Did hunted Paris gunman chicken out of suicide? (The Local,  20 Nov 2015)

Salah's brother Brahim who's also believed to have been behind the terrace shootings, blew himself up at the Comptoir Voltaire on Friday night but the subsequent actions of the missing Salah has lead investigators to believe that he may have decided to flee rather than blow himself up.

Salah Abdeslam reportedly wandered the streets of Paris for several hours on Friday after the attacks as he waited for an acquaintance to drive from Brussels to pick him up.

An alleged friend of his told Belgian website Sud.Info that Abdeslam was in the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek as recently as Tuesday night and that he regretted what he did.

"I met him on Tuesday night. He was in Molenbeek but not for long," the friend said, who added that he was asked by Salah to give a message to his brother.

"He told me he had gone too far. It went beyond what it was meant to be. But he could not turn himself in. This could have consequences for his family," implying that he feared members of Isis would take revenge.

Speculation persists that Salah Abdeslam either panicked or decided at the last minute not to kill himself.
