Belgian police hunting fugitive 'blood brother' - Paris suspect

OWoN: There is so much disinformation floating around in the Blogosphere. The Belgian mastermind is being pursued today and hopefully soon will be in custody. Hopefully he gets life without parole, the first 20 years in solitary chained to a wall as well deserved. 

The UK has stopped 7 such attacks so far this year.

Paris terrorist fugitive Salah Abdeslam - dubbed the world's most wanted man - appears to have escaped police for a second time in three days today as it emerged the hunt for gunmen has spread to Italy.

Belgian special forces stormed a Brussels apartment in a district known as the 'jihadi capital of Europe' believing the 26-year-old was hiding inside.

In a scene similar to the famous Iranian embassy siege in London in 1980, soldiers clambered across the roof and were seen firing tear gas through a Velux-style window to flush out the terror suspect.

A hooded man was handcuffed and put in a car by plain-clothes police but the Mayor of Molenbeek has insisted that there were no arrests and the wanted man is still on the run.

French police also alerted Italian authorities to search for a black Seat with the registration plate GUT 18053, which they feared had crossed the border with a 32-year-old suspect. However, Italian police do not believe the car ever crossed the frontier and have ceased their search.

It appears the terror suspect, believed to be a getaway driver and potential shooter, may be hiding in Molenbeek, where the eight-strong ISIS terror cell may have met before the Paris raids to gather automatic weapons and suicide vests.

Salah Abdeslam is believed to be at the heart of French massacres where 129 people died on Friday and incredibly he was stopped and then released by French police guarding the Belgian border hours after the attacks.

The Belgian authorities confirmed that the operation was launched to capture Abdeslam but a city spokesman said it failed.

Belgium's federal prosecutor's office added that five of the seven people who were detained over the weekend because of possible links to the Paris attacks have been released, including Abdeslam's brother Mohammad.

The remaining two suspects have been changed with being part of a terror group and links to a terror attack, the office said in a statement.

French police questioned Abdeslam in the early hours of Saturday morning on a motorway close to the Belgian border as he returned to Brussels with two other men, just hours after the attack.

Three days on Belgian police raided a flat near his home and cleared a large section of Brussels city centre after a suspicious car with French number plates was spotted around the Joseph II street. Bomb squad technicians are examining the car after a security cordon is established.

Abdeslam is one the three 'blood brothers' behind the Paris massacre and is still on the run today after police let him go as it emerged a Bataclan suicide bomber was charged with trying to join Al Qaeda in 2012 but was still free to slaughter 89 people.

It came as French police said the mastermind of the Paris attacks is Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud, one of ISIS' top executioners who even took 13-year-old brother to fight in Syria.

Frenchman Salah Abdeslam, 26, from a suburb of Brussels known as the 'jihadi' capital of Europe, has been the quarry of a vast international manhunt - but incredibly he was stopped and then released by officers guarding the Belgian border hours after the attacks.

One of his brothers, Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, was one of seven terrorists who died on Friday night after he blew himself up in a solo attack outside cafe Comptoir Voltaire. He had rented a black Seat found yesterday in Paris packed with AK-47s and ammunition.

The third sibling, Mohammed Abdeslam, was in custody in Belgium last night after being arrested in a Brussels and has now been released.

This morning French police identified a Bataclan bomber as homegrown terrorist Samy Amimour, 28, who was known to anti-terror officers in 2012 when he was prosecuted for trying to flee France to join Al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen. A year later he slipped out of France to join ISIS in Syria.

French police have said homegrown terrorist Omar Ismaël Mostefai , 29, from Courcouronnes, Paris, was one of the Bataclan suicide bombers where 89 died.

A senior Turkish official says Mostefai was flagged as a terror suspect and they notified French authorities in December 2014 and in June 2015 - but had no response from France until after the Paris attacks when it requested information on Mostefai.

The Bataclan killer entered Turkey in 2013 but authorities have no record of him leaving.

Belgian Bilal Hadfi, 20, who had spent time fighting with ISIS in Syria before returning to Europe, detonated his suicide vest at the Stade de France where three died.

Stade de France suicide bomber Ahmad Almohammad travelled to France as an asylum seeker through Greece after being saved from a sinking ship. Greek ferry tickets reveal he travelled to Europe with another man named as Mohammed Almuhamed.

This morning French police identified a Bataclan bomber as homegrown terrorist Samy Amimour, 28, who was known to anti-terror officers in 2012 when he was prosecuted for trying to flee France to join Al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen. A year later he slipped out of France to join ISIS in Syria.

The former bus driver's father Mohamed, 67, went to Syria in June 2014 to convince him to come back to France fearing his son would be killed in the war-torn country.

When they met he said his son had a 'distant sort of smile' and had an ISIS handler who would not leave them alone.

He said: 'He was with a man who never left us alone. Our reunion was very cold - (he) didn’t invite me back to his lodgings, he didn’t say how he had been wounded nor whether he had been fighting'.

In a final plea to get him home he gave him a letter from his mother with 100 euros (£70) inside but it failed.

He said: 'He went into a corner to read it, then gave me back the cash, saying he didn’t have any need of money'.
