em, not so much. we let you keep an eye on your business from anywhere. the others? nope! get internet on our gig-speed network and add voice and tv for $34.90 more per month. call or go on line today. in just over 24 hours time, the u.s. president set to sit down with his russian counterpart as u.s. intelligence warns of russian threats to upcoming elections. plus this. hamas and islamic jihad say they have reached a ceasefire with israel after a serious spike in fighting along the gaza border. we'll have that report for you. also ahead this hour, france favored over underdog croatia, but both are going for the gold. the world cup final kicks off in
just six hours' time in the russian capital. we are live at cnn world headquarters in atlanta. we want to welcome our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm george howell, the cnn "newsroom" starts right now. at 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast, the president of the united states will leave his golf course resort in scott fland a few hours' time headed for helsinki for this historic summit with the russian president vladimir putin. he managed to squeeze in more golf there with his son eric. protesters came within shouting distance as they played. hanging over the summit is new evidence of russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. mr. trump says he'll raise the issue, he'll bring it up with president putin, but his latest tweet, well, it seems to point the finger at barack obama for
president trump says not dealing with it at the time. we are following this very important summit around the world. we have phil black in turnberry scotland and nic robertson live in helsinki. phil, first to you. tell us more about the president's time in scotland looking ahead to his time in hake sinky. >> we-- helsinki. >> he tweeted that he'd be spending two days of making calls, having meetings and hopefully playing some golf. as we sink right now, president trump is out playing golf on the course just behind us here at turnberry. he's only just moved out of our line of vision just in the last few moments, but over last half hour or so we've watched him play about three, three 1/2 holes of golf. we could show you some video there, he's wearing a black suit, a white cap as he's been making his way around this
course, one of three championship courses at the turnberry resort. he's driving his own golf buggy leading a convoy of at least 15 other buggies. it was difficult to keep track of, there could very well have been more than that. he looked relaxed, waved to some of the police officers that were standing guard that the perimeter to the resort grounds. and then continued to play on. difficult to make out precisely who he's playing with this morning. an impressive security presence here. the number of police officers at this perimeter did jump quite noticeably just in the minutes before he moved out on to the court. this is the second time that he has played this course in the last two hours -- last two days, i should say. and his time here at turnberry is fast coming to an end. he'll be leaving here in the next few hours. what else he has been doing here, we don't know. as i say, he was predicting meetings and calls, we can only presume that's been a big part of his time along with
preparation for this helsinki summit. in the last few hours having played golf again he should be leaving the turnberry resort and driving to the airport where air force one sits parked and ready to take off to fly him to helsinki. george. >> president trump preparing for this very important summit, getting in a little more golf before he heads to helsinki. phil black, stand by as we cross over to our colleague nic robertson. nic, for some context, a historic summit but this cloud hangs over it all. this latest indictment that squarely points the finger at russian state operative interfering in u.s. affairs and now the question, will mr. trump be assertive in defense of the united states or passive with mr. putin? >> reporter: so far we don't know. the indications that president trump has given over the past couple days when he's given press conferences has been that he's more likely to be lenient.
he's said that he'll raise the risch are he'll absolutely raise the issue. he said i'll raise the issue that you all like, that you all want. he's said that i will ask did you do it. don't do it again. and he said i expect president putin will deny it. what we do know is that last time or the first time they met face-to-face at the g-20 back in hamburg a year ago when president trump asked that question, putin denied it, they said there was no evidence and then very sort of quickly president trump took the decision we were told afterwards to move on, to president forward in the relationship. of course that say concern now for many people worrying that president trump will take the tame tact again. his comments at the moment have sort of indicated that he doesn't think that he can persuade president putin to take more responsibility or at least listen to the fact that there is evidence to support what president trump will tell him. but now there is that evidence in the form of those 12
indictments against 12 different former -- different russian military intelligence agents. that is an effort of the state to meddle in the united states elections in 2016. so president trump has the opportunity to put that evidence forward. we haven't heard him say that he will. and in the last 24 hours, we've heard from the secretary of homeland security kirsten nielsen saying that russia is engaged in the military efforts for the midterm elections coming up in the u.s. for the next couple of months. so if you will, president trump is now armed we've heard him say that meddling in 2016 was under president obama's watch, now he's being armed with information saying russia is doing it again under his watch. and the secretary of homeland security has said that this is an assault, an attack on american democracy and should not be allowed. so-called pressure, added pressure on president trump to
listen to his intelligence chiefs, to press president putin more robustly on this and the likelihood or the expectation that there would be sanctions on this attack on american democracy. >> one other question to you. given the importance of this meeting, there are many other topics at play from north korea to iran to syria. nuclear weapons, will these be important points of discussion? >> reporter: president trump has said that they will be. he said both countries are engaging in, you know, improving their weapons systems, upgrading their weapons systems. he feels that nuclear proliferation is one of the big issues happening on his watch and there's a real understanding and feeling more broadly in the diplomatic community that the issues of the strategic arms limitations agreements that have
expiration dates, that they really need to be addressed. that the two countries need to begin a dialogue about this. so president trump has indicated that that's something he wants to speak about. but the pressing issues are wu crane where the ceasefire's not holding, syria where the war's coming to and he where both the utilities and russ united states and russia need to be talk more actively to ensure there's longer stability. so these issues transcend the united states and russia. these are issues that affect many, many countries. >> nic robertson, thank you so much. and phil black, thank you both for the reporting and the context approximately weep ke-- keep in touch with you ahead of this summit. let's bring in our senior russian analyst with the international crisis group live in moscow this hour. a pleasure to have you here on the show. to get your perspective on this, ana, the mere fact that these two are meeting, this is a very
important summit. there are many issues at play that we just spoke about with our correspondents. but the broader question here, how important is this for president putin? because surely he has been focused on raising russia's stature, a position to be key in world affairs, world issues. does this execute that strategy? >> well, of course. i mean, by virtue of having the summit itself, by virtue of the fact that it was trump who was making these overtures to put tine a -- putin all along there are is all ready by the fact of having a summit in helsinki a major win for putin. next we've got -- we've got several things going on. we don't know quite what's going to come out of it. we do know that in terms of optics this is very likely going to be very good for putin because no matter what trump does or says, given his track record it's going to make putin
look good by comparison. in terms of the meddling, to what extent trump brings this up, to what extent putin responds, putin -- what putin's going to get out of this is that trump is going to believe him more than his own intelligence community. this is very important and, once again, showing just how much adult putin and the kremlin look in comparison. secondly, and that is more problematic, i don't think that the kremlin is really expecting any sears deals out of this. in fact, they're quite concerned that diplomatically, pragmatically speaking this is not the kind of leader that you can really expect to make a deal with given his unpredictability. and we're not really counting on any serious breakthroughs. >> well, we've heard president trump talk just a bit about this. he mentioned it during his time
in the united kingdom. i want to play that sound bite and let's talk about this here on the other side. >> i know you'll ask will we be talking about meddling. and i will absolutely bring that up. i don't think you'll have any gee, i did it, did i it, you got me from the won't be a perry mason herery don't think. you never know what happens. but i will absolutely firmly ask the question and hopefully we'll have a very good relationship with russia. >> and the question gleaning from that comment, what seems more important here is it about bringing up the, you know, russia meddling in the u.s. election? is it more about the relationship? keeping in mind that as our reporters have pointed out, there is concern that this could be happening again in the lead-up to the 2016 u.s. election, russian meddling possibly again. >> well, i mean, given that
trump has -- has called all of this fake news, that he has resisted this investigation, that he's doubted his own intelligence community, yes, i mean, it seems like for him the interest here is just to tick off the box that he asked putin, putin denied it, let's move on. this is wonderful for putin because, of course, yes, putin's going to deny it but it will accomplish several things for the kremlin and making the kremlin again look important, scary, and i dispensable. and once again be just showing how much in disarray the political community is in washington over these allegations. >> i want to get your perspective, of course, there in russia on the russian leader. he's been in that role for some time. he's been playing a long-game strategy, again, to raise russia's role as a vital player on the world stage even despite
a weak economy at this point. in your view, is this newly elected president of the united states prepared to play chess with mr. putin? >> i don't think this is going to be a game of chess among equals, if we're talking about a game of chess. and i think that putin understands this. there are ways in which putin can take advantage of him once again primarily through -- in terms of optics and he will do that as he's done before. in terms of major deals, i think hear the kremlin is not expecting much because it understands that there's only so far that you can take unpredictability, the dhiend we've se -- kind that we've seen from trump. russian officials would have liked to deal with a true artist of the deal. they like dealing with pragmatic republican leaders who are more about striking deals than about values.
but it's clear that trump has not proven to be that kind of leader and like -- raises a lot of advantages for the kremlin, but in terms of deals or breakthroughs, not really. >> ana, we appreciate your time and perspective live there in moscow. we'll keep in touch with you as the world watches on. thank you. >> thank you. >> fighting flares on at the gaza border. but there may be a ceasefire agreement between militant groups and israel. latest from jerusalem ahead. . plus, we're also following events in moscow ahead of the world cup final. cnn live in russia. get ready. i landed.

fla . welcome back to "newsroom," i'm george howell. in the middle east an apparent ceasefire is in place after a day of heavy fighting between israel and militant groups. hamas and islamic jihad say though have reached a ceasefire with israel. the israeli prime minister's office has no comment about those reports. following the story, our ian lee is live in jerusalem. ian, can you tell us anything more about this reported ceasefire? >> reporter: well, george,
basically that it's hold organize it appears to be holding right now. it's been about nine, ten hours since the last exchange of fire where we saw mortars, rockets, and israel retaliating with these air strikes. but yesterday was the greatest bombing campaign in gaza since the 2014 war with dozens of what mass targets hit according to israeli military. the israeli military also saying that at least 200 rockets and mortars were fired into israel. you had two palestinians killed in gaza, a dozen injured, and then four israelis injured in this exchange. but we are also hearing from the israeli prime minister this morning saying that there is no ceasefire as long as these -- these fire kites, fire balloons continue to cross over from gaza into israel lighting these fields on fire. and we heard this from other
israeli politicians too. they say any ceasefire has to include -- any cessation of violence has to include these kites and balloons. so we're hearing this morning that there have been some of them, so we'll see how this plays out in the coming hours. but we also need to point out how pivotal egypt has been in bringing calm back to this area. egypt has played a very pivotal role in the past as well bringing the sides, talking to them, this is what we're hearing, to really stop this before it escalates further into potentially a war. george. >> many of us have followed your reporting over the last several weeks leading up to this. but, again, if you could explain the cop flikts thnflicts that h to us this point. >> really to get down to the root of it, it is the situation in gaza, this blockade that is on the gaza strip that makes it difficult to bring in certain
goods, certain items. this is being imposed by israel as well as egypt. and when you talk to people, this is why they say they protest. and these protests are along that border fence that separates gaza and israel. and since march we have seen dozens of palestinians killed by israeli soldiers. the palestinians protesting with rocks, with molotov cocktails. throwing grenades. this is creating a tense situation and that's where we're getting these flare-ups where we will have these retaliations, we'll see rockets, more the tars fired and israel coming in with the air strikes. it just shows how this builds up into the conflict that we see between the two sides. >> ian lee following this reported ceasefire. we'll keep in touch with you as you monitor developments there. on the korean peninsula, u.s./north korean officials are meeting in the demilitarized
zone. they're working out details of the return of some 200 service men killed during the korean war. they make up some of the 5,300 service members unaccounted for after the war. this is part of the agreements signed by both leaders of the countries in last month's summit. the uninvestigate mostly in southern and central iraq, some demonstrators are peaceful there but others have turned violent. they're fed one thing like unemployment and lack of services in the country. they are staging rally and they've stormed government office dollar offices. you can see iraq remains fractured despite declaring isis defeated. the terrorist group's impact is still being felt in the country. many of the religious minority
had to escape the country to survive. as one tells us, their hardships did end there. >> i think it was simple life like we were happy to get out. we had no idea that on the 3rd of august or life would change forever, like a living hell. >> this is a man from iraq. in 2014, ice sis fighters swept through their villages. >> all people died. many of my family, my relatives and friends were captured and killed by isis. >> they butchered the men, enslaved the women, and
conscripted the children, wiping out whole families. to this day, no one knows how many of them were killed and how many are still missing. he is one of the lucky ones. >> i have run with thousands of people to the mountain. then we get safety to australia by foot. >> you walked? >> we walked from the mountain to syria. >> dunning them devil worshippers, isis set out to decimate this already dwindling minority. like many of them, he suffered the pain of betrayal. as his muslim neighbors under threat from isis turned against him. a persecution he says followed them even as he fled across europe all the way to the makeshift migrant cap in calais. >> when a group of kurds people
found out we were not praying in the mosque, they captured us, they took us to our small caravan and they beat us up badly, really badly. luckily there was a big fire broke out in the camp. >> that saved your life. now finally in the uk, the british have rejected his request for asylum. >> they said there are safe places in iraq. i said not for our people, it's not safe for us. they had no idea how how muchmu danger we are. >> but help has come. a nurse in cornwall has taken
his place. >> there are so many problems and there are no big ngos helping there. it's incredible to me. if i can do it from cornwell, why can they not help some. >> she sets up her own organization, emergency support to provide medical care and aid to the most vulnerable. >> they're so threatened. there's probably 800,000 left in the world scattered like seeds all over the world. >> her own relatives are among the scattered. one sister is in a refugee camp in greece, another in a camp in kurdistan while one of his cousins remains in isis captivity. despite the nation's ruling what happened to them is a genocide. the uk does not currently discontinuing tweesh between them and other iraqgy the --
iraqis. all can he do is wait and hope, the alternative? >> these people never hurt anybody. so i think we did deserve this fate. >> cnn, london. >> thank you. his hearing is set for tuesday, that's the day for the hearing. we've reached out to the home office and they told us they don't comment on ongoing cases. now, two student protesters in nicaragua, they are dead after pro government forces launched an attack there. students were inside a university in the country's capital. they escaped to a church after an assault started there. gunfire trapped 100 students, priests, and journalists inside the church for several hours. the organization of american states says at least 273 people have been killed since antigovernment protests started in april. cnn following a big day around the world, the world cup.

leader is set for monday. hamas and islamic jihadists, they have reached a ceasefire with israel, this following a day of heavy fighting along the gaza border. the prime minister's office has no comment about those reports so far. palestinians say two teenagers were killed in an israeli air strike. civil unrest spreading against southern and central iraq. they stormed a building saturday, they're upset about issues like high unemployment, lack of services. there are reports security forces are on high alert there. the british prime minister theresa may has a warning for her brexit supporters to watch out on brexit or it won't happen at all. those comments on sunday for her plan to least european union. and speaking to the bbc sunday, theresa may also revealed that donald trump's advice to her was to sue the eu rather than
negotiate on brexit. i don't know about you, but i cannot wait to see what happens. we've had more than a month of the world cup. it all comes down to this. the tournament final just hours away in moscow. croatia looking for an upset as they face, again, face-off against the tournament favorite france. cnn's got this match covered from all angled. our alex thomas live in moscow. melissa bell in paris and warren lieberman in croatia. let's talk about this unlikely matchup, certainly croatia an underdog going into this. a lot of expectations on france, but it will an interesting match to say the least. >> yeah, when you come down just one final match, anything in theory could happen, george. so croatia have a chance but
they're definitely massive underdogs having reached a world cup final for the first time in their history. remember, very small country in comparison to the other 31 teams. and, you know, 30 teams have been here, tried and failed to win the world cup. they're heading home -- two countries, france and croatia. here here at the moscow city skyline including the luzhniki stadium where the game willing in four hours time. there will be a performance of the official world cup song "live it up" featuring men singer and actor will smith. a huge security operation here under way here as you can imagine because of all the vips, including the russian president, vladimir putin who will attend the game as well as the french president emmanuel macron. as well as having this wonderful scene behind us here, what you can't see behind my cameraman about a hundred meters or so that way is one of the official
fifa fan zones for 100,000 to watch on a big screen. there will be almost 80,000 in the stadium behind me and the global tv aud dwlaens organizers say could be as much as a billion. but, you know, sometimes that gets overestimated, probably more like to be hundreds of millions. still certainly if you leave the multisport olympics to one side, the biggest single sporting event on the planet and france and croatia within touching distance of glory, george. >> a lot of people watching to say the least. alex thomas, stand by for us. thank you. now let's bring in our colleague melissa bell. in paris, the streets of paris, just coming off bastille day there, if france wins, does the celebration just go on through the weekend? >> reporter: that's right. and you wouldn't believe, george, there's more than five hours go before this match kicks off judging by the party that's already gone here. the fans are out, people are tooting their horns as they pass in the car. and that is because france
believes that this time, george, they are in with a real chance. and there has been really a sort of spring in the step of power ever since they won in the semifin semifinal earlier this week. that was the big match with belgium, so strong fort wayne sides. as you can see behind me, a great deal of enthusiasm. this part of paris will be, if france wins, a massive party tonight. but first of all, about 100,000 fans will be gathered around the eiffel tower for a giant fan zone there to watch the match. these guys of course will be amongst them. how are you feeling? >> very good day for us. >> for football. >> we win. >> reporter: you can see he's the hero of the hour. we have his youngest fan with us here, tell us, how are you feeling about it?
are they going to win. >> of course they're going to win. >> >> reporter: they have a great deal of hope and five hours go, france will be gutting if they don't win this particular final. >> great deal of excitement there. melissa bell, thank you. let's cross over now to our oren lieberman. oren, on the streets of croatia, i've got a buddy over there who's really pulling for croatia, this underdog team. but the excitement there i imagine is palpable. >> reporter: yound dog is the word they've become very used to here. they're used to that term. they've been underdogs in all of the elimination until now and they're not afraid of that status once against against the favorites, france. this is where tens of thousands of supporters will come to watch. this will absolutely fill up
this. the big screen, there have been songs, a couple football songs that we've herd, one just ended a short time ago. it won't be all that long until will is another one. and let me take you around to the main piece here. this is a croatian national hero and he has been dressed foup for the game here. he's ready, the fans are ready, and they know the odds are against him. they know they're not the favorites here and the team has played extra time in multiple games and yet they're not afraid. many people say we acknowledge that france is the better team, more rounded team, but we have heart and that's something the french don't have. that's why they're hopeful about the game. i will point out one more thing. in everybody we've spoken with from the fans to some of the visitors here, more importantly perhaps some of the former coaches and trainers, some of the players on the croatian team they say regardless of the outcome, win or loose, croatia will have a celebration tonight. that tells you how proud everyone here is of how far the
croatian national team has gotten. >> it say talented team. they've come quite a long way. we'll have to see what happens. thank you. stand by. let's bring back in alex thomas. alex, want to get your perspective here. let's describe these two teams. i mean, the talent on either, how do you see this coming together? >> reporter: france are going to -- as they are one of the heavily tipped teams coming into this world cup because they've been world champions in the past and the quality of the players at their disposal. their main stars are pole pogba. the graceful midfielder who plays for manchester united, also killian, the world's most exciting teenage player, the most expensive teenager after he moved from montco. also alongside him in france is attacker antwon degreesman for madrid and does it successfully. he was targeted by some of the
biggest clubs on the planet. there's no doubt that france have the talent but croatia have good players too. real madrid luca mod drich, barcelona raqqa tich, and also marian man azure stack itch, the current eye stahlian champions. oren pointed to one huge obstacle as well as getting past the french, that's the additional time they've played. all three of their knockout games have gone to extra time and two of them to a penalty shootout. it all adds up to them having played one match more than france and they've had a day tlos prepare. but it's a one-off game, anything can happen, george. >> alex thomas with a beautiful view in moscow at the stadium behind him. the excitement on the streets with melissa bell and in the city center with oren lieberman, the excitement, the stats, we've got it all.
thanks and we'll keep in touch with you all. now the wimbledon men's final, djokovic will go head to head with kevin anderson. djokovic hoping to win the title. and in the women's final, kerber defeated serena williams sta with a 6-3, 6-3 victory in straight sets. the duchess of cambridge and sussex known to many as kate and meghan were in the royal box. the duchess of sussex cheered on williams who is a close friend of hers. it's a strange arrest video to say the very least. two police officers asked heads or tails using a coin flip to determine whether to arrest a woman. we'll have that story ahead for you. plus the story that's worth a thousand words and then some. we'll bring you the story of this mother and daughter's

back off. [ bleep ]. >> back off. [ bleep ]. >> take your phone and get out. now. this is private property. get out. >> that's the video. there's still a lot to sort out, at least four people were arrested, several officers were injured. chicago's civilian office of police accountability says it will investigate the shooting that led to the unrest there. now two police officers here in the u.s. state of georgia, they've been caught on camera joking about whether to arrest a woman based on a coin toss. cnn's kalee har tong explains. >> the decision to arrest or release a speeding driver in the state of georgia debated between two officers with the help of a coin flip app on a cell phone. listen to what this body cam captures. >> heads or tails? >> okay. >> this is tail, right?
>> yeah. >> so release. >> 23. >> the two officers you hear in that body cam video, they've both been placed on administrative leave. the local police department saying they've opened up an internal investigation. they did so as soon as they learned of this incident. the police chief has gone so far as to say he's appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision making something as important as the arrest a person. she was speeding driefving down roads that were wet after it had rained. she was pulled over. then a discussion ensued inside the officer patrol car, would they arrest her or release her in they turned to a virtual coin flip to make that decision. what's interesting when you make the back and forth, the coin lands on tails which meant they would release her. she was arrested anyways. she was charged with reckless
driving, speeding. when the prosecutor saw this footage, all of those charges were dismissed. >> thank you for the reporting. the u.s. government is investigating whether children in their custody are eligible to be reunited with their parents. the court order deadline is july 26th and for the kids it's a terrifying wait illustrated by the recordings of what we've heard. one 6-year-old girl sobbing for her mother.

icebergs are famous as has toords ships, but now there's one big iceberg off greenland that's threatening a whole village. our meteorologist derek van dam is leer to show us. >> that's 11 million mega tons that's parked itself off the western coastline the greenland. here it is. notice closely on your tv screen what's happening to that iceberg. that's a caving event. that's when ice breaks away from the original iceberg. there are dhaerconcerns that ri temperatures and warmer weather
could cause more of this iceberg to break apart. what i want you to notice is the last 45 seconds of this video, which we'll fast forward, put it on the screen behind me. this caving event forced with the waves that moved on shore, and also it forced this sma thi community of 170 inhabitants to move. you can imagine the amount of water that's displaced by that large of an iceberg. how much? ice bertions c icebergs can be size of the a stadium, but that's only what you and i see above the surface of the water. 80% to 90% of an iceberg is below the surface so you can't actually see it. by the way, the iceberg can't size of a stadium. the ideal outcome for this iceberg off the coast of western greenland is for it to get caught up in what is known as the current and it will be basically pushed off to sea, crisis over, not a problem.
but, if mother nature doesn't play along, rises the temperatures and allows for more melting and more caving events to happen, the potential for a tsunami exists for that sparsely populated area for greenland. not what we want to see. makes for some interesting visuals. the sides of that particular iceberg is roughly 10 to 11 mega tons. that's an incredibly large and incredibly heavy piece of ice. if you go to a little bit smaller after an iceberg they have interesting names known as a bergy by the, that's.01 of an iceberg. this is a good picture to leave you with as well. this was off the coast of iceland a few years ago. but just to watch that video as that's happened. i've seen an iceberg cav when i was on an alaskan cruise once, it also creates quite a noise as well. >> thank you.
