Text size Aa Aa

Europe’s most wanted man, Salah Abdeslam has been moved from hospital to a high-security jail in Belgium where he has been questioned and awaits charges for his alleged role in the Paris terror attacks.

According to his lawyer he is cooperating with police but will refuse extradition to France.

The first suspect to be taken alive, the information Abdeslam gives could provide vital insight into the ISIL terror group.

Security services will be looking for answers on ISIL’s plans and structures, Abdeslam’s contacts in Europe and Syria as well as his support networks and finances.

After four months on the run, the 26-year-old was finally captured during a raid on a flat in the Molenbeek area of Brussels on Friday.
