Muslim Terrorist, Salah Abdeslam, from Paris Attacks CAPTURED

In November 2015, Muslim terrorists carried out coordinated attacks in Paris that killed over 130 people. The attacks occurred at places that are routine in the life of the Western world. The Muslims opened fire at a restaurant, stormed and attacked a concert hall, and attempted to attack a soccer match, but when they were not able to gain access, they set off suicide bombs outside of the stadium.

On Friday morning, CNN reported that one of the surviving attackers who fled Paris after the terrorist attack has been captured alive.

Twenty-six-year-old Salah Abdeslam, a Belgian-born French citizen, was captured by authorities in the Brussels of Molenbeek after a shootout with police. Though he was wounded, he is reportedly still alive. Abdeslam is believed to have dropped off three suicide bombers, including his brother, who detonated their bombs outside the soccer stadium. He is also believe the Abdelsam himself wore a suicide vest that was found in the streets of Paris after the terrorist attack.

The capture of Abdeslam was seemingly confirmed by Theo Francken, the Belgian asylum and migration minister, who tweeted in Dutch, “We got him.”

Molenbeek is described as an impoverished area and a hotbed for jihadism recruitment. There have been numerous people from this area who have been linked to terrorist plots and attacks.

Several members of its large, predominantly Muslim population — many of whom are first-, second- and third-generation immigrants from North Africa — have been linked to terror plots and attacks.

Last fall, Belgian Justice Minister Koen Geens cited Molenbeek as a place where more needs to be done to address what he called Belgium’s “foreign fighter problem.”
