Terror suspect Salah Abdeslam has told Belgian investigators he was planning to "restart something" from Brussels.

Belgian foreign minister Didier Reynders said that Abdeslam told police "he was ready to restart something from Brussels, and it's maybe the reality".

Mr Reynders said authorities are taking the claim seriously because "we found a lot of weapons, heavy weapons in the first investigations, and we have seen a new network of people around him in Brussels".

Abdeslam, captured on Friday in a police raid in Brussels, was charged on Saturday with "terrorist murder" by Belgian authorities. He is a top suspect in the November 13 attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.
