two leaders appeared at a joint media conference. hollande said they had agreed to intensify u.s.-led coalition attacks on isis and significantly only target isis, but in a complete about-turn today, rusch's presidential spokesman denied the deal and saying they were not ready to work in a single coalition. here in belgium, police continue their manhunt for two paris suspects after five days of police station raids, they are no closer to finding salah abdeslam and mohammed abrin inchts are still on the run. not just france and belgium dealing with the implications of the paris attacks. in germany, a man was arrested on suspicion of selling weapons to the paris gunman. two germans were arrested. but as has become the familiar pattern, they were released quickly without being charged. >> debora patta in brussels, thank you. this morning, "the new york times" says donald trump went

news." kovaleski told "the washington post" it didn't surprise me that donald trump would do something this low-rent, given his track record. trump has demanded an apology from "the new york times" and said that if he had known kovaleski was disabled, he quote, definitely would not say anything about his appearance, but kovaleski spoke to a fellow "times" reporter yesterday and told him he and trump were on a first-name basis for years. don? >> nancy, thank you very much. pope francis received a rock star welcome this morning when he arrived to address a stadium full of young people in kenya. earlier, he visited one of nairobi's vast slum areas. today, he is heading to uganda. sunday he'll travel to the war ravaged central african republic. allen pizzey is traveling with >> reporter: the pope began his last day in kenya the place he

go on without you. you might expect delays and some bags removed from planes that people didn't show up. >> other than packing your patience, what can people do to survive the long security lines? >> one of the things i've always done and tsa argues with me i'm wrong about this but my experience tells you i'm not. on any day of the week, not just holiday period if you get to a security line, two security lines and most people would choose the shortest. no. go for the number of tsa agents standing at that monitor at the bags. i don't care how long that lining is, choose that guy. two guys there they are training every one of them and every bag will be stopped three minutes and the line will not move. >> let's talk about air fare. has what happened in paris and other places impacted the air fare here in the u.s.? >> in the u.s., no. u.s. air fares right now are low than thanksgiving. they will stay low. but overseas, those fares collapsed. because you saw complete
collapse in the actual new bookings and also can sellcel >> we don't have much time left. how has the terror attacks in paris affected travel to france for tourism? >> well, bottom line is short-term booking is down but paris is a very resilient place in terms of u.s. interests and that is coming back and now starting to stabilize. >> the number one destination worldwide. >> it's 7% of their gdp and they are not messing around. they need us back. with the holidays underway we are facing a deluge of seasonal commercials. frank lund will show us what retailers need to do to grab our attention. if you're heading out the door, set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time you want.

the best television ads are run. the truth is the ads that matter the most run just before thanksgiving and up to christmas and that is where, in some cases, a majority of all retail sales happen. and what you just saw for hallmark is a wonderful ad. a family experience and we are used to the famous family photo. if you listen closely to the dialogue, the funny comments that happen, even that gentleman who is leading it, the son who says, this may be grandma's last photo, it's funny and it's poignant and it puts hallmark not just looking backward as something that we remember with fondness, but looking towards the future with humor. the best ad so far. >> we see something we recognize. >> the grandmother really stole the show. we have a walmart ad, frank, with an actor, craig robinson. let's take a look at that too.

xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . there's only one egg that just tastes better. with 10 times more vitamin e. and twice the omega 3s. because why have ordinary when you can have the best. only eggland's best. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs.

it wasn't a robbery and the couple had no enemies. >> there was nothing taken. no jewelry, no electronics. >> reporter: what did that say to you? >> this is a crime meant to be seen as an assassination. >> reporter: the killer's identity shocked everyone. he was a teen from a local high school, david biro. he had psychological issues and had bragged to friends that he had committed the perfect crime. >> they were chosen as victims less than who they were but where they lived. >> so ironic it's a kid from the neighborhood. >> reporter: biro charged with murder and pled not guilty. at his 1991 trial, biro insisted that friend was the killer but a jury didn't buy it and he was found guilty. amazingly, jeanne forgave david biro. >> i think here is what my knorr forgiveness was like. i forgive you and wiping you off my hands like dirt. >> reporter: then 22 years after
the murders, jeanne took the remarkable step of writing to biro. incredibly, he responded with an astonishing admission. >> he wrote, i am guilty of killing your sister nancy and her husband richard. i also want to take this opportunity to express my deepest condolences and apologize to you. and i started to cry. >> reporter: that launched jeanne on a journey. she had to find out why biro had committed the murders. >> i'm in front of pontiac prison where i come to visit the person who killed my family members. i knew the first time i went there to see him in that prison that i would be shaking the hand of the killer that held the gun. >> reporter: and this has led to an incredible change of heart. you believe he deserves a second chance? he deserves an opportunity? >> yes. >> reporter: to perhaps get out? >> yes. >> maureen maher is here with us. thank you for being here.
jeanne says she wants david biro to have a second chance. how likely is that? >> it's actually a very good chance that he might get at least a reduced sentence. in 2012, supreme court had a major ruling that ruled mandatory life in prison without parole for juveniles is cruel and unusual punishment. that is when he was a juvenile and he was sentenced to that. now going forward, you can't do that. but there are a list of a dozen and a half states have ruled that as retroactive and that includes him so 80 cases in illinois alone where they will be resentenced. he could get life again, he could get a reduced sentence, or he could walk. >> how often has she visited him in jail? >> she has been there dozens of times and what she told us is regardless if he gets out or not, a relationship will continue and if he stays in, she will continue to go down and visit him. >> wow. devastating story. maureen, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. >> you can watch her full report "road to redemption" tomorrow night on "48 hours" right here on cbs 10:00/9:00 central.

friend, my everything. he was my encouragement. he is still my encouragement. >> reporter: encouragement that constance says will keep her working out. crossfit has changed you physically. >> mentally, spiritually. when my husband died and the word spread, in my wildest dreams, i never thought they would be there with me, and they there were with me to his grave site and they are still with me and they will be with me until i leave here. south brooklyn crossfit is my children, and i mean it from the bottom of my heart. >> beautiful. >> get up and do it! love that. >> i met an 87-year-old woman who was doing -- she is a bodybuilder and she is out there doing it. same issues. trying to stay healthy.

good morning. 8:55 on this friday, november 27th. i'm diane macedo. police are investigating a deadly crash on the grand central parkway in queens. two people were killed when their car slammed into a truck that was stopped on the side of the road near 3 1st street. police say speed could have been a factor. also this morning an investigation is underway into a deadly hit-and-run crash that led to a dangerous get away attempt in east new york. last night police arrested the man accused of hitting and killing a 56-year-old woman who was trying to get into her car on pennsylvania avenue. the suspect is now identified as a 24-year-old. the victim has been identified. police say he caused a chain
reaction crash involving three cars while trying to get away. nine people were hurt in the collision. the suspect then took off on foot before he was arrested. charges are now penning. many charities in places of worship served up some thanksgiving meals yesterday. but one church in harlem did that with an upscale twist. the church on west 116th street looked more like a restaurant. the food cooked by volunteers was served just like at a restaurant complete with table cloth, menus and wait staff. and now the forecast. >> a really nice day on tap now that the clouds are clearing and the fog is as well. but a quick look at the u.s. temperatures and cooler temperatures of course across the northwest. and that temperature looking more favorable along the eastern seaboard. new york currently at 5 7 degrees. still seeing some light fog moving across the area. again, improving as that sunshine starts to sneak through. and 63 locally. that's the average expected high for today.
