Paris attack

Morocco arrests Muslim ‘directly linked’ to ISIS terrorists who massacred 130 in November Paris attacks

A Belgian man accused of being linked to the ISIS terrorists who massacred 130 people in Paris has been arrested in Morocco.

Government bosses say the man, who is of Moroccan origin, was arrested in the town of Al-Muhammadiyah near the city of Casablanca.

Morocco’s interior minister gave only the militant’s initial in Arabic and said he fought in Syria with al-Nusra front before joining ISIS.

The suspect spent time in Syria getting military training and building relationships with IS field commanders, ‘including the mastermind’ of the Paris attacks, and others who threatened attacks in France and Belgium, the ministry said in a statement.
