Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam transferred to France

Paris, April 27 (IANS) Salah Abdeslam, arrested in March for his alleged role in the November 2015 Paris attacks, has been transferred to France from Belgium, federal prosecutors said on Wednesday.

The transfer took place early on Wednesday morning from the Beveren prison at the request of the French authorities, after the Belgian judiciary agreed in late March to extradite the alleged mastermind behind the attacks, EFE news reported.

Abdeslam wore an explosives belt on the night of the massacres, but said he “voluntarily” decided not to detonate it.

The jihadi attacks in the French capital last November 13 happened outside a soccer stadium and at cafes and a concert, leaving 130 dead.
