The sole surviving suspect in the 2015 Paris terror attacks was sentenced to 20 years in prison Monday on separate charges. 

A Belgian court found Salah Abdeslam guilty of attempted murder over a shootout with police shortly before his arrest in 2016 for the Paris attacks. His co-defendant also received a 20-year prison sentence.

Abdeslam's currently being held in a French jail, awaiting another trial for his alleged role in the attacks themselves, which left 130 people dead and hundreds more injured. A date has not been announced for those proceedings.
