including South Korea and the U.S. but not China. Tropical storm Hermine

recede but there is at least one fatality though as confirmed by Florida

Governor Rick Scott. Brock Turner, the former Stanford University student

[10:00:00] ROBYN CURNOW, CNN ANCHOR: Ahead here at the "International Desk." Samsung's new smartphone has taken off the office. Melania Trump sues one of world's most popular newspapers. And what was it like to know Mother Teresa? We'll find out.

Hi there, everyone. Happy Friday. I'm Robyn Curnow at the CNN center.

And we start with a big recall impacting millions of smartphone users. Some owners of the Galaxy Note 7 say the phone caught fire while charging according to Samsung which is now halting sales and customers are waiting to hear what to do next. Well, let's go to Samuel Burk, he's at the EFA conference in Berlin, one of the world's top trade shows for high tech electronics.

Hi there. How many phones are being recalled? Where are the recalls?

SAMUEL BURKE, CNN MONEY BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY CORRESPONDENT: Robyn, an unprecedented 2.5 million Samsung Galaxy Note 7s are being recalled in 10 different countries, including South Korea and the United States. Now, like you said, I'm at on one of the biggest tech shows in the world and what people are saying here are they're surprised that this happened to Samsung but they're not surprised that it happened with a battery.

The images and video that have been posted on social media are absolutely extraordinary. People seemingly having phones that have exploded or burned up while they were charging them. Samsung says there are two different batteries in these phones and it's only happening with one of the batteries so it won't be recalled in places like China.

Samsung waited until Friday night in South Korea, their time, until after stocks were trading. So now investors will have all weekend to mull this over.

CURNOW: Certainly a lot to digest because this model have got pretty rave reviews but it certainly also this couldn't happen at a worst moment because the new iPhone launches next week, Sam.

BURKE: That's right. And what Samsung clearly was trying to do is release these phones in the months before Apple. Here at EFA, they were releasing other product lines. They wanted all the attention to be positive and on these new products before the Apple release. So really couldn't happen at a worst time. Also because Samsung is the top smartphone maker in the world. It has nearly 25 percent of market share, Robyn.

But it's not been doing well for the past couple of years but because of the line, this success with this line and those rave reviews we're talking about, Samsung is actually been doing very well in the past few months. Their stock going up about 25 percent this year. So we'll have to wait until Monday to see how investors react but certainly this is not part of the comeback story that they've had over the past few months.

CURNOW: OK. Thanks so much. Samuel Burke there. Appreciate it.

Well now, to the storm barreling through the U.S. southeast. Tropical storm Hermine is bringing wind and rain to parts of Georgia and Florida. Hermine roared ashore as a hurricane then weakened.

So far, one person in Florida has died in the storm and thousands of people are without power. The storm is moving northeast and could reform into a hurricane when it reaches the Atlantic Ocean.

Our Polo Sandoval is live in Florida with a look at Hermine's aftermath.

Hi there, Polo. What are you seeing?

POLO SANDOVAL, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Robyn, we are seeing this community slowly get back on its feet. But important to point out what you just mention there of that one fatality that's been confirmed by Florida Governor Rick Scott, that was actually at Marion County, two and a half hours south of here.

We are actually in St. Marks, the city of St. Marks which is really the closest populated area to the very location where then hurricane Hermine made landfall in the early morning hours and just as fast as the water poured in, but essentially began to recede very quickly.

The street that you see behind me was completely covered in water only a couple of hours ago. But really speaking to the city manager here in St. Marks saying that it's really incredible how fast the water has actually receded and also, how the community is now coming together for cleanup because, yes, the water did make it into some of the homes and some businesses.

But after having spoken to her, she did compare it with the last time that they saw a major tropical event and that was Hurricane Wilma about 11 years ago. The city manager here in St. Marks saying that that situation was much worse than what we witnessed here.

Again, at this point, the main point that officials want to stress is that these communities still need to get their power restored. This community included. They're still in the dark because officials actually cut off electricity before the storm blew through in an effort to try to limit damage and then of course also to prevent any future injury. But again, the main headline now coming from Florida Governor Rick Scott now, at least one fatality linked to Hermine as it continues to make its way up to the eastern seaboard. Back to you.

CURNOW: Thanks so much Polo, keeping an eye on things there for us. Thank you.

[10:05:02] Well, there's a new development in a criminal case that has sparked outrage across the U.S. A former Stanford University student who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman had just been released from prison. Brock Turner was only behind bars for three months.

Dan Simon now joins me live with all the details from California.

Hi there, Dan. This certainly hit a nerve, particularly what this young man did.

DAN SIMON, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Certainly did. It's been a huge case and we saw him walk out of the jail quickly. It was clear that Brock Turner did not want to talk to reporters. He got into a car that was waiting for him and ultimately he's headed back to his home State of Ohio where once he gets there, he'll have three days to register as a sex offender, Robyn.

This is a case that dates back to January 2015 when Turner was accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside of a fraternity party. He was ultimately caught by a pair of graduate students who were on their bicycles. Once this case got to trial, Turner tried to say that this was consensual but Robyn, the jury just didn't buy it.

But this is a case that really rose to national prominence after that powerful impact statement from the victim, talk about a gut-wrenching, emotional letter. And it really fueled the anger, Robyn, over what many perceived to be as a very lenient sentence. Turner was sentence to just six months in prison. He could have got 10 years behind bars in state prison.

So, you know, there's been a lot of criticism directed at the judge. And today, here at San Jose, where we are, there's going to be a rally with people from this area calling for the judge to be removed. So that's going to be a very interesting development to watch, Robyn.

CURNOW: Indeed. And as you mentioned, that letter, that statement from the young woman who was sexually assaulted, that didn't just touch people in the U.S. but around the world because it was just such a powerful statement of the rights of women. And this in a way, the fact that he's out three months -- after three months impacts and has bearing on her arguments. Have we heard anything from her?

SIMON: We have not heard anything from her since she released that statement. Of course, she is probably among those people who would like to see the judge removed from the bench but we actually have not heard from her directly.

We should point out that Judge Persky, Judge Aaron Persky does have his defenders. People say he is an honorable judge, that he makes fair rulings. But, you know, he is dealing with some very powerful forces because the anger has been so widespread, not just here in San Jose, but really, there's been outrage around the world over this particular sentence. And it was all because of her, all because of that letter which got so much notoriety. Vice President Joe Biden among many others who praised what the victim had to say.

CURNOW: She's very, very brave young woman. Thanks so much for reporting on this case that has touched so many people's lives.

Well, you're watching CNN. Still ahead, Donald Trump's wife takes legal action for a story suggesting she had a racy past. The accusations her lawyer calls 100 percent false and tremendously damaging. That's next.

Plus, taking a knee during U.S. national anthem but this time other American football players joined Colin Kaepernick's controversial protest against racism.


[10:10:39] CURNOW: Donald Trump's wife Melania is suing the "Daily Mail" over an article which suggested she may have once worked as an escort. The British newspaper has issued a retraction but Trump says the lawsuit will still go ahead.

Our Phil Black joins us now from London with the latest.

Hi there, Phil. So, Mrs. Trump said she's not an escort, she wasn't an escort and wants a $150 million from the newspaper who said she was.

PHIL BLACK, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Yes, a very determined, committed legal action there it would seem, Robyn. This all relates to an article that appeared the "Daily Mail" last month around the 20th. In which it was headlined in part "The very racy past of Donald Trump's Slovenian wife".

The story included an allegation attributed to a book that said the modeling agency she'd worked for in Milan was, "Something like a gentleman's club." It also pointed to an article in a Slovenian magazine which had claimed that her New York agency also, this is a quote as well, also operated as an escort agency for wealthy clients.

So, her lawyer has filed a defamation case in a U.S. court insisting that this is absolutely untrue, that is has damaged her reputation, her business, her perspective and actual economic relationships. And she's demanding compensation, but also, punitive damages as well. That is, she wants the paper to be punished for printing this.

Now, it is only after the fact that this issue has been filed in court that the "Daily Mail" has now retracted and apologized for the piece. That's appeared on their website in print over the last 24 hours. And in it the "Daily Mail" says this. This is part of it, "The article did not intend to state or suggest that these allegations are true, nor did it intend to state or suggest that Mrs. Trump ever worked as an escort or in the sex business. To the contrary, the Daily Mail newspaper article stated that there was no support for the allegations and provided adamant denials from Mrs. Trump's spokesperson." It goes on to say the point of the article was that these allegations could impact the U.S. presidential election even if they are untrue. And the "Daily Mail" apologizes, regrets of any such misinterpretation.

Now, despite that retraction, as you touched on there, Mrs. Trump's lawyer said they are going to proceed with this. Her lawyer is a man named Charles Harder who some people may know from a recent breach of privacy case involving the former wrestler Hulk Hogan and the Gawker website in which Hulk Hogan sued that website and the resulting payout was some $140 million, effectively shutting down that website as a business.

In this case, as you touched on, he's pushing for $150 million because he believes that these claims, these lies as he says, are so egregious, malicious and harmful to Mrs. Trump and her reputation. Robyn.

CURNOW: OK, Phil Black, laid it all for us. Thank you so much.

Well, we all know about Donald Trump -- all we know about Donald Trump's health comes from a bizarrely worded letter written by his doctor. It declares that Mr. Trump would be the, "Healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

Well, our Drew Griffin spoke with the doctor behind that controversial letter. Here's his report.



We met Donald Trump's doctor entering his Park Avenue office just as he's done for the last 35 years.

How it's going?


GRIFFIN: Harold Bornstein is a 69-year-old gastroenterologist who took over this practice from his father and suddenly finds his lifetime of serving patients being turned upside down because of one letter.

Hey, can I ask you a couple of questions? Did you really write that letter?

BORNSTEIN: I really write that letter. Yes.

GRIFFIN: It is a letter Donald Trump produced last December to prove he is healthy. A note that has been ripped apart by other doctors because of what they is strange wording, medically incorrect terms and it's unprofessional conclusions. "Trump's test results were astonishingly excellent," he writes. "And if elected, Mr. Trump I can state unequivocally will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." Combined with his somewhat unconventional looks and his unconventional patient, Bornstein has been made out in the aggressive election coverage to be somewhat eccentric.

[10:15:01] So, can we just ask you a few questions without making .

The soft spoken doctor finally agreed if we weren't intrusive or insulting to take a few questions on the bench outside his office, warning as his wife would not be so hospitable.

BORNSTEIN: Right here is fine. My wife will come back, she'll get angry.

GRIFFIN: The press has kind of try to make you into this some kind of a lunatic or something.

BORNSTEIN: Well, a lunatic doesn't have my credentials. The only thing I wanted to do in my life is practice with my father which I managed to do for 35 years until his death in this office.

GRIFFIN: We've looked, believe me, sir, we've looked at your record, we've looked for any signs of trouble. You have had a couple of medical malpractices civil suits that were settled.

BORNSTEIN: Well, that's normal.

GRIFFIN: The fact is that is normal for a long practicing doctor. A few malpractice suits from decades ago settled. He's never lost his license, has never faced any criminal allegations whatsoever. And experts CNN has talked with believe whatever his looks or his clients, Dr. Bornstein seems like a fully competent medical professional.

Are there any regrets you have getting involved in this crazy election?

BORNSTEIN: No. These people are my patients. I take care of them the right way.

GRIFFIN: And you fully -- whatever you wrote in that letter, you fully believe Mr. Trump is capable of being president physically?

BORNSTEIN: Oh, absolutely. There's no question about it.

GRIFFIN: Why did you write that letter? Was it a joke, the words you chose, the way you wrote it?

BORNSTEIN: I was just rushed for time. I had people to see.

GRIFFIN: There was no Trump limo waiting outside he says. He just wrote a letter for a patient that he's been seeing for the last 30 years. A patient his mother found.

What do you make of being interjected into this election?

BORNSTEIN: I make the interjection. I grew up in Jamaica, New York. There's my wife. I grew up in Jamaica, New York. They lived across the street. My mother found him as a patient from a member of his golf club and he stayed for 30 years.

GRIFFIN: And then, as he warned, his wife arrived.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You're done. You're done. You're on private property.

GRIFFIN: OK. OK, ma'am we're not .

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We're going to call the police. I'm going to call the police.


GRIFFIN: Thank you, I appreciate you doctor.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I'm going to call the police right now. They're on private property.

GRIFFIN: Thank you doctor. Thank you very much.


CURNOW: Quite a report there from our Drew Griffin.

Well, American football player Colin Kaepernick refused to stand again for the U.S. national anthem and got booed ahead of his protest.

This was the scene when Kaepernick, jersey number 7 there took the field with the San Francisco 49ers against home team San Diego Chargers. It was Chargers' annual salute to the military night. And Kaepernick says he will continue to protest racism and discrimination in the U.S. One of his teammates also took a knee during the anthem as another player in another game.

Well, CNN'S sports correspondent and former NFL player Coy Wire joins me now. This has really hit a nerve and he continues to take a stand.

COY WIRE, CNN SPORTS CORRESPONDENT: Yeah, absolutely. And he said he's continue to take that stand until he sees significant change in regards to what he's calling racial injustice in our country. But he has said from the very beginning, Robyn, that he never meant to disrespect the military by sitting during the national anthem.

So, last night, when that anthem played something interesting happened. Instead of sitting on a water cooler away from his teammates like he had at the past three games, Robyn, Kaepernick knelt on one knee surrounded by teammates and there's one joining him on a knee. That's Eric Reid and former NFL player and army veteran Nate Boyer standing next to Kaepernick there on the right showing support.

Kaepernick invited Boyer to this game after reading an open letter Boyer had written in support of Kaepernick. They had an hour and a half conversation connecting before the game, respecting one another. Now afterwards, Kaepernick did some explaining and he stood by his reasoning for the protest.


COLIN KAEPERNICK, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS QUARTERBACK: The media painted this as I'm anti-American, anti-men and women of the military. And that's not the case at all. This is really something about human rights. It's about the people. This isn't about anything other than that. And some people aren't given the same rights, aren't given the same opportunities as others.


WIRE: Now, Kaepernick also went on to say that he's going to donate $1 million to charities that help communities in need, Robyn. That's powerful stuff and people are listening, like up at the coast in California, Oakland, Seahawk's player Jeremy Lane showing support for Kaepernick, sitting during the national anthem before his team's game in the final pre- season match against the Raiders. Lane saying that he likes what Kaepernick is doing and wants to stand behind him.

Now, Kaepernick also answered some questions about these infamous socks that he was wearing. He's wearing on practice. They're black socks with pigs wearing police hats. And he says that he is not trying to bash all police officers out there, just some.


[10:20:11] KAEPERNICK: I have uncles, I have friends who are cops and I have great respect for them because they're doing it for the right reason and they genuinely want to protect and help people. That's not the case with all the cops and the cops that are murdering people and are racist, are putting other cops in danger like my family, like my friends. And that's the issue that needs to be addressed.


WIRE: Now, Robyn, he certainly has it objectors, a lot of people who are unapproving of his methods for which he's using to stand up for racial injustices in our country. But he also is now getting a lot of support. You're seeing his own teammates, players from other teams even who are joining him in his cause. So it's an interesting situation.

CURNOW: It is really is because you just heard him there sort of defending himself as, you know, not being anti-American. And I mean, it certainly nothing new that athletes stand up for rights or for issues that mean something to them. I mean, Muhammad Ali is a perfect example. Why is this issue really touching so many folks?

WIRE: I think the methods he is using are out there. They're strong. I mean, not standing for a national anthem to many in this country would seem to be disrespectful might as well take the flag and throw it on the ground, you know. And people weren't hearing his message. After that, they saw that he was disrespecting the military in their mind's eye and so he had to clarify, I'm not, I respect the military, I have family members who are in the military.

I think he's had to do a lot of explaining because he's doing things like wearing these socks with pigs on them with a police hat. So people were thinking that's a blank indictment of all police officers in America and he's continually having to clarify his statements.

So, but, you know, you look at him and Lebron James, Muhammad Ali have taken measures to create positive change in our country. But Colin Kaepernick really pushing buttons with how he's going about it, maybe sometimes people losing the message behind what he's really trying to do.

CURNOW: Yeah, because I think what's so important here is that, you know, the national anthem before a sporting event in America is about American as apple pie. I think that's the key. He's really pushing a button that means something to a lot of people.

WIRE: Great point.

CURNOW: Thanks so much. Coy Wire, I appreciate it.

Well, you wouldn't expect a country to turn its back on more than $14 billion in tax revenue, would you? But that's what Ireland intends to do. The government confirmed today that it will appeal this week's ruling by the European Commission ordering Apple to pay the billions in back taxes.

There's sentiment in Ireland to reject the ruling because Apple's European headquarters there helped create thousands of jobs. And there's fear the ruling may discourage foreign investment in Ireland. Apple has already said it will appeal.

And on Sunday, Mother Teresa will be declared a saint by Pope Francis. She's best known for dedicating her life to the poor of Kolkata in India. The city once known as Calcutta is the birthplace of the Nobel Prize winner's charity.

Well, CNN's Mallika Kapur grew up there and her life was personally touched by Mother Teresa. Mallika joins us now from Hong Kong.

Hey there Mallika. Great to have you here on Idesk. Tell us about your relationship, what you knew about mother Teresa.

MALLIKA KAPUR, CNN CORRESPONDENT: You know, Robyn, for anyone who grew up in Calcutta, it was called Calcutta then, Kolkata now but I simply say Calcutta because that's how I grew up calling it Calcutta. So anyone who grew up there in the '70s and '80s, it was very common for our lives to be intertwined with Mother Teresa's or to be influenced by her simply because she was so accessible.

Now, I know she's being made a saint on Sunday, she is a Nobel Peace Prize winner but at that time she was just Mother Teresa and all the locals in the city simply call her Mother. And she lives in the heart of the city in this big gray house with these huge doors which were always open. And people from all backgrounds and different religions were always welcome.

You could go in, just to say hello. Believe it or not, you could go in to pray even if you weren't Catholic. You could go in to request the sisters to pray for you or to pray for someone who was sick if you wanted it. And the doors were always open and people were always welcome in her home.


KAPUR: When Mother Teresa came to India, a young nun following her calling, she came to this bustling city in the east and never left. Kolkata became her home. It's where my home is, too.

I enjoyed a simple, happy childhood here. It revolved around family, friends, school. And Mother Teresa figured prominently in each of those spheres of my life.

Initially, Mother Teresa was part of the Loreto order of nuns, the same order that set up this school, Loreto House, my school. And I remember sitting in these very classrooms listening to nuns tell us stories about Mother Teresa.

[10:25:05] Locals call her simply Mother. And I often saw Mother and her sisters going about their work, helping, caring, feeding the poorest of the poor. Back then, I had no idea I was watching history unfold.

She lived in the heart of the city, in this simple room where she later died. Visitors from all faiths and all walks of life were always welcome at Mother's house. It's where I first met her. She gave me this prayer and then she took my hands in her hands. She had a really firm grip and then she said to me over and over again, God bless you, my child, God bless you.

Mother adored children and many local families including mine often helped out at her home for abandoned children.

When I was a little girl, I wrote a poem on Mother Teresa and the next time I came here, I had just tagged along with my mother who is volunteering here at the children's home. And Mother Teresa met me and she said, come here, come here, I want to show something. And she had taken my poem and framed it and by framing I mean put it in a sheet of plastic and she had stuck it right here.

Some residents complained she put Kolkata on the global map for the wrong reasons, poverty and desperation. But most locals are protective of her. They said they're proud our city produced a saint.


KAPUR: And, you know, Robyn my own mother still volunteers with the missionaries of charity and I have to say it's quite heartening to see how some things remain the same. Mother Teresa is no longer there but her work and her legacy continues to live on in Kolkata.

CURNOW: And continues to make a difference. Thanks so much. Beautiful memories there. Mallika Kapur, thank you.

Well, you're watching CNN. I'm Robyn Curnow. And much more news after the break. Stay with us.


[10:30:18] CURNOW: Welcome to the "International Desk," I'm Robyn Curnow. Thanks for joining me. Here's a check of the headlines.

Samsung is recalling its new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone after some users reported the phone caught fire while charging. The recall affects 10 countries including South Korea and the U.S. but not China. Sales of the phone are now halted and the Note 7 debuted just a month ago.

Tropical storm Hermine is barreling through the southeastern U.S. at this hour. It was a hurricane when it came ashore in Florida where authorities are investigating one possible storm-related death. Parts of Florida have been there without power and there are reports of flooding.

And a former Stanford University swimmer sentenced to just six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman has been released from prison. Brock Turner was only behind bars for three months. The brevity of the sentence sparked outrage against the judge.

And today marks the grim anniversary of an event that awoke the world to the refugee crisis in the Middle East. One year ago today, a Syrian boy named Aylan Kurdi drowned and washed up on a Turkish beach. Other children have made it though through the horrors of the Syrian war but those scars will stay with them for life.

Jomana Karadsheh has the story from Jordan.


JOMANA KARADSHEH, CNN CORRESPONDENT: This could be a scene anywhere in the world, a mother recording her little girl singing. But this is not anywhere. This is Syria.
