Live from Brussels: Abdeslam convicted

Salah Abdeslam was convicted today in a Belgian court for a firefight with Brussels police in March 2016. Abdeslam had spent months on the run before he was discovered hiding out in an apartment in Southern Brussels in March 2015, and as a firefight ensued he and an accomplice managed to escape. Days later he was apprehended in Molenbeek, a development which authorities say led to the planned Brussels attacks being carried out days later, earlier than planned.
