Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam - Europe's most wanted fugitive until his capture in Belgium last month - has been returned to France and charged with a host of terror-related offenses, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

The return to Paris of the last known survivor of those believed to have carried out the Nov 13 attacks in the French capital may help investigators untangle some of the still-unresolved questions about the assault, which claimed 130 lives at restaurants, a noted music hall and a sports stadium outside the city. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the carnage.

Attorney Frank Berton told reporters that his client "volunteered that he would explain himself at some later date".
