continue our special coverage of the united kingdom's decision to leave the eu. >> and the dust is starting to settle in britain after what was an historic day, the world getting a clearer look at some of the consequences it can expect from this decision. >> foreign ministers from six founding countries are meeting and wheels are turning within the uk, as well. >> scotland holding a cabinet me meeting, saying another independence referendum is likely on the way. >> and hollande and ban ki-moon said they would remain strong ties with the uk despite their decision. >> translator: it is democracy, but at the same time, we need to draw all the conclusions and consequences within the framework of the european union and the participation of the
united kingdom. we now have to organize this separation, but we have to do this in the right order and following the rules which must be uimplemented. we also must maintain our relations with the united kingdom particularly concerning questions of migrants, refugees. united king tomorrgdom and euro union now will have to undertake intense discussions about the tens to follow. i trust the fact that these talks will take place in a positive and pragmatic way. >> meanwhile world markets were in a state of disarray with the
brexit triggering a significant downturn around the globe. >> nic robertson is at downing street. extraordinary day yesterday. authorities sort of left the building behind you in a way. this is it all about who will replace david cameron. >> reporter: his authority hasdy m mip diminished. he's left the building. we understand he's in the prime minister residence outside the capital. but, yes, he no longer has the power that he had before he stepped out to the podium and announced his resignation and it is now all about who will replace him. boris johnson who is one of the leading figures of the "leave" campaign has been jugged to be angling for the prime minister job for many year. he went to university with the prime minister, they were close friends. he was mayor of london for many years. but when he announced that he was going to be joining the
"leave" campaign, strong rumors began then that this was availed leadership challenge and indeed it does seem to have come to this, his name is top mopping the list of possible leader of the conservative party. perhaps he may be judged as too divisive for that role, but at the moment he does seem to be top of the list. take rea may was in the remain oig camp stuck to the security line that britain was better off in terms its security by being inside the european up. of course the home secretary, her role to keep british people safe. that is the line she stuck with. could she emerge as leader. she'd long been seen as a leader towards a role like that. definitely george osbourne far
too close associated with david cameron and the "remain" camp. so all up in play at the moment. >> david cameron quite frankly looked shellshocked yesterday as he made the announcement that he would resign. he said he had campaigned for britain to stay within the eu with his heart, his head and his soul, but he said he wasn't the man to lead the uk into what will be these messy negotiations about how to separate from the eu but maintain trade deals and other deals that will allow this economic -- the story of the economy here to continue to grow. so how difficult is that separation process and deal making process going to be? >> reporter: i think a lot of that will depend on what we hear from the foreign ministers in berlin today.
they will set the stage for how 17 of them will tackle this task. the six original founding member, italy, france, belgium, netherlands and luxluxemburg, t will set the stage. part of their message is that they don't want to see further splinterings, they didn't want to see other countries spinning off, as well. so the they weres they may set are going to look -- they will want to set tough terms, but there a thought process here in britain that if you play this process relatively slowly, then you may get more favorable terms. so you already have a difference of opinion there. it appears that that is what will emerge. slower is the british few at the moment, but still the potential that britain may get the special more preferential
relationship. but we really don't know which way it will go. and i think even amongst european leader, they have to pig figure it out amongst themselves, how they will handle this. >> and it's that lack of clarity which is worrying so many. nic, thank you. >> markets closed on friday and they will have a weekend of political maneuverings to digest when they open on monday. the brexit vote really did spark a massive bout of chaos. alison kosik breaks down the numbers for us on what could happen next from the new york stock exchange. >> britain has decided no more eu. and the fallout is staggering. global markets reacted with a selling frenzy. asian markets tanked on the news. japan's benchmark index hit especially hard down 8%. stocks in london fell about 3%.
surprisingly stocks there still up for the week. the damage was much worse elsewhere in europe. german dax plunging 7%, its worst day since 2008. here in the u.s., the dow and s&p 500 dropped about 3.5%. the nasdaq fell more than 4%. it was the worst day since last august. but this may be the most stunning chart of the day. the british pound versus the u.s. dollar, the pound plummeting to the lowest level, a level we haven't seen since 1985. here is the problem. markets hate uncertainty. this yes vote caught markets off guard. investors are running scared dumping money into gold and bonds and now there are a lot of questions for what this means for businesses, the uk and the global economy. now the investors have the weekend to position it over. was this frenzied selling an overreaction or just the beginning? alison kosik, cnn, new york. immigration was one of the biggest issues leading up to
this referendum, many people think was the lynch pinchpin of "leave" camp success. a professor at the london school of economics joining us with we hope all the answers to so many of the questions. if you don't know, nobody knows. such a lack of clarity and the result of the sort of mess we saw in global markets, what happens next? >> well, what happened is the referendum campaign was like an asymmetric war. the two sides were not fighting with the same battles on the same issues. the "remain" camp never recognized what it was all about and the "leave" campaign recognized that it was about large sections of the population feeling very unhappy, very
insecure, their public services were not as good as they used to be, their jobs were not as secure, their children and other members of their family were on zero allowance contracts. >> and so they were voting against the system? >> yes. >> so that begs the question what will the impact on those who voted to leave be of britain leaving the eu? is there any difference whatsoever? >> the awful possibility and tr is a really nice note in the financial "times" this morning is that if it is bad for anybody, it might be particularly bad for precisely the people who voted for it. that there is a whole range of areas where membership in the eu protected the rights of workers of pregnant woman, of the sick. those people are not going to be better off. and if we speculate about what
sort of a government we might have post-cameron, three names that have been mentioned, none of them are to the left of david cameron. he at least at one level represented or tried to represent a kind of caring conservatism. goet, may, johnson do not. they're tough, they're hard, they're on the right of the party. >> i'm interested in the logistics of it, as quell. how do we extricate ourselves. is the government going to be using up all the parliamentary time that it could be using on other issues just to try to get this through and what is the lasting damage? sgrts t sgrts. >> the lasting damage that you have implied, that it will push all things that most ordinary voters might consider really important. standard of living, employment,
public services to the side while all these complicated disentanglements from europe. and even this morning with hollan hollande's statement, reentanglement with europe. >> it sounds to me as if politicians or elected officials have been rather irresponsible. if those who voted to leave seem not to have actually understood the impact on them, that speaks to the point you made in the beginning which is neither chasm ever really had a cogent argument as to whether britain should stay or leave the eu. the suicide of that is that there seems to have been a vote about how people feel about their leadership. it seems a deficit of leadership at present, not just in the uk, but in the eu. >> yes. a feeling that whatever is going
on, it's not of great benefit to ordinary people and the discussion is at a level which doesn't really engage with what worries them. if you listen to the "remain" campaign, it was always the times like an economic seminar. very cogent, very well informed, but it engaging with the concerns of the voters. in many cases, no. >> fascinating, isn't it. analysis of why the vote went the way it did is very important for future politics because they will have to start addressing the needs of the country and they obviously didn't locate them before. >> and also important for those 75% i think of 18 to 35-year-olds who voted to remain in the eu. it will be important in the end to provide an argument for them as they grow up -- they're grown up, but as we move through.
if the impact of the uk leaving the eu is damaging for their prospects, be we are come up with a ren wason why we voted t out. >> and if they want to go work abroad, go to foreign universities, it all becomes more difficult. >> thank you very much, professor. sco scotland may make its own exit plans. there is renewed talk of a potential scottish pullout from the united kingdom. plus, the leader of france's far right party is celebrating the vote to leave the eu. mary le pen is also calling for similar in france. details on that next.

hammer out what they do next after the uk voted to leave the european union. atika shubert is standing by. what is the buzz? >> reporter: well, actually those foreign ministers of those core eu countries have met at a breakfast meeting this morning c and they are trying to figure out what to do flex. t next. the core countries want they them to leave as quickly and beenlessly as possible.the core them to leave as quickly and beenlessly as possible. their main mission is to map out some way out of this and how to do it best by showing that no other eu country should attempt to leave the eu, make it clear to the uk that there will be no
benefits. so most important part is access to the single market of the eu. so these are the issues that they are discussing. but the sticking point here is that while they can discuss and negotiate and come up with plans, nothing really moves forward until the uk submits its article 50, the official notice that it wants to leave the eu. and that will not happen until there is a new prime minister in the uk. >> and they will drag it out because they didn't want to rush it through. they know that it will be an absolute nightmare in terms of logistical extrication from the system, but those leaders want it dwelt with as quickly as poll. could they not argue that that chapter has already been invoked and that the two year process has already started? >> reporter: well, what we will see is that even though legally the wheels aren't moving yet, helped the scenes as you can imagine a flurry of negotiations and diplomacy. so it starts with the meeting
today. west the eu will formally heat with the 27 members, not the uk, to discuss what to do now that the referendum is done and dusted. but ultimately it's all negotiations and all trying to leverage for position at this point. and this is why the longer that goes on, perhaps it is in the uk's advantage to try and get a better negotiating position. it's all about trying to get the best possible trade deal and what the eu wants to show is that if you leave the union, then you no longer get any of the benefits of accessing its single market and the uk will want to negotiate a deal that give shs kind of specialized access and we'll see a listening drawn out process that could take mochbts months if not year. >> and we're also following countries that voted to overw l
overwhelmingly voted to stay in the european union. they are wanting to hold a unification vote in the wake of brexit. >> and a scottish referendum is highly likely. phil black has the latest. >> reporter: democratically unacceptable, that and he out first minister of scotland described the possibility that scotland could be pulled out of the european union after the people of scott land had voted so overwhelmingly in favor of staying with the european uniono overwhelmingly in favor of staying with the european union. 62% of scottish people voted in favor of that. first minister said it was clearly the democratically expressed aspiration of the scottish people to stay part of the european union, part of the common market. and she was prepared to do everything possible to make sure that happened, including calling another independence referendum.
now, it was only back in september 2014 that the scottish people voted on the issue of independence. that vote decided that scotland should stay with the united kingdom. now the first minister says there has been material and significant change in scotland's circumstances. through her political party's recent manifesto, she said under those circumstances, a second referendum would be reasonable. more than that, she now says that her government is already preparing legislation within the two year time scale that the united kingdom has to disengage itself from the european union. >> i can therefore confirm today that in order to protect that position, we will begin to prepare the legislation that would be required to enable a new end espn refer rep dumb to take place if and when parliament so decides. to conclude, this is not a situation that i wanted scott land or the uk to be in today.
my responsibility in a claim of uncertainty is to seek to lead us forward with purpose. >> nicholas sturgeon said they want to be outlard looking and conclusive and she felt it was inconceivable for the british ghoechlt government to stand in the way of another independence referendum if the scottish p parliament decided to proceed. >> the eu knows full well the decision could inspire other countries to follow suit, italy's prime minister saying he intends to be a said e a stead influence. >> reporter: t >> translator: they're in a position to guarantee the security of saver respect. italy is solid and today its role is to offer the solidity to other european partners and to
this end, we will work from tomorrow with the foreign ministers of the founding nations. >> that meeting already started of course. the president of the european commission echoed those sentiments. he said the decision is done with and the eu must move forward accordingly. >> personally i'm very sad about this decision, but of course we have to respect it. >> across the english channel, leaders and the people of france also reacting to their neighbor's vote to leave the european union. >> jim bittermann has more. >> reporter: it was clear from president hollande's reaction he did not want to witness its demise. >> translator: the choice of the british is a serious trial for europe. we need to show our strength,
our solidarity and bring about the necessary responses in order to control the financial and economic risks in the departure of the united kingdom. >> reporter: the leader of the extreme right party applauded the vote and called for a similar vote in france. >> translator: the british people have brought the european people and also the entire world a real and great lesson in democracy. not to give into fear, not to give into the apocalyptic prediction, and they chose a path of freedom. >> reporter: but not all agree that the british vote was so positive. those who long follow the construction of the european union were saddened by the result and understand its implications. >> it's a loss for europe as a whole. we need more democratic legitimacy, more accountability in europe at this stage and it clearly called for the parliament to have more say.
>> reporter: some here directly blame the british prime minister for what they call a catastrophe. >> the problem today is not to punish the british for what they did. the problem is to integrate what their message was and what it means for us. >> reporter: and france some thousand shaking up the eu was a good thing. >> should we did kind of a new europe? i don't really know. i think unity is the answer. i don't think it's going away from the europe. so we'll see. >> i think it's a disaster. a disaster for london, a disaster for europe also and for french people. >> it is going to be tough for all of us. even for english people. >> reporter: what comes now is what the european union has seen a lot of over the past sixet meetings and hammering. for or against, you heard people
say the same thing. it should be a wake-up call to eu leaders. now that they're up and awake, the real question is can they deal with the issue it s it has raised. jim bittermann, cnn. he took a political gamble and now david cameron is stepping down. >> we'll take a look at the political events that led up to his resignation. and later this hour, donald trump's own brand of politics. stay with us. e you? be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin. be the you who controls your psoriasis with stelara® just 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before starting stelara® tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have symptoms such as: fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough.

we continue our coverage of the uk's vote to leave the european union. i'm max foster. s >> and i'm becky anderson. as the dominos start to fall, we saw the markets react first as they plunged in the wake of this decision. there is still major uncertainty in the financial sector and %-p. >> the political fallout has been no less severe. foreign ministers from the six founding nations of the eu are in berlin discussing the next steps for the bloc and the uk is facing more turmoil as scotland looks poised to set another independence vote of its own. >> and david cameron gambleded his political future over this historic vote. cameron campaigned heavily you may remember for the uk to remain in the eu. >> and now cameron is stepping down and wants a new prime minister in place by october.
>> i will to everythingdo everyo steady the ship over the coming weeks and months, but i do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination. this is not a decision i've taken lightly, but i did believe it's in the national interests to have a period of stability. >> the other 27 eu nations will discuss the terms of britain's divorce on wednesday. that will happen in a meeting without the british prime minister there and before that cameron will have to discuss -- have a chance to discuss the results of the referendum with the eu leaders on tuesday. sf. >> and that is just one of the la last meetings that cameron will attend. here is a look at the political events that have led up to his resignation. >> reporter: this is a decision that is bigger than any individual politician or government. and so it turned out to be.
david cameron's prime minister of a referendum ultimately the death knell of his leadership. the argument over britain's place in europe bringing his time at 10 downing street to a dramatic end. when cameron first took officer in 2010, it was against apunfamiliar backdrop, a coalition government for the first time in generations. >> we are in new politics. >> reporter: cameron oversaw the country's gradual economic recovery, a shrinking budget the deficit and record number of jobs created. although the process of austerity was painful for some. cameron maintains britain's special relationship with america, joined the international coalition against isis and welcomed the world for highly successful london 2012 olympics. when it came to re-election last year, even cameron was taken by surprise when he won a majority.
but that win came at a cost. pressure from an increasingly disgruntled group of eurosceptic mps within cam rop's own party forced him to make a pledge. >> yes, we will deliver that in/out referendum on our future. >> reporter: the europe issue has divided cameron's conservative party for decades. >> i am not a british isolationist, but i do want a better deal for britain. >> reporter: in february, he went to brussels britain's position in europe. he declared it a success, but critics said little had changed. >> explain to the house and to the country exactly in what way this deal returns sovereignty over any field of law making. >> reporter: having failed to convince even some of his closest political allies, cameron's position going into the referendum was vulnerable.
he had already announced he would step down before the next election in 2020. >> i'm not standing for re-election. i have no other agenda than what is best for our country. >> reporter: as cameron steps down, the race to fill his shoes will quickly heat up. >> so it will. >> let's take look at who will replace david cameron. that's pretty of the story now. >> yeah, it is. first, can 48-year-old michael fwoe gove, always seen as a close ally of david cameron, but decided to campaign for britain to leave the eu. >> one of the favorites before the referendum was take rea theresa may. she also said that the uk should look at further reformrea theresa may. she also said that the uk should look at further reform on the freedom of movement. >> interesting choice of image. and boris johnson, the 52-year-old, former mayor of
london, currently a member of the british parliament. johnson surprised some by coming out as a leave oig campaigner. certainly in the past he's been an out and out favorite of europe, but he certainly hasn't been an outed eurosceptic as it were. >> and some confusion there. the kochconsequences of bregkxi unknown. a leave oig assusupporter joini us. it's been 25 years campaigning for britain to leave the european union and you've done it for 32. you're happier than nigel. >> i read a book called against the federal europe which actually pointed out that this would lead to riots and protests
in europe if it collapsed as it has been doing and also that it would leave to massive unemployment, waves of immigration and rise in the far right which i'm very much against. but i said that this would be a destabilizing force because of the centralization creating a compression. and i've now written another book called from brussels with love which in 24 hours went to the to which the amazon list. and actually the point is that understanding the nature ofwhic. and actually the point is that understanding the nature of the impact which is now causing a long discontent. ha half the countries now want referendums. >> why is it that you believe britain is better off out? >> just at that time the sitake. of course we traded 44% with our exports to europe, but when you look at the trade balances with us and the other 27 member
states, we run a deficit of 68 billion a year and it went up by 10 billion last year alone. our trade service with the same goods and services with the rest of the world is 31 billion and that went up by 10 billion last year, as well. germany on the other and which is a very crucial factor in this and hasn't been properly looked at makes a trade surplus with the same 27 of 82 billion a year. now, that demonstrates something very clearly which is that enormous benefit to german, but not the uk. and that is an important factor. the compression chamber i've described is a democratic question because this vote ultimately is about democracy and the american public will understand this, they think back to the 1770s and boston tea
party and they rebelled, no taxation without representation. >> actually people are celebrating it on every side today. but a profession are who we spoke to earlier disagrees with you that this was a vote against the european union, it was actually a vote against disenfranchisement from the system and people from the north of england feeling that they are suffering in their everyday life because they're not getting enough. >> and this would make it worse not better for them. >> he and i know one another quite well and we've just had a very interesting discussion before i came on and we'll go back to it. the point is that there is an element of a reaction against centralized government, but there is also a reaction within the labour party against the fact that they have been telling them to do things which actually they didn't want to do. >> a brief question.
the u.s. presumptive candidate donald trump has and is likely going forward to capitalize on what has happened here. is that a good thing do you think? are you proud to know that what the uk has done here will be taken advantage of by donald trump? >> no, you're misrepresentsing it if i may say. what he actually says is they have taken the country back and as a matter of fact that is true. but it is actually as i said with regard to the american experience, actually the fact is that all over europe, people are saying and in america because they are getting very fed up with the centralization there, as well that's why i think donald trump is getting so much support. the fact is democratic is locally based, but it should be based on people having their on democratic concept expressed. and through the european union, the laws are imposed on you, they decided behind closed doors in corridors run by officials and it's not democratic at all in the minds of many, many people. and it's caused enormous amount
of disturbance. europe has created the instability. this event is not in itself creating the instabilitinstabil actually inherent in the way that the european union is itself constructed. >> so big cash you will not be surprised to hear is a eurosceptic and has been for many years. >> and i would say with good reason. >> and you have public support as well. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. you? be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin. be the you who controls your psoriasis with stelara® just 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before starting stelara® tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have symptoms such as: fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough.

assurances that the special relationship between the u.s. and the uk is still solid. >> i do think yesterday's vote speaks to the ongoing changes and challenges that are raised by globalization. but while the uk's relationship with the eu will change, one thing that will not change is the special relationship that exists between our two nations. that will endure. the eu will remain one of our indispensable partners. our nato alliance will remain a cornerstone of global security. >> the uk's decision to leave the european union has been compared to the rise of donald trump in the u.s. >> since both highlight voters' dissatisfaction with the political establishment. >> but some say trump is more concerned with himself than his fellow americans. the presumptive republican presidential nominee disagrees. sara murray reports.
>> reporter: with scotland's lush hills at his back, donald trump is applauding the uk's decision to turn its back on the european union. >> people want to take their country back. they want to have independence. >> reporter: trump sensing parallels between the voter angst driving the british exit and the anxieties fueling his campaign in the u.s. >> you're going to have more than just in my opinion more than just what happened last night, you're going to have i think many other cases where they want to take their borders back. i think it's happening in the united states. >> reporter: trump even claiming president obama bears some responsibility for the brexit after he pushed for the opposite outcome. >> i actually think that his recommendation perhaps caused to fail. >> reporter: as he argued both obama and hillary clinton are out of touch with american voters -- >> she's always misread anything. the only reason she did it is because obama wanted it. if obama wanted it the other way, if he said leave, she would have said leave. >> reporter: clinton's campaign fired back. >> he's not concerned with foreign policy, he's not
concerned about the american people or their security. he's concerned with himself and that's it. >> reporter: trump who admitted he didn't spend much time brushing up on the brexit, he will need to do so with his foreign policy advisors. >> i've been in touch with them, but there is nothing to warn about. people want to see borders, they don't necessarily want people pouring in to their country, that they don't know who they are and where they come from. >> reporter: vice president joe biden cautioned against politicians playing to people's fears. >> all this provides fertile terrain for actionary politic n politicians and demagogues, peddling xenophobia. it is has been unamerican. >> reporter: and from the ninth hole of his trump turn berry golf course -- >> a lot think this will be the graet he is par 3. >> reporter: he defended his trip which come he as a hoe men
tuesday time. still, he doesn't have a single diplomatic meeting on the books. instead he's dismissing questions about his rocky relations with leaders like david cameron. the british prime minister who just announced his resignation. >> where is david cameron right now? >> well, i was just wondering whether all the scottish caddies are the red caps. >> it's a beautiful scene. a beautiful place. he's a mix -- people have mixed views about him because he has brought lots of jobs into the area. but he's a controversial figure and the pr is something controversial. much more on the fallout, though, not from the trump visit, but from the british referendum. we'll check on other stories, as well. >> we'll be right back after a very quick break.
he has attended a wreath laying. on this trip francis has once again calling the mass killing of armenians in world war i a genocide and those comments will likely anger turkey which rejects calling the killings genocide and many takens there were losses on both sides. 20 countries recognize the event as a genocide including france, canada, russia and italy. the u.s., uk and israel do not. armenia says 1.5 million died. turkey puts the number at around 300,000. brazil's only accredited lab to test for doping says it hopes to get its license back in time for the summer olympics six weeks from now. the brazilian doping control lab was suspended on friday. here is nick paton walsh with
why. >> reporter: he don't know the precise reason why this key laboratory was suspended where 6,000 samples should have been processed during the games. but they are clear this isn't a series of misdemeanors because when the facilities are enspected, they can for small issues offer incurring points result in a suspension. i'm told this was an issue that was serious enough that merited the suspension. a spokesman when pressed whether or not this could be clarified before the games said it is possible it won't be, that this facility will not be used and they will have to go to con f contingency planning like they did in the world cup. that would call into question the speed of their functionality, can they process samples fast enough to satisfy the appetite for clean slate here during the medals process at the games and also too what really was the issue.
there has been millions on clean new state-of-the-art equipment in that facility that we saw ourselves just a matter of days ago, so maybe there is another issue. we simply don't know and we may never though before the games start. the laboratory issued a clear statement saying they believe their work is in the pursuit of excellence and they think the next inspection will actually enable them to have a clean slate and carry out the tests for the games. one confusing discrepancy, the laboratory say they only heard about it from the wider attempt released late on friday. so a lot of questions to be answered here still. laboratory convinced they have a clean slate, one issue so serious that they can't fill this vital role at the game. but this adds yet another problem to the myriad of issues that these olympics are facing and it's one that goes straight to the heart of perhaps the most sensitive part of the sports, russia already under great
scrutiny here. many of its athletes won't be able to compete, many have to go through increased testing. kenya perhaps, too, under similar scrutiny and now the one facility that was supposed to sweep through all of that and be a shining beacon of clarity here is in severe trouble if not simply out of commission for the games themselves. yet another problem and a very serious one on the list of issues here for rio 2016. nick paton walsh, cnn, brazil. in france the euro 2016 football championship continues with three matches set for saturday. it's the knockout stage and poland and switzerland kick things off. wales and northern ireland reach on the pitch, the first time either has reached the elimination stage in 58 years. and that is the news from

new prime minister. >> and #london is open. he says london won't suffer from the decision noting that i want to send a clear message to londoners businesses and investors around the world. >> earlier french president hollande and ban ki-moon each talked about europe maintaining strong ties with the uk despite the uk decision. >> translator: i was very concerned about the british vote, but it is democracy. but at the same time, we need to draw all the conclusions and consequences within the framework of the european union and the participation of the united kingdom. we now have to organize the separation, but we have to do this this in the right order and following the rules which must be implemented. but we also will maintain our relations with united kingdom
particularly concerning economics, france's relations concerning questions of high grants, refugees. >> translator: united kingdom and the european union now will have to undertake intense discussions about the steps to follow. i trust the fact that these talks will take place in a positive and pragmatic way. >> elsewhere in europe, foreign ministers from the six founding eu nations are meeting in berlin reeling from what was a major blow to their union. there is scarce lay place that isn't feeling this decision. and cnn has reporters stationed around the world ready for bring you the very latest as you would expect. >> absolutely. nic robertson is standing by for
us at 10 downing street. >> but first let's bring in atika shubert live in berlin as we look ahead to the eu summit on monday. and beginning to get some sense certainly in reports in german media of what germany is suggesting is the right way to get through these, quote, difficult divorce proceedings. what do you know at this point? >> reporter: exactly. a well respected financial newspaper here has put out a report saying that the german finance ministry has drawn up an eight page emergency plan for what to do when the uk leaves. and the key part is that germany believes there should be a sort of associative status, that's the words in the report, for the uk once it leaves the eu. but the key is that the uk would not be able to immediately access the eu single market. so there seems to be some sort
of a ghoesh yatesed trade agreement. the question is how will this all be groesh yalted out especially since the uk has not formally put forward its request to actually leave the eu. not legally speaking. and so what they will be talking about today at the foreign ministers meeting in which germany is hosting is all of these emergency plans. how can we put a plan together agreed to by all the eu member nations and then pressure the uk into immediately applying for this leave for the eu. because the eu has made it very clear they want britain to leave the eu as quickly and painlessly as possible as a result of this referendum vote. >> nic, this document is very telling because the one assumption with the prebrexit w that britain would still have access with that common market and they're saying it's not automatic and if it was, there is a clear risk that others
would be encouraged to follow britain's example. so they will make an example of the uk and that is very bad news for the british business and british government. >> reporter: and the view from the british side is that the longer it takes for these negotiations to go through or perhaps not jump into them immediately, britain can perhaps get more favorable terms. but the initiative really seems to be on the side of the europeans and certainly they can deck at a time the terms and certainly that was the warning at the outset, the questionat a certainly that was the warning at the outset, the question already being raised among the for ministers according to that same newspaper, would britain be able to take on the president of its rotating european council presidency, what is going to be britain's role next year. the concerns in germany as well about the debt burden across europe and that it would have to shoulder with britain pulling
out. there are real concerns for all the nations. we he don't know yet how it would play out. it's a long way to go and i think it's important to continue to stress that. there is an awful lot that we don't know. but the beginning contours that we're seeing here echo the warnings that we heard in the campaign leading up to the referendum itself that potentially there would be a price and europeans would extract that price from britain and that being controlled at a price access to those markets not immediately granted, that will be a concern. >> briefly, nic, if there is a risk the europeans will play hard ball with the uk, the uk will need a very good negotiator or negotiating team. the power it seems no longer sits in that house behind you. who is in charge at this point and who will lead those negotiations for britain going
forward? >> reporter: well, david cameron is still in charge. the power has ebbed away from him and flooded away in many ways with that speech standing here just yesterday. so the power would then be in the hands of the new leader of the conservative party. we don't know who that will be. but david cameron initially said that he would stay on to negotiate the exit from the european union. he's conceded that position it appears with his resignation even though he was implying the resignation wouldn't come into effect until october. we've heard from boris johnson who is a leading contender to take over that there is no rush for david cameron to leave. we've heard it from other leading conservative figures, as well. but he's really sort of taken the position himself that that is the right course for him. that he is not the right person to captain the country. and that really seems to be that he's gone back to his earlier position that he would be the man to gesh yates the exit.
that is going to fall who whoever the new conservative leader. theresa may also the current home secretary was in the "remain" camp also potentially a person who could emerge as the leader of the conservative party. so much we don't know. we do have to keep stressing that. >> what is really interesting as well, a britt continue next year meant to taup the eurd city, which is an ironic element of this. can they possibly take that position. if they can't, how do you unwind that? >> reporter: i guess it's still possible, certainly very awkward. i think one thing that they will be discussing today is what are the legal provisions for a situation like this because this has never happened before. this is just one of many instances where they just don't know the answers to this. this is not something that was really anticipated.
and what nic was say was absolutely right. ultimately the eu here has the upper hand in negotiations. because once that legal process is started, once that article 50 is submitted by the uk, all the other 27 nations get together and they put together some sort of a deal. and then it's a take tr it or le it option. if you don't like it, walk out. so it will be tough negotiating in the times to come and figuring out whether or not the uk withhold the presidency is just one of many awkward moments coming up. >> all right. thank you. the brexit is having an impact far beyond uk's borders. the rest of europe is wondering where the pieces will fall as this decision ripple across the conity ne continent. a journalist for "le monde"
joining us thousand. while people were voting i seem to remember french president said were britain to vote to leave the eu, that would put the entire project in play. they did and it is, isn't it. >> ideally the british have just shot themselves in the foot. fine. sovereign to do so. so be it. fine. but of course the consequences for europe are extremely bad. first reaction in france was from the far right leader who had the poster printed saying brexit and now france. and that is what she's dreaming with about, the presidential election in france next year. we're expecting her to do 20%, 30% possibly and she's running on this idea of leaving the eu. it's a founding member of the eu with a party that is big chunk of the electorate saying we have to leave. which is why it's very likely
that hollande oig and angela merkel will have no other choice otherwise it's opening the door to the other far right parties in europe. >> and the count er argument to that is that germany in particular won't close off that market.the counter argument to that is that germany in particular won't close off that market. france won't close off that market. >> you're right. i would be surprised if there is no agreement on goods, car, wine. there is one thing that britain is exporting, it's services. financial services. no countries outside of the eu are able to goexport freely int the financial services. not even switzerland. it's called a passport. they don't have a passport to sell the products. there is no way the eu will give the passport to britain. it would be for the eu shooting itself in the foot. and for political reasons i just
explained and for this specifically financial services reason, i can't imagine why the eu would be nice and kind. >> which is one of the reasons we're hearing lots of rumors around the city that some of the biggest banks in the city of london's financial stridistrict looking to move as much as 25%. it's only rumors and that is because there is no clarity at present and nor will there be any for days, weeks, even years to come. and that is the problem. >> i spent the evening yesterday with a group of eventual managers, most of them have been in london 20, 25 years and a lot of french living here and working in the city. a lot of them have question harkhark marks, they don't have answers, but they might not be leaving if this all sorts itself out, but they are wondering what do we do, are we moving our headquarters somewhere to
dublin, to france, to frankfurt. it's a lot of question marks. what about all the european workers they have. most of the big banks got 25%, 50% from the rest of the eu. will those people need visa? a hlot of question marks. of course a lot of that will be sorted, but during that time, why would you invest. during that time why would you do any plan. so it will put everything on hold. anything on the markets would be on hold. that will definitely be pretty bad for the uk in the short term at least. >> this will leave france, germany have the axis of power and they have had their tensions. do you think this is enough to bring them together or are you concerned that those tensions could boil over and actually
lead to the break break up of ? >> that's the challenge. and hollande and merkel not react in the same way. hollande saying we want it quick. and uk is saying we don't have a prime minister, we'll have to wait. and legally it will be really difficult to accelerate all that. so will france and germany really stick together? on the big principles, i would think so. but it would be difficult. >> the last question, this was a european project put together to ensure peace and security. which we have had to all intents and purposes over the past 60 years or so. it was more about peace and security than it was about prosperity. it's become this economic project, but it was always a political project. >> i think the other way around.
the idea was to make it economy in order to bring peace and prosperity. >> fair enough. but in the end, the economic integration never really worked, did it. my question to you is, is this a project limping towards disaster? >> i think we are confusing two things. the european union which more or less actually kind of worked and the eurozone which has been a pretty bad result in the last 10, 15 years now. and that is really hard to see how it is going to tackle that. because we saw germany not giving away at all to greece in the last few years and i can't imagine germany changing. so the euro is a real key problem and of course the two are confused because that is the core of the eu. but that is true what the british answered was something about immigration and sovereignty, but is there a
problem with the eu? of course a real big problem. >> fascinating. thank you very much undeeu vecy. >> so many unknowns. it will keep us in work, isn't it, for the next few years. >> we thrive on bad news and plenty of bad news now. anyway, good morning, everyone. sun shiny out there. >> you want to talk about the weather. >> right. also major economic fallout from this historic vote. up next, the stock market following the "leave" vote. been investors could see. >> got to be something positive there. >> let's hope so. most of the show.

>> the are t >> translator: the result of the referendum has consequences for the whole world economy what you the oil price already fell, the value of the pound, euro are also coming under pressure. >> indeed global investors are looking towards monday trading after friday's vote plunged the markets in to chaos. >> alison kosik breaks down the numbers for us and suggests what might happen next. >> britain has decided no more eu. and the fallout is staggering.
global markets reacted with a selling frenzy. asian markets tanked on the news. japan's benchmark index hit especially hard down 8%. stocks in london fell about 3%. surprisingly stocks there still up for the week. the damage was much worse elsewhere in europe. german dax plunging 7%, its worst day since 2008. here in the u.s., the dow and s&p 500 dropped about 3.5%. the nasdaq fell more than 4%. it was the worst day since last august. but this may be the most stunning chart of the day. the british pound versus the u.s. dollar, the pound plummeting to the lowest level, a level we haven't seen since 1985. here is the problem. markets hate uncertainty. this yes vote caught markets off guard. investors are running scared dumping money into gold and bonds and now there are a lot of questions for what this means for businesses, the uk and the global economy. now the investors have the
weekend to think it over. was this frenzied selling an overreaction or just the beginning? alison kosik, cnn, new york. >> the question then, is this just the beginning. vicky price chief economic adviser at the center for economics and business research joining us now. do you have an answer? because nobody else does. >> well, it won't be very good. certainly not in the short term and probably not in the long term either. of course much will depend on what type of trade negotiation we enter into and finally break on. in other words, if there is freedom of movement for goods and services which of course comes with freedom of movement of people, more or less where we were before with a bit of luck and prospects will be reasonably rosy. if not, then i think we'll be seeing some serious impact on uk economy lasting for quite some time. and certainly foreign direct investment not in the short term. still the fact sterling has
fallen, this will lead immediately to inflation being slightly higher. of course that's not a bad thing in the long term, but will mean more costs for consumer, importers. we rely hugely on importing. so it won't be good for production and at the moment because everyone is worried about the type of relationship we'll have with the eu and wherein deed they will be quite tough on even exporting of goods, people talking about moving production processes elsewhere. that's beginning to happen. >> biggest vulnerability is the city of london which is our biggest earner in this country. we've been hearing from a french correspondent saying no way the french will allow freedom of movement of financial services. they might allow the goods, but not the financial services. and that will be a disaster. >> it will be. and under eu rules, if you are a member, you can set up headquarters anywhere and sell your services across europe without any problems. of course that won't happen if we're not members. so in case we don't get some
bilateral agreements with each country like switzerland is doing, quite hard work to get to that and we're already hearing about banks possibly moving headquarters somewhere else and also moving people in large numbers elsewhere. >> could they not do a deal with dub sloan there is a sort of proxy headquarters there? happening already with some. >> it's quite hard and also of course not fantastically useful in terms of making sure that you have the ability to sell across to cut your costs. so you still have to have accounting somewhere and you will your people somewhere else. tll be a certain element of that without any doubt, but when you're talking about financial services, that can be done that way. you've got a point. although people have raised objections because of the difficulties in some way of
achieving that. it is really the rest is -- in direct impact of the city of london and on the operations of the financial sector. so we're talking about the lawyers, the accountants, services, i.t. and in addition to the financial sector, the whole digital market. people here depend crucially for the city to really flourish on free movement of people, all the skills that are coming in from everywhere. so the impact of the financial sector particularly what it does to lon top and how it enhances it, you start across the uk and that will be lost. >> if people were considering why they were voting, it may be one reason why london has voted to remain, but a small pocket inside this huge wave of out which is what most of england voted for. what does this decision mean for europe going forward? because angela merkel has a huge
job on her hands now, doesn't she. effectively she's sort of calling the shots. she will have to get on with it and make sure that the french buy what she wants to do next. >> absolutely. but first thing to note of course is that the european markets did much worse than the uk markets. the uk markets got help from the bank of england that came out and said we have this 250 pi 55 billion pounds. but we must not forget this isn't free honmoney. but it's really impact on the eu itself and what it will mean in terms of the tomorrow know effect. and it's not just whether other countries may want to leave or if they have very good arrangements with the uk which others may want to also emulate and therefore the break up of the eu as we know it and the eurozone in particular. but i think it is the impact of
any financial fallout to other countries in europe because what you start looking at is are there some weak links. italy, greece, spain, the financial sector in trouble. is there a some sort of contagion taking place where markets will start focusing again on those weak countries and say actually it's unsustainable and to rethink the entire makeup if you like of the eu. and merkel will have some difficulty controlling that if the markets remain as they are now. >> thank you. great analysis. will this historic vote inspire other countries to leave the union? >> up next, the possible brexit trickle todown effect for you.

welcome to our viewers. we continue our kucoverage of t vote to leave the european up. >> the people certainly have spoken, but their message hasn't been that well received so far. finance ministry has drawn up plans and they say access to the eu single market will be a major point of contention going forward. world markets already stumbled badly in the immediate reaction to the decision. >> foreign ministers from the six founding nations are all meeting in berlin, expected to hold a press conference in the
next hour. we'll bring that to you. one of the eu's first major statements since the brexit became official. >> of course nobody knows exactly how things will go from here with what is known as brexit. britain's exit from the eu. but here's what we do know at this point. >> prime minister david cameron says his successor will need to trigger what is known as article 50. >> that gives the 27 other eu countries two years to come up with an exit deal. the u ck will not take part in those talks. >> if there is no agreement after two years, countries can vote to go into overtime. and if no unanimous decision, no deal at all. >> how difficult things are. and therein lies the issue. there is no clarity. right now the uk's biggest challenge may be finding a way to come back together. but that may not be so easy with nearly half of the voters on thursday casting ballots to
remain in the eu. >> now a look at the journey that led to the brexit and how the uk might heal its internal divide. >> reporter: so after 43 long years, the restlessness has found a voice. a seismic decision, but a vote that could hardly have been more divisive. the "remain" campaign took scott land, northern eye ire land and london. but the rest of the country went red and voted to leave. a map then of stark division. we call it the united kingdom, but after this, how you night aed is it. those who see themselves as bris tesch. the conservative prime minister edward heath signed the document. within two years, the new labour government was asking voters to
think again should britain be in or out. throughout the 43 years, the relationship has been intermittently fractious. britain gained economically, but quarreled over money and subsidies not the least under another prime minister margaret thatch thatcher. in 1992, brittain stayed it in the club but declined to join the euro. >> it is time for the british people to have their say. it is time for us to settle this question about britain and euro. >> reporter: cameron's motive was to quell the euyou'r euro s skeptics in his own party. superficially the referendum was a story of blond ambition, a political heavy weight boris johnson coming out for the "leave" campaign. the cartoonists reveled in it,
rolling the dice. steaming down the line, boris at the controls of the brexit express, an anxious cameron roped to the rails. >> i believe that this can be our country's independence day. >> reporter: as a media story, the focus was the battle between conservative politicians, but the truth is brexiteer smt t rb into a genuine anxiety. the campaign was sometimes bitter, sometimes nasty. it spurred social divisions between classes, between town and country, between old and young, between generations of the same family. back in 1975 when british voters last put a ballot to europe, there was a resounding yes in favor of membership.
67% for, 33% against. what a profound shift now. 48.1% for staying in, 51.9% for leaving. no one quite knew it until the question was asked. britain quietly haspolarized. and this referendum has made it an bun daptly clear. and other eu nations enjoying renewed momentum. >> in the netherlands, calling for a dutch referendum on eu membership. >> in italy, two political parties launching a petition for ap ech an eu vote and in france, maria le pen also calling for a referendum. >> let's discuss this with will ripley live for us this paris.
le pen out very quick to capitalize on this. this is the result that she wanted. why is that relevant to france? >> reporter: it's relevant because marie le pen's national front party which really is popular when you get outside of paris which tends to lean more pro eu, the are more rural areas, old industrial rust belt this, is where le pen's message is resonating with people. even before brexit, her party was expected to gain more power next year. and now given the fact that more than half of public opinion polls have said they are unhappy with the eu and a quarter of french in a brand new poll just out this weekend saying that they would support a referendum, it shows that this populist movement is really gaining momentum and that's why you heard the french president and man others in the socialist pro eu government here speaking out that they acknowledge that there need to be changes in the european union, that people feel that all of the bureaucracy and
all of the regulations have not trickled down, have not benefited their lives both economically of course dealing with the my grant crisis, as well. and then in this city in particular, the threat of terrorism. and they feel that the eu has not benefited them. many people feel that way. you heard the leaders here, spain, germany, italy, acknowledging changes need to be made. so will they elect populous leaders in to office and then what happens after that. >> we're looking for the answes and france is very central to this now and didn't expect to be. >> thank you, will. russian president vladimir putin is in beijing meeting with his counterparts. the president of china. we'll have live reports from beijing and moscow after this.
. vladimir putin has been monitoring the uk's decision to leave the european union. >> he said the brexit will unlikely affect sanctions imposed by the eu against russia. >> and also he's quoted as saying we closely followed what was going on but did not influence the process and did not even attempt to do so. >> russian president now this beijing where he's been meeting with xi jinping. >> and steven jank is covering the meeting. matthew chance in moscow. thanks both of you for joining us.
steven, is the brexit debate and result likely to be on the chinese leader's agenda for these talks if at all? >> reporter: well, becky, likely but it won't be a focus between the two leaders' discussion because they very much want to focus on this increasingly close and important by lat bilateral relationship. mr. putin, you have mentioned some of the things he has said reportedly he said he finds the brexit vote understandable because nobody wants to subsidize weaker economies. he even blamed apparently the arrogance of the british leadership for contributing to this outcome. for mr. xi, although officially his government has said they respect the choice made by the uk people and they're confident of the future development of both china uk and china eu relations, so many occasions mr.
xi and other officials have made it quite clear their preference was actually for the uk to remain in the eu. you probably remember mr. xi paid a very high profile state visit to the uk last october during which will he signed multibillion-dollar business deals in the uk. so for some time, the chinese really have been using the uk as a gateway to access the wider beggar european market and also china really has been trying to make london the international hub of globalizing its currency. an for its part the uk has been very pro china voice within the eu when it comes to economic matters. for example, supporting granting china the status of a market economy. so all of these arrangements may just be crumbling down now that the uk is going to be no longer part of the eu. and also politically china has always advocated a multipillar
global order. so a stronger eu is viewed by china as a counter balance to the u.s. so now brexit is probably also going to change that. so i would suppose he's probably not happy with the brexit result. >> and it's interesting, if the currency deal collapses, that is a big loss for the city of london and also fworngeorge osb. but a different story for russia, isn't it, matthew. lots of russians have homes here and strong links with london. we don't have the same diplomatic or political ties. doesn't mean as much to them. >> reporter: yeah, i think you're right when it comes to britain directly. will be some russians that have direct links with britain that may be concerned with this, but the bigger concern is the future of the european union. the european union despite tensions with russia is still
its biggest trading partner and there are divided opinions about what the brexit means. on the one hand the pragmatists say we need a stable and strong european union. europe's disintegration is not in russia's interests. on the other hand, and perhaps putin is part of this, there is a w wrchlt y smile when they see the western institution face disintegration in this way. >> matt, let's talk about this trip that the russian president is on to china. what is it that he will want to take away from this? >> reporter: this trip to china is important for russia, this whole strategic alliance that russia has been building with china over the past couple of years really is central to putin's foreign policy. a couple years ago there was an important gas deal, $400 billion worth of a deal with china and a major about face in the energy policy in russia. more deals are be signed today,
something like 30 business deals including a joint project to develop a wide body aircraft and civilian helicopter. and so economically it's important particularly when russia faces that economic isolation from the united states and european union. but it's the political die mention of this relationship that i think is most important to the kremlin and it's isolated by the west, it's facings sanctions. it's at odds with nato, at odds with the united states and europe over syria, but it can show this relationship, it can boost this relationship with china and say look, we're not isolated in the world, we have powerful allies and present that relationship as a counterbalance to western power. that's what is important to the kremlin. >> these meetings take forever to organize and there would have been an agenda before the brexit vote, but do you think it will be dominated by the brexit? what else will be on the agenda? >> reporter: yeah, i don't think
brexit will be a focus of these meetings. and as matthew mentioned, this is between moscow and beijing, how they further cement their increasingly close ties politically and economically. both countries really feel that increasing western pressures on different issues. for russia it's the ukraine, syria. for china, the south china sea. so the probably want each other's support to shore up their case on the global stage and economically trying to expand their cooperation beyond the traditional gas and oil energy kind of supply kind of deals. matthew mentioned a lot of the potential deals to be signed. so that is really what they're looking forward to. so it's about money, but it's about more than money, as well. >> okay. we bring it to the viewers as well as the continuing brexit coverage. fallout from that refer ren referendum being felt around the
world. >> and firstly we'll check some of the other stories making headlines around the world and we'll be back with that right after this very short break. if hi baby! hi daddy! coverag my belly pain and constipation? they keep telling me "drink more water." "exercise more." i know that. "try laxatives..." i know. believe me. it's like i've. tried. everything! my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know that. tell me something i don't know.
(vo) linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation, or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess.
i'm natalie allen live from atlanta with our top stories. pope francis continues his visit to armenia. he has so far attended an outdoor mass and a wreath laying at the agagen jep sidgenocide m. he once again called the mass killing a genocide and that is likely to anger turkey which always rejects calling the killings a genocide and maintains there were losses on both sides. some 20 countries recognize the event as a genocide including fra france, germany, canada and russia. the u.s., uk and israel do not. turkey and armenia also differ on the number of people killed. armenia says some 1.5 million died. turkey puts the number at around 300,000. brazil's only accredited lab to test for doping says it hopes
to get its license back in time for the summer olympics. that is just six weeks from thousand. the brazilian doping control lab was suspended on friday.and. the brazilian doping control lab was suspended on friday. >> reporter: we don't know the precise reason why this key laboratory was suspended where 6,000 samples should have been processed during the games. but they are clear this isn't a series of misdemeanors because when the facilities are inspected, they can for small issues offer incurring points result in a suspension. i'm told this was an issue that was serious enough that merited the suspension. a spokesman when pressed whether or not this could be clarified before the games said it is possible it won't be, that this facility will not be used and they will have to go to contingency planning like they did in the world cup.
that would call into question the speed of their functionality, can they process samples fast enough to satisfy the appetite for clean slate here during the medals process at the games and also too what really was the issue. there has been millions on clean new state-of-the-art equipment in that facility that we saw ourselves just a matter of days ago, so maybe there is another issue. we simply don't know and we may never though before the games start. the laboratory issued a clear statement saying they believe their work is in the pursuit of excellence and they think the next inspection will actually enable them to have a clean slate and carry out the tests for the games. one confusing discrepancy, the laboratory say they only heard about it from the wider attempt released late on friday. so a lot of questions to be answered here still. laboratory convinced they have a clean slate, one issue so serious that they can't fill this vital role at the game.
but this adds yet another problem to the myriad of issues that these olympics are facing and it's one that goes straight to the heart of perhaps the most sensitive part of the sports, russia already under great scrutiny here. many of its athletes won't be able to compete, many have to go through increased testing. kenya perhaps, too, under similar scrutiny and now the one facility that was supposed to sweep through all of that and be a shining beacon of clarity here is in severe trouble if not simply out of commission for the games themselves. yet another problem and a very serious one on the list of issues here for rio 2016. nick paton walsh, cnn, brazil. and we have the euro 2016 football championship continuing in france with three matches set for saturday. the start of the round of 16 and poland and switzerland kick things off hot off the news of
the brexit at home, wales and northern ireland meet on the pitch. portugal and croatia round out the day. in the state of west virginia in the u.s., at the least 23 people are dead after massive floods. some rivers have overflowed their banks, entire houses and cars have been swept away. 44 counties have declared a state of emergency. the national weather service says there is a one in 1,000 chance of this much rainfall in that area in any given year. and this rainfall took place in four hours. that is the news. i'm that thely natalie allen. for viewers in the united states, "new day" is next. for everyone else, coverage of the european union with george howell. ♪ headache? motrin helps you be an unstoppable kind of mom.
