11:01 pm
let's kick off the week on "cnn let's kick off the week on "cnn newsroom." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com the coast of ecuador lies in rubble. rescue teams are working around the clock searching the debris for signs of life. >> this is one of the rare images of hope we've seen in the aftermath of the earthquake. a 7-year-old girl pulled from the rubble. rafael is keeping track of the damage. >> reporter: a young girl pulled from the wreckage of a building, one of the first glimpses of rescue operations under way in ecuador. after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake tore through the coastal region saturday night. the catastrophic quake left behind a trail of destruction.
11:02 pm
>> translator: everything is completely destroyed. the majority of the buildings have fallen and there are a lot of dead. >> reporter: hundreds have been confirmed dead, making the deadlyist since 1987. >> the roads are in really bad shape. also the area is very vulnerable because of the intense rainfall that has gotten because of el ni nino. so those two factors have made it a challenging environment to work in. >> reporter: the quake's epicenter was just off the coast. a state of emergency is in effect for six provinces, spanning the majority of the country's coastline. hotels have been leveled. bridges collapsed. and families left destitute. >> translator: what am i going to do, cry, that's all. now we're on the street with nothing. >> reporter: countries around the world are offering help.
11:03 pm
>> translator: our friend countries, venezuela, mexico, colombia, peru, and the eu all offered to send rescue workers and food rations. >> reporter: so far thousands of people and military personnel have been deployed to affected areas. portable hospitals have been mobilized in the hard-hit cities. and rescue teams and helicopters continue to search for survivors. the extent of damage is only just being realized, but one thing is clear, ecuador faces a long, difficult road to recovery from this disaster. rafael romo, cnn, havana. we're joined now via skype, the director for catholic relief services in south america. thank you, sir, for talking with us. now, of course, the images are awful. the people pinned under that rubble. what is your organization doing at this point in terms of aid
11:04 pm
for the survivors? >> yes, right now, first of all, thank you for having me on. right now we're frying to figure out exactly what the needs are. right now there is a first response to the earthquake. so those images are very true. lots of rubble that need to be removed. there's still a very strong determined search and rescue effort to find live people. secondly, and thirdly, also, it's focusing a lot on looking at the next stages going forward. you know, there's a lot of different needs that are coming in, and we're trying to find out which are the priorities. >> yeah, totally understandable. what else is needed to help those who are left with nothing in the aftermath of this earthquake? what shelter is available to them and what are they getting in terms of food and clean water? >> yeah, that's exactly what we're trying to assess right now, get the numbers, understand
11:05 pm
what kind of temporary shelter they could use, tents, tarps, certain types of plastic sheeting. also looking at basic supplies. we've also heard accounts of no running water in many communities. so for us, it's getting down into the coast, into the areas that are very difficult to reach to make these assessments. >> do you have any idea the number of people who have been impacted by this at this point? or are you still trying to assess that? >> we're still trying to assess, but there is quite a bit of concern. because just over the last 24 hours, the death count has tripled. so now with it above 250, that right there seems to tell us that more research, more assessment needs to be done, because the situation could be more dire than we actually think it is. that's why we need to -- >> i mean, this is the worry, isn't it, because the witnesses there, so many people, their family members are trapped under a lot of that debris.
11:06 pm
what are you seeing in terms of the heavy lifting equipment that's able to move some of that big slabs of concrete in some instances? >> you know, unfortunately a lot of that equipment is not frequent. so we're looking at trying to work with the government to help them address these needs. you know, look at the first response and then move into other areas such as help with water, looking at shelter. also looking at food, other elements, supplies, materials, maybe kitchen equipment. so we're looking at it very holistically. a lot of the needs stem from this area of being one of the poorest in ecuador. and that's really the situation where you have people that are struggling daily as it is, then on top of that, over the last several months, this area has been hammered by el nino.
11:07 pm
and that has led to landslides, mudslides, and flooding, just over the past couple of months. now on top of all this, the third whammy is an earthquake. it's a very precarious situation. >> so many challenges ahead. and of course, time is of the essence at this point to get as many people from under that rubble. and they have to move swiftly. there is no doubt about that. thomas hollywood, thank you so much for explaining what the major challenges are ahead. thank you. >> thank you very much. coincidentally, the devastation in ecuador follows two deadly earthquakes in southern japan. at least 42 people were killed and more than 1,000 injured. emergency crews are still looking for those missing. possibly trapped under the rubble. >> disaster officials say about 180,000 people have been evacuated into more than 800 shelters. widespread power and water
11:08 pm
outages have also been reported. >> matt is in a village, one of the hardest hit areas in japan. as you see on your screens, he joins us now live. matt, earlier rescue workers were trying to get out two people known to be trapped where you are in this area. any update on them? >> reporter: well, on these two people who are trapped behind me, unfortunately no updates at this point. rescue workers continue their heroic work here. we've seen shift after shift go in with shovels, dry when they go in and caked with mud when they come out. so unfortunately no progress here. but we can confirm another set of two people somewhere in this village not far from where we are right now, officials tell us that they found two people alive. we don't know any information about the people, their ages or anything like that, but that was some good news. definitely welcome news for these rescue workers who have been spending hour after hour
11:09 pm
after hour since this earthquake hit, trying to find that exact thing, survivors. unfortunately, that hasn't happened here yet behind us. but people here are still hopeful, errol. >> and matt, others, as you mentioned, are also missing. all of these rescue efforts are slow, but meticulous. the danger, though, is that there may be additional smaller quakes and aftershocks. and of course, the landslides, like the one that hit behind you, must be a persistent concern for officials. >> reporter: absolutely. let me show you the track of the landslide, this particular particular landslide here. if i step out of the way, you can see it started at the top. this is a very, very steep mountain slope here. and it came all the way down to where you can see those rescue workers are congregated right now. we spoke to their commander and asked them about the threat of aftershocks, and he said that they have people who are monitoring seismic activity who
11:10 pm
say they will be able to hopefully provide at least a few seconds' warning if we expect a very large aftershock. frankly, like we felt yesterday during the day. but that's really the best they can do. frankly, these men back here are putting themselves in harm's way in order to try and find the two people that are still missing somewhere behind me. >> 3:10 there in the afternoon, one of the hardest hit areas on that river, watching the rescue efforts continue. we'll connect with you hours ahead. for our viewers, if you would like to help victims of the earthquakes, head to our special website at impact your world. find links to organizations that are working right now to help all of the victims. just head to cnn.com/impact. >> we turn now to another big story we are watching brazilian president, fighting for her political life. lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to impeach her for allegedly
11:11 pm
manipulating government accounts to hide a budget deficit. her popularity has plummeted in the face of widespread corruption scandals. >> but she insists the impeachment vote is a conspiracy to force her from office. shasta darlington has more. >> reporter: historic vote and a crushing defeat for president rousseff. brazil's lower house of congress has voted to impeach here. the opposition achieved the majority 342 votes, even before the session was over. now the impeachment motion will be sent to the senate where a simple majority would be needed to launch the impeachment trial. and the president would be forced to step down to defend herself. it was a night full of tension, both inside the congress where lawmakers were shouting each other down and outside. outside of congress, security
11:12 pm
was tight, with a huge barricade set up between anti-government protesters and pro-government protesters. on the one hand, people who blame the president for a prolonged recession, and really a corruption scandal that engulfed dozens of politicians. on the other hand, her supporters who feel this whole impeachment procedure is no more than a coup d'etat, an attempt to bring down a democratically elected leader on a technicality, for being impeached for breaking budgetary laws. at the end of the night, the opposition was victorious, but many questions remain, starting with what's going to happen to brazil in the days and weeks coming next. shasta darlington, cnn, brazil yeah. we'll take a short break here. still to come in u.s. politics, the republican front-runner is taking aim at his democratic rival. hillary clinton's reaction to donald trump's new attacks.
11:13 pm
and campaign funding comes under fire. what the famous host of a pricey fund-raiser has to say after this short break. yeah, i was just talking uhabout yourico?... emergency roadside service and how it's available 24/7 and then our car overheated... what are the chances? can you send a tow truck please? uh, the location? you're not going to believe this but it's um... it's in a tree. i wish i was joking, mate, but it's literally stuck in a tree. (car horn honking) a chainsaw? no, no, all we really need is a tow truck. day or night, geico's emergency roadside service is there for you.

11:17 pm
with just a day to go before new york's delegate-rich primary, democrat bernie sanders is taking sharp aim at front-runner hillary clinton. >> thousands of people attended a rally on sunday where he criticized the source of clinton's campaign funding. listen. >> you cannot have a super pac raise many millions of dollars from wall street or special interests and then tet the american people with a straight face that you're going to stand up to the big money interests. not true. >> sanders says the amount of money in politics is moving the country away from democracy. his supporters protested outside
11:18 pm
a high-priced fund-raiser this weekend. clooney agrees with sanders' point. >> they're right to protest. the sanders campaign when they talk about it is absolutely right. it's ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics. i agree. >> the republican front-runner is echoing sanders' attack on clinton's campaign funding. clinton is brushing it off. >> and then, of course, we hf crooked hillary. crooked hillary, folks. she's been crooked from the beginning. and to think that she has a shot at being our president, crooked hillary clinton. we can't let it happen. >> i don't respond to donald trump and his string of insults about me. i can take care of myself. i look forward to running
11:19 pm
against him if he turns out to be the republican nominee, if i am the democratic nominee. what i'm concerned about is how he goes after everybody else. he goes after women. he goes after muslims. he goes after immigrants. he goes after people with disabilities. he is hurting our unity at home. he's undermining the values that we stand for in new york. and across america. and he's hurting us around the world. he can say whatever he wants to say about me. i really could care less. >> after rival ted cruz's win in wyoming, trump is intensifying his complaint about the delegate selection process. chris has the details. >> reporter: donald trump firing up his fellow new yorkers ahead of the crucial primary here on tuesday after what was not a great weekend for donald trump. he lost to ted cruz in wyoming. losing all 14 of those delegates at a state convention there, similar to what happened to him in colorado where he lost to ted cruz about a week or so ago at the state convention there.
11:20 pm
donald trump saying the state conventions are rigged, not primaries or caucuses where the voters go to vote and calling the big bosses out. >> we have a system that's rigged. we have a system that's crooked. we have a system that has a lot of problems and doesn't allow people to vote in many cases. and if they do vote, their vote isn't really representative of what it should be. we have this delegate system which is a sham. so in colorado, the people are going crazy out there, because they never got a chance to vote. >> the republican national committee firing backs and saying the candidates have known the rules for months. it is the same process they nominated abraham lincoln in 1860. but ted cruz using his victory in wyoming to take a little poke at donald trump, tweeting on sunday, quote, donald, over 1.3 million people just voted in
11:21 pm
these states and you lost by huge margins. no whining. so ted cruz taking a little bit of a victory lap after his big win in wyoming on saturday. and he better enjoy it if you believe the polls because donald trump winning by double digits here in new york. a recent "wall street journal" poll showing he had 54% support. ted cruz, on the other hand, had just 16%. so it's a tough slide for him. donald trump looking to take all 95 delegates here on tuesday. if he can win by 50% statewide, he could go a long way toward getting to the magic number of 1,237. ted cruz and john kasich trying to stop him, of course. >> now, we need to tell you that donald trump is a controversial figure, both in the u.s. and overseas. >> yeah, he's even been praised by russian president vladimir putin. but he's not so popular in pyongyang. a senior north korean official gave a rare exclusive interview
11:22 pm
to cnn's will ripley and spoke about the republican front-runner. >> it seems even officials here in north korea are taken aback by some of the rhetoric on the campaign trail in the united states. specifically the comments by donald trump that japan and south korea could arm themselves with nuclear weapons, that one official in pyongyang said is absurd and illogical, but also dangerous. few north korean officials understand american politics like the long-time diplomat and former ambassador, deputy director general of international studies. pyongyang think tank monitors global events and reports back to north korean leadership. we're not really interested in the u.s. election, he says. we don't care who becomes the next u.s. president. whether republicans or democrats take power, it has nothing to do with us. u.s. politicians have always had a hostile policy against north korea. state media doesn't cover
11:23 pm
details of the u.s. presidential campaign. the average person wouldn't even recognize any of the candidates. in recent months each has spoken out against north korea's nuclear and missile programs. republican front-runner donald trump shocked american allies in asia when he suggested japan and south korea could arm themselves with nuclear weapons. >> nobody has them. so north korea has nukes. japan has a problem with that. they have a big problem with it. maybe they would in fact be better off if they defend themselves from north korea. including with nukes. >> what is north korea's response? >> donald trump's remarks are totally absurd and illogical, he says. the u.s. tells us to give up our nuclear program. he would tell its allies to have nuclear weapons? isn't this a double standard? pyongyang has not officially responded to trump's remarks. north korean propaganda attempted political satire,
11:24 pm
adopting the voice of abraham lincoln, scolding president obama. even in a country known for rhetoric, he believes trump's ideology is dangerous. trump's remarks give us a deeper look at america's hostile policy against my country, he says. america's hostile acts against us are making the situation on the korean peninsula worse. he warns a policy like trump's would only escalate north korea's nuclear arms race. the country may be preparing for yet another nuclear test ahead of a major political gathering next month where kim jong-un could gain even more power by restructuring his party leadership. last year pyongyang reached out to washington proposing peace talks. but that request was rejected when pyongyang refused to take its nuclear program off the table saying even if a deal was reached, they'll continue to develop their military arsenal.
11:25 pm
australian media report johnny depp hats pleaded guilty to file a false immigration document after the couple was accused of sneaking their two dogs into australia last may. >> this made huge headlines. two other charges have reportedly been dropped. hurd apologized in a video played in court in which she and depp talked about the country's biosecurity law. take a look. >> australia's a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people. >> it has to be protected. >> australia is free of many diseases. that's why australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws. >> it's unique, both warm and direct. when you disrespect australian law, they will tell you firmly. >> i'm truly sorry that they were not declared. protecting australia is important.
11:26 pm
>> declare everything when you enter australia. >> hard to take it seriously. >> depp was not charged over the incident. this became a huge deal. >> yes. >> because the australian government made it a point to say, get your dogs out of here or they'll be euthanized. >> australia takes this very serious. they have to be very careful about the animals coming in. generally they have to be quarantined for a number of months before they're actually then believed. >> this will be the last time i think. >> i think they've learned their lesson. it means the two harsher charge have been dropped. >> that's right. we'll be speaking live to a reporter out of australia next hour as well to get the reaction on this story. oil prices have plunged after top oil countries failed to agree on production. >> why the deal apparently fell through. that's still to come. zulu-6-9er...

11:30 pm
a warm welcome back. you are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. let's update you on our top stories. massive street demonstrations broke out in brazil's capital as they voted to impeach the president, accused of hiding a budget deficit to win reelection in 2014. now the senate will decide whether to take her case to trial. a powerful earthquake on the coast of ecuador has now killed 272 people. the death toll has been steadily rising since the quake hit late saturday. response teams are working desperately to rescue any survivors buried in the debris. at least 42 people have been killed in two earth cakes in japan. officials fear others are still trapped in the wreckage of crumbled buildings. the quakes struck thursday and
11:31 pm
saturday. many aftershocks have since followed. more than 1,000 people are injured, and about 180,000 have fled their homes. on the first trading day after the most recent earthquake, japan's nikkei index has fallen considerably, more than 3% there. we'll keep an eye on the numbers. the weather could have a significant impact on rescue and recovery efforts in both ecuador and japan. we turn to our meteorologist who joins uses now. pedram, the critical thinking is the time it would take to try to get some of those survivors who are under the debris out. it is a race against time. >> it is. you know, the one good piece of news here is the temperatures in the spring season in this part of the world are beginning to moderate a little bit. but the rain showers certainly are not moderating. this will be a multi-day event before any major recovery is taken care of. look at what's happening. temps right around 16 degrees celsius. about 60 degrees fahrenheit. the winds are calm. the clouds are in place. we have a front brushing by this
11:32 pm
region, bringing in rain showers and will be quickly exiting the picture. we'll be going through a pattern of generally sunny skies are expected across japan. wonderful news as far as recovery efforts are concerned. notice the temperatures cooling off to the lower 70s by thursday. 100% chance they'll get more rain showers thursday afternoon. we do go back into a wetter period over the next couple of days. incredible 167 aftershocks. you look at all of these clustered around the main foreshock. destabilizing the surrounding. bring the rain showers down on top of this, not a good place to be over the past couple of days over this region. the 7.8 that took place just 48 hours later on the other side of the world, across portions of coastal ecuador. the depth at around 20 kilometers deep in the northern portion of ecuador.
11:33 pm
this particular quake, statistically speaking, you should have one order of magnitude aftershock take place. that would be a 6.8 from the initial 7.8. that has not happened yet. that's what people are waiting for eventually. 0.8, you would have ten quakes of that nature. we've had the largest aftershock at a 5.4. a lot of people have been asking, is this in any way related? yeah, usgs will tell you there's no direct relation. people on air say it's akin to a tree falling in canada to a cactus falling in new mexico. one in alaska in january, one in russia, one in indonesia. up until last thursday we only had three major quakes, by the way. we had one on thursday, one on saturday in ecuador. the global average for these sort of quakes is 15 per year.
11:34 pm
so you do the math. you should have five through the first four months of the year, up until last week we were actually below normal. all within the statistical norm of getting the number of quakes that you see for this magnitude on a global scale. it's essentially like flipping a coin. sometimes you get several tails in a row or several heads in a row. in this particular case, this happened in populated areas, back-to-back. that is what a lot of people are now taking note of. >> we can expect a few more aftershocks in some of these places? >> yes. for ecuador, fortunately and unfortunately, the larger aftershock of 6.8 is expected. so something they're aware of. >> thaw, pedram. we'll get you more information now on the impeachment vote against brazilian president rousseff. she's had extreme highs to lows. she went from a prison cell essentially to the presidential office. maggie lake has more on her
11:35 pm
dramatic rise and her fight to stay in power. >> reporter: the size and scope of the protests are unprecedented. hundreds of thousands of brazilians are taking to the streets demanding the resignation of rousseff. >> brazilians have no confidence in their government. domestic sentiment is through the floor. the market wants to see her gone. that's what the market is pricing in. we've seen a tremendous rally in brazil over the past month, precisely based on that. >> reporter: it is a tragic reversal of fortune with rousseff in prison a decade ago. it can be tied directly to the former president. he hand-picked her to become his
11:36 pm
successor, making her the country's first female president. >> it's clear that what he saw a possibility of being a continuity of his government. people said, well, that's the woman loula is seeing continue his government. it was simply like that. >> reporter: in 2014, dillma was reelected in a hotly contested race, but soon her fortunes changed. china was growing in double digits, commodity boom was still in force. and then the commodity boom burst and brazil slowed down. >> reporter: rousseff has not been charged with corruption but was head of the oil joint when wrongdoing is said to have taken place. dilma said she's innocent. brazilians are not convinced. >> translator: i think she should throw in the towel.
11:37 pm
this government has been disastrous. >> translator: the future of our country is in god's hands at this point. >> reporter: she's accused of trying to manipulate the state budget to hide deficits. as impeachment proceedings move forward and her approval ratings fall below 10%, she refuses to step down. >> translator: impeachment without proof of a crime of responsibility is, what, it is a coup? >> i suspect that dilma for political survival will fight this tooth and nail. which would be the worst case for the country. >> reporter: a tough as nails warrior for her country is now facing the political fight of her life. with struggling brazilians caught in the middle. maggie lake, cnn money, new york. oil prices remain low. in fact, they are down after the world's top oil producers failed to agree on a plan to freeze production.
11:38 pm
sunday's negotiations in qatar were aimed at boosting oil prices. >> the deal apparently fell apart after saudi arabia demanded that iran also agree to a freeze. which iran has refused to do. cnn's money emerging market editor joins us live from doha with the latest. john, let's start with market reaction. why do you think it has been so severe? >> reporter: well, the big producers, rosemary, rode the wave higher on the discussion of a freeze which started two months ago. we went from a low of $27 a barrel to a peak of $46 for the international benchmark. now that they could not build a consensus, that wave is crashing down rather dramatically. and as you suggest here, which should have been a fairly simple process of bringing 18 players to doha around one table to reach a consensus, basically saying we'll freeze production where it is, ended up to be
11:39 pm
about 12 hours of intense debate, and it failed. let's take a listen. >> we debated the freeze from all aspects, and what could that result. and the meeting concluded that we all need time for further consultation. >> reporter: you can call this, rosemary, a self-inflicted wound by the qataris and other members around the table. they said they didn't need to bring that many players here. but it failed on the language of what is a reasonable level at which to freeze. the iranians don't come in now,
11:40 pm
would they come in in six months after the sanctions here, get to 4 million barrels a day. candidly, this is a position that was kind of ruined by saudi arabia. the deputy crown prince who is now the chair of the supreme petroleum council there, 48 hours before the meeting started, said iran had to be part of the deal. iran in fact wasn't invited to doha, because it said it could not sign on to a freeze after a period of the sanctions. what do we have here? the next opec meeting is in june. the market was expecting a consensus. and this basically is going to allow about two months to see if they can bring those non-opec players like russia back to the table to see if they can freeze in the second half of the year to try to rebalance the market. it's going to be punishing for them as the market goes down, trying to hold on to $40 a barrel. >> it's going to be interesting to see what happens in the coming weeks and months. and of course, there will be a lot of people driving their cars who are very happy with the outcome so far. john is joining there live from

the cnn freedom project is shining a light on human trafficking, with a goal to end modern-day slavery. >> we are learning of girls in
11:45 pm
vietnam who are tricked into crossing the border with china, and then forced into marriage. >> for more on this, we're joined now from hong kong. and alexander, i understand you were able to speak with women who actually escaped from this type of trafficking. how were they taken in the first place? >> reporter: well, errol, this is something that's happening to girls as young as 13 years old, if you can believe that. and all of the women, the girls we spoke to said that they had never even heard of trafficking before they were taken. they had no idea that other girls like them were being brought over the border, sold as brides, forced to work in brothels or forced into hard labor. they tell us that they didn't try to resist their traffickers because they didn't know what was happening to them until it was too late. crossing the border separating china and vietnam can be as easy as this. as soon as we reached the river, we see people paddling between
11:46 pm

bride in china? >> for the end buyer, we've been told that the prices have been $3,000. >> reporter: girls in vietnam's ethnic minority groups are common targets. she said that's because they share cultural similarities with chinese men on the other side of this border, who struggle to find chinese wives. >> the one-child policy that has favored sons in general, right? and over time, this is such a way that they need more and more women. >> reporter: we're not identifying the women we spoke to, to protect them from retaliation. they don't know how much money they were sold for. but they say they were forced into labor. threatened with working brothels, and that their husbands got money back guarantees. >> translator: they said if i didn't agree to get married, they would beat me and kill me. i had to go. >> reporter: today she was in a shelter with women who fought to find a way out, even at the cost
11:48 pm
of leaving children behind. what would you say to your daughter if you were able to say something? >> translator: i would apologize for leaving her there. i hope she'll have a better life there. >> reporter: her baby was 5 months old when she made a daring escape, after two years in china she said she and another bride finally found an opportunity to take a taxi to a police station. what were you most afraid of in the time that you were being kept there? >> translator: that they would sell me to a brothel and i could never come home. >> reporter: those who did come home want to spread the word. >> for us, the most important thing is to do this, to make sure people don't cross the border. >> reporter: the survivors return now to the same places traffickers target, to try and warn unsuspecting girls. officials in vietnam tell us last year 109 girls who were trafficked into china made their way back to vietnam.
11:49 pm
but they do say there are some women who are likely able to return who are self-rescuing, making their way back over the border, but never reporting to officials that they've been victims of trafficking. that's because of the shame associated with it. which is why some of the girls and women who we spoke to at the shelter tell us they're getting the support they need to talk about what they need to get to, and tell others about what trafficking is, how it can happen, even when you have no idea that you could be a target, errol. >> it's very eye-opening to hear her story. the heartbreaking story of breaking free, but having to give up her child. and this type of thing happens every day in some of the world's biggest cities. and as you mentioned, it may be actually a bigger problem than we realize. but thanks for bringing it to our attention. alexandria field live in hong kong. we appreciate your report. >> you are watching "cnn newsroom." we'll be right back after this. honey, did you call the insurance company?

11:54 pm
possible mid-air collision over the weekend. >> reporter: the incident happened right here in london at heathrow airport. apparently this was a british airways flight coming from geneva and it was shortly before its landing. the pilot of the flight apparently said that as he was coming in at a very low level, that all of a sudden an object hit the front of the plane. he says he believes that it was a drone that hit the aircraft, and the police here in london also say they believe that it could very well indeed have been a drone. there was a statement that british airways put forward. i'm going to quote from that. it says, detectives are investigating after an object hit the front of the passenger plane as it approached heathrow's terminal 5 around 12:30 p.m. after this happened, this airplane was checked out by technicians on the ground, and they deemed the aircraft safe to fly, and it was apparently used afterwards in flights. all of this, of course, is
11:55 pm
causing great concern among pilots here in britain. the british airline pilots association has come out and said it was only a matter of time before something like this happened. they believe that there should be more strict rules for flying aircraft near airports, and also the rules that are in place should be enforced more strictly than they have in the past. at this point in time, what we're hearing from the authorities here in london is they say their investigation is ongoing. but so far, no one has been taken into custody. cnn, london. on a lighter note, the vote's in and the people have spoken. they want a prestigious ship to bear the name boaty mcboatface. >> the environment research council opened an online poll to name the vessel which is a great idea, right? well, they allowed users suggestions and boaty mcboatface

12:01 am
>> and i'm errol barnett. thanks for joining us as we kick off our encore hour of "cnn newsroom". the death toll in ecuador has climbed to 272 now from saturday's 7.8 magnitude earthquake. rescue teams are still scrambling to keep that number as low as they can but time is working against them. >> still, we have seen some rare glimmers of hope like this image of a 7-year-old girl pulled from the rubble in one of the worst-hit areas. many parts of the country are barely recognizable from a few days ago, riddled with debris. our rafael romo looks at the damage. >> reporter: a young girl pulled from the wreckage of a building, one of the first glimpses of rescue operations under way in ecuador. after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake tore through the country's coastal region saturday night. the catastrophic quake left
12:02 am
behind a trail of destruction. >> translator: everything is completely destroyed. the majority of the buildings have fallen, and there are a lot of dead. >> reporter: hundreds have been confirmed dead, making the quake the deadliest to hit the small south american nation since 1987 and the most vulnerable are the hardest to reach. >> the roads are in really bad shape. and then also the area is very vulnerable because of the intense rainfall that it's gotten because of el nino. so those two factors have made it a challenging environment to work in. >> reporter: the quake's epicenter was just off ecuador's coast, south of muisne in esmeraldas province. a state of emergency is in effect for six provinces, spanning the majority of the country's coastline. hotels have been leveled. bridges collapsed. and families left destitute. >> translator: my house like this. what am i going to do? cry. that's all. now we are on the street with nothing. >> reporter: countries around
12:03 am
the world are offering help. >> translator: our friend countries venezuela, mexico, colombia, peru, spain, and the eu, have all offered to spend rescue workers with specialized tools and food rations needed for this type of situation. >> reporter: so far thousands of police and military personnel have been deployed to affected areas. portable hospitals have been mobilized in the hard-hit cities of pedernales and porto viejo. and rescuers and helicopters keep searching for survivors. the extent of damages is only just being realized but one thing is clear. ecuador faces a lot difficult road to recovery from this disaster. >> steven joins us from geek yooe guayaquil. he was at the mall when the earthquake happened. tell us what you felt and saw as this all happened around you. >> hello.
12:04 am
it was very frightening, actually. i was with my family at the shopping mall, as you said, and things started to move. we thought it was going to be a regular earthquake, something smaller. but then things just kept going and going and going and we started to realize that it was going to be -- it was going to be bigger. so at that moment we were actually terrified. people started screaming. they were leaving the mall. actually started running out of the mall. some people went below the tables to protect themselves from things that were falling at that time. >> it's been roughly 24 hours since this quake struck. that has just been enough time to assess the damage, the massive amount of devastation. hundreds of people have been kill killed. thousands are injured. what has the past day been like for you as far as seeing emergency responders and having access to help that you and others around you may need? >> actually, i was able to help
12:05 am
today. people started to convoke themselves on twitter and start to make donations and organize themselves. food, water, mattresses, blankets, clothes. and they're starting to take that to the cities that were more affected by this quake. right now everybody's trying to organize themselves. as you said, just 24 hours ago. so it's very recent yet. but authorities trying to help as well. and we're trying to see what happens in the cities that were more affected in other provinces in manabi, actually. >> you were very fortunate, actually. we understand some towns, some locations have been obliterated by this quake, and there have been a number of aftershocks, these subsequent earthquakes which just adds to the trauma of
12:06 am
all of those who have been through this disaster. we know that 10,000 soldiers have been deployed, more than 4,600 police officers. are things secure where you are? is there a sense that the government and the country has a control, a handle on this? >> yes. we saw that there were -- deploying all these officers. i've seen images on twitter. actually, when i was helping as a volunteer today with donations i could see police officers being deployed and fortunately here in guayaquil damage is not so great. there are some buildings that have collapsed, especially houses downtown, some bridges as well. but the damage is bigger in cities nearby than guayaquil, actually. >> well thanksfully, you are safe and your area was not hit as hard. certainly our hearts go out to those who've lost their loved ones and are still dealing with
12:07 am
injuries and in some areas still desperate to get out. i appreciate with you speaking with us. steven luziriaga in guayaquil. thanks for your time. >> thank you. i appreciate it. the devastation in ecuador follows two deadly earthquakes in southern japan. at least 42 people were killed, more than 1,000 injured. some areas have had dozens of aftershocks. and they're not letting up. slowing rescue efforts and causing more anxiety. and japan's meteorological agency warns more buildings could still collapse. now, disaster officials say about 180,000 people have been evacuated into more than 800 shelters. cnn's matt rivers has more from minami-aso village, one of the hardest-hit areas in japan. >> reporter: we are in the mountainous village of mina minami-aso, just outside of where we've been the last couple of days. it's a touristy town. people come up here because there's hot springs and there are spas and apparently that
12:08 am
building behind me used to be a spa. it was on saturday that the earthsquake here triggered a landslide, and you can see over my right shoulder there the landslide came down the mountain and it took out this building right behind me. now, officials say that there were two people inside a guest house at this spa when the landslide occurred and they are now trapped. so the operation you're seeing behind me involved dozens of members of both the japanese self-defense force as well as policemen who are trying their best to go through this very dense, heavy mud that came down with this landslide and try and free those people-two people that are trapped inside. >> translator: we are searching for survivors. my team is exhausted. but we're determined to find them. we'll continue to search until we find them in whatever state. >> reporter: but this isn't the only scene in this village. there are several other places where people are also trapped. so there are operations just like this one being conducted across this area to try and free
12:09 am
those people. but in any situation like this the survival window only lasts so long. it's been over two days now since the earthquake that triggered these landslides on saturday. and with every passing hour the chances of finding people alive inside of scenes like this becomes that much less. >> and our thanks to matt rivers for that report. some big businesses in japan are suspended production after the earthquakes. honda released this statement -- "honda would like to express its deepest sympathy and condolences to the victims of the 2013 kumamoto earthquake. due to this earthquake, honda will halt operations at its kumamoto factory until april 22nd." >> and if you'd like to help the victims of either of the earthquakes that we've been telling you about, just head to our special website. we call it impact your world. you can find links to reputable organization that's have already

12:11 am
lawmakers were shouting each other down, and outside -- ] yelling ] outside of congress security was tight with a huge barricade set up between anti-government protesters and pro-government protesters. on the one hand, people who blame the president for a prolonged presession and really a corruption scandal that engulfed dozens of politicians. on the other hand, her supporters, who feel that this whole impeachment procedure is nothing more than a coup d'etat, an attempt to bring down a democratically elected leader on a technicality, and that's because she's being impeached for breaking budgetary laws. at the end of the night the opposition was victorious, but many questions remain, starting with what's going to happen to brazil in the days and weeks coming next. shasta darlington, cnn, brasilia. >> and when you think about it, dilma rousseff went from
12:12 am
essentially a prison cell to a presidential office. cnnmoney's maggie lake has more on her dramatic rise and her fight to stay in power. >> reporter: the size and scope of the protests are unprecedent ed. hundreds of thousands of brazilians are taking to the streets, demanding the resignation of dilma rousseff. a once popular president brought down by scandal, recession, and a fear that her country is spiraling out of control. >> brazilians have no confidence in their government. domestic sentiment is through the floor. the market wants to see dilma gone. that's what the market is pricing in. we've seen a tremendous rally in brazil over the past month precisely based on that. >> reporter: it's a tragic reversal of fortune for rousseff, who was imprison eed decades ago while fighting to overthrow brazil's military dictatorship. her path to the presidency can
12:13 am
be tied directly to former president and mentor bruno da silva. he handpicked her to become his successor, becoming the country's first -- >> she saw being a continuation of his government. people said that's the woman lula is saying will continue his government. i will vote for her. it was simply like that. ♪ >> reporter: in 2014 dilma was re-elected in a hotly contested race, but soon her fortunes changed. >> lula had great luck. china was growing in double digits. commodity boom was still in force. and then dilma comes in and the commodity boom burst and brazil slowed down tremendously. >> reporter: and then the petrobras scandal hit. rousseff has not been charged with corruption, but she was head of the oil giant when wrongdoing is said to have taken place. rousseff says she's innocent. brazilians are not convinced.
12:14 am
>> translator: i think she should throw in the towel. this government has been really disastrous. >> translator: the future of our country is in god's hands at this point. things are very precarious at the moment. >> translator: dilma is accused of trying to manipulate the state budget to hide deficits. and her attempt to appoint lula as chief of staff is highly unpopular. but as impaecht proceedings move forward and her approval ratings fall below 10%, rousseff refuses to step down. >> translator: impeachment without proof of a crime of responsibility is what? it is a coup. >> i suspect that dilma for political survival will face this tooth and nail till the last day, which would be the worst case for the country. >> reporter: a tough as nails warrior for her country is now face the political fight of her life. with struggling brazilians caught in the middle. maggie lake, cnn money, new york. and this just in to cnn.
12:15 am
u.s. defense secretary ash carter has arrived in baghdad on an unannounced video. he's there for talks with iraqi officials on the war against isis. >> now, the u.s. has been leading an international coalition to fight the terror group, as you well know. and the iraqi army has recently made some strategic gains. an official traveling with carter said that he hopes to bring more aggressive resources into the country. we'll take a short break here. but still to come, oil prices have plunged after top oil countries failed to agree on future production levels. more on why the deal apparently fell through. that's still to come. >> plus the wife of actor johnny depp is apologizing after the couple was accused of smuggling their two dogs into australia. we'll tell you why such charges are taken so seriously down under. back after this. wiback like it could used to? neutrogena hydro boost water gel. with hyaluronic acid

oil prices are down after the world's top oil producers failed to agree on a plan to freeze production. sunday's negotiations in qatar were aimed at boosting historically low oil prices. >> but the deal apparently fell apart after saudi arabia
12:20 am
demanded that iran also agree to a freeze, which iran has refused to do. cnn money emerging markets editor john defterios joins us now from the qatari capital doha with the very latest on this. so john, how did this all play out? why did it all unravel in the way it did? >> reporter: well, in fact, rosemary, this was supposed to be a three-hour meeting and it turned out to be four times that level. 12 hours of talks taking place here. they wanted this to be a sign of unity to the global market community. and in fact, it tore down because of the language being put in to include iran into the package. now, where it got complicated is that iran was not invited to come to doha because it said all along it could not be party to an agreement on a freeze after four years of sanctions. it wants to get to at least 4 million barrels a day, and it's about 700,000 barrels shy of that in terms of overall production. 48 hours before the meeting the deputy crown prince of saudi
12:21 am
arabia who also chairs the supreme petroleum council insisted that all the opec members sign on. iranian sources told me, said they could not have this imposed on them at this stage. this is not a reasonable level of just over 3 million barrels a day. so what we have now, rosemary, is market disappointment. they were trying to come in with a deal to say we're going to do our part to stabilize the market. and now we have about two months before the next opec meeting to see if they can bring the non-opec players like russia and the 13 members of opec including iran around the table again and say what's the strategy for the second half of 2016? we see the market's down about 4% to $41 a barrel. with this freeze that was in place for the last two months we had to ride up to $46 a barrel. it could be pretty punishing for the oil producers going forward if the market thinks there is no unity going forward. >> yeah, and john, you mentioned the oil market being lower. why such a severe reaction?
12:22 am
>> well, they rode the momentum since mid february when you had four producers come together and the market was encouraged because it was saudi arabia and russia. the two largest producers in the world. sitting side by side saying we needed to do something. but there seems to be a change of strategy here. the deputy crown prince of saudi arabia maybe thinks that the market's recovered too quickly and they want to wash out some of that other more expensive oil production, the u.s. shale production or the deep water production we see in the gulf of mexico and other parts of africa. so there's no clarity coming out of the meeting. the other thing is, rosemary, there's overproduction in the market about 1 1/2 million barrels a day. that's supposed to neutralize in the second half of the year. but are the major producers doing their part or are they going to try to add more production outside of iran going forward? will they continue to compete, which could push prices lower? 41's not bad considering we hit 27 back in january. but many producers are suffering, saying they wanted a higher price.
12:23 am
>> so many questions. we know you'll be keeping an eye on this. john defterios joining us live from doha as always. many thanks. australian media report the wife of actor johnny depp has pleaded guilty to providing a false immigration document after the couple was accused of sneaking their two dogs into australia last may. >> two other charges against amber heard have reportedly been dropped. heard apologized in a video played there in the courtroom in which she and depp talked about the country's biosecurity law. take a look. >> australia's a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals, and people. >> it has to be protected. >> australia is free of many pests and diseases that are commonplace around the world. that is why australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws. >> and australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. when you disrespect australian law, they will tell you firmly. >> i'm truly sorry that pistol
12:24 am
and boo were not declared. protecting australia is important. >> declare everything when you enter australia. >> a very serious apology there. for the latest on the case, johanna marie from our cnn affiliate sky news australia joins us now from gold coast, australia. and johanna, the maximum penalty would have been a fine of what, 10,000 australian dollars or roughly 7 1/2 u.s. dollars. thousand. plus a decade in prison. in the end, though, this couple got away with a much smaller charge. just walk us through what happened and how significant that video was in the outcome. >> reporter: well, amber heard and johnny depp came to court this morning in the gold coast and actually struck a deal with australian authorities. ms. heard agreed to plead guilty to one charge of falsifying a document which was her arrival card when she came to australia. she admitted in court that she
12:25 am
brought the dogs here in april last year to visit johnny depp while he was filming the "pirates of the caribbean" movie. she did say, however, that she thought a staff member had applied for the dogs to come to australia with her, so it was all a misunderstanding. johnny depp and his wife, of course, filmed that video and played it to the court. it was an apology and also propped up the australian biosecurity laws. in a bit of a promotional sense. and it has been accepted, of course. that apology has been accepted by the federal authorities and also the australian government. so yeah, they were handed a fairly light sentence in the end. amber heard being given a one-month good behavior bond and no conviction recorded. >> and last hour, when i first saw that video, i had to chuckle because johnny depp seems so serious and so does amber. this case has been major news
12:26 am
there in australia. but in the end it was about a violation for not filling out a customs form properly. how have australians watched this story and has there been any response from the government yet to the outcome? >> reporter: yes, we've had a response from the government this afternoon saying that the apology has been accepted and they're very happy that amber heard has corrected her wrongs and admitted to wrongly filling out that incoming passenger card when she came to australia last year. australians, though, we kind of think let's get on with it now. she's pleaded guilty and says she's very sorry about what happened. even the magistrate says it's time for us to move on. so that's the attitude that we're taking today. >> johanna marie from our cnn affiliate sky news australia. beware of those lads hanging out behind you trying to get on camera. but certainly i think most australians want to get on with the serious business of the day.
12:27 am
appreciate the update. thanks a lot. all right. let's take a very short break here. still to come, a new attack in u.s. politics. >> that's right. well, donald trump is calling hillary clinton and her reaction. stay with us.

a warm welcome back to everyone. you are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. >> and i am errol barnett. it's our last half hour with you today. let's update you on our top stories. huge demonstrations are breaking out on the streets of brasilia after brazilian lawmakers voted to impeach
12:31 am
president dilma rousseff. she is accused of hiding budget shortfalls to win re-election. miss rousseff calls it a conspiracy to boot her from office. now brazil's senate will vote on whether to proceed to a trial. the death toll from a powerful earthquake on the coast of ecuador has risen to 272. that number has been steadily climbing since the quake hit late saturday. response teams are work desperately to rescue any survivors buried there in the debris. meanwhile, rescuers in japan are racing against the clock, searching for people after a second powerful earthquake that hit saturday. at least 33 people were killed in that one. another less powerful quake hit the same region just two days earlier, killing nine people. >> and what's worse is that two massive quakes in opposite parts of the world happened within a 48-hour period and the weather is making conditions in both locations worse. i'm meteorologist pedram javaheri joins us to describe all that. because as we were talking about
12:32 am
last hour, these were the critical hours when they could potentially find people alive trapped in the rubble. >> that's true. and the temperatures actually in the overnight hours i think the afternoon hours are actually conducive for survival. they're not too hot. they're not too cold. it's the spring season across at least this area of japan. so they're seeing mild temperatures and that's the good news. we'll show you this and compare the quakes as well because not really taking anything from either one of these quakes away, we've got a 7.8, a major quake in ecuador by definition, another 7.0. there a major quake by definition in japan. but the intensity of shaking and based upon a logarithmic calculation that looks at the number you're looking at a 15 times higher shaking that took place across ecuador. we know fatalities six times greaterneck dor versus japan. the population density in japan was much gher. this map in the background is actually showing you the population density around kumamoto in southern japan. but of course the infrastructure in areas of ecuador not in place. we know in japan the bullet trains automatically stop when these primary waves come out of earthquakes instantly and we

know elevators even stop before people are able to enter them if a quake happened right before that is to occur. but the southern portion of our planet near ecuador, these plates are constantly in motion. we know the oceanic crust, a very dense crust that is diving right underneath the south american one, it's moving at a rate of 61 millimeters per year, about 2 1/2 inches per year, which by the way is roughly the rate your finger nails grow every single year. the plates are constantly in motion. and as the forcing happens from one plate toward another they buckle, they lock in certain places. that rebounding effect that takes place when the plates loosen up again is the energy you feel as an earthquake that takes place. take a look at ecuador. this particular quake as it's called a thrust fault. a slip over fault as some u.s. geoscientists describe it as essentially you see typically a dot on a map that really represents the shaking intensity. for this region of ecuador the shaking intensity was not in one point. it was scattered around an area of 10,000 square kilometers, roughly the size of the country of qatar.
12:34 am
that's how large an area felt massive shaking. compared to the aftershocks, 12 since the saturday quake versus 167 aftershocks since the thursday quake in japan. and again-w a 7.8 in ecuador you typically expect one order or two magnitude less of quake there for the aftershock. we have not had a 6 yet, not even a 5 yet. you typically would see ten across this region. globally of course we know we get massive quakes on the order of 15 of them that come in and in line with what is normal, guys, when you talk about major quakes of 2016, so far through yesterday's date we've had some five major quakes. that's between 7 and a 7.9. and we've had one in alaska in january, one in russia, indonesia, and as of last thursday we've had two more. it is not unusual in a sense to have five. you typically see five in the first four months of the year. so we're now right at the norm. absolutely. this is something that people are kind of asking-b is it related? it really isn't. it's all statistical chance and
12:35 am
sometimes you get flipping a coin multiple heads in a row. sometimes you get multiple tails in a row. that's precisely what's happening. >> ring of fire, that kind of plate connection that goes all around the atlantic, the pacific ocean -- >> the pacific, that's right. >> is common, one of the most common places -- >> 90% of all major quakes happen along those boundaries. japan is in there as well as south k mer. >> pedram, appreciate the update. thanks. get this. although republican front-runner donald trump has won more presidential nominating contests than his closest rival, he isn't that far ahead of ted cruz in the delegate count. >> chris frates reports on trump's intensifying complaint about the delegate selection process. >> donald trump firing up his fellow new yorkers ahead of the crucial primary here on tuesday after what was not a great weekend for donald trump. he lost to ted cruz in wyoming, losing all 14 of those delegates at a state convention there
12:36 am
similar to what happened to him in colorado where he lost to ted cruz about a week or so ago at the state convention there and donald trump saying these state conventions are rigged, they're not primaries or caucuses where the voters go to vote and calling the big bosses out. >> they have a system that's rigged. we have a system that's crooked. we have a system that's got a lot of problems. and we have a system that doesn't allow the people to vote in many cases. and if they do vote their vote isn't really representative of what it should be. we have this delegate system, which is a sham. so in colorado the people are going crazy out there because they never got a chance to vote. >> reporter: now, the republican national committee firing back and saying the candidates have known the rules for months. in fact, this is the same process they used to nominate abraham lincoln back in 1860. so there really should be no surprises. but ted cruz using his victory in wyoming to take a little poke at donald trump, tweeting on sunday "donald, over 1.3 million
12:37 am
people just voted in utah, north dakota, wisconsin, colorado, and wyoming. you lost all five in a row by huge margins. #nowhining." so ted cruz taking a little bit of a victory lap after his big win in wyoming on saturday. and he'd better enjoy it if you believe the polls because donald trump winning by double digits here in new york. a recent "wall street journal" poll showing that he had 54% support. ted cruz, on the other hand, had just 16%. so it's a tough slog for him. donald trump looking to take all 95 delegates here on tuesday. if he can win by 50% statewide in each of the congressional districts, he could go a long number of 1,237.ng to that magic of course ted cruz and john kasich trying to stop him. >> chris frates reporting there. now, new york's delegate-rich primary is now just a few -- a day away i should say. and bernie sanders is taking sharp aim at democratic front-runner hillary clinton. thousands of people attended
12:38 am
sanders' rally in brooklyn sunday, where he criticized the source of clinton's campaign funding. >> you cannot have a super pac raise many millions of dollars from wall street or special interests and then tell the american people with a straight face that you're going to stand up to the big money interests. not true. >> and trump is echoing sanders' attacks on clinton's campaign funding. he revealed a new nickname for her during campaign stops in new york. but clinton is brushing it off. >> and then of course we have crooked hillary. crooked hillary, folks. she's been crooked from the beginning. and to think that she has a shot at being our president, crooked hillary clinton. we can't let it happen.
12:39 am
>> i don't respond to donald trump and his string of insults about me. i can take care of myself. i look forward to rung against him if he turns out to be the republican nominee, if i am the democratic nominee. what i'm concerned about is how he goes after everybody else. he goes after women. he goes after muslims. he goes after immigrants. he goes after people with disabiliti disabilities. he is hurting our unity at home. he is undermining the values that we stand for in new york and across america. and he's hurting us around the world. he can say whaefr wants to say about me. i really could care less. >> and remember to join us here on cnn tuesday for the crucial new york primary. we will have coverage all days. so of course stay tuned to cnn for that. some other news we're following. russia is disputing accusations that one of its jets acted aggressively near a u.s. military plane over the baltic sea. the u.s. says a russian aircraft came within 20 meters, that's
12:40 am
just over 60 feet, of a u.s. reconnaissance aircraft on thursday and did a barrel roll around the american plane. cnn's matthew chance has more for us from moscow. >> reporter: russia's defense ministry has rejected criticism that one of its jets made aggressive maneuvers near a u.s. reconnaissance plane over the baltic sea. u.s. military officials say a russian interceptor flew within 50 feet of the u.s. aircraft, which he says was making a routine flight and carried out a risky barrel roll as it flew past in international airspace. the u.s. says the action was unsafe and unprofessional. russia, though, says that version of events is "running counter to reality." defense officials in moscow say russian air defenses were scrambled after identifying a high-speed unidentified target heading for russia's borders. after visual contact was made, the defense official said the u.s. plane changed course.
12:41 am
officials say there was no emergency situations and that the russian flight was in strict conformity with international rules. but of course this is the second close encounters between the u.s. and russian militaries in the past few days. last week russian jets buzzed a u.s. warship, the "uss donald cook," apparently simulating attack passages. the u.s. secretary of state john kerry condemned that as dangerous and provocative. under the rules of engagement, he said, the jets could have been shot down. matthew chance, cnn moscow. iran is showing off parts of its new s-300 missile defense system. the reveal happened at a parade marking iran's national army day. president hassan rouhani spoke at sunday's event saying iran's military was not a threat to its neighbors. the s-300 has a range of around 150 kilometers, or about 90
12:42 am
miles, and it can target multiple aircraft and missiles. russia delivered the first part of the advanced system last week. what was once a meeting place for neighborhood children is now the scene of a deadly suicide blast. >> we will take you to the iraqi city mourning a tragic loss after this. look at 'em!

a community in iraq is grieving after a horrific suicide attack claimed by isis. >> most of the victims were children, as was the bomber himself. arwa damon spoke to some who witnessed the attack. >> reporter: soccer was never just a game here. the escape it provided now tarnished. the boys' shouts and laughter quiet as the incoherent wails of pain echo over the field. hamdi's shoulders quiver with
12:46 am
each moan. for her grandson karad, just 14 years old, whose goalie gloves hang above his image. "for years they played here, nothing happened. how could we have known," she sobs. at least 34 people died that day. most of them under the age of 18. it was the finals match in the local tournament. and hundreds of people from the neighborhood, young and old, had gathered here, each cheering for their respective teams. it was a great, fun day. and then all of a sudden during the awards ceremony the suicide bomber, a teenager himself, came in and detonated right there. this is the moment of impact. [ explosion ] isis quickly claimed responsibility, saying it was targeting members of a shia paramilitary force. posting this photograph of the alleged bomber, a child who
12:47 am
ended up destroying the lives of other children. local authorities say the bomber was brought into the neighborhood the morning of the attack by a man who lived in this house. the man had just been released from prison a month earlier, detained in 2009 in connection to another bombing. ibrahim hussein, a neighborhood leader, tells us the security services called him asking about the man. but hussein says he seemed normal. the man is back in custody. 15-year-old mohammed, who was among the wounded, lies quietly in his home. the last thing he saw was a piercing flash of light. "and then i flew in the air," he says softly. "i can't see." he lost one of his eyes. the others doctors tried to save but the surgery has yet to prove successful. the tragedy tears deep across
12:48 am
too many homes in this impoverished, neglected corner of iraq. sanat yassin can barely speak through her tears. her youngest, 10-year-old muhaned, died. the force of the explosion sent his little body flying across the field. "he looked like he was sleeping," she tells us. "i took him in my arms and i cradled him all night." "i sleep on his pillow now. he's my heart, my soul." parents here did everything they could to shield their children from the violence. little did they know they also had to shield them from their favorite game. arwa damon, cnn, is kandryia, iraq.

disney's "the jungle book" stampedes to number 1 at the u.s. box office. the reboot of the 1967 animated classic earned $103 million in north america this past weekend. that is the second biggest april
12:53 am
opening ever. >> incredible. and the film also brought in an impressive 240 million globally. "the jungle book" is directed by jon favreau and features the voice talents of stars like bill murray and scarlett johansson. joining me now to talk more about the "jungle book" movie is kim serafin of "in touch weekly" magazine. kim, the weekend box office numbers were huge. it appears the movie certainly lived up to all the hype. what is being said about it? >> definitely. "the jungle book," the second biggest opening in april ever. and it makes sense because it got so much publicity leading up to this. this is a live action remake of "the jungle book." i think a lot of people are familiar with the original "jungle book." but you had this amazing remake done by jon favreau, directed it, and it was done really down in a sound stage basically because so much of this was all cgi. but it is really incredible. it got amazing, incredible reviews. a lot of big celebrity voices did some of the voices. and i think this shows you that people want to see movies like
12:54 am
this, they want family movies, and when you have an amazing director like jon favreau helming it, that makes sense why it made 103 mlt domestically and it's up to i think 239 million worldwide by now. >> just visually extraordinary, isn't it? so let's talk about coachella and the long list of stars that performed there. who was there, and what were the main highlights? >> yes. coachella was the place to be this weekend. big music festival out in -- out by palm desert in indio, california. and this is the place to go if you wanted to kind of wear your boho festival style clothing, if you wanted to see celebrities, some who were incognito, and also hear some great music. headlining saturday night was guns n' roses. so that was incredible. but coachella's also where a lot of celebrities appear and like i said hide themselves. there was rihanna and leonardo dicaprio were spot at one of the afterparties, kind of both wearing sunglasses and kind of disguising themselves. then you had taylor swift was there. and then you have a lot of performers get up and make these
12:55 am
surprise performances. kanye west jumped on stage to do a performance. though his mike was out so that was a little strange. kesha, who's been involved in a big lawsuit, she also did a surprise performance. ice cube got rupp there with nwa members. ellie goulding performed. it's really the place to be and the place to be seen and the place to go and party. and expect more of this because this continues on till next weekend as well. >> and another place to be, george clooney's fund-raiser for hillary clinton, that was saturday. how did that go? who was there, and what was said? >> that was another place to be this weekend. george clooney hosted a big celebrity-studded fund-raiser for hillary clinton. ellen degeneres was there. jane fonda was there. anna wintour was there. so a lot of celebrities. and he's actually been out there -- he also was hosting fund-raisers for obama in 2012. but this has gotten a lot of publicity because george clooney has gotten some criticism because of the money this has raised. he actually appeared on "meet the press" talking about the
12:56 am
obscene amount of money in political fund-raising. he and amal hosted a fund-raiser in san francisco on friday night and then at his home on saturday night that i mentioned. ticket prices at the san francisco fund-raiser were up to $350,000. at his house on saturday, 33,000. so it really is an obscene amount of money, but he's really been talking about this. he admits that test an obscene amount of money but expect this to just be the start of hearing a lot about hollywood celebrities and politics as we continue in this election. because hollywood really is divided right now between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. and also some celebrities for donald trump too. >> that's right. it's been very interesting. all right. kim serafin, many thanks to you. appreciate it. >> great. thanks so much. >> and your kids liked "the jungle book." >> yes, they did. >> our camera operate jordan liked "the jungle book." go see it. apparently it's good. >> if those three like it. thanks for watching cnn. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. please connect with us on twitter anytime. it is great to hear from you.
