French television has broadcast what it says is a video taken from inside the restaurant where jihadi Brahim Abdeslam blew himself up during the Paris attacks on November13, killing himself and wounding several others.

The footage broadcast by France’s M6 on Sunday appears to show a man walking into the Comptoir Voltaire restaurant crowded with Friday night diners, looking down and covering his eyes before an explosion at his back propels his body forward.

The Associated Press was not immediately able to verify the footage’s authenticity.

The images are gruesome but reaction in France has been muted. A spokesman for France’s television watchdog says he couldn’t give the total number of complaints but says it wasn’t unusually high.

The November 13 attacks in Paris killed 130 and wounded hundreds more.
