water service....the group says that's nearly double the national average. one of the study's authors says the united nations recommends that water and sewer service shouldn't exceed 3-percent of a household income. in flint... the charges totaled about 7-percent. it has become a symbol of vancouver's out-of-reach real estate market. this tiny, tear-down home in a popular area of the city has sold for almost two-and-a-half million dollars. that was 80-thousand dollars more than the asking price. the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home was put on the market two weeks ago. it's missing a few shingles, some of the walls are rotting, and it needs a paint job. but none of that really matters since it will likely be torn down, and a new home built in its place. there's still much more to come in the next half-hour... just ahead -- privacy or national security? that is the question tonight for one of the world's biggest and most profitable corporations -- as it deals with federal agents -- in the wake of a deadly terror

9:34 pm
a simple gesture -- with complicated symbolism... right before his open air mass in juarez, mexico -- pope francis prays and give blessings at the american border. partaking in the moment from the other side of the fence -- hundreds of so-called francis v-i-p's -- migrants now living in the u-s. here's some of the pontiff's message later at the mass: let us say together in response to the suffering on so many faces, in your compassion and mercy, lord have pity on us. immigration has been a major race -- with hardliners calling for saying he'll build a huge wall along america's southern border. the argentine pope meanwhile has even calling them a quote "form of suicide." juarez is a sprawling northern mexican city -- plagued by corruption and violence for years
9:35 pm

so far, no one group has taken responsibility for the attack. a good sign in syria, as aid makes its way to 'besieged' cities'...but is it enough to push the peace process? state department spokesman mark toner says syria's regime is finally allowing aid to seven besieged areas of syria, although it's late in coming, and needs to be permanent. human aid convoys are en route with food and medicine... several have already arrived in syria, including a damascus suburb and more should arrive soon. toner says it's a positive step forward, but was cautious that this would be enough to further push the peace initiatives and end the conflicts between syria's regime and rebel forces. toner says: " the assad regime should have allowed this access long ago, and we're still very concerned that the syrian regime has thus far only agreed to what they call 'temporary' access, which is these besieged communities, we obviously want to see permanent access." more talks to end the civil war in syria are expected to take place next

the civil war between present basar al-assad's forces and rebels has been going on since 2011. apple is challenging a judge's order to help the f-b-i unlock an i-phone. that phone belonged to one of the people behind last year's terror attack in san bernardino, california. so why is apple reluctant to follow the order? brian todd explains ... a devastating terror attack in san bernardino... and a key question, still un-answered. did shooter syed farook communicate with terrorists overseas? the f-b-i's been frustrated- that it hasn't been able to find out. "we still have one of those killer's phones that we have not been able to open. it's been over two months now. we're still working on it." tonight- the f-b-i could be closer to unlocking farook's i-phone. a federal judge has ordered apple to help the bureau break into his phone. try to find out what that terrorist was doing? "well certainly! if you want to know. you can't - the old saying of connect
9:38 pm
dots if you can't collect em. and that's the problem here." apple doesn't hold the key to unlock farook's i-phone. the only way to do that is with his passcode-- which isn't stored on apple's servers. the f-b-i could've tried to guess his passcode, but there are 10-thousand possible four-digit pin-numbers... and if agents guessed wrong 10 times, all the data- all the content- could be permanently erased from farook's phone.. potential evidence, lost. so tonight- the f-b-i wants apple to design software-- that would allow investigators to guess a passcode as many times as they need to, to break in. apple is angry with the judge's order- and is trying to prevent the f-b-i from accessing phones like farook's-- but also phones like yours. in a letter, apple c-e-o tim cook says, quote, "the government is asking apple to hack our own users and undermine decades of security advancements that protect our customers." a top privacy advocate says there are all kinds of vulnerabilities--
9:39 pm
encrypted phones. "once you build in this back door, it's not necessarily the fbi agent acting pursuant to the warrant that gets access. it could be a criminal actor. it could be the chinese government. it could be your industrial adversaries. you really don't know." apple's dispute with the f-b-i is garnering the attention of republican presidential candidates. donald trump said wednesday that the tech giant should comply with the court and open up the phone. skies will stay cloudy and gray tonight with temperatures in the mid 30s. we won't drop much more... holding steady in the 30s. tomorrow will be windy and a lot warmer as air rushes in from the southeast.
