This cuts to the center of the issue. I will blow myself up . . . no wait, I've changed my mind.
PARIS (Reuters) - Salah Abdeslam, the Paris attacks suspect who was arrested in Brussels last month, refused to blow himself up on the day of the attacks, his brother Mohamed told French news channel BFM TV.
Abdeslam, who will be extradited to France, has renewed an offer to cooperate with French authorities investigating the Nov. 13 attacks that killed 130 people, his lawyer said this week.
"There would have been more victims had I done it," Salah Abdeslam told his brother. "Luckily, I couldn't go through with it."
