TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

WASHINGTON ON HOLD FOR A THIRD

DAY.

THE GRIDLOCK BEHIND THE

GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN.

PLUS HOW THE UNITED NATIONS

IS WORKING TO BRING AID TO WAR

RAVAGED AREAS OF SYRIA.

AND AL-SHABAB AND AL-QAEDA

JOINING FORCES AND TARGETING

CHRISTIANS.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHERE ALL OF THIS

AND MORE TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

A SHOOTING SENDS CAPITOL HILL

INTO LOCKDOWN.

GOOD EVENING I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

AND I AM MARK MARTIN.

POLICE SAY SECURITY MEASURE PUT

INTO PLACE AFTER GUN FIRE

OUTSIDE THE CAPITOL HILL.

CBN NEWS JOHN WAAGE JOINS US, WE

UNDERSTAND THE LOCKDOWN HAS BEEN

LIFT, WHAT HAPPENED?

REPORTER: THAT'S RIGHT.

WHAT WE CAN REPORT NOW, THIS WAS

NOT TERRORISM RELATED.

IT WAS CONSIDERED AN ISOLATED

INCIDENT ACCORDING TO U.S.

CAPITOL POLICE.

A WOMAN DRIVING A BLACK CAR

TRIED TO RAM HER CAR THROUGH A

BARRICADE NEAR THE WHITE HOUSE.

A HIGH SPEED CHASE ENSUED AND

ENDED NEARBY ON CAPITOL HILL.

UNDERSTAND SHOTS WERE FIRED, NOT

SURE HOW MANY, ONE OFFICER, AT

LEAST ONE OFFICER INJURED.

THERE ARE REPORTS THAT THE WOMAN

WAS SHOT AND KILLED.

I SHOULD MENTION THAT IS NOT

CONFIRMED.

MANY AREAS ARE STILL CORDED OFF.

AS WE WERE MAKING OUR WAY TO

CAPITOL HILL, MANY AREAS AROUND

THE WHITE HOUSE WERE CLOSED OFF.

WE SHOULD MENTION THIS IS NOT

CONSIDERED TERRORISM RELATED BUT

COMES ON THE HEELS OF VERY

INTENSE NEGOTIATIONS ON CAPITOL

HILL.

A LOT OF PEOPLE FRUSTRATED OVER

THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.

JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO WE HAD A

SHOOTING AT THE NAVAL YARD.

VERY TENSE MOMENTS IN THE

NATION'S CAPITOL.

THANK YOU, JOHN.

CBN NEWS WILL CONTINUE FOLLOWING

THIS STORY AT CBN.COM.

AND IN OTHER NEWS, DAY 3 OF

THE PARTIAL SHUTDOWN OF THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT.

IT APPEARS IT IS NO CLOSER TO

REOPENING.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PUT THE BLAME ON

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN

BOEHNER AFTER A MEETING MADE NO

PROMISE IN ENDING THE BUDGET

DISPUTE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: SPEAKER JOHN

BOEHNER WON'T LET THE BILL GET A

YES OR NO VOTE.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO ANGER THE

EXTREMIST IN HIS PARTY.

JOHN BOEHNER: ALL WE ARE

ASKING IS A DISCUSSION AND

FAIRNESS FOR THE PEOPLE UNDER

'OBAMACARE.' THE PRESIDENT

MAINTAINS HE WILL NOT NEGOTIATE

UNTIL INCLUDING HEALTH CARE

UNTIL THE SHUT DOWN HAS ENDING.

SPEAKER BOEHNER COULD REOPEN THE

GOVERNMENT IF IT HAS NO CHANGES

TO 'OBAMACARE.'

ON TWITTER HASHTAGS LIKE DEAR

CONGRESS AND GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWNS HAVE TAKEN OVER

TRENDINGS.

IF YOU ARE ON TWITTER, WE WANT

TO CONNECT WITH YOU @CBN NEWS.

A POTENTIAL SHUT DOWN

REGARDING THE CLOSING OF THE

WORLD WAR II CENTER IN

WASHINGTON.

IF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

WON'T REOPEN THE MEMORIAL, IT

WILL BE OBLIGATED TO FILE A

LAWSUIT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE.

REPORTER: FOR SIX MONTHS,

96-YEAR-OLD EUGENE MORGAN WAITED

FOR HIS FIRST VISIT.

WORLD WAR II VET SERVED IN THE

PACIFIC AND FIGHTING ALONG THE

CANAL.

HE DOESN'T OFFER MUCH IN

DETAILS.

I CAN SAY I WAS THERE.

REPORTER: HE TRAVELED WITH

SON, JEFF, ALL THE WAY TO

ARKANSAS TO SEE THE MEMORIAL

RUNNING INTO THANKFUL AMERICANS.

I AM THANKFUL FOR ALL THE

PEOPLE IN AMERICA AND PRAYED FOR

US IN WORLD WAR II.

REPORTER: THE TRIP WAS NEARLY

RUINED.

THEY ALONG WITH 100 VETS FOUND

THE MEMORIAL BARRICADED AND

BLOCKED TO THE PUBLIC.

THEY GOT UP AT 3:00 A.M. AND

LAND HERE AND SEE BARRICADES IS

UNACCEPTABLE.

REPORTER: WORLD WAR II

MEMORIAL IS ONE OF THE MANY

DESTINATIONS TOURISTS COME TO

SEE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR

THESE VETS THEY WEREN'T GOING TO

LET THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN.

LAWMAKERS OPENED UP THE MEMORIAL

SO FOLKS LIKE EUGENE COULD GET

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

THAT HASN'T SPILLED OVER INTO

RESOLVING THE BUDGET.

WE ARE GOING TO SIGN THIS

LETTER TO SPEAKER BOEHNER ASKING

WE HAVE A VOTE ON A CLEAN

FUNDING RESOLUTION IMMEDIATELY

SO GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONING CAN

RESUME AND AMERICANS CAN MOVE ON

WITH THEIR LIVES.

I VISITED WITH SEVERAL OF THE

VETERANS FROM KANSAS THIS

MORNING.

THEY HAVE TOLD ME TO STAND FIRM.

WE ARE FIGHTING TO SAVE THIS

COUNTRY FROM CERTAIN FISCAL

DISASTER IF WE CONTINUE DOWN

THIS PATH.

REPORTER: THE IMPASSE LEAVES

EUGENE'S SON FRUSTRATED.

THEY HAVE SACRIFICED A LOT

AND SAD TO SEE AMERICA CANNOT

WORK TOGETHER.

REPORTER: STILL HE IS GLAD

HIS DAD GOT TO SEE THE TRIBUTE

TO THE GREATEST GENERATION FOR

HIMSELF.

GREAT FATHER, GREAT MAN.

LOVES THE LORD AND AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

HE WOULD GLADLY SERVE TODAY IF

HE COULD.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

PASTOR CHUCK SMITH DIED

TODAY.

HE WAS A LEADER NT JESUS

MOVEMENT IN THE 60S AND 70S.

SMITH WAS 86.

TURNING OVERSEAS, UNITED

MOST IN NEED IN A SAFE MANNER.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

REPORTER: THE UNITED NATIONS

STATEMENT CAME AS INTERNATIONAL

SECURING WORK SITES.

THEY WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND

DESTROYED BY 2014.

ASSAD GOVERNMENT'S ABILITY TO

MANUFACTURE CHEMICAL WEAPONS

MUST BE SCRAPPED BY NOVEMBER

1ST.

PROJECT ON CHEMICAL WEAPONS

ELIMINATION SHOULD NOT PREVENT

THE WORLD FROM MEETING

HUMANITARIAN NEEDS OF SYRIAN

PEOPLE.

WE SHOULD NOT FORGET CONFLICT

IS CONTINUING AND THE SITUATION

IS EVER DETERIORATING.

REPORTER: MORE THAN TWO

MILLION SYRIANS ARE REFUGEES IN

NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES, FIVE

MILLION INTERNALLY DISPLACED.

ONE REFUGEE IS CREATED EVERY

15 SECONDS, THERE ARE ANOTHER 11

REFUGEES SINCE WE HAVE BEEN

SPEAKING THIS MORNING.

REPORTER: FEW CHILDREN ATTEND

SCHOOLS.

FIGHTING.

THEY CALL ON ALL PARTIES TO CALL

THE ASSAD REGIME.

INTERNATIONAL PEACE CONFERENCE

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

IN EGYPT, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

IS CRITICIZING FOR OUSTING

MORSI.

THIS TIME THE BROTHERHOOD

COMPARING MILITARY GOVERNING TO

ROMAN EMPEROR NERO AND LIKELY TO

SPARK TENSION BETWEEN

BROTHERHOOD AND MILITARY.

BOTH SIDES PLAN TO GATHER IN

TAHRIR SQUARE THIS WEEKEND.

JOHN KERRY SAYS IRAN WILL

HAVE TO PROVE THEY ARE NOT

DEVELOPING A CHEMICAL WEAPON.

HIS COMMENTS CAME AFTER ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WARNED THE WEST NOT TO

TRUST IRAN.

KERRY SAYS THEY WILL NOT TAKE

ANY IRANIAN OFFER AT FACE VALUE.

COMING UP, CBN SITS DOWN WITH

THE STARS FROM "GRACE

UNPLUGGED."

A NEW MOVIE OPENS TOMORROW

CALLED "GRACE UNPLUGGED."

IT IS ABOUT A YOUNG WORSHIP

LEADER AND DREAMS OF BECOMING A

BIG STAR OUTSIDE THE CHURCH

WALLS.

WILL THE PRICE OF FAME PROVE TO

BE TOO HIGH?

I HAVE THE INSIDE LOOK AT THE

STORY.

*

18-YEAR-OLD GRACE GREW UP

SINGING IN CHURCH WHERE THE

WORSHIP LEADER IS HER FATHER, A

FORMER FAMOUS LEADER THAT GAVE

UP THE WILDLIFE TO BECOME A

PASTOR.

GRACE IS DETERMINED TO TASTE THE

STARDOM SHE HAS ALWAYS DREAMED

OF AND RUNS TO HOLLYWOOD WITHOUT

HER PARENT'S BLESSING.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH

FUN WITH.

A.J. MCCULLKA PLAYS THE ROLE

OF GRACE.

WHAT IS THE CRUX OF THE MOVE

VI?

SHE KIND OF WILL DO ANYTHING

AT A CERTAIN POINT.

SHE DOESN'T MAKE A BUNCH OF

HORRIBLE DECISIONS, SHE GETS

CLOSE TO GOING TOO FAR.

THIS IS YOUR FIRST BIG MAJOR

FILM DEBUT AS A MAJOR CHARACTER,

HOW EXCITED ARE YOU?

I AM EXCITED A LOT.

IT IS A BLESSING BECAUSE I

DIDN'T EVER THINK THIS FILM

WOULD GET THIS MUCH EXCITEMENT.

THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE

DOING.

AFTER JAMES DENTON PLAYS

GRACE'S PROTECTIVE FATHER.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN A

CHRISTIAN MOVIE?

THEY MIGHT HAVE KNOWN, MY

FIRST JOB WAS MINISTER OF MUSIC,

WORKED IN CHRISTIAN RADIO FOR A

WHILE.

MIGHT HAVE KNOWN I HAD THAT

BACKGROUND THAT I WOULD HAVE HAD

A PROPENSITY TOWARDS A PROJECT.

WHEN I HEARD ABOUT IT, I WAS

ATTRACTED TO IT.

I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH.

TRUST ME, YOU BLUE SAPPHIRE

AWAY.

IN THIS CASE I THOUGHT THE

JOURNEY WAS EXCEPTIONALLY

WRITTEN.

CHARACTER OF MOSSY WAS OFFERING

GENERAL OPPORTUNITIES AND WASN'T

DEMONIZED WHICH I THOUGHT WAS

POWERFUL IN THE END.

IN THE MOVIE, JUST LIKE MANY

PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE, GRACE MUST

DECIDE WHAT KIND OF PERFORMER

SHE IS GOING TO BE.

GRACE IS LURED BY FAME, LURED

BY THE WORLD AND SUCCESS AND

MAKING A NAME FOR HERSELF AND IN

HER SPECIFIC STORY, SHE HAS A

CHANGE OF HEART.

YOU KNOW, COMES TO FIND OUT THAT

LIVING FOR FAMILY AND FOR GOD IS

A MUCH MORE FULFILLING WAY TO

LIVE FOR GRACE.

"GRACE UNPLUGGED" OPENS

ACROSS THE NATION ON OCTOBER

4TH.

LOOKS LIKE A REALLY GOOD

MOVIE, WENDY. I THINK IT IS

IMPORTANT AT A TIME WHEN MILEY

CYRUS IS GOING A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

IT IS A GREAT MOVIE FOR YOUNG

PEOPLE TO WATCH WITH PARENTS.

I AGREE.

UP NEXT, THE MAN TARGETED BY

TERRORIST AND HIS INCREDIBLE

STORY OF SURVIVAL WHEN WE COME

BACK.

NEW SECURITY FOOTAGE FROM THE

TERRORIST ATTACK IN KENYA SHOWS

FOUR MEN RAIDING THE WESTGATE

MALL.

THIS NEW VIDEO PROVES IT IS

LEADING SOME TO QUESTION WHY IT

TOOK DAYS FOR MILITARY FORCES TO

GET THE SITUATION AT THE MALL

UNDER CONTROL.

THE SEPTEMBER ATTACK LEFT 67

PEOPLE DEAD.

AL-QAEDA LINKED TERROR GROUP

AL-SHABAB HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY.

AL-SHABAB HAS TERRORIZED SOMALIA

FOR YEARS AND MUCH OF THE TIME

CHRISTIANS ARE IN THE LINE OF

FIRE.

IN TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT,

GARY LANE REPORTS.

REPORTER: SOMALIA ISLAMIST

TERRORIST GROUP AL-SHABAB

RECENTLY JOINED WITH AL-QAEDA.

SPECIFIC TARGETS ARE CHRISTIAN

CONVERTS FROM ISLAM.

THIS VIDEO SWEPT THE INTERNET IN

SEPTEMBER 2008, THE BRUTAL

BEHEADING OF THIS AID WORKER WHO

CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY IN

2005.

ONE YEAR AGO THIS MUSLIM CONVERT

TO CHRISTIANITY WAS AWAKENED BY

AL-SHABAB SOLDIERS.

WE AGREED TO PROTECT HIS

IDENTITY AND GIVE HIM A

DIFFERENT NAME, ABDI.

THEY RANSACKED MY HOUSE.

THEY HAD CROSSES ON THEM.

ABDE WAS TAKEN AWAY, TORTURED

AND IMPRISONED.

I WAS BLINDFOLDED AND BEAT ME

UP WITH A WOODEN BATON AND

WANTED TO KNOW WHERE I GOT THE

BIBLE PAGES AND IF I KNEW OF ANY

OTHERS LIKE ME.

WHEN THEY TOOK THE BLINDFOLD

OFF, I NOTICED THREE DEAD

BODIES.

THEY PLACED THEM THERE JUST TO

FIGHTI

THREATEN.

WE OPENED IT, RAN TO THE WALL

AND STARTED CLIMBING.

THE GUARDS OPENED FIRE ON US.

BULLETS KILLED ONE OF MY CELL

ME

MATES.

HE STILL SUFFERS PHYSICAL

PAIN FROM THE TORTURE HE

ENDURED.

SPIRITUALLY HE FEELS CLOSER TO

GOD.

I AM STRONGER SPIRITUALLY.

PEOPLE PRAYED FOR ME TO ESCAPE.

THEIR PRAYERS ARE WHAT SAVED MY

LIFE.

SOMALI CHRISTIAN LEADERS SAYS

200 CHRISTIANS EXIST.

THIS WOMAN SUFFERED PUNISHMENT

AND HUMILIATION.

AS A CHRISTIAN SHE COULD NOT

BRING HERSELF TO ABIDE BY AL

AL-SHAB

AL-SHABAB'S REQUIREMENT.

POLICE SIMILAR TO THESE ON

PATROL NOTICE HER WALKING IN

PUBLIC WITHOUT A BURQA.

THEY SAID THE CLOTHING I WAS

WEARING WAS UNACCEPTABLE.

THEY SAID I WAS NAKED.

SHE RECEIVED A PUBLIC

FLOGGING SIMILAR TO THIS WOMAN

FROM THE TALIBAN.

SHE RECEIVED 30 LASHES.

SHE INCHED HER WAY HOME DESPITE

HER INJURIES.

I WAS BLEEDING.

MY FLESH WAS PEELING AND

EXTREMELY PAINFUL.

FOZIA SAYS IT IS TOO RISKY TO

OWN A BIBLE SO SHE LISTENS

TONIGHTLY CHRISTIAN RADIO MUSIC

FROM NEIGHBORING TANZANIA.

WHAT HAPPENS TO OTHER SOMALI

CHRISTIANS WHEN THEIR LIVES ARE

THREATENED?

SOME ARE RECEIVING HELP FROM AN

AMERICAN MISSION GROUP.

THIS SAFE HOUSE NOT ONLY GIVES

TOMORROWER MUSLIMS A PLACE TO

EAT AND SLEEP AND PROVIDES THEM

WITH DISCIPLESHIP.

IT IS RUN BY MATURE BELIEVERS

WHO HOST NO MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE

AT A TIME.

EVENTUALLY THE SAFE HOUSE WILL

HELP RESIDENTS TO LIFE ON THEIR

OWN.

NOWHERE TO GO, SHE RETURNED

TO HER MOTHER'S WHERE SHE

DELIVERED HER BABY.

WHEN HER FAMILY DISCOVERED SHE

BECAME A CHRISTIAN, THEY KICKED

HER OUT.

HE THREATENED TO KILL ME IF I

DIDN'T LEAVE.

SHE WAS FORCED TO LIVE ON THE

STREET WHERE HER INFANT.

I WAS PRAYING GOD WOULD GIVE

ME A HOUSE WHERE I COULD SLEEP.

THIS IS A VERY GOOD HOUSE.

A HOUSE OF WORSHIP, A HOUSE OF

GOD.

HE ANSWERED MY PRAYERS.

FOZIA AND OTHER SOMALI

CHRISTIANS ARE PRAYING FOR A

BETTER LIFE, ONE FREE FROM THE

OPPRESSION OF AL-SHABAB AND

OTHER ISLAMISTS.

PRAY WE WILL LIVE OUR LIFE

CLOSER TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND

ENDURE THE WAY OF LIFE IN THIS

ISLAMIC NATION.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS, SOMALIA.

UP NEXT, A MAN TWO

MILLILITERS AWAY FROM CERTAIN

DEATH SAYS GOD SAVED HIS LIFE.

A MAN FROM MINNEAPOLIS

CREDITS GOD FOR SAVING HIS LIFE.

THE 58-YEAR-OLD CARPENTER WAS

WORKING, HIS NAIL GUN BACKFIRED

SHOOTING A THREE AND A HALF INCH

SPIKE INTO HIS CHEST.

HIS WIFE RUSHED HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL FEARING HE WOULD LEAVE

HER AND THEIR SEVEN KIDS.

THE NAIL MISSED K EE EED CORONARY ARTERY

BY TWO MILLIMETERS.

SURGEONS REMOVED THE NAIL

REPLACING IT WITH TWO STITCHES.

EUGENE SAID IT WAS THE LORD THAT

SAVED HIM AND STILL PLANS TO

MAKE A CHEST VEST.

MILLIMETERS.
