11:00 pm
dzhokhar. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. we given this hour with the latest on the investigation of the boston marathon attack. authorities believe the brothers who allegedly carried out last monday's deadly bombings are planning more attacks. >> tamerlan tsarnaev and dzhokhar tsarnaev are believed to have agected alone. he could face federal terrorism and face murder charges.
11:01 pm
>> two bombs injured nearly 200 people and dilled three. the brothers also allegedly killed a police officer while on the run. >> 29-year-old crystal campbell had gone to the marathon to cheer on the runners. >> also today boston university will hold a memorial service r lingzi lu. >> authorities wait to fully question dzhokhar tsarnaev, but it's not clear if he'll everybody be able to talk again. elizabeth cohen joins us from boston where it is 2:00 a.m. and
11:02 pm
the vigil continues and what kind of shape is he in? >> we are told that he's in the intensive care unit and that he has been intubated and sedated, that means a tube has been put down his throat, he's been attached to a ventilator which is breathing for him. in this case they sedate patients because it's so uncomfortable, even painful. you can't have a conversation when they're in this condition. they can put them on sedation holidays where you take them off the sedation briefly to assess
11:03 pm
their cognitive ability. >> he's a suspected terrorist after all, are there police officers by the bed in scrubs guarding him. >> our affiliate tells us that there are two guards by the bed and he is handcuffed to the bed. i would guess these guards are not wearing scrubs, they're not touching him or doing procedures on him. but a guard at each side, handcuffed to the bed and guards outside at the door. we are told in the intensive care unit, he's been separateded off kind of in his own little area away from patients. >> i was just curious about whether i was coming there to visit a family member, is it
11:04 pm
obvious that there's a suspected terrorist in that hospital? >> you would notice. there's police officers at entrances, they're asking people are you here to visit someone, why are you here? so it's certainly not impossible to get in here, but it is heightened security. john, the chairman of the house homeland security committee says there's no way that the tsarnaev brothers were just homegrown troublemakers. >> there were reports that they sad suicide vests on. you don't learn that overnight. i personal believe this has been received training when he was over there and he radicalized from 2010 to the present. and nine months after he comes
11:05 pm
back from the chechen reason, he pulls off the largest terrorist attacks since 9/11. the bomber was linked to a video called terrorists. let's bring in our own nick payton walsh who has the exclusive story from inside kyrgyzstan. >> clearly people have been trying to look at the past of the brother, particularly the elder tamerlan, particularly here in southern russia where his parents still live. is there a connection between this gunfight involving militants and police in bagistan and one of the boston bombers. the website of tamerlan tsarnaev suggests there might have been.
11:06 pm
the video was removed but cnn has now found it and it shows this man. abu dujan is the name used by an islamist militant. russian special forces hit his hideout last december, an am mored car brought in to kill six militants inside. four months later, the marks remain of the tit for tat violence. neighbors told us that the young man who once lived here seemed peaceful, ordinary, but in the dust there's a question. in a town where tsarnaev's father lived and where tamerlan
11:07 pm
visited just last year. here could be the clearest link yet between one of the alleged boston bombers and the violence that's been gripping southern russia. a u.s. intelligence source told cnn that the tsarnaev brother social media accounts are being examined to possible links to extremists in the caucuses, in case they reveal the darkest secrets in boston. why did the bombers do it? now this doesn't mean that tamerlan tsarnaev and -- also a man living in the same town as his father. >> what of this prominentant group there that released a
11:08 pm
statement on sunday denying any links to the boston bombers, what can you tell us about the group and the statement they put out? >> reporter: they're saying they're a monolithic movement out here. they put out this statement out that represents all sorts of different parts of that. they clearly said, look, we have nothing to do with the boston bombings at all. the current head of the chechen extremist movement has said we shouldn't attack civilians so this is all in their mind part of some kind of game from the russian officials. but it's a definite move by parts of the underground to distance themselves and there's likely repercussions but it shows you if there is a link here how fractured the whole radical extremist movement has
11:09 pm
become after decades now of intense violence. >> some exclusive details, joining us there, nic, always appreciated. we're going to take a closer look at what we can expect from the legal case against the boston bomber. stay tuned for more coverage here on cnn. i'm telling you right now, the girl back at home would absolutely not have taken a zip line in the jungle.

welcome back, everyone. more now on the boston bombings. authorities still haven't said what charges will be filed against the surviving suspect. but a justice department official has told cnn he'll face federal terrorism charges and
11:13 pm
could also face state murder charges and some believe the exceptional nature of this case needs an exceptional response. emily smith reports from washington. >> reporter: more questions are emerging about the boston bombing suspects. did the fbi do enough to learn about one brother and now the younger brother? >> we should be allowed to question him for intelligence gathering purposes to find out about future attacks and terrorist organizations that may exist that he has knowledge of. >> reporter: republican senator lindsay graham says the enemy combatant designation should allow him to question dzhokhar tsarnaev. dianne feinstein says that questioning can be held before -- it lets investigators
11:14 pm
question a suspect about any imminent threat. >> i'm not really worried about whether they can be convicted, my question is what else would they have been up to, who are their associateds, how did he become radicalizes and is there a chechen connection. >> and there's also questions about tamerlan who died during the man hunt. the fbi says it never received more information from russia. >> why is this fbi interview important? because if he was on the radar and they let him go, he's on the russians radar, why wasn't a flag put on him, some sort of customs flag. >> senator mccall -- >> why wasn't he interviewed after he came back whether at the airport when he was
11:15 pm
returning or later and what happened in chechnya. >> massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty, but the federal government does. chuck schumer and dianne feinstein both democrats say they think the death penalty would be appropriate under federal law in this case. emily schmidt, cnn, washington. for more on the legal case ahead let's bring in tanya akard, good to see you again. what we have been hearing from the justice department or at least one official there is that tsarnaev is likely to face federal terrorism charges and state murder charges. now is that interesting? is it obvious? does it give us any sense of where authorities are headed with this case? >> clearly, we're talking about two parallel tracks. we have got federal law which it's the federal government that has responsibility for prosecuting terrorism cases, typically in the first instance and as your reporter pointed
11:16 pm
out, the federal government does provide for the death penalty in these types of matters. so while in massachusetts, under state law, there are state charges to be filed because people were killed and massachusetts has the right to protect its citizens and to seek justice for those deaths, but the death penalty simply isn't an option. so what we really will see are two parallel tracks as this case moves forward. >> if there are federal charges against tsarnaev, there are people in massachusetts, a jury that hasn't got the habit of handing down the death penalty. does it help his case that it will potentially be massachusetts jurors who will be trying this case. >> i think that a lot of the times and certainly in very high profile cases, where large
11:17 pm
numbers of people in the community have been exposed to the case, certainly everybody is going to have some exposure to the case. it will be rare and probably very unusual to find somebody who hasn't, but jurors typically follow the law. and in a federal prosecution, i assure you that the federal prosecutor is going to give very explicit instructions about why the death penalty is warranted here and why the jurors are legally obligated to apply federal law to that federal prosecution. even though juries don't do things we think they always should do, they are presumed to follow the law and they typically do. >> do you think he's going to get a fair trial? >> that might be a little bit outside my pay grade. this case has aroused incredibly high emotions. we don't know all the answers yet, we don't know who these
11:18 pm
brothers may or may not have been working with. there's been some suggestion that the explosive devices that were used were really a little more advanced than might be expected for two people who were amateur bombmakers. there's so many unanswered questions that it's hard to figure out what the emotions are going to be, how much more inflamed and impassioned this case is going to become. certainly if we get reports that they were working with others, that there might be some other broader link to this horrible event, then you're going see an even further inflaming of passions, but the people who step inside this courtroom will be given very precise instructions and jurors typically are very good at following the precise instructions that they certainly will be given. >> this isn't going to happen tomorrow. everything's happened so quickly, the bombs went off on
11:19 pm
monday, and now it's just been a week. this is going to go on for an awfully long time before that first day in court and before the last of the appeals is over? >> once this case starts to make its way through the legal system, then it really is going to move and i'm sure much to the consternation and frustration of lots of americans, not simply the victims. it's going to move slowly, you're going to see legal challenges i imagine to the interrogation that has been discussed, this suspect has not been given his miranda rights under the public -- you're going to have a hearing over that. there will be multiple procedures in this case that will take place even before a trial begins. >> tanya acker, live in los angeles this evening. thanks very much. >> a deadly and destructive earthquake has hit southwestern china. >> the death toll is rising and rescue workers are struggling

a powerful earthquake struck china on friday. ed mckenzie has the latest for us from the center of the quake zone. and is this still considered a search and rescue operation? give us some sense of the response. >> reporter: well, they're holding out hope, but certainly that window to rescue people is rapidly closing. this earthquake struck at 8:00 a.m. local time on saturday, shook houses, destroyed homes, and frightened people. i want to show you the gaul
11:25 pm
residence, this family was living in this two-story home when the quake struck and the windows and walls were blown out. they trieded to escape, all six of them. but the grandfather didn't make it. they just buried him earlier today. but certainly families in this area are bearing the brunt of this earthquake both from a personal point of view and their livelihoods, people are living outside, living in tents, trying to make due. food, water and shelter are the three things that the red cross says are needed immediately. and we have seen a large volunteer response. >> according to state media, 186 injured, thousand -- 186 have lost their lives, thousands and
11:26 pm
thousands injured. how are medical professionals coping with all of this? >> reporter: it's an interesting question, we were in the capital of this region last night and the hospitals were abandoned because they were unstable. they had the triage center on the outside of the building trying to do what they can to help those injured. but the gaul family behind me, who are living in a situation like this, living not even in a real tent, just a lean-to as it were. the daughter 7 years old said she was very sad that her grandfather had died. >> david, we'll continue to check in with you, thank you. a story now we continue to
11:27 pm
cover, it's close to all of our hearts, it's now one week since the deadly bombing attacks that rocked this year's boston marathon. >> now here with more on how sport is helping boston to heal. mark? >> i can tell you with authority that boston is one of the greet sports cities. boston's nhl team gets into a 3-0 win against the panthers. after the game, each player took their jerseys off and signed them and one by one gave them to the first responders. and the red sox played against -- officer mcgwire was one of the first on the scene when the bomb went off at the
11:28 pm
finish line of the marathon. she was one of the three officers, we see them over and over again running toward the finish line and then being knocked down to the ground by the force of the blast. i should say that shorts heroes, sports men and women are heroes, but you saw the tables turn over the past few days in boston where the sporting heroes gave the real heros the honor. big news on the football page? >> millions saw it and what they saw was certainly shocking. it came out of liverpool footballer in trouble again. the english football association will certainly look at this. the game between liverpool and chelsey, using his teeth, the pictures are telling. it's the 65th minute. liverpool trailed 2-1. center of the screen, you see
11:29 pm
evanovich go down. he protested to the referee who spoke to the player after -- he issued an apology that read in part, i am deeply sorry for my inexcusable behavior. understatement. >> i do not believe that he's deeply sorry, it's none of my business, but it's not the first time. as you can see in this video, this was not like flesh that was close to his face in the middle of a battle. it was twilight, he was leaning in like a vampire. >> i had thought for many years about mike tyson biting evander hollyfield's ear, but avenue this played out, guess who became a follower of mike tyson?
11:30 pm
he's a follower on twitter now. >> always appreciate it, thank you. we'll be back with more, you're watching the newsroom, don't go away. nurses are dealing with a wider range of issues. and there are ever-changing regulations. when you see these challenges, do you want to back away or take charge? with a degree in the field of healthcare or nursing from capella university, you'll have the knowledge to advance your career while making a difference in the lives of patients. let's get started at capella.edu.

11:42 pm
federal prosecutors are preparing charges against dzhokhar tsarnaev. they think the two were acting alone. that's a crucial, crucial supposition. investigators are examining the fragments of the bombs as well that were used in last monday's attack. they say all the parts apparently come from the boston area, but they also had guns too. >> we turn our attention to china now and two days after a powerful earthquake hit southwestern china, the death toll is climbing and the red cross has issued a dire warning. chinese media says that 186 people are dead and up to 11,000 are injured in sichuan province. the hilly terrain is also slowing rescue efforts. the city of yan where the epicenter was will run out of
11:43 pm

11:44 pm
to demission the project and whether tepco is capable of doing it on its own, they said it was a very enormous task and this is why we're here to assist tepco in any way we can and that it will take at least 40 years. this is such an enormous task, there's nuclear debris in four nuclear reactors. it's too radioactive for humans to get there. just think of the work as you go there, working for very little periods of time in these very dangerous highly radioactive areas. so it is really is a mammoth undertaking to try and make this place safe. i'm about 30 kilometers away from fukushima daichi, you can see the wreckage of boats here still here after the tsunami, trashed when the tsunami came in. the nuclear disaster that has

welcome back. it's 11 mings before the hour. u.s. authorities looking into whether dzhokhar tsarnaev and
11:50 pm
his brother tamerlan acted alone in the boston bombings. dzhokhar's older brother tamerlan had become increasingly radicalized in the past few years, authorities are looking for any connections with jihadist groups. another story affecting many people today. a major strike at uft than za. it is a start of a critical week of diplomacy between the united states, china and north korea. but already, pyongyang is refusing to pudrefuse ing to budge on a major point of contention, a nuclear arsenal.
11:51 pm
does anyone expect this week of diplomacy will yield a break through in this tense standoff? >> they're going to give it their best try, there's no doubt about that. they realize what's at stake here, things have changed on the korean peninsula, the nuclear threat being held up by north korea is a real one. now you've got some of the chief negotiators are in play here, you've got glen davies, the troubleshooter for china is in washington right now for talks with davies. you've also got the foreign minister of south korea traveling to beijing this week for more talks. in all of this, what to do about north korea is what is on the table. north korea's response to the call for diplomacy has been bluster at best. the world recognizes its nuclear
11:52 pm
and ballistic missile programs as its right in exchange for even sitting down to talk. in the west, kim jong-un's weeks long propaganda outburst will cause china to make a fundamental shift in its support for pyongyang. that may be answered in a series of meetings in china and washington this week. >> if any country in the world has some leverage in dealing with north korea it's china. >> reporter: beijing's efforts will be its own. it's about what china wants, economic stability in north asia and a nonnuclear north korea on its doorstep. beijing does not like the pressure and thinks the chinese could do more. >> in fact the chinese regularly tell me, if obama would just pick up the phone and talk to kim jong-un, we could solve this whole thing. >> all parties know north korea is vulnerable. it desperately needs a good
11:53 pm
harvest to feed its 25 million people including millions who may be on the brink of starvation, that's why beijing won't ratchet up the pressure. >> the chinese don't want to cause a regime collapse. that's their number one nightmare especially. >> everybody wants to see some bold diplomacy, but they want to see the other guy do it, that's what's happening right now. at the same time, north korea's being fairly quiet right now, although there were reports in the society korean media today that it has moved some short range missiles to the east coast. if these talks break down, north korea wants to be in a position to prove that there's going to be more than just some finger pointing. >> we state stephanie in your report that beijing wants president obama just to pick up
11:54 pm
