11:00 pm
hello, again. welcome back to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. >> thanks for staying with us as we continue special coverage out of ferguson, missouri. what we've just witnessed after a day of mostly peaceful protests in this town, things took a slight turn for the worse, just before midnight there. it's 1:00 a.m. local time. >> there were those very peaceful protests, but then someone in the crowd threw a water bottle at police. they responded by rushing into the crowd to arrest the person. >> and things got slightly more
11:01 pm
chaotic from there. police ordered the crowd to disperse. more bottles were thrown. police ran in one direction, protesters in another. you will hear how it sounded earlier. people imploring protesters to stand back. things look like they are about to kick off once again. >> yeah. and these community leaders, heros of the day, truly standing between the police and the protesters. and this point, most of the crowd seems to have gone home. although, there is still a large police presence. >> and i just saw there, a police officer appearing to spray tear gas. that the first time i'm seeing that. we also saw a woman on the ground. people next to her trying to help her clean that, what appears to be irritated eyes. people outside that fast-food restaurant, trying to, over the past few days. our stephanie elam is there on the ground in ferguson, missouri. she's been spending the day with locals, marching with them. you just watched this unfold in
11:02 pm
front of you, stephanie. just bring us up to speed on what you witnessed today. >> you know, the truth of the matter is, the vast majority of people that i encountered, that i witnessed, were peaceful. they were out here it make their voices heard. they were very upset about mike brown. and they do not want his death to be in vein. that's what they were telling me. they were coming out to march for that very reason. they were out here and there were somewhat disjointed groups but also groups marching in sort of a circle through the blocked off area that they were almost assigned to. the police blocked off the street on boj sides. there is a few block area where they are doing this lap of protesting. they were out there, chanting, there were all kind of people that i saw out there. i saw men, i saw women, i saw children. i saw black people, white people, asian people. all kind of people out there protesting. really peacefully. the vast majority of people.
11:03 pm
that is who was out here. who was out here even into the night. we got way deeper into the evening tonight. without anything happening. so for the vast majority of the hours, i would say that it did go along as most people wanted it. there were people from the community, who were really working to make sure that these protests, that their voices were heard. but that it didn't escalate into anything more. i also saw police officers trying to contain officers to make sure that it wasn't an overreaction. some people saying that as soon as the officers put on their helmets and put up their shields, that that made things feel more tense. and that did not make things better. earlier in the day, i saw police officers going up to people asking them to move when they did not have on their helmets, when they didn't have on their shields and that is a huge confrontation. so there is something about that military looking field coming towards them that did change the tone here. and so that was one thing that people were asking the police to
11:04 pm
do, to tone back on how much that military look they went with. and also asking people to just remember, just you know, keeping doing what you're doing. keep it in the same area. keep walking. keep marching. do what you're free to do. and it happened like that. just at the end when one water bottle was thrown and that's when we saw everything change. >> stephanie, good to see that so far, it's just past 1:00 a.m. now, the officials may have been taking the suggestions and the lessons from the past few nights and having a less militarized stance. even if we get through tonight, the story isn't over. the state grand jury will see evidence for the first time, possibly tomorrow in the shooting death of michael brown with u.s. attorney general eric holder is coming to furgason. there is an fbi investigation as well. you talked with people there. how much do they trust the current prosecutor to do a good job? even a fund with $33,000 already
11:05 pm
from about 900 people raised for the police officer in question. how much do people trust that this legal system will work for them? >> there's a lot of mistrust. a lot of questions for people with their best interest. some of the people i talked to in the community said, you know what, it's going to continue like this each night until there's information from this. and it's going to continue if the officer that shot mike brown is not arrested. they said that this will continue if he's not indicted. and this will continue also through monday when we now know that's when michael brown's funeral is going to be held. a lot of people here are very concerned that this is something that's just sort of swept under the rug and forgotten and for that reason, that's why they are
11:06 pm
coming out here everyday. they have the shirts, signs an they feel the need to march because they do not want to be in vein. this is a population here. there are people here who live in ferguson who feel like their voices have not been heard and that their lives from been compromised and that they don't matter. so because of that, they are angry enough and as they were chanting that they have energy, they're young enough to be here all night, keep coming out here to protest, what they think is a system that unfairly targets them, and also will not actually help them in this process. that's their concern here in the town. and obviously, they are already planning to protest in the morning at one of the city officials because of this very issue. it is a hot button issue here no doubt. >> and still there is this sense that there is a some sort of turning point there in ferguson. maybe even a unifying force. there's things that people want in that community. they want changes. what are they saying to you about that?
11:07 pm
going forward. how they want to see their town, their city, in the future? >> well, we have heard about people who are willing to come in, work together in the community, to rebuild a quick trip that was burned down early on. and here in ferguson. rebuild some of the buildings and businesses that have been damaged. also helping people find more black police officers to join the force in ferguson. so maybe look more like the community here. these are things that i've heard people talking about, that they are looking to do as they move forward. because they are saying, if there's anything they should have learned from this, is that there is something they can do to make better here in their community. of course, a lot of people talk about this. it is one thing to say that. it is another thing to make it happen. there are community folks who say they believe they can make that happen now because they are unified on that front. >> yeah. and the numbers are astounding, aren't they? when you look at the police force, 53 police officers, only three of them, african-american,
11:08 pm
and then you look at the community there. 67%. 67% of the community there is african-american. the police force is not reflecting the make-up of the community. there. and it appears that there will be some changes there as you point out. >> yeah. there is one resident who told me this is a matter of time that they tension built up over years. that what we saw happen with the death of mike brown, it was the catalyst for something that had been bubbling and existing here for years. this is nothing new but this just took it over the edge. this tension here. and that there is a need for more of a diversity of more of a blending to make the police force match what the make-up of the town looks like. >> unfortunately, we remember in the wake. trayvon martin, they had a similar sense that perhaps this will begin and strike a dialogue and doesn't appear to have happened. it remains to be seen what will happen in ferguson, missouri.
11:09 pm
the country really paying attention. stephanie elam live for us throughout the evening. we appreciate that, stephanie. thank you. we will keep an eye on the developinging situation there. at there moment, we will look at some of the hours, other big stories around the world. >> we want to start in iraq. >> there was a gruesome video posted on line showing isis fighters beheading one american journalist and threatening the life of another. >> this came with a warning to the u.s. to end its airstrikes against isis targets in iraq. the video shows journalist james foley kneeling next to a man in black and reading a message presumably scripted by his captors. foley said his quote, real killer, is america. he is then heard saying, he wished he could see his family once again just before he was beheaded.
11:10 pm
absolutely heart wrenching video. cnn is deciding not to air any of it. the second journalist, you see him here, identified as steven sut lof. he was kidnapped last year. the jurn oolist says his fate depends on what the u.s. does next. gunman forced him into a vehicle in the turkish border. he wasn't seen or heard from until tuesday. >> james foley was a veteran war reporter who braved the world's hot spots and was no stranger to being kidnapped. james foley has been killed by members of the islamic state of iraq in sir why or isis. foley disappeared in northwest syria on thanksgiving day 2012. weeks later, his parents held a press conference outside their new hampshire home. pleading to his captors to release him. >> as james's father, i appeal to the people who have jim.
11:11 pm
>> to let us know where he is and to help us secure his release and to give us some information in terms of his welfare, his health. >> foley spent the previous five years reporting independently from the middle east. he faced deanger in the past. kidnapped with others in libya in 2011. held in a cell in tripoli, interrogated as war waged around them. after 44 days, foley was released and brought to this hotel where other western journalists were staying. >> especially toward the end, we started to hear the bombs coming closer and more frequently. >> he continued reporting in the region until he was captured again. foley was working on several stories when he was abducted, including one on the destruction of the anch ancient city of
11:12 pm
aleppo. he was 40 years old. his family said before becoming a journalist, foley worked with the disabled. as a teacher and mentor. >> meantime, james foley's mother, who of course must be having an absolutely difficult time and is grieving, obviously, publicly praising her son though. in a facebook posting she says, quote, we've never been prouder of our son, jim. he gave his life exposing the world to the suffering of the syrian people. >> she went on to say, we implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages like jim they are innocent. they have no control over american government policy in iraq, syria or anywhere else in the world. >> and people from foley's hometown of rochester new hampshire are reacting as well. take a look. >> you just feel sad. you just hope the family can grieve and deal with it, because
11:13 pm
this is something they can't control at all. >> this is tragedy beyond imagination. no words can describe this kind of inhumanity. >> the white house says president obama has been briefed on the graphic video and u.s. national security councilwoman said the intelligence community is now working as quickly as possible to determine its authenticity. she said, quote, if genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an american journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friend. >> all right. still to come here on our special coverage, we will head to the middle east with a lock at collapsed israel gaza troops. >> and this will sound very familiar. more rockets fired. more air strikes as a result. ne goe negotiations appear to have completely stopped. we will get you details on the other end of this break.
11:14 pm
11:15 pm
11:16 pm
welcome back, everyone. this is going to sound familiar. the middest east cease-fire has broken down once again with the prospects of a long term truce seeming as illusive as of. we've got this information just in to cnn. according to the israel defense forces, ten rockets have been fired from gaza into israel just in the past 60 minutes. that information just coming into us here at cnn and we also want to cross now to a live picture of gaza city whereat this moment it's just after 9:00 in the morning there, wednesday. things appear calm but as i just mentioned, earlier, we saw that this cease-fire has completely fallen apart. explosions like this. filled the night sky. israel launching some two dozen air strikes after hamas fired
11:17 pm
rockets towards israel. palestinian health ministry in gaza reports six more people killed now. all part of the same family. dozens more wounded. israel reports around 70 rockets fired from gaza in total, including one that landed in the jerusalem area. listen to this. >> this is what daily life looks and feels like for israelis. air raid sirens blared. bomb shelters reopened. you see people hunkering down, hugging one another. wondering if a random rocket is going to fall on them. israel blames hamas though for the broken truce. >> now today israel was scrupulously honoring the cease-fire as we have been over the last few days. in accordance with the egyptian request, and at about a quarter to 4:00 this afternoon local time we have rockets on israel. it was a direct and grave
11:18 pm
violation of the cease-fire. there was no excuse for it. no previous provocation. out of the blue. rockets, as you know, the capital, a city of some 200,000 people. >> now israel's delegation was ordered to leave cairo. that's where the indirect talks have been taking place. not clear if they completely ended talks or if some believe perhaps they are taking the most recent plan and peace plan suggestions back to israel. but meantime, everyone is still pointing fingers as about to show you, palestinian officials blame israel for the lack of progress. >> they had four rounds of talks and many hours of indirect negotiations. once again, israelis and palestinians have failed to reach an agreement. and this time they also fail to extend the all important
11:19 pm
cease-fire. so in many ways, they've gone backwards. now we enter a dangerous period of uncertainty where once again the stage is set for more fighting and more violence. the deadline came and went at midnight local time here in cairo. but even before the deadline palestinian officials telling cnn that the talks had been suspended indefinitely because the israeli delegation pulled out and left the negotiations. the palestinian officials also blaming the israelis for the failure of the talks suggestion that israelis were not here in cairo negotiating in earnest and in good faith. however, multiple palestinian officials telling cnn that there was an egyptian proposal on the table that looked like a compromise. a proposal where israel would agree to ease the blockade on gaza and in return the palestinians would agree not to address their demands for a sea port, airport, for another month. the palestinians say even that proposal that looked like a compromise was rejected by the
11:20 pm
israelis. we should stress we never got a chance to speak to the israelis here. i'm sure they have a different narrative. bottom line, talks failed. in many ways, egyptians as mediators failed. no indication as to when the two sides will be back if cairo negotiating again. cnn, cairo pch. >> want to brung you news out of pakistan now. thousands of antigovernment protesters there remain camped out today in the red zone. that's where all of the government buildings are located. these protesters in a bid to out of the prime minister. they want this man to resign over alleged election fraud. demonstrators actually we're seeing demonstrators there. demonstrators enter the high when secured government area monday and they threaten to paralyze the government. now demonstrations are led by a

welcome, everyone. rick perry, governor of the state of texas, and potential u.s. presidential candidate in 2016, is vowing to fight felony charges against him. now this is his mug shot. taken as he was booked on tuesday on the charges. they not clud an allegation we abused his office by withholding
11:24 pm
state funds for a program run by a county prosecutor. because he wanted her to resign. perry denies doing anything unlawful. listen. >> i'm going to fight this injustice with every fiber of my being. and we will prevail. >> perry is entering his final few months in office. after an historic 14-year run as texas governor. it is unclear how the latest felony charges might effect his possible presidential ambitions. well, if you are planning to fly across the atlantic soon, you will want to listen to this. icelandic officials are warning there's an increased risk. its volcano could erupt. that sparked fears of a repeat of the disastrous ash cloud four years ago. it grounded more than 100,000 flights and affected 10 million people. and jim bolden has the details on that.
11:25 pm
>> european travellers, be warned. seismic authorities in iceland have said that its largest volcano could erupt at any time. on monday, the area suffered its biggest earthquake since 1996. and molten lava is on the move. >> translator: the reason we are acting this way is one round of quakes is moving more than we have seen in a long time in this area. >> air travellers around the world were massively disrupted when another icelandic volcano spewed an ash cloud with glass-like fragments high into space. there were lights across northern europe for six days, stranding millions of passengers. some airlines were furious at the shutdown saying european authorities overreacted. >> causing problems for millions
11:26 pm
of passengers. the airlines were losing a lot of money because they couldn't fly. and the customer relations department said their lines were suffering because they were taking huge numbers of complaints and had no solution. >> it took days for airlines to get their planes and staff in the right places. travellers going to airports each day only to be told they had no seats. some had to vacate hotels as reservations ran out or credit cards did. ports and trains were swamped. rental cars abandoned after people drove them one way to get closer to home. and airlines from asia and north america could not fly in and out of northern europe either. >> airbus, boeing and some airlines carried out various tests since 2010. no one has been able to come up with a foolproof answer. a foolproof solution. on how to fly through ash. >> euro control said there has been significant changes since
11:27 pm
2010. better money toring of ash clouds. more coordination between countries. and the recognition that airlines should ultimately decide whether to fly or not. euro control says that should significantly reduce the number of flights that would have to be cancelled the next time there is an ash crisis. that promise could be tested within hours. jim boulden, cnn, london. >> all right. we want to take a very short break right now. but still ahead, anger in the streets of ferguson with vastly different takes on what's behind it all. and we will look at the racial divide over the unrest in missouri. do stay with us.

11:29 pm
11:30 pm
welcome back, everyone. glad you're still with us. >> thanks for watching here in the united states and all around the world. i wanted to bring you up-to-date on the headlines this hour. a night of peaceful protests in ferguson, missouri briefly turned into a tense
11:31 pm
confrontation just before midnight. police say several people started throwing bottles and authorities responded by clearing the crowd and make arrests. protesters are demanding justice in the death of michael brown and for the most part those protests were very peaceful. now the unarmed teenager was shot and killed by a police officer ten days ago and people want justice. >> an american journalist being beheaded by isis militants is posted on-line with a demand that u.s. military get out of iraq. james foley went missing in syria in 2012. isis says the fate of a second american journalist missing since last year depends on what the u.s. does next. >> israel's military says its launched 25 air strikes in gaza and blames hamas for the last cease-fire. militants now launched 70 rockets towards israel,
11:32 pm
including one near jerusalem that sent people running for cover. israeli negotiators left talks in cairo. oh, we do want to bring you up-to-date on what is happening in ferguson, missouri. let's cross off to steve who is on the scene there in ferguson. he joins us now live. steve, it has been quite a night. and for the most part, we want to emphasize this, protests have been peaceful. there is that moment there. i want you to go over what happened exactly to change the tone. >> and again we saw another night where the police tactics were different, were changed in some ways. but it began as an extremely peaceful night, a much more subdued night of protest and smaller night. there were fewer protesters out
11:33 pm
there, the crowd was about a quarter of the size of what it was the previous night. marching up and down the street in circles from one end to the other. throughout the night, for hours, peacefully. the police told us they would not let anybody stand around, that you had to keep walking and that's what happened. they even told the media we would not be allowed to stay in any one position for a period of time. for hours this was going on peacefully. as protesters became tired, more and more of them started dropping out of the march and before you knew it, we had crowds of people just milling about in the parking lots of the stores. a after a while, the number of people standing around in front of the stores, i presume was troubling to police. somebody gave the order to clear the parking lots. now, this is where it becomes tricky. the police officers throughout the evening were acting
11:34 pm
cordially. a row of police officers put on their riot gear. put on their helmets and held their shields. as soon as that happened, it elevated the tension between the police and protesters. people saw this line of police coming at them and immediately, you felt the change in the air. had those same police officers just walked into the crowd, politely saying, would you mind moving to the sidewalk, please, this may not have turned out the way it did tonight. so the people started backing up. there was a confrontation. community people got between the police and the protesters. and the police kept their distance. they showed restraint. for most of the night. they were letting the community members handle the crowd. and for the most part, while there was a lot of screaming back and forth, there was no interaction. suddenly, a water bottle came flying out of the crowd, soared over everyone's head and larnded around the police and that's
11:35 pm
when everything changed in a snap. the police took up a much more aggressive stance. several officers ran into the crowd to chase after whoever threw the pot el. they went running through ferguson, down the main drag and everybody started scattering and it became one chaotic mess. protesters mixed in with journalists. the police didn't know which way it turn. they were surrounded by protesters running. many police officers taking aggressive stances with their semiautomatic rifles drawn on us. so it was a very chaotic, confusing situation for a long time. most of the protesters went away. after that point, there were just a few dozen people mixed in with the media and the police were faced with this problem of having dozens of reporters cameramen, and crews standing there with protesters mixed in with them. and they had to somehow separate fwot. and that's how we woend up with the chaotic scenes you're seeing
11:36 pm
now. now we must say, tear gas, not used tonight. smoke, not used tonight. flash grenades, not used tonight. for the most part, police did not go hand on with the protesters until the very end. again, a change in tactics here again. one of the issues as we talk about police with multiple jurisdictions who never work together normally, coming together, they train differently throughout the year. they have different commanders. and suddenly, they are asked to work side by side in crowd control. something they don't normally do. and so i think that's what helps to cause some of the confusion as well. >> yeah. and as you point out, and we need to point out, this change of tone. this change of police tactics. we didn't, as you say, no tear gas, no rubble bullets, no stun grenade. i think we have spoken about these community leaders. they have been heroic in this situation, they have really
11:37 pm
helped change the tone here too. some thanks to you, steve. you were right in the thick of it there for a lot of the time. it is now much quieter there in ferguson, missouri. we appreciate you ing pripging us up-to-date on what the situation is. >> the whole team doing a fantastic job as you just saw the flu id situation unfold there live on cnn. now there appears to be calm in ferguson. attention moves toward tomorrow and the judicial system. will justice be served in the shooting of michael brown. a growing number of people are raising questions about st. louis county prosecuting attorney robert mccullough. you see, he is the man who would handle the potential case against darren wilson who shot and killed brown. you see the prosecutor here. critics say this man has a track record of ties with the police. here is brown's family attorney benjamin crump. >> it's about transparency. this community has distrust for
11:38 pm
the local law enforcement officials. and so if you have a secret grand jury proceeding where nobody knows what the prosecutor presents, and based on, as you said, the track record and history of some of the prior cases, and the grand jury come back ansaid, we find it justified him executing this kid in broad daylight, i think that will be very problematic for this community to accept. >> and missouri governor jay nickson says mccullough will stay on the case. this is despite calls from local leaders that he should recuse himself and simply step aside because of the mistrust of local leaders in his ability to be impartial. we will certainly keep a track on that part of the story. >> of course an undeniable part of the tension in ferguson revolves around race, right? as we know, the unrest started
11:39 pm
when a white policeman killed an unarmed black teen. >> but as we are about to show you, black and white americans have vastly different takes on what the shooting means for racial equality in the state. >>. >> reporter: for the past ten days, america's eyes have been trance fixed on these images. many questions and few answers about the death of michael brown. but opinions are taking shape. and the contrast between black and white have stark. >> i have to be very careful about not prejudging. >> president obama called for calm and caution. but according to a pew research poll of 1,000 adults, minds are made up. when asked if michael brown shooting raises important views of abuse in america, 37% of whites say yes.
11:40 pm
however, 80% of blacks. 65% of blacks say police have gone too far in respond together shooting's aftermath. that's in contrast to a third of white who are divided. 33% saying too much. 32% saying the response has been about right. and about the investigation itself into the killing of the unarmed 18-year-old, 52% of whites polled say they have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in the investigation. but among blacks, 76% saying they have little or no confidence in the investigation. these numbers paint a picture after deeply divided america and the fine line the president must walk as he bridges the gap between black and white. >> as americans, we have to use this moment to seek out our shared humanity that's been laid bay by this moment. >> cnn's nishelle turner reporting there. you can stay on top of the
11:41 pm
developing situation in ferguson any time you are away from your television at our website, >> some of the day's other news. >> the u.n. launches a massive aid unit to help victims of isis. more of this in moments.
11:42 pm
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
for more now on another major story we are following here on cnn. isis militants have beheaded an american journalist as a warning to the u.s. military to get out of iraq. journalist james foley is shown in an on-line video presumably being forced to say his quote real killer is america, just before he was beheaded. >> and the terror doesn't end there. the isis video also shows another american journalist, steven, kidnapped at the syria border last year. his life, quote, hangs in the balance, depending on whether u.s. president barack obama decides to pull out of iraq or not. nic robertson discussed the militant groups' motives earlier in our situation room. >> they've held these journalists, james isn't the only one, there are two other
11:45 pm
americans, one british, one from new zealand. they are holding them as bargaining trips. we do know the american government, british government, don't negotiate with terrorists. and certainly don't ever pay ransoms to terrorists. again, we dent know why some of these other journalist have been released an what gez on behind the scenes there. but this speaks to isis using these people as bargaining chips to try to get what it wants. and right now it wants the united states off its back. the united states is showing itself in iraq around mosul, heading isis targets there, to free up that key strategic dam, and isis -- >> yes. >> with airstrikes and isis is feeling the heat. this is the way they will fire back. and if we continue in this vein, which we will, we expect isis to continue to parade before us this brazen want and horrific -- there's no word to describe it,
11:46 pm
brutal -- pick your word, it's horrible. this is unrelenting so far. >> nic robertson explaining this might be retaliation for isis militant losing the mosul dam. no word yet on any response. the intelligence community still trying to authenticate that video. >> today the refugee agency is launching a massive relief effort to help the nearly half a million people displaced in northern iraq. now they are running from the bloody isis campaign to convert or kill those who don't share the group's radical view of islam. the ten-day operation will include air lifts from jordan, road convoyes from turkey and jordan and sea and land shipments from dubai through iran. >> this is a major logistical
11:47 pm
operation. this is one of the biggest aid pushes with he have been involved in. hopefully the first floits tomorrow from jordan, carrying tents, kitchen utensils, basic aid for people. that is to be followed by aid convoys from turkey, from jordan itself through iran from dubai. and some aid coming from damascus. >> some of the sunni militants most vicious attacks have fallen on iraq's militia minority. tens of thousands fled, but many did not have the chance. >> reporter: these faces are all that we can still see of the village of kojo in to which isis swept, abducting, murdering
11:48 pm
possibly dozens. few survivors have spoken. but when isis swept in, they ordered the town to become muslim. but nobody would. so they herded them into a school. the men were drive yn in trucks to the outskirts, lined up an shot. hit three times, remarkably escaped. isis held on to the women and children alive. his wife, daughter, two sons, and 85-year-old mother, now their possessions. they're monsters, he says. i have no idea what they can do to them, especially the young. >> they have arrived here. refugees in this construction. but so many of the people have very little to even prove who they are, let alone what they say happen there. while isis control that village, it is their testimony that is the only real evidence of what happened there.
11:49 pm
