Police are still hunting for surviving members and accomplices of the terrorist group that killed 129 people in Paris on Friday.

Across the Channel, French police named Brussels-born Salah Abdeslam, 26, as a vital suspect who is still on the run. He was allegedly stopped by officers in the wake of the attacks – but then let go.

Salah Abdeslam, the man named by police as a key suspect, is said to have rented a VW Polo car that was found near the Bataclan concert hall, where the biggest loss of life occurred.

Officials said he was in a vehicle with two other men near the Belgian border on Saturday when they were stopped by police, but they were released after checks.

It is unclear whether the French authorities had matched the VW Polo found at the Bataclan venue to him at the time he was stopped. The search continues.
