    PARIS - Anti-terrorism magistrates have completed a sweeping investigation into the November 13, 2015 attacks in the French capital. Four years after the devastating attacks claimed by ISIS, which killed 130 people in Paris and Saint-Denis, magistrates have announced the intention of closing the investigation ahead of a trial that will probably be held in Paris. The trial is not expected to start before the end of next year. A total of 14 people have been investigated, including 11 who are in preventive detention as they await trial. They include Salah Abdeslam, the only survivor of the jihadist commando that on November 13 carried out the deadly attacks. He is currently detained in the prison of Fleury-Mérogis in southern Paris.

    Arrest warrants have been issued against an additional five suspects, including some who are believed to have died in Syria and Iraq, such as the Clain brothers. On November 13, 2015, nine men carried out a coordinated attack over an area including the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, where a soccer match between France and Germany was ongoing, and several bars and restaurants and the Bataclan concert hall in the city center, killing 130 people and wounding 350 others. It was one of the bloodiest terror attacks ever carried out in Europe.
