New CCTV images are thought to show Paris shooting fugitive Salah Abdeslam at a French petrol station the day after the deadly attacks.

The pictures, obtained by BFMTV, appear to show Abdeslam near the Belgian border with Hamza Attou, who is suspected of driving him to Brussels in the wake of the massacre.

Abdeslam's brother was one of the suicide bombers that targeted the Stade de France stadium on 13 November.

Attou and another man, Mohamed Amri, were pulled over with Abdeslam on a motorway near the border the following day without being detained.

The attacks, on the stadium, the Bataclan concert venue and a series of restaurants and bars, left 130 people dead.

Officials investigating the November 2015 Paris attacks have discovered a fingerprint belonging to fugitive Salah Abdeslam, together with traces of explosives and suicide belts, in a Belgium flat.

A fingerprint of Frenchman Abdeslam was found by detectives during a raid on 10 December in the Brussels district of Schaerbeek. It had been rented under a false name possibly linked to a person already in custody over the attacks.

The latest find adds to indications that the shooting and suicide attacks on 13 November last year that killed 130 people in Paris were partially planned in Belgium.

Paris confronts terrorism on Charlie Hebdo anniversary

A year after the Charlie Hebdo attack, police in Paris were again confronting terrorism.

A man, identified by authorities as 20-year-old Moroccon-born Salah Ali, wearing a fake suicide vest and armed with a meat cleaver was shot dead by police after he tried to enter a police station.

He had a sheet of paper with an IS flag and a written claim of responsibility.

Anti-terror police are to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting of a man who tried to enter a police station in Paris, the French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.

Visiting the scene of the shooting in the 18th arrondissement, northern Paris, Cazeneuve met police officers and paid tribute to their "courage, great bravery, and through their commitment show their ability to protect the French people."

The threat level in France is now "extremely high" he added.

The anti-terrorist prosecutor has taken over the investigation into what happened here at the end of the morning, and it'll be the prosecutor's job to talk about the first details of the inquiry.

The person who carried out this attack, and who was killed when the police were obliged to open fire, is being identified and in the coming hours we will be able to know more about his history and his motivation.
