Paris Attack Suspect Flees 'Toward Germany' After Escaping Brussels Raid
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon refuted media claims on Monday that fugitive Salah Abdeslam, the remaining living Paris attacker and currently a fugitive, is heading from Belgium to Germany.

"I cannot confirm this," the minister said live on national public channel RTBF, refusing to disclose further details to avoid harming the ongoing manhunt and investigation.

Media reported late Sunday that police had spotted Abdeslam in the Belgium city of Liege, as the man escaped on the E40 motorway to Germany. The news came amid Belgium's biggest police and army operation since the November 13 attacks in Paris. Sunday night's operation failed to capture Abdeslam in spite of 16 other arrests. Belgium remains in lockdown and a maximum alert remains in place for a third day.

The terrorist attacks in Paris killed 130 people, injuring over 360. The Islamic State (ISIL) jihadist group, operating in Syria and Iraq, claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Three dead Paris attackers so far identified were Belgian citizens. Another three dead attackers were French citizens living in Belgium. Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who was killed in a police raid in Paris Wednesday, was a Belgian, and was said to have planned the attack.
