a petri dish. for talent. for culture. the great unknown. go look. >> bx, home again. ha-ha-ha. ^. our top stories at this hour. u.s. soldiers arrive in liberia's hard hit ebola zone as more possible cases are monitored and safety precautions are stepped up. also intrigue in pyongyang. will kym jong-il -- kim jong un make an appearance after being out of sight for weeks. and we'll get a look at the generosity of strangers in iraq.
two people are under arrest. the city has been on edge since last night when another african-american teenager was shot and kill by a white police officer. jason carroll is in st. louis, missouri for us. he joins us live via phone. we're hearing that this police officer fired 17 shots at this fleeing suspect. how does the police department there justify 17 shots? >> reporter: well, first of all they justify it in the following manner. they say what happened was wednesday night when the shooting took place with this 18-year-old, that meyers they say, fired at the officer first. that they say, that meyers actually fired three shots at the officer and the officer was then forced to return fire. and so that is why they say the shooting was justified. of course, an investigation will take place to find out exactly what happened there. in the meantime, what has
happened this evening is what we've seen is a candlelight vigil for meyers. that happen earlier this evening. and that then turned into protests demonstrations that we've been seeing going on through the evening. i'm standing in front of one right now. there are a number of st. louis police who are out here in riot gear as a protective measure. a number of protesters out here. things did turn a little bit ugly for this. some demonstrators tried to break out windows of a police car. one demonstrator at one point hit an officer in the shoulder. two arrests were made at that point. what we're seeing at this point again are a few demonstrators out here. we have those police in riot gear out here as well. they're telling demonstrators to disperse. they want demonstrators to come
out. they want the protest to be peaceful. what we have is a bit of a stand-off. we have these protesters out here and again police in riot gear as well. >> i'm looking at these pictures. so much unrest in that area. hopefully we'll get some peace there. in st. louis, missouri, we appreciate it. thank you. and now the latest developments in the ebola outbreak. the spanish nurse assistant who contracted the virus in madrid has now taken a turn for the worse. she is one of 14 people in a madrid hospital under observation and the only one so far with a confirmed case of ebola. the nation is getting more help from the u.s. military. 19 marines and airmen joined more than 300 american military personnel already there with another 700 due later on this month. the cdc director had grim words
about the outbreak on thursday, comparing it to another deadly global pandemic. take a listen. >> i will say in the 30 years i've been working in public health, the only thing like this has been aids. and we have to work now so that this is not the world's next aids. >> harsh words. some of america's biggest and busiest airports begin screening on ebola on saturday and other nations are following suit. but a cnn aviation correspondent rene marsh explains, even with these new procedures it will be difficult to identify travelers with ebola. take a listen. >> reporter: in areas hardest hit by the ebola virus, everyone departing is checked for a fever. now five major u.s. airports are about to begin temperature checks for travellers when they land here. but some experts say the new screen provides a false sense of security. >> people can take tylenol,
ibuprofen and they can mask that so this isn't a fool proof strategy. >> reporter: authorities at west african airports deny boarding to 77 people with fevers or symptoms. none of those cases turned out to be the disease. you have to remember people have fevers for lot of reasons. mr. duncan wouldn't have been identified by the temperature screening. >> reporter: the temperature checks were announced after thomas eric duncan, the first ebola patient diagnosed in the u.s. died in a dallas hospital wednesday. the cdc does not believe he had any ebola symptoms when he arrived. u.s. officials acknowledge that even with the new measures, more ebola cases could arrive in the u.s. >> i don't think we're making a claim that anything is 100% secure. what is most important is, we know. >> reporter: now authorities in england are ramping up their security procedures in two airport and canada is planning
increased screening as well. >> my goal is that we create internationally as many different checkpoints as possible for travelers who go through the system. >> reporter: meanwhile, in new york, 200 workers at laguardia's airport walked off the job following ongoing complaints they say include a lack of equipment and training. >> the ebola scare is one of the huge parts of it. this, the workers are cleaning the planes. they find all sorts of things. needles, vomit, all kind of stuff. >> reporter: the employer has a different story saying just last week, employees were briefed on new ebola protocols. the port authority has agreed to review the workers' concerns and now the workers say they'll return to work. rene marsh, cnn, dulles international airport. and passengers on a flight from philadelphia to the dominican republic were stuck on board for two hours after they landed because of an ebola
scare. local media reports a man on the u.s. airways flight. i'm quoting here, i have ebola. you're all screwed. obviously understandably people were scared. so when it handled in punta cana, a hazmat crew boarded the plane. it is not clear if he was arrested. the plane was check and given clearance. the airline apologized for the inconvenience but that it had to follow strict cdc guidelines. and there's growing criticism in spain over the case. the first person to contract ebola outside of west africa. her condition is worsening. >> september was a busy month for teresa romero. she had been caring for the missionary but a day after he passed, she decided to take some holiday. staying here in madrid in her
apartment. three days later on the 29th of september, she begins to feel ill and neighbors see a change in her. we saw her and she look a bit weak. and we thought, this lady is not well. tell me this neighbor. she waits a day and goes to a local doctor. here she tells her doctor that she's been in contact with an ebola patient. they take her temperature. but she's given the all clear and told perhaps it is a minor cold. after all, it is the beginning of the flu season. two days later, still feeling ill, she call the hospital where she work and cared for the missionaries and informs them that she is still unwell. they single her elsewhere where she is once again assessed and once again, she is sent home. according to protocol, someone is considered infected when the body temperature of the professional is higher than 36.6 degrees centigrade. we believe it was a big mistake to send her to a local hospital.
we think she should have gone straight to the third hospital. four days later she begins to feel worse. she calls the emergency services. an ambulance picks her up and drops her off at the hospital in southern madrid. >> that same ambulance drops her off here. then goes on to transport seven other patients. but it is only 12 hours later, once they have confirm that she has ebola, that they are told to disinfect the ambulance. inside the hospital she is tested but the response is shockingly slow. >> errors of protocol have only included in that doctors and workers treating the patient were not inform quickly enough if the suspected case was positive. we are talking about two hours to confirm and the second problem was the time it took when we asked for the patients transferred. there was more than an eight-hour delay. >> reporter: health care workers tell me this is a stunning series of lapse that's have been exacerbated by poor training,
substandard equipment and lax procedures only to be accentuated even further. cnn mar nmpb nmpnn madrid spain. >> a steep learning curve for a lot of countries. we'll have more on the outbreak later. the family of the first ebola patient diagnosed in the u.s. says thomas eric duncan's death could have been avoided if he was given the proper medical treatment. and the hospital where he was treated may face an investigation. also speculation about the whereabouts of north korea leader is intensifying. the communist country's ruling worker's party is its 69th anniversary but so far today, 31-year-old kim jong un has not been seen in public. in fact he's been out of the public eye for more than a month now. observers are wondering what that possibly says about his
status, particularly his health. let's get more from paula hancock who joins us live from seoul. so we're hearing that he may have been absent from the celebrations after all. how significant is that? >> reporter: there was one occasion this morning, the past two years he has actually attended. he did not attend this friday morning. this was the first ceremony of the day. it was attending at the palace of the sun which is where his father, kim jong-il and his grandfather, the founder of north korea, are embalmed. since he has taken power he has always led that delegation of military officials, of political officials and workers to go and pay respects there. now we know he did not attend that early this friday morning. we know that there was the head of the military who actually put forward a basket of flowers in his name.
it had his name written on it. so this is going to increase the speculation as to where the north korean leader is. the assumption here in south korea among many experts is that he has health issues. we heard an unprecedented comment saying that he was suffering from discomfort. so an acknowledgement that there was something wrong. something we haven't seen before. five weeks since we've seen the north korean leader. a leader who is really not shy of the camera. he is often quote and seen on camera and he is always mentioned in the state run media so it is unusual for him to not be seen in this amount of time. >> so difficult to know what's going on in a country where there is really so much secrecy. we're also hearing that pyongyang is engaging in goegss with seoul.
does that suggest that there is something different going on? >> reporter: there was a very significant meeting over the weekend. this was last saturday. the number two, number three and number four of north korea came down to seoul and it was a very last-minute meeting. it was announced very late and it is unprecedented that you would have that high a level delegation. on the face of it, it was the closing of the asian games. they did meet with political leaders here in south korea as well. they did tell the unification ministry who announced today that they gave greetings from kim jong un, telling reporters that it seemed as though the leadership was normal. so they say they had no alarm bells ringing. so this is a very interesting time, obviously, that north korea is trying to push itself forward. trying to make connections with the international community. we see cycles in north korea. that does happen every few years. but you are seeing the other
side. that there was an exchange of fire between north and south korea on disputes. as the same time they are saying we want to talk peace, there are other incidents continuing. >> and people will continue to speculate on the leader there. thank you so much. we appreciate it. okay. let's turn now to business news. this week's thomasy turvy ride for the new york stock markets continued. the dow plunged 335 points. its worst day of 2014 on a point basis. the loss of about 2% of the value. one day earlier, it was the best day of the year. as you can see, the nasdaq and the s&p also dropped roughly around 2%. analysts say that they're just as confused by the october swings as everyone else but they believe investors are worried about the health of the european
and the chinese economies. let's get a check now on the markets in asia. take a look. the nikkei is down about 1 1/3%. the shanghai composite is down half a percent taking a cue from u.s. markets. you're seeing some selling there as well. judd ahead, taking aim at isis militants at kobani. why they say things are getting worse despite help from u.s. air strikes. >> plus, a mother's desperate plea. the news about her son coming up. when folks think about what they get from alaska, they think salmon and energy. but the energy bp produces up here creates something else as well: jobs all over america. engineering and innovation jobs. advanced safety systems & technology. shipping and manufacturing. across the united states, bp supports more than a quarter million jobs.

kim jong k. u.s. air strikes seem to be doing little to stop the islamist militants. one witness says isis reinforcements have poured into the kurdish town and the terror group control one-third of the city. they launched 11 more air strike in syria and iraq. most of them near kobani. military officials say they destroyed an isis bunker and other targets in iraq. and kurdish protesters in turkey are warning of another massacre in kobani. and they want the turkish military get to involved to stop it. the country's semiofficial news agency says at least 26 people
have been kill in violent demonstrations over the past few days. turkey's president criticized the protesters thursday and what he called their acts of violence, vandalism and looting. and the mother of an american aid worker that isis has threatened to kill is appealing to the group's leader for news about her son. paul sent a tweet to the group that called itself the islamic state. >> reporter: for the family of american hostage, formerly peter cassic, it is a race against time. his mother making a desperate plea. tweeting this message to his camdenor. >> i am an old woman. he is my only child. my husband and i are on our own with no help from the government. we would like to talk to you. how can we reach you? a vain effort programs but fill with echoes of something her son
said to us two years ago. >> there is this impression, this belief that there is no hope. that's when it is more important than ever that we come in against all odds and try to do something. >> we first met peter kassig the summer of 2012 at a hospital in tripoli, lebanon, where he used his medical back ground to treat wounded syrians. back then he was just 24. driven by a burning desire to help. >> we each get one life and that's it. you get one shot at this. we don't get any doovers. for me, it was time to put up or shut up. the way i saw it i didn't have a choice. this is what i was put here to do. i guess i am a hopeless romantic and an idealist and i believe in hopeless causes. >> reporter: shortly afterwards he launched his own nonprofit delivering aid to syrians. kassig was captured on his way to deliver aid. at some point during his
captivitiering converted to islam. now going by the name. >> there is so much beyond our control. we've asked our government to change its actions. like our son we have no more control over the u.s. government than you have over the of dawn. we implore his camdptors. >> hundreds gathered at his former university including his parents to pray for his safe return but also as he would have wanted. to shed light on the plight of the syrian people. cnn, turkey. >> absolutely heartbreaking. especially when you consider the work he was doing in syria. straight ahead, for months, authorities have said, it is likely the passages on board malaysian flight 17 were killed when a rocket hit the plane over ukraine. new details are raising questions about that theory. ♪

typhoon status which is 240 kilometers per hour. that's the threshold. currently it has sustain winds of 230 kilometers per hour. that's roughly about 142 miles per hour for our united states viewers at the moment. i'm not in the business of minimizing this storm. it is still extremely powerful and we are expecting it to make landfall in the southern japanese islands near okinawa by saturday morning as an equivalent of a strong category 3 hurricane. you can see the path of the storm. at least the projected path. you can see it impacting the islands before entering kagoshima. there are some factors working for us and that is the colder waters across this area. that will help weaken this storm significantly. with you still we'll be impacted by typhoon strength winds and the possible of heavy rainfall. 100 kilometers makes all the difference with this storm.
if it makes landfall just east of okinawa, we're talking about the strongest winds remaining offshore. if it is just to the west we see the stronger win impacting the central business district of okinawa and the largest waves impacting the southeastern coastline. now this storm is taking an eerily similar path from a week ago and that dropped very heavy rainfall on the east coast of the mainland. nasa picked up on this. they have 87 millimeters per hour in this region. some impressive rainfall totals adding to that will bring the possible of flooding back to that region. also monitoring the tropical cyclone that will make landfall on the east coast of india and right near this area, that is going to impact upwards of 50 million people. the cnn world weather center
anticipates that with heavy rain and win across that region. that is all from the world weather center. >> so much to watch out for. especially typhoon vong fong. we appreciate it. ahead on cnn's special coverage. why the family of the ebola patient who died in the u.s. is so angry about his treatment. plus, also coming up. pro democracy protesters in hong kong are calling for a new rally in the next few hours. we'll get a live report from the street. padvil pm gives you the healingu at nsleep you need, it. helping you fall asleep and stay asleep so your body can heal as you rest. advil pm. for a healing night's sleep. shopping for my daughters ithat's just not enough crotch. do these shoes say "mathlete" to you?

welcome back to our viewers around the world. in the headlines this hour, more u.s. military personnel have arrived in liberia, the nation with the most ebola deaths. 90 marines and airmen handled thursday, joining more than 300 already there. initial tests indicate an australian woman who returned home after treating ebola patients in hospital does not have ebola. speculation about kim jong un is running rampant after the north korean leader apparently failed to appear today at an annual ceremonial event. the 31-year-old kim has not been seen in public for more than a month raising rumors about his colonel status, particularly concerning his health. on wall street the dow plunged more than 335 points on thursday. that's about 2% of its value. it was the biggest loss this year in material of points. the nasdaq and the s&p 500 also
saw big losses. let's look at trading in asia and australia. you're seeing a little selling, a little profit taking there as well. and britain and canada will join the united states in screening passengers whose travel originates in the nations hardest hit by ebola. jim tells us about british plans to keep the disease out of the country. take a listen. >> within the next coming days, passenger who handle here at heathrow airport and also at gatwick airport and come through on trains will be asked, how did they get here? how did they travel to the u.k.? did they come through the three western african nations where the ebola virus has really taken hold? because no passengers will fly directly from west africa here to heathrow. so they won't be able to check people who have done just one hop. many people will have gone through multiple cities to get here. so this enhanced health protection that the u.k. is implementing is to here who might have come in and poesh you
are with those who have ebola or maybe were in west africa in the last week or. so kit take 10, 15, 20 days until people present ebola so they want to carefully check these people and they want to know where they are going to go once they leave the airport. and most importantly, there will be health officials here in the u.k. airports if these people present any kind of illness. however, the health officials here and the government say nothing is 100% fool proof. they want to assure the public they are trying to find out if anybody comes into the u.k. who may be affected with ebola. cnn, heathrow airport. >> and airports across the west step up screening after the death of thomas eric duncan. and the world's largest outbreak of ebola has kill more than 3,800 people out of 8,000, plus infected, according to the world health organization. while the virus has mainly affected west aafrica, the first
ebola death in the u.s. and the first case in spain has raised fears of the virus spreading in the west. stopping the spread of ebola is a big topic at this week's meeting of the world bank in washington. the bank's president says it is vital to get more resources into the west african nations hardest hit by the virus. >> right now the conversation is very dangerous. because the only way to stop these cases from coming over is to get a fully adequate response in those three countries. and right now people are sayinger let's have more checks at the airports. this is like trying to put wet towels under your door when your house is on fire. you have to put the fire out. the fire is in these three countries. the only way to stop it is to continue to step up our response and provide humane effective care and prevent new infections in these three countries. >> that's the president of the world bank there. the family of the first person diagnosed with ebola on american soil says he died because of
bias. they say thomas eric duncan was treated differently than other ebola patients who were cared for in the united states. >> reporter: thomas eric duncan's family is left saying what if. they say they're angry that not everything was done. >> he didn't get the care. >> duncan's nephew tells "outfront" it is suspicious that all the white patients survived and this one black patient passed away. he was not given a chance. >> he came from liberia and he had all of the symptoms that were indicated. and they sent him home. >> texas officials say thomas eric duncan was treated like any other patient regardless of nationality and ability to pay for care. the hospital says it has a long history of treating a multicultural community in this area. duncan's family says the hospital took too long to give
the ebola patient experimental medicine that might have saved him. presbyterian hospital says the drug was administered soongs his physicians determined his condition warranted it and as soon as it could be object tained. but hospital officials didn't ask for permission to use the experimental drug until five days after duncan was admitted and three days after he had tested positive for ebola. >> there will be a lot of evaluations that take place. >> texas state health officials are considering a formal investigation but a top federal official says despite the initial missteps by the hospital, criticism isn't fair. >> they provided excellent medical care. i think people need to appreciate even under the best of circumstances, ebola is a very serious disease. in this particular epidemic with an overall mortality of a bit more than 50%. >> duncan died with family members unable to get anywhere near him. >> the last words that eric
duncan said were said to a nurse. she asked him what he wanted. and he said, he wanted to see his son. >> the morning duncan died, he was supposed to speak with his son over a video line. but time ran out. the call was never made. cnn, dallas. >> so many questions surrounding duncan's death. 4,000 people so far have died from the disease in west africa. switching gears, pro democracy protesters in hong kong want new demonstrations in the coming hours. this after officials canceled talks scheduled for today. the big question now is how does the movement have the energy to keep going. senior correspondent ivan watson is in hong kong. these talks have been canceled. does that mean we've reached a stalemate? where do the students go from here?
>> reporter: you can argue that the stalemate has been underway for at least a week and a half here with these types of protest encampments in downtown hong kong. there had been a lot of interpretation that the preliminary talks between the student protest groups and the hong kong government were leading to some kind of hopefully some resolution. but then the number two official in the hong kong government made this announce. on thursday evening. take a listen. >> with much regret based on the public remarks made by the student representatives over these two days, especially this afternoon, i realize the basis for a constructive dialogue between us and the students has been truly undermined. i regret that we will not be able to have a meeting tomorrow which will produce any constructive outcome. >> now, in response, the student
protest groups have stepped up their calls for a protest rally this evening. a couple of hours from now. presumably, to try to make a show of popular force to the hong kong government. they've called on demonstrators to come here to hong kong's ad myrtle district bringing tents and sleeping bags and this will be a test for the students whose numbers have dwindled over the course of the last several days to maybe 100 or 200 protesters camping out here at night. in the last hour or so we have seen a growing number of people filing through this area, taking a look at the protest signs, the banners that are here. it will be interesting to see whether or not they can muster the kind of numbers, and enthusiasm that we saw in the first week of this protest movement. >> you mention that had the
number of protesters has been dwindling. what is it going to breathe a new lease of life into these demonstrations? >> i guess we'll have to see only the whether you get those surging scene of just that sea of human annal out here. calling for democracy, repeating calls for the top official here in hong kong. for him to step down. that's been one of the demands that has been made by the demonstrators for more than a week and a half. it is a demand that has been picked up by some of the opposition legislators in hong kong's legislative council who say they're drawing up plans to try to impeach c.y. young based on the actions of the police. their use of tear gas more than a week and a half ago in this very area. but even if you get large numbers of people here again, out in this occupied stretch of
highway in the heart of hong kong, this financial hub, there is still that question, do these demonstrators represent, do they enjoy the support of a majority of residents of the city. and that's something that is a little difficult to tell right now. certainly we know that there are sectors of society here that are more and more frustrated with the inconvenience that this protest movement, that this pro democracy sit-in has imposed on the rest of society. the snarling traffic jams and some of the impact that this has had on smaller businesses here. we have not seen the sign that this is hurt the banks, the financial sector here as much as some people had warned before this occupy movement came into play here. >> right. we'll see if the number of protesters continues to grow in the coming days. live for us in hong kong. about 1:45 in the afternoon.
we appreciate it. thank you so much. >> and one of mexico's most wanted criminal has been detained. while the u.s. offered up to $5 million for his arrest. plus, depending on the kindness of strangers. refugees fleeing from isis in the iraqi camden. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee financial noise financial noise financial noise financial noise
. one of mexico's most wanted cartel leaders has been captured. mexican authorities say he faces a number of charges including drug trafficking, conspiracy, money lawnering and ordering people to be kill. the u.s. offered up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest or conviction. more now on the fight against isis militants. the world's attention may be focused on the battle. syrian town for kobani but the syrian regime is not letting up in its campaign against opposition forces. they said government aircraft, at least 25 civilians were
killed including four women and four children. this amateur video posted on social media claims to show its aftermath. and the united nations says more than 3 million people have fled syria because of the brutal civil war. when you add the unregistered refugees, that number is. higher. take a look at the number on the screen. the total number of refugees according to regional governments. 1.6 million in turkey. 1.5 million in lebanon and 1.4 million in jordan. thousands of iraqis 93ing militant are heading to baghdad looking for jobs and places to live. they again on friends and on strangers to get by. senior international correspondent ben wedeman has the story. >> reporter: a tire shop is an unlikely place to make a home but when you've lost everything, you take what you can get. the family, christians from
northern iraq, have lived here in baghdad sense june. they fled their home near mosul as isis overran the town. >> translator: my friend who owns this place told me bring your family to live here and we'll take care of the rest, he says, the father. the shop owner by the way is a muslim. 8-year-old issa rocks the cradle of his brother born in baghdad. the smell of tires permeates the room. in an an exto a mosque in northeast baghdad, 18 families about, 100 people, have also found a temporary home. they are a shia minority from northern iraq, just one of many ancient communities driven from their lands by isis. which continues to smash the complicated ethnic mosaic that was iraq into a thousand pieces.
he tells me the local community has been generous. until now we haven't had to pay for anything on it of our pockets but our lives are back there. that's where our home are. where our forefathers lived. there we have our friends, our relatives, our graves and our hand. he and his family live in a classroom in a nearby elementary school that now shelters 140 people from the north. he can't afford medicine for his ailing wife. when they arrived in baghdad, the family slept on the pavement before coming here. all we want is to go back to our home, our neighborhoods. if we could return home and be safe, we would be happy to sleep on the bare ground. thousands of people 93ing isis have come to baghdad but there are no camps, no facilities to
