this is the "cbs evening news." good evening, i'm jim axelrod. this is the western edition of our broadcast. tonight, france is on high alert and in deep mourning after the terror attacks in paris that killed 17 people. french police are searching for a 26-year-old frenchwoman, common-law wife of one of the suspects shot dead yesterday investigators say hayat boumediene may be in syria having left france days before the attacks. meanwhile the phrase #jesuischarlie, "i am charlie," a reference to the french satirical magazine "charlie hebdo" targeted wednesday, continues to spread around the globe. this is outside the french embassy today in bucharest romania, look at the banner over a bridge in venice, in this a memorial gathering in prague. we have two reports tonight the beginning with elizabeth palmer in paris. >> reporter: if the terrorists thought their attacks would
6:02 pm
spread fear and intimidation they were wrong. in fact, the killings have brought the french people together in a rare display of solidarity and defiance. today they took to the streets and cities across the country to defend freedom of speech and the rule of law. france remains on high security alert with extra troops drafted into paris, including paratroopers mingling with tourists at the eiffel tower. all day flowers were laid near the kosher supermarket, the scene of the deadly siege. it has been confirmed that as the commandos moved in yesterday, they knew something the hostage taker didn't. an employee had hidden 15 customers, including a two-year- old in a fridge. i switched off the light in the freezer, he said, and i told them to keep calm.
6:03 pm
in the end, they all escaped with their lives. all over france on this, the jewish sabbath, the prayers of the community were for the four innocents shot by the terrorists amady coulibaly early in the siege, as night fell a crowd formed outside of the supermarket, people wanted to pay their respects and show they are not afraid. he was a friend, one of the dead, a 21-year-old student from tunisia. he is deeply upset by what the french president called an appalling anti-semitic act. it is visceral he told me, i just had to show up to say it is intolerable, this kind of hatred. but tonight, thousands of parisians not only jews, but people of all faiths, joined the vigil, convinced that only tolerance and unity would pull the country through this dark hour. and tomorrow, jim, that conviction will be on display
6:04 pm
again in an absolutely massive march that is probably going to draw in excess of a million people as well as leaders from around the world. >> axelrod: elizabeth palmer reporting for us tonight from paris. liz, thank you. clarissa ward with more information about the missing suspect hayat boumediene and her ties to terror. >> reporter: for french authorities, hayat boumediene may hold the key to figuring out if her late partner supermarket shooter amady coulibaly and the kouachi brothers responsible for wednesday's massacre at a satirical magazine were part of a bigger terrorist cell in france. it is not yet known whether the men coordinated their attacks with each other, but hayat boumediene exchanged 500 phone calls with kouachi in 2014. she has no criminal record, but she has previously been

fighting against american troops in iraq, raising questions about why authorities were not following him more closely. investigators are now racing to get a clearer picture of how these attacks were executed. but for the moment there arefo more questions than answers. clarissa ward, cbs news, paris. >> axelrod: juan zarate is the cbs news senior national security analyst. juan, french, american, other counter-terrorism officials, what are they worried about most right now? >> jim, in the first instance french officials are worried about containing and preventing any further attacks, understanding any networks or cells, individuals who are tied to those who perpetrated the attacks in paris and understanding who else may beo motivated by these attacks to begin plotting against the west. >> axelrod: do the events of this week require any change in thinking or strategy on the part of the united states in facing the terror threat?
6:07 pm
>> unfortunately, the attacks reinforce the reality that we face a more diverse and dangerous terrorist landscape. there are more geographies terrorists are coming and thousands of foreign fighters flowing to the middle east and individuals saturated by the narrative and ideology of terrorist groups and so the reality is it is a more dangerous environment, and so the idea that we can contain the threat in a more passive way after the wars in iraq and afghanistan may have to be questioned. and also may accelerate the things that we do to diminish the safe haven that groups like the islamic state or even al qaeda in the arabian peninsula in yemen may have so it may force us to be more aggressive what we do against the ideology of the terrorist groups. >> axelrod: juan zarate in our washington bureau, juan, thank you. >> thank you, jim. >> axelrod: now to the terror in africa which is reaching a new level of chilling if that is possible. the group boko haram is

candidate could that include jail time, he could face felony charges for spilling classified secrets to his mistress while he was director of the cia. here is julia goldman. here is julinna goldman. >> reporter: the federal investigation stems from an affair petraeus had with his biographer paula broadwell and whether he gave her access to an cia e-mail and other classified documents. shortly after their relationship came to light in november 2012 petraeus resigned his post as c.i.a. director, they learned of to the career as a socialite andri friend of petraeus asked the bureau to look into a series of threatening e-mails, agents traced those e-mails to broadwell and opened a separate investigation where they foundn classified information on her computer. both petraeus and broadwell have previously denied that he provided her with classified materials. days after his resignation president obama said he had no evidence petraeus disclosed classified information that would harm national security. >> my main hope right now is
6:11 pm
that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single sidenote on what has otherwise been ant extraordinary career. >> reporter: now attorney general eric holder must decide whether to pursue criminal charges which could send one of the nation's most decorated military leaders to prison. petraeus, a retired four-star general, commanded u.s. forces in iraq and in afghanistan where he and broadwell spent time together while she researched her book, "all in: the education of david petraeus" during her publicity tour she did a number of interviews including this appearance on "the daily show". >> the concern is someone in his position would be about legacy and he also came it from a military point of view and wanted to help me with the project. >> reporter: republican leaders are calling for the justice department to resolve this soon and in a statement senators john s mccain and lindsey graham said
