Search Continues For Mastermind Behind Paris Terror Attacks: New Video Threatens U.S.

The search continues for the twenty-something mastermind behind the devastating Paris terror attacks that killed over 127 people at the Bataclan concert hall and other locations throughout the French Capital.

French authorities confirmed that the Belgian 27 year-old is Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who fought in Syria for ISIS and lead the Paris attacks. 

The search for 26 year-old accomplice, Salah Abdeslam was unsuccessful on Monday, after a raid took place in Brussels. 

As authorities search for the terrorists at-large, a new video has been released by ISIS which threatens attacks on Washington, D.C. and other coalition partners fighting against the terrorist group. 

The young man in the frame, book-ended by two armed individuals said, “We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington."
