Paris Attacks Suspect Extradited to France

Salah Abdeslam, suspected of playing a major part in the Paris attacks that 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, Reuters reported. Investigators have said Abdeslam 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.
