CNN Exclusive: Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather Jr. showdown

In an exclusive interview, world champion Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao tells CNN his eldest children are most excited about his upcoming bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr., saying they would be on the “front row” at the Las Vegas showdown on May 2.

Flight from Terror: New CNN special report takes viewers inside dramatic rescue from Iraq's Mt. Sinjar

What started off as an aid drop for a vulnerable population fleeing persecution at the hands of ISIS unexpectedly turned into a dramatic and chaotic rescue mission that has become a defining moment for a country on the brink of collapse.

CNN's senior international correspondent Ivan Watson and his team, which includes Emmy-nominated photojournalist Mark Phillips, were on board the Iraqi relief helicopter making a supply drop to desperate Yazidis seeking refuge from ISIS on Mt. Sinjar. As the chopper touched down, it was rushed by these frantic refugees begging for rescue. Among them, a girl in purple with tears streaming down her face - 15-year-old Aziza. Separated from her father back on Mt. Sinjar, her story has captured the world's attention.

But as Watson reported after the rescue, getting off the mountain – either by air or on foot – is only half the battle. Where do the Yazidis go now? In a breathtaking half hour, CNN takes you behind the scenes of the dramatic rescue from Mt. Sinjar as people embark on a flight from terror.  FULL POST
