New images have surfaced of Salah Abdeslam, the only survivor of the jihadist gang which killed 130 people in Paris on 13 November. The CCTV images show Abeslam in northern France the morning after the attacks.
Abdeslam, 26, looks tired but nonchalant. The man with him is Hamza Attou, now in custody after driving to Paris on the night of 13 to 14 November to rescue his friend.
Over the weekend the Belgian capital rolled out a plan to allow would-be visitors to phone people on the street, to convince tourists the city is safe. When The Independent called the phone in Molenbeek, the neighbourhood where the Paris attacks were said to have been plotted, it was answered by Julie, a 21-year-old student, who was thrilled to speak with someone from England. “People should come and see Brussels: it’s not at all like they say in the press,” she said. However, a call to the phone in Flagey reached Louis, five, who mainly wanted to talk about his toy bus.
