fox news has obtained dramatic new video out of somalia after that bombing of a passenger airliner there. surveillance footage shows an airport worker, we're told, handing a laptop to a passenger. a source close to the investigation tells fox news that investigators do believe that laptop contained a bomb that was responsible for the explosion in the plane. live in johannesburg, south africa, with the latest on this investigation. hi, paul. >> caller: hi, eric. the big question being asked today is was the bomb on a
12:32 pm
somali plane this week an inside job? investigators say the explosion in flight was caused by a bomb hid nden in a laptop. closed circuit video from mogadishu's airport of a laptop being handed over to a passenger by airport officials shortly before the flight took off has been obtained. investigators including several from the fbi are examining this video. in the security video an airport worker and a man in white shirt and dark trousers is first seen walking along a walkway to the side of one of the airport's open departure lounges. the man in the white shirt can be seen carrying a small laptop. within a few moments the man in the white shirt and the man in the airport vest come back into the picture from the bottom of the frame, stop another man and hand him the laptop. all three men move off within seconds. investigators believe the man who was handed the laptop then took it onboard the flight and either detonate d a bomb inside the laptop himself or held the
12:33 pm
laptop until a timer set explosives off in the takeoff climb. burning, he then fell out of the plane to his death. investigators are looking into how the suspect laptop got into the air side departure lounge. positioned after the x-ray security checks. fox news has just learned from mogadishu that reportedly the man in the white shirt who originally had the laptop perhaps fearing investigators questioning the airport worker in the vest has reportedly killed him, eric. >> wow. thank you so much. getting back to politics now and getting younger voters. recent polls show bernie sanders beating hillary clinton handily with this group. so what are campaigns doing? mike emanuel is live from manchester, new hampshire, with the story. >> caller: hi, arthel. for hillary clinton and her
12:34 pm
campaign, the struggle with young women voters. clinton has brought some prominent women out on the trail with her including former secretary of state madeleine albright and some female senators, but those are obviously older women not the young demographic. on the campaign trail here in new hampshire, albright hammered this point home. >> you have to help hillary clinton will always be there for you. and just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. >> reporter: senator bernie sanders has been emphasizing the issues of student debt and college affordability and those are some of the ideas that appear to be helping him connect with young voters. this week clinton was confronted with the fact sanders beat her by 70 points in iowa with women under 30. >> that's amazing. i accept the fact that i have work to do to convey what i stand for, what i've accomplished, what i want to do
12:35 pm
for young people in our country. >> reporter: here in new hampshire we've spoken with some young women and they don't sound like they feel obligated to vote for clinton. >> i don't think being a woman necessarily makes you better for the job like for women's rights. i don't think you have to be a woman to support women. >> i think bernie does as well but he is more encompassing of everyone not just women. >> feel the bern. >> there's a frustration among hillary clinton and her campaign that so far younger women are not rallying around her. arthel? >> okay, thank you very much, mike emanuel. eric? republican presidential candidates are touching on the use of interrogation techniques in last night's debate. texas senator ted cruz was specifically asked about the issue of waterboarding, and he said he's not totally opposed to it. >> well, under the definition of torture, it's not. torture is excruciating pain
12:36 pm
that is equivalent to losing organs and systems. so under the definition of torture, it is not. it is enhanced interrogation, vigorous interrogation. you can rest assured that as commander in chief i would use whatever enhanced interrogation methods we could to keep this country safe. >> polling averages put mr. cruz in the distant fourth place in new hampshire after he won iowa. how will he do on tuesday? a former republican senator from new hampshire is in manchester and he is co-chair of the coalition vets for ted cruz. senator, it's always good to see you. >> great to see you, eric. >> you, too. you know your state. you don't have the evangelicals of iowa. not as conservative. ronald reagan and pat buchanan and others have won. you say ted cruz reminds me of me. what do you mean by that? >> what i mean by that, eric, he's a consistent conservative who stands for his principles, makes promises to the american
12:37 pm
people that he keeps, and he's that consistent conservative that i can count on that i don't have to worry about, you know, changing his position. if you watched that debate last night you see donald trump, who was in favor of private to private eminent domain where you can take people's property because you don't like what that property is and turn it into some other piece of private enterprise. that's pretty serious business. that's a violation of the constitution, in my view, and it's a big government view of eminent domain. and then you saw marco rubio who was just maneuvering all over the place trying to explain why he was with president obama and chuck schumer on being with the gang of eight on this amnesty bill that would promote more amnesty and certainly promote not closing the borders. this is what the american people are sick of, this kind of
12:38 pm
maneuvering. >> how do you think that will resonate with the voters in your state because he has remained in fourth. some polls have senator cruz at third. what does he have to do? the campaign says they'll be happy if he comes in one to four. >> it's very interesting. senator cruz 51,000 plus votes in iowa, the largest number ever in the iowa caucuses. i've represented them for a number of years. they make their own decisions. they're not a rubber stamp. we want to be competitive. that's our goal is to be competitive. try to unite conservatives, here is our opportunity. if conservatives will unite, then we're competitive and that's what we want to do. you really have a choice if you
12:39 pm
want to get rid of obamacare you have to have somebody willing to fight to get rid of it. senator cruz does. if you want to not have amnesty and seal the borders, he has been consistent with his position on that. rubio has not. you can go down the line on issues. they're sick and tired of the promise ts that are unkept and the fact that our debt goes up every year. the borders don't get sealed. we don't get rid of -- defund planned parenthood. we don't get rid of common core. people don't keep their commitments. that's why i hope the conservatives will hear that message and understand that senator cruz means what he says and he'll do what he says. >> and the ben carson campaign. >> dr. carson apologized last night on national television in a debate. it was a cnn report that got
12:40 pm
dissemina disseminated. it's over. it happened in iowa. this all should be put hyped us. >> as we go forward, tell us about your state. you have these undeclareds. most people around the country don't know as you do, senator, you can be undeclared. you sign up and walk in and vote and the minute you leave, you can unregister and go back to be undeclared. 90% of the undeclareds the last time voted republican. what do you expect we'll get and with so many do you think they will be the key to whoever could win or come in second or third on tuesday? >> i think undeclareds are key and they have the opportunity to vote for sanders if they want to. some undeclareds who voted in the republican primary last time
12:41 pm
will likely go vote in the democrat primary. we do hear some of that. it's not in the polling it shows. look, who knows. right mao i think the main thing is don't take any voter for granted. of all people bob smith knows what polls are. i was predicted the loser in 1996 and was sworn in as a u.s. senator. it's all over the place right now. we're competitive. we want our country back. ted cruz can do that. he's a leader. he's intelligent. he knows the issues. and i would just say real quickly, i don't know how much time you have, but last night where i was the proudest of senator cruz, we had a 3:00 in the morning phone call moment
12:42 pm
when senator cruz was asked point black by martha hradek, that's a 3:00 in the morning call. he acted calmly, very presidential and took that issue and explained it in a way that a president -- i would want my president to do. furthermore said we're going to do what we have to do to stop the north koreans and the missile if they did fire it. >> well, that is certainly a concern with the predictions that they're trying to develop something, a warhead, that could hit u.s. soil or get to hawaii. part of the debate, senatorob smith, we thank you from your old stomping ground of manchester, new hampshire. you really are yankee, independent, and have a great spirit in new hampshire. thank you. >> we like to meet the voters one-on-one and that's what smor cruz has been doing. >> that's true as well as the other ones, too. thank you, senator. >> we're going to continue the discussion on the north korea launching another rocket
12:43 pm
triggering alarms around the globe. general jack keen will explain the military danger to the region and the world. and this topic got quite a bit of attention in last night's debate. here's senator marco rubio. >> the world is not safer today than it was seven years ago. it's more dangerous. there is a lunatic. there's no other way to describe him. a lunatic in north korea. with nuclear weapons launching long-range missiles. heartburn! no one burns on my watch! try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief.

e*trade is all about seizing opportunity. and i'd like to... cut. so i'm gonna take this opportunity to direct. thank you, we'll call you. evening, film noir, smoke, atmosphere... bob... you're a young farmhand and e*trade is your cow. milk it. e*trade is all about seizing opportunity. the u.s. calling for international action after north korea launched a long range holding an emergency meeting today to condemn the ban test, of dangerous ballistic missile technology. former vice chief of staff of the army, the institute for the
12:48 pm
study of war and a fox news military analyst. general, always good to see you. >> how dangerous is this for the u.s. and japan? >> even though the capability may be several weeks away which many of the experts do believe, this is a threat to the united states and to the american people. all the activities we've been watching for years, they're a threat to our interests in the region. what they're doing here that enters out of space, leaves the earth's atmosphere and comes back into the earth's atmosphere somewhere in the vicinity of a target, think the united states, and trying to miniaturize nuclear weapon so it could be placed on top of that ballistic missile, that is a major threat and something we can't tolerate.
12:49 pm
we have to start doing that now. >> i want to ask you what that is but first show you what governor kasich had to say about this as it came up in last night's gop debate. >> we have to be very tough on this and frankly i think we could have let the japanese know that if you want to take action on that missile that's rising, you want to take action, you will have our support if you think that's the best to do. we cannot continue to be weak in the face of the north koreans or the entire rest of the world. >> i had walked to get something out of the refrigerator at that moment. i turned around, governor kasich, that's going to start a war. am i right? we have your back. >> i don't get involved in the middle of these political debates, that's for sure. in terms of military action, clearly in my judgment we're not
12:50 pm
there yet. if they had that capability certainly we would be, but they don't have that capability. there are many things that we can still do to stop them from getting there. certainly what samantha powers was trying to do with the u.n. is a step in that direction. we have to lead the effort for economic sanctions and, listen, we get their attention when we go after their personal finances. we've done this before. >> we're going to keep supporting you. >> what i was trying to say, it does work. we got their attention the last time when we shut down, this is what i'm saying, the regime's personal finances. that worked. we can do that again. realistically we've got to put in missile defense in south korea, in japan. some of our best systems we have, the army has those systems and, also -- >> general keane, i have to take a break. we'll let you finish your answer on the other side of the break. thank you, sir.
12:51 pm
it's a fact. kind of like social media equals anti-social. hey guys, i want you to meet my fiancée, denise. hey. good to meet you dennis. whei just put in the namey, of my parents and my grandparents. and as soon as i did that, literally it was like you're getting 7, 9, 10, 15 leaves that are just popping up all over the place. yeah, it was amazing. just with a little bit of information, you can take leaps and bounds. it's an awesome experience. all across the state the economy is growing,arts today. with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech. and on long island, where great universities are creating next generation technologies. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov

12:54 pm
continuing now with general jack keane. general keane, i wanted to give you an opportunity to give us the answers to what you think, how should the u.s. and allies handle north korea and these
12:55 pm
provocations with these testings of ballistic missiles. >> well, following what i said in terms of u.n. sanctions and going after the regime's personal finances, missile defense systems in south korea, and in japan that we can provide. also got to read the national missile defense. this technology is advancing, and we do not have good systems right now to protect against it. we've got to work with china. everybody knows that. but china's trying to avoid political and economic collapse. this action pushes north korea closer to that. it pushes north korea closer to a war, which they obviously would lose and that system would collapse and china would bear the brunt of that burden. so those kind of negotiations have got to take place. and the other thing we've got to recognize is whatever north korea is doing with nuclear weapons and with missiles, they are collaborating with their closest ally, which is iran. so that also adds to the threat
12:56 pm
to the american people. >> absolutely. general keane, i appreciate your time. i appreciate your analysis. and thank you for sticking around so we could clarify that. it's always good to see you, sir. >> glad to help out. >> i appreciate it. thank you so much. there's some serious bragging rights. super bowl 50 is just a few hours away. and the governors are going to be here live. both contested governors. >> they are betting on the super bowl. big-time. >> that in the next hour, as fox news channel's coverage of the election and the primary in new hampshire continues. it takes a lot of work... to run this business. i'm on the move all day long... and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of protein to help maintain muscle.
