BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgium's federal prosecutor said a man held since last November in connection with the Nov 13 Paris attacks would be released on Friday (April 8) under strict conditions.

Abdellah C, a 35-year-old Belgian national, accompanied one of the Paris attacks suspects, Mohamed Abrini, to the airport when the latter left to fight in Syria, state broadcaster RTBF reported.

His lawyer told Reuters he denied any involvement.
