>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm michael holmes at cnn's world headquarters in atlanta. appreciate your company. coming up, the u.n. and red cross are hoping to get more civilians out of the besieged ukrainian city of mariupol in the day ahead. but reports of fierce bloody combat are making things difficult. the donetsk military claiming
about 200 civilians remain traps inside the sprawling azovstaal plant. ukraine's president says authorities are doing everything they can to get people out. >> translator: russian shelling and assault on as-zovstal does t stop. but civilians need to be taken out. women, children. many children who are still there. just imagine this hell and there are children. more than two months of constant shelling. bombing. and constant death nearby. >> mr. zelenskyy said evacuations from the southern part city are ongoing, but he didn't say how many people left mariupol on thursday. the red cross says more than 300 people are believed to be from mariupol and other nearby areas
arrived in zaporizhzhia on wednesday. a ukrainian commander says wounded soldiers inside the azovstal steelworks are dying in terrible agony but those who are able are fighting to defend the plant. more now from cnn's isa soares. ♪ >> reporter: ukrainian soldiers trapped in the azovstal plant sing the army's battle hymn. ♪ "it is sweeter for us to die in battle than to live in chains as dumb slaves," they sing in the darkness. ♪ a few of the dozens of ukrainian fighters defending the last patch of mariupol not in russian hands. above them the bombardment continues relentlessly. later, one of the commanders with a message for the world. "it's been the third day that the enemy that's broken through the territory of azovstal.
fierce bloody combat is ongoing," he says. accusing the russians of violating the promise of a truce and preventing the evacuation of civilians who continue to hide deep in bunkers at azovstal. the u.n. is and red cross organized the evacuation of one group of about 100 civilians over the weekend. since then none has left. now there is hope of another convoy reaching mariupol. >> as we speak, a convoy is proceeding to get to azovstal by tomorrow morning. hopefully to receive those civilians remaining in that bleak hell that they have inhabited for so many weeks and months. and take them back to safety. >> reporter: speaking to me earlier, the military governor of donetsk was much more cautious. >> translator: would like to be frank that with all due respect for the u.n. and their assistance and the international committee of the red cross the
conditions that -- are such that the occupier keeps changing them. >> reporter: the russians and their allies the separatists of the self-styled donetsk people's republic are showing off their newly won territory, or at least the ruins they fought to seize. this commander points to i amassive crater just outside the azovstal plant. he says the bodies of ukrainian soldiers are everywhere. "we find more and more of them," he adds. amid the ruins of mariupol, once a thriving city of 400,000 people, the new authorities are changing the road signs into russian. ukrainian officials expect they will organize a parade on may 9th, when russia celebrates its victory in the second world war. whether the azovstal complex is quiet and empty by then or still being pulverized no one knows. what's certain are the scars that will remain. isa soares, cnn, lviv, ukraine.
>> now, sources tell cnn ukraine had some help from the u.s. in targeting russia's flagship destroyer, "moskva," last month. the warship sank, you might remember, on april 14th after ukrainian missile strikes. the sources say the ukrainians spotted the ship and then asked the americans for confirmation it was indeed the "moskva." the u.s. then provided intelligence about the ship and its location but was not involved in ukraine's decision to launch those missiles. the kremlin admits it's well aware that the u.s., uk and nato are sharing intelligence with ukraine, but the pentagon press secretary says there are limits. >> we do p provide intelligence on the location of senior military leaders on the battlefield or participate in the targeting decisions of the ukrainian military. we do provide them useful intelligence, timely intelligence that allows them to make decisions to better defend
themselves against this invasion. and i think the less said about that, honestly, the better. >> let's bring in sam rogovin. he's the director of the international security program at the lowry institute, an independent think tank based in australia. thanks so much for being with us. a lot of speculation about may 9, victory day in russia, and the importance of that date and what putin might do or announce. what are your concerns with putin's next moves with that date coming up? >> well, yes, there's speculation that the military push in the east of ukraine is designed with a 9 may deadline in mind and that at that point, on that symbolic date where russia marks its victory over nazi germany that russia may declare that its objectives have been met and seek to stop its offensive military operations.
>> sorry. a little bit of a lag there. so i don't mean to interrupt. we've been seeing an increase lately in the amounts of heavy weaponry and ammunition coming into ukraine. i'm curious if you think convoys or vehicles or trains bringing those weapons in from neighboring countries are likely to be targeted or targeted more heavily, and what could the west even do about that? >> well, the west wouldn't want to itself protect those convoys once they've crossed the border into ukraine. so nato has been very clear and the u.s. president has been very clear that it does not want to go into direct combat with russian forces. so it's notable that russia hasn't seemingly target ed thos areas where weapons are coming
in yet. that could be partly a choice in order not to directly escalate the war. or it could be simply, and i think this is equally plausible, that russia just doesn't have the capability and the intelligence to know when those shipments are coming across the border and where and when to hit them. nevertheless, the fact that we are now seeing western powers, nato promising much heavier weapons, tanks and long-range artillery in particular, is signi significant. and i think it can change the political situation here because i think it actually incentivizes the ukrainians, who clearly feel the wind is at their backs to some degree, to continue the war and to not settle for any kind of settlement that perhaps president putin might propose on 9 may or even thereafter. >> i know you were tweeting
about this and i think it's an important aspect about this war. the impact of the russian control of all those ports in the sea of azov and the black sea, even as russian advances stall or push back in some areas, what harm is being done to ukraine both in military but also economic senses with the loss of those ports? >> yeah, i think that's most importantly an economic weapon rather than a directly military weapon. and from my understanding of the situation it's very difficult for ukraine to substitute via land corridors for simply the sheer bulk of material that they can trade by sea. so the fact that that is being cut off means that the economic impact of the war in ukraine is severe. much more severe at the moment. by the looks of it. than the sanctions regime is on
russia. >> of course many believe that putin's aims go much further than ukraine, that he wants to reconstitute a greater russia, that in many ways he's living in history, not in the present. how then does that make fighting him more difficult when his aims aren't necessarily rational in a traditional war footing sense but ideological? >> yeah, look, i think we have to accept that as a serious possibility. but what's lacking is really the means. so when you consider the sheer amount of military power that russia has applied to the ukraine war and it's fallen disastrously short, probably by some estimates up to 75% of the russian army's total combat power has been devoted to this war. of course they haven't mobilized fully and there's some speculation that that may yet happen. but still, a tremendous amount of russian military power's been applied to this problem.
russia's failed disastrously. so in pure capability terms how would russia threaten now other parts? >> sam roggeveen in canberra. thanks so much. >> thanks, michael. turning our attention to israel where a large manhunt is under way following a suspected attack that left three people dead. police say it happened in the city of elat on thursday when two suspects attacked people on the street. officials looking for a vehicle that was later seen fleeing the area. and as hadas gold reports, all of this happened on a major holiday for the country. >> reporter: on the day israel celebrated its independence day this quiet, mostly religious town in central israel was rocked by an attack. police say that on the street just behind me two alleged suspects began attacking people. police say that they suspect that there was a rifle and
potentially a knife or an ax used. three people were killed. four people were injured. and then the suspects fled in a vehicle, police say. massive manhunt is under way. police helicopters have been buzzing in the skies all evening long. police set up road blocks along the highways and roads around this town checking every single vehicle coming in or out. now, no militant group or terrorist group has taken credit for this attack, although hamas, the militant group that runs gaza, immediately put out a statement praising the attack. the president of the palestinian authority mahmoud abbas put out his own statement condemning the attack, warning about the cycle of violence between palestinians and israelis. this attack is the sixth attack targeting israelis in the past few months, bringing the death toll to 18 people killed in these attacks. as a result of those attacks the israeli military had increased its raids in the west bank, and the clashes and raids had led to more than two dozen palestinians being killed. in addition, there have been
clashes at the al aqsa compound, also known as the temple mount, in jerusalem, a site so holy to both muslims and jews. and although people thought or hoped that as the end of ramadan came that it would bring some calm to the situation, israeli officials did tell me that they did expect further tension, potentially further violence because of days like israeli independence day and next week, which will mark the one-year anniversary of that 11-day war between hamas militants in gaza and the israeli army. hadas gold, cnn, elad, israel. now, some troubling news from the world health organization. the agency says the global covid-19 death toll is three times higher than reported. according to new estimates, nearly 15 million people around the world died either directly or indirectly as a result of the virus between the beginning of 2020 and the end of 2021.
>> it is both a shock as well as expected. shock because this is truly a tragic and a staggering number. almost 15 million excess deaths. direct and/or indirectly associated with covid-19 pandemic just over a period of 24 months. >> the new data is particularly concerning for india. the w.h.o. estimates the country's true covid death toll is ten times higher than government figures. on thursday india's government raised multiple objections over the validity of the mathematical models used by the agency. now, wall street did a complete u-turn on thursday and saw its worst day of the year. the dow dropping more than 1,000 points while the ideas and the s&p 500 also suffered major
losses. the market scored major gains the day before, when the dow and the s&p had their best day in two years. it's a real roller coaster obviously and comes after the u.s. federal reserve raised its benchmark rate on wednesday in a bid to control inflation but said it's not considering future hikes larger than 50 basis points. we're also keeping an eye on the reaction in asia, where trading is under way. right now you can see the nikkei the only one in positive territory, nearly a percentage point up. the shanghai composite down over 2%. the hong kong hang seng down 3.5%. we'll keep an eye on those for you. well, chants of "keep your laws off our bodies" have been echoing throughout the u.s. after word the supreme court is likely on the verge of ending abortion rights. why this is happening now, and what kind of recourse remains. we'll be right back.

welcome back. the fury over the u.s. supreme court's likely plans to end federal abortion rights is not dying down. new rallies were held around the country on thursday days after the leak of a draft opinion indicating the court intends to strike down roe versus wade. the landmark case legalizing abortion nationwide. authorities concerned about the growing anger had tall metal fences put up around the perimeter of the court on wednesday and concrete barriers were added just a few hours ago. during an interview with cbs hill r. clinton warning that the supreme court's far right majority could go far beyond targeting abortion rights. >> this opinion is dark. it is incredibly dangerous. and it is not just about a
woman's right to choose. it is about much more than that. and any american who says look, i'm not a woman, this doesn't affect me, i'm not black, that doesn't affect me, i'm not gay, that doesn't affect me, once you allow this kind of extreme power to take hold you have no idea who they will come for next. >> cnn's senior political analyst ron brownstein is a senior editor at the "the atlantic." he joins me now from los angeles. good to see you, ron. you write a great piece in "the atlantic." you say, "the urgency and ambition of the republican drive to lock into law the cultural priorities of its prepond ratly white, christian and older electoral coalition at a moment of rapid demographic change." that's a very important point. what could be the impacts of that? >> well, look, we are seeing the
breadth of this offensive really come into light. and essentially it's been a three-part process. the republican majority on the supreme court creates an opening by rulings that roll back or rescind a previously guaranteed national right such as protections of voting rights, for example. red states where republicans control the governor and the legislature, there are 23 of our 50 states are in complete control by republicans, they rush through that opening to pass new laws that are restricting abortion rights, restricting voting rights, restricting lgbtq rights, banning books, censoring how teachers can talk about race or gender or sexual orientation in the classroom. and then kind of the third piece of the axis is that when house democrats have moved to try to undo some of what is happening in the red states by passing legislation codifying national rights on voting, on abortion, on lgbtq rights, in each case those ideas have been blocked in the senate by republican-led
filibuster. so you have this kind of pincer movement that is operating together with the potential to unravel and roll back a wide array of rights, as hillary clinton was alluding to, that americans have pretty much taken for granted since the 1960s. >> now, you mentioned the filibuster. with joe biden saying he's unsure about ditching the filibuster to try to codify roe, what other strategies could the democrats possibly use to ensure that laws protecting roe get passed? >> yeah. well, they really don't have the capacity to win these arguments in red states. those are republican-leaning states to begin with. most of them have seen their state legislatures gerry manders to an extreme extent, partly because of supreme court rulings that have aallowed it. it's going to be all or nothing for democrats in these states in gubernatorial elections this fall. florida, georgia, texas,
arizona, iowa, many of the states that have severe abortion restrictions on the books ready to go into a place if the supreme court overturns roe, will have gubernatorial elections. but you know, it's a difficult environment for democrats. inflation is at the highest level in 40 years. it's not clear that this alone is going to turn the tide. i suspect that from the point of view of the biden administration a lot of the focus, michael, going forward is going to be on medication abortion and ensuring that people in every state can have access to the pills that can be used to induce abortion. the fda has now allowed this to be dispensed without a doctor's visit through telehealth and mail. the red states are trying to restrict that. and i suspect this is another area we're going to see back in the courts in a dispute between federal authority and state authority as these red states look to try to tighten kind of the noose on abortion
restrictions. >> you touched on this in your piece as well. let's follow up. this following. the polling says there is not a single state in the u.s., red or blue, that has a majority in favor of overturning roe v. wade. you've got overwhelming numbers of young people favoring abortion rights. one in four american women will have had an abortion by their 40s. how then should democrats best leverage public opinion to this overruling likelihood? how likely is there to be political ballot box consequences for republicans? >> there will be a backlash. i think it is unequivocal. look, the public has supported roe v. wade remaining the law of the land in polling for 50 years. basically since the decision has come down. in the latest cnn poll earlier this year 69% of americans said they don't want roe to be overturned. 64% in another poll out this week say they want abortion to be legal in most or at least
some circumstances. and by the way, that is the number in all 50 states. there's not a majority in any state that wants abortion to be illegal in most or all circumstances. so there is a constituency there. and i do think it will help democrats address the turnout gap that they are facing in the midterm. particularly of concern for them has been young people. young people turn out less in midterms to begin with and they are pretty disillusioned with joe biden. his approval rating is only about 40% among them, 20 points lower than his vote in 2020. but 3/4 of yumg adults in that cnn poll said they do not want to see roe overturned. so this could make a material difference. whether that is enough to overcome the usual advantage of the party out of the white house in turnout in that midterm, pretty much every mid nem term election since the civil war the party out of the white house has had a midterm advantage. this does not erase that by
itself but i would be shocked if it doesn't have some impact when you look at the magnitude and consistency of the polling and also the extent to which this is simply shocking, many younger people could really not have imagined this day coming. they've lived in a world where abortion has always been legal, and i think particularly for young women this is going to be i think a rather remarkable moment. >> and it's interesting to see some republicans seemingly running from wanting to have a real conversation about the impacts of it even though it's something they've wanted theoretically to do for literally decades. ron, good to see you, my friend. we're out of time. appreciate it. ron brownstein, thanks. >> thanks for having me. a powerful missile strike in eastern ukraine ripped through a residential area of kramatorsk. the strategic city seen as a key objective in russia's attempt to capture the donbas. we'll have a report from the scene just ahead.

more than two dozen people were reported wounded on thursday by russian shelling and air strikes in the key city of kramatorsk in eastern ukraine. early thursday entire blocks of apartment buildings were left in tatters as a missile slammed into a residential neighborhood. the city is seen as pivotal in russia's quest to seize control of ukraine's donbas region. more now from cnn's sam kiley in kramatorsk. >> the scale of the blast is extraordinary and so is quite frankly the effort to clean up. it's just a few hours ago that these impacts were felt ripping through these residential buildings. i've been on the other side of these buildings. they look the same on this side next to the blast as they do on the other side. the blast simply rushed clean
through these buildings, tearing them to pieces. merc mercifully, there were 25 people have been wounded across the city in three different locations. there was also a blast close to the administrative headquarters. there's only been six people hospitalized and one person is critical. that's in stark contrast to the last time kramatorsk was hit in earnest about a month ago when the railway station was struck by a surface to surface missile, a long-range missile probably similar to the one that landed here. that killed at least 50 people waiting to try to evacuate from this city. the consequence, though, of the evacuations, the toll in terms of wounded and dead from these frankly atrocities, this is a deliberate targeting with not dumb bombs. this was not an attack that came from an aircraft. this is clearly a surface to surface missile. and the range would indicate that they're guided missiles, not the stupid missiles, if you like, of multiple rocket launching system but much more
likely the guided missiles that are available to the russians such ass is kandar. this is a deliberate act against kram kramatorsk, which is really the strategic prize for the russians, if they can capture this town. as far as the putin administration is concerned, it may be a possibility that they could then believe that they've achieved some kind of a victory and maybe stop their advance at this point. but they are at least 25 kilometers away to the north. they're pushing down, also trying to come in from the east. they've had moderate success and some losses around kharkiv. but this is the ongoing part of their campaign. pound the civilian areas into submission and then try to occupy the ashes. >> sam kiley reporting there. now, the mystery around the disappearance of the british toddler madeleine mccann may finally be close to being solved. german prosecutors say they know what happened to her and that

over 15 years since the disappearance of the british toddler madeleine mccann prosecutors now say they've found new evidence and that they are sure they found her killer. cnn's nada bashir has more. >> reporter: while the disappearance of madeleine mccann back in may 2007 continues to be one of the most high-profile cases of a missing child and now 15 years on since she was abducted during a family vacation in the algarve in portugal and new evidence has come to light centered around a german suspect, christian brookner. now, the german prosecutor investigating this case spoke to a portuguese broadcaster on tuesday and said that new evidence has come to light linking brookner to madeleine's case. and he also said in his words that he is sure that brookner killed madeleine mccann. while this new evidence will be crucial to the investigation, the german prosecutor was
careful to clarify this did not include forensic evidence. >> it is true that if you find something belonging to madeleine in the caravan of christian brookner. >> to the details of the investigations i cannot give you a -- >> but you can't deny it, can you? >> i don't want to deny it. >> reporter: now, this could mark one of the most significant leads in the investigation into madeleine's disappearance. the investigation itself is still ongoing. christian brookner's currently serving jail time in germany and he is a convicted sex offender. but he has previously denied any involvement in madeleine's abduction. he says he was with his then girlfriend on the night that madeleine disappeared. but in his interview on tuesday the german prosecutor said that christian brookner has no alibi. so this could certainly be a significant development indeed. but of course progress in the investigation comes as madeleine's family marks the
15th anniversary of her disappearance, may 3rd, 2007. her parents, kate and jerry mccann saying in a statement that "while this year is no harder than previous years it's also no easier." they say they remain hopeful that madeleine will be found alive and reunited with her family. but of course the developments in this investigation will be met with mixed emotions. the german prosecutor's office has said previously that they do not believe madeleine mccann is still alive. so certainly a difficult moment once again for her family. nada bashir, cnn, london. >> i'm michael holmes at the cnn center in atlanta.
