Officials: Manhunt for suspected Paris attacker on the run

PARIS (AP modified) — French police put out a photo of a fugitive in the Paris attacks on Sunday, saying the suspect is on the run and too dangerous for anyone outside law enforcement to engage directly.

Police identified the man suspected of renting the car that delivered attackers to the Bataclan concert hall as Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old born in Brussels. “Do not intervene yourself,” warns the message issued Sunday evening .

Abdeslam is thought to be directly involved in Friday’s attacks, which killed 129 people and wounded hundreds in the worst violence in France in decades, French security officials said.

He is one of three brothers believed to be involved in the killings; one was arrested in Belgium and another died in the attack, the first official said.

Abdeslam rented the black Volkswagen Polo used by the group of hostage-takers that left at least 89 people dead inside the Bataclan, another official said. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
