Report: Abdeslam had photos of German nuclear research centre

Salah Abdeslam, the key suspect in November's Paris attacks, kept photos of a nuclear research centre in Germany in his Brussels apartment, a German media group reported Thursday.

Authorities who searched Abdeslam's apartment in the Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek found photos of the Juelich nuclear research centre in North-Rhine Westphalia, its chairman and other board members, Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND) reported.

RND cited several members of a parliamentary committee who said they had been briefed on the findings late last month by Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of Germany's domestic intelligence agency, the Verfassungsschutz.

Germany's Interior Ministry and the Chancellery said they have no knowledge of the findings, the report said.
