The sole survivor of the jihadi team that wrought carnage in Paris in November 2015 – who goes on trial in Belgium Monday over the shootout – remains something of an enigma. Abdeslam is suspected of playing a key role in the Nov. 13 attacks when Daesh (ISIS) militants killed 130 people enjoying a Friday night out.On the night of the Paris massacre, he was equipped with a suicide belt.After four months on the run, Europe's most wanted man was caught in Brussels' Molenbeek neighborhood, telling investigators he had planned to blow himself up outside the Stade de France but changed his mind.A wounded Abdeslam was finally captured three days later in Molenbeek, where he once ran a bar with his brother Brahim, one of the Paris bombers.Last year, an internal Belgian police report said police in Molenbeek had warned their superiors in early 2015 that the brothers were radicalized, having linked them to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the ringleader of the Paris attacks and a known Daesh member.
