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.
