this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the overnight news. i'm jericka duncan. a worldwide manhunt is under way for accomplices in the deadly terror attack in manchester, england. the bomber died in the blast along with nearly two dozen innocent victims and now his brother is behind bars in libya. an anti-terror squad swept him up and claims he's already admitted he was part of the attack. mark phillips has the very latest. >> reporter: two days of raids and at least six arrests later, including the bomber's brother, and police have changed their minds that this attack was the work of one man. manchester police chief ian hopkins. >> i think it's very clear that this is a network that we are
investigating. and it continues at a pace. >> reporter: security sources have indicated they no longer think the suicide bombing suspect, salman abedi, seen here possibly buying a backpack in which to carry the bomb, made the device himself. he may have been just the mule, to use the security parlance, who carried it. details of the bomb collected at the scene by british investigators reveal a sophisticated device, with a detonator held in the bomber's left hand and a powerful battery to make sure the device went off when triggered. another indication abedi was acting as part of a terror group comes from the security chaos of libya where isis and other militants operate and from which abedi returned shortly before the bombing. abedi's brother hashim was detained in libya today by a
self-blow -- self-proclaimed counter terrorism militia that operates there. the group says his father ramadan was arrested as well. at a building in central manchester, police used an explosive device to break into an apartment, fearing it was booby trapped. >> we heard a really loud bang. the smell inside was a bit weird. >> reporter: this is a student who lives in the building. like something explosive weird? >> explosive weird. >> the terror threat level in britain has been raised to critical. authorities believe that whoever made the manchester bomb could certainly have made others, nearly 4,000 soldiers are in the streets. seth doane reports. >> reporter: it was a show of force on britain's streets today. soldiers joined police on patrol to protect potential targets, including buckingham palace and parliament, the site of a terrorist attack in march. up to 3800 troops can be mobilized. about 1,000 were deployed today.
londoner peter appleton says relying on the military makes sense. >> we have a limited number of armed policeman. they're doing other things. >> reporter: this is a scene that has not been seen on the streets here in the uk for more than 14 years. the military deployed along with police. the last time was in 2003 when tanks and troops were sent around london and to heathrow airport following a plot to bring down an airliner with a surface to air missile. today to free up police, parliament was closed to the public and the ceremonial changing of the guards was canceled at buckingham palace. the extra security reassured michelle calvert from manchester. >> that's the british way, isn't it? we just get on with things, really, carry on. >> reporter: police here say another terrorist attack is imminent. and that means the public will need to get used to seeing the military in these cities. >> among the dead were seven parents waiting to pick up their children. phil and kim dick were standing
by a souvenir table, scanning the crowd for their daughter and granddaughter when the bomb went off. they described the scene to scott pelley. >> oh, my god. >> all of a sudden an almighty flash and bang. it was deafening. we got thrown on the floor. and then there was rubble and dust everywhere. >> a thick, acrid smoke, and ash was falling, almost like snow. >> yeah. >> we thought we were just on the periphery of a much bigger explosion. that's what our first thoughts were. >> my babies, my babies are in there. and then out of the rubble this little girl is staggering towards me with all her long blond hair all burnt, blood coming out of her mouth. big gash on her shoulder.

they kept coming up and saying it's okay. we're going to get help. >> the police officers, we got one of the trestle tables that had been used for merchandise and we gently shuffled her across onto the trestle table and with the police officers, we carried her down on this makeshift stretcher. >> did her dad call you? >> he called me. eventually he got through and then reunited with his daughter. >> kim, you haven't had a chance to process this, have you? >> no, not, no. i can't get to sleep at night. but when i have, as soon as i wake up, it's just there, the carnage, because the whole hour that we were stuck there, all i could see was either dead bodies, body parts, blood and -- >> injured people. >> injured people and hearing them crying out.

researchers have known for some time that there's a link between drinking and breast cancer, but a new report says even one drink a day can increase the risk. here's dr. john lapook. >> a study found that one small glass of wine, beer or other alcohol daily was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. for premenopausal women. the risk increased 5%. for post menopausal women it increased 9%. this doctor is one of the authors. >> the risk of breast cancer does increase with more alcohol, so that two drinks a day can give you twice the risk of one drink a day or three drinks a day increases the risk by three times.
>> on the positive side, vigorous exercise such as running, fast cycling or spinning was associated with a 17% lower risk in premenopausal women and a 10% risk in post menopausal women. >> we wouldn't recommend somebody drink four drinks a night on the weekend and then the next morning if they go for a jog it will cure everything. it may not work that way. women who keep their weight at a normal range, who are physically active, limit their alcohol to one drink a day, that can significantly reduce risk for developing breast cancer. >> on the one hand, alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer. on the other hand, in moderation, it may decrease the risk of heart disease. so it's a balancing act that has to take into account which disease is the bigger threat for any one woman. for years now, cancer patients have been warned by doctors that they should seek aggressive treatment. but recently there's a new school of thought that says less is more.
barry petersen explains. >> reporter: this is a moment. >> yes. >> reporter: when you changed a person's life. >> absolutely. >> reporter: lisa was readying for a double mastectomy when she consulted the doctor and her two critical words. >> she said first of all, it's highly treatable. sometimes doing less is just as important as doing more. >> reporter: for years the conventional wisdom has been to treat any cancer aggressively. but dr.esserman a breast cancer surgeon and oncologist is part of a new medical movement, urging patients to hit the pause, not the panic button, when they get a breast cancer diagnosis. we're assaulted by this find it first, get it out. that's how you live. >> okay, but we really need to change that whole framework. so people say oh, i can find cancer when it's one cell. i said, please, don't. because we don't need to know that.
because the body may take care of it. there's a lot of things the body takes care of. >> reporter: virtually no one questions the value of screening to find cancers. but the debate about when or if to treat those cancers is getting louder. >> when we initially started to screen for breast cancer, we were looking for small, invasive cancers, with the idea that if only we could find them early, we would really, dramatically reduce the chance of dying of breast cancer. the problem is the people who have the very low risk conditions don't need the treatment and by overtreating them, you're not improving people's chance of survival. >> reporter: a group of medical researchers concluded that of every 2,000 women screened, one will avoid dying of breast cancer, but ten women will be treated unnecessarily. dartmouth professor welsh tracks cancer survival rates as
screening has improved. >> and ironically, the mother the more overdiagnosis it does, the more popular it becomes because there's more people who feel they are quote, survivors because of screening, although it happens to be a cancer that was never going to bother them. they'll never know that. >> reporter: he says for thyroid cancer, screening sent the number of new cases sky rocketing, but the death rate remains virtually unchanged. the same was true for melanoma. and for prostate cancer, screening peaked in the 1990s, but the death rate barely changed. >> we're moving much more towards the observation. >> reporter: dr. ian thompson is an oncologist and president of this hospital in san antonio. in the end, if i'm the patient sitting across from you, the thing that you would have a hard time persuading me is it's okay to live with cancer in your body? >> mm-hm. >> reporter: is it okay?
>> well, most of us have cancer in our body, so that's the first thing. >> reporter: in fact, some prostate cancers are so slow-growing that a man will likely die of other causes. and aggressive treatments carry their own dangers. a biopsy risks infection. and surgery? even worse. >> it can lead to sexual disfunction. so a man could become impotent afterwards. medications may not work for the potency, and that can affect marital relationships. and then radiation and surgery can affect urinary functions. >> reporter: it's the unintended consequence of a strange new frontier. more ways to find cancer. but increasing concern that some of those cancers are not dangerous. a message over which patients and doctors can connect. >> i think the new rule for the physicians is to be a coach. and to really try and help explain all the complicated data and to help people make a choice

john cornyn of texas. the budget blueprint makes good on the president's campaign promise to slash domestic but his vow to push through a historic spike in military spending doesn't add up. for instance, the navy will not be getting 100 new ships. for now they're making do with refurbishing the ones they have, such as the aircraft carrier "uss abraham lincoln." it just completed an overhaul. jan crawford got a tour. >> reporter: these ships are like the emergency response team for the world. i mean, where there's a major conflict or humanitarian crisis, the carriers are there. no other country has anything like america's fleet, which means no other country has the kind of shipbuilders who build and keep these ships running. the 90,000-ton "uss abraham lincoln" is one of the largest warships in the world with a proud history.
when the u.s. prepared to take on saddam hussein in 1991, the newly-built "uss lincoln" patrolled the persian gulf. during the 2003 invasion of iraq, the ship launched over 100 missions a day. it served as the site of one of president george w. bush's historic announcements. and when a tsunami hit, the "lincoln" rushed to provide relief. now nearly three decades after it first departed newport news, the "lincoln" is heading out for another 25 years at sea, better than ever after a four-year upgrade and overhaul. >> we're pretty close to the -- right over here are the catapults where the planes go off the bow of the ship. >> reporter: during the overhaul, that catapult underwent extensive renovation.
responsibilities that they take seriously. what does that mean? like to work here on this aircraft carrier? >> well, first of all, it's a privilege. >> reporter: a privilege. >> the privilege. the nation entrusts us with creating these complex platforms that are going to take, really, the most valuable resource we have, which is our young sailors, and take them into harm's way. >> reporter: often deployed for months at a time. more than 5,000 people can live aboard the "lincoln" when it's fully staffed. that is a city. >> it is a city with its own airport. all the things you need to accommodate 5,000 people in a city, between food, sleeping arrangements. entertainment, training. every single thing that has to happen to support the mission of the ship, and then you're going to go and drive this city around out there at sea in an environment that's actually pretty harsh. at some point, the quality of our work is going to get tested.

he has been a pipe fitter, and his son now works in the shipyard. spruell helped build the "lincoln" and plans to retire once the overhaul is complete. what does that mean to you to be able to see that through? >> there's just something about this stage when you're ready to go to sea that when you go down that river and all those hours were put in, just a pride in what you do. >> reporter: 33-year-old ramirez crumley is an electrical foreman. do you feel that pride too? >> yes, ma'am. i didn't get it at first. when i first got here, i thought it was a job. and then to actually complete a carrier and to actually see it go out to sea, i mean, it's just outstanding, and it just makes you feel special as a person that i was part of that project. >> reporter: she served on
carriers. >> it makes you work harder, especially after knowing what it's like to live on that ship. >> reporter: all four says working on equipment that helps keep the country safe carries with it a heightened sense of responsibility. and building ships with a 50-year life-span can quickly become personal. >> my son is 7 years old, and he tells me every day how he wants to be in the military, the navy or something like that. i was 17 when i got in the military. if he follows in my shoes, he's going to want to do the same thing. if he's on a ship, i want it to be right. >> reporter: because you could be working on something now that he will be on. >> absolutely. and that's something i take very seriously. >> reporter: now with the next generation of carriers already being built, huntington engles is expected to be busy for decades to come. and to make sure they have enough shipbuilders to do the work. the ceo donates his salary to pay for preschool scholarships

a grisly discovery at the top of the world. four climbers were found dead a few thousand feet from the summit of everest. it appears they were using a cooking stove to keep warm and died of carbon monoxide poisoning. in all, ten people have died on the mountain this climbing season which ends in a couple weeks. among the dead, an american, roland yearwood. vladimir duthiers has that story. >> reporter: we don't know who these climbers were or how they died. they were found by sherpas. who were trying to recover the body of another man over the weekend. with the news of these four additional deaths, mt. everest has well surpassed its average

people who didn't train, didn't do their due diligence. >> reporter: the latest deaths mean everest has claimed ten lives this climbing season when typically there are only six. but bishop says the nepalese government is partly to blame for the tragedies. there is a $11,000 permit fee to scale the mountain. >> the nepalese government doesn't care about the sherpas or the people dying. they want the permit fees, right? as many permits as people are willing to buy are given out. >> reporter: the four bodies remain at camp, some 26,000 feet up the mountain. teams will work to bring them to a lower camp where they can be airlifted by a helicopter and hopefully identified. that's the overnight news for this thursday, for others, check back with us for the morning news and cbs this morning. from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm jericka duncan.
