Despite fears he is plotting a terror attack on Paris.

French security chiefs are hunting an Afghan asylum seeker over fears he is plotting a terror attack on Paris – but are refusing to make his picture public.
The unnamed man has reportedly been in France for the last two months and police are understood to have circulated a picture of the suspect.
But incredibly, French intelligence are not making the image of the suspect available to the public.
It comes after it emerged that a picture of one of the ISIS fanatics who butchered a priest in Normandy was sent to police stations four days before the atrocity was carried out.
As well as the image of Abdelmalik Petitjean, security services were warned an attack was imminent. The 19-year-old later killed Father Jacques Hamel, 85, in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.
His photo had been widely distributed to police stations after the anonymous tip-off ‘from abroad’ on July 22. It was received with a colour photograph of Petitjean, and said he ‘was preparing to take part in an attack on national territory’.
