12:01 am
newsroom." more than four dozen people are dead in the aftermath of terror attacks that targeted civilians. one happened in a beach resort city in ivory coast, the other in turkeyturkey's capital. at least 34 people were killed at a busy transport hub. more than 100 others were wounded. so far there's been no claim of responsibility. turkey's president blames regional instability for the violence. isis and kurdish rebels have launched attacks in recent months. arwa damon brings us more. >> reporter: this is one of the main boulevards that runs through ankara, an area that is normally filled with traffic and people. and was especially packed at the time the blast took place at about 6:45 local. the explosion caused by, according to turkish
12:02 am
authorities, a car packed with explosiv explosives, driven and then detonated very close to a bus station, and according to eyewitnesses was extremely busy at the time. among the dead are also one or two of the attackers. the turkish government investigators still looking into specifically which terrorist organization may have been behind this attack that happened at a time when ankara is already at a state of heightened secure following another attack that took place less than a month ago. that attack, according to the turkish government was carried off by an offshoot of the kurdish separatist group, the pkk. and back in october, there were two twin suicide bombers that attacked a rally. that attack was blamed by turkish authorities on isis. and this just underscores how vulnerable turkey is at this stage. the u.s. embassy had put out a
12:03 am
statement, a warning to its citizens on march 11, telling them to be careful in a certain area and different one, but that there were warnings against a terrorist attack at government institutions, but all this coming at a time when turkey faces numerous threats from a variety of different organizations. arwa damon, cnn, ankara. hours before that blast, gunmen opened fire at a resort on the ivory coast. other hotels had been stormed in recent months. robyn kriel describes what happened with the most recent target. >> reporter: the beach was reportedly packed with people from the nearby ivorien city. some were sunbathing, swimming or eating at beach side cafes.
12:04 am
eyewitnesses told cnn they heard sustained gunfire for about 15 minutes and saw people running away from the three hotels, screaming. >> translator: he arrived near my brother and when he shot him in the head, he shouted "allahu akbar." at that minute, others started to arrive and shoot. >> reporter: they killed six attackers who attacked the hotels and sealed off the air yeah. the area is popular with wealthy ivoriens and foreigners. >> translator: truly, truly, it was terrifying. we never thought this could happen here under these circumstances. it's truly not easy. it's not easy. it's not easy. >> reporter: this attack bore all the hallmarks of previous attacks by the al qaeda affiliate al qaeda in the maghreb. they attacked bamako in november
12:05 am
when gunmen stormed the radisson hotel killing at least 22 people. then in january, gunmen from the same group attacked another luxury hotel and cafe frequented by westerners in burkina faso's capital. at least 29 were killed there. security analysts say this sort of attack targeting the heart of progress in yet another country means aqim is committed to broadening its operational reach by crossing borders into countries such as ivory coast and burkina faso, perceived by extremists as pro west. they announced plans to tighten security so that militants wouldn't be able to cross over from mali and launch attacks. earlier, i spoke with an african security expert about the group taking credit for the attack in ivory coast, and he
12:06 am
says this attack was anticipated. >> caller: we've been warning about something hike this really for most of the past year. that al qaeda and the islamic maghreb and its allied extremist groups were seeking to attack beyond their bases in the sahel. and in recent months. both french and american intelligence have picked up on signals in senegal and warned the government that something was amis and something was coming. and unfortunately, today we saw it. >> he also told knme west africs terror groups are older and more experienced with al qaeda and the nigerian civil wars of the 1 1990s. now peace talks for syria are set to resume monday. each side is accusing the other
12:07 am
of violating issues. the refusal to discuss assad's presidency is called a disruption to the peace process. >> president putin, who is invested in supporting assad, with enormous commitment, and it has made a difference, obviously on the battlefield, everyone has seen that, should be somewhat concerned about the fact that president assad is seemingly singing from a completely different side sheet and that he sends his foreign minister out yesterday, to try to act as a spoiler, to take off of the table what president putin and the iranians have specifically agreed to. >> so what is happening inside syria right now? well, cnn's senior international correspondent clarissa ward went
12:08 am
undercover into rebel-held parts of the country where virtually no western journalists have gone for more than a year. they worked with a film maker on this exclusive report. i'm going to have to give you a warning here. there are graphic images. >> reporter: moving through rebel-held northern syria is difficult and dangerous. as foreign journalists in areas with a strong jihadist presence, we had to travel undercover to see a war few outsiders have witnessed. the city of idlib is the only one under rebel control. this was its courthouse until it was hit by an airstrike in december. dozens were killed. 40-year-old lawyer told us he was inside the building when it was hit. his arm was smashed, but he was lucky to survive. >> translator: the russian
12:09 am
planes target anything that works in the interest of the people. the goal is that people here live a destroyed life. that people here never see any good. that they never taste life. this is the tax of living in a liberated area. >> reporter: an hour later, we saw that tax for ourselves, while filming in a town nearby. we heard the scream of fighter jets wheeling overhead. moments later, a hit. [ horns honking ] there was just an airstrike here in the town, so we're now driving very quickly. it's not clear yet what was hit, but we are hearing that there are still planes in the sky. arriving on the scene, our team found chaos. and carnage.
12:10 am
volunteers shouted for an ambulance, as they tried to ferry out the wounded. for many, it was too late. a woman lay dead on the ground, a jacket draped over her, an attempt to preserve her dignity. russia has repeatedly claimed it is only hitting terrorist targets. this strike hit a busy fruit market. >> translator: this is just a civilian market. this is not a military area. >> translator: there are no military installations or anything. it's a market! look! it's a market! a fruit market! is this what you want, bashar? >> reporter: we couldn't stay long. often jets circle back to hit the same place twice. it's called a double tap. we've just arrived here at the hospital where they're bringing the dead and the wounded from those three strikes which hit a
12:11 am
park and a fruit market. we don't know the exact number of casualties there, but the scenes of devastation, blood on the ground, dismembered body parts and the injured and dead that we've seen arriving here indicate that this was a very bad strike indeed. among the injured brought in, a young boy, moaning in pain. he died moments later. the strikes that day killed 11 people, among them a woman and two children. rescue workers wasted no time in clearing away the rubble. in this ugly war, massacres have become routine. clarissa ward, cnn, syria. part two of clarissa ward's exclusive reporting from inside syria is coming up tomorrow. join us as she goes down the only rble-controlled road

leading into aleppo. it's a lifeline to people who still call the city home. >> reporter: the scale of the destruction is breathtaking. stretching on and on. entire residential neighborhoods reduced to rubble. still, we found pockets of life among the devastation. >> translator: should we leave our country and go to another country? no. this is our country. and we will remain in this until we die. >> now, if you can't wait until tomorrow, you can find more from this exclusive journey on our special web page at there are blogs written by clarissa and a special 360-degree look at aleppo. this is all part of our exclusive coverage inside syria behind rebel lines. all week on cnn. now the democratic presidential candidates fielded questions at a town hall sunday

12:16 am
12:17 am
the democratic u.s. presidential candidates answered questions at a cnn tv-one town hall sunday night in ohio. they talked about a broad canvas of issues, but through it all, one single name kept coming up, and i bet you can guess whose name that is. [ applause ] >> donald trump is a pathological liar. >> he is trafficking in hate and fear. >> donald trump is literally inciting violence. >> he actually incites violence. >> the way you bite trump is to expose him. >> i'm the only candidate who's gotten more votes than trump.
12:18 am
one in three african-american men, if the trends that we see today continue, will spend some time in jail or prison. that is absolutely unacceptable. >> as president, what would you do to create a zero tolerance policy for unjust police killings? >> any police officer who breaks the law, like any other public official, must be held accountable. period. >> i came perilously close to my own execution. i would like to know how can you still take your stance on the death penalty? >> the kind of crimes i'm thinking of are the bombing in oklahoma city. the plotters and the people who carried out the attacks on 9/11. >> who is the person that is closest to you with whom you disagree the most? >> a fella named jim inhofe from oklahoma. and jim is a climate change
12:19 am
denier. he has really, really conservative. but, you know what? he is a decent guy, and i like him, and he and i are friends. >> i watched my husband campaign. i watched president obama campaign. it is poetry. i mean, i get carried away, and i've seen them a million times. that's not necessarily my forte. >> a little bit of a highlight reel for you. a short time ago i spoke to two political strategist, both democrats, one one supporting hillary clinton and one bernie sanders. listen to their conversation, this is their take aways from the town hall meeting, they're quite different. we saw hillary clinton and sanders speaking out against trump, saying he is inciting violence by paying the legal fees of one supporter charged with assault. clinton describes him as bigoted. there were sanders at the
12:20 am
chicago rally which was canceled due to a fear of violence on friday. what did you make of that? >> i will say that donald trump is a dangerous man. and he has, in fact, incited violence at his rallies. he's created a fear, a climate of fear among many people across the country, not just in, at the rallies itself. and i'm going to guess, and i have no evidence for this, that there were people in the crowd protesting and that might vote for bernie sanders and might vote for hillary clinton, and i'm not trying to put the onus on the clinton campaign, the opposite. i'm trying to say that both bernie sanders and hillary clinton together have condemned the racism, the bigotry and violence and violent atmosphere that donald trump is creating, and i think all of us, all of democrats deplore that, and are astonished that the republican party has fallen so far that their front runner, the man who seems to be likely to be the nominee, is an outright racist
12:21 am
who potentially is creating this situation where someone is going to lose their life at a rally in the future. >> and what do you make of that? because at the town hall, secretary clinton says she's holding back some of her strongest language against trump, and indeed, what she said was a bit more subdued than what sanders said. why is that? and what is she waiting for? >> i don't know about being subdued. i think what she said is along the lines of what bernie sanders said. what happened in chicago is very, very unfortunate. one, it's unfortunate for the trump supporters, because, look, we had people there in line for eight or ten hours. but the problem with the whole trump event is the rhetoric. and sort of the tone that he's put forth to his supporters. he's used terms like, hey, if you punch him in the face, he'll pay your legal fees. get those people out of here. he has had a tone, not just for the last few weeks but for the last few months. now what secretary clinton said was we cannot condone that type of behavior. and the person that is
12:22 am
responsible for his events is donald trump. and it's very interesting to me is that he compliments law enforcement on one end, and then he basically, when they are doing their job and putting these people out who are peacefully protesting by the way, earl, then he basically says oh, it's the secret service, and it's the police department, and it's not my campaign. so i totally agray wi gragree w jonathan, i think this is a very, very big concern for all americans, it's only a matter of time, if this doesn't stop, and if donald trump doesn't come out and repudiate what his supporters are doing and say stop it now, we're going to see something very bad happen. >> we are at a bit of a crossroads. you've got five states holding their primaries. sanders has half the overall delegate count of clinton. and if we look at the polls, currently in ohio and florida, the two big prizes, clinton is comfortably ahead. has bernie sanders hit his limit? >> well, when you say polls, i
12:23 am
would only use one word -- michigan. polls have proven to be pretty unreliable. and, you know, i'm a baseball fan, and since i'm in florida, let me invoke the great scholar, yogi barra, when he said it's deja vu all over again. and most contests, if you look at iowa, new hampshire, nevada where bernie was down, and he came close to winning that. the polls don't mean much when you have tens of thousands of people, and i was just at a phone bank, people calling florida voters. those polls don't mean much when there's energized people calling. i think we're going to do well, but let me be clear. this is going to continue to the convention, after this set of elections, primaries, on tuesday, the map becomes much more favorable to bernie sanders. there's no question that we have to find states where we win outsize jurors. 60% and higher in order to get a
12:24 am
larger share of the vote. when either candidate wins by a few points, the delegates basically get divided equally. there's no winner take all, but the map turns very favorably towards bernie when we get to washington and california. we will catch and surpass secretary clinton >> polls have clinton ahead by double digits in michigan, and they were all wrong. >> i admire jonathan's spirit, and he's definitely a democratic supporter of whoever wins this contest, but at a time when hillary clinton has a 206-delegate lead over bernie sanders, and when you add the super delegates, it's a significant lied. since iowa and new hampshire, what you've seen is their inability to basically win in states that has a very diverse electorate. and what i mean by diverse,
12:25 am
particularly women of color. if you look at polls that do matter and exit polls, she's doing extremely well with women of color between the ages of 50 and 65. so the challenge, particularly, for bernie sanders' campaign in florida and ohio, which you're absolutely right, is going to be two big states. she's leading in every single state that we're going to have on our super third tuesday as we are calling it, is bernie's ineffectiveness to basically be able to back his rhetoric up with policy decisions and policy votes that appeals to hispanic americans. this is the same bernie sanders that did not actually support true comprehensive immigration reform when he was actually voting. so that's the challenge and something that hispanic voters are going to be paying close attention to. stay with me for attention to the primarieprimaries. that is all day tuesday right
12:26 am
here on cnn. speaking of politics. many of you are sounding off on my twitter page right now about this story. it is one of the more unforgettable moments from the trump campaign so far. a man breaks through a barricade and rushes toward the republican front runner. trump suggested he was linked to isis. what's the real story? next you'll hear what the man had in mind when he made his move. also tea is the world's most popular drink, but the massive industry has dark ties to abuse and human trafficking. coming up, a special report from the cnn freedom project.
12:27 am
12:28 am
12:29 am
12:30 am
welcome back to those of you watching in the states and those of you tuned in all around the globe. it's your last half hour with me, errol barnett. at least 34 people are dead after a powerful car bomb detonated in turkey's capital on sunday the atta. the attackers may be among the dead. there's been no claim yet of responsibility. al qaeda in the islamic maghreb is claiming responsibility for fatal shootings in the ivory coast. gunmen killed 16 people. the same group claimed responsibility for attacks in mali and burkina faso last year. questions about donald trump kept coming up during a cnn town hall for the democratic presidential candidates. hillary clinton and bernie sanders both spent a lot of time
12:31 am
discussing donald trump. clinton said the republican front runner is bigoted. sanders said he is deceitful, calling him a pathological liar. donald trump is hitting the road hard. and he's patting himself on the back for postponing his rally in chicago. >> reporter: days before the florida primary, drum was here rallying a crowd and taking aim at the home state senator marco rubio calling him an absentee politician, but even here in florida, he went after john kasich, and he overall planned events to add an event in ohio, he now thinks that john kasich is a bigger threat to his pro progress on the 15th than marco rubio. trump is coming off a very newsy weekend.
12:32 am
he had to cancel an event on friday after there were so many protesters. the campaign didn't feel like they could go forward. he addressed that in boca last night saying he made the right decision. >>que h we had an interesting w. we went to chicago. we had 25,000 people coming, no, it's okay. we had 25,000 people coming. we had some, i would say they were, let's be nice, protesters, okay? let's call them protesters. and we had a decision to make. we had to make this decision. we want peace. we want happiness. we want everybody to go home really happy, really peaceful, so we said, you know what we'll do? we'll postpone it. and it was a very wise decision. we've been given a lot of credit. >> reporter: now in light of the number of protesters that have been appearing at trump events, we have seen a strong security presence, but in florida last night, there were relatively few
12:33 am
interruptions. >> cnn's sarah murray reporting amid "rocket man." trump described the week as interesting. there was that postponed rally in chicago but also clashes between protesters and supporters in kansas city. police there had to use pepper spray. then there was this incident in ohio. take a look. a student jumped a security barrier and rushed trump. the secret service circled him. he's now set to face criminal charges in court on wednesday. martin savage sat down with him to find out why he did it. >> reporter: was this a spontaneous thing? were you just sort of standing on the sidelines there and then made your -- >> no, for some time, since even back in november, i watched donald trump rallies and was terrified. and i was, like, this, this man is basically having a clan rally
12:34 am
light. and i said this is going to become a problem, that these people have a safe haven to be as boldly racist and violent as they want to be. and, as teime went on, i was right. things have gotten more and more violent to the point now where his people are attacking protesters, using violence and threatening their lives. it was in north carolina where a man attacked another man, a black man, and said he might have to kill him. so it's gotten to a point now where i said i've watched it, i've thought about what i want to do and the image i want to create. and he's in dayton,'s time for me to do this. >> reporter: so you knew ahead of time. >> yes, and i tweeted about it. >> reporter: now he has rights too. those who are there to listen to him have rights. free speech, they have the right to assemble and share ideas. you may not like those ideas, and clearly you don't, but he does have rights. >> and i also have the right to
12:35 am
heckler's veto. i have the right to non-violence civil disobeyed against. >> reporter: but was it non-violent? you made the move toward the stage, it could be perceived as -- >> what do we perceive violence as? is violence running? if we're defining violence as running, yes, i committed violence, but that's all i did. you perceived that violence was going to happen. but it didn't. >> reporter: well, unfortunately, in history, we have seen it has happened. not with you. other candidates, other times in history, people have done things. >> inside, yeah. inside of rallies where there is metal detectors, that you have to get through, i mean -- >> reporter: not in this country i can think of but in others. but that's not the point. i'm just saying it was the perception. what's been the reaction? well, let me back you up. tell me, how did you begin? because i see that video. you are already moving, ayou're
12:36 am
already over the barrier, was it a barrier? >> it looked to me like sort of a gray barricade sort of free-standing thing. and it kind of had the loosely attached at the bottom. >> reporter: you obviously, purposely got yourself in that kind of area. >> yeah, i got there very early in the morning. i waited in line to make sure i would be close to the front. i positioned myself close to the stairs. unfortunately, when donald trump got out of his plane, he showed up an hour late. when he finally got there he got there with maybe ten secret service, 12. and the two that were on my side, one was standing directly in front of me, facing me the whole time. and the other was right behind him with his foot on the stair, so i realized that i wasn't going to be able to go up that way. and to my left there was a six-foot-tall guy. between him theres with a small gap, and i said i'm just going to have to time out the moment when these two -- because they
12:37 am
look around, when these two are looking that way, the guy over here's looking that way, and i'll have a sliver of a chance to run between them. >> reporter: so it was not by a word that donald trump said, it was by the actions of the secret service. >> yeah, i intentionally wanted to run up on stage when he was going to reference chicago. that was my goal. but as the rally began and secret service spread out, i realized throughout the entire rally, that i was going to have to rethink how i was going to get up on stage. >> reporter: mm-hm. so you step over, what, physically, what did you do? >> i put my -- >> reporter: do you remember it? >> yeah. so it didn't go all the way down to the ground. it was maybe like half a foot off the ground. i put my foot on there. it had slits, so i already had like a foot up, and then i just pushed off. i lifted my legs over. >> reporter: and aryou're fooek itti focussed on getting on that stage. >> it's not about donald. i'm focussed on the microphone.
12:38 am
the moment i get up there i can speak and i've robbed him of his speech. it transcends across images on social media, transcends time, even for a moment you can be taken, your power can be taken away from you, that we can keep you from becoming the worst president in the history of the united states. >> reporter: but you didn't even get close. >> i got my hands on the stage. and i think that was enough to show people that there are people out there who aren't afraid. we're not afraid of donald trump. >> reporter: they're more afraid of what you did. you traded one fear for another. >> the people who are afraid of what i did are also afraid of the nation of islam. which, throughout the majority of the world is peaceful. they have their extremists, and we have ours. they're afraid of mexicans. >> reporter: but you created a scary moment, i'm not saying that you're a, you know, you equate on the levels of these people who carry out horrific
12:39 am
crimes. i'm just saying for a fraction of a second, it was a scary moment to see someone making a move to a stage. >> i'd have to disagree with you there. they live in a constant state of fear, him and his followers. that is all he does. he gets them to be afraid of this person. the mexicans. hillary clinton, bernie sanders, socialism. establishment republicans. mexicans, whoever. he has gotten his followers afraid of pretty much everyone that isn't him. so he has all the power. so it didn't matter. it doesn't matter if i hop the fence, if i stand there with a sign. there's, they're there ready to attack at any moment. they're ready to defend themselves, because he has them legitimately believing that their entire way of life, their bank accounts, their homes, their country are all under attack, they're under attack from our government, from isis and islam and mexicans, and it's not true. it's just simply not true.
12:40 am
>> now many of you have strong opinions about what that man did, and the fact that we are even speaking with him. you're telling me your thoughts on twitter. search errol cnn to see. but that was the man who rushed the podium in ohio where trump was speaking saturday, talking to our martin savage. now, a powerful winter storm has left a quarter of a million people in the dark in washington state right now. our meteorologist, pedram javaheri joins us with more. >> this is going to be a memorable winter season for our friends across the northwestern portion of our country, in seattle, conditions there every two out of three days has brought rainfall over this region. now this culminates with a tremendous windstorm. we have a couple disturbances working toward this region. you have the moisture plume diving right into california. that's wonderful news for skiers and snowboarders and for water
12:41 am
reserves, buff tt the winds hav been howling, about 250,000 people without power, with winds as high as 90 miles per hour. and you work your way to seattle, it's a very soggy pattern. some 17 consecutive days where rain has come down at least parts of the day for 17 days. the last time it was dry on the 25th of february. when you compare this with other major cities around the united states, going back over the last 13 to 14 months, places like new york city, boston, chicago, the most they've seen rain in a row, six days. you take a look. some thunderstorms possible on monday. could still get a few showers on tuesday, and then a drier trend returns toward the middle and latter portion of the week, and the temperatures want to moderate out. some good news there. now we take a look at what's happened nationally for the united states, snowfall has been
12:42 am
really nonexistent, especially on the eastern side of the u.s. typically you have tremendous snow coverage. for sunday's date, only 8% of the u.s. has snow on the ground, and it's almost exclusively in the west. across the high sierra, in recent years, you know the snow has been nonexistent. you compare the 13th of march, 11% compared to a year earlier at .1%. now i want to take you over to europe, if you're joining us across europe, look at this massive area of high pressure, blocking any sort of wet weather over the next couple of days. and as this sits in place, the temperatures begin to moderate out across parts of europe and spring in madrid, spring has sprung across this region. the flowers blossoming in full bloom. the temperatures have been mild. the areas indicated in the greens and light blue showing you the mild temperatures of how
12:43 am
far to the north they extend over this region. certainly good news if you're a fan of mild weather. and look at berlin and belgrade. temperatures on the upswing across this region. even moscow makes it to 4 degrees. and spring officially starts on sunday. so for a lot of people, it's starting to feel like it. >> very good. who isn't interested in mild weather at the very least. >> exactly. now many young girls are falling victim to systemic abuse and trafficking within india's tea industry. the cnn freedom project will introduce you to one brave victim who's fighting back, next.

a new expo say is focussing on india's tea industry and the dark secret it harbors. we take you to where they produce the most tea in the world. there the cnn team uncovered a harrowing tale of abuse and one young victim who's briefae brav struggling to stop it. >> reporter: we're driving through one of the world's most beautiful places. a place of winding roads and mountains on the horizon. we're driving through northeast india right now along the foothills of the himalayan mountains. it's one of the major tea producing areas in this country. if you drank a cup of black tea this week, there's a chance it came from here. with hundreds of tea plantations, this region produces more tea than anywhere in the world. as the paved roads give way to

[ speaking in indian ] >> reporter: but she says it was all a lie. the trafficker sent her to delhi, locking her in a house full of young girls just like her, waiting to be sold as domestic labor. that's when she says she saw other girls being sexually abused. when did you first realize what this trafficker was doing to the

girls? were you afraid for your life? like everyone else here, her family are tea pickers. among the hundreds of thousands who pick the tea leaves we drink every day. often they make less than $2 a day. legally, the plantation owners are supposed to provide housing, education, subsidized food and medical care to all their workers. but, as we discovered, she just said there's no electricity. often nobody enforces the rules, leaving thousands of people
