Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam to be extradited to France

Washington D.C., Apr. 1 (ANI): A Belgian court has ruled that Paris terror attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam can be extradited to France.

According to CNN, Belgian and French authorities will now deliberate on how to carry out the transfer and it remained unclear as to when the extradition would occur.

Following the deadly series of attacks in Paris on November 13 last year that left 130 people dead, Abdeslam became the most- wanted man in Europe.

He was captured this month by Belgian authorities after a shootout in Molenbeek, an impoverished suburb of Brussels that has also been home to several other terror suspects.

The 26-year-old suspect, who is one of the 10 men accused of carrying out the deadly attacks in the French capital last year, is being held in Belgium under a European arrest warrant at the demand of French authorities. (ANI)
