Extraordinary video has emerged from inside the filthy hotel rooms where the ISIS death squads made the final preparations for their bombing and gun rampage through Paris.
The footage shows a pile of used syringes, a set of short needles and plastic tubing scattered on a coffee table in a room littered with rubbish.
Forensic experts are trying to work out whether the paraphernalia was used to take drugs to fuel their killing spree or to help make their explosive belts.
The world’s most wanted man, Salah Abdeslam, 26, who played a key role in the attacks, booked the rooms at Appart’City hotel in the south-east Paris suburb of Alfortville in his own name.
Police have also found that his suicide bomber brother Ibrahim, 31, rented a safehouse 15km away in the capital’s Bobigny district, suggesting the terrorists used two properties before the raids.

Plotted atrocities with pizza and chocolate: Extraordinary video has emerged from inside the filthy hotel rooms where the ISIS killers made the final preparations for their bombing and gun rampage through Paris
The footage shows a pile of used syringes, needles and plastic tubing scattered on a table in a room littered with rubbish, suggesting the killers were on drugs or used the paraphernalia to help make their suicide belts
Pictures show the Appart’City hotel in Alfortville, where two rooms (one of which is circled, above) were rented the day before the attacks in Paris with the credit card of Salah Abdeslam
One witness who saw the attackers hinted to drug use after telling police that before the attack on the Bataclan concert hall, where 89 people were slaughtered, the men ‘were like zombies’.
It is common practice for jihadists involved in suicide attacks to take heroin and cocaine to steel themselves.
Using the website Booking.Com, he requested two large rooms that could accommodate a number of people for a week, paying with his own bank card.
The booking started last Wednesday, two days before the attack, it was reported by Le Point.
‘It allowed them to use rooms 311 and 312 of the hotel in Alfortville,’ said a source close to the criminal enquiry.
He added: ‘The hotel does not have video-surveillance camera.
‘The judicial police have found traces of DNA and confiscated the hotel’s computer desk from reception.’
The Alfortville hotel was used by at least two of the attackers.
Pizza leftovers and chocolate cakes bought from the hotel’s snack machine were found in one of their rooms.
The footage emerged as the landlady who rented a Paris safe house to members of the eight-strong ISIS killer squad on the eve of the attacks said they seemed ‘nice, kind and proper’ men.

Salah rented the rooms in the Alfortville commune before a wave of coordinated attacks took place in Paris
Two of the brothers at the heart of the plot that killed 129 people on Friday rented a flat in the Bobigny suburb of the French capital three days before it was launched.
Police believe the 100 euro a night apartment was rented from November 10 until today by cafe killer Ibrahim Abdeslam and his sibling Salah Abdeslam, who is still on the run.
Two days after the terror attacks armed police stormed the property but found it empty apart from some phones.
Meanwhile, police have found a third car linked to the Paris terror attacks in which 132 died.
The black Renault Clio was found in the Place Albert Kahn in the 18th arrondissement of the city.
The landlady who offered them the flat said the group of killers were ‘nice and proper’ and ‘well dressed men who didn’t have beards’.
The woman, who asked not to be named, said they were from Belgium and were in Paris on business.
Hideout: French believe an apartment in this block in Bobigny, Paris, was a hideout for members of the ISIS squad who carried out Friday’s terror attacks on the city
Missed: Police raided the property yesterday and found no weapons but the landlady now believes two of the brothers at the centre of the plot rented it from her for 100 euros a night
She told Europe 1: ‘They were very kind. There was nothing noticeably strange about them. They were nice, proper and well dressed.
‘They didn’t have beards and were wearing normal clothes’.
She said she ‘suspected nothing’ about the men but is sure that at least one was a suicide bomber because he showed her an ID card with the name of one of the terrorists, Ibrahim Abdeslam.
A neighbour has said he saw the brothers and other men at the flat and the rented Polo and Seat packed with guns and suicides vests were also parked outside.
Armed officers stormed the property yesterday but no weapons were found but they did find telephone.
Police sources have told the French media that a mobile phone linked to the bombers was found there, with some suggestions it may also have been used after the attacks.
As well as the Abdeslam brothers from Brussels, the secret flat may also have been used by two other suicide bombers.
Ex-bus driver Samy Amimour, 28, has links to the Bobigny area of Paris, and also may have been at the flat before her stormed the Bataclan.
Wanted: Salah Abdeslam, pictured, is still on the run and a rented VW Polo found abandoned near the scene of the concert massacre was also seen outside the Bobigny flat

Suspects: French bomber Omar Mostefai, centre, killed himself at the Bataclan and Samy Amimour, 28, was also involved in the gig attack – and both may also have been at the safehouse
ISIS blood brothers Salah and Ibrahim Abdeslam booked rooms at the Appart’City hotel in the south-east Paris suburb of Alfortville and a safehouse 15km away in Bobigny district in the days before the massacre, suggesting the terrorists used two properties to plan the attacks. Salah’s car was also found in north Paris
PARIS ATTACKS: WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE MASSACRE SUSPECTS
Ismail Omar Mostefai, 29, a Frenchman of Algerian descent was involved in Bataclan concert hall attack. He was a known terror suspect in in 2010 and arrived in Turkey heading for Syria in 2013 and vanished.
Samy Amimour, 28, was involved in Bataclan attack. French, from Drancy, Saint Denis, north of Paris. Subject of international arrest warrant since late 2013. Had been under official investigation since October 2012 on suspicion of terrorism-related activity over a plan to go to Yemen.
Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, brother of wanted man Salah Abdeslam, a key suspect still at large. French, resident of Belgium. Blew himself up at Comptoir Voltaire cafe in Paris.
Bilal Hadfi, 20, was involved in Stade de France attack. Belgian national who previously fought in Syria with ISIS.
Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, is a suicide bomber involved in Stade de France attack. Passport found beside dead body of kamikaze bomber carries his name. Believed to have entered Europe posing as a migrant.
KEY SUSPECTS AT LARGE:
Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, Belgian, suspected brains behind the attacks, apparently in Syria. Abaaoud is from yje Molenbeek district of Brussels and encouraged a 13-year-old boy who left Belgium to become a fighter in Syria.
Salah Abdeslam, 26, French, born in Brussels. Suspected of having rented black VW Polo car used in attacks in Paris. COuld also be a shooter
Mohammad Abdeslam: brother of Salah and Brahim, arrested in Belgium. Now released.
Homegrown terrorist Omar Ismaël Mostefai, 29, was also one of the Bataclan suicide bombers where 89 died, and his mobile may have been found in the flat, according to the French media.
If the men met at the flat it raises huge questions about the level of surveillance in France on terror suspects.
The Abdeslam brothers have known links to other terrorists and organised crime and live in the Molenbeek area of Brussels known as the ‘jihadi capital of Europe’.
The mastermind of the plot Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, also hails from the suburb and is now one of ISIS’ top recruiters and now among the world’s most wanted war criminals.
Mostefai was flagged as a terror suspect’ and notified French authorities in December 2014 and in June 2015 – but had no response from France until after the Paris attacks when it requested information on Mostefai.
The Bataclan killer entered Turkey in 2013 but authorities have no record of him leaving but it is clear he managed to get back to France.
Amimour, 28, was known to anti-terror officers in 2012 when he was prosecuted for trying to flee France to join Al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen.
A year later he slipped out of France to join ISIS in Syria.
His father, Mohamed, 67, never lost contact with his son and they would speak on Skype every month even though the former bus driver had no idea of the extent of the influence ISIS exerted on him.
He went to the war-torn country to plead with him to come back but his they were always with an ISIS handler and the son decided to stay.
Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, blew himself up in the Comptoir Voltaire bar while Salah, 26, is the subject of an international manhunt.
He was stopped by police on the Belgian border but not detained.
A dramatic raid on a flat in the now notorious Molenbeek district of Brussels, a hotbed of radical Islam where they grew up, failed to uncover him yesterday.
The focus of the investigation appears to have moved towards Belgium.
It is believed that the ISIS terror cell may have met there before the raid to gather automatic weapons and suicide vests before driving into France in cars rented by the Abdeslam brothers.
Mastermind of the plot Abdelhamid Abaaoud has bragged about how easily he has found it to travel from Syria to Molenbeek despite being one of the world’s most wanted men.
He said earlier this year: ‘So they gathered intelligence agents from all over the world – from Europe and America – in order to detain me.
‘I was able to leave and come to Syria despite being chased after by so many intelligence agencies. All this proves that a Muslim should not fear the bloated image of the crusader intelligence.’
Clues: This Renault Clio with Belgian licence plates was found abandoned on a pedestrian crossing in a northern district of Paris today after it was rented by Salah Abdeslam, the prime suspect in the Paris attacks
The car was seen on the A1 motorway as part of what may have been preparatory contacts between groups in Paris and Belgium in the run-up to the attacks
Meanwhile, it emerged that a car rented by Salah Abdeslam that was found abandoned today may have been part of an aborted attack on the city.
The black Renault Clio with Belgian licence plates was discovered on a pedestrian crossing on Place Albert Kahn in the 18th arrondissement of the city this morning.
Abdeslam, 26, still on the run four days after the attacks, rented at least two cars used by the ISIS gang in attacks that killed 129 people on Friday.
After the massacre ISIS claimed responsibility in an audio message that praised the killing of ‘infidels’ at the ‘Stade de France, in the 10th, 11th and 18th arrondissements.’
But there was no suicide bombing or shooting in the 18th arrondissement, suggesting that one may have been planned but abandoned the last minute.
Salah went on to evade police twice in the the three days after the attacks and has now vanished.
Raid: Heavily-armed members of the German SEK special forces police unit outside a house in Alsdorf where two men were arrested
Operation: Two women and a man were also captured in a car as they were driving through the small town
It has now emerged that he was also stopped and questioned weeks before the attacks.
Austria’s interior ministry has said the fugitive entered the country about two months ago.
Ministry official Karl-Heinz Grundboeck said he passed over the border from Germany on September 9 with two others.
Grundboeck says Abdeslam’s identity was established during a routine traffic check and Salah said they were on a week’s holiday together.
The revelations came as police arrested two women and three men in Alsdorf near Aachen close to Germany’s border with Belgium and Holland this morning.
Three were captured as they were driving through the small town while two more were held at a nearby flat.
Local police said the five terror suspects held may be linked to the attacks on Paris that killed 129 people – but it appears unlikely that Salah Abdeslam, 26, was among them.
A spokesman said: ‘We have received indications that one of the Paris fugitives may be staying in our area’.
A witness to the first arrests told Aachener Zeitung that several police cars pulled over a ‘compact car’ in front of the local job centre and the passengers were put in separate vans.
Meanwhile, police are said to have found bullets and bomb-making ingredients including fertiliser at the Brussels homes of two men being held on suspicion of terrorist offences in connection with Friday’s attacks.
Lawyers for the men have said they are innocent and got caught up in the case because they drove to Paris early on Saturday to fetch Salah Abdeslam after he called them to say his car broke down.
The Belgian tabloid Derniere Heure said the two men in custody had ammonium nitrate fertilizer in their homes but both have denied it had been purchased to make explosives, the paper said.
It is also claimed officers found ammunition in one of the homes, including bullets used in Kalashnikov assault rifles used by some of the Paris attackers.
Police carried out another 128 counter-terrorism raids across France including the Croix Rouge district of Reims, where armed officers were seen breaking down doors and dragging suspects away. It follows 168 raids yesterday in other cities including Toulouse, Grenoble, Jeumont and two suburbs of Paris

Operations: Witnesses said they also heard explosions and sounds like gunfire during the operation to surround the top floor flat in Brussels today. One soldier, left, appeared to be in charge and after the gas was fired in troops used a thermal camera to watch the results
A lawyer for one of the arrested men, Mohamed Amri, said that his client was unaware of any plot.
Amri’s lawyer has said he and the other unnamed suspect drove to Paris to bring Salah Abdeslam, 26, back to Brussels early on Saturday.
Police stopped their car near the Belgian border but allowed them to drive on before tracking them down and arresting them in Brussels. By then Abdeslam had vanished.
Earlier today, special forces took part in 128 counter-terrorism raids across France as the massive manhunt continued.
Addresses were raided in towns and cities ranging from Strasbourg in the east to Toulouse in the south-west as arrests were made and weapons confiscated.
In Reims, east of Paris, armed officers were seen breaking down doors and dragging suspects away in the Croix Rouge district.
It is known as a hotbed of Islamic radicalism and was the home of one of the Charlie Hebdo killers who struck in January.
Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said there were currently 115,000 police, gendarmes and soldiers dedicated to the current crisis, which started last Friday when 132 people were murdered at sites across Paris, including a concert venue and the Stade de France stadium.
It came after 168 raids yesterday and dozens of arrests.

The killers had emptied 11 magazines, firing an estimated 330 rounds.
SIXTH ATTACK: BATACLAN MUSIC HALL
- At 9.40pm, the third group (believed to be three men and a woman) armed with AK-47s stormed the Bataclan music hall and began shooting members of the crowd. Survivors claim three blew themselves up and a fourth person was shot dead by police before they could detonate their bomb.
SEVENTH ATTACK: NEAR STADE DE FRANCE
- At around 10.15pm a third blast took place near the Stade de France, this time by a McDonald’s restaurant on the fringes of the stadium.

The US-led coalition in Syria was apparently told by Iraqi security sources that 24 extremists were involved in the terror operation planned in the ISIS capital Raqqa and it would involve 19 attackers including five others including bombmakers and planners. No detail was given of when or where an attack might take place.
