PARIS, FRANCE:  Top Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam, who was transferred from Belgium to France today, will be held in isolation in a Paris-area prison, French Justice Minister Jean-Jacques Urvoas said.

The 26-year-old Franco-Moroccan, believed to be the last surviving member of the terror squad that killed 130 people in Paris in November, will be monitored by “hardened guards trained in the detention of persons believed to be dangerous,” Urvoas told reporters, with Abdeslam expected to be charged later today.
