    The only surviving suspect from the 2015 Paris attacks is due to stand trial in Belgium.

    Salah Abdeslam is charged with trying to murder Belgium police in a shootout while on the run in Brussels.

    The Belgian-born Frenchman was arrested along with another suspect, four days before bomb attacks killed 32 people in the Belgian capital.
