hello, and welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. good to be with you. >> i'm errol barnett. coming up this hour, canada shaken by terror. we're learning more about the gunman who storm the country's parliament, along with the man who took the suspect down before he could hurt anyone else. also ahead, former security
contractors are found guilty in a mass shooting that left more than a dozen civilians dead. how this marked a turning point in u.s./iraqi relations. and we'll tell you about the new rules for travelers arriving from west africa. we will begin once again in ottawa where a canadian soldier and the man who shot him are dead. authorities are looking into possible links to terrorism. >> the scene was utter chaos wednesday morning as police say michael sahalf bee bow fired shots.e panic in the
building when the gunman began shooting. [ shots fired ] >> so chilling to hear the gunshots echoing through parliament there. the dead soldier has been identified as corporal nathan a cirillo. >> we will not be intimidated. canada will never be intimidated. in fact, this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats and keep canada safe here at home. >> well, our susan candiotti is looking into what authorities know about the alleged gunman.
she's in ottawa and joins us again, live. so susan, canadian authorities are slowly building this picture of who exactly the suspect was. what do we know about michael zahaf bebeau? >> reporter: they are trying to go back to the present so see how they can put this together and develop a motive for what happened here this day. we're talking about michael seau hoff bee bow. he converted to islam. we're not sure exactly what brought that on and at what part in his life. but in the past, in the distant past, he had a lot of problems with using drugs, including an arrest in 2004 for using the, or having possessing the ha lus jen
pcp which can make you paranoid. then fast forward to 2007 where there was a minor arrest in his life for uttering threats. originally charged with robbery, but that charge was eventually dropped. along the way, did he become self-radicalized. it's one of the things they're looking at. along the way he had his passport seized or frozen. it occurred when he was trying to leave the country to try to fight overseas. however, that passport was frozen. now a friend of his reportedly tells the globe and mail that he had been seen fairly recently at a mosque in vancouver and talked about going overseas to study islam. his father was a miner and laborer for a time, and so was he. and his mother served as a
canadian immigration official here. as a matter of fact, her home in montreal was guarded by police for a time in the overnight hours. we're not sure exactly why, but there why no signs that anyone was home overnight. >> rosemary? >> and what more are we learning about the investigation? and do we know if the suspect has or had any ties to the united states? >> reporter: certainly, it's something that is being looked at. the fbi is very active in this investigation, being asked to help the canadian authorities as they conduct their investigation as well. one thing they did learn is that he had been to the united states at least four times, including most recently in 2013. although there appear to be no direct or indirect links to any extremists located in the united states. rosemary, it is still something
they are working at intensively over the last few hours and certainly through the night. as again, they try to put together a portrait of who this man is, what kind of footprint he had on the internet as well. >> there's still a lot to learn, but they have moved very quickly, really, in the hours that we've been trying to pull together this picture, as you say. susan candiotti bringing us up to date on the situation there in ottawa. president obama says the u.s. will stand side by side with canada to prevent future terror attacks. he pledged any a sssistance the u.s. could offer with the investigation. >> we don't have all the information about whether this was part of a broader network or plan, or whether this was an individual or series of individuals who decide to take
these actions. but it emphasizes the degree to which we have to remain vigilant when it comes to these acts of senseless violence or terrorism. >> u.s. officials say they have stepped up security at the arlington national security outside washington, d.c. and also in new york. police have added extra security to the canadian consulate just as a precaution. all right. well, the parliament attack is the second terror-related incident in canada this week. on monday, a 25 year old man who authorities say was radicalized ran down two canadian soldiers outside montreal, killing one of them. the cbc reports vincent was a veteran. the suspect was shot and killed by police. at this point they're not making any connection between monday's
attack and wednesday's attack. >> we have with us an international director. now based on what we know at this still very early stage, can you see any lapses or holes that could have been filled sooner to prevent this. apparently the suspect's t passport had been frozen, but that was as far as they were able to go. >> that is the key dynamic that needs to be looked at. a lot of countries have started taking passports away from nationals wanting to travel to iraq and syria to link up with groups like isis. but taking their passports is not enough. effectively they're going to have to be monitored. because just because they can't travel abroad for training and guns, that doesn't mean they
won't be self-radicalized already, self-motivated. certainly after the first incident in quebec when two soldiers were targeted with one being killed, canadian officials need to step up security. it's a very disturbing dynamic that the citadel came under attack, and the fact that that was visualized. >> you mentioned that attack when another radicalized man tried to run down soldiers. he, too, was being watched by officials but there apparently wasn't enough evidence to arrest him. you say officials need to be viblg lant. but what does that mean? domestic terrorism can still be a major risk. >> it's one thing not having enough evidence to arrest an individual, formally charge them, but authorities do have the ability to monitor people, covertly. that goes on often for counter terrorism operations. keep in mind that canada is not
new to terrorism. they have faced a number of major plots in the past. the most notorious was the toronto 18 where a number of individuals, canadian nationals from toronto were planning a whole host of terrorist plots, including trying to target the prime minister stephen harper. so they have had this problem before. but in many ways there's been this perception that because they didn't support the war in 2003 that somehow they were immune from potential plots, unlike the united kingdom because it was supporting the u.s.-led war against saddam hussein in 2003. >> as we talk about this in canada, there's a bit of a cultural or national layer in this. canadians pride themselves in having an open society, accessible government. many said they don't want to see that change. do you think that needs to change? >> one thing, unfortunately,
that a terrorist incident like this does, it alters the way society sees security, and certainly, even though only one innocent person was killed, a canadian soldier, the terrorists have also succeeded in two other ways. one, is they created major disruption. the capital of canada faced lockdown. there was confusion, panic, uncertainty, and the other dynamic is propaganda served very well for this individual, whether he's directly connected to isis or inspired by them. this dynamic has become very important. canada's going to have to face up to the fact that it is not immune to terrorism. other countries like sweden, norway, denmark that also have a very tolerant, liberal attitude towards relationships with different communities have also got the fact that nationals have gone to iraq and syria. this is a worldwide problem. it's a new dynamic. it's no longer about going to pakistan, linking up to al
qaeda. you have an increasing number of self-radicalized people. and this is something that canada's facing and unfortunately we won't see the last of this. >> very true, and they will need to strike a balance, canada, between remaining as open and being vigilant and doing what it can to connect the dots. listening there with the international security director for the asia pacific foundation. thank you so much for joining us from london, just after 8:00 there. the gunman was killed by the sergeant at arms in the house of commons, and he is being hailed as a hero. kevin vickers is a long time member of the royal canadian mounted police. his job is to keep order, but his brother says this is the first time he's done so with deadly force. >> yeah. in fact much of vickers' work is ceremonial. he's much more accustomed to accompanying world leaders when they visit the house of commons.
>> well, we will have much more from canada throughout the hour. also, ahead, horrific video of a car plowing into a group of people waiting for their train. police believe the driver did this on purpose. and if you can believe it, it's happened again. someone jumped the fence at the white house, only this time they didn't get very far. we'll tell you why. they visit the house of commons. white house, only this time they
well, we were working on the statue, and heard a bunch of pops. i thought it was firecrackers going off. i looked across the street, and there was a man with a rifle shooting at a bunch of people. i yelled at all my guys, guys shooting, everyone get down, get down. >> heard the first shot, looked over, second shot, i realized what was going on. so i kind of took cover. >> a guy came from the side, on my left hand and came out with a rifle and shot at the man and then the guy went falling down. and everybody was just in shock, couldn't believe that something like this could just happen or be real. welcome back, everyone. you're listening to witnesses describe what they saw of wednesday's shooting at the canadian capital. and all of them are kind of bewildered and shocked.
it all happened so quickly. >> it all started with a canadian soldier shot and killed at canada's war memorial but it ended at parliament where a fierce gun battle ensued. [ gunshots ] >> i mean, those gunshots are almost deafening for the people there. and all of this happened as police chased the gunman through the building. journalist gosh wingrove explains what happens next. >> we saw them moving up the hall of honor. it's like a center spine right down the middle, and it goes towards the library, and that's where they moved and it resulted in the second round of gunfire on video. >> so that was in the hallway?
>> yeah, in the center hallway. >> you saw the shots exchanged? >> yeah. the video, it must have been, my memory is two dozen or so. it was a blur, but you see, almost all the shots, if not all of them would have come from guards rather than a shooter. a lot of them had their pistols drawn, flanking down the hallway and the guy popped out or they saw him. and they fired a lot. there was a tremendous amount of bullets fired. >> yeah, and we heard that, too. just incredible. lawmakers say it all ended when the sergeant at arms shot and killed the gunman. and we have another apparent terror attack to tell you about. this one in jerusalem. police say there a 3 month old girl was killed when a car rammed into people waiting at a light rail stop. this video posted on social media shows the apparent attack. the baby was an american citizen. her funeral was held late
wednesday, attended by israel's president. police fatally shot the man who tried to flee. he was a palestinian who served time in an israeli prison. a jury has convicted four former black water contractors. one of the accused was found guilty of first degree murder. the rest of volume uh ten tatar manslaughter. >> reporter: a life ended with a bullet to the head. he was not yet 10. ahmed was studying to become a doctor. his life, too, tragically ended on that september day. these are some of the faces of the 17 iraqy victims of the shooting rampage in baghdad seven years ago in an incident
involving the security firm known at the time as black water. it said the convoy it was protecting was in danger and it had come under attack in the central baghdad square. something witnesses said wasn't true. the iraqi government called the shootings unprovoked and premeditated murder. it sparked a diplomatic crisis and was a turning point in u.s./iraqi relations. this changed things on the ground for security contractors. for survivors like this lawyer, the physical wounds may have healed, but the memory the haunt him, he says. >> translator: no matter how you describe this you can't do it justice. they killed 17 people in cold blood. families have lost a father, a son, a child. it's a tragedy i cannot describe. >> reporter: he was driving to work when he got trapped in the
traffic in the square. when the shooting started, like many others, he tried to flee. he was shot three times. >> translator: it was hard. people were terrified. people running out of their cars were being shot at. anything that moved in the square was shot. women, children, young people. they shot at everyone. >> reporter: the defendants say they acted in self-defense. >> translator: i felt that there are people who care about this case. i felt the u.s. judiciary was interested, even if it's to show the media that america is just and guarantees people's rights. >> reporter: the long wait for justice will not bring back their loved ones but may finally mean closure. cnn, baghdad. an urgent plea for help.
why freetown is at risk for spreading ebola. >> reporter: the concern is for places like this in freetown. 35,000 people living without sanitation. if ebola takes hold here, it could spread uncontrollably. every day people fall, from a simple misstep, to tripping over a rug, to just losing their balance. and not being able to get up from a fall can have serious lifetime consequences. being prepared is important. philips lifeline with autoalert is more than just a medical alert button. it's an advanced fall-detection system,

beginning monday the centers for disease control and prevention will require travelers from liberia sierra leone and guinea to be monitored for 21 days. >> they must land at one of five airports with advanced ebola screening. you can see them there on your screen. >> but the fact of the matter, the ebola death toll continues to rise. nearly 4900 people have succumbed to the virus after nearly 10,000 cases. a closer look at conditions in sierra leone's capital really underscores why these numbers are rising so dramatically. we take you to the only treatment center in freetown. >> reporter: entering the high-risk zone of freetown's only functioning ebola center. it has only the staff to care
for 90 patients. they operate in full protective gear, rehydrating affected patients. several children are fighting off the virus and hoping to be declared ebola free. for 9-year-old daniel who arrived last week, this must seem like a prison. but keeping him behind these walls is stopping the virus spreading. and the care he gets inside is life saving. the problem is, this tiny clinic is serving a population of more than 1.3 million people. two other centers might open next month, including a british-funnbritish british-funded facility, but they say that's inadequate. >> we need something with 54,000 beds. >> reporter: how many do you have now? >> 100, 120 beds.
>> reporter: you have a tenth of what you need? >> right. we need help. we need help. >> reporter: this is a nurse who caught ebola while trying to save others. she says, as a nurse, i want this to end, because people are dying. people are suffering. show arrived here on sunday. since then, more than 100 people have been infected in greater freetown. she's worried about her mother who lives here in one of freetown's poorest slums. you can see how vulnerable it is. children playing in open sewers. houses packed together. the concern is for places like this. 35,000 people living without sanitation. if ebola takes hold here it could spread uncontrollably. that's a terrifying prospect for residents like james songu. >> it's disastrous for us.
because we are congested with this. >> reporter: ebola might be the killer, but it is poverty and ignorance that is allowing it to thrive. without more resources here, it is west africa's most vulnerable who will continue to parish. dan rivers, cnn. new developments to tell you about in the plane accident that killed the ceo of total oil. russian authorities have detained four people who they say are suspects in the accident. they include an engineer in charge of snow clearing at a moscow airport, a flight director and two air traffic controllers. one man seen here on the left and the plane's crew were killed when a plane hit a snowplow during takeoff. more to come for you on cnn. we'll bring you more information on the hero in canada's shooting. we'll be hearing from his

you are watching cnn. we appreciate you staying with us. i'm errol barnett. >> a shooting rampage in canada's capital has left a soldier dead. the gunman then stormed into parliament before he was shot dead. >> they are trying to determine the motive while the prime minister characterizes this as a terror attack.
>> reporter: 9:52, a blaze of gunfire at the canadian memorial. one of two soldiers is gunned down. >> i was locking my bike up. i heard four shots. from that direction. i turned around and ran. and i saw one of those soldiers laying on the ground. >> reporter: eyewitness peter henderson said the shots sounded like they came from a high-powered rifle. other witnesses described the shooter as a man with dark hair and a scarf on his head carrying a huge rifle. >> he came around the corner of the prime minister's office, put the gun on his shoulder and fired four shots into the back of the shoulder. >> reporter: he says the soldier appears to have fallen backwards. strangers rushed in to try to save him as the gunman runs away. minutes later a quarter mile away on parliament hill, this
sound echoes through the chambers. [ gunshots ] >> reporter: it's now about 10:00. witnesses report a gunman entered the main parliament building through an entrance meant for officials. he exchanges gunfire with security officers. [ gunfire ] >> i heard rapid fire of what appeared to be about 20 shots or more. very loud. appeared to be fairly close. >> reporter: canada's prime minister is quickly escorted, along with some members of parliament to a safe location. but dozens remain inside on lockdown. they tweet to let others know they're safe. mp michelle rimple tweets, mom, i'm okay, i'm hiding. and another tweet says everyone's safe but shaken. heard plenty of gunfire.
mps say think could smell gunpowd gunpowder. a body was seen slumped over. it will be hours before we get official word that the gunman is dead, killed bizarre jents at arms, kevin vickers. a security guard is taken to ottawa hospital. meanwhile, they still don't know how many suspects they are looking for. at 11:22, police tell cnn there may have been two or three shooters at the war memorial. >> they do believe there are two or three other shooters. >> reporter: there's word of an another shooting. this one near the center mall. later, that account is discounted. just before noon, the u.s. embassy in ottawa is locked down and president obama is briefed
on the shooting. then, just after 1:00, this grim news. >> the soldier shot at the war memorial has died. >> reporter: the soldier is identified as corporal nathan cirillo, a reservist in onontar. they are still looking for additional suspects, the last thing those in ottawa needed to hear after such a terrifying day. >> after that report, the mayor told cnn that they have ruled out the possibility that another gunman was involved. meanwhile, in corporal nathan cirillo's hometown they have set up a makeshift memorial to remember the fallen soldier. his friends can't believe he's gone. >> i just didn't want to believe
it. he was such an amazing person, amazing father, amazing friend. he was an awesome person. >> he's a hero. he's an amazing guy. >> and according to his instagram page, cirillo leaves behind a son who began kindergarten this fall. many are hailing the canadian sergeant at arms as a hero. susan candiotti is live and joins us with more on that part of the story. while much of kevin vickers' work is ceremonial, he does have extensive police experience as well. that's why he was able to stop the gunman in his tracks. what are we learning? >> reporter: he's been with the royal canadian mounted police for a long time and does have extensive experience. however, even his family has
said he's never had to fire his gun in a number of years, and yet, the sergeant at arms who in effect is described as sort of a police chief, is being credited with the one who is instrumental and in fact responsible for taking this gunman out. and in fact, his brother talked about how proud he was to learn that. >> when you hear those gunshots and know that your brother was in the middle of all that, was a very surreal experience and horror and as i say, subsequently followed by a lot of relief. in 20 years with the royal canadian mounted police he had not used his weapon in exchange of gunfire. and to think as sergeant at arms for the nation and parliament of all places to have to be involved in something like that, as i say, is quite surreal.
>> reporter: i think you can only imagine the mix of feelings, being filled with a sense of terror that a family member, your relative, was in the middle of all this going on, and yet that great sense of relief that he came out of it on the other end and was able to shoot down that gunman. and, of course, it's not the only story of heroism. you heard about the honor guard who was killed at the war memorial. well, in fact, strangers came to his aid, including a woman, who it turns out, was a nurse and actually performed cpr on him in an effort to try to save his life. unfortunately, that soldier, nathan cirillo, did not make it. but certainly tonight people are remembering him in a number of ways, including at a makeshift memorial where a couple people left handwritten signs to him saying we will not be scared. and canada, we will stand on guard, just as corporal nathan
cirillo did with love. back to you. >> susan candiotti reporting there live from ottawa. thank you so much for staying up so late. of course it's 3:39 there in ottawa, and we do appreciate your reporting from there. now tension is building between police and protesters over the shooting of an unarmed teenager in ferguson, missouri. now some fear what could happen next. >> some people are scared. and they are stockpiling and just saying that they're not going to be able to get out the house. and it's a lot of people that are scared, but there's a lot of people so angry that they don't care. ring ring! ...progresso! you soup people have my kids loving vegetables. well vegetables... shh!
welcome back, everyone. well, an american man detained in north korea for months is back in the united states. >> yeah, according to north korean state media, kim jong-un ordered his release in response to repeated requests from president obama. paula hancock explains what's behind this unexpected diplomatic move. >> reporter: jeffrey fowle is a free man. his crime, leaving a bible in a
seaman's club. a cardinal sin in a country that punishes any religious activities not state controlled and state approved. >> he had not yet been charged. and so that's the first window of opportunity to get a citizen released, is before the formal judicial process has really kicked in. >> reporter: one released, but two more u.s. citizens still waiting for their freedom. kenneth bae and matthew miller are serving time in prison camps. in the past it has taken a former president like jimmy carter to secure the release. this time it didn't happen. so what would pyongyang want in return for this seemingly humanitarian gesture? >> ultimately, it's a couple things. one is economic and basically legitimacy. they want to be seen as legitimate amongst the members of the international community. they want aid, because that
helps prop up the regime. >> reporter: there's been a flurry of diplomatic activity in recent weeks. officials are wracking up air miles, even crossing the border into south korea for an unexpected meeting. and north and south korea exchanging fire. many believe a recent report on their labor camps and human rights abuses may have been a trigger for a change in political attitude. representatives to the u.n. have been courting publicity, a very unusual move. jeffrey fowle's release is just the latest, despite evidence to the contrary it does care about its international reputation. paula hancocks, cnn, seoul. now to ferguson, missouri
where police and protesters clashed once again over the shooting of 18 year old michael brown. this standoff took place outside the police department wednesday night. at least two people were detained after demonstrators threw water bottles at a police barricade. >> the st. louis suburb has been rocked by protests for two months now. they want the officer who killed brown arrested. >> but an autopsy report could back up the officer's story. >> reporter: it is the latest leak from the investigation into his death. the leak reveals two details the public has not heard before. details about the gunshot wound to brown's hand and forensic information that could help determine whether the teen had his hands up while being shot. witnesses, including this construction worker have told
cnn brown had his hands up when he was shot by police officer darren wilson. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: we had an independent forensic expert examine the autopsy report which revealed where the bullets entered and exited brown's body. do the details give any indication that brown's hands were up while he was being shot? >> i don't think so, based upon the positioning of the wounds. the entrance and exits, and then re-entrance. based upon all of that and the right arm wounds, it's just inconsistent with him having his hands up. i understand other people might argue and interpret it differently. >> reporter: but the autopsy cannot reveal if brown's hands were up during the pause between shots in the car and the remaining shots. the autopsy also detailed a wound to the inside of his right hand near his thumb and palm. one expert told the st. louis post dispatch that that would
indicate brown was reaching for wilson's gun, but forensics expert says it's hard to determine if brown was reaching for the unhollistered gun in the police car, but there was clearly a struggle. >> there's also blood, michael brown's blood on the gun. and there's michael brown's tissue on the outside of the driver's side door. when you put all that together, it really fits with a struggle that took place inside the vehicle, and, again, it supports the story of the police officer, rather than the eyewitness testimony. >> we had no weapons on us at all. >> reporter: brown's friend, dorian johnson said wilson was the aggressor while brown was trying to runaway. michael brown's family attorney reacted saying it is missing a key point, officer wilson shot michael brown multiple times and killed him, even though he was
more than 20 feet away from his patrol car. this is the crux of the matter. some on twitter are calling it tainted and part of a coverup. the prosecuting attorney's office denies the accusation saying it has been processed by the county and fbi laboratories. with every leak tensions grow. ultimately, there is a great concern that the grand jury decision could re-spark major unrest, again, in ferguson. >> some people are scared and are stockpiling and just saying that they're not going to be able to get out the house. and it's a lot of people scared but some people are so angry they don't care. >> reporter: sara sidner cnn, ferguson, missouri. for the second time in five weeks, a man jumped the white house fence. but unlike last time, the intruder never made it inside the executive mansion. want to show you this video of the incident. it gives an idea of what happened. police dogs attacked the man.
he kicks the dogs before they take him down. secret service agents then detain him. it happened despite increased security after last month's white house breach which led to the resignation of the secret service director. >> i'm shocked that someone would have the audacity to make that jump, you know, and run toward the building, so that's crazy. >> now it's becoming a challenge that everybody's trying to do it, is that it? >> we probably won't be able to get this good a view from now. it just keeps happening, it's nuts. >> charges against the suspect are pending. the police dogs were injured in that scuffle. you saw them being kicked. and they were taken to a vet for treatment. still to come for you here on cnn, another thing that we've been talking about in the newsroom. can you name this famous american actress? well, we're going to reveal who she is and why some -- let's be honest, everybody's surprised by
now, it's already what, late october now? and the holiday shopping season is fast approving, but americans looking to buy breaking bad action figures, they won't be finding them at the toys-r-us. >> the company says the figures are on, quote, indefinite s sabbatical. the reason is a woman's petition with 9,000 signatures. >> the petition says a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth that came with the action figures deviate from family values. >> i think it was the bag of meth that did that. >> yeah. a bag of cash is okay. >> there is also a counter
petition to bring the toys back. they were already in an aisle designated for adult collectors. >> did not know there was an adult section in toys-r-us. actress renee zellweger's new look has a lot of people talking. some people say she's unrecognizable. >> jeanne moos hits the streets. >> reporter: we are wigging out over renee zellweger's new face. >> she looks gorgeous. she doesn't look like old school renee zellweger, but who gives a [ bleep ]. >> reporter: half the country, apparently. >> are we as a society supposed to pretend we don't see it. >> reporter: she's a beloved actress. but when shown her recent photo, folks said, who? do you know who this is? >> no. >> i really don't know.
>> she looks like a completely different person. >> that's her? oh, my god. >> oh! >> reporter: say hello to the new renee zellweger. >> you had me at hello. >> reporter: but what exactly has she had? >> an upper eyelid lift, which is just removing a little bit of that heavy skin on the upper eyelids. >> reporter: this surgeon says he's almost 100% sure about the eyelid lift and he suspects a brow lift as well, procedures he would have done. >> i think technically, they did everything right, but what they did wrong is operate on the wrong area. >> reporter: but zellweger herself was not publicly admitting she had any work done. in a statement to "people." she credits a more fulfilling time in her life. perhaps i look different. who doesn't as they get older. ha, but i am different. i'm happy. she calls the brouhaha about her looks silly.
