fallout from the panama papers as people ask the iceland prime minister to resign. and ted cruz and john kasich are looking to stop donald trump. and an olympic set of crises in brazil, where the political scandals and the zika virus is competing for the summer games.
12:01 am
hello to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom." there's anger, apprehension and strong denial among the global elite. a massive document leak appears to reveal shell and offshore accounts for top leaders the so-called panama papers came from the mossack fonseca law firm. >> translator: we are an ally for all countries. not only our country. but all countries in the world. and we welcome any publication, any investigation, that will protect the financial systems of panama and the world, so they will not be used for illicit acts at any point. >> in all, 11.5 million
12:02 am
documents have gone public. they name 12 current or former leaders from around the world. and at least 128 other politicians and public officials a mentioned. anger over the papers has spilled into the streets in some places. this was the scene in reykjavik, iceland. huge amounts of protesters demanded that the prime minister step down after he was named in the panama papers. brian todd has more on what and who is getting exposed. >> reporter: it is the first and startling reaction to accusations of billions in secret money. >> are you accusing me? >> reporter: money held in secretive bank accounts, kept offshore by world leaders. the prime minister of iceland walking out of an interview. he's one of several world leaders responding with anger and denials of wrongdoing, to
12:03 am
allegations they hid billions of dollars in offshore accounts. the journalists and news organization, spent a year of looking through 11 million documents, leaked from a panamanian law firm, which helped set up the shell companies. >> the range of people in the data ranges from everyone from mafia figures to prime ministers and presidents. >> reporter: the reports say several friends of russian president vladimir putin operated a secret network, which moved at least $2 billion through banks and offshore companies. to be clear, the reports say putin's name is not on any of the accounts. and the kremlin has dismissed the allegation as, quote, a series of fibs, designed to attack putin. >> if he needs resources, he has access to the resources. and he has ways of directly and indirectly suggesting to his friends to give him the resources. >> reporter: one example, a concert cellist, who has been
12:04 am
friends of putin suns they were children. he made profits in the offshore companies. >> he might be a better investor than a cellist. >> reporter: he told "the guardian" he was connected to the businesses a long time ago, when russia became more open to the west late in the '80s. the accusations strechl beyond russia's borders. saudi arabia's king used a company to take out $35 million in mortgages for his london homes. there is nothing to suggest that anything the king did was illegal. >> he may be looking to offshore accounts as a safer place to hold money. >> reporter: but the perception inside his kingdom may hurt him. >> the people on the ground in these countries are likely seething as the optics are rather horrible. >> reporter: cnn tried to get response from the saudi government to reports. in riyadh and here in washington. the panamanian law firm denies
12:05 am
wrongdoing. the justice department tells cnn it's aware of the reports. it can't comment specifically about them. but it is looking into them. brian todd, cnn, washington. i'm joined, now, by a member of the opposition party in the icelandic parliament. thank you so much for being with us. you can calling for iceland's prime minister is to resign as a result of his involvement in these leaked documents. how likely is it he will be able to withstand the building pressure for him to go? >> well, we have already put forward a vote of no confidence. it will be debated tomorrow or on thursday. we are starting to think that it is quite possible that his
12:06 am
coalition party or his own members of parliament might force him to resign before it comes to that. >> what if that doesn't happen? what happens if the prime minister refuses to resign? is this likely to go away anytime soon? >> no. we have the biggest protest in our history yesterday. and we had quite a big protest since the financial collapse in 2008. yesterday, one could say that people sensed a ethical collapse, happening with the political elite. frankly, i have never witnessed as incredible masses of people coming to challenge the prime minister and the government. protests were calling for early elections. it's not just the prime minister. the finance minister who is the leader of the coalition party.
12:07 am
the independence party, who has also been in this massive leak. >> we know the prime minister walked out on an interview he was involved in. but what is your understanding of what the prime minister's involvement is exactly? and whether it's legal or illegal? >> this is the tricky part. the protests and the demands about the prime minister's resignation is not about technicalities. the nature of the tax havens is to use loopholes and do what might be legal but totally unethical. in the case of the prime minister, he was on both ends of the table when the way out for the banks were being hammered out. and he was the only person that actually, both the parliament and anybody else that was involved in figuring out a way
12:08 am
for the stake holders to actually not pull out all of iceland's assets, were being discussed. everybody will have to write a disclosure of confidence. except the prime minister. and his wife is one of the stake holders. >> and as we've been talking, we've been looking at these pictures of the protesters. how determine d are they? how well-organized are they? are they all on the same page here? >> it's hard to say. i've never seen so many people show up for protest. if you look over the crowd and the signs that people were carrying, it felt that it was a general demand that the general
12:09 am
would sign and the government would be dissolved and we'd have early elections. but like i said, i can't speak for all of these people. it was a beautiful protest. it was one of the nicest days of the year. so many people came. and the ambience of the protest was really good. i wish i could spend more time-out there with them. >> we will keep a close eye on this story developing in a number of different parts of the world. thank you so much for talking with us. we do appreciate it. >> thank you, rosemary. good-bye. to hear ted cruz tell it, wisconsin could be the turning point in the republican race for the u.s. presidency. he holds a ten-point lead over donald trump in the latest poll there's, with voters set to cast their ballots in the coming hours in the state's primaries. trump, cruz and john kasich, are
12:10 am
all campaigning for last minute votes. polls show democrat bernie sanders with a slim lead over hillary clinton in wisconsin. they've agreed to a cnn debate in brooklyn on april 14th, just five days ahead of the new york primary. wisconsin is not a must-win state for donald trump. but a loss could shift momentum in ted cruz's favor. cnn's jim acosta reports. >> reporter: donald trump knows the stakes all-too well. after a bruising week, a big "w" in wisconsin could change anything. >> i've been given the last rites how many times? like ten? every week, it's the end of trump. then, they walk in, sir, i don't know what happened. but your poll numbers went through the roof. >> reporter: while he's scrambling to catch ted cruz who is leading in wisconsin, the gop front-runner is attacking john kasich, accusing the ohio
12:11 am
governor of being nothing more than a spoiler. >> he's lost, like, 29 or 30 or 31 times. whatever the hell it is. every state and every island. he ought to get the hell out. he hurts me more than he hurts cruz. >> kasich's message for trump, don't hold your breath. >> donald trump said i need to get out of the race because i'm getting his voters. well, no. i've got news for him. i'm going to get a heck of a lot of his voters. >> reporter: trump is busy mopping up his recent messing. telling "the new york times" he made a mistake retweeting an unflattering picture of cruz's wife. he raised eyebrows when he predicted over the weekend, the country is heading towards a massive recession. a comment he tried to clean up today. >> what i said is we're going to go into a massive recession. but i also say, if i'm president, that's not going to happen because i'm going to
12:12 am
straighten things out. >> reporter: add to that, trump's furious attempts to come out on his position on abortion. >> right now, the laws are set. >> reporter: the real estate tycoon's team is lashing out against critics. one titles "digging through the bull," says america is sick of them. the attacks remind voters why they hate the washington establishment. donald trump one, washington establishment/media, zero. he is confident that cruz's stumbles are keeping him in the hunt, especially when he goes to an open gop contention. >> there's only two candidates who have met that threshold. >> reporter: cruz is trying to capitalize on his weakness against women, looking at a story that he was unfaithful to
12:13 am
his wife. >> complete nonsense. i love my wife. >> for analysis on how the race is shaping up in wisconsin, we turn to larry sabato, director of the university of virginia center for politics. thank you, sir, for being with us. we saw in jim acosta's piece that donald trump is struggling to catch up to ted cruz in wisconsin. how is trump likely to go there, do you think? and then, of course, in new york. >> well, wisconsin, has turned into a real battle for the soul of the republican party. and it is an opportunity for the anti-trump forces to prevail. it looks like trump is going to lose.
12:14 am
i'm saying that, because most of the polls, they're not completely in agreement, most of the polls say trump is going to lose. also because the key people on the ground think that wisconsin will follow their republican governor, scott walker, who was once a presidential candidate, and he has endorsed ted cruz to beat donald trump. there's little enthusiasm for cruz. it's mainly an attempt to stop trump. >> let's go big picture, here. how likely is it that trump will get the delegates needed? or do you think a contested convention is likely here? and you have to ask what role will john kasich play? he is behind in the delegate count. and cruz and trump want him out. >> take a coin and flip it. you'll have your answer about the contested convention. it is very, very close.
12:15 am
if trump does lose wisconsin and lose the lion's share of delegates there, he's going to have to make up that ground some place. now, surprisingly, he may make it up quickly because in two weeks, we have the next primary, the new york primary. and who is the premier new yorker? it's donald trump. and trump may be able to sweep the board. it will be winner-take-all, if he gets over 50%. and right now, the polls show him over 50%. wherever donald trump loses, he is going to have to make up the ground in a subsequent primary. it's clear, now, this is going to go all the way through the final set of primaries on june 7th, which includes gargantuan, california. that's where we will decide, as a country, whether this goes to a contested convention or not. >> on the other side of the political spectrum, bernie sanders is confident he will win wisconsin and new york.
12:16 am
and we want to hear what he has to say on that issue. >> the larger voter turnout, we will win here. if we win, we have a bounce going into new york state. if we win in new york state, i don't want to get hillary clinton more nervous than she already is. she is already under a lot of pressure. so, don't tell her this. i think we win here, we win in new york state, we're on our way to the white house. >> larry sabato, a very confident bernie sanders there. how is he likely to go up against hillary clinton in both those states? will he do as well as he thinks he will? >> it will be a surprise if sanders does not win wisconsin. it is a state tailor-made for him.
12:17 am
there's a large youth vote there with many college students voting. there's a strong liberal tradition and socialist tradition in wisconsin. he ought to win. and he ought to win handily. we'll see if he is right and if the polls are right. new york is another matter entirely. hillary clinton represented new york for eight years in the u.s. senate. bernie sanders, of course, is a son of brooklyn, new york. so, there you have, in essence, two new yorkers running against one another. right now, hillary clinton has the edge. most polls have her about ten points ahead. i think she will be able to win new york. >> and it is worth mentioning that sanders eventually accepted the april 14 debate date with hillary clinton, after much resistance, it has been due to scheduling issues.
12:18 am
it comes five days before the new york primary. what impact will that debate likely have? and can sanders catch up to clinton overall and give her a run for her money at the summit convention? >> you can't rule out an embarrassing gaffe by one candidate or the other. it could have an impact. we've had so many debates and town halls. i find it difficult to believe that one more will make all that much more difference. i tend to think here, it's a question of organization, and also spending. and there is an advantage for bernie sanders. he is raising more money than hillary clinton. and he is raising it in small contributions, which are renewable. he has an advantage there. i have to stress in terms of winning the nomination, hillary clinton is very, very, very likely to be the nominee. but the real question is, will she win that nomination from an enthusiastic convention? or will she have a problem reunifying the party because the sanders delegates are unwilling to join behind her? that is yet to be determined. >> yes. still a lot of unanswered questions. larry sabato, always a pleasure
12:19 am
to chat with you. thank you so much. >> thank you. let's take a quick break. still to come, the security net is thrown wide across europe, where officials are chasing down terror suspects on the lam. you are in the cnn newsroom. is better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all? neutrogena® cosmetics.

you are watching cnn newsroom. welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. i want to update you first on the stories this hour. major political figures from argentina to russia, are denying
12:30 am
any wrongdoing, in response to millions of documents leaked from a panamanian law firm. the so-called panama papers show that accounts were used by influential leaders around the world. the leader of iceland is one accused in the panama papers. he insists he is not stepping down. the papers allege a network closely affiliated with president vladimir putin. the kremlin called it a series of fibs. the first migrants to be deported in greece under the controversial new plan are now in turkey. the migrants have not applied for the asylum. in the so-called one in/one out deal, one syrian refugee will be resettled in europe for every one returned to turkey.

voters in wisconsin will begin casting their ballots in the presidential primary in just a matter of hours from now. and democrat bernie sanders is banking on a huge show of support from college students. another fact they're could swing support for sanders, a rule that allows people to register to vote on the same day of the primary. we went to the largest wisconsin university to hear what young people are saying. >> thank you, madison. [ cheers ] >> reporter: bernie sanders, turning up the heat on hillary clinton in the battle for wisconsin. ground zero for the sanders' campaign, the university of wisconsin madison, with some 43,000 potential voters. >> you only get one presidential election when you're in college. when you're an undergrad student in college.
12:32 am
this is it for us. people are pumped. >> reporter: junior jackie spate is so pumped, she is stumping for sanders on campus. she is an example of the latest poll results, showing manage democratic primary voters, eight in ten pick sanders. >> it's frustrating to me being told you're not a feminist because you're a woman and you're a bernie supporter. i would love to see the woman president. but i don't agree with hillary on everything. it's about representation versus policy and politics. >> reporter: down the hill, badgers were clinton have been showing her policy shows what she has what it takes. >> for me, it's experience. she is the most experienced in the race. some people are making big promises that it's hard to see how they will come true. we realize that real change comes through real plans. and i think hillary's the best candidate. >> being pro-choice, hillary
12:33 am
pushed legislation through when she was in the senate. bernie has had the right stance. but i don't think he's been the strongest advocate for me as hillary has been. >> reporter: young voters have a history of showing up here in bigger numbers than other states. >> eight years ago, 2008, voters 18 to 29, made up 16%, 17% of the electorate. that's a sizable chunk. you might see it a little higher than that on tuesday. >> reporter: wisconsin is 1-11 states, plus d.c., that allows for same-day registration, which tends to increase the number of youth at the polls. >> we're expecting a big turnout. when that happens, we win. >> sarah siden reporting there in michigan's primary last month. bernie sanders pulled off an upset victory over hillary clinton winning 81% of the youth vote. now, on to the panama papers. the leaked documents, that
12:34 am
appear to expose offshore shell companies used by some of the global elite. russian president vladimir putin is not mentioned in the papers. but many russians are, including a musician named sergei, a close friend of mr. putin. a russian journalist to exam the papers explains what that might mean. >> translator: asset turnover in these companies amounts to billions of dollars. the most important note is that he is a musician. our guess is that he kept it for someone else. and we suppose that he did so for the head of state. >> let's bring in cnn money europe editor, nina dos santos, who joins us live from our london studios. hey, nina. vladimir putin not named in the leaked papers. his close friends are.
12:35 am
and moscow is not happy. what's the fallout so far? and where is this all going? >> you have to remember, rosemary, that vladimir putin enjoys record popularity in russia. from london, these allegations have raised all sorts of eyebrows. let me remind you of what we're talking about. vladimir putin, 1 of 12 current heads of state, that seem to have had their names dredged up, for a massive download of documents, a panamanian law firm, whose prior mare goal, who spent years poring through some of the files, this company was largely set up to try and shield people's real identities from shell companies in offshore tax havens like the british virgin islands and places like panama in particular. we are talking about 11.5 million documents here. an one of the allegations that surrounds vladimir putin's inner
12:36 am
circle, as you rightfully point out, he is not explicitly named on any of the papers that seem to be unearthed. but his best friend, one of his oldest childhood friends, a cellist, has been named in this. he ran a company that saw about $2 billion funneled through. this includes transactions that include a state-owned bank, which may have netted another individual in particular. so far, what we've heard is the senior key opposition figure in russia is coming out and saying, quote/unquote, it's been known for some time there have been allegations of corruption surrounding mr. putin. none of this is particularly new. we should give you the kremlin's response. for some time, they have been saying, since last week, trying to preempt the allegations coming out, there was supposed to be, according to them, a media attack on the kremlin.
12:37 am
they've dismissed the allegations as mere fibs. >> so, nina, what do the leaked panama papers reveal about how some russian officials carry out their business? >> what's interesting here, rosemary, i spent yesterday working the phones speaking to poem who are legitimate tax lawyers in offshore jurisdictions. they said some of the alleged transactions of the companies, are things that they say they haven't seen for years. so, what we're talking about here is loans that were awarded, via allegedly the state-run bank, to this particular company that was fronted by mr. vladimir putin's friend, that were written off three months later. there was another example of a company that bought an asset for $1. a nominal value and then hold it for hundreds of millions afterwards. there's going to be questions here.
12:38 am
not just inside russia, but on a broader, more international scale, about these tax jurisdictions, and the murky world of offshore finance. there's one thing legitimately setting up an offshore entity, because you do business in other directions and you want to keep your tax affairs neutral, that is legal. but funneling money that comes from states, comes from international sanctions, should be subject to sanctions, from the proceeds of crime, and also not declaring the assets you have in these offshore accounts, those are all things that in many tax jurisdictions are illegal. setting up an offshore entity, perhaps having your friends front it, that's not necessarily illegal. but it depends on whether you declare that and what you use the money for. those are the questions that will be ask of many of the individuals netted in this probe. >> it's a massive leak. and the ramifications across the globe will be huge. nina dos santos, many thanks to
12:39 am
you. flash floods triggered by unusually heavy rains have killed at least 47 people in northwest pakistan and injured 37 others. disaster officials say nearly 150 homes have been damaged. one of the affected provinces has announced a relief package for victims. our meteorologist, pedram javaheri, joins us on this tragic story. and how will it be before the water disappears and people can return to some form of normal life? >> it will be a multiday, if not several week event. you think of pakistan, the country with the hindu cush mountains to the north, down to the south, the arabian sea. the water wants to flow downstream. and it will go through an area that's populated. this will be ongoing. some of the images, among the most compelling.
12:40 am
if you look at the folks that are impacted. incredible to see the flooding. and the expansionive nature of the flooding. and dangerous scenario, as the folks try to wade across the waters here. the population of pakistan, among the most populous on our planet. the sixth-most populous on our planet. and a quarter of the population lives along the indus river. so, the waters are going to make their way downstream. the flooding is going to take place. and pakistan is among the most vulnerable countries in the world when it comes to flooding and flooding fatalities. here's a number of people who are impacted every year. india has 4.8 million people that are exposed to flooding. and pakistan, in the top five of that list. sitting at three-quarts of 1 million people. here comes the front in the last couple days. the rainfall totals, 100 to 200
12:41 am
millimeters. four to eight inches of rainfall in two days. if you watch from berlin, appreciate you doing so. look at the numbers. it's one-third of the annual rainfall in berlin is what occurred in pakistan in two days. well above the monthly average. look at the bottom part of the planet. we do have two tropical cyclones that have a high probability of formation. the reason i bring this to your attention is, there is significant flooding taking place in fiji. we had cyclone winston, destructive across this region a couple of months ago. this area has picked up several hundred millimeters of rainfall. as the storms move across the region, we'll continue to bring in heavy rainfall across fiji. winston cost in losses for fiji. there's a lot of damage there in that country. this is not what they want to
12:42 am
see. >> and fiji is so small. so vulnerable, right out in the middle of the ocean. many thanks to you, pedram. appreciate it. brazil, is struggling with a number of crises at the same time. with just four months left until they host the summer olympics. we'll bring you the outlook from rio. listerine® kills 99% of bad breath germs. this is 100% useful for a 100% fresh mouth. what's it like to not feel 100% fresh? we don't know. we swish listerine®. as do listerine® users. the very people we studied in the study of bold. people who are statistically more likely to stand up to a bully. do a yoga handstand. and be in a magician's act. listerine® kills 99% of bad breath germs so you can feel 100% in life. bring out the bold™.
