60 Minutes has changed its scheduled program lineup for tonight to include a segment on the deadly attacks in Paris. Friday night, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, flew to Paris to report on the attacks that left at least 127 people dead and more than 200 wounded.

Each of the major news networks are providing continuing coverage of the attacks. CBS News reports that officials have identified one of the Paris attackers as Ismael Mostefai, a 29-year old Frenchman who had been linked to Islamic radicalism. The news organization also reported that a French official says that Mostefai's father, a brother, and several other people -- including other family members -- have been detained for questioning.
