BRUSSELS — New suspect linked to bombings in Brussels on March 22 was captured following an inquiry in Brussels, said the Belgian government prosecutor’s office in a statement on Friday.

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office said an apartment in the Schaerbeek area of Brussels was searched the previous day and a man detained and charged with participation in the activities of a terrorist group, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder.

A search, as part of the investigation into Brussels attacks, was launched on Thursday in the apartment in the Schaerbeek in Brussels, Xinhua reported.

According to the statement of the federal prosecutor, the suspect is 31-years-old Belgian national Ali E.H.E.

The individual was placed under arrest and charged with participation in a terrorist group, murder in a terrorist context and attempted murder in a terrorist context, as author, co-author or accomplice, the statement said.

Prosecutors said no further information would be divulged so as not to hamper the investigation of the March 22 attacks, which were claimed by the Islamic State group.

“No further information can be communicated at this time,” emphasised the federal prosecutor’s office in the statement.

This is the seventh suspect placed under arrest in connection with the investigation into the attacks of metro and airport of Brussels on March 22, which left 32 people dead.

The other six suspects, Mohamed Abrini, Osama Krayem, the brothers Smail and Ibrahim Farisi, Bilal El Makhoukhi and Herve B. M, saw their arrest warrant extended for one month by the Brussels council chamber on Thursday.
