Brussels - Two of the gunmen who died in the Paris terrorist attacks lived in the Belgian capital Brussels, the Belga news agency quotes prosecution sources as saying.

One lived in the centre of Brussels, while the other was a resident of the Molenbeek neighbourhood. Both had the French nationality, Belga writes.

It also says that a total of seven people have been taken into custody by Belgian authorities as part of the investigations into the Paris attacks. It is still being verified whether they were directly involved.
