Extradition of Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam could take weeks: Lawyer

Abdeslam was arrested on March 18, four months after fleeing to Belgium from the French capital

Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in November's Paris attacks, may not be extradited from Belgium to France for weeks.

That's according to his lawyer Sven Mary. These pictures show Mr. Abdeslam's representative arriving at a Brussels court on Thursday, April 7, for a hearing on the French national's detention.

Terror suspect Salah Abdeslam was arrested on March 18 after evading police for four months. He has remained silent for over two weeks, since the suiside bombings in Brussels.
