"There were wires; one white, one black, one red and one orange. Four different colors."

“The first wire I saw was red. I think that was the detonator,” David said. “There was something at the end.”

As soon as he realized the person he was trying to save had just tried to kill him, David says the fire services arrived. Among them was a fireman he knew. He told him what he had just seen. “He looked at me and started shouting for everyone to evacuate,” he said…

“He had a large opening on his side, about 30 cms (11.8 inches),” he said. “When you lift a t-shirt and you see wires, you know that’s not normal.”

David says police told him that Abdeslam’s bomb had not fully exploded.
