Morocco says it has arrested a Belgian of Moroccan descent with direct links to the Islamist gunmen and bombers who carried out the Paris attacks.

The man was detained near Casablanca on Friday, the interior ministry said, and had traveled from Syria via Turkey, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

He had fought in Syria with al-Nusra front before joining so-called Islamic State, Morocco said.

The Moroccan interior ministry's statement did not name the suspect, but gave his initials in Arabic, which could be translated as either GA or JA.

The statement said the man, arrested in Mohammediya, had travelled to Syria "with one of the suicide bombers of Saint-Denis".

The Moroccan statement said the arrested man had "built solid ties with IS leaders, including the ringleader of the Paris attacks". Read the full story here.
