firm and the two people who rented the cars were french nationals living in brussels. there has been a little con plugs exactly abo-- confusion at these french brothers we have heard a lot about. the name with a photograph has been officially released by the police. there were reports earlier on "the washington post" newspaper citing french judicial sources mentioning the name of another brother bearing the same surname. >> has not in any way officially been put out at the moment. as i said, there was the name of another brother cited in that newspaper article and that would appear to tie in with consistent reports that we have heard throughout the day that the belgian police and indeed the french police, as well, were looki looking for these two brothers, french nationals who have been living in belgium for many years.
1:01 pm
>> jackie, we are now at the top of the newshour. let's just remind viewers just joining in now that we have crossed live to paris because crowds had been seen running out of plaza de republic screaming and running. we are now hearing actually from the emergency officials saying people had run away from plaza de republic. some say they heard shots but as far as the emergency officials speaking to the rioters news agency, nothing has actually -- no shooting was actually confirmed. jackie roland still live for us, i think, at plaza de republic. jackie, we are seeing pictures now. what's the scene? what can you see there now? >> reporter: i am actually there. if you wanted to, i could walk in front of the camera and talk to you but we are at plaza de republic. i will walk in front of the camera in the chance you can see me. the situation here now is that people have been returning.
1:02 pm
there are dozens of people, 100 or more, who have arrived back here. they returned fairly quickly as soon as people heard that, in fact, it was a false alarm. to give you an idea of how sketchy people are, they are on the phone, ma, i heard about shooting. are you sure? it just seems that rumors are running around like wild fire at the moment. people are so afraid and so on edge. this is the way in which paris, the capital city, has been infected by fear and the fear is contagion now. you only need one person to twitch, almost, and you have several hundred people running for their lives. the the adrenaline kicks in. you run faster than you are aware you can. clearly, there is a lot of panic and lots of edginess and lots of
1:03 pm
nervousness for people all over the city now as we have witnessed here on plaza de reb republic. i can tell you, for example, when i finished broadcasting from here last night and i returned to the neighborhood in paris i live. it's a neighborhood that is very lively. often it's difficult to get through the streets because people are spilling out. restaurants -- >> i think we have lost the line to jackie roland. she was reporting live from plaza de republic. she was there when about twenty minutes ago or so, panic spread out. some people said they had heard shots. so really, the square which has been filled with probably up to 1,000 people who were there holding an informal vigil to mark, of course, the events of friday when 129 people were killed, well, the plaza de republic was effectively emptied in a matter of minutes.
1:04 pm
we have heard from our correspondent, jackie roland, she says that people are now coming back to the square and, also, an official from the emergency services says that as far as they know, there was actually no official report, no confirmation of any shots being fired. so it does seem that, i guess, the atmosphere of fear that has unsurprisingly gripped paris cause for panic there. let's get a little bit more now on the investigation surrounding the suspects of those attacks on friday. paul brennan is live for us in brussels. paul, brussels because obviously a lot of the better are leading from the par i seeian -- from the french scalptop to the belgian one. >> indeed, barbara, the more we know about the background of thestangers and the way that they went about carrying out that attack, at bataclan and
1:05 pm
restaurants in the center of paris, the belgian connection has become overwhelming. in the last hour, what we have had from the national police of france is a warrant issued and a wanted poster effectively publicized from the -- if we just correct that light there. it's just gone across. it means that prime suspect, that they want to find, he is outstanding. he is not currently in custody. he is not thought to be one of those people who were killed as part of that, those attacks. his name is sala abdalam. he is 26 years old, born hear in brussels although he is thought to have french nationality and as i think we heard jackie a short while ago mentioning "the washington post" reporting that he and his brother, ibrahim were involved in the attack. ibrahim, it is believed, was one
1:06 pm
of those who died while carrying out the attack and sala, it appears, is still on the run. i am told that there is an ongoing police operation, a police search operation, here in brussels tonight, very abreastive efforts are being made to trace this man. as i say, he is described by the police as extremely dangerous and the wanted poster that's been circulated tells people not to try to approach him on their own but to call the emergency police number. there is a lot of priority being put on this. >> paul brennan monitoring that investigation which has led french authorities to brussels. paul, for the moment, thank you. >> now, let's go back to jackie roland. she is live for us in paris. she is still in the plaza de republic. we were speaking a few minutes ago. remind us of viewers -- for viewers joining us, what happened in the past half hour or so. >> reporter: yes. i mean our

1:09 pm
what happened tonight action gladly, there wasn't actually an assailant in the crowd. if there had been, there could have been dozens of casualties. the police were trying to keep people in the square and not have them going in to neighboring streets. they were tension and unhappy about this large gathering, a respon spontaneous gathering. people have come back now. you may be able to see in the square. there are mistaken maybe 100, a couple of hundred people back in the square now. in fact, the circle of candles has enlarged. they are moving beyond the stattew. people are standing around the candles. i have to say there were at least 10 times if not more this many people in the square earlier on the square emptied. within seconds, there was no one here at all. in a way, it's the objective of
1:10 pm
the assailants, if it was to spread terror, if the objectives was to make people change the way that they behave, then unfortunately, that is an objective that has been achieved to an extent, although people have come back out. people that we spoke to earlier, you may recall those who were watching, we spoke to young people who said they wouldn't change their way of living. clearly these attacks have had a deep effect on people. it is palpable. the latest from the the area filling up once again. thank you. friday's attacks across paris have obviously shifted the focus of the g 20 meeting going on turkey. it's been dominated by the crisis in syria. bernard smith has more now from the summit in italia. >> reporter: at the g20 summit, a minute's silence for the victims of terrorism.

1:15 pm
agenda because of the killings of british tourists, maybe, not on the beach. the suicide bombings in ankara, the downing of the russian passenger jet it was at the forefront of everybody's minds here we are hearing the suggest there might be further cooperation to combat the threat of isil. bernard, thank you. going back to go paris. police say they found an abandoned car. inside were several ak-47 rifles, the sort used in the attacks. neev barker. . >> reporter: french military on

1:34 pm
today and tonight. >> say they were too scared to take the metro. in a way people from these communities have got two fears, the fear of being a victim like the rest of us but a fear of being some other kind of violence. >> the terrorists have attacked and sents a letter -- sent us a letter oftary and attacked french in diversity we are potential victim and at the same
1:35 pm
time we could be victims of terrorist attack how childrened about some of the comments we have heard already from right-wing readers who say we need to look at our immigration policy? how concerned are you that it can fuel that kind of discourse in france and europe? >> after charlie hebdo we have seen a rise of islamophobia. it has rise today a climax. i think it's going to be even stronger for a muslim community we need to speak up, be here today, be here tomorrow. go to speak up and go to communities, schools to inform people about islam and what is being muslim today in france.
1:36 pm
>> a difficult time for sami samia harubi here working for the foundation for ethnic understanding, a difficult time to be trying to do that in france. thank you for joining us. back to you. >> thank you for joining us. >> the investigation into the paris attacks is widening across europe. as we have been reporting, police have now arrested 7 people in belgium. the attacks were claimed to have been largely planned in brussels. german police say a man arrested last week with explosives and high-powered weapons in his car was on his way to paris. authorities have yet to make a link. the discovery after syrian passport near the body of one attacker has raised suspension some of the assailants may have entered through greece among the waves of refugees in the past
1:37 pm
month. >> the program direct offer for terrorism studties joining us in the studio, thank you for joining us here. wir seeing the pan european element. how difficult will it be for french authorities to try to pull all of these links together? the violence may have happened in france. see the organization happened overseas. there are links stretching against several different countries. have you noticed a step change in the way that isil is operating bike looking at this thing these people hadn't just been handed the guns a few
1:38 pm
minutes before but they knew what they were doing? >> it doesn't seem like a bunch of complete amateurs which has been the hallmark of some attacks in the west where inexperienced people were trying to carry it out how much they had is open for debate. they had access to a lot of spots where the terrorists have struggled. they have been able to get explosives but not automatic weapons this has set back the dialogue because of the force of these attacks.
1:39 pm
if they can get policies introduced social norms introduced they can try and exploit that with that community and make them appear more like the goodgize, more like people who are actually fighting and we have to be careful not in a way that works to the ad vantage of the terrorists. one of the things that has been discovered is the syrian passports near the body of one of the attackers. there is a lot we don't know. syrian passports can be bought. there is the possibility that this is someone that came in one of the migrant waves from grease
1:40 pm
a opposed to someone who has come in through an immigrant way? >> it may turn out that we do indeed have someone who god involved that way. it seems equally clear there were home grown people. >> i guess my question is: what is the difference in the investigation? >> it puts pressure on the international development. you will need to look at syria, the transit countries and try and identify what happened in that way. i think one of the consequences of it as well is that it puts pressure on different countries in terms of what do you do about refugee movement in general. and we need to remember here as well that isis do not want people leaving syria. they want people to remain in syria. they don't want them to flee to other countries and so it would suit isis for the west in particular to view refugees as potential terrorists and block them and force them to go back. >> actually is what they would prefer. >> professor andrew silk, head
1:41 pm
of criminology at the university of east london. thank you for sharing your views and thoughts with us. thank you. >> taxes are going up across the greek islands as athens implements new measures to raise cash to pay its creditors. the new rate will be the highest in the european union. it's likely to harm the island's most valuable source of income, tourism. john taropolus reports. >> cheese is the sitting export, created an $11 million dairy industry feedings hundreds of families. but farmers here are worried that they may now go out of business it is among the first to enforce the new tax law. >> i estimate cattle feeds will go up by 14 points. nobody here can make ends meet that way. my costs for feeds and medicines will go up by 500 or 600 euros a
1:42 pm
did a day. >> means my total costs will go up by a 5th. >> marifis questions he groans his cornmeal. the farmers cooperative says there is no room to raise prices or cut costs. >> it's difficult for us to pay farmers more. everyone is already pitching in. we can't cut salaries or fire people. i think people are just going to leave. >> tourism doesn't offer a safe harbor either with the 23% tax on ferry tickets and restaurants, people here fear that this industry will sink as visitors flee. the tax discount was meant tom compensate for distance islands
1:43 pm
