It is the first time that the police find hard evidence of a possible link between T. and a liquidation.

38-year-old Samir 'Babbel' Jabli was killed in that attack.

The DNA on the shell casing was already linked to Ridouan T. last August. He was heard on July 15 this year about the discovery of his DNA on the shell casing, but did not want to make a statement.
