‘Two new suspects’ in Paris attacks

Police are seeking two new suspects accused of aiding the fugitive suspect from the Paris attacks Salah Abdeslam, the Belgian prosecutor’s office says.

The unnamed pair are “armed and dangerous” and are thought to have helped Abdeslam travel to Hungary in September.

Abdeslam was in Paris during the deadly assault claimed by Islamic State and remains at large.

The attacks on 13 November left 130 people dead and more than 350 wounded.

A fake identity card belonging to one of the two new wanted suspects was used to transfer money to the cousin of attacks ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the prosecutor said.

Abdeslam is believed to have travelled twice to the Hungarian capital Budapest twice in September using a rental car.

Earlier on Friday, the Paris cafe La Bonne Biere became the first of the venues targeted during the co-ordinated attacks to reopen its doors.
