2:31 am
and consulates shut down today. among them, the post in abu dhabi. john is live there this morning. what is the latest? >> reporter: this was supposed to be a 24 hour closure in abu dhabi. one day became six. to make this clearer, we have the end of ramadan holiday. it is going to start on wednesday. so, this is basically what we are seeing monday and tuesday, a bridge to that holiday is going back to the strategy that the state department didn't want to get caught flat footed as they did in september 2012. a more cautious approach. let's give you a sense of the landscape. you get an idea of what we are looking at in terms of the u.s. embassy. it's the tall, slanted building here. it stands out in that quarter, which is a mile away from our
2:32 am
operation here. normally, on the new circumstances, we can't go into that quarter with a still or video camera. that's how tight security normally is in the uae. it's worth remembering, 300 miles away from iran, across the straits. security is part of our normal lives here. the u.s. clamped down gives a sense of how worried they are about the traffic and the noise we are hearing from yemen. it's only an hour flight from here to abu dhabi or dubai. >> any surprise on the ground that the closures were extended from one to six days so suddenly? >> reporter: to be candid, the thing we are dealing with is the hot desert winds. at midday, 45 degrees. it's almost life as normal here. emirates living here in the country don't wake up until the afternoon because they are
2:33 am
staying up so late for the last meal before they go for the long day period without having drinking water or liquids and having a meal. things don't pick up until the afternoon. you don't see extra security. if you go back to the embassy, you get a sense of what is going on. there's a handful of marines guarding the facility with nobody inside. the state department is connecting the dots here. over the last two weeks, major outbreaks in the jails of pakistan, iraq and libya. nearly 2,000 militants with the help of al qaeda came out of jail. the traffic noise went up as a result. not surprisingly whether it's the uae or other countries on the list, there's a high level of alert. you don't see it on the streets here as the muslims celebrate the end of ramadan. >> there's a number of prison outbreaks. >> it's incredible. >> john, thanks so much.
2:34 am
33 minutes after the hour. a tragic incident here in new york. a 14-year-old boy is dead after police say he wouldn't drop his gun. sunday morning, this is in the bronx, the two officers saw the teen chasing someone with a gun in his hand. when he wouldn't drop it, an officer fired his weapon, hitting the teen in the jaw. >> i don't see what the officers could have done differently. someone is shooting at someone else, running down the street, they tell him to stop. a shot is fired on that street. i mean, i think they did what we would expect officers of any experience level to dochlt. >> police are trying to identify the other man and investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
