10:00 pm
opened up korean culture to the world. >> what does it mean to be korean-american? does one create one's own world? i don't know that i'm any smarter about that now than when i first came to k-town in the middle of the night to discover a strange and fabulous and delicious slice of america i had never known was there, but i'm trying to figure it out. you've watching the live coverage o. aftermath of the boston bombings. >> we'll get a live update of the suspect as he lies in stable condition in a boston hospital. >> we'll look at possible links. >> we'll also be live at the
10:01 pm
epicenter. >> let's start at boston where it's 1:00 in the morning. investigators believe dzhokhar was carrying out attacks. authorities have not said what charges will be filed but he will face federal terrorism charges and state murder charges. the 19-year-old remains in serious but stable conditions. he's got a one shot wound to the side of the neck and is breathing through a tube. >> officials are trying to find out whether the two had accomplices. they may have bought their bomb parts locally but their guns came from elsewhere.
10:02 pm
boston's police commissioner says he believes the tsarnaev's performed major roles in last week's double bombing. >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i'm very sure we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. the two people who are committing these vicious attacks are either dead or arrested. i still believe that. >> there were devices unexploded found at the original scene. >> which scene in. >> on the marathon route? >> no. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene so everything was treated suspiciously. bombers often target first responders. we were expecting another
10:03 pm
device. the suspected bomber is captured himself in a boston hospital. elizabeth cohen joins us now. good to have you with us. as far as we know has there been any change in dzhokhar's condition since he was admitted to that hospital? >> reporter: no. we've been told this whole time he's in serious condition. we've been told by sources that he's intubated and sedated. when you do this you sedate them to the point they're asleep and not able to communicate. you can take them out of that
10:04 pm
quite easy. you just decrease the amount through iv and they would be able to communicate by writing on a note pad. >> we don't know if authorities will be able to question the individual. people questioning the prognosis of the suspect. what are you hearing as you talk to medical experts? >> reporter: he would be completely out of it as a doctor put it. not a doctor here but in another city. it's not usual for doctors to give sedation holidays to patients intubated. they want to talk to the patient
10:05 pm
and test some neurological functions. see if he can respond to commands. they could take his sedation away or decrease it. we've not been told if they have done this with him. we've not been told they put him on one of these sedation holidays. >> what are you hearing about the 55 people's recovery? we appear to be having some technical problems. she doesn't appear to be able to hear me. we're going to continue to check in on the condition of that suspect and the 55 victims
10:06 pm
remain in hospital at this time. >> police think the brothers were planning more attacks. they tried to answer a question question. did they have help? barbara starr has the latest on that. >> reporter: they're uncle said he believe others must have influenced the older brother. >> how possibly could he get involved and do this harm to innocent people? >> reporter: senior u.s. officials tell cnn there's no solid evidence of a direct link between the brothers and international terrorist groups.
10:07 pm
the fbi was asked to check out tamerlan because that country thought he was a follower of radical islam and he changed drastically. the fbi interviewed him but found no evidence of communication with radical groups. the other government didn't provide more information even when asked. after running home he created this you tube channel including videos with radical preachers. there's no way to be sure if he posted the material himself. >> i think what you're seeing with this particular phenomenon
10:08 pm
is a self-radicalization process that's occurred as these two young men try to figure out who they are. >> reporter: just one problem. how did the problems learn to make and detonate two bombs almost simultaneously, something that's not easy to do. >> it suggests practice in the united states or training elsewhere or both. >> you can read a recipe online about how to make a bomb but these two brothers made and d t denated the bombs almost simultaneously. barbara starr, cnn, pentagon. >> should he have been read his rights? should he be treated as an enemy combatant as some are saying.
10:09 pm
let's start with one fact. c dzhokhar is the most famous. >> he's unable to speak. obviously the police aren't able to move forward with the process to find out how much he knows. he's not been read his miranda rights. people are familiar with what mie ran da means. when ever the police arrest somebody stla to tell them that they have the riepght to remain silent and anything they say can be used against them in court. that i plies when there's an
10:10 pm
immediate threat to the public safety or the offers doing t interrogation. you pointed out there's suspicions and maybe accomplices. we don't know if there were other devices. certainly the fi by is remieing on a lot of what we know. >> you've cut to the very heart of the first and maybe biggest controversy is whether he should be read his rights or encouraged to speak as freely as possible without an attorney present. that's the other part of the miranda proses. the part that you have the right to an attorney. they don't particularly want him to have an attorney right now. >> mie ran y rairanda was invok
10:11 pm
protect rights. it can impede an investigation but it's to provide personalization and due process. the supreme court was careful in 1984 to charve out this exception to that says if there's an immediate threat, you don't have to interrupt your questioning in order to get to the bottom of the threat. if there's a loose again, accomplices. for example who may be plotting everything else. then the police don't have to stop trying to get that very valuable information in order to mirandize pem thp there's also a question of what is an immediate west. in 2011, the justice department
10:12 pm
has called for been expansion of the rule. the government should have the right to proceed. we're seeing an expansion of the public safety rule and whether or not it proper lly applies or doesn't apply is something i'm sure tsarnaev's lawyers will be asked about down the road. >> who are his lawyers likely to be? >> reporter: thairp prepare and ready to take the case. i don't have any information about his resources. he's not in a position to communicate with authorities or be responsive. it may be shortly his doctors and those providing the medical treatment may reduce the
10:13 pm
sedation so he can be responsive. we don't know much about who will depends him. >> there's some question about reading his rights to him. there's a question about whether he should be entering the court system. there's all kinds of questions that pre-date this case about how the united states deal with suspected terrorists. how much of a debate are we going to see parallel to this court case. it's the united states opening a whole new can of worms because of dzhokhar. >> the can has been open for quite some time. it's been invoked very resently
10:14 pm
by the government. those are both cases where the goth says we're not going to give you your miranda rights before you give us information that mieg protect us and the public. the whole terrorist conversation does open up a whole legal -- it's a quad mire. here are folks that are bound and determined to do very damgs things and injure a lot of innocent people. noims they are holding back information so the plat can carry ford. swrep the constitution that's intended to protect people who do bad things. >> a terrible crime. thanks very much. we'll have more on the bombings.

international atomic energy agency inspecting the facility and recrew viewing the clean up process. the visit comes amid reports that large amount of radio active water has been leaking from the plant. >> three reactors at the fukushima plant melted down after that devastating earthquake back in 2011. we're joined from japan with the latest. the cleanup process has been slow going and it's throwing up all sorts of problems.
10:42 pm
>> reporter: yes. this decommissioning process will take 30 or 40 years tepco says. the local government had been busy with more pressing clean up issues. it was the nuclear accident which has made lasting damage on the life of this small fishing community. let's take a listen. it's a huge catch for a tiny boat. the fish flap ant on the deck. by the time we're back at the port there's little movement. today's catch would have been worth $3,000 u.s. all they can do with them is sort out the biggest varieties
10:43 pm
and send them off to the lab for testing. they can sell none of this like throwing away money the fishermen say. we can't put them on the market. there's nothing we can do. wrecked boats litter the harbor still years after the tsunami. a waste land where buildings once stood. it was the nuclear disaster 30 kilometers north which destroyed these men's livelihoods. they released straight into the ocean by tepco plant operator. two years on the fishermen are frustrated to hear of further leaks. tepco says they will dig a whole right in front of the reactor building and throw that into the ground.
10:44 pm
what's happened now is there's a leak so that ground water won't be clean. one of the many problems is that ground water is leaking into the damaged reactor buildings. 400 cubic meters a day. that water gets contaminated too and all of it needs to be stored somewhere. leaks in the underground reservoir system means tepco has to resort to tanks, 80% have full. last week inspectors examined the site to check on the decommissioning site. tepco says would make the contaminated water safe enough to release and a pumping system to lower the water level so it won't seep into the reactors.
10:45 pm
these men lost their faith in tepco a long time ago. they always say it's all right. it always turns out they're not telling the truth. if you ask if i believe them, i don't. it will be a long time before the market regains faith. >> there are 41 types of fish that are banned from being sold from the waters around pufukusha and many have radiation levels below safety standards. the very forecast they coact th these waters and they prove unsafe it means they are keeping
10:46 pm
that ban on. >> how confident are they that they can sprent another accident from happening? >> there's so many unknowns with this whole decommissioning process. you really get a sense especially with this litany of problems that tepco is feeling its way here. it's stuck deep inside somewhere where no human and no robot can even get to it. that's why you have international experts all around the world trying to work out how to keep that fuel debris cool and how to make it safe.
10:47 pm
that's why it will take a long time. it was o power outage that stopped the cooling system around the plant that led to meltdown. those kinds of reports just make people in japan who are fed up with the mistakes even more concerned that tepco has what it takes to make sure the process can be saved. >> the mind boggles when you hear a rat was able to short circuit the system. no comparison. an earthquake has struck central mexico near the coast. residents 300 kilometers way
