After being on the run for four months, Abdeslam, 26, was shot in the leg and captured Friday along with a suspected accomplice in a massive Belgian police raid in Brussels."I can tell you that he is collaborating with Belgian justice and that we will refuse the extradition to France," said Sven Mary, Abdeslam's lawyer. He said Abdeslam met with a Belgian investigating magistrate Saturday but had to be questioned lying down due to his leg wound. French and Belgian anti-terrorism prosecutors had planned a teleconference call Saturday to discuss Abdeslam's extradition, among other items.Abdeslam is a childhood friend of the suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks.Most of the Paris attackers died on the night of the attacks, including Abdeslam's brother Brahim, who blew himself up.Abdeslam was not armed but did not immediately obey orders when confronted by police, Van der Sypt said.Belgian prosecutors said they were not sure of the identity of the presumed accomplice arrested with Abdeslam.
