but not a big police presence, and there is quite a crowd now
starting to gather around here. this has become the hong kong wall of shame, and citizens have been coming along and putting up various signs. this one, talking about the police, asking them not to injure fellow hong kongers. open this gate, open this gate, to another chinese sign here. this one, quite poignant, tear gas only makes hong kong cry harder. so this is where, if there is to be a confrontation, it may well happen, because this is where it happened before, it's very much a symbol of the hong kong government. i want to bring in a former chairman of hong kong's democrat party, a staunch supporter of these protests, obviously for political reasons. my first question to you, is, do you think students and protesters should go up once against the government, to try to occupy a building, forcing a
potentially dangerous confrontation? >> well, i don't think the situation would become more dangerous, because all the participants, i hope, in fact, they have promised to continue to abide by the principle of non-violence. >> but by the very fact that they're going to try to occupy a building, that is an aggressive action? >> no, i think they were going to just try to set up a blockade over here. whether or not that can be successful, i don't know. but obviously, i think, and i hope everybody will still continue to abide by this policy of non-violence. it's unlikely they would be able to storm into the building. i don't think they can. >> there seems to be a divide now, perhaps about what the actual end game should be in these protests. one of the occupy hong kong leaders is saying, we would be
satisfied if the hong kong leader resigned. others are saying, we want to go to see a change of stand in beijing. what do you think is achievable here? >> i think a precedent. the students leaders who have been pioneering this movement, of course they have to stand very firm on the two demands. resignation of the leader, and rejection of the national people's position with regard to political reform in hong kong, which has been denied hong kong's right to true democracy. i think they know and they appreciate that there must be other people seeking to achieve something for the time being, so that they can claim a temporary victory and retreat with dignity, to enable us to buy more time. >> so is this splintering this
protest? >> no, but i think it's very, very dynamic, very complex. there may be different voices. but there's one thing most important. the people outside, they are impressively restrained and reasonable. they are not listening to hate of any people. telling them, you go, and then they will go. you stay, and they will definitely stay. they are sensible, they listen to reasoned persuasion. none of them can dictate the crowd. some people will try to get through. on the other hand, the leaders on the stage, on the front stage, they would stand up firm and with courage, and let's see what can happen. there must be promise that there will be reveal of the position.
that is another necessary condition. >> albert, thank you for joining us, former chair of the hong kong democratic party, and a lawmaker here in hong kong. where we stand at the moment, still several hours away from any sort of action, but the crowds are growing. this was a public holiday. this protest was begun by students, but has been joined by many people in hong kong, from many, many walks of life. we could be heading towards a confrontation, as albert ho suggests, different factions in this protest want different things. so over the next 24 hours or so, it's going to be a critical time in the evolution of this protest. back to you. >> and he said there, this is complex, it's dynamic, things are calm and peaceful now. but as you mentioned, things could change at any moment. andrew stevens, thank you for that. meantime, beijing says all of this, these demonstrations in hong kong, they are an internal
matter. remember, hong kong, a part of china, but a special region. beijing saying foreign involvement in what's happening here isn't welcome. still u.s. secretary of state brought up this on wednesday before his meeting with the chinese foreign minister. >> one of the issues that we'll discuss today, no doubt, is the situation in hong kong. and as china knows, we support universal suforage in hong kong, according with the basic law. we believe in open society, with the highest possible degree of autonomy and governed by rule of law is essential for hong kong's stability and prosperity. we have high hopes that the hong kong authorities will exercise restraint and respect the protesters' rights to express their views. >> secretary kerry mentioned hong kong. the chinese government has very
firmly and clearly stated its position. hong kong affairs are china's internal affairs. all countries should respect china's sovereignty, and this is also a basic principle governing international relations. >> we will keep you posted on what happens in hong kong throughout the day. still to come for you here on cnn, the world's biggest stories. kurdish and coalition forces teaming up to take down isis. we'll show you how they're faring in two key towns. one of them in syria has been under siege for weeks. the other in iraq just had its hospital blown up, and the kurds say, that's actually cause for celebration. we'll explain after this.
welcome back, everyone. the u.s. and his allies carried out more air strikes against isis on wednesday. take a look at this map. these air strikes took place near the key city of kobani, there in the center of your screen, to help kurdish forces push back the militants. now, a kurdish official tells cnn that neither side gained any more ground over the past day. the extremists have been trying to capture kobani for weeks now. most of its residents have already fled to turkey.
meantime, next door in iraq, where the pentagon says the latest air strikes destroyed fighting vehicles in positions near mosul, baghdad, and the haditha dam. they're bringing three more fighter jets and a warship. britain carried out its third day of targeting as well. j >> reporter: these kurdish forces have rabia surrounded, as they wait for the final push, they can hear coalition fighter jets in the sky. ahead of them is a ghost town, deserted, apart from one building. a hospital where islamic state militants are still hiding out.
then, as we watch, this. two missiles appear to hit. rabia, captured by jihadists in june, and their main supply route to syria, has fallen at least. >> these kurdish fighters are delighted at the spectacle which has unfolded before them. they say that the hospital over there was the last building to fall in rabia, and that they can now advance, assuming there are not booby traps left by jih jihadists on the roads ahead of us. and these are roads we dare not take, for the casualties have been high. this man was shot dead by a jihadist sniper. three islamic state suicide bombers blew themselves up here
yesterday. no wonder they look nervous. for the militants are leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. their self-declared caliphate not giving up without a fight. >> translator: they hate everybody. they are against humanity. they are against kurds and arabs. they're wild men. >> reporter: in the surrounding villages, the militants have destroyed almost everything. a scorched earth policy. in as the jihadists retreat from town to town, iraqi troops say they will be forced into urban warfare to flush them out. today's victory was made possible by coalition air strikes, but this is just one battle with many more to go. channel 4 news, rabia. >> and now we really want to show you what coalition and iraqi forces must overcome. just a short while ago, isis released these images from their
attack in anbar province. isis claims to have killed 300 iraqi troops in the onslaught beginning september 20. isis also claims it destroyed 65 iraqi military vehicles during the siege, and seized 37 others. the base is still under control of the extremists. and we have this information just into cnn. baghdad police say a car bomb blast has killed at least 14 people. 51 were wounded according to officials. this happened late wednesday night on a busy commercial street in a neighborhood known as new baghdad, just outside of baghdad. that section of the iraqi capital is predominantly shi'ite. officials say several shops and nearby vehicles were damaged in that explosion. we got to warn you here, some of the images you're about to see may disturb you. the united nations is condemning
an attack on a school in syria that killed at least 48 people. [ screaming and chaos ] >> you can see and hear the sheer terror. this was the second of two explosions outside the school. an explosives packed car blew up before a suicide bomber detonated his advice. it's said 41 of the victims are children. reports say the attack happened right when students were leaving class for the day. u.n. secretary-general ban ki-moon called this an act of utmost depravity. the head of the u.s. secret service has resigned. we'll get reaction from the white house and others, straight ahead. she's still the one for you.

financial noise financial noise financial noise welcome back, everyone. the man accused of jumping a fence and bursting into the white house with a knife has pleaded not guilty to a variety of charges. a federal judge ordered additional mental testing, though, on omar gonzalez to determine whether he's competent to stand trial. he'll remain in custody until his next court date, october 21st. you're seeing some of the security footage there when the 42-year-old iraq war vet made it all the way, you're seeing his journey, all the way into the white house to the east room before he was stopped by secret service. it really is a stunning security
lapse. neither president barack obama, nor the first family were home though, at the time of the incident. still this security lapse, as well as many others, has prompted the head of the u.s. secret service to resign on wednesday. julia pierson said it's in the best interest of the secret service for her to now leave. in another incident, a security contractor who wasn't screened, but was armed with a gun, shared an elevator with mr. obama. >> derek van damme has the latest on the weather. what do we have? >> we have actually three severe thunderstorm watch boxes to discuss at the moment. one across central south nebraska. this is the one we're paying close attention to. quite a strong line of thunderstorms running parallel along interstate 80 and lincoln, nebraska.
a few watch boxes near missouri and kansas. you can see the storms are moving quickly, around 60 miles per hour. we'll watch out for this severe weather, as a low pressure continues to deepen across that region. that's going to shift our chance of severe weather eastward across the united states, over the next 24 on to 48 hours. we have summer along the east coast and autumn, winter time for the northern plains and into the midwest. with the temperature clash, the possibility of severe weather into thursday. 34 million people under threat for a slight risk of large hail, severe winds and can't rule out the possibility of a tornado as well. from chicago, dallas, and laitte rock. some of our computer models are showing a chance for snow near minneapolis, minnesota. i'm from the midwest. i like to see red this time of
year on your weather maps. we're talking about a 10 to 15-degree celsius temperature drop for the next three days. from thursday to saturday for chicago, also known as the windy city. 20 degrees fahrenheit, below average for this time of year, only expecting a day time high of 50. that's cold stuff. 10 degrees celsius. that's all we got from the world weather center. back to you. >> i know you joined us from south africa, but you're from michigan. >> from grand rapids, used to the cold, but not that cold. >> so is it a bit early to get snow at this point in the year? >> very unusual. we don't usually see that for another couple weeks. >> thanks for that. coming up, more on the pro democracy movement in hong kong and why protesters are turning their anger toward their current leader. plus, months after a south korean ferry sank killing hundreds, ten bodies have yet to be retrieved. why so long for the wait?

welcome back to our international viewers. hey, what's up to those of you watching in the states? i'm errol barnett. u.s. officials are looking into how the first case of ebola in the u.s. was handled by hospital workers in texas. this man was initially sent home from a dallas emergency room, even though he told medical staff he'd traveled from liberia. >> i was not surprised. you know, we live in such a small world that it's very easy
to travel from one country to another. and so it doesn't me by surprise. i'm very thankful that he's here and that he can receive medical care and that our doctors know what they're dealing with. >> more headlines for you now. authorities have finished investigating the fatal shooting of unarmed african american michael brown by a white police officer. it's now up to a grand jury to decide if the officer, darren wilson, will be criminally charged in the shooting. a decision is expected by mid november. n at least three afghan soldiers are dead after a suicide bomber attacked their vehicle. the taliban has claimed responsibility. >> let's take a look at some live pictures -- maybe not. prodemocracy demonstrators say -- there are we are. are these live?
yes, these are live from hong kong. demonstrators say the chief executive must step down or they'll escalate their protests by occupying government buildings. many have moved their protest to just outside his office. jonathan mann explains the target of the students' anger. >> some of the protesters depict their chief executive as a vampire. others liken him to hitler. but who is he? he was one of two primary candidates put forward by the chinese government in the 2012 election. beijing favored his opponent for the job. but tang's campaign was embroiled in scandal and beijing shifted loyalties. he won the election easily with 689 votes from the election committee. he also won the nickname 689 from protesters mocking how the
votes of just 689 people decided the leadership of a city of seven million. >> the law says his job is to serve the chinese government and the people of hong kong, making his role a balancing act at best, and that of a lame duck at worst. his supporters value his working class background and property-buying policies, but these days, protesters have the louder voice, and they're demanding something bigger than his removal. true democracy. >> now, joining us with more perspective on this is the director on the center of china's transnational relations. thanks so much for joining us on cnn today. just to recap, things have been relatively calm since the weekend. tear gas was used then. officials pulled back. but now, these demonstrators are demanding that leung step down. they're threatening to flood the
government buildings. are you worried about what could happen next? >> sure, i'm very worried. i'm worried that if the students decide -- if he doesn't step down and the students decide to go over the wall, they will be met by police, and i assume they will be met by some police force. the best thing from my perspective would be that the police barricade this place so well, the students decide they can't do it. but andrew stevens interviewed josh wa long, student leader and he said they intend to get in there tonight. the question is, can they do it peacefully? he said they will, but how do you do what when the police are standing there and say you can't do it? >> if you can hear me -- >> i hear you, i hear you. >> what do you make of where this can go? it's a real stalemate. some are saying the possible
compromise could be that the chief executive step down. do you think that is the most likely compromise here? or do you think a face-off with police and officials is more likely? >> well, i think the students have to be careful. i think the students have to be careful because overtime, they will lose some of their support. my own sense is that the heroism of the students, as the people of hong kong saw it. the tear gas galvanized tens of thousands of people to come down, giving the students a cushion to push their views. but if they drag this on a long time, and i think that's the strategy of the central government and local government, if they drag this on, i think a lot of people who were just there because they cared what was go on, they'll lose their support and the students will find themselves a lot more isolated. >> and the protest leaders had
said they had a goal of at least establishing this demonstration and protest for a week. it's been quite successful, as far as a mass of people sending a peaceful -- >> they've had their week. >> yes, they have had their week, but they're now sending a powerful message to beijing. how do you think china is receiving all of this? >> well, i agree with you. i think china's receiving this with a high degree of concern. they don't want to see this spilling over to other cities. they're worried about hong kong being a location where foreign governments, particularly the united states and great britain, can use these forces to create greater trouble for china. and they look at this maybe in the context of sin jong in central asia. there's problems in tibbett. so they see this in a broader context and i'm sure it makes them nervous. what we were getting to before, i'm not a student activist,
though i was in the '60s. i think the students should say, we won this battle. we really showed that we can take over the city, let's back off before this gets violent. because a lot of us worry that this will get violent. if it does, that's not good for anybody. it's bad for beijing, it's bad for the city of hong kong and the cities of hong kong. >> you're essentially saying the students have succeeded. they have successfully sent this loud and clear message, but you're saying now is the time to pull back so it doesn't become violent and things turn a separate direction? >> that's easy for me to say, because i don't have the students behind me. so you've also got to think about the student leaders who are feeling enormous pressure not to back off without some gain. you know, they've got to have some concrete gain, that's why we started this discussion with c.y. long stepping down because that would be a concrete gain for the students. but it doesn't really solve the problem of democracy here in hong kong. i think that's the longer term
issue, and i think that's what the students see as the longer term issue, to really hold on, take some hits if they have to. sounds like josh iua was willin to go back to jail, willing to take some hits to keep this democracy alive. they don't want to grow up in the society they see on the mainland. they want a free society, and they worry about that. >> they've sent that message very loud and clear. we were just listening to the director of china's transnational organization. thanks so much for your time. we'll see you again here on cnn. now, months after south korea's deadly ferry sinking, ten bodies still have yet to be retrieved. the families say there's plenty of blame to go around and they're demanding action from the government. paula hancocks has more. >> caller: it's close to six months since south korea's worst
maritime disaster in recent years, and for many people, they are still living the horror of that day. this is the headquarters of the search operation. you can see a make shift memorial has been set up here. every yellow ribbon represents a player or a message of support to the relatives and their victims. 417 people were on board the ferry, heading to the holiday destination of jay ju island. the ship sank, taking 300 people. most of them high school students on a field trip. to add to the pain of losing a child, or losing a loved one, ten of those bodies have yet to be found. now, those families are refusing to leave this area. eight of them are in a nearby auditorium, living there. two of those families still living here at the port, refusing to leave until their loved ones have been found. divers are still going to the bottom of the yellow sea to try to find the victims, but at this point, nothing. this is where the bodies were
brought ashore in the weeks after the disaster and also the tends where the families had the grim task of having to identify their loved ones. but no one has been brought ashore since july. it's been more than two months since the last victim has been found. when i asked the families who they blame for the disaster, they say they blame the government, the shipping industry, and also the coast guard for not having saved more lives as the ship went down. if you look at the facts, the ship was overloaded with tarcar. it was not tied down properly and it was government checks that allowed this ship to sail. back in the capital, some families and their supporters have been protesting here for months, calling for an independent investigation into what exactly happened. but there's always been months of arguing and bickering between the main political parties and also some families about what that investigation should look like. it's crippled the political system here in south korea. some progress has been made this
week, but not before damage has been done. a dysfunctional parliament for so many months means there's now thousands of draft bills waiting to be considered. paula hancocks, cnn, seoul. >> there's unusually blunt criticism from the united states over reports israel has moved ahead with plans for settlements in east jerusalem. >> we are deeply concerned about reports that the israeli government has moved forward the planning process in the sensitive area in east jerusalem. this step is contrary to negotiating with the palestinians and it would send a troubling message if they proceed with tenders or construction. >> also the white house says president obama privately expressed concern over the 2600-home project to israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the two leaders met wednesday at

all right, let's look at what's happening in asia now, a typhoon is heading toward japan. derek joins us once again. i understand there's a discrepancy on when this thing will hit depending on which track you watch. >> that's correct. i think you could take my job. >> let me explain, there's the -- no, i'll allow you, go ahead. >> japan has been in the news but for all the wrong reasons. last week the volcanic eruption at mt. ontake. now 195 kilometer per hour winds. category three, this is the track, the projected track of this particular storm, notice we have tokyo and the west half of
japan smack dab in the middle of this cone of uncertainty. it indicates the storm will intensify, based on a couple different factors. mainly a troth that's going to drop south out of northern china. and that timing is going to either draw it further east of japan or allow it to make landfall on the west half of the country. this is the european model. we like to compare the trajectories of the storm. one has it coming over the western half on monday. the other has it moving further to the east, impacting parts of tokyo, but that would be sunday evening. we'll be updating you in the next couple days. that's all from the weather center. back to errol. >> all right, derek, thank you very much. now, it was called a hospital for all nations, the immigrant hospital at ellis island off new york city was where hundreds of thousands of

ward, to the children with a suspected scalp disease. the photographs are really the only thing that's changed here in the last 60 years. everything else is basically as it was left in 1954. even this, the old auto clafe, the original machinery used to sterilize mattresses. >> this is the morgue. bodies were stored in these rerefrigerated units here. this was a teaching hospital. >> it's here the emotion of working in this place starts to show. >> this was -- okay, how do we make it better? if they didn't care, they didn't have done it. >> how many people died at ellis island? >> 3500 people. >> less shocking when you consider the millions who were
treated here. 355 babies were born here. ultimately the facility did achieve its goal, to protect the public health of the united states. >> there was no epidemic that really stemmed from here, no. this played a very big role in screening immigrants. so that these kind of diseases could not get into the country. >> those deemed fit enough to enter the u.s. are the ancestors of an estimated 40% of americans today. claire sebastian, cnn, on ellis island. >> incredible. we'll be right back after this.
