BRUSSELS - A Belgian national named only as Y.A. was charged on Saturday with participating in the activities of a terrorist group in connection with a joint Belgian-French investigation into a foiled attack plot.

Federal prosecutors said in a statement that the 33-year-old had appeared on Friday before a judge, who had remanded him to custody. He was detained late on Thursday.

Prosecutors said the charge related to the investigation into Reda Kriket, a Frenchman arrested in a Paris suburb on March 24 and suspected of planning an imminent act of "extreme violence".
