Salah Abdeslam, one of the suspects in the Paris attacks still on the run, hid in Schaerbeek for three weeks, La Dernire heure reported on Friday.
Ali Oulkadi dropped him off there on the 14th of November, and he stayed in a flat in rue Henri Bergé until the 4th of December. He then fled in hurry when police conducted two searches in Schaerbeek. The federal Prosecutor’s office has made no comment.

On the 9th of December last year, judicial federal police searched the flat in rue Henri Bergé and found Salah Abdeslam’s finger print. It was the same as the one found on material used to make explosives and traces of TATP. The flat was rented under a false identity used by Mohamed Bakkali, one of the suspects in custody.
