PARIS (November 15, 2015) — Four French officials have told The Associated Press that police questioned and released fugitive suspect Saleh Abdeslam hours after the Paris attacks.

He was one of three people in a car stopped by police Saturday morning. At this point in time, authorities had already identified Abdeslam as the renter of a Volkswagen Polo that was abandoned at the scene of the attack.

Three French police officials and a top French security official confirmed that officers stopped Abdeslam and checked his ID and then let him go.

The officials spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly disclose details of the investigation.
