The runaway assassin of Paris was in Hungary twice

The runaway assassin of Paris was in Hungary twice

According to Salah Abdeslam was at Keleti railway station on the 9th and 17th of September. It is not improbable that he recruited his team for the assassination in Paris on the 13th of November. He can be the last assassin alive. Investigators think that he might have escaped to Syria.

The French BFM TV reported that he came to Budapest from Belgium twice with a rented car in last September. It is believed that he came to Hungary with a rented Mercedes on the 8th of September and with an Audi A6 on the 17th. For the first time he parked at Baross Square, and on Thököly Road – near Keleti railway station – for the second time. He waited for around two hours both times.

In December the Belgian RTL channel reported about his first visit. This was confirmed by János Lázár, Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office. “To our knowledge and assumption he was at Keleti railway station and recruited a team from the immigrants who denied the registration, then left the country with them.” According to, Counter Terrorism also reported on this matter to the Nations Safety Board. Reputedly, it was also said at the meeting in November that Abdeslam had been recognised at Keleti.

He returned to Belgium via Germany and Austria on the 9th of September. He and two of his companions, Samir Bouzido and Soufiane Kajal were identity checked by Austrian authorities. He was in such a hurry that he drove with 196 km/h. On the 17th of September he parked near the Keleti for two hours.


BFM TV believes that Abdelhamid Abaoud, the inventor and organiser of the terrorist attacks, told his niece that he returned to Europe in secret with the immigrant wave.
