Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam faces questioning in France

Must read

Salah Abdeslam, the leading suspect in last year’s Paris terror attacks, will be questioned by France for the first time since his extradition from Belgium.

Authorities and families of the victims of the November 13 atrocity in which 130 people died hope his evidence will shed light on the Islamic State’s strategies in Europe and identify others who might have been involved in bloodshed.

Abdeslam is expected to be transferred from a high-security prison in the Parisian suburb of Fleury-Merogis to the main Paris court on Friday morning for questioning by investigating judges.

His lawyer, Franck Berton, refused to comment before Friday’s session, which could last all day.

Adeslam was charged with a string of preliminary terror offences after his transfer from Belgium, where he was arrested after four months on the run.
