Paris attacks suspect handed over to France


Belgian authorities have handed over another suspect who was wanted in France in connection with the November attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

The Belgian Federal Prosecutor’s Office has announced the transfer of Hamza Attou, 22, in connection with a French arrest warrant.

It said the handover took place on Wednesday, but that no additional details would be made public.

Attou was one of two Brussels men who drove to Paris shortly after the November 13 attacks and brought suspected plotter Salah Abdeslam back to the Belgian capital.

Attou was arrested shortly afterwards. His Belgian lawyer said her client went on the trip just to keep the driver company.
