1:55 am
that explosive seize targeting the paris attack mastermind began. french s.w.a.t. teams trying to bust into this apartment building, but running into a reinforced door. once inside, met by gunfire. terrified families living nearby, shocked awake by the barrage of bullets. when it was all over, eight arrested and at least two dead. a woman who detonated a suicide belt and another person killed by a grenade. this cell phone video shows s.w.a.t.eams leading suspects, some stripped of their clothing, away from the scene. the apartment building itself pock marked and barely standing. so far the french prosecutor says isis leader abdelhamid abaaoud is not among the people arrested, but it's not clear if he was killed. also stunning new images from the daily mail of friday's deadly rampage captured on a cafe surveillance camera.

1:58 am
>> close the switch and arm the timer to start the -- its countdown and, boom. >> reporter: the plane blew up 22 minutes after takeoff. based on the location of the wreckage, u.s. authorities believe the bomb was likely placed in a rear luggage hold of the plane by an isis infill trart. in this online post, isis boasted it smuggled the bomb onto the russian jet after it discovered a way to compromise the security at the sharm el sheikh airport. in a grisly footnote, they even produced passports of some of the russian victims, somehow retrieved by the terror group at the scene of the crash. u.s. aviation officials say screening machines should spot a soda can bomb, but there is concern that no security system is foolproof. isis said it originally planned to target another country, part of the u.s. coalition against isis, but changed its mind and decided to hit russia when russia decided to hit syria. brian ross, abc news, new york. the new security concerns

only two people to anchor this phenomenal broadcast and "good morning america." kevin newman spent a year and a half in this studio, a time in which canadians like himself held an iron grip on the "world news now" anchor desk. >> so true. >> and mccree, famous for never sitting behind a traditional anchor desk. they wererthe pioneers, the founding mother and father, really, of this famous anchor team of "world news now." we welcome them now, kevin and lisa. we have been awaiting your arrival. this is so much fun. >> oh, look how old he is? >> you were 12 years old when you broadcast, weren't you? >> i had a lot more hair, too. >> holy cow. >> what do you guys think? you're back now. >> you know, it was a brand new show for me. aaron brown and i started the show with our executive producer. i'm still friends with both of them. i love them. you know, they will be friends forever. and we just made it up as we
2:10 am
watching. it was like the mice were coming in and moving the furniture around. >> we still feel like that today. >> you know, those people upstairs, they're not watching us. >> it really was the -- i think the most liberating broadcasting i've ever done in my career, because you could make it up. and you did have that feeling of, you know, nobody's watching and i've never felt closer to viewers and m audience than i did on this audience. >> you started this show. what was it like in the very beginning? >> we had a basement office because the grownups wouldn't let us come upstairs i think until they made sure we could be on the air for a week. it was dank and dark and there were exposed pipes and it was -- you know, then we wt to -- all the grownups would let us come upstairs and practice. peter jennings had his desk right here with the working news room behind him. this whole space you use as a studio was a big working news room. and we practiced and rehearsed at that big desk.
2:11 am
david borman was like, it's not working. it's just not right. he was like, aaron, take off the jacket. aaron, roll up your sleeves. >> they were always twisting form. that's what's beautiful at "world news now." if you think about the ethic of internet broadcasting, that you do roll up your sleeves, you are much more comfortable in your skin and much more of a person, less than an authority anchor, i think that's the stuff that was pioneered here. >> did you think the show would last that long? >> nothing lasts that long. >> i know. hard to believe. >> it does a great service for people who are newsmakers. when aaron and i started the program, it was the primary season of the '92 election. there was this unknown guy from hope, and he was happy to come in and be on tv for 15 minutes straight without anybody breaking in for commercial. >> really? you had him here? >> of course. >> one of the things i'm probably mostroud of is when we were here, we actually pushed this broadcast out over the internet. so, "world news now" is actually the very first television
2:12 am
newscast ever on the internet. so, we threw it out there. i still remember sitting at the desk, which was there, and seeing the signal come back. oh, my goodness, like, at that time, you never saw your audience. today you see your audience, you hear from them. >> how was the format different from back when you started to today, what would you say? >> aaron and i started the morning papers. nobody did that. we had papers from -- you probably remember. i'm pointing at our director knows. >> anybody remember newspapers? >> when would go to the fax machine. we would go to the fax machine and the guys from the dallas morning news, an actual fax, dallas morning news, pittsburgh, whatever it was, fax us the headlines and hold them up. >> and there are those ideas. we used to do this thing called dare news. it's still a great idea where you would take a newscast from another country, subtitle it. we would run their news, which was always enlightening to see -- imagine today the kind of story you would get from jordan, for instance, of the syrian refugees. >> and how different they cover it.
2:13 am
>> it was a story about polka on the air, and big mouth says -- like, within a week, it took a week for mail back then, there were still ponies that brought it here. huge piles of these polka lovers who are hating me. i had to do an on-air mea culpa and then barry mitchell shows up. >> just to torture you every week. >> and he's sti around. that would be a sad day in "world news now.." >> 4:00, all alone and you're not wearing pants. "world news now" is making everybody dance. >> what would you say before we head out -- what would you say is probably your favorite memory of what you remember most about your time here on "world news now." >> the camaraderie, i think. it was just everybody working a hard shift, but loving each other's company so much, and the freedom. >> i have to say, you know, some of the people we work with have
2:14 am
become just life-long friends. i remember christie coal bin who worked -- of course, she got married at my house in los angeles. you know, because you bond in a way that's just so differenen and nobody reallyynderstands your pain. i don't want to -- i don't want to do a disservice to service people by saying it's like being -- there is a bunker mentality about it. and that's something you share. and i value those friendships. >> kevin, you've just written a new book out, too. >> i have. the interesting thing about it is it's sort inform retrospect. i'm looking back at the time i came here and how much, you know, very busy life, whether it's in broadcasting, whatever it is, what that takes from your children. but the interesting thing is, i've co-written it with my son. it's this memoir of the same period of time from two very different perspectives. if you're a really brave parent in 15 years, ask your kid to write a book about how you did as a parent because it's -- it gives you a chance to do better. >> thank you, guys, so much for joining us.

3:17 am
that explosive siege targeting the paris attack mastermind began. [ gunfire ] french s.w.a.t. teams trying to bust into this apartment building, but running into a reinforced door. once inside, met by gunfire. [ gunfire ] terrified families living nearby, shocked awake by the barrage of bullets. when it was all over, eight arrested and at least two dead. a woman who detonated a suicide belt and another person killed by a grenade. this cell phone video shows s.w.a.t. teams leading suspects, some stripped of their clothing, away from the scene. the apartment building itself pock marked and barely standing. so far the french prosecutor says isis leader abdelhamid abaaoud is not among the people arrested, but it's not clear if he was killed. also, stunning new images from the "daily mail" of friday's deadly rampage captured on a cafe surveillance camera. an attacker appears in the upper

fire. he walks out of the frame and then reappears, taking aim at a customer outside, but his weapon jams and he moves on. seconds later, that would-be victim pops up and escapes. and this morning police are still looking for two suspects believed to be among the terrorists who carried out friday's attacks. kendis and reena. >> marci gonzalez reporting from paris. back home new york city officials are responding forcefully to the latest threat from isis. the group released this video showing images of times square but the mayor says there's no specific or credible threat. he urg new yorkers to go about their regular business. the mayor spoke alongside the police commissioner just a few hours ago in times square. >> there is nothing new about that video. new york, obviously, remains one of the top terrorist targets in the world. in new york we understand we're

3:20 am
countdown and, boom. >> reporter: the plane blew up 22 minutes after takeoff. based on the location of the wreckage, u.s. authorities believe the bomb was likely placed in a rear luggage hold of the plane by an isis infiltrator. in this online post, isis boasted it smuggled the bomb onto the russian jet after it discovered a way to compromise the security at the sharm el sheikh airport. in a grisly footnote, they even produced passports of some of the russian victims, somehow retrieved by the terror group at the scene of the crash. u.s. aviation officials say screening machines should spot a soda can bomb, buthere is concern that no security system is foolproof. isis said it originally planned to target another country, part of the u.s. coalition against isis, but changed its mind and decided to hit russia when russia, too, decided to bomb syria. brian ross, abc news, new york. the new security concerns sparked by the terror attacks

3:31 am
phenomenal broadcast and "good morning america." kevin newman spent a year and a half in is studio, a time in which canadians like himself held an iron grip on the "world news now" anchor desk. >> so true. >> and lisa mcree, famous for never sitting behind a traditional anchor desk. she and aaron brown, they were the pioneers, the founding mother and father, really, of this famous anchor team of "world news now." we welcome them now, kevin and lisa. i can't tell you, we have been awaiting your arrival. >> oh, look how old he is? >> you were 12 years old when you broadcast, weren't you? >> i had a lot more hair, too. >> holy cow. >> what do you guys think? you're back now. >> you know, it was a brand-new show for me. aaron brown and i started the show with our executive producer. i'm still friends with both of them.
3:32 am
went along. watching. it was like the mice were coming in and moving the furniture around. >> we still feel like that today. >> you know, those people upstairs, they're not watching us. >> it really was the -- i think the most liberating broadcasting i've ever done in my career, because you could make it up. and you did have that feeling of, you know, nobody's watching and i've never felt closer to viewers and my audience than i did on this broadcast. >> you started this show. what was it like in the very beginning? >> we had a basement office because the grownups wouldn't let us come upstairs i think until they made sure we could be on the air for a week. it was dank and dark and there were exposed pipes and it was -- you know, then we went to -- all the grownups would let us come upstairs and practice. peter jennings had his desk right here with the working news room behind him. this whole space you use as a studio was a big working news room. and we practiced and rehearsed at that big desk. and our executive producer,
3:33 am
working. it's just not right. he was like, aaron, take off the jacket. aaron, roll up your sleeves. >> they were always twisting form. that's what's beautiful at "world news now." if you think about the ethic o internet broadcasting, that you do roll up your sleeves, you are much more comfortable in your skin and much more of a person, less of an authority anchor, i think that's the stuff that was pioneered here. >> did you think the show would last that long? >> nothing lasts that long. >> i know. hard to believe. >> it does a great service for people who are newsmakers. when aaron and i started the program, it was the primary season of the '92 election. there was this unknown guy from hope, and he was happy to come in and be on tv for 15 minutes straight without anybody breaking in for commercial. >> really? you had him here? >> of course. >> one of the things i'm probably most proud of is when we were here, we actually pushed this broadcast out over the internet.
3:34 am
the very first television newscast ever on the internet. so, we threw it out there. i still remember sitting at the desk, which was there, and seeing the signal come back. oh, my goodness, like, at that time, you never saw your audience. today you see your audience, you hear from them. >> how was the format different from back when you started to today, what would you say? >> aaron and i started the morning papers. nobody did that. we had papers from -- you probably remember. i'm pointing at our director nole. >> anybody remember newspapers? >> when would go to the fax machine. we would go to the fax machine and the guys from "the dallas morning news," an actual fax, "dallas morning news," pittsburgh, whatever it was, fax us the headlines and hold them up. >> and there are those ideas. we used to do this thing called dare news. it's still a great idea where you would take a newscast from another country, subtitle it. we would run their news, which was always enlightening to see -- imagine today the kind of story you would get from jordan, for instance, of the syrian refugees. >> and how different they cover
3:35 am
>> it was a story about polka on the air, and big mouth says -- like, within a week, it took a week for mail back then, there were still ponies that brought it here. huge piles of these polka lovers who are hating me. i had to do an on-air mea culpa and then barry mitchell shows up. >> just to torture you every week. >> that is funny. and he's still around. we could never lose him from "world news now." that would be a sad day in "world news now" history. >> 4:00, all alone and you're not wearing pants. "world news now" is making everybody dance. >> what would you say before we head out -- what would you say is probably your favorite memory of what you remember most about your time here on "world news now." >> the camaraderie, i think. it was just everybody working a hard shift, but loving each other's company so much, and the freedom. >> i have to say, you know, some of the people we work with have
3:36 am
become just life-long friends. i remeer christie colbin, who worked -- of course, she got married at my house in los angeles. you know, because you bond in a way that's just so different, and nobody really understands your pain. i don't want to -- i don't want to do a disservice to service people by saying it's like being -- there is a bunker mentality about it. and that's something you share. and i value those friendships. >> kevin, you've just written a new book out, too. >> i have. the interesting thing about it is it's sort of in retrospect. i'm looking back at the time i came here and how much, you know, very busy life, whether it's in broadcasting, whatever it is, what that takes from your children. but the interesting thing is, i've co-written it with my son. it's this memoir of the same period of time from two very different perspectives. if you're a really brave parent in 15 years, ask your kid to write a book about how you did as a parent because it's -- it gives you a chance to do better. >> thank you, guys, so much for joining us. you're watching "world news now."
