7:04 am
interstate yesterday, if you just add a little snow and ice to the mix, it can turn deadly very quickly. just after 3:00 p.m. it began, trucks slamming into cars one after the other. >> i heard lots of -- lots of noises. lots of bangs. sounded like a big train wreck. >> reporter: nearly 50 vehicles were involved many flipped over, trapping drivers for hours in extreme cold. >> people driving in here came in from sunshine to just complete whiteout, and it just compounded to this. >> reporter: one man was pulled from the wreckage nearly four hours after the crash. three were killed and 20 more of the injured were taken to local hospitals. icy highways led to dangerous road conditions across the region. in minnesota, nearly 400 weather-related crashes were reported in the last two days. the state is on track for its coldest winter in more than 30 years. >> i didn't put enough gloves on this morning. my face is freezing.
7:05 am
i can't believe i'm out here. >> reporter: while bitter winters are nothing new for the midwest, subzero temperatures are coating the great lakes with the greatest amount of ice in two decades. and with more frigid weather expected to hit yet again early next week there may be more to worry about. the national propane shortage could leave more than 7 million households, who rely on that heat source, stuck in the cold. >> i don't have a choice. i have absolutely no choice. i don't know how a lot of people, including myself will be able to afford to fill the propane tanks to stay warm for the rest of the winter. >> reporter: temperatures here will rise into the 20s today, but then will head back down into negative territory on sunday. and, clarissa and charlie, the low on monday here is expected to be 17 degrees below zero. >> unbelievable. thank you, dean. the cold weather is hitting
7:06 am
texas hard. much of the lone star state is below freezing. winter storm watches and warnings are up. many areas seeing snow showers or an icy mix, and it's causing trouble for drivers in san antonio. several accidents have been reported there. thousands of utility customers around the state have lost power. larry seward of khou is out in the cold. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and clarissa and our viewers on the west coast. houston area getting hit with a winter storm warning, a mix of ice and snow. the first time we've had this in almost three years. stores here not even selling ice scrapers. drivers having issues to clear the windshields to get the cars on the road. this is one of the worst storms to hit texas in years. last night rain turned to snow, but now the frigid temperatures are the big concern. the mercury here has plunged to below freezing and the mix of wet roads and bitter cold have created dangerous driving conditions. police are telling motorists to
7:07 am
stay off the roads if they can. dozens of schools here are closed or delayed throughout the southern texas region today. also accumulations of snow and ice on transformers and trees could lead to power outages, but there is hope. on the way, the frigid conditions should pass quickly. tomorrow, we're expected to have temperatures in the 60s. charlie and clarissa back to you. >> larry seward in houston. in much of the country, relief is still days away. meteorologist mary kay clies of the chicago station wbbm has the chilly forecast. >> good morning. yes, we have winter storm warnings out for houston. right now, those are the areas in pink. areas in purple indicate where we have winter weather advisories. so snow and ice accumulation slick roads, gusty winds, all a problem in these areas this morning. in fact, houston now with that pink ribbon over the area. that's a sleet and snow mix. to the north of it, it's all snow. moving into louisiana.
7:08 am
a clipper system bringing a couple inches of snow to minneapolis this morning, and it is cold with wind chill advisory from chicago from cincinnati to cleveland. a feels-like temperature now of 27 below in green bay. 22 below in chicago. 17 below in cleveland. so highs today will struggle. the teens in the northeast. 40s in texas. and the 70s along the west coast. so for the weekend, we have a couple of snow events moving through the midwest and the northeast. and after that, wouldn't you know it? another arctic blast heads our way early next week. >> mary, thank you. thousands of commuters in new york city had a slow cold trip home last night. power problems at grand central terminal stopped suburban trains for nearly two hours. passengers were allowed to get off at stations while the trouble was fixed. in egypt this morning, security forces and demonstrators are fighting along the main road to the great pyramid. the clashes come after a serious
7:09 am
of explosions. the blast killed at least five people and damaged a famous museum. alex ortiz is in cairo at the scene of one of the bombings. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and clarissa. the first blast hit at the heart of egypt's security forces. police headquarters in downtown cairo. the suicide car bomb detonated directly outside the building. cleanup crews picked through the wreckage and brought out the bodies of the dead and the injured. it was large enough to damage a nearby museum home to ancient works of islamic art. egypt has seen a wave of militant activity since last summer's ouster of former president muhammad morsi. this particular attack seemed timed to tomorrow's anniversary of the 2011 revolution that toppled former dictate hosni mubarak. but with car bombs in the capital, the joy and unity of that day is only a distant memory. morsi's muslim brotherhood have promised protests to mark the
7:10 am
anniversary, and police are deployed across the country. with today's attack egyptians are stealing themselves for further violence in the days to come. for "cbs this morning," alex ortiz, cairo. an accused mobster is being held without bail this morning in connection with an infamous lufthansa heist. it was dramatized in the movie "goodfellows. "requesting bob has the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, when it happened in 1978, it was the largest u.s. robbery on record. $6 million in cash and jewelry stolen from a cargo shangkargcargo hangar at new york's kennedy airport. it's been a cold case until now. >> it looks like a big one -- >> oh, jimmy! >> hey. come here you. >> reporter: it was a high-profile robbery celebrated on the big screen in the movie "good fellows," and 35 years
7:11 am
after the holdup the fbi has arrested vincent asaro, with the bossano family. >> it could be the largest cash holdup in u.s. history. >> reporter: 1978 a half dozen heavily armed men broke into the lufthansa offices at kennedy airport and rounded up eight employees. >> they handcuffed them and forced them to open the security room. >> reporter: the robbers made off with a $6 million haul. prosecutors say asaro was a lookout for the holdup crew led by jimmy the gent. actor robert de niro portrayed burke in the film. >> don't buy anything don't get anything, what's the matter with you? >> reporter: jimmy burke died in prison in 1996 while serving time on a murder rap. over the years, other co-conspirators were killed and only one airline employee was ever convicted in the case.
7:12 am
most of the stolen loot is still missing. retired new york homicide detective bo dietl spent years investigating burke. >> i thought this was all done. all the people that were involved ended up dead. jimmy burke is dead. i mean it's dead case, now all of a sudden it comes alive, it's like "night of the livin' dead" here. >> reporter: a search at jimmy burke's home in queens turned up evidence of a murder that led back to vincent asaro, and asaro implicated himself in taped conversations with fbi informants. in february 20 11 asaro complained about his take of the robbery proceeds. we never got our right money. what we were supposed to get, asaro told the informant. jimmy kept everything. now, asaro's attorney says his 78-year-old client is completely innocent, but he's not the only alleged mobster in trouble. four other alleged members of the bonanno crime family including the current boss, were also arrested along with asaro
7:13 am
and charged with a variety of crimes dating back no the 1960s. charlie, clarissa? >> bob, thanks. >> the united states attorney general this morning is ruling out any deal with edward snowden and the former nsa contractor who stole millions of secret documents says he has no plans to come back to america. chip reid is at the justice department with those new developments in the snowden case. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, charlie and clarissa. one of the biggest questions in the edward snowden case is how the u.s. government intends to bring him to justice for the crimes they say he committed. well, now the attorney general is weighing in on how to bring ♪en home. speaking at a forum at the university of virginia thursday attorney general eric holder made clear that while the government very much wants to bring edward snowden back to the united states, a deal involving clemency involving the nsa contractor is not on the table. >> if mr. snowden wanted to come back to the united states enter a plea we would engage with his
7:14 am
lawyers. >> reporter: at about the same time thursday snowden himself was engaged in an online dialogue on twitter and was asked under what conditions he would return to the united states. returning to the u.s., i think, is the best resolution for the government, the public and myself, snowden wrote, but it's unfortunately not possible in the face of current whistle-blower protection laws. the attorney general, however, said he does not view snowden as a whistle-blower. >> from my perspective, he's a defendant. he's a person that we have lodged criminal charges against, and i think that's the most apt title. >> reporter: whatever the correct label, the majority of americans believe snowden should stand trial in the u.s. rather than receive amnesty to come home. thursday's conversation follows a week in which snowden has traded accusations with his critics. on cbs' "face the nation" sunday, house intelligence chairman mike rogers suggested that snowden must have had help from the russian security service. >> the way he departed and how
7:15 am
he ended up in moscow -- now, we still have some questions there there -- but i can guarantee you he's in the loving arms of an fsb agent right today, and that's not good for the united states. >> reporter: but in an interview with the "new yorker" magazine snowden said he quote, clearly and unambiguous acted alone, with no assistance from anyone much less a government. charlie and clarissa? >> chip reid thank you. a setback in switzerland this morning where peace talks between syria's ruling regime and western-backed opposition groups are in trouble. margaret brennan is traveling with secretary of state kerry in davos switzerland where the u.s. is working to bring a new voice to the table. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, clarissa and to charlie. intense diplomacy is under way to get the rebels and the regime in the same room. direct talks were cancelled today, but u.n. negotiators have not given up. the process is continuing. one challenge that the rebels have decided to reshuffle their ranks. the u.s. is trying to get them
7:16 am
to bring some of the armed rebel groups into the negotiating room. the u.s. team led by ambassador robert ford consulting on the sidelines, and the diplomats urging the russians to get the regime, assad regime to make progress on the cease-fire and delivery of humanitarian aid. but big sticking point is that the regime flatly refuses to talk about the exit of president assad from power. and the u.s. and rebels say that's the entire reason they're talking in the first place. so as we say, the talks are ongoing, but the syrian foreign minister just threatened to leave by tomorrow if progress isn't made in the next 24 hours. >> margaret, thank you. the federal investigation of new jersey's traffic jam scandal is taking a new turn. the u.s. attorney's office issued subpoenas yesterday to governor chris christie's re-election campaign and the state republican party. prosecutors want to see more than three years of documents. members of christie's inner
7:17 am
circle are blamed for blocking access lanes to the george washington bridge in september. lawyers for christie's campaign and the state gop say they intend to cooperate. pop superstar justin bieber is free on bail this morning. he was arrested at 4:00 a.m. yesterday in miami beach. police say bieber was street racing in a yellow lamborghini, driving twice the 30-mile-an-hour speed limit. the 19-year-old could face jail time. the charges include dui, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license. officers say bieber admitted to smoking marijuana, drinking, and taking prescription pills before he got behind the wheel. jay leno has two weeks left on "the tonight show." we sat down last night with house speaker john boehner. they talked about infighting within the republican party. leno asked the speaker if the conflict is the worst he has ever seen. >> oh, no i -- well, maybe it is. >> yeah, yeah. >> probably. [ laughter ] it's bad. listen, you know, the funny thing about the so-called
7:18 am
infighting is we agree on all the goals we think obama care is bad for the country, we shouldn't spend more than what we bring in we think the president's ignoring the laws. >> yeah. >> it's all a fight over tactics. >> you ever think of running for president? >> no. >> no? >> no, i like to play golf. i like to cut my own grass. >> right? >> you know, i do drink red wine. i smoke cigarettes. >> yeah. >> and i'm not giving that up to be president of the united states. >> that's right. >> that was boehner's first "tonight show" appearance. president obama had been there six times. it's time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york times" says the largest democratic super pac in the country is getting behind hillary clinton. priorities usa action played a key role in president obama's political operation. if clinton runs for president, that group's support will give her a huge fund-raising advantage over other democrats. the "wall street journal" says the national 9/11 memorial museum will charge $24 a ticket.
