with meghan by his side this modern couple on course to redefine britain's most famous family and change the monarchy forever. ♪ ♪ there is concern from residents about this latest lava activity, especially with the cracks that are now forming along highway 132. >> take this time to prepare for a evacuation that may come at a moment's notice. >> it brings up lava and closes the road we will have a hard time getting to town. >> this is the first time in my life. scare me to death. >> announcer: this is "new day
weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. good morning to you. hawaii on high alert. the threat of a volcanic eruption is growing by the minutes as new cracks in the ground spewing lava. these are dangerous gases and look at the new pictures we are getting in. we will talk there. >> north korea says it will let the world watch as it blows up its nuclear test sites. dramatic video capturing the devastating scene after a series of suicide bombings target christian churches in indonesia. there is a mother's quest to protect kids across the country. how aaron's law is changing the way your children are learning about some delicate and difficult topics. we start this morning with you with this breaking news out of hawaii. new threats, new warnings and
some terrifying new video out of that state. overnight, two new cracks opened up in the ground sending lava spewing into the air on the big island. >> the people there are high alert as the officials announce a massive eruption is coming and coming soon and leave zero warning and little time to evacuate. cnn's meteorologist allison chinchar is tracking every development in the severe weather center. the cracks are dangerous but they have urgent warning they bring of them of what is to come, right? >> yeah. we talk about no warning time. to a certain extent this is your warning. this is to let you know an eminent eruption is likely. you have to you understand eminent in geo logical terms not is not in general conversation. that could be hours from now or weeks from now.
two new fissures have opened up. high emission of sulfur dioxide is coming out of those fissures. an eruption is supposed to take place at the summit. here is a map of the earthquake activity. here is the kilauea summit. here is the communities last week were evacuated from. this is called the east rift zone where the heavier population is as opposed to the summit of the volcano. focus on the green dots. these are the previous fissures. this dot up here 16 and 17. they are away from a lot of the other ones that poses its own new threats because this is now an area has not had to deal with the fissures just yet and most
of the roads closed are south and west of this point so they have to close more roads around the two new fissures that have opened back up. being farther away from it you have to understand where the flow of that lava is going to go. so precautionary areas blocked off in the short term. 16 and 17 and opened at 6:45 hawaii time and they are five hours back eastern time. this produced lava flows of 250 yards so far and that lava continues to flow. fissure 17 south of that and communities down slope of on high guard to evacuate at a moment's ago. when you saw about fissures you have to understand. it's cracks that break at the surface to relieve some of that pressure of the magna building
up and you can get so much lava that comes on to the roadways and even into homes and businesses, unfortunately. >> allison chinchar is wang everything for us. thank you so much. joining us now on regarding what is happening on the ground, hawaii police spokesman allen richmond. thank you for being with us. i understand it, you're a mile from the summit, if i remember correctly. what has changed for you what you're seeing and feeling there in the last 24 hours? >> hello. from the summit, to a large degree, not much. there has been a plume of smoke and steam coming up throughout the day earlier. kind of a black cloud. we had an earthquake a minute and a half ago and typically the earthquakes at the summit have been in the range of 3.2 to 3.5 after shocks if you will.
the possibility of steam meeting down are a possibility and about 1 nou 500 residents that live up in volcano hawaii so concerning for residents here. the thnational park closed on friday and the 16, 17, you elude to do earlier opened up today and there is a splattering of volcanic lava and gases in that area coming up that could potentially be evacuated. >> allen, this is a story about eruptions and earthquakes but also a story about people. what are you hearing from the people, the degree of concern, of fear, of urgency as these
news fissures open? >> people of hawaii are amazing, especially if you live here and are aware of mother nature and the possibilities of an eruption. kilauea has been active, one of the world's most active volcanoes since january 3rd of 1983 and the last time an event like this was was in 1924. it's cyclical as far as volcanoes go but unpredictable and the fear factor. the police department is here to serve and protect so we are doing everything we can in the areas down around the vents in the district to keep people safe and keep people out of there and make sure that the gases aren't continuing threat, although they will be at the top or at the bottom. we are trying to do our best to take care of people. there are evacuations centers
that have been set up in puna and kia district. people generally are going with the flow, if you'll excuse the theme there. and they are very -- i don't want to say they take it with a grain of salt, but it's very fearful for a lot of them and some of them had grown up on the islands here are just aware that is how the islands were formed from volcanic eruptions. >> allen, we know you're doing everything you can. thank you so much for what you're doing for the people there and keeping us informed. i know it's only 1:00 in the morning where you are right now so thank you for being able to let the rest of us know what is happening. we have been keeping all of you in our thoughts. take good care. >> thanks so much. we thank you for the support and thoughts and prayers from the people around the world. >> absolutely. thank you, allen. from rogue state to possibly a peaceful partner.
north korea appears to have gone through a significant makeover here. the hermit state says it's taking technical measures to their nuclear sites and inviting journalists to watch. >> reporter: president trump tweeted this. cnn senior international correspondent ivan watson is live with us from seoul, south korea. ivan, is this scene worldwide as that kind of a gesture, gracious and smart? >> reporter: it certainly is another olive branch that north korea is offering. . pledged last month it would dismantle this nuclear testing facility. it's a mountain in the north of north korea where we believe all of its six nuclear weapons tests, its blasts have taken place. the most recent and most
powerful one, the sixth nuclear blast was in september of last year. and in this announcement, the foreign ministry of north korea said between may 24th and 25th a ceremony for collapsing the tunnels that were used to burrow the mountains to set off the bombs inside and it was going to dismantle the surrounding facilities and journalist from five different countries would be invited to witness this. now, it's interesting that almost exactly on decade ago, this month, north korea had a similar ceremony when it demolished a water cooling tower that was used as part of its plutonium enrichment process. it invited journalists. cnn was there with its cameras and invited american diplomats but the talks broke down in the subsequent months and north korea conducted another nuclear test less than a year after.
there is one more encouraging sign. the international civil aviation organization it says it met with north korean civil aviation officials in pyongyang recently and announced they wouldn't carry out any more ballistic missile launches which last fall were happening and kind of waking up all of the security forces in east asia on almost a weekly basis so that is also a welcome signal from north korea. >> ivan watson watching everything in seoul, thank you. from north korea to israeli. the other region where the white house is claiming some foreign policy success. >> on the world stage, you've seen america embracing our role as leader of the free world. with action just this week on iran, north korea, and monday, america will lead the world again when we open our new embassy in jerusalem, the capital of israeli.
>> but the move, although fulfilling one of president trump's campaign promises and being called truly historic happening by israeli is being seen as a controversial step by many world leaders are afraid it might spike tensions in the middle east. >> these pictures coming to us a short time ago. there is ivanka trump and jared kushner who have arrived at the airport in israeli, ahead of the em bassey move. what are you hearing about protests? >> reporter: they are expected to be a number of protests. the israeli military, the idf has boosted its forces around gaza and two brigades there and one in the west bank. protests and demonstrations are expected here and throughout other countries and throughout the middle east. there isn't a more sensitive week probably on the entire
calendar starting with today. today is jerusalem day where israelis mark what they consider the reunification of jerusalem. an event alone, in and of itself, spikes tensions around jerusalem. that leads into the em babassy opening. what they mark as the of the month of ramadan. so as we see so observe here you have two completely different reactions. the israeli are celebrating the palestinians are furious and it is an incredibly volatile week. we will be at the embassy tomorrow and so many different
events are flash points could lead to troubling week to see how the week develops and plays out. >> orrin lieberman, thank you. we appreciate it. national security adviser john bolton and senator bernie sanders will be joining jake tapper this morning on "state of the union" at 9:00 a.m. bombs exploded at three churches and you can imagine the melee happened after that in indonesia. we will have details in a moment. new details about the suspect in the stabbing spree in paris this morning. we are learning he was on an anti-terror watchlist. how does china's first domestic aircraft carrier stack up against american technology? that is coming up later this hour. . that was it for me. that's why i'm quitting with nicorette. only nicorette mini has a patented fast dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden

indonesia sunday morning. look at this. see the smoke in this is the aftermath of the bombing. at least ten people were killed and dozens more were injured and sent to hospitals. police satisfy the first attack at santa maria catholic church was carried out by a bomber on a make and two other attacks on christian central church and a central church and indonesia is the most popular muslim country. new details this morning about the suspect that went on a stabbing spree in paris and killed one and injured four others and apparently he was on a police radar placed on an anti-terror watchlist and suspected of having radicalized views and did pose a security threat, we are learning. cnn correspondent melissa bell is in paris with more details. what are you learning about the suspect? >> reporter: that he was very young. this is a man who was born in
1997 in chechen and was a french citizen and hope to learn more over the course of the day since his mother and father are in police custody. details how he became radicalized and when he became radicalized and exactly what he was hoping to achieve when he set out on paris with the knife last night and those are the subject of speculation this morning. this is exactly where it happened in the evening. this would have been a bustling part of paris on saturday night and happened before 9:00 p.m. we spoke to one man who saw exactly what happened. >> i saw the attacker come just down the street here with blood on his hands and carrying the cutter and with his arms open gesturing to the three policemen. they managed to sort of circle tame and tasers several times but i think missed him. he managed to isolate one of the policemen and move down the street. as he went in, the plan shot
twice and he fell. >> reporter: you can imagine the shock and you heard it in that man's voice who were around here witnessing as they did a stabbing since one man has died and four others were injured. we are hearing one of the injured will recover. 249th person to die in terror-related attacks in france since 2015. this is something the country has become all too familiar with but attacks against civilians was not that common in the previous years. we have seen it with military police and police men and women but not so much against civilians so a huge amount of shock here in the center of paris this morning. >> melissa bell, thank you so much. the daughter of the late dr. martin luther king is calling for a boycott at waffle house after seeing this.

boom! waffle house is respond to go a tweet from martin luther king jr.'s daughter calling for a boycott. she tweeted after seeing this video. look at the screen. it shows an officer choking and slamming a young black man against a wall outside of waffle house in warsaw, north carolina. the police officer was called after the man anthony wall got into an argument with an employee and wall admits he was wrong for the argument but he says the police officer went too far. here is the response from waffle house. the fbi, north carolina state bureau of investigation, and police are investigate the incident but the mayor who is black has released a video
defending the officer involved. joining me now is wesley lowery who is author of "they can't kill us all." wes, welcome back. >> thanks for having me, victor. >> are police explaining, first, how this argument inside the waffle house by all reports that i've read was not a physical altercation, it was an argument escalated to what we just watched? >> certainly. that remains one of the kind of chief questions about this incident and others, right? we remember this doesn't happen in a vacuum. not only this incident but a second incident in a waffle house in alabama, i believe, a week or two ago. this is at a time where we have seen a number of videos going viral that speak to not necessarily police use of deadly force but police use of force, choking people or slamming people. many of them beginning are being
precipitati precipitated with someone else calling the place. what we need to know and figuring out in this case what exactly what happened inside of this restaurant that led to the police being summoned in the first place but beyond that what happens in the moments before the video? we, obviously, see the young man and the police officer interacting very closely. we see the choking and the slamming but there is a question of what happens right before that and i think the police officer, the department themselves, would argue that perhaps there was something about that interaction that we don't know about. >> so you brought up the incident in alabama about three weeks ago. a black woman at this restaurant in alabama was dragged to the ground by police after employees called, there was an argument over plastic utensils and being charged for them. is it appropriate, from what we know about these two instances and you highlight a little bit of the answer to this question, to tag this as a waffle house incident or are waffle house employees calling the police when potentially customers get a little rowdy and then what we
see is the interaction with police? not so much waffle house? >> sure. i think that seems to be a big part of it, right? waffle house or any private establishment like this has the right to decide who it wants there and who it does not and if someone is either intoxicated or in some type of altercation with a member of their staff. again, not to litigate the specific incidents but they certainly have the right to try to remove someone or make decisions like that. but it becomes, again, i think it fits within a context of a broader situation but not just waffle house but an incident at yale recently and an incident in oakland, a woman calling police on a black men barbecuing in park and a yale woman was studying and sleeping in a common room. the idea of what should the role of police officers be? what should we be calling 911 for? because perhaps, no matter the circumstances once you call 911, you're inserting police
officers, people who are armed and trained to interact physically very often and people we know don't deescalate situations but escalate situations and create danger for whomever is involved. >> king tweeted out the following. is this call for a boycott resona resonating? i know it's fairly new. but any commitment from corporate to commit to these demands? >> i haven't necessarily seen a comi commitment from waffle house incorporated. what i think what is interesting to compare this to the videos from starbucks a few weeks ago. young black men who were waiting for a business meeting in a philadelphia starbucks the police came and kicked them out. you saw it was starbucks
corporate and they received some concern for their handling of this and how a corporate it was an idea the idea had gone viral and starbucks before you agree with everything they did or not clearly made a decision, look. we are going to look pro active and do something. waffle house take taken, in some ways, a different tactic they tried to litigate the instances. they say we don't think we are at fault here and we think there are some circumstances and look at this interview the young man did here and what happened there. what you're seeing you're a corporate entity sticking to its guns saying we are not apologizing for this. you can understand why they might do that but what begs the question of what happens when there is another video or what happens when something happens next week? all of the, waffle house is a figure people can oppose as
opposed to starbucks where they quickly said, we agree this looked bad, let's do something about it. >> the statement from waffle house did stand out where they say there is more to these stories than the short videos might suggest. wesley lowrie, thank you for being here. china marks a mightily stone. the u.s. opening its embassy in jerusalem officially tomorrow. jared and ivanka arrived a few hours ago but there are new questions about who is speaking at that opening ceremony. since my stroke, he hasn't left my side. with the right steps, 80%of recurrent ischemic strokes could be prevented. a bayer aspirin regimen is one step to help prevent another stroke. so, i'm doing all i can to stay in his life. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

secret of islam. a region that promotes pedophilia. >> hindus and buddhist, islam cults? >> yes, absolutely. mohammed was nothing but a blood thirsty war lord who beheaded 600 jews who would not follow him in the battle. israeli is wrong. mormonism is wrong. it is a harrisy from the hit of hell. >> pastor gwynne, thank you for being with us. do you think that he is the right person to give this opening tomorrow? >> no, indeed. it's shocking and amazing that we would be hearing from, quote, a baptist minister who espouses
the president is the most moral leader of this nation and defy a holy pace with their presence is astounding to me. >> pastor, i want you to listen to -- this is megapastor john haigy founder of christians for israeli. he will deliver the benediction at the opening ceremony tomorrow, now. for people at home who recognize the name, in 2008 then candidate for president john mccain had to reject his endorsement for these comments made in the 1990 suggesting that hitler and the holocaust were part of god's plan. listen to pastor ha oor haggy h >> here.
>> now we want to read that he said to assert in any way i condone the hitler is the biggest and ugliest of the lies and what he is saying here is that the holocaust was part of god's plan for this man to go to jerusalem, of all places in the world. your reaction. >> you know, i've heard pastor john hagee through the years along with jerry falwell and others who espoused that fundamental belief that the jews, god brought the holocaust to punish the jews. nazi holocaust brought the holocaust to punish the jews. the founder of our christian
face because we are the first christian church was made up of 3,000 jews on a day of pentecost so why is it that they feel they are so separate from the jews when they are really judio christians? >> john mccain had to reject hagee's endorsement and repudiate the comments. we all remember what president obama said about jeremiah wright and his comments. why does there appear to be most response, no consequence for president trump? >> you know, it's amazed me because, number one, president trump has some moral issues of his own. the thing that the fundamentalist and southern baptist convention, which is one strict philadelph
fundamentally is amazing to me. they were strict when it came to religious doctrine and now very lukewarm in their doctrine teaching. they seem to espouse the fact that the end justify the means no matter how evil a person might be after the results seem to be okay and we can accept that individual. >> reverend alvin gwynn, thank you for being with us and we appreciate your time. >> you're welcome. a survivor of sexual abuse so a mission to protect children from across the country. next, how her story is helping change laws in more than two dozen states. you'll want to see this. first, we head to vermont. and go to our coffee shop. and meet dave. hey. why is dark magic so spell-bindingly good, he asks? let me show you. let's go. so we climb. hike. see a bear. woah. reach the top. dave says dark magic is a bold blend of coffee with rich flavors of uganda, sumatra, colombia and other parts of south america. like these mountains, each amazing on their own. but together? magical. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters packed with goodness.

look at me and say, you know, you're ruining your children's childhood. i'd rather have my kids in therapy some day because they didn't get to go to the overnights. >> reporter: and kids need to have a voice and tell someone when they have been abused because she will never forget why she didn't tell. >> i was told from 6 to 8 i know where you live. i'll come get you. no one will believe you. and i was repeatedly told that and i believed it. i feared he was going to break moo my house at night or waiting in my closest or under my bed for me. a lot of parents don't allow the fear they put in kids to keep them silent. >> reporter: she says the only reason she found courage to tell her parents that her little sister confided that their cousin was sexually abusing her as well. >> my mother was in tears. instant tears hugging me and my dad came home from work and i'll never forget the first thing ed to me as i was sitting there in
the kitchen. why didn't you tell me he was doing this to you? i looked at my dad and said, "he told me you wouldn't believe me." the law has passed in 35 states. the most recent may 8th in georgia. does it work? look at this. after erin's law went into effect in maryland an article in "the washington post" tells the story of a fifth grade girl during a lesson on personal body safety slumps in her chair and stared out the woivenindow and her head on the desk. when alert educators noticed this they asked if something was wrong. she said this man was abusing her and he was immediately put on leave and the investigation started and he was sentenced to 48 years in prison for sexually abusing four students over a
15-year period. erin reminds parents there are signs we need to watch for. >> the person that suddenly wants to spend so much more time with your kids, seeking them out more. you know? that person that suddenly giving your children lots of gifts because predators will use that as a way to silence kids. jerry sandusky did it with multiple of his multiple victims. satellite news center them with video games, trips, other things to keep them quiet. >> reporter: but that is what erin's law is all about. making sure there is most satellite news center. >> you will be believed and you can use your voice and somebody will believe you that you tell. >> that is the biggest takeaway she wants us to know is let our children know that we believe them. there are signs that a child may be abused. if they are having nightmares, mood swings, including rage, fear, anxiety, depression. erin is working to get the other 15 states to pass her law and to get more information here about
