A key Paris attack suspect Salah Abdeslam is to be extradited to France. According to his lawyer, Abdeslam will be extradited from Belgium "in a few weeks" to allow for additional questioning by Belgian investigators.

His finger prints were found three days before his arrest in an apartment in the southern Brussels borough of Forest. He was arrested after a gunbattle during which an Islamist gunman was shot dead, and four police officers were injured.

Prosecutors want to question him about that incident. Abdeslam  was not present at a court hearing in Brussels on Thursday. The shooting and bombing rampage by Islamic State militants killed 130 people in Paris on Nov. 13.
