that when they took her temperature, initially at the airport, they did it without actually an oral thermometer and she -- they did it when she was upset and i guess angry or drying or whatever it may have been? >> absolutely. that's correct. she's actually very upset that the new jersey department of health has put out this information and has not put out the more accurate information that the oral temperature came back as 98 degrees three times. >> we'll keep you posted on that situation in new jersey. the west african nation of mali has reported its first death from ebola, a little girl. she was diagnosed thursday and was just 2 careers old. mal ich mali's health ministry says officials are monitoring dozens of people who may have had contact with her. hers was the first-known case of ebola in mali. after a quick break, state of emergency in the peninsula.

members of their security forces. sources say a car bomb targeted two armored vehicles near a checkpoint near army installation. hours later, gunmen opened fire on a checkpoint. meeting with defense officials to talk about security in the region and also called for three days of mourning. in syria, the u.s. military is not letting up in its aerial bombardment of isis militants. u.s. central command said it launched six air strikes near the turkish border friday. kurdish forces have been battling isis militants for control of this town for weeks. they say a strategic hill that came under assault by isis may now be back under kurdish control. let's get the latest on this situation from our senior international correspondent who is there in the region. nick paton walsh following developments. he is on the turkey/syria border near kobani.
1:15 am
what can you tell us, nick? >> reporter: well, natalie, we have been moved off the hill where we normally stand by the turkish army, who are clear that those two hills will not have the crowds of media that they normally v we're not quite clear why, building anticipations that perhaps in the coming 24 hours, we might see the arrival of the peshmerga forces to assist the kurds holding on behind me. the assessment of their fight is more upbeat as well. in the far east we're hearing pretty severe clashes that's been going on overnight, intermittently on the west, very close to where i'm standing here, reports of clashes, too. but the kurds very much in control again of the main -- you can hear behind me some automatic gunfire, which does sound like it's coming, actually, from the west of the city. briefly advanced on by isis, now firmly back in control of the kurds. they've been resupplied.
1:16 am
they say they want the peshmerga to arrive, because they'll bring with them heavy weaponry, tank and heavy armor weaponry. we don't know precisely when they will arrive. we're advised it most certainly won't happen with fanfare. when those men arrive it will finally bolster the syrian kurds inside there. this is something which the iraqi kurds in northern iraq and kurdistan have offered as assistance. we have reach aid moment where they might be due to arrive and another confusing issue put on the table by turkish president who talked about 1,400 free syrian fighters being en route. yes, they welcome help. they don't think those numbers are realistic. many observers of the syrian rebels suggested they struggle to find that many soldiers. you can hear the sound of violence still in the city. the broader assessment, the
1:17 am
bakeries are open. independent dpon says they're doing good at holding on to territory. >> it's mazing that the kurs in kobani have held out for so long. overall, bigger picture there, nick. since these air strikes have been ongoing, what is the larger picture looking like for isis and their spree across this region? >> reporter: there are many who say that this really, to isis, doesn't matter too much. those who point out they've used a lot of resources fighting for kobani. a lot of people we hear from, talking about their urgent need to send reinforcements here, seeing fighters en route to here. we've seen ourselves the sheer volume of air strikes have been put around kobani to degrade isis, as the pnt gone would put it. still, they're putting up the fight for the city.
1:18 am
perhaps it has become symbolic for isis. perhaps this would be perhaps the first place, if it did continue to be held by the kurds and isis would be pushed back, it would be the first, i think, momentous moment where the isis advance had significantly been turned around and the kurds are benefiting a lot from that in terms of their standing regionally. isis, it doesn't appear broken in any significant way. people still trying to assess the damage that the fight in kobani has done to their ranks. >> you saw some isis fighters on the way to this spot right here where you're reporting live for us on the border. we thank you and your crew. cnn's nick paton walsh for us. it was an hour's long crime spree in central california, friday. it finally ended with the arrest with the prime suspect but not without the loss of two veteran lawmen. we'll have more about that coming up. also ahead, isis calls on
