The militant network behind last month's attacks in Paris had links to people in Britain, the Wall Street Journal said on Friday, citing unidentified Western officials. Several people suspected of having connections to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Islamic State militant and alleged ringleader of the Nov. 13 attacks, are based in Britain, according to two Western officials, the Journal said. The officials told the Journal those people, including some of Moroccan heritage, were based in the Birmingham area, in central England, about 120 miles (190 km) from London.
