>> reporter: everything seems to be pretty smooth now, a little traffic, but in terms of foot traffic and people getting on the metro, it's pretty quiet. just going back about 30 minutes ago tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people, all leaving the national mall pretty much all at once, what could possibly go wrong, right? for at least some people things got a little hairy leaving the concert tonight. it started around 10:00 as thousands of people left the concert early. the l'enfant plaza seventh and c street entrance was shut down for about 25 minutes. the escalators appeared to be overheating as smoke poured out of them. police redirected foot traffic to the seventh and d street entrance only to shut that down a few minutes according to d.c. firefighters. the fire engine showed up and took care of business and reopened the entire l'enfant plaza metro station about 25 minutes ago. it seemed to be just a minor

leaders agreed to launch a two- year study of a free trade area for that part of the world. tomorrow president obama holds more talks with the president of china and then it's off to australia for another economic summit. isis released a new propaganda video on the internet. one scene reportedly shows isis fighters using an over the shoulder rocket to bring down an iraqi jet fighter. at 1 point a narrator calls both president obama and president bush liars and vows isis will not be defeated. >> as a counter point to that video iraqi state division is reporting a victory over isis saying soldiers have recaptured most of the town that's the largest oil refinery. iraqi fighters say their troops are meeting fierce resistance. a governor of missouri candle stands red -- stands
