Paris - France has requested the extradition of four suspects charged in Belgium over the November 13 attacks in Paris, including three accused of helping prime suspect Salah Abdeslam flee after the carnage, inquiry sources said on  Thursday.

The four suspects include Mohamed Amri and Hamza Attou, who were seen on CCTV driving Abdeslam to Brussels just hours after the Paris assaults. The third man is named as Ali Oulkadi, who dropped Abdeslam off at a Brussels address the day after the attacks, the sources told AFP.

The fourth man, Mohamed Bakkali, is thought to have played a logistical role in the jihadist cell, notably renting a BMW seen near three safe houses where the Paris attacks were prepared.

All four men are subject to European arrest warrants issued in late April, setting the stage for the extradition procedure.
