    People hug in front of Ainay's cathedral during the funeral ceremony of Caroline Prenat, one of the victims of Paris' terrorist attacks, on November 23, 2015 in Lyon.

    French authorities have taken 165 people into custody and indicted 124 in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, the country’s interior minister said on Tuesday.

    The officials didn’t say what the indictments were related to or whether they were directly linked to the attacks. France imposed a state of emergency hours after the Nov. 13 attacks that left 130 dead and injured hundreds.

    Along with the people who have been detained, authorities there have also conducted 1,233 searches and seized close to 200 arms — including "weapons of war" such as automatic rifles and explosives, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told parliament.

    In nearby Brussels, the city has been on high alert as well.
