Belgian police have found more safe houses they suspect were used by the Paris attackers
A flat in the southern Belgium city of Charleroi contained the fingerprints of Bilal Hadfi, one of the suicide bombers and those of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Belgian citizen of Moroccan origin believed to have been the ringleader, who was killed after a raid in Paris on November 18.
Another house used by the perpetrators was discovered in Auvelais, a small village near the French border.
"The investigators were able to identify three premises that have been used by the conspiring perpetrators of the attacks of 13th November 2015," Eric Van Der Sypt, a spokesperson for the Belgian public prosecutors, told reporters.
The November 13 attacks in Paris left 130 people dead and dozens injured following a coordinated shooting and suicide bomb assault across the French capital, targeting cafes, bars, a concert hall, and an international football match between Germany and France.
The three possible safe houses had been rented for one year, the tenants used false identities, and the rent had been paid in cash. The two apartments had been rented at the start of September and the house in early October.
Police also found that the car used during the Paris attacks stopped near the suspected safe houses in Charleroi and Auvelais, and that another vehicle rented by a suspect, stopped near all three locations.
