The mother of Paris suicide bomber Ibrahim Abdeslam – whose two brothers are also suspects – has said her son “did not mean to kill anyone” and believes he blew himself up because of “stress”.
Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, detonated his suicide vest outside the Comptoir Voltaire cafe on Friday night, but did not kill anyone other than himself.
His brother Mohamed was arrested in Brussels on Saturday and a third sibling, Salah, is Europe’s most wanted man after becoming the subject of an international arrest warrant.
The Abdeslam family said they were “surprised” that Ibrahim blew himself up, even though he had spent time in Syria.
Their mother, speaking to a reporter through her nephew – the bombers’ cousin – outside the family home in Molenbeek, Brussels, told the Belgian website Het Laatste Nieuws that she was sure he had not planned to kill anyone.
