French antiterror forces conduct nearly 130 overnight raids

French security forces raided 128 locations nationwide overnight as they continued their hunt for the terror network that carried out the attacks in Paris, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Tuesday. The country's security and intelligence organizations are investing the majority of their efforts in trying to capture Salah Abdelslam, a 26-year-old Belgium-born French citizen suspected of being one of the terrorists who carried out the attacks. About 115,000 policemen and military troops are patrolling areas around the country 24 hours a day, the minister said.
