12:06 am
run, don, you are not going to transmit the virus until you are sick, right? you're going to -- you're more likely to transit when you are more sick so it's going to be -- you're not really a threat to the general public. but having said that, you know, if someone has had an exposure that one has ebola, a health care worker taking patients up heres are opposed to africa might be the thing to do. i was in west africa. my colleague was. there was no guidance when we come back. this is the world -- the new world in which we live. the guidance will need be clear. travel bans may not work and people being ju disht about their exposure to other people i think is important and the fact that, you know, i'm sure dr.

12:13 am
chanting in the hallway, whatever, and i kind of insulted him by singing a christian prayer. >> reporter: did he react? >> i didn't even really react. it was like he was in a trance. >> reporter: bibeau would die the following day. few who knew him have come forward to speak. even his mother had little to say about him only apologizing to canadians.

north korean state television has just released new images of the country's leader kim jong-un. they show him guarding a military drill. that was since his reappearance this month. yet we have not seen him appear on video. 4:17 in the afternoon. that's the afternoon broadcast where these messages and images are shown. i haven't seen a cane that was visible in previous images but there he is, the so-called supreme court leader of north korea all smiles leading a military drill bringing those images to you now. there he is with the cane.
12:18 am

12:19 am
what are you learning there. >> reporter: it is all very bizarre. we got this announcement last friday saying the government had struck a cease-fire deal with boko haram and as part of that deal those 219 girls that have been missing for some six months now would be released. we got to nigeria a couple of days later and in speaking to a senior government official, the government official stressed no deal has been finalized. in other words, talks under way in chad were still slashing out the details that would end the long-running insurgency and bring about the release of these girls. then we find out that following that announcement we have seen a number of attacks and more women and girls have been taken. local residents, as you point out, blaming boko haram saying they are responsible for these latest abductions. but there is a consensus here as to who is responsible or there isn't.
12:20 am
one thing say locals but others say it could be the work of nonstate actors looking to destabilize attempts to bring about peace before the elections. cnn cannot end pi verify who was behind them but have heard from local governments 60 women and girls were taken. where does it leave talks? the question we put to senior government officials and say the talks continue and those are still going on in chad and officials say those talks are on track and saying they believe that they will get a deal. but events on the ground complicating matters. >> absolutely. and just before we go here, is nigeria still getting international help ever since that campaign bring back our girls went global? didn't more international countries try to help nigeria with this crisis? >> reporter: yeah, you're absolutely right. a number of international parties came to nigeria among
12:21 am
them the united states, the french, the british, all lending their support to nigerian efforts to locate the girls but worth pointing out that help, that assistance was always advisory in nature. where things stand now remains unclear but the talks in cad are between the nigerians, the chadians and boko haram militants we're told. >> isha sesay, thank you, in abuja, nigeria. a hero's welcome for being edited for saving lives in the canadian parliament. how he's downplaying the attention he's receiving, kevin vickers. s uk is trying to stop protesters from turn nothing extremists but is deradicallation even working? stay with us on cnn. ♪
