    Belgian police have managed to arrest one more suspect in the Brussels terror attacks' case, the Belgian Federal Prosecutor's Office said Friday.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Belgian police have arrested one more suspect in the Brussels terror attacks' case, who is charged with terrorism offenses, the Belgian Federal Prosecutor's Office said Friday.

    According to the prosecutor's office, a 31-year-old Belgian citizen, identified as Ali E.H.A., was detained on Thursday in the Brussels district of Schaerbeek, where those who staged suicide bombings in the European capital used to live.

    "He has been arrested by a judicial investigator on charges of participating in the activity of a terrorist group, murder in the context of terrorism and attempted murder in the terrorism context both as an actual doer and an accomplice," the prosecutor's statement reads.

    On March 22, two explosions hit Brussels Airport. A third blast hit Maelbeek metro station near the headquarters of the EU institutions, killing over 30 people and injuring at least 300. The Daesh terrorist group, outlawed in many countries including Russia, claimed responsibility for the attack.
