French detectives questioned one of the jihadis behind Friday’s terror attacks as he crossed the Belgian border and let him go after he showed them his ID card.
Officers pulled over Salah Abdelsam on Saturday morning on the A2 motorway between Paris and Brussels in a hired car used in the attacks.
Detectives soon discovered their blunder when they discovered that Abdeslam had rented VW Polo abandoned near the scene of the massacre inside the Bataclan theatre. However, by the time they alerted Belgian authorities, the jihadi had abandoned the car in the jihadi stronghold of Molenbeek, Brussels and disappeared.
An international manhunt has been launched.
