    This undated file photo provided by the Belgian Federal Police shows 26-year old Salah Abdeslam, who is wanted by police in connection with recent terror attacks in Paris, as a police investigation continues on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015. Abdeslam's lawyer said he is ready to be extradited to France.

    The lawyer for the chief Paris attacks suspect said his client is not fighting extradition to France, which is seeking his extradition from Belgium to face potential terrorism charges.

    Salah Abdeslam's lawyer, Sven Mary, told reporters in Brussels on Thursday that he asked for a one-month delay on any transfer while he studies the large dossier.

    He said that Abdeslam "wants to leave for France as quickly as possible."

    Abdeslam was captured in Brussels last week after four months on the run following the Nov. 13 Paris attacks on a stadium, rock concert and cafes that killed 130 people.
