Brussels, March 21 (IANS) Salah Abdeslam, the Paris attacks suspect who was arrested on Friday in Belgium, said he had been planning to “restart something in Brussels”, Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said on Sunday.

Addressing a forum here on Sunday, the foreign minister said it maybe the reality as security forces found “a lot of weapons” in the operation led to Abdeslam’s arrest in the Belgian capital, Xinhua reported.

The suspect had a network around him, Reynders said.

Abdeslam was charged on Saturday with “terrorist murders and participation in the activities of a terrorist group,” said the Belgian federal prosecutor’s office.

Abdeslam, one of the most wanted men in Europe, is suspected of involvement in attacks in Paris as a logistician. These attacks killed 130 people in Paris on November 13, 2015.
