PARIS – The only surviving suspect in last November's attacks on Paris is set to face an anti-terrorism judge for interrogation, after refusing past questioning in frustration at 24-hour video surveillance of his prison cell.
A helicopter circled over the Palace of Justice in central Paris as a car believed to be carrying Salah Abdeslam arrived Thursday morning.
He kept silent at a hearing in May, and refused to attend a hearing in July. Abdeslam's lawyer argued that the two live video cameras in his cell in Fleury-Merogis prison could cause psychological damage, but France's top administrative authority refused to order them removed.
Abdeslam was jailed after a months-long manhunt following the Nov. 13 attacks on a rock concert, cafes and the national stadium that killed 130.
