The main suspect in the trial over the November 2015 attacks in Paris claims three co-accused knew nothing about the plot, in his latest unscheduled intervention to disrupt proceedings.

“They helped me but they knew nothing at all” about the attacks plot, says Salah Abdeslam, the sole survivor of the group of assailants who killed 130 people.

“They are in prison but did nothing,” he adds before his microphone is cut by the presiding judge who then suspends the hearing.
