2:30 am
1964. >> reporter: flying in kathmandu, it was quickly clear that after saturday's massive earthquake, nepal is bracing for worst to come. in the airport arrival call we felt a 6.7 aftershock. immigration officials ran away from their stations. tensions turned to scuffles outside the airport. people here want out before the next quake hits. kathmandu is a poor and crowded city. the people are staying away from buildings. people here understandably don't want to spend time indoors let alone spend the night in their homes. they're camping out on the sidewalks and in the parks. any bit of green space is being occupied. we met a 16-year-old. >> i'm feeling so nervous and bad for this earthquake. many people are running here and there for their lives. many houses are falling here and there. many people are dying also.
2:31 am
>> reporter: he thinks his family will sleep here for the next week. to the east of kathmandu on mount everest climbers ran for their lives during the earthquake. violent aftershocks triggered more avalanches and landslides. a british army climbing team pinned down. >> we can hear rocks crashing down around us, but you can't see them coming. >> reporter: a few dozen have been rescued from the mountain but at least 17 have died including three americans. marissa eve from new jersey was a doctor at a base camp. dab freddenburg worked for google google. he described himself as an adventurer and energetic engineer. back in kathmandu tourists are stuck as well. >> the earthquake actually was
2:32 am
the first day of our stay in kathmandu. >> reporter: this woman slept in her hotel lobby close to the door. >> again it's probably the lobby or even we're thinking of being in the open space right here. >> reporter: medical and military officials tell us they have no real idea how many have died or how big of a disaster this could turn out to be. richard engel, thanks. we are learning the confirmed death toll of the everest avalanche has rised to 18 lives lost. a military plane is on its way carrying 70 people including members of an urban search and rescue team. a disaster assistance team and cargo. we have the latest from the heart of kathmandu. >> reporter: they search by hand brick, by brick. this team convinced they've located another body under the rubble around kathmandu's most
2:33 am
famous temple complex. >> one of the people is buried there. >> reporter: this is what remains of the historic heart of kathmandu kathmandu. the buildings are too vulnerable to withstand the quake. the area around the square seems to have taken the brunt of the quake. some of the buildings date back to the third century. the nine-story tower has been reduced to a shattered stump. this was one of the most popular attractions commanding a panoramic view of the kathmandu valley. open spaces here are packed. the people who live through saturday's quake are too afraid to return to their homes preferring to live outdoors for
2:34 am
now. their terror heightened by an aftershock. they huddle with their friends. you feel safer here? >> yeah. more than our house. >> reporter: old kathmandu was a magnet for tourists and this was the height of the tourist season. this san diego man was just a couple days into a tour. >> it was chaos. nobody knew what to do. there were people helping, trying to find people. it was just absolute chaos here. >> reporter: nearby a rescue team sifting through the remains of a temple pulled out another victim which they said was probably a tourist. >> thank you so much. turning to domestic economics. the clinton foundation is admitting mistakes as questions swirl about former president bill clinton and hillary clinton. the acting ceo of the foundation
2:35 am
talked about the commitment to transparency. today our donor disclosure and foreign government contribution policy is stronger than ever. we have made mistakes but we are acting quickly to remedy them and have taken the steps to ensure they don't happen in the future. it comes as the author of clinton cash defends his reporting. he says the clinton ties to a uranium deal with show a clear pattern of benefit. the question is with this deal and others in the book, is it coincidence in a pattern that we see repeated dozens of times where large clinton supporters have business before the state department, make large payments and favorable actions are take snn i don't think that coincidences occur that frequently. that's my contention here. you see a series of actions that are beneficial in some cases
2:36 am
hillary clinton is reversing course of policies that she embraced before for the benefit of clinton donors. this warrants investigation. >> there appears to be mixed reactions from republicans with the frequent clinton adversaries saying the alleged allegations are illegal but the governor in their state issuing a warning to their party. >> this story has three ramifications that bear looking at. an awful ungodly amount of money involved in these transxs. it involves a foreign source and then it involves high important decisions in government. no evidence of a quid pro quo. republicans need to be careful not to overstate the case but it reminds us that the clinton's complicated and they tend to make mistakes. >> i think there's a very simple case here. the constitution says you can't take this stuff. we have federal laws.
2:37 am
if this was any person by hillary clinton they'd be under indictment for the problem. my point is they took money from foreign governments while she is secretary of state. this is not about politics. it's illegal and dangerous to america to have foreign governments get in the habit of bribing people who happen to be the husband of the secretary of state or the next president of the united states. >> clinton cash author will appear live tomorrow morning on "morning joe." tune in for that. former president bush has made it a point to avoid criticizing his auk ses sor but he took swipes at the obama administration over the weekend. this happened behind closed doors. an attendee says he warned against lifting sanctions in iran and questioning teheran's true intentions. he also said a nuclear deal could do more harm than good. imagine what it looks like for
2:38 am
our grandchildren. bush also criticized president obama's decision to withdraw all u.s. forces from iraq in 2011. he also reportedly suggested the president is not doing enough to defeat isis saying in part quote, in order to be an effective president, when you say something, you have to mean it. you have kill them. that's president george w. bush. a new york times report says russian hackers obtained access to president obama's e-mail. unofficial reports say nothing was compromised but they got e-mail archives of people within the white house with whom the president regularly communicated and they reached e-mails he has sent and received. while unclassified they probably had sensitive information about policy and personal matters. this comes on the heels of ash carter's admission that's week
2:39 am
that russian hackers got in to the network. steps appear to be greater than initially reported. officials maintain that they didn't reach close issues with the president. >> crimea made it seem like the cold war was heating up again. the white house says it has no comment at this time. let's turn to baltimore where freddie gray is laid to rest today. it comes as baltimore officials are urging calm after a tense weekend of protest. 35 people were arrested and six officers were injured in isolated pockets of incidents that left some businesses looted and cars vandalized. as to whether police force contributed to the 25-year-old's death, here's what the commissioner has concluded so far. >> we know he was not pucked in the transportation wagon as he
2:40 am
should have been. no excuses for that period. we know our police employees failed to get him medical attention in a timely manner multiple times. >> they have also clarified the may 1st deadline saying it might not end at that time. let's turn to business. u.s. stocks are starting this week on a positive note after friday's gains resulted in a record high day for the nasdaq. geoff cutmore joins us now. can that trend continue into this week? >> it's a great question. and there are reasons to be optimistic because it's not only the nasdaq that has done well here. the s&p closed out the week with a gain of 1.8% a closing high for that index. we have first quarter gdp reported this week and we have a fed meeting, so two specific events for the market to get its
2:41 am
head around but right now if this momentum continues, there is the potential say some traders for a breakout of the s&p to the upside but keep your eye on it. we're a little lackluster in the european session at the moment. hopefully there will be some pickup when we get into the u.s. trading day for the bulls who want the s&p to start moving. there could be a good catalyst later on for there to be further gains. we're waiting on apple numbers today. we got the watch out at the end of last week and the tech guys just working through what sales they expect for this over the next 12 months a. as we look at the end of the march quarter, the important number is $56 billion. that would be a 23% jump in revenue for the business. that's the number many of the analysts have singled out here. also worth pointing out that much of that will come off the back of the six sales and the
2:42 am
six plus. they have been very strong. the head scratcher, i suppose if you're looking for problem areas is what's happened to ipad sales. are we seeing cannibal iedsing as people buy other things. we'll want to know what apple is going to do with all this money? will they initiate another share bye back buyback, if they do, expect the market to like that news. >> and one company, chipotle this morning the restaurant announced they won't be serving something. what can you tell us about that? >> this is fascinating, isn't it? it thereby first major chain that has decided to move away from genetically engineered ingredients. now, this company will find it easier than a lot of others in this space, because they have a limited range of ingredients
2:43 am
that go into their products. you know basically mexican inspired food they can reduce the whole menu to a little over 60 ingredients which means that they will achieve this goal more easily but one challenge going forward will just be the sourcing here. gm is pretty widespread now across american agriculture and 90% of corn and corn-related crop is gm modified. it will mean that they have to work very hard to secure the ingredients and that there is no break in the supply chain here but i think for them this will give them for a limited period potentially a marketing niche that other chains cannot enjoy. here in europe gm has always been a big issue and a lot of companies have always insisted that they don't use gm product, but in the states, i think you guys have been already relaxed
2:44 am
an it in recent years. interesting to see how it goes. >> absolutely organic is very hot right now. thank you. we appreciate it. still ahead on "way too early," a-rod inches closer to willie mays's record with another home run. highlights, and plus. >> they finally figured out a foolproof way to keep people off my lawn. >> president obama laughs it up in washington. we'll show you who else became the butt of his jokes. that plus a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back. >> the president is expected to address the so-called birther issue that firth erupted during the 2008 presidential campaign. in response to questions about where president obama was born just this morning the white house released a long form copy

across america people, like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins, are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza
2:47 am
or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans.
