Brussels blasts: New suspect, Belgian prosecutors issue warrant
Brussels: Belgian prosecutors issued an arrest warrant on Saturday for a new suspect in the attacks on the Brussels airport and subway as authorities moved to clean up damage caused by the explosions.
The federal prosecutor’s office said a warrant has been issued for a man only identified as Faycal C. He is wanted for “involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist killings and attempted terrorist killings,” the statement said.
A police raid was conducted at his home. No arms or explosives were found, prosecutors said. Belgian media are reporting that a man called Faycal Cheffou has been identified as the man suspected of fleeing Brussels airport after two alleged accomplices blew themselves up there.
The developments come as officials moved to assess the damage caused by twin explosions at the terminal. Authorities have wrapped up their investigation, and will allow engineers into the building to check its structural safety.
