>> the whole world is watching, yeah. >> watching and hoping. as it turns out, these are waters of destiny indeed. hillary clinton becomes the first democrat to throw her hat in the ring in the 2016 race for president of the united states. pope francis is accused of inciti inciting hatred. at 21 years old, jordan spieth has pulled off one of the greatest golf wins in history and has the green jacket to prove it. hello, and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. kicking off your week with us for the next two hours, i'm errol barnett. >> i'm rosemary church. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom."
11:01 pm
former u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is on a roadtrip right now, in fact, to kick off her 2016 presidential campaign. >> clinton announced her run on social media saying she want to be america's champion. then her small convoy began a 1,600-kilometer roadtrip to iowa. clinton there meeting with potential voters like the folks you see here at a pennsylvania gas station. >> so i'm hitting the road to earn your vote because it's your time, and i hope you'll join me this journey. >> clinton will be passing through ohio, indiana, and illinois before she gets to iowa. iowa is, of course, a state that makes or breaks presidential candidates. >> she's already so well known among people in the u.s. and around the world. a major part of her strategy is to reintroduce herself to voters. our senior washington
11:02 pm
correspondent, joe johns, is in iowa more. >> reporter: we expect hillary clinton to come here to iowa very early in the week. we expect small meeting, not unlike her new york listening tour in the year 2000 when she was running for the senate. we don't expect large events here in iowa, at least at first. she's also expected to go to new hampshire, another early voting state. it's clear that aides for mrs. clinton have been in both of these states. they will be attempting to highlight what they see as her strengths including her humor, wit, and staying away from thenesian this campaign is all about her. her video campaign announcement focuses on the people and their needs, aligning herself with voters. what does she need to do to win in iowa? talking to voter last night, they say it's a time for her to connect with them. to meet face to face with them because as everyone knows, she's considered by many to be an
11:03 pm
international celebrity. she comes with an entourage. the secret service follows her wherever she goes. the challenge for mrs. clinton will be to go small even if that is possible. what are people saying about her? the very first democratic voter i spoke to the ound here said she was incline -- on the ground here said she was inclined to vote for hillary clinton but was troubled by the former secretary of state's private e-mail server issues in the private job. it looks like a lack of transparency, openness. some of the polls suggesting this may have hurt mrs. clinton. though it is still too early to say because polls aren't necessarily relevant in a primary. strategists say she needs to show she can take punches in the political arena and come out swinging effectively. support verse said one of the big things you have to do in politics is learn from mistakes. hillary clinton, though, no someone talking about it, had
11:04 pm
mistakes in 2008. she did not get off to a good start. she was out-organized by barack obama. the question, can she connect with voters this time around? joe johns, cnn, des moines, iowa. now the good news for clinton is that a cnn/orc poll puts her ahead of other potential contenders for the democratic nomination. you see it here. she has some of the strongest support of any non-incumbent presidential candidate in recent memory. the poll which was done last month puts clinton on top. you see there, 62%. u.s. vice president joe biden is a distant second at 15%. not sure if it anything to do with his many gaffes. senator warren of massachusetts in 10th place. she unexists she's not running. >> the worst-kept political
11:05 pm
secret is out. hillary clinton has launched her 2016 presidential bid. what was your reaction to the video aimed at the middle class? so how that going to work forrer? >> you've gotten more information out of today's than you might have expected, the announcement. it gave you a couple of signals. one, she's trying to recede somewhat, make this less about her, more about the voters. that was the clear message of the video. and also the video really reflected the nature of the changing democratic coalition. the demographic, cultural change in the u.s., guy couples, voters of all races. it really was a reflection of the modern democratic coalition that she's hoping will put her in the white house. i think you got an indication of who she wants to run or who she expects to elect if she wins. >> clinton travels to the early voting states of iowa and new hampshire to make her case. she came in third in iowa in 2008 and doesn't appear to be taking anything for granted,
11:06 pm
does she? how is she likely to go in the two states? is it too early to gauge that? >> voters don't like a coronation. there may be room for someone to get in and cause some turbulence. on the other hand, given how weak democrats are in the senate, house, governorships, states legislatures, there's an enormous amount of anxiety among the leadership and establishment about losing the white house in 2016. they are all going to rally behind her firmly. i think in the end it's going to be difficult to mount a serious challenge. i think in iowa and new hampshire you'll see here campaigning. in the end, i think it's going to be hard for another democrat to make it too difficult. ted cruz, jeb bush and others are set to do the same in the days ahead. how's hillary clinton likely to
11:07 pm
go up against the long line of candidates? >> there are two strands of republican candidates. one strand, jeb bush, prominent. marco rubio in his way. who argue the party has to reach beyond its base. they found out of the last presidential election the. as i said, the changing democrat agrees has been a problem. mitt romney won a higher share in 2012 than ronald reagan in 1980 and lost by five million votes. we've got to reach out to the changing america, particularly growing hispanic population. then you have candidates like ted cruz who say the problem is we've got to mobilize our traditional base. we've got to give more of a reason it turn out. and scott walker who somewhat straddles the lines, had he comes out more on the base side, that's a big choice for republicans against hillary clinton. you've got to think as the first white woman presidential nominee ever if she gets it, it will be hard to hold her to less of the white vote than president obama in 2012. he won that, means republicans will have to improve among
11:08 pm
minorities to have a chance of winning. >> quickly, the critics suggest clinton has a lot of challenges ahead of her. her age, the issue of transparency, a relationship with the media. her e-mail scandal, benghazi, which of those issues do you think could prove to be her real achilles heel? and which of those scandals do you think are likely to hurt and haunt her throughout this? >> i think all of the above. all of the above are challenges. they're all part of a bigger challenge. at the end of eight years, a natural tendency in american politics when s to look to the other party. there's an instinct for change. she's been on a public field for a long time. and i think her biggest challenge is some combination of age and a desire for change. she's got to show the american public she understands their lives today and has solutions relevant to the problems they face. on the other hand, let's keep in mind what i said, the demography of the country is changing in a way that benefit democrats. every four years, the electorate grows and has been growing 2% more nonwhite, more minority,
11:09 pm
democrats dominating. unless republicans improve, the demography gives democrats the advantage. it's shifting country versus time for change. those are the big forces, the tailwind and headwind for democrats in twik. >> and close on 300 days to cover this. early yet. a lot of discussions ahead for all of those. ron brownstein, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you for having me. we've got more discussion coming up this hour. we've -- we'll look at some of the attack ads, hillary clinton has faced them since she made her big announcement. take a look. >> path will america take? a path to the past? a road to yesterday? to a place we've been to before? hillary clinton -- >> it all looks ominous, doesn't it? we'll have more on the republican reaction in 30 minutes from now. if you didn't see it and you want to catch the full video of hillary clinton's presidential announcement, it is a unique one. along all of our expert analysis. head over to
11:10 pm
meantime, as you heard, a third republican is about to enter the 2016 u.s. presidential race. florida senator marco rubio set to announce his candidacy later today in miami. senator rubio will have an uphill battle to secure the republican nomination. he is polling at 7% in the latest cnn/orc survey. now to the first golf major of the year. the masters, its champion, jordan spieth, is etching his name into the history books at augusta national. the 21-year-old never let go of the lead during this year's tournament. he finished 18 under par, setting several masters records along the way. the final score ties the course record set by tiger woods back in 1997. earlier, spieth spoke to cnn and says the performance was fueled by her second-place finish last year. >> to swit his jacket on and to be a part of the history,
11:11 pm
augusta national and the masters, something i watched slip away last year. had a chip on my shoulder. carried momentum into this week, and it came together at the right time. >> we'll have more from our interview later this hour. less than two weeks after being forced to withdraw from tikrit, isis claims it controls part of iraq's largest oil refinery, just had 40 kilometers away. >> the militants posted these videos on line claiming it shows the assault on the refinery. isis it says controls several buildings, but iraqi government officials insist they remain in full control of the facility. eight months of captivity with isis has come to an end for about 200 yazidis, the women, children, and elderly people were released last week without explanation. >> now they're describing the terror they had to endure with the militants. arwa damon with one family's
11:12 pm
story. >> reporter: a suffocating fear has chased most of these yazidi refugees into iraqi kurdistan. fear not just for themselves but for their loved ones still captive with isis. those we spoke to asked that we conceal their identities. mahmoud was not home when isis arrived last august. the fighters took his wife, three children, the youngest just a month old at the time, and his parents. "they forced us at gunpoint into big trailer trucks," she recalls. "they wrote everyone's name down and asked who wants to work as a farmer, cleaner, or herder." the family chose to herd goats. they were taken to a village whose residents had fled and put to work. "at the start, there were a lot of tears and fear, but then we got used to it," she says. two men who tried to escape were beaten and dragged to death
11:13 pm
behind a car. the village of their prison. for two months, mahmoud did not know if his family was dead or alive. then he found a cell phone left in the house and called him. she said, "we are alive, but we are prisoners." one day isis fighters appeared and took her in-laws. "we didn't know when where they were taking them," she tells us. "we thought we would be next, so we decided this is it. we survive or we don't." she fled with her children. part of a group of 31, under cover of darkness. walking, they could only hope toward freedom. "when the sun started to come up, i thought, that's it, we are going to get caught. and what am i going to do with the kids," she remembers asking herself. "i can't carry all three of them and run." luckily, she never had to. the couple can't find the words to describe the moment they were
11:14 pm
reunited. the fate of mahmoud's parents remained unknown. two days later, that question was answered. isis released 217 yazidis. many elderly. exactly why, they don't know. isis moved them around for sick terrifying days before setting them free. among them were mahmoud's parents. "we didn't know if they were going to slaughter us or what they were going do with us," his father says. "of course, i was so happy, i couldn't believe that i was in the home of the enemy facing death and then got away," his mother adds. her own parents are still held by isis. she could not escape the haunting memories of all she witnessed and went through. she was saying that the hardest moment for her in all of this was when the isis fighters began taking away the little girls, the young women to be used as
11:15 pm
sex slaves, and they would at times tear these girls away from their mothers, dragging them off by their hair as they were screaming and shouting. she was spared. "i would hide, or i would stay dirty, and i was breast-feeding," she says. that is what ultimately saved her. we're told that isis slavery rules prohibit the use of women who are bred e breast-feeding for sex -- who are breast-feeding for second. the thought of those who are is what torments her the most. turkey is summoning its ambassador to the vatican back to ankara for consultation after pope francis used a word that angered the country. during mass on sunday, the pope said the killing of armenians by ottoman turks a century ago was "genocide." in a tweet, the turkish foreign minister called the pope's comment unacceptable and out of touch with historical fact.
11:16 pm
here's exactly what the pope said -- >> translator: in the past century, our human family has lived through three massive and unprecedented tragedies. the first which is widely considered the first genocide of the 20th century, struck your own armenian people. >> armenian groups and scholars say turks massacred more than one million ethnic armenians in the final years of the ottoman empire. turkey says armenian christians and turkish muslims died fighting each other during world war i and since exists there was no genocide -- and insists there was no genocide. still to come, five feminist in china await word on whether they will face charges. we'll bring you the latest from beijing on the women's detention over their fight for human rights. and australia gets tough with parents who refuse to vaccinate their children. ahead, details on the new

11:22 pm
it's yet another sign of a continued crackdown on human rights and ngo group in china despite the fact this was not a political campaign of any kind. and in fact, the anti-sexual harassment drive lines up with the government's own desire to improve the rights of women in china. seems like the communist party is threatened by any group organized from the ground up. people across the world have voiced outrage over the women's detention including hillary clinton who caused it inexcusable. the chinese government said the country is ruled by law and its sovereignty and independence should be respected. china has a new tool to control access to foreign internet sites. goes way beyond simple currentorship. researchers are call -- censorship. researchers are calling it the great cannon. it doesn't just block banned foreign websites, it can

says the city is ordering an additional 150 body cameras on top of the 100 the city already ordered. now we've seen this move before following ferguson, rialto, and near new york city. here some numbers -- about 20% of the 1,000 police departments in the u.s. now have or will have the camera. that is a boon for companies that make these high-quality devices. namely taser and digital ally. shares of taser jumped 7% thursday. the stock is up more than 50% over the last 12 months. here's the thing -- investors aren't just looking at current orders for body cameras, but they're seeing the number of controversial shootings on the rise. that's what's stoking the view that police departments are going to have to go down this road. digital ally also got a big boost from the news. its shares rose 10%, up a whopping 170% over the past year. now, this is a very difficult decision for city official to
