‘It is not the final conclusion of this story because there have been arrests already and there will have to be more.
‘We know the terrorists’ network was widespread in Belgium, France, and other countries in Europe, too.
‘Until we have arrested all of those who took part, organised and financed the network that carried out the abominable attacks in Paris, our fight will not be over.
‘We have to go on with our efforts because we are aware there are still connections that lead us to Syria, where the Daesh [ISIS] group wanted these attacks to be organised. It is from Syria that a number of these actors of this atrocity [Paris attacks] started.’
Hollande confirmed he has asked for Belgium to extradite Abdeslam to his country, adding: I’m certain of the extradition procedures and I believe he [Abdeslam] should be interrogated and punished in France.’
