BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Belgian prosecutors are investigating the involvement of Mohammed Abrini, who was detained on Friday, in November's terrorist attacks as well as the Brussels Airport attack, local media said Saturday.
Abrini may also be the man wearing a hat who had been recorded on security camera footage in the Brussels Airport several minutes before the attacks March 22 walking alongside two suicide bombers, Radio Contact reported.
The series of deadly terrorist attacks carried out across Paris on November 13 claimed 130 lives and injured over 350 people. Paris terrorist attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam was detained on March 18.
Less than a week after Abdeslam’s arrest, on March 22, two suicide bomb blasts hit Brussels international airport and an another explosion shook Maelbeek metro station in the city, which killed over 30 people and injured more than 300.
