6:03 pm
thanks for joining us for this continuing coverage of the massive manhunt that is currently under way in france for the killers of 12 people. terror attack that has shocked france and frankly, much of the world. as we said, this is the largest manhunt france has seen in decades. as many as 88,000 security personnel, military reservists, law enforcement personnel have been deployed, not only in paris but in places far north of here, in many cities and towns not only to provide security to number of government installations, media organizations, but also and most importantly, to try to hunt for the terrorists still at large at this hour. there's been a lot of focus on two brothers. said kouachi and cherif kouachi. both brothers who have been known to law enforcement for quite some time who have had
6:04 pm
run-ins with the law here. the manhunt now seems focused about 45 miles or so northeast of paris and a number of small towns in the north. a gas station was held up. the person who works at the gas station, he believes the two people held him up, stole gas, stole some food, and some liquids were these brothers. police have obviously now been going door to door in a number of communities in this area and also in a forest area. this is a very large forest, thousands of acres. larger than the city of paris itself. there's a lot of ground to cover. as i said, tens of thousands of men and women working right now as we speak in pursuit of these two fugitives. the brothers, of course, are wanted in what is the worst act of terrorism here in decades. they've been known to french and american authorities, even before the killings, charlie hebdo. one believed to have been
6:05 pm
trained in al qaeda in yemen. we'll have reports from the area of the manhunt. first though, we are also learning about the suspected ties to violent extremism and for that, first go to pamela brown. so you're getting some information right now. what are you learning, pamela? >> reporter: that's right, anderson. we learn from u.s. officials who obtained information from french intelligence about items found in the car, may have used to make molotov cocktails in empty containers and gasoline. we know from multiple sources there were rudimentary explosives found in the car. we're not sure if the fact there were gasoline canisters and these other items part of that. also, anderson, we know one of the ids of the brothers was left behind. did they intentionally leave that behind to throw off authorities? but we're told authorities have additional evidence, in addition to the id, indicating that the
6:06 pm
brothers are the key suspects behind the attack that happened at charlie hebdo in paris, yesterday, and we're also learning from sources, anderson, that there's no evidence at this stage indicating the connection between that attack and the other attack that happened in paris today against a police officer near a school. anderson? >> do we know how long these brothers had been on the no-fly list in the united states? >> reporter: well, i'm being told from sources that at least one of the brothers have been on the no-fly, list, anderson, for more than five years. we know one was arrested i believe in 2005 for apparently wanting to join jihadists overseas and then, of course, we know in 2011, the other brother apparently traveled to yemen to train with aqap. years ago, shared information about u.s. officials and were put on the no-fly list at that point and we're also told, anderson, that u.s. officials
6:07 pm
are scrubbing through databases to see if there's any connection between these suspects and high level targets in the u.s. the people u.s. are concerned about, keeping their eye on and we're told at this point, there's no connectivity but of course, it's an ongoing process and things are still very fluid, anderson. >> all right, pamela brown, appreciate the update. i want to go to barbara starr. you learned one of the brothers may have trained in al qaeda with yemen. yes? >> indeed, anderson. two u.s. officials are telling me that french authorities have informed the united states, there is intelligence that the french have that said kouachi, the older brother, did travel to yemen in 2011, trained in al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, the dangerous al qaeda affiliate in yemen. got weapons training there and of course, at that time, the spiritual leader, the operational leader of al qaeda in yemen, anwar al ayla key, the
6:08 pm
american born cleric, was very active in yemen. we don't know if the two met. ayla key was killed in a u.s. drone strike in 2011. what does it mean he trained in yemen? is it possible this was a sleeper cell, essentially, that the yemeni element and al qaeda sent him back to france and basically, he was dormant for a number of years or did he go back to france and just stew about all this and, you know, become further self-radicalized and engage in an attack? but the concern about yemen is fundamental. this is the al qaeda affiliate that proved in the past it has wanted to attack the united states and it did have some of the charlie hebdo magazine officials, magazine journalists, especially the editorial director in its cross hairs and sadly, he was killed in that attack.
6:09 pm
>> and barbara, we talked a journalist here who works in the same building as charlie hebdo. earlier in our last hour who did some investigation on the younger brother back in 2004 and 2005 and talked to the attorney of the younger brother who represented him in the case when he was arrested trying to get into iraq through syria back then. and according to court transcripts, originally back then, the younger brother had been interested in attacking jewish targets in paris and had been convinced by a radical cleric not to do that here, to focus ongoi going to iraq and attacking u.s. targets there. a lot of pieces of the puzzle to learn. thank you, barbara starr. not all they need to know, the work is not done by any stretch. joining me with more on the steps taken to learn more, jim sciutto and evan perez. there's a lot we don't know. but the focus right now on this area of the woods which is really a large territory to
6:10 pm
cover, we don't know if this is part of the brother's plan, if this is just now, they're kind of going minute to minute here just trying to figure out with law enforcement. >> yeah, it's unclear. what is clear is the police are in hot pursuit. i was in this area of northeast paris earlier today and first, the attention was focused on a couple other towns in the same area. again, 40 to 50 miles to the northeast. they focused on one. we saw the police presence there and as we were driving there, we kept running into convoys of police, sirens blaring as they were clearly running the zone. and move attention to another town and move attention to this woods. the reason they did is apparently, the suspects were spotted from a helicopter, abandoning the car they hijacked and running into the woods. was that a plan or a place they went because they were aware of being pursued, that's very plausible possibility. >> right. if this wasn't part of a plan,
6:11 pm
having presuppositioned supplies, it's not going to be pleasant. >> it's cold, wet. we feel that now. it would be difficult in the circumstances. we know they were carrying weapons and a lot of ammunition, they had extra magazines. in terms of staging a fight or keeping a fight there, they have the materials for that. >> that's something law enforcement is very concerned about, trying to remain operational or taking out other law enforcement personnel before they are brought down. and evan, how concerned are u.s. officials specifically about the possible al qaeda and yemen connection? >> anderson, you know what? they're really worried about now is that this is perhaps a sign of an intensified new rivalry and new competition between terror groups. we have the al qaeda group in yemen which has tried to launch attacks against the united states and of course, isis, which is in syria and which is garnered a lot of headlines and frankly, a lot of attention from the united states, from groups and countries in europe.
6:12 pm
and for some time now, u.s. officials have been worried about that al qaeda and al qaeda's affiliate in yemen wanted to carry out some kind of spectacular attack to seize the initiative, to seize again, the headlines. after all, these groups are in competition for recruits. that is what these attacks are often about. they're about drawing more people to their cause. and so whether this indicates a new wave of this type of competition is a big concern now. so that's first and foremost what intelligence officials are worried about. >> there's a lot french law enforcement officials have not disclosed. they keep close to the vest. they say nine other people have been arrested in the wake of the attacks here. we don't know what, if any, connection they had or if they're being detained, arrested. also, the third suspect that a lot of reporting was done on yesterday, this 18-year-old, we're not clear, at least i'm not clear, i don't know if you
6:13 pm
have any update on the status of this person, because they apparently surrendered themselves. there was a number of people on social media telling french officials, no, this young man was in class when these attacks occurred. but i'm not sure if the person was cleared or still in custody. >> we haven't heard anything about him since he gave himself up yesterday and many public comments from colleagues who say he was with us, he was not involved. of course, he did turn himself in. right? he didn't go running with the suspects which gives a possible indication maybe he was not involved. >> raised the question. if he was not involved, we know there was a third suspect, where is that person? and where is that manhunt for that person? >> absolutely. of course, and a reminder as well, you had another deadly attack in paris as well by a gunman. police say they don't see a clear connection between that attack that killed a female police officer here and it took place just down the steet from a synagogue, a jewish school. we don't know that's tied. police say no clear tie to the
6:14 pm
attack that took place just down the street from here but it was a deadly attack on police by someone heavily armed. >> heavily armed, i believe the handgun as well as the rifle for the vest. >> same circumstances in the u.s. two deadly attacks in the capital city against police officers. imagine the level of concern. that gives you an indication of why you have tens of thousands of security officers in this country right now hunting down these suspects. >> jim sciutto, appreciate the update. evan perez as well. this picture dates back years now. cherif, the younger brother an aspiring rapper featured in a documentary as to how people become radicalized. we'll have details on that next. introducing... a pm pain reliever that dares to work all the way until... the am. new aleve pm the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour strength of aleve.

6:17 pm
of thousands of men and women trying to capture the two suspects. provide connection with any still active plots. we've been learning these two did show up the radar of law enforcement before the killings and elsewhere. cherif kouachi, for one, appeared in a 2005 investigative documentary they appeared on french television. here's some of it.
6:18 pm
[ speaking french ]
6:19 pm
>> cherif kouachi, a fugitive wanted tonight for the paris attack. ultimately back then, he was put on trial. tried to fight u.s. forces. joining us now, christiane amanpour in paris with me and in london, former muslim extremist and antiextremist educator, maajid nawaz. maajid, there's so much we know about how young people like him are radicalized and yet, it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference in terms of trying to prevent it. >> yes. the reason for that, unfortunately, although we are good at sending across drones across the world or indeed taking out the leaders of al qaeda, what we aren't very good at for various reasons, one of them because governments aren't particularly comfortable in having this discussion is in stemming the flow and the appeal
6:20 pm
of this ideology on the grassroots. i listened earlier at a report that up to 5,000 french muslims are monitored for being potential jihadists. that's a huge, huge number. if we look at that, roughly 500 gone from france to syria. of course, around 500 from britain as well as to europe. it tells you the scale of the problem. i think the challenge here is that we deal with a brand that appeals to young aspiring rappers like the kouachi brothers, people who were appearing to be well integrated. what appears to them more than the culture that these societies offer them is a perverted islamist brand. what we haven't got to grips with is how to provide alternative messaging, how to promote alternative brands so these young kids go down a different path. there needs to be a cooperation on that and it isn't there
6:21 pm
unfortunately. >> in the united states, christiane, i think there's greater integration than in france and throughout europe. >> that's absolutely for sure. when you look at all the polls and the social studies around american muslims, they are much more integrated than they are in this part of the world. but i think and maajid and others say it goes beyond alienated youth now. we've been hearing this story for a long, long time. what maajid was saying, there's a lot of political correctness for many years now. we've all bent over backwards to be tolerant, to try to understand what's going on. trying to separate the violent extremist, nihilist. and we do actually as a world have to figure out how to address what's going on now. why is it that radical islam is the vehicle for a rage against whatever political problem they
6:22 pm
seem to have. why is it that it is used through radical islam? the words allah agbad have become because of these muslim extremist the most wicked words in our dictionary today. these are words that terrify people and for a very, very good reason. >> maajid, it's interesting too. it's often these young men too who frankly have little religious background. grow up from maybe families that are muslim but not necessarily extremist themselves. they were smoking pot, they wanted to be rappers. young guys dating women and within a very short period of time, he's planning ongoi going over to iraq to attack u.s. forces and accused of being a suspect in this horrific terror attack. >> yes and one of the reasons, and i agree with everything christiane said, thank you for that. and one thing that's consistent
6:23 pm
throughout europe and i don't think that many of us have yet to comprehend the sheer scale of the problem we take in europe and takes shocks for us to have these conversations, one of them is that so many young european born and raised muslims primarily identify as muslims only or as muslims primarily and don't identify with their european societies and vice versa. many don't feel affinity to minority communities and we see the rise on the far right in europe, an acute identity crisis playing out across europe and i worry. i think there's a vacuum in the middle and that vacuum, the far right extriemists, if small classic liberals, stand for pluralism and human rights, don't agressively go to those initiatives across europe, that vacuum unfortunately will be filled by extremist
6:24 pm
organizations on all ends of the political spectrum. we've seen mosques attacked. and i worry for the future of europe. it takes people to be brave, to stand forward, to not coward and compromise, bow down to the demands of extremist on all ends of the spectrum and what it means to be european and solve this identity crisis once and for all. until we do, you'll see more non-religious and ir religious men choosing an identity for themselves. >> yeah. >> maajid is right and of course, it is up to the islamic leaders to get out there and with no ifs, ands or buts to get a grip on this issue. as he said, one of the things we live right now is a very ugly and rise yet again of islamophobia and this is very worrying. all these governments now watch to see how the far right, which made huge gains in the last
6:25 pm
local elections in europe a few months ago, national frontier, u.k. and england, the groups in belgium and in germany and elsewhere, which are mobilizing big antiislamic sort of demonstrations, how this is going to play into this very ugly political situation. >> yeah. christiane, i appreciate it. maajid nawaz, great to have you on again. the fear back home in the united states of self-radicalized jihadis committing so-called lone wolf attacks or self-starters. there's been several such attacks before this. we'll have more on that next.

at large wanted in connection with the killings here wednesday. shouting allah akbar, we have avenged mohammed. and some from al qaeda or representing them. authorities not definitive linked them to any network. at least not yet. the massacre down the block there, charlie hebdo the worst act of terror seen in decades. it comes on the heels of string of smaller attacks by so-called self-starters. with that, here's gary tuchman. [ gunshots ] >> reporter: even before this mass murder in paris, they were on threats from isis militants with this video released before christmas. the mass militant begins by
6:30 pm
saying, i would like to talk to my brothers and sisters in france. and later continues by saying "make france explode, disingrate france into pieces, shoot these guilty people in the head." shortly after the video, a man cried out, god is great in arabic and began stabbing police officers in the city of tour. he wounded several officers before shot dead. his name? anio and an isis flag on facebook page. one day later, a driver in the french city of di jon also shouting out god is great drove his vehicle to a crowd of pedestrians. he rested. and then the very next day, another driver, another vehicle to a crowd of people. this time at a christmas market in the city of not. one person died in that attack. police arrested that driver too.
6:31 pm
authorities believe he and the other driving attack suspect may be mentally ill. and in paris, on the same day as the second driving attack, shots are fired at the synagogue. nobody is hurt from the shooting. these so-called lone wolf incidents prompt a french newspaper to come out with this headline which translates to fear over christmas. and also prompts the french prime minister to add hundreds of additional soldiers to the streets. >> 1,200 french individuals or residents have links to jihad. nearly 380 present in syria and are active in terrorist groups and learning terrorism and horror. then of course, let me emphasize, there is a threat of proportions never seen before. >> reporter: the day after, went back to the market to show solidarity. >> translator: we must come
6:32 pm
back. we have no choice. >> reporter: massive crowd turn out in support of those killed at charlie hebdo. gary tuchman, cnn, atlanta. >> joining me now, jean-charles brisard and face of al qaeda. former chairman of the house intelligence committee. jean-charles, you and i were talking during the break. the sheer volume of potential suspects here, people who have either traveled to syria or to yemen or who haven't even left this country is frankly overwhelming french intelligence and the judicial system. >> yes, everyone. listen. we have today, 1200 individuals involved in those networks since 2012. meaning those who traveled to syria and iraq, those who returned, those who were vved in recruiting networks in france or support networks, in addition to that, we have 3,000 people
6:33 pm
potentially. that's the latest estimate of the intelligence services from three months ago of the people radicalized that might get involved in violence activities. >> and tracking all of them, i mean, you can't have manpower tracking them around the clock. >> it's impossible. two things you need. first, good reason. meaning evidence. you need information, specific information. saying that these individuals might be involved in violent activities. second, you need resources. just individuals 24 hours a day, you need 25 agents. >> 25 agents to track one person in 24 hours. >> yes because you need to track him physically, you need to track his phones. sometimes people have several phones. so you have to dedicate resources for each device he uses, laptops, whatever. and so they are overwhelmed. there's not enough resources inside intelligence for everyone. we have to make choices,
6:34 pm
strategies in regards to who's followed, access. the individuals. >> rogers, we've seen a number of attacks in the united states. nadal hasan, you called the lone wolf or self-starter who reached out to anwar alaki online. how concerned are you about these people whether they have a direct affiliation with a group overseas or self-starters who watch some videos online and decide to try to get some weapons, how concerned are you about this kind of attack in the united states? >> i'm very concerned. if you look back with isis recently, they switched gears. in australia, they had a group of self-radicalized australians who said they wanted to go to australia for the jihad. they were told by isis recruiters, no, we want you to
6:35 pm
stay in australia. we want you to random ly go, sed us video. you'll do more for the cause in doing that. and then you saw this start of this new continuing to encouraging the lone wolf attacks and people are taking advantage of it. there's so many ways to radic radicalize these folks. they can do it through local folks engaged in radicalization. >> and chairman rogers, french intelligence for years has been very capable at infiltrating, you know, these groups and infiltrating communities, integrating communities in paris and elsewhere to gather intelligence. if france though isn't able to keep up with all the people they
6:36 pm
have, what does that say about other western countries and in the united states? >> it's nearly impossible. the longer that syria is a recruiting tool and it is a recruiting tool and remember, even though they talked about someone to syria which could have been in isis or the newsroom, hall sham, they have the desire and capability to do these attacks and talk about a yemen connection. even though there's different organizations, their goals and aims are the same. and so you don't have to be a member of any of those organizations to be radicalized to the point where you want to be a part of this movement, you want to commit of act of jihad and slaughter innocent civilians. that's what is so concerning. if you think of this, anderson, the federal government watch about 21 al qaeda affiliates, that doesn't count isis and other organizations, but al qaeda affiliates, about half of those have pledged support to isis and their activities meaning that their communication tools, finance tools, logistic
6:37 pm
tools would be made available to them. that's very, very concerning. and it's metastasizing in a way that says, we had better get a handle on this big recruiting tool which is syria and iraq. and the perceived success they're having at pushing back western engagement there. >> there is concern, i know, here in france. if there's an overreaction and, you know, everything just, tighter security. overreaction, immigrant groups feel a less sense of belonging, that's what some terrorists want. they want to create this division. >> the communities against others. and precisely we've shown in the last 24 hours that we were resolved to with determination to keep our values as they are and not to get anything to the terrorists. >> jean-charles, i appreciate you being with us. thank you for staying up late
6:38 pm
and chairman mike rogers, thank you for being with us. up next, the parisian journalist who lost friends including a columnist for the magazine for charlie hebdo, also an e.r. doctor. arrived on the scene five minutes after the attack trying to help save his colleagues. my conversation with him ahead. so how's your credit? a loan? i know i have an 810 fico score, thanks to the tools and help on and your big idea is hot dogs shaped like hamburgers? nope. hamburgers shaped like hot dogs. that's not really in our wheelhouse... you don't put it in a wheelhouse. you put it in your mouth. get your credit swagger on. become a member of experian credit tracker and find out your fico score powered by experian. fico scores are used in 90% of credit decisions. wouldn't it be great if hiring plumbers, shopping online is as easy as it gets. carpenters and even piano tuners were just as simple? thanks to angie's list, now it is. start shopping online from a list of top-rated providers.

6:40 pm
6:41 pm
it's a list past 3:40 a.m. here in paris. a manhunt still under way about 45 minutes north of where i am right now. and miles northeast of where i am. and the attack where it took
6:42 pm
place. the area blocked off and that's why it's a sort of makeshift memorial sprung up in the air and you see candles, flowers, pens and pencils signs and cartoons, people have been coming all day long since the attack took place. this memorial has been growing and growing. it's now spreading to several areas in here. they want to show their defiance in the face of terror. for journalists in paris, it's obviously a professional and personal tragedy. patrick palu not just a columnist but e.r. doctor. but moments after the attack, five minutes after the attack trying to save those he could. he's obviously mourning the loss of friends and colleagues. he's also vowing to not let the terrorists stop his work. the magazine is going to publish an edition next wednesday, next week. they're going to print up a
6:43 pm
million copies of it. i spoke with patrick earlier today at the hospital where some of his colleagues are tistill being treated. [ speaking french ] >> they would be murdered twice if we remain silent. powerful words. worked across the charlie hebdo
6:44 pm
offices, the executive director of a television production and arrived at the building 30 minutes after shooting. i spoke with him a short time ago. we talked to one of your employees, martin, who took the now world famous video from the roof. >> the roof. >> just a few blocks from where we're standing. explain when your employees realized something was wrong. >> they heard heavy fire, automatic rifle and they immediately understood that the target was charlie hebdo right on the same floor next door on our floor. that's behind the door. luckily started filming some of the pictures and two of our reporters were the first to get in after the gunmen had left the area, two of our reporters were the first to get in. the newsroom of charlie hebdo.
6:45 pm
you've seen the dramatic still picture that was at the beginning. >> we were asked to come in and help. >> they went in themselves. what's happening in there, there was still a lot of smoke and still under shock. they described to me a horrific scene of people with shots in their head, a lot of blood and very few wounded people that they started helping at the time when the police and emergency services arrived. >> it's just remarkable that they were so close. they had moved in to the office relatively recently. >> right before the summer in june. to be quite honest with you, we were proud to have charlie hebdo. that's an interesting building with interesting journalism, interesting -- we would joke about the fact that there could be a fear. we talked with them. >> you weren't afraid about it? >> we talked about because they would joke about it. it was their way to cope and
6:46 pm
react with the thing, with the fear, it was the threat. there was some police car from time to time in front of the building. not the recent weeks -- >> so in the recent weeks, you hadn't seen a permanent police presence. >> no, during the summer, yes, there was a car everyday in front of the door but not after t september. >> incredible, i don't know, coincidence or part of this. you actually investigated one of these suspects, one of the suspected terrorists now, one of these brothers years ago. >> yes. in 2005, i made a documentary. a long investigation on the cell. a very small cell of young french men, french nationals in their early 20s and cherif, of course, the younger brother was part of the cell and when i investigated the cell, there were young guys who had very little religious background who decided to go to iraq via syria.
6:47 pm
>> this was 2005. >> 2004 and 2005. some of them died or were arrested in iraq by american forces and cherif, at the time of my investigation, he was in jail because he had been arrested by the french authorities at the french airport as he was on his way to syria. >> he was trying to fly to syria in order to get into iraq. >> exactly. he was sentenced three years in prison and at the time i met his lawyer, he said he was about 22 or 23, he said, quote, i'm happy that they stuffed me. the police voided the fact that i could go to syria and eventually leave iraq. he did three years in jail. >> so his lawyer back then was claiming that cherif, the suspect in this killing, was actually happy that he had been stopped by police because he was, what, having doubts about going to fight in iraq? >> doubts, fear is what he told me and he was under the influence of so-called preacher
6:48 pm
that was feeding him these bad ideas. so the lawyer, it was, of course, part of the defense process, trying to minimize totally his involvement. >> the new york times i believe reported court documents they saw that cherif had originally wanted to target jewish targets in paris, but this preacher, this radical cleric, had convinced him that this is not the place for a jihad, the place for a jihad back in 2004 or 2005 in iraq. >> the preacher never left france. he was sentenced to jail. no targets in france. you have to go to iraq. >> he's one of the perpetrators of this attack, gone back to the original idea of going to france. >> terrible pressure on the freedom of speech here in the heart of paris, in broad
