PARMA, OH (WOIO) - The Cuyahoga County Board of Health reports eight influenza-related deaths occurred between Jan. 4-10, the highest weekly numbers since 2009.

PARIS (BFM/CNN) - Authorities have detained at least a dozen people in raids near Paris, overnight.

It's part of sweeping anti-terrorism operations across Europe.

Prosecutors suspect those people of providing logistical support for the terror attacks in Paris last week.

It's not clear at this point how they may have helped the gunmen.

Authorities says the people they detained were in the entourage of Amedy Coulibaly.

He was the shooter behind the deadly hostage standoff at a kosher supermarket.

Authorities in Belgium arrested one terrorism suspect and killed two others.

There are also reports of anti-terror raids and arrests in Germany on Friday morning.
