Paris - Four men were charged with belonging to a terrorist organisation and one was charged with illegal possession of weapons in connection with a series of terrorist attacks in Paris this month, prosecutor Francois Molins told a press conference on Wednesday.

The four had been detained last week, and brought before the court to prolong their detention on the charges on Tuesday. The prosecutor said none of them is being investigated for murder.

According to Molins, all four remain in custody. The AFP news agency reported that three of them are "in provisional detention, in accordance with requests from prosecutors".

Another is subject to an order of provisional imprisonment, the prosecutor said, pending an appearance before a specialized magistrate at the end of the week.
