a warm welcome back to our vil around rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. here are the top stories. donald trump is calling for a total pan on all muslims entering the united states. the republican previously has called for a registration database and surveillance and possibly closure of some u.s. mosques. rival candidates reject his new proepsl. >> the fbi says the couple that murdered people at a holiday
party were radicalized before the attack. they say there's evidence the massacre was preplanned and that the shooters practiced at a shooter range ahead of their attack. >> oscar pistorius is in a court right now. these images from just moments ago. this is a bail hearing. he follows his new conviction in the murder of his girlfriend. his new sentencing date may be set at this appearance. a live report coming up. >> now, we told you about donald trump's proposal to prevent muslims from coming into the country. it has deepened the controversy over his stand, and it brought nearly universal condemnation from republican and democratic presidential rivals. >> this comes on the heels of a mass shooting and president obama's plea on the country not to turn against each other. the executive director of the
council on american islamic nations, said trump sounded more like the leader of a lynch mob than a presidential front runner. >> this is outrageous, coming from someone who wants to assume the highest office in the land. it is reckless and simply un-american. he and others are playing into the hands of isis. this is exactly what isis wants from americans. to turn against each other. >> now, while the political backlash was immediate, not everyone opposes trump's proposal. >> and as randi kaye is about to shows, there's approval among many of the supporters. >> reporter: as supporters waited in line to hear donald trump speak tonight in south carolina, word started to spread about his latest idea, banning all muslims from entering the u.s. >> donald trump is now saying muslims should not be allowed to enter the united states until
the u.s. figures out what's going on. do you agree? >> yes. >> reporter: why? >> who knows what they're going to bring into this country. bombs, isis. they have to go. >> reporter: he's not the only one supporting this. in fact, no one here we spoke with had a problem with the plan. >> that's a very prudent idea, and i think he's done due diligence when he makes that statement. we have to protect the american citizens, and is vetting process lacks integrity. >>. >> reporter: that's not true. the vetting process is vigorous. some folks here saying not all muslims are bad when pressed but they don't want to take any chances even if somes are coming to terms with it slowly. >> i think they should go through screening, extensive screening. we just let terrorists into that country that did the california
shooting. >> he's not screening. he says no muslim should be entering the country. do you agree? >> yes. >> reporter: trump's harsh words have energized hsupporters. he shared part of his plan, including targeting terrorist families. >> you have to wipe them out. it's the only way you'll start terrorism. >> reporter: are you in favor of bombing terrorist homes? >> absolutely. people will continue to reproduce, and they will raise children in their believes. somebody just needs to go in there and take control of this. i think it's going rampant, and i'm worried about america. i'm worried about our sate. they're getting in. they need to be stopped. >> reporter: after a november rally, trump had some of his strongest words yet. >> we have to knock the blp out of these people. >> reporter: why do you think
he's the guy to take it on? >> he can build a coalition of people to take them on. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, south carolina. >> u.s. homeland security is urging americans not to vilify muslims and to fight extremism by having faith. >> we spoke to the muslim community at a civil liberties round table. >> one month before my grandfather died in 1966, and this was in the era of jim rowe, the segregated south before the civil rights movement and laws, he said something that i believe today. quote, bitterness grows out of hopelessness, and there is no hopelessness in this situation. however uncomfortable and menacing it may be at times, faith in the ultimate strength of the democratic philosophy and code of this nation as a whole has always been stronger than
the impulse to despair. >> johnson went onto say any discrimination against muslims in the u.s. would be un-american and counter to security efforts. we shift to another story we're watching. and right now oscar pistorius is in a south african court. >> we're looking at live pictures coming to us. this bail hearing comes after h his conviction was upgraded last week to murder for the death of his girlfriend. a new date for sentencing may also be set here. let's thereon the representative of the defense. >> one sixth of his sentence, and then the remaining part of his sentence in terms of conditions under correctional super vision, the accused was released after 12 months, and he has his sentence in terms of the correctional super vision at the end of october, 2015.
for the purposes of the present application, and you'll see this from the affidavit, the accused has offered to proceed with the house arrest, but on stricter conditions. previously in terms of the correctional super vision conditions, he was allowed to leave the house at between the hours 7:00 and 12:00. he has agreed that he would abanden that right that he had in terms of the previous sentence, and the previous conditions, and that he would accept that he should remain in house arrest at t should he, for whatever reason need to lever, he would do so with permission of the investigating officer or his advocate. that's also subject to your
sanctioning. he also agreed subject to the sanctioning that he would submit himself to electronic monitoring to be monitored. a probation officer in the department of correctional services. >> this condition in respect of the house arrest that he could leave between 7:00 in the morning and 12:00 midday. why is it necessary to change it? >> the state insisted on it. in order to get to an -- to an unopposed bail, it's for that reason. >> okay. yes. you may proceed. >> it was solely for that reason. there was no other reason. >> thank you. >> just so get some agreement. it is also that the accused would subject, and all subject to your direction, of course, my lord, that fixing the amount of 10,000 to be paid on friday.
the reason was the it was not part of the informal agreement. it came up this morning. >> how much did he pay? >> it was 1 million, but the it was a guarantee. he hasn't got that money. and the guarantee was then cancelled. the it was not a cash amount. we'd also ask the court to consider that the amount be paid on the friday before 1600, but the court would order he be released -- >> listening to the oscar representing oscar pistorius discuss changes in pistorius's house arrest conditions. they would recommend. let's bring in our cnn correspondent who's watching and listening from just outside the courthouse in south africa. describe to us what exactly we're hearing and what we might
also learn today as pistorius faces this bail hearing. >> well, what a dramatic turn of events. just last week, a homicide conviction overturned to murder. what you're hearing, is the defense lawyer making his case to ensure that bail is granted for pistorius, in other words, to try to get the judge to agree to allow him to spend the next while at home and under house arrest. just to remind you, and we heard from this morning, saying that oscar pistorius had been serving house arrest and adhering to the rules and regular lulgss. now he's saying perhaps he can sweeten the deal by saying i'm not coming out and i'm going to ensure that i'med adhering to stricter rules and even electronic man or thing. to ensure that the state
prosecutor does not see him as a flight risk, but also just to remind you, over the next half hour, we should also be hearing a bit of detail as to whether the sentencing is going to come through in the next year. remember, the courts go to recess on the 18th of this month and return on the 25th of next year. this could take quite some time. >> so a few details still to hammer out there today. and just broaden out the picture for us. this case was watched so closely with the man formally known as the blade rubbenner. falling from grace. how have people in south africa raektded to his charges being changed this past week to murder? >> reporter: remember, this has been a very sensitive issue for south africans, because there's a lot of worry about violence and violent crime against women.
in fact, the conviction has come through during the 17 days of activism in south africa. it has been welcomed, specifically by women groups. more importantly, we've also seen a lot of concern as to whether he's going to be allowed to stay at home over the next while or if he's going to be forced to go to prison. we've talking about a convicted murder. a lot of people asking what's now. how many convicted murders are able to stay at home under house arrest. one of the things that could come forward and could be mentioned today is whether the defense team is going to want to take this to the constitutional courts. that is the highest court in south africa, and that will mean that pistorius might be thinking about an appeal. whether it will be heard in the constitutional court remains to be seen. he basically needs to prove that it was an unfair trial. one of the big things surrounding this is the fact that we've had a lot of
international media scrutiny, local media scrutiny. a big spotlight on the judge, and the former judge was told she made fundamental mistakes and ignored evidence that brought her to the decision of culpable homicide which has now been overturned. >> it's incredible, and this continues to be a fascinating case to watch. we got a few glimpses of oscar miss tore ya showipistorius sho emotion. we'll continue to watch this. thanks a lot. >> and we shift pack to the united states. chicago police are facing federal scrutiny as they release video of another police shooting death. questions are also being raised about a possible coverup in the shooting death of laquan mcdonald. ryan young has the details.
>> reporter: after two fatal officer involved shoot gts, the chicago police department is the digit of an investigation. >> i am joining, the same systems this fail community members fail officers by creating mistrust between officers and people we're swosh to protect. >> reporter: the reports reveal discrepancies between the responses of responding officers and what's seen on video. mcdonald is seen walking in the treat with a knife after authorities say he punctured the tire of a police car. the are on the left-hand side side of the screen with weapons drawn as mcdonald moves away from the officers. according to van dyke, he raised
the knife across his chest and over his shoulder, pointing the knife at van dyke and attempting to kill van dyke. the teen is walking away. that's when van dyke starts firing. according to the police reports, in defense of his life. then van dyke fired his hand fun to stop the attack. as mcdonald falls, van dyke keeps firing. the police report says he appeared to be attempting to get up. the partner wrote mcdonald swung the knife toward officers in an aggressive manner. >> the third officer saying mcdonald raised his right arm toward officer van dyke as if attacking him. even the sergeant who reviewed
the video found it consistent with the accounts of all the witnesses. van dyke is out on bail. his attorney maintains he acted in self-defense. >> ryan young, cnn, chicago. >> what's interesting is the video of mcdonald's death is. >> ronald johnson is shown running from police officers off camera. an officer shot johnson twice. >> at the time of the shooting, mr. johnson was armed with a handgun and had run from an area where shots were recently fired. he resisted arrest and ran into a public park and toward an occupied place vehicle arriving on the scene in that park. based upon an objective review of the law, we determined that
the prosecution could not establish that the actions of officer hernandez were not reasonable under the laws of the state of illinois. >> ronald johnson's mother who pushed for the video to be released has said it proves her son was murdered. >> "cnn newsroom" continues after this short break. so get this, at&t and directv are now one. which means you can watch live sports on the go. live from the edge of your seat. or that seat.

we want to take you back inside the courtroom in south africa where oscar pistorius is listening to the defense and the prosecution discuss with the judge possible new bail arrangements. let's listen. >> i think it's quite educated. >> okay. thank you. >> yes, sir. you may do so. >> if the court considers the radius that we have an airport that we would not want him to get close to. and so if that would fall outside that radius, that would be so much better. i've just been informed we would be able to monitor the radius if

respect? mr. pistorius, can you stand up? do you confirm that you voluntarily made this affidavit which has been handed to court? the affidavit by the accused will be labeled exhibit a. and the court will adjourn for about 15 minutes to consider this submissions made by both counsel. court adjourned. >> court adjourns there, and south africa after you heard the representative of the defense speaking with the judge, and the prosecution. it all seems to center around his house arrest, the terms and what distance he can go. the prosecution mentioning a local airport. they've adjourned for now. we'll reject with our correspondent there in the next hour.

rainfall. an onslaught of one and another storm behind it, and a third storm by the middle of the week. easily picking out the pineapple express. moisture originates in areas out of the hawaiian islands. how about this. rainfall accumulations as impressive as they come, up to six to ten inches in a few spots. northern california into areas of the olympic rain forest, maybe 20 inches of rainfall in the next seven days. that remarkable. a lot of times people think the northwestern u.s. is a gloomy place. it is among the cloudiest places from seattle to portland. about 220 cloudy days. rainy days are about 150. come to the southern u.s.,

asked if muslims posed a danger to the u.s., earlier, here was his response. >> i love the muslims. they're great people. >> reporter: now he says our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. trump presidential rival, chris christie quickly dismissed it. >> this is the kind of thing people say when they have no experience and don't know what they're talking about. we don't need to resort to that type of activity. >> reporter: lindsey gram tweeted every candidate needs to do the right ring. >> bush said his policy proposals are not serious. cruz distanced hymn. -- himself. >> that's not my policy. i have a three year mother tore yum on refugees coming from
countries where isis and al qaeda control a substantial amount of territory. >> this poll shows that 33% of iowa caucus goers say they support donald trump. that's an eight point increase from last month. >> the u.s. people are looking for a commander in chief who will keep us safe. >> reporter: ted cruz is in second place. ben carson tumbled seven points, now the third choice of iowa republicans likely to vote. what unites gop voters is disdain for president obama? and republican candidates spent the day competing to criticize the address on isis. >> we don't need a president who goes on national television and lectures the american people and says the problem we have is islam phobia.
>> as for trump's new proposal, his gop rivals are uniformly opposed to it. even ben carson to said he couldn't see a muslim being president. he said everyone should be registered and monitored, but he doesn't advocate being selective on one's religion. >> ben ferguson joins us from dallas to talk about all of this. ben, we all know muslims are a popular target for donald trump. that aside, the concept that the complete banning of one demographic entering the country is outrageous, and it's un-american and unconstitutional. yet, we are talking about the republican front runner here. how can this be explained? >> well, i think there's two things. you've seen virtually every republican candidate come out and condemn this, and says it's another example of donald trump going too far.
he's also filling a void where others don't feel president obama has gone far enough. he's filling the void where there's nothing that's changed from this maradministration, he he says i have a big bold idea. it's not well thought out. it's also an issue of can you have a test to come in and get into this country that if you're a muslim, we're going to say no to you? there's a lot of questions about batesic issues? what if you were in the military and now you're out as a contractor. i would think legally you would have the right to come back. >> the concept is a slippery slope. you have cruz also running and frequently described as least liked by democrats and republicans in capitol hill. even he says this is something he cannot support.
but will be any establishment voice louder than donald trump's that will denounce something like this? it appeals to the sliver of the republican base. >> i think you're going to see a big us against donald trump moment on the 15th when you have the next debate. virtually every campaign that i've talked to tonight as said the same thing. this is out of step with reality. this is out of step with the republican party. this is donald trump going off the reservation on his own, and this is also going to be a point i think they'll use to say this is what we've all been warning you about. you may like him because he says he's going to go after isis and make america great, but the devil is in the details. for him to be able to defend this on stage, when every other republican will disagree with him in a big way, i think that will be harder to overcome. >> before this statement, donald
trump was up even higher in the polls. he's been the teflon don, nothing he's said has changed that. do you think that will continue, and at what point will you get a conservative voice to jump up and say this will cost republicans the election, and it really is enough by now in. >> i think you're seeing a lot of this, and also candidates like rubio and cruz doing well in the polls. i think when you see them unite behind this idea we're talking about, it's probably going to hurt donald trump, i think, in the near future. he's been surging because he's been opposite in foreign policy. many americans are concerned about the lack of focus on dealing with isis. and the lack of focus of dealing with terrorism, especially after paris, but also this attack in san bernardino. so that's why he's done so well. the question is did he overstep on this statement? i think you going to see voters
say yes, he said. some will support him because they love him. the other thing, his supporters are fanatics for him. they absolutely love him. and they're going to love him. the more he's criticized by anybody in the media, the more they'll stand by him regardless of what he said. the question is can he add to the number? i'm not sure he can. >> thanks, ben. >> absolutely. >> want to get some international reaction now. we want to go to sara sidner who joins us from istanbul in turkey. as people across the middle east and the world wake up to this news of what donald trump has been saying about his plans for muslims if he becomes president, what's been the reaction in that part of the world?
>> reporter: we've been looking on social media and hearing from different leaders of different countries that are predominantly muslim. turkey has not yet responded. people are saying things like well, perhaps trump is okay with taking money from rich muslims but apparently he's also okay with being a racist. we should also mention, there's a trump towers here in istanbul. it's the only one in a p predominantly muslim country. people saying maybe he should take down his ugly towers here. as far as indonesia goes, their ministry spoke out saying he is not an official from the united states. he is simply a candidate. normally we don't comment, but they wanted to put out that islam is a religion of piece, and they feel like there is a few people who have co-on theed
the religion, and he is responding to those people and coloring everyone with the same brush, and it's unfair. you also heard from islam supporters in thailand saying this is completely and totally gbs the american way, what is happening here, hearing it from a front runner who was a candidate for the presidential position there in the united states. i think it's given people a lot of worry. there are people who are simply angry and disgusted hearing these kinds of words from a presidential candidate who has people know, quite a bit of support from some of those folks in the united states. >> of course, it has to be said that even former vice president dick cheney is not in agreement with donald trump's plans, but how uneasy has this made muslims across the world? you talked there about some of the reaction. is there a fear going forward, but is there also realization
that in a sense, donald trump stands very much alone, away from the republican party machine on this? >> i don't think that distinction has yet been made. when somebody in his position known around the world who is doing very well in the polls, who is a presidential candidate, who is vying for this top spot, it's hard for people to make that separation to say well, these other people are saying this. it's an extremely bold statement. a lot of people looking at that and saying is this the person that's going to represent america, and what does that mean for us? let's not even forget tourism as well. especially women, they may be those who suffer the most after this for fear of sort of xenophobic ideas. there is concern on that front that there will be more discrimination because of
comments like this. >> sara sidner bringing us some reaction there to donald trump's proposals regarding muslims. she joins us live from turkey. many thanks to you, sara. >> and in south africa, oscar pistorius is back in court right now. these pictures were from earlier. right now the hearing has adjourned, and the judge is considering the bail application. >> and this hearing follows pistorius's upgraded murder conviction last week for the shooting death of his girlfriend. a new date for sentencing could also be set at this hearing. >> our cnn correspondent joins us now from south africa with the latest on this. just bring us up to speed on what happened last hour, and what we're expecting to happen next. >> well, oscar pistorius's
lawyer outlined stricter bail conditions for pistorius. but remember that pistorius is currently under house arrest at his uncle's home, and a previous and lighter conviction of culpable homicide. that all changed last week when it was upgraded to murder. many asking the question what now. can a convicted murder stay at home under house arrest until his sentencing? that is going to be very important. they came out and said that we agree to any kind of electronic monitoring. he won't be allowed to leave the premises without having police present, and also saying that they can offer up $750 in bail. they cannot afford any more than that, because oscar pistorius has basically ran out of money. meanwhile, the state has come pack and said that they concur with all the stricter conditions put forward by the defense, and this is the point where the judge has now taken the decision
to adjourn the court. also of importance here, airler is the fact that the defense has noted they're going to the constitutional courts. that is the highest court in south africa. they will be appealing this murder conviction. >> and it continues to be a fascinating case to watch, because the judgment made in changing pistorius's charges essentially said the previous judge didn't acknowledge all evidence put in front of her. we all remember watching closely day in and day out, those proceedings. so we're hearing here a discussion on how bail will be changed. will they also set a date for additional sentencing? what else needs to be done to follow the guidelines of now the fact that he was charged with murder rather than culpable homicide? >> well, this is the interesting point, because you have a sentencing that needs to occur sometime next year.
courts go to recess. they come back on the 25th of january. we have a court that is full. are they going to prioritize it so he's sentenced as soon as possible, or do you think there's going to be some kind of delay which will give the defense team an opportunity to put forward the appeal to the constitutional courts? there's a sense that perhaps they're going to try to delay it as much as responsible so pistorius can stay under house arrest until the appeal goes through to the constitutional court. there's a lot of different elements that are at play right now, and remember, we've got very different circumstances that have played out for this case. firstly, and the spotlight of the international and local media. in fact, this is being broadcast live to all the local media as well. you also have a disabled person that needs to be treated a special way in prison. there are circumstances taken into consideration by all judges. the judge that's presided over
the original trial has been land based for not taking all the evidence into consideration, and the judge that overturned that conviction has come out and said that some of the evidence was ignored. >> stand by for us. we expect the hearing to resume at any moment. we'll take a very short break on cnn and bring our viewers back inside the courtroom in moments. , abreva can heal it in as few as two and a half days when used at the first sign. without it the virus spreads from cell to cell. only abreva penetrates deep and starts to work immediately to block the virus and protect healthy cells. you could heal your cold sore, fast, as fast as two and a half days when used at the first sign. learn how abreva starts to work immediately at abreva.com don't tough it out, knock it out, fast. with abreva.
this was one of two candle light vigils held monday night in san bernardino, california. one for county employees and another at a nearby university. >> five days have passed since the massacre that killed 14 people. the city reopened the street in front of site of the killings earlier in the week. >> investigators are digging deeper into the background of the couple who carried out the attack. >> the husband and wife apparently had become radical long before the killings. >> reporter: for the first time a picture has emerged to the attackers together. the photo was snapped as the
married couple passed but an airport in july 2014. >> as the information has progressed, we have learned and believe that both subjects were radicalized and have been for quite some time. >> reporter: officials believe the wife wassed are calized before stepping foot in the u.s., raising alarm bells for her visa. the state department said she would have had to have an in person interview, but it shows she failed to show up for the interview. it's unclear if she ever rescheduled. >> the background check on her is extensive, as you would get on a visa or green card or employment situation here in the states. >> malik was born in pakistan and spent some sometime in saudi arabia. she won her degree in pharmacy. a professor there told reporters

because we can't import any cement from turkey. turkey has closed the nearby border crossing as a result, desperately needed building materials are in short supply. rebuilding this town could take a very long time, but like a phoenix rising from the ashes, it will rise again. ben wedeman, kobani, syria. >> still to come here on cnn news room, we'll take you live to rome. in fact, we can show you live pictures right now as the pope gets ready to open the church's holy door and kick off a jubilee here. >> that and volunteers bringing a touch of wap warmth to refugees arriving in europe.

thank you very much. >> mr. pistorius appeared today in court after being served with a notice in terms of section 319 of the criminal procedure act 51 of 1977. the appearance was necessitated by the ruling of the supreme court which ruling is now public knowledge and is not necessary for me to mention it in this judgment. since the accused has now been convicted of the crime which may attract a direct imprisonment sentence of 15 years or more, if the court imposing sentence finds that the there are no
substantial in comparing circumstances, the court should look carefully at this application which has been brought by mr. pistorius. it was submitted that this bail application is brought on behalf of mr. pistorius as a desire to the agreement between the state and the defense. the state indicated to me that they are not opposing such application mainly because of the agreement that the parties entered into. i want to make it clear that it is the duty of this court to decide whether bail should be granted or not, and also as to what conditions should be put if bail is to be granted.
the applicant handed to the court an affidavit to support his application, which affidavit sets out his personal circumstances, the history of what happened after he appeared in court for the first time until now in respect of his appearances in court. and the affidavit on page five, thereof, states that the bail is made on the basis that the application for bail is made on the basis that the bail be granted pending an application to leave for the constitutional

since the applicant attended court, he has proved that he is not a flight risk. initially the applicant was charged with an offense mentioned in schedule six, which offense, attracts a sentence of life imprisonment, and even if he was facing life imprisonment, he did come ply with the bail conditions that were put by the court. i have seriously considered part of the agreement between the defense and the state, that the applicant should not leave the
house at all should bail be granted. and further considered that is to be postponed to april of next year as it was doesed in chambers. i'm of the view that it will not be in the interest of justice that the accused or the applicant should not leave the house at all. having considered all the submissions that were made by both counsel, i made the following order. the case is postponed to the 18th of april, 2016.
applicant is released on bail of 10,000 grand, an amount of bail to be paid on or before the 11th of december, 2015, before 16 hours, and at the office of the registrar of this court. further conditions are the following. one, the accused should appear at 9:00 at this court on the postponement date, and every other date that this may be postponed to. two, that the accused submit to the house arrest and may leave

accused is further -- accused further condition is that he should not leave the district. four, the accused must hand over all his passports to the investigating officer and may not apply for a passport or travel document until the conclusion of this matter. five, the accused should submit himself to electronic monitoring to be monitored in terms of section 62 f of the criminal procedure act by mr. stoelts, the probation officer in the department of the correctional services.

displaced in a foreign country with vulnerabilities increasing. looking at group base activities that can promote resilience in children. also, for the most vulnerable children, the ones at high risk, providing specialized support through case management services. and working with the care givers and the family as a whole to make sure there's a nurturing environment for these children and ensuring that development needs are met for them in the long term. >> all of that sounds wonderful if that can happen with all of these young children. it is such a challenge. marta, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. thanks for watching cnn. i'm rosemary church. >> and oierrol barnett. we covered a lot of ground today informal early start is next. >> and for those of you not in the u.s., stay tuned for more
