The sister of a jihadist killed in a terror raid in Belgium last year has been arrested and charged with terrorist activity, a prosecutor said on Monday.


Chaimaa Amghar, 20, was arrested in the Brussels district of Molenbeek on September 21 after police traced social media messages indicating she was attempting to "commit acts of terror-linked crimes in a conflict zone," the source said.


The suspect is the sister of Sofiane Amghar, one of two suspected Islamic State members killed in a raid in the eastern city of Verviers in January 2015.


Prosecutors later said the group was was under the orders of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the ringleader of the terror cell that attacked Paris on November 13, 2015.
