9:01 pm
place for months. we'll show you how the protesters are reacting. we know that tens of millions of people are facing extreme weather across the country. >> yeah. everyone's feeling it. but first we do want to get to this story. an indiana couple says they need time to heal and even forgive after their son was beheaded by isis militants over the weekend. >> aide worker peter kassig's parents are calling for prayers, not just for their son but for all those being held against their will in iraq and syria. >> our hearts are battered, but they will mend. the world is broken, but it will be healed in the end. and good will prevail. >> reporter: peter kassig's parents are asking for prayers and privacy. the day after a video was shown
9:02 pm
of the beheading of their son. an aide worker. the video also depicts the slaying of others. isis says the video was filmed in a town near the turkish border, significant for them, as they say it's the site they predict for a final christi christian/muslim battle. kassig told cnn he felt compelled to help victims of the war. >> there's this impression, this belief that there is no hope. that's when it's more important than ever that we come in against all odds and try to do something. >> reporter: the 26 year old started his own non-profit to dliv humanitarian aide and assistance to syrian refugees. >> in 26 years, he has witnessed and experienced first hand more of the harsh realities of life than most of us can imagine.
9:03 pm
but rather than letting the darkness overwhelm him, he has chosen to believe in the good, in himself and in others. >> reporter: kassig used his medical background to treat wounded syrians until he was captured in syria a year ago. while in captivity, kassig converted to islam and went by the name abdul rachman kassig. the video does not show him speaking before his death, but it does show a masked man dressed in black speaking in what sounds like a british accent. a similar figure appears in previous videos. unlike previous videos, isis didn't name the next victim. near did they mention losses in u.s. air strikes. he is the third american to be killed since u.s. and allies began air strikes against isis
9:04 pm
in august. >> our hearts are heavy and are held up by the love and support that has poured into our lives the last few days. >> reporter: nick robertson, cnn, washington. there is a high probability that a french national took part in the killings shown in that isis video. >> he is identified as maxim -- while his involvement remains under investigation the french public prosecutor says a second french citizen might have been involved. >> a sunni cleric has condemned kassig's murder and the entire militant group. >> the sheikh recently signed an open letter to the isis leader calling the group unislamic and

banning every islam from joining it. >> reporter: he's not going to listen to you, is he? and his followers aren't going to listen to you. >> well, we don't care if he listens or not. what we care about are muslims around the world who should listen and refute, destroy their ideology c ideological basis. sooner or later there's no end unless we stop people from joining isis. this is what we end. >> he had been an imam and a preacher at the great mosque of damasc damascus.

9:07 pm
that we are prepared for whatever may happen. >> reporter: but the governor's actions have angered some protesters who say their demonstrations have been peaceful for weeks and his decision is premature. the decision comes after these images of officer darren wilson were released this weekend. the surveillance tapes released to the st. louis post dispatch show the wilson leaving the police station after the shooting. wilson does not appear to have any major wounds to his face as initially reported by a source speaking on behalf of wilson to a local radio station. the police department later said wilson had no major facial injuries but had slight swelling. police radio traffic that details the final moments before and after the shooting of brown. they revole a better timeline. but sources say when wilson initially told brown to get out of the middle of the street, he did not know brown was a suspect

9:14 pm
hong kong was a mixture of support and indifference. now it's turned into increasingly outright frustration. there was a recent poll that came out that said 30% of hong kong residents, just 30% support the pro-democracy protesters. but they are resolute that they will stay here because they are organized and their demands have yet to be met. >> and one interesting thing about that poll is that while there is this dwindling support for the protesters, support there remains very high among young people there in hong kong. >> reporter: indeed. support very high. look at the main student groups who are behind the group. scholarism whi schol scholarism. they had student leaders attempt to make a trip over the weekend

9:27 pm
but talking about the temperatures being freezing in just about every state of the united states. about 50% of the continental u.s. under snow at this very moment. if you go to europe, only the alps seeing snow. then you go over to asia, much of siberia, a lot of asia with snow on the ground. this is the fastest accumulation of snow since 1998 across siberia. the weather connects across the globe anytime you have this kind of weather it indicates cold weather across europe. we'll have more new the coming up shortly. n's got this blankie that gets filthy. but he's got such sensitive skin that you worry about what you use in the laundry my tide pods, downy and bounce all come in free & gentle so we get a cleaner, softer blankie. gasp hypoallergenic tide, downy and bounce free

9:32 pm
south korea with background on this. >> reporter: rosemary, north korea's managed to ignore many u.n.kcondem condemnations over the years, but this one has them rattled. pyongyang's sending officials all over the world trying to mitigate the effects of the inquire eye. th they deny many charges and are trying to discredit many defectors and those who have been part of the political prison system in north korea. we spoke to one of those men who saw it first hand. he shows me the scars from his time in north korea's brutal camp. he says by the time he was released he barely had any teeth left. he's also blind in one eye.

9:35 pm
on this a little later on tuesday, u.s. time. and they will need a majority to pass through into the general assembly, which could well be mid december whether or not to move this draft resolution further along the u.n. now we have heard that there has been an amendment suggested by one of north korea's few allies, cuba, suggesting that kim jong-un should not be recommended and referred to the international criminal court. but they don't believe that amendment will pass, and they hope this report will move on up the ranks in the united nations. >> in reality, paula, even if this does make it to the international criminal court, how likely would it be that any of those in charge would be hauled before the icc? >> reporter: well, that's what i asked. i said what is the likelihood that you will have the north
9:36 pm
korean leader, kim jong-un, standing in front of the icc? he said it's possible in the future. it may happen. but he did specify that the reevlg is non-binding. so it's not necessarily going to create anything. but he believes there is a momentum at this point. i also did acknowledge the fact that once it gets through the general assembly it goes through the security council. russia and china are permanent members of the security council. china is expected to veto the move. russia could as well. we know there's a top official, an envoy of kim jong-un in russia right now. he arrived this tuesday, and he'll be on a charm offensive over there. the expectation is we won't see north korean leaders in front of the icc, but the very fact that the momentum is building and that the member states will be

9:38 pm
for supposed crimes against the government. in return, they hoped for substantially better relations with the u.s. >> i think they were disappointed, frankly, that i didn't have some breakthrough. >> well, you did bring a letter from president obama. >> it generally was a pretty short letter, which basically identified me as the president's envoy, and characterizing their willingness to release our two citizens as a positive gesture. >> reporter: so where was leader kim jong-un? nowhere to be seen. the state run news agency has just released these pictures of kim visiting a food plant, possibly after al gagtlegations massive malnutrition. >> there's a certain institutional paranoia.
9:39 pm
>> they did bring up the human rights issue at one point, although we were well into the dialog, criticizing us for our interventionist policies in their internal matters. >> reporter: despite all that, clapper says, finally, with only 20 minutes notice, the captive americans were suddenly produced, pardoned and on their way home. clapper's trip happened on november 7, and he remains cagey as to whether this will lead to better relations. suggesting with the younger north koreans it is possible. he says it still remains a very dangerous place. cnn, washington. pope francis is heading to the united states for the first time next year as head of the catholic church. >> he will attend a celebration in philadelphia on the family's role in society. the city's mayor calls the visit something to be excited about.
9:40 pm
peter gallagher has more details about the visit. >> the pope is going for this meeting. he himself called the meeting on the family. it raised a lot of questions amongst the cardinals and catholics around the world. so we have questions on contraception. questions on divorce, questions on gay marriage and children of gay marriages. so pope francis clearly putting an emphasis on what are some of the modern issues for families today. the visit to philadelphia will fall into that category, although it's not symbolic just for that reason, but that is the reason the pope will be visiting philadelphia in september of next year. >> pope francis has also been invited to address the united nations, and a joint meeting of the u.s. congress. no word on whether he's accepted
9:41 pm
those invitations. there is breaking news now. there has been a shooting at a jerusalem synagogue. at least nine people have been wounded in what it is calling a terror attack. that's according to the idf spokesperson. this incident comes amid rising tensions between israelis and palestinians across the region. more details on this as soon as we get them. all right, well, iran nuclear talks resumed in vienna, and the deadline for a deal is just six days away. >> the security council's members are hoping for agreement that will keep iran from developing nuclear wep withapon. >> reporter: the talks involve several nations and several issue, but think of it as a trade. what will iran give up, and what will it get in return? the west among other things wants iran to limit its capacity
9:42 pm
to enrich uranium, but it can arm a nuclear weapon. iran says it isn't trying to build a nuclear weapon and says international law protects its right to a peaceful nuclear program. and rouhani says it contradicts their ethical and religious convictions. but think have history, history hiding their actions. among them, an enrichment facility built underground, inside of a mountain. so here are the questions. how many sentcentrifuges shouldy be allowed to have. and how far will outside inspectors be able to penetrate
9:43 pm
to check for cheating. talks on those issues touch on iran's sovereignty, about its suspicions about the west's intentions and also on its need to break free of crippling economic sanctions. it is sanctions that tehran wants addressed. how quickly and completely will the united nations, the united states and the european union end almost eight years of punishing economic isolation. there isn't a lot of trust to push things along and there are domestic and international pressures holding things back, from saudi arabia to the u.s. senate there is enormous skepticism about what any agreement will be worth, all of which explains why there hasn't been an agreement until now. >> john mann there. still to come here on cnn, one man is making it his mission to rescue kill er whales after he spent years hunting them. we take a look at never before

9:48 pm
big business? >> oh, yes, outside of the race horse. they are worth millions of dollar ashs dollars. people like to see the animals in captivity. >> reporter: he started his career in seattle which was the birth place of the captive killer whale industry. a ban on capturing orcas in washington state forced foster and his colleagues to move their operations to iceland. there, they snatched young whales from the frigid waters of the atlantic ocean and domest domesticated them for sale to marine parks in the u.s. and japan. over time, foster says he got more and more uncomfortable with ripping wild killer whales from their families in the sea.
9:49 pm
>> it's a cry almost like a baby's cry. and it, so, yeah. it's, it tugged at your heart. >> reporter: over the last 20 year, foster has gone from being a hunter to a rescuer of marine mammals. we first met foster two years ago in turkey when he led a back-to-the-wild project that rehabilitated two abused dolphins and released them into the aegean sea. he worked with the killer whale springer. it was found lost. and with keiko who survived in the wild after spending decades in captivity. but two years ago, foster got a very tempting offer to return to the hunt. he says he was offered $7
