    Belgian law enforcement on Friday detained the seventh suspect in the Brussels terrorist attacks in the Forest area of the city, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Late on Thursday, the federal prosecutor’s office announced that six people had been detained in the Belgian capital during search operations in the communes of Jette and Schaerbeek.

    According to the Standaard newspaper, a policeman recognized the seventh suspect to be arrested after watching footage taken from surveillance cameras in the metro that showed the suspect talking to Khalid Bakraoui, the suicide bomber who carried out the Maelbeek station blast.

    On Tuesday, two suicide blasts hit the departures hall of Brussels' Zaventem international airport and an explosion shook a subway carriage at the Maelbeek station, close to the EU institutions, killing at least 31 people and injuring over 300.
