morning" and happy independence day. charlie, gayle and erica are off. >> in egypt things are not looking good. >> egypt is weaking up to a new and uncertain era after yesterday's military-led coup and already this morning an interim president has been sworn in. >> president muhammed morsi was ousted after ignoring millions of protesters and the army's demand for change. clars a ward is watching the dramatic turn of events in cairo and she joins us from above tahrir square. >> reporter: what a difference a day makes. today egypt has a new president and a former president, egypt's first democratically elected morsi is under house arrest. some of the people behind me are celebrate ppg they're saying this is a triumph of the will of the people while others are decrying this as a coup and the end of egypt's short-lived
7:04 am
experiment with democracy. a new dawn in egypt's political history. planes flew over tahrir square billowing the colors of the egyptian flag celebrating the ousting of mohammed morsi. already this morning former chief justice mansour was sworn in as interim president. he will serve as president until new presidential elections can be held. as the military's announcement spread through the square last night the crowd roared with excitement. fireworks and confetti exploded across the night sky as the protesters celebrated their victory against morsi who they hold responsible for egypt's social and economic wars. >> it is a revolution and the people that died have not died in vain. they fought for freedom. >> i feel proud, happy, relieved that egypt has changed the
7:05 am
fascist to a multicultural regime and hopefully a democratic one. >> not everyone is celebrating. the crowd booed when they heard the military's statements. they chanted down with the military regime. ahead of the announcement, troops and armored vehicles surrounded pro-morsi rallies and they remain positioned in anticipated flash points as the fear of further violent clashes here still lingers. as i mentioned before, the former president morsi is now under house arrest although muslim brotherhood leaders have been rounded up and muslim brotherhood television stations have been shut down. the army really clamping down here. they don't want to allow the islamists to take to the airwaves and encite their supporters to rebel against this coup. >> clarissa, where does egypt go from here at this point? i mean, who is really ready to lead the country now? >> reporter: well, that's the
7:06 am
real question, anthony. the people here who are celebrating behind me come from all different walks of life and all different political persuasions. they don't seem to have a unified vision for who the next leader of the country should be. the attitude seems to be like getting rid of morsi was a priority and finding a new leader. that's tomorrow's problem. >> clarissa ward in cairo. thanks. president obama is urging the egyptian military to hand power back to the people, but he stopped short of calling their takeover a coup. in a carefully worded statement the president said the u.s. is deeply concerned about the situation. he's encouraging the military to, quote, move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government. administration officials tell cbs news the president does not want to be seen as backing a military coup. the white house could use its $1 billion in egyptian aid as a bargaining chip. and arizona senator john
7:07 am
mccain says this morning he has great concern about the egyptian revolution. he and south carolina senator lindsay graham are in afghanistan on a surprise visit with troops in kabul. mccain is calling for a quick transition to free elections in egypt. >> i believe that the defense minister and the military has to show us and the world that they are making a rapid transition back to democracy and that will be, i think, an indicator to the level of support that we would provide to egypt. >> senator graham says morsi failed to reform the government, but graham also says the military takeover is not the way to choose a successor. hundred of firefighters battling the deadly flames in arizona paused wednesday. they stopped to watch a procession of vehicles. they were used by the 19 hotshots who were killed sunday after being trapped in the firestorm. carter evans is in prescott,
7:08 am
arizona. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning and good morning to our viewers here in the west. wednesday's somber motorcade came with some much-needed good news. the yarnell fire is now 45% contained, but there is still plenty of sorrow and now concern that the death toll could rise. we got our first look inside the burn zone wednesday. a survey of landscape that burned so fast on sunday it raced across four miles in just 20 minutes, roughly the time covered by this time lapse video. >> what made this fire really unique is the speed. i mean, it had heavy brush fuels dry and with the wind with, and what made it even more challenging is the wind shift. >> reporter: fire officials say they always have residents who refuse to evacuate leaving them to fear worse news to come. >> over the next week that's what we'll be doing is going through the properties that have been affected by this fire just look for victims.
7:09 am
we hope we don't find any. >> reporter: sifting through the aftermath is proving as challenging as sunday's initial response. weir learning that heavy smoke and high winds prevented a rescue helicopter from responding immediately to distress calls from the granite mountain hotshot team. by the time they arrived, 19 firefighters were dead despite having deployed their fire shelters. >> i've had to deploy our fire shelters twice in my life. >> he started his career as a hotshot and lived through an experience he calls a firefighter's last line of defense. >> it's undoubtedly a scary, difficult situation and we were calling out to each other constantly to let each other know we were all right. >> reporter: sounds like a terrifying situation. >> it's a difficult situation and i can't wish it upon anybody and i can't express what these firefighters went through and the conditions they endured. >> reporter: the members of the granite mountain hotshot team
7:10 am
will be together on sunday and that's when their bodies will be transported in a motorcade of 19 hearses down here to prescott where there will be a memorial service held on tuesday. anthony and nancy? >> carter evan, thank you. a fallen tree killed a summer camp worker near yosemite national park. the victim is 21-year-old anais riddenberg. officials say fourth adult staffers were hurt yesterday when the oak tree came down near a dining hall. no children were injured. prosecutors in the murder trial of george zimmerman may have had their most important day yet. last year the man who shot and killed trayvon martin said he did not know about florida's stand your ground law. yesterday a former college professor testified zimmerman got an a in his criminal justice class that included talk of self-defense and stand your ground. >> you know, with florida and
7:11 am
other states they have what's called the stand your ground law which evolved from the doctrine through case law. >> and did you cover that specifically? >> yes. >> did you discuss specifically self-defense and stand your ground laws in the connection of violent crimes such as murder? >> yes. >> cbs news legal analyst jack ford is watching the case. jack, good morning. >> anthony, good morning to you. >> how significant is the professor's testimony, do you think? >> it could be very important and here's why. at its core this case is about george zimmerman's credibility. usually a defendant has no obligation to prove anything unless you come forward with self-defense and then there is some requirement of some degree of proof. accept the prosecution's version that george zimmerman was the instigator, you can't rely on
7:12 am
self-defense. you can't say i'm self-defense and pull out a gun and blow the guy away. if trayvon martin was the instigator and he had a reasonable fear for his safety then it could work. credibility is so important and a witness who was not on anybody's radar beforehand. george zimmerman said in an interview, i didn't know anything about stand your ground defense until after this happened and this witness comes forward and says that's not true, he did know something about it. the prosecution said to juror, you can't believe it. >> jurors are told by judges that they find a witness didn't tell the truth about something they can choose to disregard anything that witness says if they want to. didn't tell the truth about one thing, but we still believe him about anything else. so this could be a very important witness for the prosecution depending upon how the jury views it. >> we also got key dna evidence yesterday. >> this case as opposed to so many other murder cases is not
7:13 am
about forensics, is not about dna. we know what happened in terms of how the death happened. what we don't know is who started this fight. the dna evidence here, i think it is important for the prosecution because it's kind of window dressing, the csi effect and jurors now expect to see some of it and in some ways it gives again to the credibility because george zimmerman has said that trayvon martin was reaching for my gun. i got it first and had to use it, although one of his friends said he told him trayvon martin grabbed the gun. this evidence saying there was no dna of trayvon martin on the gun again goes to the credibility of george zimmerman and that's the core here. ultimately what is the jury going to think? >> one other thing the court ruled is they can go more into the past of zimmerman including that he talked about the fact that he applied to be a police officer. >> the case is tried on those facts alone you can't go into other things before hand, but here the prosecution's theory is
7:14 am
george zimmerman was a wanna be cop and the prosecution is saying that's his motivation for initiating this conflict here with trayvon martin and it could be something helpful to the prosecution. >> happy fourth. >> good to see you. >> we have new details this morning about the so-called flop house rented by former new england patriot's tight end aaron hernandez. why police say evidence inside his secret condo could help convict hernandez of first-degree murder. >> aaron hernandez was forced to leave his upscale massachusetts mansion for a 7 x 10 foot jail cell with a single bunk. it turns out the former nfl player also kept another home. a two bedroom apartment where police say they found a stash of evidence that could be key to their case against him. >> not only is it damaging, but a reasonable prosecutor would think they'd died and gone to heaven. >> reporter: court documents obtained by cbs news contain a
7:15 am
laundry list of evidence in the apartment including nearly a dozen boxes of ammunition, among them .45 caliber bullet, the same kind that killed 27-year-old odin lloyd. investigators found a white sweatshirt consistent in color and type with the type hernandez is observed to be wearing the night of the homicide. they believe it could link him to the scene of the crime. investigators discovered the so-called flop house on a tip from carlos ortiz who prosecutors say was with the former patriots tight end the night of the murder. ortiz is facing a weapons charge and legal observers say it doesn't appear he'll try to protect hernandez. >> mr. ortiz has made a very conscious decision and to that extent he'll give them anything he has. >> reporter: hernandez is expected back in court later this month. for cbs this morning elaine quijano, new york. new accusations this morning from a world leader over the man

hunt for nsa leaker edward snowden. the president of bolivia is lashing out at the u.s. for diverting his flight home from moscow. charlie d'agata is in london. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, anthony. the snowden saga continues to unfold on a global scale. he may be stuck in moscow, but this chapter begins in south america where one very annoyed president returned home. president morales arrived to a hero's welcome after his flight from moscow when diverted to austria, he called it an open provocation toward an entire continent and he laid blame on american imperialism. this morning russia's foreign ministry issued criticizincritid demandzing answers over the allegations the u.s. has been spying them. that was leaked by snowden, too. president obama calls german chancellor angela merkel tol try to smooth things over pledging

that security leaders will soon meet to discuss the issue in further detail. as far as anyone's aware snowden is still holed up at an airport waiting fair country to grant him political asylum and a flight that might it willy get him there. anthony and nancy? >> thanks. a 16-year-old girl from new orleans and serve other people have been rescued off the waters of honduras. the coast guard found them adrift on the coast on the caribbean sea. a search began after they ran out of gas on saturday. >> aaa says gas prices have fallen for 21 straight days. that's good news for the more than $40 million travelers expected to go more than 50 miles this holiday weekend. the national average now stands at $3.48 a gallon. there is a bit less to celebrate when you compare it to last year's average of $3.33 a gallon. take a look that the, a 20-foot deep sink hole swallowed a moving car in toledo, ohio

7:50 am
list? >> we looked at, first of all, places that have a high percentage of retires already. places that have established themselves as hot spots where they're 65 or older. then we wanted to look at not just good places to retire but places where you can buy a house and it makes financial sense to do so. we looked at markets with strong appreciation, home price appreciation, and also a good return on rental investments. if you're going to buy a good rental property and retire in five years, ten years, 20 year, you can buy the home as an investment, rent it out and make money on the interim. >> you get three from florida and arizona, both places that were hit really hard in the recession price-wise schl there real value there now? >> there is. especially in florida. seven out of the top 15 we looked at were in florida and florida is still a market that's recovering and prices have just bottomed out and are on their
7:51 am
way up. arizona is ahead of the curve but both were hit by the housing crisis, the housing bubble, so price are off 30% to 50% from the peak. so even though they're heading back up in the markets, it's a great time to find a bargain, even if you're not retiring right away. >> i get why you have a lot of places that boast warm weather on the list but then you've got a place like douglasville, pennsylvania. what's that about? >> we looked at the day that. that was a praise that surprised us as well. strong appreciation. it has a high percentage of retirees. so it did make the list that surprised us. but we did include in there the average temperature. some of those cities like in pennsylvania, we looked at east hampton, new york. it actually made the list as well. the temperatures are a little lower so they may not be quite as appealing to retires.

8:04 am
coup. good morning to you and to anthony. >> what is clear from the president's statement and speaking with administration officials, is that they do not want to be seen as backing a military coup. that's why they stressed that egypt's future can only be determined by the egyptian people. the u.s. has close ties with the egyptian military. they asked president morsi and the administration will express the importance of calling elections soon. they also have to maintain stability. the u.s. has leverage. it supplies the egyptian military with over 1 billion dollars in aid every year. the white house is unlikely to cut it off. they will use it as a bargaining chip. congress can also cut the purse strings. keep in mind, egypt is in the throws of a deep economic crisis. they might cooperate. it isn't clear how much sway the u.s. will actually have with the egyptian public. america's reputation has taken a hit, specially there on the

life. i think this is so important that people would believe in it. and we had a great group to help us. >> colonel guenther, part of this was inspired because you were away. when your wife told you she had this idea, how far did you believe she was going to take it? >> knowing karen, i knew if it could go far, she was going to take it far, but i had no idea it was going to grow as large as it has or as quickly as it has. >> what's unique, you're not just helping military members with a one-time award of money or whatever they need. row really stay with them. >> we made that commitment early on that we would help at time of injury or illness and we would stay with them, remaining faithful for as long as they needed us. >> what kind of help are you talking about? you fill in the dwaps of what the government does. >> we do. we don't duplicate what the government does. we help where the government can't. it's a variety of needs from

bedside to one of my favorite new things that we're helping with are action track chairs. so if someone is missing two legs or paralyzed they can still get out and go fishing and play in the snow with their kids and live a great quality of life and that's what it's about. >> and people don't realize how costly it is for members who suffer injuries. you know, it's not just them but often their loved ones can't work for a time because they're helping them to convalesce. they need to change their homes and their transportation. there's so many needs. >> that's what we saw at the beginning and we keep evolving those needs. we have a lot of work to. do i'm hoping america continues to stay by us because what i thought was going to be a o one- or two-year decade, it's ongoing. >> you're not just helping the soldiers and the veterans, you're helping the families. >> we are. we're helping the spouses and
8:48 am
we're hosting a camp for children whose parents have been severely wounded. they're forgotten about. everyone's at the bedside in a crisis and the children become adults too soon sometimes, so we're doing this fantastic children's camp for the kids so they can be together and share stories and camaraderie. >> where have you raised most of the money? has it come from vanillas, corporations, and if people want to help, what can they do? >> most of the money comes from the average american, so $10 or $25. the last couple of years we've had some amazing large donors. bob and rene parsons. different groups have really understand what they were doing and they wanted to be a part of it and they helped us. it's going to be a challenge going forward some of if people of every income level, like i said, $5, $10, it all matters up to the corporate $50,000. they can go to our website.

your kpix five headlines bart and union officials are back at the negotia hi, everyone. good morning. 8:55. happy 4th of july. i'm frank mallicoat. we got your kpix 5 headlines on this holiday. bart and union officials expected back at the negotiating table at 11:00 to morning. there were hints of progress during a 10-hour session yesterday but both sides and the mediators are tight-lipped about how things are going. but getting back to the bargaining table on a holiday one would think is a good sign. we shall see. a discarded cigarette started an apartment fire in campbell last night. it was in an ashtray on a balcony but it set fire to the wall and flames spread to the attic. no injuries. san francisco police are warning dog owners in the twin peaks area to be extra cautious. two dogs got very sick after eating meatballs that were left out on crestline and burnett streets.
8:56 am
the meatballs have now been sent to uc-davis for testing. vets say if you think your dogs have been exposed, get them checked immediately. and the pressure is on 4th of july, how about that forecast, lawrence? you got to come through. >> a tough one especially with the low clouds and fog. we are going to see a little more of that along the coastline and the bay but today probably the last hot one outside. as we look from our new mount sutro cam just some monsoonal clouds sweeping in overhead and some of the clouds at the coastline. have some lightning strikes early this morning in parts of the north bay but those have moved off. looks like this afternoon again hot in the valleys. 101 degrees in livermore. 92 in vallejo. 90 in san jose. comfortable 73 in san francisco. this evening the clouds move back in along the coastline and inside the bay staying clear inland. much cooler tomorrow. we're going to check out your "timesaver traffic" coming up next. ,,,,,,,,,,,

8:58 am
good morning. even with bart still on strike, most other mass transit agencies are operating on a holiday or sunday schedule but ac transit is stepping up their transbay services between east bay and san francisco. and a quick look at the bay bridge toll plaza. we can finally say no delay. no metering lights. but parking meters are in force.
