French police on Tuesday (November 17) searched a black Reunault Clio believed to have been used by some of the attackers who went on a deadly rampage killing 129 people in Paris on November 13.

Police found a third Belgian-licensed car believed to have been used by the attackers and sealed off the area around it in Paris' 18th district in northern Paris as they searched the car and then towed it away for further investigations.A manhunt was continuing in France and Belgium on Tuesday for one of the eight attackers who killed 129 people in shooting and bomb attacks on restaurants, a music hall and a sports stadium in the Paris region on Friday.

French police staged 128 raids overnight in the hunt for accomplices and Islamist militant networks, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.

Cazeneuve told France Info radio police were making rapid progress in their investigation into the attacks but declined to give details.

Investigators searched a house in the suburb of Bobigny that had been rented by one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up in the attacks but found no useful evidence, a judicial source said.
