Belgian police have arrested a 22-year-old man alleged to be linked to the November 13 terror attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.

Police announced the arrest on Thursday, saying the Belgian national is charged with terrorist murder and participation in the activities of a terrorist group.

The man was arrested in Brussels' Molenbeek neighborhood, where some of the Paris attackers lived.

The Associated Press reports about 10 cell phones were seized during the search.
