In a few minutes on BBC News we'll be taking a look at tomorrow's

:00:14.:00:16.

And in Paris, the Daily Telegraph columnist.

:00:17.:00:27.

Many of the front pages are already in.

:00:28.:00:29.

Le Figaro concentrates on the challenge President Hollande

:00:30.:00:31.

faces in responding to Friday's terror attacks in Paris.

:00:32.:00:34.

The FT says France and the US have pledged to step up air strikes

:00:35.:00:37.

The Express claims 450 Jihadis are on the streets of Britain

:00:38.:00:45.

and planning attacks after returning from fighting in Syria.

:00:46.:00:49.

The Telegraph focuses on the manhunt and says

:00:50.:00:54.

the suspect was in a car stopped at the border, hours after the

:00:55.:00:57.

The manhunt leads the Times too - with the headline

:00:58.:01:03.

Pictures of some of those killed dominate the front of the Guardian.

:01:04.:01:08.

And the Metro has included a picture of the Eiffel Tower in its logo

:01:09.:01:13.

We will hear from our guests any moment but services of members have

:01:14.:01:26.

been held for those caught up in Friday's terrible violence. People

:01:27.:01:29.

in neighbouring countries have paid their respects as well. Jenny Hill

:01:30.:01:34.

is in Berlin, where crowds have gathered to remember the victims.

:01:35.:01:38.

German authorities have discovered a man arrested with

:01:39.:01:42.

firearms in his car in Bavaria could be connected to the attacks.

:01:43.:01:45.

All day, people have been coming here to lay

:01:46.:01:47.

flowers and light candles, and simply stand in silence.

:01:48.:01:50.

This is the Brandenburg Gate, and in Germany,

:01:51.:01:52.

That is what many of the people here wish to express

:01:53.:02:03.

tonight, a sense of solidarity with the people of France.

:02:04.:02:05.

As the tributes mount up here, though, the German authorities are

:02:06.:02:08.

continuing to hold a 51-year-old Montenegran man.

:02:09.:02:10.

They arrested him ten days ago near the Austrian border.

:02:11.:02:12.

When they stopped his car, police found inside a number

:02:13.:02:15.

of weapons, including eight machine guns, as well as explosives.

:02:16.:02:19.

They looked at his satellite navigation system, and it's

:02:20.:02:22.

The German government say they share that information with the French

:02:23.:02:28.

The authorities also say they are still investigating the possibility

:02:29.:02:34.

What is really concerning ministers here in Germany

:02:35.:02:40.

at the moment is the possibility of a backlash against the hundreds

:02:41.:02:44.

of thousands of refugees who are currently living in Germany.

:02:45.:02:48.

The political right here in particular is calling

:02:49.:02:51.

for tighter border controls, saying that they simply aren't aware

:02:52.:02:53.

of who's coming into the country, who could be driving across it.

:02:54.:02:56.

That is something that is really concerning the German government.

:02:57.:03:01.

In an interview this morning, the head

:03:02.:03:04.

of the country's internal security services tried to tamp down those

:03:05.:03:07.

concerns, saying that as far as he is concerned, it is very unlikely

:03:08.:03:10.

terrorists will try to enter the country in the guise of refugees.

:03:11.:03:16.

But he also went on to say this, that he is aware of more than 100

:03:17.:03:22.

instances of extremists trying to radicalise people currently living

:03:23.:03:26.

There is a lot for the German government to think about,

:03:27.:03:32.

but at the moment, here in Germany, the mood is really all

:03:33.:03:37.

about standing shoulder to shoulder with the people of Paris.

:03:38.:03:40.

Earlier today, Germany's president gave a speech

:03:41.:03:44.

in which he said that the attacks on Paris were also attacks

:03:45.:03:46.

He went on to say that the strength and the

:03:47.:03:54.

community of democracy in the world is much stronger than that of hate.

:03:55.:04:12.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:04:13.:04:15.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are Joe Watts, Political Correspondent

:04:16.:04:19.

London Evening Standard and Benedicte Paviot, France 24.

:04:20.:04:24.

And joining us from our Paris bureau is Daily Telegraph Columnist

:04:25.:04:27.

Thank you for joining us. Tomorrow's front pages. This is how

:04:28.:04:43.

they look. We will begin with the Figaro. Let me tell you its main

:04:44.:04:50.

story is looking at how Francois Hollande is look -- likely to

:04:51.:04:55.

respond to the challenge that is now being faced as a result of these

:04:56.:05:02.

attacks in Paris on Friday. Looking at the Financial Times, France and

:05:03.:05:06.

the US have said they will step up air strikes against so-called

:05:07.:05:10.

Islamic State. If we can look at the Telegraph, or the express, I don't

:05:11.:05:16.

agree casualties front pages, can we? There is the Telegraph. The

:05:17.:05:25.

Telegraph says that a suspect in the attacks was stopped in a car at the

:05:26.:05:30.

border of France going over to Belgium hours after the attacks but

:05:31.:05:33.

police let him go because there was nothing suspicious. OK, we will give

:05:34.:05:39.

up on the front pages. We will go through the stadium -- steadily in a

:05:40.:05:45.

moment. All of the front pages in one form or another are looking at

:05:46.:05:48.

the aftermath of the Paris attacks. Let's start with French and the

:05:49.:05:53.

burglar Figaro and have a picture of Francois Hollande. How do you think

:05:54.:05:58.

the president is handling this crisis? Well, I think he acted very

:05:59.:06:06.

swiftly. He started with an address to the nation. He announced he would

:06:07.:06:12.

be declaring a state of emergency that is in progress that can last 12

:06:13.:06:20.

days and I gather, I know there needs to be a law posted by

:06:21.:06:24.

Parliament for that to continue and different and minister today has

:06:25.:06:30.

made it clear that he wants it prolongs and there is talk of three

:06:31.:06:34.

months. I do think it has been swift. They went into crisis

:06:35.:06:38.

meetings immediately with the interior minister and defence

:06:39.:06:41.

Minister and Justice Minister and also, they went to the Bataclan,

:06:42.:06:48.

where the worst atrocities were committed on Friday night by these

:06:49.:06:49.

terrorists. Elizabeth, you have written a column

:06:50.:07:01.

of how proud you are of Paris. What is the view that of the people you

:07:02.:07:06.

have been speaking to about the response France should mount

:07:07.:07:10.

following these attacks. The people in the street are the ones whose

:07:11.:07:13.

reaction are the most surprising and so different from the perfectly

:07:14.:07:20.

expect a ball reaction of the politicians. The politicians are

:07:21.:07:27.

saying the things you expect them to say. President Hollande by and large

:07:28.:07:35.

has the nation behind him, but people in the streets were not

:07:36.:07:39.

arise. They were told not to go outside because it might be

:07:40.:07:42.

dangerous, but they still went to the places where the attacks had

:07:43.:07:47.

been. They sat in cafes next to the restaurants that have been targeted

:07:48.:07:58.

on Friday. Not just civic sense, but it is the brotherhood of the city.

:07:59.:08:04.

People just turned up to help as we often see in moments of crisis like

:08:05.:08:11.

this. Let us look at the FT. France and Europe to amp up air strikes

:08:12.:08:18.

after the attacks. President Obama already -- President Hollande

:08:19.:08:22.

already promised merciless retaliation. The air strikes we saw

:08:23.:08:31.

was from saying, we will stand up to the Islamic State. America is now

:08:32.:08:36.

talking about intensifying attacks. The debate in the UK will spark up

:08:37.:08:40.

again as to whether they should join air strikes in Syria, but the

:08:41.:08:50.

question is, what does this mean to be wider strategy in the Middle

:08:51.:08:55.

East? It was recently said that there was no strategic underpinning

:08:56.:09:02.

for action in Syria and the question President Hollande and President

:09:03.:09:09.

Obama will face is what is their strategy. There is a lot of

:09:10.:09:15.

solidarity in the wake of the attacks, but it will get more

:09:16.:09:20.

difficult. There is another story on the FT which says from great guide

:09:21.:09:25.

to deadly French terrorist in the space of three years. This is one of

:09:26.:09:29.

those who have been identified from a finger which was found close to

:09:30.:09:37.

the scene of one of the blast. This is Omar Ismail Mostefai. What has

:09:38.:09:47.

happened to these men? Home-grown terrorists in some cases. That would

:09:48.:09:51.

be of great interest to the intelligence services, I would

:09:52.:09:56.

assume? I think the intelligence services know a bit about how they

:09:57.:10:01.

are radicalised. Some of them were radicalised in Belgium, it is not

:10:02.:10:07.

just France. What is interesting that the phrase we have heard

:10:08.:10:15.

already at the time of Charlie Hebdo, at the time of the attack on

:10:16.:10:21.

the Jewish school in Toulouse, they are known. The networks are

:10:22.:10:26.

followed. Sometimes we listen to their cellphones, but what

:10:27.:10:30.

disconnect happens when we cannot realise that they are planning this

:10:31.:10:33.

kind of attack? You were talking about whether people have ideas

:10:34.:10:39.

about policy. One of the worries is what we for Security policy so that

:10:40.:10:43.

all this intelligence that the French have got great expertise in,

:10:44.:10:49.

we have had Islamic terrorism in France for over 35 years, the

:10:50.:10:53.

question is we have this information, how do we use it to

:10:54.:10:59.

prevent the terrorist acts? That is something the man and woman in the

:11:00.:11:05.

street are asking. Suspect rather let free by police it says on the

:11:06.:11:16.

front of the Telegraph. He appears to have got across the border. That

:11:17.:11:26.

is a problem. Having the freedom of movement, living in a democracy,

:11:27.:11:31.

being innocents until proved guilty. Although they had just had

:11:32.:11:38.

the attacks, this is a terrible mistake. He was stopped. There was

:11:39.:11:43.

nothing apparently suspicious about him, or in the car. His name was

:11:44.:11:48.

taken, it was near the Belgian border, so he got away. It wasn't

:11:49.:11:52.

until they made a link with the car that was found in Paris near the

:11:53.:11:55.

attacks that they've then made the link. Let us remember, this only

:11:56.:12:01.

happened on Friday night, but what I have been looking into is looking

:12:02.:12:07.

again at L gem. Dodge has a massive problem. It has been brewing for

:12:08.:12:12.

over ten or 15 years. I remember a cab driver, cab drivers in all

:12:13.:12:18.

countries can tell you all kinds of things and sometimes they have a

:12:19.:12:21.

good insight into things. Belgium is a small country. Well, there is this

:12:22.:12:29.

part of Brussels that is called Molenbeek and it is full of these

:12:30.:12:37.

cells. This driver was trying to tip me off. These men have not only been

:12:38.:12:43.

linked with the Charlie Hebdo atrocities, they have been linked

:12:44.:12:49.

way back, remember a man who was a commander in Afghanistan and his

:12:50.:12:56.

death, his name escapes me, but his death was the precursor to ten two.

:12:57.:13:18.

-- to 9/11. The security services need to wake up. It is a training

:13:19.:13:25.

camp and Europe and I'm sure Washington London and Paris are

:13:26.:13:29.

looking at Belgium in a very serious way. And the other story from the

:13:30.:13:37.

Telegraph regarding border controls. This will reignite the

:13:38.:13:43.

issue of border control across all member states. That is right. The

:13:44.:13:50.

finance minister said that Paris changes everything and there has to

:13:51.:13:55.

be an end to free movement and immigration. We have also had Poland

:13:56.:14:01.

pulling out of the agreement to take refugees from Syria today. France

:14:02.:14:07.

calling for all sorts of new controls, including any

:14:08.:14:12.

fingerprinting -- a new fingerprinting system. The most

:14:13.:14:18.

controversial one is called for this passenger name recognition system.

:14:19.:14:21.

So this is a database that allows governments across Europe to share

:14:22.:14:26.

that information on passengers as they are moving around Europe. That

:14:27.:14:29.

really goes against the liberal values of a lots of governments,

:14:30.:14:34.

especially in France. Finally, the Daily Express has this figure of 450

:14:35.:14:40.

jihadis on the loose in the UK. Fears home-grown terrorist are

:14:41.:14:47.

planning copycat attacks. We fear is there will be more potential

:14:48.:14:52.

terrorist who have the skills if they have come back from Syria and

:14:53.:14:56.

been radicalised, Paris will just be the beginning. It is possible and it

:14:57.:15:05.

does not take massive skills to empty a magazine into a crowd of

:15:06.:15:11.

people on the floor. That is the nature of terrorism, it is

:15:12.:15:17.

asymmetric. We know Al-Qaeda means the base. It is a decentralised

:15:18.:15:21.

organisation in which people can take initiatives. Practically, you

:15:22.:15:27.

can think there are young men who have been brainwashed and suddenly

:15:28.:15:34.

they may decide to do this. President Hollande says we are at

:15:35.:15:39.

war, but Pope Francis says these are the images of world War three and we

:15:40.:15:42.

are at war and we have to get used to it. For the moment, thank you

:15:43.:15:48.

very much. We will all be back again at 11:30pm for a longer look at The

:15:49.:15:53.

Papers. Thank you for that brief look at the front page news. If you

:15:54.:15:59.

would like to make a comment, you can do so on Twitter. We will be

:16:00.:16:05.

back
