>> saudi arabia says that aid is reaching yemen. >> parts of the uk expected to reach the highest level of air pollution while -- it is a sad day for cricket fans. former star and player announcer richie has died at the age of 84 years old. >> and apple just started taking orders 30 seconds ago for that right there, its new watch. >> welcome to our viewers here in the united states and arnold
the world. >> hello everyone. you're watching cnn newsroom. >> and we again this hour in yemen where it is 10:00 a.m. and the need for food, water and basic medical aid is growing more desperate. >> trying to get aid to the people who need it. the red cross said at first they weren't. but they were inhibiting that. the sow dees have blocked the shop with more than 47 tons of wheat from entering a port in yemen. >> civilians are fleeing from their homes by the thousands. >> you have been talking with the people from yemen who have
taken that long ride across the strait behind you but they are desperate apparently. >> reporter: desperate is the best way to describe anyone who would pile into a rickety fishing vessel. these are the lucky ones. many thousands of civilians are trapped by the fighting unable to seek any sort of are fuj. take a look at this. for encreasingly desperate people, djibouti is becoming a safe haven but first they have to cross this to get there. it's one of the busiest waterways in the world and they're making this journey in fishing vessels. often three or four families
jammed in at the same time. >> this is where many end up in the north of djibouti. a quiet little fishing port. we find this man and his wife turning their daily government ration into the family's lunch. they're one of 50 families squeezed into the building site while the official camp is being built. she can almost forget what happened the night the aerial bombardment began. >> her son described the
family's long journey in a rickety fishing boat as a window to hell. >> reporter: but not everyone in the family made the journey. amna's daughters and their families are still in yemen, cut off from all communication. talking about it, amna became too overcame to continue. more and more are expected to make this desperate crossing, hoping that amna and her family
won't be too long before they can go home. >> you ear right. some aid has reached yemen but it's nowhere near enough. for those left behind that facing a humanitarian catastrophe. >> all right. we thank you there in djibouti. thank you. >> now we move on to syria. activists say the government is now bombing the refugee camp in damascus. the observe tory for human rights says isis now controls about 90% of that camp. u.n. chief says any such assault would be a war crime. >> the yarmouk refugee camp is
hell. 18,000 are now being held hostage by extremist militants. our camp is beginning to resemble a death camp. the residents of yarmouk are being turned into human shields. they face a double edged sword inside the camp and government forces outside. >> syria has not yet responded to those allegations about the use of barrel bombs. >> we have this just in to cnn from afghanistan. at least three civilians are dead after a suicide bomber blew up a car bomb in the eastern part of the country. >> police say the bomber was targeting u.s. forces part of a nato con voice.
there's no word on whether any of the soldiers were injured. >> new developments in the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer. >> there is newly released video that shows some of the last minute of the victim's life. this as a new eyewitness to the final moments is now speaking out. >> describes the confrontation that led to the shooting. we warn you the story contains the graphic video of his shooting. >> reporter: the video not only shows the end of his life but the end of a confrontation. >> we heard the police siren. >> but in an excleessive interview tonight, gwen says she was in the neighborhood when she heard the police car speeding by. she followed him where officer michael slager pulled walter
scott over. at that point there was chaos. she says she saw the two men at the entrance to a vacant lot. >> i didn't hear mr. slager saying stop or halt. >> nichols says that's when she saw a physical confrontation. >> before what you saw there was a us tole over there at the end of the gate. >> were they on the ground rolling? >> not not on the ground rolling. it was luke a tussle type of thing like what do you want or what did i do. >> she says she has yet to speak with police. newly released dash cam video shows scott's car pulling over, slager having a conversation and later scott opens the door of his vehicle and takes off. why would scott have run? santana told nbc of one possibility. >> before the video i saw that he was trying to get away of the
taser. and his reaction was just, you know, to get away of the taser. >> reporter: the confrontation ended up a long way from where it started, more than two football fields from our measurement. it appears that santana was the only bystander in the immediate area where the shots were fired. this house abandoned. this apartment building also abandoned. this is where santana started filming. gwen nickels says her son also had a run in with police. she was overwhelmed when she heard the gunshots that killed walter scott. >> i started to cry. sorry. i started to cry because i thought about the altercation
with my son exit could have been my son. it could have been any of the young black men around here. >> there was a passenger in walter scott's car but we have not yet heard his account. brian todd, cnn, north charleston, south carolina. >> we are now hearing from the mother of officer slager. she tells abc news she hasn't even watched the eyewitness video of the killing because she's in denial. >> i can't imagine him doing something that is just not like him. that's not his character. but i just have to -- i just -- i have to just let it be and hope god takes care of everybody involved.
not only my family but the scott family. i know they're grieving just like i am grieving. >> it's important to point out that the dash cam video is just one piece of a much bigger picture. she says if we only have the dash cam video and not the cell phone, this might be a different story. >> great deference is given to police officers so when an officer says something by and large he's taken at his word. thank god. now i'm hoping that the citizens' perspective jurors will understand that every now and then a police officer will be dishonest. when he violates policy or is excessive and now he has to manufacture a situation to justify something that is really unjustifiable. >> and cnn legal analyst says
this video evidence will obviously have an impact on the future court case. >> i think this radically changes the way the case will be presented to the court. normally jurors are left only with the viewpoint of the police officer. they tend to be sympathetic to police officers but in a case like this of course, watching the video of this man being shot in the back maybe as many as five times and then the officer handcuffing him behind his back. you can imagine the pain that scott was in as he was on the ground dying and then the officer pulls his arms behind his back and handcuffs him. it almost looks like torture. >> yes. that's a valid point. if convict ed the former officer could face life in prison or the death penalty. >> a new video from california appears to show deputies beating a suspect for nearly two minutes straight. this video was shot from a news
chopper. the deputies with the san be bernidino sheriff's department were chasing a man as somebody wanted for identity theft. the officers use tried to use tasers. >> the sheriff says he has ordered an internal investigation. the horse that the man allegedly stole and three deputies were all injured. the suspect has been hospitalized. >> tornados ripped across the central part of the united states. we know that at least one person has been confirmed killed and a lot of damage. >> in fact we have new video that has come into cnn that i need to show you. it's both terrifying and also extraordinary to watch. take a look at the skraen. this is from a storm chaser. look at this.
captures the moment when an 18 wheeler truck is flipped over. obviously they had the proximity close enough to where that tornado was able to generate enough wind to topple over something of that weight. unbelievable stuff. back to my graphics. i want to show you that this is the greater rochelle area. this is chicago. so we're talking about the north western sections of illinois. the u.s. state of illinois. what we have done is we put the radar on during that particular moment in time when the tornado crossed just north of the rochelle area. i want to point out that shading of purple and deep red. that's called a debris ball. that's something that radar will pick up on with the large wedged tornados. dust and various articles from the ground including shrapnel from vehicles or tree debris or trucktures is actually showing
up on our radar so something fascinating to actually see that that particular moment in time, of course this is roughly about eight hours ago. at the moment we do still have one tornado watch box in effect for the next two hours or so. this is into indiana, portions of ohio and kentucky. this does include the greater louisville area. we do have storms moving through as we speak. none of them are tornadic but certainly strong gusty winds and the possibility of large dangering hail with this. we want to talk about how this storm is moving to the east and on friday, the start of an early weekend we have the possibility of all the way to atlanta here after that video i'm taking it
seriously. >> one other thing to point out, one person killed but a lot of lives were spared because the warning got out quick. >> that's right. there was a lot of local television stations that did their part and weather spotters and storm chasers like this that get out the word very quickly. >> thanks guys. >> all right. coming up here, australia loses a renowned and beloved kmen tator. we will tell you about richi richie benaud. >> leaders of the u.s. and cuba expected to have an historic interaction in panama.

>> reporter: there would be very few australians cho have not passed a summer in the company of richie benaud. his voice was more present than the chirping of the cicadas in our suburbs and towns. that voice, tragically is now still. but we remember him with tremendous affection. and now simon love has a closer look at the rif of. >> benaud went on to become the voice of cricket. a man admired and treasured. ri richie's record was amazing.
he made his debut in 1952 and then captain australia from 1958 to 1964 where he retired after playing a total of 63 chess matches. he took five wickets. he played a part in one of the great innings. the tied test between australia and the west indys in 1960. he was born in 1930 into a family where cricket was second nature. they moved and richie practiced his leg spinners under the eye of his father before making his first grade debut when he was only 16. it was the start of a wonderful and fruitful career. in 19 77, world series cricket
brought us a new richie. it was a growling tub thumping battle. >> i think the public would be interested to know that there is a team in australia. >> when he insisted richie stand out by adopting the beige jacket. an elegant style and trademark that richie would celebrate the rest of his career. richie was always the master of the one-liner. >> left the catch. >> and so often he could sum up a beautiful stroke or perfect delivery.
>> what a difference it makes. >> reporter: richie was still recovering from a car accident when the battle with cancer really began to take its toll. he had missed 2013 and 2014 season. the first yooer he had not been on a team since world series cricket began more than 35 years before. >> never ever woke up on a field where i was playing and i wished had. because the skin cancers which i had then, got them as a young man, and that's a recurring thing now. so just got do your best and that's exactly what i'm doing. >> so had bad are the skin cancers? >> i've had quite a while ago and radiation and things like
peter fitzsimmons. >> so the government has offered to hold a state funeral for him. how significant would you say his voice was to the sport? >> he was, i think it is fair to say the most beloved australian. he is known in this country as the voice of the summer. whatever the calendar said, you have to be 75 to 80 years old to remember a time when richie was not a part, though he was a very dignified presence and it wasn't simply that he was a great
captain or kmen tator. he was all of those things and he had been there for six or seven decades in public life. >> and so he, cricket was in his family. we learned that from the story, those of us who don't follow cricket as closely as the rest of the wold but he really became a household name as a kmen tator. what was it abhis skills as a kmen tator outside of his love for cricket. >> there is a tendcy just to fill and keep talking and talking and talking. richie was famous for when something extraordinary happened suddenly stopping, letting the silence fill the gap and meaning that we, the viewers, would focus on what was happening and then he would come back. he was one of those that wouldn't just babble and babble and babble rather in the manner in which i am doing now but
instead would pause, it would be significant and people would lean forward. richie is about to speak. he also has a distinctive speaking tile. it was noted today that we came out of a system of very much a bbc type voice. so in the 1950s and 60s australia if you were broadcast you had to have a british accent because we thought that was quite classy and richie benaud was one of the last to have that slightly british accent. instead of saying the score was two for 222.
>> they said put your brain into gear. if you can add to what's on the screen do it otherwise shut up. >> let me give the time call around the world. in sydney it will be 5:32. >> i love it. thank you for taking the time. >> still to come here on cnn newsroom, apple is giving people a chance to test drive its new smart watch. we will go live to one store to see if people are lining up. >> dangerously high pollution levels in the uk. we will get the story on that from derek. stay with us. technology gives l and now technology gives you home security and control in a new and revolutionary way. introducing plug & protect from livewatch security, an easy to use wireless security system, customized just for your home. control from any smartphone,

there some of the buyers are really interested in the fitness capability. this is apple's first foray into the luxury markets. prices upwards of 1,000 u.s. dollars. the question is will anyone actually buy one? >> how did it look on you david? how did it look on you? the $17,000 watch. >> reporter: my salary is probably a bit low to be able to afford that. i might go for the lower one there. but, all things considered, you know, there's another wider context going on here. china's really critical to
apple's future and growth around the world. 16 billion in sales in quarter one of this dwreer and there's a question of whether it can translate the demand into the first wearable venture. we had a luxury watch show actually cancelled. it was a top headline in the paper over concerns there would be a low turnout. launching and what their strategy will be. certainly we may get our first glimpse here in asia of how it will be received when the first watch is shipped. >> david, thank you so much for your reporting there. >> you have got to wonder if cartier is threatening to buy the apple watch. check out christine's interview with a google executive who
