in explosions at an airport a metro station. flights here's a live look at brussels where at least 26 people were killed in explosions at an airport and metro station. flights into and out of the airport are on hold right now and air travel all over europe is affected. public transit is also shut down for now. kpix 5's julie watts was at london's heathrow airport as these attacks occurred and she shot this video a short time ago while waiting to take off. >> reporter: hi, guys. this is julie watts reporting video, um, from the plane on the tarmac at london heathrow. uhm, in light of the brussels attack i have been asked to talk a little bit about the mood here. what i can tell you is of course, the brussels attack is the top story on the bbc and all the london news organizations top of mind for everyone throughout europe, i am sure. in terms of the impact, however, to air travel outside of brussels, i have not seen a significant impact. folks on the plane don't seem
6:13 am
to be affected. there didn't seem to be too much increase at least visible security at heathrow. however, we are told that there is definitely increased security here. it's very sophisticated and may not be something that's obvious to the naked eye. what i can tell you what we're hearing from british news sources is the number of injured, um, and, um, fatal injuries is growing in the brussels attacks. there were several bombings at the airport and the at least early reports again this is just early, some of those bombs went off past security. there have also been attacks on the london metro and on the train and, of course, i have not verified any of this personally but this is what is being reported by british media at least before i got to the airport what was being reported by british media. again, i found no delays on the heathrow express, the train that takes from you london to the airport nor going through security were there any more significant delays than normal
6:14 am
on an international flight. we are just getting ready to take off. >> that was julie watts at heathrow airport this morning in london. meanwhile, investigate in belgium will probably be tracking data from cell phones at the time of the explosions but here in the u.s. a major development in the apple encryption debate. hearings were scheduled today but at the last minute the government postponed the hearings. kpix 5's keit do joins us live from cupertino at apple headquarters with more. >> reporter: good morning. the feds made the request to cancel the hearing yesterday afternoon just a couple of hours before the court the closed. we are learning that somebody contacted the fbi on sunday saying that they had a possible way to hack into that iphone. the u.s. attorney general's office wrote the filing saying, quote, texting is -- testing is required to determine whether it is a viable method that won't compromise dad on the iphone. if the method is viable it should eliminate the need of assistance from apple. the court filing says even as a pickuple battle with apple
6:15 am
raged on the fbi kept researching ways to hack into the phone of san bernardino shooter syed farook who killed 14 people at a company christmas party in december. the agency got word that it might be possible to break into the phone without help from apple. the feds and apple got on a conference call yesterday about the canceled hearing. but no official word yet from the company. the department of justice released a statement saying it is cautiously optimistic that this hack would work. milpitas-based company fireeye says the most likely method involves making a copy of the iphone's flash memory drive so investigators could get multiple tries at guessing the pass code. currently 10 wrong guesses will automatically erase the data. >> they probably circumvented or hacked the software that implements the encryption the security software on the phone, and they are going to try to brute force the code to get into the phone that way. >> this is an issue that
6:16 am
impacts all of us. and we will not shrink from this responsibility. >> reporter: that was tim cook at a product launch yesterday here at company headquarters in cupertino saying we need to decide as a nation how much power the government should have over our data and our privacy. apple has said a court order demanding it to help the fbi break into the phone amounts to a back door that could then be stolen and used as a master key to unlock millions of iphones world wide. the feds will take the next few weeks to hack into the phone and report back to the court on april 5. live in cupertino, kiet do, kpix 5. president obama's historic trip to cuba is ending. the white house says the president will call for the expansion of human rights on the island during a public address. then the president will try to end his trip to cuba on a less controversial notetaking in a baseball game between the cuban national team and the tampa bay rays.

systems from apple. it turns out the fbi never stopped researching ways to hack the phone of san bernardino shooter syed farook who killed 14 people at a company christmas party in december. the phone was found in his getaway car and investigators want to see if it has outside help in planning the attack. the feds and apple got on a call yesterday about the hearing but no word from the company. the doj is cautiously optimistic that this hack would work. if it does, and the feds back down, it would be a short-term win for apple. and avoid the full blown showdown in court over privacy but kpix 5 legal analyst ladoris cordell says if the government is now saying it has a way to get into the iphone, that's troubling. >> it's just so magical that the day before the hearing they -- the government says guess what? we think we have found a way to get in. it just strikes me as being a little curious. >> this is an issue that
