France has at least 100 neighbourhoods as bad as Belgium's jihadi hotspot Molenbeek, a prominent French politician has warned.

The minister for cities Patrick Kanner said there were scores of urban communities in France similar to the Brussels district, home to several extremists linked to terror activity in Europe.

It comes as it emerged that anti-terror police are still hunting eight suspects on the run after attacks in Brussels last week and in Paris in November.

Kanner sparked debate in France over the weekend when he claimed that 'around a hundred neighbourhoods' in France could be compared to Molenbeek, where Paris attack suspect Salah Abdeslam, his 'blood brother', Brahim, and the ringleader of the terror plot, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, once lived.

He said: 'We know that there are today around a hundred neighbourhoods in France which have potential similarities to what has happened in Molenbeek,' he said during a radio interview, though some in his own Socialist Party questioned the statement.
