Paris attacks suspect: Deaths of innocents wasn't personal

Salah Abdeslam, the central defendant in the 2015 Paris attacks trial said on Wednesday that the coordinated killings were retaliation for French air strikes on the Islamic State (ISIS) group, and that the deaths of 130 innocent people in the attacks were “nothing personal”, The Associated Press reports.

The comments marked the first time that Abdeslam acknowledged his role in the Paris attacks.
