Salah Abdeslam: Paris suspect attacks ‘anti-Muslim bias’

The prime surviving suspect from the 2015 Paris terror attacks is refusing to speak any further in a Belgian court, where he is on trial over the gunfight that led to his arrest.

Salah Abdeslam has said he will not respond to questions from the judge.

“My silence does not make me a criminal, it’s my defence,” he said.

Abdeslam, 28, claimed that Muslims were “judged and treated in the worst of ways, mercilessly”, and said he was placing his trust in Allah.

“I am not afraid of you, I am not afraid of your allies,” he added, without making clear who he meant.
