7:07 am
song. certain people were trying to leave. we stopped them and said, you should wait. she's going to do another song. it will be an encore. if we didn't tell them that, they could have left. and things could have taken a turn for the worse. we were planning on leaving. a lot of people were leaving early because they didn't know if it was anner core or not. and it happened after the final song. no one knew at that moment. >> what did you hear? what did you see? >> it must have been like ten seconds after she left, after the lights came up. there was a huge bang. it sounded like a gunshot. of coursel obviously, you don't expect anything of it. maybe she dropped the mic backstage. we were making a joke of it. it wasn't until moments after everyone started screaming, we were on the upper tier. we could see the whole arena. and we saw everyone running towards the exit where we were.
7:08 am
it took us a while to get down. that's when we got out into the arena lob poby. we saw everyone screaming and crying. it was horrific. >> did you get near, do you think, where the bomb was detonated? i'm sure the bomb was detonated on the bottom floor, obviously towards the back. it wasn't inside where we were. it was in the lobby, in the outside, where the t-shirt stands are. but i know a friend that was out there at the same time. and she said when she heard it to off, she felt the vibrations. we were on the upper tier, so, we didn't. we weren't as close. she heard it so clearly and so loudly. that's where everyone scattered as soon as it happened. >> did you see the injured? we understand it, there was the explosion. but also, a chaos and a stoom ped that happened afterwards. >> yeah. it was crazy. we got out, went to the lobby
7:09 am
was, where the exit was. and there were people with banda bandages. there was blood everywhere. we didn't know what happened. we heard bomb a few times. and everybody was panicking. we saw people all down the street with blankets, getting help. little kids crying. we had no idea what actually happened. we heard a loud bang. >> zach, you're a young guy. you've been living in the u.k. under a heightened state of alarm for security. does this now change things for yu? >> does this change the way you view your surroundings? does it change the way you're going to go about living your life? >> i think it will change the way for everyone there last night. you tonight expect it. there was security on the way in. everyone's bags were being checked. my friend had a backpack, she was being checked.
7:10 am
on the way out, they opened the door for anyone. there was thousands of people to meet their friends, kids and people to go home. the terrorists could have easily gone in towards the end of the concert. that would be when it happens. it has changed my perspective in terms of safetiness. obviously. you never know. you never know anyway. >> zach, thank you for taking the time to talk us to today. we're happy you're okay. thank you. >> thank you. the president, of course, is condemning this attack. he is in israel. he called whatever was behind it, quote, evil losers. kristen welker has that part of the story for us this morning from jerusalem. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. president trump spoke with the british prime minister theresa may earlier today and offered con toll le condolences in the wake f of that attack. he started his day with talking

with the palestinian authority. it started with a strong rebuke of terror. the horror that unfolded in manchester, as the president met with the leader of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas today. offering prayers and condolences. >> we stand in solidarity with the people of the united king m kingdom. so many young, beautiful people, enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life. >> reporter: the president condemning the attackers in his strogest te strongest terms. >> i won't call them monsters because they would like that term. they would think that's a great name. i will all them, from now on, losers, because that's what they are. they're losers. and we'll have more of them. but they're losers. just remember that.
7:12 am
>> reporter: mr. trump tying the attack to the major theme of his trip and presidency. united the civilized world to combat terrorists. >> the terrorists and extremists and those that give them aid and comfort must be driven out of society forever. >> reporter: as he aimed to restart peace talks between israelis and palestinians, mr. trump insisting that true peace starts in the middle east. >> i think if israel and the palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the middle east. and that would be an amazing accomplishment. >> reporter: the president solemn as he visited the world holocaust museum. his daughter, ivanka, tweeting about the attack. writing, we stand united with our friends in the u.k., with
7:13 am
our hearts going out to the victims of this violence. the president heads to rome tonight. how is the attack in great britain going to impact security here at home? pete williams is our security and justice correspondent. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. in the u.s., department of homeland security is not urging police to take specific action because there's no known threats here at home. nonetheless, police in new york, as they often do, as a precaution, sent extra teams to yankee stadium, where a baseball game was under way, as word of the attack began to spread. extra police, too, in times square and at train stations. and there today, police will be doing random bag checks at subway and train stations. the governor of new york, mario cuomo, has directed more security at airports, bridges and tunnels, as well. and police in boston will step up their presence at concert
7:14 am
venues at that city. there's is no evidence of danger to concert venues. but many cities may deploy extra security at public places and events. as we do after these attack, police and homeland security are saying vigilance. let's turn to the former director of the u.s. counterterrorism center. michael, good morning. good to see you. these are the early hours of the investigation. but the fact it appears to be an explosive, that alone suggests a level of sophistication. and i presume raises the possibility there was help here. >> i think that's right, savannah. we tonight know exactly how powerful the explosive was. but is 22, so many injured, that increases the effects of it. but this suggests someone with an understanding. the fact today, you don't need to go to a place like syria to
7:15 am
get that understanding. you can get it on the internet. that makes the attacks so tough to stop. >> this suicide bomber did not challenge security at a venue. we think, how tough is it to get in to one of these arenas. he stood outside of a perimeter, near a hub of temperatureranspod waited for the guests to pour out of the building. >> as people were exiting, there they were. this is a trend we see more and more. we saw it in the airport attack in turkey. we saw it in the attack in brussels. they know where the sturdy perimeter is. >> we heard there was one arrest, presumably maybe more. what are investigators doing? >> they've made a big step. they identified the individual from elements at the scene. from there, you go out in
7:16 am
circles. every person he talked to. where the money was. make sure no one else is out there plotting. from there, it's understanding how this occurred. it will look a lot like what we've seen in the past. radicalization via the internet. move to wherever you are and you end up with this tragedy. >> it might change the way he views his life and security. the british have an expression, stay calm and carry on. does this change things in great britain, which has been the target of so many attacks over the last 12, 15 years? >> undoubtedly, matt. for the people who were there and saw this, it will change their perspective. for the british people and for this battle, it won't change that much. that's something that the british understand from their fights against the i.r.a., al qaeda and now isis. it will modify tactical elements of security at places like these venues. ultima
7:17 am
ultimately, this is facing it with a stiff upper lip the. just as they have on 7/7 in london. and other attacks. let's make a turn and get a quick check of the weather from al. >> all right, guys. thank you so much. a lot of rain down through the southeast. moving into the mid-atlantic states. you can see we have pretty strong storms going on from new orleans up to raleigh. that's where we have 26 million folks at risk for flash flooding today. as low pressure moves up the coast and the mid-atlantic, downpours through the southeast will continue into tomorrow, as a second front diapers down into florida, bringing much-needed rain into those areas. but we have a flood threat because the ground is saturated one to two inches of rain generally. generally. but up to four inches when you turns out things aren't always what you think they are. generally. but up to four inches when you take guinea pigs. they're not pigs at all, nor are they from guinea. or take this haircut.

7:31 am
the palestinians could begin a process of peace throughout the middle east. mr. trump spoke at a meeting with president mahmoud abbas. he is hopeful that america can help israel and the palestinians work out their longstanding differences. jury selection resumes in pittsburgh in bill cosby's sexual assault case. three men and two women were selected on monday. the 79-year-old comedian will stand trial on june 5th on charges he drugged and molested women in his home in 2004. the nashville predators defeated the anaheim ducks to advance to the stanley cup final for the very first time. they're going to face pitburg, the penguins, or the ottawa senator senators. you can see game six tonight on nbc sports network. people that sing the anthems at the predators game are top drawer. let's get back to the tragic
7:32 am
terror attack in manchester, england. keir simmons is there for us. keir, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. i've been talking to british officials throughout the morning. they tell me, the first priority is to make sure there's not another attack. with they have to establish what they think they know about the suicide bomber and whether that person has a connection to others, who may still be on the loose. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: europe is reeling from another terror attack this morning. britain's deadliest in more than a decade. >> i saw someone outside that were covered in blood. >> reporter: some concertgoers telling nbc news they saw little security. >> they never checked us. there should have been security in place. >> reporter: an urgent question. was this bombing carried out with the held of others. like the brussels airport attack in 2016, where more than 30 were killed by isis-backed jihadists.
7:33 am
or paris 2015, where isis used semiautomatic weapons a ensuicide vests. that time, 130 died. then, too, many were attending a concert at a small venue. or was this an attacker acting alone, like in nice, france, just under a year ago. there, a well, not a bomb, but a truck driven at high speed, leaving 86 dead. the driver, apparently inspired on the internet. two months ago, london's westminster, another vehicle attack led to arrests across the u.k., including in manchester. this morning, british intelligence is working to establish who is behind this latest atrocity. >> the police and services think they know the identity of the perpetrator. but at this stage, we cannot reveal his name. >> reporter: u.k. security forces have been on high alert, making 260 terrorism-related
7:34 am
arrests last year. thwarting 13 potential attacks in just 4 years, british officials say. but it is impossible to keep every place secure. and last night was proof of that. this morning, europe is grieving again. british officials tell me they do believe there will be security footage, meanwhile. they think this was planned, that it was deliberate. and what's really chilling about that is whoever did this would know there would be innocent people, including children there. they may have seen them before they detonated the explosives. richard clarke served as chief terror adviser to former president bill clinton. and he's the co-author of a new book called "warnings." richard, good morning. it's good to have you here in your expertise. i want to pick up where keir left off.
7:35 am
this is a target of little girls, western concert, music, that can be no accident. >> no. the british have arrested over 200 people in the last year. they've broken up plots. there might have been five or six of these last year, if the british police and intelligence service hadn't been better. but you can't stop them all, no matter how good you are. one will get through. >> you talk about arrests. the british intelligence service and intelligence services throughout the world, have become good at identifying people who have become radicalized. and they keep those people under surveillance to the best of their ability. the problem is how do they know they've become activated? >> that's one of the problems. another one of the problems, that there's thousands of people that are radicalized. and you're right. there's a moment when the radicalized person becomes active. you can't tell when that happens. >> when the name comes out, do
7:36 am
you think this is a name the british intelligence will have known about? >> most certain he will have been on the monitoring list. but you cannot monitor every moment of the day in these numbers. that's why, we have to get to the root of the problem. we can't just try to stop these attacks through intelligence purposes and police purposes. we have to get at the root. there's an ideology here that says it's okay to kill children. we have to get at that ideology. convince people that it's wrong. there's no religious justification in any religion. the only way to stop this so we don't keep doing it year after year after year. is get religious leaders and others to speak out and say, this is not islam. and to get at the root causes of the socioeconomic reasons, too. >> obvious live, we've seen a lot of these kind of attacks in western europe. but the u.s. is not immune. and every parent, thinking
7:37 am
about, what if i took my child to a concert? this should happen here. do you think the u.s. is at any different position standpoint with the communities here versus the communities overseas? >> that's the one thing we have going for ourselves that makes the u.s. different than britain. they have a good police and security service and so do we. but we have not ostracized. we embraced our muslim-americans. that's why the talk against muslims last year in the campaign and since, has been very counterproductive. the only way to solve this problem is to have everyone think they're on the same side. >> richard clarke, good to have your perspective. >> good to see you. >> we want to maengs thention t lester is on his way to manchester as we speak. he will have in depth coverage tonight on "nbc nightly news." let's take a turn and get the weather from al. >> they've been seeing a lot of drought in florida.
7:38 am
that's going to change in 48 hours. we have a risk of strong storms. 18 million folks at risk, isolated hail and tornadoes. the atmosphere, juiced up. a lot of humid air. as the slow-moving front pushes to the east. we're going to see localized flooding and isolated tornados. heavy rain, stretching from northern florida into central florida. one to two inches. but could see amounts o good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. a dry start this morning with some breaks of sunshine. clouds and sunshine this morning, then the clouds are back this afternoon. a warmer day today. 74 degrees in philadelphia. and low 70s in the suburbs. any fog around first thing this morning disappears as the morning progresses. new jersey will be dry, but the first to see showers later today will be the jersey shore. those showers coming up from the south. central and southern delaware will see late afternoon showers. eventually moving into the rest of the area tonight. have a great day.

7:43 am
back, now, at 7:43, with more on the deadly suicide bombing at the ariana grande concert in england, sending shock waves around the world. >> it's highlighting again how difficult it can be to prevent attacks on so-called soft targets like arenas. tom costello is at the verizon center in washington, d.c., with that part of the story. tom, good morning. >> good morning. if you come to a concert here, like many venues around the country, you're going to be met by unarmed security guards, police out on the streets. but that's hardly a deterrent
7:44 am
for a determined suicide bomber that wants to kill as people are going in or coming out. by its very definition, terrorism is about striking fear in the heart of the public. and there's no better place than so-called soft targets. the arena in manchester, the airport arrival and departure halls. a christmas market in berlin, a boardwalk in nice. the nightclub in orlando. an office christmas party in san bernadino. and the list goes on and on. >> it's impossible to secure all places at all times at 100% security. what yu can try to do is gather as much intelligence and information as possible, about those planning these attacks. >> reporter: in 2017, security has become puervasive wherever e go. concerts, airports, events, and shopping malls.
7:45 am
overnight, the nypd deployed extra units around the city, from times square, to penn station, to yankee stadium, where the yankees played the royals. >> everybody was great. a lot of security. everybody was safe. >> reporter: but security has its limits. >> soft targets are the hardest things to defend against. there's not really layers of security for a soft target. >> the key, says experts, for the public to be vigilant. be suspicious of someone who makes threats or acts erratically. seems to be gathering information on anything from shift changes to security procedures. or seems to test security with false alarms. 16 years after 9/11, terrorism officers say the see something, say something directive, is just as urgent as ever. and often, the best way to stop an attack. >> the balance between security and privacy is a difficult one. terrorists only have to succeed once. and security officials have to worry, not only about all
7:46 am
potential suspects but worry about hardening targets in an open society. >> reporter: this morning, federal authorities are reituating they know of no imminent threat to the u.s. this said, major police departments are stepping up patrols, including nupd, boston p.d., lapd. but again and again, the experts stress the best intelligence comes from everyday citizens who see something that doesn't look right and they say something. back to you. >> tom, thank you very much. as tom ran down the list of all of the soft target attacks, over four or five years, it takes your breath away. >> it does. if you have a gut feeling and you see something, it's better to call than not say something. coming up, we're going to shift topics and ask the question, could o.j. soon be a free man again? there's a new parole hearing just granted. what

8:08 am
and everybody was trying to leave, get out of the arena, with the flights of stairs they have. and all of a sudden, we heard the huge explosion, the first one. the floor just started to shake. it was just -- i've never heard a sound like it in my life. and everybody around me started screaming and crying. we didn't know if it was a bomb. >> jenny, i see, you are sitting so close to your daughter and wanting to hold her close, understandably. how did you hear about this? and did you have moments when you wondered, where is she? is she going to be okay? >> yes. from the stadium, it was a moment of sickening. >> jessica, you said something.t one. we only have reports that there was one bomb and one bomber. do you remember hearing something else? >> i remember -- i heard the
8:09 am
main one in the arena, when everybody starts to run. and then, as we were walking out, i heard another loud noise. so did everybody else. i don't know if it was just something outside or -- i don't know. i just remember hearing another one as we were walking to go out of the doors and all of the sirens were going off telling everybody to evacuate the building. >> we're so sorry to hear about everything that happened to you. we're glad you're okay and glad you're sitting there with your mom. thanks for joining us today. nbc news analyst shawn henry is a former assistant director of the fbi. good to see you, as always. that's what terror intends to do, disrupt lives and bring terror into people's lives. and the way this bomber or if there were accomplices, we don't know, did it, was horrifyingly
8:10 am
simple in terms of avoiding security. >> that's right, matt. we've seen these types of attacks over the last few years. and the hardened perimeters. magnetometers and people searching bags, to create that perception of safety and stop people from coming in. we may see a change of the tactics where they're outside the venue, knowing the conclusion of the concert, people will be coming out. that becomes the soft target. we're not going to be able to create a hardened perimeter around everything. i would also add, that the target -- they knew that this was an ariana grande concert. the people that go to these are young children and adults. >> they're targeting little girls if you're going to an ariana grande concert. let's talk about the bomb here. it offers clues for investigators. we see the claim of isis, this
8:11 am
was one of its members. will the bomb tell us how much voracity is in such a claim? >> absolutely. there's an entire program with the military and law enforcement agencies, looking for the signatures. the triggering device, the explosives that were utilized, the packaging in which the bomb was concealed. looking at those things, often able to identify who the bombmaker was and especially back to a particular group. >> we had an earlier guest on, that said once we know the name of the bomber, that person would be known to authorities. and the question is, why don't they get him earlier? >> there's a great challenge to law enforcement and the intelligence community. there's a lot of people that have made statements, particularly here in the u.s. you have a right to say things. you might go up to the line. if you don't cross the line, law enforcement can't take action. they're on the radar, watching
8:12 am
them. frankly, they're overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources to cover everybody they would like to cover. they have to prioritize. >> as we cover the tragedy of all this, a terror group that might be behind this sees this as a victory. they see this as a tool to get other people to come and join them. >> that's exactly right, matt. this is a marketing ploy by them. not only do they want to insight terror and create havoc, they're looking to raise money and raise their level on the global stage. by creating an incident like this, they do exactly that. >> something worth remembering. this is potentially a sophisticated attack, that somebody was able to set off an i.e.d. if it's just a person with a life or a truck or a car, isis, al qaeda, whoever is responsible for it, they see that as a propaganda victory. >> they have been told, fight
8:13 am
where you are, fight where you stand, by whatever means necessary. when we did in times square earlier this week, we immediately default, this must be terrorism, because we're seeing those kind of attacks. they're going to do whatever they can to get themselves on the front burner, to raise attention and do what they can to create and make their group larger. >> shawn, thank you very much. >> thank you. just ahead on a tuesday morning, o.j. simpson getting a new shot at parole. what experts are saying about the chances he'll actually get out. and in our next half hour, the cast of the beloved show "the love boat" is celebrating a special

8:17 am
investigation. the new agencization that former administration adviser michael flynn, disguided the pentagon on his ties to russia. and also pushing the boundaries for a president whose campaign aides remain under investigation. with the russian investigation intensifying, a senior official telling nbc news, that in march, the national director asked the head of the security skgs, and the director, to push back on suggestions that trump's campaign colluded with russia. the two spy chiefs, mike rogers and dan coats, turning the president down. both men concerned enough to compare notes about the president. rogers viewed it as a threat to the nsa. neither director asked believe he was asked to do something
8:18 am
illegal. this as michael flynn is facing tighter scrutiny. when he applied to have his security clearance renewed. according to documents, flynn said he was paid by u.s. companies when he attended this 2015 gala with vladimir putin. even though cummings said he was paid by the russians. also this morning, flynn's lawyer says his client will plead the fifth, refusing to turn over records subpoenaed by congress, of his conversations between russian officials, between last june and inauguration day. given all of the records, his lawyers say he has a reasonable apprehension that anything he turns over could be used against him. to other trump associates, paul manafort and stone, have appealed for documents. the proposal calling for sweeping cuts to social safety
8:19 am
nets, like medicaid. $800 billion slashed over ten years. and nearly $200 billion from the food stamp program. the proposal puts taxpayers first. he insists it will balance the budget over ten years. because it focuses so heavily on programs benefiting the poor and disabled, it would likely hurt the low income americas that voted him, president trump, into office. it's especially cruel for people that need a handout. >> can we go back to the russia investigation for second? people waiting to hear from jim comey. what's the latest that can happen? >> we believe that will happen after memorial day. james comey, the former fbi director, plans to consult the special prosecutor, robert mueller, about what he can and
