Paris police looking for second suspect directly linked to attack

French officials say they are seeking a second fugitive directly involved in the Paris attacks.

There are not yet any more details about the second suspect.

At the same time, the brother of Salah Abdeslam, thought to be the eighth terrorist invovled in the attacks, is calling for him to turn himself in.

Mohamed Abdeslam, who spoke to French TV BFM Tuesday, says his brother was devout but showed no signs of being a radical Islamist.

“Of course I call on him to turn himself over to the police. The best would be for him to give himself up so that justice can shed all the light on this,” the brother says.

Mohamed was arrested and questioned following the attack and was released Monday. He says his brother prayed and attended a mosque occasionally but dressed in jeans and pullovers and showed no signs of being a radical.
