at 7:00 a.m. local time a team of attackers armed with guns and grenades reportedly used a vehicle to smash through security barriers at the radisson blu and shot at guards, stormed the hotel, 140 guests and 13 staff remain hostages at this hour. >> you can hear gunshots. >> some of the funmen spoke english. a witness also told him that the attackers released those who could recite versus from the koran. automatic weapon fire heard in and around the property. >> just unbelievable. never seen something like this. just like a dream. like a nightmare. i mean it's unbelievable. unbelievable. >> a spokesperson for the u.n. confirmed this week a big
delegation for the peace process was at the hotel. a chinese news agency also confirmed several chinese nationals are guests. malien showeders have surrounded the hotel. security in mali has become increasing concern. >> this attack this is morning i think it is important to know they occurred in the international section of the city if you will and specifically targeted the hotel which many international business travelers and others stay. so i think it's not an accident that the hotel that is largely occupied by non-maliens was the target of the attack this morning. >> and there were about 25 u.s. military personnel in mali. they are helping first responders on an informal basis and no request for u.s. military assistance.
robin and george. >> very flew you had situation. >> we have on the phone right now olivier salgado from the u.n. chief of communications. there were unconfirmed rereports people were reciting pieces of the koran. >> that's information i don't have right now. what i know is three people with ak-47 around 7:00 a.m. this morning and of course immediately the forces from mali were deployed around the hotel and it's been two years that the united nation is supporting mali as you know. and of course, we have have quick reaction force plus many other means in case of emergency. this is where we are. but that's an ongoing situation
as we speak. >> so you have the u.n. peacekeeping forces joining the mali military? >> yes, we are coordinating our efforts as we do, it's been two years that we are doing that and, of course, this morning we are -- have been on the ground. >> we just got some images showing the military appearing to go into the hotel. do you have anything more on that, whether those forces have, indeed, gone into the hotel to go after the gunmen? >> yes, that -- but it's happening as we speak, so i don't have many more details. what i know is that around 20 hostages and maybe more were freed and maybe the situation is currently over. i need to check that and it's an evolving situation. >> so, to be clear, we started out with 140 guests in the hotel, 30 employees of the hotel. that's 170 hostages in total but you believe 20 were released
including 3 u.n. personnel and that some sort of military operation is going on right now? >> that's correct and you have to bear in mind that it's a very popular hotel in bamako and many westerners are going over there. >> mr. salgado, thanks for your time. >> we bring in abc news brian ross. brian there are groups in this country with ties to isis. >> one group just declared allegiance to isis and there are no claims of responsibility. neither group has a common enemy in the west and in france. >> all right. brian is going to come back in just a minute. the hotel siege is the fourth major terror attack in just the past three weeks it started with the russian jet bombing on halloween.
followed by twin suicide bombings in beirut and the paris attack, of course, last week. one week ago today. abc's matt gutman is on the scene of that raid outside paris for us. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we're learning just now a third body was found inside that building. now, police are still going through it. you can see that white forensics tent down the street and police said they put so much firepower into the building the only way to identify the suspected assailants inside is from dna. this morning, investigators scrambling to identify that unknown body. apparently killed in wednesday's massive siege here. gunfire blasting for hours and debris spewing out of that apartment building. as europe's first female suicide bomber detonated her device. overnight, abc news obtaining this exclusive video of 27-year-old hasna aitboulahcen's mother and brother being loaded into a police cruiser. the target of the raids, the alleged mastermind of the paris attacks, abdelhamid abaaoud. cordoning off the suburb over
800 anti-terror forces firing 5,000 bullets. abaaoud killed in that shoot-out but not before planning the paris attacks including the shooting of this restaurant. remnants of that nightmare frozen in time. glasses still filled with drinks leftover pizza on plates. tables and chairs turned upside down. this video shows this man, ralph, dashed through the door and hurled himself on the floor. at first he thought he was caught in a gang war. >> you basically bumped the door and dove. was he still firing at you? >> yes, he was firing at me. >> did you hear the bullets coming past? >> i heard the bullets and i hear the -- i saw -- i just saw that's -- other things. >> reporter: his friend was injured seen holding her arm and protected by that bartender. the shooter seen in that video believed to be salah abdeslam,
the attacker that authorities across europe are still searching for this morning. now, salah abdeslam, a french national, is still the only attacker from friday night who has not been accounted for and police certainly hope that his is the body still in that building. robin. >> all right, thank you. >> we have brian ross here again and learning more about this female suicide bomber, the first in europe. >> a terror threat unlike any europe or the u.s. has seen before. it's the ultimate stealth weapon for isis. her friends say 26-year-old hasna aitboulahcen led a life of drugs, alcohol and sex. until she found religion and then isis. this week she was caught up in the police raid that would kill the mastermind of the paris attacks, her cousin. >> where is your boyfriend? >> he's not my boyfriend. >> where is he? >> he's not my boyfriend. >> reporter: and then the blast. as she detonated what authorities say was a suicide vest.
>> the fact that isis now has the first woman suicide bomber in europe's history tells us that isis is willing to break any norm of war, any threshold of war in order to kill. >> reporter: the isis bomber comes from a town outside of paris where her mother and a brother were taken into custody by police thursday. before becoming devout she was known for wearing a big straw cowboy hat with lots of men and drugs in her life a common pattern according to experts. >> they live this very licentious lifestyle and when they become a jihadi they completely reinvent themselves. >> reporter: female suicide bombers young and attractive first emerged 30 years ago in lebanon and have since been used by a number of terror groups including the russians for a series of deadly attacks. >> i wouldn't be surprised to see more female suicide bombers from isis, a female suicide bomber is like a stealth precision weapon.
>> and this is a major change in strategy. how does isis justify it? they didn't allow it before? >> in the last few weeks they posted on internal chat rooms a justification for women. they're still not allowed to go to battle or be martyrs but if your family is threatened you may use a suicide vest. this is justification. >> is there a tactical reason for using them. >> they often don't fit the profile and are often told to wear skimpy clothing to distract security people who may not think they have a bomb. they have brassiere bombs and prosthesis to look pregnant where they pack bombs in them. isis releasing its third video since the attacks, this one threatening to turn the white house blank with fire and the fbi director and attorney general holding a rare briefing on it. pierre was there. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. attorney general lynch called this a challenging moment. the fbi director said there are more than 900 terror
investigations under way with a small group that's getting an intense amount of attention. the fbi's identified dozens of suspected islamic radicals believed to be at high risk of trying to conduct copycat attacks like those in france. those suspects have been radicalized through an ongoing isis social media campaign which reaches out to them every day. fbi director james comey described the threat this way. >> the threat here focuses primarily on troubled souls in america who are being inspired or enabled online to do something violent for isil. together we are watching people of concern. we will keep watching them, and if we see something we'll work to disrupt it. >> reporter: robin and george there's a specific number of people, several dozen getting 24-hour surveillance covered as the fbi director said like a blanket. >> well, pierre, those isis videos targeting new york and now washington, what are officials saying about these particular threats? >> reporter: robin, top law enforcement officials say
they've continued to identify no credible plots tied to those video and say they're engaging in a propaganda war to create fear in the wake of the paris attacks. the fbi director and a.g. are aware of the current threats and the holiday season and unusual meeting trying to help americans understand the nature of the threat and reassure the country at the same time. the director said he did not want americans to have disabling fears but turn their concerns into healthy awareness. >> we have to keep that in mind with the holidays. >> there's a big question about whether syrian refugees add to that threat and now the big defeat for president obama in his big to keep america open to syrian refugees. they want to pass a bill to suspend the program until a. tougher screening process is put in place and there were enough to override the president's promised veto. jon karl has the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: this was a major rebuke for the president after days of making the case for his plan to bring in for syrian
refugees, democrats and republicans in the house voted to put the program on hold. in the end, it wasn't even close. >> the yeas are 289 and the nay is are 137. the bill is passed. >> reporter: it says no syrian or iraqi refugee can come into the united states until high-level u.s. officials certify that he or she is not a threat. 47 democrats joined republicans in voting yes. more than enough to override a presidential veto. >> this is urgent. we cannot and should not wait to act. not when our national security is at stake. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry said there is no reason to fear syrian refugees. >> it's inappropriate for america of all countries in the world to panic and to somehow turn our backs on our fundamental values. >> reporter: take a look at what voters say is their top issue for the 2016 campaign.
more name isis than any other issue by far and terrorism is tied for second. stoking more fear, news that two syrian families including four young children showed up at a u.s. border crossing in texas seeking asylum. that prompted this from donald trump via instagram. >> they're going to be pouring in. we don't know who they are. could be isis. >> reporter: fellow republican front-runner ben carson compared screening refugees to protecting children from rabid dogs. >> if there's a rabid dog running around your neighborhood, you probably are not going to assume something good about that dog. and you're probably going to put your children out of the way. doesn't mean that you hate all dogs by any stretch of the imagination. >> reporter: hillary clinton accused republicans of violating fundamental american values. >> discriminating against muslims, slamming the door on
every syrian refugee, that is just not who we are. >> reporter: donald trump has gone so far as to propose creating a national database of muslims in the united states. but, george and robin, the president has a lot of work here to convince the american people in a recent poll only 28% favored going forward with the refugee program as he has outlined it. >> and you've got 31 states now saying they won't welcome the refugees. this is going to be a tough fight. >> thank you very much. going to remain a hot debate. >> amy is here were the top stories. the setback for the president. this one for obamacare. >> we begin with the nation's largest health insurer saying they may pull out. united health blames low enrollment and high fees. if it drops millions of people left scrambling for low cost insurance. premiums could rise by 15% next year. a massachusetts teenager is among five killed in terror
attacks in israel. police say this man died when a palestinian man opened fire and rammed a vehicle into a group of pedestrians there. a river rescue in north carolina. a man grabbing a kayaker who had fallen out of his boat during a race. both member were then pulled to safety. and finally talk about a girl's best friend. take a look at this diamond that was just uncovered. it's believed to be the second largest ever found. it is 1,111 carats. nearly the size of a baseball. it could be worth, robin, get this, up to $200 million. >> amy, thank you. a major winter storm threatening to make a mess of early thanksgiving travel. that story for you in 30 seconds.
we're back at 7:18 with millions of americans on alert for the first winter storm of the season. just as so many of us begin to fly and hit the road for thanksgiving, ginger, you have more. >> hit the road and the road looks like this in st. cloud, minnesota. that blowing snow, a separate system. we're now watching this new one moving through nebraska, parts of south dakota right now. i think the heaviest winter storm warning from des moines to chicago, we time it out for you, tonight, it starts in central iowa, moves into chicago late tonight through the day tomorrow. it's all throughout michigan including detroit. so that's the timing. how much falls, a quick look at it for you. the heaviest away from that

>> well, when you see him away from the, you know, i'm the greatest and the best, he -- the kids say -- the four older children whom we talked to, as well, he is a very devoted father, that even though he is away a lot he knows everything that's going on with them including the daughter tiffany who we haven't seen that much. she is away at university. the daughter by marla maples. you can't get them to say anything bad about him. i tried but they really are extremely devoted and it's not all campaign talk. maybe it is, maybe i was just taken in but i was. >> we heard from melania. we have not heard from her until now? >> she says she wants to stay home with their son and that's why she's not on the campaign trail. if a man said this i had a kill him but maybe because she is so beautiful we don't expect her to be as smart as she is. >> barbara, you --
>> i take it all back. >> okay, here is some of your exclusive conversation at home with the trumps. >> mrs. trump, it is a pleasure to see you. and we don't see you that often. you're not on the campaign trail. how do you feel about campaigning. >> well, it's my choice not to be there. i support my husband 100%. but we have a 9-year-old son together. baron and i'm raising him and this is the age he needs a parent at home. >> were you involved in the decision of your husband to become president? >> we discuss a lot, yes, and i encouraged him. >> you did? you encouraged him. >> i know what he will do and what he can do for america. he loves the american people and he wants to help them. >> is yours a marriage of equals? >> i would say, yes. >> i would say no, no, i think she's far greater than the 50%. no, we have a very, very pretty much equal relationship, wouldn't you say? >> yes.
>> do you give your husband any advice on the debates? >> we discuss, i tell him my opinions. >> give me an example of a piece of advice that you've given your husband that he has taken? >> i will keep it private. >> well, she's told me -- i can tell you. she's told me a couple times during the debate she was happy with my performance if you want to call it a performance but she said you could tone it down a little bit on occasion. which i understand. >> when he's criticized, does it bother you? >> it's unpleasant but i know i can handle it. >> biggest criticism that's untrue that we can clear up is there any? >> i would say that he's nasty. he's not. and he has a big heart and very warm heart. you see what he is on the campaign trail all the time and on television, and i think, you know, america needs a strong
leader and tough leader and know what he's doing. >> barbara, including in your conversation global offense such as isis and donald trump talked to you about how he would defeat them. let's take a look at that now. >> if you had an opportunity to speak with the leader of isis, what would you say? >> these people are insane. these are insane people. >> so, you would not try -- >> normally i'm a big believer in talking. you can reason with most people. these are -- these are nuts. and it's got to be said and it's got to be stated and obama, i don't know what's with him. he doesn't talk about -- he doesn't talk about islamic terrorism or radical islamic terrorism. he won't even use the term. it's almost like he's defending them. >> if you were in the white house right now, what would you be saying? >> oh, i would be saying, let's go, folks and i would be getting other countries. i would say we're going to bomb the hell out of them. we are going to get them right now.
>> which we are bombing them and would love to hear more specifics but you did talk to the older children, as well. what did you learn about them? >> how devoted they are to him. i tried as i said to get them to say -- first of all, they're a very good-looking family as you can see but i tried to get them to say yeah but on the other hand but they are extremely, even the sons in particular fond of him. devoted to him so it's interesting to see what they're like when they're not just talking about isis or when do we get together. >> they do appear to be a very loving, close family. >> yes, they are and to see him in that role, to see him as a grandfather you not only will meet the children but the grandchildren. grandpa, grandpa. grandpa donald. >> perhaps we will learn a different side of him. barbara, always good to see you. >> oh, robin, happy to see you. >> have a pleasant and enjoyable weekend and you can see much

breaking up can be hard to do. >> yeah. >> according to facebook your ex-girlfriend becca just got engaged. >> reporter: and being bombarded on facebook by happy pictures, posts and news about a heartbreaking ex can just make it worse. >> i didn't want to see him. >> i just see thing on my ex's feeds that i just don't want to see. >> how it pops up on my feed is pretty weird. >> reporter: but this morning facebook is hoping to ease the pain launching a new set of tools dubbed take a break letting users wipe their romantic slate clean with just the push of a button. now when you change your status in a relationship to single, it'll automatically give you an option to remove your exes from your newsfeed. untag yourself from old photos and prevent your exes from seeing any of your updates all without having to unfriend or block them. in a blog post, the social media giant writing "we hope these tools will help people end relationships on facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control."
for some, it's a long overdue feature for the site which practically invented the relationship status. >> in the digital age what this is like is like getting rid of that box of stuff or hiding some of the photos. >> reporter: in "the social network" even the hollywood version of founder mark zuckerberg couldn't avoid his ex online. >> more than a billion people use facebook every day now and it's just -- it's kind of ingrained in like how we communicate. >> reporter: and as many prepare for the upcoming holiday season perhaps this tool can help x one person off their list. >> facebook is smart to roll it out now because we're actually kicking off breakup season. the weeks before thanksgiving is the time that a number of breakups happen. >> i didn't even know there was a breakup season. >> you don't want to bring anyone home to meet your mom or dad. >> i guess not. >> or you don't want to buy them a gift for the holidays. >> breakup season is upon us. >> absolutely. >> for now that ability to undo your tags, you have to do
one-on-one on your phone, it's only available on digital but you have to ask yourself, even though those memories are now bittersweet, do you really want them to disappear forever. >> you might change your mind so might want to put the pause on that. >> i'm glad i got out of this dating game before social media. >> it's complicated. thanks for unraveling it. juju, always good to see you. kate walsh is opening up for the first time about why she's never had children. the 48-year-old former "grey's anatomy" and "private practice" star revealing she went through early menopause. it's a problem that's more common than you may think and abc's linsey davis has her story. >> reporter: she played a smart and sultry surgeon on "grey's anatomy" and on "private practice" where she was known for her character's heartbreaking struggle with infertility. >> i'm so sorry. i know how much you wanted this. >> i just didn't realize i was out of time. >> reporter: and now kate walsh
is speaking out, the 48-year-old tv star revealing on the sirius xm radio show "conversations" that her character's onscreen problem is also one she has in real life. >> i don't have children. i'm not going to have kids. you know, i went through early menopause. >> you did? >> yeah. >> oh, wow. >> yeah, and my older sister called and she's like, you should go and get yourself checked because i'm going through menopause early and i'm like, you're just scaring me and then i went -- yeah, they're like, you have one egg. it was bleak. >> reporter: on average, it occurs around 51 years old but 1 in every 100 women between the ages of 30 and 39 are affected by what's known as premature menopause, the loss of ovarian function. >> it's not clear why this happens to certain women. a woman should be concerned if they become irregular particularly if they've had regular periods in the past. a woman should go through her lifestyle and certain risk factors with her health provider to maximize her fertility capabilities. >> reporter: walsh, who has
spoken out about wanting to have children says her hopes of getting pregnant are dashed but when it comes to life, she says she has no regrets. >> i think it's a bit of a myth and that it's this huge pressure. we're like, wait a minute. am i less than if i'm not a mother. if i'm not like a rock star in my career? i've always felt as much as i've been sort of at times in my life indecisive, i go for what i want, and i embrace what's in front of me. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> all right. joining us now is dr. jennifer ashton. she joins us live at our l.a. bureau. this is your area of expertise, jen. so, what do you make of kate's revelation? >> well, first of all, if that's what menopause looks like, sign me up, and for a shoutout to all the millions of women who go through menopause and their story doesn't make national news, but, again, to clarify, early menopause is menopause that occurs at the age of 40 or earlier. most women will go through menopause between 45 and 55, so
that's the average range. it's going to differ woman to woman, though. >> you said early menopause isn't even really a medical term. you can -- it's premenopause. what are the causes of it? >> premature menopause, so we don't totally understand but we know that things like smoking, very, very bad for your ovaries as it is for the rest of your body, certain chemotherapies, certain types of chromosomal abnormalities associated. they're all associated with early or premature menopause and we don't know how the environment affects it but certainly family history plays a role, so something your mother, your sister goes through, it increases your chance that it will happen around the same time. >> when you said chemotherapy, amy and i both nodded along that's what happened for both of us at an early age, so we also heard in the radio interview with kate walsh that she was referring to the pill that she thought that was a contributing factor. could that be? is that true? >> absolutely not. so, there are so many myths about the birth control pill, and we really need to change that. taking birth control pills for
years is not associated with premature menopause, and there's no maximum amount of time that a woman can take the pill, and we have to remember the silver lining with both early menopause or taking birth control pills, a dramatic reduction in the risk of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer, so you always have to look at both sides. >> absolutely. all right, jen, have a good time there in l.a. thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks. >> and she will be taking your questions on twitter throughout the morning. tweet her @drjashton. now outside to george. >> that's right, i'm here with barbara corcoran. we've got three entrepreneurs getting ready for their first test, and, barbara, you've been doing interesting stuff on "shark tank" recently and you put a big stake in a beauty and bath company. >> that was savvy naturals and the reason i decided to buy that particular stake in their business is i thought they would give me my money back. that's all i care about. >> how do you decide how much? how big a play to make? >> it's entirely dependent upon
how confident i am in that individual. and if you meet these people, you would just say, you know, i'm going to make a fortune and blind faith after that. >> up against the clock. the quickest pitch you've ever gotten? >> the quickest pitch to me, i was a waitress at a diner and my soon-to-be boyfriend walked in and said to me, you'd be great at real estate sales and gave me $1,000 to start the corcoran group and that's where i made my fortune. at the diner. >> ready to go here? >> sure am. >> entrepreneurs right now, entering shark stadium, mike baxter, inventor of the popcorn ball, rita floyd, go investor of flat box and ellery mulock of whisker dam. i didn't know there was a big problem or threat of foamy beverages in your beards but i guess there is. you know the drill. you'll write down how long it's going to take you to pitch barbara. the two lowest get their chance. let's see what you got. mike. >> i need six seconds to sell a shark.
>> wow! >> rita. >> i need five seconds. >> whoa. there we go. >> and ellery. >> i need five seconds to sell a shark. >> we got a tie right now. mike, i'm sorry. you're not going to do it this week but you're get another chance in a couple of weeks to come back. >> oh. >> so let's get ready to go right now, and our first pitch is going to be from rita. let's put five seconds back up on the clock. rita, are you ready to go? >> yes. >> sell a shark. >> flatbox, a machine washable lunch box that converts into a placemat. >> got it done in five seconds right there. >> exactly. >> okay. ellery, are you ready? >> i'm ready. >> let's put five seconds up on the clock. >> don't be that guy with the soggy 'stache, place a whisker dam on your glass to protect your 'stache and enjoy. >> wow! [ cheers and applause ] >> crazy. >> barbara, what do you think? >> rita, you've got a great
product. the problem with it, i think, unless you are standing there over your kid i'm not sure they're going to use it and be different from the kids at the cafeteria. sorry, rita. >> oh. >> so the winner is ellery. >> i'm not so sure. i'm just giving -- i might come back and pick you, but i can't resist a guy with a big hairy beard like that, ellery, and i think that's a really well-needed product. so my vote is for ellery. [ cheers and applause ] >> ellery, the winner of the contest. he's got it right there. i did not know that was a need but, look, you see he's proven it right there. ellery, congratulations. rita, thanks for coming in, and, of course, "shark tank" will be on tonight at 9:00, 8:00 central. barbara, thanks for coming in. >> great job, guys. >> i like the beard, ellery. it looks good.
