Belgian lawyer vows fight over Paris attacks suspect


BRUSSELS: The lawyer for Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam launched a furious legal fight Sunday to avoid his extradition to France, after Europe’s most wanted fugitive spent his first night in a Belgian jail. At the same time Belgium’s foreign minister suggested that Abdeslam was also plotting “something” in Brussels, where he was caught Friday after four months on the run. Abdeslam is behind bars in a high security jail on charges of “terrorist murder” for his role in the November 13 gun and suicide attacks on the French capital, which killed 130 people.
