6:02 am
you have a window of opportunity to use the san mateo bridge or perhaps think about using the richmond bridge to the golden gate. right now that is clear. the richmond bridge looks good over to 101. southbound 101 into san francisco -- your window of opportunity will not be long because people are going to figure this out and will start getting busy on the other bridges. try to get out there early. the bay bridge is in bad shape because of a stalled bus. topping our news this hour. more victims of the manchester concert bombing are being identified and honor this morning. >> there are reports in the uk that isis has claimed responsibility for that deadly attack at a ariana grande concert. allie rasmus is in hours today with new information. the bombing has killed 22 people so far. dozens more have been heard. >> reporter: yes. and what is so heartbreaking and devastating about that number is that several children are believed to be among the 22 victims of this attack.

6:05 am
representatives from isis claimed responsibility for the attack, praising the bomber as in "soldier of the caliphate." brinners the authorities are trying to verify how much contact the perpetrators of this bombing had with isis. that is still a work in progress. it does raise a concern about isis and terrorists acting alone, going after so-called soft targets. concerts and shopping centers and places that do not typically have the same high level of security is government offices, buildings and tourist spots. >> it's sad because as you mentioned, so many families and kids out enjoying a concert. an expectation of safety with something like that. 6:05 am. president trump is just about to leave israel and head for italy this morning. the president wrapped up his middle east visit today, pledging u.s. support to the people of israel. >> i stand in awe of the accomplishments of the jewish people and i make this promise to you. my administration will always stand with israel.
