Morocco has issued an arrest warrant for Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris.

Moroccan authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Salah Abdeslam, the Paris attack suspect who is at the center of an international manhunt, according to the Moroccan police.

The warrant was issued at the end of November. A Moroccan security source said it was not clear whether Abdeslam had fled to Morocco or elsewhere in North Africa. Last month, German police launched a search after getting a tip that he was there.

Abdeslam, whose brother blew himself up in the November 13 Paris attacks that killed at least 130 people, has been on the run ever since. As a French citizen, he can travel freely in the European Union's Schengen area where there are no border controls.
