few years. now, isis in the sinai peninsula has made repeated claims that they brought down this plane. that is being regarded skeptically because they've offered no proof. so, for the meantime, the egyptians and the russians both calling for calm asking that everyone wait for the results of this investigation. and, alex, i want to ask you, the british foreign minister talked moments ago about how to get thousands of those tourists out of the resort area. just exactly how do they plan on doing that? >> reporter: that's right, reena. well, the foreign minister, philip hammond, said they're working to bring home these 20,000 british tourists who are still in sharm el sheikh. they're trying to get them home by tomorrow. they're talking about specially monitored flights because for now there are no regular british commercial flights being allowed to fly in and out. britain is calling these short-term special measures, but in the long term they're looking at what can be done to tighten security at the sharm el sheikh airport. reena. >> all right, alex marquardt joining us there from egypt live. alex, thank you. we now turn to presidential

"snl" has released the show's first promo. >> because of equal time rules for television, mr. trump can only speak for four seconds in this promo. >> so, let me just say this, ben carson is a complete and total loser. >> carson responded to that saying he won't be watching the show because, quote, the
presidency is a very serious thing. and in the meantime, jeb bush is on the road in his jeb can fix it bus. abc's jonathan karl went on board in new hampshire asking jeb about his struggling campaign. >> how do you get this thing back on track? >> keep having a dialogue with people that are going to decide who the next president is going to be. you can't just have another loud voice or another person from one side of the capitol to move to the other side without any proven record of experience. and i can tell my story in a positive way, which is where i'm -- that's in my comfort zone. >> reporter: jeb says he's being patient and not paying attention to poll numbers, and also happening today, we'll see the new lineup for the republican debate, and based on very low poll numbers, we'll be watching to see whether or not chris christie makes the main stage. reena, kendis. >> all right, lana zak reporting for us in washington. that debate coming up next week. and now from the democratic side, senator bernie sanders is proposing legislation that would marijuana.

insane, and my family, you know, has had a pretty hard time with it. but, you know, i'm walking away with just some scars and a clean bill of health, so i can't be, you know, much happier than i am right now. >> stone suffered knife wounds in august while helping to stop that attack on a train bound for paris. as for the american suspect, james tron, he's now charged with attempted murder and will make a court appearance tomorrow. also from california, the taco bell marketing manager who was fired after this assaulting an uber driver says he wants to apologize. benjamin golden was drunk while taking that ride, and he says he doesn't remember the incident at all. but he's asking to apologize to the driver in person. golden is charged with assault and battery. the driver is suing him seeking more than $25,000 in damages. an alabama mother's prayers have been answered. her son, who disappeared more than ten years ago, has now been located in cleveland with his
