♪ hi. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. thanks so much for joining me this thundershower. i'm robyn curnow. we will get the latest from the cease-fire. we will hear from a victim targeted and newly released police videos document the brutal fatal arrest of green.
2:01 am
details ahead this hour. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom." it is now noon in israeli and gaza. cease-fire between hamas and israeli is well into its second day without any violations reported. but it is an uneasy peace and tensions do remain high. friday prayers at a mosque in jerusalem ended with israeli police sweeping through the plaza in an aggressive show of force. the police said they were respond to go a riot by palestinians and used stun grenades and rubber bullets to drive people out. the report says 20 people were hurt. israeli opened a key border on friday to allow humanitarian aid
2:02 am
into gaza. among the shipment was a mobile hospital. the u.n. announced it is sending more than 22 million of aid including food and medical supplies and covid vaccines. h hadas gold joins us from j jerusalem. the cease-fire is holding. >> the cease-fire has been holding for more than 24 hours. no rockets have been launched from gaza into israeli. there have been no israeli military activity over gaza. that is the most important headline. however we have seen tensions flair between the palestinian and israel police and happened at a what happened on friday there were hundreds of palestinians who gathered to protest to chant in solidarity
2:03 am
with gaza in support of the cease-fire but also in the campaign that proceeded it from gaza. there were flags of the palestinian flags. there was also flags, though, of hamas and palestinian islamic ji jihad. police were responding to people throwing stones and mothese sor of tensions, these sorts of clashes the compound clashes and protests in a neighborhood of east jerusalem where several palestinian families face possible eviction, this helped lead to the latest military. the militants in gaza saying they fired those rockets at jerusalem two weeks ago in response to the tensions in jerusalem. hamas positioning itself as sort of a defender of jerusalem for
2:04 am
the palestinian people. what we saw yesterday, although things calmed down quickly when i was up there on friday afternoon, the situation there around the compound seemed quite calm and everything seemed okay. it goes to show you the tensions are raw here. the cease-fire is holding but goes to show you the underlying issues are still' forefront here in jerusalem. >> with that in mind, how has the last two weeks changed the political situation there on the ground in israeli? >> well, there is political vacuums you can almost call them on both sides because on the palestinian side, elections were postponed shortly before this conflict began. palestinian authority partly placing the blame on israeli saying there is issues over voting in east jerusalem. there have been elections for the palestinians in quite a long time. on the israeli side, actually, the morning that those rockets were fired at jerusalem, i was being briefed by people in the
2:05 am
an anti-benjamin netanyahu block they felt they were weeks away from forming a government and remove prime minister benjamin netanyahu in israeli. the calculations changed because the leader of a small right wing party who was supposed to join that anti--netanyahu block changed his mind and decided not to join that block and that changes the calculations. that doesn't mean that netanyahu now will somehow be able to get the mandate back to try to form a government or that he has the numbers to do so. but what it does mean, it shows that the situation here, the conflict very much can change the political calculations. now what might happen is that if the anti-netanyahu block cannot form a block in the next few days it might go back to the israeli parliament and likelily
2:06 am
israelis are headed to a fifth election and all of that is going on until a new election is in place and prime minister benjamin netanyahu will remain as prime minister. tons of humanitarian aid is arriving in gaza and all supplies needed by the 2 million people there. ben wedeman takes us inside the gaza city to tell us what they are coping with there. >> reporter: this was a home. this was a the kitchen. the mundane trappings of everyday life all gone. this cease-fire is holding and now the people are gaza are able to see what the war has brought. israeli war planes bombed buildings on a street in gaza city, killing more than 40 people according to the health ministry here.
2:07 am
two of this man's daughters were killed. he says the israeli army gave no warning. our souls to them are cheaper than a phone call, he says. they could have called and said, vatican the building. you want to hit tunnels? hit them. but you have to warn us. israeli claims it was targeting tunnels in the neighborhood and collapsing the buildings was unintended. those buildings are now jagged mounds of concrete and metal, littered with the odds and ends of lives lost, lives ruined. i thought that's it! i'm going to die says a teacher who lives down the street. i felt judgment day had come! members of hamas military wing parade by the ruins of a war they claim to have emerged from victorious. four wars in 13 years haven't shaken the group's grip on power, as life in gaza has gone
2:08 am
from bad to worse. gaza has been under an israeli/egyptian blockade since 2007. the tap water is undrinkable and unemployment at nearly 50% all of that made worse by this war. israeli calls it occasionally operations in gaza mowing the lawn, cutting hamas down to size. sometimes, however, it looks like it's throwing gaza back into the pre-industrial age. yet, for the first time, in 11 days, life resumed a semblance of normalcy. there is no longer a need to hide -- for now. ben wedeman, cnn, gaza. reports of antisemitic attacks is on the rise. can the percentage fragile
2:09 am
cease-fire put an end to the growing violence? we will have a report on that coming up later. many u.s. presidents have been confronted by the difficult situation in the middle east and joe biden is no exception. phil mattingly has more on how he navigated a path to a cease-fire. >> reporter: for president biden, it was a week that served as a split screen of sorts. what the administration wants to focus on in its foreign policy and what it inevitably was going to have to focus on at least at some point in his foreign policy. as for the latter? that was obviously the conflict in the middle east. an explosion over the course of 11-day period that led to the deaths of hundreds and fighting between israeli and hamas. where that ended up with the president? well, it was days of what the white house said repeatedly was quiet, but intensive diplomat diplomacy in a press conference on friday the president made clear he thought was clearer in reaching an outcome in a much
2:10 am
m shorter outcome than the last time in 2014 and gave insight with nabenjamin netanyahu. keep in mind they have known each more than 40 years and some said has a level of trust and friendship. biden called netanyahu six different times and the tone particularly towards the end shifted with the president taking a harder line with the prime minister. this is how biden framed things. >> what i can assure you the last time it took 56 days and 62 months to get a cease-fire, i'm fraying this cease-fire will hold. i take b.b. netanyahu when he gives me his word. he has never broken his word to me. >> reporter: biden suspects the u.s. will play a role in provide significant humanitarian aid to the gaza area and trying to ensure what was damaged or destroyed over the course of the 11-day period is rebuild or at
2:11 am
least has the funds to do so, while also ensuring that hamas gets no access to those funds. that is always a difficult needle to thread but what the president laid out. it's important to note the president was meeting with the south korean president. the first leader by the japanese. >> reporter: president. the indo pacific is where they want focus the focus. they want to focus on a rising china. they want to focus on increasingly competitive china and u.s. allies in that region. that was the genesis for having the south korean president to the white house.
2:12 am
nuclearization of the north korea. he has made clear he wants a different approach than other predecessors he wants to see how things go and when asked if he was still willing to meet with kim jong-un the president didn't take it off the table and made clear he was in a different place than former president trump saying his teams would have to have a sense where kim jong-un stood on his nuclear arsenal and where north korea planned to go in changing the directions of things but didn't take it off the table. some sense where the president stands in a crucial region in the issue an issue the president named the gravest security threat he was taking as president. he named a special enjoy to north korea and sng the south
2:13 am
korea president. this week a reminder while it's still occurring and definitely the administration's focus old areas of conflict, old areas that have bedeviled previous administrations, well, they, obviously, aren't going away any time soon. phil mattingly, cnn, the white house. during that summit with south korea's president, mr. biden announced that the u.s. will provide covid vaccinations. more than 500,000 service members. for that i want to go straight to paula hancocks and she is in seoul. that must have been met with welcome relief? >> absolutely. we have heard from the south korean president and they want to wrap up the vaccination program in south korea. the rollouts have been slow. to this point over 3% of the population have had both of their doses and just over 7% has
2:14 am
actually had just one of the doses. so, clearly, this is a concern from the south korean side that they are not able to ramp up the program as much as they would like. president moon saying the global vaccine is tight and welcome that 550,000 south korean military personnel will be vaccinated and those who work alongside and closely with american troops based here. the two leaders said they would have an established a comprehensive vaccine partnership. they wanted to make sure the second half of this year and next year, they could produce a further billion doses of vaccine. president moon saying the u.s. has the tech knowledge and south korea has the production.
2:15 am
it will be interesting to see how they work together in the future. and what they want to do both sides said was to scale up the global vaccine supply. president moon saying he wants to be very much involved in that saying that south korea has that capability to produce more vaccines. but at this point the actual rollout here in this country has been fairly slow. >> thank you for that, paula hancocks in seoul. more states are looking to follow arizona's lead where a questionable order to the 2020 election results is under way. we will take a closer look at that. also the family of this man was told he died in a car crash during a police chase. videos obtained by cnn show the truth is very different and even more horrific. ♪ ♪ every spray ♪ ♪ every day ♪ ♪ dove and degree fund local youth programs. ♪ every day u does good ♪ unilever

more than six months after the u.s. presidential elect a ballot is elected to moved forward in georgia even though they have already scanned their ballots. that upheld the election results that president biden won the state but not pushing from
2:20 am
donald trump to push for orders there and other states after his loss. a judge in henry county judge has ruled that absentee ballots in fulton county board can be unsealed and revealed. in arizona a controversial order of the 2020 election results is taking place in the biggest county there. there have been two audits there and both show joe biden won. some claim wild conspiracy theories for this. >> reporter: you can connect the dots between this high school auditorium in wyndham, new hampshire. a right wing gubernatorial candidate in georgia. >> i found myself troubled by the recent findings coming out of arizona. >> reporter: and michigan secretary of state talking to me in phoenix. are you hearing the exact words arizona style audit being thrown
2:21 am
around in michigan? >> yes. we are hearing that, as well as forensic audit. >> reporter: i'm talking to you from a parking lot. you're saying what we are seeing here is also there? >> well, what we are seeing in arizona is really a high-water mark of this sort of the big lie. >> reporter: benson says arizona is where the next chapter of the big lie is being written. that lie that the 2020 election was stolen from donald trump centers on what you're seeing on the silent unmoving overhead security video. these trailers hold nearly 2.1 million, 2020 ballots from arizona's maricopa county. while in storage now? a so-called audit of these ballots run by the republican-controlled arizona senate and little known siber ninjas will restart this weekend after ballots are moved back onto the floor. the last several weeks showing ballots being chasen by a secret water mark and cameras hunting
2:22 am
for bamboo fibers that they were flown in from asia. comical but dangerous. are you guys the petri dish? >> absolutely. we see the videos from other states where they are demanding an arizona style audit. >> i think it's a proxy war for this playing out on a national level. so i guess, yeah, we are the experiment in democracy here in arizona. >> reporter: richer and gates are lifelong republicans that are speaking out against their state party leadership as they watch trump loyalists question the vote in new hampshire corey lewandowski. they are urging republicans both state and national to fight back with the truth. you've seen the polls of what republican voters believe. have you already lost? >> the answer is absolutely not.
2:23 am
if we start to have voices of republicans saying joe biden was elected president, he won, we are not moving, we are not going to do this any longer, we are not going to have arizona style so-called audits in other states, you will see those numbers start to change. >> reporter: michigan secretary of state says the more successful these partisan efforts are today, you will see it in 2022 and 2024. ka kyung lah, cnn, phoenix, arizona. trump's big lie about the election is becoming more and more entrenched as a political strategy by republicans. how dangerous? how much more effective could it be in discrediting biden and the vote? >> i think that it's, you know, it's clearly mobilizing a
2:24 am
strong, but colselect, group of voters. part of it is to do with donald trump himself now is becoming more visible and continuing to perpetuate that. it gives some people, i think, something to really focus on. i think the question really going forward is to what extent the interventions that the current administration is making, whether it is on stimulus checks, whether it's on infrastructure, whether these things begin to resonate with ordinary voters in a way that can, you know, shift the attention towards a productive and foreign looking agenda. but i think really the disinformation and the mobilization by certain members of the republican party is so entrenched that it looks like this is going to run for a while and it's clearly and also affecting efforts to rethink and relegislate on how the vote will actually take place in future
2:25 am
elections. so it's very destructive and clearly very divisive. but i think it will recede as the country moves forward and opens up and there are further investments in ordinary people. >> let's talk about that. mr. biden is compromising with his infrastructure counterproposal. how effective do you think he will be on that? >> this is very interesting to watch because, clearly, president biden has decided two things. one, is that he will get that infrastructure, that jobs plan through. but, secondly, a political strategy here that is going to take some part of it and forge a bipartisan consensus it might be go through in two separate packages and part of the republicans are supporting. infrastructure we know is something has had bipartisan support for a long time. donald trump was behind it. he didn't deliver it but he certainly advocated for it. i think biden sees if he can get
2:26 am
some of that through with bipartisan support, the rest, you know, on a single party line vote, he can still then claim that the republicans and the democrats are behind this. i think that will go some way to beginning to, you know, to shift the narrative, because forging that bipartisanship is going to be absolutely critical for what we have just talked about, right? which is shifting the narrative away from this being just completely polarized and divided politics in washington. >> let's talk about foreign policy. i know that our reporters have said that mr. biden wants to focus and has been very open about wanting to focus on asia and arising china but the palestinians have dominated the past two weeks. how do you think he did in managing his first middle east policy test? >> yeah. i mean, this was, clearly, perhaps not what president biden was having expecting to deal with in the last 11 years -- 11 days. i think that the world's
2:27 am
attention and focus was galvanized on this -- on this conflict, on the extreme violence. president biden, i think, you know -- the administration was clearly attempting to pursue a quiet diplomacy which, in some ways, stands, you know, at contrast with the very public attention that it's focused on, democracy, on human rights, on diplomacy and this instance, because of the very tricky position that america is in with greater pressure now to have a more even hand toward the palestinians but still a very clear commitment to israeli, president biden decided to move slowly, quietly to obstruct any movement in the u.n. security council. what bevwe have seen there is a cease-fire. i think now the question is whether the investment in
2:28 am
dip diplomacy is enough to move that conflict towards a more durable piece. a very high and tall order. it's something that donald trump promised and absolutely failed to deliver on. but i think a lot of people, you know, will judge the result in due course by how long the cease-fire lasts and how long it transforms. i think there is a lot of feeling that joe biden didn't move fast enough. his overt diplomacy and condemnation of the disproportionate killings were not forthcoming but nonetheless i think a lot will come down to the result and again, how much the investment in that diplomacy works. right now, it looks like a short-term success but a very difficult one with a lot of people having died. >> always good to see you and thank you for joining us. >> thank you. still ahead, anti-semitic

welcome back to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. great to have you along this hour. it's 32 minutes past the hour. the newly minted cease-fire between israeli and hamas appears to be holding. this is now day two of that fragile peace. desperate humanitarian aid rolling in gaza on friday after
2:33 am
israeli opened a border crossing. the u.s. says it's sending more than 22 million of food and vaccine supplies to the gaza people. on friday, a mosque in jerusalem, israeli police swept through the compound firing stun grenades and rubber bullets to drive out people. the palestinian reports 20 people were hurt. a spike in the tax on jewish americans is reported across the u.s. as tensions flare over the conflict half a world away. some of these incidents have been captured on camera. we warn you some of what you are about to see can be disturbing. >> reporter: pro-palestinian demonstrations turned violent. in new york city, a 29-year-old man wearing a.
2:34 am
>> they were whaling on my head and beating on me and cowarding for covered. >> reporter: one is facing numerous charges including one related to a hate crime according to a law enforcement source. in los angeles, police investigating a possible hate crime after a pro-palestinian demonstration turned violent with some protesters shouting death to jews and israeli kills children. one witness telling cnn pro-palestinian protesters started throwing bottles and one asking diners seated outside who was jewish. a fragile cease-fire between israeli and hamas may bring the temperature down here, but protests and allegations of anti-semitism on a sharp rise according to the anti-defamation league. in vegas, miami, tucson, and long island, protesters and report of hate crimes as tension and violence a half a world away continues to incite anger here.
2:35 am
>> we are literally tracking more than 50% increase in anti-semitic acts over the past week. >> reporter: the council on islamic relations say there have been incidents of violence against muslims as well and condemns anyone on any side of an issue who engaged in hate speech intimidation or violence. new york police say that 26 individuals were arrested. some of them pro-palestinians and others pro-israelis and both sides believe if that cease-fire in the middle east can take root that the violence and the anger here in the u.s. will decrease. back to you. >> the 29-year-old victim you saw in that report gave a detailed account of the attack to cnn's don lemon. joseph says he was in sheer survival mode while on the ground being beaten and pepper sprayed by his attackers. here is part of that interview. >> it was ironic. i had gone to, you know, there
2:36 am
was a rally called for at 47th and 7th. as there was last week. i went to this rally last week. i was there. i wore my head covering and i was there upwards two or three hours without any major issues. here and there there qo be an incident. for the most part it was pretty peaceful. last night another rally called for and i got off the subway at 57th and 7th. same routine walking to the rally. honestly texting my friends i'll be there in a few minutes, see you soon. next thing you know, out of the corner of my eye i see someone chasing me from behind and before i could react i was surrounded by a crowd of people who proceeded to beat me down. after the fact, preparer spray and mace me. as soon as they were on top of me attacking me, i was literally fell to the ground protecting my head and my face and doing what i could to ensure that honestly my main thought was to survive at that particular time and make it out alive. we will see what happens next.
2:37 am
and thankfully the nypd showed up within a few minutes and dispersed the crowd and apprehended one of the suspects. i'll be honest at the hospital, i met with some of the highest levels of the hate crime unit and they seem pretty intent on doing more research and more diligence and figuring out everyone who was involved so i'm very thankful for that as well. >> cnn has obtained new video of a deadly encounter between a black man and police officers in the u.s. state of louisiana. ronald green's family says they were told he died in a car crash during a police chase two years ago. but the video shows a completely different and horrifying story. we warn up the video is disturbing to watch and the case is under a civil rights investigation involving the fbi and the department of justice and the attorney's office. here is ryan young. >> reporter: newly obtained video by cnn shows images of ronald green's last moments while in custody of louisiana state police in may of 2019.
2:38 am
>> why did you run? you were speeding a little bit and run a red light. >> reporter: the video shows what appears to be a supervising officer arriving on scene engaging with responding officers while green remains cuffed on the ground face down. >> [ screaming ] >> yes, yes. >> reporter: after an early video shows him being beaten and tased, police claiming green had resisted arrest after attempting to pull him over. in the video, we hear green in distress as he continued to be retrained by officers. >> spitting blood. >> reporter: minutes after the supervisor engaged with officers medical aid is taking course and
2:39 am
green unresponsive. the car video shows green's vehicle that sustained damage. lee merritt says -- >> this was a supervisor who showed up at the scene. he didn't even acknowledge ronald on the ground. >> reporter: green's family said they were originally told the cause of death was a car crash following a high-speed pursuit. >> this has been a cover-up from the very moment it happened. my son was not meant to walk away from that. he was purposely killed. he was murdered. >> reporter: they are investigating ronald green's death as a criminal matter the same night of the incident. two officers involved in the accident were reprimanded. no incident reports were
2:40 am
provided to the medical examiner despite requests' no medical records were provided and neither was detailed information about the car crash. >> they were left in the dark. they were stonewalled by the state police, which, again, is another policy that shows how systemic this is. >> reporter: the report also states that lacerations on green's head most consistent from multiple impacts from a blunt object. >> i'm sorry! i'm sorry! [ laughter ] >> reporter: we know video has been released from all of the body cam so we will be able to go through that piece-by-piece. this is what the family has been asking for. transparency. it's been two years since their loved one lost their life and still there is a lot of questions about how this investigation will move forward. ryan young, cnn, atlanta. cnn continues in a moment. ♪ every bubble ♪ ♪ every scrub ♪ ♪ every spray ♪ ♪ every day ♪ ♪ dove and degree fund local youth programs.

taiwan is racing to find more covid vaccines as it faces its worst outbreak since the pandemic began. even with new restrictions put in place more than 320 new infections were reported on saturday. almost all of the cases were locally transmitted. less than 1% of taiwan's population is being inoculated and the supply is running low. the island is now asking for the u.s. to donate some of its doses from overseas. spain is rolling out the red carpet for british and japanese travelers. starting on monday, visitors from those countries will be able to enter spain without health controls. british travelers will have to quarantine for ten days when they return home to the uk. but germany, on the other hand, will require travelers from the uk to quarantine for two weeks before entering the country. that begins at midnight saturday. german officials designated britain and northern ireland a
2:45 am
virus variant region. let's get more on this with our reporting. hi. i wonder if you could decode all of that? particularly for uk travelers who might be a little bit confused. >> reporter: yeah. understandably so. west look. summer months are upon us. uk travelers who went through weeks of a very strict confinement and see low covid rates in this country understandably want to travel and traveling has been authorized for a week now with three-colored system, green, amber, and red, with countries they can either go to without having to quarantine upon their return or go to and have to quarantine or not go at all. on the flip side of the story you have european nations who are in spain's case looking at the positive news out of the uk which is high vaccination rate and low covid rate and germany who are looking at the less positive news which is a variant of concern has been found in the
2:46 am
uk. they are being more cautious. the difference between spain which is opening its borders to uk travelers and germany, which is now imposing a strict two-week quarantine on uk travelers one is highly dependent on tourism and wants to see the uk tourists come in and the other not so highly dependent upon tourism and germany and not exactly a sunshine destination. even though european union nations are adopting a common travel policy and announced that just this week, already we are seeing that each individual country is, of course, allowed to make decisions based on its own national interests and they do so. that's why spain is opening up the british travelers and germany isn't. >> recently, you also reported about a huge indoor party held to examine the risk of covid transmission in a crowded environment. i'm fascinated to know what was learned by this. >> this is really interesting.
2:47 am
the uk held a series of pilot events before they opened up all crowded events, concerts, clubs, sporting events, et cetera. so they held a series of events and on average 60,000 people attended and now we can tell you that 15 individuals got covid in the days that followed those events which doesn't mean that they were infected at those events, right? because they, obviously, carry on with their lives. 15 out of 60,000 is a rate of infection is well below what you would see in the average population. the conclusion that it is possible to bring back large crowds safely. now how was it done? because if you remember those events, i don't know if we can bring up those pictures and especially of that nightclub in liverpool. no social distancing and no face masks. how do you do that? you test people before they come in. if you bring covid-free people come in and test them to make
2:48 am
sure they are covid-free you can limit to almost zero the infection. >> that is great news. thank you for that report. as pandemic restrictions ease in many parts of the world, most people are looking for some kind of return to normal. but there is nothing normal about europe's weirdest musical event. ♪ ♪ i came here to dance dance alone dance alone ♪ >> hero vision returns later today after being cancelled last year. the song contest features performers representing 26 countries. tens of millions of fans are expected to watch the broadcast. 3,500 covid-19 tested fans will watch in an arena. past winners including celine dion. the bbc recently apologized
