The short and graphic clip was shown on TV programme Zone Interdite, which is broadcast on the channel M6 on Sunday night.
It shows Brahim Abdeslam, 31, brother of Salah Abdeslam standing in the middle of the Comptoir Voltaire cafe in eastern Paris. He puts his head in his hand as diners look on, before he detonates his suicide belt and is thrown out of view of the camera.
It was only Adbeslam who died from the blast, and it’s understood that the belt did not detonate correctly.
Twenty of the customers in the cafe were injured by the blast, one seriously.
The footage, which is embedded below, proved difficult to stomach for some French viewers on Sunday.
