Video Preview

Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam is "behaving well" behind bars, according to staff at the prison where he is being held.

Video has been released from inside Fleury-Merogis, Europe's largest prison, where Abdeslam is being kept in isolation.

Prison director Nadine Picquet said he has been an "easy inmate to deal with" and "has not been causing any particular trouble".

She added: "For the moment, he sleeps a lot. He's resting. He reads."

Abdeslam is thought to have played a key role in planning the Paris attacks and transporting the attackers.

The 26-year-old French national was arrested in a raid on the 18 March in Brussels, after being on the run for four months.

He is remaining in custody until his next court appearance on 20 May.

Abdeslam's cell is fitted with a 24-hour CCTV system and all of the adjacent cells are being kept empty for security reasons. 

The attacks carried out by Islamic State in Paris on 13 November last year claimed 130 lives and left dozens wounded.

Abdeslam is believed to be the only surviving suspect involved in the attacks.
