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.
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.
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.
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.
Three men detained after raids in Brussels have been released without charges. Four raids took place, but no arms or explosives were found, according to a spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor's office.
