"The website will share information on high-profile internationally-wanted criminals, convicted of - or suspected of having committed - serious crimes or terrorist acts in Europe," Europol said.

"This is the first initiative on a pan-European level to jointly present a most wanted list on a common platform," the European police agency added in a statement.

People are encouraged to provide tip-offs – anonymously if they want - at www.eumostwanted.com. The site's launch comes after sharp criticism of the coordination between European authorities in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Each of the 28 EU members will select a number of key fugitives for the list, which will be regularly updated, the agency added.

A picture of each of the suspects is prominently displayed, along with a description of the allegations against them and a phone number of the police force hunting for them.

A total of 130 people died in the November 13 attacks on the French capital and an international manhunt is underway for Abdeslam.
