    Paris attacks suspect Abdeslam changed his mind and 'will not fight extradition'

    March 24, Paris: Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam has changed his mind and will not fight extradition from Belgium to France, his lawyer said. 
    Abdeslam is one of the key suspects in November's Paris attacks which left 130 people dead, media reports said.

    Abdeslam's lawyer, Sven Mary, told French media that he "wishes to leave for France as quickly as possible" so he could "explain himself in France".

    He was arrested and wounded in a police raid on Friday in Brussels.

    On Tuesday, suicide bombs in Brussels killed 31 people. The attacks are thought to be linked to the Paris attacks network and Abdeslam's arrest.
    So-called Islamic State (IS) has said it was behind both attacks.

    Mary had previously said Abdeslam, a 26-year-old French national born in Belgium, intended to fight extradition to France, but was co-operating with police.
