Paris Attacks Suspect Sentenced To 20 Years Over Police Shootout

A Belgian court found the suspect guilty of attempted murder over a shootout with police shortly before his arrest in 2016.


CNN reports the attacker was on an anti-terror watch list of people suspected of having radicalized views.

The stabbing comes less than two months after a terrorist attack in southern France. A police officer was killed during that attack after he switched places with a hostage.
