8:31 pm
lawsuits. although the new law doesn't mention sexual orientation, many believe it could be used to discriminate against people, particularly the lgbtq community. >> indiana "this bill is not about discrimination. and if i thought it legalized discrimination in any way i would have vetoed it." >> "i'm just really at loss for words for what this is doing to our state and to our country." >> just because we are recognizing religious rights of everyone in indiana of every faith we have had an avalanche of criticism " >> alecia: there have been protests against the new law. businesses across indiana showing dissatisfaction, by participating in the "open for service" campaign, letting clientele know they won't be subject to discrimination. angie's list canceled plans for

8:33 pm
now, this is key, of course, because the moment that the captain went to the bathroom was when he was locked out by the co-pilot and that plane then crashed into the mountainside. it appears as though the co- pilot at several times along the early stages of the flight keeps reminding the captain "didn't you want to go to the bathroom? you can go now anytime." and then, at some point, the captain does indeed leave the cockpit. now, what happens after that, frank, is absolutely chilling. according to his transcript-- of course, we can't independently verify, but which was published in this newspaper early this morning-- at 10:29 local time, air traffic radar detects that the plane is beginning to descend. three minutes later, air traffic control tries to make contact with this plane, but gets no response by the man who's in the cockpit. shortly after that, a loud bang is heard on the door. the captain can be heard saying, "for god's sake, open the door!" it's the first time the passengers can be heard screaming. at 10:35, a loud metallic bang can be heard on the door. at this point, the plane is at seven-thousand meters.
8:34 pm
90 seconds later, another alarm goes off saying, "train, pull up." at this point, the plane's at five-thousand meters. the captain can, once again, be heard screaming, "open the door!" at 10:38, the plane is descending very close to the french alps. the co-pilot can be heard breathing normally. the plane's at four-thousand meters at this point. it's already very close to the terrain because, remember, we're in mountainous area. at 10:40, the plane's right wing scrapes the mountain top and then the investigators say that screams can be heard for one more time and then the recording breaks off. so absolutely chilling details we're getting there. >> grant: a spokeswoman for b-e- a-- the french aviation accident investigation bureau-- says the agency is "dismayed" by leaks of the voice-recordings. she tells c-n-n the b-e-a considers this mere "voyeurism." she adds that she doesn't believe the leak came from a b- e-a agent. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is expressing new

8:36 pm
though grant >> grant: netanyahu says that iran is looking for shipping and oil access to other that it can ultimately take over the middle east. "i expressed before them our deepest worry about the agreement that's coming together with iran in the nuclear talks. this agreement as it evolves, is fulfilling our deepest fears and even worse. in parallel to the gathering for this dangerous agreement the proxies of iran and the middle east are carrying out a wide occupation of yemen in an attempt to take control of the bab-el-mandeb straits, the strategic straits that change the balance of shipping and supply of oil in the world. after the beruit damascus, baghdad access, the iranians are carrying out a pincher movement in the south to take over the whole middle east." thousands of christians gathered in vatican city to join in the palm sunday mass led by pope francis. the pontiff began with a procession through saint peter's square to usher in holy week-- the week before easter. for christians, palm sunday commemorates jesus' procession into jerusalem--cheered on by crowds waving palm branches-- days before his death and resurrection.
