7:01 am
a wing walker falls hundreds of feet to his death after trying a stunt. the inside story from a weekend of catastrophes. and hollywood's wedding of ththyear. beaming bride kim kardashian says a lavish "i do." what happened behind the scenes. our lara spencer was there. good morning, everyone. and want to get right to what's happening in tripoli right now. it's sheer chaos. no sign of gadhafi. rebels are combing the capital for him as we speak. firefights reported earlier near his compound. rebels trying to storm it. >> it's the final battle. but a top u.s. official on the ground all weekend tells us that gadhafi is already part of libya's past. said that his regime is beyond
7:02 am
the tipping point. the rebels now occupy 95% of the city. there are clashes right now in green square at gadhafi's pals and the hotel where all the journalists are holed up. in a minute we'll speak with one right in the midide of the fi t fight. we begin with abc's jeffrey kofman. >> reporter: this is the moment that so many here in libya have been waiting so long to see. this revolution has taken six months, but many libyans have waited their entire lives to see their brutal dictator brought down. and today after 41 years they're watching the gadhafi regime crumble. there's no question this is the end, but it's not over yet. overnight rebel forces entered the capital tripoli with little resistance faking control of government buildings and most of the city. thousands more celebrated in the rebel capital of benghazi.
7:03 am
firing flares and fireworks jumping up and down, raising the rebel flag. they captured at least two of gadhafi's sons. the one question that's not clear, though, where is gadhafi himself, and what will happen to him? many are prepared to wait for the answer to that taking comfort in knowing that he no longer controls this country. president obama welcomed the news and said in a statement, "tripoli is slipping from the grasp of a tyrant." lilians around the world hln are celebrated in the streets, in cairo, in london. even outside the white house. as we made our way towards tripoli, we encountered groups like this outlying towns, bundling in cars and trucks ready to fight to the end to make this victory their own. >> it's the right time to free our land and to establish a democracy in our country and to free our people. >> you can see the scene there with jeffery. a lot of chaos, a lot of fighting this morning. this was the scene this morning as a bbc reporter approached the
7:04 am
capital coming under heavy fire this morning. >> reporter: up ahead there are still signs of fighting, but then we ran straight into annage bush. we saw a 20 millimeter anti-aircraft cannon firing directly in front of us. it's clear that despite the overnight celebrations, this is still a city that is far from safe or secure. >> and joining us now live from the bbc is math true price. he's in that hotel george alluded to earlier where journalists are holed up.
7:05 am
what are you hearing and seeing right now? >> behind me there has b bn a very big battle going on, robin, this morning, loud explosion, heavy machine gunfire, heavy weapons being used. smoke has been on the horizon. we understand that colonel gadhafi's compound has been under attack and that tanks have pushed them back. we're told that the rebels have taken many casualties. >> no doubt that he's losing his grip there in the capital? >> reporter: it's very difficult to hear your questions, i'm afraid, robin. but as for the opposition last night, they took to the streets. they were jubilant. they were celebrating what they believed was a victory here in tripoli. it isn't as simple as that. colonel gadhafi's troops are on the ground in parts of this city. they still control parts of it. this may feel like the endgame, but this battle isn't over yet. >> is there a sense that he's there in the compound, gadhafi? what are you hearing about where he possibly could be at this hour? >> reporter: on the question of
7:06 am
where colonel gadhafi may be, it's my instinct that he hasn't left the country. it's my estimate, for what it's worth, that he's still here in tripoli or in his hometown which is his stronghold where he would have a lot of support around him where he could fight to the death if that's what he wants to do. >> all right, matthew price, thank you very much. stay safe. thank you. for more on this, let's turn to the top american diplomat on the ground, since secretary jeffrey felton, who spent the weekend with the rebel forces in benghazi. thanks for joining us, mr. secretary. we just heard out of london saying that 95% of tripoli is controlled now by the rebels. is that the same information you have? >> we've heard the same reports you have, george. i can't confirm it on the ground. but i think what's clear is that the rebels are winning. that it's only a matter of time now bebere, you know, gadhafi has to step down,
7:07 am
before gadhafi loses the entire country. >> so the gadhafi regime is past the tipping point now? >> absolutely. >> do you have any sense of where mr. gadhafi may be? >> we don't. it's interesting for the recent, you know, announcements that he's made, the press conferences he's made, the calls to tripoli to defend itself, of course no one responded in the way he wanted them to, he's not been seen physically. so people i don't think have a good sense of where he is right now, but it almost doesn't matter. >> why not? >> because the rebels are clearly taking over the cities, taking over the institutio. we have just gotten reports that they have taken over state television. people now to look to libya's future. >> you spent several days in benghazi with the rebel leaders talking with them about the post-gadhafi libya. what plans are in place to secure and govern libya? >> so the first step they're trying to do is prevent some
7:08 am
kind of cycle where people act out their own retributions. i think that's a very, very important first step. there's a lot of post-gadhafi planning that has taken place about how to govern the institutions and to make sure that essential services are provided. >> all of us remember the chaos and the killing after saddam hussein fell in iraq. are you confident it can be avoided in libya? >> i don't predict anything here. a lot of that sectarian mix that was in saddam hussein's iraq doesn't exist in libya. i can't predict what's going to happen. but i can say that people have tried to work through to minimize the potential, the risks that you described. >> finalal, sir, are you confident that these new leaders of libya won't form an alliance with al qaeda or other enemy anniversary the united states? >> the question of the islamic rule in libya is one that lat
7:09 am
lots of people have been looking at, lots of people have been looking at and discussing. the overwhelming vision that we're hearing from people across libya, civil society, from tribal leaders is that they want a libya that's moderate, secular, thahais unified and independent. libyans control be libyans' future to ensure a moderate secular libya is the one that emerges from 42 years of gadhafi's tyranny. >> thank you very much for your time this morning. >> thank you for inviting me. >> to get a sense of the kind of sweep of change over the last year, i want to put up a picture right here. you see there, hosni mubarak gadhafi, taken a year ago, all of those leaders for 30 years, all of those leaders now out of power or on the edge of being out of power.
7:10 am
bashar assad of syria facing calls from president obama and all world leaders over the weekend to relinquish power but he said yesterday that he's not going anywhere. >> you could see gadhafi standing there, such confidence but as you said sweeping change. >> all right, george, back here at home now, the latest on the hurricane irene, reaching hurricane strength early this morning slamming puerto rico and heading towards u.s. sam champion is back and he's tracking the storm for us. good to see you again. >> hey, robin. good morning. ninth named storm of the season. first hurricane of the season. when we show you this, you'll see exactly why it's strengthening. it's well formed and there is nothing between it and a good, strong hurricane headed toward the u.s. right now the center is right over puerto rico. we've got 2 to 4 inches. we think it will be 7 to 14. here's the path it laid out. as a category 1 has nothing but warm water and no shear to it, nothing pushing this storm around. all other storms have had a
7:11 am
problem developing. this won't. it'll actually strengthen a lot. the only problem it may encounter is right around haiti where the mountains w wl tear it up just a little bit over the next 24, 36 hours but then all warm water to take it up to the coast of florida. we can't tell you where exactly in florida to watch from the tip all the way to the carolinas should be watching the storm carefully. >> welcome back sam. we turn now to those three air show tragedies over the weekend. three killed in three separate accidents. barbara pinto, this video is so disturbing to see and so many questions about the safety of these shows. >> reporter: there are, george. it's been a terrible and tragic weekend. these air shows are incredibly popular, 12 million people go to them every year, children and families.. they come for the drama and the thrill. in the past two days, the string of three deadly accidents. it was a stunt without a safety

7:32 am
since her august 2nd disappearance, her companion gary giordano seen here in this abc news video, in shackles hasn't budged from his story they were snorkeling. quoting that he was too busy saving himself to look back for her. but an eyewitness has come forward with a different account. saying that he was out fishing. at 4:00 p.m. that he saw gardner and giordano walking along this jetty, after they left this restaurant. new witness claimed that the two never even got into the water. short time later drove away in this rental. at first, giordano considered him a bereaved boyfriend. then arrested him on august 5th.
7:33 am
>> if this story is accurate and correct as to the locations of both mr. giordano and ms. gardner, another piece of evidence that's inconsistent with his story. >> reporter: every day he's been take on the law enforcement office where he's grilled for hours. always with the same answers. >> he says that he's already answered that which makes it hard. >> reporter: now froro what investigators have managed to gather. that he tried to collect on an insurance policy, eir search through this waste land won't be for a living gardner but likely, george, for her remains. let's get more from our gma legal analyly dan abrams. how critical is this piece?
7:34 am
>> he tied himself to this story that they went to snorkeling. if he said that i don't know what happened to her, she disappeared. he's put himself in a particular place at a particular time and every witness and piece of evidence that they can find that undermines that becomes significant. >> if they can disprove the snorkeling is that enough to arrest him? >> it's probably enough if they can make it clear that his story isn't true. >> of course, right now, investigators will be looking hard at the background of this eyewitness? zblut sli. any high-profile case wherever it is, if someone comes forward in the midst of an investigation, people come forward with a new piece of evidence or information,
7:35 am
authorities have to spend time to make sure they're credible. >> meantime, the search is beginning this morning, it's been three weeks. >> the search was based on his story, his account on where they supposedly went snorkeling. if you discount that story and you start from scratch, let's assume everything that he's told us isn't true, now where do you look? now they're looking at different places on the island. >> he can be charged even if they don't find a body? >> yes, it's tough. it's tougher to charge when you don't have a body. we have seen cases like that here in the united states where people have been chahaed without a body. it will depend on what he says. it's other witnesses who saw him, particularly that

7:38 am
>> reporter: their elaborate plot was revealed in a string of text messages between stephen and parvaiz. the day before the shooting, she worked out logistics and police response time. i'm driving to the nearest precinct to judge their driving time. within hours of the murder, he sent one final text from his sister in law's home where the hit would take place. delete all messages from the phone. but there's one more message, a haunting text from noorani herself. she told her brother, someday you will find me dead but it's because of kashi, he wants me dead.
