The Local reported:
An object resembling a suicide vest was found on Monday in a bin in a suburb just south of Paris, according to reports in the French media.
The reports, which have not been officially confirmed, say that a discarded suicide vest was found in a bin in the suburb of Montrouge, just to the south of Paris.
After the discovery was made a security cordon was installed while forensics teams moved in.
BFM TV have quoted a source close to the investigation who said the bomb vest was similar to those used in the Paris attacks of November 13th.
If it is confirmed the object is indeed a suicide vest then it is highly likely it was linked to the attacks, which saw suicide bombers attack the Stade de France and the Bataclan, as well as a bar on Avenue Voltaire.
Reports also say investigators have have studied telephone data which places the wanted man Salah Abdeslam in Montrouge after the attacks.
Abdeslam was initially implicated in the terrace shootings, but there is a growing suspicion that Abdeslam was supposed to have launched an attack in the 18th arrondissement of the city, but that he may have had pulled out at the last minute.
