sunday december 7th. but only one will be named cnn hero of the year. i'm don lemon. thank you for watching. our live coverage continues now with john vause and rosemary church at the cnn center in church at the cnn center in atlanta. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com hello, and welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm john vause. it's great to have you with us. we're live at the apec convention in china. we're also where the captain of the doomed ferry will learn his fate why people in ferguson, missouri fear more violence may break out soon. >> i don't want my windows smashed out again. and winter's come early in parts of north america.
how the arctic blast is affecting traffic and travel. >> hello. great to have you with us. now we start in beijing where cooperation among some of the world's biggest economies is the focus right now on the second day of the apec summit. >> leaders from 21 asian pacific economies are talking about economic growth and reform in the region. u.s. president obama is also scheduled to meet with chinese president xi jinping one on one today. controversy alton ickes like human rights, fres freedoms and cyber spying could be discussed. >> and david, barack obama and xi jinping are spending a lot of quality t david, barack obama a xi jinping are spending a lot of quality time together, so what's likely to come from all that face time? >> reporter: well, that face time u.s. officials hope will
lead to a better relationship between these two powerful nations, the world's two largest economies. they've managed to ink a deal relating to high-tech products which will reduce tariffs on things like medical equipment, computer game, other high-tech products which should improve economic relations between the two countries. they've already announced a visa deal. but these are bigger kpash egero the other deals on the table. this will, it seem, be a way to prioritize the relationship between the two leaders after a relatively disastrous trip last time by president obama to china. >> and david, talking to personal relationships. there are other leaders at this conference, and it does seem that these meetings have not been friendly. >> reporter: well, there's a lot
of smiling and face time, as you say, but there's always going to be those awkward moments, one of them potentially when president obama briefly met with president putin of russia, obviously a lot of bad blood currently between those two countries over ukraine. the white house saying they didn't have any substantial talks but that could happen again. but perhaps more dramatically the meetings between xi jinping and the prime minister of japan, shinzo abe. you saw the prime minister of japan trying to talk to the leader of china, effectively said nothing to him. but still, it's seen as a good step in the warming of relations between these two countries which have been down in the dumps for at least two years because of territorial disputes, john? >> there was also a tense moment between the australian prime minister tony abbott and
vladimir putin. one other note from apec. it seems like the hurculean efforts to turn off the pollution have not totally worked. if you can't fix the smog then you fix the smog report. >> reporter: it's a tried and tested method by the communist party. the air's pretty good today, and that's probably largely because of the wind, which is the only real guaranteed way to clear the air in china because of the hideous pollution issues they've been dealing with in recent years. you know, china has shut down the economy, pulled the kill switch, as it were, on this region's economy, shutting thousands of factories, closing schools. people can't get married, passports, any kind of visas. apparently everything's shut down to put on the best face of china for these 21 world
leaders. i have an app on my smartphone. when you look at the u.s. embassy readings, they are nonexistent. the developer says they've been contacted by the chinese government to redact that information. so it appears they're taking no chances, at least for anyone to get the information to even if it isn't clear air, it will look like it on your phone. >> you have been there way too long if you think the air there isn't too bad. >> reporter: i can breathe. i feel good. >> i know the feeling. thanks, david. all right, to another big story we are watching very closely. five months of testimony are over and verdicts are expected in the trial of a south korean ferry captain and his crew. if convicted, the captain could face the death penalty for his role in the accident that killed more than 300 people, many of them school children. we turn to our paula hancocks who joins us from seoul with the
very latest. so how is this likely to play out? and what are the family members of those killed in this accident saying at this point about what verdicts they expect will be handed down? >> reporter: well, rosemary, i think it's pretty clear what the families would like. and if you look at public opinion in this country, the captain and crew have already been tried and convicted many months ago. i think as soon as that footage was released, showing the captain being rescued from that boat, coming out in his tee shirt and underwear, he said he was changing in his room at the time of the sinking, there was complete anger across the country. there was national mourning, national guilt and national anger that the crew and the captain left the sinking ship after having told the passengers to stay where they were. so certainly, if it was up to public opinion, they would have already been sentenced, but the court itself has only been
convened about an hour ago. we're waiting to hear whether or not the captain will receive the death penalty. this is what prosecutors have asked for. they want the death penalty for the captain. they want life imprisonment for three of the other crew members. and for the rest of them it's 15 to 30 years that they are looking for. we have heard from the captain over row crept months. he did say in the court, he said i deserve to die. i know that my crimes mean that i deserve to die. but he also said that he had no intention to commit murder. he is pointing out that he had no intention on that day for this to happen. and that's really what the prosecutors had to do, to prove that he had willful intention to kill. and of course that is going to be the tricky part for the tr prosecutors. of course we don't know ha that sentence is, but even if it is death penalty, rosemary, in this country that does not mean loss of life at this point. there's dozens of men and women on death row waiting for an
alleged execution, but that execution has not come since 1997. so even if he does get et death penalty, it effectively means life imprisonment without the chance of parole. >> very important that we do point that out. and paula, as you said, there was that public outrage in the aftermath of this accident and intense criticism of safety standards, has that changed how rescue operations will be conducted in the future? >> reporter: it's very difficult to see how things have improved. there have been some grand gestures. for example the coast guard was dismantled by the president, park geun-hye. they were criticized in the hours after the accident, the golden time when many people could have been rescued, and many of those passengers could have been told to get off the ship. we know in hours afterwards many people were trapped in their
compartments in the places where they were, because they were told by the crew to stay where they were. but the coast guard also were basically picking up people who had jumped into the water, who were able to get out of the boat. and many local fishermen and local boats in the area were picking up more people than the coast guard itself. so the reaction in the hours afterwards has been heavily criticized. the fact that this ship was allowed to set saline though it was overloaded with cargo, even though much of that cargo was not tied down properly, and it passed a government safety check. so there are a lot of people implicated in this very wide-ranging accident. it's difficult to see what exactly has changed. many people are still criticizing the fact that regulations seem very lax in this country. we've had accidents since the sewol accident. >> many thanks to our paula
hancocks reporting from seoul, south korea. as she pointed out, court convened about an hour ago. we'll be keeping a close eye on that to see what the verdict is handed down on that, john. israel's prime minister is vowing to crack down on violence which is targeting israelis as police investigate what they're calling terrorist attacks in tel aviv and the west bank. the two separate stabbing incidents left two israelis dead and two more. we must warn you that this report has some images which viewers may find disturbing. >> reporter: a young israeli soldier is lifted aboard a stretcher. it is noon in downtown tel aviv. he was waiting for a bus when he was stabbed. this paramedic one of the first responders. one stab wound or several stab wounds? >> he had few in the legs and upper part of the body.
>> reporter: not long after this video appears on youtube. the attacker, an arab still holding a knife, appears to cut his own wrist. the security services move to arrest him. what has security services here concerned is the question, is this stabbing an isolated incident? or is it part of a growing trend of attacks at transport hubs over the past few weeks? within hours, this in the west bank at sunset. a van driver deliberately drives into someone at a bus stop, knocks them down. all caught on security camera video. seconds later, the van driver comes back, finds the person he knocked down, starts stabbing them. then he crosses the road, chases, then attacks another victim before he is interrupted. a third man appears to spray something on the attacker. he crosses the road again and returns to his first victim. police say three people were
injured in this stabbing attack. one of them, a 24 year old woman, dying at the scene. the attacker, whom police describe as a terrorist, shot at the scene by a guard. hours later, the radical islamic group islamic jihad praises both the west bank and tel aviv attackers. tensions and concerns here rising. tel aviv, israel. all right. want to turn to the weather now. and on monday, parts of the u.s. saw temperatures drop some 40 degrees fahrenheit or around 22 degrees celsius in just a few hours. this is all part of a massive cold spell settling in across the nation. >> it's not the polar vortex. and this is really settling in for a long period of time as well. >> absolutely. the next time we think the city of minneapolis will get up above freezing will be in 13 days.
that shows you the longevity of this. about a move removed before we get to the official beginning of the winter season. but i want to talk about what's happening over the past 24 hours. the snowfall has been rather impressive, especially for this time of year. we're talking about accumulations of 16 inches in st. augusta. look at the footage coming out of areas around minneapolis/st. paul. this was coming out over the evening hours. not the best thing you want to see. you have that across the southern united states. but across minneapolis, the minnesota state patrol say they handled some 475 crashes over 700 vehicles, spinning out and getting off the road, caused about 45 injuries and a fatality to go along with this.
but the beweather's certainly rough, with flights canceled out of minneapolis-st. paul. it will be exiting when it comes to the precipitation side. look at the wind chills at this hour in fahrenheit. 6 below zero, about 21 degrees below zero celsius is how cold it feels around rapid city. and denver, it is sitting roughly at 2 degrees. and of course, the next 24 hours or so. major travel lanes, we have a lot of fog. temperatures should be mild across the northeast before the cold arrives, but delays could be upwards of an hour and a half over the next 24 hours. currently at this hour it is 40 degrees cooler than it was this time yesterday in denver. folks in denver woke up at 9:00, 62 degrees, by 2:00 they dropped
to 32 degrees, and that pattern looks like it's here to stay for quite a while. we'll have more news coming up soon. did someone say burn? try alka seltzer reliefchews. they work just as fast and are proven to taste better than tums smoothies assorted fruit. mmm... amazing. yeah, i get that a lot. alka seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief.
i'm just looking over the company bills.up? is that what we pay for internet? yup. dsl is about 90 bucks a month. that's funny, for that price with comcast business, i think you get like 50 megabits. wow that's fast. personally, i prefer a slow internet. there is something about the sweet meditative glow of a loading website. don't listen to the naysayer. switch to comcast business today and get 50 megabits per second for $89.95. comcast business. built for business. police say a suicide blast ripped through morning assembly
at a boys school in northern nigeria. mostly students were killed, dozens more were wounded. >> attacker disguised himself as a student, possibly hiding the bomb in a knapsack. there have been no claims of responsibility. but police suspect boko haram. u.s. and coalition forces launched at least 41 air strikes in syria and iraq from friday into monday. >> fighter jets struck 23 targets near kobani. in iraq, war planes hit 18 isis targets across the country. >> a senior u.s. official tells cnn it appears the army targeted leader al baghdadi, but it's not clear. we look at his powerful role
inside isis and the region. >> reporter: he runs the terror group like a ceo, with spreadsheets on missions and captured assets. he's got a reputation for viciousness, shrouded in secrecy, except for one sermon in mosul where he flashed an expensive watch and exhorted his followers. now u.s. officials cannot confirm whether he was killed or wounded in coalition air strikes over the weekend. >> how much trouble would they be in without him? >> isis clearly has a line of succession. this is a bureaucratic organization with a deep bench. and either they have, either baghdadi has signed off on a succession himself or the council. >> reporter: baghdadi has two principle deputies.
turkmoni oversees operations in iraq and the other in syria. >> these people who previously served in saddam hussein's regime were brutal because he was brutal but they inherited the military skills that are now been fitting isis in its campaign against its enemies. >> reporter: they say turkmoni could take over. >> it certainly makes him a potential contender. >> reporter: there's also abu mohammed al adnani. some were in a detention camp with him. >> he was able to trust these
individuals as sharing his ideology, sharing his hatred for the west. >> reporter: they say if or when baghdadi is killed, look for some type of retaliatory strike by isis against u.s. interests. they would do that to memorialize their martyred leader and to show the coalition that isis is still a major threat. brian todd, cnn, washington. for months, ebola has been impacting daily lives of millions in west africa. up next, we'll go to sierra leone to see how some villages are struggling with the disease and how some people there are trying to help. huh, fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. everybody knows that. well, did you know genies can be really literal? no. what is your wish? no...ok...a million bucks!

quarantine order is planning to leave the town. her 21-day monitoring period has just ended and she has had no symptoms. >> the ebola outbreak remains concentrated in west africa where it has killed 4900 people. >> we found one village under self-imposed quarantine and another that might have villages spreading the virus elsewhere. >> reporter: we're heading out from freetown towards qama where it's said four people died yesterday. before we can get there, we have to stop at devil hole. we've got one, one person's dead there.
>> one. >> reporter: one person dead, several apparently dying. you dial 117 for emergency services here, and they're supposed to come for the sick and the dead. it's after 11:00. they've been calling 117 since 7:00 this morning. >> we called 117 this morning to tell them what happened. but they tell me they will be here very soon. >> reporter: so they wait with no protective equipment here, angry, frustrated, frightened. the house you're seeing 50 meters away is the villagers tell me the house where this man lived. now that's not where his body is. his body has been moved some, i don't know, 80, 100 meters to the other side of the road here. he's lying under that tree right now. the problem is, how did he get there? the villagers say he was moved
there. that happened with at least two or three people without any adequate protection at all. that is a near certain way of catching and therefore spreading ebola. worse, the villagers tell us the men to carried him to his last resting place have fled into the jungle. not far off, brother' taken to see where one of his three wives lies desperately ill with ebola. people here don't understand why nobody's come to help. a policeman arrives, very close and without protection. but what can he do? when you're in devil hole, the international aid limit for sierra leone looks to be too little and too late. we finally make it to quama, a ghost village, self-imposed 21-day quarantine after four people died here late yesterday. >> in case there is any one
died, nobody should wash the body. no one should touch the body unless the burial team. so now what we are planning to do is to quarantine the whole village. >> reporter: a aid team gets to work to cordon off the area. >> i use gloves, i put all of them to get into the car, i take them to the police. >> reporter: are you concerned for your own safety? >> yeah. when the people speak, i used to tell them i have my prayer. >> reporter: good luck with that, father, good luck with that. this afternoon, the wol sti-- wn still lies there. her husband is in the white van
beside her, but they only do body collection. they say it will get worse before it gets better here. >> thanks for that report from sierra leone. meantime, some of the biggest names in music are teaming up to try to fight ebola. they are re-making the band-aid single, "do they know it's christmas." they say it's so heartbreaking because it steals the comfort of a human touch. >> lovers can't comfort each other, mothers can't hold their children. wives can't hold their husbands' hands while they die. that's not right. it can be stopped. >> and google is also jumping into the battle. the tech company and the family foundation of co-founder larry page are donating $25 million. and google has also launched a
website to collect money. it will give two additional dollars for every dollar donated by the public, up to $7.5 million. other tech giants are making donations to the cause. an emphatic reassurance. >> we will not let iran acquire a nuclear weapon, period! period! period! >> but there's dwindling hope for a nuclear agreement with iran. those details ahead. plus we'll explain why this awkward handshake between the leaders of japan and china could be a sign of thaw of relations between the two countries. ba whack back in a moment. how are ya? good.

welcome back to our viewers in the united states and around the world. you're watching cnn. >> we do want to check the headlines for you this hour. court is in session and verdicts are expected soon in the trial of a south korean ferry captain and his crew. they're charged in the ferry accident that killed more than 300 people back in april. many of the victims were school children. prosecutors are asking for the death penalty for the cap tape. two israelis are dead and two wounded in separate knife attacks. the dead are a 24 year old soldier and a 27-year-old woman in the west bank. the suspect is under arrest in the tel aviv attack, and a security guard shot and wounded another palestinian in the west bank incident. a suicide blast at a boys
school in nigeria has killed at least 47 people. dozens more are injured. so far no one is claiming responsibility, but it bears the hallmark of boko haram. it's a major snowstorm for some parts, like minnesota. and icy blast is dropping snow and lowering temperatures all the way from idaho to michigan. even hurricane-force winds have been reported in some parts. the leaders of china and japan had a rather frosty exchange, but after years of conflict -- >> we have more at the underlying dispute of their meeting. >> reporter: a rare moment at the asia pacific cooperation summit in beijing. an awkward handshake between
chinese president xi jinping and shinzo abe. the two shook hands. the goal, to ease several years of tensions, yet, their facial expressions seem more of an obligation than of harmony. the closed meeting lasted 30 minutes. one of the major contentions between the two nations has been the disagreement over a group of uninhabited islands in the east china say, a controversy between japan and china that has been brewing for decades. the dispute involves control of an island group and which part of the sea each country controls. the islands are located about 200 kilometers from japan. the islands are popular for fishing, but no one lives there. according to japan, they
discovered the islands in 1884. the government surveyed the territory and claimed it 1895. after world war ii, the u.s. took control, but they were given back to japan. china did not recognize that treaty. it was then discovered the area was rich in oil and natural resources. it was then that china and taiwan tried to claim the islands, saying the taiwanese have been fishing there for decades. japan has big stakes. because it is almost completely dependent on imports of oil and gas. the region is also an important shipping channel. each country believes it has the right to more sea territory than what it actually has by law. yet, the u.n.'s law for sea is also vague, leaving the countries to solve the matter themselves. ahead of their meeting, china
and japan's leaders issued a joint statement, essentially saying that they agree to disagree. and although they agree to continue diplomatic talks, that may be all they agree on. cnn. more details are emerging on the secret mission to free two americans from north korea including plane problems that could have scuttled the trip. president obama says the mission to release the men did not involve high level talks about the nuclear program. kenneth bae was brought back to the u.s. but the plane was delayed because of mechanical problems. bashar al-assad says he may make way for humanitarian aid. he met monday with the united
nations envoy to discuss a proposal for a freeze. rebels fighting the assad regime still have a stronghold on aleppo. years of talks between the u.s. and eiran have ended with o signs of progress. >> negotiators are working on an accord to set limits on the nuclear capacity in exchange for an easing of sanctions. why it's so difficult for either side to move forward. >> reporter: the reason that there's so much drama and suspension wisu suspense with these talks is that there's so much stake and neither side seems to have a clear upper hand. if there's a deal, iran could offer the help in places like iraq and afghanistan and syria. it can potentially help the u.s. stabilize this region. the u.s., on the other hand, if there's a deal, it could offer
iran what it wants, an easing of these sanctions that have crippled the economy here. so both sides have some serious cards to play. there's no indication that anything's going to happen at this point. and obviously, they both have to go back home if there's a deal, and convince domestically that they won. and back home, of course, there's other obstacles in the u.s. there's a congress very concerned about a deal and the parliament in tehran equally concerned. okay. we have an update now on the situation with the court in south korea when it comes to the trial of the captain and crew of the sewol ferry. we understand that a verdict is now in. paula hancocks joins us now with more. what do we know at this point? >> reporter: well, john, we've just learned that the captain has been sentenced to 36 years in prison. and he's also been found not guilty of murder.
so obviously, many ever the families will be very disappointed with this verdict. prosecutors will be disappointed. they had been calling for the death penalty for the captain of this ferry which sanction back in april, killing more than 300 people, many of them high school students. now many of those families of those victims were in the court when this verdict was read out. we're waiting to hear what the reaction was, but we can only imagine what that reaction would have been. so 36 years for the captain of the sewol ferry, and as i say, he was found not guilty of murder. now prosecutors had to prove that he had willful negligence and intended to kill people. some say he deserved to die because of the crime but he said he had no intention of killing people. he said he was confused when this incident happened. when the accident happened he
was not at the helm, he was in his room, changing clothes, smoking he said, and he was confused about what was happening. so there's going to be a significant amount of reaction to this verdict. of course prosecutors now have to decide whether or not they appeal this verdict and whether they try and secure that death penalty that they wanted. john? >> well, the prosecutors had asked for the death penalty. but the chief engineer is in fact guilty of homicide, so explain why that may be the case if you can. we understand this is developing. >> reporter: well, you have more updated information than me at this point. but obviously, we are watching to see what the verdicts are for the other people as well. they were actually asking the
pr prosecutors for between 15 and 30 years. so we have to wait and get more information about what exactly the others were found guilty of. but of course the families will be very angry that the captain himself has not been given the death penalty or at least life imprisonment because he has been vilified in this country. remember just a couple days after this accident happened we saw footage of the captain actually being rescued from the ship. he was leaving with a tee shirt on in his underwear. he said at the time of the accident he was changing clothes. and we also see him on land as well, being looked after, being cared for. while, basically, many ever the passengers were perishing and going down with the ship. and of course much of the anger stems from the fact that the crew did not tell the passengers to evacuate. the fact that the crew told the passengers to stay where they
were as the ship was going down, and pros prosecutors say this is why they lost their lives, because they were told to stay put. >> this was a five-month long trial and a sentencing just handed down fwiby a panel of th judges. pr prosecutors had sought the death penalty. the chief engineer has been found guilty of homicide. we wait to find out what the sentence will be for that. and also the fate of 13 other crew members who are also on trial for this ferry disaster which claimed about 300 lives back in april. in the meantime, we'll take a short break here on cnn. back in just a moment. down.

while the s&p has gained 10% this year. the nasdaq is at its highest level in years. >> the internet broadband carriers didn't have a very good day. that was after president obama called for tough rules to allow equitable internet service for users. >> president obama said he is against let being internet providers charge more for better speeds. shares of internet service providers fell sharply after his remarks. >> this set of principles has unleashed the power of the internet and given innovators a chance to thrive. i'm laying out a plan to keep the internet free and open. >> the president is urging the
federal communications commission to prohibit this practice. prosecutors could decide mid month whether to indict a white police officer for killing a young unarmed black teenager. >> many fear a new outbreak of violence. sara sidner is in ferguson, missouri with more. >> reporter: fear is building in ferguson. some shops now look like a hurricane is coming. they are praying for the best but preparing for the worst. she said she can't take a chance that violence will crash into the business she worked for years to build. >> if they loot, it's going to
cost us. >> reporter: protests haven't stopped for three nomonths on h street. but there's been no looting except for months ago. this is one of the most verbally outspoken protesters. >> there hasn't been any looting or violence. we've been completely peaceful. >> reporter: if the grand jury doesn't indict officer darin wilson, people fear violence will erupt. west florissant street which looked like a war zone in august now looks like it's ready for more days of rage. >> i hate the boards. i don't want them here, but i don't want my windows smashed out again. >> reporter: still, dan mcmullen works in his business like he has for 20 years but has decided to buy a second gun capable of holding more ammunition just in case. >> so maybe i get trapped here,
we have to have a john wayne shootout, you know, that's the silly part about it. is that going to happen? not a chance, but i guess, could it? because, you know, i'm the only white person here. >> reporter: at a gun shop near ferguson, they say sales are up about 50%. both white and black customers are buying. >> every time that door opens, we're seeing new faces every day. dozens of new faces coming in. >> reporter: do you think that's because of what's happened in ferguson? >> i think it is, because it's spread beyond ferguson now. >> reporter: the mayor of ferguson says he's heard all about it too. >> now that the plus side of that is that everyone that i've spoken to have taken out and taken a training class, have tried to learn the law. >> reporter: not everyone is convinced there's going to be chaos. at the ferguson burger bar and more, no boards. >> i want to make a statement to the community that i'm here. i'm open. i'm not going anywhere.
>> reporter: sara sidner, cnn, ferguson, missouri. u.s. officials say the manhattan clinic that treated joan rivers made serious mistakes before her death. >> the federal report says the clinic failed to identify rivers' deteriorating vital signs, and the staff did not respond in a timely fashion. it also says an unauthorized photograph was taken of a surgeon and rivers while the 81-year-old was under sedation, in other words, a selfie. attorneys say melissa is understandably outraged. the u.s. postal service is the latest target of a major seeker attack. hackers have broken into a postal service computer system and stolen personal information on more than 750,000 current and retired postal employees. the breach also compromised confidential information for nearly 3 million customers.
the washington post reports the chinese government is being looked at as possibly responsible for the breach. china has long denied being involved in cybercrimes. new york city is telling its police to stop arresting people who are carrying spamall amount of maerrijuana. >> mayor de blasio says it will remove the stigma of a conviction for first-time offenders. >> so many new yorkers without any prior convictions have been arrested for low-level marijuana possession. black and latino communities have been disproportionately affected. there have been disastrous consequences. even when a person is arrested even for the smallest possession of marijuana it hurts their chances to get a good job,
