Device resembling suicide belt found in Montrouge, same French suburb phone data puts suspect Salah Abdeslam in on night of Paris attacks.


A device resembling a suicide belt has been found in a bin in the suburb of Montrouge, south of Paris.

Dustmen made the discovery. It is now being analysed to “confirm whether it is explosive,” according to a source close to the investigation.

Reports suggest there was no detonator attached.

Links to Salah Abdeslam?

A huge police manhunt for Salah Abdeslam is ongoing in France and Belgium. He is suspected of playing a role in attacks on the French capital ten days ago (November 13), which claimed the lives of 130.

Telephone data is said to put him in the Montrouge area on the night of the attacks.
