>> axelrod: tonight a big week, meets a big storm, slow ice and rain blanket it is southwest and the system slowly moves east, just as we hit the busiest travel week of the year. less than 24-hours after an historic nuclear agreement with iran, the feedback comes from around the world. reports. brennanhe the vatican revives a 2000-year- old mystery, publicly unveiling the bones of a saint. alan pizzey is in rome. and the bookless library, the look of future in one city's

6:02 pm
accidents, in oklahoma more than a foot of snow has fallen and this storm is horribly. >> hardly over. >> the storm is heading east and for more on what it is going to do we will join eric fisher from the boston station wbz. >> wbz. >> eric what is next? >> i tell you a lot of folks will be affected by this storm as it continues east, many winter storm warnings and advisory spreading into western parts of mississippi, there will be ice city travel and snowy travel here as we head through the day on monday. then the storm becomes a little bit more about rain in the gulf coast. as this moves along and picks up a lot of moisture, the i-10 corridor, late monday into tuesday, airports like atlanta and charlotte, jackson and new orleans will be the ones to watch, and the i 85 corridor as the rain moves up the coast, wednesday, the big travel day, it is right along the east coast, this is an inside track storm, the center coming very close to new york city, which means it is mainly all rain along the east coast but interior snow, we are watching western new york, western pa in
6:03 pm
particular and this is where there could be a heavy wet snow, as much as six to 12 inches, the threat there would be bringing downpour lines and trees and certainly pretty messy travel on a very busy day. >> jeff. >> glor: eric fisher from wbz, thank you. quick and continuing reaction today after a nuclear deal was reached with iran late last night. in exchange for progress back, rolling back its nuclear program iran gets an easing of many sanctions but it is not a long- term deal, margaret brennan in london has the fine print. >> reporter: applause and relief, near 4:00 a.m. in geneva, and even a hug from secretary of state john kerry. he spoke to cbs news after a marathon 24-hour session of talks. >> we will now be able to have greater inspection, greater knowledge, greater restraint and that will expand the amount of time that it would take for them to break out and create a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: under the six-month deal, iran agreed to destroy its
6:04 pm
stockpile of weapons grade uranium. reduce its nuclear fuel and gives inspectors daily instpections to select nuclear facilities. in exchange, iran will get $7 billion in financial relief, most of that through limited oil sales. sanctions on autos, gold and chemicals will also be lifted. speaking after the deal was announced, president obama warned iran that they must comply. >> and if iran does not fully meet its commitments during the six-month phase, we will turn off the relief and ratchet up the pressure. >> reporter: skeptics including the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu slammed the deal, calling it a historic mistake that would allow iran to get closer to making a bomb. there is also bipartisan criticism of the deal coming from exam hill, den see republican bob corker spoke to fox news. >> and if you see the reaction in iran right now, i mean they are spiking the football in the end zone saying that look, we
6:05 pm
consolidated our gains, we have relieved sanctions, we are going to have the right to enrich. >> reporter: secretary kerry dismissed that and said iran will have to back up its words with action. are you skeptical that iran will actually comply with the deal they just signed? >> i think everybody has a right to be skeptical, because there are indications that there are people in iran who have wanted to pursue a weapons program, that there have been secret facilities buildings under those efforts towards that program, and so there is lots of reason that's why we don't take anything at face value. >> reporter: and now the hard part begins, the u.s. and its allies have about six months to monitor iran's progress and to hammer out the terms of a more complete deal. now, iran has incentives there, there are about $100 billion in assets sitting frozen in accounts that they want access to, and today president obama spoke with the israeli prime minister and said he wants the two countries to work together to make sure that iran complies with the deal and that they do
6:06 pm
not obtain a nuclear weapon. margaret brennan, thank you. >> glor: for more information on this deal now we are joined in london by elizabeth palmer who has reported extensively from inside iran, liz what is the world reaction you are hearing tonight? >> reporter: well, let's begin with inside iran, when the iranian nuclear negotiating feel arrived back at the table on their report, it was greeted by a cheering crowd of mostly young people who are very happy with the deal, happy with thawing relations with relations where the west and the currency gained some strength overnight but behind the scenes, we should be very aware that there are hard- liners that are bitterly opposed to this deal inside iran and see it as a setoff to the west and think it threatens the security of the islamic republic. america has managed to anger two
6:07 pm
of its staunchest allies in the region with this agreement, one is israel, as margaret mentioned earlier, the other is saudi arabia, which is worried about iran growing stronger and exercising more influence in the region. but mostly around the world countries are pleased and think there is not much of a down side to freezing iran's nuclear program, that will make the world a more stable place, and china, india and japan have a special reason for being pleased, this deal freezes the sanctions, there won't be anymore sanctions applied and that means they can carry on buying and burning iran's oil. >> glor: lis palmer, thank you. it has been almost a year since the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, 20 children and six adults were killed, tomorrow the state zero attorney releases a new report on what happened. here is don dahler. >> reporter: in the 11th months since the newtown tragedy, connecticut state attorney interviewed dozens of people and investigated every second of what happened that day. one area of focus is police response, whether procedures were followed and if they were effective.
6:08 pm
>> 6-7 at school, caller indicates they think there is someone shooting in the building. >> reporter: the first 911 call came in just before 9:36 the first officer arrived a minute and a half later, the officers were inside the school at 9:44. through interviews with officers and examining tape recordings of the body microphones many were wearing the report is expected to give a clear timeline of events but not necessarily make recommendations. connecticut senator richard bloominghall. what do you expect this report to reveal that isn't already known? >> this report will be a very factual, straightforward recitation of facts that reveal the atrocity and i hope creates and additional momentum for gun violence prevention.
6:09 pm
>> reporter: in the past year many school districts nation wide have beefed up security, but federal efforts to establish background checks for violent purchases that could limit access for the mentally ill have gone nowhere. >> i think that school security has to be improved, that will be a lesson of the report, and of course longer term mental health initiatives. what could have been done to reach out, adam lanza before he committed this horrible act. >> dennis hockley's mother nicole told scott pelley one thing will never be known. >> i would love to know why, but i think that is a question that is never going to be answered and i don't expect that to be in the police report. we will never know what went on in that shooter's mind. >> the report will be released monday afternoon. >> don dahler, cbs news, stanford, connecticut. >> glor: for the first time the vatican put on public display bone fragments believed to be the remains of st. peter the founding pope, allen pizzey was there. >> reporter: the sacred relics were brought to the altar in a
6:10 pm
recession to mark the end of the year of the faithful, the fragments were with in a jewel box inside a bronze display case. pope francis prayed before the bones at the start of the service, and later clutched the box in his arms for several minutes. it is an act father geno silva of new jersey says is integral to the catholic faith. >> we believe that when we venerate the relics, what we really do is we honor the saints who helped us grow in living with christian virtues that faith involves. >> reporter: the bones were found during an 11 year expedition under st. peter's basilica that led to an announcement in 1950 that the apostle's tomb had been found, graffiti written in ancient freak was interpreted as meaning peter is here. in 1968, pope paul the sixth said the bones are being identified in a way that we believe to be convincing, but scientific tests prove only they belong to a robust man who died in his sixties. >> reporter: peter is called the rock upon which christ founded
6:11 pm
his church on earth, and in the last year alone more than eight and a half million pilgrims visited his tomb. st. peter's basilica was built to honor the place for the man considered to be the first pope was crucified in the year 1624 ad. >> 66 pope, a st. that you can imagine. >> allen pizzey, cbs news, vatican city. >> later the man who is steak ago claim in the creation of a new slice of beef. >> >> reporter: so it would be, you are like christopher columbus in the steak world? you just discovered this incredible new thing? >> glor: and on how churches may have saved people from a tornado. when the cbs evening news continues.
