A Belgian man who had a “direct relationship” to the Paris attackers has been arrested in Morocco, according to the country’s interior ministry.

The ministry said in a statement that the man, who is of Moroccan descent, was arrested near Casablanca on Monday after travelling through Turkey, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.

The statement did not identify the suspect or explain his suspected relationship to the attackers.

Several of the attackers who killed 130 people in Paris on November 13 last year had Moroccan origins.
