>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. we begin with the breaking news this hour. the ethiopian airlines flight en route to nairobi was crashed. i'm george howell. >> i'm natalie allen. we just received word of this crash in the past hour. this is what we know early on. the boeing 737 went down near the town of bishoftu. the airline said there 139
passengers, eight crew members on the plane. cnn's robyn kriel joins us in ababa, ethiopia, robin, what are you hearing? >> reporter: the apl has a blackout, and just now they're starting to talk more. what we understand the tweet came from the prime minister. that was the first indication that there was any kind of a plane crash. he offered his condolences to the family who lost loved ones on that flight. for now, what we understand, there is some kind of an operation ongoing. we don't know if it's a rescue operation or search operation. we're hearing mixed reports. i believe the airlines has
issued a statement that has issued a statement, but it was a boeing 737. from my own experience, i can tell you those flights would be fairly full. it's early sunday morning where it would have down here. the orthodox christian country. a lot would be going to church on that day. it's a very sacred day here for a lost ethiopians. we're unsure who would have been aboard that flight, with a lot of ethiopians travel. a lot of flight from addis to other hubs. what kind of an rescue operation would it be, i cannot imagine right now. they had one incident in january where a plane skidded off a runway in uganda. but since then, we haven't heard any reports of this nature.
they are very proud of their airline. it is a national airline. in fact, just yesterday, they were versusing about having an all-female crew flying for national women's day. and of course, we understand that there are at least a couple of casualties. where the place went 40-minute e international airport. i am at the airport and there are planes still taking off and landing here. >> we do know it was flight number 302. we also want to tell our viewers that our meteorologist eric van dam has looked into this. he said there was no weather or thunderstorm activity in that area, or where it took off. or the area where it crashed just a few minutes later. >> and, robin, the amount of time that the plane from takeoff
to losing contact. apparently, it took off at 8:38 local time. and lost contact at 8:44 a.m. which is in line from what you're saying. this crash not happening too far from the international airport. it was in the air a short amount of time. >> reporter: it does seem like it was in the air a short amount of time. i'm trying to figure out where it was and how long it took emergency responders to get there. a lot would come from the international airport and from addis itself. they do have an emergency management system here. there's been a few this week, we know communications were pretty bad. we understand some travel alerts
were issued by different embassies, not to fly into the international airport. due to what would seem to be some unrest. perhaps they were called on social media for protests in the square, which is the main place where protesters gather here. but this was a very different area. this had nothing to do with the airlines. this was due to a land distribution issue with the government. so, exactly what precipitated this emergency crash landing, we actually do not know. whether there's fault with the plane, we just don't know at this point. >> all right. robyn kriel, we appreciate it. we know a rescue is under way. there are reports there might be survivors. breaking news story. flight 302 from ethiopia to
nairobi has crashed. >> and they're going to put a phone number out for loved ones. shortly. but that number has not come out yet. and venezuela, most of that country struggling with widespread blackouts. >> people there are still in the dark, and growing more and more desperate. not that the situation in that country was already so desperate. now, this, look, this is what it looks like. most of the capital has no electricity, except for a fuse box lucky enough to have generators. >> protesters took to the streets marching in rallies, and sent warnings to opponents. >> reporter: we've said it before, the regime wants to wear us out, brothers and sisters, and yes, the road has been very
long. the road has worn us outside. but we will never tire in the search for freedom, and we will stay in the streets. >> translator: if the gringos dare to launch a military action around the country as requested by the opposition, will the bombs fall only on the touris touristas? >> the blackouts are affecting people in hospitals. officials say dialysis patients are unable to get treatment and could suffer heart attacks. >> paula newton has more now from caracas for you. >> reporter: they have passion, but oh, so much frustration, too. opposition protests were marred by confrontations even before they started and when they did, there was this. national guard troops blocking their way at every turn. so, opposition protesters were
trying to walk all the way up this avenue. as you can see here, they're being blocked by the national guard. the national guard continues to move down the road to try to pin them in. opposition protesters are taking to negotiation trying to say they have the right to protest. rosa flores approaches a national protester as they both agree to keep it peaceful. speak to me from the heart, they are venezuelans like you. they don't have power, they don't have food, they don't have anything right now. you're just trying to keep this peaceful? >> yes, i say people to say here in the pacific. >> reporter: passivism is what he means. others like the u.s. military step in.
maduro says he's not going anywhere. >> i need the help. >> reporter: when opposition leader juan guaido spoke, he do seemed they needed some type of a military mission. and gathering in caracas in a textbook rally. the u.s. has no business being here in our country, she tells me. will this pro-government rally is getting its own momentum. with this core supporters he will broadcast this rally in places where the opposition isn't quite as strong. the irony, as president nicolas maduro denounced what he called the imperialist invasion, nearly
no one saw it or heard it. rolling blackouts exist. no tv, mobile coverage, not to mention food, water or medicine. on both sides, venezuelans are at their breaking point. the scene daring to predict what will happen next. paula newton, cnn, caracas. >> earlier, cnn spoke to william splendor from the nation for refugees about the opening of a new aids center in colombia for venezuelan migrants. >> we asked him what the first few days were like. >> the place where the center opened close to the border is one of the areas that is the most where patients from venezuela. and their services there are overwhelmed. there's not enough shelter for them. there's not enough room in schools for children.
the hospitals are also feeling the strange of so many people arrived. so many of them in poor shape from venezuela. the people who will be going to the center are some of the most vulnerable like children, like the elderly, like the sick. like the people who really are in the most desperate need. >> again that was william spindler from the office of the nation's high commission for refugees. now to a story we're following closely. the british government is facing backlash after the death of an isis bride's child. her son reportedly died thursday after being born in a syrian camp last month. the death came after the british government moved to revoke her citizenship, in a letter, begum's sister called the boy the one true innocent.
she asked that at least he be brought to the uk. labor mp diane adam tweets jahvid act ed senseless. the death of any child is tragic and deeply stressing for any family. the foreign and commonwealth office has consistently advised against travel to syria since april 2011. >> to talk more about this, the former chief superintendent for the london metropolitan police. he's also acted as a liaison between the families of girls who join isis and authorities. we appreciate your time, thank you this is a story, of course, highly emotional. and we want to dig deep into it.
bangladesh has refused to admit her. and the british secretary criticized for a decision that apparently left her stateless. now, her deceased baby, she's, of course, in limbo. what are your feelings about how the british government acted in this case? >> well, i think we have to go back to what happened originally. she was one of eight girls, 14, 15-year-old girls targeted by isis. isis was contacting the girls, they wanted child brides. we have to remember that isis is a brutal organization. and nobody in their right mind would have wanted anything to do with the organization. i was brought in as a liaison, because the family discovered that the police and the academy and the children agencies, and social workers were aware that the girls were speaking to isis fighters. but the authorities for whatever reason decided not to share that
information with the girls. so i was brought in because the family felt extremely angry to discover that they could intervene, had they told what was happening. that's the backdrop to this case. fast forward four years, we have to remember when shamima turned up in syria, within days she was married. this is sexual grooming. and we need to ask the internet companies very harsh questions around what they're doing to safe guard our children, whether it's for sexual grooming or radicalization. and they've been criticized, they got a knee jerk reaction and it's against international law. >> i understand that. i want to ask you what critics are saying begum seemed to expect she could return, even though she did choose, she was
very young as i say, brainwashed by isis and she chose to have children there. >> well, i think you have to question how much of it is choice. you're a 15-year-old child you go there and marry a man double your age within days of your arriving, you have to question how much of that is choice and how much is sexual grooming. i think what we have, some are clearly traumatized. she's got significant mental health issues. this is the third child she's lost. it's entirely predictable that a child was likely to die in that camp. temperatures drop to 3 or 4 degrees at night. there's no heating in those camps. she lost her food. and i think what we should be, we should be ashamed of ourselves. we fail to safe guard the child, who was the only true innocent
in all of this. whatever the consequences, we know across the world, we have to make decisions, how are we going to deal with individuals who travel all over the world, brainwashed by isis. >> and what about the question, some are asking whether this is more about national interests and populism, than speaking for people who leave the country to support terrorism. do you think there's some type of deterrent. you did touch on that with regard to how vulnerable young people are on social media. >> that's the challenge we have. you at cnn are related. bbc is regulated. i think with the internet, it's totally unregulated. internet companies allow extremists like isis to use their platform. they allow it on youtube.
they allow it on twitter. they allow it on facebook. it's entirely wrong. there's a big campaign in britain to see how we can have fighter regulations on the internet. we have a young girl she was viewing images of suicide. which are freely available on the internet. i think what we're now asking is, is it appropriate that we have regulate broadcast companies and totally unregulated internet companies that allow extremists like isis to brainwash across the world. >> this young lady has lost her child. it's a continue we continue to follow. perhaps we'll talk with you again as there are developments. we appreciate it. thank you very much. there will be new rules for americans and many others who plan to travel to europe. it has to do with the group of 26 european companies including france, germany and italy.
citizens from 60 countries including the united states will have to apply for security authorization to be granted entry. the european council adopted new regulations last year. it's to screen and reject potential travelers if they're discovered to be a security threat. the u.s. state department says it's similar to the american system that's already in place. >> the president's national emergency to build a border wall is soon to be voted on by the u.s. senate. even the majority leader warns of an embarrassing setback for the president. >> we'll explore that next. also, early polling in iowa offers a snapshot for the democratic candidate so far. the person at the top isn't even in the race. that's coming up here. you're watching "cnn newsroom." ♪

we want to bring you the latest on the breaking news we're following out of africa. ethiopia airlines confirms one of its airlines crashed slightly after takeoff. flight 302 from addis ababa was carried 138 passengers. >> the airline says it went down in the town of bishoftu. apparently in the air a short amount of time. the boeing 737 similar to the one you see here took off at 8:38 local time. lost contact less than ten
minutes later. we're following the story. >> again, it was flight 302. the trump white house is closely watching u.s. senators making note of any republicans who break rank with the president. >> senate could vote this week on the resolution disaproving of the president's latest evidence to fund his southern border wall. mr. trump plans to veto that if it passes. also on the president's radar his disgraced campaign chair yan paul manafort goes back to another federal judge on wednesday for sentencing, for the second case, adding to the 44 months, less than four years he received last week. right now, the top preferences among iowa voters former u.s. president joe biden and u.s. senator bernie sanders. the 2020 election cycle
officially kicks off a year in now with the iowa caucuses. cnn's ryan nobles explains how the democratic field is shaping up at this early stage. >> reporter: the last time we took the temperature of iowa voters there were very few candidates in the race. i can tell you after having just returned from iowa, that the campaign is very much on. we now have 14 candidates who have officially announced or formed exploratory committees. despite having so many candidates in the field, the results have not changed all that much from december. joe biden and bernie sanders top the field by a pretty wide margin. of the sanders trailing behind from only two points from biden. and elizabeth warren has 9%. kamala harris at 7%. cory booker and klobuchar measure 3%. there's not even one candidate that we polled registered above
the 1% mark. that's important because a candidate must earn at least 3% in three different upcoming polls. now, there is movement from what we saw in december and that movement is really to the benefit of bernie sanders. take a look at a couple months ago. sanders at 19%. biden at 32%. sanders has gone up to 25%. biden to 27%. the big difference there, sanders officially in the race, biden not quite yet. we should know that beto o'rourke, another candidate not quite in yet was at 11% in december, he's also dropped off to 5%. there's also something about the way the youth vote has on these candidates. i was at an event with bernie sanders at a college campus in iowa city. there were so many young people passionately behind his campaign and that's really reflected in
the poll. voters under the age of 35 are at 32%. but when you flip that with voters over 35, he takes 35% of the vote. there's certainly a lot of energy with young people. generally the older voter, especially in a caucus state like iowa is a lot more reliable. of course, the big thing we need to remind everyone. we're still a long way from votes being cast. it's very different in this snapshot of time to end very different from now. and a professor of government at the university of ethics, we want to talk more about this. let's start with the new poll of voters in the all important state of iowa. this is always iowa's big moment on the word stage. that state always a litmus test for candidates running. the polls show joe biden is
beaten bernie sanders, even though biden is not officially running yet. what do you make of it? >> well, i mean, this actually isn't anything new as already reported. these two are the two front-runners because they have name recognition. everybody knows them. they have a long experience being involved in politics. and they both have messages that probably resonate with low and middle income voters in middle america and, you know, both of them are far ahead of the other candidates because of all of these different factors but when we turn to the primaries and what tends to happen. primaries to be more democrat to the left and republican more to the right. this is where joe biden has more vulnerabilities. he has some blemishes on his record. he might not energize the base has already reported. he doesn't do as well as bernie sanders does with young voters. but what a lot of the voters are
thinking of in the iowa caucus and other primaries is who is going to do the best in head-to-head race against trump. what all of the polls are indicating, even some of the more conservative polls is that the best bet is biden. he'll attract liberal voters, understanding that he had eight years of experience as vice president under obama. and he tends to attract the same voters that trump attracts which are noneducated male voters. there's a concern that bernie sanders is going to be get hammered by republicans as a socialist. there's still a while for the election to take place. but at the moment, i would think that joe biden is the front-runner. >> joe biden, interesting, would like to take on donald trump. remember that about the
schoolyard fight. i'll take you out there. it's interesting, natasha, other candidates are not going there. they're not mentioning donald trump. here we are with this president that has so divided the country and they're staying mum on it. they're taking the high road. do you expect that to maintain? >> well, i think for some of these other candidates like elizabeth warren and kamala harris, they're trying to carve out their own identity at this moment. gain some momentum, try to communicate to america a little bit more about who they are. and, you know, it isn't really necessary yet to be talking about trump. and there's a lot of uncertainty even as to what's going to happen with trump. i think the early candidates, you know, they just want to educate and inform american voters a little bit more about what they stand for. and why they should vote for them. >> well, there's a long way to
go. iowa, we're watching you. gna natasha, we appreciate your insights. right after the break, we'll be back with the breaking news we're following. a plane crash in ethiopia. stand by. we'll be back. ♪ trelegy. the power of 1-2-3 ♪ trelegy 1-2-3 trelegy with trelegy and the power of 1-2-3, i'm breathing better. trelegy works 3 ways to... ...open airways,... ...keep them open... ...and reduce inflammation... ...for 24 hours of better breathing. trelegy won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. trelegy is not for asthma. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. do not take trelegy more than prescribed. trelegy may increase your risk of thrush, pneumonia, and osteoporosis. call your doctor if worsened breathing, chest pain, mouth or tongue swelling,.. ...problems urinating, vision changes, or eye pain occur. think your copd medicine is doing enough?

member, his mother says, but he was found to be carrying a knife at the time. five months after losing one child, another of rachel's sons was also stabbed. he survived. >> those three incident from october 17th, it left my son dead but it left two young boys in prison. the ripple effect destroyed -- my youngest two, when they go on the road, they're now frightened of seeing teenagers. >> reporter: knife crimes rose 30% last year across the country to almost 43,000. a trend blamed on cuts to policing and community services. rachel says the solution isn't just policing but better prospects for youths. she plans to meet her son's killer in jail this year with a message to turn his life around. >> you now need to complete what he was building. i don't want to hear i'm sorry, i want you to now make something
of your life. >> reporter: the message that the pope love/hate to promote scenes like these. >> leroy, thank you for your time. >> no problem. >> an incredibly disturbing story to see the imagery of these attacks happening. what more are you tell us about who is committing the crimes, who's is behind them and potentially why? >> well, the crimes are not just bound to anyone involved in criminality. or gangs. that accounts for less than half of the knife crimes. it's just the normalization of violence. you start to see how traumatized communities, especially young people suffering from adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress is now presenting itself in terms of violence.
and it's obviously getting more numbers are lower in the states. however, the knife is the weapon of choice. and the victims and suspects are getting younger. and the victims themselves are no longer involved in just urban areas. it is going out to your suburban leafy suburbs where you normally wouldn't see that form of crime. >> it is interesting. you point out, leroy, that the people behind this tend to get younger and younger. i'm curious to also ask you, one report linking this to school budget cuts. fewer students are in school. is that part of the problem? >> yeah. we have found that there is a link between crime and exclusions. you're eight to nine times more likely to be involved in crime if you've been excluded and then
you go to a pupil or unit or some sort of an establishment where you're left of your own devices, and as a result of that, you encounter more hardened criminals who then groom you and manipulate and control, you that start to go into more severe crimes. and also, there's these -- another form of trauma that you're seeing with these young people is that they easily are groomed and they're going to these initiations, and they will stab and kill people just to be part of a collection of youngsters who are into thug life and glorified gangster glamour. it's just bidding and it's getting into a crisis. that's why i've asked for cobra, which is a ministerial meeting that normally is brought in when there is a crisis to do with terrorism or floods or whatever. because we got a national crisis. not just in london.
it's all across the country. and they need to bring in cobra. and the home secretary needs to coordinate that group so they control all of the assets, early interventions, safe guarding agencies to be but up and of course, police numbers, to make sure they reconnect with the community. >> leroy, we appreciate your insight here again. important to point out that this is a crisis that continues, you know, more than just policing. it takes, certainly, involvement, community involvement to address this. we appreciate your time, thank you. >> you're welcome. again, our breaking news this hour. an ethiopian airlines flight in en route to nairobi, kenya, has crashed according to a state from the airline. the boeing 737 went down early sunday morning near the town of bishoftu. the airline says there were 149 passengers and eight crew
members. let's go to david in johannesburg, what have you learned. >> what we know, this plane with 140 manned passengers, eight crew, it lost contact with ground control just ten minutes after breaking off of that early morning flight, commuter flight from ethiopia to nairobi, one of the most popular on the continent. the last contact, as the airline said, it went down somewhere near bishoftu which is about an hour's drive from the capital. now it was that this was a brand-nbran brand-new 737 that went down
from the airlines last year. in that case, it's believed there was an issue with the sensor input, something boeing admitted to. it's too early to say, of course, what caused this crash. but that will be a worrying sign, because of the same type of aircraft. and the fact that this airline lost contact soon after takeoff, similar to the lion air crash. the prime minister of ethiopia weighing in. in fact, many people found out about this first from his twitter page, saying that he sends his deepest condolences to families of those who lost their loved ones. the airline, though, is saying they have no information yet on possible survivors or deaths because of this crash. ethiopia airline is one of the biggest airlines in africa. has an excellent safety record and is well-known as incentive
for boeing airlines. that airport, the bole international airport is extremely busy for passengers all over the world transiting through addis ababa in the mountainous region of the city. at this stage, those are the details we have and rescuers will be already on the scene, natalie. >> very interesting information you just brought up, that this was a new aircraft like the one that crashed, that lion aircraft, and that they were both in the air such a short amount of time. i'm trying to remember, david, didn't the crew in the lion crash, didn't they signal some duress from the cockpit? >> reporter: well, there was the issue of the sensors and that the crew had difficulty controlling the plane because of the sensor inputs. that was the initial assessment of that lion air crash. in this case, we don't know if there was communication at this
stage, between the airline on the ground, the ground staff, as well as the pilots leaving on that morning flight to nairobi. now, there are multiple flights a day between nairobi and addis ababa. this is a very popular route as i said. and ethiopia airlines has perhaps the newest fleet in africa, in fact amongst any major carriers. they have invested heavily in the airline and would have received this aircraft only recently. so too early to say. the primary worry will be for the families waiting in both addis ababa and nairobi and around the world, waiting for information. they've set up a center in the airport to try to learn more
about the information. they said they will bring up more information soon. but this is only a couple hours after this incident appears to have occurred. it is relatively close to the capital, so there should be assets that they can send from addis to the area that this plane apparently went down, according to ethiopian airlines. but certainly, there will be very worried families across east africa both at the kenyatta airport in nairobi and in addis. >> do you have any information, you've traveled extensively across africa, any information on bishoftu, where this plane crashed? >> well, it's a town southeast of the capital. about an hour's drive away from addis. it's not clear how close it is to that area. it could be that that's the closest point. outside of the immediate capital, it's a big city, the capital of ethiopia. it's relatively rural in those regions.
so, the key would be now to try and get people on the scene. ethiopian airlines said there are rescuers on the scene, or at least officials on the scene of this crash. we have not seen any images or indications of any crash rescues going on. but so soon after takeoff, the fears will be, whether there are survivors in this crash, of course, the lion air crash with the same kind of plane, there were no survivors of either the passengers or crew. natalie. >> david mckenzie, we'll say in close contact with you as you continue to break this breaking news story. thank you. >> we'll be right back, after the break. wrinkles just won't. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair's derm-proven retinol works so fast, it takes only one week to reveal younger looking skin. making wrinkles look

we want to update you on the breaking news we're following out of african. ethiopia airlines confirms one of its planes crashed slightly after takeoff. flight 302 from addis ababa from nairobi carrying 140 passengers, eight crew members on board. it went down in the town of bishoftu, outside of the capital city. the boeing 737 looks similar to the one here took off the 8:38 local time. lost contact about ten minutes later. let's talk more with our aviation expert. glad to you have on to tell us more about what we know so far which is very little except to say that this plane was in flight for a very short amount of time. >> it was. this is what has turned to be a real tragedy for ethiopian aviation as a whole. to recap, this is ethiopian
airlines. they are one the largest airlines in the continent of africa. they are the flag carrier for ethiopia and they work out of that hub in addis ababa. given they're an alliance member, they shuttle passengers from around the world through that addis ababa hub. one thing that's unique with that compared to other airlines, they do operate nearly all of the world's brand-new aircraft. and one of the aircrafts including the boeing 737 max. this is boeing's latest version that focuses on efficiency. and ethiopia airlines has been one of the first customers to operate. sadly, this aircraft in today's crash was a 737 max that was delivered to the airlines just four months ago. >> alex, i want to point out a coincidence here. there's not much we can draw from it, but it is important to point this out.
you'll remember the lion air flight, october of last year, boeing 737 max 8, this plane crashed taking off out of jakarta. again, we're seeing the same plane, alex, involved in another crash. >> we won't talk about the types of accident because the lion air accident is still being investigated, but, yes, you're absolutely correct. this is the second 737 max 8 incident in less than five months. that is somewhat unprecedented for a brand-new aircraft. but we shouldn't draw any conclusions yet. because it's yet to be determined what has happened to this laptop. and search and rescue is still under way. naturally, this is going to send jitters across the industry until we know more. >> i want to under score what you said, not to draw any conclusions on it but it is
important to point out the coincidence as part of the context of this story. alex, we appreciate your time. thank you for being with us as we continue to follow this. we will continue with our news on the story just after the break. stay with us.
