We will hear from our guests any moment but services of members have
been held for those caught up in Friday's terrible violence. People
in neighbouring countries have paid their respects as well. Jenny Hill
is in Berlin, where crowds have gathered to remember the victims.
German authorities have discovered a man arrested with
firearms in his car in Bavaria could be connected to the attacks.
All day, people have been coming here to lay
flowers and light candles, and simply stand in silence.
This is the Brandenburg Gate, and in Germany,
That is what many of the people here wish to express
tonight, a sense of solidarity with the people of France.
As the tributes mount up here, though, the German authorities are
continuing to hold a 51-year-old Montenegran man.
They arrested him ten days ago near the Austrian border.
When they stopped his car, police found inside a number
of weapons, including eight machine guns, as well as explosives.
They looked at his satellite navigation system, and it's
The German government say they share that information with the French
The authorities also say they are still investigating the possibility
What is really concerning ministers here in Germany
at the moment is the possibility of a backlash against the hundreds
of thousands of refugees who are currently living in Germany.
The political right here in particular is calling
for tighter border controls, saying that they simply aren't aware
of who's coming into the country, who could be driving across it.
That is something that is really concerning the German government.
In an interview this morning, the head
of the country's internal security services tried to tamp down those
concerns, saying that as far as he is concerned, it is very unlikely
terrorists will try to enter the country in the guise of refugees.
But he also went on to say this, that he is aware of more than 100
instances of extremists trying to radicalise people currently living
There is a lot for the German government to think about,
but at the moment, here in Germany, the mood is really all
about standing shoulder to shoulder with the people of Paris.
Earlier today, Germany's president gave a speech
in which he said that the attacks on Paris were also attacks
He went on to say that the strength and the
community of democracy in the world is much stronger than that of hate.
Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow. With me are Joe Watts, Political Correspondent
London Evening Standard and Benedicte Paviot, France 24.
And joining us from our Paris bureau is Daily Telegraph Columnist
Thank you for joining us. Tomorrow's front pages. This is how
they look. We will begin with the Figaro. Let me tell you its main
story is looking at how Francois Hollande is look -- likely to
respond to the challenge that is now being faced as a result of these
attacks in Paris on Friday. Looking at the Financial Times, France and
the US have said they will step up air strikes against so-called
Islamic State. If we can look at the Telegraph, or the express, I don't
agree casualties front pages, can we? There is the Telegraph. The
Telegraph says that a suspect in the attacks was stopped in a car at the
border of France going over to Belgium hours after the attacks but
police let him go because there was nothing suspicious. OK, we will give
up on the front pages. We will go through the stadium -- steadily in a
moment. All of the front pages in one form or another are looking at
the aftermath of the Paris attacks. Let's start with French and the
burglar Figaro and have a picture of Francois Hollande. How do you think
the president is handling this crisis? Well, I think he acted very
swiftly. He started with an address to the nation. He announced he would
be declaring a state of emergency that is in progress that can last 12
days and I gather, I know there needs to be a law posted by
Parliament for that to continue and different and minister today has
made it clear that he wants it prolongs and there is talk of three
months. I do think it has been swift. They went into crisis
meetings immediately with the interior minister and defence
Minister and Justice Minister and also, they went to the Bataclan,
where the worst atrocities were committed on Friday night by these
terrorists. Elizabeth, you have written a column
of how proud you are of Paris. What is the view that of the people you
have been speaking to about the response France should mount
following these attacks. The people in the street are the ones whose
reaction are the most surprising and so different from the perfectly
expect a ball reaction of the politicians. The politicians are
saying the things you expect them to say. President Hollande by and large
has the nation behind him, but people in the streets were not
arise. They were told not to go outside because it might be
dangerous, but they still went to the places where the attacks had
been. They sat in cafes next to the restaurants that have been targeted
on Friday. Not just civic sense, but it is the brotherhood of the city.
People just turned up to help as we often see in moments of crisis like
this. Let us look at the FT. France and Europe to amp up air strikes
after the attacks. President Obama already -- President Hollande
already promised merciless retaliation. The air strikes we saw
was from saying, we will stand up to the Islamic State. America is now
talking about intensifying attacks. The debate in the UK will spark up
again as to whether they should join air strikes in Syria, but the
question is, what does this mean to be wider strategy in the Middle
East? It was recently said that there was no strategic underpinning
for action in Syria and the question President Hollande and President
Obama will face is what is their strategy. There is a lot of
solidarity in the wake of the attacks, but it will get more
difficult. There is another story on the FT which says from great guide
to deadly French terrorist in the space of three years. This is one of
those who have been identified from a finger which was found close to
the scene of one of the blast. This is Omar Ismail Mostefai. What has
happened to these men? Home-grown terrorists in some cases. That would
be of great interest to the intelligence services, I would
assume? I think the intelligence services know a bit about how they
are radicalised. Some of them were radicalised in Belgium, it is not
just France. What is interesting that the phrase we have heard
already at the time of Charlie Hebdo, at the time of the attack on
the Jewish school in Toulouse, they are known. The networks are
followed. Sometimes we listen to their cellphones, but what
disconnect happens when we cannot realise that they are planning this
kind of attack? You were talking about whether people have ideas
about policy. One of the worries is what we for Security policy so that
all this intelligence that the French have got great expertise in,
we have had Islamic terrorism in France for over 35 years, the
question is we have this information, how do we use it to
prevent the terrorist acts? That is something the man and woman in the
street are asking. Suspect rather let free by police it says on the
front of the Telegraph. He appears to have got across the border. That
is a problem. Having the freedom of movement, living in a democracy,
being innocents until proved guilty. Although they had just had
the attacks, this is a terrible mistake. He was stopped. There was
nothing apparently suspicious about him, or in the car. His name was
taken, it was near the Belgian border, so he got away. It wasn't
until they made a link with the car that was found in Paris near the
attacks that they've then made the link. Let us remember, this only
happened on Friday night, but what I have been looking into is looking
again at L gem. Dodge has a massive problem. It has been brewing for
over ten or 15 years. I remember a cab driver, cab drivers in all
countries can tell you all kinds of things and sometimes they have a
good insight into things. Belgium is a small country. Well, there is this
part of Brussels that is called Molenbeek and it is full of these
cells. This driver was trying to tip me off. These men have not only been
linked with the Charlie Hebdo atrocities, they have been linked
way back, remember a man who was a commander in Afghanistan and his
death, his name escapes me, but his death was the precursor to ten two.
-- to 9/11. The security services need to wake up. It is a training
camp and Europe and I'm sure Washington London and Paris are
looking at Belgium in a very serious way. And the other story from the
Telegraph regarding border controls. This will reignite the
issue of border control across all member states. That is right. The
finance minister said that Paris changes everything and there has to
be an end to free movement and immigration. We have also had Poland
pulling out of the agreement to take refugees from Syria today. France
calling for all sorts of new controls, including any
fingerprinting -- a new fingerprinting system. The most
controversial one is called for this passenger name recognition system.
So this is a database that allows governments across Europe to share
that information on passengers as they are moving around Europe. That
really goes against the liberal values of a lots of governments,
especially in France. Finally, the Daily Express has this figure of 450
jihadis on the loose in the UK. Fears home-grown terrorist are
planning copycat attacks. We fear is there will be more potential
terrorist who have the skills if they have come back from Syria and
been radicalised, Paris will just be the beginning. It is possible and it
does not take massive skills to empty a magazine into a crowd of
people on the floor. That is the nature of terrorism, it is
asymmetric. We know Al-Qaeda means the base. It is a decentralised
organisation in which people can take initiatives. Practically, you
can think there are young men who have been brainwashed and suddenly
they may decide to do this. President Hollande says we are at
war, but Pope Francis says these are the images of world War three and we
are at war and we have to get used to it. For the moment, thank you
very much. We will all be back again at 11:30pm for a longer look at The
Papers. Thank you for that brief look at the front page news. If you
would like to make a comment, you can do so on Twitter. We will be
