Belgian Investigators: Print of Paris terror suspect found in search.

BRUSSELS (TAP) - Belgian investigators searching a Brussels apartment have found the fingerprint of a fugitive wanted in connection with the Paris terrorist attacks, as well as material that might have been used to assemble suicide belts and traces of an explosive used in the assaults, officials announced on Friday.

The discoveries suggest that the third-floor apartment on Rue Berge in the Brussels district of Schaerbeek might have been for a time the hide-out of Salah Abdeslam, who is wanted in connection with the Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed.

Abdeslam, a Belgian-born French national, remains at large and is one of Europe's most-wanted men.

Nine people are currently being detained by Belgian police in connection with the Paris attacks, and one other person has been granted conditional release.
