Brussels attacks: Man charged with terrorist offences

Belgian prosecutors have charged a man with terrorist offences, in connection with the deadly attacks in Brussels that left 31 dead. They named him as Faycal C, who was arrested on Thursday.

Suicide bombings, claimed by so-called Islamic State (IS), killed 11 people at Zaventem airport on 22 March. Twenty others died in an attack on the metro.

Zaventem – Brussels international airport – will not reopen before Tuesday, authorities have announced. Meanwhile a demonstration against the attacks, planned for Sunday in central Brussels, has been cancelled after a request from the authorities. Organisers said people’s security was a top priority.
