A French man wanted in connection with deadly terrorist attacks in Paris has been extradited from Bulgaria to France, where he is facing charges of links to terrorism, judicial officials say .

Fritz-Joly Joachin was arrested on January 1 on an unrelated warrant while trying to cross from Bulgaria into Turkey.

French police say the 19-year-old was an associate of the Kouachi brothers who killed 12 people in an attack on January 7 against newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Joachin is accused of participating in an organised crime group with a terrorist aim, and links to a network feeding fighters to Syria.

Officials said he arrived in France today and is expected to appear before a judge shortly.
