Paris Attacks: Raid in Belgium Captures Fugitive



After a four-month manhunt, international efforts supporting Belgian authorities captured Paris attack fugitive Salah Abdeslam in connection with the deadly terrorist action. The 26-year-old Abdeslam and a group of others were arrested in the neighborhood of Molenbeek, a suburb of Brussels, Belgium. Molenbeek is where the young man grew up. In Paris, he was allegedly part of a group of armed terrorists that killed over 100 people in November of 2015. This was a group of coordinated attacks in Paris that included a Stade de France Stadium, cafes and a rock concert. It was the deadliest attack in decades.

Authorities say that he is the last surviving attacker among the Paris attackers. He was shot in the leg during the raid. However, he was arrested alive. Security services believe he was trained by the ISIS, and he rented one of the cars that transported attackers around Paris. Authorities hope to find out if Abdeslam has any information on future attacks in the region or around the world. He dodged an earlier raid in Brussels. One person was killed in that action, it is believed that the deceased was an accomplice.
