The chief suspect in the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam, was summoned to court in Brussels on Thursday morning after his arrest last week in the Belgian capital.

Belgian public broadcaster RTBF reported that a Brussels court must decide on Thursday whether to extend the detention period for Abdeslam and several other suspects arrested in connection with the Paris attacks.

Investigators suspect that Abdeslam was probably going to be part of an attack being planned by the ISIS that carried out blasts in Brussels airport and in the city's metro.

"I think he wanted to see me because he had a visit from the investigators" on Tuesday, said lawyer Sven Mary.

Attention turned Thursday to Paris attacks suspect Abdeslam, who evaded police in two countries for four months before Friday's capture in the Molenbeek neighborhood where he grew up.

FDA Proposes Ban on Powdered Medical Gloves
Doctor Chow says powdered gloves are commonly used in surgery but are also used for everyday procedures. For only the second time in its history, FDA has proposed to remove a medical device from the market.

Up to seven terror suspects from the "super cell" thought to be behind both attacks remain at large in Europe.

The lawyer had said on Monday, before the attacks, that Abdeslam was collaborating and communicating, and he was "worth his weight in gold" for the investigation.

Mary had previously said Abdeslam, a 26-year-old French national born in Belgium, meant to fight extradition to France. "He wants to explain himself and this is a good thing", the lawyer said, according to Xinhua. France is seeking his extradition to face potential terrorism charges for his involvement in the November 13 attacks on a Paris rock concert, stadium and cafes, which killed 130 people.

The attacks killed at least 31 people and injured hundreds more, but authorities have discovered they could have been even worse, the New York Times reports.

Then came the attack in Brussels. Some sources suggest the deadly attacks in Brussels on Tuesday are linked to his arrest. "The heroes are our firefighters, our forces of order, our army".
