2:37 pm
are connected to these terrorist networks in paris there is some evidence. >> arrested while trying to cross from bulgaria into turkey, he is accused of kidnapping his son to go to syria. a second warrant accused him of participating in a criminal organization with a terrorist aim. authorities say he knew sharif kouachi. >> before leaving france, the suspect was in contact with one of the brothers several times. >> meanwhile, moore is emerging about the person who traveled with them, the partner of them. he is known to french intelligence. his older brother, mohammed, was sent to jail for his role in sending fighters to afghanistan. he argues mohammed could have

2:40 pm
depictions of mohammed by charlie hebdo in the past, this is not deliberately or needlessly offensive. that is why they have decided to publish it on its website. we will see whether the paper edition will carry it. the l.a. times and also usa today will publish it. in the no column, cnn which says it is taboo within islam and encourages viewers to google the image, but will not be publishing it. the new york times has also decided not to publish the latest front cover of charlie hebdo. nbc news, abc news have also decided not to do so. >> in other news, the united states is very much working with france to try to track down the suspects that are at large and have links to the kouachi brothers. what information do you have? >> in terms of intelligence
2:41 pm
sharing, the relationship has been a good one. what we are getting more than any in his information from u.s. intelligence officials speaking to their counterparts. that is filtering through from the white house. u.s. intelligence officials passed on the travel history of suspects to their french counterparts. we do not know where that is 1, 2, or all four suspects in this case. the impression one gets is that possibly the american intelligence services knew more about these suspects and what they might have been doing on french soil than the french intelligence services. so just a reminder the suspects, all three men, were on a terrorism watch list in the united states. they were on a no-fly list. once they are taken off surveillance in france, the united states services can't do
2:42 pm
much. the french defense is that france does not like to communicate on intelligence matters and that is maybe why more is filtering through from the american side. >> thanks for a. reporting from washington. in the wake of the paris attacks, and anti-islam movement in germany has been gaining ground. 25,000 people marched last night in protest as the islamic occasion --islamicification of europe. angela merkel joined community leaders to condemn the marches. she has come out against the so-called movement. >> we must note there are heat preachers. there are violent people who abuse religion for their own agenda. the terrible events in paris are a sad example of this. what we need to do is use all of the means at our disposal to
2:43 pm
combat intolerance and violence. >> joining me now is a person who is an expert in the extreme right in europe. thanks for being with us on france 24. has the far right succeeded in exploiting the paris attacks to draw supporters to its cause? >> i think whether they have succeeded, they have tried. we can see that in germany. although there were more counter demonstrations. we have seen that in the u.k.. so they are trying to exploit it. whether it has been successful only time will tell. >> a survey in germany before the paris attacks said 57% of non-muslims were frightened
2:44 pm
about islam and what it means for their society. are we sink a failure of mainstream politicians to address these fears? >> i don't think we are. i think we are seeing a failure of the media as well. we have seen in the past few years the build up of division in our community, in europe in general as well. and i think the tragic events last week, these horrific murders that took place in paris, but often the coverage has been putting the muslim community against the french community. we forget, the media and politicians, warning us against islamophobia and so on.
