Obama Pledges Support To Help Seek Justice For Paris Attacks


10:48 A.M. (AP) - President Barack Obama says the U.S. and Britain will do everything in their power to help France seek justice for last week's terror attacks.

Obama spoke at a news conference Friday with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Obama says they spent much of their time in two days of meetings talking about the fight against terrorism after the attacks in Paris that killed 17 people. He called the attacks "vicious" and said both nations stand with the French and all allies fighting the "scourge" of terrorism.

Fears of further attacks by Islamic extremists are growing, with police in Belgium saying they killed two suspects in a raid Thursday to stop another major impending attack.

(AP) - British Prime Minister David Cameron is meeting with President Barack Obama amid fresh concerns about terrorism in the West.

Cameron is expected to push to get American technology companies like Google and Facebook to allow governments to snoop on encrypted communications. He has argued that intelligence agencies must be able to intercept terror suspects' communications on encrypted social media and messaging sites.

Obama and Cameron are meeting at the White House the week after 17 people died in terror attacks in France spurred by a satirical newspaper's caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

Fears of additional attacks by Islamic extremists grew Thursday, when police in Belgium killed two suspects during an anti-terror raid launched to pre-empt what officials called a major impending attack.
