this morning, police and soldier soldiers are searching towns east of paris for the two brothers. france's prime minister said they could attack again. said and cherif kouachi reportedly said, you can tell the media it was al qaeda in yemen. the third suspect surrendered last night. >> the paper has a history at angering muslims. last night the french citizens paused for a moment of silence to honor the victims. meanwhile, another moment of violence this, mowing left a police officer dead. clarissa ward is in a suburb of monte rouge just south of paris. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there is a palpable sense of fear on the streets of paris after yet another shooting here. the area behind me was swarming with french s.w.a.t. teams after two people were shot, and across the city there's an increased police presence. we've heard helicopters
circling overhead and, indeed this entire country remains on high alert. the bloodshed in paris continues this morning. a gunman shot a policewoman and a passerby on the street before fleeing the scene. the policewoman later died from her injuries. the incident did not appear to be connected to yesterday's massacre at the charlie hebdo magazine. a nationwide manhunt is under way for the two gunmen suspected of killing 12 people. throughout the night, french police caried out raids. seven were arrested. the search centered on the city of rim, where 32-year-old cherif and his 34-year-old brother said are believed to have been living. the two men were allegedly identified after one of them left their i.d. card in the abandoned getaway car. cherif and said were well known to french authorities. in 2005 cherif seen here in a documentary from the same year was charged with trying to join
jihadists in iraq. a third man, hamyd mourad 18 surrendered at a police station in a small town in eastern france after learning his name was linked to the attacks. france is in shock after yesterday's massacre. [ gunfire ] amateur video showed one of the men executing an injured policeman at point blank range. this was the worst terrorist attack in this country in two decades. now, we are hearing reports on french media of sightings of the two brothers about a hundred miles north of paris. according to these reports they were heavily armed and actually robbed a gas station. so far we're not able to confirm those reports but we're able to monitor this very closely. gayle? >> thank you. some of the strongest outrage this morning appears in newspapers around the world. they're saying things like liberty assassinated and war on freedom.
another spoke of ak-47s versus pencils. others used a simple message i am charlie to defend free speech. huge crowds turned out last night as vigils were held all over france. thousands of people showing their defiance after this massacre. elizabeth palmer is also in paris today. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: it's now just 24 hours since te shooting and especially with at least two gunmen on the loose in this country, people are both shocked and apprehended. nevertheless, they were back on the streets this morning demonstrating. [ bells tolling ] the bells of notre dame cathedral rang out, marking a minute of science on this national day of mourning. the pens held aloft, are a somber sign of respect for the dead journalists. former president nicolas sarkozy said "i am overwhelmed by these barbaric events.
civilization itself is at stake. civilization and freedom of expression." at rallies across the country last night, demonstrators carried placards saying "i am charlie" in solidarity with the magazine "charlie hebdo," which was targeted by the gunmen. people here didn't necessarily agree or even like it, but they did believe it had the right to speak freely. something "charlie hebdo" had done often outrageously over the years. it often took aim at islamic extremism with provocative cartoons and comment. once a spoof edition was guest edited by the prophet muhammad. and the last tweet yesterday before the attack poked fun at the head of the militant group isis. this position has cost the magazine. in 2011 their offices were firebombed and their editor had full-time police protection. that officer was one of those gunned down in the magazine's offices yesterday.
outside the building, a floral tribute was growing at the spot where the gunmen executed a second police officer before escaping into the paris suburbs. and in what may be the ultimate gesture in defense of freedom of speech "charlie hebdo" just announced they will go ahead and publish next week. >> thank you so much. people in other nationings are also remembering the victims of wednesday's massacre. a large crowd gathered in london's trafalgar square for a large vigil. there were demonstrations in cities across the u.s. including new york city. everywhere people held up signs saying i am charlie. >> officials tell cbs news this morning that both supects in the killings have longstanding ties to al qaeda. they're long-term jihadists initially connected to iraq and then to yemen. one traveled to yemen in 2011. we also learned a third suspect who surrendered last night is their brother-in-law. cbs news senior security contributor mike morrell is with us. and also former cbs correspondent john miller.
he's now new york city's deputy commissioner for police intelligence and counterterrorism. thank you both for being here this morning. let me begin with you, mike. what do we know about the suspects so far, and what does that tell us? >> the link to yemen is interesting to me. we had at least two of the suspects say they were al qaeda in yemen. now we know that one of them traveled there. i think there's a good possibility that we're looking at an al qaeda in yemen directed attack which would be the first al qaeda in yemen directed attack against the west since the christmas day bombing in 2009. >> al qaeda in yemen is different in any particular way from al qaeda elsewhere or isis? >> sure, al qaeda in yemen is linked to al qaeda in pakistan. they see zhao hurryer zawahiri as the leader of their group. that's different than isis.
they're in competition with each other for prominence and fund-raising. very different. >> this is a very significant development that he travelled in yemen in 2011 because the question we have is whether these are two brothers around the brother-in-law acting as lone wolf or whether they were receiving direction from yemen. has the head of the snake been cut off? could there be more attacks out there? >> al qaeda in yemen is a very dangerous group. i think they're the most dangerous terrorist group out there. they said just a few days ago they want to attack the west. the head of the snake has not been cut off so the threat continues. one of the things about the trip to yemen that's important is the individual probably received training. we saw that yesterday in the military-style, the commando-style attack. very sophisticated. >> does it say anything to you, john, that the 18-year-old surrendered so quickly? >> no. in a case like this, there's an expectation you may be killed, there's an expectation you may be caught. i wouldn't read as much into that. i would read a lot into what mike morell is saying, which is
the two models that are out there right now, one is the isis model. their job is to take territory, hold it, plant a flag and say "this is the islamic state." they're in the nation building business right now as a terrorist organization. al qaeda of the arabian peninsula, or aqap al qaeda in yemen, their job is as an external planning and operations node for al qaeda. so what you would be -- what this would suggest is if there is travel to yemen, if there is connection to al qaeda, if there is an aqap connection here, that this was an organized and directed by al qaeda's principal external planning operation attack against the west and you also have to separate what aqap's job is. al qaeda long ago, after drone strikes and everything else kind of handed the ticket to aqap in yemen and said your job
is to figure out how to attack the united states and allies in the west. >> can we talk about security at home? these two brothers were known jihadists. presumably the french government knew they had travelled to yemen. if there's a case like that in the united states, are we tracking people like this do we know about them? >> we've been tracking people like this in the united states for years. that's what the fbi does. that's what cooperation with the cia and other ajen brings when somebody comes into the country. one of the difficult decisions you have as an intelligence official is when somebody like that turns up on your radar screen, do you do something to disrupt that right away and then not know who else is out there, or do you try to pull that string and collect intelligence to discover the rest of the network? >> could an attack like what happened in paris, happen here in the u.s.? >> on a couple of levels. number one, we live with the fact of the post-9/11 world,
even the pre-9/11 world, that al qaeda, with the external planning group, intends to conduct attacks in the west and the united states. that threat has never gone away. the new wrinkle is that groups like isis, while they have a less sophisticated external planning operations node, have a much more sophisticated and slick propaganda arm that is extolling people to do this without having contact with the mothership, saying here's the instructions in the magazine, these are different things you can do, operate within your capabilities, and you don't have to check with us to go forward. >> mike is this a moment -- i mean, 9/11 was a huge moment 12 people here, not thousands. but is this a moment that means it's different going forward? >> i think this is a moment for two reasons. one is this was an attack on our very way of life.
this was an attack on fleereedom of speech. so this is an attack on the way the west lives. and that's different than what we've seen before. and i think the response you see in the street around the world is a reflection of that. the other thing i think is as 9/11 in new york, as the subway bombings in london, and now this in paris, this tells everybody that this can happen anywhere. >> all right john miller mike morrell, great to have both of you here. thank you so much. we're going to continue to monitor the manhunt for the attackers. we'll bring you updates from our correspondents in paris. many of you in the west will enjoy a comfortable day today, but a chill is bringing temperatures down to the single digits even in places like alabama. overnight, windchills make it feel so much worse. 25 below in chicago. in memphis, it felt like 1 below. and that's where mark strassmann is right now. mark, good morning to you.
>> reporter: good morning, good morning to all of you watching in the west. across the south, school systems delayed or canceled classes. at graceland, where it's elvis presley's 80th birthday, no one's sure what impact the cold will have at the celebration. across the country, the deep freeze has turned dangerous. blinded by snow. one michigan family said they went through 16 miles of terror after their car rammed into the back of a tractor-trailer, latched on, and was dragged for nearly half an hour. >> we're traveling on i-75. it was snow blinding. we ran into the back of a truck. and he's not stopping and our car is embedded underneath of it. >> the truck driver did not realize an entire family was trapped behind the semiuntil police were called. no one was seriously hurt. >> 16 miles of complete and utter helplessness. we had no control of anything. >> during a snowstorm in pennsylvania, a pileup involved 18 vehicles. two people were killed. dozens more injured.
and in chicago where windchills hit minus 25 degrees, firefighters had to put out flames at a house even as their uniforms froze over. >> when you get ice like this, it actually gives you a shell so your body temperature stays warmer. it's all about helping people helping the community. people say it's in our blood. >> reporter: the blast of arctic air taking place across much of the u.s. is coming south. >> it's going be cold but not as cold as it is today. >> reporter: in memphis, temperatures plunged to single digits. volunteers with the sheriff's office went door to door, making sure seniors had heat. >> the temperatures will be dropping tonight and we wanted to make sure you have adequate heat, which you do. >> reporter: across the south, there is concern about schoolchildren waiting for the bus. one school is having buses pick up the kids right at their front door. the bus will pull up honk and
the kids will come out. >> mark thank you. new hope this morning in the fight against drug resistant super bugs. this comes from common soil. you're excited about this. i was reading this morning it seems like it could be a real breakthrough. >> oh it's wild, you know in december, a month ago, we were -- four of us were talking about super bugs. how it had to potential to kill more people in 2015 than cancer and all of a sudden we see this announcement here. it really is special. a new antibiotic that will kill drug-resistant bacteria. what's cool is it comes from soil. almost all the antibiotics come from soil. bacteria make antibiotics to kill other bacteria. in the 1960s, we got all of the bacteria we could grow from soil and identify the antibiotics we have today. and then it stopped. there weren't new bacteria. but now this group figured out a
new way to grow bacteria and it identified a natural compound that kills these drug resistant strains. >> what is it called? what will it treat, doctor? >> it's called teixobactin. teixo is the greek word for "wall" and this hits the wall of the bacteria. it hits all the gram positive bacteria out there. so about half of the super bugs it will hit. >> how long will it take to test with the fda and come to market? >> well, you know, it first has to be made into a solution that you can give intravenously. and that will take about a year or two. and the clinical trials could take anywhere from one to two years. so in three to five years we could have this. my hope is that we push real aggressively to have it sooner because we need it. >> all right. dr. david agus, really exciting news, good to see you. it is 7:18. ahead on "cbs this morning," protesters' chilly welcome for bill cosby. their blunt message as he takes the stage for his first shows of

>> reporter: he warns investors beware. >> a lot of people are crowding into the marijuana industry because they think they're going to be able to tell a legal good and illegal prices. competition is not going to allow that. it's going to be dirt cheap and people will lose their shirts first. >> if they don't get arrested first. marijuana is still illegal according to the federal government. that could change. do you see any risk that sentiment could shift back here. >> i don't see that risk. over 80% of americans with medical cannabis should be legal. you can't get eight out of ten americans to agree on anything. >> this isn't certainly a politically motivated investment. we're investing because we believe it's great business. >> they believe it will be fully legal within a decade. as of now, there's no number on how many businesses have started
or how many jobs have been created but many experts agree the marijuana market could become a 150 to $200 billion market worldwide. >> so their goal is to get the first. >> and what's really important here is to have a company like founders which is a very established investment firm raising the flag and saying this is it. >> we might see the floodgates open. >> i think they'd like to see that. as they say, it's been hard raising money. >> i like that he said anybody who wants to use cannabis is already doing it and you said interesting. >> you can interpret that however you want gayle. on "60 minutes" money and safety issues. we'll preview bill whitaker's report. and coming up on "cbs this morning," could an avocado a day make you live longer? dr. tara narula breaks down the

france is full of outrage, sadness, and fear this morning after wednesday's massacre in paris. people around the world are denouncing the terror attack and defending free speech. officials tell cbs news officials told cbs news the two suspects on the run have both been involved with al qaeda for years. first in iraq, then in yemen. >> their 18-year-old brother-in-law surrendered to police last night and intense manhunt for the men who killed 12 people is expanding. officers are searching towns east of paris. clarissa ward is in the paris suburb near the deading shooting hour ace go. clarissa, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, there's definitely a palmable sense of fear here after yet another shooting. behind me there were swarms of french s.w.a.t. teams earlier after a police woman was shot dpaed. dead. for two men who are now the most wanted men in france.
the two suspected gunmen in yesterday's massacre. we are hearing reports in french media that those two brothers kouachi were spotted at a gas station 100 miles north of paris. the two men were reportedly heavily armed. we've also seen a photograph released by lemand newspaper who shows the aftermath of yesterday's massacre. it is a chilling image. you can see blood and papers scattered across the floor. these two brothers were well-known to french police. one of them cherif had been arrested in 2005. french authorities are saying to people here you have to be patient. this hunt could take several days. this was the worst terrorist attack here in more than two decades. so this country really is on high alert. norah? >> clarissa thank you so much. and take a look at this cartoonists around the world use
their most powerful weapon to show their outrage. they turned to social media pouring their emotions into art, a stream of unmistakable mess sanls to the killers that freedom of speech and expression can never be erased. the drawings evoke solidarity. one australian posed an image of a masked gunman standing over a dead cartoonist. the caption "he drew first." another by a dutch political cartoonists. two pencils standing as parallels of the twin towers of 9/11. many sketches bear the #jesuischarlie, or i am charlie. when a danish newspaper was targeted in 2005 putting cartoons of the prophet mohammed. charlie prohibited them. he spoke to us by skype. >> together my colleagues in
paris, i knew personally two of these people. the coeditor in chief, he never waivered in his belief that they had to do what they were doing. one is the biggest con sternists of our time. the thing about this is that it's not a surprise. i believe that if you give in to intimidation, you shall cave in to these kind of threats. if you give into this you will not get rid of it. you will just get more because you tell those killers and those intimidators that the intimidation works. what is driving most papers, media right now is fear. we do not publish these kinds of things not because we want to be nice but because we are afraid that what happened to charlie yesterday in paris may happen to us tomorrow. >> survivors of the massacre say
charlie will publish again next week. this morning another danish newspapers are printing some of his cartoons that offended muslims. >> we're going to continue to bring you updates from paris. this morning 13 flight attendants hope a lawsuit against united airlines will get their jobs back. they were fired for refusing to fly after seeing this message drawn on the plane. an bye-bye. crew members say united did not take the threat seriously. elaine quijano is here with the story you will only see on "cbs this morning." >> good morning. in the complaint the 13 veteran flight attendants scheduled to fly from san francisco to hong kong last july alleged the airline did not take proper security measures when they brought their images to their attention. instead of searching the entire plane, they say united accused them of insobubordination and fired them. >> she showed us the picture of the graffiti together with two faces taken on the phone. that was the first time i saw
the graffiti. >> reporter: on july 14th 13 flight attendants all of whom had been on the job 17 years, were preparing flight 869 when they learned graffiti had been discomped on the fuselage. bye-bye was scrawled in oil along the tail section nearly 30 feet off the ground. >> i was scared. i was frightened. i have flown as a flight attendant for 12 of 24 years and i have never seen anything like this. >> reporter: in the wake of the disappearance of malaysia airline flight 370, four months earlier, lamb and the crusade they perceived the message as serious threat. but according to the 26-page complaint united airlines refused to deplane and the ground crew inspected only the auction xil rare unit and said it was, quote, a joke. >> someone who has the ability and the time to paint a graffiti had time to do other things on the airplane. >> reporter: the flight attendants refused to fly
without a full security sweep. and the trip was canceled since united had no crew. in october the airline terminated all 13 flight attendants for insubordination. >> i believe as a moral mandate to do what they did and that's to say we're not going to fly on this flight. >> reporter: david marshall is an attorney representing the flight attendants. >> an airline is required to deplane the passengers, get them off the plane, and do a security sweep of the plane. they didn't do that. >> reporter: in a statement united told "cbs this morning" our flight operations, safety and maintenance teams appropriately investigated and determined there was no credible security threat. all of faa's and united's own safety procedures were followed including a comprehensive safety sweep prior to boarding. and the pilot, mechanic and safety leaders deemed the aircraft entirely safe to fly. >> i have no regrets about. if this happens again today, all over again i would have done the same thing. any flight attendant would have done it.
this is our job. >> grace lamb and the other flight at tent dantds are asking united to reinstate them. the plaintiffs are seeking back pay and compensatory damages. gayle? >> thanks, elaine. i keep seeing in this climate why they would be nervous and i think the flight attendants are the first line of defense. she made a really good point. if you have time to make that graffiti you have time to do other things. the fall of ft. stadiums is always a spectacle but a group in san francisco are saying not in my backyard. why they say the implosion of a landmark is a

cles more than the other two diets. >> what's in the avocado? >> so it's a newt trent rich power-packed fruitful of mono unsaturated fat. it has fiber, antioxidants it's low in sodium, cholesterol, and sugars and the ancient aztecs thought it was an ancient after aphrodisiac aphrodisiac. >> that may to be the most important thing you said. >> got it. >> but guacamole, you have to be careful with because you're eating all the chips. >> right. this is not a license to eat all the chips. you can use it in supeoups salads.
in other countries they make it in milk shakes. >> one thing that caught my eye is the well balanced d.a.s.h. diet is rated the best. i haven't heard of it. charlie, have you heard of it? >> most people don't know about it but the medical people don't. the dietary approach. it's well rounded, simple and a safe kind that include lots of whole yan grains, fruits and vegetables and it's been shown to lower your blood pressure as much as five weeks which is what medications can do. >> it's great for a healthy lifestyle. still weight watchers. >> that was ranked number one. many sports stadiums have disappeared in the clouds of dust and debris. the plans to restore one

are the things that become very important. >> well, if your spouse says something that would anger you, i would say swol lowe the anger. >> somebody would say how long have you been married. i said 44 years. they say, that long. i say i pray a lot. >> that's good. >> he shares his findings in a book. advice for americans in love relationships and love. good morning, carl. i love this book. it comes with facts. you study over 700 people. you talked with them. first, what are some of the secrets to picking the right partner? >> you know, the elders have great advice on this. i was afraid when i started this project i'd get platitudes or cliches, love each ore or that sort of thing. instead they have concrete advice. one of the most important things they say we believe in an american society opposites
attract. pretty women or beauty and the beast. >> not so much. they say pick somebody a lot like you who shares core values. they say that you're going to have a better chance with somebody who's pretty similar to you and research bears that out as well. >> they also say that if your friends and the people you love and trust don't like your partner that should be a big old warning sign to you that a lot of people ignore. >> over and over you hear somebody falls in love and showily but surely their friends say you should back off, i don't like him so much. the response would be, hey, wait a minute why are you trying to spoil my chance of happiness. the elders say if they don't like your partner, there may be a reason. those say i wish i would have listened to friends and family. so you need to take that kind of stuff seriously. >> some people told you to put
your spouse ahead of your kids. >> right. now they don't mean like that that you wouldn't hurry yourself in front of a train to save your kids. of course, they believe that. but they also say it's like that line in the airplane. put your own oxygen mask on first and put your kids on. if your relationship isn't a good one you're not going to do that much good for your kids and they're modeling their lifelong romantic relationship on yours. a lot have told me they get lost in the middle age blur for kids and work and forget to take time for each other. a date night and carving out time for yourself so you really don't loose touch in the child rearing years. >> t's interesting how you think of yourself. do you put yourself as wife first, mother, how do you prioritize those things. you try to think about your spouse in terms of priority. i think the thing that they have
is conflict. pick the right time. if your spouse isn't a morning person don't address the issues then. one of the advises of finish line in marriage is timing. also one of the worst things they argue that happens in relationship is when person a says i don't want to talk about this anymore and person b says, we're staying right here and we're going to hash this out. >> or say let's take a break and talk about it later. you have a whole chapter about keeping the spark alive and sex and intimacy. you said a lot about the people you studied. >> i said truthfully i talked to older people about sex and it's amazing how much they'll open up about it. you know, young people think and
worry about the sexless older years and it's really not true. the main thing that keeps older people from active sex lives is not having a partner. these folks view intimacy extremely important. they say it's for recreation not procreation as one said or a tasty side dish but it's very important. >> why not the main dish. >> they say it really stays there and their view is young people worry way too much about this that actually this is the part of life that grows and expands and even new ideas of intimacy develops. ite verse positive for someone turning 60. >> my hero was lucy who at 95 is dating a younger guy, 86. i keep thinking keep hope alive. >> i interviewed hundreds and i didn't have my jaw opened but i met a 90-year-old. she died and moved into assisted

to keep doing this. i go what a privilege. >> his latest privilege is a treat for the audience as well. in the theory of everything eddie transforms himself into the study of physicist stephen hawking. he takes a viewer on hawking's real life love of love and loss as he battles a debilitating disease als. >> well done, doctor. >> thank you. >> how did you capture that so dead on for most of us who don't know anything about stephen hawking and how he moved? >> thank you for being kind about it. really for me it was a sort of two-way process. i had so much documentary information or videos on an ipad of him and i spent so long in front of the mere trying to replicate his favorite muscles and really trying to get a sense of who he was. it was less lines and more learning to act because as
steven's muscles stopped working on his face he uses any muscle left muscles we wouldn't ordinarily use as his expression. >> my name is steven hawking. >> it's american. >> is that a problem? >> and when you meet steven he has the most wonderful unexpected humor and wit and love of life and this kind of misschievous glint in his eye and that for me was the element i wanted to try to capture. >> you had to be nervous about meeting him. >> terrified. >> yes. intimidated like cooking for julia childs almost. >> exactly, exactly. >> were you nervous meeting him? did you sleep? >> i didn't sleep. i had an hour with stephen first. it takes a lot for him to talk
so there were a lot of long silences. i hate awkward silences. i spent the first 40 minutes telling stephen hawking about stephen hawking. he was looking at me. >> let me tell you about you, stephen. >> i've known you for about four months. he spent 73 years old. he was in creditably generous. that for me was one of the great, great experiences of my life meeting him. >> oweyou see how many men's shirts and bow ties glow more than the women's dresses. >> yes. >> do you know why? >> why? >> tide. >> i notice your shoes. clearly you make a couple of bucks and you could get new shoes. >> these are old friends. you'll borrow beautiful clothes
and i'll get a response. you look great, but what's with the shoes. >> what is your answer? please tell me there's a story. >> they're like the old pair of jeans that you can never quite let go. they are me. i can't possibly let go. >> eddie, i can touch your foot right there. >> damn. there's a hole there. i can sew them up for the 15@time. next time i'll cuddle with them and sleep with them. >> are they battered oil shoes? >> they're like my old pal. >> reporter: eddie has yet to make a history in hollywood but already it seems his reputation precedes him. while playing marius in the big screen adaptation of "les mis," tom hoover paid him the highest
