Belgium charges new suspects over Brussels attacks

A Belgian police officer on patrol during an anti-terror raid in the Schaerbeek-Schaarbeek district of Brussels, on March 25, 2016Belgium has charged two new suspects over last month’s Brussels airport and metro bombings and made three fresh arrests in the probe into the November Paris attacks, prosecutors said Tuesday. Investigators have uncovered a tangled web of links between the Paris and Brussels attacks, with many of the same people involved and linked to the Islamic State (IS) group in Syria which claimed both. The two suspects, named as Smail F. and Ibrahim F., were “charged with participation in the activities of a terrorist group, terrorist murders and attempts to commit terrorist murders, as a perpetrator, co-perpetrator or accomplice,” a statement from the prosecutors said.
