While the main purpose of Thursday’s press conference by FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch was to reassure Americans that there was no evidence of any connecting plot to what happened in Paris to strike here in the U.S., the top domestic law enforcement officials did disclose that dozens of suspected radicals here are under “tight surveillance,” just in case thoughts of committing a copycat attack should appeal to them. A somewhat mixed message, but nonetheless, no credible threat at the moment.

Heavily armed French SWAT teams swooped in Wednesday and neutralized a cell that was planning to launch new attacks, firing 5,000 rounds during an hours-long battle that left at least two people dead, including a woman who exploded an explosives belt. The raid had targeted the suspected planner of the attacks, 27-year-old Abdelhamid Abaaoud, but his fate remained unclear. Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said the identities of the dead were still being investigated, but that neither Abaoud nor the fugitive attacker Salah Abdeslam was in custody. Developments are of course ongoing, and you can get the latest from Paris.
