12:01 pm
in the apartment blew up a suicide vest. police ordered residents to stay inside... anyone who approached was told that no uncertain terms to back away. neighbors, many of them muslim immigrants, were evacuated by police and searched. we stopped this resident who was rushing down the street. he said in arabic that he had witnessed the whole thing. i saws the raid. twenty cars passed by here. then five minutes later, the shooting started he said. you heard the gunfire i ask. i saw it with my eyes he said. meanwhile, the police focused on one apartment on the third floor of this building. that neighbors say is the apartment where the raid's targets were holed up. the main target officials say was abdelhamid abaaoud, the man they describe as the mastermind behind the paris attacks. a belgium national, he had gone to syria to join isis. as day was breaking, the raids seem to be winding down. but
12:02 pm
explosions echoed through the streets. it's common in situations like this for police to use grenade or small charges in order to set off booby traps that the suspects may have set up. police here remain on edge, occasionally moving aggressively to search the neighborhood. they are taking no chances... "police have now reopened this area, they say the raid is over. but france's president francois hollande says this country is now at war with isis and called for more cooperation, more countries to cooperate internationally to come up with a cohesive strategy to fight the group. richard engel, nbc news, north of paris." two planes bound for paris had to be diverted last night. two planes bound for paris had to be diverted last night. the first... a flight from los angeles... changed routes to salt lake city. police evacuated all of the passengers and searched the
12:03 pm
plane. it wasn't long before they gave the "all clear." shortly after.. a flight from washington, d - c.. diverted to nova scotia. officers there also determined there was no danger. even so... analysts say the pilots made the right decisions... one of the nation's top security experts c-i-a director john brennan says isil is the most powerful and ruthless terror groups ever. he told the 13-hundred government and private security experts at a meeting that the u-s is doing all it can to stop isil's violence. "isil, the islamic state of iraq and levant, the so-called caliphate is just the latest manifestation of what is a blind adherence to a twists and contorted ideology that can lead to such blood shed around the world." today brennan made that comment at a speech at the overseas security advisory council's 30th annual
12:04 pm
briefing. he went on to say the u-s should maintain it's longstanding policy of welcoming refugees. by evaluating how to strengthen the existing security safeguards to keep terrorists from exploiting the resettlement program. he also talked about edward snowden and the balance the u-s must strike between digital privacy and national security. 26 u-s governors say they're closing the door to syrian refugees... iowa being one of them. the effort runs counter-current to president obama's efforts to relocate 10-thousand syrian refugees... the governors say they aren't willing to put their own people at risk.... and the f-b-i says the u-s is unable to vet refugees to make sure they don't have ties to isis. but one central iowan disagrees... would you suspect a child to be a terrorist, would you suspect a father of a 4-5 kids and having his wife, you can tell, theyre like poor
12:05 pm
ghassan abood and his family resettled in the state after fleeing iraq in 2009. abood says syrian refugees should be given that same opportunity... and shouldn't have to pay the price for actions committed by terrorists. that's an opinion shared by the the largest refugee resettlement agency in the state. 'i think its just important to remember that refugees are people that are fleeing persecution and terror in other parts of the world and theyre just looking for a safe place to move with their families and start their life again.' the organizations say they dont believe that the governors have the authority to unilaterally decide not to resettle syrians because that would contradict federal immigration programs. a woman and a young child died after their car went off of interstate 80 yesterday. it happened yesterday afternoon just before one p-m near the newton exit... iowa state patrol says 14-year-old
12:06 pm
bryneisha watkins apparently over- corrected... while passing a semi- truck and accidentally steered the vehicle into the ditch. 39-year-old sabrina watkins and 11- year-old nataija watkins were killed in the crash. the 14 year old and another passenger were taken to a des moines hospital but survived and are in good condition. the cause is still under investigation. police are looking for a male who tried to rob someone while walking their dog in fort dodge. the victim was robbed near brownie's cafe on central avenue around 3-30 this morning. police say the suspect showed the victim a handgun and demanded money while the victim was walking. no one was hurt in the incident, but police are asking for your help in finding him. he is described as a white male in his 20's wearing a black hooded coat. the suspect was last seen on foot in the 14-hundred block of 1st avenue. our iowa forum continues today on the channel 13 news at four.
12:07 pm
but, there is a change in plans, since bobby jindal dropped out of the race yesterday. instead of the healthcare forum that was supposed to take place at d- macc in ankeny, 20-12 iowa caucus winner rick santorum will now join dave price via satellite from cedar rapids. before the forum, santorum will speak at the cedar rapids convention center at 2-30. the iowa forum continues tomorrow with donald trump taking part at the d-macc campus in newton. it will focus on job creation. tickets are already spoken for... however there will be an overflow room available for anyone else who wants to attend. you do not need a ticket for the overflow room. the metro had some rain showers this morning.. and it is expected to get wet and windy once again this afternoon. let's head down to the science center where jennifer mcdermed can let us know how long we will need our umbrella's and rain boots. ad lib wx quick

'i could see the smoke. it was pretty...it wasnt thick thick in the room but it was thick enough so i grabbed her and the other dog and opened up the window and came out on the roof there and started hollering.'a neighbor came out, grabbed a ladder and rescued matthews and his dogs off the roof. matthew isnt really surprised bella did what she did. he says shes a one smart pup. 'if you say ride she goes nuts, waiting by the door for a ride. if you say run outside. she knows all the basic sound commands. shes really hyper, because shes a border collie and a puppy. she loves...shes a lap dog. ill say hug and shell put her head on your shoulder.'but what bella did goes beyond smart...and you can bet theres a nice steak dinner in her future.

12:35 pm
geiger. iowa governor terry branstad is now a part of a lawsuit against the environmental protection agency's controversial waters of the u.s. rule. in a release yesterday.. branstad announced he was joining the u.s. district court of north dakota in support of 13 other states.. nationally.. governors or attorney's general from more than 31 states have taken action against wotus. branstad says the new water rule would impose significant barriers and impair iowa's ability to
12:36 pm
initiatives like the iowa nutrient reduction strategy. iowa ag secretary bill northey says joining the lawsuit is the right thing to do because wotus creates uncertainty for farmers.. on the national level, the american farm bureau federation is working with more than ten partners in litigation against wotus.. its focus is a two pronged approach.. the first is already in action in the courts.. the second is getting legislators to overturn the rule. even though president obama says he would veto stand alone legislation.. iowa senator joni ernst headed the a joint resolution of disapproval that would end the rule.. that passed in a bipartisan vote in the beginning of november.. "that is the quickest way to resolve the issues with epa if we can get a piece of legislation passed that the president will sign. so that means we will probably have to put a rider on a must pass piece of legislation like the omnibus. the court side, we have been pretty successful so far, the sixth circuit court of appeals has said that, 'yeah the plaintiffs may prevail on their points, they've got some good arguments so we're going to put a temporary injunction in place to keep the epa from
12:37 pm
stallman says the rule threatens most farmers because of a citizen suit provision in wotus.. he says e-p-a cannot come out to every farm.. and will rely on environmental groups or neighbors to let them know about property activities. a little relief today from recent low prices.. there's a little bounce back in livestock.. as for grains.. they're still in a choppy market.. "very much so on a sideways trend of course the break down came last week after the reports, but we're really trying to kind of stabilize since that time. you know, granted, very little news." "really to help things along, but that said, you know when you do get moving into a pattern like this, markets tend to get technically oversold so i tend to want to believe here that the path of least resistance moving forward is going to be to the upside. not that the move will be significant. we're due for a short covering kind of a rebound here. " "you know, this is really not unusual for the way the cattle market reacts when they get towards a bottom. they get just very volatile.
12:38 pm
we've been in a down pattern certainly for the last month, if anything the market's probably leaning quite heavily toward the short side. with holidays coming up, they also could simulate a little demand.." "of course spiked lower lows monday in the hog market but snapped right back from there. i find that a little encouraging as well. you know, we haven't rallied away from the breakdown here over the last month. but that said, we're trying to stabilize. we've had two to three weeks of somewhat sideways trade now so we'd like to believe in looking over the technical indicators we'd like to believe the worst's behind us at this point." and that it for our show today.. thanks for joining us.. i'll see you again tomorrow. we put stories up every day.. check out who-tv dot com..
