By Alastair Macdonald and Clement Rossignol BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Salah Abdeslam, the prime surviving suspect in November's Paris attacks, answered questions from Belgian investigators on Saturday, but will fight extradition to France, his lawyer said. Belgian prosecutors said Abdeslam and a second man arrested with him on Friday were charged with "participation in terrorist murder". "He is cooperating with Belgian justice," his lawyer Sven Mary told reporters, adding Abdeslam, bedridden after being shot in the leg during his capture, admitted being in Paris on Nov. 13.
