Mugshots of Europe's most wanted fugitives posted on manhunt website

Mugshots and descriptions of the 45 most wanted fugitives in Europe have been released on a new website, the European Union's law enforcement agency Europol said in a press release Friday.

The website, a cooperation between police in 28 EU member states and Europol, aims to aid authorities in finding fugitives by sharing information about convicted or suspected criminals, who have committed serious crimes or terrorist acts in Europe.

It features pictures and descriptions of suspected criminals, such as Salah Abdeslam, who is wanted for his alleged involvement in the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people in November.

Other profiles include convicted or suspected murderers, sex offenders and con artists.

Users can anonymously send tips to the appropriate authorities directly via the website, which is available in 17 languages.
