'Mother of satan' explosives belt found dumped in a dustbin in Paris suburb

Police in Paris found a suicide bomber's explosive belt dumped in the southern Paris suburb from where fugitive terror suspect Salah Abdeslam escaped the city.

A neighbour is said to have checked the bin where the explosive belt was dropped in the afternoon, before phoning local council who launched an emergency evacuation.

The discovery of the explosive belt in a dustbin in Montrouge, in the Hauts-de-Seine department, is hugely significant because it supports the theory that Abdeslam abandoned his mission.
Police said the belt contained bolts and the same explosive chemicals as those used on the attacks on the French capital. 
It comes as one of 16 people arrested in Brussels last night was charged with terror offences relating to the Paris attacks. The rest were released without charge.
A French police source said: 'The belt was found in a dustbin, and is said to be very similar to those worn by the Paris terrorists. Its detonator had been removed.
'The area around the dustbin has been sealed off, and bomb disposal experts are in the area. 
'Judicial police are at the scene, together with forensics experts and anti-terrorist officers.' 
The explosive belt was found to contain TATP, or triacetone triperoxide.
Jihadis call it 'Mother of Satan', because of the ease with which it is detonated. It is highly sensitive to heat, shock and friction.
The explosive belt is thought to have been dumped in a bin next to an empty house once used as a squat in Montrouge.

Abdeslam, 26, fled the bloodbath that left 130 dead on November 13 rather than blowing himself up.

Police said the explosive belt was found in the place where Abdeslam's mobile phone was operating on the day of the Paris attacks.
According to NBC News, a spokesperson for the prosecutors' office confirmed a cell phone had also been found near the belt.

Investigators believe the jihadist gang that carried out eight coordinated attacks planned to strike another target but Abdeslam changed plans at the last minute.
In its statement claiming responsibility for the attacks, ISIS referred to an attack in the 18th arrondissement, where the popular tourist spot of Montmartre is located. An attack there on a warm November night would have been devastating.

Imagine what would have happened if he didn't abandon his mission..He his still on the run and reports have it that he was spotted driving along the E40 road in the direction of Germany but authorities in Belgium were unable to intercept him.
