Paris Suspect's Brother Urges Him to Turn Himself In: 'He Must Accept Responsibility'
The brother of one of the suspected Paris terrorists is urging him to hand himself in.
Mohamed Abdeslam has appeared in televised interviews to plead with his younger brother, Salah Abdeslam, who has been on the run since Friday's attacks.
"I would tell him to surrender. That's the best solution," Mohamed told CNN. "But of course, if he has something to do with it, he must accept responsibility."
Another of their brothers, Ibrahim, is believed to have blown himself up outside a cafe during the attacks, which left 129 people dead across the city. Six of the attackers either killed themselves or were killed by police.
"These are not regular people," Mohamed continued. "Even if you saw them every day, their behavior was quite normal."
The family is concerned for Salah, he said.
"We are a family, we are thinking about him, we are wondering where he is, if he’s scared, if he’s eating," he said.
It emerged on Sunday that Salah Abdeslam was stopped by Belgium-France border officials before they were informed he was a suspect.
Abdeslam's name was used to rent the suspected getaway car but he was let go by officials before that information - and his international arrest warrant - could reach them.
As a manhunt for Abdeslam continued, police warned citizens not to approach him as he is considered very dangerous.
