russians have been destroyed. more from scott mcclain. >> reporter: governor of belgorod region says first time a russian civilian has been killed on russian soil inside the border due north of kharkiv. other villages on the russian side had been evacuated because the russians say some homes were destroyed or damaged in previous rounds of shelling, and there have been explosions, although the ukrainians with notable exception have not jumped up and down to claim responsibility for them. presidential adviser said after series of explosions on russian territory said karma is a cruel thing but didn't take responsible for the strikes
specifically. the steel plant, hundreds of wounded soldiers there, desperate to get out, calling on government to broker a deal. now the ukrainian deputy prime minister is going through her options. there is no military option to get them out. they will not surrender to the russians, which she respects, trying to find another option. nothing is perfect but doesn't need perfect, just workable. says the ukrainians have proposed exchanging russian soldiers for just the wounded soldiers inside of that steel plant. russians haven't agreed yet but negotiations are ongoing. soldiers have been there two months or more, perhaps not as ill supplied as first thought. high-ranking general in
ukrainian armed forces says have been deliveries of arms and aid to the plant, only stopped when the russians got wind of them and had air strikes to get rid of it. we don't know how many deliveries were made or when they stopped, but ukrainians say they have enough ammunition to fight off the russians. for now. scott mclean, cnn, lviv, ukraine. two hours from now, finland is expected to make official, announcing plans to apply for nato membership. shares long border with russia and tried to stay neutral but the war in ukraine changed the views and says president vladimir putin only has himself to blame. >> if that would be the case what that we join, my response would be that you caused this.
look at the mirror. >> the kremlin has made repeated threats to bully finland not to join nato. in helsinki with the latest. >> reporter: warm handshakes, smiles and signature, promising military support as finland speeds to requesting nato membership. >> on event of attack on either, we will come to each other's assistance, including with military assistance. >> reporter: johnson's assurance what the nordic nation's president wants as they consider joining the transatlantic alliance. >> this is good way to go forward and we do appreciate this big step. >> reporter: in parliament where the historic vote will happen, routine business continues, politicians cautious of stating
positions publicly lest russia escalate tensions. >> there's idea that time from the final decision making to the application and joining to nato should be as short as possible. >> reporter: when the moment comes in plenary session of parliament likely next week, koskinen, a member of the pm's party, is sure the vote will carry easily. >> in the plenary, maybe 180 out of 200 in favor of membership. >> reporter: politicians and public for the most part in lock step, wanting to join nato. >> people of course support it, especially when russia have attacked ukraine. >> reporter: not just invasion of ukraine but history of rocky relations with russia spurring
many here to reassess decades of neutrality. >> i have very old father, 96, here when we had our wars in finland with russia. he's been talking about, you know the russians could come anytime. fact you're back in -- take it easy. you never know with the russians, they could always come. take it easy. now i had to say to him, you were right. >> reporter: in a way finland has been preparing for this moment more than a generation. been involved in plenty of nato and other international military operations from iran to afghanistan to kosovo, bosnia, lebanon. just last week, british troops were training here with finnish, american and other nato soldiers. johnson's visit promising more of this.
n nato is expected to be fast tracked, could still take months. nic robinson, cnn, helsinki, finland. washington, u.s. senate democrats failed to pass a bill to protect access to abortion nationwide. growing concerns that the supreme court is poised to overturn the landmark roe v. wade ruling. failed 51-49. all republicans strongly opposed and democrat joe manchin shut down the bill. vice president kamala harris slammed down the republicans. >> this vote clearly suggests the senate is not where the majority of americans are on the issue. what we're seeing around the country are extremist republican leaders seeking to criminalize and punish women for making decisions about their own body. >> in some states, mostly
democratic states, governors are trying to protect abortion rights. closer look at what a reversal of roe would look like. >> my body, my choice. >> reporter: if the supreme court strikes down roe v. wade, will cement the political faultlines in a way not seen in years. representative says she's bracing for post roe v. wade world. her own experience makes her fear what will happen. >> taking away abortion rights and services and care puts women's lives at risk, period. >> reporter: democratic lawmaker was pregnant, heart stopped. >> i was bleeding, doctor was afraid i could hemorrhage and
die. abortion care is part of pregnancy care. >> reporter: the leaked supreme court draft opinion suggests abtion rights will be left to individual states. this is what the country would look like according to analysis of a group supporting abortion rights. 16 states in the district of columbia have laws protecting abortion rights but 26 states are ready or will likely move to outlaw abortion access. 13 have so-called trigger laws designed to immediately ban abortions if roe v. wade is overinterrupted. >> overturned. >> patchwork of states, laws and standards. >> would love all states where abortion doesn't exist. i realize that's not where we're headed. >> reporter: director of clinic offering counseling and medical
services, alternatives to abortion. says s was inspired to do this work because at 19 had an abortion and regrets it. texas lawmakers passed a law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. >> women we're seeing seem more panicked and angry, there is a shorter time frame. >> how much more panicked and scared when it's illegal? >> once that's decided to be illegal, it goes off the table for them. rule followers for lack of a better word. hope is some of the panic goes away. >> reporter: in the states with trigger laws, abortion access will look different. five states have different versions of laws that would allow abortions in cases of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in danger. eight states only if the mother is in danger. all of this likely will have one clear effect for states where
abortion remains legal. >> going to have a lot of people traveling to colorado to be able to get a safe, legal abortion. from all the states that surround us without safe and legal abortion. >> reporter: advocates on both sides of the issue say potential supreme court decision could open the floodgates to new laws. if woman needs abortion because life is in danger, would some lawmakers try to make laws to control how the decision is made? and health clinics offering post abortion counseling, would they be required to report women coming in to seek counseling? these are the decisions advocates are bracing for. cnn, dallas. now from southern california, orange county fire still burning. this is a fast-moving fire, in laguna hills area of southern california.
mandatory evacuation orders in effect for some neighborhoods. 20 homes, some described as multi-million-dollar mansions overlook the ocean are engulfed in flames. about 200 acres is on fire. zero containment so far. get the latest from cnn meteorologist. what's the update? >> this is a poor setup across the region, know how dry it's been, gusty winds not helping. wind and terrain driven fire. this park where the fire initiated in past five hours, residents asked to stop irrigation, using water because firefighter efforts trying to maximize the limited water supplies. broad perspective, entire of the state dealing with drought
conditions. southern california it's severe. and spot fires and embers are carried downstream by gusty wind, enough to deposit them farther and expand the fire quickly. that's the concern for a lot of po p folks across this region. looked at numbers, observation site closest to the fire, long beach airport, 1.14 inches of rainfall through the 1st of may. this time of year should have 8 inches in the bucket. 14% of normal in the wet season. even the wet season is getting 14% of normal. incredibly arid landscape. fuels at high levels, 0% containment, 183 acres consumed and expect it to expand farther. generally calm to breezy at
times at the airport, but the landscape here can exacerbate the situation, that's the concern with the canyons across the area. >> it becomes a perfect storm, factors playing into each other and erupt so quickly. thank you. all passengers and crew were safely evacuated after passenger plane skated off the runway and caught fire in china. engine catching fire after scraping the tarmac. 122 on board, 40 taken to hospital for minor injuries. accident is under investigation. still to come, north korea reporting first covid-19 case, and leader kim jong un orders all into lockdown. new details on al jazeera journal shot and killed in the

funeral procession will begin in a few hours for al jazeera journal shireen abu akleh, shot while covering a military operation in jenin. her producer was shot, remains in injured condition. gunfire is heard, man shouting shireen, shireen and she's seen lying face down on the ground. large crowds gathered to mourn as her body was brought in. and messages pouring in from around the world. live from jerusalem with the latest, there's the question of who did it but what's the reaction there from her colleagues, al jazeera, the
press corps in jerusalem? >> shock, dismay, and really just trying to comprehend what happened. shireen was a household name in the arab world, had been with al jazeera for 25 years reporting on the conflict in the west bank, israeli/palestinian conflict. friends in this office, on the others. didn't know her personally but working as journalist and this happens to colleague, it's shockingment and it's not like she was, you know, new to this. doing it 25 years, a veteran correspondent, wearing a protective helmet and bullet-proof vest as well. still suffered -- she was killed. by gunfire. as you say, don't have
definitive conclusion of who shot them, palestinians laying it on israeli forces, but the hospital who carried out the autopsy says it's not clear who shot the bullet. there's calls for full and transparent investigation by the white house and asking the palestinians to share the bullet to carry out forensic analysis to reach a definitive conclusion. but i think we will get to some kind of definitive conclusion, not least because of the added pressure from the u.s., she was a u.s. citizen as well. and u.s. also demanding not only investigation be carried out to find out who shot shireen but they be very much held to account for what happened. john. >> thank you.
north korea claims to have detected very first case of covid-19. state media says the omicron variant was found in the capital, pyongyang. kim jong un shared a politburo meeting. what are they doing? >> it's not clear, what we've heard from the state-run media, uncertain what they'll be doing. what kim said, he's ordered a lockdown of all cities in the country, so everybody has been ordered inside. so what they've said at this point, has to be stressed, this is the first time north korea has admitted to a case of covid-19, not necessarily the first case they've had. always claimed up to this point they didn't have any cases, but only tested tens of thousands of
people since the beginning of the pandemic. what they've said, they've had samples collected from group of people with a fever may 8th. don't know how many people have tested positive for omicron. but it is a highly contagious variant as we all know. it was prevalent on all three of north korea's borders, russia, china and south korea, so appears it has managed to get through. not just across the border but into the capital pyongyang itself. there was criticism from the politburo meeting calling the laxity and incompetentece of allowing the variant into the country. but we know how difficult it is to counter the omicron variant. there are a number of great concerns with covid in north korea. first of all, unvaccinated country as far as we know.
heard from the w.h.o. it is unvaccinated, one of only two in the world alongside eritrea. there have been efforts to get them into the country but appears to have been rejected. as as astrazenica offered but it was rejected, worried about side effects. it's unvaccinated country with potentially little to no immunity if there haven't been significant outbreaks before. if everyone is under lockdown, there are no food deliveries in north korea, how will people survive? infrastructure is sadly lacking to be able to cope with significant outbreak. we don't know how significant this is, if it's more than one person tested positive.
but very fact that north korea 2 1/2 years into this is admitting it has one case at least shows they're concerned about it. briefly an opening up or trade coming across the border from china he eearlier this year, sh since 2020 and now completely closed once again. all cities under lockdown and unknown how much information will come out from north korea as to how bad this outbreak could be. john. >> being under lockdown is miserable, in north korea, that's another case altogether. thank you. best of times, record low unemployment. and also the worst of times, increasing, soaring prices. food, cars, housing. latest figures on inflation and whether there's hope on the horizon. more from russia's war in ukraine, woman pulled from

nazis. >> translator: they say it's moi stupidity and i don't need to be there. i hope when time passes our children can talk. i can't talk to them now. russia has lost its mind and cannot control its president. they're each responsible, every citizen. >> reporter: the story here not of ruins, loss or burial in dust, but instead of a feverish energy that burns through the building's bones as kharkiv gets to decide where its pieces fall now. nick paton walsh, cnn, kharkiv, ukraine. according to president joe biden russia's war in ukraine is to blame for much of the bad news of late, shortages in the global food supply. >> america fighting on two
fronts. at home, inflation and rising prices. abroad helping ukrainians defend their democracy and feeding those left hungry across the world because russian atrocities exist. >> president biden promised the country is going to beat inflation. 8.3% compared to last year. that's down a notch from 8.5% in march. that's hope that maybe the worst is over, even though prices remain painfully high. brian todd looks at americans coping. >> reporter: in grocery store in northeast d.c., shoppers more than fed up with food prices. >> it's hard, you know, trying to balance what you need and want. >> soda to meats to vegetables, everything increased. >> reporter: according to new government figures, annual inflation did ease off last month but near a 40-year high,
prices rising 8.3% for the year ending in april, slightly lower than the 8.5% rise in march. food one of the biggest factors. with shelter. meat, fish, eggs and milk went up. eggs spiking 10.3%. >> what has gone up most? >> eggs, they were very cheap. >> reporter: and housing costs for renters and owners 35% third month in a row. consumers taking big hit. >> $450 more being spent than a year ago to buy the same goods and services because of the higher inflation. >> reporter: gas prices dipped but back to setting records. >> drive by it's one price and within hours will jump up again. >> reporter: with inflation this high, millions of american families struggling to make ends meet due to the pandemic may
still have to make tough choices. >> really will mean some people might have to actually skip a meal, maybe can't feed their children way they want to. will not be able to cover rent or all of the rent. >> reporter: on the bright side, one top economist says there could be relief in sight. >> inflation is peaking. it's due to the pandemic and russian invasion, if they don't go off the rails, i think we'll see inflation lower by the end of the year, certainly by this time next year. >> reporter: analyst says that doesn't mean prices will just come down. get used to high prices for food, but will come down, the price of gasoline and before the end of the year, prices of new cars will start to go down as supply chain issues get ironed out. brian todd, cnn, washington. shortage of baby formula in the united states is getting
