hi. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm robyn curnow. coming up on the show, 20 years ago the world changed forever on this september 11th. somber reflections of course across america, honoring the nearly 3,000 lives lost and the promise to never forget. and they are just three countries in the world that have
mandated covid vaccines for all adults. we'll show you how it's working for them. plus, how an unranked teenaged qualifier walked into tennis' biggest stage and won the tournament without dropping a set. we have that story. >> live from cnn center, this "cnn newsroom" with robyn curnow. >> it was a somber day across america as the nation stopped to remember the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives on 9/11, exactly 20 years ago. [ bagpipes playing ] >> for the families of the victims, the tragedy remains a vivid memory, undimmed by time. the nation's collective loss was captured by a young girl as she spoke directly to the uncle she
never met and imagined how he might be today. >> my uncle firefighter michael christopher. even though i never met you in person, i still miss you a lot. mom always tells me the crazy, fun things you did. and i'm sure if you were here, i'd probably be doing them with you. >> this is a look at the 9/11 memorial at ground zero in new york. deep fountains bathed in yellow light where the world trade center once stood. ♪ amazing grace ♪ >> the 20th anniversary ceremonies were also held at the pentagon and in pennsylvania. all of them attended by the president and the first lady. we began our coverage with arlette saenz at the white house. arlette? >> reporter: president biden
visited all three sites of the terror attacks, marking the 20th anniversary since those attacks on saturday. the president started his day in new york city at ground zero where he was accompanied at the 9/11 memorial by former president barack obama and former presidents bill clinton. they stood at that site as each of the names were read of those killed in the terror attack 20 years ago. the president also stopped in shanksville, pennsylvania, to lay a wreath at the site where flight 93 crashed into that rural pennsylvania field after some passengers overtook the hijackers who had hoped to land that plane in the capitol. instead, it crashed and killed those on board in pennsylvania 20 years ago. the president wrapped up his day at the pentagon, laying a wreath there with vice president kamala harris. and in a video released ahead of the 9/11 remembrance, the president called for a moment of unity. and as he was speaking with
reporters on september 11th, he shared the story of how one of his friends lost a loved one, a son in those tower attacks in new york city. and he recalled the emotions that many of these families are feeling on this anniversary. take a listen. >> it's a tough day for him and everybody who lost somebody. and, you know, i know you heard me say it before, and i'll probably get criticized for saying it again, but these memorials are really important, but they're also incredibly difficult for the people who are affected by them, because it brings back the moment you got the phone call. it brings back that instant you got the news. no matter how many years go by. >> reporter: so the president trying to strike some empathy there on this 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. the president calling many of the actions of people that day genuine heroism. article let arlette saenz, cnn,
white house. the fbi has released a newly released document detailing the september attacks and whether the saudi government provided support for the hijackers. 2016 documents describe multiple contacts between the hijackers and several saudi associates in the u.s. the saudi government has long denied any involvement in the attack and the saudi embassy previously said it welcomed the release of the records. more documents are expected in the days ahead after president biden ordered the justice department to review previously withheld information about the attacks. and the war that began in the wake of those deadly attacks has only just ended. less than two weeks after the final u.s. military withdrawal, afghanistan's economy is in a shambles, to put it simply. prices are high and money is scarce. the taliban are seeking international legitimacy and have formed an interim government, but its hardline
makeup will compromisization. one taliban police chief told cnn that nothing has changed. >> translator: there is no difference between the laws 20 years ago and now. only back then, the u.s. was too powerful. they were doing a lot of propaganda. >> or with arwa damon joins us . the sound of that afghan police commander saying basically, they'll stick with how things were 20 years ago. that is exactly why so many afghans fled in such desperation, because they feared this kind of attitude would endure and be cemented again. >> that's right, robyn, and israel also why so many afghans still want to flee. those who did manage to get out,
get on one of those planes, or get out before the taliban took over are to be considered sadly among the lucky ones, because the vast majority of the population is currently trapped inside afghanistan, and the conversation on a global level is not about how to help afghans reach a country where they can actually live with freedom, democracy, pursue a future, especially for women and girls, but the conversation, if you listen to the rhetoric coming to the west from leaders there is more about how to keep afghans trapped inside afghanistan so that these countries in the west don't have to deal with another refugee crisis. those words most certainly, robyn, must be chilling for so many across that country. not to mention contradictory and confusing, because we actually don't yet have a very clear idea of exactly how the taliban is going to rule. we know it's going to be a
radical interpretation of shara l sharia law. we just don't know how radical that's going to be at this stage. >> or with a damon live in istanbul, thank you very much for that. so despite some u.s. states showing a decline in recent covid infections, others are struggling to stay on top of a surge that is certainly taking a devastating toll. the u.s. averaged more than 1100 covid deaths each day over the last week. as you can see from this graph, that's according to the centers for disease control. the recent increase prompted u.s. president joe biden to lay out a plan on thursday for vaccine mandates. he's hoping to curb a spread that is largely being driven by the delta variant and the unvaccinated. . >> my message to unvaccinated americans is this. what more is there to wait for? what more do you need to see? we've been patient, but our
patience is wearing thin. and your refusal has cost all of us. >> mr. biden's new vaccine requirements could apply to as many as 100 million americans. even so, the mandate is not as sweeping as in some countries. three countries of which are acquiring their entire adult population to be inoculated. indonesia, which reportedly has more than four million covid cases so far. fi each have reported no locally transmitted cases, and they certainly want to keep it that way. joining me now to discuss this is michael baker, professor of public health in wellington, new zealand. hi, sir. good to see you. so these blanket vaccine mandates, how are they working in these countries? i know they're very specific examples, but what do you take from the way they've implemented these blanket mandates?
>> well , those three countries you mentioned are outliers in terms of the whole approach to covid-19. turkmenistan isn't reporting cases or its vaccine coverage. so we don't know how the policy works there. micronesia of course is a great success story. they've excluded the virus entirely. an elimination approach. but the vaccine coverage is still low. and i think indonesia, again, has struggled to get high vaccine coverage for a lot lot of factors. and i'm not sure that this mandate is really making any difference there. >> do you see, though, other countries slowly taking this decision to mandate all adults? i know italy is potentially looking at it, weighing this up as well. >> well, almost every country on earth has some kind of vaccine mandate. obviously starting with occupational groups, border
worker, health care worker, people in essential industries. and also they are adding mandates for certain situations. and you think about international travel, domestic travel, traveling on public transport, these are situations we are seeing these policies happening. and obviously, this is expanding to a wider range of occupational settings. so one way or another, vaccine mandates are really very common across the globe. and obviously they're important, particularly when you have occupational health and safety issues or where you have workforce groups that interface with the public. i think we're going see more of vaccine mandates over time. >> so what you're saying is this is more going to be sort of a patchwork of ever increasing, ever widening mandates, like here in the states, where, you know, i think governments and leaders are trying to get as many people within the net
rather than saying, listen, all adults over the age of 16 or 18 need to go and get a jab? >> yeah, i think so. and one of the points now, of course, is in the workplace. because i think people may justifiably saying i'm not comfortable going to work, if my work mates are not vaccinated. so i think that pressure, that will be another key moment. and i think over time, i think everyone is getting more comfortable with the idea of vaccination. ultimately, i think it's a stick too far to mandate vaccination for everyone, but i think this patchwork, as you say will over time result in a large portion of the adult population being vaccinated. and of course the next question is about vaccination of school-aged students. again, to protect other people in the classroom. >> yeah, but i mean even here in the u.s., i know things are very different where you are in new
zealand. but politically, there is a huge pushback to what the biden administration is doing in terms of mandates. how enforceable, no matter how good the intention is, how enforceable do you think these ever increasing large mandates that are going to be rolled out are? >> well, i think it's really important that mandates are not used as a substitute for dealing with the essentials. and that's still about vaccine supply, making vaccination very accessible, dealing with misinformation and disinformation, and working with communities. and many populations are achieving very high vaccine coverage without resorting to mandates. and i think the problem with mandates is they may erode trust. they may feed into what is clearly misinformation, that this is somehow a conspiracy. so i think it's very important that mandates are we hold off
relying on mandates and we actually deal with the real essentials first. >> well, either way, it looks like we've still got a long way to go. i really appreciate you joining us. michael baker there, professional of global health. thank you for bringing us your expertise. >> thank you. >> good to see you. in the coming days, british prime minister boris johnson is expected to lay out strategy for managing covid throughout the winter. according to a statement, vaccines will continue to be the first line of defense supported by new treatments, testing, and the monitoring of variants. downing street said it also expects to confirm the details of a booster plan with plans to begin this week. and canada's federal election is just eight days away. the votes will decide whether justin trudeau remains prime minister. despite contentious moments during the debate, the top five leaders have released a united message about fighting the pandemic. listen to mr. trudeau and the
conservative leader. >> we're all in this together. >> we've come so far in the fight against covid. it's time to finish this pandemic for good. so get vaccinated. if you know someone who hasn't, talk to them. >> for our kids, for our communities, for our economy, it's how we get forward together. >> vaccines are safe and effective for use. vaccines are the best way for you to protect yourself, your family, and your community. so get vaccinated. ahead on cnn, how two teenagers battled their way into the u.s. women's open final and captivated the world. this is just the most fantastic story. can't wait to talk about it. that's next.

new york marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11. sports' carolyn manno reports now. >> reporter: saturday at the u.s. open was an emotional day for many of the fans who were in attendance here in new york. on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, fans had a chance to remember the past, and they also got a glimpse into the future, at least as it relates to tennis on the women's side by way of a new major champion, and remarkably, a young woman who wasn't even born on that fateful day, 18-year-old emma raducanu of great britain came into this tournament ranked outside of the top 100 players in the world and made history here as the first player male or female to advance out of the qualifying rounds and make it all the way to a major final. an improbable, incredible run that not even she could have predicted. >> it still hasn't sunk in, to be honest, because after the match, i haven't really had a moment to stop and embrace
everything that's just happened. i've enjoyed every moment of it, and i've had such a supportive team. and we've just -- time flies when you're having fun. so that's exactly what happened. for the grand slam final here to have two of us that are young and coming through, it definitely shows how strong the future of tennis is, and hopefully we'll be able to follow in the footsteps of some of the legends i've played or are playing right now. >> raducanu's parents weren't able to be here in new york in person to celebrate such a major career milestone for their daughter. and when i asked her what she is excited to do most when she does have the chance to finally get home after seven weeks on the road, she said i just want to give my parents a hug. something that you might expect from an 18-year-old who is now a big star. in new york, carolyn manno, cnn. well, patrick snell joins me now. hi, pat. what a -- what an amazing story.
emma is quite -- very much a part of the future. what impressed you about her performances here in new york? >> you know, robyn, no exaggeration to say the miracle of new york city. nobody saw this coming. unshakeable self belief. she was coolness personified. at the first qualifier, get, this when you think about it, it's more surreal. first qualifier ever to win a grand slam. not even dropping one set. in my opinion, both of these finalists absolutely amazing. fernandez more than playing her part. she should be rightly proud of what she's achieved. raducanu really taking the game from the very beginning, getting the job done in straight sets, and, look, look at that emotion there. she can't believe it. she said in the buildup to this final that she didn't even think she'd be there through the end of the tournament, that she had already booked her flight home, didn't know if she was going to get through the first three rounds in qualifying.
what does she go and do? wins the new york open at the very first time of asking. 6-4, 6-3. another straight sets victory for raducanu, who was born in canada, and she was born to romanian and chinese parents, but she moved to the uk when she was just 2 years of age. an incredible story. look, these interest stats, and the stats don't lie. they are incredible, just to put a bit more gloss on them. first british woman to win a slam since 1977 when virginia wade won wimbledon. wade, by the way, in the crowd there in the big apple to witness her historic win. and the youngest grand slam champ since maria sharapova no less in 2004. she went into the u.s. open 150 in the world, and this is utterly life-changing, robyn. she is about to become 23 in the world. but you know what? her life just changed forever. >> it certainly did. and she is not only -- she wasn't the only big game that
we're going to watch this weekend. novak djokovic of course, all eyes on him in this big quest for history. >> yeah. later on today it's all eyes on the men's final. so much on the line for the serbian top ranked men's player. he is going or the a men's record 21st grand slam title. he had to work hard to get into the final. the five-setter friday night against alex vera of germany in the semis. next up, it's the russian dangerous opponent, daniil medvedev. he reached the final two years ago losing to a thriller. djokovic 34 years of age now seeking also the calendar year slam. what is that? that's winning all four major tournaments in the very same year. last man to do that, the legendary australian rob laver back in 1969. and also winning slam number 21, if he can get the job done, it would see djokovic surpassing two other players of the game.
rafa and roger fedder. jo djokovic taking inspiration from kobe bryant. >> he said what it is why should i be happy right now? job is not done. so, you know, he has been someone that i was probably millions of athletes and people around the world have been looking up to him and admiring him. so that's kind of an attitude i have. job is not done. excitement is there. motivation is there without a doubt. probably more than ever. but i have one more to go. >> yeah, robert, you can see the steely focus there, can't you, in his eyes. you know what he said? after beating vera friday night, he said he is going to play today's final. he is going to treat it as if it's the last match of his career. i think that focus really does say it all. >> one more to go.
the job is not done. wow, you're right about that steeliness. patrick, good to see you. thanks, my friend. so some of britain's most famous citizens are also phrasing emma raducanu's big win at the u.s. open. queen elizabeth ii called emma's victory a remarkable achievement at such a young age. prime minister boris johnson tweeted "you showed extraordinary skill, poise, and guts, and we are all hugely proud you have." and the princess of wales and duchess of cornwall tweeted congratulations on your u.s. open win. what a fantastic achievement. to all of our international viewers, i'm going to hand you over to the team inventing tomorrow. that is next. but for those in the u.s. we return to our top story, honoring the victims of the 9/11 attacks which was 20 years ago, and also a hearing from a generation who will never know them.

this is ground zero in lower manhattan following saturday's commemoration of the 9/11 attacks exactly 20 years ago. nearly 3,000 people died in those attacks, representing more than 90 countries. ceremonies were also held in pennsylvania and at the pentagon. president biden and the first lady visited all three sites to pay their respects to the people who died in each place. the grief and sorrow remain deep, even affecting family members who never got to meet their loved ones. >> and my grandfather martin john coghlin. even though i never got to meet you, i will always carry on your
legacy and spirit. i'll never fret you. >> and my uncle gary, i love you and wish you were here. my siblings and i will be a beacon of your memory for many years to come. >> and my aunt, not a day goes by without you being missed and loved. i've never gotten to meet you, but i'm sure we would have gotten along so well with you as my aunt. you have gone too soon, but the memory of you will forever be in our hearts. >> and my uncle, lukasz, who i never met but i miss very dearly. my mom always talked about how much of an amazing brother you were. we were so sad you had to go so soon and so young, but i'll love you forever, and you'll never be forgotten. >> each family lost someone precious to them. firefighters and police lost also legions of beloved colleagues. seeing the victims' names etched in stone is a heartbreaking experience. and for those who survived, really, life has never been the same again as jim acosta meets
with some of them. jim? >> reporter: 20 years later, at ground zero. the grief is still palpable. [ bagpipes playing ] here in lower manhattan, where the twin towers of the world trade center once stood, the lives lost are never forgotten. thanks to a community of survivors keeping the memories of the fallen alive. now retired new york city firefighter brian maguire was working as a paramedic that day as he watched the second plane slam into the towers before rushing to the scene. within hours, friends and family were gone, along with the 3,000 who died in new york, at the pentagon and in shanksville, pennsylvania. >> 11 rescue members were killed. mike was driving. lieutenant harvey harrell, all
these members here worked the night into the day, or the day tour. and they killed all 11. there was only one survivor from that firehouse that day, louis fate. and i was honored to see him last week. >> he is still with us? >> still with us, yes. bill is my hero. they were all great guys. lieutenant harvey harrell, jeff palazzo, he was a younger member of the company. he was also actually in the coast guard. nikki rossimondo. his nickname was nikki love. he had the biggest smile on his face. you will never see a man with a bigger smile. john bergen, big football player for the fire department team. he was getting ready to open up a bar a few weeks before the world trade center happened. all great guys.
>> heroes. >> absolutely. >> heroes. >> never forget. it's like yesterday. we miss our friends. >> mcguire works with others to help with cancer plaguing tens of thousands of plirvegs firefighters and other survivors to this day. it must still affect you to think about the people who were lost. what comes to mind? >> every day. we're the lucky ones. a lot of our friends have died from 9/11 from cancer. it affects every firefighter, every first responder every day. i'm happy to wake up and be with my family. >> reporter: then there are the lower manhattan office workers who just happened to be caught up in the chaos of the crashing towers and the aftermath. some of them are still showing up at health faires to learn about how they can bet help too. ken mueller was diagnosed with kidney cancer years after he
walked through the dust that coated everything in sight. >> when i finally got home that night, my wife said that i was covered with dust everywhere. by the time i left in the late -- like around 5:00 or 6:00 that day, water street was six inches of it looked like snow. it was six inches of ash down water street. and that's pretty far from the world trade center site itself. >> reporter: attorney michael bayerische works with the survivors battling the linger health fallout. >> i was down here. even after the epa told us the air was safe, i knew it wasn't. i wanted to do my part and reopen my office. and ever since, my secretary leana died at 47 of breast cancer. my parallel also died of kidney cancer. five other people in my office got cancer. we're a microcosm of every other office. and at least we know about these programs. the vast majority don't. >> reporter: so many of the stories are also told at the 9/11 museum, where columns
from the trade center and a mutilated fire engine stands silently, as vivid reminders of the violence unleashed on 9/11. but museum president alice greenwald says there is a message for visitors that towers over everything. that there once was a time when the nation came together and stood united. >> this attitude of it isn't about me, it's about us, that we're in this together, that we can help one another, that we can be of service to our community and our nation? that's a lesson i want people to come away from this museum thinking about, that particularly at a moment when we are so polarized and so fragmented as a society. we know how to do that. the question we want people to ask themselves, does it take an event like 9/11 to remind us how to be the human beings we have the capability of being? this past year we saw a little bit of the same thing in response to covid. those people standing on their balconies, clapping and cheering at 7:00 every night in new york
for the frontline responders. that was 9 /12. that was that moment. >> it was fleeting, though. >> it was fleeting. i think the task we have as human beings is to ask ourselves what is it that gets us to be what we have the capability of being as good human beings? >> the lessons from 9/11 are also being passed from parents to their children. as brian mcguire told us, his teenaged son is now preparing to become a firefighter, just like his dad. >> my son is 18 years old. wasn't born, but just seeing what i'm going through, i think he understands how it's still affecting people today. and i'm glad he is taking my footsteps to be a fireman. he just graduated the fire academy and is going to be a firefighter, and i'm proud to see that he is going to carry firefighting tradition on in our family. >> reporter: mcguire also remembers the sense of unity and patriotism that rose from the ashes in the days following 9/11.
>> hundreds of people. hundreds of people were waving americans flags. >> reporter: 20 years later, the survivors of 9/11 are fighting to keep that memory alive too. [ bagpipes playing ] former president george w. bush used his remarks at the site of one of the 9/11 attacks to call out violent homegrown extremists. take a listen to this. >> and we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within. there is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. but then there is disdainful flowerism in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national
symbols. they are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them. >> currently more guilty pleas are rolling in from those accused of taking part in the january 6 inside rec which george bush was referring to there. among the latest seven defendants to plead guilty is a man who threatened house speaker nancy pelosi. authorities say he had texted a relative that he was thinking about shooting pelosi in the head on live tv at an event she'd be attending. and in several hours' time, opponents will make a pushback against brazilian president bolsonaro. the president has been called the trump of the tropics, and as isa soares now reports, he lives up to that name in his political strategy. >> reporter: splashed across the big screen, brazil's conservatives logistic to the american right for inspiration. >> do you go the path of

. >> as the calls for his impeachment grow louder, bolsonaro continues to fight for political survival, using the armed forces to project power with a military parade recently in front of the presidential palace. enough to rattle some of brazil's political dissonance. a former member of brazil's communist party, emily natal says she was a victim of torture during the country's brutal dictatorship which lasted 21 years. is brazil's democracy at risk,

>> good to see you too, robyn. we're getting our first images out of taiwan. this is actually a green island, a small island to the southeast of the main part of taiwan. you can see it. i've highlighted it so you can get a sense of where this is. and the latest radar out of taiwan is showing that the majority of the storm is now moving away from the northeast coast of taiwan. and it's headed for southeast china. in fact, some of these outer bands from the storm are beginning to impact fujian province. so we'll be watching that increase throughout the day today and into tomorrow. this typhoon, chanthu, has 125-mile-an-hour winds. so it's basically the same as a category 3 hurricane. very compact, though. you can kind of see it right there. the eye very, very visible as it continues to move to the north. and that's what we'll be watching over the next couple of days. the forecast track from the joint typhoon warning center shows two things that really caught my attention. first, the storm continues to move north.
even though it missed landfall in taiwan, it's going to be hard to miss hitting a part of southeast china. the second thing i notice is while it slows down in the next couple of days. so it makes that approach. and that's going to be bad news. once it gets to southeast china near shanghai, it's going to slowly take its time moving away and headed toward the korean peninsula. so what does that mean? that means heavy rain. any time a tropical system slows down, you can expect that. now here is a forecast of what the radar is going to look like. and you'll see what i'm talking about. watch that swirl as it gets closer to shanghai. and then notice by late monday and on into tuesday, and then it kind of sits there for a while. that's going to mean a lot of rain. we could be seeing anywhere from 6 to 10 inches. could be some places that see a foot of rain. in addition, we're looking at the winds. these could pick up and perhaps move the water in hangzhou bay inland, and that could cause a storm surge concern. we'll be watching for that.
meanwhile we have what was a tropical storm which dropped a lot of rain. this is a depression, but there will still be at love rain in this area for at least the next couple days. >> thanks for all of the updates there. gene norman, appreciate it. the mexico can government is holding a very, very special lottery. houses of some of the country's most notorious citizens are now up for grabs. we have the details on this. that's next. new neutrogena® rapid firming. a triple-lift serum with pure collagen. 92% saw visibly firmer skin in just 4 weeks. neutrogena® for people with skin.

welcome back. i'm robyn curnow life in atlanta. the mexican government is holding a special raffle, but it's not money people win. it's the houses and property that once belonged to some of the country's most notorious citizens. here is rafael romo with more on that. rafael? >> reporter: it was announced with great fanfare by the president himself featuring the beloved and national lottery voice. it was the beginning of what the mexican government calls great special lottery 248. a raffle of raffles that
features not cash prizes, but luxury real estate property and prime land across mexico. the national lottery director says this is the first time they will raffle houses, condominiums, and land. there is a total of 22 different properties in some of mexico's favorite hideaways, including the acapulco beach resort, colonial land neighborhoods. what the president and lottery director didn't mention is some of these properties used to belong to some of mexico's most notorious citizens, including amado fuentes, who at one time was the leader of the infamous juarez cartel that controlled the vast region south of the texas border. he used to own the raffle's grand prize, this $3.7 million luxury home in mexico city featuring four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a pool, multiple terraces and a lush garden.
this house in culiacan used to belong to the sinaloa cartel leader who is serving a life sentence plus a 30-year sentence after being convicted in the united states. president andres manuel lopez obrador says this is about generating revenue to fund education, health and infrastructure programs for mexico's poor. this is not the first time the president organizes a headline-grabbing raffle. last year, lopez obrador decided to raffle the $218 million presidential airplane, whose luxury he had decried as a candidate. but what would the average citizen do with that kind of aircraft, considering the government tried to sell it before raffling it and failed to do so? the raffle turned into a fiasco when ticket sales were slow, and the president was forced to forget about getting rid of the airport, turning the raffle into multiple cash prizes instead. the president promoted again the
raffle this week, hoping for better luck and faster ticket sales. winners will be announced on september 15, just in time to celebrate mexican independence the following day when a few lucky mexicans may be able to party in their newly acquired narco mansions. rafael romo, cnn, mexico city. >> thanks to rafael for that story. now pope francis has landed in hungary just over an hour ago, making his first international trip in months. he'll stay in budapest for several hours before going to slovakia for four days. his short stay in hungary is seen in some catholic circles as a slap in the face of prime minister victor obsean. pope francis has been calling on some countries to open their doors to immigrants. he'll hold a large mass in budapest. i'm robyn curnow. thank you so much for joining me
