This Is the Main Suspect Still at Large in the Paris Attacks

1 minute read

Authorities in France named a primary suspect still at large in Friday’s Paris terror attacks that claimed 129 lives, as police conducted a massive manhunt for him and other accomplices.

A notice posted on the French national police’s Twitter account describes Salah Abdeslam, 26, as a “dangerous individual” and advises anyone who comes across him not to “intervene.”

Abdeslam was stopped at the France-Belgium border on Saturday, a few hours after the attacks, but was subsequently released, according to the BBC. His brother Ibrahim was identified as one of the seven suicide bombers in Paris, and another brother has reportedly been arrested in Brussels.

Police said the three brothers, all Belgian-born, were traced using two vehicles linked to the attacks — a Volkswagen Polo rented by Salah believed to have been used by the attackers, and a Seat found abandoned in a suburb of Paris containing kalashnikov automatic weapons.
