claims about the existence of an alleged video of the terrifying moments of flight 9525. plus, iran nuclear talks head into another day. we'll be examining the sticking points. details on nigeria's choice for president and historic election win. >> all that and a whole lot more. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm zain asher. >> great to have you with us. i'm john vause. this is cnn newsroom. we start this hour with the latest on the investigation into the crash of germanwings flight 9525 and french police denying
10:01 pm
reports that a cell phone video shows the flight's final moments. >> the german newspaper and french magazine say the video was found on a phone recovered from the crash site. police say cell phones have been found, but have not yet been analyzed. here's more. >> reporter: a shocking discovery. apparently from the crashed plane. cell phone video believed to be shot from the back of the aircraft, capturing the chaos and terror on board flight 9525 in the final seconds before it slammed into the alps. the german newspaper and french magazine "paris match" viewed the video found by an investigation on a memory card that survived the crash. the news organization say the images make it disturbingly clear that passengers knew what was about to happen. according to the accounts, screams are heard, with cries of "my god" in several languages. there's metallic banging more

than three times, which suggests may have been the captain trying to force his way back into the cockpit after being locked out. toward the end, there's said to be a heavy shake stronger than the others, apparently as part of the plane scrapes a mountain. the screams intensify, and then nothing. today, lufthansa is acknowledging for the first time that it knew the co-pilot andreas lubitz had a history of psychological problems before he deliberately crashed the jet. the parent company of germanwings releasing a statement saying lubitz informed their flight training pilot school in 2009 that he had a previous episode of severe depression. the airline says lubitz provided that information in the medical documents he submitted before resuming his flight training. after taking a break for several months. lufthansa revealed last week that lubitz was cleared to fly after that interruption. >> translator: he continued his training. he then also passed all medical
10:03 pm
tests, all flight examinations, and all checks. he was 100% set to fly without restrictions. >> that was our will ripley reporting from germany. talks in switzerland to reach a frame work deal on cushing iran's nuclear deal have been extended an extra day. the french foreign minister will return home at dawn to force iran's hand. hala gorani has more. >> reporter: negotiations are going through tonight, continuing discussions to come up with some sort of draft understanding. even though they have passed their self-imposed deadline of midnight, march 31. the big sticking points center around whether or not u.n. security council resolutions
10:04 pm
will be lifted all at once or quickly, or if it will be an incremental scaling back of the sanctions. the western powers would like some verifiable proof that iran is complying with any deal before lifting sanctions. iran would like them all taken back at the same time. other sticking points center around existing stockpiles. iran said over the weekend it is not in its plan to shift these existing stockpiles to russia. so what happens to those existing stockpiles? any kind of agreement now, though, would be a preliminary agreement that would form the basis of a more permanent deal at the end of the month of june. there is a lot of political capital invested here, the fact that participants are still talking mean there is is a will to come up with something. the question is, will they come
10:05 pm
up with an agreement? if so, will it be today? and if not, would that signify failure, generally speaking, for the p-5 plus one and iran and what would it mean for future talks. john? >> hala gorani, thank you. earlier, i spoke to an iranian analyst with the rand corporation, author of "iran after the bomb." he explains the importance of making progress, at least towards a frame work deal. >> iran had been reluctant to commit anything to paper. it might be an oral agreement. but i think both sides, especially the obama administration and the iranian government, need to demonstrate that they are making progress. there's a lot of pressure in washington, d.c. from congress which wants to pass new sanctions. iranians at home and the iranian government is also eager to see that there is some sort of progress in the negotiations, and that sanctions are lifted as
10:06 pm
president rohani has promised. >> let's assume something comes out of this in the next couple of hours. it's likely the iranians go home and say it's all great, the sanctions are coming off and our nuclear program is continuing as is. the americans go back to congress and say death to the iranian nuclear program and take these opposite positions. what impact does that have when they get back to the table to work out a real deal? >> both sides have to sell the deal at home. the u.s. negotiators have to show that they were tough and got a good deal. the iranian negotiators have to demonstrate they're protecting iran's self-declared rights to have a nuclear program. given these negotiations, we could have a win-win situation in which iran's program is really constrained, can't use it for nuclear weapons, and it sees
10:07 pm
some sanctions relief in the future. i don't think that's going to happen in the next three months. we have until the end of june for the final accord. again, the two sides have to demonstrate some sort of progress. that's what we're waiting for. >> we shall leave it there. thank you, sir. >> thank you. appreciate it. dozens of civilians among the casualties after a sixth day of saudi air strikes in yemen. a saudi source says air defense systems of the iranian backed houthis and supporters of the former president have been destroyed. >> the saudi foreign minister says the campaign will not end until president hadi's government is restored. the united nations says the 62 children are among nearly 200 people who have been killed so far. john? a prosecutor held hostage in istanbul has died after being shot during a standoff. [ gunfire ] >> the gunman who took him
10:08 pm
captive were killed during a shootout with police. the turkish president called the suspects terrorists. time after gunfire was heard from inside, security forces stormed the room and according to the information provided by the police chief, two terrorists were killed. our prosecutor was shot three times in the head and twice in the body. >> the prosecutor had been working on the case of a 15-year-old boy who died from injuries suffered during anti-government protests in 2013. we're going to take a quick break here on cnn. when we come back, with criticism pouring in from around the united states, indiana's governor makes a move. >> it's been a tough week here in the hoosier state. but we're going move forward. the controversial law is far from over. those details ahead. also, the promise of an unprecedented transfer of power

10:12 pm
the political debate shows no sign of ending soon. [ applause ] >> reporter: anger growing across indiana in bloomington, hundreds of protesters keeping up the pressure against the religious freedom act. >> it's been a tough week here in the hoosier state. but we're going to move forward. >> reporter: in a stunning change of position, indiana's republican governor says despite the bill not inviting discrimination, he still wants a fix. >> i've come to the conclusion it would be helpful to move legislation this week that makes it clear that this law does not give businesses a right to deny services to anyone. >> reporter: pence says he will not sign legislation including statewide protections based on sexual orientation. and he still dodges on the question of whether christian based businesses should be exempt from providing services for same-sex weddings. >> do you personally believe that christian businesses -- [ inaudible ]
10:13 pm
should be compelled to supply services -- [ inaudible ] >> i don't support discrimination against anyone. the question that you pose, though, i believe it's -- we're dealing here in a free society with always a careful balances of interest. and the facts and circumstances of each case determine the outcome. >> reporter: democrats here say the only deal they'll accept is repeal. and if republicans try to push something through without their input -- >> my gosh, what message does that send to everybody? their way or the highway. they won't listen to anyone. >> reporter: across the nation, pressure ramping up. >> we shall overcome! >> reporter: in arkansas, where a similar bill could be law, the
10:14 pm
republican governor says he's he'll sign it. walmart came out opposed. north carolina's republican governor says he'll veto a religious freedom bill similar to indiana's. miguel marquez, cnn, indianapolis, indiana. joining me now is cnn senior legal analyst jeffy toobin. jeffrey, governor mike pence has vowed to clarif this law explaining it's not a license to discriminate. explain how this law can exist alongside protections for lesbians and gays without defeating the purpose of the law. >> well, that's a very good question. and frankly, i don't see how it's possible. there really are two possibilities here. one is that the government says that it is required that businesses accept gay customers, same-sex weddings like they have
10:15 pm
to accept interracial couples, religious differences, couples with religious differences. that's one possibility. the other possibility is the government can say individuals of conscious can, in their own discretion, say we don't want to do business with same-sex couples. those are the two possibilities. i don't see how you can work out some sort of compromise, because they are completely different positions. >> exactly. it does seem to be mutually exclusive. i'm just going to paraphrase something that governor mike pence wrote in "the wall street journal." he said, and i'm paraphrasing, that this is not meant to allow a baker to discriminate against a lesbian or gay couple getting married, but rather it's meant to protect a native american child who wants to wear his hair long for religious beliefs. how does the law have to be rewritten to allow those two
10:16 pm
things to exist? >> you know, this whole business about native american children and their haircuts is so absurd. that never came up previously. these laws exist for one reason and one reason only, because same-sex marriage is coming to more and more states and will probably come to all 50 states by the time the supreme court is done in june. it's not about native americans. these laws are about same-sex marriage. and the issue with these laws is, do businesses have to accept the business of day customers? the whole notion of haircuts for native americans is absurd and irrelevant and has nothing to do with these laws. >> i like how you're very direct about that. but mike pence says that the indiana law is rooted in the 1993 law that president clinton
10:17 pm
signed. explain how indiana's law differs from the federal law signed in 1993. >> in one very clear way. the federal law, in 1993, deals with one thing and one thing only, which is may the federal government, in its actions, discriminate against people of faith. the law says that the federal government essentially has to honor the sincere religious preferences of individuals. it says nothing, the federal law says nothing about businesses and their relations to their customers. so they are only similar in that they have similar titles. but what they actually regulate is completely different. >> and we are seeing protests popping up in arkansas because of a similar bill. jeffrey toobin, the backlash has
10:18 pm
been swift and aggressive. thank you for being with us. >> okay. the heir to the geddie oil fortune has been found dead. he was found tuesday afternoon at his home in los angeles. police say a female friend was at the home. she's cooperating with investigators. still, no official word on the cause of death. >> are we treat thing as a murder investigation? >> right now, it's being treated as an undetermined death investigation. so we'll determine whether it was a homicide or natural death or whatever means of death it was. >> henry getty's parents have confirmed the death and are asking for privacy. they say detail also be released when available. we are going to take a quick break here on cnn. when we come back, militiamen have joined forces with iraqi troops to fight isis. ahead, we'll show you why one victory they claimed on the battlefield and the high price they paid.
10:19 pm
and nigeria's president elect. he has a wealth of military experience and that might just come in handy. bring us your aching and sleep deprived. bring us those who want to feel well rested. aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid... plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. be a morning person again with aleve pm.
10:20 pm
10:21 pm
welcome back, everyone. iraq's prime minister has declared victory in the operation to retake tikrit from isis, but there are still
10:22 pm
pockets of resistance. >> tikrit has been in isis hands since june. u.s.-led air strikes played a key role in the success this time. iraqi forces were also helped by shia militias and volunteers backed by iran. >> local volunteers have successfully fought isis in other iraqi cities, but small wins have come at a heavy price. >> arwa damon spoke to a family whose son traded his promising future for death in battle. >> reporter: about to defend his masters thesis, he went to battle and died defending his country. muhammad has also buried two of his sons. one killed by al qaeda in 2007. the other, its successor, isis.
10:23 pm
the endless pain of continuing loss and hardship wearing down on the 71-year-old retired teacher. he taught and watched most of those buried here grow up. they defended their country, but we need someone to protect iraq. he fought for iraq, he pleads. how can you watch us be slaughtered? 150 dead. the most recent price this town, among the few in the area to stand against isis, paid to break the terrorist's seven-month siege. >> we're afraid they're going to kill all of us. >> reporter: it's not much of a choice in a nation where devastation and death tend to repeat themselves. the damage here was done when a vehicle was detonated right there. and that damaged this building. this fighting position. so that's why that building is
10:24 pm
damaged. this was one of their key points. there were quite a few fighters killed here. you can still see the traces of the defensive positions with the sold sandbags, the holes in the wall that they used to shoot back at the isis fighters as they tried to advance. there is pride in their victory. but also a sense of resignation, common among many iraqis. rebuilding once again. knowing war may not spare them or the ones they love the next time. arwa damon, cnn, iraq. >> donors at a united nations conference have pledged $3.8 billion to help syrian refugees. much of the funds are coming from the united states and quaid, who each pledged about $500 million each. the total amount still falls short of the $ 8.4 billion the united nations hoped for.
10:25 pm
the u.n. says 12 million syrians need aid and 220,000 people have died in the civil war that's been waging for four years. >> the nigerian president has conceded defeat in the elections. it's a call for celebration for many in the country. >> president jonathan telephoned the president elect to congratulate him on his victory. he campaigned on security issues, fighting corruption as well. just two areas in which mr. jonathan's policies have been widely criticized. nigeria is certainly facing many serious challenges right now. but with boko haram militants on the offensive, it may be buhari's focus on security that attracted so many voters. michael holmes has more.
10:26 pm
>> reporter: he's a familiar name in nigeria. the 72-year-old, a former military leader, he seized power of the country in the early 1980s in what he described as a war on discipline, only to have it seized from him less than two years later. but he's ran for president four times since the country moved to democracy in 1999, with three losses under his belt, this election is very different. boko haram is running ram pant in nigeria's primarily muslim northeast, destroying villages and killing thousands. kidnapping many more. good luck jonathan, a christian, has been criticized for not doing enough about the militant group's growth there and ineffective military efforts that have allowed much of the region to slip from his control. buhari, who is a muslim from the north, may be just the man to bring the security back to the region.
10:27 pm
>> it's a question of security. whether i was a former military officer officer -- [ inaudible ] >> reporter: he's armed with a military background and an army pining for change. backed by the all-progressives party, many see him to the military answer to a military problem. michael holmes, cnn, atlanta. >> this proves the experiment of democracy is turning real for nigeria. it's never happened before. we've never seen this type of transfer out power without violence. time for a short break here.

10:30 pm
welcome back. you're watching cnn newsroom, live all around the world. i'm john vause. >> and i'm zain asher. it's 1:30 in the morning here in atlanta. lufthansa now says its co-pilot andreas lubitz suffered from severe depression because he told his flight training school about it in 2009. investigators suspect lubitz deliberately crashed germanwings flight 9525 into the french
10:31 pm
alps, killing all 150 souls on board. iran and six world powers are due back at the negotiating table in six hours. they gave themselves an extra day to reach a deal. diplomatic sources say france's foreign ministers plan to return home at dawn in an effort to force iran's hand at these talks. there is jubilation, celebration in nigeria after president good luck jonathan conceded defeat in saturday's election. the electoral commission confirms the results. buhari is the one-time military ruler of nigeria. he's promised greater security as the country battles boko haram. recovery teams in the french alps have almost finished collecting the remains of those killed in germanwings flight 9525 and now will focus on the personal items. >> that comes as an eyewitness
10:32 pm
is telling his story. here's our karl penhaul with more. >> reporter: just above the hills of this sleepy farming village, this shepherd says he witnessed the final seconds of flight 9525. i saw the plane heading down along the valley and i said, my god, it's going to hit the mountain. i ducked my head and said that's going to be spectacular. then it seemed to veer left. then after that, i saw the smoke. he says he was walking his dogs when the airbus slammed into a ravine just over six miles northeast of here. that was a week ago. rugged mountain terrain, freezing weather and gusty winds have made recovery operations treacherous. the rescue chief believes the most painful task may soon be complete. quicker than initially forecast.
10:33 pm
we may still have two days' work to recover pkov ecover body pary or monday we should have have gathered up the bodies and possessions, he says. investigators have a hunch the flight data recorder may be buried. once all the body parts are removed, we'll begin to rake to remoss pieces of soil. everything will be raked to see if the black box is buried, he says. until now, recovery teams had to chopper into the crash zone. but on tuesday, a team of 35 rescuers, including investigators and expert mountaineers, drove in on 4 x 4s. back to base, as another day
10:34 pm
comes to a close. he's telling me that winds are about 50 miles per hour and just too tough to stand up. that's why this ax came in handy. like the other men, he's take thing job very personally. he vows he'll do his best to bring all the remains down from the mountain. the families have the right to the truth and to find their loved ones. that's why we're giving 200%. we're working for the families, he says. back on his farm, the shepherd is still shaken up. it's terrible. one day it will haunt me and give me nightmares. i'm never catching a plane again, he says. for him, that nightmare may never fade. karl penhaul, cnn, france.
10:35 pm
saudi air strikes have been hammering rebels in yemen for a week now and civil casualties are starting to mount. julian, thank you for being with us. would you say the air strikes are doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties? >> reporter: i couldn't tell you that. however, what i can tell you in the last four days we've had more children killed in fighting than in all of the conflicts of last year. >> how dangerous is it right now in places like saana? civilians are mingling in with the military targets that the saudis are going after. for instance, you're no longer in yemen because it's too dangerous, which is why you're in jordan. >> 2/3 of our staff are still working across the country, be it in arden in the south, so
10:36 pm
we've got teams working across the country. we have reduced our presence, yes, that's true. it's very difficult to work in yemen right now. the moving around outside of cities is very difficult. the shelling of the major cities is intense and getting worse. and probably the most difficult area of all of this is in arden, where there's both bombardment, as well as very intense street fighting. in all of this, the children are getting caught up. >> i read a report that essentially tanks are being used in certain places to go after snipers. it's like using a hammer to crush an ant. >> absolutely. in arden, it's just a catastrophe. i was in arden a couple of weeks ago. it's a place with difficulties, but nothing like the catastrophe that we're seeing at the moment.
10:37 pm
now you have street-to-street fighting, shelling, tanks firing on buildings, civilians getting caught up. hospitals being damaged. children being caught up in the fighting. >> you mentioned hospitals being damaged. apart from those being killed or wounded as well, is there sufficient medical care for those who need treatment? >> it's very difficult right now. the whole of the medical system is under stress, both from an emergency perspective, but also more widely. so organizations like ourself, we're trying to bring in medical supplies by air. however, we haven't been able to negotiate access to bring in our supplies. we hope we'll get that today for a flight in tomorrow. more broadly, the vaccines that are provided for hundreds of thousands of children across the country is breaking down, because people can't get access
10:38 pm
to fuel. there's keys for diesel, there's keys for cash, you can't get cash from the banks. so the chain that supports the vaccinations for the country is breaking down. we're working with local authorities to provide them with a little bit of diesel to keep things going, but it's very tenuous. >> julian, we'll leave it there. yemen has never been in good shape but things haven't been this bad in a long time. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. we're going to take a quick break here on cnn. when we come back, the new york police department saying that they're investigating an ugly rant caught on video. >> i don't know what the [ bleep ] planet you think you're on right now. >> i'm not planning, sir. >> i said planet. >> we'll have that story coming up. >> charming. plus, the defense rests in
