Chicago officials on Tuesday released "graphic" and "chilling" video showing an officer fatally shooting a black teenager 16 times. The footage has been described as something that "will tear at the hearts of all Chicagoans." The dash-cam video, which a judge ordered police to release by Nov. 25, is said to show 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, armed with a knife, apparently walking away from police when an officer opens fire. In the moments before the video was made public, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy called for peace and calm.
President Barack Obama said Tuesday the U.S. stands "united in total solidarity" with France following the Paris massacre to "deliver justice to these terrorists and to defend our nations."
Standing alongside French counterpart François Hollande, Obama said ISIS “cannot be tolerated and must be destroyed. And we must do it together.”
"We cannot succumb to fear," Obama said.
As his nation reels from attacks that left 130 dead just under two weeks ago, Hollande has been on a mission to get the international community to bolster the campaign against the Islamic State.
He said Tuesday he and Obama have agreed to broaden the scope of the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Obama stressed that Russia could play a role in efforts against ISIS if it's willing to focus on defeating the terror group.
Hollande met with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday and will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday. On Thursday, Hollande will meet with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Business deals aren’t the only thing Donald Trump says he’s good at executing. The Republican front-runner told South Carolina voters he can also predict foreign policy trends and events, NBC News reported.
"The other thing I predicted is terrorism," he told the crowd before elaborating on a longer story of a friend who told him the same. "A friend of mind called me and said 'Forget that, you're the first guy that really predicted terrorism.'"
Trump said his prediction of terrorism was documented in this 2000 book “The America We Deserve.”
He's also been touting his idea of bombing Iraqi oilfields and his stance on waterboarding.
He was joined in South Carolina by wife, Melania, and children, Ivanka, Tiffany and Baron.

The suspected ringleader of the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris took part in the assaults on a cafe and restaurant and visited the crime scenes later that night — even as police special forces stormed a concert venue where 89 people were slaughtered, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said Tuesday.
After the attacks unfolded, Abdelhamid Abaaoud traveled around central Paris, Molins said, citing cell phone tracking data, NBC News reported.
The data show that Abaaoud stopped near the locations where he and other gunmen and suicide bombers launched simultaneous assaults, killing 130 and injuring hundreds more, Molins said. That included the Bataclan, where gunmen and bombers attacked a sold-out concert by the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal.
Abaaoud also apparently spoke by cell phone with Bilal Hadfi before he blew himself up outside Stade de France along with two other suicide bombers, Molins said.
Abaaoud was killed during a police operation in the Saint-Denis neighborhood outside of Paris, on Wednesday, Nov. 18.
