The first day of questioning was cut short after it became clear Salah Abdeslam was remaining tight-lipped.
For now, Salah Abdeslam is in court on charges relating to a police shootout in the Belgian capital in March 2016. Prosecutors hoped he would break his silence, but instead he remained defiant in court.
The first trial connected with the November 2015 Paris terror attacks has started, with Jawad Bendaoud appearing in court charged with harboring two jihadists after the attack. The 31-year-old is pleading his ignorance.
The surviving suspect in November's attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people, has appeared before a French court for his first hearing. However, Salah Abdeslam refused to answer any questions, officials said.
A Brussels court has agreed to send Salah Abdeslam, thought to be the sole surviving Paris attacker, to France. Abdeslam, a Molenbeek resident, also appears to have had links to the Brussels attackers.
