Lawyers for Paris attacks suspect stop defending him
PARIS - Lawyers for the only surviving suspect in last November's attack in Paris say they will no longer defend him.
The lawyers tell BFM-TV they've decided to stop representing Salah Abdeslam because he has chosen to remain silent in a protest against the 24-hour video surveillance of his prison cell.
Authorities hope Abdeslam can provide information about the Islamic State group's strategies and networks, and identify others who might have had a connection to the Nov. 13 attacks, which killed 130 people.
