  • Thursday is underway.

  • CNN STUDENT NEWS is getting you up-to-speed

  • on stories making headlines worldwide.

  • First, an update from Baltimore, Maryland.

  • The city`s mayor is asking the U.S. Department of Justice

  • to get involved and conduct the civil rights investigation

  • in the Baltimore`s police department.

  • The U.S. government says it`s considering the request.

  • It was made after six policies were charged

  • in the death of 25-year- old Freddie Gray.

  • He was fatally injured while in police custody last month.

  • Peaceful protests and riots followed.

  • Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake also promised yesterday

  • that Baltimore`s police officers

  • would have body cameras by the end of the year.

  • This can cost the department tens of thousands of dollars

  • for the equipment and especially the fees to store their video data.

  • But supporters of cameras say they help protect both the public and police.

  • Kobani is in ruins.

  • The city was a battleground of the U.S.-led war against ISIS.

  • What`s left of it was located in northern Syria,

  • in view of the country`s border with Turkey.

  • The terrorist group took over most of the city last year,

  • but Kurdish Peshmerga forces supported by U.S.-led

  • airstrikes eventually pushed ISIS fighters out.

  • A Syrian human rights organization says

  • roughly 1,000 terrorists were killed in the fighting.

  • Those fighting them lost several hundred of their own.

  • And today, with the bakery and two schools open,

  • along with the hospital that`s operational,

  • people who`d fled the fighting in Kobani are returning home.

  • The recovery challenges they face are enormous.

  • For one thing, Syria is still at civil war, with Syrian government forces,

  • rebels and terrorists all wrestling for control.

  • For another thing, most of the city is in ruins.

  • When you see images like this, you can see the greatest cost,

  • simply how homes,

  • ordinary life were being destroyed by those consistent airstrikes.

  • You can so easily see.

  • But it`s only the drone`s eye view

  • that really opens up that level of damage.

  • We saw ourselves on the hills around this,

  • these constant airstrikes, car bombings as well.

  • But that street level view, we also saw, which was remarkable to behold.

  • Hundreds of people still trying to live their lives there

  • and you can see there in that video, people have started to return.

  • Officials there talked about 6,000 in one week, in fact,

  • in the city, but also the countryside around it,

  • bringing the total to tens of thousands now living there.

  • But simply as that drone flies through those streets,

  • it`s absolutely obvious that there`s a massive task

  • ahead of anyone living in Kobani, or trying to go back there,

  • and they say that that is not assisted by the Turkish government.

  • They`re not opening the main border gates close to Kobani,

  • nor allowing in the influx of heavy machinery

  • that you can see there surely is badly needed to begin the excavation,

  • to even allow reconstruction to occur.

  • They say that 70 percent of that city is completely destroyed

  • and the areas you`re seeing are pretty much

  • where much of the most intense airstrikes or fighting occurred.

  • They called it Kobani-grad when the attack was underway

  • because the Kurdish fighters looking to try

  • and defend it knew that they`d sustain so much damage,

  • they`d be few spoils for victory left.

  • But right now, as you can see from those drone shots,

  • nearly every building has failed to escape unscathed --

  • the devastating impact on that one town alone in the fight against ISIS.

  • Today is election day in the United Kingdom.

  • Voters will be choosing members of parliament.

  • Whoever leads the party that wins the majority

  • in parliament becomes prime minister.

  • There are a lot of issues at stake,

  • and how they turn out could hinge on how Britons vote.

  • Will the nation continue to be part of the European Union,

  • an economic and political alliance of 28 countries

  • whose currency is the euro?

  • Will taxes be raised on businesses and Britons with high incomes?

  • Will lawmakers once again make moves

  • that could allow Scotland to become an independent country?

  • Polls show that the U.K.`s main parties are neck and neck.

  • And if the vote is divided, political gridlock could be on the horizon.

  • It`s a complicated election and keeping track of

  • where all the action will be involves a lot of planning.

  • CNN is all over the key locations in London

  • for all U.K. election coverage with our anchors,

  • correspondents and political contributors all providing insight and context.

  • One of our live locations is right here on the south bank of the River Thames,

  • across St. Thomas` Hospital,

  • so that we can get this gorgeous shot of the Houses of Parliament.

  • You can also see Big Ben over here,

  • which is actually the name of the bell inside, not the tower itself.

  • Come with me. I`ll show where else we`re set up.

  • Take a look at this.

  • This two-story platform, surely bigger than most homes,

  • has been set up for the international broadcasters because it has a straight,

  • close up view of the Houses of Parliament.

  • Our Christiane Amanpour will be broadcasting from this location. But we`re not just on the ground.

  • We`re also got some wheels.

  • Richard Quest will be on one of the London`s iconic double-decker buses,

  • talking to voters on election night.

  • But the finish line of our coverage is here.

  • Number 10 Downing Street, the office the prime minister.

  • We will have correspondents live here as well,

  • as we all wait to see how its next occupant will be.

  • Now, it makes sense that the village of Lincolnshire

  • would be in the land of Lincoln. That`s Illinois.

  • It`s where the Trojans are watching.

  • Hello, Daniel Wright Junior High School.

  • In Little Rhody, or may be better known as the Ocean or Plantation State,

  • is the Indians up next from Aldrich Junior High School there in Warwick, Rhode Island.

  • And in the Nutmeg or Constitution State,

  • we`re glad to be part of your day at Northwest Village School.

  • It`s in Plainville, Connecticut.

  • As the weather gets hotter, animals have to deal with it.

  • Dogs pant. Pigs wallow in mud. Birds take baths.

  • What do cats do? They sweat. That`s right. Cats sweat.

  • But, Carl, my cat is never sweaty.

  • That`s because they sweat through their paws.

  • It`s how they manage to stay cool cat.

  • Now, cats random (ph).

  • All right. You might not think that a job working in transportation

  • would involve rappelling, bouldering and clearing rocks as wide as two feet.

  • But if you`re looking to earn money while you keep drivers safe,

  • and enjoy the great outdoors, this might be for you.

  • An understanding of geology and erosion helps, as does respect for gravity.

  • In California, Mike Rowe shows how "Somebody`s Gotta Do It".

  • Rock. Big rock. Thank you.

  • The actual job is harder than this. I think we may have problems.

  • Welcome. Nice. Nice office. Yes, isn`t it?

  • Excuse me. I`m allergic to heights.

  • The job is clearly dangerous and I`m both flattered

  • and surprised the state gave us permission to participate

  • with Tom and his crew.

  • This is when the fun starts.

  • All right. Come on. Glide (ph) them in.

  • And with that, finally, the actual work begins.

  • We can start rolling rocks. Man, there`s so much stuff here.

  • This is the kind of things that oil pans and radiators hit.

  • Yes, that thing pops out of the street.

  • Yes. Straight through to your oil pan. Yes, look at how loose all this is.

  • Yes, that`s why we do it. So, basically this is erosion, right? Rains.

  • It`s withering of the rocks, sort of rots out and you got to clean it up

  • and maybe hopefully get down to some better rock.

  • It seems endless in terms of like job, right?

  • Right. And then, you know, in five, 10 years,

  • when most of the soil is gone and whatnot,

  • we`ll come back and we`ll do this again.

  • Right. It`s a maintenance activity. You know what it is. It`s job security.

  • Job security, too. I mean, look at the road already,

  • just for a little bit we`ve done so far. Yes.

  • Before we go, an animal story you would only hear out of Australia.

  • A recent visitor to the emergency room didn`t need treatment.

  • It just stopped by to check things out in a hospital near Melbourne.

  • Surveillance cameras got plenty of footage of the koala bear

  • wandering around various rooms.

  • Hospital workers reportedly knew about this,

  • but just decided to leave them alone. After about three minutes,

  • he wandered out the door that let him in.

  • So, there is no need to koala doctor.

  • It didn`t take someone highly koala-fied to see

  • he was in need of a koala operation.

  • Whoo! The video has gotten a koala-lot of attention on the Internet.

  • The animal might find that embarrassing.

  • Either way, I`m Carl Azuz. Hoping you`ll visit us again tomorrow.

Thursday is underway.
