Key suspect in Paris attacks arrested in Belgium

Belgian authorities have made “several arrests” Friday in connection with the March 22 terror attacks at a Brussels airport and metro station that left 32 people dead, the prosecutor’s office said.

Although the prosecutor’s office stopped short of giving the names of those arrested, French police officials confirmed to the Associated Press that Mohamed Abrini, a key suspect in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, was among them.

Abrini, a 31-year-old Belgian national, is the last identified suspect in the Paris attacks five months ago, in which 130 people were killed. ISIS has claimed responsibility for both attacks in Brussels and Paris.

Belgian officials released additional video footage of a “man in the hat,” the third suspected Brussels attacker that remains at large. A French police official told the AP that Abrini is believed to be that third man shown in the surveillance footage.
