Belgian police have arrested several people after raiding properties throughout the capital. But Salah Abdeslam, who is wanted in connection with the Paris terror attacks, remains at large. This is day three of a security lockdown in Brussels.
Brussels police arrested around 50 youths for looting stores after a large protest against the Libyan slave trade. Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon pledged "zero tolerance" for troublemakers.
A Brussels court has agreed to send Salah Abdeslam, thought to be the sole surviving Paris attacker, to France. Abdeslam, a Molenbeek resident, also appears to have had links to the Brussels attackers.
Authorities in Belgium have charged a man with terror offenses over the deadly March 2016 suicide bombings in Brussels. The announcement comes after a day of counter-terrorism raids in which several people were detained.
Lawyers for the sole surviving suspect amongst Islamists responsible for killing 130 people in Paris last November have said they will no longer defend him. Suspect Salah Abdeslam is refusing to speak.
