Police have named him as Abdeslam Salah, 36, who is from Brussels in Belgium.

He is one of three brothers officials believe took part in the mass slaughter in the capital city on Friday evening.

Security chiefs say the wanted man is part of the group which took hundreds hostage at the Bataclan concert hall, before killing 89 people in the venue.

Officials, who spoke under condition of anonymity, said one of the brothers was arrested in Belgium and another died in the attack.

An international warrant has been issued by France’s Police Nationale.

They have warned he is dangerous and must not be approached.

Officials put out the appeal for information on Salah but added “do not intervene yourself.”.

The mass killing at the theatre left at least one Briton dead.

Nick Alexander was working in the Bataclan as a merchandise manager for the band Eagles of Death Metal, when he died.

Seven people have so far been arrested in connection with the attacks in Paris.

Another eight attackers died in the city.

Thousands of French troops have been deployed on the streets of the French capital.

This warrant came following earlier reports a stash of weapons including three Kalashnikov AK47 rifles were discovered in a car police believe was used by the ISIS terrorists to flee Paris after murdering at least 129 people.

The abandoned vehicle was found in the suburb of Montreuil, east of Paris, suggesting some of those involved managed to leave the city.

The car was said to be a black Seat Leon car. It is thought to have been used by the gunmen who opened fire on a restaurant in central Paris on Friday evening.

The manhunt echoes that of the pursuit following the Charlie Hebdo murders in January.

That ended with suspects taking a print works owner hostage.

He was released before the killers were shot dead by police.
