11:01 pm
outsiders. hello. i'm natalie allen. and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. an important announcement from david cameron, britain's prime minister is expected hours from now to reveal new details about the u.k.'s anti-terror response. the measures could include a temporary travel ban on british-born jihadists to prevent them from returning home. joining me now is aaron mcla-- mclaughlin. >> reporter: prime minister david cameron on friday said that there are gaps in the british armory when it comes to dealing with extremism that needs to be strengthened. so today we expect to hear how he plans on doing that. now he's already said he wants to introduce new legislation that would allow the government to more easily seize passports from some of these extremists.
11:02 pm
it's believed around 500 british jihadis currently are in syria. the exact number, though, is not know. 250 are believed to have already returned to the united kingdom and they've only seized some 23 passports. this is a problem we expect the prime minister to address today. also security analysts say they expect him to look into terrorist prevention and investigation measures. a series of restrictions on individuals linked to terrorism activity but not able to charge or deport. but there is talk about the government reintroducing something called the exile powers allowing them to re-locate these individuals to areas outside of london. but all of this subject to intense debate over the weekend. talks that continue into this morning, liberal democrats,
11:03 pm
coalition parties voicing concerns about you how these policies may impact people's civil lick irrelevants here in the united kingdom. >> some have suggested these are a lot of politics perhaps. what are people saying? how are typical londoners reacting to this heightened threat level there? >> reporter: i think people are concerned. anytime a government, you hear from government officials that a terrorism attack is highly likely, i think people are alarmed. and it's that concern that had some members of the junior coalition, liberal democrats worried that the government, some government officials are using this kind of rhetoric to instill fear in the population in order to promote, to support some of these measures, some of these restrictive measures that are being introduced. the terror threat level is actually set by intelligence agencies meant to be independent of the ministries. and some members of the coalition saying the government needs to protect people's civil
11:04 pm
liberties fiercely and not simply be cheerleaders for the intelligence services. but it is criticism that has pretty much been rejected by members of the government. the minister, the defense minister over the weekend saying that this is a very real threat that the government's trying to deal with, natalie? >> all right. erin mclaughlin on a very busy rush hour morning in london. and we plan to bring you live coverage of the address to the house of come ons at 3:30 in the afternoon london time. iraqi ground forces, supported by u.s. air strikes broke the isis siege on the town.
11:05 pm
aid was dropped to the residents. we go live to the iraqi city of erbil. >> reporter: finally an isis defeat. the iraqi military was there, but also the shiite militia, the same militia who are fighting u.s. soldiers during the long occupation of iraq. the same militia, mind you, who are backed by iran. so an interesting union there. certainly u.s. air strikes happening saturday night, allowing for those ground forces to push through and fight back the isis militants who had surrounded the township of aimerly. it's made up of50,000 shiite turkman. population considered to be
11:06 pm
infide infidels. this was a threat that this population was facing. we know that the militants, they cut off the water. they cut off the power, from z residents on the ground, they were telling us of severe shortages of food and medical supplies. finally relief, relief that they have been saved, that the international community has come to their aid. many are asking why it has taken so long, but crisis averted. >> they have been at the precipice of disaster and saved. perhaps this will lead to a weakening of isis or perhaps demoralized fighters. we don't know about that. but are there other towns right now that face a direct threat from isis? >> isis is under control of many towns, villages and cities, as we know.
11:07 pm
they have major strongholds here in iraq. mosul, which is not far from where we are, the city of tikrit, and fallujah, a major stronghold for isis. it's one thing to push them out of the townships and villages which are remote, wide-open spaces. these plains where u.s. air strikes can really target these people out in the open and these vehicles and convoys and enemy positions. it's another thing, a whole different ball game when we take the fight inside these major, major cities. densely populated, you know, mosul, for example, 1.5 million people. and these also sunni arabs, natalie. these iraqis who have not necessarily embraced isis but have allowed isis to come into their towns, their cities. thinking, perhaps, that this would be a better alternative to
11:08 pm
the maliki led shiite government, but this is where the political solution will have to come into play. the iraqi prime minister designate abadi, now trying to form a government so that sunnis do feel that they are part of this country. because at the end of the day, we can throw air power at this. united states can use as many air strikes as they want, but that is not going to defeat isis. it's going to have to come within iraq. the sunni arabs are going to have to realize that isis provides no future. >> time is certainly running out for that government to come together as well and push forward for a united front there in iraq. israel has announced plans to claim h400 hectares of land.
11:09 pm
an israeli group opposing west bank settlement says this could be the largest appropriation of land in decades. the u.s. is urging israel to reverse its decision. in hong kong, protesters are denouncing election rules. all hong kong voters will be able to cast a ballot. but the candidates must first be approve bade beijing-backed election committee. that of course is what people don't hike. there's much more to come here on cnn. some say there's an outright russian invasion in ukraine and it's time to help supply ukraine's military with weapons. and two weeks of growing protests take a toll in pakistan. we'll have a live report on what's going on from islamabad.
11:10 pm

11:11 pm
11:12 pm
welcome back. a prominent u.s. lawmaker is calling for the u.s. and its allies to send arms to ukrainian forces whom he says are fighting russian troops in the east. moscow continues to deny it has any troops there. but the head of the u.s. senate foreign relations committee is visiting ukraine, and he says that nation should be able to defend itself. >> it's at a point where a, russia has come, invaded with thousands of troops, with missiles, with tanks. this is no longer the question of some rebel separatists. this is a direct invasion by russia. and we must recognize it. when i read some of the headlines back at home that
11:13 pm
suggest rebels are advancing in certain parts of ukraine, it's not rebels, it's russian soldiers. >> they say they had russian forces on the brink of collapse until troops came in and propped up the rebels. diana magnay is in one town in the southeast where even civilians are trying to hold back the rebels' advance. >> reporter: this feels like an exercise in futility. citizens of mariupol digs trenches as the rebels take hume swaths of country further north. ukrainian troops have been surrounded for the last few days. these men have been taken prisoner. they came to rescue our people who were surrounded says this ukrainian soldier. we lost. it's amazing we survived. was it worth it, the rebel
11:14 pm
soldier asks, quietly, he responds, no. we come across a burned out tank. close by, a group of ukrainian medical personnel. they don't want to give interviews. they hook incredibly demoralized. they brought out 70 dead soldiers on saturday and are waiting to see if they can take out more. but this is what you look like when you stare death in the facfac face. there is a sniper position and a ukrainian military truck on the other side. the land behind me appears to be the front line. further on, a ukrainian jet flies overhead and bombs targets. the first we've seen of ukraine's depleted air force in
11:15 pm
action. >> translator: it was ukrainian fire, this old man says. his roof was smashed by the shrapnel. >> translator: i'm pure ukrainian, he says, but you don't need to lie to your own people. the ukrainians came like peacemakers, and then they kill us. they're destroying the whole region. >> reporter: then a rebel officer drives up and asks us to stop filming. >> please move your camera. >> reporter: we were told we didn't have the right filming permits which is difficult when the front lines move this fast. but after a few words, we were released. our escorts were courteous, if persistent throughout. their advice not to leave the city of donetsk, to avoid the front lines at night. diana magnay, cnn, donetsk, ukraine. >> so diana reporting on what's going on on the ground.
11:16 pm
and vladimir putin is calling for direct talks on statehood for eastern ukraine. matthew chance is covering this for us from our moscow bureau, and certainly more provocative language from vladimir putin, it seems. >> reporter: yeah. it can be exhibit printerpreted. mr. putin says it needs to be discussed to ensure the interests of local people. not to say that russia cannot fantasize of people being shot at near point blank range. it's a humanitarian concern the president has. so that sparked concerns, the possibility that these areas become a separate state. and afterwards, putin's
11:17 pm
spokesman later clarified, saying that the issue of statehood, the word statehood, should not be taken to mean an actual separate state that's being treated now by the russian government and that the ukrainian crisis is a domestic one. so the spokesman of vladimir putin seeking to reassure the international community that russia was not now looking for an independent pro-russian state in eastern and southern ukraine. >> well, certainly, he keeps pushing all the while. and now european leaders are hinting more sanctions are coming. are ordinary russians feeling any kind of pinch, matthew, from the sanctions that have occurred already? >> reporter: i think the russian economy has been damaged by the sanctions that have been imposed so far. a few days ago, last week, the russian ruble, the currency here
11:18 pm
hit an all time low against the u.s. dollar, making things much more expensive for ordinary russians. a ban of the import of some foodstuffs from the european union and the united states and other countries that are imposing sanctions against russia. that impacts supermarkets, not having so many products on the shelves. prices of foodstuffs are increasing. the problem is that russians do not appear to be blaming vladimir putin for this. they're blaming the economic problems on the sanctions that they're blaming on the west. so vladimir putin's popularity is extremely high. they said that even though his popularity diminished over august, it's still 85.5%. that's an extremely high
11:19 pm
approval rating for vladimir putin. >> that's really interesting. all the while, he takes steps to continue to isolate russia, perhaps, and erode the warm relations that have been built up over the decades. so it will be interesting to see if they continue to support him if this pushes on. thank you so much, matthew chance for us on the phone from moscow. well, protesters in pakistan demand the prime minister step down. and they're willing to face tear gas to make their point clear. we'll get an update from islamabad, a live report in just a moment.

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm natalie allen at cnn center. let's check the top stories for you at this hour. an american lawmaker is calling for the u.s. and its allies to send arms to ukrainian forces whom he says are fighting russian forces in the east. the head of the senate foreign relations committee says it is a russian invasion. moscow denies it has any troops in eastern ukraine. a humanitarian crisis has apparently been averted in a northern iraqi town. iraqi forces have broken the isis siege of amerli that started in june. but elsewhere, reuters reports a suicide bomber killed 37 people in ramadi. so far no claim of
11:28 pm
responsibility. an important announcement from david cameron, britain's prime minister is expected to reveal new details about the u.k.'s anti-terror response. the new measures could include a travel ban on british born jihadists to prevent them from returning home. now we turn to pakistan. demonstrators are calling for the country's prime minister to step down. our reporter is in islamabad, what is the trouble, what is the concern they have with the new leader? >> caller: well, what they want, they want to see the prime minister step down. they're claiming that he is behind the election rigging of the general election. let me tell you exactly where i am. i'm standing between protesters
11:29 pm
and a wall of police. there's a standoff between them. the sides of the main constitution avenue. about an hour ago from the main group of protesters that have been outside the parliament over the last few days. they split-off and came running, charging towards police. they come, i stay arms. their arms are sticks. they have catapults. they use rocks and marbles. as i'm talking to you, they are laying down on the ground, playing dead. a lot of them have chains in their hands and handcuffs. they're talking about how the prime minister needs to be taken away in handcuffs. from what i can see, the only thing, there's a smaller number, about 150 of them, but the only thing that seems to be stopping them right now is a military patrol, there's about 600 or 700
11:30 pm
soldiers that keep going around, being highly visible, to let them know they're there on stand by. the military were called in to protect state property, state institutions. i'm right now in the red zone in the heart of the capital, islamabad. there are police here. they're in full riot gear. they've got about 200 meters between the protesters and police right now. we haven't seen the type of protests last night which saw tear gas. they were fired directly at, from what we could see, into the edge. at least 400 people injured in those clashes and three killed, natalie? >> what's the prime minister doing to try to diffuse this situation in the streets, because this is a fragile democracy in pakistan. the military has stepped in
11:31 pm
before during political upheaval, and certainly, no one wants to see that happen. >> caller: yeah. this is a fragile democracy. we've only just seen in pakistan in prior history the transition from one democratic government to another. but the protesters claim this isn't a democratic government because they came into government through a rigged election. we can't, we haven't seen much public response from him, we haven't seen any public appearances from him, but we have had a number of statements from the prime minister. for the government to step down in its entirety is out of the question. he has in his latest statement also called for negotiations. now he wants negotiations between leaders of these two groups protesting. one is based on a politician and the other is a cleric.
11:32 pm
both of them leading their protests simultaneously to put pressure, a two-column approach attack, if you like. but nasry is refusing to go. >> hopefully they won't get any more violent. thank you for bringing us the latest from the capital, islamabad. now we want to return to the story coming out of britain. the country's prime minister is expected to release details about the country's anti-terrorism measures later today. they want to prevent the british-born jihadis from returning home. but it is getting a makesed response. >> we are in the middle of a generational struggle between an extremist ideology. >> reporter: the cry to fight
11:33 pm
radical islam. a few miles away, one of london's most prominent neighborhoods, a melting pot of color and creed, including muslims. hardscrabble catholic nun christine frost has been waging her own generational struggle for 45 years. lining up fun days like this to help everyone get along. >> a little bit of wisdom that if i have a cup of day with you or i got to know you a little bit, then it's going to harder for me to be cruel to you. >> reporter: she says it's the extreme gap between rich and poor. here in the east end, decrepit social housing sits in the shadow of one of the world's premiere financial districts. >> we were told there would be trickle down. now it's 20, 30 years, and the
11:34 pm
trickle is awfully slow. >> reporter: they have failed to root out islamic extremism for fearing being racist. but at a bingo game, people speak frankly, unbound by political correctness. >> they come over here. >> i think it's wrong when they talk in their own language. it makes you feel as if you're an outcast. >> reporter: they're unsettled by unfamiliar customs. >> not to be covered. andon't agree with that. but what can you do? >> reporter: close buy, time to pray. worshippers seem concerned all muslims may be unfairly targeted in the hunt for british jihadis. >> people are scared of what they don't know moist of the time. so they don't -- it's hike in movies, when alien invasion, the first thing people think about is attacking them.
11:35 pm
that's the same thing people think of us. >> reporter: some seem fueled by american support for the war on terror. >> if someone's going abroad, whether it's british army or extremism and killing somebody, they've got blood on their hands. >> reporter: but even as warnings of a home-grown terror plot now risk setting neighbors against each other some hold out hope that differences of color and religion are no obstacle to sharing common ground. >> it's not about rules and regulation and all of that nonsense. it's about living together, caring about each other. >> kindness and patience and acceptance. that, that's what's been a key for the community together. >> reporter: cnn, london. >> and, again, david cameron giving details in just a few hours about the steps he will take for security. in the southeastern
11:36 pm
ukrainian city of mariupol three are building trenches and checkpoints and are preparing for what they believe is an imminent attack by pro-russian forces. meanwhile, representatives from all sides are supposed to meet in belarus today. we're monitoring all the different situations which are quite complex there in eastern ukraine. what are you hearing about mariupol? >> reporter: here's what's not complex. there's mounting evidence here in southeastern ukraine that pro-russian rebels are quickly gaining momentum, and there's evidence that pro-ukrainian troops are loosing momentum. the next piece of territory they could be targeting is the critical city of mariupol. this is a port city that sits right along the coast in the sea
11:37 pm
of azor. at this hour, what you have to the east of mariupol is pro-russian rebels stationed there, bearing down, seemingly ready, poised for an attack on mariupol. just on the outskirts of mariupol you have ukrainian troops, digging trenches, bolstering their defenses. they are extremely concerned and scared over the past 48 hours. many residents have left and others have hunkered down. at this hour, the pro-russian rebels have not decided to make a move to mariupol, but if they do and if they succeed in taking mariupol the next region will be the russian annexed territory, the crimean preninsula. if they get there, that will mean they've established a land bridge. and if you go up from this
11:38 pm
region, in the donetsk region, the luhansk region, you're sighing rebels pushing down to this area, taking more territory. in the meantime, ukrainian troops continuing to retreat. overnight, 68 soldiers retreated. our cnn crews have observed the troops retreating as well, dejected and defeated. so unless something changes, momentum shifting in favor of the rebels. >> it certainly has, and so quickly when it seems that russia has given some assistance. of course russia continues to deny it has any troops there in ukraine. thank you. so what is vladimir putin's end game there in ukraine. andy hunter joins us now. thank you for being with us. you've said mr. putin is aiming for a so-called frozen conflict. what is a frozen conflict mean, and what does vladimir putin
11:39 pm
gain with that? >> well, what we have seen over the last days is clearly now that ukraine is under attack from russian troops, and there are russian soldiers on ukrainian soil. the invasion has been taking place over the last couple of months, and this has been a hybrid war, a war where we've seen russians funded troops in ukraine. we've seen, now, russian troops crossing the border. we've seen an information war and an economic war against ukraine. what is putin's end game? putin wants to create as much, he wants to destabilize the region, ukraine, as much as possible. he cannot accept that this country is moving towards europe, is moving towards european values, and he does not want to allow this, because this will have massive implications for him back home in russia. he's run a corrupt regime for many, many years. the russian economy is in serious decline. and now he wants to shift the
11:40 pm
focus from his problems back at home onto a more international level and to focus on this so-called war in ukraine. so i think it's very, very important that the west really understands that. and it's now, as the u.s. senators have been saying, it's time for the u.s. and the united king dom to really act and intervine. >> how should think intervene in we have a prominent lawmaker saying there should be some military assistance when all the other leaders have been saying this must have a non-militaryistic outcome. >> i think we need to understand, this is an issue now with global security. why? 20 years ago, ukraine became independent. and when it became independent, it had the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world. it has a nuclear arsenal bigger than china, france, and the
11:41 pm
united kingdom combined. and they got assurances from the united states, and russia that its integrity would be preserved. and this was signed by the president of russia. and now when russia has violated the sovereignty of an independent state of independent ukraine, now assurances must be given to them. otherwise the whole issue of kbroebl security and nuclear proliferation has been thrown out the window. this is of massive impact now in terms of global security. so the u.s. and u.k. should really sit down, and there are meetings, the nato summit taking place in the u.k. on wednesday. and i think these issues must be addressed, and these assurances that were given to ukraine for
11:42 pm
giving up its military arsenal must be addressed and acted upon. >> we'll wait and see how the west responds. thank you. >> thank you. well, ten years ago, hundreds of students, parents and teachers gathered to celebrate a new school year. what happened next still has this russian town wracked with grief. we will revisit beslan in a moment. lp. excedrin migraine starts to relieve my pain in 30 minutes. plus, sensitivity to light and sound, even nausea. excedrin migraine works. stuart! stuart!

welcome back. it appears libyan militia members decided to hold a little pool party at the u.s. embassy in tripoli. youtube video shows fully-clothed men swimming at the pool in the abandoned compound. the u.s. ambassador to libya says the compound was not ransacked. u.s. ambassadors evacuated last month during heavy violence. having a good time in the pool. well, the first day of school is traditionally a fun time. but ten years ago an ordeal left many people dead, half of them school children. we went back to beslan and found a community still aching with grief. >> reporter: the pain and anguish of beslan is entombed
11:46 pm
here, frozen in time. 331 hostages shot dead or blown apart, about half of them children. in the most grotesque and brutal events i hope i ever witness. militants herred 1200 children and parents into the gym on the first day of term, strung explosives from the basketball hoops, with women ready to detonate them. two days in, they did. and russian special forces moved in. ten years after, the gym has only changed to accommodate the mourning of an entire village. this man was six when i last saw him. his memory is full of holes that spare him. the first explosion was over there? >> translator: i don't really remember much. my aunt and my mom tried to cover my up. then everyone started to run, but the terrorists tried to stop us. we thought it was the end. >> reporter: his mother and
11:47 pm
father dead, he hid in a connecting room and says strangely, a militant gave him food and water before he was rescued. each room still pockmarked. the chaos was such that we as journalists could come into the yard during the siej and look up into this corridor and see intense gunfights between russian special forces and the militants, and they remind you not only of their bravery but also the limits of putin's power in southern russia and how at the time so many here in beslan just felt abandoned by moscow. among those mothers who grouped together to demand answers over how such a bungled, bloody siege was possible is margarita who voices an opinion common in a state where authority is feared rather than trusted. that the military, not the militants, fired the first shots, because they didn't want to negotiate. >> translator: they started it
11:48 pm
because they could not get out of the situation in any other way. they didn't want to negotiate. without putin's order, that couldn't have happened. >> reporter: a decade of no answers. she lost two daughters that day and has done little to manage her grief. >> translator: time doesn't heal. i see the haircut my daughter had there, and now i can't even imagine what she would have looked like today. >> reporter: cnn, beslan. that's 150 years of experience in perfecting the rich, never bitter taste of gevalia. and we do it for this very experience. this very second. this exact moment. that's good. i know right? cheers to that. gevalia. 150 years of rich, never bitter coffee.

south korea's defense ministry says north korea has fired a short-range projectile into the east sea off the eastern coast of the peninsula. north korea often fires missiles and rockets, but the frequency with which the country is doing that is unusual. and it is certainly rare when western journalists are invited into north korea, but will ripley has been there to cover a pro wrestling festival over the weekend. and inside this secretive
