From Flora Drury and Jennifer Newton writing at The Daily Mail:

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 with Ibrahim El Bakraoui and Najim Laachraoui. However that has not been confirmed by Belgian prosecutors.
