their corridors this morning. the space agency says the situation is now under control. >> the astronauts moved out of the american part of the station. they're now taking space on the other opposite side with three russian astro naughts. prosecute irs say 54 people have been. across france people lined up this morning to buy copies of "charlie hebdo's" new edition. elizabeth palmer is outside the headquarters in paris. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning, as you can see behind me the mound of flowers oust side the offices have conned to grow. there are hundreds of bouquets and also pens which is the new symbol of defense of freedom of
expression. people are still coming to pay their respects and to read the notes of condolences. of course it's impossible to verify the truth of the claims in it, but we do know that it has come from al qaeda's official media arm. in it one of the leaders of ail die in peninsula said his organization chose the magazine as the charge for the attack and plan and paid for it. new video shows once again the cold determination of the kouachi brothers as they come face-to-face with a police car during their getaway after the killings. they opened up on the police who retreat and the kouachis brazenly drive away. security forces are now reviewing their operations over the three days of shootings and hostage takings, both at the printing plant outside paris and
in the suburban kosher supermarket. the investigation is wide ranging. police are looking for six accomplices suspected to be members of the cell to who helped with the attack. the man seen on security camera video with boumeddiene and any this man had with the kouachi brothers. overnight the first bundles of this week's "charlie hebdo" with the controversial cover were shipped to news stands across the country but they sold like hotcakes and by mid morning there were none left though they have promised there will be a second wave tomorrow. one of the hard-working men was at the newsstand by 7:00.
they're rationed to one copy. gayle? >> all right, elizabeth thank you. a cbs news poll out this morning shows 57% of americans think another u.s. terror attack is very likely in the next few months. worries are rising after the paris massacre and after isis murdered two americans and three british workers captured in syria. bob, good morning. what is the significance of this claim, do you think? >> this is think because it's a full-throated plan by al qaeda in peninsula. this erases all doubting about who's behind the attack. what al qaeda says in the tape, look, this was our idea, we paid for it we trained these guys, we even picked the target. this is significance because aq
aww p in ap in the past has tried with the underwear bomber in 2009 and the printer cartridges. this is a much lower sophistication attack and had deadly results. it might indicate a change in thinking. maybe they're lowering their aspirations just a little bit to settle for what is possible because even though this was not the big grand attack as they always hoped for, it was devastating in their point of view. >> one of the highest are warning this is quote/unquote, an act of war. how are authorities monitoring that? >> i think they're worried and they should be because the tape this morning, the leader that speaks on the tape makes it clear aqap is monitoring what's
happening around the world, around france. there's a reference on the tape of looking at the leaders who came together. they said look the suffering is not over. it might be in washington or new york but there are overt threats here. all the intelligence services and law enforcement agencies across the country have to raise their guard. they have to be more aggressive. they'll push buttons that will make people uncomfortable to figure out where the next threat will come from. >> thanks very much. they honored three officers killed in the terror attacks. >> something this big and this horrific and international is symbolic and also meaningful. >> deputy police chief michael downing is from nypd. police from europe came to new

the first real insight into this trend came when a 13-year-old girl refused to detonate a suicide pack. the girl was arrested by police and told them her father had girn her to boco haram probably for financial game. she said she would go to paradise and threatened to kill her when she resisted being strapped. children are in ready supply in boca ha ran camps and sources tell us they could be the ultimate sources killed. all abducted children taken as the spoils of war. there has been global condemnation. >> the use of a child to detonate a bomb is not only morally repugnant but is egregious under the law.
>> reporter: they sabowy bocao haram will not get away with this but despite they continue relentlessly. in a run-up to the pole next valentine's day, it's expect thad the bloodshed will only increase, gayle. >> thank you very much debra. an ohio bartender is arrested for plotting to kill speaker john boehner. court documents showed he wanted to shoot or poison the speaker in the cincinnati suburb. chip reid is in washington with that story. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. for more than five years michael robert hoyt allegedly served drinks to house speaker john boehner near a country club in cincinnati but after being fired

hoyt wrote he could have poisoned his wine while serving him. in response to the charges boehner's spokesperson issued a statement saying speaker boehner is aware of this situation and sincerely thanks the fbi, capital police and local authorities in ohio for their efforts. hoyt voluntarily entered a psychiatric ward at a local hospital for observation after telling them he was told by jesus christ. norah? >> chip, what a strange story. thank you so much. this morning the republican presidential race is heating up. no one is an official candidate next but more than a half dozen big names are starting to get organized. nancy nancy cordon is in washington. >> in this case the lead card is jeb bush.

creditlet. intelligence officials say the kouachi brothers the men behind the up in assault received training and cash from al qaeda. sources say in 2011 al qaeda gave said kouachi $20,000 to finance a future operation. last friday just before both brothers were killed by french police cherif kouachi told the french network bfm that their attacks were directed by al qaeda. but then came the suggestion that al qaeda and isis were working together. amedy coulibaly, the isis follower who took jewish hostages in a supermarket last friday said on tape before the attack he was working in concert with the kouachi brothers. some of this was done together and some of it alone, he says in order to have a greater impact. experts who track jihadist groups say it's likely coulibaly
and the kouachi brothers worked together last friday because they were friends, not because of an isis al qaeda alliance. aaron zella of a washington institute calls them rivals. is it too strong to say they're enemies? >> i believe at the top ends of the organizations they're clearly enemies. it's clear the kouachi brothers and coulibaly teamed up and think that's due to their personal friendships and relationships going back to a decade. >> reporter: but isis wants credit for the french attack in its quest for recruits and intelligence. there seems to be a race between these two groups to claim credit for all of the attacks. why is that? >> think what we see now, ever since especially the rise of the islamic state, there's a competition for these two group whofs is the lead over this jihadi movement. >> al qaeda's statement today
praises the attack but then dismisses the attacks as coincidental to al qaeda's efforts. experts see this all as a dangerous escalation as they compete over claims at who's better at attacking the west. charlie? >> thanks. this morning the american section of the international space station was evacuated and is shut down for now. they reacted to a reading of a small pneumonia leak early this morning. two americans and an italian put on masks and moved to the russian side of the station. officials say all six crew members including russians are safe. nasa is working to confirm whether a leak actually happened. they say the astronauts responded to a pressure increase in the station's cooling system. a utah boy is safe this morning after a terrified car theft. the 3-year-old was waiting inside his mother's car yesterday when somebody hopped in and drove away.

pain? >> well, you know at one point you don't want people to suffer but in general we're giving a lot of narcotics. i think what this report from the government showed is that there aren't a lot of standard path ways. they don't tell you how much to give, when to go up a dose, down a dose, doctors are doing it without a lot of training. narcotics as we all know have a lot of side effects. 17,000 deaths a few years ago from narcotics and over 100,000 admissions. so while they can help pain in a short run, there aren't real study showing they weren't past three or six months. the studies haven't been done so we're kind of flying blind in the medical world. >> that's what would be disserving doctor, r. agus that you're tagging all this medication and spending all this money. what do you do? >> there's the first mainstream movie talking about somebody with chronic pain and that's
called " eded eded "kate" with jennifer aniston and they had a study that came out from harvard. flan nation also involves areas where there is chronic pain. it gives us real hope. i think the real message here is we need to pay attention as a country. this is costing over $600 billion to our country, so we've got to put resources to research, do long-term studies and figure out a new way here because we are all suffering. >> i know. as the nha says this is silent and it's exploded to other types of treatments. it's very real. >> i'm with you. we need new ideas and a new war. >> a great plug for "kate." she was great in it and it shows you how devastating it can be. thank you very much dr. agus.

prime member you're going to buy posters, books everything so that's how they're going to make their money. >> and they are getting a lot more content that they're streaming. >> right. >> they've gone full out for this. >> that's one of the reasons they lost so much and this is another reason why this is good news. investors were upset, what's all this dumping money into video and will you really get it back? we'll look at the economics once we get more data. >> but, nick isn't tv really changing? i was at the golden globes the other day. a lot of us watched it on tv. and so it's brand-new ball game how we get and watch tv. >> it's a brand-new ball game and it's going to become brand-new every year. every level is changing. so the way we make it is just watching. we don't watch it just on the tv. we watch it on all different kinds of screens. so the market is totally opening

a story. >> writing talent is a gift. it's nothing i ever earned. the only thing i can earn is the craftsmanship with which i do it, but i can take pride in the nagt i can do it because it's something i could do. >> he's got his trusty old computer. >> i got chills when he said he doesn't have one happy memory of his dad. it shows how he's turned that into something. i wanted to know is he married. he's been married and for a long time. that made me feel better. >> something in the previous segment says something about the interior of people's's lives. >> you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll have surprises when we come back.
norah said we're getting a surprise. >> that's fo in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or
any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.
good morning i'm erika von tiehl. we have an update on our breaking news right now, police chase in collindale delaware county. that chase ended at chester pike and cherry street a little after 7:00 this morning. pursuit started when officers tried to pull over a suspect and that driver sped away. suspect hit at least one car and tried to run over, tried to runaway rather once the the chase ended. that suspect is in custody. police say they found a gun in his car. this is just in bensalem police say this man is one of two burglary suspects who led them on a car chase overnight. the authorities arrested 28 year-old alfonso payton of philadelphia. they say he and another suspect crashed their car in the ditch on state road and
tennis avenue and then ran away. the the the second suspect is still on the run this morning. lets check with katie right now and see how our forecast is going. we have a lot to talk about. >> absolutely, mainly down toward shore points southern new jersey and delaware where we are finding the problems here this morning in terms of the weather impacting any travel plans that you do have. when we start off by taking you out to mobile three right now garden state parkway is still looking slick. know has begun to stick here. but that is not the just golden state parkway it is basically anywhere around those cher point that this storm has had an impact. even they you can see is there i back edge to it, brunt of the moisture has since moved out to sea. i really don't think philadelphia will to have worry about any precipitation this time around. damage has been done here. once we total it all up we are looking at a coat to go an inch, maybe locally little bit more than that across southern
tear of our area. so if you are traveling perhaps, on, northeast extension or any of those northern highways, in worries, just cloud out there. that is something that we have got going for us here. further south that is rule of thumb where we will find precipitation. 23 degrees at the airport. thirty-one ac. thirty-two wildwood. any between those points where we say mobile three travel you are close enough to freezing that may be slick. keep that in mind out and about this morning. temperatures in philadelphia really aren't going to get a chance to go past freezing mark but as we said it doesn't look like it will have a chance to reach us here in the city. by tomorrow high pressure has taken back the lead we are in the the clear and will maryland rate up on the thermometer and we will flirt with 50 by sunday although the trade off there is there may be a new coastal storm developing at that point but if it that is mild it will likely just be a a rain producer. we will keep an eye on that, vittoria. >> good morning, everyone. as we keep an eye on the roads as katie was talking about traveling in the new jersey on
the new jersey turnpike as well as the area surrounding shore points you do want to be mindful of those slick spots and snow but we are not seeing too much volume. if i can give you a bright spot that is all i can give i you. take it easy. take it ease the schuylkill expressway west bun a septa bus accident at belmont avenue off ramp. traveling on the schuylkill westbound you will fine delays approaching montgomery drive, out the through to just about the stretch of 476 and even some volume approaching vine street expressway. you will have eastbound volume as well. over to the 42 freeway north bound side starting to lighten up but around 295, still anticipate delays. the also anticipate close another of chester pike between hook road and macdade boulevard. also police activity at chester pike and cherry streets as erika was talking about a few minutes ago. a as we look at our travel times rush hour mass transit may be your best bet but i-95 schuylkill and 422 all slow erika. >> that is "eyewitness news" for now talk philly coming up
