The manhunt for terrorism suspect Salah Abdeslam ended with his arrest Friday — and on Monday, police said they've also learned the true identity of one of his alleged accomplices in the deadly Paris attacks in November. That suspect is Laachroui Najim, who used a fake name and is wanted for arrest.
Police say Najim, 24, used the alias Soufiane Kayal to rent a safe house used by the attackers in Belgium — and that he's one of two men who were with Salah Abdeslam in a car that was checked by Hungarian police on Sept. 9, according to the Flanders News website, which adds that police say they found Najim's DNA at a safe house used by the terrorists.
The other man in that car died last Tuesday, when police conducted an anti-terrorism raid in Belgium. He had initially been identified as Samir Bouzid — but police say that was a fake identity, and that the man was actually Mohamed Belkaid, a 35-year-old Algerian.
