Belgium Sends Paris Attacks Suspects to France

     BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgian authorities say they have handed over two men to France who allegedly helped the top suspect in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks.
     The federal prosecutor’s office identified the two as Mohammed A. and Ali O. and said they were transferred Wednesday to France under a European arrest warrant.
     The Paris prosecutor’s office confirmed that they were Mohammed Amri and Ali Oulkadi. Amri is accused of going to Paris to pick up top suspect Salah Abdeslam after the attacks that killed 130 people.
     An official at the Paris prosecutor’s office says the two were questioned after the transfer by an investigating magistrate who was to hand down preliminary charges.
     It wasn’t immediately clear what charges they face. The official wasn’t authorized to speak about the cases and requested anonymity.
