The images of the death of Brahim Abdeslam, 31, were captured by CCTV cameras at the Comptoir Voltaire brasserie on November 13 last year.
It was the night that an ISIS cell brought carnage to the French capital, murdering 130 people at a number of venues across the city.
The terrorist walks towards an empty table, before lowering his head, covering his head with his left hand, and then detonating his suicide belt.
There is a puff of white smoke, and Abdeslam's torso can momentarily be seen separating from the lower half of his body.
He is killed instantly but incredibly others sitting around him escaped with relatively minor injuries.
There was so little left of Abdeslam's body, that forensic officers had to rely on a tiny portion of finger print to identity him.
