7:02 am
story. the first arrest in the attack at istanbul's ataturk airport. richard engel is in istanbul with the latest. >> reporter: there have been police raids in istanbul at multiple locations. a police source also told us they identified the three member russian cell, russian speaking cell they believe carried out this attack and identified them as a russian national. the turkish media reporting the three rented an apartment here in istanbul three months ago paying in cash. an upstairs neighbor said they were suspicious because they installed a second security gate, never opened the windows, and there was a chemical smell
7:03 am
coming from the apartment. turkish security forces are on the hunt looking for people who may be connected to the turkish airport attackers. they raided three neighborhoods in istanbul. authorities say the raids targeted isis suspects. at least 13 people have reportedly been detained so far. turkey has accused isis of carrying out the attack at the istanbul airport, an attack well planned and executed but could have been far worse if not for the brave actions of turkish security forces. based on the accounts of the prime minister and others, initial reports suggest the attack was a rolling commando style operation. the terrorists arrived by taxi with firearms. a bomb detonated curbside allowing two remaining terrorists to slip past security and enter the terminal itself. a video appears to show the
7:04 am
moment when a witness said a policeman tackled one of the suspects in the terminal wrestling him to the ground but it seemed the bomber still manageded ed td to detonate. the surviving bomber made his way to an upper level but he, too, was shot and killed by police before he detonated. the police officers are celebrated here as heroes. british individual videographerd and helped people get to a safe place. >> families struggling with kids and babies and small children but all just trying to get back away from the area. >> reporter: the world has condemned the triple suicide attacks. president obama stressed the u.s. will triumph over terrorists. >> we're still learning all of the facts but we know this is part of our broader shared fight against terrorist networks.
7:05 am
>> reporter: and the investigation here continues into the three-man russian speaking cell and attempts to round up any potential accomplices. there was a major development in the fight against isis in iraq. iraqi forces say that destroyed an enormous convoy of isis vehicles south of fallujah. that air assault taking place early yesterday morning. 200 or more isis vehicles were destroyed. hundreds of fighters killed as they tried to flee the desert area south of fallujah and head west for safety. an impressive military victory by the iraqi military over isis it would seem. >> richard engel in istanbul for us this morning. thank you so much. in a new interview, the head of the cia says he fears isis will try a similar attack here in the u.s. let's bring in nbc's tom costello. he's at reagan national airport with a secure at airports
7:06 am
heading into the fourth of july weekend. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. most travelers who are going to be out and about over the next few days and week will probably not see a significant change in the security posture at airports nationwide. some select airports, jfk in new york and miami, they put their tactical police units on a higher profile on a higher footing, if you will. they are really not changing their security status either. this is not showing a deterrent but also help reassure the public. the tsa says for most airports that they are running -- across the country they are running checkpoints across the country no significant change to the status of security operations. that said, we're looking at something like 7 million people flying over the course of the next week and if there's one thing that concerns many security analysts, it's this. here at reagan international airport they have steel pylons here, pillars if you will, that are supposed to block the entrance into the airport so that somebody in a large truck
7:07 am
with explosives couldn't just ram or drive right into the airport. that said, he or she could park it right there and right above the roof is the control tower and it's also a situation where you don't have any police presence right here. you can have people rush the airport with ak-47s or whatever the weapon might be. that's not unlike any other airport in the country. this is pretty standard. so the concern among many security analysts is that many airports simply aren't hardened enough. we'll talk about that in the next half hour. guys, back to you. >> tom, thank you very much. let's talk about politics now and the presidential race. mitt romney is adding to his criticism of donald trump and opening up about who urged him to run this time around as an independent. nbc's hallie jackson is on the campaign trail in new hampshire. hal hallie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump later today will speak with reporters here in new hampshire. the site of his first primary win in the republican race long
7:08 am
before mitt romney and others went after him hard. romney revealing his family wanted him to throw his hat in the ring this year. romney saying he could have been a contender. new digs at donald trump from the republican party's last nominee. >> i didn't think he would run in the first place because i assumed he never put in his tax returns. i got half that right. >> reporter: mitt romney admitting it crossed his mind to run as a third-party candidate this year after weeks of speculation he could be the gop's white nighknight. >> my wife and kids wanted me to run. you think about things like that from time to time. i don't think an independent can win. >> reporter: trump still struggling to unite his party but a new poll showing half of republicans want a different nominee. but trump's brushing it off with defiant ultimatum to former rivals that haven't endorsed him. >> they shouldn't be allowed to
7:09 am
run for public office again because what they did is disgraceful. >> reporter: trump in maine yesterday where howie carr raised this attack on elizabeth warren. >> you know elizabeth warren, right. >> reporter: a reference to trump's repeated hits against warren's self-proclaimed native american heritage. warren on the trail for hillary clinton. herself under fire. >> she's not tough enough. >> reporter: clinton announcing her first campaign appearance next week with president obama who is clearly eager to take aim at how trump portrays his populist message. >> that's nativism. or worse. or it's just cynicism. >> reporter: the president at a major press conference in canada with other north american leaders but in a sign of just how big a story the 2016 presidential race has become, the first questions to all of them, all about trump.
7:10 am
>> one of the candidates that wants to replace president obama has already said he wants to renegotiate nafta. >> you seem to be careful when you talk about mr. trump. >> reporter: so who is trump talking about when he refers to these formal rivals who pledge to support the gop nominee but haven't endorsed trump? governors scott walker, john kasich, senator ted cruz. all names that could be in play come 2020. >> thank you. new developments in the crash of that egyptair plan that plunged into the mediterranean sea last month. investigators saying it showed signs of intense heat and smoke in the moments before the crash. the flight data recorder from egyptair deligflight 804 reveal smoke. some of the wreckage showed signs of high temperature damage and soot. the flight en route from paris to cairo crashed on may 19th
7:11 am
killing all 66 people onboard. some authorities initially pointed to terrorism, officials increasingly believe the aircraft's technical systems may be to blame. a bombshell announcement in london this morning where boris johnson says he won't run for leader of the conservative party or prime minister. he was considered an early favorite to succeed prime minister david cameron, a brexit opponent who said after the vote that he would be stepping down. johnson, however, said after consulting colleagues, he concluded that he could not be the next conservative party leader. in other news this morning, the organizers of the academy awards are making new moves to address the outcry over that award show's lack of diversity. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is in los angeles with more on this. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. after months of intense scrutiny, the academy of motion
7:12 am
picture, arts and sciences will soon have a new look. this morning the academy is opening its doors inviting a new much more diverse group of artists to join its ranks. on wednesday, the academy of motion picture, arts and sciences, the organization behind the oscars, announced 637 new invitations. more than twice the number of last year. of those invited, 46% are women and 41% of people of color. potential new members include -- gabrielle union writes "huge honor. i can't wait to vote." the list also include bree
7:13 am
larson and oscar isaac. >> we're going to do this. >> hollywood came under fire for a lack of diversity when for the second year in a row, not a single person of color was nominated in any acting category. >> if they nominated hosts, i wouldn't even get this job. >> reporter: the backlash was quick igniting the hashtag oscarssowhite on social media and a boycott from some of hollywood's biggest stars including will smith and his wife jada. wednesday's announcement highlights hollywood's lack of female representation. in a new study obtained by "the hollywood reporter" women filmmakers and actresses are given smaller budgets for their films despite higher returns than their male counterparts. in a statement, the academy's president said, "we are not
7:14 am
going to wait for others. we've been looking at this organization for a long time and we recognize changes need to be made. one of them was more inclusion." the academy says it's a major step toward becoming more diverse but not the last. matt and tamron, back to you guys. >> thank you very much. to the holiday travel rush on the roads. a record 36 million americans are expected to drive to their holiday destinations over the july 4th weekend. one reason for the increase this year, gas prices are the lowest we've seen in 11 years. how can you avoid spending time stuck in traffic? dylan has taken to the streets to help get you where you need to be. dylan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know, snowstorms and hollywood weekends is when you find me coming to you live from a car. usually a slow moving car. right now we're moving okay. aside from leaving right this second for your long weekend though, there are a couple times that are ideal.
7:15 am
friday morning before 7:00 a.m. or saturday morning before 11:00 a.m. if you are planning on cutting out of work early today or tomorrow, it's not recommended though. not only are you dealing with vacation travelers but then you're tacking on rush hour commuters on top of that. our good friends put together some calculations and they said the worst time to travel no matter matter where you live will be between 3:00 and 8:00 p.m. today and tomorrow. if you do find some open road, it's not recommended that you speed because there will be 26% more police officers on the road for the fourth of july weekend. you don't want to get a ticket. that would ruin everything. i know it's early to talk about the trip back home already. once you do start thinking about it, keep in mind that monday between 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. on average will be the worst time to travel. and the worst travel times for major cities and you can see
7:16 am
that's the trend for most cities except for san francisco. the worst time then when they expect gridlock is between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on monday. i'm not going on vacation. i'm just trying to get to studio 1a and i'm already a little bit slow right now. hopefully i'll see you guys in a little bit. tamron? >> dylan, i'm not sure you and your crew next to you in the black suv are making a lot of friends going 25 miles an hour up that road. we'll see you shortly, all right. >> reporter: that's part of the reason why there's traffic. >> all right, dylan. thank you. here's some great news. michael phelps, the most decorated athlete in olympic history heading back to his fifth summer games. phelps won the 200 meter butterfly last night at the u.s. swimming trials in omaha. moments after touching the wall phelps held up five fingers to signal his accomplishment. phelps still has two more events at the trials.
7:17 am
today by the way, his 31st birthday. a lot to celebrate. also making the u.s. olympic team last night, missy franklin and katie ledecky punched her ticket to a second individual event in rio. congratulations to all. >> can you feel it? it's looking good, right. excitement. >> getting exciting. >> let's get a first check of the forecast with mr. roker. >> following with dylan's lead that we take a look and show you what's going on tomorrow as far as travel trouble spots. two main areas. the southwest and the plains for tomorrow. monsoonal moisture bringing in local flooding so airports in phoenix, albuquerque, denver, kansas city, oklahoma city, may see some problems. along the roads, i-70 may be travel trouble spots and all along i-45, i-40 i should say, and i-35. in the northeast moist unstable air mass in place and we look for storms. look for airport delays boston, new york, washington, d.c., buffalo, i-90, i-95 going to see

nbc's joe fryer has the latest on this. joe, good morning. >> reporter: matt, an emergency court hearing is taking place this morning to discuss the whereabouts of michael borcina. he was asked to turn over some construction documents as part of a lawsuit stemming from that fire but right now some of the attorneys in this case are saying he's nowhere to be found. it's the latest mystery surrounding a christmas day fire that killed madonna badger's three children and both of her parents. where is michael borcina? in a court filing, attorneys for the city of stamford say they've been informed that mr. borcina cannot in fact be located. it's unclear what efforts have been made to locate him. they also state in late may borcina's attorney said he's been unsuccessful in his attempts to contact mr. borcina and doesn't know where he's presently located. nbc news reached out to borcina's attorney but has not heard back. >> the judge might decide the contractor is in contempt of court. he failed to provide key evidence to another party. that can have serious

attacks on major airports in just three months, there's renewed focus on security worldwide. >> the question is can more be done to keep you safe when you fly or when you're about to fly. nbc's tom costello joins us again. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know, the tsa knows it's had a problem with undercover agents smuggling mock weapons through checkpoints. the most recent test suggest maybe there's improvement there. what about security as you approach the airport. that's a whole different story. in istanbul, a new security directive may have saved lives. armed police officers newly stationed at the airport entrance doors immediately confronted the attackers preventing them from moving deeper into the terminal. a lesson not lost on other airport security experts. israel's airport has a reputation for the tightest security in the world. police and military units watched the terminal, use facial
7:44 am
recognition cameras and question every passengers. the security starts at the airport perimeter. >> before you're allowed to drive your car toward the front of the terminal, this is the first measure. from that moment on, you're in a secured area and that area is covered by surveillance systems. >> reporter: here in the u.s., no airport stops every approaching car. nbc's miguel almaguer in l.a. >> at l.a.x. it's not uncommon to see security checkpoints like this and you'll see more security ahead. it's not uncommon to see police officers heavily armed throughout this area. >> reporter: in most european airports, two and three men military units patrol the terminals. here in the u.s., tactical police units are most common in the big cities but very few airports position those airports at the entry doors. nbc's ron mott in chicago. >> often hundreds of people standing in close proximity to one another and there's absolutely no one safeguarding
7:45 am
the doors. you can walk right in. >> reporter: nbc's gabe gutierrez is in atlanta. >> you have shops and restaurants near baggage claim but before the security checkpoint. there's some law enforcement here but the common areas remain open. >> i still think airport security is a gold standard in the united states. >> reporter: john reviewed foreign and american operations for the tsa. this morning the european countries in red are viewed as being at a high risk for a terror attack. does anybody in europe do a better job of security? >> for the front side of the airport i believe the french do. they do because they put armed military personnel as a very visible deterrent and force in the front side of the airport. >> reporter: the biggest concern, most u.s. airport entrances are not hardened to withstand an attack. when you compare the israeli security system to ours, you need to keep something in mind. they have one international airport. 50,000 passengers a day. we have 450 airports, 2 million
7:46 am
passengers a day. it's going to be difficult to embrace all of their tactics but the question is could we take some of their tactics and use them here. for example, should we put police at nearly every door? very expensive proposition. guys, back to you. >> tom, great point. thank you very much. just ahead on a much lighter note, you may be surprised at who was just named hollywood's highest grossing actress of all-time. an emotional end to a fairy tale run at wimbledon. we've been following this one and it came to an end. what makes a lipton meal? well, first you start with this. then add this. and this face... wait, we can do better. yeah... that's the one. and of course fresh brewed lipton iced tea. because it goes great with this. woops, more of these. and definitely more of this. ah, that can wait. but not you buddy. huh what's this? ah... i like it. what makes a lipton meal? what you bring to it. and the bright refreshing taste of lipton iced tea.

average that kids are coming out of school with and we just got a survey in e-mail yesterday from a third of students say they rather not have sex for ten years than carry that amount of debt. a lot of them are not making their payments. 3.6 million people are in default. they are having trouble. >> that makes it incredibly difficult to jump-start and get things going in your life out of college. >> what we hear from people in debt, they're unable to buy homes. they put off getting married, having kids. really difficult to get your life started. >> you have some real life examples because again you're looking at potentially six-figure loan debt straight out of college. >> this is mike and rachel. a nurse came out of school with $100,000 in student loans and they were not able to save for the house they wanted to save for because their monthly payments were $1,250 a month.

we helped them. we suggested that they refinance their student loans. took out a 20-year loan. reduced interest rate from 7.5% to just over 5%. new monthly payment $635. that's a lot of freedom. it's allowing them to save for that goal. >> you cut the payment or help them cut the payment in half. looking at other people with the same situation, is that something available to everyone? >> so there are a few different ways to reduce your monthly payments. if you have federal loans, you want to just look into consolidating. consolidating will not reduce your interest rate but allow you to qualify for programs that allow you to spread out your payments, which can reduce your monthly payment even though you may pay more in interest over the long-term. the next thing to look at is the repay program. pay as you earn program.

it's a government program. if you have federal student loans, you are allowed to reduce your monthly payments under this program to 10% of your income. that's a big relief for a lot of people. after 20 years, if you still have loans on the books for an undergraduate degree, whatever you have left, gets wiped away. for graduate degrees, it's 25 years. so this can be a big relief. if you have been in a previous income based repayment program, you still want to look at this because those old programs cap monthly payment at 15% of your income. this is 10. >> if you are already in a program, do you stay the course or look for other options? >> you look into this program. it's also true if you're in a public loan forgiveness program. it doesn't reset the ten-year clock on public service loan forgiveness which is if you're working in a helping profession you get a break after ten years. so you can look at this as well.
8:43 am
finally, this is what we suggested for mike and rachel. you can refinance your loans through a private lender. generally you need to have at least $10,000 in loans for these lenders to be willing to work with you. you have to have a steady job. you have to have a stable income. good credit really important here and a college degree in some cases. magni keep a list of different lenders willing to work in this marketplace. >> any caution signs to look for in refinance? >> the one caution i mentioned earlier. if you lower your payments but make them for a longer period of time, you could end up paying more money overall. just something to keep aware of. knowing that you've got that sort of relief on a monthly basis often makes life possible in a way it wasn't before right now and allows you to do things like buying a house, getting married, having kids. do your research. make sure that you go through all of the steps before you take

8:53 am
there. it started back with coal miners packing these to take in their lunch because pepperoni wouldn't go bad. >> the dough is made in your family. you can use them for cinnamon buns or something like this. >> this is a recipe my great aunt pat and grandma make all the time. start with yeast mixture. warm water helps activate the yeast and sugar helps it feed. i have canola oil in here. whisk this. approximate you the in sugar, salt and an egg. just keep whisking it. i'll add to that some cold water. then i'm going to add to it warm water. >> in that order? is that important? >> yes. then a you'll mix in the flour. this is a really forgiving dough. if you follow this recipe, it's pretty much foolproof. we have it all the time like refrigerator rolls. comes out like this after you already mixed it.
8:54 am
>> we'll pretend i did that. you have to work with that dough a lot. >> you do. so flour surfaced. take it on near and knead it for eight to ten minutes. i set a timer on my phone so i know that i get it long enough. >> what does that actually do? >> this will help develop gluten and make it stretchy and elastic. you want to do it until it gets nice and stretchy and starts to smooth out. i put it in a bowl. this goes into the refrigerator for three hours to rise. >> look at what happens. it rises quite a bit. >> punch it down and then we'll roll it out into a big rectangle. at this point you could really fill this with whatever you wanted. if you want to do cinnamon rolls, you could. we're doing pepperoni. i put pepperoni down first. >> there's one extra piece there. >> and then you're going to top it with broccoli after that. season that with a little bit of garlic salt and then the cheese. >> what kind of that? >> shredded mozzarella. important to do it in this
8:55 am
order. broccoli has a lot of moisture and that pepperoni and cheese will make it like a cocoon and hold it in there so dough doesn't get soggy. after you made your nice layer. roll it up. just like you would cinnamon rolls. you want to squeeze this cylinder so that it seals and then take a knife. cut off the end because there's not as much good stuff down there. and then slice them. you see you get these nice spirals just like this. and then you put them into a greased casserole dish. cover it. let it rise another hour and a half. then it goes into the oven. i have some back here. into the oven for 45 minutes at 350. it comes out looking like this. i mean, look how good these look? we used to have these all the time during the summer if you're having a pool party, a great thing to have. perfect for fourth of july. comes out. >> let me ask downstairs? >> so good. what a great idea.

(laughing) and now in delicious chocolate. when you have type 2 diabetes, like me, hi, i'm dominique wilkins. there's a moment of truth. and with victoza®, a better moment of proof. victoza® lowers my a1c and blood sugar better than the leading branded pill, which didn't get me to my goal. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in three ways-- in the stomach, the liver and the pancreas. and while it isn't for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. non-insulin victoza® comes in a pen and is taken once a day. (announcer) victoza® is not recommended
9:21 am
as the first medication to treat diabetes and is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you get a lump or swelling in your neck or if you develop any allergic symptoms including itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so, stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. now's the time for a better moment of proof. ask your doctor about victoza®.
