An image from a YouTube video posted in 2014 shows Faycal Cheffou. A source close to the inquiry told AFP that Cheffou was the man charged with terrorist murder but named only as Faycal C. by Belgium's federal prosecutorThe sole person charged so far in Belgium’s terror attacks, Faycal C, lived in a four-story townhouse on a quiet residential street a stone’s throw from the European Union’s headquarters. Listed as an ‘art nouveau’ wonder by turn-of-the-19th-century Belgian architect Franz Tilley, it lies just a few hundred yards away from the huge European Commission buildings. On a list of tenants by the door is scrawled the name “Faycal Cheffou”, but no one answers the bell.
