after a week of protests, a mostly peaceful day of unity and rallies in the city of baltimore. a royal bundle of joy for prince william and catherine, as they welcome a little baby girl to the world. we'll have a live report from buckingham palace. and was it money for nothing? lots of hype but little fireworks as mayweather and pacquiao finally meet in vegas. post-fight reaction, straight ahead. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm george howell. this is "cnn newsroom."
we start this hour in baltimore, maryland. the mandery curfew has just ended this hour. on saturday night, police arrested dozens of people for defying the curfew. the curfew was put in place last week in response to days of sometimes violent protests over freddie gray's death. gray died in april, as you'll remember, after suffering a spinal injury after a ride in a police transport van. six officers involved in his arrest and transport have been arrested. and as a result of that, we have seen largely peaceful demonstrations on saturday. the extension of the curfew, though, was unexpected. still, some marchers told cnn they had no intentions of getting off the streets when the curfew went into effect. cnn's sara sidner shows us what happened when people refused to leave. >> reporter: we're standing on the corner of west north and pennsylvania. there have been several arrests overnight here alone and in
other parts of the city. the curfew came at 10:00. some people decided -- most people in this area decided to go home. there were a handful of people that decided not to. they were arrested. a bit of a dramatic scene, though, here earlier. a man was arrested lying on the ground. he was dragged at some point from one point to the other. it also appeared that he had ingested perhaps some pepper spray, was having difficulties with that. they ended up taking him away after arresting him and putting him into an ambulance and taking him for medical attention. most of the other protesters who were arrested are those who decided to defy the curfew, have been taken in without major incident. the last person we saw, a young lady who says she was arrested down the street, didn't want to get into the van. >> no, i don't want to get in! >> reporter: that went on for a bit of time, but they have now taken her in as well. we know now that there are at least a half dozen arrests here and there were arrests in other parts of the city as well. back to you guys. >> that report from cnn's sara
sidner. and in just a few hours time, the state's governor will attend the church service where he is calling for a statewide day of prayer and peace. and later this day, a faith-based rally is expected at baltimore's city hall. it may be the richest fight in boxing history, but many fans who paid to watch say they would, well, rather have their money back. american floyd mayweather defeated philippines hero manny pacquiao in one of the most highly anticipated matches in decades. there was a lot of dancing in the ring but very few of the punishing blows that many people expected. here's cnn's don riddell with more on that from las vegas. >> reporter: well, in the end, it wasn't really the fight of the century it was more of a chess match than a boxing match, but it's floyd mayweather who is victorious, beating manny pacquiao on a unanimous points decision. he now remains unbeaten at 48-0 throughout his professional career. this is the scorecard that we've been handed by the judges. and actually, from all three, a
clear and, ultimately, unanimous points decision. mayweather was respectful of his opponent at the end, but he knew that he had done enough to remain the champ. >> we did what we had to do tonight, and i'm truly blessed. manny pacquiao is blessed. and i want to thank the fans that came out to support this event. >> i got him many times. i saw the punches, and i think, i believe, i thought i won the fight. >> reporter: both andy scholes and myself inside the mgm grand casino. andy, what do you think? >> well, don, it was an electric atmosphere, i will give it that, with all the celebrities and all of the superstar athletes there to watch this fight. and early on, you know, with all the "manny" chants and everybody backing pacquiao and he had the combinations in the early rounds, things looked like this may live up to the hype, but then from then on, mayweather got in that defensive stance he's known for, got in the defensive mode that no one's been able to crack in his career so far, and pacquiao even admitted, he couldn't get to mayweather and win this fight, and mayweather ended up landing
more punches. it was a clear decision. there was no other way to score this than how the judges did. who knows what's next? manny says he has one more fight left in his career, in september, likely. but who else will he fight? no one wants to see him fight anyone else but pacquiao and -- >> and do we want to see that? >> i don't know what's next. a rematch could be in the books, but they're certainly not going to make as much money as they did on this fight. i'm sure of that. >> for andy and myself in las vegas, it's back to you. well, now to the philippines. the country nearly came to a halt as people stopped to watch their national hero in the ring. ivan watson spoke with don riddell just moments after that fight ended and found that manny fans in manila are already calling for a rematch. >> reporter: disappoint, pull panel, because everybody here was clearly rooting for the hometown boxer, manny pacquiao. to get a better sense of how this is going to be absorbed here in the philippines, this disappointment, i'm joined by dell rosario, a sports columnist
at our sister network, cnn philippines. so, how are philippifilipinos g handle this? >> well, filipinos, obviously, we're going to be sad. we're going to be depressed thp pi guy is our national hero. we really look up to him. everything he does, we have an eye on it. this loss, some people might argue that he could have won, but honestly, i believe that the most he probably could have gotten out of this is a draw. i think floyd did his best to get the better of manny. i thought that probably won two more rounds than manny. and i think the result is a bit fair. filipinos won't probably take it the best, but i think that manny's stature here in the philippines, it won't go down. i think he's still an inspiration. it's going to be something that we're going to have to learn to cope with. and i feel that in maybe another day, maybe in a possible rematch, manny may be able to take mayweather out. >> reporter: you're talking about a rematch. do you think manny pacquiao will ever fight again? >> yes.
i think that he still will fight again. he's two years younger than floyd. i think that manny still has it. i don't know who, which opponent will be big enough for manny. so, in terms of, like, matching even a bit the hype of the mayweather fight, i don't know if that's possible, but i don't think manny's going to stop fighting yet, if ever, maybe one or two more fights. but yeah, that's how i see it. >> and another big story that we followed around the world, this was the birth announcement heard around the world. the duchess of cambridge delivered a baby girl on saturday. the family of four was back home in kensington palace just hours after katherine delivered. cnn's royal correspondent max foster has more from london on how the day unfolded. >> reporter: a baby princess is welcomed into the world. just over ten hours after giving birth, the duchess of cambridge looked radiant, the duke beaming
beside her as they emerged from st. mary's hospital with their little girl, 8 pounds, 3 ounces. in front of hundreds of cameras and well wishers, kate settled her new baby into a waiting car. william got behind the wheel and drove his family home to kensington palace. the news of the birth was announced on twitter, and then moments later by a traditional town crier. >> it's a girl! it's a girl! [ bells ] >> reporter: it was a happy moment that hundreds had waited for outside the hospital, some since the beginning of april. >> it's a baby girl! what more could we want? over 8 pounds. george was 8 pounds 6. >> are you happy? >> oh, i'm over the moon! i feel as though i've had the baby myself! i'm so elated. >> a baby was born, and not just any baby, a royal baby. and not just any royal baby, a presence yes.
princess. this is one of the most amazing feelings. i know it's kind of -- it's a silly feeling, but it's so fun to be a part of it. i have to kind of catch myself, take a step back and really soak it all in. >> reporter: one of the princess's first visitors was her brother, prince george. william, who had been in the delivery room, momentarily leaving the hospital to collect his 22-month-old son. within 20 minutes, he was back. the toddler making his first public appearance since the royal tour of australia a year ago. william willed the little prince to walk. he preferred to be carried, but delighted the crowd with a wave. the british public had wagered on a baby sister for george, and london icons lit up with the news. crowds flocked to buckingham palace to see the official notice mounted on an easel in the forecourt. retailers will also welcome the princess, who's expected to
inject more than $1.5 billion into the british economy over her lifetime. just hours old and already the darling of the media and the public alike. max foster, cnn, london. >> we will have more on the royal baby ahead. but next, our cnn reporter inside north korea speaks with two south koreans held prisoner and accused of espionage. plus, aid groups work to make life normal again for some of the youngest survivors of nepal's earthquake. ♪ ♪

>> reporter: it really was remarkable, george. we're here in pyongyang. we arrived yesterday, unaware of why the government invited us back. and then this morning, we were told that we would be speaking with these two accused spies from south korea, kim kukee, a 61-year-old missionary and then a 56-year-old businessman. both of these men, if their stories are true -- and of course, the south korean government is denying that they are, in fact, spies for their national intelligence service -- but if their stories are true, they both paint a pretty remarkable insight of the spying and the espionage that goes on between north and south korea. both of these men were operating in a third country. they were both in china. china is one of the few countries where north koreans and south koreans often are in the same cities and can interact with each other. and so, these men both say that they were recruited, essentially, by representatives of the south korean government to cross illegally into north korea and spy on the activities
here that were going on. so, the missionary says that he was working for almost nine years for the south korean government, and he says that he was paid about $500,000 u.s. to provide sensitive information about government movements, basically. he was also accused of distributing religious material, political propaganda. and then the businessman says that he was paid to cross and to steal sensitive materials from north korea. and so, again, south korea denies that these two men were official operatives, but they are both now being kept here. we had no restrictions on our interview. we were not given a time limit or any limit on the questions that we could ask. and we're logging the footage now, putting it together, and we'll be sending it in just as soon as we can. we have no internet at the moment, even limited phone service, but we'll be getting the video to you. so, within the coming hours,
you'll be able to see and hear what these men had to say. it was fascinating. >> will, briefly here, did you get a sense that there were similar talking points between the two men? >> reporter: there were times that what they said was almost identical, although i asked both of them if they had been coached ahead of time, if they had been told what to say. they both said they had not been coached ahead of time, and yet, there were times when things that they said were almost verbatim similar to each other. i also had asked our government minders here for access to that 21-year-old nyu student who has reportedly been detained here. we don't know if we're going to be able to speak to that student to find out more information about him, but we're working our contacts on the ground here. >> cnn's will ripley in pyongyang. now on to the country of nepal, where people in remote areas are still struggling after that devastating earthquake that rocked the region last week. the country is plagued by poverty, and residents are upset that aid is not reaching them yet.
cnn's sumnima udas has been in nepal since shortly after that earthquake and now joins from the capital city of kathmandu. sumnima, what are you seeing at this point? >> reporter: george, people are getting really desperate and increasingly frustrated. they're hearing about all this aid that's coming in, they're seeing it, but it's not really reaching those who need it most. even in kathmandu, i just saw a line kilometers long of vehicles waiting for fuel. outside of kathmandu, entire villages have been flattened. people have been living without find water and shelter for days. they're actually trekking down the mountains to get to aid, many of them badly injured. but still unable to really receive enough aid for entire families. in some areas, we're beginning to hear that looting is taking place. that's how desperate it's become. now, the government is clearly overwhelmed, and there are many challenges, of course, the mountainous topography is not helping. it makes getting to rural parts very difficult. most villages are very high up
in the mountains, spread out. for much of nepal, you actually need a helicopter to get to these parts and there's only 20 helicopters available. they're going back and forth every two minutes. i was at the air base, and every two minutes they're going back and forth, bringing in the injured, taking supplies. but still, it's not enough. the airport is jam packed. there is one international airport, there is one runway, only nine parking spots. the relief planes are having a hard time arriving. the united nations just said the customs are slowing down the process as well. of course, it's been raining on and off, landslides, poor weather have hampered the efforts as well. so, many challenges. and even nepalese have always known that a massive earthquake would hit at some point, and they were sitting on what one expert called a dynamite in terms of fault line. what this has exposed is that nepal was completely not adequately prepared, george. >> sumnima, do you get the sense that, you know, that they're
able to still find any survivors in the city of kathmandu and also in those remote areas? >> reporter: they're still calling it a search-and-rescue mission, george, and now we're eight days on. and of course, chances of finding survivors is very slim. that's what the officials have said. and they said it would be a miracle if anyone is found alive, but they're hopeful, and they continue to look. i was at one of these -- i was there when the 24-year-old woman was pulled out of that building. and even after that, they heard some sort of noise there, so they continued digging for two days, even though, you know, the dogs had sort of hadn't reacted positively, these sniffer dogs. but because they heard some kind of noise in the sound detection equipment, they continued to dig for two more days. so, they're taking this very, very seriously. they're trying to go through as many of the buildings at least in kathmandu as possible, but chances are, eight days on, it is very unlikely that they will be able to pull out any
survivors now. george. >> sumnima, we're watching these pictures, these images, while you're talking, and for viewers who may be sitting at home watching, you know, it's just unreal to see the extent of the damage, but you're on the ground there. just what was your first impression? and given that you've been there now for some time, what do you think? >> reporter: you know, it's only really when you get out of kathmandu that you realize the magnitude of this. and we've taken the chopper a few times with the military here as they go to drop aid and also as they go through their surveillance trips. and it's just -- it's going to take a long time for nepal to rebuild itself, because these people already have such difficult lives. and now they have no homes, they have no food, no shelter. almost every person here has been affected in some way. and they're trying to pick up their lives again, but you know, many of these people are left
with absolutely nothing. so you know, it's a very depressing situation, to be honest. and you know, while aid is coming in, a lot of people, you know, are looking to help nepal, willing to help nepal. unfortunately, it's going to take some time, george. >> sumnima udas on the ground there in kathmandu, following what will take some time, you know, to have people, you know, get back to any sense of normalcy. sumnima, thank you for your reporting. the earthquake has left almost 2 million children in nepal either homeless or traumatized. two relief organizations have teamed up to create safe places for children to cope with loss and to start getting back to some sense of normalcy. ♪ that's what it's all about ♪ put your right hand in, put your right hand out ♪ ♪ put your right hand in and shake it all about ♪ >> in the 21 most affected
districts, there's 1.7 million children who have been affected by the earthquake. unicef works with partners like world vision and others to set up child-friendly spaces like this one for children who have been traumatized by the earthquake and for children here who are living in tents. >> the objective of create this child space is for children to come here, feel safe, get back to normal, get over the psychosocial stress that they have faced all these days, and slowly, they are coming back to normal. >> the children i've met in the past few days have all said, no, i don't want to go home. i don't feel safe there. i want to stay here in the tent cities. and the conditions here are not that great. so, you can understand the level of trauma that they've been through. >> i just had a talk with a small boy this morning. i asked him, what you able to sleep at night? he said, i couldn't.
and i asked him why, he said because i am used to sleeping inside the house. now he says, whenever i close my eyes, i see the house falling down, i see the bricks coming down. >> what the global community needs to know is, first, we really are grateful. the nepali people are grateful for the support. that money is going directly to support the people of nepal. they really need that support, and they're really appreciative. >> i'm sure that they would always long to get back to school, and that longing that, you know, getting back to normal, that maybe that would really hamper their minds and hearts, so that's my worry. >> you see those faces and you see from time to time those smiles. i mean, any help, you know, is much appreciated there. and you can learn much more about this earthquake in nepal just simply by logging on to our
website at cnn.com/nepal. there you will find stories and interviews from the devastated country and find links to groups that are working to help people in those hardest hit areas. again, that is cnn.com/nepal. heavy rain has broken records in brisbane, australia, but it's also causing flooding among parts of the east coast. derek van damme is standing by at the international weather center with more on that. derek? >> george, parts of the east coast of australia from queensland to new south wales received over four times their monthly average for the month of may in just a period of two days. look at that. 239 millimeters. we would normally receive about 58 millimeters for, again, just the month of may, and we're only a couple days in. unfortunately, it did lead to localized flooding and it resulted in this type of, well, kind of situation, obviously. dozens of people rescued from floodwaters during this peak
traffic hour. train services were suspended, flights were delayed. look at the wind just whip up that salt and foam from the ocean. just gives you a good indication of how strong this storm was. by the way, that dam overflowing as well from the heavy rainfall. looking back at my computer models, you can see on the latest water vapor imagery that clockwise rotation along the east coast of australia. that's the low pressure system in question. very typical to form this time of year. it's just that we've had a couple of consecutive east coast lows, as they're referred to. and we've had, if you recall, about eight days ago some significant flooding near the sydney area. that shading of brown on this water vapor imagery is actually the drier air starting to settle in. so, conditions are set to imfrov sydney to brisbane as the low moves off the east coast. high pressure settles in. then we say hello to another storm system that's going to impact southern portions of australia into victoria. this is our precipitation forecast going forward. clearing skies again along the
east coast there as the approaching storm system, and you can see some of the rainfall totals in excess of 250 millimeters from this last storm. no wonder there was that kind of flooding in the region. there's our wind forecast as well. okay, heading to the united kingdom and parts of europe, quickly. of course, we've got the uk elections coming up this week. we also have a public holiday this monday. and it has really been very wet and very active across the greater london region. the forecast continues with showery weather from sunday all the way through the middle parts of next week. maybe a break on monday. temperatures right where they should be this time of year, but we have a very active weather pattern with two areas of low pressure system, one near the iberian peninsula, the other across the british isles. those are really merging together to just give us this showery weather pattern that's going to continue for much of northwestern europe. we're going to be monitoring that area very closely as the uk electione closer and closer. hey, george? >> i was speaking to a friend
yesterday from london here in atlanta, and she was enjoying the sun because not much sun there lately. >> we all know how short-lived that is in london. >> derek van dam, thank you so much. >> thanks, george. well, you cannot rain on the parade there in london. the favorite color there for everyone is pink after the birth of a royal baby. what we know about britain's newest princess, next. plus, blues legend b.b. king's health takes a turn. up next, his message to fans after leaving the hospital.
the world. i'm george howell. this is "cnn newsroom." the headlines this hour. the streets of baltimore, maryland, are now open to residents after a saturday night curfew has ended. police arrested dozens of people saturday for defying the curfew put in place after violent protests against police in the death of freddie gray. six police officers have been arrested in that case. a 5.0-magnitude earthquake hit 180 kilometers west of the city of kathmandu early saturday. it comes one week after that devastating 7.8 quake that hit that region. officials in nepal say more than 7,000 people are now confirmed dead. after years of anticipation and 12 intense rounds of boxing, floyd mayweather defeated manny pacquiao in a unanimous decision in las vegas, nevada. mayweather says he will retire now after his next fight in september. both boxers will earn well over
$100 million each for this title fight. it was the birth announcement heard around the world. the duchess of cambridge delivered baby girl on saturday. the family of four was back at home in kensington palace just hours after katherine delivered. but as for a name, no news on that yet, but certainly a lot of curiosity. let's turn to cnn's erin mclaughlin live in london. erin, do you have any guesses on what that name could be? >> reporter: hi, george. first, let me just set the scene for you here outside buckingham palace. people here are so excited about this baby, that despite the rain and the cold, they're actually lining up outside the gates of the palace forecourts to get a chance to see the birth announcement. that is a piece of paper signed by the hospital staff that includes the baby's gender, the weights of the baby, the time of the birth. it's being displayed for about 24 hours on the very same easel
that was used to announce the birth of prince william and prince george. so, a little piece of history, people lining up to see it here outside buckingham palace. this baby is headline news here in britain, and she's sure to go on to become one of the most photographed people in the world. so, let's take a look at some of her very first front pages. here is the cover of "the sun" newspaper this morning with the headline, "sleeping cutie." i mean, george, look at that face. how precious is this little baby? >> it's just a beautiful picture. >> reporter: and then you've got the "daily mail." the focus here really being on the duchess of cambridge, absolutely glowing with the headline, "wasn't she worth the wait, kate?" a reference to the fact that the baby was past due. there is kate looking absolutely beautiful in that yellow printed jenny packham dress, custom made, we understand.
and then, here is the cover of "the sunday times." again, another beautiful shot of this brand-new baby girl with the headline, "the new people's princess." a nod there to princess diana. the newly complete royal family of four waking up this morning in kensington palace. not clear if they'll be receiving any visitors, but i'm sure there are grandparents that are very eager to meet the new arrival. prince charles and camilla as well as the middletons. but again, not clear if those visits will be happening today. george? >> erin, as for names, i know that there are several that are out there. what are you hearing? >> reporter: there's so much speculation about this name, george. there's so many people out there with really strong opinions. the betting agencies are saying there has been a surge of money being placed on the name charlotte, interestingly enough. i'm sure prince charles would
not object to that. the name victoria also seen as another top contender, although this baby would have rather big shoes to fill. queen victoria was one of the most successful monarchs of all time. in fact, there is a monument just outside buckingham palace dedicated to her life achievements. and royal watchers i've been speaking to tell me they really like the name elizabeth, which would be a fitting tribute to the queen, who this year surpasses queen victoria as the longest reigning monarch. but again, all of this speculation. it took them about two days to announce prince george's name, so we may have to wait a little bit longer yet. george? >> erin, just looking at this image there beside you, and how they make it look so perfect is just incredible. i remember, we had our first child. i was completely disheveled. so, when you look at that image, it's just amazing. erin mclaughlin live in london. thank you so much. around the world, gamblers have placed their bets on what
they think that name would be. you heard erin mention a few names, but others -- alice, charlotte and olivia. those are the top three names on betting websites. i spoke with royal commentator richard fitzwilliams, who has a few guesses of his own. >> the bookies are varying their bets, and it's interesting that alice, a name that i never believed would be chosen, simply because there aren't any well-known alices in the royal family, looking back, for example, even a large number of years. and i think that the duke and duchess will be traditional in their choices. my feeling is that it would be so appropriate in the year when the queen becomes our longest reigning monarch to have either elizabeth, or perhaps alexandra. both of those are heavily tipped because the queen is alexandra mary, so that would be an
opportunity to pay tribute to the monarch who wore pink in their honor yesterday. such a historic day. >> and certainly, richard, the queen has to approve the name. but as we saw with prince george, it didn't happen on the day of. it took a little time. so, do you think we may have to wait several days on this, or do you think that there is, you know, a desire to make this decision rather quickly? >> i think these days it will be made rather quickly. i mean, prince charles wasn't named for a month, and prince william not for a week. but things have changed. and of course, conscious of social media, conscious of the absolute fascination, as you heard, the capital's landmarks were festuned in pink light. and it really is a very joyous period. we've seen sleeping beauty presented to the nation and the world by her very, very proud and loving parents.
my feeling is also charlotte's got something about it that it's very attractive. it's also the second name of kate's sister, pippa, who is pippa charlotte middleton. that has a possibility, and it links to queen charlotte, the spouse of george iii. but of course, as we know, william is devoted to the memory of his mother. now, whether diana or frances, i don't think that either will be the first name, but whether they will be included in the names, that's a matter which will cause enormous interest. >> richard, one other question, whether the name, you know, is alice, charlotte or olivia, these top three names that we're seeing on the different websites, how important is it, would you say, that the simple fact that this is a baby girl that was delivered to this family? >> well, i think it's tremendously important. we knew william wanted a girl. we knew his father, the prince of wales, was so keen on having
a girl, and that also, it's important to note that we have elapsed sexual equality when it comes to succession. now some concerning news to pass along. legendary blues singer b.b. king is in hospice care at his home after battling serious health issues. that is according to his website. the 89-year-old king was admitted to a las vegas hospital on thursday. his daughter said he wasn't eating and may have had a heart attack. he went home on friday. a message on king's website thanks fans for their prayers. the rock and roll hall of famer and 30-time grammy nominee is probably best known for his hit "the thrill is gone." we certainly wish him the very best and his family at this point. coming up next here on "cnn newsroom," rescues on a massive scale in the mediterranean. the italian coast guard pulls thousands of migrants out of the water in just one day. plus, the nigerian military

welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm george howell. human rights watch is accusing saudi arabia of dropping cluster bombs on houthi rebels in yemen and alleges that they were supplied by the united states. the bombs are designed to detonate on their own if they don't reach a target, but many times, that does not happen, and the bombs will go off when someone stumbles upon them at random. cnn has reached out to the u.s. and saudi officials for comment but has not heard back.
