French probe terror suspect links; new attacks may be ahead, says PM Valls

What started as a hunt for two terror suspects grew into something worse – fears of a nest of terrorists that could strike again in the heart of Paris. The suspects in three attacks knew each other, had been linked to previous terrorist activities, and one had fought or trained with al-Qaida in Yemen, which claimed ownership Friday of this week’s newspaper massacre.

Investigators are now trying to determine to what extent the attacks were coordinated. The Kouachi brothers had been the subject of a vast manhunt following the armed attack on the Charlie Hebdo weekly that claimed 12 lives on Wednesday.
