all of them were inside the apartment at the time. we assume so. what we can say for sure, though, three people, three men, were taken into custody inside the apartment, we're told by police and by the prosecutor that a man and a woman were taken into custody outside of the apartment. the identities of all of these people at this point still unclear as the investigation continues. of course what police are really focusing on right now is abdelhamid abaaoud, the mastermind of the attacks, was among those inside p. if so, we expect to hear a lot more in the hours to come. >> and jonathan, you're in saint-denis. you can tell me what this >> reporter: yeah, the neighborhoodcan you tell me what this >> reporter: yeah, the neighborhood, it's a pretty quiet neighborhood from those that we spoke with. chaotic scene. this neighborhood has definitely been the focus of many of these raids over the past 48 hours. as i was telling you, about 300 raids have been conducted, a
number of those conducted here. and of course earlier this morning, that's when this raid was triggered by that gunfire and by that suicide vest that went off. again, though, very active this morning as the investigation continues. >> all right. jonathan vigliotti in saint-denis, thank you very much. coming up after your local news on "cbs this morning," consumer reports looks at a possible link between the rise of super bugs in antibiotics and of course more coverage from paris.
