Belgian authorities say a man shot dead earlier this week as he prepared to fire on police "most probably" was an accomplice of fugitive Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.
The slain man was identified as an Algerian national, Mohamed Belkaid, 35. Federal prosecutors said Friday he is now believed to have been one of the two men seen with Abdeslam in a rental car on the Hungarian-Austrian border in September.
