WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) issued the following statement on the capture of Salah Abdeslam.

“Today Belgian law enforcement captured alive ISIS terrorist Salah Abdeslam, one of the suspected ringleaders of the deadly Paris attacks. Over the coming days authorities will interrogate this radical Islamic jihadist and I hope they will find answers to the many questions that still remain about that night and about any plans for more attacks in the future. May justice be swift and harsh on if he is found to be responsible for the loss of so many innocent lives that November night.”
