12:00 am
i'm greatle for shar saya for sr story. i hope i will see sara again. the world health organization under watch for its handling of the ebola outbreak from the outset. new concerns about what was done when. coalition airstrikes in kobani slow the advance of isis fighters. why some kurds are staying put despite the dangers. also ahead here, shrouded in mystery, this unmanned space plane returns to earth nearly two years later. and hello and welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world, i'm natalie allen, we
12:01 am
begin this hour with a scathing report from the world health organization and how the ebola outbreak was handled. an internal document said that the agency's initial response was botched and riddled with incompetence. nic robertson has more. >> the world health organization says that this was an internal report and had not been fact checked. but the results are like this, ebola had first been discovered in march in guinea, and doctors without borders said this was unprecedented. the same day, the w.h.o. spokesperson said the numbers were typical of what they had seen before. it was not until the 8th of august that the w.h.o. announced that this was an international disaster.
12:02 am
now, i spoke with the doctor who is the director of the w.h.o. of their global response unit. and what she told me was that more could have been done. she wished that more had been done because she said more is important. but she also said that in the early stages they didn't have a diagnosis for ebola. that it was very, very difficult to get information from west africa. and she also said that when the w.h.o. put out a request for volunteers to go to west africa to treat ebola, she said there was a huge fear factor. volunteers were not forthcoming in big numbers. this also contributed to the escalation of the ebola crisis. she said ebola was striking fear in people's minds. >> nic robertson reporting there for us. the w.h.o. meanwhile warns that another country could face a potential ebola outbreak. the group says that the ivory
12:03 am
coast is at risk of having the disease spill over from neighboring countries. social workers there are going door the door to teach people how to protect themselves. >> reporter: for every illness there are measures to take to stop it. but with ebola it is much more difficult because it touches their culture. >> ivory coast shares the border with guinea and liberia which has seen the highest rates of death. the disease has killed 4500 in west africa. and in spain, we expect the update on the condition of the nurse, teresa ramos, who contracted the disease while in liberia treating a missionary with the disease. what do we know about her condition now? >> reporter: hi, natalie, well, officials say there have been a number of tests, almost daily on teresa ramos who is in this hospital behind me. and the good news is, it is
12:04 am
showing the amount of the ebola virus in her blood is diminishing. now we expect as possibly as early as this day, there could be a test that people hope will show definitely she is cleared of the virus. now, we will not get the results until monday, if in fact that is what they show. we're here at the two-week point since she has been in the hospital. the three-week point since she got feverish. but other medical professionals didn't realize she had it. so it took a week, two weeks ago until october 6th she got the test and was rushed up here. there was a lot of controversy on why it took so long. but now that she is here, they are trying to save her life, fighting strongly, because she was part of the medical team that helped. >> what about the other suspected cases there in spain
12:05 am
now? >> reporter: well, as in the united states anybody who has been in contact with her basically had to go under observation. so in spain, overall, mainly in madrid, 87 people in observation now. now, most of them, 67 of them are at their homes, temperatures taken, being visited by medical personnel, not showing any symptoms. here in the hospital, teresa ramos is on the sixth floor. two other people rushed in on thursday are also on the sixth floor. they thankfully tested negative on the first test. and one floor below them are 15 other people including doctors at that other hospital where she got her ebola confirmed had checked in here, not to be close to their families. they're waiting out their isolation, her husband is also there. of those 15, no symptoms. encouraging signs right now, one
12:06 am
of the people rushed in on thursday tested negative twice and was released on saturday. >> all right, so just one confirmed case there in spain but many people being watched. al goodman, there in spain, thank you, al. the cruise ship with the passenger linked to the first ebola patient diagnosed in the u.s. is expected to return to the u.s. shortly. the country of belize would not let the passenger off the ship. and as alex field reports it became a difficult issue. >> reporter: a carnival ship is set to dock in galveston, texas, the itinerary cut short because of the concerns of ebola. one passenger remains quarantined in the cabin, showing no sign of the virus. the cruise staff has monitored. >> there are people who have a possible of it. >> reporter: so the passenger was never in direct contact with
12:07 am
thomas eric duncan, the liberian national who died from ebola at texas health. but she works in the lab in dallas that treated him and may have handled a specimen from him. plans to get her off the ship earlier were scrapped when belize's government denied a request from the state department. secretary of state john kerry had personally appealed to them to allow the passenger on a private plane out of belize's airport. >> we probably feel it could have been handled differently. we're focusing on the ship en route to galveston. >> reporter: a scheduled trip was changed, coming back to the u.s. port. the belize government put out a statement saying it regrets it was unable to facilitate a request. this was issued out of an abundance of caution.
12:08 am
alexandria field, cnn, new york. >> it will be interesting to see what the other passengers on board that cruise ship had to say about their cruise cut short. i'm certain we'll talk to them when they're back in texas. and syrian kurds, some refuse to cross over despite the threat of being killed by isis. plus, new attacks by boko haram in nigeria may complicate efforts to free the kidnapped school girls. we'll get more just ahead.
12:09 am
12:10 am
12:11 am
welcome back, in syria, coalition airstrikes are helping kurdish fighters in kobani take on isis. many kurds who fled the battle are just south of the turkish border. some are afraid they will never be able to return home. >> reporter: 60 bombs in four days, may for now have ground isis to a halt in kobani. but to the city's west lies another trauma for those kurds still inside, at a hole poked by the desperate in the fence, it
12:12 am
is now policed by the military. strangely, even though the turkish army will let them across, many still don't. why do they stay there? there is still fighting inside kobani and this is a very volatile place to be stranded on that border. we're told those there don't want to leave their city or positions because they're worried if they across into turkey they will not be able to return home. we filmed discreetly a little closer, when bread was delivered. the men there said there were thousands inside, many we spoke to said they were not leaving their treasured homes and cars as they knew the army would not let them back in. this man came back two days ago to bring back food but can't cross. where do you think people can find bread inside there, he says, the stores are closed and
12:13 am
empty. some claim this is a calculated strategy that turkey is deliberately stopping people from going back in a bid to weaken the defense of kobani, claimed one turkish/kurd mp. if they turn back to kobani the resistance against isis will be stronger and our combat against isis will be efficient, turkey doesn't want that. turkey wants kobani to fall. we're convinced about that. there is no other reason, fighters are still smuggled in, we're told, and turkish officials still deny people returning. but if the fight drags on, or isis come back, kurdish anger at what they see as turkey's bid to weaken them is growing. nick payton walsh. and iraq has filled out critical government roles aimed
12:14 am
at pushing the terror group back. seven cabinet ministers were appointed by the iraqi parliament saturday including defense and interior. those positions had been left vacant when nouri maliki was prime minister. it is the first time iraq has had a full cabinet since 2010. in nigeria, renewed hope for the 200 kidnapped school girls, the group says they reached an agreement with the terror group, boko haram. but as cnn reports, this supposed truce has many skeptical. >> they say they will meet with members of boko haram on the details. they say what to expect, this will be a staggered protest,
12:15 am
with a faction of girls released, rather than the whole amount. presumably what boko haram gets is the exchange of prisoners. they have taken prison many, the boko haram operatives and also the family members of militants. as to this cease-fire, the nigerian government says it is already in place in the northern states where the insurgency has been raging and many displaced and thousands killed. but from local sources we heard yesterday alone on friday there were three separate incidents where gunmen believed to be boko haram raided villages, kidnapped some and abducted women and children. perhaps the message has not filtered down to the others in the village. but again we have not heard from boko haram about this supposed
12:16 am
deal, or at least from a trusted source to represent the group. cnn in nigeria has also spoken to the parents of the school girls, who express cautious optimism about the girls. they say after six months where they heard very little they don't hold much faith in goodluck jonathan's attempt to broker a deal. he is about to renounce his bid to run for president in february. and of course, he needs the release of these girls to boost his popularity. 16 people died during an accident at a concert in south korea, and the man charged with safety for that event has been found dead of an apparent suicide. the prime minister toured the scene of the accident saturday, the same day the body of the 37-year-old safety official was found. police believe he jumped to his
12:17 am
death. it was friday when concertgoers plunged some four stories after a ventilation grate they were standing on gave way. and we're expecting a news conference from hong kong police in about an hour, right now things are expected to be quiet here. this video from reuters shows the sign right by the government building. earlier there were clashes for the second straight day. that is where police conducted a raid friday before some of the demonstrators fought back. and rescuers in nepal, after a blizzard, why one hiker says the tragedy could have been avoided. also here, a catholic summit wraps up in rome, but questions remain about the church's stance on divorce and gay and lesbians.

12:21 am
>> the people have been led to their death unnecessarily. and the systems and processes that are in place have contributed towards those people dying. and i feel really, really sad that those people have died and that the people are still missing. and not only that, there are people that are injured. and this could have been prevented. >> one of the world's leading high altitude climber says the weather was only one of the factors that led to the disaster. >> i think it is one of the key questions, is the freak storm as many people have been caught in this. perhaps was not as freakish as we are led to believe. this storm cycle tends to cause a number of weather incidents. the u.s. had predicted this before they hit certain regions. so i think it would be foolish of us to think it is just the
12:22 am
weather system that caused this disaster. but from my experience, looking at it from afar, i have no doubt that there are a number of factors which have contributed to this disaster. i think there is potentially poor leadership, very bad decisionmaking. and also a misunderstanding by some of the trackers that were there, perhaps they were not quite as equipped as they should have been. perhaps they were misinformed. >> well, tourist officials say more than 90,000 people trekked through this particular mountain pass last year, it is quite popular. and typically october is a mild month for hiking but apparently this freak storm that many saw coming changed conditions very quickly. so let's check in with the current conditions there, now, as rescue crews continue to search for missing hikers, derek
12:23 am
van dam has more. >> yes, that is right, tens of thousands of hikers flock to this area this time of year. the month of october, because usually the weather patterns are the most favorable for climbing those massive 7,000 meter peaks. and this is the weather pattern that we're experiencing right now, very calm and tranquil conditions across the himalayas and nepal, you can see the weather forecast for kathmandu is actually average for this time of year and bright sunshine from sunday right through to monday. now, don't forget that the snowfall and snowpack that fell from the remnants, we get sunshine and start to stabilize that snowfall. so we do run the risk of having further avalanches from the snow that did fall last week. so obviously rescue efforts there need to keep a very close eye on that situation.
12:24 am
when hudhud made its way through, it presented about 30% of the month average, so certainly significant snowfall for this time of year which we wouldn't normally see. i'm going to switch gears across the northern half of europe. cold front after cold front impacting the british ailes, you can see the storm system turning across oslo, norway. and the cold front is bringing quite a bit of wet weather across much of scotland, ireland and the u.k. i just want to point something out. this is actually the remnants of hurricane gonzalo, still turning across the atlantic, actually expected to race across the atlantic and impact the british isles into tuesdaynd wednesday. so we'll watch this closely. we're anticipating from the series of cold fronts and then eventually the remnants of
12:25 am
gonzalo as it moves through, the gusts 70 to 80 kilometers. there are remnants of gonzalo picking up the winds monday and tuesday, across the u.k. winds gusting in brussels as well as paris. that is all from the weather center. and you were in paris recently? >> i was, we had good weather, thank goodness we beat gonzalo. and catholic bishops at a two-week summit in rome, the bishops could not come to a consensus on whether divorced and remarried catholics should receive holy communion. they also could not agree on what gay and lesbians could offer the church. pope francis suggested a summit

welcome back to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world, i'm natalie allen, you're watching cnn and in our headlines this hour coalition airstrikes hit isis positions in the syrian town of kobani saturday. a syrian fighter says they're trying to flush out the militants. it has been a difficult task in the past few weeks, isis has been trying to capture and hold kobani for sometime. at least 39 people are dead after a fierce snowstorm hit a popular hiking area in the himalayas. more than 39 people have been rescued, and the rescue crews hope to find more survivors. the storm hit tuesday in nepal. and the world health organization says they will try

to change practices with the ebola virus after a scathing review said the initial response was botched and riddled with incompetence. and canada is the latest country stepping in to help in the ebola crisis. starting this monday the government plans to ship 800 vials to the world health organization in geneva, the drugs will be distributed in the worse-affected countries. meanwhile, president obama may ask congress for additional funding to help the outbreak, the u.s. government has spent nearly a billion dollars to stem the disease in west africa. finding a vaccine is the top priority for researchers in the united states. bring todd got rare access to one facility outside washington where the race is on. >> we've known about the ebola virus now for 38 years, but up until now no vaccines have been
12:32 am
available for public use. well, right now outside here with the army in washington they are testing the vaccine for the first time on humans. an urgent need to find a vaccine for ebola. in this u.s. army lab, the vials like this contain the race. this is one of two vaccines being tested in the u.s. for the first time on humans. >> can the vaccine here being used to stop the spread of the outbreak. >> this is used for the regulatory pathway. right now we have to establish it is safe. >> right now, we were given access to the army institute of research. the ebola vaccine is being tested here on 39 people. they cannot get ebola from the vaccine and officials here say the side effects are minimal. experts say when ebola gets into the body it often overwhelms the immune system, works too fast
12:33 am
for the immune system to fight it. this vaccine is designed to speed up the immune system's ability to fight ebola. >> if this vaccine is used can it be used to help people who already have the virus? >> in the majority of cases, animals that were exposed to the virus and then treated. we did studies where they were pre-treated, given the vaccine and then exposed. both of those are good results. >> but will it work in humans? >> to be very realistic, most medicines and vaccines even that look great in animals don't pan out in the long run. >> reporter: even as they rush these vaccines through trials there are serious questions over why it has taken this long even though we've known about the ebola virus since 1976 there are no approved ebola vaccines available to the public. why? experts say ebola outbreaks
12:34 am
until now have not been widespread enough. >> it has not been on the order, or until recently, a problem like hiv, or tb, or malaria, on how people invest in vaccines. >> reporter: so when will this vaccine be ready? dr. remick says they're pushing the process as fast as possible. but even in the best of circumstances, the vaccines may not be ready for public use for several months. they simply have to make sure the vaccines are safe. brian todd, cnn, silver spring, maryland. a computer model that tracks and forecasts the growth of ebola cases is showing the possibility of a very slight leveling within months. that is the first we've heard that. the model from columbia university in new york finds that improved levels of intervention the numbers of deaths in west africa will reach about 7800 six weeks from now. that is the green line, if continues deteriorate, however,
12:35 am
the number of deaths from ebola could top 53,000, that is the red line there showing what could happen if health care becomes more limited or the virus mutates. police in virginia call off the search for a missing college student. up next here, the discovery that may bring the shocking case to a close. also ahead, new information in the ferguson police killing of michael brown. what it means for the officer who shot him. i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. people who know me, to this day they say, "i never thought you would quit." you know, i really didn't either but chantix helped me do it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking.
12:36 am
it gave me the power to overcome the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a nonsmoker; that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

the search for a missing student from the university of virginia in the u.s. is on hold after members of a local sheriff's department found human remains. jean casarez has more on hannah graham's disappearance and what saturday's discovery could mean to the investigation. >> reporter: it was five weeks ago this weekend that the university of virginia sophomore hannah graham went missing from the downtown charlottesville mall. and it was after that, that the search began. that search has now moved to a death investigation. police say they were doing a routine search on saturday that a team of volunteers began to search an abandoned property in the county outside of charlottesville. >> countless hours, thousands of
12:39 am
hours have been spent by literally hundreds of law enforcement and civilian volunteers in an effort to find hannah. we think perhaps today proved their worth. a search team from the chesterfield county sheriff's department was searching an abandoned property along old lynchburg and southern ablemore county. >> reporter: at this point, the remains have not been identified. that will be the job of the medical examiner who will perform an autopsy to try to determine the cause and manner of death. the cause of death may be difficult because of the length of time that has passed. the university of virginia sophomore was last seen on surveillance video in the early morning hours of september 13th, walking throughout parts of charlottesville. she had gone to dinner with friends but then appeared to be lost. video also shows a man who they
12:40 am
believe to be 32-year-old jesse matthew, who appears to be walking behind graham. and then shortly before she vanishes, appears to have his arm around her. it took 40 hours before hannah was reported missing but once that happened an all-out points bulletin went out to find her. in the past days, rescue crews and volunteers and law enforcement tried to find the college student. but nothing, no sign of graham. matthew walked into the local police department with his family a week after she disappeared. he got one, he left, he was found days later on a beach in galveston. now, days later he is charged with the kidnapping of hannah graham with intention to defile and sits in the county jail without bonds. no word on when the identification will be of the
12:41 am
body found, but if it matches jesse matthews could be facing a murder charge. and there could be a break in the hunt for a suspected cop killer, investigators believe eric frein was spotted friday night. a woman saw a man with a rifle near where frein went to high school. the 31-year-old survivalist is expected of killing one police officer and shooting another and wounding him after a shooting at a barracks in september. authorities have launched a massive search to find frein since then. police say he is likely hiding in a wooded area in eastern pennsylvania. and activists in ferguson, missouri, say they're skeptical about a "the new york times" report containing new information about the police shooting of michael brown. among the details a forensic test showing brown's blood on officer darren wilson's gun. cnn's ted rowlands reports.
12:42 am
>> reporter: this new information gives an account of what officer darren wilson apparently told the grand jury while testifying for about four hours in the month of september. now this source was through "the new york times." now cnn has not verified what was said. according to the source, wilson said that mike brown was tohe aggressor, closed the door and tried to get his gun. officer wilson telling the grand jury according to the source that mike brown tried to get his gun. there were two shots fired inside the vehicle. and according to the source fbi evidence, analyst found mike brown's blood, not only on darren wilson's gun but also on his uniform and on the inside panel of the vehicle. what the source is not telling us is what darren wilson told the grand jury about why he actually shot mike brown after getting out of the vehicle.
12:43 am
why did he get out of the vehicle, and then shoot mike brown? the grand jury investigation continues. it is expected, according to the st. louis county prosecutors, that that grand jury will decide one way or another whether to indict or not indict officer darren wilson sometime over the next few weeks. a u.s. air force space plane is back on earth after ending its secret two-year mission. up next here, we try to figure out what that mission was. >> also ahead, restoring british cinematic history. we'll find out what it will take to save some endangered classes. every day people fall, from a simple misstep,

12:46 am
call this number. call now. . the u.s. air force's unmanned space plane is back on earth, the x 37 b orbittal test vehicle landed friday at the air force base. the military has not revealed details about this mission, but there are some theories that have been fuelled. cnn spoke with the aviation analyst miles o'brien. >> it is something the space community is fascinated by. it is in essence a scaled down version of what the space shuttle was. the space shuttle could go to
12:47 am
orbit for no more than two weeks, maybe 16 days, maybe it has a capability for solar power. clearly you don't have to worry about human beings, so it keeps it aloft for longer. the question is what is it doing up there? given the length of the mission it is probably something the air force is interested in using to create easily changeable, sort of modular, if you will, spy satellite. so that things to be the logical conclusion. >> spying on things in space or on earth, do you think? >> they're interested in what is going on, on earth. if you think about it, if you have a particular conflict you may or may not have resources already that are capable of getting the image at that given moment. if you had a vehicle you could launch quickly with sensors of
12:48 am
various types depending on what your situation is, that you could put in an ideal orbit, this could be something the air force is interested in. >> some people are thinking it could be a weapon. a space bomber? >> reporter: you know, i'm kind of skeptical of the space bomber idea. we have plenty of other sources without having to go to this length, for having a reusable craft that comes back, after all we have icbms that can do awful things without using this. in the '70s, it was originally designed as a partnership between the pentagon and nasa. and they initially wanted to put satellites in orbit, spy satellites, naturally. but the nasa had other reasons, as well. they picked up the ball of the
12:49 am
usable space craft and is trying to keep the flame alive on this capability. >> as you're talking we're looking at infrared pictures of it landing at night, looking ghoulish, but what is strange is any pictures at all. we know the science fiction name. they're letting us see images of it but they're not really telling us anything about it. what do you make about the semi-secrecy? >> well, it is kind of the open secret. presumably, those that would be concerned about spying with it probably know more than we do. the air force is constrained to not talk about it, after all the space shuttle through its era through numerous missions that were completely classified. this is a round that the
12:50 am
military is used to and the air force is used to and they're doing it without nasa. there is this whole open and yet secret, secret. >> we'll see how long the secret, secret stays a secret. well, in a move not seen since the cold war, sweden has started to mobilize the military around the waters of stockholm. swedish troops and helicopters are searching for foreign activity in the baltic, less than 50 kilometers from stockholm. about 200 military personnel are involved in the situation after tensions ramped up after finland accused the russian navy of interfering with its ships. and derek van dam has more.
12:51 am
>> we have hurricane ana and gonzalo still, and trudy. we'll first start with hurricane ana bringing heavier rainfall to the honolulu region. you can see the outer bands of the storm, even though the center of circulation is about 200 kilometers to the southwest of owahu. now winds are sustained. 130 kilometers per hour. let's look at the footage coming out of the region, it has been more of a nuisance of a storm for the locals. there has not been a lot of damage reported but it looks like the surfers are enjoying the waves. even though, the locals walking around the streets of honolulu with just the rain gear. i mean, this is more of basically the bark being worse than its bite.
12:52 am
