PARIS — French and Belgian police have issued an international arrest warrant for a possible eighth person involved in Friday’s attack.

An alert has gone out for Abdeslam Salah, one of three French brothers who were living in the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek.

The 26-year-old is currently the subject of an international manhunt in the wake of being recognized as the main surviving terrorist from the attacks that left 129 people dead.

Officials have revealed Abdeslam was questioned, had his papers checked and was then released close to the Belgian border by French police, hours after the attacks.

Security sources said two of his brothers were also involved and that one of the brothers, 31-year-old Brahim Abdeslam, died in the attacks, while another has been arrested in Belgium.

The investigation points to the likelihood of a team led by French nationals, based in Belgium. The two countries have pledged to work together.
