The Belgian intelligence services are fully engaged in the investigation of a Belgian link in the attacks in Paris, in the night from Friday to Saturday. It is certainly one arrest made in our country, in particular in Molenbeek.(Near Brussels). There are currently multiple searches going on. It seems increasingly likely that one or more of the terrorists or accomplices come from our country. The attacks in Paris resulted at least 127 deaths. "Earlier this afternoon it was announced that eyewitnesses in Paris
saw ride terrorists in a car with Belgian number plate ," said VTM NEWS journalist Farouk Özgunes. "In That car was found a parking ticket on the commune of Molenbeek, which led investigators to the Brussels municipality." "Right now carry the investigators actions in Molenbeek, hoping to find some trace of the perpetrators and co-perpetrators of the attacks. In addition, the police are currently hunting for three people in a car that would be located in Brussels . "
How many people have been arrested and whether they were in Molenbeek at the same place , is not known . According to VRT , there are now five people arrested.
The federal prosecutor organizes tonight at 19 pm a press conference in connection with the attacks in Paris and the police operation in Molenbeek. Which takes place at the headquarters in Brussels.
Minister of Justice Koen Geens ( CD & V ) stated on Radio 1 a car with Belgian number plates was seen last night at the concert Bataclan in Paris . According to the minister , the car is rented rental car from Belgium .
French -language newspaper La Dernière Heure reported on its website that at least three of the eight terrorists come from Molenbeek
AFP has more on that story from earlier that a man arrested in Germany last week may have links to the Paris attack.
Bavaria's state premier Horst Seehofer has said there was "reason to believe" that the man, who was arrested with several weapons in southern Germany, has links to the attacks, reports the news agency.
Police confirmed they had arrested the man on November 5 during a routine check on a motorway, saying "many machine guns, revolvers and explosives" were found in the suspect's vehicle.
Focus Online reported that the arrested suspect was from Montenegro and that he has refused to speak in prison and not hired a lawyer to defend his case.
Seehofer said the arrest "shows how important it is for us to have some clarity on who is in our country and who is travelling through our country."
