9:01 pm
markets in the asia pacific region are well into a new day of trading, and investors are watching the numbers closely after monday's heavy selloff. here's what it looks like so far. we bring them up. and there you see the shanghai composite down 4.33%. the other markets in positive territory. japan's nikkei up, and seoul and hong kong up more than 1% there. >> a bruised wall street will open six hours later. the dow began with a 1,000-point loss but managed to recover somewhat, ending down almost 600 points for the day. >> now some of what happens in the markets ahead depends on how things play out in asia. our will ripley joins us live from beijing. will, markets across asia look better than they did 24 hours ago. how much comfort should we take from that, and how sustainable
9:02 pm
is it? >> reporter: well, even the number the here in china, as you mentioned, they're not as drastically down as they were earlier in the day, the shanghai and shinjin. how much comfort we should take depends on who you're asking. there are some who say that the world is overreacting to what's happening here in china. but the chinese economy continues to grow at a pace many would find enviable, despite the real estate slow down. the same economist would tell you that one in 30 chinese own stock in the equity market. so these fluctuations really aren't affecting things like consumer spending, which of course the central government is trying to focus more on the chinese economy, focussing more on consumer spending and domestic consumption to improve
9:03 pm
the situation as opposed to all of the exports which continue to be the economic driver here. it is surprising that state media is barely recognizing the down turn today. consid considering for the first six months of the year it was the story that people were encouraged to invest. we talking to folks who say they believe those reports and they put in a significant portion of their savings and have watched a lot of that money evaporate in the past few months, rosemary. >> and will, august is pretty jittery month for stocks. what will they do to come up with concrete steps to help the faltering in the midst of this crisis? >> reporter: there are still tools that the chinese government has in its back
9:04 pm
pocket. it has a $546 billion pension fund and up to 30% of that will be invested in the stock market to try to boost some cash into it. there are other options despite some of the dismal numbers coming out, factory numbers low, trade numbers are down. but what the central bank here can do, the central bank could lower interest rates if they want to. there could be government investment and infrastructure, roads, highways, the high speed rail line that they're going to build ahead of the 2022 olympics. a fiscal stimulus, and china continues to crackdown on wasteful spending, inefficiency, government corruption, waste, and all those things. so there are still things that the chinese government can pull out here to try to salvage the economic situation. but, again, china's economy is still growing, just at a slow are pace than it has done in the last three decades.
9:05 pm
>> and global markets watching what's happening there. many thanks to you. a wild and volatile day on wall street saw the dow lose 3.6%. its eighth biggest one-day point loss ever and the biggest since august 2011. [ bell ringing ] >> and yet, by the closing bell, there was almost a sigh of relief, because it could have been and was in fact a whole lot worse. veteran traders say they have never seen anything like this before. many analysts were at a loss for words. richard quest has never been at a loss for words. this was a dr. jekyll/mr. hyde day. it jumped into positive areas. but what is going on, richard? >> as i watch thed that rebound
9:06 pm
was wondering what was happening. those i spoke to said there was a squeeze which caused it to come back up again. and that sort of was why it was more technical. the truth is that the pressure remains on the down side. and you saw that very clearly in the last hour and a half to two hours of trading. once that momentum had begun, it continued. and that's worrying part about this, because in the absence of an event that points in a new direction, it's very likely that we continue with this volatility for the foreseeable future. there's no reason not to. until either the fed makes it clear what it's going to do in september or the chinese give some sort of policy statement about what they're doing, because, john, the fear is that china is in some shape or form has lost control of the economy. >> all this talk about government policy, interest
9:07 pm
rates and the united states, fiscal stimulus in china. can the global economy continue on without all these extraordinary measures which have become the norm in recent years. is it now a case of taking the heroin away from the drug addict? >> you've put your finger perfectly on the problem. you can use the analogy of taking the drug away from the addict, or you can simply say we have been living in a completely unreal world for the last five to six years. which has been fueled, purely by central bank money with policies that have never, never been tested on such a scale as they are now. if you read the latest minutes of the fed, from the last meeting, long sections on how they're planning to unwind all this stuff. they're blplotting, they're
9:08 pm
planning. nobody's done it. you've got the bank of england that's got to do it, the ecb pouring more money into the economy. this quantitative easing, this unwinding of stimulus is virgin territory for the global economy. >> right now stock markets, as we know, they're driven by greed and fear, and at the moment, it's definitely fear. the vix index, the fear index is as high as it was in 2011. is it justified right now? >> in the united states, no. no. there's absolutely no reason. the check fundamentals in the united states are robust and strong. i'm not making a political statement. this has nothing to do with 2016 and the election. the growth, the inflation, if anything, the inflation is the worry because the rising dollar and the way things, and the falling oil price could lead to more deflationary causes in the
9:09 pm
economy. now the oust is fine. now talk about europe, and you've got some worries, obviously. france, but the ecb seems to have got that under control for the time being. the big worry, the emerging markets. india, russia, brazil, even little colombia. the commodity countries, even australia. anyone that is selling into china in that way and relies so much on chinese growth and also oil exporting countries, like nigeria, saudi, the uae, that's why, john, this particular, i don't want to use the word crisis, this hiccuhiccup, this indigestion is so difficult to unwind. >> are we at the beginning of something? the middle? or are we coming to the end? >> i still have the shirt on my back for the simple reason i'm wise enough not to answer
9:10 pm
questions like that. >> we'll leave it there then. thanks, richard. china's slowing economy and falling global oil prices are getting much of the blame for this latest selloff. but one economist we spoke to says the plummeting markets reflect a more fundamental economic problem. listen. >> the west fell in love with the wrong growth model. they fell in love with the concept that finance was the engine of growth, and we stopped investing. we stopped investing in infrastructure, in our people, in our education. the result of that is that the west lacks a growth model. and therefore, it has has difficulties. so what did the west do? it started experimenting. and that started derailing what happened in the emerging world. they couldn't, couldn't respond quickly enough. and now you have a massive quest for growth. and when you cannot create growth you steal it from someone else, you depreciate your currency. that is the problem we're having
9:11 pm
right now. >> for all the latest on the markets and financial fallout, please visit our website at cnn.com. we now know the identity of another hero who helped stop a potential massacre on a french train. kn >> french american was shot in the neck. moogalian describes himself as an author, teacher and musician. the other four men being hailed as heroes have been awarded france's highest honor in a red carpet ceremony at the palace. >> we have more on how they stopped the attack. >> reporter: they were the right people in the right place at the right time. three boyhood friends, together on a long-planned european vacation, today honored by france's president for preventing a possible massacre on a high-speed train bound for

paris. it began at 5:13 friday night. the train had pulled out of brussels, your eye youtube ca sa sauny got on. he heard something on the next car. >> i was followed by some breaking glass. >> reporter: spencer stone, an air force medical technician sat next to scar law toes. >> i turned around and saw that he had what looked to be an ak 47 and it was jammed or wasn't working. and alek tinnpped me on the shoulder and said let's go. >> reporter: they saved this life. >> all three of us started punching him while he was in the middle of us, and i was able to
9:13 pm
grab him again and choke him unconscious. >> reporter: he paid the price with box cutter wounds to his neck and head. his thumb nearly cut off. his first act was to stop the bleeding of a passenger who had been shot in the neck, likely saving his life. their friend, anthony sadler quickly joined in, along with a british passenger, chris norman. >> that's our friend. >> reporter: it had the best of possible endings. no one was killed. there were few serious injuries. back home, alek skarlatos, very proud parents. >> we never doubted that alek had this in him. he's a big, buff, strong, brave guy. >> reporter: three brave and humble american heroes. >> i'm still waiting to wake up. this is all just seems like a movie scene or something. >> reporter: martin savage, cnn,
9:14 pm
paris. >> and we do have new details on the suspected gunman, ayoub el khazzani. he was well-known to authorities before the attempted train attack. >> french sources say el intelligence notice which would put him under special surveillance. still, one u.s. official says el khazzani slipped through the cracks and that europe is wide open to attacks. >> i'll tell you that the three it of the european countries had intelligence flags on this individual as a potential terrorist. it's been identified after the fact that he flew from berlin into istanbul and then into syria, presumably to train with isis. and then returned back into europe. this shows how wide open and vulnerable europe is to the foreign fighter people going out and coming back. the fact that they had flags on
9:15 pm
this individual, yet he was able to travel so freely without being impeded or being flagged or stopped or detained, i think, illustrates how dangerous it is in europe right now, the threat of this foreign fighter traveling to isis and syria and coming back. >> el khazzani's lawyer says her client denies trying to launch a terror attack and was trying only to rob the passengers. still to come on "cnn newsroom," she has enjoyed front runner status from the very start, but hillary clinton may soon face another challenger in the presidential primaries. we'll have the latest from washington. the u.s. state of washington reaches two milestones. records no state wants to make. an update on the relentless blazes. that's coming up. stay with us.

9:20 pm
mr. trump has supported building a fence and deport being 11 million undocumented immigrants. >> he called the 14-point plan unrealistic. >> mr. trump's plans are not grounded in conservative principles. it would cost hundreds of billions of dollars. it's not realistic. it won't be implemented and we need border security to get this country back on track. so i'm not going to get into the issues of what he said and what i said. the simple fact is that his proposal is unrealistic. it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars, violate people's civil liberties, create friction with our third-largest trading partner, which is unnecessary, and i think he's wrong about this. >> and on the democratic side, vice president joe biden is sending new signals that he might jump into the race. >> momentum seems to be building for a challenge to hillary clinton. some suggest a run may be
9:21 pm
imminent and the challenges biden would face. >> reporter: joe biden arrived at the white house today with a lot on his mind. his weekly lunch with the president in the oval office taking on new meaning, with speculation swirling about whether he will run. >> everybody is pretty interested to find out as to what decision the vice president is going to make. the president has indicated his view that the decision to add joe biden to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision he's ever made in politics. >> reporter: a source tells cnn the vice president is leaning more toward running for president than against it. the buzz about a possible biden candidacy intensified after he travelled from delaware to washington this weekend for a secret meeting with influential liberal senator elizabeth warren. >> she's a leading voice in our party for progressive issue, and i'm not surprised that joe biden and others will seek her

9:23 pm
his intentions the first week of october. the official message from the vice president's office is that he has not made a decision about running for president, and any speculation to the contrary is false. joe johns, cnn, washington. to the weather now and typhoon goni is battling parts of japan after making landfall a few hours ago. winds reached speeds of 260 kilometers per hour, knocking out power to thousands of homes. goni is the strongest storm to hit the region since 1993. at least eight people have died in northeastern turkey after buildings collapsed in heavy flooding. an adult and child are still missing. the heavy rain continued into monday night. two significant milestones have been reached in the u.s. state of washington's disastrous wildfire season. 2015 is now the worst fire year on record for the state. and the current group of 16 wildfires is also the largest in
9:24 pm
the state's history. close to 255,000 hectares or 630,000 acres have burned. that's an area bigger than all of new york and london combined. more than 200 homes have also been destroyed by the fires. this is the story that does not seem to quit. our meteorologist pedram javaheri joins us. we keep talking about the forecast, it's not looking good. we know they've been in a drought four years. >> there's some improvement in the immediate future. for the first time in a very long time, the coolest weather. 1200 firefighters, 5,000 properties at risk of being burned now with what's happening in washington state. mother nature almost always has the upper hand. the wind pattern, the temperature trend, both of those conditions going to improve and a big-time storm system for this time of year going to cruise in here. so some good news there when you talk about finally seeing the cooler temperatures in the forecast, finally seeing wet weather potential in the forecast.

9:32 pm
4.33%. much better than 23 hours of course. and you see the rest of the markets up. and hang seng at 1.62%. >> this is incredible. big losses continue for china, but the rest of the region, positive territory. they've worked out that china's stock market is basically a giant casino. >> i think there's always been that sneaking suspicion, john. a lot of people have been connecting what's been going on in the stock market to what's going on in the real economy. and i think that's been the fuel to this in many ways, particularly when we got that terrible number on friday. a lot of people assumed that the selloff on the shanghai was a clear point toward any economy in deep, deep trouble, much deeper than everybody had thought. but it's interesting. look at the reaction of those, of the other markets around asia. this is telling you something. this is telling you that perhaps
9:33 pm
that's a little bit overblown. what happened yesterday was overblown, john. and if you read some of the economist's reports, reactive reports today to what happened yesterday, there is a very clear consensus emerging, which is basically, don't panic. take a breath. yes, the markets in china are bad. yes, the economy is slowing, but it's not the end of the world in china. it is not necessarily going to be a hard landing. there are signs there are other economic signs out there which point to an economy actually not doing so badly at all. so basically, yesterday was a one-of event as far as the global markets are concerned, perhaps. the markets in china are disconnected from the economy. we know that. and that's pretty much the point that's being made today. >> yeah, we'll have to work through what has been an overvalued market for ages. is it too early to say if we're now looking at the end or the
9:34 pm
end is in sight of all this recent volatility? >> probably too early to say, but the trend, it seems, the tre trend, the point is facing the right direction. we've been through this before in shanghai, massive, massive slump in stock prices, down, sort of 30% in ten trading sessions or so, which then flattened out, and that didn't ruffle the global economy. i think wiser heads are prevailing, and there's the school of thought that says that the u.s. markets have been overvalued somewhat. still, as you were saying earlier, sort of still reacting to the quantitative easing which has ended. the market's coming more back into line with what the real world is doing and what earnings are doing. >> anguess whd i guess when we the issue with china, people say
9:35 pm
it's not as bad as you think. from the economic planning in beijing, they came to the conclusion that it just has to work itself out? >> it would appear so. there was news on sunday that the pension funds in china were allowed to invest in the market. and patently, that didn't happen, or if it did happen, it was a fail. they didn't really put enough money in yesterday. and people ai've been speaking o say the government has lost a lot of credibility in the attempt to prop up the market. the market is not fundamentally important to the economy. it's a far greater penetration in the u.s. the people who invest have borrowed money. they are in trouble, no doubt. it does send bad signals to see a stock market collapse, but it doesn't necessarily have a big impact on the real economy. you know, economists point to
9:36 pm
things like the services sector which is growing and growing in china. that's actually at a 11-month high. that's what they want to see. this whole transformation of the economy is aimed at boosting the service sector, getting away from exports. so when we see exports down, consumption numbers looking better, that's actually the way policymakers want the economy to go. it's just pretty rocky at the moment. >> and bigger problems with the real estate bubble and infrastructure. the stock market seems way down the list. andrew stevens live in hong kong. after two days of rare, high-level talks, north and south korea have reached an agreement to ease tensions on the peninsula. >> south korea has agreed to stop playing propaganda broadcasts over the border, and an official says the north has apologized or expressed regret over recent land mine incident which wounded two south korean
9:37 pm
soldiers. >> our kathy novak joins us live from seoul with more on this deal. so kathy, how much of a break through is this deal, and how significant is this apology or sense of regret, and south korea's agreement to end its propaganda broadcasts? >> reporter: well, in terms of a break through, rosemary, we were talking about how important it was to have these people in a room talking at all considering where we started. that where we started was pyongyang had set a deadline for 5:00 local time for south korea to stop the broadcasts or it would take military action. and both south korea and the united states were putting contingency plans in place for the possibility that north korea really would attack. so the alternative is we had these talks and they were able to defuse the situation. whether it come to the apology or the regret, it's all in the
9:38 pm
language. south korea is painting it as an apology. the head of national defense, when he was giving the press conference, going through the points that were in that agreement, did refer to it being significant that north korea has apologized. but if you look at the language in the statement itself, it is an expression of regret, essentially, north korea saying it is regretful that two of your soldiers were maimed in this land mine incident, but not necessarily taking responsibility for planting the mines itself that were responsible in south korea and the united nations both blame north korea. they say the evidence is there that north korean soldiers planted the land mines, but the north koreans were able to find some clever language that allows them to defuse the situation while not necessarily taking responsibility or really saying "sorry" for it, rosemary. >> interesting distinction there. and followup talks to help improve ties between the two
9:39 pm
koreas are apparently planned, but there won't be any summit 2009 the leaders of the two countries at this time at least, talk to us about that and what it means exactly. >> reporter: well, as i said before, it is significant to have these high-level talks. as at a very high ministerial level that hasn't been seen since 2007. the question was asked in the press conference i was referring to, whether a summit at the leadership level was discussed and the head of national security said no, that wasn't on the sab the table at this time. i don't know if we expected toe kim jong-un and president park geun-hye in the same room. they will be discussing the possibility of family reunions. that's korean thanksgiving and a time that is very important here in the kreoreas, and it is very

9:44 pm
bases. mr. obama is also making $1 billion in loan guarantees to better encourage new technology. >> now's not the time to insist on massive cuts to the investments in r&d that help drive our economy, including the hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts that many republicans want to take from these successful job-creating clean energy programs. it's thanks in part to these investments that there are places across the country that clean power from the sun is finally cheaper than conventional power from your utility. power often generated by burning coal or gas. >> president obama there. and joining me from las vegas is danielle bersan. thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. >> now you were at the national clean energy summit last night
9:45 pm
and listened to what president obama had to say, and his measures to encourage solar power use. what stood out for you? >> i think what stood out was that we really reached this tipping point where renewable energy isn't just an increasing part of our energy mix but an increasing part of our economy as well, that we need to increase access so that people can take control of their energy choices. >> now we heard there on that sound grab from president obama, he talked about clean power from the sun finally being cheaper than conventional power, generated from burning coal or gas. significant progress. he said, attributed to these clean energy programs. given that, why do republicans want to cut some of these clean energy programs? how do you explain that? >> i think anytime -- this is what the president said, so it's not just my opinion, but anytime that you start to see a shift in
9:46 pm
how, in the status quo anywhere, but in the energy field, in this case. people are going to push back. and some of the people that are pushing back have a vested interest in our dirtier energy systems, our antiquated energy systems. so i think what we are seeing are people who aren't really sure how to react to a new energy source who want to possibly mischaracterize it as being inefficient or unsustainable and who are trying to protect those vested interests. >> so those who can't make money out of solar power will not support it, is that what you're saying? >> well, i think that there are some people who are entrenched in an older energy, dirtier energy system. and so it may not be that they may not make money, but that some of their colleagues or the life that they know it for their energy mix is changing, and that makes things more difficult for them. >> why has it taken america so long to embrace solar energy?
9:47 pm
in australia, they've been harnessing the sun's power since the '70s. using it to heat water on rooftops, utilizing solar panels. what's been the major obstacle for the united states? is it that the interest that you were talking about there? >> in part, you know, we have had, we've had an addiction to oil in our country for a long time. and it's interesting, because in the 1970s we, americans also had their own energy crisis, and that was a period where there was a strong interest in renewable energy and people were moving toward figuring out ways to harness cleaner sources of energy, but as oil and dirty energy became more accessible again, people, you know, shifted gears and started moving away from that renewable energy source. and the demand for renewable energy we saw started to fall. we saw it start to pick up certainly in the last it's years. and what i think the president alluded to today is that we have

reached this watershed moment where it's not going to just shift in the price of oil suddenly goes down as we're seeing today. >> is this a turning point, then, in your view? >> i think so. we, you know, the president mentioned that the solar industry is adding jobs ten times faster than the rest of the economy, that there is more than 20 times, sorry, 20 times more solar energy capacity than there was in 2008. we are seeing a time when people can walk into a chain store and purchase a solar panel and have it installed on their house in a week. and that is not where we were 30, 40 years ago. so i think we're at a point where it's affordable. companies are doing it, not just because it's something that they think is good for the environment, but it's good for their bottom line. and once that has started to happen, which it already has, i think that's a water shed moment for america. >> danielle bausaan, thank you

global market jitters after monday's wild ride on wall street. asian markets are looking for a rebound. will he or won't he? sources say vice president joe biden could make another run for the white house. and step by step, we'll take you inside the tunnel that two convicts used to escape from a prison in upstate new york. like to welcome our viewers in the united states and all around the world, hello, everybody. great to have you with us. i'm john vause. i'm john vause. "cnn newsroom" begins right now.
10:01 pm
-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com and we begin with the markets in asia. investors are keeping a close eye on the numbers after the dramatic selloff on monday. and things are looking a little better today. let's have a look at the latest numbers coming in to cnn across the region. we have japan which was in positive territory for a while but now down by almost .5%. the seoul kospi up by 1.3%. sydney's been in positive territory, so, too, mumbai. the shanghai still down by 4%. monday was a hair-raising ride. the dow ended monday down 588 points or about 3.5%.
10:02 pm
it was the worst for the market since august of 2011, and it kept the biggest three-day point loss in the dow's history. and it was a rough day for stocks across the board on wall street. >> not one stock in the dow was up, even though during the course of the session when several had risen. exxonmobil and the other oil companies, not surprisingly, oil is now under $40 a barrel. this is going to hit their profits hard. exxonmobil is down 4.7%. tech stocks like twitter, which is already closed is down a further 2.7%. these are the stocks where people tend to avoid when times of crisis. procter & gamble, selling
10:03 pm
consumer goods around the world. but procter & gamble, down 3.7%, even though in a recession, in a crisis, we still need to buy soap and toothpaste. it just shows the depth of what we were seeing today when things like p&g are the worst affected. and bank of america. j.p. morgan was also down sharply. but bank of america closed the session down 5%. it was one of the most traded shares on the market. and was absolutely clobbered. put it all together. when you look at the way the dow jones industrials closed, volume was up to 90% higher than you'd normally expect this time of the year. so there was real selling and real market movement in a market that still hasn't quite decided where to close. richard quest, cnn, new york. tech company apple had a big rebound during monday's volatility. before the trading day began in
10:04 pm
the u.s., apple ceo jim cook e-mailed a market commentator on cable tv, and cook reassured him that apple is doing fine in china. they took a small tumble but closed down a relatively small 2.5%. for more on what's driving the markets today, let's go to andrew stevens joining us live. these numbers are kind of mixed all over the place. if you look at what's happening, the selloff seemed to be mostly contained to china. not just what's happening in china but in wall street as well. >> i was watching that collapse of wall street right out of the gates last night. here in hong kong. and i was getting a lot of messages from people in the states, but, you know, quite sophisticated investors saying this is a fantastic buying opportunity. so there is a lot of smart money out there who were very interested in getting in on that collapse.
10:05 pm
so it does give you an understanding that perhaps the whole sort of crisis mode was slightly overdone. and it's important to remember, we have been saying this, john, is that the shanghai stock market and the performance of that market is only very loosely based on what's going on in the real economy. this is a market that went up 160% while the chinese economy was starting to slow down and slow down quite sharply. so it's not a real indicator. now what you see today is those markets around shanghai, hong kong, seoul, up and up reasonably strongly as well. which does suggest that the selling, again, and the fear about china was overdone. the nikkei has lost ground. it was up a little bit earlier in the day, interesting to see where these markets finished. but certainly, there is much more, i guess, rationale, rational thinking going on in these markets around the region at the moment after yesterday. so it's not the end of the world.
10:06 pm
it's not china's sort of guaranteed hard landing which people seem to be concerned about yesterday. it seems to be that cooler heads are prevailing. >> and in some ways, i guess in beijing, is there now a realization that after dropping $2.5 billion trying to prop up stock prices none of that really works and at the end of the day it only affects a small percentage of the population. >> i think that's a fair comment, difficult to know what's going on at that level in the minds of policymakers. but certainly, having thrown in many ways, the kitchen sink at the market earlier in the summer, after it came off its peak around june the 12th and really, really did tank. china announced a whole series of measures, and it looked like a panic reaction. it looked like a, they were making it up as they went along, basically, and it only had a limb limited effect, so they sort of botched that.
10:07 pm
now with this latest leg down, you get the impression in how the authorities are acting in that they're not really reacting, you seem to think that they're much more comfortable letting this market find a more natural base. i don't think they want to see the panic selling, because that sends the wrong headlines across the country, no matter how much they try to hide it, so it will probably be more of a managed, managed sort of movement down. the down remains very much the direction of the shanghai markets at the moment. >> downward approach continues there, mostly because you say it was so overvalued. latest numbers out of shanghai, they're trading down by just about 4%. andrew stevens live for us in hong kong. head to our website, cnn.com for a section on what is actually happening in clinthina and how is playing into global markets. hillary clinton could face a new challenger.
10:08 pm
there are fresh signs that joe biden could be considering jumping into the race. joe johns talks about what's pointing to a joe biden run and the obstacles he could face. >> reporter: joe biden arrived at the white house today with a lot on his mind. his weekly lunch with the president in the oval office taking on new meaning, with speculation swirling about whether he will run. >> everybody is pretty interested to find out as to what decision the vice president is going to make. the president has indicated his view, that the decision to add joe biden to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision he'd ever made in politics. >> reporter: a democratic source tells cnn the vice president is now running more toward running for president than against it. the buzz about a possible biden candidacy intensified after he traveled from delaware to washington this weekend for a secret meeting with influential liberal senator elizabeth warren. >> she's a leading voice in our
10:09 pm
party for progressive values and issues, and i'm snot surprised that joe biden and others would seek her counsel. >> reporter: so far, she has failed to endorse hillary clinton, saying this last week. >> i don't think anybody's anointed. what i want to see is all the presidential candidates lay out where they stand on key issues. >> reporter: biden associates see a possible opening, because clinton has been battling trust issues with voters over her e-mail controversy. >> did you wipe the server? >> like, with a cloth or something? >> reporter: the latest poll shows 50% have an unfavorable opinion of clinton while 44% see biden that way. bernie sanders see clinton's numbers as helping him. >> what the polls seem to indicate is that hillary clinton's support seems to be receding a bit. >> reporter: biden would still face major hurdles if he got into the race late. in the last few weeks he's been talking to advisers and
10:10 pm
supporters about whether a run is realistic. he's been told he needs to make a decision by october 1. one plan would have him announce his intentions the first week of october. the official message from the vice president's office is that he has not made a decision about running for president. and any speculation to the contrary is false. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> so could this be joe biden's moment? does he have the support among democrats to topple hillary clinton who remains a very strong front runner despite all the recent controversy. for more, our senior political analyst joins us. do you think he will get into the race? >> i still think yes, but i think it is more dependent on what happens to hillary clinton than what happens to him. what we're seeing here is mostly about hillary clinton and the anxiety democrats have about this e-mail story that will not end. joe biden is beloved by
10:11 pm
democrats as vice president, but there were reasons he was not looking at running until recently. he ran twice before, was not a very effective candidate either time and would be older than ronald reagan on inauguration day if he ran. so i think this is more about democrats looking for an insurance policy on hillary clinton than it is a ground swell for biden. >> i think maybe the savior of the democratic party should hillary fall over? >> i think the real difficult decision he has to make is there is no doubt that democrats are uneasy about the direction of the clinton campaign, in particular, the inability to put the e-mail controversy behind her, and that generates a certain a willingness to look for someone else. there is still a big gulf between that level of interest and the actual critical mass would you have to have of support logistically and statistically with voters to
10:12 pm
beat hillary clinton. i think there's still enough to look at, whether there's enough interest to make him viable to beat her is another question. what happens to her is what happens to him. >> one of the biggest differences between biden and clinton is that he's got better numbers on being trustworthy and honest. >> i think joe biden's one line of argument against her is that i could be more length abelecta. he doesn't offer a contrast like bernie sanders or o'malley. he comes out of the centrist democratic tradition as hillary and bill clinton. and in fact, biden was the principle author of the crime bill that bill clinton signed and hillary has repudiated under pressure from minority groups in this campaign. so it's not year that clear tha
10:13 pm
viable line of differentiation against her, but to the extent that she is damaged he might be a more viable candidate. >> is this a sophie's choice for president obama? >> i can't imagine that he would get in the middle of this. and, look, i think we're, again, i think if joe biden is smart -- and he is smart -- i don't think he's going to rush to a precipitous decision. i think he's going to wait and see what plays out with hillary clinton and this controversy surrounding her. because if she recovers her footing it would be difficult to see why he would do this. if she continues to dough klein we will cross that gulf from a flirting interest to courting interest. that would make it more worthwhile for him to get in. >> yeah, you never know for joe biden. third time might be the charm. good to speak but. >> thank you. and for now, hillary clinton
10:14 pm
is taking aim at the crowded field of republicans. this ad targets their stand on immigration and the use of the term "anchor babies." >> legal status but not citizenship. >> exactly. >> i use the word anchor baby. >> so you don't have these anchor babies as they're described, coming into the country. >> did you use the term anchor babies, do you regret that term? >> no. >> don't let the circus distract you. most of the other candidates are just trump without the pizzazz or the hair! >> at an appearance on the mexican border, governor bush insisted he wasn't using the term anchor baby in a derogative way. >> my background, my life, the fact that i'm immersed in the immigrant experience, this is ludicrous for the clinton
10:15 pm
campaign and others to suggest that i'm using a derogatory term. what i'm talking about is the specific case of fraud being committed where there's organized efforts, and frankly, it's more related to asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized effort, taking advantage of a noble concept, which is birthright citizenship. i support the 14th amendment. >> and that remark relating more to asians prompted a call from a senator from hawaii for an immediate retraction and an apology. indy car driver justin wilson has died from injuries sustained on sunday. he was struck in the head by the nose cone of another car which crashed. he remained hospitalized in a coma after the accident and then died monday evening. wilson was remembered as an extraordinary driver and a kind person. >> justin's elite ability to drive a race car was matched by his unwavering kindness,
10:16 pm
character and humility, which made him one of the most respected members of the pad okay. as we know, the racing industry is one big family. and our focus is rallying around justin's family to make sure they get the support they need during this difficult time. >> wilson is survived by his wife and two children. just 37 years old. >> a short break here on "cnn newsroom." when we come back, three americans on vacation in europe will come back with a pretty nice souvenir. and the u.s. state of washington reaches two milestones regarding wildfires, records no state wants to achieve. we'll have an update on the relentless blazes when we come back.

10:22 pm
surveillance. it was that notice provoked by his connection to radical mosques in spain which brought to attention his trip from istanbul in may. it's not known if he traveled to syria at that point. it's likely he was linked to a cell of isis fighters in turkey. the cell is likely to have foiled another attack in paris suburbs. the gunman in that attack is awaiting trial after accidently shooting himself in the foot. el khazzani, according to those who wrestled his weapons away, also does not appear to have been highly trained after his assault weapon apparently jammed. >> yes, he clearly had no firearms training whatsoever. and yes, if he knew what he was doing or even just got lucky and did the right thing, he would have been able to operate through all eight of those magazines, and we would have all been in trouble and probably wouldn't be here today. >> reporter: el khazzani, who is still undergoing questioning at
10:23 pm
this french intelligence headquarters outside paris, was not, according to his lawyer, a terrorist at all. she says he was just trying to pull off an armed robbery of the train with weapons he found in a brussels park. el khazzani's father said his son never talked politics but just liked football and fishing, although he admitted that the 25-year-old had been arrested on drug-related charges. given el khazzani's track record and the amount of weaponry he allegedly brought aboard the train, french authorities are not buying the lawyer or father's picture of the motives. because the jurisdiction remains under the top terrorism prosecutor. he now joins a list of accused terrorists who raised suspicions or were known to intelligence authorities before they went into the action. the question that is being asked is exactly what's stopping security officials from heading offer the terrorists before they

[ bell ringing ] >> all right, the markets are open. you see the big board up there. in just a few moments we will see how the selloff, looks like it's accelerating, the dow down. it was off more than 950 points. just a moment ago. >> when you see a 5% move in a market in the stock market in a single day, it's very, very rare
10:33 pm
to see this. this is a lot of selling coming from all around the world. now we're down 6%, more than 1,000 points here. >> at the moment, this market having been down between 600 and 800. it's looking for its direction. >> it's just too early to tell how low we're going to go at this point. >> the dow 667 points. half an hour into the trading session. >> i want to pull up the big board again. the dow off 300 points. nowhere near the 1,000 point drop we saw at the open. >> the dow now down 340-some points. that looks sunny and rosie after an epic 1,000 point plunge. >> the true question is where we close today. >> we're now 200 at 141. good god, might we erase the disaster of today? >> you can now see down 668,
10:34 pm
after really rebounding. [ bell ringing ] >> we're going to settle in right now at 584 points down at 4:00. that's on top of the 500-point loss that we saw earlier this week. >> at the end of trading on monday, the 24th of august. look at the numbers. the madness is over. >> analysts are urging investors to stay calm and to remember that corrections are healthy for the market. but the cboe's volatility index sometimes called the vix or fear index jumped. the best strategy is to make sure your investments are diverse. >> it's certainly true over the last four trading day the we've seen volume expand, prices coming quite, quite sharply and the vix go up 200%. that set off alarm bells for every investor. that said, it's important to remain diversified. to make sure you have exposure
10:35 pm
to the vix. there is justification for exposure. additionally, think defensively. don't try to catch the falling knife. this market is going to be intensely volatile for the next few weeks, possibly months. with that in mind, there's going to be a lot of money shaken out of very, very weak hands. you want to have exposure to the vi vix, utilities. focus on the domestic economy. let's head to the korean peninsula where the north and south have reached an agreement. after days of marathon talks, the south has stopped its propaganda over the border and turned up the k-pop. both sides have now shown they can negotiate their way out of a crisis. is this seen as a turning point in north-south relations?

>> reporter: we may have to wait and see, i think the hope that they were able to get together at all at this very high level and have these discussions and get to the point of what was really at stake here, which was defusing these tensions. we know at this time of year when the u.s. and south korea holds drills it's a time of tension, but this time it seems a little different with this real threat from pyongyang that had been setting a deadline for 5:00 local time to turn off the k-pop or it would strike south korea. and south korea and the united states were putting in real preparations for that possible. and this time around it wasn't just the joint military drills, it was the land mines and the speakers, and it led to this level. so they were able to get past that. in terms of a turning point and future relations going forward, there are also talks outside of the land mines and the
10:37 pm
propaganda speakers that we've been discussing. there's also in this agreement, plans next month for the red cross to be involved in further discussions that would set up possible family reunions at the end of september, when the koreas mark their thanksgiving. it's a very significant time of year. and i think if they're able to get that done, if we're able to see some family reunions, then that would be seen as a very positive sign and perhaps the positive that came out of what was a very difficult situation, john. >> yeah, if you look at the history between these two sides. in 60 years, north korea has never apologized for anything. and that includes starting the war in 1950. so this expression of regret by the north, it seems a pretty big win for the south koreans. >> reporter: it may, it depends on what you consider an apology, i think is the question being asked today, especially in the south korean media here, john. north korea did not say sorry. it expressed regret.
10:38 pm
there was sort of this feeling that it is regretful that your soldiers were injured by this land mine, but not an admission that north korea actually planted the land mines that maimed these two south korean soldiers, both south korea and the united nations say there was enough evidence to show that it was by north korea. but as you say, north korea is not one to apologize. so it was interesting to see how they would come out of this with any kind of agreement that would satisfy both sides. and it seems that this expression of regret is being seen by the south korean government as enough of an apology and we heard from the head of the national security and his press conference that he said the word apology. he said it is significant that north korea apologized. so that's how it's being interpreted there. >> sorry is always the hardest word. kathy, thank you for being with us. a short break on "cnn newsroom." when we come back, two killers

one of our top stories this hour is that attack in france. we take a plane and go through a number of security check points, but you can walk onto almost any train without so much as a second look. here's phil black. >> reporter: the 2004 terrorist bombings in madrid brutally exposed the vulnerability of the trains. the blast killed 191 people. but today in europe there's still only one rail service that enforces anything like airport-style security. when you ride the euro star you and your luggage pass through screening. >> eurostar is a closed network.
10:43 pm
ever since it opened 21 years ago, connecting london with paris and brussels, it's been considered that the channel tunnel is a target. and therefore, you've always had airport-style security. and because there's so few stations involved in the network, that's been relatively easy to maintain. >> reporter: but the eurostar is a tiny part of the rail network. long sections of high-speed rail weave through a complex web of local city and rail lines. it moves hundreds of millions of people per year with little to no passenger screening. >> it is the sorts of numbers which simply don't happen in air travel, and therefore, the air travel solutions do not apply to the trains. >> reporter: security experts say european countries must strike a difficult balance between risk management and convenience. >> on the one hand, you do have a terrorist threat that occasionally does a bit of target public transport. but on the other hand you have
10:44 pm
the economic benefits of having a mobile train system across the continent that people can use very easily. >> reporter: in the short term, experts believe the answer lies in more covert surveillance and more visible armed security. >> so have be more people at major train stations with guns, for example, will help not only engender sort of public sense of security but maybe potentially deter some people from launching attacking. >> reporter: there is no failsafe option. so as on trains as almost every area of mod irp european life, people are now considering what money, freedoms that they are willing to sacrifice to battle terrorism. phil black, cnn, london. u.s. president obama is in las vegas outlining his plans for an energy-efficient future. mr. obama unveil add number of executive actions to promote cleaner energy, especially
10:45 pm
solar. he said they provide solar energy to more than 40 military bases and wants to double the energy they produce. >> now is not the time to insist on massive cuts to investments in r&d that help drive our economy -- including the hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts that many republicans want to take from these job-successionfjob-suc job-successful programs. there are places across the country that power from the sun is cheaper than power from your conventional utility. power generated by burning coal or gas. >> mr. obama is also making $1 billion in loan guarantees available to encourage companies to develop new energy technology. two convicted killers spent three weeks on the run in new york state before one was killed and the other captured. david sweat and richard matt used power tools to cut through steel walls and pipes before
10:46 pm
emerging outside their maximum security prison. now we're getting a look at what the escape looked like from the convicts' point of view. here's randy kaye. >> we need a flashlight so we can get decent camera footage. >> reporter: two investigators armed with supplies and two gopro cameras showing us how inmates david sweat and richard matt shimmied and snaked their way to freedom. the video, given to us by an official source is about 20 minutes long. as long as it takes for these investigators to wind their way through the belly of clinton correctional facility, just like the escapees did back in june. >> at the end of d block. >> reporter: we're not showing the investigators' vasfaces, bu their point of view is eye opening. they begin at the very spot where sweat and matt cut holes in their cells. before jumping down into an
10:47 pm
elaborate maze of pipes and tunnel system. >> approaching the first significantly tight squeeze, the end of b block leading into the c-block area. >> reporter: about halfway through the tape -- >> almost nine, almost ten minutes in. >> reporter: our first glimpse of the hole that takes them from one prison building to the next. investigators squeeze themselves through it to reach the other side. they push forward, retracing the prisoners' steps, and just like them, dealing with unbearable heat. >> getting warm. >> reporter: at 14 minutes, they're underneath the asphalt yard between the buildings. >> we've entered into the pipe-chased halls. adjacent to b block and c block. >> reporter: it's a maze that even these investigators have trouble mastering.
10:48 pm
there's piping hot steam. at times it's hard to breathe. >> basically southbound from that tunnel. >> reporter: about 17 minutes in, they reach the now legendary steampipe used by the escapees. this is where it gets tricky. sweat had told investigators he spent nearly a month cutting holes in this steampipe, all part of his secret nightly trips spent mapping out their elaborate escape. >> we're going to get in this pipe. it's going to lead to the exit. and attempting to extricate myself from the steampipe, which is not easy. >> reporter: and then, the homestretch. passing one chained up manhole cover and making their way to the next one, the very same manhole richard matt and david sweat emerged from, kicking off a three-week man hunt.

10:50 pm
better than warfarin, ...i will. eliquis. eliquis... reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had less major bleeding than warfarin... eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept that i'm not as fast, but i'm still going for my personal best... and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke... plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor... if eliquis is right for you.

10:55 pm
typewriter she used to type out "and then there were none", and "death on the nile". there were over 100 plays, stori stories. he is the keeper of the files. >> i'm a glorified brand manager. >> reporter: there are a lot of books. have you read them all? >> oh, yes. >> reporter: you must be one of the few. >> oh, no, i think you'd be surprised how many people have read all the books. >> reporter: but one story remains taboo, a mysterious, sensational and traumatic disappearance from home in 1926. her husband archie cristey had fallen in love with another woman. >> we don't talk about the disappearance. a lot of people ask me about it, but the family never did, and i don't. so can we move on to the next
10:56 pm
subject? >> reporter: absolutely. in a way this amounts to a deeply affectionate tribute from a grandson to his grandmother. it's a celebration of agatha before he came along. they both had birthdays in september. >> she gave me the rights to the mousetrap for my 9th birthday. i don't think she realized how generous she was being. >> reporter: the words chariots and horses, namely the design on a favorite summer dress as she left by boat with archie on a world tour in 1922. not only could agatha christie write, but she had style. >> and thanks, nick glass, for that report.

after another global selloff some asian markets are improving today but it looks like the volatility is coming back.
11:01 pm
north and south korea reach an agreement. and tragedy on the racetrack. british indycar driver justin wilson has died after being injured in a crash. >> i'm rosemary church. welcome to you viewers in the united states and around the world. >> i'm errol barnett. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom." so here's the situation as we see it. it's not exactly a rebound but it's not a rout either. some markets in asia are moving slightly higher a day after major indices plummeted but we are seeing volatility today. >> look at the numbers. a short time ago, the shanghai composite was down 4%. it is now more than 6% down. look what happened in japan, the nikkei has lost nearly 4%. it wasn't long ago that we were looking at the numbers and it
11:02 pm
wasn't 1% down. we need to find out what has happened to suddenly see this volatility at this point in the day. >> in tokyo and hong kong there were gains a few hours ago. monday's asian slump sent shock waves around the world. in london, frankfurt and zurich stocks closed down. they will open in an hour. on wall street, stocks fell more than 1,000 points minutes after the opening bell and came back only to end down around 600 points. let's get to our asia-pacific editor, andrew stevens, the markets in seoul and sydney gained ground. not so much in china. what do you attribute the stabilization we were seeing? >> reporter: a lot of people woke up having seen such a big
11:03 pm
selloff globally overnight and thought that this would be a time to get back into the market, a little bit of bargain hunting, perhaps. we're getting a lot of research reports coming out here in asia saying that the reaction to these chinese factory numbers which came out on friday which seem to be the genesis of the global selloff, that reaction had been overdone, the chinese economy is not about to fall off a cliff and it's still unlikely it's going to have a hard landings. on the back of that, people stepped back in the markets gingerly by the look at this, errol. you can see the nikkei, particularly, that's a big, big move. the second day of really big move first the nikkei which is not known for its volatility. hong kong is coming back from its earlier lows. hong kong and tokyo were strongly higher in the early
11:04 pm
trade. the name of the game is volatility and it looks like it will be with us for a long time. expect a lot of seesawing going on over the next perhaps few days, errol. >> and this volatility, it seems all began in china. the entire market plunge situation has really weakened confidence in china's ability to manage an economic crisis like this. do you think that's the long-term damage done this week, no matter what china does in the next few days or so? >> reporter: personally, i don't. i don't think the chinese are going to let their economy get out of control on the downside. i think they have too many tools at their disposal to let that happen. they haven't really let -- gone for it yet. so, they can. and remember, it's important
11:05 pm
that -- to remember that the chinese are trying to manipulate the economy away from traditional export investment model to a more consumer-based model and there is going to be pain in that and we are seeing the pain. there are a couple of bright spots and economists point to the bright spots in the chinese economy. they're saying it's certainly not a hard-landing scenario for china but it's it doesn't feel like that for investors in china. take a listen to what one chinese investor had to say. >> translator: the institution, security companies, brokers, once they make a profit, they pull out leaving the investors behind crying and wailing. they are cursing the communist party. we don't feel good about it. >> reporter: that's a really interesting line. cursing the communist party. this is one thing -- this is really what the leadership fears
11:06 pm
above all else is, you know, a loss of credibility amongst the chinese population. it has set itself up to be the leader in times of crisis that the chinese people can always turn to for it to make the right decisions and keep the country going strongly. having this massive selloff on the stock exchange despite earlier efforts by the government to rein it in which have been as we now know a failure damages the credibility of beijing and that is one thing they really don't want to be dealing with, the chinese losing faith in the institutions in the communist party itself. >> certainly true for that man and perhaps many others. a roller coaster ride, andrew stevens we'll check in with you again next hour from hong kong. let's cross over to india for a look at the markets in
11:07 pm
mumbai. india's financial markets saw their biggest fall since 2009 on monday. how are things looking now? >> reporter: they were looking a lot better at the start of the trading day, rosemary. the market opened higher this morning. the main index was up 1/2% this morning but things have changed over the last half an hour or so. and now we are seeing the main markets the bombay stock exchange and sensex down 1.3%. so we are seeing losses again and this is pretty much mirroring what is happening across the rest of asia. again much of the other markets we saw early gains but we they have come off in the last half hour or. so we are keeping a close eye on the currency market as well. the rupee has hit a new low.
11:08 pm
but it's pretty much flat compared to what it was yesterday. but it is close to a two-year low. the rupee holding flat but the markets down roughly more than 1% at the moment. >> so what are financial analysts in india saying about what happened monday and how things are likely to look going forward across india? >> reporter: what they are saying is, they're calling it a temporary tantrum by the indian markets and they are saying that india was not spared the mayhem. there is no doubt about that. we had the biggest single day drop. the sensex was down 6% yesterday but india is in a better position to deal with this crisis than a lot of other major economies are. and that's simply because domestically, the fundamentals in india are quite strong. there is growth. india is still showing robust
11:09 pm
growth. inflation has been cooling over the last couple of months. india has large foreign exchanges. there are commodities in the falling oil prices. that is helping india a lot. all those factors are making people here think is it a temporary tantrum. it is falling in sympathy with other global markets but the fundamentals look strong. but they are hoping there won be serious damage to the indian economy but it's if this is a start of a global recession then all bets are off. >> yeah, a temporary tantrum. let's hope it's more than. many thanks to you. let's get you more information now on what was a wild day on wall street. there were cheers as the closing bell rang on monday. >> but none of the stocks in the dow jones industrial average had
11:10 pm
anything to cheer about. richard quest goes beyond the numbers to show us why. >> not one stock in the dow was up. even though during the course of the session there were moments when several did rise. look at the stocks that showed the biggest losses, exxonmobil. oil is now under $40 a barrel. this is going to hit their profits hard. exxonmobil is down 4.7%. tech stocks like twitter which is already close to its ipo price is down 2.7%. these are the stocks that people avoid in times of crisis. proctor and gamble massive consumer-facing company selling consumer goods around the world. but proctor and gamble down 3.7% even though in a crisis we still
11:11 pm
need soap and tooth paste. it shows the depth of what we were seeing today when folks like p & g are the worst ask affected. bank of america was one of the most traded shares on the market and was down 5%. put it all together. when you look at the way the dow jones industrials closed, volume was up to 90% higher than you expect at this time of the year. there was real selling and real market movements in a market that still hasn't quite decided where to close. richard quest, cnn, new york. now of course we'll have much more on the market story throughout the day. but you can also follow the markets on cnnmoney.com. and read about how this compares to dives we've seen in the past. let's turn now to france where four men helped dearm a
11:12 pm
gunman on a paris-bound train have received an honor. french president francois hollande award lead the americans and a briton the legion of honor. >> reporter: the high-speed french train leaves amsterdam at 3:15 in the afternoon for a three-hour trip to paris. on board are three american friends enjoying a european vacation together. two hours later the train makes a stop in brussels where ayoub el khazzani gets on board. minutes later a shirtless el khazzani emerges from a bathroom in first class. he makes his way back to car 12 where he is confronted by mark
11:13 pm
mo moogalian. it's 5:50 p.m. >> the gunshot was probably the first noise i heard and then that was followed by breaking glass. so the gunshot was one of the -- the first thing that came to our attention. i didn't know it was a gunshot at the time. it was the first thing i heard. it was behind me. i didn't know where he was aiming it. >> reporter: alek skarlatos is the first to react, shouting, get him. his buddy, spencer stone, a martial arts enthusiast leads the charge. >> ran down, tackled him. alek grabbed the gun and i put him in a choke hold. he kept pulling more weapons,
11:14 pm
pulled out a handgun, took out a box cutter and started jabbing at me with that. we let go, all three of us started punching him when he was in the middle of us. i was able to grab him again and choke him unconscious while alex was hitting in the head with the pistol or rival. >> reporter: stone is slashed by a box cutter nearly losing his thumb and suffering injuries to his neck and head. >> he had a lot of ammo. his intention were pretty clear. >> reporter: that's when the third american, anthony sadler helps tie the suspect up aided by chris norman. stone starts to render first aid to moogalian. sadler uses his phone to capture the chaotic moments. then sadler goes car to car spreading the news to terrified
11:15 pm
passengers the danger is over. ten minutes later the train we have routed to arras, 115 miles north of paris. the gunman is taken into police custody. and these pictures show what appears to be more magazines. the injuries and wounded were taken to area hospitals. the quick-thinking americans aided by others prevent what could have been a massacre on a train moving at close to 200 miles an hour. martin savidge, cnn, paris. >> incredible. >> it is an amazing story. and there will be a parade back home for some of those americans. >> welcoming home the heroes. other stories now, the world of motor sports is mourning the loss of indycar driver justin wilson after head injuries
11:16 pm
sustained during a car. >> he was struck in the head by the nose cone by another car that crashed. wilson was remembered by one of his fellow drivers. >> i think he exemplified, you know, what the reason that we all love doing this. he fought so hard to get back. and as challenging as today is and yesterday was, you know, he's doing what he loved to do and what we all love to do. and why we'll all be back competing in his honor in the near future. >> wilson is survived by his wife and two young daughters. he was 37 years old. still to come on "cnn newsroom," north and south korea have reached a deal to ease hostilities. details on the agreement after this short break. stay with us. i have type 2 diabetes.

11:19 pm

11:21 pm
ease tensions on the peninsula. >> south korea has stopped its propaganda broadcasts over the border and north korea expressed regret over recent landmine blasts that wounded two south korean soldiers. kathy novak joins us now with more. you can almost hear this global sigh of relief but what are we learning about what it took to get this far. for north korea to even admit regret is significant. how did we get here? >> reporter: they did go on for days. i think they were talking for about 43 or 44 hours. and what we are hearing is the statement that we got from the negotiator on the south korean side. and the sticking points as we know throughout have been these two things. on one hand, north korea was
11:22 pm
demanding that south korea stop broadcasting through these loud speakers on the border. south korea was demanding an apology for landmine explosions. and we heard president park geun-hye saying that she was demanding this apology. one would imagine that what was going on was a way to satisfy both sides so they could go home and say we got what we wanted and no one had to lose face and they had to find a delicate way to do that. they came to the agreement to be able to express regret. it is unusual to hear this expression of regret from north korea and it seems to underscore how angry north korea was about these propaganda speakers that it saw as extremely insulting to the leader and regime. but on the other hand they didn't want to back down in terms of giving an apology. in terms of being able to
11:23 pm
express regret. it can say it is regretful that the landmines happen it without taking responsibility for it. >> we had escalating tensions, talks and an agreement. and apparently the sides will talk again but the possibility of reuniting korean families is also on the table and also incredibly significant. >> reporter: absolutely. that is one of the things in the speculations as we waited for these men to emerge from this meeting. the speculation was there must be other things they are talking about. we know these propaganda speakers and the apology over the landmines were the red lines for both sides but there are other things that have plagued the relationship between north and south korea for many, many years. one of the things that was
11:24 pm

speculation swirling about whether he will run. >> everybody is pretty interested to find out what decision the vice president is going to make. the president has indicated his view that the decision to add joe bide on the the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision he had ever made. >> reporter: a democratic source telling cnn the vice president is now leaning more toward running for president than against it. the buzz about a possible biden candidacy intensified after he traveled from delaware to washington this weekend for a secret meeting with elizabeth warren. >> i'm not surprised that joe biden and others will seek her counsel. >> reporter: so far the massachusetts senator has refused to endorse hillary clinton saying this last week. >> i don't think anyone has been anointed. i want to see all of the presidential candidates lay out where they stand on key issues. >> reporter: biden associates

welcome back to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. i'm errol barnett. >> i'm rosemary church. we want to take a look at the markets in the asia-pacific region. we saw some positive movement but a lot of volatility. let's look at the shanghai
11:31 pm
composite in china it's nearly a 7% loss. as it opened it was a 4% loss and the other market we are keeping a close eye on is tokyo's nikkei. that has lost nearly 4%. that was in positive territory not long ago. as was hong kong. that has lost nearly a percent there. we are seeing all this volatility now. >> and u.s. financial markets look to recover today from their biggest single day drop since twaechb. the dow closed down 588 points on monday. >> the market plunged more than 1,000 points within minutes of the opening bell and here's a look at how the day played out. >> reporter: we begin with breaking news on wall street. dow futures down some 600 points ahead of the opening bell. the markets are open. you see the big board up there. in just a few moments we'll see
11:32 pm
how the selloff. the dow down 100 points. the dow jones industrial average off 800 points and it was off 950 points a moment ago. >> when you see a 5% move in a stock market in a single day it's very rare to see this. it's a lot of selling coming from all around the world. we are down 6% more than 1,000 points here. >> at the moment this market down between 600 and 800 looking for a direction. >> it's too early to tell how much lower we're going to go. >> down 667 points. >> it's important to put this in perspective. the dow off 300 points nowhere near the 1,000 points from the open. >> the dow down 340 points. that looks sunny and rosie after a 1,000 point plunge. >> there is a sense that things have stabilized.
11:33 pm
but the question is where we close today. >> we are below 200 at 141. might we erase the disaster of today. >> a half hour left in the trading day. the dow sinking once again. now down 668 after it really rebounded. >> we're going to settle in at 584 points down at 4:00. that's on top of the 500 point loss earlier this week. >> at the end of trading on monday, the 24th of august. look at the numbers. the madness is over. you want to take a breath after. that as our correspondents and experts have told us there, are many reasons the global markets took a dip but it didn't take long for the republican presidential candidates to blame the barack obama administration for the market slide. >> i've been telling everybody for a long time china has been
11:34 pm
taking our jobs and our money. you have to know what you're doing. we have nobody that has a clue. >> donald there. republican candidate scott walker is urging president obama to cancel a planned state visit from chinese president xi jinping. mr. xi is scheduled to travel to the u.s. next month. walker says that the u.s. has to hit back at alleged cyberattacks by beijing. >> i called on the president of the united states to cancel the state visit he is providing for the head of china, xi jinping. why? because to me not just because of what they have done to devalue their currency but because of what they're not doing when it comes to upholding those values. why would we give that state visit to a country that doesn't share our values and allegiances. i call on others to ask the president of the united states to say we're not going to have
11:35 pm
that state visit. >> walker says the u.s. needs to do more to change china's human rights record which he says includes the persecution of 100 million christians. fellow candidate jeb bush is trying to dig out of a controversy over his use of the term "anchor babies". >> it refers to children been in the u.s. to illegal immigrants. bush insists he is not using the term in a derogatory way. >> my background and my life, i'm immersed in the immigrant experience. this is ludicrous to suggest that i'm using a derogatory term. what i'm talking about is the specific case of fraud being commit where had there are organized efforts and it's more related to asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized efforts, taking advantage of a noble concept which is
11:36 pm
birthright citizenship. i support the 14th amendment. >> that clarification prompted a senator from hawaii to call for an immediate retraction and apology to the asian community. >> it's a key point of debate between dump dump and jeb bush. >> paw low sandoval has more on how they are trying to win support. >> you have to have a deeper strategy than just building a fence. >> reporter: it didn't take jeb bush to go on the offense. the former florida governor went for donald trump's immigration policy. >> mr. trump's plans are not grounded in conservative principles. it would cost hundreds of billions of dollars. >> reporter: last month trump toured the dividing line of the
11:37 pm
u.s. and mexico. >> we have a tremendous danger on the border. >> reporter: trump is needling his fellow gop candidate. >> on the border it's rough, tough, stuff. this is not love. this is other things going on. i think he will be be able to figure that out, maybe. >> reporter: the similarities end there. not on bush's agenda, a look at the border. bush has visited the border before and is familiar with the issues dominating the immigration debate. the stop in texas coming amid tensions with bush tweeting his massive inconsistencies aside, donald trump's plan is not conservative or reflect our nation's values. trump responded at his big alabama rally. >> when jeb bush wants to let people come in. >> reporter: for all the back and forth the two have substantial differences on key issues such as birthright
11:38 pm
citizenship. >> i think that people born in this country ought to be american citizens. >> you don't walk over the border for one day and we have another american citizen. it doesn't work that way. >> reporter: or building a wall. >> i talked to the southwest governors no one thinks we should be building a fence as the solution to security. >> i will build a great, great wall on the southern border and i will have mexico pay for that wall. >> reporter: and how to deal with the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the united states. >> the simple fact is there is no plan to deport 11 million people. >> reporter: they came over illegally. some are wonderful people and they've been here for a while. they've got to go out. >> reporter: over the weekend, trump was short on specifics hon how he would execute that plan. >> you declare you're going to do it but don't say how. >> it's called management and we can expedite the good ones to
11:39 pm
come back in. >> reporter: and bush's view on immigration could get mixed reaction from fellow republicans. they could be too moderate for the gop base. bush has not backed away of the idea to grant citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people already in the country. the man occupying the white house, president obama makes his pitch for cleaner energy. >> for decades we have been told it doesn't make economic sense to switch to renewable energy. today that's not true. >> what will solar power have in his plan for a greener future? we're back in a moment. i love the jetta. but what about a deal? terry, stop! it's quite alright... you know what? we want to make a deal with you. we're twins, so could you give us two for the price of one? come on, give us a deal. look at how old i am. do you come here often?

11:42 pm
all right. let's take a look at the asia-pacific markets that hour. sydney and tokyo have finished trading for the day. >> looking at the shanghai
11:43 pm
composite, it's looking as bad as yesterday when it closed close to 8% down. 7.66% down at this hour. the hang seng, which was in positive territory not long ago pulling back almost a full percentage point. u.s. president barack obama is in las vegas outlining his plans for an energy efficient future. mr. obama unveiled executive actions to unveil cleaner ene y energy, especially solar. >> mr. obama is making a billion dollars in loan guarantees available to encourage new technology. >> now is not the time to insist on massive cuts to the investments in r & d that help
11:44 pm
drive our economy including the hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts that republicans want to take from the successful job-creating clean energy programs. it's thanks in part to these investments that there are places across the country where clean power from the sun is cheaper than conventional power from your utility, power generated by burning coal or gas. >> reporter: president obama there and joining me from las vegas is the managing director of the energy team at the center for american progress, co sponsors of the summit. thank you for being with us. you were at the national clean energy summit and listened to what mr. obama had to say. and what stood out for you? >> i think what stood out was that we really reached this tipping point where renewable energy is not just an increasing part of the energy mix but an
11:45 pm
increasing part of the economy as well and we need to increase access to that renewable energy. >> now we heard there, on that sound grab from president obama, he talked about clean power from the sun finally being cheaper than conventional power generated from burning coal or gas. significant progress, he said, attributed to these clean energy programs. given that, why do republicans want to cut some of these clean energy programs? how do you explain that? >> i think any time -- this is what the president said, so it's not just my opinion. but any time you start to see a shift in how -- in the status quo anywhere but in the energy field in this case, people are going to push back. and some of the people that are pushing back have a vested interest in our dirtier and
11:46 pm
antiquated energy systems. i think that we're seeing is that people who aren't sure how to react to a new energy source and want to characterize it as being inefficient or unsustainable and trying to protect vested interests. >> those who can't make money out of solar power will not support it. is that what you're saying? >> i think there are some people who are entrenched in an older energy, dirtier energy system. and so, it may not be the -- they may not make money but some of their colleagues are the life they know for their energy mix is changing and that makes things more difficult for them. >> why has it taken america so long to embrace solar energy? in australia they have been harnessing the sun's power for centuries and utilizing solar panels. what is the major obstacle for the united states? is it that interest that you were talking about there?
11:47 pm
>> i think in part. we have had an addiction to oil in our country for a long time. and it's interesting because in the 1970s, americans had their own energy crisis and that was a period where there was a strong interest in renewable energy and people were moving toward figuring out ways to harness cleaner sources of energy. but as oil and dirty energy became more accessible again people shifted gears and started moving away from that renewable energy source and the demand started to fall. we've seen it start to pick up, obviously, certainly in the last eight years. and what the president alluded to is that we reached this watershed moment is that it's not going to shift as the price of oil suddenly goes down as we are seeing today. it is such an important issue. many people wondering if this is
11:48 pm
related to climate change. the u.s. state of washington is experiencing its worst fire year on record. more than 250,000 hectares, an area bigger than london and new york combines have burned in the region. pedram javaheri joins us with what could be the best news in a long time. >> rainfall. just looked into this in the last few minutes. the last time we had multiple days, upwards of four days in a row of rainfall in seattle in particular, back between march 13th to march 16th. we have a storm system entering the picture. the center of circulation right here showing the moisture in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere. cooler weather is pushing in as well. we are getting to a pattern we have been looking forward to. above normal possibility for rainfall in the northwestern corner of the u.s. and the temperature trend warms

-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com financial markets are opening this hour in europe following another day of heavy losses in china. plus a british indycar driver has died following a crash on a u.s. racetrack. three americans and an englishman are given france's highest honor for helping stop a potential massacre.
12:01 am
>> hello and welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and those tuned in around the world. thanks for joining us. i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom." stocks in the asian-pacific region struggled to rebound one day after the markets plummeted there. we are looking at the numbers. china's shanghai down more than 8%. it's starting to look a little like yesterday and it had been at 4% at one point there. 4% loss and we'd seen positive territory in the other markets but not the case now. >> you see tokyo's nikkei is down, the asx in australia up at the end of its trading hour. hong kong has an hour to go but we saw volatility for the most part it's red there in asia.
12:02 am
we won't know for a while how other world markets will react. yesterday u.s. markets had a wild response, plunging 1,000 points at the opening rebounding and falling down more than 600 points. >> european markets are just beginning their trading day. isa soares joins us from london with that. >> and andrew stevens is watching the asian markets. there was a lot of volatility today, some evidence of gains but all of that is erased at the close. >> it's important to look at the markets around china, particularly hong kong and to a lesser degree, australia, errol, hong kong is down but not by much. it suffered a big 5% fall yesterday but it hasn't followed through today. and it's important to point out the shanghai market is really a market disconnected to just about everything else at the
12:03 am
moment. it is not following global trends. it is not really even following the china economy. it is small investors who are very, very keen to get out as soon as they possibly can and they have been trying to get out since mid-june of this year. this selloff is a continuation of that. this is another 8% fall on shanghai today. that hurts local investors. but local investors are the main part of the investment community in shanghai. there aren't that big an influence around china itself. that's where we are at the moment. definitely a lot of volatility. the nikkei is down another 4%. that may be a reflection on the fact there are concerns still about, sort of the strength of the global economy and what it means for an exporting country like japan. >> today looking a lot like yesterday, andrew stevens live
12:04 am
in hong kong giving us the asian market reaction there. thanks. let's head to isa soares in london. the european markets just opening now. it might be too early to start to see a trend but they finished way down yesterday. >> reporter: they did, indeed. they fell quite substantially, and i think the stocks took quite a tumble once we knew how much dow futures were looking down 600 points. we saw going from 2% to 4 or 5%. but look at the markets really turning around. obviously still on edge following those sharp and wild and brutal swings we saw in asia as well as in the u.s. but you know, coming up pretty much strong this morning. the ftse up 2%. and look at the xetra dax up almost 2%.
12:05 am
yesterday it had falling substantially more than 4%. the xetra dax lost 20% of -- since the beginning of the year of its high. it really goes to show how closely linked they are with asia. and the reason the xetra dax fell so much is because germany is europe's engine of growth and has the biggest exposure to china. it's the third biggest trading partner with china. concerns there over what exports would mean for german exports and look at xetra dax it has entered bear territory down more than 20% yesterday since its highs. it really paints a picture. but today in the last 45 minutes we got good data out of germany. gdp grew 0.4% in the second quarter. the exports are still doing fine
12:06 am
but paints a bleak picture when you look at the third quarter. we're talking about what companies are -- have very strong exposure to china. we're talking about auto makers and dimeler and bmw are down 15% in august. so many concerns here regarding what this and what china may mean, the growth in china may mean for exporters here in europe. european traders starting the day positive. let's see if they can hold on to those gains. it's a day where investors are going to be on edge, closely monitoring those numbers out of china. waiting and hoping with a baited breath to see what china does in the next coming days. >> good to see the markets in positive territory. we did see that in asia in the beginning. we will watch it cautiously to see what happens with those markets. isa soares in london. andrew stevens in hong kong.
12:07 am
thanks to you both. the world of motor sports mourns the loss of justin wills whon died from severe head injuries suffered at the pocono raceway in the u.s. on sunday. he was struck in the head by nose cone of another car that crashed. he died monday even. wilson was remembered by one of his fellow drivers. >> i think he exemplified, you know, what the reason that we all love doing this, you know, he fought so hard to get back and as challenging as today is and yesterday was, you know, he's doing what he loved to do and what we all love to do. and why we'll all be back competing in his honor in the near future. >> the ceo of the parent company for indycar in indianapolis motor speedway said this is a
12:08 am
monumentally sad day for indycar and the motor sports community as a whole. justin's elite ability to drive a race car was matched by his unwavering kindness, character and humility. this time yesterday we watched live as four men hailed as heroes were awarded france's highest honor. the three americans and one briton are credited with stopping a potential massacre on a paris-bound train on friday. >> francois hollande presented the men with the legion of honor on monday. chris norman helped sub due the gunman and was emotional meeting with france's leader. >> you sound emotional today. how do you feel in your heart? >> i feel happy to be alive. frankly that was the real thing and i'm happy that nobody got hurt. >> we didn't have this
12:09 am
information at this time yesterday but now we do know the identity of another hero who helped stop the gunman. mark moogalian was the first one to try to take the gun from the shooter on friday. he was shot in the neck and is recovering in hospital. he will receive his own legion of honor when he is better. french sources say the suspected gunman ayoub el khazzani was well known to european authorities before the attempted train attack. the moroccan national was the subject of an intelligence notice. el khazzani's lawyer says her client denies he was trying to launch a terror attack and was planning only to rob the passengers. >> for the latest on the story let's bring in jim bitterman who joins us live from paris this morning. and for all of the criticism of security on european trains,
12:10 am
officials were aware of el khazzani to some degree. he was on the radar, so to speak. >> that's right, errol. but because he was on the radar, politicians and commentators are beginning to ask why it is that security officials didn't do something to head off the attack ahead of time. long before ayoub el khazzani was taken down and hog tied after the train attack on friday he was well known to european authorities. he was the subject of what is known of an s notice that can signal intelligence communities across europe that a person merits special surveillance. it was that notice which brought to attention his trip from berlin to istanbul in may. it's not known if he also travelled to syria at that point. a senior european official says it is believe head was likely to a cell of isis fighters in turkey.
12:11 am
they are thought so to have directed a foiled attack in a church in the paris suburbs. the gunman accidentally shot himself in the foot and turned himself in to medical personnel. el khazzani also does not have been appeared to have been highly trained especially after his assault rifle apparently jammed. >> yes, he clearly had no firearms strange whatsoever. and, yes, if he knew what he was doing or even just got lucky and did the right thing he would have been able to operate through all eight of those magazines and we would have all been in trouble and wouldn't be here today. >> reporter: el khazzani who is undergoing questioning was not, according to his lawyer, a terrorist at all. she says he was trying to pull off an armed robbery of the train with weapons he found in a brussels public park. el khazzani's father in southern spain said his son never talked
12:12 am
politics but liked football and fishing although he admitted that the 25-year-old had been arrested on drug-related charges. given his track record and the amount of weaponry he brought on the train, french authorities are not buying the lawyer or father's depiction of his motives. and the prosecutor has to make a decision before the end of the afternoon today, basically under french law el khazzani can be held 96 hours for questioning without charge but it's that period ends this afternoon and the prosecutor has to bring him before an antiterrorism judge and bring charges or let him go. that latter thing seems to be pretty much impossible at this point. i think there will be charges brought. it will be interesting to see what charges are brought. the prosecutor, i don't think, is buying into that lawyer's argument that this was just an
12:13 am
armed robbery gone bad and it wasn't a terrorism offense. >> and there is plenty of evidence we have seen and heard from witnesses that puts holes in that argument. but let's see what the charges will be. jim bitterman live from paris for us, thanks. 14 people are under arrest in morocco and spain accused of recruiting for isis. >> the spanish interior ministry announced the suspects were arrested in madrid and morocco. this is a result of a joint ongoing operation between the two nations. now to the korean peninsula. the north and south reached an agreement to ease tensions after days of marathon talks. south korea has stopped propaganda broadcasts over the border. and north korea express red great over recent landmine blasts that wounded two south korean soldiers. kathy novak is standing by with more on this deal.
12:14 am
an expression of regret from north korea an end to cross border propaganda broadcasts by south korea how significant is this? >> it is gasignificant they cam to any sort of agreement. pyongyang issued a deadline of 5:00 p.m. local time saturday for south korea to stop the propaganda broadcasts and north korea saying that they would attack and south korea and the united states were preparing themselves for that possibility but it's we saw these high-level talks that went for about 43 or 44 hours. and you can imagine there must have been a lot of back and forth on the red lines for both sides that north korea wanted the broadcasts to stop and south korea was demanding an apology over the landmines. president park geun-hye said that publicly yesterday. an expression of regret is the

compromise that was reached. north korea doesn't apologize for much, if anything. but it does get it out of taking responsibility, specifically. because back when these accusations were made by both south korea and the united nations, that north korea was responsible for planting the landmines on the south korea side of the demilitarized zone, that aborter between north and south korea, north korea denied responsibility. now it is able to express regret saying it is regretful that this incident occurred and south korea is taking that as an apology and that seems good enough to stop the broadcasts that were so angering the north korean regime. >> and both countries agreed to work toward the resumption of reunions of families separated by the korean war in the early '50s. this is significant if the north and south are able to achieve this. >> reporter: absolutely.
12:16 am
and it's all this picture of mending fences or having some kind of a bettering of relations between north and south korea which have not been good to say the least recently. the crux of this meeting was to get over the recent tensions the brink of war situation. but as we say, they were in there talking for so long that much more must have been on the table. it was this rare opportunity to bring together these high-level people to talk about the things that have been plaguing this peninsula. we had discussed the possibility that perhaps economic sanctions were brought up. we know that's something that north korea wants lifted that didn't make it on to the final statement but family reunions did. we understand that more talks will be held next month with the view to having the reunions around the end of september when the koreas mark their thanksgiving. that will be significant if they are able to come to an agreement

in u.s. politics, vice president joe biden is sending new signals he just might jump into the race. >> momentum seems to be building for a biden challenge to hillary clinton for the democratic nomination. joe johns has the details. >> reporter: joe biden arrived a it the white house with a lot on his mind his weekly lunch with the president in the oval office taking on new meaning.
12:22 am
>> everybody is pretty interested to find out, is what decision the vice president is going to make. the president has indicated his view that the decision to add joe biden to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision he ever made in politics. >> reporter: a democratic source tells cnn the vice president is now leaning more toward running for president than against it. the buzz about a possible biden candidacy intensified after he traveled from delaware to washington this weekend for a secret meeting with influential liberal senator elizabeth warren. >> i'm not surprised that he is seeking her counsel. >> reporter: so far the massachusetts senator has refused to endorse hillary clinton saying this. >> i don't think anyone has been anointed. i want to see all the presidential candidates lay out where they stand on key issues. >> reporter: biedsen associates
12:23 am
see a potential opening because clinton is battling trust sures. >> did you wipe the server? >> reporter: the latest poll shows that 53% have an unfavorable opinion of clinton and 44% view biden that way. bernie sanders says the numbers helping him. >> we are gaining. what the polls seem to indicate is that hillary clinton's support is receding. >> reporter: biden would face major hurdles, raising enough money and quickly starting up an organization. he has been talking to advisers and supporters about whether a run is realistic. he needs to make a decision by october 1st. the official message from the vice president's office is that he has not made a decision about running for president and any speculation to the con tracing is false. joe johns, cnn, washington.
12:24 am
republican presidential candidate jeb bush is trying to defuse a controversy over his use of the term "anchor babies" but he may have created a new one instead. the term is used to describe children born in the u.s. born to illegal immigrants. but they are born to people legally here as well. bush insisted he is not using the term in a derogatory way. >> my background, my life, the fact that i'm immersed in the immigrant experience, this is ludicrous for the clinton campaign and others to suggest that how i'm using a derogatory term. what i'm talking about is the specific case of fraud being commit where had there's organized efforts and frankly it's more related to asian people coming into our country,
12:25 am
having children in that organized efforts taking advantage of a noble concept which is birthright citizenship. i support the 14th amendment. >> that did not clear up controversy for bush. after that statement, a senator from hawaii called for an immediate retraction and an apology to the asian community. a spokeswoman explained that bush was referring to birth tourism where chinese women come to the united states on a tourist visa and give birth. in a new bush video, donald trump's immigration policy comes under attack. trump's plan to deport 11 million illegal immigrants is catastrophic. trump is using words from bush's own mother against him in a video on trump's instagram
12:26 am
account. take a look. >> would you like to see him run? >> no, i really don't. i think it's a great country and there are a lot of great families. but there are other people out there that are very qualified and we've had enough bushes. >> that from number after years ago. trump says that bush's low energy and lacks substance and ideas. and trump is rekindling a feud with a fox news anchor. he took verbal shots at her on twitter. he writes i liked the kelly file better without megyn kelly. perhaps she could take another 111 day unscheduled vacation. and he wrote, the bimbo back in town, i hope not for long. trump accused kelly of being unfair to him when he asked
12:27 am
about insulting remarks he made about women. >> there is nowhere he won't go apparently. the trading day is just beginning for stocks in europe. we'll see how they are reacting to the asian market's lackluster performance.

you are watching "cnn newsroom." your last half hour of the day with the both of us. i'm errol barnett. >> i'm rosemary church. sad news from the world of motorsports. justin wilson has died from injuries sustained at the pocono raceway on sunday. he was struck in the head by the
12:31 am
nose cone of another car that crashed. he was 37 years old. north and south korea have reached an agreement to ease tensions on the peninsula. the south has stopped its propaganda broadcasts and north korea express red great over recent landmine blasts that wounded two south korean soldiers. europe's major stock exchanges are now open a day after stocks tumbled there in the wake of asia's selloff and look at the difference. what a difference a day makes. and look at the ftse 100 and the dax up more than 1 1/2%. paris heading in a similar direction as is zurich. the stocks in asia struggled to regain ground on tuesday but it's by the end of trading hours most of the arrows were down. you can see there, the shanghai
12:32 am
composite lost more than 7.5%. the nikkei in tokyo had actually got itself into some positive territory. but as you see there, it ended the day nearly 4% down. australia was up doing pretty well there. hong kong was up about 1/2%. let's take a look at markets in india struggling to rebound from steep losses on monday. we do a broadcast delay. but when the markets there opened there were gains to brag about. already that has been erased. what's happening? >> reporter: that's right. we lost some of the gains we made earlier this morning but just about five minutes ago when i last checked the numbers the markets are once again in positive territory. just by a little bit.
12:33 am
the sensex was up a little bit. but it shows us the extent of the volatility. i spoke to traders this morning and they said we are just sitting here watching the knives fall and wondering which knives do we try and catch? there is so much volatility and trading is really choppy. it's not surprising to see markets go up and markets come down. the stocks are becoming cheap but the high value stocks, they haven't come down yet which makes them think there is more room for this market to go lower even. so we can expect a lot more volatility for the indian market in the days ahead. having said that, the one piece of good news here is that people aren't really panicking over here in india, at least not just yet and that's because the fundamentals of the indian
12:34 am
economy are still pretty strong. if you look at growth in india, the economy is growing. it's in pretty robust shape. inflation which is usually been a big drag on india's growth, that has been coming under check. the fiscal deficit which is another huge problem for india, that's been brought under control over the last couple months. commodity prices are low. oil prices are lower which is a boom for india. all these things combined stand well for india. the fundaments are good. the indian finance minister made that very clear yesterday. he reiterated that any factors that are causing the losses in the market are all external. he said there is not a single domestic factor causing the market to come down. but people are waiting and watching and wondering whether this is -- as some people are calling a temporary tantrum in
12:35 am
the stock market or the beginning of something more serious and the one cue they are waiting for which is rest of the world is waiting for is to see what the u.s. federal reserve does in september. is it going to raise the interest rates? if it does we are likely to see more losses in the stock market. if this is the beginning of a global recession, then, of course, errol, all bets are off. >> for the time being there, is no panicking happening where you are. and reasons to be optimistic. the viewers seeing cnn's global resources at work. great to see you joining us from mumbai. one cause of the asia market selloff is the falling price of oil. it dropped to a 6 1/2 year low on monday and the slump has prompted something of a showdown among the three largest oil producers, all fighting for global market share. >> call it an east-west oil
12:36 am
showdown for market share. saudi arabia, russia, and the u.s., producing nearly 1/3 of global supplies. in november 2014 at this opec meeting, the kingdom doubled down the stakes as prices were spiraling lower. >> they had to devise a strategy and they went to keep production high and this year increase production and accept lower prices and in an attempt to drive out the competition. >> that is what they have done. a third of the 12 opec producers are based right here in the gulf and they voted to support saudi arabia in this fight for market share. regional sources tell me they expect prices at $60 or above at this stage planning for the u.s.
12:37 am
shale producers to be out of business. the number of u.s. oil rigs has fallen in iraq but not american production as companies squeeze costs. chris faulkner was in dubai. >> we are paying less to drill and frac. not 60% less but the margin has helped us. we are getting discounts from the service providers to keep on fracking. >> reporter: the price advantage clearly sits in the gulf producer' camp where the cost is $5 a barrel on shore. the problem in saudi arabia is prolific spending by a new king who has opened up the coffers to maintain domestic stability while fighting a war in yermen. >> if we look at saudi arabia's budget break even oil price it was $100 a barrel. there is an absolute need to pull back on spending especially with the weak outlook for oil in
12:38 am
the medium term. >> this price war could take longer than most expect. saudi arabia took a similar strategy three years ago. >> in 1986 they did the same but it took 15 years for them to rebalance the markets and drive out the high-cost producers. maybe it won't take as long this time but it might take several years. >> reporter: opec players certainly are not ready. but the gulf producers have over 2.5 trillion dollars in the bank and are being forced to use it. cnn, abu dhabi. after the break we'll have an update for you on deadly flooding in turkey and what has really been terrible weather there. stay with us.
12:39 am
12:40 am
12:41 am
at least eight people have
12:42 am
died in northeastern turkey after two buildings collapse in heavy flooding. an adult and child are still missing. >> we want to turn to our meteorologist, pedram javaheri to get more on the conditions there. the images are awful and of course word of this adult and child missing. >> it is a devastating story, guys. this is something with flooding over this region. it's not unusual to see the geography is prime to have these events taking place. the town of hopa is a town of 18,000 people. upwards of a foot of rainfall came down in this region. as we bring in the terrain and take you over the black sea. the moisture comes in a northerly fashion and forced to rise and runs into the mountains here. and the mountains within 10 miles are going from sea level
12:43 am
up to 6,000 feet or 2,000 meters high. this forces the air to rise and cools and condenses and squeezes out the rainfall that is high elevation and it flows back down to the community where the flooding took place and becomes a devastating scenario. you look at the numbers, the rainfall total is staggering. upwards of ten inches coming down where in an entire month you would get 8 inches or 170 millimeters of rainfall in this region of turkey. we know that rain showers across the area are going to improve in terms of the severity and the strength. but talking about the northwest side of the united states. we know widespread wildfires over this region. we have a center of circulation. the jet stream takes a nose dive and we get a marine influence here and the cooler temperatures
12:44 am
are going to help the firefighting efforts. the next six the ten days above normal for rainfall. and the temps in the 80s and cools off significantly down to 70 fahrenheit. good news there. and watching a tropical threat in the atlantic ocean. we have tropical storm danny. and tropical storm erica that is forming and it will strengthen as it heads to the leeward islands. and all of this is going to be beneficial in an area where water rationing has been in place in cuba and puerto rico. good news when it comes to some of the rainfall that is needed of this region. severe to exceptional drought over eastern puerto rico. the storm systems come in on the
12:45 am
weaker end of a tropical depression with danny. not going to be a problem with the winds but going to be beneficial when it comes to rainfall coming over this region in the coming few days. >> a lot of activity. >> thanks. >> many thanks. russian president vladimir putin is attending the first day of the international aviation and space show near moscow today. and reports say russia could sign a weapons deal with iran at this event. for the latest let's go to matthew chance live in russia. so what all do we know about the weapons contract the russians might sign with iran? >> reporter: well, it's pretty much a done deal as far as we're aware. we're talking about a deal for iran to buy some very sophisticated surface-to-air missiles called s-300s. they signed the deal first in 2007 but because of a united
12:46 am
nations arms embargo, russia decided to suspend that sale but that restriction was lifted back in april by vladimir putin. what we are expecting here is for an iranian delegation to arrive and to finally ink that deal that would see them take possession of one of the most sophisticated surface-to-air missile systems in the world. it's controversial. once they get those s-300s it would make it more difficult for countries like his to strike at its nuclear facilities. the missiles are capable of taking out fighter aircraft and bomber aircraft of the kind that israel and the united states use. but the expectation is now there is a deal over iran's nuclear issue, that missile sale will go ahead if not today then very soon. >> what is the fallout from this contract?
12:47 am
>> reporter: as i say, it's been criticized. the potential deal has been criticized by western governments, particularly the united states. but there is nothing they can do to stop it, particularly at a time when russia is under a lot of pressure to sell its weapons. it's a big export earner and russia is under sanctions and it is cut off from western markets, forcing the country to focus on its traditional markets in the middle east and far east as well. the chinese authorities and indians as well will be here at this max arms fair to see what they want to purchase. the jordanian king and saudi king will be here as well. that is interesting because saudi arabia has not bought russia weapons before. but the expectation today is that it may be looking at making some significant purchases here
12:48 am
at this arm's fair. saudi arabia traditionally buys american weapons and other western armory as well. also the egyptian president, abdel fattah el-sisi is expected to be here this week. so russia is really pushing hard to make as many arms sales as it can to countries that don't fall under this western embargo. countries in the middle east and far east as well. >> matthew chance live there at the aviation show in russia. many thanks to you. >> still to come, a fraternity suspended for displaying offensive signs and banners. while a few thought they were funny, most weren't laughing at all. >> we thought it was a joke. >> this is not a day or time and never should be a time when you
12:49 am
should expect that when you come to college. it was sickening and it's unacceptable. bp 64/40 sterilize sites. multiple foreign objects in the body. tweezers. (buzz!)

12:54 am
and enrollment services sick to her stomach. >> they thought it was a joke. >> no, this is not a time and this should never be a time to expect that when you come to college and it was unacceptable. >> reporter: the science were seen by parents that has were dropping their kids off to college. they were removed at the request of campus police but the message spread to all ends of social media. >> to have this happen during move in weekend was just really disheartening. >> reporter: the university president sent this letter to the campus community saying there is apparently a gap on their education in sexual assault. he said this confirms our collective efforts are failing to register for some. >> what are you doing to fix that? >> we will not stop. this topic is important to me personally and to the university. the president is out in front of
12:55 am
it. we're not going to tolerate it. when an incident happens like this it shows us we're going to be redouble our efforts. >> and that was from our affiliate wtkr reporting. the university and csigma nu ar investigating it. >> you want just a much a right to education as the men do and a sign like that sends a different message. >> and there needs to be more respect for women. a new halloween costume is drawing controversy. the caitlyn jenner costume could be headed to a store near you. >> a petition on change.org is calling for the costume to be scrapped, saying it mocks transgender people. but at least one costume
12:56 am
wholesaler says it is meant to celebrate jenner, not mock her. let's try to get you in the feel-good mood. the dead have risen again for the cable channel amc. the series "fear the walk dead" was the top cable series premier in history. >> the new series is a companion show to the original series "the walk dead". >> that's the end of our two hours. you're watching "cnn newsroom." i'm errol barnett. >> we are welcome the walking dead. i'm rosemary church.
