Paris attacks: Suicide bomber video shown on French TV

Disturbing video of an Islamic State militant blowing himself up on the night of the Paris attacks in November has been broadcast in France.

The CCTV footage shows Brahim Abdesalam detonating his suicide belt in the Comptoir Voltaire cafe.

It has drawn shocked comments on social media but no formal complaint to France's broadcast regulator.

Documentary maker Christian Huleu said it was important to show the reality of the militants' violence.

He defended the use of the images, which are the most graphic of the attacks yet seen on French television.
