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


The Express claims 450 Jihadis are on the streets of Britain

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


The manhunt leads the Times too - with the headline


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


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


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
