A Moroccan man suspected to have links with 2015 Paris attacks has been arrested in Germany.
According to the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, 24-year-old Redouane S. is being accused of being a member of the Islamic State cell that carried out deadly attacks in Paris last year.
By convention, suspects in Germany are identified by the first name and initial.
The Moroccan national is also being accused of renting flats in Turkey and Greece between October 2014 and Spring 2015 that were used by cell members to plan the attacks.
Prosecutors said he knew about a meeting of cell members in Verviers, Belgium on January 15, 2015 where Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a main coordinator of the attacks, chaired a meeting to plan the attacks in Paris on Nov. 13 last year.
“Even after his return to Germany in May 2015 he was in contact with the group led by Abaaoud and showed readiness to take more orders,” they wrote in the statement.
