Reversing his decision, Europe’s most wanted man who was captured last week in Brussels now wants to be extradited to France. Salah Abdeslam, charged with murder during the Paris attacks, wants to leave as quickly as possible according to his lawyer, continuing that he wants to explain himself in France, where he initially resisted being sent.
As authorities continue to gather evidence and search for suspects, a connection between the attackers in Belgium and the Paris attackers is becoming clear.
When asked if Abdeslam had any reaction to the Brussels bombing his attorney said he had no reaction “because he didn’t know it.”
The manhunt also continues for two remaining suspects, one connected to Abdeslam and the Paris attacks, and the third airport bomber in Brussels.
