7:00 am
the day today and that will continue with these winds at 28 miles per hour. be careful of that wind today. thank you bill. thanks for starting your morning with us, good good morning, america. breaking news, hijacked. a man saying he has an explosive belt take flight with at least 55 passengers on board including americans forcing it to land in cyprus. >> some passengers and crew still held hostage at this moment. the hijacker threatening to blow up the plane as authorities try to negotiate. the race to get hostages to safety right now. and we do say good morning, america.
7:01 am
we'll take a live shot at the plane in cyprus where at least seven people are still being held hostage. negotiations with the hijacker happening right now. >> it took off from alexandria en route to cairo but diverted to cyprus after a man claimed to have an explosive belt. here's what we know as we come on the air. at least 55 passengers including a number of americans as well as seven crew members were on board the airbus a320 and as of this moment three passengers and four crew members are still being held. the white house saying they have no comment at this time. >> we're learning the hijacker is demanding to see his estranged wife and there are reports she's been brought to the airport. want to get the latest from abc news chief foreign affairs correspondent terry moran who is tracking it all from london. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning. it has been a tense morning in egypt and in cairo. just minutes ago now the foreign ministry in cyprus has officially released the name of
7:02 am
plane. seif eldin mustafa, he allegedly claimed to have a suicide belt but at this moment there's no confirmation that there are any explosives on that plane. he may have been bluffing. cyprus media is reporting mustafa's ex-wife lives in cyprus and there are reports when it landed he handed a four-page letter to officials demanding that it be delivered to his ex-wife and our ail arabiya network says he is not a terrorist. he is an idiot. but this situation is still unfolding and still very dangerous. at this hour, the tense standoff on the tarmac continues as three foreign passengers and four crew members remain on that plane. egyptair earlier saying 55 passengers, seven crew members were on board. there were initial unconfirmed reports that the hijacker may have been wearing a suicide belt.
7:03 am
arab airport. and after landing at larnaca, an unknown number of passengers were released and left the scene in buses calmly. no panic. according to flight radar it flew to the island without the pilot's signaling any trouble through their transponder. the president of cyprus said categorically this hijacking was not terrorism. then amused he suggested the motivations that the hijacker may have been a love triangle gone awry. >> it's not something which has to do with terrorism. always there is a woman involved involved. >> reporter: four months after 220 were killed on 9268 when a bomb blew up that plane just minutes after takeoff from the red sea resort of sharm el sheikh in egypt bound for russia. now urgent questions about egypt's massive security lapses at the country's airports. negotiations continue in cyprus with that hijacker. still holding hostages,
7:04 am
board that plane. this is a very tense situation and as i say, a disaster for egyptian aviation raising a lot of questions about the safety in that country. david and robin. >> all right, terry moran leading us off. terry, thank you. we want to go back to that live picture. as terry pointed out there are still seven hostages on board that plane. joining us now tv correspondent simon newton at the airport there in cyprus. and, simon, first of all, tell us what you can see. were you able to see some of plane? were being brought off. the ones i saw were brought off on foot and subsequent to that we've seen a number of people coming off with small suitcases behind them walking across the tarmac being greeted by an official and taken away so we presume that they are still inside the airport building because this whole area is now
7:05 am
no flights in or out and larnaca is as you may well know a hub for this part of the world. a lot of flights in and out of here to different parts of the middle east en route. you're seeing a picture of the aircraft on the tarmac, not moved for several hours, it's about 7:50 local time here, so at the moment these negotiations are still going on on board. we understand the captain and co-pilot, one female member of the cabin crew, one security officer is being described as a security officer perhaps what you would call in the states an air marshal of some description and three passengers and the nationalities of those passengers we don't know yet. the egyptian officials who held a press conference wouldn't speculate on what those nationalities were. >> tremendous relief for the passengers who were able to come off that plane, simon, from the pictures at least as far as we could tell they were relatively calm as they were coming off but
7:06 am
the co-pilot, a flight attendant and what we would consider here in this country an air marshal passengers. simon, there appears to be some discrepancy, what the hijacker is asking for. what do you know? >> indeed, the foreign ministry in cairo held a press conference as i mentioned some time ago. they said there were no demands being made, but here in cyprus, the president himself attended and spoke at this press conference saying it wasn't a terrorist act saying this was a domestic incident essentially, this gentleman who we are told in local sources 59-year-old egyptian wanted to see his estranged wife. these are unconfirmed sources and stress he lived in cyprus till 1994, had four children, those numbers i've got actually from the police here and that there is some domestic
7:07 am
wanted to see -- he arrived with a letter written in arabic which is, perhaps, what your correspondent mentioned. this has been given to the authorizes and in arabic and needs to be translated into greek for his wife to read. now, there's speculation about whether she has been brought to the airport to either receive that letter, i guess, or to meet this gentleman face-to-face, but standoff. there is a lot of media here as you imagine. we ourselves were moved back 500 meters. we were fairly close to the plane to start with but the security and the police have moved us back and emptied all the cafes along this end of the runway because this is very close to the shoreline, the beaches here. so we are now on a sort of road about -- >> simon newton with us. simon, stay with us. one more quick question for you, simon.
7:08 am
estranged wife is actually at the airport? >> no, i can't confirm that. that is a question that's obviously being asked. there is rumors she was being brought to the airport to, as i say, either read this letter or to meet this gentleman face-to-face as part of the negotiations. we don't know whether negotiations are taking place face-to-face or via the phone. i would imagine done via the phone but i don't know whether she's here. >> simon newton at the scene witnessing the passengers coming off that plane. >> so calmly when they were doing that. we turn to abc news correspondent and former marine fighter pilot stephen ganyard and abc news consultant and former hostage negotiator brad garrett with more on the negotiations that are unfolding right now and, brad, let me start with you because we're hearing these reports the hostage-taker has explosive firearms. how does this affect the negotiations? >> well, the real key, robin, is to connect with him to the point
7:09 am
initially. what you're trying to do is pick up intel through conversation with him, in other words, what is actually going on inside that plane. does he really have weapons? perhaps he does, perhaps he doesn't but the real key is, can you possibly give him something that he wants to disarm the situation so it ends peacefully. >> what about the speculation about his estranged wife that he is demanding to see her and it's unclear if she has been brought to the airport or not. how would that -- how would that affect the situation? >> well, it's very tricky. it's called third-party negotiation and what you don't know is the motivation of the hijacker. does he want to get somebody on the phone like his ex-wife to people? or is there some other motive? so you have to be as the negotiator you have to be extremely clear if you're going to put her on the phone with him as to what the motivation really is.
7:10 am
it might get him off and may disarm him to the point where he would walk off the plane. but that remains to be seen at this point. >> and, steven, we know from the reporting that the pilot and other crew members are still on the flight and also what we would refer to as an air marshal. what do pilots and the crew do in a situation like this, stephen? >> they comply, robin. it's not the flight crew's duty to disarm a hijacker or to get in a fight with him. if there was an air marshal on board he probably assessed the situation or got out of control before he could do something. the intent even with an air marshal is get the airplane on the ground and get it to a point where as brad's people can take over and begin negotiations. >> and hopefully resolved in a peaceful manner. stephen and brad, thank you very much. eye-opening number. there have been 50 hijackings worldwide since september 11th and joining us now with more on
7:11 am
home pierre thomas and former national counterterrorism center director matt olsen. >> u.s. authorities are watching this very closely. what are your sources telling you? there are major concerns about flights taking off from egypt and the security in place there. >> reporter: well, law enforcement officials say so far it doesn't appear to be terrorism. that much they're pretty confident of so far but it's a very fluid situation and don't yet know whether the man has explosives or not but here's the key, whether they turn out to be fake or not, the key is did he get something on board that plane that looks like an explosive belt? that would be raise very severe questions about egyptian aviation security, david. >> so let's bring in matt because you heard pierre say unclear whether or not he actually has a suicide vest but authorities particularly in this climate around the world have no choice but to take him at his world. >> yeah, that's exactly right and, you know, we go back to the downing of the russian airplane
7:12 am
you know, obviously there are real concerns about aviation security in egypt but also in other places in the middle east, so regardless of whether or not this is a real device, there have to be real concerns raised at this point about security there. >> all right, matt olsen and pierre thomas, thanks to you and the entire team. we'll stay on it to bring you details as soon as they come in. to the latest on the shooting and lockdown at the capitol. a suspect drawing what appeared to be a gun before officers took him down. authorities learning more about who he is and abc's david kerley is on capitol hill with the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning. the visitor center under this plaza will re-open after those moments of shooting and fear and the suspect can in the hospital with a gunshot wound. it was chaos in the capitol's visitors center. americans told to flee after gunshots. katherine left was one of those
7:13 am
all of a sudden hell broke loose. just police with guns drawn. people running and screaming. >> shots reported in the capitol visitors sen terror. >> reporter: the entire capitol on lockdown. tourists fleeing and staffers barricading doors and police out on force. going through security first at the visit ser center is where at 2:39 according to police larry dawson moving through security pulls whatting looks like a gun. >> he drew what appeared to be a weapon and pointed at officers. an officer fired and struck the suspect. >> reporter: the suspect known to capitol police. he was transported to a hospital for surgery. it was last october that dawson of tennessee disrupted the house chamber yelling he was a prophet of god. >> i'm a prophet of god. >> reporter: dawson was under orders to stay away from the capitol. his truck was found on the grounds after the shooting. now, there was a bystander who was wounded.
7:14 am
she is okay, a weapon was recovered, david, turns out it was a pellet gun that the man was apparently carrying. >> incredible and the fear for so many parents who brought their children to the capitol for spring break. david, thanks for that. now to the latest on those belgium terror attacks. a major setback. police releasing a suspect they thought could be the third airport bomber seen in this surveillance video that's now been released wearing that hat. abc's alex marquardt has the latest for us this morning. alex, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, david. the man who had been charged with terrorist murder in connection with these attacks has been released. his lawyer this morning saying that the investigation was completely off track meaning that the main suspect in these attacks is still very much at large. this morning, he is one of the most wanted men in europe, the man in the hat seen in that surveillance video strolling through the brussels airport with the two suicide bombers moments before the blast went off. it seemed the authorities thought he was this man, faycal cheffou, arrested on thursday
7:15 am
terrorist murder in connection with the brussels attacks. now cheffou has been released. the judge saying there wasn't enough evidence to hold him. in doing so likely conceding that cheffou is not the man in the black hat. we went to meet him after his release from jail at his mother's apartment. mr. cheffou -- [ speaking a foreign language ] he invites us to come upstairs. but at the door seeing our camera, a change of heart. angrily angrily shouting at us to get out. this morning, cheffou's lawyer told belgian tv his cell phone activity shows he was at home during the brussels attacks. this as new video emerges of the paris attackers ibrahim and el bakraoui partying in a club nine months before at tacks. those brothers from the
7:16 am
we've now heard so much about and this morning a disturbing text message an official from molenbeek showed us from jihadist recruiters to young men in the neighborhood calling on them to make the right choices and fight the westerners. robin. >> all right, alex, thank you. now to politics. republican candidates donald trump and ted cruz on the campaign trail battling over votes and whether or not they should debate. abc's jon karl has the latest from washington. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today the battle for the republican nomination moves to wisconsin where ted cruz believes he can finally stop donald trump's momentum. campaigning in central wisconsin overnight, ted cruz challenged donald trump to a one-on-one debate. >> donald, why don't you show up and debris like a man? i recognize that donald prefers to communicate in 140 characters or less. >> reporter: trump was quick to respond on twitter.
7:17 am
have already beaten you in all debates. >> ted is a very concerned puppy because he's losing big. i've got hundreds of delegates more than him. i've got millions of votes more than him. >> reporter: trump and cruz trade barbs, long shot john kasich is hoping for a wisconsin breakthrough. trying to stay above the fray. criticizing both of them for insulting muslims. >> you know what this is, the voice of inexperience, amateur hour. it's what it is. >> reporter: trump called in to one of wisconsin's top conservative talk radio shows and got an earful from the host, a cruz supporter. >> i didn't start it. he started it. if he didn't start it, it would have never happened. nothing like this would have ever happened. >> we're not on a playground. we're running for president of the united states. >> i agree with that 100% and my views are not playground views. >> reporter: overnight president obama said the ugly campaign is an embarrassment on the world stage. >> the number one question i'm getting as i travel around the world or talk to world leaders
7:18 am
in america? and it's not because around the world people have not seen crazy politics. it is that they understand america's the place where you can't afford completely crazy politics. >> reporter: the top aide to john kasich confirms to abc news that kasich is seeking to team up with cruz to deny trump the delegates he needs to clinch the nomination, was even trying to get mitt romney to be involved in the effort. the cruz team, though, says they are not interested in teaming up with kasich. robin, david. >> all right, john, thank you. we turn to rob with wind causing major problems on both coasts. >> yeah, a lot of wind especially across the northeast. this is damage out of yonkers, winds gusting to 58 miles an hour. near 50 miles an hour at jfk and these pictures out of san

[ cheers and applause ] >> how are you? thank you so much. >> how are you? >> doing wonderful. >> please, please. >> nice to see you, thank you, robin. >> there's no applause sign. that's coming from the heart. no applause sign. we changed our state. we changed our state like this. >> i see that. >> that's what you're about. you have inspired so many
8:35 am
where does that come from? where did that begin with you? >> pain. >> yeah. >> i grew up in a pretty tough environment and my mom loved me dearly and i have a younger brother, younger sister but she abused alcohol and prescription drugs and was very violent so i became a practical psychologist to figure that out. since i suffered so much i didn't want anybody else to suffer. >> you have changed people's lives from all walks of life. oprah talked about how your howerhow er hower -- power is superhuman and bring out the best in us and the catalyst of change. why do you think that is. >> i think part of it is 38 year, going on my 39th year with people from 100 countries around the world. 50 million people so at this point i could be an idiot and see there are patterns that make peep depressed and patterns that make you fulfilled and joyous and connected and grateful so nobody is broken. nobody needs to be fixed but we have patterns that get in the way and i know how to change it.
8:36 am
departure talking about money and the financial word and there's something in 2008 you were angry with what you were seeing and wanted to help people. >> when i saw people losing half of all they owned in the stock market or losing their hopes during that time it wasn't a statistic and i had a unique gift is pose people don't know for 22 years i coached a man named paul tudor jones, one of the top ten financial traders in the world and coach him every day and has not lost money in 22 years. no one else can say that in his category so i learned a lot and if i interviewed 50 of the smartest people and figured out is it possible for the average person to still win this game in a stock market where 70% of the trades are done by high frequency traders an the answer is you can still win. >> what's the biggest mistake we make. >> everybody spends so much so we have no money to invest and the real reason we don't invest we don't understand the power of compounding. there is a gentleman named theodore johnson. he never made more than $14,000 a year at u.p.s. as a driver of
8:37 am
and gave away 35 million and all that happened, a friend of his said i want to put a 20% tax on you. he said, the government gave you 20% tax, you'd scream and yell. we'll put that upon aside and keep reinvesting. that's the power of compounding. and then the other one, though, is getting the wrong advice which is why i wrote the book. i went to the best on earth. none of this is my advice. it's the 50 smartest people in the world, the warren buffetts and carl icahns but getting the right advice and i promote a fiduciary standard, an "f" word. what it means is most people giving you advice are brokers, they're good people but they're selling for the house and the house always wins. if you get a fiduciary, i.a. that's a person legally required to put your needs first. if they tell you buy apple and their stock. planning. go to and work with millionaires and billionaires and take care of
8:38 am
convinced them to bring it down to any family with $50,000 and give a second opinion. it'll cost you nothing and can implement yourself. >> say it again, creative -- >> creativeplanningnet. andre, what's your question. >> i have a friend in a negative emotional place for two or three years now and i want to know how to help him because you helped me when i read your book and i want to know how to help them through the same process. >> you know, parents say this to me also about their kids all the time and we all want to help everybody else but the most powerful way is to help yourself first. i lost 38 pounds and i kept it off for 25 years, went fro broke to financially free so it's hard to help somebody else when you haven't lived it. the way you can do that, we've all met somebody -- haven't you met somebody who sucks the energy out of the building. you have people that walk in, you feel lifted by their presence, right? somebody who, you know, thinks they're funny but not and crack
8:39 am
own state, getting yourself to not suffer is really valuable so i thought, you know, if you give me two minutes let's do something really fast. i'll show you something simple. something. anybody at home as well. that stresses you, some unfinished business and may be something upsets you or frustrated about or you need to do something about but you keep putting it off and who knows what i'm talking about? so think of something, though, on a zero to ten scale that maybe is a seven of upset or more, eight, nine, ten, three or four it's not as valuable. do it fast. let's try it. understand when you're stressed you're not going to help your partner. when you're feeling their pain you can't help them. when you're stressed your heart and brain if i could show you an eeg, ekg they look jagged and don't look anything like each other. if you breathe in your heart 2 two minutes, breathe deep in your heart, actually physically feel and those at home can do this as well like the oxygen in
8:40 am
heart and as you're doing it for two minutes we'll do less than two minutes i want you to think of three things you're grateful for but step in like you're there not watching the roller coaster, imagine you're going over the edge, stop just for a moment, breathe deep in your heart, physically feel your heart heart, and then think of one of those things stepping it like you're there for a moment. breathe it, feel it. feel so grateful. when you're grateful there's no anger. when you're grateful there's no fear. think of another one you're grateful for. really feel it. step in. hear, feel, see. and then one more. and enjoy it like really take in the blessing of that moment. the gift of that moment. and then while you're still breathing in your heart, i want to you think of the thing that was upsetting you at a seven or above but keep breathing in your heart. keep feeling this feeling of gratitude and just answer this question. all i need to remember in that
8:41 am
on, all i need to do is what? but keep breathing in your heart. all i need to remember, all you need to focus on, all i really need to do is what? in your heart knows the answer. raise your hand if you know what to do right now. >> i do. >> look around the group and what is it? is it 100% and that was two minutes, so if you put yourself in that place, go ahead and have a seat. >> i was able to do it with someone yelling in my ear to wrap. if i could do that being told to wrap, we do need to go and we need to say all your proceeds go where. >> they go to feeding america. we've fed 102 million. [ applause ] >> all right. and everybody here is getting a book. everybody here is getting a book. [ cheers and applause ] >> so great to see. >> you great to see you. >> go outside to rob. >> great to see you healthy and strong. >> thank you so much. check out this, i got to show it.
