7:02 am
horrific terrorist attack. we've got complete coverage this morning. let's start with bill neely at the scene for us. bill, good morning. what happened? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is britain's fourth terror attack in as many months and the third in london, in which a vehicle was used as a weapon. but this one was different because it seems that a group of religious worshippers was targeted. minutes after another deadly terror attack and the injured were treated where they fell, rammed by a van at high speed. >> people bleeding there was streaming. pure anarchy. >> reporter: the attacker appears to have targeted people leaving prayers at a mosque. he crashed his van and tried to escape but was caught by the crowd. some saying he was shouting at muslims. >> he said, i did it and i want to kill some muslims. >> reporter: those he tried to kill handed him over to police. >> he was led away to the police van.

7:05 am
vans, the ability to terrorize individuals. and the ideology doesn't matter here. it's terror. and authorities have to worry about the escalation of violence. >> this is the third time in as many months that we've come on and talked about a van attack in the city of london. there are people in europe, but also here in the united states wondering what do you do to protect against these low-tech attack where is all you have is a man with a van? >> this is difficult to stop in an open society where you have foot traffic and vehicle traffic. you have to create layers of security around events, where people are congregating, potentially barriers and even just restricting areas where you've got lots of pedestrians, just to walkways. but it's a difficult thing to stop, especially in congested areas, as in london, as in new york. it's just hard to stop if you have somebody motivated to kill fellow citizens and innocents. >> juan, thanks for your perspective. there are new questions this morning about the deadly
7:06 am
collision between a u.s. naefl destroy navy destroyer and a container ship off of japan. this is as the seven sailors who were killed have been identified. janis mackey frayer has the latest for us. janis, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the "uss fitzgerald" took a huge hit. seven sailors dead, three injured, including the captain. and a lot of questions about how and why the collision happened. the "uss fitzgerald" is badly damaged and listing. its crew, in a tight navy community here mourning the seven sailors who didn't make it. >> they're loved ones are what make our navy great. the strength of my fleet are my people. this loss is something we all feel. >> reporter: today, we know their names. their faces. among them, 19-year-old dakota kyle rigsby from palmyra, virginia. and carlosvictor sabayan from chula vista, california. who was 23. his father, a retired navy man. his mother didn't worry about
7:07 am
his son. >> he knows that whatever situation, i know he can get out of it. but this time, he wasn't given the chance. >> reporter: how an advanced warship with sophisticated equipment and a watch crew, could collide with a cargo ship more than three times its size is the focus of several investigations. there are conflicts reports about the time of the crash. and marine traffic records show the cargo ship called the "acs crystal" made a series of course changes and a u-turn before heading towards tokyo. the "fitzgerald's" captain bryce benson suffered a head injury and was airlifted from the destroyer. now, at a hospital, he is facing questions how a collision could happen in calm weather. repairs could take up to a year. the starboard side is gashed. the entire crew scrambled to keep the ship from sinking. but wouldn't save the seven lives that were lost. it's unclear how long the investigations will take.
7:08 am
japan investigators have been aboard the cargo ship that was involved. and u.s. navy officials here say they will cooperate fully. but for now, their focus, of course is on the families of the seven sailors. willie, savannah, back to you. >> that's where our thoughts are, as well. janis, thank you so much. a lot more to get to. including a u.s. warplane shooting down a syrian jet. the first of the civil war there. hans nichols, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it's really the sequencing that's among the troubling aspects of it. the syrian pro regime forces were warned not once, but twice. initially, it was a flyover as a sign of force. this is after u.s. partner forces, the sdf, our allies there, came under attack. they warned them with a flyover. and then they used the deconfliction line with the russians to say stop firing on our forces. after that warning to the russians who are in contact with
7:09 am
many of the pro-regime forces, that's when there was a jet from the syrians sent up almost immediately. an f-18 from the u.s. side shot that jet down. this isn't the first time we've been having tension between the pro-regime side and u.s. forces. earlier this month they shot down a drone, the u.s. side. real quick statement for you indicating just how serious this is. this is from centcom down in florida. the coalition does not seek to fight syrian regime. russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them. but will not hesitate to protect forces from any threat. this is a complicated part of the world that just got more complicated. >> hans at the pentagon. thank you very much. appreciate it. there's more coming up this week. president trump hosts the leader of pap panama at the white house today.

7:11 am
president trump, starting yet another week on defense, after turning from his first visit to camp david sunday. the weekend getaway didn't temper the president's anger over the expanding russia investigation. the president taking to twitter on sunday to again blast the probe as a witch hunt and touting his agenda. many new jobs, high business enthusiasm. this as mr. trump's outside counsel jay sekulow repeatedly insisted the president is not under investigation for possible obstruction of justice on the sunday shows. >> let me be very clear here as it has been since the beginning. the president is not under investigation. it's that simple. the president is not and has not been under investigation. >> reporter: but the president seemed to acknowledge he is under investigation in a tweet last week. i am being investigated, he wrote. the president's attorney saying the tweet had been taken out of context. >> he's being investigated for taking the action that the
7:12 am
attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the termination. so, that's the constitutional threshold question here. >> you just said, sir, he's being investigated. >> no, chris. i said that the -- let me be crystal clear so you completely understand. we have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the united states. >> you just said two times that he's being investigated. >> no. the context of the tweet -- i just gave you the legal theory, chris, of how the constitution works. >> reporter: democrats pouncing, including the top democrat on the house intelligence committee. >> they're essentially engaging in a scorched earth litigation strategy that's beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor. >> reporter: it's making republicans jittery. even mr. trump's staunchest allies say his tweets has gone too far. >> trump has a compulsion to counterattack and is very pugnacious. i don't think it serves him
7:13 am
well. i don't think that tweet helped him. >> the president is pretty fired up about this, okay? that said, that is not going to impede this work from continuing. >> reporter: as for whether the president is under investigation, "the washington post" and several news outlets including nbc news have confirmed special counsel robert mueller is looking into whether the president obstructed justice. the president's legal team that mr. trump has not been notified of any investigation. the white house also keeping a close eye on a special election being held tomorrow in georgia. it's the most expensive house race in united states history and viewed by some as a referendum on the president himself. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in roswell, just north of atlanta. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: the gop has dominated the district outside of atlanta for decades, it was
7:14 am
newt gingrich's old seat. but donald trump barely squeaked out a victory over hillary clinton in monday. democrats see an open and the money has been pouring in. this morning, the final stretch of what's becoming the most expensive house race ever. $40 million and counting. is this special election in georgia a referendum on donald trump? >> this election, like all elections, is about local issues and local solutions before it's about national politics. >> reporter: but many democrats see jon ossoff's campaign as much more. he's 30 years old, a documentary filmmaker and congressional aide. who is polling neck and neck with karen handel for georgia's sixth district. >> disturbingly my opponent thinks that the answer to fighting terrorism is to send a film crew to the front line. >> reporter: the businesswoman and long-time georgia politician is blasting ossoff for his out-of-state donors. >> we don't need the people of california trying to dictate who
7:15 am
our next congressman is going to be. >> reporter: president trump created the vacancy by picking congressman tom price for his cabinets. >> i'd also like to congratulate karen handel on her incredible fight in georgia sixth. >> reporter: the fight for price's seat is getting ugly. a political action committee just released a stunning new ad, trying to capitalize on last week's shooting at a republican baseball practice. >> now, the unhinged left is endorsing and applauding shooting republicans. when will it stop? it won't if jon ossoff wins on tuesday. >> reporter: both candidates have strongly denounced the ad. ossoff's campaign calling it shameful. handel's office saying it's disturbing and disgusting. president trump already tweet be about this race this morning writing, quote, the dems want to stop tax cuts good health care and border security. vote now for karen handel. willie and savannah.
