Two men arrested in Austria 'may be linked to Paris terror attacks'

Austrian authorities are investigating two men arrested several days ago for possible links to the Paris terror attacks, which killed 130 people.

State prosecutor Robert Holzleitner said the pair - arrested during the weekend in a migrants' shelter in Salzburg - are suspected of "participation in a terrorist organisation", with investigations focused on their possible connection to the November 13 attacks.

Mr Holzleitner said the suspects arrived in Europe from the Middle East but refused to give further details, saying that would jeopardise the investigation.
