10:00 am
of a 911 call. which will the jury believe? we'll have an update on the case and they're watching and waiting in the u.k. a royal baby is due at any day now. we'll have the latest on what the press is doing to prepare. this is cnn breaking news. and this just in. after a couple of days after the ousting of the democratically elected president in egypt, now, the opposition leader has been summoned to the presidential palace for talks. he is expected to be appointed as the country's next interim prime minister. of course, we get more information on that, we'll bring that to you. >> now, three countries have now extended offers of asylum to edward snowden, the man nsa leaks. bolivia just added its name to the list today. the country's president called it fair and the country's
10:01 am
restricted his flight this week out of concern he was on board. yesterday, nicaragua said they would over asylum and venezuela gave snowden the okay. >> fredricka, the president of venezuela has said that he would be willing to take edward snowden in. of course, the government of venezuela is very antagonistic. they from the beginning have been sympathetic to edward snowden, so in a speech late last night, he told supporters that he would be willing to allow edward snowden to come to venezuela and to give him asylum. >> translator: i announced to the governments of the friendly nations in the world that we have decideded to offer the international humanitarian right to asylum to protect this young edward snowden from the persecution that has been unleashed from the most powerful imperialist in the world against the young man who only spoke the truth.
10:02 am
>> now, venezuela is one of the only countries will be to give him asylum. it looks as though there might be some light at the end of the tunnel to this whole saga. another country that's come out and said they might be willing to let him in is nicaragua. otherwise though, most countries that he's applied to have already said they're not going to let him in on technical grounds or merits. the big question is now lodgistics. what can that happen? that's still up in the air and how. is he going to take a commercial flight possibly here from russia to cuba and then to venezuela? the next flight would leave sometime around noon tomorrow local time. so we'll wait and see whether or not he's going to be on that flight, whether or not he's going to have the necessary travel documents. certainly, the russians will be happy to hear this, they have
10:03 am
been getting more antsy by the day. it seems as though they're uncomfortable with snowden's presence here. one of the things that is a big problem for putin at this time is that he can't hand him over to the u.s. because that would cause humiliation here in russia, but also, he can't really let this drag on for a long time and risk threatening the relationship that he has with the obama administration. so, the russians will be happy to see this come to an end, but we're still not sure how long it's going to take. >> all right, thank you so much. okay, now, on to egypt. we just reported a moment ago that now, we understand according to reuters reporting that the opposition leader there in egypt has been summoned to the presidential palace and that the interim president wants to lead some talks with him and apparently, he may be pinted the
10:04 am
interim prime minister of the country of egypt. all of this taking place just days after the ousting of mohammed morsi. carl is in cairo. we've seen for the past few days masses of people. those supporting morsi and those supporting -- >> reporter: outside the headquarters of the republican guard building. wire here separating the military on one side. the significance of that building is that is where we believe the deposed president morsi is still being held under arrest. if you lock across here, then what you can see are thousands, possibly even tens of thousands of supporters of the deposed president. they have marched from one of the mosques that is a stronghold
10:05 am
of the muslim brother hood and with them, they've brought four coffins. they are empty because this has been a symbolic funeral to mark the scores of deaths that there have been overnight last night for example, even where we are now, yesterday, the muslim brotherhood say five of their members were gunned down here. the military say they didn't use live fire. the health minister has given us an idea that at least one person was killed here. but right now as night begins to fall, tension is beginning to mount. they have given the military one hour. they say if the military in one hour does not hand over the deposed president, this crowd of thousands, they say, will plan to go in. now, of course, it's very difficult to see how in fact they will go in here. we have seen no visible evidence of weapons and on this side, if
10:06 am
you peer through the barbed wire, you can see the military here. some are armed with ak 47s, some with riot shields and long sticks. behind them, armored carriers with machine guns mounted on top and some of the buildings that make up the republican guard compound, we can see men on rooftops there. it is going to be very difficult to see how all this is going to pan out. if the supporters of morsi make good on their promise to storm their barricades and go into the republican guard buildings. that, if it happens, will happen, the deadline they have issued will expire now in a matter of minutes. >> my goodness, thanks so much. painting a picture of the tension there building up as the large crowd builds up. the military rule headquarters. all this taking place on the heels of what cnn now can confirm, that there is an appointment of an interim prime
10:07 am
minister. when we get more information about the structure of this new interim government, we'll be able to bring that to you live and watch the situation there as it continues to boil. there in cairo and beyond. mean tile, the political uncertainty in egypt has put the obama administration in a very difficult position. should the u.s. cut aid to egypt or not? republican senator john mccain says yes. >> we cannot repeat the same mistakes that we made at other times in our history by supporting the removal of freely elected governments. so i believe that the aid has to be suspended. that the egyptian military has to set a timetable for elections and new constitution and then we
10:08 am
should evaluate whether to continue the aid or not. >> we're talking aid in the amount of a billion and a half u.s. dollars. egypt has been a close ally of the u.s. and it's one of only two arab countries that has a peace deal with israel, but as we report, things are tenuous with egypt and israel and israel has said little about the recent uprising next door. >> with the removal of president morsi, world leaders ranging from u.s. president barack obama to saudi's king abdullah, have all weighed in on the developments, but one regional power has remained silent. israel. so far, there's been no statement from tel aviv, but an analyst with the israel project says israeli officials believe egypt's future should be decided by its people without regional influence.
10:09 am
>> israel, first of all, needs to be in sync with the united states and be sure of this very important point, but it has to stay out of it. this is an internal egyptian issue and we should let egyptian decide their own future. >> she says privately, many officials are encouraged that officials have protested the policies. moves that were seen as an attempt to fashion egypt into an islamic state from a secular one. myers says at the end of the day, no matter how events play out in egypt, there's one concern that matters most in israel. it's security. >> this is i think what official israel is interested in. security, mostly and fighting terror. >> but on the streets of jerusalem, the mood is cautiously optimistic. >> on the one side, i think it's a great thing that they're coming out to the streets and it's been a big revolution this
10:10 am
past year where people can say their opinions out loud and especially in these countries, where usually you can't see that very much. >> and while israel may not be talking officially, from the look of things, egyptians will continue to voice their opinions out loud. on the streets of cairo and across the country. >> we're also following developments in cairo. take a look at what happened when he was filing a live report near tahrir square. >> i'm told we're -- >> what are you -- >> i think we're having some problems here. they're trying to take away our camera. >> the soldiers did eventually take ben's crews camera away. ben says that later, it was returned, but without the video footage. again, that was live television that you're seeing right here. all of that happening while we were live on cnn.
10:11 am
back in this country, the murder trial of george simmer man is in recess for the weekend, but emotions ran high on friday as the mothers of both george zimmerman and trayvon martin testified. jean casarez joining us with a closer look. the jury is sequestered, but they have a lot to ponder about, something like 38 witnesses while the prosecution was laying out its case and now, the defense isn't it expected the defense will have many witnesses to call beyond george zimmerman's mother and uncle? >> i think they will. they're going to have a forensic pathologist out of san antonio, vincent demayo. benjamin krump, the family attorney for the martin family could be called, but yesterday, i don't think you will ever have a day like this. in a trial, in a court of law
10:12 am
for a long time because this all female jury, five oufr six of them are mother, listened to the testimony of mothers on both sides to say that it was their son that was crying out for help and there is a chance that these mothers could cancel each other out. they both think it is their own child. there is witness testimony, especially john good, who was an eyewitness, who said i know that the person on the bottom who he described as george zimmerman, was calling out help, help, and he said the voice was coming to me instead of it being the person on the top where the person would be going away toward the wall and then bouncing back to me. then you had multiple witnesses that said they were hearing cries for help and then one minute after -- he said i was crying out for help and nobody came to help me. you've got his recreation the next day where he says i kept crying out for help, but then on the other side, when that gun
10:13 am
shot went off, you didn't hear one more cry for help, not one, but yet george zimmerman said in his statement, i didn't i got him. i didn't think i shot him, so the jury might be thinking why wouldn't you keep crying out for help if you didn't think you had shot this person? >> wow. those are powerful things to think about and you know, these jurors, the evidence including eyewitness accounts, that's very minim minimal, so it really is up to the jurors to kind of fill the hole, isn't it? to try and piece things together. this case is not being laid out like so many other criminal cases where you know, there is a very clear cut story line. this one doesn't have that, does it? >> you've got eyewitnesses to a point. you've got earwitnesses because it was so dark out there. people just couldn't see. that's something the jury has to consider, too, the darkness of the night and in regard to
10:14 am
trayvon martin and george zimmerman, that darkness can have an impact, so there's so much testimony for them to consider and now, they're going into the defense case. but remember, the prosecution has to show as one of the elements of second degree murder that george zimmerman had hatred, ill will, spite, evil intent against trayvon martin as a person, so the jury has to be thinking about the words of george zimmerman, was that evil intent? there's a very challenging issue there. >> lots of stuff to think about there. thanks so much for putting it all together for us. after the trial resumes monday, you can get a recap of the key moments from anderson cooper. that's monday night, 10 which can p.m. eastern here on cnn. six years ago, madeleine mccann vanished while on vacation with her parents. find out why police say she may
10:15 am
still be alive. and the mothers testifying in the zimmerman trial. what is next in this controversial case? wi drive a ford fusion. who is healthier, you or your car? i would say my car. probably the car. cause as you get older you start breaking down. i love my car. i want to take care of it. i have a bad wheel - i must say. my car is running quite well. keep your car healthy with the works. $29.95 or less after $10 mail-in rebate at your participating ford dealer. so you gotta take care of yourself? yes you do. you gotta take care of your baby? oh yeah!
10:16 am
see, i knew testosterone could affect sex drive, but not energy or even my mood. that's when i talked with my doctor. he gave me some blood tests... showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% testosterone gel. the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breast-feeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood clots in the legs.
10:17 am
tell your doctor about your medical conditions and medications, especially insulin, corticosteroids, or medicines to decrease blood clotting. in a clinical study, over0% of treated men had their t levels restored to normal. talk to your doctor about all your symptoms. get the blood tests. change your number. turn it up. androgel 1.62%.
10:18 am
i never thought there was a proper case against george zimmerm zimmerman, so they're putting on their case as prosecutors do. that's their job. my job is to defend george and then the jury's job is to decide who did better, whether or not the state proved their case. we'll get there. >> in the george zimmerman murder trial, they have wrapped the case. the jury must decide if zimmerman is guilty of murdering 17-year-old trayvon martin or if he was acting in self-defense. the prosecution put trayvon mart martin's mother and brother on the stand. mark geragos is a criminal defense testimony.
10:19 am
listen to the testimony of the two mothers. this was a really riveting day of testimony from these two mothers. both had similar interpretation. the only difference is they've got different sons. listen. >> gun shots? >> yes. >> that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> who do you recognize that to be? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> were you able to hear that voice in the background? >> yes. >> you heard a woman's voice in the foreground, correct? >> yes. >> do you know whose voice that was screaming in the background? >> yes, sir.
10:20 am
>> whose voice was that? >> my son, george. >> and are you certain of that? >> because he's my son. >> so, this is tough because both mothers are very credible. both very graceful on the stand, so is this an issue of not only does the jury believe the mothers, but what does the jury hear when they hear that call? i think it's clear what is the jury here because and i thought it was a very smart move on the part of the defense. rather than let the prosecution kind of end on that emotional note, they countered immediately, you put up a mother, i'll put up a mother. it kind of washes the prosecution up on the jury. you'll hear i think about this again in the closing arguments and you're going to hear from the prosecution arguing a long way. >> so, if you're a juror and the
10:21 am
prosecution has rested, what's missing in your view? how the state is laying out second degree murder that ca carried out by george zimmerman. >> they've called witnesses, they've made i think a stronger case for zimmerman than they have for against simmer man, some of the people they've called, it's astonishing to me. it's almost as if they didn't know what they were going to say. >> so, it's unintentionally the case. as if the prosecution was even surprised by what people were delivering. >> by their own witnesses and i was going to say, the thing that's mind boggling is that in florida unlike almost any other jurisdiction, you get pretrial deposition, to they presumably have had hours with their witnesses and know what they're going to say.
10:22 am
they look at them as if wow, i didn't know that was coming. i said it almost tongue and cheek the other day. almost as if they want to throw the case. >> oh, my gosh. but certainly, they wouldn't, right? >> well, i just don't know. i mean, some of this after doing this for 30 year, some of what the prosecution has done in this case is inexplicable to me and it's too bad the public see this and think this is how a normal criminal trial takes place because this certainly is not how the average criminal trial unfolds in courtrooms. the. >> so, the flip side, if these are considered weaknesss by the prosecution, the defense is using it to its advantage. does it put the defense in a situation now where it doesn't need to call too many people? >> that's why the defense will rest this week. this will be argued to the jury this week. less is more for the defense.
10:23 am
they've been able to effectively tell their story and present their defense in the prosecution's case. and so, you back fill, they did exactly what they should have done by putting on mr. zimmerman's mother and then they'll probably call one or two other family members and then i would expect an expert, then i would expect they would rest. >> was it your expectation this would take much longer to carry out this trial? >> yeah, they had originally estimated at least two more weeks, but when the judge excluded the voice recognition experts, that was basically four expert witnesses, so you cut that out. that takes a week out of this and the fact that the lead detective ended up becoming such a good defense witness, the defense didn't need to put in four or five other witnesses. they were able to get, eliminate those witnesses by getting out all the stuff the detectives had
10:24 am
testified to. >> thanks so much. appreciate it. >> thank you. another case. and this one is really that of a missing persons case. it has captured the world's attention for many years. madeleine mccann. now, police say they have new leads in this case. a little girl who disappeared while the parents were on vacation. ♪ (annoucer) beneful medley's, in tuscan, romana, and mediterranean style varieties. ♪ just mix it in, and take play to new places. three cans in every pack. beneful medley's.
10:25 am
10:26 am
10:27 am
now to new developments in the case of the missing girl from britain. madeleine mccann. british police say they have identified more than three dozen people of interest. >> this is basically review of all the material collected by british police, portuguese police and private investigators and it's given them new leads. she was 3 years old when she disappeared from a resort in portugal six years ago. now, british police say they have new leads and are reopening the investigation, called operation grange. they want to question 38 people across europe including 12 british nationals who they believe were in portugal at the time. madeleine's parents have campaigned tirelessly to keep her in the public's memory. while still raising two other children. >> i don't want them to go through that emotion and i don't really want them to have the burden of this, of having to
10:28 am
keep looking and looking and looking and not being able to stop. so we need to find her now. >> british police say their help from private investigators has made a difference and after 16 visits to portugal and reviewing more than 30,000 document, police are hopeful. >> there is no clear definitive proof that madeleine mccann is dead, so on that basis, i still genuinely believe there is the possibility that she is alive. >> police are released this photo of what she may look like at 9 years of age. she has now turned 10. now, as they search for those 38 people they want to talk to, the focus will be on britain and portugal, but also a number of other european country, fred. >> thank you so much. and when we come back, we're going to take you back to cairo, egypt, for more on the unrest there and now, reports of not just a new interim president, but an interim prime minister as well.
10:29 am
10:30 am
10:31 am
more on the breaking news out of egypt. elbaradei has been named the interim prime minister.
10:32 am
he was summoned for talks and ran for president of egypt back in 2012. he is the former director general of the international atomic energy agency as you recall and he was awarded the nobel peace prize, which he shared with the iaea back in 2005. ben wedeman is live for us in cairo. tell us more about these threats of moresy supporters, because that is the place where the ousted president is believed to be, right? >> today, it's been quieter despite the fact there have been funerals taking place for supporters of the muslim brotherhood and others, so compared to yesterday, many few people on the street and fewer clashes, but by cairo standards,
10:33 am
the night is young. >> tell us about these reports. has he been sworn in yet or is that even relevant? >> well, he will be sworn in within the coming hour. he is well r regarded sper nationally. he was an international diplomat for decades, but here in egypt, he's unpopular with islamists, with some of the young revolutionaries. it's hard to say how much of a bridge builder he'll be able to be at this point in egypt right now needs that, somebody to build bridges. >> is it difficult to tell what side to have the most momentum? morsi supporters? is supporters of now mansur because if elbaredei ran for
10:34 am
president and didn't win in the democratically elected process, why would they embrace him as the prime minister now? >> that's a very good question, but in fact, really, it's not a question of supporters of morsi at this point and supporters of the opposition. really it's a question of support for the army and the army is a powerful institution in itself and they seem to have the upper hand in terms of sheer numbers an support. the brother hohood is smaller, very well organized. they have the ability to mobilize lots of people into the street where as the opposition really doesn't have any such mechanisms, but they have the army on their side. and really, that's the deciding factor. >> all right, thanks so much. keep us abreast of all that's taking place there in cairo now that it is sundown.
10:35 am
all right. nsa leaker edward snowden, well, he could have a few countries to choose from to seek asylum. this morning, bolivia said it would be willing to give snowden asylum. in addition to venezuela and nicaragua. nicaragua did add quote if circumstances permit, end quote. venezuela's president went on an angry tirade against the u.s. and said snowden is being persecuted for telling the truth. the world is awaiting the arifle of the newest member of the british royal family. the official due date still a week away, but that hasn't stopped reporters and well wishers from starting to dpather outside the hospital waiting for any sign that a baby has arrived. richard is a royal watcher and columnist. no surprise there would be so much fascination over this baby to be. for william and kate.
10:36 am
what is happening, to what extent in london are people greatly anticipating this moment? >> well, the anticipation factor is really palpable. there's nothing more joyous to the country than a royal wedding that we had two years ago and a royal baby and almost ten days before the scheduled delivery of this child, be it a boy or a girl, the places have been marked out by all the camera, waiting outside st. mary's hospital. the linder wing is the priva clinic there where both william and harry were born. so of the betting shops are making a killing out of this with people saying what the names are going to be of the child and whether it's going to be a boy or a girl and that's very important now because the law of -- which had been in place for centuries has now changed, so it won't be the first born male.
10:37 am
it will be the first born. so if that's a girl, she will be the future monoar ark after prince william. >> this is very exciting and historic. let's talk about the memorabilia that goes with anything royal. you know, you've got the diamond jubilee, the wedding, memorabilia. what kind of memorabilia goes with the baby to be? especially since publicly, dwoent know the sex. >> you've got these tankards made by shops by appointment to the royal family and quite frankly, there's a lot of what i call tect. tea towels and plastic key rings. souvenir hunters are very rapid and of course, they'll buy all this stuff. it's great for the economy, the country and william and kate are enormously popular, which is great for the royal family for the feature and this child of course when it comes out of the wing, diana brought william out in '82. just one day after giving birth and then the baby will be taken
10:38 am
to kensington palace. >> and where diana live, right? >> right an then the kristcrisc. there's this wonderful gown that dates back 150 years, so there's a lot of tradition here and of course, when they announce it, there will be an easel set up in the courtyard of buckingham palace are the royal announcement saying the child has been delivered and whoever it is, a boy or a girl, he'll be a prince or princess, maybe prince harry of cambridge and they say if it's a boy, they're looking towards edward, james, har harry. a girl, alexandria and
10:39 am
charlotte. >> oh, that's lovely. richard, if no one was excited before hearing you speak, they're very excited now. the anticipation is palpable. this is an exciting thing and you know, i can't wait to have you back so when we get that announcement, you can add even more color to the big occasion. >> go and place your bet now. >> we'll do that. privately. thanks so much. good to see you. let's talk weather. it is hot and stormy. all of that and is there any end in sight? we'll check the forecast, plus, some big stars are hitting the stage tonight to help storm victims who need it most. we'll talk with country star toby keith. there, i said it.
10:40 am
see, i knew testosterone could affect sex drive, but not energy or even my mood. that's when i talked with my doctor. he gave me some blood tests... showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% testosterone gel. the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breast-feeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer,

10:42 am
storm, flood k, all of that. the summer has seen it fair share. karen mcginniss has been watching it for us. kind of shaping up to be a damp day, but you have kids playing out in the fountains there. that's cool. >> it is. it's very mild and muggy, but temperatures have been running a good 10 degrees below where they should be this time of year. let's take you back to may 20th. moore, oklahoma. 24 people killed by that ef 5
10:43 am
tornado and then last week, we were looking at the sering heat in the southwest. it has been an extraordinary summer so far. the saturday swelter son along the east coast. new york city, boston, philadelphia. all sizzling, making it feel like they're in triple digit conditions thanks to the high humidity. emergency officials in the big apple have now opened the city's many cooling stations with advisories now extending through the weekend. the big time heat didn't keep the crowds from flocking to the spectacular light shows this extended holiday weekend, but the blistering temperatures were just too much for some. 120 people received medical attention at boston's -- it's a very different picture across other parts of the nation. heavy rains and floods continue across much of the south, part of the florida panhandle received as much as 18 inches of
10:44 am
rain. there is also the high threat of rip currents with thousands heading to the beach this weekend. one north carolina man drowned off holden beach, the fourth drowning in the area this week and in the west, golf ball-sized hail pummelling parts of california and new mexico. a summer surprise for an area that normally seeing temperatures in the 90s. no doubt this season has seen its share of extreme weather from deadly tornados to massive wildfires, widespread heat and floods and especially severe summer impacting us all. and speaking of floods, in inlet beach, florida, this tuesday, they have collected in excess of 22 inches of rainfall. >> oh, my gosh. boy, that has been quite the wet summer thus far. thanks so much, karen. appreciate that. speaking of extreme weather today, really only about an hour
10:45 am
and a half from now, toby keith and other country music legended will hold a concert. others will be there and right after the tornado hit keith's hometown of moore, oklahoma this spring, he talked to anderson cooper. >> what's it like for you to have seen this place like this? >> ain't nothing i haven't seen before. grown up here my whole life. 35, 40 year, we've seen this a lot. gets you right here every time. >> i've seen a lot of them, too, but every time, it seems different. every time, it's -- never get used to it. >> it's a different path every time. this, we're about two miles south of where the last one, a mile and a half south of the big one in '99, but there was one the day before this one that no one talked about, but those people up there if you ask them,
10:46 am
theirs is just as devastating. just part of living in the plains. >> seems like everywhere we go, we see people trying to salvage whatever they can. possessions from their house. >> my sister, sister-in-law and niece all got hit and if your house looks something like that where you still got a structure left, get a shot of that, then you get most of your possessions back, insurance company fixes your house, if you have a storm shelter, which you should have, then you're rocking. it all comes back. >> we're on the foundation, this is a slab of someone's foundation. didn't have a basement. it seems a lot of people who don't live here are surprised to hear not everybody has storm shelters. >> if you go into the mabds, a lot of people that don't afford them will have them and they'll share. everybody knows where the closest shelter is, so if you ask somebody that survived it that got hit and had a shelter,
10:47 am
their neighbors were in there with them. >> i talked to a woman today in this hospital who was holding on to her 65-year-old husband, he got sucked out of her arms and died. she said i'm going rebuild the same polilace. i've got any neighbors. >> last night, i got here, went straight to my sister's house and got her boarded in, got her roof covered and i was standing there doing an interview, this lady goes, he's standing in front of my car. you're like, what? it's neat you're standing in front of my car. is this your house? yeah, i lived through it. she was happy, uplifting. she goes, what else you going to do, rebuild it? i'm going to rebuild right here, this is my home. that's the part that makes you go that's my neighbor. >> thank you. >> thanks for covering it. >> pleasure. >> if you want to help, go to cn there, you'll find more
