right now at 6:30, istanbul joins a growing number of cities abroad to be targeted by terrorists. tonight a mounting death toll after a series of suicide bombings and shootings inside europe's third busiest airport. what we know is at least 36 people are dead, but dozens more have been injured. now, that attack is triggering new fear and uncertainty for international passengers here in the bay area tonight. >> a flight bound for istanbul was scheduled to leave sfo about 20 minutes ago but so far has not departed. let's bring in peggy bunker who spoke to some boarding that flight. peggy talks to us now from sfo. good morning, peggy. >> reporter: good evening to you. they are on that plane. the whole check-in story is emptied out, but when we do keep checking it looks like they have not departed.
passengers landed here from istanbul from that airport. many said they are horrified about what happened after their plane took off and landed here. you can see earlier, this is some of the people that were arriving and coming out here at the international. many people who were waiting to pick them up were just so grateful to see them land here. we learned from passengers that they learned what happened back in the istanbul airport while they were on the plane. they were watching live tv as many of these international planes were equipped with. that's how they learned what happened at the airport they just left from a few hours before. a very emotional flight, according to smome of them. we talked to one who just got back from a peace flight. >> i feel fortunate i was able to get away. it's unfortunate this happens in some parts of the world. i'm going to keep traveling. i'm going to live abroad and
keep doing what i want to do. i can't let fear restrict that. >> reporter: so many people are shaken up here as they were getting off that plane just learning of the news, and then when they landed, of course, all the messages on their phone. many people said their loved ones got in touch knowing they were flying from istanbul and were very, very concerned. also, it was a very arduous process once they got to sfo. as they were coming in, many people said their passports and visas were scrutinized when they got here to san francisco. back to you. >> thank you, peggy, and we'll be looking to see if that flight took off. our check of the istanbul airport continues on line. we have a slide show of pictures of the aftermath there as well as more on the death toll. millions of dollars for a report that has no new revelations. the subject of that investigation, the 2012 benghazi attacks in libya. the report, written by a house committee, reveals nothing new
about hillary clinton's role. the big takeaway, though, shows with two americans dead and two more soon to be, defense secretary leon panetta ordered un forces to benghazi but no plane was ready. representative trey gowdy joined them. >> i'll leave them to scrutinize this report, but i think it's clear we need to move on. >> reporter: the report, which cost about $700,000 of taxpayer money. it appears pg&e may actually have the critical records prosecutors have said the utility couldn't produce. investigative reporter jackson v vander becken joins us after
being in court. how did it play out? >> it seemed like a regular day in court and a long day of cross examining a government witness. in the end, both the prosecution and the defense had an amazing announcement that they were wrangling over some 3,000 pages of documents that pg&e essentially proved that they have the records. the government said they don't. why it took so long for this to come to light, well, that's an open-ended question. >> the judge oftentimes can set the tone for this kind of case. what was his response to the revelations? >> he's a thoughtful kind of judge and he initially said he's going to go over the resolutions and get back to them. pg&e is trying to prove they don't have these documents, and if they can suddenly produce them, it's going to put a crimp in the trial. >> what could this mean for the future of this case, jackson? >> we don't really know. the judge could say, this came
too late, so the documents can't be used. or he could put a hold on the trial. there's just really no way to know how significant these 3,000 pages of test reports that pg&e now says it has that it didn't disclose earlier could have on this case. >> a lot of impact on pg&e and customers across the bay area. it may be the world's most expensive piece of software. volkswagen will pay $14.37 billion because of a piece of software that allowed it to cheat on an emissions test. that settlement, 71,000 people in the state who bought 2000 diesel models from 2012 to 2015 will receive several hundred dollars. >> several thousand vehicles were purchased by california
consumers who were misled by vw who were led to believe their purchase was not only a smart investment but also eco-friendly. >> they seemed eco-friendly when they were tested but then polluted four times the legal limit once on the road. the criminal justice is still looking at criminal charges against that giant company. the city is working with santa clara county on creative ways of housing the homeless. they're considering church shelters, small modular homes, but some say they could serve many more people and is a more realistic short-term solution. >> the idea of them sleeping in tents is crazy because that's what they're doing right now, anyway. they're staying wherever they can. if we can get the council to agree to city encampments, that's a better answer. >> they're also considering housing for 2,000 more veterans.

artifacts from california will be just a key stroke away from you. that's because these old bits of history are being digitized and being loaded up on a server. the idea is to organize all the pieces of history and make them easily accessible to us. >> i believe in google's commitment to our culture, our history, and yes, to the state of california. >> reporter: the people working on the project say the amount of historical material on line will continue to grow as more and more is digitized and uploaded. as we head to the fourth of july weekend, we want to know what the weather is. let's bring in our meteorologist rob mayeda. rob? >> look at the four degrees of separation. two degrees in brentwood as we see low clouds and a cooler approach to the weekend. we'll look at that in the

you see places like san rafael, oakland. you'll notice those temperatures cooling from about 105 to 102 degrees. if you look at the east bay, 42 degrees of separation in those climates. still 82 degrees in livermore, but look at brentwood, 102 degrees. 70 close to san jose, but you see san francisco. you have the low clouds, hazy skies, 63 degrees, winds picking up to 6 miles an hour. temperatures in the low 50s and 60 towards the low game. here we are watching these areas of low clouds that will thicken up as we head into tonight. also if you look off to the east today, big time thunderstorms in certifica the sierra and down towards yosemite. an area of high pressure which are really baking the valleys of
the last few days. moisture is rotating around the western flank of the high but the upper level winds around the bay area we still think will be southwesterly. most of that moisture will stay away from us, but the low-level clouds and fog deepen by about 500 feet. thunderstorms still a potential there for the high country if your travel plans include lake tahoe and around yosemite. here's our big story. the area of low clouds starting to spill back across the bay for the morning. as the marine area continues to thicken up, that's going to lead to temperatures start to get a little cooler. we're talking about more than just three degrees of cooling. but by the weekend, at least 3 degrees cooler for our valleys. drizzle possible for the morning there around your golden gate bridge commute. 80s closer to napa and low 90s. probably still some midnight.
he's further north. mid to upper 90s still possible for you. i really don't think you'll notice the cooling as we get to friday and saturday as this high really starts the weekend. that will be the end of the week leading to fourth of july weekend. that sea breeze will allow temperatures begin to drop close to average. better air quality there, too. dublin out of the hundreds, 90s and they be eventually some 80s. san francisco, more low clouds. a the bit of a cool start to the weekend. the numbers we think should rebound as we approach fourth of july there on monday. so the fourth of july weekend forecast for now, we'll see a bit of a warming trend but not to the levels we've seen over the last few days. the slow cooling continues the next couple days. the biggest cooling arriving for friday and saturday. back to you. >> that's just right. thanks, rob. up next, the basketball legend has died. the outpouring of love and admiration today for pat
