Paris attacks: Man arrested in Belgium on suspicion of carrying out terror attacks

A man has been arrested in Belgium by police investigating last month's Paris attacks.

The 22-year-old man was held in the capital in Brussels on suspicion of being involved in the atrocities.

The man, a Belgian national born in 1993 and identified only as Ayoub B, was detained on Wednesday following a search in the Molenbeek neighbourhood of Brussels, where some of the Paris attackers lived.

He is the 10th person to be arrested so far in the country's probe.

The attacks on November 13 left 130 dead and hundreds injured.
