French President, Francois Hollande"Salah Abdeslam was in Paris during this terrible night on November 13. Then, he fled. But what is at stake beyond the arrest of Salah Abdeslam which we are sure of is that he participated in one way or another in the attacks. We must catch all those who allowed, organised or facilitated these attacks and we realise, without going into the details of the investigation, that they are a lot more numerous than we thought earlier and had identified."

Prosecutors say a second wanted man, who used the false name of Amine Choukri, was also wounded and captured in the raid on the apartment in Abdeslam's home neighborhood of Molenbeek.
