French officials said Friday they had foiled a terror attack by a suspect who had been convicted in Belgium alongside Abdelhamid Abaaoud, suspected ringleader of November's terror attacks in Paris.Among those who went to Syria through the network were Abaaoud and another Paris attacker, Chakib Akrouh.Police in Belgium and Paris are still piecing together the potential links between the November attacks and those in Brussels this week.Abaaoud was killed five days later in a police raid outside Paris, during which Akrouh blew himself up, also killing Abaaoud's female cousin.Cazeneuve said earlier in March that France has foiled at least six potential attacks since extremists struck in January 2015, killing 17 people at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine and a Jewish supermarket.
