Belgian prosecutors believe they have found the apartment where one of the Paris terrorists hid after the 13 November attacks. Police found traces of explosives and a fingerprint of the fugitive terrorist Salah Abdeslam at the apartment in the Schaerbeek district of the Belgium city.
An Islamic State (Isis) cell armed with assault rifles and explosives vests killed 130 people in the attacks on a football stadium, bars and a concert venue in the French capital.
Belgian federal prosecutors said that traces of the explosive TATP and three handmade belts possibly used to transport explosives were found at the apartment on 10 December in Rue Berge. Authorities said the apartment may have been rented under a false name by one of the 10 suspected accomplices of the attackers arrested in Belgium after the attacks.
French citizen Abdeslam is believed to have fled to Belgium after taking part in the Paris attacks, calling accomplices who drove him over the border. He was last seen on 14 November in a street near the apartment where accomplices told police they dropped him off.
He is believed to have rented a VW car in Belgium, which was found near the Bataclan Theatre, where Isis terrorists massacred concert goers.
Abdeslam's brother Brahim blew himself up in the attacks.
