protests across the country and put an international spotlight on the deplorable conditions factory workers there are forced to work under. even pope francis has weighed in, likening their working conditions to slave labor. that's it for me. ba brooke baldwin takes it live from here in boston. brooke, where are you? i'm going to throw to you. fun working with you in boston. take it away. i appreciate that, my friend. good to see all of you. i'm brooke baldwin live in boston. want to begin with afternoon with brand-new developments this hour in this boston bombing investigation. dzhokhar tsarnaev is talking, and what he's telling the feds is quite frankly disturbing. a law enforcement source tells cnn that the suspects had another terror plot in mind here in town, a suicide attack at the huge boston pops 4th of july show. but as they built these pressure
cooker bombs in tamerlan tsarnaev's apartment in cambridge, they realized they'd be ready much sooner than they actually anticipated. so what did they do? you know what they did. they decided on an earlier detonation. you see this black van? this is a hearse carrying the body of tamerlan tsarnaev. it was met by a couple protesters at this funeral home just outside of boston. an uncle has now claimed the body of this suspected terrorist. also today, a family spokeswoman says he will be buried right here in massachusetts near the same city he is accused of bombing. it's a city that is trying to move on. tonight a capacity crowd will watch the celtics in an nba playoff game. also we've learned today new kids on the block, they have announced they will be joining this huge concert in just a couple weeks in boston. you have new kids, aerosmith, jimmy buffett, boston here for boston strong. it's a charity concert for the
victims. really this city, as they're moving on here and moving forward. that will be late thermo. we'll talk about that more many a minute. but for more on this latest development here and this investigation, deborah feyerick joins me now here. and so, first, i was just talking to someone the other day saying, you know what, i love this city, i want to be here for the 4th of july. and to hear that was what their intent was initially -- right? >> that's something a law enforcement official told cnn that basically in conversation with investigators dzhokhar tsarnaev said that they were thinking about july 4th. so he says that, but now investigators have to basically go and prove that and see whether, in fact, that's something he simply said or whether, in fact, that was nary original intent. aspirational versus operational and vice versa. that's what they were looking at. but again, sources i've spoke on the say the way they were able to execute the attack on the marathon, it was clear that they had a lot of foresight, that they had planned it, they had walked the route, that it was
just too precise how they were able to pull it off, do it successfully, and then simply slip away. >> despite the fact officials are saying they decided a couple days before, hey, we'll just target the finish line. >> certain things don't make sense and it's something you and i talked about. when something doesn't make sense, investigators have to figure out what does make sense. again, where they were standing, the fact they walked one behind the other, basic trade craft, and then the -- the world trade center folks who were from boston, they did the same thing, walking straight behind one another. there's a certain trade craft being looked at. so you look at where dzhokhar was standing and where his brother continued walking, where the brother plalsed himself, right in front of the cameras, right at the finish line, just in view so that you could see the explosion but not see him. it's just everything is just -- they either got really lucky, brooke, or knew exactly what they were doing and planned it
without a hitch. >> what about now, tamerlan tsarnaev? just being in town for a couple weeks, that's been the talk among bostonians, cabbies. they're using words i can't repeat on television when it comes to what to do with tho body and no one here wants this tamerlan tsarnaev buried anywhere near the city of boston let alone in massachusetts. yet we now know the family has claimed it and what are their plans? >> the plans are we know that the medical examiner's office released body yesterday at about 5:20. it left in what we believe was a black hearse, was taken to one funeral home. then there were some protests with that funeral home so they moved it to another funeral home in worcester, massachusetts. we understand the family wants another autopsy. they simply don't believe that tamerlan died the way he's alleged to have died. >> an independent autopsy. >> exactly. there's a lot of conspiracy theory, especially overseas, as to how this happened, how they could pull it off and whether, in fact, he died as a result of the shoot-out. that's a conspiracy theory but
they just want it done. so he'll be buried here. >> we'll be talking to brian todd who will be coming up next hour to talk about how people in worcester are absolutely enraged over this whole thing. understandably so. deborah feyerick, amazing reporting here. thank you so much. no amount of money here can certainly bring back a loved one or repair a life absolutely shattered by terrorism. a man who grew up just outside of boston, kenneth feinberg, has this grand task of putting a price tag on this boston tragedy right here on boylston street. so he is set to reveal his proposal this upcoming monday. some boston bombing victims could get more than $1 million each. feinberg talked to "the boston globe," talked to the families of the three people killed, and victims who lost more than one limb. and he's saying they may, quote, unquote, well get over a million dollars each. victims who lost a single limb like heather abbott here may get
under a million. victims with other physical injuries may get smaller amounts. it all depends on how long they were actually sitting here in boston in the hospital. feinberg is well versed in trauma and loss. he oversaw funds for victims of the 9/11 attacks, the virginia shootings, what we saw this past summer in aurora, colorado, and the bp oil spill. so he knows his stuff. right now the boston one fund has more than $28 million. that is, again so, far. feinberg wants to disburse the money this upcoming june 30th. to the markets we go on this friday afternoon. the stock market closing in less than two hours. and we could see, we could see a major milestone. the dow closing above the 15000 mark for the very first time.
this is a huge, huge jump since february 1st when the dow crossed that 14000 mark at the closing bell. look at it now, just shy, just shy of 15000. the unemployment report, let's talk about that, because the april jobs numbers, that was released this morning, so the number of jobs up 165,000 in april, that's also news. that's more than what was expected. retailers and bars and restaurants, they are all hearing the unemployment rate fell to 7.5%. to california. huge, huge fire northwest of los angeles. it has burned now 10,000 acres since yesterday. look at this. that is just when it started just yesterday. it is burning across the mountains, above the coastal highway, just 10% contained. hyung la is our reporter there. we have seen it come close to homes in the area.
do we have any idea at this point in time how many homes are threatened? >> well, we just actually spoke to the ventura county fire department and they say there are some homes, a pocket of homes south of where i'm at that they're very concerned about. these are homes that are in some canyons. so we're trying to figure out exactly what the firefight there is looking like. i'm at the north end of this fire. for reference, this is highway 1, the on-ramp to highway 1 right behind me. and just beyond that, it is white. that is all smoke that you're seeing here. the winds shismted shortly after we got here flp's actually active fire back here. you can't see it, though, because of the intense smoke. as we pivot over this way, the winds are basically pushing all the smoke this way. what firefighters are dealing with here are these intense shifting winds which makes this fire very unpredictable. what's over this way, again, straight through that white smoke, that area over there is the point mugu naval station.
firefighters were concerned about that. but there's a wetland, a marsh, that they hope that this north end of the fire they'll be able to push it right into the pacific ocean. so what firefighters say is all over this fire is this -- this is how dry everything is here in california. >> wow. >> reporter: it is basically fuel for this fire. so firefighters have a very tough job ahead of them especially with these winds. they say until about 2:00 local time, 5:00 eastern they have an upward battle. they're hoping to try to contain this fire a little built more. right now still only at 10% containment, brooke. >> the dryness and the wind not at all a good combination. kyung, do me a favor if you can. just step out of the shot because i want to take the shot full of the smoke you've been showing us. as you all do so, i want to bring in my next guest and continue these conversation about these wildfires. katherine salient is joining me on the phone of the "l.a. times." and so, katherine, i know you have a unique perspective in the
fact that your home was threatened in this fire in ventura county. as i understand, you were away from the home when you got the news. is that correct? >> yes. hi, brooke. thanks for having me. you're absolutely correct. i work in downtown los angeles, so i was in downtown los angeles when i got news that there was an evacuation in place for this fire, which was about two hours into it, and that my home was in the evacuation zone. so i had to go hop in my car and start racing home. that's about 60 miles north of los angeles. it took me about an hour. and i'll tell you, it felt like an eternity. during that time, my daughter got to our home before me and she's 20, and she went around and found our three cats, put them into containers, and then sat and watched the tv news as the flames grew closer and smoke just surrounded our
neighborhood. and she just kept calling me saying when are you going to be here? when are you going to be here? and by the time i got there my neighbors were all packing up their cars and moving. we did the same thing. and after i got our photographs and important papers into the car, i asked taylor if she was okay and was it okay if i went and did a little reporting and she kind of reluctantly agreed, brooke, and that's what i did. >> so you're juggling between do i wear the reporter hat, which i know as a journalist in your gut, you know, you want to wear, but at the same time, this is your home, this is your family. tell me, how long have you been at the "l.a. times"? there are all kinds of wildfires i know we've covered out there. has this ever happened to you before so close to home? >> i covered fires in southern california for about 24 years now. i've covered dozens of wildfires in the past.
and haven't really thought about how i go up to people in moments of trauma and ask them how they feel and what their plans are. but i can tell you it feels a lot different when it's happening to you because a little bit of shock sets in, and i felt kind of dazed. even at the same time that my -- the reporter in me was saying go to the blackened hills and talk to people. i kept losing my pen and my glasses. and it was just an experience. i think i learned something about it. >> talk about empathy instead of sympathy as a journalist, katherine, we wish you and your daughter well. hope i you all stay safe, that your home is okay. kyung lah, appreciate it, both of you. thank you. >> i want him to look the mother in the eye who's lost her child. i want him to see the pain. >> a mother confronts her

burden of my mother being gunned down in an elementary school is isn't as important. >> as you and i both know, the issue wasn't a background check system at sandy hook. >> the amendment is not agreed to. >> reporter: in order to find the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster, supporters need to change some half a dozen senate minds, going after republicans and democrats. >> mr. caucus, no. >> montana's max baucus was one of four senate democrats to vote no on expanding background checks. a liberal group is trying to pressure him with this new had, featuring a gun-owning grandmother. >> aimed my handle gunn at the door and waited. guns can protect us, but we're lelsz safe with guns in the wrong hands. >> reporter: the nra isn't taking anything for granted, pushing just as hard to keep those senators in their corner, running radio ads praising senate no voters like ayotte. >> and it's why kelly had the courage to pose misguided gun control laws. >> reporter: gun control groups insist senators who voted
against expanding background checks widely popular are taking a hit with constituents. a new survey conducted by a pro-democratic polling firm showed ayotte's approval rating dropping and found flake now the most unpopular senator in the country, prompting him to stay on his facebook page, "that probably puts me somewhere just below pond scum." outside flake's office, karen holds up a letter flake wrote before voting no telling her, "strengthening background checks is something we agree on." >> after receiving this letter, i would expect senator flake to look me in the eye and explain why he ignored me. >> reporter: now, brooke, a spokeswoman for senator flake told me the reason he voted no was that the amendment was written too broadly and would have, quote, encroached on private sales. but flake does hope that there will be changes made so he can support the measure. i actually talked earlier this afternoon to a senate source who said that joe manchin is the democrat who is behind all this
is going to sit down with some of those key senators like flake and others to try to find some change that will give them political cover. he thinks they want to vote for something but need to at least say, look, i forced a change and it will happen. if you look at what's happening right now in houston, the nra convention, wayne lapierre is speaking, and you can bet he is going to fight very hard to keep those senators in his corner. >> we will see if they can do it here in round two in washington. dana bash, thank you very much. you know, one of the largest school districts in america is under fire and accused of fraud. coming up next, how some employees allegedly scammed the system. i'm with clemmie, who is looking to save to help make ends meet.

i'm brooke baldwin. we have been talking to law enforcement about this investigation into the fatal boston bombings on boylston street. i want to bring in deborah feyerick now on the phone with me. she's in boston getting new information from law enforcement as far as something very specific that they have found inside this cambridge apartment, deb, that these two brothers shared. what did they find? >> well, one of the things they found and one of the reasons they believe that either it will pressure cooker bombs or pipe bombs they had were built inside the cambridge home is they found bomb residue, residue of explosives in the kitchen sink, at the kitchen table and also in the bathtub. they believe the bombs were built in the apartment because of the residue that they did find. they have found no bombs elsewhere but they believe some of the devices were, in fact, made in the home that tamerlan tsarnaev shared not only with his brother but with his wife
and small child. also, we should tell you there are some searches going on at the university of massachusetts, dartmouth, and those searches specifically investigators following leads that they've received, tips they've received, that there were loud explosions over the last couple months, so they're looking to see whether, in fact, the explosions, a, happened, and whether think could be related to this, for example, a testing of perhaps one of the bombs or one of the pipe bombs. that's under way right now, brooke. >> so let me just take you back so i'm hearing you crystal clear. investigators are now saying they found this residue on the kitchen sink, in the bathroom, and in the bathtub. as you mentioned, this is where tamerlan lived with his wife. again, as aaron mcpike has been reporting outside of her home in rhode island, katie russell so far saying she had no idea these bombs were being built in their apartment. correct?
>> katie rusds el e yie russell lot of questions right now. so many petings takes place between her lawyer and also fbi agents there. there's a lot of information that katie russell may have. if that explosive residue, which is found in the apartment, the suggestion that the devices were built in the home, she will have to answer whether she asaw any f those devices being built or anything that looked out of the ordinary. for example, a stack of fireworks or thing like that. one thing we want to remind our viewers, and that is the ingredients used are basic ingredients. they're crude ingredients. the pressure cooker, pouder from fireworks, but if she saw any of that and if she saw them working on something, there could be trouble. >> and again, she was the
breadwinner for this family, out of the home working, not as much as her husband was. deborah feyerick, thank you. in the wake of the boston bombings, security will be extra tight at tomorrow's kentucky derby. this is the first iconic sporting event since what happened here on boylston street now just about three weeks ago. it is a place to be seen. 160,000 people are expected to attend the first of the triple crown race, and that is where we sent pamela brown to churchill downs. and so pamela, in our latest poll, a huge majority of americans said terrorism will not stop them from, you know, attending a massive public events like the derby. you're there. you're talking to people. obviously they're there for a reason. >> reporter: yeah. in fact there are 150,000 people here today. today is the kentucky oaks, the race for filly, the big race leading up to the derby tomorrow.
even though there is a large krould here today, it is clear that security is top of mind in the wake of the boston bombings. since 9/11, security was enhanced here for derby weekend, and now we're seeing officials crack down even more. cooler, cans, purses larger than 12 inches, increased wanding at the entrances, and local, state, and federal authorities are out in full force with 100 here more today than normal. there's additional bomb-sniffing dogs that were brought in here for this weekend. some people we spoke with say that, you know, they did have second thoughts about coming here this weekend in the wake of the recent bombings. let's take a listen. >> i was happy to hear that they had increased security. it means, you know, less makeup and goodies we can bring in but, you know, it's worth it to just be more comfortable and to know that we're going to all look after eesm other. >> reporter: is what happened in boston on your mind today at all? >> yes. it definitely is on my mind just for the fact that it's such a large crowd and you just never
know how people's intentions are. so it's definitely, but i'm not going to let that spoil my time and we're going to enjoy ourselves. >> reporter: and, brooke, we went to several of the entrances. even with the stepped-up measure, the lines really weren't too bad and it seemed like people were taking this all in stride. >> pamela brown, thank you so much, at the derby. their music a huge success. recent ticket sales, though, pretty lackluster. my next guest puts it bluntly, saying the rolling stones concert sales are, quote, unquote, a disaster. tour starts tonight. up next, we'll find out why fanfant fans aren't buying. to pursue all her goals. when you want a financial advisor who sees the whole picture, turn to us. wells fargo advisors. who sees the whole picture, turn to us.

sales yesterday. bob, thanks for joining me. and, you know, i read -- obviously i read your whole piece today so, we did a little journalistic digging, as well so, we too went to the ticketing site today. i want you to look and our viewers to see this. we were able, as you were saying, able to pull up a pair of really awesome seats on the floor for tonight's show at $600 a pop. and let me say we could find seattles at just about every other section of the staples center arena. but you went further than that. tell us what you found. >> well, basically, this is about the scalpers. there's very little money recording music anymore. everybody makes their money from ticket sales. ultimately they found that the seats up close are incredibly desirable. as a result, scalpers have had a field day. what artists have tried to do is recapture this income. now, a great percentage are skaping their own tickets on ticketmaster's own site, tickets now, that's what a lot of acts
do. a lot sell directly to scalpers. the stones want to make all this money so they priced the tickets at what they thought the value was. turns out they were incorrect. the public does not want to pay $600 to see the stones. >> an editor is quoted as saying he is confident that the show will sell out by the time it actually starts. bob, just, is it too much to swallow, though, for fans who pay to see them as you did in '69, in '72, in the '90s? i mean, i actually have friends who have tick ets to see them when they roll through boston. they obviously paid that. i don't know if they're going to any other concerts this year because that's a lot of money. but do you think people will pony up? >> i think people definitely won't popeny up. the stadium will be full if they have to go to sound central and get a bus and rent all the people to come see the gig. acts have done this for year. bruce springsteen played denver. had to pay for the stadium.
kenny chesney went on a stadium tour two years ago, it was so bad he had to take a year off. these are not reported but these acts do not do what the public thinks they do. turns out there was not that much demand for the stones. they've been on an endless last-time tour for the last 20 years. i truly believe this will be the last time. but because they were not together on a business level, their adviser, prince rupert lowenstein retired, they have a very untogether business operation. so they toured in london and newark, new jersey, and that was when the frenzy was. now the frenzy is off and people don't care. so i think -- >> bob, hang on. why not officially say this is our last tour? i mean, i can see the billboards now, and that's when people say, all right, 600 bucks, the last time in my lifetime i can see mick? done. >> if you look at led szeppelin which did two shows in london
about five years ago, if led zeppelin went on the road, they could charge a thousand dollars a ticket because they haven't toured for 30 years. the rolling stones go out every five years and say, well, it may be the last time. you know? it's like the rolling stones were terrible at the super bowl. and a friend of mine said, hey, that's where they normally play. they've been playing stadiums. everybody who cared -- people in walkers have come to see the stones. there's not a single american who says i didn't get anymy chance. do they need another chance at these prices? absolutely not. >> bob lefsetz, i appreciate your honesty. thanks for coming on so much. >> no one else will speak the truth. i love the stones. >> i appreciate it. >> they haven't been good live in concert for years. >> that's your whole thing, you love the records, not them live. >> you bet. >> bob, thank you so much. i appreciate it. now this. this is a first. a woman makes the fbi's most
wanted terrorist list. coming up next, we will tell you her crimes and her connection to of all people the late rapper tupac sha cure. we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪
google glasses. we have a first look with my tech analyst, katie, in new york. i nigh you would look adorable with the glasses on. there's a little geeky, but i love the geek, my friend. how did you get your hands on these? >> i'm reading your mind as we speak, brooke. it's amazing. igts amazing to have the opportunity to be one of the first and fortunate to test these out. i had an hour and a half training session with google the other day in an undisclosed location in new york. i have to tell you, too, i'll be eating cereal for the next month because i shelled out about $1,500 for them, $1,700 in total. super pricey but the latest google tech because. >> give me the buzz. other than reading my mind. what can you do with these things? >> yeah. it's amazing to be out in new york, too, because everyone wants to stop you and try them on. given that i had to spend
$1,500, i'm so scared they'll get beat up in the subway, i'm really worried to hand them off to people to test them out. there's a waiting list after this segment. >> be careful. >> i know. the video quality is amazing. they take five megapixel photos. you can make phone calls. you can get e-mails, send text messages. they work on both android and ios so iphone users and android users are pleased but there is a little more capability for android users. the exciting part about it, it's such in a beta stage that a lot of developers are out there creating apps for it. so right now there's not a ton of functionality beyond those basics i just mentioned but in the upcoming months it's going to be exciting what developers roll out. >> how do you text with glasses? is it, like, you know, you speak out loud and it's supposed to type and i imagine we all love auto correct, i kid, so there have to be glitches. >> yeah.
so google was adamant in saying ice all about short bursts of information. you're not going to go on here and read "gone with the wind." it's about taking a quick picture or video, little snap shots of information. the first misconception as you can see here, there's no lenses. everything is going through this little glass cue. i can activate the glasses using voice commands. tilting my head up using a voice command or on the side here with an ipod, you know how you have swiping capabilities. you can swipe up, across, swipe two finger, and they all do different things. i'm going through different foe teas and e-mails just with a touch on the glasses. a number of different ways to activate them. i'm still getting used to them. i'm sending a number of photos and e-mails that i did not intend to send. it's been a learning curve but again very early stage with the technology. >> so what i'm hearing now is we're going to not only have people walking across the street
doing this, we're going to have people with glasses doing this, i suppose. it's going to look fabulous, i'm sure. katie, you are a good-looking guinea pig. my thanks to you for checking out the glasses and sharing that with us. coming up, the first woman on the fbi's most wanted list has a connection to tupac. you'll hear why the feds want her so badly. c
for the first time a female has made it on fbi's most wanted terror list. her name is joanne chesimard, and the "philadelphia inquirer" reports she is the step aunt of the late wrapper tupac shakur. one of the 20-plus aliases listed for chesimard is asatta s shakur. fbi announced a $2 million reward for her capture and on top of everything, investigators know where she is, cuba, where she was granted political asylum in 1984. official says this woman at times has acted as a dignitary for the island nation. >> safe haven in cuba, she's been given the pulpit to preach and profess, stirring supporters to mobilize against the united states by any means necessary. as a government function nary and instrument of anti-u.s. propaganda, she has been used by the castro regime to greet
foreign delegations visiting cuba. >> which he is mards was convicted for the murder of this new jersey state trooper, werner foerster, gunned down 40 years ago yesterday. at the same time here, the fbi says that chesimard was a member of the black liberation army. let's go to philadelphia to david who's cover had vana for several years for this and cnn's legal analyst sunny hostin. sunny, first you, chesimard escaped prison in 1979. she's been in cuba since '84. what happened for her to make this most wanted list after all these years? >> yeah, and let's make it clear, this is the fbi's most wanted terror list. she's the fist woman to be on that list. certainly there have been women on the other fbi list, the fbi's most wanted list. and what we've learned, brooke, is certainly that there are criteria for making this list and a process that one goes
through in terms of making the list. we know two of the criteria. one is that the person is a terrorist. the fbi does consider this woman to be a domestic terrorist. certainly someone that poses a threat to the united states government. the second criteria which is very interesting is that it has to be determined that the national publicity by being on this list makes it more likely that the fugitive will be captured. and so the fbi has determined that those two criteria has been met and that's why she is on the list. certainly, it may also have to do with the timing because as you said it was 40 years just yesterday that the state trooper was killed. >> david, in terms of cuba, it was, what, a couple weeks ago when we saw cuba return, that florida couple who had basically kidnapped their kids and left louisiana for havana. why haven't authorities been able to remove this woman from cuba? >> well, brooke, i think we're
looking at really two separate categories. when you look at the hankin family, that was a straight child abduction case and took place under the raul administration. this woman, asa that, has been in cuba since 1984, at least. that was during the fidel rather and she went there really as a period of sort of rebelled against the government. also cuba has a grudge against the united states when it comes to harboring what it says are terrorists. you look at jorge posada ka rils aquitted a few years ago and he is wanted in cuba and venezuela for terrorist attacks, particularly the 1976 bombing in cuba. so there is this tit for tat going on within both countries. but many say that the real issue here is just the normalization of relations before some of these more specific issues will ever get solved.

friday. disturbing new developments this hour in this bombing investigation here in boston. the apartment that tamerlan tsarnaev shared with his wife and young child in cambridge just across the river from us here was also the scene of a deadly bomb making operation. a law enforcement source telling cnn that explosive residue has been found. and here are the specifics. they say it was found on the kitchen table, on the kitchen sink, and in the bathtub of tamerlan tsarnaev's apartment. the same source tells cnn that investigators are now looking into tips about loud explosions heard in the area around umass, dartmouth, over the course of the last several months. so feds are right now searching that area today to see if they were from tests conducted by those suspects perhaps as trial runs. cnn's brian todd is with me now because you're on this whole other development today that people are just in an uproar over here in boston. the idea that now we know that
the family has claimed after weeks tamerlan tsarnaev's body from the medical examiner's office, and they want to bury him not too far from where we're standing. >> that's right, brooke. according to a family spokesperson, they want to bury him somewhere in the boston area generally. that's generating a huge controversy here. the body as you mentioned picked up yesterday afternoon by the uncle and by sisters. it's now in a funeral home in worcester, massachusetts, about an hour west of here. but the funeral director has told a local newspaper he's having a hard time finding a cemetery that will take this body for burial. as well, we've talk odd people here and in cambridge, citizens who have gathered at the memorial and in cambridge where he lived about the idea of him being buried in the boston area. they have some pretty strong emotions. take a listen. >> i don't really care where he's buried. to me he's dead already. how much more can you pupish him? i just -- to me it's too petty. >> it's too sad for words. it's too sad. he shouldn't be here.
he should never have come. if he had never come it would have been -- none of this would have happened. he had every advantage he could have here. he shouldn't be buried here. >> reporter: emotions running very high here in boston, brooke. >> understandably so. >> really understandably. >> so you have -- now we know the body's been claimed. you have the funeral home, who is willing to handle the body. the issue then with finding the cemetery as you point out. but also in terms of officiating a potential ceremony. you've been talking to a bunch of different imams, most of whom say i don't want to do it. >> it's amazing to hear them. and these are people who are willing to -- they're very -- you know, they're just very open-minded people. they're accepting of almost everyone. with this case, they want to push away from it. the mosque where the two brothered attended, the islamic society of boston, top officials telling us, no way. we don't want anything to do with this. an imam in brighton said we're
okay with him given basic islamic rights in a funeral, no top imam will do this. a layperson, maybe a family member who can say a basic prayer, clean the body, put it in a shroud, in the ground, be done with it. >> again, people think -- i've talked to people in boston. they say what about cremation? but that goes against the muslim faith. >> that's not done in islam and presents another conundrum. >> brian todd, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> people are very angry about that. as i said, understandably so. now, no amount of money, of course, could bring back a loved one and repair a life shattered by terrorism here on boylston street now three weeks ago. a man, though, who grew up just outside of the city i'm standing in, kenneth feinberg, has the grim task of putting a price tag on this tragedy here in boston. and he is set to reveal his proposal on monday. so here's what we're hearing. some of the victims here from the bombings could get more than $1 million each. feinberg told "the boston globe"
families of the three people killed and victim who is lost more than one limb, they may get, quote, well over a million dollars each. as for victims who lost a single limb like this woman here, this is heather abbott, she may get just under a million. victims with other physical injuries. there were so many. they may get smaller amounts. all depends on exactly how long they were here in the hospital recovering. feinberg is well versed in trauma and loss, we should point out. he oversaw funds for victims of the 9/11 attacks, also from several years ago the virginia tech shootings, that neater massacre in aurora, colorado, and also the bp oil spill. right now i can tell you this, the boston one fund, thanks to the generosity of so many people now, has raised more than $28 million and counting. >> as we check the clock, less
than an hour until the closing bell. record-setting day on wall street, folks. the dow jones industrial average topping 15,000. that is a new high. it is just below at the moment. getting a live look here, up 136 points, just below, again, that 15,000 mark. what's happening today, you ask? well, big boost comes after the monthly jobs report. it came out this morning for the month of april showing that the economy added 165,000 jobs. the unemployment rate fell to 7.5%. that is the lowest we have seen since december of 2008. so with all this positive news, let's go to allison kison kosik new york stock exchange for us today. it has passed the 15,000 mark at least once? >> reporter: at least once, at least twice today. right now at 14,968. you know what, brooke, even if it doesn't close at 15,000, that nice round number, it will still be making history, talking about
the dow, not just the dow but the s&p 500 as well, at its level, 1613, it's making history as well pap big day. i'm wheer teld di weisberg to shed some light on this. you're concerned. when you see the numbers go up and up, it makes you nervous. >> absolutely. one way -- too much of anything is probably not good for us. you tend to get a little too xla sent and yeuphoric. up is always better than down, has a good quotient of the feel-good factor, but day after day of one direction, whether it's up or down, kind of indicates to me that maybe there's a reversal in there somewhere. >> pendulum is swinging, though, isn't it, from years past. >> well, sure, the pendulum has swung dramatically. wasn't so long ago at the end of 2007 till early spring of 2009 that the market went one way then two. but the direction was down, not up. and this doesn't mean that, you
know, we're in for some kind of major pullback. but it does mean people tend to get a little complacent when you get these elongated moves in one direction or another. in this case, obviously the move has been up. >> so how's business with the dow at 15,000 or close to it right now? >> it's an interesting question because at seaport, i mean, we have a lot of retail clients and online trading product, but the phones simply aren't ringing. and they haven't been ringing. >> you mean for the trades. >> yeah, for the trades. there seems to be just little or no interest on the part of the public. i'm not sure why that is. perhaps the scars from 2008 or 2009 are still open and deep. or perhaps it's just a confidence issue that in spite of the fact that the averages are making new highs, that a lot of the headline news continues to be negative. >> a lot of it is the computerized trading, isn't it. >> it could be that, but no, because we have the computer trading also. i think it's more of a confidence issue that the public in general is for whatever
reasons not impressed. >> all right. well, at least some people are impressed with 15,000. the floor is very excited about 15,000 on the dow. brooke? >> alison kosik and teddy, forgive me. i said $15,000. i have money on the mind in the boston one fund. of course it's not in dollars and cents. but 15,000 on wall street is a good number. thousands of homes are in danger from wildfires as we've been showing you here. take a look. these are live pictures. look at this fire line. lock at the smoke. and that's a home. incredibly, incredibly close to this one home and this is one of so many in southern california. we'll take you live from one of the danger zones next. capella university understands businesses are trying to come

>> just coming up over this ridge right now on top of these two homes. and we're still seeing these firefighters standing right on this road kind of waiting to use the hoses as it comes right into the bushes right by the trees. they're turning on the water and trying to water these trees down. but by that point in time, you have to think about this, brooke. southern california in the past two years, past 24 months, should have picked up 24 inches of rain. they picked up 14. that's about half. so everything there is dry. typically, fire season doesn't even start until september or october. but it's so dry right now we're talking october kind of dry, august kind of dry. so, you know, this is a day with only winds at about 20 miles per hour. yesterday winds were 48 miles per hour. it was a firestorm yesterday. the firefighters were able to get to things today, able to keep it down a little bit, then tonight the winds are going to go back down to calm, about zero. i am very concerned that this
could be the most dangerous fire season that we've seen in years, maybe decades, when you talk about what's happening already in may. and we're not expecting a lot of rain in fire season. you get wins with santa ana, 60 to 80 miles per hour in different segments and storms when they really fire up, this could be something people really need to pay attention to. if you live in a fire land, a wild area, you need to make all those precautions, cut those trees down, get the eucalyptus away from the house, get all those things ready in case you need to leave at a moment's notice. this is a tinderbox out there, so dry just ready to burn anytime. and when you get winds like we had yesterday and even today at 20 you see what's happening right now. >> chad myers, stand by. i want to go to kyung lah, who is inside the danger zone. last time we talked you were showing us, talking act the tinderbox, how exactly dry it is there. tell me what you're seeing. >> reporter: the winds have
shifted dramatically just in this last hour, brooke. just an hour ago i was covered in white smoke. now you can see what's happening is we're getting a different wind pattern. you can see the smoke pushing back on itself. this is the air quality that everyone's living with now on the north end of this fire. and i want to point out over there and it's a little difficult to see, but what you're seeing just over my left shoulder, that is active fire. and you can see the orange flames licking up every once in a while. the winds very erratic out here. it's almost like a twisting cyclone of effect. it will be offshore then onshore winds. something that was a concern earlier in the day was the point magoo naval station. you can see it now. about an hour ago you couldn't see it at all. that actually, firefighters say, is now protected by a swamp area, marshland. so what they're really concerned with is trying to contain the fire. as you get the sense, the winds
and the smoke are shifting, it is this is a difficult job that firefighters have, trying to deal with the erratic wind patterns, the drought-like conditions, trying to keep the firefighters hydrated because look up at the sky. what we see now, temperatures are beginning to rise here. even though that sun is obscured somewhat by the smoke that we see in the area, firefighters wear that heavy gear, they are going to have a very tough, very long, and very hot day out here, brooke. >> glad to see you wearing protective glasses as well. that smoke can really burn. kyung lah, thank you. chad, back to you. this could be the most dangerous fire season we've seen in quite a while. how long looking at this picture do you think it's going to take these flames to catch onto that home? >> i think the firefighters have it. i think there's enough of a break around that home.
there's grass around the home but not cedars. you don't have the chap rel around those homes. they've cleared that out. those firefighters will stop that fire. what we saw yesterday, fires very close. at least this close to the homes. but the homes were built ten years ago or less. there's a complete different set of rules to build a house now. no wood shake shingles, not much of a wood on the outside. these homes we saw yesterday, they were all stucco, hard concrete stucco with composite or even those almost tile roofs. so those houses didn't catch on fire. when you talk about houses built in the '70s in the malibu hills, the beautiful homes owned by movie stars for years and decades, those are the homes that are most susceptible. they do still have the wood shingles or the wood siding. they're beautiful but they are a fire hazard and there are things you can do to protect those homes to almost retrofit those homes to be more fire resistant. and that's what firefighters and the local officials are asking people to do. we lost between 10 million and
12 million acres of land last year in the fire season, brooke. it's drier this year thap it was last year. the drought continues, the fires are going to continue, and it's going to be a devastatingly large fire season with at least record amounts of fire going on because we don't have any rain at all in the forecast. the sierra, the snow pack that we talk act, that snow in the higher elevations of the sierra nevada only about 20%. this is going to be dry again up and down california into utah, nevada, all of the western states literally are in some type of drought. 100%. every single acre in california is in some type of drought right now. and that's the same story almost all the way to nebraska from the dakotas and montana down to arizona and new mexico. and that's the entire western half of the u.s. will be partially at least on fire this year.
will be in danger again. >> we're going to come back to these live pictures, chad myers. i can't imagine for these homeowners to see the flames so close and know there is absolutely nothing you can do. chad, we'll come back. thank you. this big cleanup in texas is under way. you see seize zigzag formation, here they are, these train cars. this is a cargo train actually jumped the tracks. more on that. we'll tell you what about. and politics meets rock 'n' roll. chris christie and john bon jovi. the governor signing a bill that hits close to home for this new jersey rocker. y too many aren't. why? because selling their funds makes them more money. which makes you wonder -- isn't that a conflict? search "proprietary mutual funds." yikes! then go to e-trade. we've got over 8,000 mutual funds, and not one of them has our name on it. we're in the business of finding the right investments for you. e-trade. less for us. more for you. the fund's prospectus contains its investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information

victims don't end up dead. >> and i hope that governor christie's actions here will cause other states to stand up and to pay attention and also to follow in his footsteps. >> what is so personal about this for john bon jovi, it's because his family has recently been affected by drugs. his daughter reportedly overdosed on heroin in her dorm room last fall. and a dad who lost his son to leukemia has found a unique way to help hundreds of other kids win their battle against the disease. his group drives thousands of miles a year to get kids their cancer treatment, and he is this week's cnn hero. >> it's paralyzing when you hear those words, your child has cancer. i know what those families are going through. yes. it's extremely did i feel.
my son, he was diagnosed with cancer. it was such a horrifying time. we were fortunate and got him to the hospital immediately. many families don't have ta support. good morning. many of them were missing appointments. my name is richard faris. no child should miss their cancer treatment due to lack of transportation. you ready to go? we give over 2,000 rides a year. our furthest cancer patient is 120 miles away. a ride with me plays an important part of their treatment. we get them here in a nice, clean environment and on time. >> we live here. it's every day treatment. we want to fight. we're in this together. all i care right now, my daughter's life. >> when you're fighting for your child's life, nothing else matter ps. >> they pick us up in the
morning and gives us a ride back. their help is every step of the way. >> 70% of our families are spanish speaking. having a bilingual staff is extremely important. i feel like it's my obligation to help them navigate the system. take good care of yourself. from someone who's been there. >> thank you. >> even though he's passed away almost 13 years, he's the main force of this, and i feel that i'm the right person to help. >> cheese! if you would like to learn more about richard's work or if you would like to nominate someone who is doing his or her part to make the world a better place, we want you to go to cnnheroes.com. it is the video of a hollywood superstar getting arrested, and it's been everywhere now. >> i'm being arrested and handcuffed? >> yep. >> do you know my name, sir? >> don't need your name. >> you don't need to know your name? >> not quite yet.
>> okay. you're about to find out who i am. >> that is a brunette reese witherspoon confronting a police officer. we went straight to police for the entire dashcam video, and we got it. we'll show you a huge chunk of this and what else she had to say to this police officer. that is next. also, we're keeping a close eye here on this spring fire. the wildfires, the flames, the smoke, all too close for these homeowners in southern california. we have crews inside the danger zone. chad myers standing by as well. we will be right back. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word. (little girl) no! saw her first day of school. (little girl) bye bye! made a best friend forever. the back seat of my subaru is where she grew up.

over witherspoon's husband, giving him a sobriety test, then you see a brunette, reese witherspoon, get out of the car. roll it. >> get back in the car. >> i'm just -- >> ma'am. get back in that car. >> can i say something? >> no, ma'am. get back in that car. i'm not going to repeat myself again. >> i'm pregnant and i need to use the restroom. >> i need you to get back in the car. there ain't nowhere to go out here. if i tell you again, i'm going to arrest you. >> yes, sir. >> witherspoon does stay in the car for a couple minutes while the officer continues his field sobriety test. but then the officer arrests and handcuffs her husband and that is when things get out of handle. >> ma'am, what did i just tell you to do? >> i'd like the know what's going on. >> you're under arrest. >> i'm a uggs citizen. i'm allowed to stand on american ground and ask any question i want to ask. >> come on.
>> you better not arrest me. are you kidding me? >> nope. >> i told you. >> i'm an american citizen. >> i told you to get in that car and stay in there. >> this is -- >> you fight with me -- >> this is harassment. you're harassing me. i have done nothing against the law. >> yes, you have. >> i have to bay your orders? >> yes, you do. >> i've done nothing. >> reese. reese. >> i'm now being arrested and handcuffed? >> yep. >> do you know my name, sir? >> don't need your name. >> you don't need to know my name? >> not quite yet. >> okay. you're about to find out who i am. >> that's fine. i'm not really worried about it, ma'am. i told you how things work. you want to get up in my investigation, that's okay. >> yes, sir, i do. >> well, guess what, we have a word for that. it's called obstruction.
>> i'm obstructing your justice. >> yes. >> really? >> yep. >> i'm an anti-american? >> yep. sit down. it will be a lot easier on you. >> interesting. >> i tried. >> i'm sorry. i absolutely -- i had nothing to do with that. >> do you know my name? she asks? well, after her husband's arrest is complete, the officer then turns to reese witherspoon. >> yes, sir. >> understand me very well. i have a job i have to do. >> yes. >> my family play-pays me to do and everyone else in georgia. >> yes. >> when i asked you, i asked you nicely to stay in your vehicle, difld i not? >> yes, sir. >> why in god's holy name did you get out of there? >> i felt you were obstructing justice. >> how am i obstructing justice? do you see that? >> yes, sir. >> i am sworn to uphold justice.
>> i'm an american citizen.i'm allowed to do whatever i want to do. >> you cannot get out of the vehicle went i tell you not to. >> i can say whatever i want. >> you can say what ever you want. you hindered my investigation. >> if that's what you think, that's your prerogative. >> it will all be in the report. >> okay. >> i don't need to know anything from you. >> you're arresting me for obstruction of justice. it will be in the national news. i want to let you know. >> that's fine. >> i'm so glad -- >> that's fine. why on god's holy name would you have gotten up out of your car? you would have been able to drive -- >> because i wanted to talk to you like a normal person talks to a normal person. >> you told me not to get out of the car p. >> absolutely. and i said to you i disagree. because that's whimy prerogative. i'm an american citizen. >> take a seat for us, okay? >> okay. yes, sir. >> it will be easier for you, okay? >> this will be national news. i'm letting you know. >> that's fine.
>> he's arresting us. >> i understand. >> for what? what have i done? what did i do? >> he told you to stop. >> to stop. okay. i'm an american citizen. i can say whatever i want to on free ground. he does not have jurisdiction of the ground he speaks on. he does not. i'm allowed to say anything i wanted to say. i can protest. >> he asked you to get in the car. all you should have done is let me get arrested. >> arrested for what? >> a dui. and now -- >> what did i get arrested for? >> you wouldn't listen to what he said to do and you kept getting out of the car. now you've turned it. now it's news. >> would i have threatened him and put him in a position that he feels vulnerable?
honestly. come on, honey. come on. >> she hinders my investigation. she also -- >> you just turned it really bad. >> well, she said it would be national news and clearly it is. she did try to turn things around with a very public mea culpa on morning television. reese witherspoon, here she is on "good morning america." >> yeah, i have no idea what i was saying that night. i went -- i saw him arrested, my husband, and i literally panicked. and i said all kinds of crazy things. i told him i was pregnant. i'm not pregnant. i said crazy thing ps you hear me laughing because i have no idea what i was talking about and i am so sorry. i was so disrespectful to him and i have police officers in my family. i work with police officers every day. i know better. and it's just unacceptable. >> let's talk about this mea
culpa with an entertainment, public relations and brand strategist. marvett, we saw the arrest. we can talk about that in a second. but seeing her sitting there talking to george stephanopoulos on "good morning america," i have to say, i thought the apology seemed pretty legit. what did you think? >> the apology was crafty and strategic. no surprise since reese witherspoon certainly has one of the most potent brands in hollywood. but she was sincere. she was honest. and she was heart felt for the most part. she was more honest than we've seen a lot of celebrities. she took immediate ownership to everything that she said and did. she even admitted to lying about being pregnant, which is unusual. you don't see a lot of celebr y celebrities coming forth and admitting and taking full ownership and even taking ownership for things that weren't really widely reported. so it was a great strategy and a great apology by reese witherspoon. >> and, you know, when you think about her reputation, she seems to be this all-around good girl
in hollywood which, you know, seems sort of hard to find when you think of the reese witherspoon brand, do you think it's marred at all by this? >> not at all. you know, she did what many americans or many individuals would have done. she thought she was protected by being an american, but more importantly, she was defending her husband, a loved one. who wouldn't do what reese witherspoon stepped up and did? you know, certainly she should have listened. she thought her celebrity superseded authority, and that's where the line was drawn. so certainly, you know, she should have gotten back in the vehicle perhaps but for her, she stepped up to protect a loved one and i think that she stepped forward immediately, took ownership rather than releasing a statement, which a lot of celebrities do. she faced the music head on, and i believe that she'll move past this chapter very swiftly. >> she totally did. kudos to her. but still the whole, do you know who i am? just don't say that. marvett, thank you so much for
joining me here on reese witherspoon. >> you're welcome. he was the founding father of one of heavy metal's groundbreaking groups, but today fans are mourning his loss. jeff hannon was the guitar analyst the band slayier and theories about the cause of death are swirling online, including rumors of a spider bite. we went to one of the nation's stop expers on spider bites. his reaction coming up next. also, again, watching very closely the flames and the smoke. this fire barely contained here in southern california. the spring fire again. we have a crew covering this for us in the danger zone. we'll get you live to southern california coming up. we went out and asked people a simple question:
how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪
away yesterday in southern california. ♪ a band spokesman says hanneman died of liver failure. the band also notes that he had been in bad shape since a spider bit him more than a year ago. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen, what happened? >> we don't though exactly because the doctors haven't explained it all. but what we know from the slayier website and from classic rock magazine. let's take a look at some of the basics here. he allegedly had a spider bite on his arm. it appears it was more than a year ago. he had surgery to remove dead tissue and he says when he got that bite he could see the flesh corrupting. that's a quote. and he was an hour away from death at that point. so that's -- you know, that's
what's been out there. but again, we haven't heard from his doctors so we don't know exactly what's happened. snoopt. >> i don't want to know if i want to know what flesh corrupting really means. is the spider bite linked to his death or not? >> we've been talking to experts about this and they say it is extremely unlikely it's the spider bite that caused his death. they say it's almost implausible. they say first of all studies show a lot of people think they have spider bites when they have some other kind of skin thing going on but it's not a spider bite. secondly, spider bites usually go away on their own and if you do get an infection after you get the bite that can be treated with antibiotics. so basically the experts we talked to said as a rule these things can be dreet trooeted and also the time line seems -- you know, it's sort of interesting. you get a spider bite then this death comes more than a year later, that time line sort of gooif the experts pause as well.
>> elizabeth cohen, thank you. up next, our new segment, "hit play," the day's best video. here's one of them. it is a bear in a car. lock the doors. this bear did. and then ripped apart the interior. more bizarre videos like this one next. and later, this day in history with a unique cnn twist just because we can. "cnn classic" is minutes away. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover, and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company.
i've been with bp for 24 years. i was part of the team that helped deliver on our commitments to the gulf - and i can tell you, safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge safety equipment and technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all our drilling activity, twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. safety is a vital part of bp's commitment to america - and to the nearly 250,000 people who work with us here. we invest more in the u.s. than anywhere else in the world. over fifty-five billion dollars here in the last five years - making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger.
jay joins me now from washington. and so, jake, i know today you have been digging on thousand these tsarnaev brothers in boston may have been self-radicalized online. what have you learned? >> well, obviously, they both left foot prints on the interwebs. you have tamerlan tsarnaev, the youtube channel that is thought to have been his, and then of course other evidence that is online including dzhokhar tsarnaev saying that he and his brother watched videos from radical clerics abroad, one u.s. official saying anwar al awlaki is thought to have been one of the clerics, likely was one of the clerics. there's "inspire" magazine, that's the al qaeda magazine out of aqap al qaeda in the peninsula, yemen, and their bomb making information within that. we'll be delving into that. there's also this other
discussion about the concept of self-radicalization and whether or not that's actually real, because of course there is an entire apparatus set up for individuals to become, quote, unquote, self-radicalized. there are videos. there is information. there is a chat room. if that apparatus is there, is it really self-radicalization or individuals being swept into an organization, a jihadi organization? so we'll be talking about all of this, looking into it, and also discussing the psychology of self-radicalization with a g.w. psychiatry and behavioral sciences professor. that's all coming up in 11 minutes on "the lead." >> in 11 minutes. we'll look forward. jake tapper, thank you very much. and now some of the hottest videos of the day. hit play. get layed. a message plastered across a billboard in connecticut. 20 feet high. it's really an ad for a flooring
company, but of course this fight has become partisan. >> i don't think there's anything wrong with it. >> no class, as far as i'm concerned. >> but if you need new floors, they have you covered. the latest buzz in tucson? a giant swarm of bees. tens of thousands of them, and they're pretty mad. >> we haven't seen this much aggression in a very long time. >> it got so bad, firefighters were called in, crews foamed the streets and the bees finally calmed down. an emergency landing in a highway in colorado. a pilot begins having engine trouble and then -- >> drivers must have been paying attention to what was going on and seen the plane coming in and cleared the kra to let that plane come in. >> the pilot walked away without a scratch. a grisly discovery in this guy's pickup. a driver finds a black bear in
his truck but realizes somehow this big guy has locked the doors. >> he had both hands on the steering wheel, was honking the horn and it was pretty amusing for a while. to oklahoma, where police arrest a college student after finding pot, pills and a live alligator inside his car. >> the alligators are prohibited by any person to possess in the state of oklahoma. they've been on a prohibited list. >> the gator, in custody. no word as to why or how these two met, and that is today's hit play. coming up next, we'll take you live to southern california. this wildfire, 10,000 acres have burned since yesterday. we're live from inside the danger zone, next. capella university understands rough economic times have led to an increase in clinical depression.
drug and alcohol abuse is up. and those dealing with grief don't have access to the professional help they need. when you see these issues, do you want to walk away or step up? with a degree in the field of counseling or psychology from capella university, you'll have the knowledge to make a difference in the lives of others. let's get started at capella.edu i'm also a survivor of ovarian a writand uterine cancers. i even wrote a play about that. my symptoms were a pain in my abdomen and periods that were heavier and longer than usual for me. if you have symptoms that last two weeks or longer, be brave, go to the doctor. ovarian and uterine cancers are gynecologic cancers. symptoms are not the same for everyone. i got sick...and then i got better.
want to take you back to california to ventura county to be specific. and that is where we have these wildfires. 10,000 acres have been burning since just yesterday. the crew inside the danger zone. how bad is it? >> reporter: well, take a look for yourself, brooke. what you're looking at are california firefighters doing what they're trying to do to control and contain the north end of this fire. i'm on the north part of the fire. what you can see there, and take a good look. firefighters are actually digging a trench around it. they're using chain saws trying to work with this very difficult
brush. this brush is so flammable, if you touch it, when it's not on fire, it will break in your hands. so these are some very difficult conditions that firefighters are working in. we're going to zoom out a little bit and take a look at this entire fire line. this is the north line again. as you look all the way through here, you can see the smoke. the wind is pushing from the ocean inland. that's good news, because that's cooler wind. firefighters say that what they need now is for that wind to be consistent. they've had a very difficult time with the swirling winds, the hot winds that have been coming in from the desert, as well as the extreme heat here in california. and all the way over here, it's a little difficult to see, as well. this isn't that far away, but because they're separated by so much black smoke, that's the northern line of the fire. firefighters hoping that they're going to be able to get a handle on it this afternoon here in
california. but right now, only 10% containment. brooke? >> thank you. we'll look for more coming up next on "the lead." meantime, what were you doing on this day in 2010? cnn all over a major news story. that clip is up next in what we're calling "cnn flashback." . ♪ ♪ this is a stunning work of technology. ♪ this is the 2013 lexus es and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses.

nostalgia. we'll taking a look at history as it unfolded three years ago today. this is our cnn "classic moment." >> i just want to recap for any viewers just joining us. within the last hour and a half or so, investigative authorities made an arrest at jfk international airport in new york of a man they wish to speak to following the failed car bombing attempt in new york's times square on saturday night. we know that he was trying to fly abroad. that potential suspect was the buyer of the suv car found in times square over the weekend, fitted with a car bomb. >> the suspect, of course, was essentially sentenced to life in prison. he tried using pressure cookers full of fireworks.
