LONDON — The investigation into the extensive involvement of Belgians in the Paris terrorist attacks widened on Thursday with news that a 30-year-old Belgian man had been arrested on murder and terrorism charges.

The man, identified only as Abdoullah C., was detained on Tuesday just outside the Molenbeek neighborhood of Brussels, where many of the people involved in the attacks lived or had ties. Officials said they had not announced the arrest right away to avoid tipping off possible accomplices.
