A manhunt is underway for the suspected bomb-maker who is believed to have made the suicide vests used by gunmen who carried out the Paris attacks.

Mohamed K, who is from Roubaix in northern France, is thought to have assembled the explosives and detonators in suicide vests, before giving them to the suicide bombers, who killed 129 people in Paris on Friday 13 November.

Belgian Police have issued a search warrant yesterday at the request of the French security services to find Mohammed K, who is believed to be at large and in hiding in Belgium.

A picture of him has been made public. He has a scar on his right hand. The alert issued from French police said: "Urgent detect: attacks Paris! Very dangerous. Specialising in explosives and detonators"
