12:02 am
disease. any transitimission chains can result in many more cases. >> the w.h.o. reports more than 13,700 cases at this point. about 5,000 people have died. right now a debate is raging over quarantine policies for health workers returning from the ebola hot zone essentially. but the u.s. president and the pope emphasized their support for the volunteers. people they call heroes. >> some of these men and women have recently returned. others are heading their shortly. but all of them have signed up to leave their homes and their loved ones, to head straight into the heart of the ebola epidemic. like our military men and women deploying to west africa, they do this for no other reason than

12:05 am
because she was suspected to have ebola. she had access to the internet and we brought her takeout food. >> reporter: another doctors without border physician treated ebola patients in guinea. after returning home, he was not required to self-quarantine. >> reporter: kaci hickox and other health care workers have the right to monitor their own situation. >> to treat them as if they're a potential problem as opposed to a public asset, i just think it's a shame, and i don't think it's the right way to act. >> reporter: if she does decide to sue the state of new jersey for its forced quarantine, christie says -- >> get in line. i've been sued lots of times

iraq on tuesday and wednesday. to a developing story we are following. police say they have shot and killed the suspect in the drive-by shooting of an israeli activist in jerusalem, that activist calling for jews to be allowed to pray at the compound. so erin, how did police track down the suspect in the shooting of the rabbi yehud glick and what do we know about the suspect at this time? >> reporter: we understand that israeli police had been searching for the suspect in various neighborhoods throughout jerusalem into the night. according to police, they identified a building on a seam between east and west jerusalem that they believe was housing the suspect. they surrounded the suspect, and according to police, shots were fired from the building. police say they returned fire
12:08 am
immediately killing the suspect. now, police at the moment are not giving details as to the identity of this individual. however, israeli media are reporting that the suspect is a palestinian man who has spent time in jail for violent acts. >> and erin, what do we know about the condition of yehud glick and the circumstances leading up to his shooting? >> reporter: controversial activist yehud glick had just finished hosting a convention in jerusalem, attended by activists. the convention called for israeli jews to go to the temple mount to pray. at the conclusion of that convention, according to israeli police, a man on a motorcycle drove by, shots were fired, shooting glick in the chest. he was taken to an israeli hospital and he has been
12:09 am
operated on and is in critical condition. he may need to undergo further surgeries. as for the situation here in jerusalem, things are tense following that incident. security has been increased throughout the city, and the compound or temple mount has been closed today. rosemary? >> erin, many thanks to you report thing live from jerusalem. all right. other stories to come for you. nato is keeping a close eye on recent russian military activity. what has the alliance so concerned? we'll look through that after the break. for weeks, there was no sign of north korea's leader. how kim jong-un seems to be courting the media spotlight. we'll show you what pyongyang says he's been up to.
12:10 am
12:11 am
12:12 am
recent moves by the russian military are causing some concern for nato. the alliance says it tracked at least 19 planes, including bombers, over the baltic, north and black seas in a 24-hour period. nato calls it an unusual rise in russian military aircraft flying in european air space. >> and that incident is just one of the latest to further strain relations between the west and russia. let's connect now with our matthew chance from moscow. good morning to you. president putin calls for a new world order, one that defuses u.s. power in his recent speech.
12:13 am
it's certainly a popular sentiment where you are, but the blunt, and some have said emotional nature of these comments, comes as a bit of a surprise. do we know what spurred this? >> reporter: well, i think it's a continuation of what vladamir putin has been sort of banging on about really in the last several years since he came back to the russian presidency. the idea that the united states should be the sole superpower is something that's been anathema to him. i think that's reflected in this -- to go back to those nato concerns that have been expressed about the russian flights, it's something reflected in russia's increasingly aggressive stance. i suppose you could characterize
12:14 am
it. the count i've done according to nato is 26 aircraft in the course of the past 36 or 48 hours, that were watched, monitored by nato, assets in the region, particularly over european air space. a highly unusual number for that short a period. and it reflects, as i say, the increasingly assertive stance by the russian government when it comes to its military affairs, and that's reflected in its political and diplomatic statements, as well. >> the fact that it's unusual, i think, is what's really standing out. there are so many different, unusual aspects of russian activity. you mentioned more than two dozen planes that you counted. there was also the white house hack. officials there saying it originated in russia. you also mentioned that submarine essentially, people suspected it was a submarine
12:15 am
there in europe, possibly from russia. do we know anything about those issues? is the kremlin making comments about its own behavior? the one thing that was absent from president putin's speech and his description of who is doing things wrong around the world was any acknowledgement of russ russia's behavior. >> of course, this has been one of the characteristics of vladamir putin's public remarks and one of the positions of the russian government is they don't tend to comment on this, what they would call speculation about their military activities or indeed accept any responsibility for anything that goes wrong in international affairs that others in the world may hold them responsible for. in terms of the recent white house hack in which unclassified material inside the white house appears to have been obtained or threatened bit a cyber attack,
12:16 am
the white house is being very careful not to officially blame russia, but off the record, white house officials are saying they believe the russians may be responsible. with things like the, the russian government says it doesn't support hacking. it's not going to say yes, of course we were behind this. and it's very difficult to get concrete proof, as well, that russian hackers or the russian government is behind a cyber attack like that. they don't have these sophisticated malware programmers don't advertise the fact where they're from. so it's speculation that it's russia that's behind this. but you have to look at who's being affected by these cyber attacks. a criminal game would have very little interest in monitoring the energy infrastructure of western european countries. it would have very little
12:17 am
interest in monitoring what's going on inside the white house. so a lot of these suspicions are based not on concrete evidence from the code that's being seen by these anti-virus programmers and companies that are engaged in this, and institutions, but more sort of speculation as to who gains from carrying out these attacks. >> a quarter past 10:00 in the morning. matthew chance speaking with us live from moscow. thanks. after a 40-day disappearing act, kim jong-un seems to be back. >> north korea's leader is shown here, said to be leading abinspection of a flight drill, but the state news agent sill didn't say when these images were taken. >> a lawmaker has told cnn that kim had ankle surgery and he's leading a deadly political purge in north korea. >> reporter: the drama in south korean soap operas look harm
12:18 am
enough. but if you believe south korean officials, kim jong-un executed north korean party officials merely for watching them. >> they can try to purge officials here and there as a e deterre deterrent, but human beings, they want information. >> reporter: and so does kim jong-un. here he is watching a performance by disney characters. and who could forget his fascination with american basketball star dennis rodman. but kim's brutality against his own people has the united nations moving towards hauling his regime in front of the international criminal court for crimes against humanity, a scathing report on north korea's human rights record on tuesday details brainwashing, torture, starvation and imprisonment in prison for offenses such as questioning the system, practicing christianity or trying to escape the country.
12:19 am
>> the international must send a signal that it's determined to follow up the findings. >> reporter: the fear of being tried in the court has sent north korea on a charm offensive, meeting with the united nations. the regime has also released photos of a kindler, gentler kim jong-un, images meant to portray him as healthy and firmly in power after a mysterious six-week disappearance. >> there was a lot of speculation during his absence about a possible coup. u.s. officials say they have no indication of anything like that, but they note a referral to the international criminal court could be a major blow for the regime. they suspect that's why north korea is taking the rare move of
12:20 am
engaging critics in its well documented human rights violations. >> we'll take a short break. but just ahead, investigators are examining debris from the rocket that exploded tuesday night over virginia. the company that owned the rocket now facing scrutiny over the condition of its engines. a feel-good story for some. baseball fans are celebrating the new world series champs. that's after the break.
12:21 am
12:22 am
want to get you some new information from tuesday's failed rocket launch. the cause of that dramatic explosion isn't yet known. the privately owned rocket was powered by modified soviet engines. that means they were decades old. >> as tom foreman tells us, the mishap is raising questions about who should be sending rockets into space. >> we have ignition. we have liftoff. >> reporter: orbital sciences has an almost $2 billion contract with the u.s. government to take payloads to the international space station. that fits perfectly. >> we will work with a growing array of private companies competing to make getting to space easier and more affordable. >> reporter: yet this disaster
12:23 am
will only intensify the debate about whether private companies can handle such dangerous work well, while watching the bottom line. nasa says it has confidence in orbital. the virginia company says it will thoroughly investigate. >> we will not fly until we can ensure this doesn't happen again. >> reporter: some point the fact that they have built their rockets around refurbished russian engines. that's right, that american contract money is buying old rebuilt russian engines. space x dismissed orbital saying their rocket sounds like the punchline to a joke. they start with engines that were literally made in the '60s. earlier this year, one of those engines failed during a test,
12:24 am
and orbital says it now has plans to drop the russian engines. >> it is possible we may decide to accelerate this change if it turns out to be implicated in the failure. but this has not yet been decided. >> reporter: orbital notes in the two previous flights, the engines performed well. maybe that's why others in the space try are noting this is rocket science. >> yesterday was a bad day. today we're regrouping. but the industry is going to be moving forward and upward. >> we were all watching in the newsroom as the major league baseball season ended wednesday night with high drama. >> yes. a lot of excitement in the newsroom. it was a nail biting finish as the san francisco giants beat the kansas city royals in the seventh and deciding game of the world series. patrick snell has the highlights. >> reporter: the san francisco
12:25 am
giants are celebrating another success after securing a third world series game in five years. the giants proving too strong for the kansas city royals in game seven to add to their 2010 and 2012 triumphs. i can tell you, this mother and daughter have waited a generation and a lifetime for the royals to have this chance. still scoreless at this point. bottom of the third now, tied up at 2-2. man on first, grounds up the middle but joe panik with the flip to second for the force-out. runners on the corners. michael morse dutmps a single into right, 3-2 giants. now to the man of the moment, madison bumgarner strikes out
12:26 am
omar infante to end the inning. last chance for the royals. alex gordon lines this to center. gordon winding up on third thanks to the error and this would mean it's all on perez's shoulders. he pops up on the third base side. sandoval gloves it and the giants win their third world series in five seasons. >> i was just concentrating on making pitches. i wasn't thinking about how many innings i was going to go or any pitches, just thinking about getting outs. fortunately for me, we had some quick ones and that gave me a chance to stay out there. so i am thankful for the opportunity. we've got one of the best closers in the game that could have come in at any time and slammed the door. so i'm thankful for our team believing in me and letting me stay out there. >> incredible what he did
12:27 am
through his postseason, historic. in fact, i was staying away from him every inning, because there's no way i would have taken him out unless he would have told me. >> so the royal also have to wait at least another 12 months to end that world series drought. for now, back to you. >> thank you. it is a compelling story of surviving ebola. the cameraman who was working in liberia describes his experience and shares his thoughts on quarantines. that's ahead. the shattered dreams of a high school senior captured by isis and made a slave. her story after this. cheerios? honey nut. but... chocolate is my other favorite... oh yeah, and frosted! what's your most favorite of all? hmm...the kind i have with you. me too.

thanks for staying with us here on cnn. i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. we want to check the headlines for you this hour. israeli police have shot and killed a suspect in the shooting of an israeli activist in jerusalem. the suspect was a palestinian previously jailed for violent acts. american born rabbi yehud glick is in serious but stable condition. he wants jewish prayer at the temple mount in jerusalem. it's revered by both muslims and you jews. nato says more than 19 russian aircraft were spotted in a 24-hour period. matthew chance says he spotted more than two dozen by his count. a nato official tells cnn the flights may be a precursor to
12:31 am
unannounced air exercises. >> the san francisco giants are major league baseball's world series champions. they beat the kansas city royals 3-2 in the deciding game. madison bumgarner was named the most valuable player of the series. one of the survivors of the ebola virus is telling his story. ashoka mukpo was working as a cameraman when he contracted the disease. >> he was flown to the nebraska medical center where he recovered. now back home in rhode island, mukpo is describing his experience to our don lemon, beginning with his theories on how he got the virus. >> my feeling, and i'll never know this for 100% certainty, is that i touched an infected surface in one of the high-risk areas i was and didn't
12:32 am
chlorinate fast enough, maybe i rubbed my face or something like that, or maybe the chlorine didn't get that particular place. but i can't give a definitive answer to that, because i don't know. >> is there any way to describe what the illness feels like. does it feel like a flu? what does it do to your body? >> i want to find ways to help people understand it, but it's nothing -- it's like nothing i had ever experienced. there was body aches and chills and fever, but they were so much more intense than anything that you're likely to get with the flu. >> pain? >> yeah, there was pain. certainly muscle pain and aches. very high fever. i think at one point it was 104. i think the thing that was most pronounced was the weakness, the physical weakness. i used to see people who would be laying in front of treatment centers trying to get admitted
12:33 am
and they're just laying out in the sun and the gravel and i used to think about them and think you can't sit up at least? but when i was sick, you don't have any energy. to walk three feet feels like you ran a marathon. >> you got a transfusion from kent brantley. how long did it take you to start to feel better? >> well, i'm not a doctor, and i don't know -- i don't want to make these assertions, but i felt that the transfusion itself was very difficult. there was a lot of physical reactions to it. i've never had a blood transfusion before, so my body was like, whoa, what's going on? but the next day i started to feel better. that's when my eyes felt easier to see, my headache was less. the doctor walked in and said wow, you look better today. >> has anyone asked you for a
12:34 am
transfusion? >> i can't give blood for another two weeks. my antibody count is not strong enough to be useful. but i want to say, you know, that kent brantley is a hero of mine for what he did. i think that he had a role in saving my life. he's been so compassionate and so literally willing to give his body to the care of others. i hope when my number gets called, i have that same courage and i know i will. >> how do you think our officials and the administration handled this situation? >> i'm not an expert in this situation, but i think cdc was criticized far too much. i think for a hospital like dallas to receive an ebola patient was something we might say we're prepared for, but mistaked happened when the first time you confront something with something you have no experience with. in my opinion, the cdc has been doing everything they can to keep people in this country safe. i just think there's been a
12:35 am
little political showmanship. >> when are you going back? >> to liberia? >> uh-huh. >> i have no immediate plans to go to liberia. i think for the benefit of my family's heart rates and health, i don't know if it would be any time soon. i'm never going to say that i would never go back to liberia under the right circumstances, but it would have to be the right circumstances. i love that country. all right. we turn to isis now. the terrorist group is well known for its kidnappings across syria and iraq. but the syrian observatory for human rights says isis has released 25 kurdish teens. >> the activists say those are the last of about 150 students kidnapped back in may. they were taken hostage on their
12:36 am
way home to kobani. >> isis has unleashed some of its most brutal treatment on the area yazidi population. >> reporter: jenna was a 19-year-old high school senior with dreams of becoming a doctor when isis first came to her village. >> translator: they came to the village and said you have to convert to islam or we will kill you. >> reporter: she is from a village of ethnic kurds from the yazidi religious minority, surrounded and occupied by isis early last august. soon after she says isis ordered the entire village to go to the school, where they stole all the people's jewelry, money and cell phones, and then separated the men from the women. according to a united nations report, isis then gathered all males older than 10 years of age, took them outside the village by pickup trucks, and
12:37 am
shot them. a different fate lay in store for the women. >> translator: they separated the girls and the women who had children and the old women. they took us girls to mosul to a big three-story house. >> reporter: she says there were hundreds of girls in the house and they got visits from the men of isis. >> translator: they came to the room and looked around at the girls. if they liked one, they chose her and took her. if the girls tried and didn't want to leave, they beat the girl. the guy who chose me was 70 years old, and he took me to his house. there were four yazidi girls there already. they hit us and didn't give us enough to eat or drink. they told us we were infidels. he put me in a room and put a gun to my head and i was on the ground. and he said, i will kill you because you won't convert to islam. that night they came and took an 11-year-old girl away, and when she came back, she told me they raped her. >> these women have suffered
12:38 am
severe psychological trauma. they have been systematically raped by different men at the same time. >> reporter: she is an adviser to the kurdistan government and expert on gender violence. she says isis kidnapped more than 2,500 yazidi women last august. after mounting an offensive that triggered a massive exodus of hundreds of thousands of yazidis and other iraqi minorities. since then, she says the captive women have been bought and sold across iraq and syria, like cattle. >> they have two main aims. first, by giving them these young girls and women, to humiliate and to expose these women into slavery and systematic rape. >> reporter: that fits an account we heard from an isis
12:39 am
fighter held in a kurdish prison in syria. >> translator: when someone joins isis, they give them a girl, marry them off and maybe $2,000. >> reporter: since august, kurdish authorities succeeded in rescuing only a fraction of the thousands of kidnapped women. >> so far we managed to rescue about 100 women. >> reporter: she says all of those rescued say they were raped. if you could say something to the men who took you to his house, what would you want to tell this guy? >> translator: i don't want to tell him anything. i just want to kill him. >> reporter: ivan watson, cnn, irbil, iraqi kurdistan. >> despite the growing poverty level in the world, the wealthy continue to add to their net worth. coming up, we look at the

welcome back. let's take a look at the u.s. stock market. it slipped a bit in trading on wednesday. the dow lost a fifth of a
12:43 am
percentage point, while the nasdaq fell a third of a percent. the markets seemed to shrug off the news that the u.s. federal reserve was ending its bond buying program. >> and those purchases helped support the struggling u.s. economy with enormous amounts of cash. the program started almost six years ago. in the darkest days of the recession, the fed began buying mortgage backed securities and took on debt from housing lenders fannie mae and freddie mac. >> it bought a new bond buying program totalling $900 billion. then operation twist was designed to lower bond yields. and in 2012, a fed started a program of buying securities from the private sector. >> and it appears the rich
12:44 am
really will getting richer. a new report finds that not only are billionaires wealthier, but the number of billionaires has doubled since the start of the financial crisis. >> jim boldin looks at proposals to close that gap. >> reporter: luxury cars, big yachts, bigger homes. it's fast times for the super rich. even during five years of economic downturn, the rich got richer. now action is being called to address the widening wealth gap that is creating serious economic instability. >> first, we need to close tax loopholes that wealthy individuals and corporations have been able to use. second, we need to protect the natural wealth of countries so that it stays in those countries
12:45 am
and builds healthy economies. i'm talking about oil, mineral and gas. third, we need to raise the minimum wage. >> reporter: a major new report entitled "even it up," includes these claims. the total wealth of today's billionaires increased by? % in the last four years to around $5.4 trillion. the number of billionaires has doubled since the economic crisis began to 1,645 people. a tax of just 1.5% of the world's billionaires could save 23 million lives by investing that money in health care. last year we had $159 billion sitting in tax havens that could have been spent on poverty reduction. that money is more than every single dollar that was spent by every single donor globally on fighting poverty and humanitarian crisis around the world. >> reporter: of course, some billionaires already agree with
12:46 am
paying more tax, including bill gates and warren buffett. while pope francis has stated that "inequality is the root of social evil." but reports like "even it up" often come out and sink without trace. this time with everyone from president obama to the pope, to some of the richest people on earth talking about wealth and poverty, there may just be a consensus growing to tackle the extremes. jim boldin, cnn, london. >> the other end of the spectrum, the youngest nobel peace prize laureate is using her winnings to help educate children in gaza. she won the children's prize wednesday in sweden. she's donating the $50,000 reward to the u.n. agency for palestinian refugees. she says it will help rebuild schools in gaza and send a message that its children are
12:47 am
not forgotten. >> i'm feeling really happy that this time children have selected a child to win this prize. it's for the first time. so it's amazing that now children are believing that children need to take a step and to go forward and to fight for their rights. it's no more the time that we should wait for someone to come and speak for us or ask other people to come and fight for our rights. >> fighting between israel and palestinian militants damaged some u.n. schools in gaza. the u.n. says this donation will difficult the spirits of 250,000 schoolchildren. all right. now an american band's new music video has some asking just how did they do that? take a look. we'll tell you why this video is attracting so much attention. he played a powerful wizard.
