Prosecutors gave no further details on how he was related to the attacks.

Some 129 people were killed and dozens left injured after coordinated attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, the Saint-Denis Stadium as well as cafes and bars across the city.

Lawyers for Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam have quit.

Abdeslam is the only known survivor from the terror group suspected of being behind the killings of 130 people last November.

He has been in solitary confinement for a year but has told his lawyers he will not speak and no longer wants representation.

His legal team said Abdeslam is refusing to talk due to the 24-hour-a-day camera monitoring in his high-security jail.

Abdeslam fled to his native Belgium after the attacks but was later extradited.
