BRUSSELS (AP) — A Belgian prosecutor says the fingerprints of Paris attacks fugitive Salah Abdeslam have been found in a Brussels apartment that police raided earlier this week.
A man was shot dead there Tuesday as he fired on police. Two other people escaped from the dwelling in the Forest neighborhood of Brussels. Belgian federal prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt, who confirmed that Abdeslam’s prints were found at the scene, said it was not yet known if Abdeslam was one of them.
Abdeslam fled Paris after the Nov. 13 attacks that killed 130 people. Most of the Paris attackers died that night, including Abdeslam’s brother Brahim, who blew himself up.
Van der Sypt said it hadn’t been established how old the fingerprints were, or how long Abdeslam spent in the apartment on the Rue Du Dries.
