2:01 am
attacks. at the top of the meeting is the counter terrorism efforts and the threat they perceive to european countries. in the meantime we are getting details for the first time on one of the suspects that was arrested in a police raid here in belgium in the eastern town of verviers. when the suspects opened fire on police and were killed. the third man was arrested and identified by his attorney as marouane el bali. he is being charged, the defense attorney says, with participation in a terrorist organization and possession of explosives and with prohibited possessions of weapons. the attorney insists his client is innocent of all terrorism charges. he said el bali was only in the
2:02 am
apartment raided by police because he was there to deliver a pair of shoes to his friend. he also says his client has no criminal record and was working as a security guard. el bali comes from the neighborhood here in brussels. it is a neighborhood with very high unemployment. with a very large population of first and second and third generation immigrants from north africa. that neighborhood was raided by police on sunday and the mayor there tells us they had to beef up security precautions not only for the headquarters of police in that neighborhood but also for the individual police officers. christine. >> ivan watson for us. thanks ivan. in france now, a source with knowledge of the investigation into the paris terror attacks tells cnn this morning that police are seeking two people whose dna was found on amedy
2:03 am
coulibaly's belongings. coulibaly killed four hostages in a kosher supermarket before police shot and killed him. three women held in connection with the paris attacks were released on sunday. the prosecutor's office says nine others are still being interrogated. i want to bring in our senior international correspondent nic robertson. he is live in paris. good morning, nic. >> reporter: good morning, christine. for the police any leads connecting other people to amedy coulibaly is hugely important. concerns that a group around him may be continuing potential threat for follow-on attacks. he was well on and that is where some of the dna was found. that is where the dna was found on the guns and ammunition and magazines in his apartment. a clip holding bullets. dna found on that. leading police to suspect at least one other person may have been aware of the weapons that he had there.
2:04 am
a large number of weapons he had there and with him on the attack at the kosher supermarket. also dna that french media is saying is believed to have been found in a car that coulibaly is believed to have used to get to the kosher supermarket on friday the day he perpetrated that attack. these two leads for the police very very important associated with coulibaly. security remains very very high. 10,000 french troops on the streets here. this is unprecedented. but the judgment and view of the french people is the government is taking the right steps. the polls in favor of the president and prime minister up 21 points and 17 points. the people are appreciating what the government is doing and giving them stronger approval ratings. christine.

closed roads with presidential security who were trying to protect the presidential staff and there are clashes here and some breaking news i can bring you. we are hearing from officials close to the president that after a meeting for an organized cease-fire the president had with the officials of the houthi movement. he came upon open fire on the convoy. they suspect the gunmen were ally to the houthi movement. the houthi say no. they condemn the attack. this is possibly a third party trying to cause trouble. the president was out to make sure the violence stopped to get the cease-fire going. every hour we see in the city more plumes of dust and smoke suggesting the fight is ongoing. it is important basically because the more yemen is
2:07 am
chaotic, the easier it is for the al qaeda in arabian peninsula is here. the increasing sectarian and the houthi on the other side. according to those close to the president, he is said to be safe in his residence. we are seeing a bid to takeover the building. the symbol of power in yemen. the fight on the streets is determining who will run the country. christine. >> it matters to counter terrorism operations going on in europe. >> reporter: this is how they first got foot hold because aqap is a failed state. now they are struggle theing to hold on to power. here, we see a power vacuum.

since the deadly "charlie hebdo" attacks. at the top of the meeting is the discussion of the counter terrorism efforts and threat they perceive to european countries. we are getting details for the first time for the suspects arrested here for the raid in belgium in the town of verviers. on thursday night, when the suspects opened fire on police and subsequently killed. a third man was arrested and identified by his attorney as marouane el bali. a citizens hailing from the city of brussels. he is being charged, the attorney says with participation in a terrorist organization and possession of explosives and prohibited possession of weapons and with armed rebellion. the defense attorney insists his client is innocent of all terrorism charges. he says that el bali was only in the apartment that was raided by

2:36 am

2:37 am
they are dealing with returnees of the sunni and iraqi front. they are dealing with cells in our countries that can be activated and might decide to strike terrorist attacks. after what happened in paris and what happened in belgium. the organization is such that in europe we don't have integrated intelligence series at the european level. although every european country is concerned. each country is doing its part for its own territory. there is large cooperation. bilateral cooperation has investigative teams involving several countries. we have seen in belgium, these networks or cells, involved in several countries in europe. we know these people are moving a lot and have a lot of contacts with a lot of countries and

other people in other countries who may have been initiated or directed to strike. this is a phenomenon that we try to watch at the european level. it is treated at the national level. >> when you have these borders that are essentially porous for someone who is european citizen, but is following the jihadi philosophy that is more difficult. let's talk about the sleeper cells. a source telling cnn as many as 20 sleeper cells made up of 120 to 180 people may be ready to strike in france and germany and belgium and netherlands. do you think the sweeps and what the officials have been doing right now, do you think they will flush out all of the participants? >> reporter: >> no of course not. it will deter or target and arrest people that are willing
2:39 am
