the connector ramp, so if you are commuting in this area a car over turned that is why they had to shut down the connector ramp they have to completely clear it from the freeway. in the meantime if you are coming down westbound 80 you will find the warning signs, suggesting alter fifth routes but use eastbound -- alternate routes, but you can use eastbound 80 to westbound 90. chp was working a fatal accident happened overnight in our 2:00 p.m. hour, near san pablo dam road everything is now cleared to the right shoulder but the coroner is still on scene there may still be activity on the on ramp to san pablo dam road sounds like the off ramp is completely reopened. >> also commuting through fairfield this is our third accident chp is working on right now westbound 80 air base parkway, one lane the left lane is still blocked again it has not caused any delays for the start the very early start of

from newark to san francisco we will have that story a little later on from union city, kit doe is standing by with that. but elsewhere this morning, we have learned that turkey has temporarily shut down its embassy in tripoli, turkey's foreign minister said the compound has been evacuated because of deteriorating security this weekend there were attacks on british and italian embassies in the libyan capital. >> live to pakistan right outside their capital and talk with cnm reporter. now in islamabad thank you for joining us what is the reaction there? >> reporter: well, obviously across pakistan, people are quite stunned this is a man who sha shadowed this country for the past decade al qaeda has been responsible for several attacks that have taken place in pakistan including two attacks on a former president
and possibly to the assassination to the pre her in 2007. this is quite a legacy. there appears some signs of sympathy to osama bin laden and al qaeda, although i have talked to senior high ranking officials and there is also a sense of relief. this is a figure who has been obviously -- this is a mild stone moment end of a legacy osama bin laden finally killed. >> let me ask you, osama bin laden was killed in a suburb of outside the capital were people surprised he was living so close to the capital and right in that area? >> reporter: well, i know the suburb -- the word suburb has been used but the city is 2 hours driving distance
fromislamabad so it is not really on the edge. a will the of people were quite surprised because for a long time the assumption was that osama bin laden if ever nailed down, if found would most likely be in a border region, close to the afghan boarders and therefore his discovery in a city which also holds the pakistani militaries main training academy has come as a bit of a surprise and to many as a bit of a shock as well. and let me ask you this, frank mallicoat checking in what about the relationship between the two countries, u.s. and pakistan they were strained because of some of the bombing of some of the military efforts that were going on in that region but now that osama bin laden, some body had to know he was right outside that capital city is this going to cause an even bigger rift between the u.s. and pakistan because he was so close in islam ma bad.
>> well, that is a very valid question although officials from both sides i believe are already working on a way to make certain, that this relationship does not slip out of control. that is what i have been told by fairly high ranking pakistani officials but this will raise many questions for the pakistanies, osama bin laden discovered 60, 70 miles from the capital city of islam ma bad will raise many questions, how did he get to this place, how long was he there in this very well fortified compound and exactly what were the circumstances in which the u.s. discovered his where abouts, his presence at this place, and whether the u.s. tracked him down on its own without any assistance from pakistan those are questions that are likely to be asked in the coming hours and in deed the coming days. in islam ma bad with cbs thank you for taking the time to join us today.
