  • The most wanted terrorism suspect in Europe is now in police custody

  • but the investigation that eventually caught him is far from over.

  • That’s what’s first up this Monday. I’m Carl Azuz.

  • Salah Abdeslam is the only person

  • suspected of participating in the Paris terrorist attacks

  • who’s still alive.

  • The assault last November killed 130 people

  • and wounded hundreds of others in the French capital.

  • The ISIS terrorist group said it was responsible.

  • Abdeslam, who was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium,

  • is suspected of supporting the attackers.

  • He’s accused running cars and apartments for them.

  • He allegedly drove some of the terrorists to one side of the attacks.

  • Until last week, the search for him had gone cold.

  • But a SWAT team’s raid in an apartment

  • in the Belgium capital found Abdeslam’s finger prints.

  • And the suspect himself was arrested

  • after a gun battle near his family home.

  • Police also found a large number of weapons

  • and they now say that more than 30 people

  • were somehow involved in the November 13th attacks.

  • For the first time since 1928,

  • a U.S. president is visiting the island nation of Cuba.

  • Air Force One touched down yesterday in the capital Havana.

  • For President Obama, this is another step toward

  • normalizing the relationship between his nation

  • and a country that has been a U.S. rival since the Cold War.

  • Hell be delivering a speech on state television.

  • Hell meet with Cuban President Raul Castro

  • and some of those who oppose him.

  • He hopes to influence the communist country

  • to give its people more freedoms and open more opportunities for U.S. businesses.

  • But critics say human rights in Cuba

  • have actually gotten worse since President Obama

  • started this effort three years ago

  • and it seems unlikely that either the U.S. Congress or the Cuban government

  • is ready to make major changes.

  • Raul Castro is the president of Cuba.

  • He’s probably best known for being a younger brother and loyal confidant,

  • loyal deputy of Fidel Castro.

  • Raul Castro came into power in 2006,

  • although he’s always been his brother of Fidel’s most trusted deputy.

  • It was a really kind of unexpected transition

  • because Fidel Castro felt sick really unexpectedly.

  • It’s a still mysterious intestinal ailment

  • and Raul Castro had to step in the spotlight very, very quickly.

  • You know, Raul Castro has been with Fidel basically all of his life.

  • He’s been his most trusted revolutionary sidekick really.

  • They fundamentally changed this country.

  • They upended all the political structures,

  • all the power structures and established the first communist government

  • in the western hemisphere.

  • Cuba is really fascinating because it’s so close to the United States

  • and yet it couldn’t have a more different form of government.

  • It is a single party form of government.

  • There are not open elections and there are not multiple parties.

  • And that someone like Raul Castro controls the political system,

  • he controls the economy and he controls the army.

  • He really is, his critics say, a tyrant.

  • Raul’s nickname was Raul the Reformer

  • because he has taken steps

  • and were talking about Cubans being able to travel,

  • Cubans will able to open up their own businesses.

  • Sports clubs being able to play overseas,

  • which Fidel would never have allowed.

  • The pope continues taking the leading role in Cuba-U.S. relations.

  • He Raul Castro would go back to church

  • and this is a man who’s a life-long atheist, a devout communist,

  • and Raul Castro is finally emerging as his own man.

  • He’s emerging from Fidel Castro’s shadow.

  • As with Fidel Castro, Raul Castro’s critics said

  • this is basically someone wholl stay in power at any cost

  • and that his ultimately goal really is staying in power.

  • Of course, he’s in early 80s. Fidel Castro is now in his late 80s.

  • So, it’s really just a question of biology now more than anything else,

  • how much longer can these men stay in power.

  • Cuba is not a wealthy nation.

  • It’s average income per person is estimated to be around $10,000 per year.

  • Cuba sometimes blames the U.S. trade embargo for its economic problems.

  • That’s a limit on the business and travel

  • that citizens can conduct with Cuba.

  • It’s meant to pressure the country

  • to improve human rights and transition to democracy.

  • But Cuba’s economy had a major shock in 1990,

  • when economic health from its closest ally, the Soviet Union, stopped.

  • That took away $4 billion to $6 billion from Cuba’s economy every year.

  • The country of Cuba is about the size of Tennessee. Location: 90 miles south of Key West.

  • Population: 11.3 million. Currencies: Cuban Peso. Cuban convertible peso.

  • Havana was declared capital of colonial Cuba in 1607.

  • Much of the city has been frozen in time since revolutionaries took control in 1959.

  • A visa is required when traveling to Cuba.

  • U.S. citizens need a license to spend money.

  • U.S. citizens are only permitted to travel for specific reasons, such as:

  • professional research, journalistic activity, family visit, education.

  • Over the weekend, North Korea launched a pair of ballistic missiles.

  • South Korean officials said one of them

  • flew about 500 miles east toward the ocean.

  • Another projectile disappeared in flight.

  • It’s an example of saber-rattling,

  • or show of military power from the communist nation.

  • It’s been a rival of the U.S. and South Korea

  • since the Korean War in the early 1950s.

  • Somewhere in the sea east of Korea,

  • F-18 fighter jets catapult into the sky,

  • launching off a deck of a U.S. aircraft carrier the John C. Stennis.

  • This carrier strike group is here as part of annual joint military exercises with South Korea.

  • This takes place every year and it makes the North Korean government furious.

  • They argue that this could be a precursor to a military invasion of the North.

  • Nonsense, says the admiral in charge here.

  • But he says the presence of the largest war machine in the U.S. military arsenal

  • is designed to send a message to North Korea.

  • The provocations and things that you see from North Korea,

  • we hope that our actions here as routine operations help to deter any escalatory actions.

  • North Korea routinely shows off its own military muscle.

  • Some experts argue you have to show strength when dealing with this regime.

  • If you show weakness in the domestic political system

  • in the North Korean authoritarian like North Korea, youre eliminated.

  • And that’s how it works in the international system.

  • If you are weak, they will bully you and take advantage of you.

  • They only respect power.

  • The problem is, this annual show of force,

  • which includes simulated amphibious assaults

  • carried out by U.S. and South Korean marines hasn’t stopped North Korea

  • from testing nuclear bombs.

  • In fact, Pyongyang recently fired salvos of ballistic missiles twice in just eight days,

  • in violation of multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions.

  • Just days ago, Kim Jong-un gave orders for scientists

  • to develop the technology to launch a nuclear warhead

  • on the tip of a ballistic missile.

  • Even those who preached power concede Pyongyang

  • is committed to expanding its nuclear arsenal.

  • They put so much effort and theyre very dedicated to having those capabilities.

  • So, if theyre not reliable today, theyre going to keep working

  • so theyll be reliable and that they can use them

  • if they needed to use them tomorrow, or next month or next year.

  • And so, the saber-rattling continues.

  • In addition to this strategy of containment and deterrence,

  • experts say the U.S. and its allies are very likely training for other possible scenarios,

  • such as how to take out North Korea’s growing arsenal of nuclear weapons.

  • If it looks like Pyongyang is about to use them.

  • Ivan Watson, CNN, aboard the U.S. aircraft carrier John C. Stennis.

  • The site: CNNStudentNews.com. The page: Friday’s transcript page.

  • The schools on today’s "Roll Call": McCracken County High School,

  • it’s in Paducah, Kentucky, and it’s where the Mustangs roam free.

  • Next to the U.S. Pacific coast, were making a stop in Issaquah, Washington.

  • It’s there that the Panthers are prowling around Issaquah Middle School.

  • And crossing the Pacific, we come to the island nation of Indonesia.

  • And it’s great to see North Jakarta International School watching in Jakarta.

  • Before we go, monkeying around with magic.

  • Who doesn’t love a really good card trick?

  • At first baboon doesn’t. Baboon sees card. Baboon is unimpressed.

  • But then, wait, what? How? Baboon is shocked and amazed.

  • Where did your card go?

  • He’s just as impressed the second time around.

  • It’s an illusion the animal had probably never seen before

  • and it’s easy to see why this is one of America’s funniest home videos.

  • Hopefully, the next time that happens, the animal won’t be ape-rehensive.

  • He should have no illusions or be nearly as ba-baboon-zled.

  • After all, the clear takeaway here is that things aren’t always as they see-mian.

  • Whoo! I’m Carl Azuz. We hope youll reappear again tomorrow.
