HALA GORANI, CNN INTERNATIONAL ANCHOR: Hello, everyone. I'm Hala Gorani. We are live at CNN London. Thanks for being with us. This is the WORLD RIGHT NOW.

Well, ISIS terrorists stage a deadly attack in another major world capital, this time in Indonesia. It's the first time that's happened there.

Two civilians are dead and more than 20 other people were injured in a series of explosions and gun battles in Central Jakarta.

The city's police chief says the militant who plotted the attack, is continuing to lead ISIS in the region. Another case of ISIS franchising. Asia Pacific editor, Andrew Stevens reports.


ANDREW STEVENS, CNN INTERNATIONAL ASIA PACIFIC EDITOR (voice-over): Terror returns to the streets of Indonesia. As multiple explosions erupt in the capital of Jakarta. Targeting a busy intersection near the United Nations building.

Police blame ISIS linked militants for the coordinated attacks, which left multiple casualties including foreigners. First a suicide bombing hit a Starbucks cafe.

Then moments later, according to police, two other militants seized a pair of foreigners and began shooting at people on the streets. Police arrived on the scene and opened fire before the hostage takers hit back with grenades.

Then police say two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a nearby police post. Panic spread through the streets as confusion grew over the number of attackers and their location.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (via telephone): So we ran rushing through the building, then a third bomb went off. We realized this is really bad. We got up to our office and we heard a fourth and a fifth and a sixth bomb. And we heard exchange of small arms fire in front of the building.

STEVENS: A massive deployment of the army locking down the area as they hunted for more suspects. In that search, authorities uncovered half a dozen unexploded bombs in the area. Indonesia's president who is currently visiting West Java urging people to stay calm.

JOKO WIDODO, INDONESIAN PRESIDENT (through translator): We condemn these attacks that have disturb the peace of society and we want to spread this message to the nation and society. We as a country we should not be frightened by what has happened this attack. We should stay calm because everything will be under control.

STEVENS: Indonesia is no stranger to the threat of terrorism, but this is the first major bombing since 2009 when the Ritz Carlton and the J.W. Marriott Hotels in Jakarta were hit in simultaneous attacks killing seven people.

Deadly bomb attacks also ripped through the popular tourist island of Bali in 2002 and again in 2005. These previous attacks were blamed on Jemaah Islamiya, a Southeast Asian militant group linked to al Qaeda.

But the police announcement that Thursday's attacks are linked to ISIS suggests a dangerous new threat in Indonesia's fight against terror. Andrew Stevens, CNN.


GORANI: Ivan Watson joins me now live with the latest details from Jakarta. So what more do we know about these attackers? Any more believed to be at large as well, Ivan?

IVAN WATSON, CNN SENIOR INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: At this point, there is no manhunt under way. As you can see, in the square where this attack took place, where the militants came in with grenades and guns and suicide vests and attacked that Starbucks, there are hardly any police right now.

So that gives you a sense that after this attack things have calmed down quite a bit. Now ISIS has claimed responsibility. They have said that they want to get rid of what they call the Crusader Alliance and drive them from Muslim lands.

We also know that the Jakarta police have announced that they have actually named a suspect, a man they call Baroon Naim (ph), an Indonesian that they say went to Syria to fight alongside ISIS.

[15:05:01]And they accused him of trying to set up a new ISIS network in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. This, we're going to point out is a traffic police booth that was attacked.

It was also one of the targets of this attack that left at least two people dead, civilians, a foreigner, and an Indonesian. And as you can see, Hala, there are messages of condolences that people have put here, with flowers.

I've been talking to some Indonesians coming here at 2:00 in the morning local time, one young man saying I came here because I wanted to pray for the victims and prove that we are not afraid of these extremists right now -- Hala.

GORANI: And let me ask you, the death toll is two individuals, five attackers. Was the police and security forces response very quick, does that explain how they were able to do more damage?

WATSON: I don't think there's a simple answer to that. When you watch some of the video, you see relatively small explosions that were going off in this square. Indonesia as you have heard in Andrew's report has experienced catastrophic, mass casualty attacks.

Fortunately this was not one of those and it did not also fit the mass casualty numbers that we saw in the Paris attacks, just a few months ago.

So whether it is a result of incompetence of the attackers or the swift work of the Indonesian security forces or perhaps to the fact that the Indonesian security forces just last month in a run-up to new years were carrying out large scale operations.

And trying to crackdown on security because there were already indicators that there could be plan for some type of a New Year attack. All of these could have contributed perhaps to the fact that this was not a massive casualty incident.

Even though it was deadly and it has frightened people here and it's the worst attack that Jakarta has seen in six years -- Hala.

GORANI: All right, Ivan Watson, our senior international correspondent, live in Jakarta. Thanks very much.

Indonesians are expressing their solidarity on social media such as #wearenotafraid, #jakartafightback, and #indonesiaunite.

Photos of Jakarta have also popped up on Instagram with inspirational messages such as "Be strong Jakarta" and "Be strong Indonesia. We saw in the aftermath of the Paris attacks as well. People showing their unity and their support and expressing their grief online.

OK, let's the turn our attention now to something completely different. But a new chapter in a story we have been following for quite some time. It's another scandal in world sport.

There's been a scathing new report from the world anti-doping agency, claiming that corruption was, quote, "embedded" at the governing body of world athletics, the IAAF. It says the corruption came right from to the top from the former president there.

But investigator, Dick Pound, had more positive words to the say about the former president's successor, Sebastian Coe.


DICK POUND, CHAIRMAN, WADA COMMISSION: We were careful to point out that the council could not have been aware of the situation, and we hold to that. But as far as the ability of Lord Coe to remain at the head of the IAAF, I think it's a fabulous opportunity for the IAAF to see this opportunity and under strong leadership to move forward on this.


GORANI: Well, let's get the very latest on this report. Patrick Snell joins me now. We remember, of course, that a previous finding implicated Russian athletics a lot. This particular report, what was the big take away from it.

PATRICK SNELL, CNN WORLD SPORT: Yes, I think what's particularly damaging here, Hala, is the part two of this report. We were promised a certain wow factor from the Commissioner Dick Pound.

And we got it to some extent, not really I think what most people were focusing on, but what we have got here, is the previous regime, the one centered under the former IAAF president.

The now 82-year-old Senegalese, (inaudible), as they say, the commission finding him responsible for organizing and enabling the conspiracy and corruption as it was put by Dick Pound.

It appears to have led to all these athletes, Hala, and officials being bribed to cover up positive doping results. That is utterly shocking to those who follow and love the sport.

As you said up the top, the report confirming corruption was embedded in track and field's world governing body under the act, and intriguingly, the IAAF Council could not have been unaware of the state of doping that was going on.

That of course includes the current President Seb Coe Those allegations against (inaudible), they are, as we reported late last year, under the subject of a French criminal investigation right now.

[15:10:09]Ramifications too for the (inaudible) family as a whole. I'm referring to his son as well. His son, at the end of an Interpol, they have actually issued a wanted notice for the son, (inaudible). He's a former marketing consultant for the IAAF. He is already banned for life from athletics.

So it all comes back though in a sense to the current incumbent, the current president of the IAAF, Seb Coe. Let's just remind our viewers, he's only recently taken the job, of course, it was in August of 2015 that he became the IAAF president.

A great career and of course, himself, a storied athlete, a two-time Olympic gold medalist from Moscow in 1980 and L.A. in 1984. The man as well who helped oversee a successful London Olympics in England back in 2012.

Of course, he actually came into our studios earlier this week and told our Amanda Davis that he was not worried about any allegations that were set to be made against him.

On that score he was absolutely right because he got that ringing endorsement of sorts from Dick Pound, Hala. So again, this is a huge day for the sport of athletics, how the sport will be responding moving forward is intriguing everyone right now.

GORANI: Right. We'll see if then this organization can move forward into a new era. Thanks very much, Patrick Snell.

Still to come tonight, it was a brazen heist that saw millions disappear from jewelry vaults in Central London. It sounded like a movie script. Today, a jury delivered its verdict in the case and it is very real for those who are involved.


GORANI: All right, it was a heist straight out of a Hollywood film. Thieves targeting vaults in London's jewelry porter grabbing some $20 million in valuables.

Today three men were convicted in court. So that brings to seven the number of people facing hard jail time for, quote, "The biggest burglary in English legal history," as it's being called. Here's CNN's Phil Black.


PHIL BLACK, CNN INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): At a glance, it looks innocuous. A white transit van travels through the back streets of London at the start of last year's Easter long weekend.

Nearby two men in high visibility vests are on foot. Again on the face of it, unremarkable. But this was the moment caught on security cameras that a $20 million jewelry heist began to unfold.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It was one of the largest burglaries that has ever taken place within London in recent times. It was meticulously planned over a three-year period.

BLACK: The target, the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company, in the heart of London's diamond district.

[15:15:05]This video shows how the gang of thieves used a fire escape to come and go from the building over a period of three days, careful to hide their faces from the camera.

Once inside, they used a lift shaft to access the basement, they cut through metal bars, and drilled through a thick concrete wall to climb into the vault, where they raided dozens of boxes containing precious stones and valuables.

The thieves casually loaded two wheelie bins into the transit van and drove away, leaving little forensic evidence. In the end investigators followed data from land lines and mobile phones to a gang led by pension aged highly experienced criminals.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They obviously secured their own pension part.

BLACK: The police began their surveillance operation planting listening devices in their cars and swooped in to make an arrest after the suspects were seen moving some of the stolen goods.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now (inaudible) they've got away with it and they were talking films being made themselves.

BLACK: Four men fought the charges in court, four others admit they were involved. One insisting he wanted to come clean, showed pleasant where he hid part of the loot, under a memorial stone in a London cemetery.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They were callous, they had no consideration for those victims of crime whatsoever. Other members actually looked past their actual age, they were well schooled in relation to criminal activity. Members of the community should look past the glamorization of this crime.

BLACK: Prosecutors say only around one third of the stolen items have been recovered. Around $14 million worth is still missing. Phil Black, CNN, London.


GORANI: Where are those jewels? All right, well, it was a terrible day for the French car maker, Renault. Its shares crashed at 20 percent Thursday, they ended up closing down a little more than 10 percent. That's because European investigators are proving automakers over possible emissions cheating.

Investors were spooked after French police raided Renault offices looking for indications that the company may have rigged vehicle emissions just as Volkswagen has done in the past. But Renault says preliminary test and today's searches have not revealed any suspect software in its cars.

Let's get more on Renault and the raids. I'm joined by Paul La Monica. He is in New York. So Paul, Renault is saying we are in the clear.

Yes, indeed, they did come to our factories. They didn't find anything untoward. So why were investors still so freaked out at the close of trade in Europe? The shares are still down 10 percent.

PAUL R. LA MONICA, CNN MONEY DIGITAL CORRESPONDENT: Yes, 10 percent is obviously a huge drop, but they did bounce very sharply from the lows, as you mentioned, Hala, they were down more than 20 percent at one point.

I think people were obviously spooked by the news that there was a raid that is never viewed as a good sign for a publicly traded company and this sounds suspiciously like what Volkswagen has done.

So because Renault is being looked at getting, lumped into that same group with VW, that's understandably causing some concern, I do think, though, that investors probably have to keep an eye on the situation.

It does appear as if for now, Renault is not the equivalent of Volkswagen, and that even though the investigation may continue, there isn't any evidence as of yet that this company is in the bad shape that VW is in right now all around the world because of their sentence.

GORANI: And it's not just Renault, Fiat shares were down as well. What's happening there with Fiat?

LA MONICA: Yes, unrelated to the emissions scandal that is really hurting VW and now apparently other European car makers. Fiat Chrysler shares fell because the company is being sued by some dealers in Illinois.

These dealers are alleging that they were being coerced by Fiat Chrysler, to report better sales than were actually happening. Fiat Chrysler has been an amazing comeback story since Chrysler went bankrupt.

Fiat took it over, it had 69 months of sales gains in a row in North America, so any thought whatsoever that Fiat Chrysler's momentum may not necessarily be what it was hyped up to be, that I think is leading to some concerns about that stock.

GORANI: Well, they have set the bar high, you mentioned the number of months in a row of increased sales. Let's talk about overall markets before I let you go.

Because we had some terrible sessions last week, off the back of some China crashes on the markets there. Today I'm looking quickly at the, there it is, the DOW is up 2 percent, 300 points higher at 16,469. Overall markets bouncing back, is there a sense that some confidence has returned to the markets?

LA MONICA: I think a little bit. We have to be careful.

[15:20:09]We have seen rallies like this in the midst of downturns like this before. I don't want to say definitively that the worst is over, but this is clearly a good sign, especially when you look at how oil prices have stabilized, Exxon and Chevron are leading the Dow today.

And we have also had big results from JPMorgan Chase. A lot of companies next week and the week after that are going to report their fourth quarter results, give outlooks for 2016.

So hopefully we'll get good report cards from corporate America and maybe that overshadows all the worries about plunging oil prices and a slowdown in China's economy.

GORANI: All right, Paul La Monica, thanks very much for joining us from New York.

Well, all day it has been the top trending topic on Twitter. It's about one man, the entertainment world is mourning the loss of another great talent, the British actor, Alan Rickman, has died at 69 after a short battle with cancer.

Rickman was an acclaimed and versatile actor both on the screen and the stage. CNN's Erin McLaughlin has more on Alan Rickman's life and career.


ERIN MCLAUGHLIN, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): The moment he appeared on screen, it was all there, the flare, the charisma, and the voice.


MCLAUGHLIN: Unmistakably, Alan Rickman, arguably most famous for his portrayal of one of the most iconic characters in the Harry Potter franchise, Professor Severus Snape. Throughout the series, it was unclear whether the professor was good or evil. Rickman was the only actor who knew how to play the devious character. The story was revealed to the rest of the world in the final film.

ALAN RICKMAN: Before I started, I rang Jo Rowling and I said you have to tell me something. And she told me one tiny piece of information, which I swore I would never share with anybody.

MCLAUGHLIN: A native Londoner, his breakout film hole was in "Die Hard's" as Hans Gruber. Rickman won a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a Screen Actor's Guild Award, for his much acclaimed portrayal of "Resbutant (ph)."

MCLAUGHLIN: Performance as the sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves landed him a bath tub.

MCLAUGHLIN: His devilish charm also extended to films like "Love Actually."

RICHARD FITZWILLIAM, FILM CRITIC: He didn't want to be remembered only as a village, he was absolute superb, he could be someone you really would love to kill, but equally, he would be someone you would be absolutely delighted if he took a shine to you.

MCLAUGHLIN: Accusing his roles, he told CNN --

RICKMAN: I don't ever judge characters that'll playing because then you would be lost.

MCLAUGHLIN: Now the world has lost one of the most versatile and recognizable actors of the screen and stage. Alan Rickman was 69.


GORANI: You're watching the WORLD RIGHT NOW. We'll be right back after a quick break. Stay with us.


GORANI: A European court has ruled that employers can have access to your private messages. Let's get more on the court's decision. I has been everywhere, on newspaper front pages. Samuel Burke joins me in New York.

So let's explain a little bit what happened here because a European court has ruled that when a company employing a certain individual actually provided printouts of his chat history, showing he had spent a lot of his time talking to his girlfriend and his family.

[15:25:04]And therefore not working, that somehow they were entitled to do so, even though the employee felt that these messages were private and they should not have access to them, right? But this sets a precedent (inaudible).

SAMUEL BURKE, CNN BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT: Even though this is the European court of human rights, I have spent the day e-mailing and talking about this with colleagues like you. So basically this employee in Romanian in 2007 was using both a work Yahoo Messenger as well as a personal one.

But that personal Yahoo Messenger was on his work computer and his bosses were recording those conversations, we don't know how exactly, but there's always software and many times messengers save logs of your conversation.

Even though he was using the personal one, there was no way for the bosses to know which one was the private one or the personal one. So this court has ruled that because they didn't though if it was private or personal and it's legitimate for them to check to see if an employee is doing professional activities during his work hours, they had a right to access his personal messages on Yahoo Messenger.

GORANI: So does this apply to not just desktop computers, not just my work laptop, but let's say a phone issued by my company and I WhatsApp a friend and I say, what are you doing and let's go to the movies, and things like that or I text for instance a friend.

It is not work related. Can my employer then pull these records and then somehow, you know, access these, what I think are private chats with other people?

BURKE: If your boss has provided you with the computer, with the phone, with the tablet, then according to experts I have talked with who have been reviewing this case, they have the right to access it.

Let me just put up on the screen what people need to remember. Number one, you already know, your company can read your company e-mail. If you're using web mail as well, they might be able to access that and read those.

Some messengers save copies of chats on to your computer so if that information is in there then your bosses might have access to that, and your company could be monitoring your personal accounts with keystroke software.

So even if you're using encrypted apps, for example, some of the software, which you can get online pretty cheap. I found stuff out there for about $50 that employers and sometimes parents use to spy on their kids.

It's logging everything you type before it ever gets encrypted and then provides people a log of the information on all these types of devices -- Hala.

GORANI: Because apps like WhatsApp are very popular precisely because they are encrypted. I mean, we know -- I mean, frankly if you send anything sensitive on work e-mail, I think you practically deserve to get caught.

But you assume that if you're sending a WhatsApp you should be safe. Let me present you with another scenario. If you send an e-mail from your personal Gmail on a work computer, that too is accessible to your employer?

BURKE: If your employee has put this type of software on, it may be recording everything that you're doing. I don't think that this is all that common actually.

We have been hearing from the heads of human resources departments saying listen, this is done on rare occasions when the company feels something might be up.

Many times they've told and employee prior to that that we're going to be looking into accounts. We are going to be monitoring. It was more common on desktop computers. It's a little less common to find this on mobile device.

But absolutely it can happen. And to your point about WhatsApp, that type of encryption, which you hear about all time. We talk about constantly is to device encryption. It's encrypted between the two points.

When you're just writing and your employer might be looking, might have software that they've installed on your phone, that's just on the device. It never traveled to another device or it hasn't been encrypted yet.

They may be recording every last letter that you type, and then they can see it long before it's ever encrypted.

GORANI: All right, I think if you want privacy, then you need your own device, that's the conclusion here.

BURKE: Are we going to keep on WhatsApping, Hala?

GORANI: What do we ever say, we are fine. We don't have anything to hide. All right, Samuel, see you later.

Still ahead on the WORLD RIGHT NOW.


GORANI: Fear and death in Indonesia as ISIS militants strike an area popular with westerners. I'll get perspective from a terrorism expert next.


GORANI: A look at our top stories this hour, ISIS is claiming responsibility for a series of terrorist attacks in Jakarta. Two civilians were killed and more than 20 others were wounded. Police say at least five attackers besieged a shopping district popular with westerners.

Also among our top stories, a scathing new report accuses key members of world track and field's governing body about knowing about widespread doping in the sport. The report by the world anti-doping agency says, corruption came right from the top and that there may be criminal repercussions.

Also the World Health Organization has declared three West African countries officially Ebola free. Some happy news for a change. That ends the outbreak that killed more than 11,000 West Africans. The WHO warns that three countries remain at risk of possible flare ups or smaller outbreaks and must therefore remain vigilant.

A French school teacher injured in Wednesday's deadly avalanche at a ski resort now faces charges of involuntary manslaughter. You'll remember three people were killed including two of the students. The school group was touring an advanced slope that was closed precisely because authorities said that the avalanche risk was high.

Let's return now to the story dominating our hour, the terrorist attacks that ISIS claims in Indonesia's capital. I'm joined now by terrorism expert, Sajjan Gohel. He is the international security director for the Asia Pacific Foundation.

It's a part of the world you know very well. So what did you make of this particular attack? It looks as though they were trying some sort of Paris style attack, it didn't work out that way.

SAJJAN M. GOHEL, INTERNATIONAL SECURITY DIRECTOR, ASIA PACIFIC FOUNDATION: Initially when news broke, that a marauding plot was being executed in Jakarta, there was concern that it draw very eerie similarities to the Paris attacks.

Fortunately, it didn't turn out that way because the number of fatalities was very low, in fact more terrorists died than civilians or police personnel, but they did try to copy the tactics and strategies of the Paris attackers.
