The Federal Prosecution Office in Brussels says it can confirm that arrested terror suspect Mohamed Abrini was the third man present at Brussels Airport during the March 22 suicide bombings there.
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.
Mohamed Abrini has been formally charged with his alleged involvement in the 2015 Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people. His lawyers criticized the French court case as Abrini is already facing charges Belgium.
Belgian prosecutors have charged a 30-year-old in connection with terror attacks in Paris and Belgium. The suspect is related to others implicated in the attacks.
Belgium's federal prosecutor has said the man behind a bombing at Brussels Central Station may have supported the so-called "Islamic State." Investigators also found materials used to make explosives in the man's home.
