this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> o'donnell: good evening. scott is off tonight. i'm norah o'donnell. this is our western edition. the assault was sudden and violent, and within moments the campus of ohio state university with 60,000 students was locked down. 11 people were hurt when a student from somalia attacked with a car and then a knife in what is being investigated as an act of terror. a police officer shot and killed the suspect. dean reynolds has the latest, and he's in columbus. >> additional units to the area of 19th and college. we have several pedestrians struck by a vehicle. >> reporter: the time on the ohio state campus was 9:52 a.m. and a clutch of students and teachers had assembled outside because a building fire alarm sounded. they were easy targets for man who drove his honda civic on to the sidewalk and into them, then got out and slashed as many onlookers as he could with a butcher knife.
>> i need medics at the mcqueen lab as soon as possible. all patients are alert and oriented, but severe bleeding out of some of them. >> reporter: the attacker was identified as a student at o.s.u., somali born abdul razak ji artan. joseph noll, a junior at o.s.u., was on the street a few feet away. >> i heard a bunch of screaming. i took my headphones out, and all these people were rushing over this way. at first i thought it was some sort of game or something until i could see everyone's faces. >> reporter: what did their okces look like? >> they were terrified. >> reporter: campus police were already on the scene investigating a gas leak that triggered that fire alarm, and hficer alan harougeko took action. >> we got one down critical here. >> the shooter is in custody. >> reporter: ohio state's chief of police is craig stone. >> our officer was on scene ntthin less than a minute. he entered the situation in less than a minute. he engaged the suspect and eliminated the threat.
the suspect is d.o.a. >> reporter: as the events unfolded, the students sent out alerts to students in unmistakable terms -- run, hide, fight, key instructions used in campus-wide training to indicate an active threat. the response was immediate as students barricaded themselves in classrooms while waiting about two hours for the all clear. lt people, including students and faculty, were hurt, and one of them is in critical condition tonight. some were injured in the car crash, norah while others suffered lacerations in the knife attack. >> o'donnell: all right, dean reynolds, thank you so much. the question now is what do we know about the suspect. jeff pegues has that part of the story. >> reporter: the man behind today's attack at ohio state university was a new student. officials say abdul razak ali artan came to the u.s. with six family members in 2014 after fleeing somalia and spending
seven years in a refugee camp in pakistan. artan attended community college in columbus before transferring to ohio state this year. on his first day in august, artan was interviewed by the campus paper. he complained about what he believed was the media's negative portrayal of muslims. "i wanted to pray in the open," he was quoted as saying, "but i was scared because of what they were saying in the media. if people look at me, a muslim praying, i don't know what they're going to think, what's going to happen." law enforcement is investigating the incident as a likely terror attack. they have searched the car the suspect was driving as well as an apartment complex. terrorist groups like al qaeda and isis have been encouraging supporters to carry out lone wolf attacks. crrlier this month the f.b.i. renewed its warnings to police agencies across the country tyout the potential for home- grown violent extremist activity targeting civilians in crowded venues.
a law enforcement source told cbs news that artan recently posted on facebook that he was sick about the way muslims were being treated. norah, these simple and hard-to- stop attacks are exactly what concerns police. t, o'donnell: all right, jeff pegues, thank you. turning now to our other top story, reaction in cuba and the u.s. to the death of fidel castro. charlie rose is in havana tonight. good evening, charlie. >> reporter: good evening, norah. thank you so much. ua're in revolution square where hundreds of thousands of people have lined up to pay their final respects to the man who ruled this country for nearly 50 years. although he turned over power to his younger brother raul nearly ten years ago, fidel castro remained the heart and soul of the communist revolution. here's manuel bojorquez. >> reporter: the lines of mourners began to form before the sun rose. as the day wore on, some were overcome by emotion, others by hours spent waiting in the hot sun.
all were drawn to havana's revolution square to pay respect to the outsized leader who changed their country. >> ( translated ): the father is gone, the father of cuba. >> reporter: for nearly 50 years fidel castro's booming voice echoed throughout this plaza as he delivered impassioned speeches meant to rally his supporters. now it's strangely quiet as thousands upon thousands say farewell. inside some mourners wept as they walked by photographs of edstro flanked by his military medal, flowers and guards. his ashes lay in a private room out of the public view. no norma diaz was too emotional to talk, that is until we asked how the world will view her weeping over man many considered a brutal dictator. >> ( translated ): let them tell the story they know. we can only tell the story we know. he was always with the people.
>> reporter: angel cortez dismissed the exiles of those to miami. what do you say to them? "that they're insensitive," he says, "that they have no feelings." if it's any indication of castro's stature here, some people have deemed this event a commemoration of the "physical departure of their leader." charlie, they rarely use the word "death" when it comes to castro. >> reporter: manny, thank you so much. s coincidence, commercial flights resume today from new york to havana, the first in more than half a century. american airlines flight 17 from miami arrived to a water cannon salute. many of the passengers cuban- american. some visiting cuba for the first time. their welcome was more subdued than it might have been, music and celebrations are prohibited during the mourning for fidel castro. tat's in contrast to the scene in miami's little havana.
david begnaud is there. >> reporter: charlie, when news first broke that castro had hied, it turned into something of a street party right here in front of café versailles, which is the well-known gathering place for cuban-americans. this weekend more than 3,000 people celebrated peacefully. [horns honking] t. this is it. the icon is gone. hopefully everything is going to change. >> reporter: fernando hernandez was one of 14,000 children who came to the u.s. between 1960 and 1962 during operation pedro pan. fearing castro, parents sent them here hoping life would be better. >> i am eternally grateful to my parents for putting me on my plane to come here. i am very happy about that. >> reporter: for some cuban- americans, like chuny montanero, castro's death is bitter sweet. her exiled mother didn't live to see the day. >> i am happy and i came to share this moment with my mom.
>> reporter: it is so personal for these people we've spoken to g that it's bringing up these old, painful memories. the crowds we saw over the weekend are gone, the roads are open again, but, charlie, we're hearing that cuban exiles are planning what's being called massive pro democracy rally for this wednesday in miami. >> rose: thanks, david. today the white house said neither president obama nor vice president biden will attend fidel castro's funeral. roll be back later with closing thoughts from havana. now let's go back the norah o'donnell with the rest of the day's news. >> o'donnell: charlie, thank you so much. president-elect donald trump warned on twitter today that he will terminate president obama's deal with cuba to normalize relations if cuba doesn't make a better deal with its own people. mr. trump spent the day weighing his choices for secretary of state. here's major garrett. >> it's going to be a busy week. get ready. buckle up.
>> reporter: vice president- elect mike pence's promise went unfulfilled today as president- elect donald trump continued to ponder his choice for secretary of state. retired general and former c.i.a. director david petraeus rlt with mr. trump for nearly an hour. >> he basically walked us around the world, showed a great grasp of a variety of the challenges that are out there, and some of the opportunities, as well. so very good conversation, and we'll see where it goes from here. >> reporter: petraeus' stock is rising. after the meeting, the president-elect tweeted, "very impressed." but rudy giuliani remains a contender and romney, a titan never-trump voice during the campaign, will meet with mr. trump for a second time tomorrow. romney's viability con found top aiump advisers, chiefly campaign manager kellyanne conway. >> we don't even know if he voted for donald trump. he and his consultants were nothing but awful to donald trump for a year. >> reporter: the consensus among transition insiders is that
conway is channeling the president-elect, not crossing him, adding to the intrigue, norah, senate foreign relations committee chairman bob corker will also meet with mr. trump tomorrow to discuss secretary of state. >> o'donnell: the plot thickens. major, thank you so much. today mr. trump was certified as the winner in michigan. that's one of three states where a third-party candidate is seeking a recount. but will this make any difference? nancy cordes takes a look. >> we're going to look back when this recount is completed and find that the system worked well. >> reporter: the wisconsin elections commission set a time line today to re-examine every ballot and test all the voting equipment after green party candidate jill stein raised nearly $7 million to pay for a recount there, in michigan and in pennsylvania. >> hacking is by nature not obvious, so the only way you can tell is by counting the votes. >> reporter: hillary clinton's team says it has found no evidence of manipulation of result, but will participate in
the recount anyway out of "obligation to the more than 64 million americans who cast ballots for clinton." mr. trump's incoming chief of staff reince priebus denounced the move. >> i think the american people know this is a waste of everyone's time and money, and it's only to divide this country. >> reporter: but mr. trump stepped on that message when he suggested there was massive vote tampering. he says he only lost the popular vote because of millions of people who voted illegally due to serious voter fraud in virginia, new hampshire, and california, a false charge he appeared to pick up from a conspiracy web site. >> we have seen no evidence supporting any of these claims. >> reporter: alex padilla is california's secretary of state. >> to simply allege millions of illegal votes throughout the country or in a particular list of states, including california, i think is wrong, and we have to call him on it. >> reporter: wisconsin's recount
will take about two weeks. the bar for stein to secure recounts in michigan and pennsylvania is higher. she'll need to show, for example, some evidence that hacking took place, and so far there isn't any. >> o'donnell: nancy cordes, nnank you so much. delta air lines today banned for life a disruptive passenger who shouted his support for president-elect trump and insulted those who didn't. >> you can't hear me? donald trump, baby! that's right. anot man knows what's up. >> o'donnell: another passenger on the flight to allentown, pennsylvania, posted the video. no one on the flight crew intervened and delta has apologized and offered refunds to the passengers. in syria today, thousands fled aleppo after government forces captured large portions of the city from rebel fighters. this could be a turning point in syria's five and a half-year-old civil war. >> reporter: three months of
non-stop shelling and bombing finally paid off for syria's army, its allies and its russian backers. troops punched into rebel controlled eastern aleppo on the weekend, and now control 40% of ine territory held by the opposition since 2012. stl day civilians have been streaming out of the battle zone. today regime and russian soldiers who for weeks have been attacking their homes instead offered the refugees bus transport away from danger. and desperately needed food. intima akil says she hasn't eaten in three days, not even bread. another woman fled with her dead iether in a wheelchair. "my mother died of hunger," she says. "we've had very little to eat or drink in five months." [machine-gun fire] as syrian allies press forward, there is no solid information on how many
people have escaped into government territory, but it's a fraction of eastern aleppo's roughly 200,000 people. there are reports from aleppo tonight that many of them are actually fleeing the syrian army's offensive and heading deeper into rebel territory, which means, norah, there's more fighting and bloodshed ahead. >> o'donnell: all right, elizabeth palmer, thank you so much. coming up next on the "cbs evening news," fake apps take the joy out of holiday shopping. and later the baby who amazingly survived a terrifying crash. o amazingly survived a terrifying crash. my belly pain and constipation? they keep telling me "drink more water."

>> rose: i've been here a number of times. it's a city of music. it's almost a festival itmosphere here. this time it was different. people were in the streets, subdued, talking to each other but quietly. a couple reasons for that i think, because fidel castro has been part of their life for a long time, nearly 50 years in thwer. secondly, those who want to oppose him and feel strongly against him are rather reticent to be speaking out at this time. you have to remember that for many he's the only leader that they have known, and so there is a sense of quiet respect for that. >> o'donnell: and an end of an era and change is coming. charlie rose in havana tonight. thank you, charlie. that is the "cbs evening news." for scott pelley, i'm norah o'donnell. charlie and i will see you tomorrow right back here for "cbs this morning." captioning sponsored by cbs captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org
