    New surveillance video from Friday night's terrorist attacks in Paris show a ninth assailant, meaning that two suspects may still be unaccounted for.

    The video, obtained by the Associated Press, reportedly shows a team of three attackers present during the shooting at the sidewalk bar on La Fontaine au Roi street. While two gunmen can be seen opening fire, the video shows a third suspect waiting inside the getaway car.

    The video has not yet been released.

    The eighth suspect, 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, is currently the subject of an international manhunt, and sources close to the investigation told CNN earlier on Tuesday that there's a "strong presumption" that another suspect was at large.

    Investigators also found a cell phone on Tuesday which they believe to be linked to the attackers. Discovered in a dustbin near the Bataclan concert hall, the phone reportedly contained a text that read "let's go."

    Authorities are currently analyzing a black Renault Clio which was registered in Belgium and may have used to bring the terrorists into France.

    A series of shootings and suicide bombings on Friday evening left 129 people dead in Paris, with hundreds more wounded. Through a series of country-wide raids, French authorities have arrested 23 individuals suspected of being involved in the incident. The Belgian government has also conducted its own investigation after the plot's "mastermind" was identified as Belgian citizen Abdelhamid Abaaoud.
