hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around world. i'm michael holmes. appreciate your company. ukrainian officials are working with the u.n. and red cross to get more civilians out of the devastated city of mariupol in the coming hours. they are having to contend with what ukraine's president calls non-stop shelling. the fighting is fierce and it is
bloody. the military governor claiming about 200 se0 civilians remain trapped. the complex, authorities are doing everything they can to get people to safety. >> russian shelling and assault does not stop. civilians still 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. >> he didn't say how many people left on thursday. only that evacuations are ongoing. the red cross says more than 300 people believe to be from mariupol and other nearby areas
arrived on wednesday. wounded soldiers are dying in agony. >> reporter: this is the last bastion of ukrainian resistance. the steel plant under what a city official calls nonstop shelling and assault by russian forces. the commander saying fierce combat is ongoing. he says russian forces breached the compounds barrier. the commander begging for transport of the bodies of soldiers who died. pleads for more evacuations of civilians still trapped inside. the united nations says it's
hard to know how many remain but they are trying to send help. >> the convoy is proceeding to get to other stop. hopefully to receive those civilian s remaining in that bleak hell they have inhabited for so many weeks and months. >> reporter: on thursday, putin promised safe passage for civilians out of mariupol and the kremlin deniyied an asaul. ukrainian troops say the plant is a final hold out for last offenders as the enemy closes in .
inside the steel plant, ukrainian forces singing a battle hymn. it's sweeter to die in battle than to live in chains as slaves, they chant. prepared to fight until the bitter end. >> cnn spoke with the military governor and asked him about ukrainian troops efforts to keep the russians at bay. >> their holding their positions because not only while in the shelters but also in the ground. there are serious defensive structure and the enemy is doing everything they can but they have not yet succeeded in
breaking the resistance of our courageous defenders. >> we have seen the shelling of the russian forces on the steel com complex. the you give us a sense how much people are still inside the complex, from what you're understanding? how many civilians still inside. >> as a rule, when i answer questions like this, i say we usually count women, children and the elder ly whom we are evacuating. i confirm throughout this difficult operation we have evacuated 101 person and according to our estimates, our information, around 200 people
kharkiv region. the main strike was in a town so the enemy can move in the most simple way. it was our bravery and the professionalism of our forces that stopped the enemy force and equipment and the lemon direction is where serious fighting is taking place. today there was an attempt to breakthrough by the enemy in two towns in the area. the enemy tried to storm. however, it suffered destructive losses and suffered a blow and was forced to move back to the
posi positions it took after the failed offensive two weeks ago. >> lot of attention being focused on and given to may 9th, of course. it's victory day for russia. the fear is there president putin may take mariupol as a trophy. what do you have to say to that if that does endeed happen? >> mariupol was, is and always will be -- mariupol doesn't exist anymore. it's another confirmation of the fact how professional ukrainian and mariupol defenders are.
therefore, anything that anything the enemy in its anger could take to ruin mariupol. the enemy is not capable of restoring it. i will say with full responsibility as an official related to the rebuilding effort in mariupol. i will say that rebuilding mariupol and making it more developed can only be done by the ukrainian sate. any measures taken in the completed ruins territory. it will confirm the absence of
any humanity on the part of the inva invaders and will be proof of the highest cynicism on their part and will confirm yet again what the world should understand is how necessary it is to help you crane, to save the whole civilized world from the russian aggressor. not just to over come it but to make sure that for generations it doesn't even begin to think of attacking ukraine or threatening jurp and the the whole world. now sources telling cnn ukraine had some help from the u.s. in targeting russia's flagship destroyer last movant.
the warship sank on april 14th after ukrainian missile strikes. sources say the yukrainians spos the ship and asked the u.s. for confirmation. the u.s. was not involved in ukraine's decision to launch missiles. >> we do not 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, that allows them to make decisions to better defend themselves against this invasion. i think the less said about that, the better. >> the white house says the u.s. supplies battlefield
intelligence to help ukraine defend itself but it does not provide intelligence with the intent to kill russian generals. towns and villages across ukraine have been brutally ravaged by this war. so many people left behind, separate he searching for answers onds hoping their missing loved ones will return. sara sidner with that. >> reporter: ef single day, she waits for the moment her husband and son return home. >> reporter: on march 11th, i call them. he said hold on, wait a minute. that's all. >> what do you think happened to your husband and son in. >> i don't know. i have no idea. my husband and fly woesht hurt fly. they are very kind. >> reporter: maybes told her her husband and son had been taken
by russian soldiers. >> i want them to return my husband and son or tell me where they are now. where did they hide my boys. i can't find my place in life how am i supposed to live now? tell me, how? she's not the ochl one suffering through this. across the street and around the corner, other families are longing for day their husband and fathers return. >> they forcibly took their father away. >> papa. >> leaving them with just pictures. they took him and we don't know
where he is. they, the russians, will be punished. they are relieved this village is no longer crawling with russian tanks. it means there's no one else to ask where the men were taken. in the rubble of war, gregory has been searching for his brother. he says he was also picked up by russian soldiers pch . we know he was beaten with a club. he said it was their job to beat them every day. my hand was died where this rope. another two guys were handcuffed. one of the men didn't make it out alive, he says. >> reporter: in the morning, he said his body was already cold. e reported it to police and it was determined the man killed was leo's brother. no body has ever been found.
they took the body away. who knows where. we still don't know wh he is. after hearing this, how do you survive this in how do you live with this in? >> it's very hard. very hard. he got permission to go on his bombed out property. we went down a set of steep stairs. at the bottom he stayed seconds. the memory of his brother's last moment too much for him to bear. sara sidner, cnn. >> two stops on the run after the latest deadly attack in israel. security forces amassing.

massive man hunt is under way in israel after a suspected terror attack left three people dead and four others wounded. police say two suspects attacked people on the street in the central city on thursday. israeli officials say the attackers used a rifle as well as a knife or perhaps an axe before running away. it happened on israel's independence day. the incident following a string of deadly attacks in israel and the west bank in recent weeks as well as increased clashes at the mosque. israeli prime minister reacted in a statement saying quote, you are enemies have embarked on murdererous campaign against je.
palestinian authority president also condemning the attack. wall street did a complete u turn on thursday and saw its worse day of the year. the dow dropping more than a thousands points while the nasdaq and s&p 500 suffered major losses. the markets scored major gains the day before when the dow and s&p had their best day in two years. it's a roller coaster that comes after the u.s. federal reserve r raised its rate on wednesday but said it's not considering future hikes larger than 50 basis points. we are keeping an eye on the reaction in asia. trading is under way there. as you can see the nikkei the
only one with a green arrow. all the rest are red. 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 direct he or indirectly as a result of the virus between the beginning of 2020 and the end of 2021. now this new data concerning for ipd india. the w.h.o. estimating the true death toll is ten times higher than government figures in that country. all of this coming as cases
are rising in the chinese capital, beijing. delivering a strongly worded speech doubling down on china ease zero covid policy on thursday. for more i'm joined by cnn will ripley in taiwan for us. president xi firmly standing by a policy criticized by many of his own citizens for how it's been handled. >> right. that's because you have 30 chinese cities in full or partial lockdown. this is affecting almost 200 million people. chinese economy shrunk last month because of the economic toll. not to mention the mental health toll for people trapped inside their homes. they can't leave. can't go outside to get fresh air. some people struggling to get the basic necessities like enough food or medical supplies or even non-covid related emergency health care. people have been denied access. it's big mess especially in shanghai where 1.25 million people, the city's entire population were locked down. that number now down to about
more than 8 million shanghai residents still banned from leaving their residential compounds in areas where there haven't been new cases detected. people have some semblance of mobility they can move around their districts. despite the criticism, the outrage, despite chinese people sharing on social media their frustration, their anger, desperation, not only is he not even really talking about the economic impact in the layest remarks publicized, he's doubling down fiercely on this policy that has been imposed on the people of china, one and a half billion people by the communist rulers in beijing. basically saying if china doesn't advance in this fight against covid, the zero covid policy that they will fall back. the rational for that they have a very large elderly population in china who are unvaccinated. it will take until the end of the year to get the older people vaccinated.
people who could be at high risk if this omicon variant were to spread more widely across china which has such a large population. the staggering death toll would be a whole lot higher from the view of the chinese government if they departments have the zero covid policies such as what they did in huwan in the early days of be pandemic where for several months people were locked down and they eradicated the virus in that city, albeit temporarily because there's been out breaks across china. i want to read to you what is striking from the comments. basically that people who talk back, people who dare to publicly challenge this could face some very serious punishment inside china. he is calling on all level of government to resolutely adhere to the zero covid policy and resolutely fight with any word and acts distorting, doubting and denying china's covid control policy. not only are chinese leaders
doubling down on this, they are stepping up their enforcement of the censorship that will deny people the opportunity to criticize what is beingi impose on them. >> thank you. : chinese officials have ended the search for survivors from building collapse. 53 people died from the collapse. rescue workers were able to pull ten people from the rubble. one person reportedly in critical condition. the other nine stable. no word yet on a possible cause of the collapse.

the fury over the u.s. supreme court likely ban to end abortion rights is not dying down. new rallies were held around the country on thursdays after the leak of a draft within indicating the court intends the strike down roe v wade, the landmark case legalizing abortion nationwide. authorities are warning about potential violence. they had tall metal fences put up around the perimeter of the
court on wednesday. concrete barriers added a few hours ago. hillary clinton warned that the supreme court far right majority could go far beyond targeting abortion rights. >> this opinion is dark. it's incredibly dangerous and it is not just about a woman's right to choose. it's about much more than that. any american who says i'm not a woman, this doesn't affect me. i'm not black, that doesn't affect me. i'm in the 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. >> analysts say the next frontier in the abortion battle might be the growing use of pills by mail that can end unwanted pregnancies. supplieiers say they intend to keep sending them to the u.s. no matter what state laws say.

tremendous amount of progress. >> reporter: so this time around you feel confident that children will not be in border patrol custody for more than the 72 hours. >> we do absolutely everything in our capacity to make sure that happens. >> reporter: ortiz said some of the haitians were in del rio last year. part of 15,000 who were under a bridge, got deported to haiti and are now back. this time in revalaredo. the mayor, a democrat, wants title 42 to remain in place. he fears lifting it could increase human smuggling and violence in his city. he says house that's stash migrants and drugs are runly local gangs. do you have a message for the biden administration? >> maybe have a man b in the event plan a doesn't work? >> is there a plan b? >> whether you call it a, b, c or d, it is comprehensive, ready to deal with the challenges coming our way.
