Belgium charges two more suspects over Brussels bombing

Belgium has charged two new suspects with terrorist offences in connection with last month’s deadly Brussels airport and metro attacks, the federal prosecutor’s office said Tuesday.

A statement said Smail F. and Ibrahim F. were “charged with participation in the activities of a terrorist group, terrorist murders and attempts to commit terrorist murders.”

The prosecutor said there were “indications” the two men could be linked at an address in the Avenue des Casernes in the Etterbeek district of Brussels which was raided last week.

At the time, police said they found nothing at the address but reports later suggested that two men, one of whom later blew himself up in the Maalbeek metro station, may have stayed there or used it.

The second man, later identified by the authorities as Oasama K., was apparently also carrying a bomb but for reasons unknown did not go through with the attack.
