this is next. and we begin tonight with breaking news. the focus on our city's security after a video released by isis implies that an attack here could be next. good evening everyone. i'm maurice did you boys. >> i'm chris -- i'm maurice dubois. >> i'm kristine johnson. cbs2 has chosen not to show the video. >> we have a live picture from times square where we are awaiting a conference with bill bratton. a short time ago the deputy commissioner of counterterrorism spoke about the threat and urged the
>> we expect from the public that it's probably nothing, so yes, we're getting more calls, we're looking at more suspicious packages, we're checking out more suspicious people when we get a call about a specific individual. but that is what we're looking for, and that's what we do. >> deputy commissioner john miller on cnn. this, of course, coming off several new developments in paris. >> there's dramatic new video of one terror attack, and police raid a building in search of the man who planned these attacks. dick brennan is here with more. >> reporter: the attacks friday killed 129 people, many caught in a hail of bullets only feet from the gunman. and now we can see one of those attacks as it unfolded. it's our first look at the paris attacks as they happened, second by horrifying second. the silent security pictures shows one of the terrorist in that red circle opening fire outside a restaurant friday night.
patrons scramble to take cover. bullets and glass fly in every direction. people run for their lives. at one point the gunman appears to be aiming at point- blank range, but the gun misfires, and two women escape death. there was more gunfire overnight but this time it was the police battling the terrorists and stopping what appears to be the makings of another terror attack. s.w.a.t. teams swarmed an apartment in the paris suburb of saint- denis and came under a barrage of fire. 5,000 rounds, a shoot-out that lasted more than an hour. inside, a woman in another apartment hid her baby. >> they said to stay low on the floor, don't move and turn off all the lights. >> reporter: authorities rounded up eight suspects. two were killed including a woman what blew herself up. but who was the other dead
it could be the paris master mind, abdelhamid abaaoud? authorities couldn't say because the body was not intact. >> we will try to keep as usual, but things have changed forever i think in paris. >> reporter: as for how long it will take to find out if the mastermind died in those attacks, one of the floors of the building collapsed when the suicide vest detonated, and that is complicating recovery efforts. >> thank you so much. we need to get live to times square now where you see bill de blasio, the mayor of new york city speaking. >> in times square where we are now and harold square, in an obvious attempt to intimidate the people of new york city, i'm here this evening with commissioner bratton and other leaders of our police department and the men and women of our department who patrol times square to make very clear that the people of new york city
we understand it is the goal of terrorists to intimidate society. wishes. the people of new york city, as you can see right now, are going about their business even at this late hour. i want to encourage all new yorkers to continue to go about their business normally. it's important to note that there is no credible and york city. nypd has been working very, very closely with the fbi and our other federal partners. i again repeat there is no specific and credible threat against new york city. so it's crucial that people go about their normal business, providing extraordinary protection to the people of this city. 35,000 members strong. and just in this last week, we've initiated the first
waves of our new critical response command which will grow to 500 plus officers, specifically dedicated to anti- terrorism activities. these officers who have been assigned in the last months will be specifically trained, equipped, and armed to handle any terrorist threat, and be part of our overall efforts of the nypd to prevent terrorism in coordination with our federal partners. so the people of new york city can rest assured that extraordinary efforts are being made every single day to keep them safe. this is the finest police force in this nation for 14 years since 9/11. this police force has consistently protected this city against terrorist threats. and it will continue to do so. i want to say one other thing before i turn it over to commissioner bratton.
we can depend on the nypd, and at the same time, every resident of this city can help the nypd. we have a phrase, if you see something, say something. that phrase is very meaningful. if you see something, you think it is suspicious, a package left unattended, or if you hear information that you believe the nypd should have, please immediately call 911 or alert a police officer. that kind of information, those leads could be very, very helpful to nypd and help them do the good work they do. with that i'm proud to introduce our commissioner, bill bratton. >> thank you, mr. mayor. echoing the mayor's comments that there is, as we have repeated frequently, no in the america that is better prepared to defend and protect against a terrorist attack. we work tirelessly to ensure
our capabilities and our systems. the events of today that have raised concern, being quite frank, there is nothing new about that video. new york obviously remains one of the top terrorist targets in the world. that video, our review of it, it looks like it has been hastily produced. it is a mishmash of previously released video. we believe it's a compilation of videos going back to one in august that was directed against germany, one in october directed against israel, and 19 seconds of about a five and a half minute video released today had scenes of new york. in new york, we understand that we are a terrorist target. it reflect the importance of this city. understanding that this city places great importance on the safety of new yorkers and the almost 60 million visitors who will come to this city.
as we move into this time of celebration and great activity, the thanksgiving day parade, the lighting of the christmas tree in rockefeller center, the holiday celebrations that will bring millions into this city, people can feel comfortable coming into this city, enjoying themselves, be afraid. the nypd will protect you. the nypd working in close, close cooperation with the fbi and our other government colleagues and with the great, great assistance of the residents of this great city that we will keep us say. we cannot be intimidated. that's what terrorists seek to do. they seek to create fear. they seek to intimidate. we will not be intimidated, and we will not live in fear. thank you.
>> thank you very much. >> mayor de blasio and police commissioner bratton seeking to reassure new yorkers that we can be comfortable and enjoy ourselves, but be aware that they took special care to protect calm. they point out the video is mostly recycled video, just a few seconds of it showing previously seen images of new york. the commissioner and mayor saying no doing that. >> they couldn't speak of specific threats because none have been made and they wanted to stress that to the public and also the 60 million visitors that visit this great city. gin the mean time there is also concern tonight that isis is communicating in the so- called dark web. >> top u.s. officials say the terror group is using undetectable apps to try to
spread their message, and it is setting off a debate over encryption. jessica schneider live on the upper west side with more. >> reporter: maurice, a lot of people don't realize that messaging apps like i-message, and even "what's app" are completely encrypted. that means that you and the person you are communicating with are the only people who will ever see the content. but officials say it is providing terrorists a digital safe haven. isis spelling out the tech loopholes in this 34-page manual, instructing its followers to use apps like i- message because it is encrypted, or other apps like telegram and wicker because it offers a self-destruction of the messages feature. >> if they find somebody that
behave or might come and kill in the caliphate, they move them to a mobile messaging app that's end-to-end encrypted. and at that moment the needle we've been searching the entire nation to find, and have found, goes invisible. >> reporter: officials warn this encryption is dangerous, even with a warrant they can't get access. tech companies like apple and google began equipping phones with complete encryption several years ago. once they sell a phone, the only person who can access it is the user. >> some of it is definitely in response to the revelations from edward snowden. >> reporter: now the government wants these companies to reconsider. but apple's ceo tim cook says on the web site, we have never allowed access to our servers, and we never l. tech companies here say if they release the info, terrorists will simply turn to other companies encryption. answer. >> i'm conflicted about. that i feel like the terrorists are apples going to around us. >> i personally have
absolutely no problem with the government going in and looking at my phone. like i have nothing to hide. >> reporter: you think they should be able to. >> yeah, i definitely do. >> reporter: and tech experts stress that encryption isn't all bad. after all, it protects your personal information and your banking and your purchases. so while the government may not be able to see your info, neither will hackers. live on the upper west side, jessica schneider, cbs2 news. >> isis also today released an image claiming that it showed how they took down a passenger plane. they're claiming this photos shows the explosive device that it used to blow up the jetliner last month. russia's president has vowed revenge. other headlines of the day still to come, like a maternity store that was targeted. >> were you one of the people tied up? >> yes. >> you're doing okay?
