Salah Abdeslam, the most wanted man in Europe at the moment due to his presumed involvement in the attacks in Paris, had reserved two rooms in a Alfortville hotel in the calm commune of Val-de Marne in the Paris region. He used the rooms to prepare the attacks in Paris, reports several French media on Tuesday.
According to Le Point, who has the source of the information, two investigators have searched the two rooms where up to six people could have stayed. The hotel is not equipped with any video surveillance. The police revealed that DNA traces of the persons staying at the rooms were found and confiscated the hard drive disk from the computer at the hotel reception, according to Le Point.
Among the objects that were found, a batch of syringes and a set of short needles and intubation or plastic tubes could be found on a table in the room.
It is not clear if the syringes were intended for explosives, however it is also possible that they were intended to be used to drug the terrorists, report several other French media.
Further technical analysis will be carried out by the police to determine exactely what these medical instruments were used for.
