there's probably a 15-minute wait to get there. and there's also a little bit of a line at the check-out counter. this morning we did see some san francisco police patrolling the terminal. san francisco police say their officers are being extra aware and vigilant had light of any suspicious actty. they might be seeing. however, the airport spokespersons say the overall support have not received any special instructions from the tsa to step up security here. however, some passengers that we talked to this morning say they are relieved to hear the news of binned bin -- of bin laden's death. >> i feel more secure today. >> reporter: you mean flying? >> yeah. i think his whole network has
been weakened. >> reporter: while the security level is relatively low, it's been different in new york, d.c., newsroom, l.a. if you are flying to those -- new jersey, l.a., if you are flying to those airports, you will notice higher security. well, many bay area people who have lost loved ones on 9/11 are reacking -- reacting. this man has been waiting ten years to hear the news. >> i never had a doubt. i think justice is served in any life. >> his wife was a victim on the

let's move along and take a a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. you get the picture. it's backed up for about 15- minute delay. and this moving in san francisco, it looks pretty good, northbound 101 that traffic is moving well, a little bit later this morning, maybe they stuck around to watch a little bit of the news which might be expected because the commute is a little bit late this morning. let's go to steve? >> sal, thank you. it's still sunny, but not as warm. if it's may we must be talking about fog. it's shallow. it's there and also for you allergy sufferers, the pollen is favoring the -- favoring the trees. our cooldown today is associated with a weak system but it doesn't make much, but

many people are offjoyed but at the same time they -- overjoyed but at the same time they thought this day would never arrive. osama bin laden was at the top of the most-wanted list. but now his picture shows a bright red "deceased" label at the bottom. the post advertised a $27 million reward. no word on who might be in line for a money. we're talking more about the secret intelligence that led to the capture of washington, d.c. alison burns is live with the latest briefings in both the white house and the pentagon. >> reporter: dave, new this hour we've just learned that we will hear from president obama again today during a midway event at the white house and during an address to congressional leaders tonight. the white house is providing us with a -- with a detailed account of how this
investigation unfolded -- unfolded. in august of last year, u.s. intelligence operatives identified the compound in pakistan where they believe osama bin laden's curier lived. they certain -- courier lived. they soon learned he could be living there and then president obama began a series of high- level meetings to capture or kill bin laden this last friday before he went to see the damage in alabama, he authorized the killing of osama bin laden and then the team of forces raided the compound and shot bin laden in the head. just about 45 minutes ago, secretary of state, hillary clinton, said the fight will not end with bin laden's death. >> i know there are some who doubted this day would ever come and would questioned our resolve and reach. but let us remind ourselves,
this is america, we rise to the challenge. we persevere and we get the job done. >> president obama did not notify any other world leaders before osama bin laden was killed. reporting live from washington, d.c., alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:16. on the economy watch, news of osama bin laden's death is impacting stocks. pam cook is in the newsroom with more reaction from the markets. >> it's very interesting to see the reaction in the financial markets. with my financial background i looked right away when the announcement was made that osama bin laden was killed and the futures all independent kateed a pretty good rally across the board, but they did come back quite a bit overnight. want too take a look at the big board -- want to take a look at the big board. here is a list of how the markets are doing right now, the dow jones, nasdaq and s&p
500 all posting pretty good gain. we've been keeping an eye on europe. the european market steadily increasing. up about .14 for most of the major indexes. overnight, european markets rallied quite a bit. japan 'nikkei closed at 1.25%. p what -- now, what this does, it takes some of the uncertainty out of the market because many world leaders are saying the threat of terrorism has gone down with the -- with the death of osama bin laden. and they don't like uncertainty. so that's the positive rea
action from the financial market the around the world. we're still following overnight news coming from fremont. very sensetation at a strip mall ended just a -- tense situation at a strip mall ended just a little while ago. there were no signs of a bomb but police sealed off the mall on christie street for several hours. police say that man is in custody now and he has serious mental problems. we have new virginia from an early-morning fire in san leandro, now this happened at a gardening supply store. it's on east 14th street. firefighters rushed their shortly before 2:00 a.m. they say part of the roof collapsed. no firefighters were hurt. the store evener showed up and said it appears an electrical problem triggered the fire. a man who stabbed another man on an ac transit bus in richmond, police are telling

in the country and use them. >> everyone we spoke to seemed relieved, even happy that american forces had killed the world's most-wanted terrorist. a 33-year-old man in pakistan posted late-night messages on his twitter page about helicopters flying overhead at the same time u.s. forces will attacking osama bin laden's compound. apparent lit man had no idea he was documenting the u.s. military attack that's killing osama bin laden. he speculated that since the helicopters did not appear to be pakistani, there must be a complicated situation going on. >> so he was tweeting history as it was happening. >> right. exactly. he was correct. there was a complicated
situation. 7:24. sal is following a complicated situation. a crash. what happened? >> 23rd and mission. a mother driving with her young infant son ran into a fire hydrant and injuries are severe. one person is clinging to life. we're told that's the infant son who is in grave condition at san francisco general hospital. this car, this is why they've been taking so long to investigate. it's unclear why it came up on that fire hydrant but the street has been closed down for hours. muni is being rerouted. the tow truck is there. it looks like they may be getting ready to take the car away. let's take a look at the toll plaza, westbound. about a 15-minute wait. a lot of people are wait on the commute. maybe people were staying at home longer to watch news because earlier we didn't have any backup and it became
heavier now. northbound 880 traffic is busy. let's go to steve. sunshine for many. but fog is back on south. it's moving to the san mateo coastline. it's also on the marin coatline and then heading -- coastline, and there it is. the coastal fog, it's come back. it's shallow. it's there. also the system moving into the north of us, it will usher in a little cooler pattern. that's a chill in the morning air. livermore, 45. now, mountain view that's at moffet, 54. you -- you go over 101, closer to town, it's probably 49 off 50. that little low right near portland. that's the one that's giving us our westerly or southwesterly breezy. sunny, cooler today even though we'll have a difference of
about 20 degrees. over the coastal hills, still some upper 70s or low 80s. tomorrow we learn that -- we turn that into a north breeze and we warm up 90 for most. a cooldown on friday and a big cooldown as we go into the weekend. the death of osama bin laden has prompted celebrations around the world. one of the biggest is at ground zero. we'll have live coverage from new york city. and we're gauging reaction from one of the largest afghan communities in the united states. that story is live. also, take a look at this picture, this will probably win an award. the picture shot in times square. you see the firefighters looking up at the news ticker that reads "osama bin laden is dead."
a small team of americans carried out the operation. no americans were harmed. they took care to avoid civilian casualties. after a firefight, they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. >> that, of course, is president obama last night announcing the killing of osama bin laden. during his speech, the
president said bin laden was not a muslim leader. the president stressed the united states is not at war with muslim. [ cheers ] >> that was the singing of request the -- singing of "the star spangled banner" from people gathering outside the white house after the announcement of the death of osama bin laden. newspapers around the world are displaying similar headlines. we took video this morning of international papers reporting on the death of america's most- wanted terrorist. although some appear celebratory in tone or at the very least neutral, others,
such as the jerusalem post condemn the asat nation of a man also called a holy warier. afghanistan has been the main focus on the war on -- of the war on terror. ktvu jade hernandez is getting reaction on bin laden's death from fremont. good morning, jade. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. we're live in fremont. we watched as people arrived to class this morning. one person we spoke to says she hopes no one replaces binned len. >> with even what happens in the middle east, there's always retaliation -- okay. they can always bring another leader up. other hope is to always hope it doesn't go that way and we want to make sure the message gets out that this is -- one man's
actions are definitely not the view of the whole community and that's not how we feel. >> reporter: fremont does have the largest afghan population in the united states. this is the islamic center. right next door is the little kabul market and within this strip mall along thornton avenue at the very end of it is the almadena education center, another nonprofit education center. about ten minutes here in fremont is another one which pushes understanding between muslims and the united states. the director says "the major chapter on the war on -- of the war on terror with the death of osama bin laden, we hope for a better dialogue between the u.s. and the muslim world." he goes on to say this war has lost millions of dollars and a lot of loss of life, including
those servicemembers. that message is from the service director. we're live in fremont gauging reaction from largest afghan community here in the united states. jade hernandez, ktvu channel 2 news. with osama bin laden dead, there's now speculation on who will take over the lead in al qaeda. i i i man al heir rarecy is -- it's speck -- a al-hiri is thought to be one. and we learned overnight that osama bin laden's body was buried at sea. a u.s. official speaking anonymously said finding a country willing to accept bin laden's remains would have been
difficult. according to islam, burial at sea is permitted in certain circumstances such as a long voyage where the body may decay and the risk that enemies may dig up the grave and mutilate the body. islamic tradition also call for burial to happen within 24 hours of death. although the 4-hour rule has not always been done by the u.s. just a day after president obama authorized the operation to kill osama bin laden, the world's most wanted terrorist was actually the butt of a joke. >> people think bin laden is hiding in the hindu kuch. but -- but did you know that every day from 4:00 to 5:00, he hosts a show on c-span." that was seth miers. >> as you saw there, president obama had laughed at the joke.
now we know he will already given the order to kill bin laden. a suspected drunk driver hit a woman in her front yard. drivers say the woman jumped the sidewalk, pinned the woman to home and took off. it happened on snell avenue yesterday morning. victim identified as 79-year- old diana punsack later died at the hospital. >> just a beautiful day -- lady. she knew everyone around here. everyone knew her. police arrested the driver and three passengers. police say alcohol was involved. 7:36. well, pg&e could begin high- pressure testing on pipelines in two bay area cities as early as this week.
they are gonna use pressurized water to test whether everything is structurally sound. pg&e says the tests thud shot -- should not disrupt service. 7:36. let's check in -- let's check in again with sal castanedo. >> it's busy. it became busy later. right now, traffic is getting busier, especially at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's not undo-able. it's probably a 15, 20-minute delay. if you are in san jose, right throughdown town, heading up to the west -- right through downtown, heading up to the
west. out yond yonder we find a little bit of coast. that's really about the only inland push that i've seen that's worth mentioning. it's mainly up and down the coast. we'll have cooler conditions, 50s, 60s by the beaches. after yesterday's fabulous beaches. cooler, breezy. it will be sunny. by noon it will be sunny inland. mostly sunny i say that because there will be fog flirting and hugging the coast. 56 -- 50s there. 60s around the bay and upper 60s, low 70s inland. we'll still push upper 70s near 80 if you are far enough away from fog influence. some upper 60s, low 70s around the bay. the coolest pattern today will be closer to the beaches which yesterday warmed way up. aillery count continues for you
suffering from pollen. our cooldown is courtesy of a system up in the pacific northwest. it's right off portland right now. but once you get to may, june, july, anything along the low will increase the breeze. that's what we had. we had 40 at the napa airport. santa rosa is down to 43. still some 40s, san rafael, concord, livermore, redwood city. these temperatures are warmer. oakland starting off at 50. by go 64 at noon -- we go 64 at noon. our low, there it is. get a good look at it. that's why i like to show this water vapor satellite. it shows really the details and once that goes by later today, then the high comes in behind that.
there's no rain forecasted. i should mention a couple of our models indicate some for the weekend. but until that time, it will be warmer on tuesday, even warmer on wednesday. we could see 90. today, it's cooler, if you are away from the cloud on the coast, there could be a few sprinkles. livermore, 78. walnut creek, la fayette, alamo. same for pleasanton. we're rather breezy. 76, that's the spirit. milpitas, santa clara. morgan hill, 76. palo alto, mountain view in there, but san bruno, daly city, half moon bay, even san francisco upper 50s low to mid- 60s at best. everybody is on the warmer

statement until 11:35 east coast time. 7:45. again, bin laden was not found hiding in a remote cave in afghanistan where most people thought that he was. he was living living in a huge custom-built mansion in pakistan. kraig boswell has more from washington, d.c. >> reporter: good morning. yeah. we're learning more from some of the navy s.e.a.l.es saying that -- the navy s.e.a.l.es saying he didn't look sick at all. president obama said the u.s. officials got a lead on bin laden's location in august. president obama announced the news of osama bin laden's death late sunday evening. >> the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who is responsible for the murderer of thousands of innocent men, women and
children. >> reporter: bin laden was trapped to a compound in abbottabad, pakistan. >> and finally, i determined that we had enough evidence to take action, enough to bring osama bin laden to justice. >> reporter: about 40 navy s.e.a.l.es were flown in and bin laden refused to surrender and was shot in the head. three others in the compound were killed, including bin laden's son. one of the choppers used in the operation was destroyed. but no americans were injured. >> from a national strategy leadership, they took some very courageous decisions and kept it at close range.
