POLICE in France found what they believe is an explosives belt outside Paris on Monday, as the hunt for Salah Abdeslam and other suspects continues.
The belt was found in the Montrouge suburb of Paris, the area where Abdeslam is reported to have been on November 13 according to phone data.
Abdeslam is the most hunted man in Europe having evaded both French and Belgian police since the Paris attacks. Salah’s brother, Ibrahim, 31, was one of the suicide bombers in the Le Comptoir Voltaire restaurant attack.
In Belgium, Brussels will remain at the highest security threat level for another week as Prime Minister Charles Michel said the prospect of an attack was ‘serious and imminent.’ Authorities in Belgium have arrested a fourth suspect over the Paris attacks.
In Washington, Francois Hollande, President of France, will meet US President Barack Obama today as world leaders continue to confer over the global security situation.
France began air strikes against ISIS militants from the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier on Monday, which has tripled French military capacity with its 26 fighters.
