Suspected Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam has been placed under formal investigation on charges of belonging to a terrorist organisation, murder, kidnapping and holding weapons and explosives.

I think it's important for everybody to know that he wants to explain himself.


His lawyer Frank Berton made the following statement: “I think it’s important for everybody to know that he wants to explain himself. So now, we are at the very beginning of the investigation and legal proceedings. This is his first appearance. He was notified of the charges against him. He is in detention. A copy of the file has been handed to me and we’ll get to work and then we will be heard by the judges. “

He is currently being held in solitary confinement
in Fleury-Mérogis, a prison outside the capital, as the case against him is compiled.


Two others involved were killed five days later in a police raid.
