Belgium on Saturday charged a third suspect with "participating in the activities of a terrorist group" over a foiled plot to attack France, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

They named the suspect only as 35-year-old Y.A., but gave no further details. Two others -- Abderrahmane A. and Rabah M. -- are also being held in Belgium over the same plot.

The main plot suspect is Reda Kriket, who was arrested near Paris last week after police found an arsenal of weapons and explosives at his home.
