12:01 am
this hour we are following breaking news out of eastern china. rescue teams there scrambling right now to pull more survivors from a passenger ship that cap sized in the yangtze river with 458 on board. so far at least 13 people have been rescued. five body recovered. the ship's captain and chief engineer have been taken into police custody. we want to get the late nois on t -- latest on these developments, and ana coren, live from hong kong. bring us up to date on what is happening with the rescue operation. the weather is better at laes now. but also talk to us about the captain and the chief engineer being in custody and why the police feel they need to be there. >> well let's start with the pictures that we just saw of rescuers listening to the bottom of the hull which of course it cap sized 9. 30. p.m. last night. the ship carrying 458 on board.
12:02 am
sinking within a minute. that according to the captain and the chief engineer who as you say are now in police custody. but according to rescue theirs have found signs of life, which is why they are scrambling. scrambling to, to find any more survivors. 13 have so far been plucked from the ship, plucked from, from the water including a 65-year-old grandmother who report lead kept thanking her rescuers. but, as you see, those pictures they're listening to the hull. they have heard some one banging on the hull. they have also heard voices. so this is why they are throwing everything at it. now, the chinese premiere he, is there on the scene. he has, has said that rescuers must have every resource at their disposal. he said every effort must be maid to save lives. rosemary he has also ordered an investigation taz to why the ship went down. >> and anna, what is the major
12:03 am
concern here is that, most of those on board were senior citizens and the concern there of course their ability to swim. whether they are able to at this point. and a lot of people people believe are trapped inside the vessel. but i do want to just direct your attention to the captain and the chief engineer. because, what is, is interesting here, is that they are in police custody. there was bad weather at the time. it apares that authorities seem to think somehow they have contributed to this vessel going down. >> yeah, possibly. that is why of course they're now in police custody. but they are -- two of the, the 13 survivors. so far. they claim the ship was hit by a cyclone around 9:00 p.m. last night. it was 9:30 p.m. that that ship went down. and they say it sank within a minute. so you think, 9:30 p.m.
12:04 am
most of those, those passengers on board were senior citizens. they would have been aslaep eep getting ready for bed. many in their cabin. if the ship has gone down that quickly, it's frightening to think that, that many would have, have struggled. really to make tight shore. that is why the number is, is so slim. we understand that it was a survivor who, who swam to shore, and alerted authorities. it took more than two hours for, for authorities to actually be alerted to, to the tragedy that was unfolding. it would seem there are some survivors in that hull of the ship. the very bottom of the ship. whether they found air pockets. they're the ones that are communicating with rescuers. as we say, every effort is now being made. yes the captain. chief engineer. they are under police custody. certainly an investigation. thorough investigation with the
12:05 am
world's attention now on this tragedy. will be under way. >> yeah, very worrying situation for the loved ones of those on board. ana coren reporting live from hong kong. thank you to you. >> meteorologist ivan cabrera is tracking weather conditions in china for us. really jarring there, aivan, a survivor had to swem im to callr help. hours before help could get there. what conditions are rescuers dealing with? >> one of the lucky ones there. she made a good point. ana, because it went done so quickly. they're saying a minute. chances of having more air pockets within the cabins are going to be higher as owe ppposo a slower singing vessel with water rushing in. hopefully able to get more folks out of there. a relatively shallow water body there. so that certainly helping as well. the weather aches seashell in,
12:06 am
much better shape. this is the thunderstorm activity that may have p precipitated the tragedy. heavy rainfall was there. lightning. certainly the possibility of 80 to 100 kilometer per hour wind. bubbled up over the area. picked up 62 millimeters in six hours. here is our forecast here. continue to see the boundary. beginning to push to the south. with that, will go await rainfall and heaviest of the wind. i think we have a window. this front meanders, north and south. for the time being it is going south. i think we will talk better weather on the back side of it here. completely clear, we'll have a few showers. more of a, kind of a light rain situation. and some fog out there. concern would be, heavy thunderstorms. because that would churn up the waters and that would make -- rescue and recovery efforts a
12:07 am
heck of a lot harder. this is a better case sar scenario. we'll monitor situations there. this is the time of year, you see the front that extend well to the north and east. this is typical for this time of year. so no surprise to any captains. co-cap tivenz a co-captains, time of year we get it. east asia rainy season. yesterday was no exception. guys. >> all right. many thanks to you, ivan cabrera for bringing us up to date. appreciate it. >> this just win. nine aid workers have been killed in northern afghanistan. it happened in the balkh province. armed militants attacked the house where the aide workers were living. >> aid workers part of the national solidarity program which was created by the government in 2003. their deaths are being investigated. the militants not identified.
12:08 am
>> former member of british parliament, charles kennedy, has died at his home in scotland. his death is not believed to be suspicious, but it is not yet clear how he died. kennedy lost his seat in parliament, and last month's general election. he had been a member for more than 30 years. >> the current liberal democrat leader, nick clegg released this statement saying in part -- the first minister of scotland, nicola sturgeon tweeted -- charles kennedy was 55 years old. >> there are new reports the number two man in fifa has now been implicated in the corruption scandal rocking the futbol world. >> leaders believe, the
12:09 am
secretary-general transferred $10 million to an official in 2008. cnn world sports patrick snell has details. >> the fifa fallout from the investigation into corruption continuing in a big way. for more on the fifa fallout. let's bring in a guest from
12:10 am
bristol, england. and, initially when the arrests came done last week. it appeared that the fifa president was in the clear for now we should say. but, with the new reports now, secretary-general, allegedly transferring $10 million to another former vp, jack warner. do you feel that blatter will eventually have to step down as all of this stacks up? >> i don't think so. not on the basis of what has come out so far. he has come under a lot of pressure. re-elected friday. and 2/3 of vote. fifa members. at the moment he is fixing. >> slowly those around him either continue to fall or suspicion continues to mount. when we talk ue. -- uefa, the european league, the president, seems to be working on response for blatter refusing to step down. that's happening behind the
12:11 am
scenes. how do you think that could play out. many people upset with the distraction this places on professional snoobl. >> -- futbol. i think they have to take responsibility, mruuch too late. so uefa has an emergency meeting saturday in berlin. they're going to kid their next steps. there has been talk in england about a boycott of the world cup. frankly i don't think that's a realistic prospect. >> kier ratnedge. >> jim:ing us. thank you for your time. appreciate it. >> meanwhile, prince ali bin al hussein of jordan says he hopes fifa president sepp blatter takes responsibility for the scandal. in an exclusive interview, the former fifa vice president told
12:12 am
cnn, he would have resigned. if he was in blatter's position. take a listen. >> he is responsible. i hope at some stage he does take responsibility for actions. because he is the president of the governing body of the most popular sport in the world. obviously if i was in sepp blatter's position i would have resigned. probably more so, ages ago. because at the end of the day this happened under his watch. >> prince ali failed in his bid last week to replace blatter. blatter was re-elected to a fifth term. >> acting head of the transportation security administration is being reassigned. monday the department of homeland security chief, thanked melvin carraway for 11 years with the tsa and said he was moving to another office. >> this follows news that the tsa failed to detect banned
12:13 am
items during undercover tests. 67 out of 70 times. aviation and government regulation correspondent rene marsh explains. >> reporter: tsa officers failed 95% of the time during undercover operations designed to test their ability to detect explosives and weapons at airporai airport security check points. >> anomalies that screeners and or their equipment should locate and at least flag for additional screening. >> team with the department of homeland security inspector general's office. poementzed as passengers through check points with mock explosives and weapon. a government official with knowledge of the results say tsa failed 67 out of 70 tests. >> to miss 67 out of 70, different instances is extremely
12:14 am
alarming. i've would say even dangerous. >> i am putting a detonator into the -- plastic explosive. >> reporter: cnn was there in 2008 for a similar covert operation. that time it was tsa testing its officers. >> okay. >> at the checkpoint, the tester is wanded. patted down where device was concealed. the screener missed it. not until the tester, lifts his shirt up. the department of homeland security immediately directed tsa to implement series of actions several of which are in place. >> is it technology failing? or the screeners themselves not following proper protocol? if tsa is screening quiments is failing. not doing the job. that its a larger, systemic issue that tsa need to address. >> rene marsh, cnn, washington.

call me caitlyn. those are the word gracing the cover of "vanity fair" july issue. and the first public photo of caitlyn jenner, formerly known as bruce, reality star, and olympic gold medalist. randi kaye has her story.
12:20 am
>> bruce had to till a lie. living the lie. >> reporter: caitlyn jenner talking about bruce jenner opening up about her transition during the two day photo shoot for "vanity fair's" july cover. >> caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. as soon as the "vanity fair" cover comes out. i'm free. >> reporter: this is the cover caitlyn is talking about. a very different cover than bruce jenner's 1982 "playgirl" we last saw bruce back in april when he sat down with abc's diane sawyer his last interview as a man. >> my brain is much more female than it is male. hard for people to understand that. but that's what my soul is. >> reporter: bruce had been taking hormones had his body hair removed, his nose fixed and trachea shaved. but it was his facial feminization surgery in march says "vanity fair" that completed the transition and caitlyn's new look. >> i was probably at the games because i was running away from a lot of things. very, very, proud of the accomplishment. i don't want to diminish that accomplishment.
12:21 am
>> reporter: that accomplishment landed bruce jenner in the history book here, broke the world record winning the decathlon at 26. he was the guy on the wheaties box. >> announcer: wheaties is the breakfast of champions. >> reporter: in this extensive 22-page cover story, caitlyn reveals that during speeches given after the olympics, she would wear a bra and pantyhose under her suit. caitlyn also shares she suffered a panic attack the day after that 10-hour facial feminization surgery thinking to herself "what did i just do to myself? ." the article reveals that caitlyn jenner hosted girls nights with wine and food and dress and feel like a woman and be around women. even her daughter casandra attended telling vanity fair it felt like they could just be girls together. to those who thing this transition is a stunt for tv ratings. caitlyn says think again. >> it is not about the fanfare, not about people cheering in the stadium, not about going down the street and everybody giving you that a boy, bruce, pat on the back okay.
12:22 am
this is about your life. >> reporter: a life to be lived now as caitlyn jenner. she posted this on twitter. "i'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. welcome to the world caitlyn. can't wait for you to get to know her/me. randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> joining us is jazmine simpkins. not surprisingly there has been a very mixed reaction to caitlyn jenner and her big "vanity fair" cover reveal. some of it hateful. some of it supportive. what's been the reaction from hollywood? and more specifically from the kardashians and others? >> well, specifically the kardashian family they are extremely supportive of caitlyn. of course they probably have known for a while that this day was coming. as you can tell from just the specials that have been rolled out on e! the family seems to be, you
12:23 am
know, getting used to this. today they were wrapping their arms around caitlyn via twitter, via instagram. and letting her know they support her. kylie in general calling her her angel. i think they just really, really are supportive of her. >> before this, the only reference point the world really had was their reality show "keeping up with the kardashians." in the article caitlyn said what led to the end of the marriage with kris jenner, she said 20% gender identitier use and the way caitlyn as bruce was treated by then wife. would casual watchers of "keeping up with the kardashians" have seen the dynamic at play? >> most definitely. last season you saw a lot of strife between bruce and kris. you saw the deterioration of the marriage. definitely last season. you even saw siblings on both side divided. the jenner clan, versus the kardashian clan. a lot going on internally with
12:24 am
the family. and then kris and bruce, you could tell there was something going on. and then finally, we see now that this was, really at the heart of it. there was something going. caitlyn wanted to be free. and she finally is. >> jazmine, you mention the social media aspect. here, because we know that as soon as caitlyn jenner introduced herself off to the world she suddenly got flooded with follows on twitter and facebook. talk to us about that. >> first of all i think it was genius. this, the kardashian clan is definitely very smart in the way that they use social media. i even saw kris jenner use the word today tsunami when, with regard to the way in which they have been able to really use social media. to their advantage. i thought it was brilliant that caitlyn made the announcement using twitter. started her twitter. really got, now has her own true following that really belong to her. and i think that, immediately to
12:25 am
you seem jump on and followers really start to say, hey we support you. we are going to follow you on this journey. as she says, follow me/her. >> that's where you see the value for everybody else here. president obama sent a tweet to caitlyn saying it takes courage to share your story. in a real way, the lgbt community has a huge voice in caitlyn wouldn't you say? >> boy, do they. this is probably the hugest, hugest celebrity and face for the community. my concern i hope that, that it isn't exploited. there is this reality show. there is the huge fame. there is pap ra zecharazzi. a lot of things can muddy the waters. the heart of caitlyn, very genuine in want to share this journey. i think that they are really, really, the lbgt will have a community that will champion them and learn along the way.
12:26 am
i think she is open to understanding the journey too. i think we are all going to learn a little more than we ever have about what this is like. i think for someone like caitlyn to come forward and being the face of, you know the olympics, back, 30, 40 years ago, when people really knew, knew, who she was. he was back then. this is going to be something phenomenal. i think the world is going to see something we have never seen before. >> yeah, people are sort of fascinated and incredibly confused at the same time. so much to sort of discover and investigate on this. jazmine simpkins, thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> and you can find much more on reaction to caitlyn jenner's end view by heading to our website. the address -- >> we'll take short break here. still to come. the backdrop of isis wins in iraq. representatives from the coalition that is fighting the militants gathering in paris.

12:30 am
welcome back, everyone. you are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. your last half-hour of the day with the both of us. let's check the headlines. >> in eastern china, rescue teams are scrambling to pull more survivors from a passenger ship carrying 458 people. that capsized in the yangtze river. so far 13 people have been rescued. five body recovered. the ship's captain and chief
12:31 am
engineer have been taken into police custody. there are reports that fifa's secretary-general allegedly transferred $10 million from the swiss based association to another fifa official back in 2008. that other official you see hem here, former fifa vice president jack warner, among 14 fifa official charged. the indictment does not say volke knew the money was being for legal purposes. >> an internal investigation found that the tsa let weapons and explosives through screening areas in 95% of undercover tests. the department's acting chief is being reassigned. homeland security has directed the tsa to make changes. the full report is due out this summer. we want to get you more now on the breaking news. david mckenzie headed to the scene of that ship that capsized in china's yangtze river. he joins us now on the phone
12:32 am
from the province with the latest. david you are on the way to the scene where this is all taking place. maybe tell us what you have seen as you make your trip to where the ship sank. >> well, what we have seen, two things that are worth mentioning. a mad scramble to save any passenger whose might still be trapped under the hull of the passenger ship effectively on a pleasure cruise of 11 days through this part of china. one thing worth mentioning we are seeing scores of military vehicles, packed with soldiers, at the ready and buses with soldiers in them wearing life vests. on the expressway toward the scene of the incident. also i can tell you, the weather is not great. sporadic, as we are traveling toward. that hampered efforts. visibility not excellent. certainly that will have been a
12:33 am
major factor. >> david mckenzie on the line from proivens, he makes his way to the yangtze river. the ship has capsized. david mckenzie saying based there on what he can see the military is on its way equipmented with life vests and resources that rescuers will need to try and save people's, maybe in the water right now. we understand there are many elderly people in the water too. we will check in with david throughout the day on cnn on this breaking story. >> now to another big story we are watching, representatives from the coalition countries against isis, are meeting in paris. on the agenda, recent isis games in iraq. iraqi prime minister haida al abadi is scheduled to address the group. >> after yisis staged an attack
12:34 am
at samarra, killing 34 police officers and dozens of others. >> we will turn to ian lee following the developments joins us live from cairo with the latest. ian, we have been learning new, disturbing details. isis gaining ground. stockpiling weapons. we also learned that, that they seized 2,300 humvees. just in mosul alone. they're expected to get more in the days and weeks ahead. and with this conference on isis scheduled to get under way very soon what can we expect from that critical meeting of foreign ministers? >> well, rosemary, that meeting, the foreign ministers are supposed to be arriving in about ten minutes from now. we already heard from iraq's prime minister. really, criticizing the international community saying that it is not providing enough air intelligence to stem the islamic state's advances. so that is some tough criticism
12:35 am
from the iraqi prime minister, prime minister, but we are looking at really two things that come out of this conference. first they're going to talk about militarily they can defeat isis. that will be better coordination. weapons, air support. what the coalition partners along with iraq, they can do, the better, defeat and push back isis. the other thing, probably more important is going to be -- the political pressure that the international community puts on iraq to really cross the divide that has grown between the sunnis and the shiites. this really began when -- with a lot of mistrust, sunni and shiites. isis was able to roll into iraq and take a lot of ground quickly. because the sunnis weren't fighting back. when that advance was taking play. there is a lot uh mistrust there. you do have sunni fighters, fighting with the iraqi government. there is going to have to be
12:36 am
tough political negotiations. tough dialogue. between the two side to really bring them together if they hope to defeat isis. and ultimately, if they hope to have unified iraq in the future. these are two major things looking for coming out of this conference. >> of course as we wait for the arrival of the foreign ministers from those nations, let's go to the battlefield. let's talk about what is happening there. bring us up to date as iraqi forces and shiite militias and sunni tribal fighters try to work together as you mentioned there, there are problems in that alone. >> well there has been a lot of criticism that they aren't, the fighters on the front lines aren't getting the weapons, the ammunition, the supplies that they need to sustain the fight against isis. there has been a lot of international, in the national finger pointing between, iraq, the west, who is responsible for it. but what we are hearing from people on the front line.
12:37 am
that's where a lot of criticism is they dent hatch the means to keep the fight going. to really highlight that. we had the suicide attempt. outside of samarra, on an iraqi base, you had a tank, packed wit explosives, go at the base. definite. couldn't stop them. the tank drove through humvees to penetrate the base. the lack of weapons they have to stop the attack that have been devastating. the united states pledged to give 2,000 an type armor weapons to help fight that. really they need supplies to keep the fight going. >> they certainly do. ian lee, standing buy live in cairo, we await the 24 foreign ministers. in an effort to meet and stop isis militarily. many thanks to you, ian. >> there are so many pieces to the anti-isis fight. iraq's air force, for example is
12:38 am
part of the coalition. fighting islamic militants. arwa damon has a look at limitations the pie lot faced in every single battle. >> reporter: walking in on a single vehicle, the aircraft fires. in this case, a successful strike. but watch this other video. a direct hit to the front of the vehicle. then two men heading in theed by of the truck. jump out. iraq's strike capability limited and their strength. the air force being rebuilt from scratch has just around a dozen russian fighter jets and handful of cessnas to cover multiple front lines with isis that stretch across at least 8/3 of the country. we were just in the operations room where we were told on this day there have been no air strikes. that's because of the weather. there its yet another sandstorm that is blowing through.
12:39 am
isis does take advantage of that. and isis is also fully aware that even with coalition support. there are still very limited air capabilities. and so, when launching an attack on the significant target. isis will open multiple fronts. knowing they can't all be covered at once. the coalition strike are capable of significant damage. but when it comes to an adoptable entity like yis that cap >> they are using vehicles, they have, and now they are moving, they are hiding them, they are using the, the sometime they are moving without any weapons. [ indiscernible ] >> reporter: this is imagery from samarra.
12:40 am
operators watch the aftermath of a strike on a single vehicle. they're coming back. there are about 20 coming from the other side. one says. the suspected isis fighters swarm around. we killed sex of thix of them i strike. the body are loaded and eventually driven off. >> were you watching isis advance to ramadi. >> yes. >> but if you saw them advancing on ramadi why was there no strike? >> we saw him. we talked to him. and fire. we killed high numbers of them. >> reporter: how they were able to come from open road into ramadi, i don't understand. >> they were hiding themselves in the vehicles, now they are, not moving. not moving with the -- with the convoy. it was many vehicles. >> reporter: it is painfully clear the air campaign, coalition and iraqi, is barely causing isis to falter. arwa damon, cnn, baghdad.

12:45 am
criticism, errol. the health minister has apologized for initial reaction of authorities. the president here said more should have been done in the ear stages to contain this disease. now as we know almost 700 people are being quarantined. there is a big focus on stopping this from spreading any further. as we have the news of two deaths. the public is becoming increasingly concerned. let's have a listen to what some have to say. >> translator: i feel insecure that the authorities tend to cover up the seriousness of mers in south korea if i do not feel like going to the areas with my children where mers occurred. >> translator: people could die from the flu. people are not concerned much about it. however people are overreacting this time to mers. now, authorities are hoping that this spread can be conattend to people who had contact with others who are in medical
12:46 am
facilities, saying there may have been a chance this will not spread further throughout the public. the public are being told for preventative measures to avoid large crowds. consider wearing a face mask, and wash their hand often, errol. >> of course, understandable why the general public is concern. they just believe this virus is out there. they could catch it somehow. explain to us, that work that is being done to find i guess patient zero and really backtrack how this outbreak began and got to this point. we saw in the ebola outbreak in west africa, how medical officials try to reverse how the viruses spread. >> well, we know that this virus is prevalent in the middle east and patient zero that you refer to there traveled to the middle east and returned here to south korea. and visited more than one medical facility before it was
12:47 am
confirmed he had mers. this is the concern about the spread. more wasn't be being done then to make sure patient zero didn't stay. and more to have the patient spreading the disease within the medical facility. the two people who died shared ward. now the focus now on contanment. errol. >> previously. we have seen this in saudi arabia, a number of case. concerning for the asian region. kathy novak live from seoul. appreciate it. >> little bit of good news now. a new drug combination could mark a breakthrough in cancer treatment. an international study found the drugs can enable a patient's own immune system to find cancer cells and destroy them. >> this potentially is huge. our correspondent has the promising details. >> one of the deadliest forms of cancer. advanced melanoma is responsible for thousand of deaths around the world each year. pam smith was diagnosed with

12:49 am
the so it almost unmasks them. unveils them. the other works giving our immune system a boost. which means we have more immune cells to target these newly uncovered cancer cells. >> reporter: in almost 60% of cases, the disease was held in check or tumors shrank. >> an offering new hope to patients with advanced melanoma something massively need. the field in general is massive exciting and this new result is very, very encouraging. >> each better news. the treatment could work against other forms of cancer as well. scientists caution a lot more research needs to be done. many of those who took part in the study had major side effects. the drugs didn't produce the same positive results in all participants. but those involved in the study believe there is a chance that immunotherapy could revolutionize cancer treatment. fred pleitgen, cnn, london. we have more encouraging news, call this encouraging. vote are in for the restaurant named the best in the world.
