Officers with France's DCRI domestic intelligence agency on Tuesday arrested a Paris woman suspected of links to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

A source close to the investigation said the woman was arrested around 6:30 am (0430 GMT) at her apartment in the working-class Belleville district of Paris.

She was arrested as part of a preliminary investigation into a conspiracy to commit “terrorist acts,” the source said, without providing further details.

Based in Yemen, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is considered one the deadliest franchises of the international militant network.
