German authorities have charged a 24-year-old Moroccan of being part of a network that planned Paris attacks last year. The man was allegedly responsible for looking after the group’s safe houses in Greece and Turkey…

Police arrested the suspected member of the “Islamic State” (IS) militia, Redouane S., in the northwest state of Lower Saxony on Tuesday.

German prosecutors claim that the Moroccan was linked with Abdelhamid Abaaoud,  the instigator of terror strikes that killed some 130 people in Paris in November 2015. The Belgian national was gunned down in the shootout with the Paris police days after the attack.

The group allegedly tasked Redouane S. to rent apartments in Turkey and Greece while the Paris attacks were planned. Members of the terror cell used the locations as hideouts “for the preparation of attacks.”
