we'll begin with this terrible story over the weekend. as you wake up in the west there is no school today at uc santa barbara. it is a day of mourning for the six students that were murdered by a disturbed young man. >> this morning we're getting a clearer picture of the killer and the gaps in the law that gave him time to plan the deadly rampage. danielle nottingham is outside the convenience store where the last student died. danielle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to our viewers here in the west. this tight-knit community is still grieving the loss of six students who were killed one of them inside here at this deli mart where a memorial continues to grow out front. another memorial is planned for today at uc santa barbara. two others took place last night. ♪ the pain from the rampage that took the lives of six students near uc santa barbara is also being felt in los angeles, 90
miles away. there were vigils monday night at sister uc campus ucla and westlake high school. veronika weiss graduated from west lake last year. her father is still in shock. >> we have gotten condolences from all over the country from people we haven't talked to in 30 years. >> elliott rodger here. >> reporter: police detailed the killing spree. it started by stabbing three men in his own apartment before driving to a sorority where he was denied entry, shot two women outside. then emptied his gun outside a nikonearby convenience store. you can see him in the red cap and white t-shirt in this surveillance video. he later used that shirt in a futile attempt to stop the
bleeding of chris michael he says he'll never forget what he saw elliot rodger do that night. >> he was almost smiling like he was happy about what was going on. it was very chilling. i'll remember that face for a long time. he was just letting everything go and hoping he hid everything in sight. >> rodger outlined his planned attack in a 137-page manifesto and a series of youtube videos. >> i'm still a virgin. it has been very torturous. >> reporter: in his manifesto he wrote about his hatred for women who spurned him and men who were popular for girls. lucky radley immediately became popular with the pretty girls of his grade. i hated him for hit. lucky radley was stunned to find out he was named in rodger's tirade. >> i never heard him talk. i've never heard him say more than two, three words. the first i'm hearing his talk was in the videos.
>> reporter: women around the world are turning this tragedy into a social movement. they're sharing their stories about sexual abuse and harassment on twitter through the hash tag #yesallwomen. it's now been tweeted 1.4 million times. >> all right, danielle thank you. people are cleaning up this morning after a powerful tornado tore through an oil worker's camp in north dakota. >> where do we go? we've got nowhere to go. >> monday's tornado injured nine people and destroyed at least eight trailers where oil drillers lived. one of the victims was critically hurt. witnesses say there was no time to take shelter. the disaster occurred in the northwest part of the state where a recent oil boom is drawing thousands looking for work. the search continues this morning for three men including a father and son missing after a massive mudslide in western colorado. the site is so unstable rescuers
cannot look from the ground. heavy rain and runoff apparently triggered sunday's slide. jeff todd of kcnc gives us a new look from the air at the miles of devastation. >> reporter: aerial search and rescue teams scoured the broken terrain monday hoping for any sign of life from the three missing men. officials say they were investigating a disruption to an irrigation water supply when the major landslide occurred. the surrounding area is still too dangerous, unstable and nearly unreachable for crews on the ground. stan hilkey is the mesa county sheriff. >> you can see just the massive amount of earth that is left there that could fall and then there's big cracks on the west side of it that could come down in that area. >> reporter: a mile wide at the crown and nearly three miles long, it's also estimated to be more than 200 feet deep. >> the slide came down with so much force and velocity that it came to a hill and went up and over a hill and then came back
down, a significant hill. so the power behind it was remarkable. >> reporter: hilkey sought the advice of the snohomish county washington,'s sheriff's department where a dudley mudslide claimed the lives of 40 people in march of this year. >> everybody on this mountain is praying for a miracle right now and we hope that they may be stranded somewhere or in such a way that you know they avoided it. >> reporter: scientists from the united states geological survey and the national weather service have been called in to help assess the stability of the site. search efforts will resume later this morning. for "cbs this morning," jeff todd, mesa county colorado. also in the west people are being kept out of about 100 homes near yosemite national park as a wildfire grows. the flames broke out yesterday in mariposa county california. they have already burned an area the size of 500 football fields. many vacationers were there for the three-day weekend. meanwhile they're hoping for rain in southern alaska today.
a wind-whipped fire has burned nearly 250 square miles. that wildfire is 30% contained. 45 pages of raw data released this morning suggest malaysia flight 370 ran out of fuel before crashing in the indian ocean. investigators believe the plane's last communication with a satellite was triggered when the plane's electrical systems were resetting after losing fuel. fuel.plane.thplane. of perth, australia. pro-russian rebels battled ukrainian troops overnight for control of a major airport in eastern ukraine. a government assault to stop the insurgents began monday. this morning russian president vladimir putin is calling for an immediate end to ukraine's military operation. charlie d'agata is in donetsk where rebel troops are suffering heavy losses. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. losses of 40 to 50 and counting. now, moments ago ukraine's
interior minister reported ukrainian forces have lost no troops, but we've heard gunfire and explosions overnight and this morning suggesting this fight isn't over yet. the bodies of separatist fighters arrived at the morgue this morning following gun battles that stretched throughout the day and into the night. separatist leader told us ukraine's new leadership is to blame for the bloodshed and vowed to strike back with equal force. the battle for control of this city's airport is the most high-profile attack pro-russian separatists have launched here so far and it was met with ukraine's biggest and most rapid response in months of fighting unleashing a series of air strikes, heavy weapons and a paratrooper assault. we watched aselicopter gunships scraped the woods where pro-russian gunmen had taken up positions. people scrambled for cover as the fighters fired back in every direction.
president-elect petro poroshenko now just two days on the job, has rejected talks with armed rebels he calls terrorists, instead saying it's time for an urgent crackdown that should take a matter of hours, not months. now, outside the hospital that separatist leader we spoke to said that they consider this an attack on their soil and in retaliation, they're going to take their fight to kiev. norah? >> charlie, thank you. a fiery argument is breaking out in washington over the va health care scandal. lawmakers are at odds with some of america's largest veterans groups. nancy cordes is on capitol hill where a key senate republican is accused of going too far. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and our viewers in the west. those veterans groups are not holding back accusing the senator of quote, a monumental cheap shot and disgusting ambush-style politics after he publicly questioned their motives. it was a coordinated assault from three of the nation's top
veterans groups. you clearly represent the worst of politics in this country, wrote the paralyzed veterans of america. your allegations are ugly and mean-spirited in every sense of the words, wrote the vfw. their fury stemmed from an open letter to veterans north carolina senator richard burr released on friday the start of memorial day weekend. in it he argued that groups like theirs were more interested in defending the status quo within va than in protecting the veterans they represent. >> what we've got is we've got a situation where nobody is looking at the realities. >> reporter: burr was angry that at a recent hearing about alleged secret waiting lists and delays at the va only one veterans group, the american legion, called for the resignation of va secretary eric shinseki. the rest pledged their support. >> secretary shinseki is dedicated to america's veterans more than ever. >> we fully stand behind secretary shinseki. >> reporter: burr says he stands
by his criticism of those groups despite the heat he's getting now, telling cbs news the reaction seems to prove my point. they are far more outraged by my words than they have been thus far by any of the unfolding va scandal or secretary shinseki's mismanagement of the agency. >> it became personal because of the timing of the letter. >> reporter: sherman gilums jr. says burr's letter struck a nerve. >> we're used to the politics. what we're not used to is for someone to define our motivations and reflect to the public in this sort of passive-aggressive way. he's writing the veterans but he's talking about veterans. we're all veterans at the end of the day. >> reporter: senator burr argues these groups are simply trying to curry favor with the va's top brass. they say it's naive to think that replacing one secretary will fix the problems at the va which they argue, anthony has been underfunded for years by
congress. >> nancy, thanks. president obama acknowledged the veterans hospital scandal as he honored the nation's fallen heroes. the president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier during a memorial day ceremony at arlington national cemetery. he said the va controversy must be resolved. >> as we've been reminded in recent days we must do more to keep faith with our veterans and their families and ensure that they get the care and benefits and opportunities that they have earned and that they deserve. these americans have done their duty. they ask nothing more than that our country does ours now and for decades to come. >> the president assigned deputy chief of staff rob nabors to lead the white house investigation. the head of nigeria's armed forces says this morning that he knows where an islamist terror group is holding hundreds of kidnapped school girls, but he also warns a rescue attempt could get the hostages killed. as debora patta reports,
officials are trying to defend their efforts against boko haram. >> reporter: good morning. the nigerian military has come under harsh criticism for its failure to rescue the over 200 girls. it's been six weeks now since they were kidnapped from their school where they were preparing to write their final exams. speaking off the cuff the country's chief of defense alex badeh told a crowd of demonstrators gathered to support the beleaguered military that they had located the girls. >> the good news is for the girls is we know where they are but cannot tell you. we cannot tell you. just leave us alone, we are working. we will get the girls back. >> reporter: but he warned that the use of force was a risk to the girls' lives. >> so nobody should come and say the nigerian military does not know what it is doing. we know what we are doing. we can't go and kill our girls in the effort to get them back. >> reporter: boko haram has stepped up its campaign of violence since the abductions.
in this past week alone, at least 200 people have been killed. in an interview last week charlie rose asked defense secretary chuck hagel if the u.s. would go and get the girls once their location had been established. >> we would go get them? >> we would do everything we could, as president obama has said, to facilitate helping the nigerians, as we are helping them locate them and then figuring out what's the quickest easiest, fastest way, lowest risk to get them out. >> reporter: if the nigerian military rules are forced then the only real option left is negotiations. but a source close to the secret talks between government and boko haram has told cbs news that there was a deal reached over the weekend to swap the girls for boko haram prisoners, but that this was stopped at the last minute by president goodluck jonathan. for cbs this morning. i'm debora patta, in capetown south africa. this morning a major figure in the computer hacking group anonymous faces the possibility of spending more than 25 years
in prison. but he will probably get a much lighter sentence today. prosecutors are asking for leniency because the hacker began working as an fbi insider. >> monsegur helped bring down the most wanted cyber criminal target and disrupted 300 cyber attacks. tim stevens is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is a really big story many people have not heard about. how helpful was he to the fbi? >> incredibly helpful. he was arrested in 2011 and the next day helped identify some of the major hackers they wanted to bring down. he had two foster children he wanted to protect and the fbi said we have enough to put you in jail today and he wanted to protect them so he immediately helped to bring in some of the co-founders of a hacking group that he helped co-found. >> so he's a founding member of this anti-government group and he goes a day later working for the government? >> he was still tweeting online
about how much he hated the government and how much he hated the fbi while he was actively working for the fbi. engaging online chats and helping to get more information about these hackers that they wanted to bring down. >> what was this group really all about? >> they said they were doing it for fun but they did get strong political leanings toward the end, attacking the fbi and cia, they attacked the senate website. they also attacked fox.com because of x factor and fun stuff like that. they also sent an e-mail to the british health society telling them they had a security vulnerability and telling them how to fix it. saying we don't want to attack you, we just want to help. >> the government is now saying his help has helped them disrupt as many as 300 cyber attacks? >> he was very helpful in bringing people to justice and preventing hacks and helping to fix websites and fix government agencies to prevent other hacks. he's been very helpful and they're trying to make the case he deserves a light sentence. >> what the government needs is someone to help with this expertise and inside knowledge.
>> there are plenty of hackers out there who were accused and spent time in jail and are now helping the government and other agencies be more secure. these are the guys who know these systems the best and they know the best way to secure them. >> tim stevens, thank you so much. >> thank you. it's 7:19. ahead on "cbs this morning" new revelations from hillary clinton about her new memoir and one thing she says you we're going to see mostly sunny skies but the winds will be picking up and that is going to help to cool down the temperatures. overlooking our mount vaca cam plenty of blue signs inland today. still some patchy fog coast tan lal inland. continues to increase as we head towards the afternoon along the coastline. highs will be in the 70s and 80s well inland a lot of 70s inside the bay and 60s along the coastline. next couple of days maybe a little bit warmer and cooling down for the weekend. this national weather report sponsored by claritin the number one doctor recommended

good tuesday morning, everyone, it is 7:26. i'm frank mallicoat. here's what's happening around the bay area today. a wildfire in mariposa county has forced dozens of evacuations in the sierra foothills. burned hundreds of acres and several buildings in the hunters' valley area. no reports of injuries so far. ceo is expected to plead not guilty today to felony hit and run charges. next door's ceo nirav tolia is accused o leaving the scene of a crash that injured a woman. and a stretch of i-280 in san francisco is back open now and it was shut down on thursday night between king and pennsylvania avenue for earthquake retrofit orange -- retrofit work. northbound lanes were closed over the fourth of july and labor day weekends to finish it
good morning, we still have the traffic alert in caster valley. or through the wide. it's really stacking up because of an accident and a big rig lost its load of construction equipment on northbound 238 approaching the east 14th street exit. you can see the delays beyond the caster valley wide now. in those westbound lanes. also remains really heavy on southbound 680 from pleasanton into the sue normal grade because of an earlier accident approaching highway 84 and the bay bridge the metering lights have been on now since 5:45 and they switched them on on the earlier side. things backed up quickly on the approaches, westbound 580 probably the worst approach jammed to 24. here's lawrence. winds picking up around the bay area going to be blustery in spots already seeing some of the gusts over 30 miles per hour. little hazy in the atmosphere. high pressure will move eastward now and that low squeezing in that will help to cool down the temperatures. 70s and 80s inland today and 70s inside the bay and 60s along the coastline. looks like even cooler for the weekend.
the obama administration will unveil a new climate proposal aimed and reducing carbon emissions. it would be flexible to help through cap and trade. coal burning power plants contribute to one-third of emissions emissions. last month, the government accountability office found the military's inventory system is outdated. they plan to destroy $1 billion worth of emissions though some are still usable.

as secretary of state. in an authors note the potential presidential candidate says the book will not engage in political finger pointing. >> while my views and experiences will be scrutinized by followers of washington's long running soap opera, who opposed whom who was up and who was down i didn't write this book for them. i wrote it for americans and people everywhere who are trying to make sense of this rapidly changing world of ours. who want to understand how leaders and nations can work together and why they sometimes collide. and how their decisions affect all out of lives. >> the memoir is published by a company owns by cbs. los angeles clippers owner faces a key deadline today. he is required to answer formal charges by the nba. the league says it is being damaged by sterling's conduct after his racist remarks. they meet a week from today to
decide on forcing a sale. ricky is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's at stake today? >> well today, in answering the allegations, he did what most lawyers would say to do. i didn't say it. i didn't cover it up. i didn't try to influence a witness. if he goes that way, he's going to dig himself in deeper. however, he would be smart or his lawyers would be wise to advise him, he needs to stake his intentions. is he going to go forward, move the team to his wife as is reported and get this team sold now? >> what do you make of the strategy that he is going to give it to shelly sterling his wire, she will okay the sale and they will move forward. >> moving forward and playing in the same sand box is a good idea. perhaps that way they can get agreement with the nba and adam silver about how to do this.
however, if he thinks just by shifting it to his wife who says well, i'm a minority interest holder i'm someone who is really not the same as donald sterling. if that's going to please the nba, they are wrong. ultimately, the name sterling is a name that the nba wants out of here. and out of here now. >> shelly sterling has taken inquiries from six potential buyers. is the nba going to let her control this sale? >> i would say the nba doesn't want her to control the sale but the nba doesn't want litigation either. if the nba can reach some kind of agreement with her that would have some binding authority to get this sold now, it would be very odd if you could get a team sold between today, may 27th and the time of this hearing on june 3. that's really fast. however, stranger things have happened. if she thinks she can wait for
the time that is right for her to get the money she wants to get, the nba is not going to allow that. so they really have to move very, very quickly. this is complex negotiation. >> at the same time they want a good price. >> yes they do. that's one of the things in everyone's favor. the nba want as good price because it sets the comparative value for all other teams. so, they don't want to force a sale that would push the price down. remember this, too. this is los angeles. this is hollywood. people want to buy this team. people all over the country like owning a sports franchise. i say, particularly in los angeles. let's not forget about the dodgers. frank mccourt was forced out of there. people said it would be a fire sale price. hardly. it went up up up and ultimately, the dodgers are doing very well. >> we are all watching. >> yes, we are. we'll see what happens the next time, june 3.
i bet i see you back here. >> thank you. >> thanks. pope francis is back at the vatican this morning. he wrapped up a visit to the middle east where he called for peace between israel and the palestinians. we report from pope's pilgrimage was a shining success. he made the biggest news on the way home. speaking to reporters, he said abusive children was comparable to holding a satanic mass and said there is zero tolerance. he would soon meet with victims of abuse and three priests are under investigation for alleged abuse. the 70-year-old's pilgrimage seemed to tire him. he said he would consider
following in the footsteps of benedict xvi who opened the door by retiring. only god knows if there will be others, but the door is open. one of the surprises was an invitation for the palestinian and israeli presidents to join him. the event is tentatively scheduled for next month. on the plane, he lowered expectations. they are coming just to pray he said, then everyone goes home. it was his very public and sincere prayers in places of religious significance made here. >> it's an attempt to reach out. ift's going to be applauded and appreciated by the israeli people. >> reporter: the pope's final mass of the trip where jesus held the last supper displeased orthodox jews who worship but
they let it go off in a dignified manner. the only ones not applauding are representatives of abuse victims. a nice bit of symbolism that is utterly meaningless. >> thank you, alan. this is fascinating to see what the pope did in israel. then, you know he spoke with reporters, again, on the back of the plane. add allen pointed out, three bishops are under investigation for sexual abuse. he's going to meet with victims next month. there's confusion on when it might happen. he also opened the door to other future popes suggesting he could also resign rather than die in office like benedict did. >> just the fact he's speaking out on issues most have been shying away from is nice to see. he's a different kind of man. >> long time coming. >> all right. ahead, what are the chances that gambling is good for presidential politics?

in las vegas today, a crucial meeting between lawmakers and gaming officials could help make presidential elections a different kind of prize. a nevada lawmaker wants to allow americans to gamble on the results. barry petersen looks at how politics might turn into a payday. >> reporter: in las vegas, it's legal to bet on this kind of
race, but not this kind. the race for the presidency. that could change if state senator has his way. >> you have been in vegas all your life? >> yep. >> reporter: he wants a law allowing them to make room for people who want to place on the top political job. >> especially like what we have in nevada. >> reporter: in the early 1900s, gambling on elections was illegal, but americans gambled outdoors to make their wagers. on wall street it was called the curve exchange. 1916, an estimated $160 million was bet on the election that woodrow wilson won. today, gambling on american elections is legal in great britain britain. close to $2 million was spent on the last election in this gaming establishment ladbrokes.

would flock to the casino. >> on election night, if you could bet, what would this place look like? >> i couldn't move. >> reporter: you'd have that many people? >> couldn't move. i would look like this talking to you. >> reporter: sooner or later, say confident supporters you can bet on it. for "cbs this morning," barry petersen, las vegas. >> that's an interesting argument for pushing up voter registration. if you can bet, many of you want to vote. >> he speaks with such confidence. >> let me tell you something, anybody that talks like that i'm listening. we're going to see mostly sunny skies but the winds will be picking up and that is going to help to cool down the temperatures. overlooking our mount vaca cam plenty of blue skies inland today. still some patchy coastal fog inland. the winds will be whipping, already seen gusts over 30 miles per hour. continues to increase as we head towards the afternoon along the coastline. highs will be in the 70s and

at the socioeconomic status of them and correlated that to cancer. well, across the board the cancer incidence is about the same. with but for 32 of the cancers there's a difference where some may be more prevalent in the poor and others in the richer community. it goes to behavior. it's not the that the environment causes cancer but it's the behavior of the people based on your socioeconomic status status. and it's something we need to pay attention to going forward. >> like what types of behavior, dr. agus compared to one community to the other? >> well if you look for example, in the lower socioeconomic status the poorer individuals, there's more cancers associated with certain viruses, hpv, hepatitis virus, more smoking. those cancers classically are more aggressive and deadly. you can see in the liver cancer graphic that we'll put up a much higher death rate where as in the richer communities a the lot of cancers that have it to do with oversurveillance that is we catch cancers that don't necessarily need to be treated. that's akin to to thyroid cancer
where many of those thyroid cancers will never cause a problem problem. so the difference between them. and in the richer communities there's a lot more screening. they catch colon cancer earlier because they have more colonoscopies and less in the poorer communities. >> so what does this data tell s in terms of treatment or teach us? >> it's a piece to the puzzle and we've done a number of the stories over the last year where there are certain correlation ss and each of them are a small piece. together the bigger picture, we can start to based on where you live based on your behavior, start to do a profile of prevention for you, whether increasing vaccination rates in an area or looking for 0 certain cancers, personalize how we do prevention. and this is some of the data that can help us start to do that. when we as a doctor see a patient we never look at socioeconomic status. now, while it's still controversial whether to look at it, we know it core relates to some cancers, and we have to pay
attention to it. >> do we need to do more in poorer communities? >> no question about it. many of these are preventible with vaccines, so we need to get the vaccine in there for 0 the hepatitis. we need to treat the hepatitis "c," the hpv vaccination in kids. we can eliminate a lot of these cancers. the so the key to cancer is prevention. >> all right, dr. david agus good information. thank you. and the white house says it's getting geeked out this morning. president obama is hosting the fourth annual white house science fair. this year the spotlight is on girls and women excelling in science, technology engineering and math or stem. the administration is recognizing 100 award winning students from 30 states and nancy cordes got the first look at some of their work. this is 0 our motion sensor and it detects rising water. and when it detects rising water these two bridge pieces raise up up. >> reporter: they call themselves the leg leg queps. this girl scout troop from

to go down there? >> i think the basic thing was that, you know this is the 70th anniversary. it is a very important anniversary. the youngest veterans who fought in that battle are, you know, in their late 80s, early 90s now. they are not going to be with us forever. this is a program for nova the science series for public television. we wanted to find a new way to do this to bring people into the excitement of this battle. so, we had this opportunity to go on this expedition and use the latest and greatest of sonar to find these and go down in submarines. >> you went with a veteran. >> that was the most touching to see them in their 80s and 90s to go with their family. can you share a story that stuck out to you? what it meant to them going
