Paris attacks: Lawyers for Salah Abdeslam 'will not defend him'



Lawyers for the main suspect in last year's Islamist attacks in Paris say they will no longer defend him as he has chosen to remain silent.

 
Salah Abdeslam is angered at being placed under 24-hour video surveillance, Frank Berton told BFM TV.


"We said from the beginning... that if our client remained silent we would quit his defence," he said alongside fellow lawyer Sven Mary.


The attacks in Paris last November killed 130 people.


So-called Islamic State said it was behind the coordinated assaults on bars, restaurants, a concert hall and the Stade de France.


Salah Abdeslam was arrested in Brussels in March and has kept silent since his transfer to France in April.
