20 suspects in Paris terrorist attacks trial: Who they are

W300

A total of 20 men are facing a verdict Wednesday over the 2015 Paris attacks by Islamic State extremists on the Bataclan theater, Paris cafes and the national stadium.

Most attention has focused on the lone surviving member of the attack team, Salah Abdeslam. Others are accused of preparing the attacks, which killed 130 people, or hiding Abdeslam from police. Some are presumed dead in Syria and were tried in absentia. Some acknowledged helping the assailants but said they were unaware of the overall attack plot.

Some of the men, including both key suspects, face charges in the related attacks in March 2016 on the Brussels airport and metro.
