7:02 am
it is a good morning. can you feel the excitement? bts army out, look at that. out in full force packed. that is a live look at the audience packing into central park. 3,000 people there to see our very first concert of the summer. >> and some of them have been camping out for days. see them there sleeping in the park in cold weather, the rain. bts is one of the most popular bands in the world right now and they're performing live right here on "gma." the concert is already trending on twitter. hasn't even started yet. >> as i was reporting live on the ground at 3:30 this morning, that line you saw ten blocks long down fifth avenue. big crowd in central park. we begin with breaking news overnight. the state department has ordered all non-emergency u.s. personnel to leave iraq immediately warning of threats from iran and rising tension across the region. abc's chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is tracking all the latest from washington.
7:03 am
good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. the embassy in baghdad is massive and heavily secured with thousands of employees, but this morning, all of the non-emergency personnel are being ordered to depart baghdad and depart the consulate in erbil. just last week, the u.s. warned that iran or its proxies were possibly planning an attack on american forces in the region and sent that carrier strike group and bombers as a show of force and just yesterday after a british general commanding troops in iraq told reporters that there has been no increased threat from iranian backed forces, u.s. central command issued a highly unusual rebuttal saying that the general's comments run counter to the identified credible threats available to intelligence from u.s. and allies regarding iranian-backed forces in the region and centcom said they have raised the security posture in iraq to a high level of alert due to possibly imminent threats to the more than 5,000 forces in iraq.
7:04 am
it is very rare they would make that announcement publicly, george. >> that is rare, martha, but there is also some concern inside the government, inside iraq that some of these threats may be hyped and echoing concerns to the first iraq war back in 2002/2003. >> reporter: exactly, george. many allies are skeptical of the intelligence. the british foreign secretary trying to de-escalate the situation, calling for a period of calm on both sides, worried about a miscalculation that would send us into war. of course, this has back a campaign issue, joe biden saying that the president has no foreign policy. >> and the president dismissing those reports that the pentagon had drawn up plans for 120,000 u.s. troops saying it could be far more. >> reporter: exactly. after first denying there was a plan for 120,000 troops if we were attacked, the president then said there would be many more than that. this, of course, from a president who said he would get us out of the mideast, george. >> martha raddatz, thanks very much. robin? now, george, also to that breaking news overnight, alabama lawmakers passing what could
7:05 am
become the most restrictive abortion law in the country. steve osunsami has the details. steve, a battle is brewing that could go all the way to the supreme court. good morning. >> reporter: that's right, robin. the legal challenges for this law and others like it are promised. abortion would be criminalized in alabama, made a felony and the way the law is written, it would punish doctors who perform them with up to 99 years in prison. the only exception would be if the mother's life were in danger. >> house bill 314 passes. >> reporter: it's the nation's most restrictive anti-abortion measure outlawing abortion in almost every case including rape or incest and this morning it heads to alabama's anti-abortion governor for her signature and she is expected to sign it. >> i apologize to the women of alabama for this archaic law we passed. >> reporter: the bill was passed by a veto-proof majority in the state legislature who are mostly men, and they fought so bitterly that at one point, the debate
7:06 am
had to be suspended. >> he did not make a motion. >> he did make a motion at the table. >> excuse me. >> reporter: the long game is the u.s. supreme court hoping that odds are now better that today's highest court will overturn the 1973 decision of roe versus wade which legalized abortion nationwide. >> we are trying to keep it just as it was, was to address the issue that roe versus wade was decided on, which is, is that baby in the womb a person? [ chanting ] >> reporter: outraged women have been stalking lawmakers dressed as handmaids channeling the television drama in protest. >> in "the handmaid's tale" it is all about women's autonomy because women have been pretty much treated like breeding factories, and we believe this is what laws like this do. >> reporter: this latest battle over abortion is sweeping across several states including this one, kentucky, ohio and others that have passed heartbeat laws essentially banning abortion at
7:07 am
about six weeks which critics say is before many women even know they're pregnant and essentially bans abortion altogether. robin? >> all right, steve. thank you. michael? thank you, robin. now to that bombshell report about boeing, revealing new details about a meeting shortly after the first deadly crash. in the audio recordings you can hear the pilots pleading with boeing to take more action to prevent an accident. our senior transportation correspondent david kerley has the details. david, this comes ahead of a house committee hearing on the planes today. >> reporter: yeah, it's coming up in just a couple of hours. members of congress want to know what's going on with that 737 which is grounded after those two deadly crashes, and how the faa certified that aircraft. this coming on this morning after this heated conversation, american airlines pilots asking months ago to boeing officials why didn't they know about this new flight control system. >> we flat out deserve to know what's on our airplanes. >> i don't disagree. >> reporter: the tapes reveal this morning the frustration
7:08 am
bordering on anger of pilots from the pilots union meeting just weeks after this max crash when the world learned that a new system could nose down the aircraft and may have contributed to the crash. this is the first time we have heard part of that heated conversation. >> we're the last line of defense to being that smoking hole and we need the knowledge. >> reporter: the tapes shared with media outlets including "the new york times" quoting the vice president of boeing at this november meeting saying, the worst thing that can ever happen is a tragedy like this and the even worse thing would be another one. but there was a second crash less than five months later in ethiopia. the boeing engineers trying to explain back in november why they didn't announce that new system to pilots. >> i don't know that understanding this system would have changed the outcome on this. a million miles, you're going to be maybe fly this airplane and maybe once you're going to see this ever.
7:09 am
so we try not to overload the crews with information that's unnecessary so they actually know the information that we believe is important. >> reporter: at the time boeing issued a bulletin to airlines about this new system called mcas. >> pilots taped the meeting because they were concerned about the safety of the 737 max 8 and they didn't feel like boeing was sufficiently answering their questions or giving them as much information as they wanted. >> reporter: boeing told airlines it was working on a software fix for the system. the american pilots pushing for boeing to issue a second bulletin calling for that software fix. but the upgrade was apparently not ready at the time. >> we want to make sure we're fixing the right thing. >> yeah, i get that. >> that's the important thing, to make sure we're fixing the right things, but we don't want to rush and do a crappy job fixing the right things and we also don't want to fix the wrong things. >> reporter: now, boeing did not comment on this conversation back in november. only saying that it is working with its customers and regulators to get the 737 max back up in the air and, robin,
7:10 am
it is the acting head of the faa who will be on capitol hill later this morning. >> i know but, david, to hear that audio, all right. thanks so much. now to new developments in that deadly midair crash between two sight-seeing planes in alaska. the death toll rising to six. federal investigators are now on the scene and will carr is there in ketchikan, alaska, with the latest. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, ro robin. investigators tell me they're going to take a hard look at both companies involved. it comes as we're learning more about the victims. they range in age from 39 to 56. they were all out for an adventure when something went tragically wrong. overnight, hopes were shattered in a community known for its strength. the coast guard just found two more bodies bringing the death toll to six after two float planes collided in midair. >> the larger of the two quickly began to sink where it was. >> reporter: the wreckage of the smaller plane is flipped upside down. its floats jutting out of the ice cold water.
7:11 am
a chilling reminder of the fatal crash that took place in the alaskan wilderness about eight nautical miles outside of ketchikan. >> we just kind of channeled back and forth, zigzagging around trying to look for anybody that would be trying to survive out there. >> reporter: jake bower, a volunteer firefighter combed the rugged shore line looking for survivors, but found parts of both planes instead. >> it's the part of the job that you don't look forward to. >> reporter: the ntsb now has a go team on the ground. what are some of the things you're looking into that could be the cause of this? >> we're looking at a number of factors. >> reporter: that includes the weather and both pilots' histories. abc news confirmed one, randy sullivan was killed. both planes filled with passengers from the royal princess cruise ship. the larger plane was just returning from the majestic misty fjord national monument when it crossed that fatal path with the smaller plane.
7:12 am
the question now is why? to help answer that question the ntsb went to the scene overnight. they're hoping to release a preliminary report sometime in the next two weeks, george. >> will carr, thanks very much. we go to the capitol now where senate investigators have reached a deal with the president's son don junior to testify about the russia investigation. our chief congressional correspondent mary bruce has the latest. mary, don jr. had balked at the coittee's initial request? >> reporter: yes, george. in fact, twice the president's son agreed to come you here voluntarily, but both times he failed to show up. they issued a subpoena, and now they have reached a deal. donald trump jr. is agreeing to come in and be interviewed behind closed doors sometime next month. we're told this will be limited in its scope and time. but, george, this deal now ends what had become a pretty tense standoff here on the hill between the president's son and the republican-led committee that put a lot of republicans in a
7:13 am
really awkward position and now donald trump jr. is promising to pay back these loyal republicans who stood by him during this fight. a source telling us that trump jr., quote, will return the favor come the 2020 campaign. >> wonder what that means exactly. meantime, on the house side, the house intelligence committee is now investigating trump lawyers for possible obstruction. >> reporter: yeah, george, this all stems from claims made by michael cohen. he told lawmakers that these lawyers close to the president had helped him to craft false testimony regarding that trump tower deal in moscow. now the committee wants to know if these lawyers helped to obstruct their investigation. they're demanding testimony and documents, but these lawyers are making it clear they do not plan to comply. they are citing attorney/client privilege. >> the question is what other evidence the committee has. okay, mary bruce, thanks very much. michael? >> thank you, george. now as the nor'easter finally moves out, a new storm is brewing out west. millions bracing for heavy rain, snow and flooding and ginger is here tracking it all for us. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, michael. as nice as it is to see the sun, the leftovers of some of the

of getting the number one pick in the draft lottery and now they have the opportunity to draft the most coveted player since lebron james. >> the new orleans pelicanpelic >> reporter: overnight, jubilation down in the big easy. [ cheers and applause ] in a shocking upset, the new orleans pelicans grabbing the top spot in this year's nba draft lottery. >> it's just another positive event for us in what's going to be, we hope, several we stack together. >> reporter: their prize -- >> look out. >> reporter: -- is potential number one pick zion williamson. >> whatever that team needs me to do, i'm going to be able to do it. >> reporter: the news sending shock waves around the nba. the new orleans pelicans head coach couldn't contain his emotions. even the pelicans ticket office partying like it's mardi gras. the 18-year-old phenom known for his spectacular dunks and showstopping athleticism is now likely heading south.

a city that he's never been to. >> i've never been. >> reporter: and while it is the thrill of victory for some -- >> the memphis grizzlies. >> reporter: -- it is agony for others. >> the new york knicks. >> reporter: new york knicks fans were hoping zion would be headed their way prompting this headline from "the new york daily news," the meltdown all across the city, a symbol of new york's recent success or lack thereof. the team finishing a disappointing 17-65 last season. >> ooh. they won that many, huh? >> all of 17 games. that was a tough season. a lot can happen between now and the nba draft which is june 20th but this pick could change the entire landscape. >> my reaction was like, no! i wanted the knicks to get him. >> it's the new yorker in you. >> he hasn't even been to new orleans yet. he's going to love it. he's going to love it. >> he is going to love it. now, the curry brothers last night. >> how about that. big brother steph versus little
7:17 am
brother seth. it's the first time in the nba that brothers have taken on one another in the nba conference finals. mom and dad were clearly torn about this game, though. they had to flip a coin to figure out which son they were going to cheer for. one wearing portland, one wearing a golden state jersey. steph said it's weird to play against his brother. every time they play -- this is the first they played in the playoffs. especially on this stage he knows they will have fun no matter how it turns out. mom and dad will be proud no matter how it turns out. steph had this game handedly. nine three pointers in this game. >> you play your brother. you want to whip his butt. i hope my brother plays well. no. you want to whip your brother. >> steph says it will be great as long as i win. >> exactly. >> as long as big brother wins, right? >> that's true. thanks, paula. a lot of other stories including that soccer coach who will now be a key witness in celebrities in that college admissions scandal. we'll tell you what that could mean for the case against lori loughlin. an nbc news exclusive on the delphi murder. those two indiana girls killed

7:36 am
>> guys, down the hill. >> reporter: carter is hopeful that someone in delphi now has enough to recognize and identify the killer. >> guys, down the hill. >> guys, down the hill. that extra word, what are you hoping that extra word is going to show or demonstrate? why release that? >> somebody has heard him say that before. he just didn't pick that word. he had used it before. he had used it before and it might be just that one word that makes somebody think, gosh, i do know that voice. >> reporter: whoever that is, he hopes they'll find the courage to come forward. >> somebody knows who that person is. if somebody knows something, they need to tell us. i think they're afraid to is why i think we have not heard yet. >> reporter: and for that suspect carter warns that the cops already know much more than they can share, and that one tiny clue could bring an end to all of this. >> we are one tip away from success. we are one tip away, one bit of information away from finding

when criminals perpetrate a crime, there's the thing we call the comfort zone where they don't just perpetrate a crime particularly like this one in an area they've never been so this person has been there and feels extremely comfortable. it was -- the victims were low-risk victims until they decided to go out in that isolated area that morning, and they increased their risk level. on the part of the offender, his risk level was pretty high. this was daylight. this was a park. it's public and there was a really strong chance someone could have come upon him. >> what kind of profile would you be building based on the information you have and what additional information would you need to make it more accurate? >> well, what you need is the autopsy protocol, the autopsy photographs, the method and manner of death. you do the victimology, which is important. in this case as i say they're very, very low risk types of victims. so you have this information and
