Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam wants to cooperate with French authorities, his lawyer said Thursday, confirming that his client wanted to be extradited from Belgium to France.
"He wants to cooperate with the French authorities," lawyer Cedric Moisse said, as a prosecutor was set to travel to the prison in the city of Bruges where Abdeslam has been held since March 18 for an extradition hearing.
Abdeslam has not spoken to investigators since Brussels was hit by suicide bombs at the airport and a metro station last week. He has links to several of those involved in the attacks on the Belgian capital.
