Belgian Prosecutors Identify Safe Houses Used by Paris Attackers

VOA News

Belgian prosecutors say they have identified three homes that were used as safe houses by suspects believed to have carried out the November 13 terror attacks in Paris.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that they have found houses in the city of Charleroi, the village of Auvelais, and a previously identified apartment in the Schaerbeek neighborhood of Brussels.

Authorities think all three places were used to prepare the Paris attacks. The Schaerbeek place is believed to have been used to make suicide belts.

The Belgian prosecutor’s office said Wednesday that all three places were rented under false names and paid for in cash.

The November 13 attacks were carried out across Paris and killed some 130 people.
