  • Midway through the week, we're glad you're

  • taking 10 minutes for CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • First up, surveying the damage in Taiwan.

  • A major storm made landfall in the island`s east coast Monday.

  • Typhoon Dujuan brought wind gusts as high as 153 miles per hour

  • and prompted the evacuation of 5,000 people

  • from some northeastern mountain areas.

  • They got 20 inches of rain in a short amount of time.

  • That increased the threat of flooding and landslides.

  • The storm killed two people and injured hundreds of others.

  • It knocked out power to half a million before

  • moving on to mainland China.

  • Dujuan had weakened a bit by the time it made landfall there.

  • But more than 260,000 Chinese were evacuated.

  • As the international fight against the ISIS terrorist group continues,

  • we're catching up with some people who escaped the militants.

  • A little over a year ago, ISIS trapped almost

  • 40,000 Yazidis on a mountain in northern Iraq.

  • Yazidis are an ancient religious minority.

  • ISIS wanted to kill them because their beliefs

  • are different from the extremist Muslim views of ISIS.

  • Thanks to a massive operation to evacuate the Yazidis

  • and fight ISIS, thousands of lives were saved.

  • In the mad dash to climb aboard a flight to safety,

  • families scrambled to stay together.

  • These desperate people spent nine days

  • trapped on a barren mountain under siege from ISIS militants

  • who chased them from their homes.

  • Amid the chaos and gunfire,

  • terror frozen on the face of a girl in purple, 14-year-old Aziza Hamed.

  • More than a year later, we found Aziza and her family

  • in this refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan.

  • I'm looking forward to this.

  • We're going to meet some old friends

  • that we encountered in very dramatic circumstances

  • more than a year ago.

  • And they're right up here.

  • Dunia, how are you?

  • Aziza and her older 18-year-old sister, Dunia,

  • are here along with their elder brother, Thabet, his wife

  • and his three children.

  • Their situation now much better than the unfinished construction site

  • where they lived for the first seven months

  • after ISIS made them flee their homes.

  • The girls tell me they go to school here,

  • and they say the camp has started to feel like home.

  • Aziza, you've gotten a little taller than Dunia since I saw you last.

  • But it does not take long for terrible memories to resurface.

  • What's making you sad right now?

  • "When I see you," Aziza says,

  • "I remember what happened."

  • We saw ISIS with our own eyes, how they were capturing people.

  • If we drove down the wrong road that day,

  • we would have ended up in ISIS hands,

  • but we took a different road and made it to the mountain.

  • In the year since their narrow escape,

  • their father`s health has deteriorated,

  • and he can no longer walk.

  • No one knows what happened to two elder brothers,

  • who were captured by ISIS last year

  • and haven't been heard from since.

  • And another brother, 23-year-old Karem,

  • smuggled himself to Europe on the migrant trail

  • taken by so many other people fleeing the Middle East.

  • Hey, Karem.

  • Hello.

  • WATSON: Hey, how are you? Where are you?

  • HAMED: Deutschland.

  • WATSON: Germany?

  • HAMED: Yes.

  • I ask Karem if he misses Iraq.

  • No, that`s gone. Iraq is gone for me. I lost it.

  • I want to build a new future for myself.

  • There's no future in Iraq.

  • That hopelessness, shared by so many people we talked to

  • in refugee camps in northern Iraq,

  • where people like Aziza and Dunia's older brother, Thabet,

  • still struggle to deal with the trauma they endured.

  • "I just want to start a new life," he says.

  • "And I want my family to stay safe and to stay together."

  • One of the few times 15-year-old Aziza really smiles

  • is when I ask her what she'd like to do

  • to the men from ISIS who attacked her family.

  • "I would stomp on their heads and kill them," she says.

  • This girl may have escaped to live another day,

  • but her innocence has been forever lost.

  • Ivan Watson, CNN, Dahak, Iraqi Kurdistan.

  • Were roving all over North America in today’s "Roll Call".

  • Well start in Canada, the province is Alberta,

  • the city is Calgary, the school is St. Francis High,

  • home of the Browns.

  • Moving south to the central U.S. state of Kansas,

  • weve got the Indians of Andale High School watching today.

  • Hello, Andale.

  • And though Anchorage isn’t the capital of Alaska,

  • it is the state’s largest city

  • and it’s where the Rams are watching at Wendler Middle School.

  • Time for the shoutout.

  • At sea level under normal conditions,

  • how fast would you have to be travelling to be supersonic?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out.

  • Is it: (a) 253 miles per hour, (b) 530 miles per hour,

  • (c) 612 miles per hour, or (d) 762 miles per hour?

  • Youve got three seconds. Go! (BUZZER)

  • On an average day,

  • sound waves travel at about 762 miles per hour.

  • So, option (d) is supersonic.

  • That’s your answer and that’s your shout out.

  • Of course, jets can break the speed of sound,

  • but can a car?

  • One did in 1997 in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

  • A British driver took a jet engine vehicle

  • to 763 miles per hour, a Guinness World Record that still stands.

  • It was supersonic and it’s kind of slow,

  • at least when compared to what engineers hope what this will do.

  • It’s called the Bloodhound Project,

  • estimated cost, $62 million, paid for by sponsors and supporters.

  • Critics may say it’s a waste of money,

  • but the project’s director says

  • he hopes it will inspire Britain’s future engineers.

  • It looks like something out of the latest "James Bond" movie.

  • And there’s even a cube-like character.

  • But this is reality.

  • Say hello to the Bloodhound,

  • billed as the world’s fastest racing car,

  • making its world debut in London.

  • Zero to 1,000 miles an hour in 55 seconds.

  • And then when we go through the measured mile 3.6 seconds,

  • a mile in 3.6 seconds.

  • Then weve got to think about stopping.

  • This is going to be driven by an RAF pilot.

  • As you can see it’s not quite done yet

  • but when it is, it is going to be supersonic.

  • This race car is part jet and part rocket.

  • This is known as a hybrid rocket.

  • It’s very, very clean and 98 percent efficient. It’s an amazing thing.

  • It was built by a team of Formula One

  • and aerospace experts with help from the

  • British Royal Air Force and Army Engineers.

  • The goal: to smash the current land speed record of 763 miles per hour.

  • The outside is sleek and aerodynamic.

  • And the inside--well, well let an expert tell you all about it.

  • Youve got a most impressive jet engine,

  • the EJ200, coupled with the next generation of space travel,

  • rocket motors are being built in the European Space Agency

  • and then the most extraordinary aerodynamic design.

  • Next up for the Bloodhound:

  • a trip in South Africa to race on a track

  • built especially for the supersonic machine.

  • The goal is to hit 800 miles per hour next year

  • and 1,000 miles per hour in 2017.

  • No doubt this race car is already on 007’s wish list.

  • Sherisse Pham, CNN, London.

  • Before we go -- a monkey on a loose.

  • Here he is hanging out on a mailbox.

  • Whoops, time for a water break.

  • All this being loose makes the money thirsty.

  • Hey, street sign, I’m shaking things up.

  • So, what, where, why -- well, it happened in Florida.

  • A pet macaque monkey named Zeke got out of his cage

  • and monkeyed around a while

  • until his owner came to collect him.

  • Zeke’s neighbors had seen this before,

  • so they kept their distance fearing a macaque attack.

  • So, how does he keep getting out?

  • Must have the mon-key.

  • Neighbors probably wish he’d just mon-kept to his house.

  • But if he mon- keeps on doing this,

  • youll have to wonder what this prim-ate to make him such an escape artist.

  • I’m Carl Azuz, and that’s CNN STUDENT NEWS.

Midway through the week, we're glad you're
