7:07 am
open and having them back at work. >> reporter: but the violence took a toll on some businesses. 200 of them were lost many the riots, including these two stores which are now boarded up. after looters broke in last monday night our cameras caught them stealing goods and setting a car on fire. but on sunday a new kind of rally erupted in front of city hall with dozens of people dancing and celebrating all to prove a different point. >> everything you see on the news, that's not baltimore. >> take back baltimore! >> reporter: the weekend of peaceful protests started friday after baltimore state's attorney marilyn mosby charged six police officers in connection with freddie gray's death. >> we have probable cause to file criminal charges. >> reporter: reverend jamal bryant says his hometown is now on the path to change. >> freddie gray has pushed us over the cliff without a
7:08 am
parachute. now we can't go back. this is a full encompassing movement that is not one sided but is multidimensional and is going to take legs and feet and put on shoes and walk out of baltimore and find its crisscrossing the nation. >> the six accused officers are out on bail this morning. they are expected in court later on this month. the state of emergency remains in effect as the national guard draws down. norah? >> jeff, thank you. this morning, two former political allies of new jersey governor chris christie head to court in the george washington bridge scandal. his former deputy chief of staff bridget kelly and political appointee bill barroneny face nine counts. they were charged friday after another former christie ally david wildstein, pleaded guilty. christie says the indictments prove he didn't know about politically motivated lane this will be a busy week for presidential hopefuls. the field of republican candidates is expected to grow to six. former children's neurosurgeon ben carson says he is running.
7:09 am
he'll officially announce his plans a few minutes from now in detroit. >> former hewlett-packard ceo carly fiorina announced she is entering the race and former arkansas governor mike huckabee is expected to begin his second campaign tomorrow. he also ran for president in 2008. cbs news political director john dickerson, the future host of "face the nation" is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do we say about these three new entrants? >> doubles the field of announced candidates. that means we've got about half of the field announced. there will be a lot of republicans running. what's interesting about this group is that they are not of washington, they are not sitting politicians. they're all going to be running from the outside and they all have people who are big fans of theirs in the base. >> huckabee has a constituency. >> he does. he doesn't have a constituency from his governorship so much he has a constituency from
7:10 am
having won the iowa caucuses and being on tv. >> so he has a main line into that conservative base that watching fox news. >> john not since 14940, wendell willke has someone won without holding office. what role do they play? >> these are long shot candidates but it's a very anti-washington period so not being from washington is good news. now, there's a big conversation in the republican party about whether candidates have executive experience. in other words they've been complaining about president obama having had no such experience and they think that's the reason his presidency hasn't been so good. so that conversation will get worked out but right now what republicans and conservatives want to do is be excited by somebody and you hear them often talking about these three candidates in that way and so when they're still in the race even though they may be long shot they're going to be exciting the base of the party.
7:11 am
>> let's talk about hillary clinton, john. so far of course she's the democratic front-runner. she's campaigning in nevada and the book is coming out tomorrow "clinton cash." what impact will that have on her cam pain? what it affect it at all, do you think? >> the book has been discussed for the last several weeks. books are like presidential and can da sis, it takes them three weeks to be announced. this is going to dog the clinton campaign in a number of different ways. there has been no specific quid pro quo that's been shown by this book but there are questions that have been raised by the cluster that surround the clintons and the money that's been paid to bill clinton for his speeches and hillary clinton will have to testify about her e-mail accounts and there are connections between those two. so this will be kind of hovering outside of her candidacy. the question is whether her democratic opponents such as they are will bring this up.
7:12 am
and this is the way this would be weaponized in an early way. >> all right, john dickerson, good to see you. thank you so much. the climbing season at mount everest is likely over this morning. sherpas on the world's tallest mountain are refusing to rebuild the route destroyed by this avalanche after this month's massive 7.8 earthquake in nepal. seth doane is in kathmandu with an amazing story more than a week after the quake. seth good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we spoke with the brigadier general in charge of managing this relief operation for the u.s. military. he told us he believes people have unreasonable expectations about how quickly this relief operation can spring into action. residents picked through rubble in kathmandu trying to recovery what they can. 40 miles from the capitol, unbelievably, this man was rescued. officials claim he's 101 years old. he was taken to the hospital on
7:13 am
sunday more than a week after the quake. nepal's home ministry tells cbs news it does not expect to find any more survivors and that nepal's army is capable of pcompleting the work itself. but american teams remain welcome and a u.s. embassy official tells us they have the capabilities to reach remote regions. four osprey tilt-rotor aircraft arrived sunday and another helicopter was transported on this giant c-17. >> we're going to download these airplanes and send them out to the far reaches.reconnaissance missions were sent to start this afternoon. brigadier general paul kennedy is in charge. what are you able to do on the ground that hasn't been done? >> so we go into austere environments. very quickly with capabilities that -- we can build an airfield out of nothing and the
7:14 am
international relief community doesn't do that. >> reporter: this drone video reveals the challenge of getting aid in to tough terrain. >> this is probably our worst-case scenario because it's so distant, it's a land-locked country, a single point of entry through this international airport. that makes it tough. >> reporter: even just the runway here in kathmandu can create its own problem that is because it's so old and damaged and in need of repair. there is a weight limit that has been established being ensed to prevent heavy planes from creating more damage. gayle? >>. hundreds more migrants arrived in italy. an italian coast guard ship carrying an estimated 900 people docked in sicily. over the weekend, more than 6700 migrants were rescued in the mediterranean. that number continues to increase. among the people rescued, this news, a baby born aboard an italian navy ship. the woman was in labor when
7:15 am
crews reached her. no word on what caused the sudden death of sheryl sandberg's husband. david goldberg married the foob coo and lean in author in 2004. he led the web giant survey monkey. sandberg's said their marriage led a defining roles in their careers. in 2013, with we interviewed sandberg and her husband for "60 minutes." she described the time david stepped in when she was offered a contract at facebook. >> and my husband is like "are you kidding? you can't take the first offer." i'm like "it's a generous offer, i want this job." and finally with dave there my brother-in-law mark looked at me and goes "don't make less than any man would make doing this job. there is no man taking this job who would take the first offer." >> and, dave, what did you think when she said "i'm going to go ahead and accept it." >> apoplectic.
7:16 am
you're going to be running the negotiations and deals? you can't take the first offer. it looks bad. not so much that the money mattered but it was the principle. i wanted mark feel he stretched to get cheryl because she was worth it. >> david goldberg was 47. notice how he said "because she was worth it." he was a feminist in silicon valley and many women at his company well regard him. >> i met his conferences and liked him but i was impressed about how young people had been -- he mentored them. >> we are all thinking of cheryl today. she said once the biggest decision you will ever make is who you marry and i have an awesome husband. it was such a surprising shock to get that news over the weekend. so we're thinking of you sheryl sandberg, this morning. we have breaking news from london. the baby, the baby has been named. kensington palace just announced the name for britain's new princess. the duke and dutch of cambridge have chosen charlotte elizabeth diana.
7:17 am
elizabeth palmer is at london's kensington palace with the details and reaction. elizabeth, what is the reaction? >> well all the people who bet on charlotte will be pleased. there was a brisk trade over the weekend and charlotte was one of the front-runners. actually, that wee baby will be known be the rather extraordinary title of her royal highness princess charlotte of cambridge. now, charlotte is the name that has a royal history. in fact the wife of king george iii was a charlotte. she was a german princess who married into the english royal family and became a real pillar of the establishment. she herself had 15 children and was an early botanist and came to prominence as a scientist. so it has a pedigree, this name as well as many syllables. >> and then there's elizabeth and diana. >> well, indeed.
7:18 am
now elizabeth is obviously the name of the current queen who is very close to prince william. so they've given her the honor of naming the baby after her. and diana. that was a little bit of a surprise because a lot of people, but certainly the betting public felt diana was -- had too many unpleasant or sad con know nations. not only diana's sudden death but also the fact that she'd had such a public falling out with the royal family. but both the princes loved their mother and she was beloved by the british public so that's clearly a nod to that and to her. >> yes, i am so glad diana is -- no one checked with me elizabeth, as you might expect but i'm so glad diana is included in the baby's name. >> a beautiful, beautiful name and a tribute to many family members. elizabeth palmer thank you very much. >> and how about the title, her royal highness princess charlotte of cambridge.
7:19 am
>> think about that. george and charlotte. >> we like it. >> from the battlefield to the football field. how an unlikely nfl prospect says the military prepared him to fight for
7:20 am
it was hyped as the fight of the century. >> but it's being called a disappointment. >> the news on cbs is back here in a moment. i'm really psyched subway's bringing the flavor with this new guacamole made from creamy hass avocados... people really love it. guacamole guacamole

two lanes are blocked right now in westbound 580 at the grant line road exited. you can see how traffic is backed up to. it is solid from tracy boulevard. there is really no delay right now through the livermore valley, you can't say that often, it is due to a wreck and a bottleneck behind it. here is a look at the bay bridge, east shore freeway is especially slow from berkeley because of another early morning wreck, northbound 85 there is a wreck, use 280 instead. here is roberta. we have one hour and five minute delays on some arriving flights because of that right there, the overcast conditions, a marine so deep it's roughly 3,000 feet deep. numbers stacking up with little clearing if at any,

away with another championship belt an remains undefeated but there were many people here who were actually hoping for him to lose. with a star-studded audience and tickets reportedly selling for more than $100,000 the belt was billed as the fight of the century, but for all the hoopla many of the 17,000 spectators and those watching at home did not see the fight of the century. >> it's over. >> now that it's over was it the fight of the century? >> no it wasn't. it wasn't. >> reporter: former champion holyfield said it was a quality fight but he understands why the
7:34 am
fans are disappointed. >> why do you think the fans were dysispleased with it. >> reporter: it could be summed up in one word boring. mike tyson tweeted tweeted #underwhelmed. >> we did what we had to do tonight and i'm truly blessed. >> reporter: a lot of people were already rooting against mayweather because of his history of domestic violence arrests and two female sports journalists who have been critical of him in the past said his camp pulled their press credentials. pacquiao has also admitted to having extramarital affairs but remains the pride of the philippines and many philippines were hoping for a better
7:35 am
outcome. >> i was disappointed because there were a lot. >> reporter: justin meeks and hitz friends paid $130,000 for a lot of tickets. >> i paid a lot of money and i thought mayweather just ran a lot of last-minute orders and it overwhelmed them. you were there. what did you think? >> i was thrilled to be there. i don't know anything about boxing. i thought it was a tie. looking, sitting in my team i thought it was a team. >> most of them agree about the decision because of the way he
7:36 am
fought the fight the way he intended to fight. i loved how aggressive pacquiao was. and the fact to be there and see boxing for the first time it was remarkable. >> me too. >> it's different than tv. >> the guy who pickedmy up freddy, said he's seen more fights at the barbershop, who's next. he said it's called boxing, not ballet. >> they had a man, 91 on the stage saying some very intelligent things. the fight is something we have to talk about. many fans avoided paying the pay-per-view charges by using live streaming apps. these people let them watch the bout for free even though hbo and showtime tried to stop it.
7:37 am
showtime as you know is owned by cbs. nick good morning. they're not so happy, i'm thinking they were ticked off. is this a new form of piracy? >> it is a new form. it's a little unexpected and a big deal. >> sit wobbly and shaking? >> yes. people are taking it with their 411s and sending it out. of course, it's going to be shaky. >> what action that k they take? >> it's a copy right violation. if you film it and make a copy of it, that's a copy. they another going to attack individual uhers but they i going to try to shut it down frequently.

it's not as clear it's a copy rite violation. >> it's been happening in movie theatres for a while people take a mini cam in and photograph the movie and sell it as a dvd. the think is you would film it simultaneously. >> how do you stop it? >> this can't happen. if you want to do deals with us, you need to stop this. what normally happens with social media platforms like this, in the beginning they're kind of cavalier about piracy because it helps the system grow and then they shut it down. that will happen with meerkat and periscope. >> and twitter said the winner is periscope. what do you think about it? >> that's the insane thing.
