>> she wanted to show camilla that she was the prize. >> diana was taken and put into a gilded cage. >> diana was clearly going downhill. >> what your heart wants isn't the same as what the system wants for you. >> honor and keep him in sickness and in health so long as you both shall live? and a warm welcome to our viewers here in the united states and right around the world. i'm paula newton. ahead on "cnn newsroom," a diplomatic problem brewing. venezuela's apparent retaliation after president maduro's alleged money man was extradited to the united states to face charges. we now know the identity of the man accused of killing a british mp as police continue to investigate a possible extremist motivation behind the stabbing. and go where no mission has gone before.
12:01 am
the u.s. taking the space race to the next level by exploring the beginnings of the solar system . first, we have new details on a breaking story that we've been covering out of haiti. an ohio-based group called christian aid ministries has confirmed that 17 missionaries and family members abducted in haiti on saturday are affiliated with it. that comes in a report from "the washington post." a source in haiti security services told us earlier that 14 adults and three minors were kidnapped north of port-au-prince. we have more details now that we spoke to matt rivers a little earlier, take a listen. >> reporter: so this is basically very much an ongoing situation at this point. what i can tell you is that we
12:02 am
were doing stories about kidnappings months ago when we were there after the haitian president was assassinated back on july 7th. and this has been an issue that has plagued haiti for a long time, but this year specifically, a significant spike in kidnappings. i have a couple of statistics i can read for you. since january, at least 628 kidnappings have taken place, 29 of whom before this latest kidnapping, 29 of whom were foreigners. that's according to data from a nonprofit group that tracks this stuff in port-au-prince. these gangs that do this, they are looking for ransom money, which they are often paid, sometimes to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. depending on which analyst you speak to, 50% of port-au-prince is in the control, in the hands of gangs. so it is an extremely dangerous time for people right now in port-au-prince. port-au-prince and this latest kidnapping is just further proof
12:03 am
of a horrific situation right now in that country's capital. >> and our thanks to matt rivers who will continue to bring us updates on that story. now to the uk where a government source tells cnn the suspect in the fatal stabbing of m paradorn srichaphan david amos is ali haribi ali. he's described as a 25-year-old british national of somali heritage. police are treating the case as a terrorist incident and crown prosecutors say they are supporting the guest investigation. the fate attack, the second in five years against a member of parliament, as heightened security concerns for all lawmakers. prime minister boris johnson and labor leader er kier stommer their respects at the church where the minister was murdered. "a much-loved colleague and friend." cnn's salma abdelaziz joins from
12:04 am
us london. it was an important show of unity there yesterday. but also, you know, the issue that we do have more information on the investigation, what more do we know, especially now that the suspect has been identified? >> reporter: what we know so far that is counterterrorism police are investigating this individual. they are speaking to him. but we also are waiting for more information about the motivation, because the authorities say there is a potential motivation linked to islamic terrorism. we don't know anything further than that at this time. but this was a truly brutal crime that happened in a very quiet seaside community in broad daylight at a church. it sent this area of lyonsee absolutely reeling. people said they want his life remembered, not the way he died. take a look.
12:05 am
david amos doing what he loved most, serving his community. >> these people have proved that music is magic and that dreams can come true. >> reporter: he helped organize this event in 2019, where 200 people with learning disabilities performed at the famous royal albert hall. it was a dream he accomplished with his friend of 25 years, david stanley. >> i think sir david amos was probably the proudest he'd ever been, and he was in his element at that moment, telling the audience that we've done it, we've achieved our goal. ♪ >> reporter: stanley teaches music to people with disabilities. as news of the brutal stabbing broke, he was with his students. >> some becoming aware of what had happened, as we always do, and david knew this, we use
12:06 am
music to somehow come to terms with what was happening. on that friday afternoon. ♪ >> reporter: the 69-year-old passionately represented south end and essex for four decades. elected to parliament in 1983, he was one of britain's longest-serving mps. amos was a conservative but seen as a moderate voice at a time of divisive politics. >> i would ask my right honorable friend if he would find time for a debate on world animal day. >> reporter: the father of five was also a dedicated animal welfare advocate and a huge dog lover. he was also fiercely dedicated to the needs of his constituents. his friend, father jeff, told us -- >> he was just so easy to like. if he wanted something done, you just had to ask sir david amos and you could bet your bottom
12:07 am
dollar that would happen. yeah, you really could. >> reporter: now the father consoling a heartbroken community. >> we are carrying this together. there is not an individual loss. the community, we must grieve together. >> reporter: grieve and come to terms with the life of a public servant extinguished too soon. what was so special, his friends say, about david amos, was that he didn't seem interested in climbing the political ladder. as you heard, almost four decades of service to one community, his community. and that's what's at stake here, paula, because the conversation across this country is about much bigger than this incident. it's about the safety of lawmakers. it's about their ability to do their jobs and get home unharmed at the end of the day. some of them saying that this attack is not just an attack on one lawmaker, but on the democratic process as a whole. because this is something this country holds very dear,
12:08 am
especially on a local level, the right of a politician to sit with his constituents and hear the issues of the day. is that now under threat, paula? will that tradition continue in this country? that's the question being asked right now. >> so interesting that a few of the mps actually went back in the last 24 hours to those surgeries or what we would call open office hours. salma, thank you for the update, appreciate it. a close ally of embattled venezuelan strong man nicholas merdudo has been taken into custody. >> reporter: five citizens and a u.s. prerm nent resident who were serving house arrest in caracas in venezuela were picked up by the country's security service on saturday, just hours after alex saab, a key colombian financier who worked really
12:09 am
close with embattled leader nicolas maduro was extradited from cape verde to the united states, first arrested in 2020. saab faces charges of money laundering in florida related to his activity as a government contractor in venezuela. the men detained in caracas are known collectively as the sit cosix. they are former executives of u.s. oil refinery citgo, under arrest in venezuela since 2017. they're facing corruption charges which they deny, and they were moved to house arrest just in april this year. one of them was able to send a video message to his family shortly before his detention. >> translator: we are here working this video because at this time, we and our families are very worried. we don't know what's going to happen to us now that alex saab
12:10 am
has been extradited. we are very worried, and our families are very worried. >> reporter: saab is now expected to face a u.s. court in the coming weeks. covid vaccination numbers are slowly ticking up in the united states. as of saturday, nearly 57% of the population had been fully vaccinated. now that's about two-thirds of everyone who is actually eligible. and more americans could soon qualify for vaccine boosters. on friday, an fda advisory panel recommended boosters for all adults who have received the one-dose johnson & johnson vaccine. experts say those who did should get an extra shot as soon as it's available. the cdc needs to weigh in now, though, before it makes a final decision. public health officials of also considering whether to mix and match boosters. here's the director of the national institutes of health.
12:11 am
>> there was data presented yesterday from nih about the mix and match question. and there was data that suggested if you are going to get a booster for j&j, maybe getting a moderna or pfizer booster would actually have some advantages in terms of giving you an even stronger immune response. so don't run out, anybody who got j&j. i would wait another week right now and see what cdc's advisory committee does with this next week. and by maybe a week from today, i'll tell my grandkids what i think they ought to do. >> dr. peter droevac is an infectious disease specialist at university of oxford and joins from us oxford, england. really good to see you. we keep turning the pages on this pandemic quite quickly. we're at boosters now. there is a lot of conflicting information about whether or not they are even truly needed. i mean, from your survey of the
12:12 am
recent studies, what do you think? how vigilant should people be, especially if they are more than six months out, on any vaccine? >> new data coming in all the time. so we're learning as we go here. it really depends on your risk and your age group. i think at this point the data are pretty strong, particularly for those who are immune compromised, and those over 65, that there is evidence of the immunity waning and there's a strong evidence base to get a booster. with johnson & johnson it's a little bit different. i think the preponderance of the evidence is suggesting to us that perhaps it really should have been a two-dose vaccine in the first place, and that the single dose had a little bit lower efficacy than some of the other vaccines. so it may well be that as the advisory panel recommended last week, that everybody, at least every adult who's had the j&j vaccine, should go ahead and get a second dose. but it might just be appropriate to think of that as a two-jab course like the pfizer and
12:13 am
moderna vaccines. so it is a confusing time at the moment. the most important thing is to remember that we have really good evidence that vaccines work, and first and foremost for those people who have not yet been vaccinated, the most important data i saw in the last week from the cdc suggested that the unvaccinated are six times more likely to die, 11 times more likely to get infected with covid-19, than those who are vaccinated, across all age groups. we need to get people vaccinated. >> the studies are definitive, it seems, on a lot of that data in terms of the risk. yet so many people who are fully vaccinated are still worried about those breakthrough cases, which is why boosters certainly seem to be a topic of conversation of many people right now, even if fully vaccinated. >> that's right. we have to remember, even though we see a little bit of evidence of waning efficacy with some of the jabs after about six months, they still do provide very good
12:14 am
protection, well above 80% for the pfizer and moderna vaccines, for example. and very, very, very good protection against severe disease, hospitalization, and death. so it's still extremely rare, particularly for those under the age of 65, for a fully vaccinated individual to get infected with covid-19 and get very sick or die. you can get infected but it tends to be a milder course. so across the board we're seeing these vaccines do provide extraordinary protection, and you still need to be cautious about covid-19 and getting infected, but your risk of severe disease and death is really minimal if you have been vaccinated. >> and it is that tough decision, the fact that maybe you're fully vaccinated and you still need to take those precautions, whether it's masking, social distancing, or only doing the essential activities. i want to ask you, in fact, about something we hear a lot about but is very difficult for someone untrained to understand. how worried are you now about
12:15 am
the way this virus is developing and whether or not another variant may still be out there that will escape the defenses of the vaccine? i know we've spoken about this over and over again. but there are some people wondering as to whether this is truly the end. >> yeah, well first off, i think at this point most of us agree that sars covid 2, the covid-19 virus, is becoming endemic, meaning it will be in circulation, it's not going to go away, it's something we're going to have to letter to live with and have vaccines for, et cetera. six months ago we were worried about all kinds of variant that seemed to be popping up. what's happened recently is the delta variant, because it is so transmissible, has outcompeted all the other variants, including some of the variants that had a bit more evidence of vaccine escape. at the moment, the delta variant is the dominant variant everywhere and we're not seeing other variants really have a chance of out-competing.
12:16 am
that doesn't mean the risk doesn't exist. and the bottom line is that the more virus is in circulation anywhere in the world, the more cases that we're seeing, the more chances that a random mutation may lead to an advantage and emergence of a new variant. every new case is a lottery ticket for the virus to produce a variant, so we need to remain vigilant about that. but at the moment, delta remains dominant everywhere. >> i like the way you put that. a lottery ticket issue. i have been -- this thing has been very complicated. a lot of people have been trying to put their hands around it, and it's important to be able to lean on experts like you dr. peter droebeck, thank you very much. some european countries are seeing a backlash against covid restrictions. in italy people protesting the so-called green pass requirements for work there's took effect on friday. the pass shows proof of vaccination, a negative test result, or recent recovery from the virus.
12:17 am
there were also protests in switzerland. a pass is required there to enter bars, restaurants, and fitness centers. meantime, argentina has started vaccinating children as young as 3. right now the rollout is focused on children with weakened immune systems and other high-risk conditions. covid cases are unfortunately surging in russia. on saturday the government reported more than 1,000 deaths for the first time ever. for more we are joined by cnn's nada bashir in london. the breaking of the record is so tragic, yet things could still get worse. case loads continue to climb. what is the fear in russia now? >> reporter: there is major concern that over the next few weeks and months, this concerning trend could continue, particularly as we head into the winter months. as you mentioned, the data that we received from russian authorities in the last few days has been worrying, an upward trend in the number of deaths
12:18 am
and cases as of saturday. in the last 24 hours, 1,002 deaths recorded, a record high. there are serious concerns but also in the spread of coronavirus, the number of cases reaching record levels, 33,208 new cases announced on saturday. so that is the picture that we're seeing now in russia. but what is of more concern is that low vaccine uptick. just over 30% of the country getting the coronavirus vaccine jab. and that is a worry, because as we enter those winter months and tend to go indoors more, engaging in indoor activities, the seasonal flu virus is spreading, there are concerns that we will see an increase in the number of people getting coronavirus. particularly with this low vaccine uptick, but also as a result of more transmissible variants like the delta variant. of course this will be the first winter we're going into with this delta variant. there are serious concern ts. russian president vladimir putin has urged citizens to get the
12:19 am
coronavirus vaccine, speaking on tuesday saying citizens should listen to the medical advice, the medical experts, and get that jab. we've seen other countries in europe battling this vaccine hesitancy, although on a smaller scale than russia. there are concerns from governments across the continent that health care sectors in europe could be put under renewed pressure come winter. countries like italy, switzerland, france introducing tougher measures, vaccine passes allowing people to prove that they've had either a full jab or have recently recovered from coronavirus, or even have taken and received a negative test in the last 48 hours. this is all part of efforts to really control the spread of the virus, to stem the spread of the virus, and prevent the health care sector and the country from falling under the pressures we've seen in the last few months of this pandemic. >> unfortunately, especially with the delta variant, even if a small portion of the population isn't vaccinated, it can overwhelm the hospitals.

a manhunt is under way in houston, texas, for a gunman who opened fire on three police officers outside a sports bar on friday. one deputy was killed in the ambush, two others were wounded. cnn's jean casarez reports. >> reporter: we were told this happened about 2:12 this morning at a houston sports bar in the parking lot. deputies were called to that parking lot because of something that was going on. they believed it was a robbery. they thought they had the person that was responsible. they were in the midst of arresting the person. the person was on the ground, they were right there, and all of a sudden, we are told, someone came from around the car with an ar-15 assault rifle and began shooting at the deputies. one was shot in the back, the other shot, who has succumbed to the injuries, then another deputy came out because of hearing what was happening and was shot in the leg with
12:25 am
multiple leg fractures. we do know the identities of the officers. first of all, kareem atkins. he was 30 years old. he just got back from paternity leave. he leaves a wife and a 2-month-old baby. darrell garrett. he is 28 years old. he was shot in the back. he has been in surgery for much of today. he is now in the intensive care unit. and finally, jaquaim bartham, 26 years old, a member of the force since 2019. these officers, they worked together, they knew each other, they were buddies, we are told. i want you to listen how the constable, mark herman, talks about what one was told just before he was wheeled into surgery this morning. >> he found out laying, bleeding out on a gurney that his buddy head just been with was deceased. but i can tell you, all three of

them, they worked the same area, they're good friends. it's just a complete tragedy is what it is. >> reporter: the criminal investigation continues. the deputy that did succumb to his injuries, his body is at the harris county medical examiner's office. >> that was cnn's jean casarez reporting. and the tragic death of that deputy comes on a poignant day for law enforcement. the annual national memorial service for fallen police officers was held in the nation's capital on saturday. during the service, president joe biden noted the deadly shooting in texas, saying, we mourn the fallen and pray for the wounded. he also hailed the police officers who protected the capitol during the july 6th insurrection. >> nine months ago, your brothers and sisters thwarted an unconstitutional and fundamentally unamerican attack

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states, i'm paula newton and you are watching "cnn newsroom." 60 years ago, nazi officer adolf eichmann, known as the architect of the holocaust, was on trial in israel charged with organizing an unthinkable genocide under hitler during world war ii. millions around the world watched the trial on tv as survivors and witnesses described the unspeakable horrors he orchestrated and that they lived through. elie honig is a cnn senior legal analyst and former u.s. federal pros prosecutor. his grand parents lived through that dark period of history. he sat down with key participants in the trial to talk about their quest still,
12:32 am
today, for justice and the threat anti-semitism and ethnic hatred still pose today. >> reporter: 60 years ago, the world saw evil. in 1961, millions of people across the globe watched as adolf eichmann, the notorious nazi official known as the architect of the holocaust, stood trial in jerusalem for crimes against humanity. >> but i do remember it happening, and i remember more the aspect of -- i think i -- it struck me as more, they got this guy. and i remember from that point on, it certainly -- people began to understand what this was about. >> reporter: 11 months earlier is where mossad agents had captured eichmann in argentina, where he'd been living as a fugitive for a decade. they brought him to jerusalem to face justice for his role in the
12:33 am
systematic execution of more than 6 million jews during world war ii. >> your grandma is here. she's the fourth from the right pier. >> the vast majority of the people in this picture did not survive. >> reporter: my father, the son of two holocaust survivors, remembers the trial as a turning point. >> you have to understand, now everyone knows the holocaust, capital "h." when we grew up, this was not a thing. the holocaust was not a thing. it was a private tragedy, it was a -- it was a tragedy of the jewish people. so a lot of it wasn't spoken about. until eichmann. >> you together with others during the period 1939 to 1945 caused the killing of millions of jews in capacity as a person responsible for the execution of the nazi plan for the physical extermination of the jews, known as the final solution of the jewish problem.
12:34 am
>> gabriel bach, now 94 years old, was one of the prosecutors who tried eichmann in israel's newly formed court system. >> the courtroom, we had a special room where all the prosecutors sat together and the defense counsel sat together. and then they had -- in order to protect the accused, they had a special glass booth where he was kept. this was really a very, very special moment, that here in a jewish state, a jewish trial, we are representatives of the jewish people. and we can show that the men who murdered millions of people from our society, that this was very, very justifiable and very just that we should do that and not leave it to the court of another country. >> reporter: it was one of the first televised trials the world had ever seen. and it was a pivotal moment in
12:35 am
the world's reckoning with the genocide perpetrated by the nazis. >> translator: i was about 16 when the nazis took over. in july 1942, my parents and my sister were taken onto a train. we did not know where, at the time, but later found out it was the belzach extermination camp. my sister was 10 years old. the last time i saw them was my birthday, and i saw them for 15 minutes. >> reporter: like my grandmother, michael goldman gilad, now 96 years old, lost most of his family to the holocaust. he survived the horrors of multiple concentration camps, including auschwitz, and he survived the infamous death march. >> translator: it was january 18th, 1945. we were taken out in rows of 1,000 each, and there were ss
12:36 am
officers with dogs, and we were made to march. it was heavy snow, and it seemed implausible, but we marched 60 kilometers that night. >> reporter: thousands of people died during that brutal death march. little did goldman gilad know he would go on to play a pivotal role as an investigator in the trial of adolf eichmann. >> translator: i was in my investigation room, and when he entered the room, i saw a poor, frightened person shaking. and in comparison to eichmann in his ss uniform, this uber mensch, i couldn't believe it. it was the same person standing in front of me responsible for the dead of my parents. when he opened his mouth, i cannot forget this. when he opened his mouth, i saw the doors of the crematorium open. >> reporter: goldman gilad and the investigative team, many of them holocaust survivors themselves, interrogated eichmann over the course of
12:37 am
several months. they went through thousands upon thousands of documents, piecing together the horrific events and building a volume of evidence that they hoped could prove eichmann's role beyond a shadow of a doubt. >> translator: one of the documents was from poland documenting a single transport to auschwitz in november 1943. and it has a list of numbers of those who arrived. those who were sent to the camps, those sent to the crematoriums. i realized my number is part of that list. 161135. so i look at them and i said, you need not look elsewhere, the proof is here. because i was part of that transport. the number is still on my arm. >> reporter: the eichmann trial served dual purposes. first, to bring the nazis' chief architect of the holocaust to justice. second, to highlight in detail what had happened to the jewish
12:38 am
people from firsthand eyewitness testimony of survivors, people who turned the statistical 6 million figure into personal stories of horror that the world would be unable to forget. >> there was a witness called malteen 30. he was one of the persons sent to auschwitz with his family. and his wife and his little daughter and his son. >> translator: then they told us, men to the right together with boys after the age of 4. and women and children to the left. >> everyone knew that people who were caught by the ss people, they were sent either to the left or to the right in auschwitz. to the right meant they could stay alive because they wanted their work or something. to the left meant to their
12:39 am
death. >> translator: and we saw that the women were already going, and we were still standing. until they all almost disappeared. my girl wore a red overcoat. and i still saw that red spot and that red spot was the sign that my wife was also there. but the red spot was waning, of course, and was smaller and smaller. i went to the right, and i never saw them again. >> now, i had a daughter exactly 2 1/2 years old. i had bought her, two weeks before that, the red coat. when he spoke about that, the little girl, 2 1/2 years old with the red coat, and the little red dot getting smaller and smaller. this is how his whole family disappeared from his life. i, standing there as a
12:40 am
prosecutor, suddenly couldn't utter a sound. >> eichmann had practically unlimited power to declare who was to be killed among the jews, chronologically and by segment of population, what countries geographically and throughout. >> reporter: after months of the prosecution presenting its case, eichmann finally took the stand in his own defense. >> translator: i wanted it to be clear to everyone in the world that this was -- this man was given a just trial, that he was given the possibility to have a defense counsel who would be covered by the government. he asked for a german, and therefore the government agreed to that. and i certainly agreed with that. and that whole trial in every way, in every field, should be handled in a just manner. >> reporter: under cross examination, despite being confronted with documents that showed his direct involvement,
12:41 am
eichmann repeatedly claimed he was just following orders. >> translator: i did not give these orders. whether the people should be taken to their death or not. this was the administrative routine. this is how it was arranged. and my task in this was just a tiny particle in this. >> translator: i am not beating about the bush. i was in hungary, one of those receiving orders, not giving orders. >> he lied through and through. he was acting. he was acting all the time. >> september 1939, the accused committed acts of expelling, uprooting, and exterminating the population in coordination with -- >> finally in december 1961, the trial was over and the verdict was in. the court found eichmann guilty and sentenced him to death.
12:42 am
>> here was a man who was appointed to be in charge of causing the carrying out of the murder of millions of people. so if any person deserves it, it was him. >> that was the sentence for one person. but what about the other eichmanns who fled germany and died at good old ages and were never brought to trial? you can give a sentence for one person, but you cannot avenge, there is no vengeance, for what was done to the jewish people. >> reporter: after eichmann had exhausted all of his legal appeals, he was hanged just a few minutes past midnight on june 1st, 1962. michael goldman gilad witnessed the execution and was part of a very small group chosen to spread eichmann's cremated ashes at sea. >> translator: i remember seeing
12:43 am
the ashes, how little the ashes were. i thought, wow. how can this be so few ashes for a whole human being? and this brought me back to an incident in birk aenau when 30 us were taken from our barracks to another building. it had a chimney. it was a crematorium. next to it was a mountain. when i got closer i realized that mountain was a mountain of ashes, a mountain of human beings. i remember it was cold and it was icy, and we were ordered to take wheelbarrows and shovels and take the ashes and spread them on the road. so that the soldiers who were patrolling would not slip on the ice. after we spread eichmann's ashes, we stood quietly at the edge of the boat. i thought to myself about my parents, my family, and those who did not have the privilege to see one of the greatest murderers brought to justice. >> reporter: 60 years later, with the number of living
12:44 am
witnesses to the nazi campaign of terror shrinking by the day, the risk of holocaust distortion and denial is a threat that makes the lessons of the eichmann trial morrelle relevan than ever. >> jews will not replace us! >> reporter: the fight against hate based on race, religion, ethnicity, sex, is a battle that is still being fought. white supremacy and racial hatred remain serious threats, and they're on the rise. >> translator: with the death of eichmann, the murderous ideology of nationalist socialism was not scattered. it's still existing here and there in the form of hatred. hatred that is dangerous. and we must be on guard so that catastrophes do not repeat themselves. hatred can cause catastrophes and bring an end to this world, to this planet. and we must educate the new generations not to hate, and to
12:45 am
