"newsroom international" starts right now with susan malveaux. welcome to "newsroom international." i'm suzanne malveaux. here's what's going on right now around the world. >> you are lisping to war planes pounding neighborhoods across syria. this is youtube video from syrian homes. in aleppo to the knott activist saz three children were among the eight who were killed. people are digging through rubble right now looking for those buried under those destroyed buildings. >>take a look at this. this is a sign thats support israel, defeat jihad. this sign is in new york.
the controversial ad is going to appear in ten new york subway station this is week. first jihad referring to as savage. the court ruling forced the transit authority to actually put those up. a spokesman for the council on american islamic relations says the advertisement is designed to offend. take a look at this. in india -- nine people died in this stampede and religious compound in the eastern part of the country. tens of thousands have gathered for a celebration marking the birth of a reveered hindu leader. well, police -- a deputy police commissioner tells a local paper that this stampede started when an elderly woman fell and then others fell on top of her. a family member of one victim says it started when people tried to push through the entrance of that gate. movers, shakers, they're in business, government, foundations. all meeting in new york right now to tackle some of the world's toughest problems. we're talking about the clinton
global initiative bringing together more than 1,000 leaders from around the world. secretary of state hillary clinton spoke earlier today at the event convened by her husband, of course, former president bill clinton. she said the u.s. is committed to improving lives and promoting dignity. >> we are championing the universal human rights of all people, including the right to worship freely, to assemble and protest peacefully, and, yes, to freedom of expression. these rights are bound together inseperable not just in our constitution, but in the deck las vegas of human rights. threatening one threatens all. we want to bring in our foreign affairs correspondent to talk about this, jill dougherty. jill, obviously, i think the tone of these meetings is very different this year because it comes on the heels of all these attacks that we've seen on u.s. embassies across the middle east here and, of course, the death
of the u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens. how does the secretary of state and how does the former president -- how could they move forward on their agenda realizing that there is so much volatility in the region? >> well, you know, suzanne, i think one of the key issues is the economic side of it because, after all, a lot of these countries -- look at ejust a minute, for example. they have huge numbers of young people with no jobs. so these -- this poverty and the lack of jobs, lack of opportunity and very large numbers of young people fuels sometimes the problems. these kids basically have nothing to do, and then they could be inspired to do something, you know, demonstrate, or do something else more violent. if you look, suzanne -- i was just thinking, secretary clinton, when she walked into that room, she noted that they have a combined endowment of those groups of $50 billion. that's huge. what they want to do is try to
help by getting that money, helping organizations in those countries. >> and, jill, one of the things beyond the initiative, swuf state hillary clinton will be meeting with world leaders on the side of the united states general assembly meetings that are happening over the next couple of days. i understand that she met with pakistan's leader later today. we saw some of the most egreejs and violent protests out of pakistan over the weekend. what does she hope to accomplish from that meeting? >> well, that's one of the problems. as these countries now, the arab spring countries, are going through changes, they can have severe difficulties in moving from a repressive regime that could be 40, 50 years old into what could be democracy or maybe not. that's some of the problem that is we're seeing right now. i would like to play some sound from the secretary because she referred to that dilemma between really not letting these revolutions get hijacked. let's listen to what she said.
>> the people of the arab world did not set out to trade the tierney of the dictator for the tearany of a mob. there is no dignity in that. the people of benghazi -- in their midst and clee re-claimed the honor and dignity of a courageous city. they mourn the loss of ambassador chris stevens, a friend and champion of a free libya, and his fallen comrades. >> of course, that's one sad example of had you things can go very, very wrong, suzanne. >> jill, we know that she's also going to be meeting with the libyan leader as well as the leader of afghanistan, hamid karzai, in the days to come. we'll be looking to see if there's anything that comes of that as well. jill dougherty, thank you.
more than 50 current and former heads of state are participating in this clinton global initiative, and, of course, the gop presidential nominee, he is also going to have a role. president obama, is he going to speak tomorrow at noon eastern. mitt romney is giving a speech a couple of hours later. egyptian president mohammed morsi will take part in a closing session. he is going to speak on wednesday. sanctions against iran may be harsher than ever, but iran continues to build its nuclear program. it's got some special all-out attack, and israel could kwoom at any time. canada called the country the most significant threat to global security today. piers morgan spoke with iranian's president anewed ahmadinejad and asked him about the inevitability of war. >> do you fear that war is imminent?
do you fear that there will be merl conflict perhaps even before the end of this year between your country and israel? >> translator: of course, the zionists are very much -- very adventureso adventuresome, very much seeking to fabricate things. i think they see themselves at the end of the line, and i do firmly believe that they think to create opportunities for themselves and their adventurous behaviors. >> you can see the full interview on piers morgan tonight. that is 9:00 eastern time right here on cnn. so is war with iran really inevitable? is the u.s. going to be forced to get involved? want to bring in christopher hill, the former u.s. ambassador to iraq and also head of the u.s. delegation on talks with north korea and its nuclear issue. now he is the dean of the school of international studies, university of denver. good to see you, chris. first of all, i want to play a bit of sound prosecute president
ahmadinejad here because he really is setting the stage hoor for what we think is going to be a conflict, but also i want to talk a little bit about israel and whether or not they see an attack on iran as an opportunity. what do we -- what do we thif the language from ahmadinejad and from netanyahu, whether or not that is really going to happen? >> i'm sorry. were you going to play the tape? >> no. chris, if you could, explain to us -- i know that ahmadinejad has already made some comments and he is saying here that he believes that potential of war with iran could be inevitable. do we think this is just a bunch of bluster. we've heard this from him before. >> well, there's certainly a lot of bluster. i mean, if there were an israeli strike, it would not be to change the hearts and minds of the iranians. it would be a sort of kinetic attack on their capabilities, so i think one of the big questions that needs to be answered is
could an israeli strike really set them back. by set them back i mean years and years. most experts i'm hearing are saying that, no, it cannot. so if you have a situation where a strike doesn't really set them back more than a few months or one or two years, then you have to ask yourself the question, what's the purpose of this apart from somehow drawing the u.s. into a much tougher a much bigger conflict, so i don't think anyone wants that, and i think we still have to spend some time on diplomacy here and give the sanctions time to work and get i think a broader array of countries behind us on this. >> chris, you said in the past you think negotiations of dim home's, they serve a purpose even if you know they're likely to fail. you've got to show you've done everything that you possibly could. do you think that when you are at that point between iran and israel? >> i don't think we're at that point. i think the diplomacy so far has been a few meetings, but they tend to be sort of three and out
meetings. they show up on tuesday and talk on wednesday and leave on thursday. i don't think we've seen a sign that the iranians are really serious about it, but more, we have a lot of cards on the table, so i don't think the diplomacy has really gone too far. i think the problem is that if we go in this kind of slow way, i think we're allowing the iranians to, you know, use up time as they develop their capabilities, so i think it's very important to quicken the diplomatic pace, but i think it's also very important to be very closely talking to these allies and these potential combatants because i don't think we could walk away from this. i don't think anyone thinks that a nuclear iran is an acceptable outcome, so i think if it comes to military force, we need to make sure that this is something where we have allies, and i think the idea that israel could do this, i think it's really quite -- i don't think they have the kind of ordinance they need
to make it happen. >> should the united states being paying attention to either of those leaders, whether it's ahmadinejad or netanyahu. we have heard from ban ki moon, ahmadinejad, tone down the rhetoric here. do we think that either one of these leaders is speaking in a way that is clear and is rationale at this point? >> well, i mean, first of all, the israelis are allies of the u.s., so absolutely we should be listening to them. we should be listening to prime minister netanyahu even if we don't agree. i'm not sure i like the idea of what he has done with his red lines, which is to create some -- if they pass a certain line, you automatically go to war. that's not really how we fight, not how a democracy fights. i think we need to listen to him, and i think we need to be in close contact with him. as for ahmadinejad, i think you really have to understand where he sits in the iranian political system, and he is the kd of front guy who makes a lot of
statements on a given day. i wouldn't take him with that kind of utmost seriousness. >> chris, you have been in a situation many times as a diplomat, former diplomat, yourself and the tragedy that happened in libya this past week with the killing of our u.s. ambassador there, ambassador stevens. there were mixed reports, of course, over the weekend discovering what actually happened and took place there that this was something that perhaps the state department could have looked at ad had a more robust sense of security around the ambassador and his team. when you see what took place in libya, do you think that he had enough protection? >> well, most of us who have looked at it as you have certainly have a number of questions, and that's why i think it is highly appropriate to have an accountability and review board. this will be something led by very distinguished american diplomats who knows a thing or two about protecting embassies. that is ambassador tom pickering. i think there are a lot of questions that are out there. perhaps they all have answers.
we haven't heard the answers yet. i think it is very important we get to the bottom of this because, unfortunately, this type of incident in benghazi has happened before and will happen again. i mean, our diplomats are out there in tough circumstances. we cannot wait to be completely buttoned down. we cannot wait for all the security mechanismso be there. we have to manage risk, and i think we need to be out there. it's a tough situation. we need to get some answers. >> all right. chris hill, thank you. good to see you, as always. one of motown's most famous singers, smoky robinson, launches a plan to get clean clinicing water to folks around the world. candidates counts to win elections in brazil. we explore why more than a dozen of them decide to use the u.s. president ae estmaim instead of their own. es. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel.
enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up.

including american ambassador chris stevens. for more we bring in michael holmes here. michael, first of all, we know that two of these militia groups, they're coming down real hard on them. do we think that this is actually going to solve the problem, or there are many, many other groups that are going to may hay? >> i think it's a good start. you know, we've been talking about this on this show for a long time about these militia groups that remained after the revolution and basically took on law and order in their own little areas. this is what the government wants to get rid of. you've seen a couple since the government spoke out disbanding. others have agreed to come in under the umbrella of the government. coming to the fold, if you like. they've been working as pretty much like localized security contractors, if you like, keeping law and order if various towns and cities. they're in tripoli and benghazi. they're all over the country. not all militias are created equal. you have moderates who are willing to play ball with the government. then you have the more ultra conservative islamist groups that we've seen too. they have their own militias.
the question is will they go easily into the night? will they go underground? then you have others who really feel more of a loyalty to the local tribes and territories than they do to the national identity. >> we're looking at these dramatic pictures here. obviously, tell us a little bit about the role of the libyan people? i mean, the fact that there is this uprising that seems to be pushing and cracking down on these militia brupz. >> this is what the government loves saying, by the way. the government in libya and also the u.s. government. it was the death of ambassador stevens and the other americans that got these libyans who like the u.s. we helped them get rid of gadhafi. they came out on the streets. this one islamist militia, they blamed for being involved in the killing of ambassador stevens. they get out there. they protest. that militia has now left town. they've disbanded. it was people power that feared that. the government saw that happen. they said, right, now is the time for us to issue this ultimatum. get on piggyback, if you like, on the public sent meant, which is against extremism. >> we still have not really
heard in any way who is responsible for this attack on the u.s. consulate. do we have any more information? does the libyan government have any more information on that point? >> yeah. this is -- benghazi was linked, and the locals think they were involved. there is no hard evidence at the moment. you know, this is an important mood, though. what we're seeing is something the u.s., for example, will be glad to see. you know, what you have -- the u.s. wants this government to -- they're democratically elected. importantly, they are secular. the people we want to the polls. they did not elect an islamist government. they elected a secular government. that government wants to keep a lid on extremism. that's a good thing. the u.s. wants this to work. they would be in favor of what we just saw happen. the one thing that you always have to mention, though, is that libyan officials have said that thief felt that after the gadhafi fell, interest from the west waned a little, and they point to afghanistan and iraq and say look what you did for them, rebuilding institutions, and they need that support.
>> that's what they want. >> material and financial to rebuild. >> it will be really interesting to see secretary clinton and her fighting with the libyan president. whether or not had he ask for that kind of aid because that is so crucial. >> i bet they will. it's such a fascinating country, and it is a little bit of a bright light, you know, in terms of some of the other unrest we've seen around the place. we need one of those. >> thank you, michael. talking about sweet 16 party going terribly wrong. yeah. so a teenage girl posted her birthday invitation on facebook. she front of to set it to private so, what happened? thousands showed up and showed out. we'll take to you the netherlands. >> we're used to his love bal d balla ballads. ♪ >> nice, but now smoky robinson has a new love. it is going viral all over the world. we're going to explain. as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true.

dead. four of them, one german, one italian, one -- and one spanish. it is believed the avalanche might have been cleared and keep in mind it's the size of six or seven football fields. they're glaciers. survivors say they managed open to break occupy chunks of ice and snow and rolled 700 feet to roll away. what cause this is? does that sound like there would be a piece of ice that would just fall from a glacier? >> it sounded like tlvs more to it than just that. there was snow with it. very loose snow. light snow that came down. maybe a corn is up on top, which is kind of a -- when the wind blows off -- sometimes the roof. when i was living in buffalo, the roof would have a big overhang of snow that eventually would just fall off. we would call it an avalanche falling off the roof. not really ae real one. this came above them. about 1,000 feet above them. it had a lot of velocity and it took them down 300 meters down
below. almost 600 feet or more below from where they started. they tumbled in their bedrolls new york their tents down the mountain. it's a steep mountain. beam wouldn't climb this. it's 24,000 feet high. it's one of the eight tallest mountains out there. it is a tough climb. although not an impossible climb. that's why so many people go up there. there are two seasons. the best season to do this is spring because there's not new snou snow in spring. it doesn't slow snoe a lot more. the snow is already packed this. then all of a sudden you get monsoon monsoonal when the monsoon stops there's the post-monsoon season is now. there was snow last week, so the monsoon was just late ending. that snow was on top of the mountain, and it had to come down. it just does. that's what it sdsh even though
we call it post-monsoon season, it was still avalanche season to that mountain. it hadn't changed the season yet. >> sure. how common are they in that region because i know local mountain guides have reported there's more of this ice melting because of global warming on the peaks? >> it's kind of not true. some of the mountains in the him laya, unlike all the others in the world are getting bigger, so not melting like so many of these glagsiers are across the country, across the world, kras across the globe. the issue is that i think this late season snow caused it. it wasn't so much of ice off like a glacier that you would see in antarctica. this was a late season unanticipated snow that there are already 24,000 feet up the mountain. they couldn't get back down even though they knew there was danger up above. >> all right, chad. thank you very much. appreciate it. he was arrested a decade ago. >> translator: i completely lost my mind. if a person doesn't sleep for seven days hanging from a ceiling, my body aching, what

u.s. military facing allegations of serious abuse at the baghram prison many afghanistan. public records are out there, but few give details about what exactly went on behind those bars. cnn has exclusive interview with one of the men who was held captive there. anna corin has the story. >> reporter: mohammed in as i'm has come a long way to tell me his story. traveling more than 300 kilometers from his home near the pakistani border to kabul. a story that began almost a decade ago when he was arrested
in october 2002. they accused me of being involved with the taliban, attacking alalbad airport 40 kilometers from my home, he says, but i told them how was i involved when you arrested me in my house? according to u.s. records, nassim headline possession of rocket mortars and other equipment when he was detained. nassim denied that. his troublings were just beginning. he was taken to baghram prison, at the time run by the u.s. defense department, and says he was soon tortured. they gave me electric shocks on my wrists. i was hung from the ceiling for seven days. our faces were masked, and we were handcuffed. our legs were chained as well. he says some prisoners committed suicide. he also thought about ending his life. i completely lost my mind. if a person doesn't sleep for seven days hanging from the ceiling, my body aching, what hope do they have? they would hit our head into the wall.
i thought i was going to die. after five months at baghram, nassim was shipped off to guantanamo bay detention facility where he was assessed as a medium risk prisoner. showing me his id band, the 36-year-old describes conditions inside. guantanamo was not like baghram, he says. every prisoner had their own small room, and after three months they took us to camp five where it was very strict. it was difficult to cope, but not as bad as baghram. after four and a half years nassim was finally released. the foreigners said we're sorry, but what to do with they're sorry? you take me away from my family, my children. i lost five years of my life. there are around 200 prisoners like mohammed nassim who have been transferred from guantanamo bay back to their homes here in afghanistan. some of them were low-level foot soldiers. others may simply have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
human rights groups say there definitely was a pattern of abuse at baghram prison. and a u.s. military investigation into the deaths of two prisoners at the prison found that abuse had been widespread in 2002 and 2003. during the same period, nassim was there. unrolling the documentation given to him by u.s. authorities, he asked me to read it. this declaration says that nassim mohammed, that being you, was detained at guantanamo bay, cuba, during such armed conflict. it then goes on to say that it has agreed that nassim mohammed will not be further detained by the united states. there is no written apology, and there was no compensation. nassim's anger has subsided over the past six years, but he believes it's time for foreign forces to get out of afghanistan and let afghans look after their own country. anna corin, cnn, kabul. >> cnn has called and e-mailed the defense department to get a

do we have any progress? >> what we do know is they manage, suzanne, to hammer out some economic issues. the revenue sharing of the oil, which is so crucial for getting a revenue to south sudan, to sudan and, in fact, to get the oil out to the rest of the world. there are many out to those points, but they're still sick sitting on the security side of things. they are meeting at the palace in ethiopia. those meetings could go on well into the night. they have both the threat of sanctions on them, and also obviously, trying to kick start the economies and producing oil for the world supply. >> we know hillary clinton has weighed in on this. they say that both these leaders have to dwlifr peace, security, and prosperity for the people of sudan and south sudan. is this really seen as a last chance for these two leaders to get together and resolve this, or could we possibly see a back slide into war? >> well, you could see a back slide into war. not necessarily right at this moment, but that is the great risk. sudan and south sudan previously
fought a civil war for decades. many millions killed. of course, the u.s. government is particularly anxious at this -- these talks already hammered out in the next few hours. they have the threat of sanctions against them. the u.s. played a very key part in negotiating a peace settlement between north and south. there is proven oil reserves for the u.s. and other parts of the region as an oil supply. they need to figure out this and figure it out now, but they're still in the talks. closed-door talks. we should find out later tonight if they make any real deals which will help develop their countries. >> all right. david, i know you'll be keeping a close eye on those talks. let us know if anything comes of it today. there is a pretty good chance that barack obama could win in brazil. that is because brazilian candidates use his name, not theirs, all 16 of them. they're going to tell you why. you look a little lost.

and lenny kravitz. >> barack obama has a dead on chance at winning -- in brazil. that is because down there is he all over the ballot. it seems as if braiselian candidates like his brand. they can't seem to get enough of him. now back in sao pau even found a barack obama look-alike making a run for office. ♪ barack obama hey barack obama, ho ♪ >> if only barack obama were running for office in brazil. he is so popular here that 16 candidates for municipal elections have adopted his name. it doesn't stop with the u.s. president. in a bid to stand out ballots for the october 7 vote, they are filled with names both heroic and just plain bizarre. bin laden says he is going to blow up corruption. for some a sign of political immaturity. for others proof that brazil's democracy is flourishing.
after all, this is the country where everyone from footballers to presidents go by their first names or even their nicknames. candidates were inspired after a tv -- i'm talking about obama -- >> this man was invited to run for local councilman for the simple reason that he is a dead ringer for the real obama. his platform, ironically, is health reform. trimplgts i use this name because i think it can bring me votes, he says, but i need to separate just being a body double from being a politician. this man agrees. >> translator: i'll be open to his proposals, he says, but politics aren't a swroek. >> reporter: for others it's all about the looks. with that face and appearance, he says, it will be hard to go wrong.
obama b.h. says he is pretty sure no one in this race has adopted the name of the u.s. republican candidate. but who knows for the next elections in two years, he says. maybe by then there will be some mitt romneys. we have to hope that the jingles are just as catchy. >> all right. she's joining us live from brazil. you know, i love brazil. you got to love it. the color. the culture. all this. now you got these obama look-alikes. are people really taking these candidates seriously? >> well, i know it's really hard to believe. some of these seem outrageous, but they really do take them seriously. i think that the example of that popular tv clown is perfect. this guy was the most voted candidate for the last congressional elections just because people thought he was funny in some cases. even once he was elected, had he to take a literacy test to prove that he could do the job. of course, others say that there is a bit of a protest vote
involved. they complain about corruption. they say they've had enough of brazilian politics, so they're going to vote for the clown. even on the serious side, the most popular president in recent history here in brazil, president lula goes by his nickname. lula translates as squid. can you imagine that? his real name is loisi de silva. he adopted that name because so many other people already used it and put it on the ballot, and that's what everybody knows him by, lula. even the former president goes by her first name. everyone refers to her as dilma this and that. it's a laid back country. either you like it or you don't. >> first name basis, your president. that's not bad. how do they campaign? is there anything that they take from american culture in terms of how they're campaigning? >> i think on the more serious level, definitely. you'll see the top candidates -- right now, of course, it isn't presidential elections, but you do have some important races. the sao paulo mayor. other big cities. they'll do the sort of interview
circuit and especially the debate circuit. they're getting that from the united states. they're copying that part of the model. so much of it is these automatic prepaid really short little spots, so the only way to stand out is to be excentric character, do a dance, wear a costume. they're only on air a couple of seconds, so that's how they try to get noticed. >> we hope it doesn't get to that here. you never know. got a couple more weeks. all right. thank you. good to see you. >> could be more fun. >> yeah. absolutely. hard lesson to learn about facebook privacy settings, but this is an invitation that went viral. riot police had to actually break up the party.
