7:05 am
the nsa leaker. edward snowden will not face the death penalty. he won't be tortured. that is about all the u.s. is promising, however, as it is going to try to persuade russia to hand over the notorious nsa leaker. we heard from attorney general eric holder. he wrote a letter saying earlier in the week the charges he faces do not carry that possibility. the united states would not seek the death penalty even if mr. snowden were charged with additional death penalty eligible crimes. >> jill dougherties that latest in the efforts to get snowden back to the united states. >> family, home in paradise. i lived in great comfort. >> reporter: the u.s. is stepping up efforts to get its hands on edward snowden getting him out of the moscow airport transit area he has been holed newspaper now for more than a month. snowden has asked russia for temporary asylum claiming that he would be tortured and kiss on face the death penalty if he is

7:07 am
taking up his son's cause, he is blasting that close congressional vote to keep the nsa surveillance program alive. >> i am extremely disappointed and angry. i'm an angry american citizen. >> reporter: the white house still isn't committing president obama to meet with putin in moscow ahead of g-20 summit talks in september. >> that's jill dougherty reporting. we have new unrest that's flaring up in egypt now. reports anywhere from 21 to 75 people have been killed. >> around the protests overnight spilling into the early morning hou hours. what's the scene like there right now? >> reporter: things are much calmer at this hour, poppy. but overnight this was one of the most intense and most violent nights we have seen ever since the ouster of former president mohamed morsi here in
7:08 am
egypt. many of those casualties and fatalities were brought to where we are, this neighborhood in east cairo. really served as a home base for the morsi backers. there is a makeshift hospital here and incredibly emotional and chaotic night at that makeshift hospital. doctors racing to treat the injured and take care of the victims. there are conflicting reports about the death toll. talked to volunteers and doctors. they say that 15 to 70 people were killed and more than 2,000 people were injured. but the health ministry here says 38 people were killed. 180 people were injured. there's also conflicting reports as to what happened. the demonstrators here say that they were peacefully protesting. when security forces fired off with live weapons and bird shot and tear gas. but the interior ministry denies that police used live weapons. they say they only fought back with tear gas. there's also conflicting frkts demonstrators about civilians and local residents getting
7:09 am
involved. many of these demonstrators here are convinced some of the people in civilian clothes were actually police with guns. so all kinds of contradicting accounts and that's not unusual because what you have here is an information war,where both sides are trying to win public opinion and some of the information that they are giving out is not always accurate. but an intense night of clashes that signals this conflict is far from over. >> reza, tell us about mohamed morsi. what's the situation with him? i understand that he's in custody and possibly paces charges. >> reporter: that is correct. first off, mob knows where he is. we talked to some western diplomats. they believe he's being moved from one defense installation to another but the prosecutor's office has come out and said that he's going to be held in custody for 15 days and he will be investigated on possible charges that he conspired with hamas to break out of jail in
7:10 am
2011. his supporters here reject that sxlam say that is proof that this interim government backed by the military is on a campaign to sideline and push aside the muslim brotherhood leaders and clear out this demonstration. these demonstrators are determined to stay here. they say they are not going to leave until mohamed morsi is reinstated. obviously that's a scenario that seems more and more unlikely. >> reza, appreciate it. this just terrible news when you think about it. >> this was the worst case scenario that has the two sides -- they tried to separate the two and then it -- the violence erupted overnight. we are following this story. the driver in the deadly train crash now stands formally accused. the crime police say he committed. we are going to have that up next. >> accused of setting fire and forced to undergo a mental evaluation. we will talk to paris hilton's psychiatrist about what can be

7:14 am
a driver of reckless homicide in wednesday's deadly crash of a high-speed train. >> jose plan sis skoe being held at police headquarters and investigating judge has to decide whether or not to press formal charges in that crash that killed at least 78 people. karl penhaul is at the crash site in northwestern spain. karl, what's taking the judge this period of time to make a decision on this? is it -- is it not before him? >> reporte >> reporter: essentially the judge has 72 hours to decide -- set up the formal defense by the police. the judge has 72 hours to decide what formal charges he will present. it was only this morning in fact the train driver was well enough to be transferred from hospital to police headquarters because although we saw him being led away from the crash site with some assistance, we do see that he's bleeding heavily from the head and was pretty banged up
7:15 am
after that crash. we also understand that the driver has not been cooperating with the police so far. that according to the interior minister. the judge is not scheduled to meet the train driver until tomorrow sometime tomorrow and then decide on what formal charges to press whether he upholds this idea of reckless homicide. of course, not only will he be relying on the driver's statements to decide on nose charges, it will -- he will be sifting through evidence. again, according to the interior ministry today, the black boxes from the train have not yet been passed to investigators. they are still in police custody. that could be some of the reason for that the time it's taking to press or decide on formal charge against the train driver. >> i also wonder, karl, about speed. i know that there is a maximum -- speed limit really there on the tracks for those trains. do we have any indication how fast the train was going and if
7:16 am
that may have played any role? >> reporter: you are right. there has been a lot of focus on the speed issue up until now. and part of that was driven by early comments from one of the junior government ministers saying that he believed excessive speed was a factor. the rest of the government, though, now seems to have -- reeled back a little bit and said we have to keep an open mind and look at all the factors. look a bit at the facts we have before us in is the curve behind me. that's where the train derailed and -- that -- is a speed limit there of 80 kilometer news and that's 45 miles per hour. that according to the state railway company. when we look at that chilling individual grow the surveillance camera, untrained eye, layman's eye, does seem like that train was going a lot faster than that. nevertheless, today, talking to government ministers, they say we are looking at all factors and that will include technical factors to see if there was anything wrong with the train or the line. they say they will go right down
7:17 am
to looking at budgetary factors to make sure that there have been no budget cuts that affected safety measures and maintenance on this line. >> that's so hard to watch that video that plays over and over again of that train just crashing and so many people have died. many more about 80 in the hospital at this hour. karl, thank you for the reporting. we appreciate it. >> talking to people throughout the week and said it is such a gruesome, terrifying experience. when they saw the injure who'd survived, like the walking dead. unbelievable. san diego's mayor heads to rehab. we are going talk live to the san diego newspaper reporter about bob filner and the sexual harassment allegation against him.

7:22 am
who -- alleged sexual harassment by the mayor who was not mayor at the time. eight years ago, it is -- is this new or something that's followed him? these accusations, whispers for years? >> we have always heard rumors. they were just rumors. this past two weeks have been surreal because so many women have now come forward. again, we heard these things in the past. we tried digging into these things. it is -- just recently, it is a -- has all emerge. >> have you quite a number of people coming forward. it is almost like the dam that has broken here. why now? why the timing of this? >> i think a lot of it has to do with the mayor's allies. a lot -- it is his flaends are now coming forward and started about three weeks ago imploring the mayor to get help and step down. he is a democrat, he has a lot of labor support and -- support from traditional democratic sources. and -- it is -- those folks that came forward. not the gop or his enemies.
7:23 am
it is his friends, former allies, that came forward and said please step down. i think they are concerned about their political viability going forward. >> what kind of accusations are we talking about? how serious are these allegations? >> they range from the creepy from severe sexual harassment. here is the difference between spitzer or anthony weiner problem. this is sexual harassment in the workplace. these are some of the more severe allegations that we have heard. that really is a problem. how do you get work done in city hall if you as a woman can't sit alo alone, negotiate a deal with the mayor without fear of being touched and some of the things we heard about his -- famous now filner headlock is what they call it where he -- pins these women down and tries to -- allegations about him putting his tongue down women's throats. it is -- i don't know how
7:24 am
business can get done. i think you see city hall -- just in a virtual stand still. >> let's listen to the mayor and see -- he did apologize and -- at least has what he thinks is going to be a reasonable solution tow all of this. let's listen. >> what do you have to say to these women that have come forward and publicly accused you of inappropriate behavior? >> will is a possible necessary which this will be decided p.m. that's what we will be dealing with. there will be no other process except the legal process. >> he later apologized and said he would go into some sort of counseling program for two weeks. is there anybody there that thinks that's ad watt? >> sort of bizarre. sort -- we talked to experts today. many question whether two weeks is enough. particularly -- this is not a young kid. i mean -- this is a 70-year-old experienced politically -- mayor. let me give you another twist on this, too. this is a mayor had a says he wants due process. you about -- his deposition,
7:25 am
scheduled to take -- there will be sworn testimony. he has to make. that is supposed to be happening on august 9 right in the middle of when he's supposedly going to be in this clinic for two weeks. we question, i think, and there is a lot of questions. whether due process can go forward. you know, what's the real reason that the mayor is going to go to this clinic. >> and, you know, i wonder if he can survive this. he will do this clinic, counseling, for would weeks. the local democratic party as well. all calling for him to resign. incredible amount of pressure on him now. what do you think will be the point perhaps the breaking point if he changes his mind? >> if will is a breaking point it will be hard-core labor supporters he has had for years. that have always been in his camp. he's always been a labor supporter and stood by him. it is the most fervent labor supporters who are in his corner. those are the ones that have been silent and everyone else has called on this mayor to
7:26 am
resign to get help. once we hear from that hoard-core labor voice, i think that he's done. >> all right. thank you so much. investigative reporter at the san diego union tribune. appreciate your talking with us this morning. a note that tomorrow morning, 6:00, new day sunday, you will hear my interview with laura fink, the second woman to allege sexual harassment against filner. what she says about his refusal to resign. and this. it is mysterious. frustrating and frightening. als or better known as lou gehrig's disease that ravage it is body but not the mind and challenge it is notion of what it means to be alive. my mother has been diagnosed with it a year and a half ago. we will share our family's story next. ♪

[ applause ] july 27, 1953. 60 years ago today, the village, the generals picked up hair pens and signed their names to the
7:45 am
agreement spread before them. that night, as the armistice took hold the guns of war thundered no more. along the jagged front men emerged from their muddy trenches and raised his bugel and played "taps." a soldier spoke for millions when he said thank god it is over. in the days that followed, both sides pulled back leaving a demilitarized zone between them. soldiers emptied their sand bags and tore down their bunkers. p.o.w.s emerged from the camps. and our troops boarded ships and steamed back across the ocean. and describing the moment he passed under the golden gate bridge one of the soldiers wrote we suddenly knew we had survived the war and we were home.
7:46 am
it asked these veterans here today and many will tell you compared to other wars, theirs was a different kind of homecoming. unlike the second world war, korea did not galvanize our country. these veterans did not return to parades. unlike vietnam, korea did not tear at our country. these vet draerans did not retuo protest. among many americans p. tired of war, there was a scene -- a desire to forget. to move on. one of these veterans recalls, we just came home and took off our uniforms and went to work. that was about it.
7:47 am
you are veterans of korea deserve better. our nation worked to right that wrong, including here. with this eternal memorial where the measure of your sacrifice is enshrined for all time. because here in america, no war should ever be forgotten. month veteran should ever be overlooked. after the armistice a reporter wrote when men talk in some distant time, faint remember ransz of the korean war, the shining dids will live. on this 60th anniversary, perhaps the highest tribute we can offer our veterans of korea is to do what should have been done the day you come home.
7:48 am
our hurried lives, let us pause. let us listen. let these veterans carry us back to the days of their youth and let us be on by their shining deeds. listen closely and hear the stories of a generation. veterans of world war ii recalled to duty. husbands kissing their wives good-bye yet again. young men, some just boys, 18, 19, 20 years old, leaving behind everyone they loved to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met. let's never forget all the daughters who left home. especially our heroic nurses who saved so many. our women in korea also served
7:49 am
with honor. they also gave their lives. listen and hear how these americans faced down their fears and did their duty. clutching their rifles, hearing the bugles in the distance. knowing that waves of enemy fighters would soon be upon them and ships offshore climbing down the ropes into the landing craft knowing some of them would not leave that beach. on the tarmacs and flight decks take taking off, knowing that they might not return to this earth, listening and hearing of their gallantry outnumbered and outgunned in some of the most brutal combat and modern
7:50 am
history. how they held the line of the perimeter and how they landed and turned the tide of the war. how surrounded and freezing they battled their way out of the reservoir, and how they fought foxhole by foxhole, mountain after mountain, pork chop hill. listen and hear how perhaps the only thing worse than the enemy was the weather. searing heat, choking dust of summer. deep snow and bitter cold of winter. so cold that their weapons could jam. so cold that their food would turn to ice. surely no one endured more than our p.o.w.s in those hellish camps where the torment was
7:51 am
unimaginable. our p.o.w.s from korea are some of the strongest men our nation has ever produced. and today we honor them all. those that never came home and those who are here today. listen to these vet france and you will also hear of the resilience of the human spirit. there was compassion. starving police mers that shared their food. there was love. men that reached for grenades so their brothers might live there was the dark humor aboard is when someone misunderstood the code name for mortar rounds, tootsie rolls, and then shipped our troops thousands of tootsie
7:52 am
rolls, candies. there was hope. told in letter home written by a soldier in the 7th cavalry. marching through the snow and ice, something caught his eye. young lieutenant up ahead and from the muzzle of his rifle hung a pair of tiny baby booties swinging silently in the wind like tiny bells. they were sent by the lieutenant's wife. pregnant with their first child. she promised to send ribbons, blue if a boy and pink if a girl. but as the war ground on, those soldiers were scattered. until one day on a korean road he spotted the lieutenant again. in the first rays of the morning sun, the soldier wrote were
7:53 am
those booties and fluttering below them was the brightest bluest piece of ribbon i have ever seen. six decades on, these moments may seem like faint remembrances of a distance in time but for you, our korean veterans and your families, i know it must feel sometime just like yesterday. object days such as this, you are back there once more. >> there you have some of the remarks by president barack obama on this very for day. today marking 60 years since the agreement, the end of fighting, on the korean peninsula. the president saying the guns of war fire no more. men emerged from their muddy trenches and talked about the fact that the soldiers that fought in korea for this country didn't come back to parades. they didn't come back to
7:54 am
