Belgium Charges 2 More Linked to Brussels Attacks

VOA News

A statement from the federal prosecutor’s office identified those charged with terrorism offenses as Smail F. and Ibrahim F., saying they were linked to renting an apartment that may have been used a safe house by one of the Brussels bombers.

The attacks involved a pair of suicide bombings at Brussels Airport and another bombing at a metro station in Brussels.

Police have arrested six other people, including Mohamed Abrini, who was seen on the airport’s video surveillance system alongside the two suicide bombers.

Abrini was also linked to the November attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

Belgian prosecutors said the Brussels attackers were planning to hit France again, but decided to launch a quick attack on Brussels after the arrest of key Paris suspect, Salah Abdeslam.
