Lawyer calls Paris attacks suspect Abdeslam a "little jerk"

The Belgian lawyer for Salah Abdeslam, the suspect in the Paris attacks who has been transferred to the French capital, has dismissed the man who was Europe’s No.1 fugitive until his capture last month as having “the intelligence of an empty ashtray.”” Sven Mary, in a profile published Wednesday by the French daily Liberation, said Abdeslam was a “little jerk among Molenbeek’s little delinquents, more a follower than a leader.” Abdeslam, a 26-year-old Frenchman of Moroccan origin, grew up in the Molenbeek district of Brussels from where three teams launched the Nov. 13 attacks on Paris that killed 130 people.
