Paris attacks suspect extradited to France from Belgium: prosecutors
Salah Abdeslam, suspected of playing a major part in the Paris attacks which killed 130 people, has been extradited to France from Belgium, Belgian federal prosecutors said on Wednesday.
"I can confirm he's been extradited," a spokeswoman for Belgium's federal prosecutors said.
Abdeslam, 26, was Europe's most wanted fugitive until his capture in Brussels on March 18 after a four-month manhunt.
Investigators have said he told them he had arranged logistics for the Nov. 13 attacks and had planned to blow himself up at a sports stadium in Paris but backed out at the last minute.
