approached by kim kei jong. he started shouting the maneuvers between the u.s. and south korea must stop. this is the report. he then assaulted the ambassador. as you say, the ambassador receiving some very very nasty wounds indeed. not life threatening. a gash to the right side of his face and a gash to his left forearm. needing 80 stitches in the facial wound. he is able to walk from that room. the assailant was wrestled to the ground at the meeting by people. mr. lippert was able to walk to a car. he was taken to hospital. he is still in hospital. he is expected to be there for a couple more days. if the facial wound was deeper it could have been life threatening. kim kei jong has a previous
conviction. he was given a two-year suspended sentence in 2010 after he threw a lump of concrete at the japanese ambassador to the south korean republican. there is some indication there of this man's motives. he is also stated as a person of unpredictable behavior. mr. lippert putting on a brave face. he tweeted not that long ago from the hospital bed. he hasn't lost his sense of humor. he tweeted on behalf of himself, his wife and son and dog. in the tweet, he said he is deeply moved by the support he had gotten from the people of south korea. i will be back asap to advance u.s.-rok alliance. the wording is let's work together. he is a man ready to get back on the job. he has been contacted by the u.s. president. they are close, those two, john. the president making sure he is
okay. >> mark lippert had been a long-time supporter of president obama. worked in his senate office. andrew stevens, thank you. i appreciate it. we wish the ambassador a speedy recovery. >> we hope they look at security. when you think of the ambassadors and diplomats around the world. four minutes past the hour. overnight storm slamming much of the nation. up to another foot of snow expected from texas to the northeast. nearly 90 million people under a winter watch or warning or advisory. >> the weather having a serious impact on travel. look at that board. ugly. cancellations everywhere. more than 2,000 flights already canceled today. that number is going to go up look at the situation outside boston. maybe not as bad as they feared. still bad enough considering that more than 8 feet of snow has already fallen there. they are two inches away from setting an all-time record. this is what it looked like in fall river massachusetts. you can see the weight of all
that snow and water on roofs. the collapsed roof at the shell station. snow and ice paving the roads in ohio. it made for a messy travel when snow started falling overnight. cars stuck in the street. some people forced to push their vehicle off the road. >> sleet, heavy snow in southern indiana. you can see it right there. forecasters say up to a foot of new snow could be on the ground there by this morning. schools have been shutdown. businesses closed. man. >> west virginia has severe weather and it is prompting allegean emergency declaration. the latest storm could dump up to 8 inches of snow on that state. >> virginia dealing with dangerous flood conditions. the snow and all that is melting and heavy rains. a lot of the state is under water. emergency responders using rafts to try to rescue people trapped. how bad will this thing get? meteorologist derek van dam is tracking it for us.
>> john and christine, consider in that over 90 million americans are under a watch, warning or advisory you can imagine this is going to somehow negatively impact thursday's commute. look how expansive this storm is from mexico to texas through the mid-atlantic states. a temperature contrast with the cold front as well. very warm moist air across the southeastern u.s. that cutoff across the tennessee river valley. of course cold enough for all snowfall to the north near louisville, kentucky. temperatures range in the lower 20s. to the mid-20s. the ice potential today, not looking too good for the i-40 corridor. stretching anywhere from mississippi through tennessee and all the way to west virginia. we have the possibility of .25 to .50 of ice. we have up to a foot of snow in some locations. lesser amounts for new york city and the nation's capital. look at the temperature
contrast. louisville kentucky through jacksonville florida. new york city your temperatures are taking a nose dive as well. back to you. thank you, derek. the family of the unarmed black teen whose death setoff days of unrest in ferguson. we will hear their reaction to a justice department decision not to bring criminal charges against the officer who shot their son michael brown. brown's family will have something to say about the justice department report. 102 pages. a document details discrimination against african-americans in the city of ferguson and by the city and by the police department. cnn's sara sidner is in ferguson with the latest. >> reporter: ferguson mayor responding to the scathing report by the department of justice. the doj highlighting blacks during traffic stops and arrests and tickets. the doj says it seems the
department and city were more concerned about gets revenue than about public safety and that black folks paid the highest price. >> a community where local authorities consistently approached law enforcement, not as a means of protecting public safety but as a way to generate revenue. a community where both policing and municipal court practices were found to be disproportionately harmful to african-american residents. >> reporter: the population is 67% black, at least 85% of those who were pulled over for traffic violations arrested or ticketed were black. the department of justice pointing out it is the toxic background that was around and helped create what happened after michael brown was killed by officer darren wilson. the doj did not find enough evidence to charge darren wilson with any civil rights violations. he was not indicted by a grand jury either. however, the police chief and
some others inside of that department may have to pay the piper. the doj talking about e-mails, including racist e-mails sent by the department. we do now know that the mayor has responded to those who have sent those e-mails. >> this type of behavior will not be tolerated in the ferguson police department or any department in the city of ferguson. immediately upon leaving that meeting, the three individuals were placed on administrative leave pending investigation. one has since been terminated. >> reporter: a source close to the investigation said the two others on leave will no longer work for the department. john. sara sidner thank you. breaking overnight, hillary clinton calling for the release of her state department e-mails. this comes after the e-mails were subpoenaed by a house committee investigating the attack on the consulate in benghazi. the former secretary of state tweeted this in the dead of night. i want the public to see my e-mail. i asked the state to release
them. they will review them for release as soon as possible. republicans also subpoenaed e-mails that mrs. clinton stored on a private server on operated out of her new york home. the state department is looking into mrs. clinton's use of the personal e-mail account. she did not have a state department e-mail account when she served. secretary of state john kerry arriving in saudi arabia off the latest round of nuclear talk was iran. he is there to ease concerns. those in sunni saudi arabia are nervous about any deal with the shi'ite arabians. kerry is expected to discuss the unrest in yemen with the king salman. the white house is warning the supreme court that the fate of health care for millions of americans is in its hands this morning. the justices heard arguments on the meaning of the four-word clause that has the potential to undo a huge part of obamacare. the white house is trying to
make sure the court is clear on the stakes. >> we would see millions of people lose their health insurance. we would see prices would likely go through the roof and there's not a lot frankly the government can do about it other than congress passing legislation to fix it. >> cnn's pamela brown has more from washington. >> reporter: good morning, john. it was a sharply divided court along ideological lines during the latest affordable care act oral arguments. what happened here is important. the stakes are very high. if the justices rule in favor of the plaintiffs it could derail the affordable care act. you have to look at the law as a whole and context. you cannot look at the four words at the center of the debate established by the state. the justices said it would be a
death spiral if subsidies were taken away from americans in the 34 states with the federally run exchange. on the other side the conservative justices says it focused on the four words established by the state. it makes it clear that is what the law intended. it did not intend for people in the state was federally run exchange for subsidy. chief justice roberts did not have a lot to say. as we know he upheld the constitutionality of the affordable care act years ago. all eyes were on him to see which direction he was leaning. he did not want to tip his hand. ultimately it could come down to his vote or justice kennedy. he was asking questions favorable to both sides. it remains a mystery as to how the justices are going to rule and it is bound to be a close
case. pamela thank you. time for an early start on your money. asian stocks mostly lower. china lowered the growth target from 7.5% to 7%. that is still pretty good. that's not as much as the world expected. european shares are optimistic. waiting to hear from the european central bank. u.s. stock futures barely moving right now. we will see if the stocks can break the two-day losing streak. s&p pulling back. we are in the middle here of the six-year bull run has that been remarkable. coming soon to wall street. homemade crafts and jewelry. online marketplace etsy filed the ipo yesterday. hoping to raise $100 million. 1.4 million people use the web site. etsy does not make a profit. it is a brand that maybe you heard about. >> all of my jewelry, i make
from etsy. i'm heavily bejewelled. 13 minutes after the hour. we know the defense strategy to save accused boston marathon suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev. we have that next. this is jim. a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move.
jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding,
unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. when laquinta.com sends craig wilson a ready for you alert the second his room is ready, ya know what he becomes? great proposal! let'stalk more over

the defense made their opening statements conceding to the vast majority of the facts of the case. yes, in fact their client, the defendant dzhokhar tsarnaev was the man behind the attack. the case they will make the place they differ from the argument being made by the federal government is what motivated dzhokhar tsarnaev. they say this is a young man preyed upon by his older brother. the mastermind of the plot. this is trying to build measure for sympathy for tsarnaev. they feel that is key for the sentencing phase of the trial and if the jurors could choose the death sentence here. >> very hard for the families there. a 17-year-old virginia student accused of being a recruiter for isis. the unidentified teen was taken into custody last week. he is charged as a juvenile but prosecutors want him tried as an
adult. the suspect helped a man travel to syria where it is believed he successfully joined isis. in a separate case a california man trying to board a plane for turkey with a fake passport. more testimony on the stand today for the trial of former nfl star aaron hernandez. the judge ruled evidence hernandez was involved in a shooting with a friend in florida a few months before odin lloyd was killed. that evidence would not be admissible in the case. hernandez is accused of shooting odin lloyd fatally in 2013. he is back. i'm talking about the most significant new york yankee of the last decade. he is back in uniform. he saw his first game action in more than a year. andy scholes will have all of the glorifying details in the bleacher report next.

that video aimed at including recruits to join isis in the fight. senior correspondent nic robertson following the latest for us. nic. >> reporter: the latest from the front is that it is going relatively well. villages have been taken. tikrit not just strategically important, but because it is to the north of mosul. it is if you will the part of the government would see the sunni resistance against the government. this is the birth place of the former president saddam hussein. it is important on many levels. they are saying they are attacks from five sides. the tribe getting isis from getting in. the potential of problems of ieds. i think if we look at the recent track record of the iraqi army taking quite an amount of time to take a percentage of that
