Paris massacre suspect charged with ‘terrorist murder’: Jihadi is ‘co-operating’ with police and fighting extradition to France as Hollande vows more arrests will follow

French President Francois Hollande has warned more arrests will follow after the top suspect in last year’s Paris massacre was charged by police over his role in the attacks.

Salah Abdeslam, 26, was seized in Belgium after being shot in the leg by armed police in the Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek, following a four-month manhunt for the ‘world’s most wanted terrorist’.

He was part of the ISIS terror cell that murdered 130 people at a rock concert, a football stadium and several cafes in Paris last November, with authorities fearing the terrorist network that carried out the attacks is much larger than first feared.

According to his lawyer Sven Mary, Abdeslam is said to be co-operating with police after he was charged with terrorist murder, but is opposing extradition to France.

    Well that’s that then – as soon as they capture the last couple of them, Hollande says the terrorist threat to Belgium and France will be over. It will be right? … Right?

    • Oh you bet! Things will be comin up roses!

        It’s so frustrating (and rather frightening) to observe: they are frantically bailing a leaking boat but refuse to try to repair the actual leaks – or even to recognize them.

        As many people have noted, unless and until the underlying issues of mass muslim immigration and the threat of Islam in general are seriously addressed, there is little hope for relative peace and order to return to Western societies.

    For all his shortcomings, Hollande at least has more balls than Justin and Obama, not that that takes much of course, but still. Last I knew the French were giving it to ISIS from the air, which our pussy pm of course put a stop to, opting instead for more “advising”. “Canada is back” to being rather like the Dutch. :rolleyes

      Yes, isn’t that something.
