OFFICIALS: Paris ISIS Fugitive Salah Abdeslam Skyped Friends From Belgium Hideout
ISIS killer Salah Abdeslam, wanted over the Paris terror attacks, is Skyping friends from his hideout in Brussels. He is trying to make it back to Syria and the ISIS caliphate.
21 Muslims have been arrested in Brussels over the weekend.
Belgian authorities made 21 arrests in and around the capital city Brussels by late Sunday in connection with the terror attacks on Paris.
However, Salah Abdeslam, the 26-year-old suspect from Brussels who has been on the run since his elder brother blew himself up at a Paris cafe is still on the run. A third brother, who was not involved, said Abdeslam may have thought better of going through with the killing. Belgian police fear he returned home to launch new attacks.
Shops, colleges and offices in Brussels, which is also home to the headquarters of the European Union and NATO, remained closed Monday after the prime minister warned of imminent Paris-style attacks.
“What we fear is an attack similar to the one in Paris, with several individuals who could possibly launch several attacks at the same time in multiple locations,” Prime Minister Charles Michel told a news conference early on Sunday evening.
