7:11 am
song. i left early because i needed to get back to my hotel. i was at victoria station which is right next to manchester arena. i was walking down the steps and then this huge bang went off. i didn't know what it was. but then all of a sudden everyone started to run away from the stage. people were crying. people were .sick parents looking for the kids. parents were looking to see if the kids were okay. >> what did you think was happening, zack, when you saw people running in that explosion? what did you think that was? >> well i thought it was part of the show. go out with a bang. but it was too loud for that to be that. i knew then that it would be something different, more serious. >> tell us about the crowd at the concert. >> it was mainly kids at the
7:12 am
event. >> let me ask you about security there. was there any security when you went into the concert? >> well, the funny thing -- the way thing was. i went to show them my ticket. but when i was going there, i showed them my ticket and they let me in. other people were there. no one was searching bags or nothing. >> so at the beginning you didn't realize how serious this was. >> no. because i just took -- i was walking to my hotel because i didn't think it was anything serious. so it's serious. >> very serious. zack, we thank you for joining us this morning. >> no problem. thank you. homeland security department says there's no specific threat against music venues after the manchester attack. palestinians new york city and around the country are on heightened

closely following the situation in manchester. nypd have officer liaisons in the uk. they will visit the scene of the attack in great britain and report back to the nypd's counterterrorism unit. >> thanks, don. mike morell was acting deputy director of the cia with us now from washington. michael, let me begin with this. from what you know, what stands out most in this tragic attack? >> charlie, i think it's really important to put this in context. it's roughly the size of the brussels attack. it's the largest attack in europe in ten months since nice and it's the largest attack in the uk in 12 years. so it's the size of the attack, it's the significance of the attack that, i think, is important here. >> what about the location? >> so, norah,
7:15 am
was very sophisticated in both the location and the timing. the location was a place, as you know, where there's age lar group of people exiting and the timing in terms of the end of the concert, more people flowing out massed together at the end of the concert than at the beginning. whoever did this was very conscious how to maximize casualties. >> so prime minister may told us this morning that they know the identity. they believe they know the identity of the suspected bomber and there's been an arrest of a 23-year-old man. what are the next steps here? no one has claimed responsibility yet. >> gayle, we still don't know whether he acted alone or he had accomplices. one of the thing you'll see in the aftermath of an attack the arrest of any friends who might have known him or might have been in contact with him just to find out what they know. there's also probably the arrest of other people they have been watching and are worried about who they fear may b
7:16 am
by this attack. >> is it likely someone could carry out this attack alone? >> charlie, yes. unfortunately, on the internet you can find instructions, detailed instructions on how to build a bomb like this. so, unfortunately, yes, it is possible for somebody to do this on their own. >> theresa may described the unimaginable worry of parents and relatives. what about security here in the united states? >> so, our venues like this whether they be concerts or sporting events, they will have considerable security. you have to go through metal detectors. we still don't know what the requirements were in manchester. i heard different stories. but our security is pretty good. but i think the important point, norah, is that there is always -- there is always a scene, there is always a place where security ends and that's
7:17 am
that's always possible here as well. >> all right michael morell, thank you so much. president trump's condemnation of the manchester bombing came during his trip to the middle east. he traveled early this morning to bethlehem to meet with palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. the president also visited a holocaust memorial in jerusalem along with first lady melania trump. he's about to deliver more remarks at the israel museum. these are live pictures. margaret brennan is traveling with the president in jerusalem. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well the president was briefed on the manchester attack by his national security adviser this morning and then spoke by phone with uk prime minister theresa may to offer any support. and throughout all of the stops here in the middle east, president trump has made expansion of counterterrorism efforts a key theme. >> so interesting that our meeting took place on this very horrible morning of death.

7:33 am
it was a video encouraging attacks. then right after the attack they, as you know, they're hash tags pray for manchester, manchester bombing, isis took over those hash tags to dissimi nature their propaganda and so look social media sites have to do more before these attacks to take down that propaganda, not just after. >> but when you look at this, this just seems to be a different kind of cruel. when you look at the audience that was targeted. is there anything that can to be done realistically. people every where can relate. i could have gone to that concert. i would have taken my kids. anything you can do realistically to stop this? >> look, we do security screening beforehand and there have been conflicting reports about how good that screening was going in. but, of course, most of that security is gone when people exit. the disturbing thing about this there were many exits. he dlubly chose that exit which was the one closest to public transportation in order to get the
7:34 am
so you expect now you'll see some effort to do screening as people exit. you can have explosive sniffing dogs and the like. wherever we put screening they are going to look for vulnerability. >> if this was isis or al qaeda are they trying to send a message that we're still here and we can still get at you >> absolutely. we don't know was this a home grown person from the uk or was this a refugee or some sort of foreign fighter coming back. that's right. no matter how die simi natured they are in the caliphate they are still in places around the world that pose a threat to us and our children. >> up see comparisons to bataclan? >> i do. there was a sports stadium where an individual tried to get in. we always see these warnings about large public gatherings and this is why. what they are looking for is the largest number of casualties. >> what do we know about the bombing?
7:35 am
the type of explosive, they did that's key to understanding whether or not this was a terrorist. >> fran townsend, always good have you here. in full disclosure, fran is under active consideration to be the new fbi director. we wanted to note that as well. to another big story this morning, president trump tried to enlist top intelligence officials to refute the fbi investigation into possible russian collusion. cbs news has learned that the president privately contacted the director of national intelligence, dan coats and the director of the national security agency admiral mike rogers. now this was first reported by "the washington post". both men reportedly refused to comply with the request, which they deemed to be inappropriate. nancy cordes is on capitol hill where intelligence officials are set to testify today. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is sure to come up repeatedly on capitol hil

before they came in the lawyers can study. what happened yesterday was the general questions went out to the group and what they found was a large amount of people saying going from allegheny county to suburban philadelphia would be a hardship, 67 of the 100. what we also find is that you have a huge number who have heard of the case. i mean 80 or more have heard about the case. 14 of them said they could not possibly change their opinion. ultimately, 21 of them get interviewed and what we have is the defense is at a disadvantage here. you have seven strikes which you can do for any reason or no reason. and decide that those people you're not going to use of your 12 jurors. the defense has already used four. they got only three to
