5:03 am
isis did it. that is what french president francois hollande said this morning about the attackers who brought terror in the night to the city of light. he calls it an act of war, and isis wasted no time answering. this morning the islamic state claimed responsibility. in a statement it says the blood shed is response to france's campaign against its fighters calling it an insult to islam. isis threatened to keep targeting france. >> at least 127 were killed in the relentless attacks. at venues ranging from a soccer stadium to a concert hall. pron president hollande was among those rushed to safety. overnight hollande mobilized troops to patrol the streets of paris after the deadly vio d the world is scrambling to help. president obama promises the u.s. will stand with its
5:04 am
oldestoldest ally. >> president hollande says the killers got help from inside the country. many victims were caught in the bataclan theater where panic unfolded. >> the theater became a battle ground as police stormed the building where a night of music turned to madness. that's where we start with elizabeth palmer. good morning. >> good morning. well this is a traumatized neighborhood this morning. the cons ert hall in the bat cl clan is about a block where from where i am. first of all, scores of bodies had to be brought out, and now it is a massive crime scene. but it is by far where the greatest massacre happened in a
5:05 am
whole night of violence. >> by the time the police unit stormed the concert hall after midnight the attack has been going on for two hours. four men opened fire on a sellout crowd of fans of the california band "eagles of death metal." confusion became a frenzy. >> i turned around like everyone else thinking it was part of the show and then everyone went down pushing each up against each other to escape. >> some fled out the back door dragging the bodies of victims. in the end at least 80 died and so did the attackers. three detonated suicide vests and the fourth was killed by the police. a couple of miles away in the main soccer stadium, 80,000 spectators watching a game heard three explosions. all bombs going off in a nearby street. at least four people died there. at first the spectators milled around the field waiting for the
5:06 am
all clear. and then filed out singing the french national anthem in collective defines of terrorism. france's president, francois hollande who had been at the game was moved to safety. later visibly shaken he told the nation, terrorists must be will shown they will face a united france that will not let itself be intimidated. and yet another attack, terrorists at and around three restaurants killing 18 people. this is the deadliest attack in europe since the madrid train bombs in 2004 but it is the second in paris in less than a year. back in january extremists attacked the satirical magazine "charlie hebdo" here as well as the jewish supermarket. isis has now claimed responsibility in a post and it does look authentic. it comes from their official media arm and says
5:07 am
unequivocally, eight brothers armed with automatic weapons wearing explosive belts fire their weapons into the heart of paris last night. anthony. >> elizabeth palmer. thanks. you can see shock and confusion in the faces of appreciatiparis they tried to understand before realizing they were targets of an attack. elaine cobbe has been on scene all night and also at the bataclan theater. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president hollande calls the attacks cowardly and promises the fight against the terrorists will be without mercy. french security forces poured in overnight. as the city remained on edge. people afraid to go out. this woman managed to escape the shooting at the concert hall. >> we hid for two hours she
5:08 am
said. it was as if people were being tortured. it was terrible. they were shooting them. it was butchery. carnage. dead people everywhere. i'm just very shocked another survivor said. very shocked more than anything else. this man was caught in one of the suicide blasts at the soccer stadium. saved from flying debris only by his cell phone. "i was crossing and boom," he said. it exploded just in front of me. everything went to pieces. french president francois hollande today declared three days of national mourning. "france is strong," hollande said. she is wounded and nothing can damage her despite the grief. they tried to piece together the terrible events. scott macdougal was also at the soccer stadium. at first he didn't understand the scope of the violence. >> we thought it was
5:09 am
something -- we thought it was a hoax. something that had gone wrong. we didn't realize -- >> as officials scramble to regain control, concerned friends and family took to social media looking for loved ones. but amongst the devastation there was defiance. fans leaving the soccer match last night sang the french national anthem. and in the center of paris this morning candles were lit in memory of the victims. some paris schools have classes saturday. they are closed today. as traditional university buildings. and many others >> elaine cobbe, thank you. we have a photographer for national geographic, stephen, thank you for joining us. good morning. >> good morning. >> you know, we heard from so
5:10 am
many eyewitnesss and so many of them have said initially they had no concept of what was going on. they had no awareness, it was just panic. you were on the 50 yard line at that match. did you have any idea what was happening? >> well, we heard the explosions. we thought it was part of some show. we started to leave suddenly. and it was -- it was a stampede of people running and screaming. i thought i was going to die. i thought that my life was going to an end. because i was getting pushed down to the ground. and eventually, i was able to get behind a wall. but it was complete mayhem and chaos. >> you took some photos with your eye phone last night. i think we'll look at some of them. you obviously didn't have a very clear idea of what was happening. what was the crowd saying when they heard the explosions and people started moving? >> well, slowly people started
5:11 am
getting messages on their phones. and after some minutes people started to leave. and then people started to flood on to the field because they didn't know where to go. i decided to actually leave the stadium. but when we got outside it was just bedlam and just chaos. i thought -- it reminded me of 9/11. i was at ground zero on that particular day and it was just people fleeing for their lives. i saw people getting knocked down. it was kind of a horrific scene. it took hours for this area to clear. there were police and soldiers and ambulances and firemen just all over the area. until -- >> you mentioned that stampede. how did you actually get out of the stadium with so many people who were rushing towards the exit? >> well, i went out, i got literally pushed back in because of the stampede.
5:12 am
i mean, people were charming around like wild animals. it was just crazy. and then i went back in and i stayed in the stadium for another two hours before i was able to leave. because there was no way to get out. >> all right. stephen mccurry, thank you for being with us this morning and it sounds like a horrific scene at the stadium outside of paris. the attacks were followed by a heavy tightening of security across france. paris is on lockdown as the president french takes dramatic action. we see the new security measures. >> good morning. france declared a state of emergency, french president francois hollande convened a special security meeting early today with top government and security officials. meanwhile, police in paris searched for possible accomplices. 1,500 french military troops have been deployed across paris, the city practically shut down after the massacre that killed more than 125 people in multiple locations.
5:13 am
today, paris is essentially on lockdown. key facilities like libraries and schools are closed and some bus lines are shut down. police are urging people to stay indoors and they're calling for a halt to public events. soldiers have been deployed to key sites around paris including the parliament building and religious sites. paris public prosecutor said it's early in the investigation but they're working on trying to figure out more about the terrorist and how they planned the attack, including if there are still accomplices or co-conspirators at large. france has been the target of multiple terror plots this year. in january, the attack on the "charlie hebdo" magazine office shocked the city and the world, sparking a lockdown and curfew and in august, three americans
5:14 am
thwarted a gunman on a train headed for amsterdam. there's been amazement expressed, paris was considered a place with robust counterterrorism coverage, but this raises vulnerabilities not only here here but in the u.s. as well. security was increased in new york. officers from the counterterrorism response team and other special units were deployed to popular tourist sites and the french consulate. new york city is considered a top terror target. officials cautioned the beefed up security is not because of any threats. >> for more we are joined by michael morale, and john miller, the former correspondent, the deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism at the new york city police department. good morning to you both. michael, let me start with you. as jeff begaze mentioned this
5:15 am
raises a lot of questions about vulnerabilities here. what do we know about the attacks so far? >> so i think the place to start here is the context. elizabeth mentioned this was the largest terrorist attack in western europe since the madrid bombings, the second largest since 9/11. president hollande said this was isis and that isis directed this. if that's true, this would be the first isis directed attack in the west. so this is a huge deal. >> you know, john, we mentioned that new york you'll see more and more police officers. if you're in a major city, you'll see more police officers today. are there any specific threats at this point? >> no. >> so the increased presence is basically for -- >> this is a counterterrorism overlay. this is a plan that we literally keep on the shelf. and it's adjusted for the individual situation. so after the "charlie hebdo" attacks, we guarded certain
5:16 am
french government installations and journalism locations especially places that have printed some of the same material. in this attack, we immediately looked at it, we took out the "charlie hebdo" package, took the french government location, but we also added in places that looked like the targets. so crowded places, times square, rockefeller center, grand central. places where people and tourists gathered on a friday night. with tourists gathered on a friday night. >> we're looking at the series of synchronized attacks that occurred across the city, at restaurants, at a stadium, at a theater. what does it tell us about the planning and the intelligence of this? and the fact that french authorities didn't pick up any of it? >> so this is very worrying. what really strikes me about this attack is the operational security.
5:17 am
you are talking about multiple operatives. bomb, simultaneous attacks, you are talking about keeping that under the radar from french intelligence and french security. that is a very difficult thing to do. it is very sophisticated operational security. that is what suggests to me that this was directed rather than simply a group of self radicalized individuals who came together. and in terms of the potential for such an attack here, i'm deeply concerned about that. the fbi over the last year has arrested a number of individuals who are plotting attacks here. and there is over a hundred ongoing fbi investigations into jihadists here. so i believe that it will eventually happen here. and we are going to have to stay focused on this in a way that we haven't been yet i believe. >> i mean, those are frightening words to here. and you look at the places, the six locations, knowing a the con sertd hall, a cambodian are
5:18 am
restaurant, the bar, a sports stadium on the list. not specific locations anyone would have thought. >> you have put your thumb right on it. we looked at the target picture last night. we did our target selection in terms of where we would put additional resources. but if the attack was on the president's palace and the eiffel tower and a bunch of other places, you know, that makes sense in terms of predictability for security. when you have a bunch of random places that you could find in any big city, that is a real challenge about how to spread resources. and i want to underline what mike morel said. in april we arrested two people for planning a pressure cooker attack in the name of isil and other groups.
5:19 am
in june we arrested nine people through the joint terrorism task force of the fbi and a number of people in new york city for a plot to attack the fourth of july fireworks with a pressure cooker bomb in the name of isil to behead a target in new york city in the name of isil. so these are the attacks that you do have the intelligence on that you are able to stop that don't make the headlines. but when you look at what happened last night here is a group of people that flew under the radar and probably did so using these communications apps that can't be seen by law enforcement. can't be opened by court order that are this new design that are becoming increasingly popular. >> john miller, michael morel % thank you both for being with us. president obama expressed his deepest condolences to the people of france and offered whatever help the french might
5:20 am
need. chip reed was in the briefing room. good morning. >> reporter: president obama spoke to president hollande last night and offered his unwavering support. just as he did earlier here in the evening at the white house. >> this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. we've gone through these kind of episodes our sever s ourselves. and whenever these kind of attacks have happened we've always been able to count on the french people. >> he went to say france is our oldest ally dating back to the american revolution and has always been one of our closest allies. he said americans know all too well what it feels like. the president is scheduled to leave later for the g 20 economic summit in turkey. but obviously this could overshadow the agenda. french president hollande has decided to stay y vatican is coe
5:21 am
attacks in paris in, quote, the most radical way. their describe the violence as an attack of peace for all humanity. he goes on the to say it requires a decisive supportive response on the part of all of us as we counter the spread of homicideal hatred. >> it is about 21 after the hour. now here is a look at the weather for your weekend. coming up the latest from paris on the terror attacks and

5:29 am
5:30 am
we learn this morning the terror attack that claimed more than 120 lives is the work of isis. france's president made the announcement and isis claimed responsibility soon after. a syrian passport was found on the body of one of the suicide bombers. welcome back to cbs this morning. >> bombers targeted places of entertainment, including a soccer match. they exploded bombs right outside the national stadium. >> neither the players or the fans knew what was happening. >> some thought the blasts were fieworks of celebration not
5:31 am
bombs. >> president francois hollande says the massacre was prepared, organized and planned from abroad with help from inside france. the city turned into a battle field with hundreds of people running for escape. but at this bataclan theater they didn't get that option. music fans became hostages, trapped inside a concert venue. >> reporter: it must have been absolutely terrible. the police operation to take back the theater if you like happened in two stages. first, they just surrounded it. by the time they stormed it, the attack had been going to on for almost two hours. there is amazing video shot by a journalist from the big french newspaper lemond. he was in a building across the alley. and you can see that he's captured people having found the stage door making a dash for freedom. and then dragging the bodies of
5:32 am
wounded or even dead people down the alley. inside it was chaos. the people who did get out reported that there was a sort of a balcony. and quite a few people were up there overlooking the main floor. they were able to see what the people in the audience weren't able to see when the shooting started. that these gunmen were spraying the room with bullets. and so the people on the balcony were able to find the exits, and find storerooms to hide in. they were many of the ones who is lives were saved. for more we're joined from washington by national security analyst. good morning. what does intelligence take away from this attack? >> you have a new adaptation. you have the ability of the islamic state to project into a western capital, to organize a very sophisticated attack and to do so under the radar of some of
5:33 am
the best intelligence services in the world. that is troubling news. and certainly a difficult methodology that we're now witnessing. it also suggests that these terrorists are realizing they can hit strategic soft targets in ways that have significant impact. they don't have to hit the eiffel tower thasmt don't have to hit a government building. they can stage this kind of attack and bring a major western capital to the point of paralysis. >> why france? it's ten months since "charlie hebdo" and 27 people killed in that office and the supermarket. why has france become such a hot spot is this. >> keep in mind that france has been a long-standing point of attack for terrorists. they have had pockets of radicalization among their own population. and in recent years they have been very worried about the population of foreign fighters
5:34 am
flowing into the war zones and then coming back. >>5sotheas .ut .thehyse e.ore
5:35 am
and syria. it is now a problem in the west. in addition it now moves the battle field. the battle field is now global. this is a problem in the west and in place where is the islamic state is planting its flag around the world. to include the radicalized population in places like paris and even god forbid the united states. >> the attacks seem to target symbolic locations, the world trade center for example. now we're looking at what appear to be random targets. i'm sure they were chosen. but a cambodian restaurant for example. how do you begin to defend that is this. >> this is incredibly difficult. it is hard to defend all "soft" targets, civilian targets, where
5:36 am
people will congregate in the evening for or a sports venue. that is very difficult. and certainly in a free society you don't want to lock down the ability of citizens to enjoy their lives. so this is a very difficult problem. it is also part of the strategy of these terrorist groups where they have decided they want to try to do these attacks are to get their followers to actually attack in place whenever they can, wherever they can. but certainly is a coordinated attack. and you see it can be done even if you hit major soft targets in a place like paris. >> new york is certainly a strong potential target at this point. even as there is no credible threat. as a lot of people wake up they are going the see an increased police presence in major cities. why is that happening right now. >> >> one, the authorities don't know what they don't know.
5:37 am
they are obviously always worried about potential threads to an attack like this. potential coordination of broader attacks. they are also worried about individuals who are already radicalized who may be inspired to attack in the wake of something like this. more importantly i they they want to deter anyone thinking about doing something like and certainly to reassure that public. we need to be vigilant. >> thank you. all this -- rather, there is no indication of a link, but the attacks took place in france just hourgs after a targeted u.s. drone strike in syria apparently killing the isis executioner known as jihadi john. chip reid is tracking the story. >> with his angry rants and masked face muhammed emwazi game a global symbol of the brutality of isis.
5:38 am
>> my knife will continue to strike the next of your people. >> for all the world to see jihadi john, as heecame known, beheaded several westerners, including three americans. james foley, steven sotloff and aid worker peter ckosig. the pentagon is, quote, reasonably certain emwazi was killed by a held fire missile strike from a drone in raqqa syria. and emwazi was born in kuwait but grew up in mostly in london, where he became radicalized. he left for syria in 2012013. critics have long argued it's done far too little to fight isis. >> i think it is clear evidence that we are making important progress in one element of our
5:39 am
strategy, which is to apply pressure to the isil leadership. >> outside his new hampshire home, james foley's father john saw things differently. >> bombing him won't bring him back. it won't change the war. you know? we need to eliminate isis. not jihadi john. >> for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm chip reed in washington. >> we'll have more news in a moment. but first here a look at the weather for your weekend. ♪ up next, kurdish fighters push isis out of a strategic city in northern iraq. you are watching "cbs this

6:04 am
realized that maybe there was something -- something not right. but even then we thought maybe it was an isolated incident. we didn't even know how big it would be. yeah, it was quite terrifying. >> aurora, there was much confusion then. you ended up taking a taxi i think from the restaurant and ended up going by the bataclan theater. what was it like there? >> yes. well we -- we drove past the theater. and we were lucky enough to get a transport home in time. and it was terrifying. the cars were all jammed. and so we were stopped. and we were told to get down in the car, to sink as low as possible as we can into our seats and there were men with guns, military, right next to our windows pointing to shoot.
6:05 am
and i've never experienced anything like that before. it was -- it was very -- very f terrifying. my friends and i, we are all just very lucky and happy to be safe and okay. >> here in the united states we are hearing a lot of reports of how the people in paris were immediately responding, telling people just get into my apartment. throwing down sheets if they saw someone just to cover a body. did you see anyone in that frenetic scene? it's obviously still affecting you greatly. >> we -- we saw a lot of restaurants and cafes and places ushering people in to -- to protect them. the feeling of people uniting and coming together to help each other was really beautiful.
6:06 am
and it was comforting, i imagine. but also lots of people just completely unaware of what was going on in the surrounding area. because they had not heard news of it yet. and that scared me. because i knew what was happening. and it scared me to think that the people walking around without a clue of what was happening. and feeling safe, like i had done half an hour before. and -- and i wish i could have told them that "go inside." but i don't speak very good french. so i was a bit at loss there. >> aurora, thank you so much for being with us this morning on what was clearly a terribly distressing evening for everyone in paris last night. thank you. security in france was increased after the terror attacks. the french president took action. hundreds of extra soldiers are guarding paris this morning.

popular. >> michael morrell, the former number two at the cia joins us again from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> to this discussion that john miller was having and we were talking about. how disturbing is that this completely escaped the radar of french authorities? >> i think very disturbing. you had a number of individuals working together, putting bombs together. multiple locations. that takes a lot of planning. and that flew completely under the radar. a level of sophistication we have not seen since 2005. >> you e mention the sophistication. friday night, and bustling french city and you have them going after bars and restaurants and soccer stadiums. are those targets significant? >> i think the attackers had in

6:23 am
script has been flipped. the national security, and what to do about the terrorist threat to our allies and here at home will now be first up. and for the candidates it presents both an opportunity and a challenge. the challenge is to eject a new ideas and new sense of seriousness and focus about a topic that change as we go through each and every terrorist strike. and the in paris will also i believe catch a cloud over this psychologically. it will change the mood of the debate, take some of the feistiness. and opportunity for sanders and o'malley to inject a fresh idea or fleresh thought. the script has been flipped by events in paris.
6:24 am
and that will be the among if first things viewers will notice. >> we've been talking to our experts. we've been hearing this is a turning point in terms of this war. in particular because it was carried out on such excessable event venues. do you think that makes these candidates rethink all of their strategies to think this isn't the format? >> certainly this isn't going to be the format for some of the contentiousness that might have been there otherwise. and when i talked about the need to inject fresh thought into this? that tickpicks up on the point just made. this strike according to all the experts sifting through it now is of a different kind. it is of a different kind in development is and in execution. it is just a as terroristic and very broad in scope, and alarming in that sense. but it is going to require fresh ideas. and i would suggest bypassen

6:26 am
that the progressive wing of the democratic party which depends to be the larger voting congress in caucuses and primaries likes his message. and what he'd like to convey is he's always had that message. some of the positions hillary has recently taken are knnew. and bernie sanders would like to say then i'm your candidate. that's the more subtle message. but that is the strategy. >> given your knowledge of both candidates and really how viewers immediately respond, what do you think these candidates need to show in order for people to really say the polls might change? hillary clinton may be not in the commanding lead? >> well if we accept the premise that this is a moment that our country will look across the atlantic and see our friends, the french, dealing with this act of horror. they may ask to be more sober
