cnn will take you inside of damascus. >> warm welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world with. i'm zain asher. glad to be with you the next hour. >> i'm errol barnett. this is "cnn newsroom." we begin with u.s. politics in the 2016 candidate who keeps rising if popularity. >> no stopping him. >> donald trump. >> yet. >> the republican presidential candidate leads two polls in the key early voting states of iowa and new hampshire after the debate last week on tuesday night. he spoke at his first campaign since then on tuesday night and fired back when pressed for his policy plans. listen. >> when you are coming up with a plan in business you have to be flexibility. there has to be flexibility. i bought something not so recently, but doral in miami.
everybody wanted it. if i said here's a 12-point plan to get doral. i didn't do that. i went in and punched and punched and beat the hell out of people and ended up getting it. everybody wanted it. >> another question he faced that got attention is whether or not he will consider a third party run to run as an independent. in fact that was the question that kicked off the republican debate if you remember now. trump is sticking to his original plan and that is to not rule it out. listen. >> if i'm not treated fairly -- and the word is fairly, it doesn't mean well, it means fairly. i am not treated fairly. once i decided to run all of a sudden i'm somewhat anti-establishment. >> switching with over to democrats, hillary clinton will hand over her private e-mail server to the u.s. justice
department. she used a server during her time as secretary of state and faced very intense criticism for not using a secure government server. the fbi is investigating the matter. meantime, clinton said she has turn ed over all of her work-related e-mails to the state department. until now she wouldn't turn over the server. the issue has certainly hurt hillary clinton in the polls. the majority of respondents saying they don't think she is trustworthy. >> what does this really mean this we will bring in larry in charlottesville, virginia. he's the director of the center for politics there at the university of virginia. thank you for your time. no real specifics from donald trump today. plenty of free wheeling generalities that to be frank keep him atop the polls but is the presidential selection process supposed to work like this? >> it is very early in the process.
people abroad are surprised how early it takes. in history we found that candidates frequently at this particular point in time are not representative of the candidates who rise to the top. donald trump is being donald trump. he is saying relatively little. he is not being specific. he's spending most of his time repairing relations with certain media organizations like fox news. >> much of his criticisms, though, have been xena phobic. he talks about mexicans being a threat, about china doing things to compete with the u.s. some of his recent commentary has been judgmental towards women and minorities. what does it say about the republican party that that rhetoric strikes a chord to the point where he is now the most popular candidate? >> we need to remember, there
are 17 candidates in this field that. is why donald trump is on top. remember, he only has a fifth to a quarter of republicans. the more republicans that drop out, and there will be many dropping out before the first voting takes place in iowa in february, the more candidates drop out the worst donald trump is will do relative to the others. i think he has hit his ceiling. he is at 20 to 25%. he has such high negatives with just about everybody else that he has no room to grow. >> on the flip side, the leading democratic contender hillary clinton made a move earlier to give her private computer server to the feds reversing an earlier decision. you talk about leadership qualities. by giving over the server, what does that mean? what does that show? >> it shows she had to do it. look, she has mishandled this from the start.
she's done it in the typical clinton fashion that we've come to know from bill and hillary clinton. there's been a drip, drip, drip of revelations and this has lasted far longer than it needed to. in fact, it would have never occurred at all if hillary clinton, secretary of state followed the rules. so she is paying a price for not doing what other government employees had to do at the time. >> in the meantime, former florida governor jeb bush is proposing his plan to fight isis and islamic extremism as well. he spoke to supporters a few hours ago. bush said he would impose a no-fly zone over syria and embed u.s. troops with iraqi forces. he also took aim at president obama and hillary clinton, as well, for pulling combat troops out of iraq too quickly. listen. >> where was the secretary of state? where was secretary of state clinton in all of this? like the president himself, she had opposed the surge, and then
joined in claiming credit for its success. then stood by as that hard-won victory by american allied forces was thrown away. it was a case of blind haste to get out and to call the tragic consequences somebody else's problem. rushing away from danger can be every bit as unwise as rushing in to danger. and the costs have been grievous. >> now, two new polls show donald trump leading the field of republican presidential candidates. >> right. donald trump doing well but some other candidates, as well, that are also rising in the polls. here's our dana bash with more. ♪ >> reporter: in the first contest state of iowa, donald trump is leading for the first time, according to a new suffolk university poll, edging out wisconsin governor scott walker, who spent months treading lightly around trump and is now taking the gloves off. >> he is using the same tired
talking points of the democrats. they didn't work in the past and certainly won't in iowa. >> trump's rise in iowa came as he told chris cuomo he won't rule out running as an independent. he is defying convention once again, admitting and owning to being a whiner. >> i'm a whiner and i whine until i win. >> he is trying to redime himself with female voters after a feud with megyn kelly. >> i cherish women. i will be so good to women. i will work hard to protect women. >> despite controversial remarks about women with, trump is at 14% winning with female voters in the first caucus state. this gop opponent isn't buying it. >> vulgarity does not equate with insight. someone can say you are stupid and ugly does not equate with a
vision for the country. >> trump's lead narrowed in the first primary state of new hampshire. on the upswing with, two breakout stars from last week's debate. >> we keep plugging. like the little engine that can. >> reporter: john kasich catapulted from barely registering in new hampshire to third place. conservative voters in the live free or die state apparently not turned off about comments about same-sex marriage. >> i went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. >> reporter: and carly fiorina couldn't get on the debate stage last week moving up in iowa and new hampshire. the candidates not do ing as well are as much of the story as those who are. chris christie is living in new hampshire and his numbers have dropped so much she only 3% in this new poll. rick perry struggling so much his campaign is no longer paying staff. instead they are asking them to volunteer. jeb bush was never banking on a win in iowa and she now in
seventh place there which is troubling to some supporters. dana bash, cnn, washington. now to other stories we are following for you. police in missouri have just released video they say shows a suspect waving a gun during protests in ferguson. police say 18-year-old tyrone harris is the man in this surveillance video. you will see him in the white t-shirt. we have zoomed in. he's accused of firing at officers and critically injured when they fired back. >> harris faces a number of charges, including assault on law enforcement. his family insists he was actually running for his life. >> the gun fire broke out during what had been a peaceful demonstration marking one year since police officer shot michael proun. we have a report on the day of unrest that followed. >> reporter: pepper spray flies after police tell protesters to

he shot him six times in the stomach and put him in handcuffs. >> we looked at a man after gun fire erupted. he had on red pants. so did harris. he lay on the ground after shot by police. st. louis county police say they are looking to a picture found on facebook and they say they believe it is tyrone harris sitting there holding two guns. the investigation continues and harris is in the hospital still in critical condition. back to you guys. >> that is our sara sidner reporting there. i want to take you to texas where a white police officer has been fired for allegedly shooting and killing an unarmed african-american teenager. so it happened during a burglary. call on friday at a car dealership, surveillance company edited this video which it says showed 19-year-old christian taylor, you can see him there, apparently jumping on cars in the dealership and driving his suv in to the dealership show

the reference rate 1.6% lower today after 1.9% cut on tuesday. >> this is a very big deal. we can show you china's markets how they are responding to all of this. as you see, they continue to fall. the shanghai composite down .3 percentage point. the hang seng down 2 percentage points. the nikkei and the s&p asx down a percentage and a half there. >> the devaluation is supposed to help with economic growth and export s, as well. the china central bank said it doesn't expect another rate cut anytime soon. meanwhile, the impact stretches far beyond the world's stock market. richard quest explains why. >> reporter: when you look at how the yuan moved you see all of these effects, whether it is
going up or down. this case obviously it is falling. we see the dollar getting stronger. that means more exports from the united states. they become more expensive. clear negative. chinese goods, they of course become cheaper which means a more competitive battle. in the short and easy terms, devaluing the yuan is bad for u.s. exporters and brilliant for chinese exporters but there's more to it than that. you have to look at other currencies tied to the yuan that are losing value, australian and new zealand dollars and brazil. they were all down. they were down not only because of the technical effect but because commodity prices. they are priced in dollars. those countries are big commodity exporters. oils, minings, metals. they are all losing ground. at its most simplistic, you can see the yuan's move in simply chinese versus u.s. export 0s

federation, ukraine, malta, cyprus, france, new york, pennsylvania and georgia. >> law enforcement groups have warned for years about the threat of hacking, haven't they? >> over the past two with years retailers in the aiu.s. retaile and the government have fallen prey to it. a mississippi couple accused of trying to travel outside of the u.s. this past weekend to join isis. the trip was allegedly disguised as their honeymoon. pamela brown tells us more. >> this is a young newlywed couple from mississippi who allegedly used their honeymoon as a cover up to go to syria and join isis according to the fbi. the man is 22-year-old muhammad oda dakhlalla and his wife, 20-year-old woman jaelyn delshaun. they were arrested at a mississippi airport on saturday.

health issues. i cherish women. i will be great on women's health issues. believe me. >> in the meantime, trump is once again refusing, refusing to rule out a third party bid for the white house. i spoke last hour with cnn political analyst ron brownstein about the possibility of him running as an independent. listen. in the sense if he chose to run as a third party candidate he would be an enormous challenge for the push can party. his support is concentrated on the elements of white america, particularly blue collar white america. those are the voters that have become the corner stone of. it is hard to imagine any republican nominee being able to survive, i think, a donald trump third party candidacy. it's not easy to do. it's very difficult to get on the ballot in all 50 states.
the rules are conflicting and they vary from state to state. some states even have sore loser rules. some say if you run in one party you can't come back in the general. so it is not simple. but someone with his money could cause a lot of mischief for the republican party if he chooses to go that route. >> a lot of people say if donald trump runs as an independent that would be a sure win for the democrats. trump does say he wants to be sure that he is treated fairly in the republican primaries. errol? >> cnn has been getting a rare look at what daily life is like inside of syria. the country that has been ravaged by civil war for the past four years. for those living in the relatively protected capital city it still meant dealing with many hardships. we have this report from damascus. [ horn sounding ]
>> reporter: driving in damascus had become difficult since the onset of the civil war. there's a lot of traffic obviously because of many check points in the city. one thing that's become hard is actually getting fuel there are certain days where there won't be any fuel at all. where the stations are closed but very often in the summer people have to wait very long. some tell us they wait hours in lines trying to get das gasoline. that's what we are going to try to do right now. the fuel prices have really increased. it makes life very dichlt you can pay as much as a fifth of your salary just for gasoline. it is tough because it's not just fuel that's gotten more expensive but pretty much all other goods, as well. it really is difficult to move your way forward in these gas lines. i'm not very good at it. trying to force your way in to these little spaces and what
happens is people get angry. there's a lot of honking going on and sometimes fights break out here. so what's happened is the syrians have deployed military personnel or security personnel to these gas stations to make sure that people don't break out in to fist fights. the way these gas stations work is you have one or two lines for regular people, and then you will have a line for the military, which obviously means they get fuel quicker. and then you have a line for government workers. so there is a hierarchy here, as well. the other problem that people deal with is aside from the fact that it takes very long to get fuel, it's become more expensive. people that we have been speaking to here at the gas station say the fuel prices have increased four fold. it is four times as expensive today as it was a year ago. of course the prices keep rising as the crisis keeps going on. it has some dips, as well. there are times when the
government can get more fuel and the prices will decrease for a while but by and large they keep going up. so, getting fuel is something that is really important to people here and certainly something that isn't easy. cnn, damascus. >> the u.s. secretary of state has a new warning if congress rejects the iran nuclear deal. the agreement gives iran some relief from economic sanctions in exchange for scaling back its nuclear program. >> the clock is ticking because congress has until next month to act on the deal. john kerry said if the agreement fails, the u.s. would have to impose sanctions on anyone doing business with iran going forward with and that could actually result in retaliation. >> we turn around and nix the deal and say you have to obey our rules on the sanctions any way. that is a recipe, my friends, business people here, for the american dollar to cease to be the reserve currency of the

experts safely removed a world war ii bomb found in london. they discovered the rusty weapon buried in a basement. >> there it is. it is not the first bomb found like this in the british capital, may not be the last either. it is a reminder of the horrors of war. >> london's darkest hour during world war ii. thousands upon thousands of german bombs raining down on the city. >> eight months in history simply known as the blitz. each dot here represents a strike in london. pull back and you can see it is enormous. but some never exploded and generations later they are still
being unearthed. the latest a 500-pound bomb found by builders in east london. authorities quickly evacuated more than 100 residents. some to a nearby school. >> one of my boys was upstairs and he said, mom, they found a bomb around the corner. >> not really scary per se. it happens quite a lot. >> residents may be fairly nonchal atlanta about an unexploded bomb a few blocks away but you have to remember in the '40s this instilled terror in the people of london. roughly 30,000 londoners would lose their lives among the rubble. bomb disposal experts, veterans of the wars in iraq and afghanistan, successfully diffused and removed the explosive. it is unknown how many bombs from world war ii remain entombed under london. with the 75th anniversary of the battle of britain this summer,
these bombs serve as a reminder of the horrors of war. ian lee, cnn, london. this next one is for the married couples out there, unlike us. do you love your spouse enough to marry them again? how about not once with, not twice but 12 times. do you love your spouse enough to marry them 12 times. a canadian couple has done just that. >> reporter: with a majestic backdrop of glaciers and'sbergs, karl and sandy, who got married off the coast of greenland two weeks ago. unlike most brides and grooms there were no cold feet or wedding day jitters here. these two have done this before. 12 times in different countries. >> this is our marriage certificate from tim buck tu. >> they have certificates from half of the ceremonies. karl likes to joke that his wife can't divorce him because no
lawyer in the country could dissolve all of their marriages. >> it will be for better or worse until death do us part because she has no choice. >> too many weddings and places. >> it would be too expensive. >> sandy a dentist and karl a retired construction company owner got married the first time 11 years ago in south africa. sandy lost their wedding certificate. on a trip to west africa, karl found a local official to marry them again. with an islamic ceremony in the sub-saharan desert. they loved it so much it inspired future wed withings. a hindu ceremony in nepal. traditional ceremonies in ethiopia, mozambique. in each they embrace local customs. >> so we had 30 people spitting. >> that's their tradition. rather than confetti, spit in the air. >> so we were wet. >> how many of these ceremonies did the bride plan? >> none.
not one. >> reporter: it's all karl. for some, he spent months secretly planning the surprise. for vegas, it was an impromptu decision. >> you hunk-a-hunk-a burning love. >> reaffirm he's in love with me. >> reporter: the couple will marry again in mongolia next month. karl may take a break after that but admits he likes the weddings and the honeymoons. >> i am a romantic but after the tenth time doesn't it lose its magic. >> i would think so. on that note thank you for watching. >> i like switching with out my partners. >> wow. >> rosemary church is next. more cnn newsroom after. this anchor partners, i mean. anchor partners. rituals one of the foote happens at the water's edge. here, they must look their best. smooth, beautiful skin is an advantage. the others can only hide in shame. introducing the new dr. scholl's

britain find themselves living among heaps of trash. cnn is inside the jungle attica lay. >> i'm errol barnett. a welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. >> i'm rosemary church. thanks for joining us here on "cnn newsroom." >> and we begin with u.s. politics in the state of michigan. that's where republican presidential candidate donald trump had his first campaign event since last week's debate. >> he was asked about his chances with women and hispanic voters, key demographics. many feel that his speeches and comments have alienated those key groups. here's his response to that. >> i think we're going to do very well with the hispanic vote. we're going to do great with the women vote. if you look at in nevada they did the poll and i'm leading in the hispanic vote. i create jobs and i will be
greati creating tremendous numbers of jobs and the women's health issues. i'm for that. i watched jeb bush give the worst answer the other day. romney possibly lost the election for a lot of reasons but one of the big reasons was his 47%. that was a disaster. i think that jeb's answer on women's health issues is a disaster for him. now, he then went and he said he misspoke. how do you misspeak about that? i will be great on women's health issues. i cherish women. and i will be great on women's health issues. believe me. >> meantime, former florida governor jeb bush is proposing his plan to fight isis and
islamic extremism. >> bush says he would impose a no-fly zone over zero yeah and embed troops with iraqi forces. he took aim at hillary clinton and barack obama for pulling troops out of iraq too quickly. >> that was the fatal error creating the void that isis moved in to fill and iran has exploited to the full as well. isis grew while the united states disengaged from the middle east and ignored the threat. where was the secretary of state? where was secretary of state clinton in all of this? like the president himself, she had opposed the surge. then joined in claiming credit for its success then stood by as the hard-won victory was thrown away. and all of her record-setting travels she stopped by iraq exactly once. >> jeb bush there. two new polls show donald trump
still leading the field of republican presidential candidates. >> but there are some changes in the middle of the pack. dana bash has details. >> reporter: in the first contest state of iowa, donald trump is leading for the first time according to a new suffolk university poll edging out wisconsin governor scott walker who spent months treading lightly around trump. >> donald trump is using the tired talking points of the democrats and they didn't work in the past and won't work in iowa. >> reporter: donald trump said he won't rule out running as an independent. >> i have to keep that door open. if i'm not treated fairly i may very well use that door. >> reporter: and the bombastic billionaire is defying convention once again admitting to and owning being a whiner. >> and i'm a whiner and i keep whining and whining until i win. >> reporter: trump is trying to
redeem himself female investigators. >> i cherish women. i will be so good to women. i will work hard to protect women. >> reporter: the iowa poll sews that despite controversial remarks about women, trump is winning with female voters in the first caucus state. >> vul glarity does not equate with a vision for the country. >> reporter: trump's lead has narrowed in new hampshire. on the upswing two breakout stars. >> we're like the little engine that can. john kasich catapulted from barely registering to third place. conservative voters in the live free or die state not turned off about comments about same-sex marriage. >> i went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be
gay. >> and carly fiorina moving up in iowa and new hampshire. >> cnn political commentator tara sedmayor joins me to talk more about donald trump and his surge in support with voters. donald trump was in michigan tuesday night holding his first press conference and campaign event since the gop debate and he is winning more support than his rivals despite the extraordinary things he has been saying and doing. how do you explain that? >> listen, donald trump has tapped into a nerve in the american electorate of people who are fed up they are fed up with business as business as usual, and donald trump is the opposite of all those things. i think it's interesting. to me he's running the campaign
like a reality show, the same way he was running the "apar "apprentice" and capitalizing on the emotion that people feel when they see someone that says it like it is. it's like the tabloid aspect of american politics that draws people to that kind of mud slinging and i don't think it's good. i think eventually it's going to wear off. how soon, i'm not sure. all of this is based purely on emotion and no substance thus far. >> and the problem is he is a loose cannon. the republican party machine must be very unsettled by what's happening. the other presidential candidates are hardly getting a look in. what happens if trump wins the republican nomination, what's that going to mean for the party. is it possible? >> i don't think that donald trump is going to win the nomination. i think this is a phenomenon
that we have never seen before. and you are correct that the party officials and folks in washington have no idea what to do. we have never seen anything like this before in american politics. so he defies the laws of political physics and gravity here. everyone is trying to figure it out as they go along. i don't think that donald trump is going to make it through the primary season and get nominated. this act can only go so far. when people have to pull the lever and vote for someone, i don't know that donald trump is going to make it -- is going to be that person. i think they like it now because it is entertaining. >> what happens if he doesn't win the nomination and decides to run as an independent? what is the likely impact going to be on the republican party and of course those presidential candidates who haven't had much of a the say and on hillary clinton's future? >> it would be a disaster for the republican party.
this happened in '92 when ross perot siphoned off enough of the vote to allow bill clinton to win. and that was because ross perot took double digits away from george h.w. bush. if donald trump decides to run as an independent, hand the presidency to the democrats, whoever that may be. >> you mentioned hillary clinton. i want to talk about her and her e-mails, that of course the issue that has dogged her campaign and continues to do so. her private e-mail server is being turned over to the justice department. how likely will that put to rest the trust issues she has with voters? >> i think this is going to get worse. we are hearing more stories and more reports coming out. two inspector generals who have investigated this and found
classified e-mails in one of the batches they reviewed more closely after she said she never sent any classified material. it just came out today or maybe yesterday i guess it was that her server that the inspector general found that there were two top secret e-mails that were sent out of the four they examined more closely, which can be very problematic for her. what she says in public and what she says to a judge are two very different things and a different set of standards. this is going to be a drip, drip, drip, drip, every couple of weeks we have more e-mails coming out and the justice department, two inspectors general investigating this mre closely. this is not good for hillary clinton in any way, shape, or form and not going to alleviate her trust issues with the american people. this is a pattern of behavior with her. this has gone back for 25, 30
years between her and her husband. >> we will be talking about hillary clinton's problems with e-mails and donald trump of course. tara setmayer, thank you for joining us. another story we are following, china's central bank has announced its second currency devaluation in as many days. this is a move that donald trump criticized on tuesday in his speech in michigan. >> i think you have to do something to rein in china. they devalued their currency today. they are making it absolutely impossible for the united states to compete. and nobody does anything. >> the people's bank of china said its reference rate 1.6% lower today following tuesday's cut of 1.9%. the devaluation puts the chinese currency at 6.33 yuan to the u.s. dollar. >> and we have seen the
devaluation of the yuan can have a far-reaching impact all over the globe. cnn's richard quest explains why it matters. >> reporter: when you look at how the yuan moved you see all these effects whether it's going up or down. in this case, obviously it's falling. immediately we see the dollar getting stronger. and that means more exports from the united states. they become more expensive. a clear negative. and chinese goods, they of course become cheaper which means a more competitive battle. in its short and easy terms, devaluing the yuan is bad for u.s. exporters and brilliant for chinese exporters but it's there's more than that. you have to look at other currencies closely tied to the yuan that are losing value. the australian and new zealand dollars and brazil's real were
up down because commodity prices also, they are priced in dollars. and those countries are big commodity exporters, oils, minings, metals, they are all losing ground. at its most simplistic you can see the yuan's move in chinese exports and u.s. exports and the rest of the world. in the wider picture over the longer term you are left with the conclusion there is a much bigger political play underway. richard quest, cnn, new york. and let's go ahead and show you the current markets in the asia-pacific region and it's all in the red. the shanghai composite down flax. the hang seng down 2%. the any kaye down 1.5% right now. >> we'll keep close eye on the numbers. a young u.s. couple is
accused of planning to join isis. they were arrested at a mississippi airport over the weekend after allegedly spending the past several months trying to communicate with isis. >> a judge ordered them held without bail on tuesday after they attempted to travel to syria. both former students of mississippi state university. inside syria and iraq isis is fighting to expand its territory. >> at the same time, the u.s. is look for ways to stop the militants without committing troops on the ground. barbara starr has more on the american plans and their limitations. >> reporter: american f-16s at any time could begin striking from their air base here in turkey. some strikes may be aimed at the turkish-syrian border where isis forces just moved in after al qaeda left. strikes will try to pave the way for putting u.s.-trained
moderate rebels back into syria after their unit was decimated in an attack. >> this has been a difficult process to vet these people, to train them, to get them back into what is a very fluid, dynamic situation. >> the pentagon trying to figure out how to salvage the training effort. 70 additional rebels may finish their training in the next few weeks. >> we have to find a group to be the boots on the ground. the ones we have chosen right now aren't it. >> reporter: ash carter moving beyond just working with the rebels. >> there are other capable ground forces fight the regime and isil. i gave the example of the syrian kurds but we'd like to see more. >> reporter: the strikes could be aimed at targets in iraq. isis on a rampage in mosul where up to 300 civil servants may
have been killed in recent days. the u.s. had evidence that a mass killing was being planned but no way to stop it, a u.s. official tells cnn. isis also still imagining forces around the baji oil refinery. but the u.s. taking extra steps to keep air force pilots safe. when bombing runs are made, the u.s. wants to send up stand by rescue helicopters in case a pilot goes down. right now, they would have to come from further away in erbil in iraq.
barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. police tell cnn an 80-year-old man set himself on fire during a protest outside the japanese embassy in seoul. bystanders rushed to help put the fire out. >> the man was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for non-critical burns. the protest was calling for japan to apologize for forcing korean women to work as comfort women during world war ii. four years into a civil war life for average syrians is bleak. coming up next we'll look at how people in damascus cope with fighting and the lack of basic needs. stay with us on "cnn newsroom."

or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face, lips, tongue or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by

(the lion sleeps tonight.) woman snoring take the roar out of snore. yet another innovation only at a sleep number store. cnn has been getting a rare look at what daily life is like inside syria, a country that has been ravaged by civil war for the past four years. >> even in the capital city, tasks that should be simple like getting fuel for your vehicle is a challenge.
our fred pleitgen is there. [ horns ]. >> reporter: driving here in damascus has actually become really difficult since the onset of the civil war. there is a lot of traffic because of the many check points here in the city but one thing that has become really hard is actually getting fuel. what you have is there are certain days where there won't be any fuel at all and the gas stations will be closed. but very often the people have to wait very, very long. some tell us they spend hours in line trying to get gasoline. that's what we're going to try to do right now. the fuel prices have really increased and makes life very difficult. you can pay as much as a fifth of your salary just for gasoline. it's really tough because it's not just fuel that has got more expensive but other goods as
well. it really is difficult to move your way forward in these gasoline lines. i'm not good at it, trying to force your way into these spaces and people get angry. there is a lot of honking and fights break out here. so the syrians have deployed military personnel or security personnel to the gas stations to make sure that people don't break out into fist fights. and the way the gas stations work is you have one or two lines for regular people and you have a line for the military, which obviously means they get fuel quicker and you have a line for government workers. there is a hierarchy here as well. the other big problem that people deal with is aside from the fact it takes long to get fuel, it's become more expensive. and people that we've been speaking to here at the gas station say that the fuel surprises have increased four-fold. it's four times as expensive today as it was a year ago.
and the prices keep rising as the crisis keeps going on. there will be times when the government will be able to get more fuel and the prices will decrease for a little while. but by and large they do keep going up. so getting fuel is something that is really important to people here and certainly something that isn't easy. fred pleitgen, cnn, damascus. there are new fears over the water supply in three u.s. states after a toxic waste spill that resulted in what you see behind us. it turned a river in colorado this mustard color. >> the animus river is starting to look clear again in parts but residents are starting to worry about the long-term health effects. >> reporter: the governor of colorado touring the aftermath of the 3 million gallons of contaminated water that spilled into the animus river and
neighboring states. it turned the clear water into this mustard color. wildlife officials placed fish in cages six days ago. only one died and they don't know if it's related to the water. >> at this point we don't feel there is any potential risk for human health, that, based on the preliminary results, the levels of the metals appear to have returned to pre-incident levels. >> reporter: it sent arsenic levels 26 times higher and lead levels 12,000 times higher. the epa is warning residents not to drink the water. there are also concerns about crop irrigation as many local farmers rely on the river. >> to have one of your major rivers yellow orange with that
oxidized iron and zinc clearly in the water that's the worst thing you can imagine. >> reporter: an epa team was sent to clean an abandoned gold mine but the good intention back fired. instead of pumping it out it caused it to flow into the river. the epa is under intense critici criticism for not issuing a public alert. >> we are ticked off but now what do we do? >> it's a main artery of this whole county and region and it goes for the same everybody lives and uses the river. >> reporter: david muller owns a river rafting company and his business shut down with no one allowed on the river. >> this is our life blood. this will negatively impact our bottom line. >> reporter: the water color has returned to normal and colorado
officials say the water chemistry levels are where they should be. but residents are still nervous about all of this and feel that the epa still has a lot of explaining to do. dan simon, cnn, durango, colorado. >> that nervousness is totally understandable, isn't it? >> absolutely. we're going to take a short break. but coming up a tranquil beach in cuba was once the scene of an ill-fated invasion. but some cubans are hoping restored relations will bring an invasion of american tourists.

a warm welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and of course all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. your last half hour of the day with the both of us. u.s. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton is handing of her private e-mail server to the justice department. she faced criticism for not using a secure server while she was secretary of state. and donald trump keeps rising in popularity. two new polls show him leading in iowa and new hampshire. debris recovered near the crash site of malaysia airlines flight 17 may be part of a russian-made missile. but it's too early to say for certain. pro russian rebels and ukrainian forces blame one another for downing the plane. police in missouri released this video that they say tyrone
harris waving a gun during protests in ferguson. he is accused of firing at officers and was critically injured when they fired back. harris posted pictures of himself online holding guns. police believe this is one of those images. preparations are underway at the u.s. embassy in cuba for a flag-raising ceremony on friday. it's the first time the stars and stripes will fly over the building in 54 years. >> secretary of state john kerry will be on hand for the moment. now that ties are being restored. cubans are hoping that the site of the bay of pigs invasion will be a place for visitors.
>> reporter: what the area doesn't have at least not yet is many american visitors. luis garcia rents out four bedroom in his house to tourists. he is starting his own business thanks to a greater acceptance of private commerce by the communist government. he is building a second hotel around the corner to accommodate in what he feels will be a surge of americans visiting his town. many people are getting their homes ready, he says, the future looks promise for relations between the two countries become agreeable again. we will have a lot of tourism. for more than 50 years relations between the united states and cuba were anything but agreeable. something that residents of this area know all too well.
1961 a brigade landed here to overthr overthrow fidel castro. in the u.s. it's known as the bay of pigs invasion. this sign is where the cuban government soldiers halted the advance of the invading forces. it's as close as the united states came to toppling fidel castro. roadside monuments mark where cuban soldiers died in the fighting. tanks greet visitors to the town's museum. the wall in front of elliot lopez's home is riddled with bullet holes from the invasion. around mid might we heard a lot of noise and everyone was crying like i was because we thought the world was ending. but with castro's victory over the united states, the cuban
leader consolidated power. hotel owner luis says he supports the cuban government but wants his town to become known as a place that welcomes americans. i've waited a long time for this, he says, hopefully everything that has been promised and that we hope for will happen. we cubans, just like the americans, feel like this is the best solution. hope for the future of u.s.-cuban relations in a place with a painful past. some migrants desperate to reach europe are ending up in the so-called jungle of calais france. it used to be a rubbish dump. >> more migrants are calling it home. our kellie morgan walks us through the camp.
♪ >> reporter: we're at the main entry i'd get you'd call it to the jungle. it's the close toast that road there, which is the road that leads to the port. as you can see here there have been some toilets put in. you are getting basic sanitation. there are lights that have been put in recently. there is a water pump where people are getting water and having a bit of a wash. ♪ we've come more into the center of the jungle now. this here is a mosque and this area here is known as the afghanistan section and so you've got all along here rows of shops, ten or 12 restaurants. it's becoming a very permanent settlement. this was originally a rubbish dump. you can see there is rubbish
everywhere. a lot of it was here before. but since the migrants arrived it's grown as well. so sewage, no rubbish collection, pretty squall id conditions to be living in. this facility has sprung up in the last five weeks. it's a medical facility. two doctors and three nurses on duty every day and they see around 60 people. the main conditions they are seeing are injuries as a result of trying to make the crossing, things like broken legs, scratches and cuts on hands from the razor wire. but they are increasingly seeing diseases like skabys, eye infections and chest infections as a result of the rather nasty living conditions here. this is the christian church. most of the materials have been donated by local volunteers, particularly the christian community. around 100 people come through here each day to pray.
this little building is becoming increasingly popular. it's a school that's been set up. what's largely being taught are french lessons. what's happening is that migrants are increasingly realizing that it's difficult to get across to england because of the increased security. so what they're deciding to do is seek asylum in france. in order to do that, they need to learn french. so this area here is full of housing for sudanese people. there are so many homes tightly tucked in here. really very permanent. the people here don't know how long they're going to be here. >> some insightful reporting from kellie morgan in calais france. next here on "cnn newsroom." >> i was transported into another state where i did not know the language. i was disoriented and afraid and

economic benefit to the companies, consumers are going to demand that their protects are not tainted by forced labor and supply chains. >> reporter: rani's story began when she was 7. she was taken from her family and sold into slavery in southern india. she stopped eating and became so sick she almost died. >> i was transported to another state where i did not know the language. i was disoriented, afraid and alone, crying for my mom to come and get me and she didn't come. my captored used intimidation and force to control me. they put me as destitute and dying. >> reporter: rani's captors sold her for prostitution. how deep do you think this problem is? >> we know it's a $150 billion industry. according to international labor
organization, there are 21 million slaves today. in the world. 19 million are trafficked by individuals and enterprises which is private companies. that is why i'm bringing the freedom seal to the world because now we have a tool that we can use to communicate we as a society are ready for transparency. >> amazing work rani is doing there. if you want to learn more about the freedom project go to our website, cnn.com/freedom. and you can find out how other businesses are fighting against modern-day slavery. city officials in los angeles are getting creative to conserve water in the reservoir. pedram javaheri joins us now to explain what that means. >> it's a fascinating story and a big talker for a lot of people as well. what the city officials have done is they have taken 100
million plastic balls that are filled partially with water and putting them over four reservoirs in an effort to keep the sun from reaching the sun reaching the surface of the reservoir. >> is that safe? >> they say it's bpa free and each cost 36 cents to produce and will save 300 million gallons of water per year from evaporating out of the reservoir. this is what it looks like as they deploy the spheres. they bunch up together and it disables the sun reaching the surface of the water and reduces algae growth. animals drinking out of the reservoirs. all of it in an effort to
preserve what water they do have in that region. in europe we have incredible temperatures in warsaw, well above average for 15 days. berlin, 102 degrees fahrenheit. hottest temperature all time. 5 degrees celsius above average in recent days. and water levels in the rivers and hydroelectric power plants impacted by this. the drought in place exceptional in germany and poland and austria. and look at the footage showing you the reduced water levels. a couple years ago, water was at its highest levels in 100 years and now we're seeing this scenario when it comes to the droughts that are in place over much of europe. we have people in california trying to preserve the little water they have. and in europe the water starting

welcome back, everyone. well, there's new hope that the family of a lost girl in pakistan will soon be found. the girl who is both deaf and mute entered the country with no identity papers yearis ago. >> now she has gained attention with a fictional bollywood film. >> she was just a child when she accidentally crossed the border from india into pakistan. now years later, the girl in her early 20s remains lost and searching for her family. the problem, she is deaf and mute. and can only communicate with sign language. the girls who has only vague
memories of her past was alone and had no identification when she crossed one of the world's most militarized borders. pakistani soldiers bought her to a home for lost children in lahore. she was given a muslim name, fatimah until it was related she was hindu by the way she was praying. a charity gave her the name gita. the foundation has been pleading with the indian government to locate gita's parents. now a new film starring a bollywood actor centers around a pakistani girl lost in india. ♪ the character finds the girl and tries to reunite her with her family. the film has given gita's case new attention.
india's high commissioner to pakistan recently visited gita and vowed to help her find her family saying in spite of differences the two countries can work together. pakistan and india are neighboring countries. pakistan and indy have always extended cooperation in humanitarian matters. >> reporter: gita lives in a home provided by the foundation where she helps care for other children. four families have come forward claiming that gita is their daughter but none have been confirmed. gita expressed her wish to go home. >> translator: india is very nice. i am not happy here. that is my homeland. >> reporter: michael holmes, cnn. the best of luck to her. >> let's hope it has a happy
ending. kim kardashian is facing a new backlash from the u.s. food and drug administration. the fda issued a warning letter to the maker of the drug diclegis following this post. >> in it, kardashian praised the drug's ability to treat her morning sickness but she failed to mention the possible side effects which is against the fda's rules. of course it is hard to avoid news about the kardashians no matter how hard you try. >> for one local news anchor all this attention has gotten to be just a bit too much. take a look. >> i'm having a good friday so i refuse to talk about the kardashians today. i can't do it. i've had enough kardashians. i can't take more stories on this show. >> he left. >> how would you like it if your daughter named her pet john?

nefertiti. welcome to viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm rosemary church and this is "cnn newsroom." and we begin here in the united states with a trio of high-profile contenders for the white house. two of them trying to quell controversies. the third, perhaps, inviting controversy of his own with comments about the rise of isis. let's begin with donald trump. the reality tv star and republican front runner brought down the house at a campaign stop in michigan. trump railed on his opponents and doubled down on his controversial stances. he started with u.s. trade policies with china. >> china has no respect for president obama whatsoever. they're making it impossible for our businesses, our companies to compete. they think we're run by a bunch of idiots.
>> trump blasted mexico for sending what he says are unwanted people into the u.s. and he vowed to create more u.s. jobs by reducing illegal immigration. >> mexico is going to pay for the wall. and they're going to be happy about it. you know what? they're going to be happy about it. because the cost of the wall is peanuts compared to the kind of money they're making. >> a pair of new polls from iowa and new hampshire showed trump still leading the republican field despite an uneven debate performance and a controversial comment that many people think referred to a female journalist's menstrual cycle. trump is confident he can win over the skeptics. >> i think we're going to do very well with the hispanic vote and great with the women vote. if you look at in nevada they did the poll and i'm leading in the hispanic vote because i
create jobs and i will be creating tremendous numbers of jobs. so i think we're going to do great. >> trump has also been critical of democratic front runner hillary clinton and her use of a private e-mail server which she -- while she was secretary of state. clinton now says she will hand over that server to justice department investigators. cnn global affairs correspondent elise labott has more. >> reporter: originally, hillary clinton said she would not hand over her private server. that was a request by the chairman of the house select committee on benghazi. and that was seen more of a political move by the chairman. but now secretary clinton says she will hand over her private e-mail server and a thumb drive containing all of her work-related e-mails that has been kept by her attorney, david
kendall to the justice department. in a statement provided to cnn, clinton spokesman says that clinton pledged to comply with the government's security. she's not going to add fuel to the fire to any of these house panels but wants to be seen as cooperating with the government concerns. this taking place as investigators of clinton's private e-mail server have morphed into various investigations not only on classified information on the server but many former staff have been asked to hand over their e-mails. on tuesday, the inspector general of the intelligence community said it has identified at least five e-mails that contained information on clinton's private e-mail server that has since been classified. so a lot of concerns about
whether classified information was kept on that server. secretary clinton now saying she will hand over that server to satisfy concerns by the government. elise labbott, cnn, washington. for a closer look at how hillary clinton's e-mail troubles are like tly to play o i spoke to tara setmayer and asked how trump continues to gain support from voters. >> he is running his campaign like a reality show, the same way he was running the "apprentice" this is all about the trump brand and about his personality and he is capitalizing on the emotion that people feel when they see someone that just says it like it is and they go, yeah. it's like the tabloid aspect of american politics that draws
people to that kind of mud slinging. i don't think it's good. i think eventually it's going to wear off. how soon i'm not sure. all of this is based purely on emotion and no substance. >> and the problem is, he is a loose cannon, isn't he? the republican party machine must be very unsettled by what's happening. the other presidential candidates are hardly getting a look in. what happens if trump wins the republican nomination? what's that going to mean for the party? is it even possible, do you think? >> i don't think that donald trump is going to win the nomination. this is a phenomenon that we've never seen before and the party officials and folks in washington have no idea what to do. we've never seen anything like this before in american politics. he defies the laws of political physics and gravity here. everyone is trying to figure it out as they go along. >> what happens if trump doesn't win the nomination and decides
to run as an independent. what is the likely impact going to be on the republican party and of course those presidential candidates who haven't had much of a say and also on hillary clinton's future? >> that would be a disaster for the republican party. this happened in '92 when ross perot ran as an independent and he siphoned off a significant portion of the vote. bill clinton won with 42% of the vote in 1992 because ross perot took double digits away from george h.w. bush. so if donald trump decided to run as an independent, it would be a disaster. you might as well hand the presidency to the democrats, whoever that might be. >> and you mentioned hillary clinton. wanted to talk about her and her e-mails, that of course the issue that has dogged her campaign and continues to do so. her private e-mail server is
being turned over to the justice department. how likely is it that that will put to rest some of the trust issues she has with voters? >> i think this is going to get worse. every week we are hearing more stories. you had two inspector generals here who have investigated this and they have found there were in fact collilassified e-mails the batch they looked at more closely after she said i never sent classified material. it came out today or yesterday, i guess it was, that her server, that the inspector general found there were two top-secret e-mails that were sent out of those four that they examined more closely which can be very problematic for her. >> we will still be talking about hillary clinton's problems with e-mails and donald trump of course. tara setmayer thank you very much.
jeb bush is proposing his plan to fight isis and islamic extremism. he spoke to supporters late tuesday in california. he says he would impose a no-fly zone over syria and embed u.s. troops with iraqi forces. he also took aim at president obama and hillary clinton for pulling combat troops out of iraq too soon. >> and where was the secretary of state? where was secretary of state clinton in all of this? like the president, himself, she had opposed the surge, then joined in claiming credit for its success, then stood by as that hard-won victory by american and allied forces was thrown away. it was a case of blind haste to get out and call the tragic consequences somebody else's problem. rushing away from danger can be every bit as unwise as rushing into danger and the costs have been grievous. >> and hillary clinton's
campaign says that bush's remarks are a bold attempt to rewrite history. a senior clinton adviser says it was the invasion of iraq by president george w. bush that gave rise to isis. police in missouri have released a video that shows a man raising a gun at police. you see him here in the white t-shirt. he is accused of firing at officers and was critically injured when they fired back. now harris is facing a number of charges including assault on law enforcement. his family insists he was running for his life. a white police officer in arlington, texas, has been fired and could face criminal charges after allegedly shooting and killing an unarmed african-american teenager. arlington's police chief says
that rookie officer brad miller was fired for exercising poor judgment. miller was responding to a burglar call at a car dealership where he killed 19-year-old christian taylor. police say there was no physical altercation between officer miller and taylor. >> cnn has more details about what happened that fateful day at the car dealership including reaction from the brothers of the victim who are trying to cope with their brother's actions that day but also the actions of the officer. >> reporter: it has been a swift and quick response from the arlington police department firing the white police officer that shot and killed an unarmed black teenager. the night 19-year-old christian taylor vandalized and broke into an arlington, texas, car dealership, brad miller made troubling and catastrophic decisions. that is the scathing critique
from the police chief. >> officer miller exercised inappropriate judgment. >> reporter: this is how the events unfolded leading to the shooting death of christian taylor. taylor had driven his jeep into the showroom area of the dealership. taylor is spotted inside. >> a guy in the building has a hat on. >> reporter: officer miller broke away from his partner and entered the building alone against protocol. miller says that miller was screaming and moving toward him. investigators say miller fired his first shot when taylor was seven to ten feet away. the officer's partner and training officer then deployed his taser and right after that, miller fired three more times, killing the 19-year-old football player. miller feared that taylor would
overpower him but the chief has serious concerns about the justification over the shooting. >> this fear was a result of his poor decision to enter the building without assistance. >> reporter: christian's older brothers can't explain the 19-year-old's behavior in that car dealership lot. >> it was tough to watch. we just know that wasn't him in that video, not in his right mind, the little brother we grew up with. we're still looking for answers as well. >> reporter: taylor's family doesn't understand how the young football player who was 5'7" and weighed 170 pounds could hurt two police officers. >> do you think there's any way that christian could have threatened these officers' lives? >> knowing my brother he wouldn't dare. he didn't threaten anybody every. he never would harm anybody. >> i just fail to see the
immediate threat they would have had if he is unarmed to feel like that was the best option or the best route to go. >> arlington police officers agree with the family and a rookie police officer has been fired and a grand jury will decide if officer brad miller will face criminal charges. in south korea police tell cnn an 80-year-old man set himself on fire during a protest outside the japanese embassy in seoul. bystanders rushed to help put the fire out. the man was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for non-critical burns. the protest was calling for japan to apologize for forcing korean women to work as so-called comfort women during world war ii. we'll take a short break now. shocks in europe are falling hard as china devalues its currency for the second day
running. we will have the numbers and take you live to beijing to find out why many say the government is not playing fair. plus, chaos on a greek island. police call in reinforcements after clashes break out among migrants waiting to get immigration papers. bill's got a very tough 13lie here...... looks like we have some sort of sea monster in the water hazard here. i believe that's a "kraken", bruce. it looks like he's going to go with a nine iron. that may not be enough club... well he's definitely going to lose a stroke on this hole. if you're a golf commentator, you whisper. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do.
breaking news this hour out of europe where financial markets are getting hit hard by china's announcement it was devaluing its currency yet again. there are the markets. look at those numbers. the arrows all heading down. germany's dax is more than 2.5% there. in france, the market's down nearly 2%. extraordinary numbers. and this is now the second day in a row that the people's bank of china has devalued the yuan. as season season's steven dejong joins us with the details. the devaluation affects exports and has had a negative impact on the european markets.
explain china's thinking behind the strategy and why it's doing it now. >> reporter: the timing was certainly interesting. tuesday's announcement came days after poor export data signaling another headache for the lowing economy here in china. but china now being the world's second largest economy and a major trading partner with global -- with the globe's major economies this latest news is sending ripple effects throughout the international community. that's why in the u.s., for example, but have presidential candidate donald trump implying that china is a currency manipulator. this is something you will be hearing more and more. this is not something new. the u.s. has long accused china of keeping its currency artificially low to help exporters. but the chinese central bank
says it is letting market force play a bigger role in the valuing of the yuan which had been artificially strong despite a strong economy. and they say it is more reflective of the reality of a slowing economy here. >> and as we mentioned, china has devalued the currency for a second day. how likely it will devalue the currency again? or is this it for now? >> reporter: that's right, 3.5% devaluation in two days, that's something we haven't seen in 20 years. this is big news. but the central bank today actually came out with a lengthy statement trying to say the initial adjustment -- this initial shock would not persist because according to the chinese central bank there are several factors at work here including
the economy despite growing at a lower 7% rate it is still respectable in a global environment compared to previous years of double-digit growth, slower by still 7% is a respectable figure. secondly, china's trade surplus is huge against many countries. and also the currency, the yuan has been increasingly globalized. that's why this move is needed to basically make this currency exchange rate more market-oriented, rosemary. >> steven jiang many thanks to you. the u.s. financial markets did not respond well to the currency devaluation. the dow lost 212 points to finish down more than 1% on tuesday. the nasdaq and the s&p also lost ground. as we've seen in the
financial markets the devaluation of the yuan can have a far-reaching impact around the world. cnn's richard quest explains why it matters. >> reporter: when you look at how the yuan moved you see all these effects, whether it's going up or down. in this case, obviously it's falling. immediately we see the dollar getting stronger and that means more exports from the united states. they become more expensive. a clear negative. and chinese goods, they of course, become cheaper which means a more competitive battle. devaluing the yuan is bad for u.s. exporters and brilliant for chinese exporters. but there's more to it than that. you have to look at other currencies closely tied to the yuan that are also losing value. the australian and new zealand dollars and brazil's real were
down because commodity prices also, they are priced in dollars. and those countries are big commodity exporters. oils, minings, metals, they're all losing ground. at its most simplistic. you can see the yuan's move as chinese exports and the u.s. exports and the rest of the world. in the wider picture over the longer term you are left with the conclusion that there is a much bigger political play underway. richard quest, cnn, new york. a mississippi couple is behind bars after they were accused of conspiring and attempting to support isis. a judge ordered them held without bail on tuesday after they tried to travel to syria over the weekend. the trip was allegedly disguised as their honeymoon. the 22-year-old man is a son of
a imam in mississippi and the 20-year-old women's father is a mississippi police officer. both accused are former students of mississippi state university. meantime inside syria and iraq isis is fighting to expand its territory and the u.s. is trying to find new ways to stop the group. barbara starr has more. >> reporter: american f-16s at any time could begin striking isis from their base here in turkey. some strikes may be aimed at the turkish-syrian border where isis forces just moved in after al qaeda left. strikes will try to pave the way for putting u.s.-trained moderate rebels back into syria after their unit was decimated in an attack. >> this has been a difficult process to vet these people to train them, to get them back
into what is a very fluid and dynamic situation. >> reporter: the pentagon trying to figure out how to salvage the training effort. more than 70 additional rebels may finish their training in the next few weeks. >> we need to find a group willing to be our boots on the ground and the ones we have chosen right now aren't it. >> reporter: defense secretary ash carter moving beyond just working with the rebels. >> there are other capable ground forces fighting both the regime and isil. i gave the example of the syrian kurds. but we'd like to see more. >> reporter: the initial strikes could also be aimed at targets in iraq. isis on a new rampage in most all where up to 300 civil servants may have been killed in recent days. the u.s. had credible intelligence a mass killing was being planned, but no way to stop it, a u.s. official tells cnn. isis also still massing forces
around the baiji oil refinery. but the u.s. taking extra steps to keep air force pilots safe. when bombing runs are made, the u.s. wants to send up helicopter rescue resources from this second base in turkey in case a pilot goes down. right now they have to come from further away in erbil in iraq. and the reason all of this is so important? isis is still bringing new fighters into syria and iraq as fast as the coalition can kill them. that is the latest u.s. intelligence estimate. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. donald trump still leads a crowded pack of republican presidential candidates but some have moved forward while others have fallen behind. the status of the gop field is just ahead.
welcome back to viewers in the united states and of course all around the world. i'm rosemary church. we do want to check the headlines this hour. china devalued its currency, its yuan for the second day in a row. the central bank set its revenu referenced rate 1.6% lower today. tuesday's devaluation sent world
financial markets tumbling. hillary clinton will hand over her private e-mail server to u.s. investigators. critics blasted her for not using a secure government server during her time as secretary of state. clinton says she has given all work-related e-mails to the state department and will continue to cooperate with the investigators. republican presidential candidate donald trump made his first campaign stop in michigan tuesday since last week's debate. he gave a speech that boasted support among women and hispanic voters, key groups in national elections. two new polls show trump leading in iowa and new hampshire but there are some changes in the middle of the pack. dana bash has the details. >> reporter: in the first contest state of iowa, donald trump is leading for the first
time according to a new suffolk university poll edging out scott walker who is now taking the gloves off. >> donald trump is using the same tired talking points of the democrats. they didn't work in the past. >> reporter: trump's rise in iowa comes as he said he won't rule out running as an independent. >> i have to keep that door open. if i'm not treated fairly i may use that door. >> reporter: and the dom pastic billionaire is defying convention again owning and admitting to being a whiner. >> i keep whining and whining until i win. >> reporter: he is trying to redeem himself with female voters. >> i cherish women. i will work hard to protect women. >> reporter: the iowa poll slows despite controversial remarks against women, trump is winning
with female voters in the first caucus state. >> vulgarity does not equate with insight. it does not equate with a vision for the country. >> reporter: trump's lead has narrowed. >> we keep plugging. >> ohio governor john kasich catapulted from barely registering to third place in new hampshire. conservative voters not turned off by comments about same-sex marriage. >> i went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. >> reporter: and carry fiorina moving up in iowa and new hampshire. the candidates not doing as well is as much of a story. chris christie's numbers have dropped so much that he is at 3%
in this new poll there. rick perry's campaign is no longer paying staff. they are asking them to volunteer. though jeb bush was not banking on a win in iowa he is in seventh place there which is troubling to some supporters. investigators examining debris near the malaysia airlines flight 17 crash site in eastern ukraine say they have made a disturbing new find. they say fragments of the debris might be from a russian-made surface-to-air missile system but they caution it's too early to know for certain. the plane was shot down last week killing off 298 people on board. evidence from a dutch investigation has indicated the jetliner was struck by a missile fired by pro-russian rebels. police on the greek island of kos are calling in
reinforcements from athens after clashes among migrants waiting to get immigration papers. the authorities couldn't provide water, shelter, food, on sanitation. the chaos is more evidence of how greece is struggling to cope with the growing number of migrants. >> reporter: immigration overload. tensions are running high on the greek island of kos, where hundreds of migrants gather in a long queue waiting to register with local authorities. the heat takes its toll. one woman faints. a father with a small child struggles through the crowd to reach the front of the line. tempers flare and several scuffles break out.
police try to reestablish control by spraying the crowd with fire extinguishers. hundreds flee in panic. and those who are left describe the conditions on the island as third-world. >> no toilets, no water. people have been waiting for more than ten years -- ten days. >> we only want to go from this island because we live in a miserable way. no bathrooms, no places to sleep in. >> reporter: kos is a few kilometers from the turkish coast making it a prime destination for thousands of migrants fleeing iraq, afghanistan, and syria. hundreds arrive daily aboard these inflatable rubber boats seeking the quickest way to
europe and what they hope will be a better life but it's the island is overwhelmed and many migrants say they reached their breaking point. >> what can i say? is this europe? if this is europe we're going back to syria. >> reporter: at least one police officer was suspended following the clash and the island's mayor says there is a risk of bloodshed if the situation degenerates first. isha sesay, cnn. a wild weather day in the united states from flash flooding that washed away cars down crowded city streets to a giant dust storm that blanketed an entire city. plus this couple is going to the chapel and going to get married over and over and over again. we'll have that just ahead. need to hire fast?

southern california forced officials to come up with a unique way to save water in reservoirs in the los angeles area. pedram javaheri is here to explain it to us. >> it's fascinating. what the city has done over four reservoirs they deployed 96 million plastic balls the size of apples filled with water. they sent in 20,000 of them on tuesday. but what the hope is here that the surface area of the water is covered up because they are weighted down and they are all bunched up together and the sun doesn't shine own the water. the scientists say they save 300 million gallons of water from evaporating in the air and algae blooms would not take over the water as well. some controversy around this, plastic into the water but the city is going to do what it can
at this point to preserve what little water they have. the sun of course shines down on the water and you have evaporation take place on the order of about a billion liters. but you put this in and it reduces the algae growth and about 36 cents per plastic ball. but it's supposed to save money when it comes to not losing water to evaporation. in parts of europe, temperatures about 5 celsius above average in the last week and a half. and a severe drought in germany and poland. video coming out of germany showing you the river levels so low, impacting the tourism and shipping industry and the hydroelectric power industry with the water levels dropping with the tremendous heat that has been in place over this region. bringing you back to the
