President Obama is said to be following closely the investigation into Wednesday's attack on a satirical Paris publication, that left at least 12 people dead.

FOX News Radio's Jon Decker reports.

Just a day after the deadly terror attack in Paris, U.S. officials are said to be in close touch with their French counterparts. President Obama condemned the attack and spoke by telephone to President Francois Hollande, pledging America's solidarity with France and the French people.

(President Obama) "Our counter-terrorism cooperation with France is excellent. We will provide them with every bit of assistance that we can going forward."

The attack in the center of Paris has stirred calls on Capitol Hill for the U.S. to reassess its own security posture. But, so far Homeland Security has given no indication that the U.S. will raise its threat level.
