French police issued a wanted notice and photo of Salah Abdeslam, who they believe was involved in Friday's killings along with his two brothers.

Officers have warned the public not to approach the 26-year-old Frenchman, born in the Belgian capital Brussels, and described him as dangerous.

Abdeslam rented a black Volkswagen Polo used by a group of hostage-takers who left at least 89 people dead inside the Bataclan concert hall, an official said.

Here is what we know so far about the other attackers:

:: Prosecutors believe three teams of terrorists carried out the co-ordinated attacks

:: As many as three of the seven suicide terrorists killed on Friday night were French. Two were Frenchmen living in Brussels

:: Three Kalashnikov assault rifles were discovered inside the Seat car used in the attacks which was found in the suburb of Montreuil, four miles east of Paris

:: One of the attackers was identified as 29-year-old Frenchman Ismael Mostefai, who had been flagged for links to Islamic radicalism

:: Seven people have been arrested in Belgium and six in France in connection with the killings, including Mostefai's father and brother

:: At least one of the men arrested in Belgium was a French national

:: It is believed that one or more of the attackers passed through Greece as a refugee
