suspectGreat! Now find his friends and arrest them, too.

Belgian prosecutors have arrested and charged a new suspect in the Brussels terror attacks.

The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement today that a man identified as Faycal Cheffou, was one of six men detained in a police raid on Thursday.

The statement added that he has been charged with for ‘involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist killings and attempted terrorist killings’.

Belgium media reports suggest Cheffou, a freelance journalist, is the third bomber pictured walking through Brussels Airport before the attacks. However that has not been confirmed by Belgian prosecutors.

But one source close to the investigation, said: ‘That is a hypothesis the investigators are working on.’

Reports in the Belgian media also say that the taxi driver who took the suicide bombers to the airport on Tuesday morning has said he believes the man wearing the white jacket and hat is Cheffou.
