7:00 pm
ar. >> this is al jazeera america, live from new york city. i'm erica pitzi. tony harris is on assignment. the ohio police officer charged with the murder of an unarmed black man says he is not guilty. questions ahead, about campus security. a chunk of wing on a remote island, raises the question of whether the mh370 flight could finally be sold. the oldest baseball card finally
7:01 pm
sold, hidden away in a box of candy. ththe former university of cincinnati police officer accused of murdering an unarmed man, is pleadings not guilty to the crime. ray tensing was arraigned abisi onile-ere are here. there are reports that other police officers are under investigation in this case? >> yeah, that's right, erica. nice to hear from you. we are hearing that at least two officers have been put on paid administrative leave. apparently they receive testifie the grand jury and said they did
7:02 pm
not see anything on the day the incident occurred. however the body camera told a completely different story. on the video one of the officers could be heard telling a cincinnati police officer that he saw ray tensing get dragged. both of those officers are on administrative leave as the police department investigates these allegations. i had a chance to speak with the mayor much cincinnati and he told me really questions whether tensing had the authority to stop dubose in the first place. take a listen. >> my understanding they have the right to start a pursuit on campus, if it started on campus, it did not start on campus and end on campus. i'm sure there will be difference of opinion but my understanding it was not consistent with our current agreement. >> reporter: and we learned late this afternoon that those two officers that have been
7:03 pm
suspended that they were involved in some situation where they may have lied involving the death of an unarmed mentally ill black man a couple of years ago, apparently because that case was settled those officers were never fired, erica. >> and bisi we are hearing that tensing is out on bond, is that right? >> reporter: yes, i just received word of that a short while ago i can tell you today in court he was officially charged, he walked in there wearing a jail uniform, his lands handcuffed behind his back. he pled not guilty. there was a time when the courtroom broke into applause when they heard the judge made the bail $1 million and we're hearing he's out. >> the shocking body cam video of the incident, the dubose family is calling for calm here in the city.
7:04 pm
how is that being received? >> reporter: it's received well in cincinnati. in 2001 this were race riots when an unarmed black man was killed buy police officer. the black community and the police department have done well mending their differences. they say stay calm, we don't want to see any protests, and the protests there were, were peaceful. erica. >> bisi onile-ere, thank you. let's bring in city council person wendell young, who happens to be aformer police officer for the city as well. good evening to you sir. >> good evening. >> first let's get your reaction to the indictment of officer ray tensing. >> i think it's the proper thing to have occurred. we have all seen the video in cincinnati. i think majority of us realize that there's something and enough evidence there that there
7:05 pm
should definitely be a trial so the grand jury returned a true bill. he's been indicted arraigned and out on $1 million bond. so the prosecutor says the cincinnati police should be patrolling the college campus and not the university police. what's your take on that? >> i'm not sure that's a good idea. first of all i want to commend the prosecutor for the work he's done on this case. i think he's done an initial job of getting this to court as quickly as possible. however i'm afraid that wanting this band the university of cincinnati police department might be sort of like throwing out the baby with the bath water. i don't want to engage in a knee jerk reaction to what's occurred here and so far we've got one officer who allegedly disobeyed the law. but does not necessarily mean the entire department should be disbanded because of the action he of one officer. -- actions of one officer. i prefer the president of the
7:06 pm
university, his approach. what he wants to do is a top to bottom review of the department, try to fix those. i think that's the way to go with this and cincinnati can be very helpful with this process. he also wants to adopt a collaborative agreement that the university of cincinnati adopted after the riots here a decade ago. probably a similar arrangement cosh done for the university of cincinnati. my preference would be to do that, find out what the efficiencdeficiency are. there's an ample place or the cincinnati to take over those duties but i don't think that's what we'll find. >> you're a former police officer. how much does training differ from city cops and campus cops? >> i'm not sure training differs that much. the procedures are different.
7:07 pm
certifying the police officers in the state, all the police officers in ohio have to pass that training. so my belief is that the university of cincinnati police officers have done that. they may in fact have even exceeded some of that training as cincinnati does. cincinnati exceeds that by a large margin. however if they'd only done the minimum they're still certified. what cincinnati police officers do on campus or on the streets are not necessarily the same. the focus is entirely different. you can probably imagine ton campus the concern would be the safety of the students and probably the they engage in the infraction he that are reported to the provost, they would be locked up as opposed to felonies. if the city of cincinnati police officers were doing that function we would be doing arrests regardless. that may not fit with what the university police officer would be doing.
7:08 pm
there may be some deficiency we can clear up. cincinnati enjoys the reputation of a really good police department. i plan to agree with that assessment. university of cincinnati i believe they're very open to our help so the two of us working together can probably cure any deficiencies we find. >> you mentioned the 2001 riots, how does the communities feel at this time? is it possible that this incident could bring back the level of distrust between the police and the community? >> anything is possible. but i'd like to think that cincinnati has learned some very valuable lessons since 2001. and a lot of the people in this city have worked really, really hard to improve the status of police-community relations. we have activists in our city who worked really hard. we have lawyers and just plain citizens who have gotten involved in the faith based community that is heavily invested, heavily involved, and
7:09 pm
all of these people have worked really, really hard to improve that and the end result is, we have a situation in cincinnati and i don't want to say we have utopia here, we don't. but we have a situation in cincinnati where i do believe the majority of our dissention are willing to give police officers the benefit of the doubt and at least are willing to wait for information to come out before they make a decision. >> okay. >> we also have a police chief named jeffrey blackwell who has done a wonderful job of being visible all over the city at any major incident, even playing basketball with little kids. the goodwill he has built up has really spilled over and the work he's doing has been benefited and all these things combined have you us in a place in -- us in a place in cincinnati to be willing to give up to the administration before we believe what they have to say. >> councilmember, wend young,
7:10 pm
thank you so much for joining us from cincinnati. a piece of an aircraft wing that washed up on a french indian ocean island will be taken for investigation and study. investigators want to know if that is part of the missing marion barry airlines mh 370. a piece of a badly damaged suitcase was also found by the wing. tanya page is on the island and i asked her how investigators will be able to find where the debris came from. >> it begins and ends with the information on the wing, the still photos that it is from a 777, the wing part, as you look out of the plane window down the wing, the bit on the back side of it, if you like, that helps with the lift and with the plane slowing down whit comes in to land. they think it's that part. and if it's got a serial number
7:11 pm
on it, they believe that's the fastest way of linking it back to a specific plane. >> if investigators link the plane part to malaysia flight 370, what can they learn about what actually happened to the flight? >> fortunately, realistically really, this is not a part of the plane, not black box flight recorders which would be the golden ticket as far as investigators are concerned, there isn't much it's going to be able to tell them about what exactly what went on in that cabin. what went disastrously wrong to this now we know doomed flight. so but they will be able to tell from it though is really some sort of confirmation of the area that they have been searching. some of the original modeling showed that some parts of the debris may have, by this time, drifted as far as this island. and of course, it will help
7:12 pm
dispel some of the really quite wild conspiracy theories that have swirled around this plane's disappearance which leads to the families getting some kind of closure so many months on. >> tanya page on reunion island for us. let's take a closer look now at the investigative process and bring in science and technology correspondent jacob ward. good evening jake. is it possible to link this part of the plain to m hmpt 370 in other ways? >> erica, it's not possible, there's no serial number, that serial number seems to have come off. typically every part of the plane would have a piece attached to it. there are other ways to make a link. photographs of this particular piece show a component number. it's a number that maintenance
7:13 pm
personnel use to keep track of particularly pieces. in this case it says 657bb. if you look at the aircraft manual, the maintenance manual on a boeing 777 that shows up exofnedding to what's called a flapper-on, a control surface that you see go up and down when you are looking at the wing. that connection there suggests this is a boeing 777. and as far as we know there is only one boeing 777 missing in the world, and that's mh370. scientists definitely point to it being it, because it troalts a piece that is the only particular plane that is missing of its type in the world. >> oif this debris is in fact from mfts 370 how did it wind it so -- mh370 how did it end up so far away? we're talking 3,000 miles away. >> that's an incredible distance. what we're talking about is the
7:14 pm
south equatorial current, the current that runs between australia and asia. the idea is if you imagine it began in the middle of that search area yellow there it would have moved north with the current and then west and then been brought all the way over there. unfortunately however, this does not lead up to any other sense of where the rest of the pieces may be. south equatorial current only runs as deep as 100 meters, a little over 300 feet and that means only buoyant pieces would be carried on. a flamer on is very buoyant, quite part of the wing. unfortunately the piece of the wing you really want to find, the flight data recorder those are built to withstand terrible violence, very, very heavy, very, very dense. they would have been left behind with the current, they don't float and they are somewhere else if they are in the water they are on the bottom of the ocean somewhere.
7:15 pm
unfortunately although this is first trace of this flight we found it does not bring us any closer to really solving the mystery of this plane's disappearance. >> jacob ward, live for us in sasan francisco, thank you. >> the afghan have taliban appointed a new leader after confirming the death of mulla omar. what do we know about him? >> the afghan taliban told al jazeera on thursday that it elected its new leadership, mu mulla ahmed ma plan sowr, the te first claimed by mulla oarm. >> despite the naming of the successor of mulla omar, there's been no explanation of what happened in the congratulatei
7:16 pm
hospital in 2013, only better than disclosed now. as afghan taliban fighters launched new offens offensives e country, the question is whether it's split into reefnlg factions. regional faction he. >> the taliban has spread its groups throughout the country. so very strong and skillful military leadership. >> the command structure has always been opaque but many of its leaders come from canada kar province. the first region where mulla omar first started leading what became the taliban movement. >> when the taliban rose it needed to have a leader, eventually the taliban chose him because he had 30 people and he had some more weapons to use. the second reason: he was a
7:17 pm
famous and worthy person. >> mansour has connection with the intelligence known as isi. >> particularly isi has become an important role and as long as they continue to receive the support of the pakistan's isi they will not face serious challenges immediately. >> while important ties with pakistan and has survived years of war and bloody contact, gone is the almost myth like feeling mulla brought. afghan presidential ashraf ghani, which gained his approval to ongoing peace talks. now those talks have been postponed. the taliban face threats from inside its own leadership from
7:18 pm
other top commanders who could question the appointment of mansour but the taliban also face he another virulent threat. it is believed i.s.i.l. i is looking for opportunity to gain power through the opportunity of the leadership change. >> british prime minister david cameron warns his country will not become a safe haven for those seeking a new life there. barnaby phillips reports from calais, france. >> british workers are in france, hoping this will be enough to keep migrants out and stop them from boarding trucks and trains to guess across the channel. in britain the newspapers are increasingly shrill. something must be done to keep
7:19 pm
the migrants out. the prime minister sensitive to the mood at home used perhaps insensitive language to describe the situation in calais. >> this is very testing, i accept that because you have got a swarm of people coming across the mediterranean, seeking a better life, wanting to come to britain because britain has jobs, it's got a growing economy, it's an incredible place to live. but we've got to protect our borders by working hand in glove with the fren french and that's exactly what we're doing. >> you can see the euro turn reinforced with barbed wire at the top. you can see people forced their way through, it says danger of death, in some african, middle eastern languages, warning them not to go through, more barbed wire and a second fence and reenforcements at the top of
7:20 pm
that second fence. so you have to be realize, really determined to try and get through here and try and board one of those trains like the ones going past right now. shortly afterwards a team trieived repair the hole. and so the game of cat and mouse goes on. the real action happens after dark when the migrants hope it will be easier to get across undetected. although on this occasion, the french police managed to keep them out. outside calais hospital i met a syrian man who wouldn't show his face. he had tried to jump onto a ship to england but slipped and broke both arms. he's been well treated in this french hospital but he's still plotting how to get to england. >> when i am back my health and go outside the hospital, i am try again to get to london.
7:21 pm
this my dream. and i don't stop before that, i am try one, two, three. >> no one who's come this far is heleasily deterred. these include eritreans, sudanese. barnaby phillips, al jazeera, calais. >> looking at live pictures of those greenpeace protestors in portland, okay. the judge ordered greenpeace to pay $2500 for every hour the protesters block the shell oil ice breaker from leaving the arctic, the vessel was forced to turn around. at least two protesters were
7:22 pm
placed in handcuffs by the police and escorted off the bridge. fighting with i.s.i.l. but not with weapons. how three chechen girls did it. and verdicts delayed, stay with us. us.
7:23 pm
7:24 pm
>> an egyptian court has adjourned the retrial of three al jazeera journalists for a ninth time. peter greste, mohamed fahmy and baher mohamed were expecting a verdict today. officials say the court will now meet on august 2nd. in january, an appeals court ordered the retrial saying the initial verdict lacked evidence against the three journalists. the three men were found guilty of aiding the muslim brotherhood in june of 2014. charges that al jazeera strongly denies. peter greste had been in already deported to his native australia but he is still being
7:25 pm
retried in egypt in absentia. he spent 400 days in an egyptian prison and he joins us now live from sydney. good evening to you peter, thank you for being with us. >> it's a pleasure. >> now you've already been through so much. now your retrial is adjourned. how frustrating is this to you? >> look, it's incredibly frustrating for me. frustrating for me, incredibly truss traiting four sammy and baher. this is the moment that defines the rest of our lives. to me it will mean whether or not i'll be able to continue as a foreign correspondent. if i am convicted it means i'll not be able to travel to any country that has an extradition treaty with egypt. for my colleagues, it is an issue of whether they'll have to
7:26 pm
be going back to prison, whether they have to return to their families at the end of the day. to have these delays is incredibly frustrating and very, very difficult for them and their families. >> peter, why do you think the court did this? >> i don't know and we have no official explanation for it at all. there's been a lot of speculation about possible political influence. we've also heard reports that the judge is one of the judges is sick. until we get anything official from the courts i think it's quite dangerous to make any speculation. we just don't know what's going on. >> you know you mentioned both of your colleagues there. have you been in touch at all with them? what is the last communication you had with either of them? >> yeah, i spoke to baher late yesterday. and he was finding it very, very difficult as i said, you know, the stress on him and his family, and obviously the stress on him because his family is stressed, is really playing a very -- is playing havoc with him with their emotions at the
7:27 pm
moment. but he's a strong guy, you know, he's been through a lot already and he knows what he has to deal with and as difficult as it is i'm sure he'll make it through. >> what do you say to him in support? >> i told him that to remember the strategies that we used together, when we were in prison. we spoke a lot about managing each day. we spoke a lot about just dealing with the problems, the short term problems, shortening your -- the trajectory to what was the time line if you like of what was ahead of you, and taking it in small chunks, in manageable chunks. we spoke a lot about the strategies as i said we used to get through prison and i told him, reminded him to keep applying those to his daily life. >> how has your trial affected egyptian qatari relations, do you feel you were pawns in such a geopolitical game?
7:28 pm
>> look, no doubt the relationship between qatar and egyptian played into what has happened to us. it's very difficult to know whether or not that's really been the thing that's driving it. remember: we need to look at the charges that we are facing. the allegation is that have been laid against us. qatar isn't on trial here. the three of us are on trial. we are the ones that have been accused of collaborating with a banned terrorist organization. we are the ones that have been charged with broadcasting false news, not qatar, not al jazeera as a corporation. even though there might be an implied conspiracy or other issues driving this the only thing we can deal with are those very specific charges against the three of us. now whatever those other forces may be at play here we've got no control over those. so we need i think in all of the discussions and the legal arguments we've been make we need to focus very carefully on those very specific charges. and if we look at those, then
7:29 pm
clearly there is nothing at all to convict us. we weren't responsible for any of those, or we didn't do anything along those lines. we weren't doing anything illegal, much less immoral or unethical. so frankly, i think as long as the court considers those, the evidence, and applies those to the allegations then it will be very clear that they can only come to one conclusion and that's acquittals for all. >> talk about how this trial changed you as a journalist. you touched on this just a little earlier here but do you think you can do the job the same way you can before, your cleel sue turtin says she cannot operate the same way. do you agree? >> if i wind up with a conviction it will be very difficult to function. there will be other ways around this, it is very difficult to know what we have to deal with
7:30 pm
until we see the verdict and until we know what the consequences of that verdict might be. but if it's as a restrictive for me as sue feels it is, then clearly it would make it very, very difficult for me to operate as a foreign correspondent in my old capacity. but there's also the other kind of higher issues here of perspective. to have been through what i've been through i feel like i've got a lot deeper understanding of the kind of plight of other people caught up in similar situations. i think that's also inevitably going to affect the way i report on some issues. >> peter greste, live for us from sydney, thank you so much. in full disclosure, al jazeera america is funded in part by the government of qatar. investigating the debris. what investigators can find out about the plain part that washed up.
7:31 pm
and secretary of defense ash carter considers arming personnel. rsonnel.
7:32 pm
7:33 pm
>> a piece of debris at a could be from missing malaysia airlines mh370 will be taken back to france for investigation. washed up on the indian ocean island of reunion, the boeing 777 had 230 on board while flying from kuala lumpur to beijing in late 2014, was found far off the search area. >> it's a very significant development, the first real evidence that there's a possibility that a part of aircraft may have been found. it's too early to make that judgment but clearly, we are treating this as a major lead. and seeking to get assurance about what has been found, and whether it is indeed linked to the disappearance of mh370.
7:34 pm
>> kyle bailey joins me now. he is a pilot and an aviation analyst. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> they're still trying to confirm if this piece of plane is that of the missing malasian airliner. how easy or difficult is that to determine? >> there are part numbers on that particular object so if they are in fact visible which it appears they are, i would assume boeing probably has an answer on that part and when the engineers look at that they'll be able to make a quick determination. >> even if they don't have an exact serial number? >> my feeling is they already know, that's my gut feeling and they want to make sure the i's are dotted and the t is's are'se crossed. >> because there are so many family members waiting. >> yes. >> we are not talking about a piece of the engine or a black box. can it actually help investigators figure out what happened to this plane? >> yes it could, there is sea
7:35 pm
life on that particular part. it can tell them even what part of the ocean it came from based on where that sea life inhabits. the parts attached could tell whether the plane was turning or climbing based on the mechanical hookup on that part if it's attached. >> this part was found 2,000 miles away from where vectors werinvestigators were focusing . could it be part of a debris field or this washed up on its own? >> i think they'll use reverse drift to determine where the area was that the plane went down. on all accounts, this is partly of the area that they figured stuff would wash up. they will do reverse drift calculations to find the search area. >> how long could that take do you think? >> it could -- it's a good question. i mean it could be a week.
7:36 pm
it could be weeks. it could be a month. i mean at this point it's too hard to narrow down. >> so let's say they discover a natural debris field. >> sure. >> the genome to fin goal to fik box. 18 months, could they still get something out of it? >> there could be some data on there but it's been a year and a half, the saltwater is very corrosive. if it is in fact not damaged, if it's damaged or seriously damaged that could be a different story. we'll keep our fingers crossed that it is intact and working. >> again just you know this is not necessarily this piece of this missing plane. but what's your gut telling you? >> i think it actually is. i mean, right now there's only one 777 missing in the ocean and they're pretty much leaning from the fact that it's from a 777. like i said i think they already
7:37 pm
know, they are just dotting their i's and crossing their t's. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> the pentagon is coming closer to arnlg civilian arming civilit recruiting facilities. coming on the heels of an incident that left five dead. what changes does secretary carter want to see? >> reporter: well, erica right now most members of the military who serve on u.s. soil are unarmed with the exception of military police and other designated military personnel. but secretary carter has ordered chiefs to consider if and when more troops should be allowed to carry weapons for their own protection. defense secretary ash carter says the july 16th attacks in chattanooga illustrate a continuing threat to military
7:38 pm
personnel in the united states posed whra by what he called home grown military extremists. he posed to military officers to come up with an action plan to significantly upgrade security particularly at so-called off installation facilities such as the tennessee recruiting station that was located in a shopping center. in his just issued memo carter directs the commanders to work within existing dod policy to augment security. including additional personnel. carter wants the services to tell him if the idea of arming troops on desk duty is a good idea. >> looking at arming personnel doesn't mean that that's what the service ultimately decide. it does tell them they have within dod policy anyway the authority to do that. >> reporter: the pentagon says there are more than 7,000 u.s. military facilities that are not
7:39 pm
on base or other areas where restrictions on access provide a basic first line of defense. those facilities include recruiting stations rotc units and recruiting centers. but the pentagon doesn't want well meaning defense to show up outside military facilities to protect the civilian force. we ask that civilians do not stand guard at recrueltying offices. it could unintentionally create security risks. one point, it's not clear when someone approaches a military facility with a gun, whether they're a friend or foe. the pentagon wands to see other upgrades such as better physical
7:40 pm
procedures and tighter facilities, and better mass alert system so everyone is noiferred right away of a threat of -- notified right away of the presence of an active shooter. he's given facilities until august 31 to get back to him with a plan. erica. >> thank you, jamie. dr. martin luther king, jr. was once a pastor at the ebb ebenezer baptist church. three teen aged girls apparently swindled i.s.i.l. recruiters out of thousands of
7:41 pm
dollars. ines ferre has the story. >> this is one of the three chechen girls her face obscured to protect her identity who allegedly scammed i.s.i.l. fighters for thousands of dollars. the three made them think they would be their brides. told them they had no money to travel from chechnya to syria. that's when the i.s.i.l. fighter offered to send money. i said i had no money and he said he would help. >> according to russian live the girls received the money but never went to syrian. police say the trio made about $3300. the young woman you just saw now has not been charged but has confessed to everything. the other girls were detained on
7:42 pm
charges of fraud. it is unclear though whether they will receive any punishment for the scam. >> that was ines ferre reporting reporting. senate joined house in voting to keep funds going to transportation projects for three months. the senate and house are also considering two long term bills without the three month extension. federal funding for transportation projects would have run out this weekend. in the campaign for white house democratic candidate bernie sanders is holding his own with events that are drawing enthusiastic crowds. today he told the hispanic chamber of commerce that his issues are resonating with american voters. david schuster joins us. david. >> pointing to a slew of polls and social media campaigns showing he is gaifng ground. they are directing anyone who would listen, an online
7:43 pm
fundraising event the campaign held last night. >> the bernie sanders event had all the trappings of a typical house party. dozens came to eat, drink and talk politics the land was a short speech by the populace candidate himself. >> it is wrong that people are working 30 to 40 hours a week and still living in poverty. enough is enough. we have got to raise that minimum wage to $15 an hour. >> the difference of this sanders speech was that it was delivered live over the internet. based on the rsvfs in advance the number of people who participated totaled more than 100,000. >> when we stand together, there is nothing, nothing, nothing that we cannot accomplish. >> reporter: coast to coast from california to this art gallery in new york city, it all ended up as the biggest
7:44 pm
fundraising event for any candidate so far. away from the crowds and the senate office building we spoke one on one with senator sanders for his digital effort. >> we need to develop a grass roots movement and the way you do is people communicate with each other, what has to be done, who's going to be knocking on doors, who's going to be passing out literate, et cetera, et cetera. >> at 24 years old, kenneth pennington was the digital director. >> you never know what could go wrong but it's mostly old fashioned e-mail and web communication that gets this going on at the end of the day. >> the passion of sanders also seems to help. one of the most popular social media hashtags is this one.
7:45 pm
what goes through your mind when you see the signs, "feel the burn," was that used in any of the other campaigns? >> i have no idea where it came from. there are a lot of things that happen spontaneously, which excite me a lot. literally i read in papers, about meetings that we have nothing to do to organize. >> ben thorp, a chef, this space is his living room. >> the technology is really amazing to see you know we've got needs from all over the world right here in my little apartment and it's all live streaming which is fantastic. >> other people were thrilled just to meet senator sanders, give him an inspirational poster or get a picture of this guy getting a picture drinking a beer with him. the individuals said the night was a huge organizational
7:46 pm
success. >> we're going to take leaders to take actionable steps to make the campaign move forward like knocking on doors or making phone calls. >> based on passionate and perhaps unprecedented online efforts. in money and polling the sanders campaign remains quite far behind the democratic front runner hillary clinton. but they believe they are moving forward quickly and the equivalent of lightning in a bottle. >> anything surprising about him? >> surprising, offcamera it is just an act. bernie sanders is the same on camera as off camera. he's been talking about these issues for 20 years and to him this is sort of natural. he is who he is and he's not putting forward an act. what's a surprise is that all of a sudden the rest of the country is taking notice. >> what's his true path to victory, going up against a
7:47 pm
serious contendedder in hillary clinton. >> you win in new hampshire, you get a lot of free media, and go to supertuesday, and hopefully hillary has burned through a lot of her money and the avalanche sustains him. but in the sanders camp a lot of things have to go their way. but on the online support and the energy they're getting from these events that's a start. >> all right, david schuster, thank you so much. swimming in sewage. olympic athletes at risk, from contaminated water in brazil. >> and the oldest baseball card, the system that kept it all these years is finally ready to part with it. it.
7:48 pm
7:49 pm
bridge that. >> a lot of innocent lives are still being lost.
7:50 pm
>> officials with the u.s. fish and wildlife service say they want to talk to the minnesota dentist who killed cecil the lion but they cannot find him. walter palmer, they have visited his office and he is not there. public extradition to catch palmer. not ready for competition as kimberly halkett reports, the sewage water could put the athletes at risk. >> with sugarloaf mountain in the background. this is what they want for sailing competition. but on closer inspection, the
7:51 pm
